Brutal Legend - looks great and of course the soundtrack is awesome (no Iron Maiden or Metallica though). Blending hack n slash with RTS is an interesting idea, but I could never get into the latter portions. I just couldn't get the hang of ordering units around, if they even bothered to obey you at all. I just played through on the lowest difficulty to get those bits out the way and enjoy it more for the experience and soundtrack

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. A very enjoyable game which I finished earlier tonight. Pretty easy, but that's the way I like 'em. :P

I loved the world of Brutal Legend. One of the few games I actually bothered getting all the collectables, more as an excuse to explore the world and listen to the amazing soundtrack (I was also a bit gutted at the lack of Iron Maiden in the soundtrack). I really didn't like the RTS stuff though, it never felt like it worked when I played it, to many things mapped to buttons that weren't explained properly and as a result I could never get my head round what I was supposed to be doing later in the game. If the game had been a pure action game without the RTS bit I'd no doubt have enjoyed it way more.

I think it got a release on the PC as well. I've still not got round to completing it myself, from what little I played when I tried I did like the atmosphere and setting. It reminded me of a blend of Kuon and Silent Hill.

If it was a more traditional Command & Conquer style I would have enjoyed it more. As it was I never developed any strategy beyond throwing every unit forward at once and hope they win

AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGHHH! Asuras Wrath. Fun little game despite being too short and the 70/30 cutscene to gameplay ratio.
Don't think!....Feel!.

After 140 hours in game time, i'm finally done with Tales of Graces F. There's still plenty to do in terms of sidequests and overpowered secret bosses but i think i've had my fill for now.

It was brilliant but i think i preferred Tales of the Abyss. Way too much messing around in menus for Graces.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

I completed Uncharted 3 on Hard difficulty. Didn't know how this game would turn out and I've been impress with it. Although the campaign was incredibly exceptional, it did felt quite short. But still it kept to that route as you going to expect such epic scale from it.

The first time I played Axelay I thought it was broken.
