I'll send you a friend request later tonight, although I'm a bit of a useless XBOX friend really as I'm hardly on it!

Been playing Valkyria Chronicles on the PS3 lately. Just started, so I'm only at the 3rd or 4th mission or something, but I'm enjoying it alot. Great (japanese) voices as well. :)

Also been playing NHL09 a bit, which is just a very fun game to waste some time with. Reminds me of the good old days when I played EA Hockey on the Megadrive :)
Sadly, it seems you can't break the glass or bodycheck opponents over the boards anymore... :(

What's your XBOX tag? HongKongsFinest?

Finished "GTA: The Lost and Damned" and "GTA: The Ballad of Gay Tony". TLAD was kinda weird. The city looked very dark. TBOGT is awesome. I loved every bit of it. Yusuf Amir is one of the funniest employers ever. Crazy rich Arab. Love the mission where you gotta disconnect the front waggon of a subway train and Yusuf comes in a helicopter to steal it. He has all the money in the world, yet he needs to steal the train, because his museum in Dubai only exhibits the original thing.
Also, I love his golden war helicopter.

GTA: The Lost and Damned - 3/5 - Good story and nice missions, but beautiful Liberty City looks very dirty and kinda different, too.

GTA: The Ballad of Gay Tony - 5/5 - Awesome missions, good storyline, funny dialogues, Liberty City looks better than ever, drug wars, basejumping, repeatable missions.

Both games feature crossovers to each other and to GTA IV during some missions. It's nice seeing Nico Bellic again and seeing the aftermath in the museum mission. Upon seeing all the dead people that you killed in GTA IV as Nico Bellic, your character in "The Lost and Damned" says, "Damn! I wouldn't want this Nico-guy coming after me!" :D

LD, in TLAD, you can go into your options, and turn of the filter that makes the city look all dirty. ;)

Ah, you're right. There is someone who added me with the name of HongKongsFinest and I just don't know who that could be.

I just finished off my replay of Mass Effect 1 (PC) as a Renegade. Can't wait to import that save into Mass Effect 2, I have the Collector's Edition tin on pre-order.

I've been play the PC Multiplayer beta of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Fuck me, this game is awesome, I'm so buying this. So much better than that piece of high latency shit Modern Warfare 2.

EDIT: Sorry, meant HIGH latency.

I've been playing the 360 demo of BF:BC2 and loving it too. I also want in on the PC beta so I can decide which system to get it for. Or maybe both? I've got the 360 version pre-ordered for £23 but I'm tempted to get PC aswell. Where did you get your beta key EvaUnit02?

BFBC2 PC beta footage montage - 10mins, HD resolution.

Just in case you wanted to see the game in motion.

Been playing Batman Arkham Asylum the last few days, which is VERY good. There are times when it gets a little repetitive, but usually at those points the game throws something nice your way, like the excellent Scarecrow levels.

Great game. I'm only at about 20% I think, but the gameplay, story, voiceacting, graphics, etc etc are all excellent.

Heavy Rain, well I was until I tried to load my saved game last night but it refuses to. I can't believe they'd release a game so faulty that many players can't even load their saved game :roll:

Mine was for the most part, except it did crash at one point. But once you get a certain way through the game, it's quite likely you won't be able to load it from what I gather.

Today I finally finished Prey on PC. Its quite a long game at 23 levels. Some parts were pretty interesting - the level design feels quite fresh when you get to walk on walls & gravity changes all around you. The puzzles, for the most part, were not too complex, but occasionally I was thinking what the hell do I do now?!

Pretty good.

If anyone experiences any problems with Heavy Rain, or knows someone who has, please can you use this: http://heavyrainisfalling.com/

Loads of us can't even use the game, it's ridiculous.

My girlfriend had her Wii modded, and yesterday I have finally played Mario Galaxy! Nice game :) .

Most of the other games on her HDD were absolute crap though.
