State Of Decay, much better than I thought it would be.
The driving is a bit naff though.

Your thoughts?
I'd play Catherine personally. Its a really unique puzzle game that I really enjoyed. Once you get the puzzle mechanics down its a brilliant game.
I've taken your advice.
So far, I really like the puzzles. But I'm afraid I might find it a bit repetitive if I keep playing, unless there's something new coming. But it feels like a different kind of game and just for that, I'm glad I started it.

Played Red Dead Redemption for a bit, getting the few achievements I needed to reach a 90% completion ratio

It's been Diablo 3 reaper of souls of late. Bloody excellent game, highly recommended.

Drakengard 3. The graphics are bad, frame rate sloppy, camera hilarious and it's a bit repetitive. For some reason I really like it though :)

Raw Danger was released in europe. It is quite hard to find, though.
I had to get a copy from eBay Italy. Fortunately the text was in English.

Catherine get really different later on with the Boss chase scene's and all the extra tiles and ways of tackling things; Ice, spike crumbling blocks.. I played it so much when I closed my eye's I could see the blocks being moved

Lord of Shadows 2 seems odd playing as Dracula and you have to hide from everybody but the story and voice acting is superb... I got to the female Vampire boss and thought the game had glitched on me as I couldn't hit her and those other monsters kept re-spawning was close to snapping the disc.. Then I realised holding the R3 button I can absorb the souls and actually hit her.. I'm really liking it and I hated the first game actually feels like a Castlevania game so far

On to uncharted 3. Seems ok so far, my expectations are lowered considerably after UC2. So many people claiming it as a classic when all I got was an above average 3rd person shooter with fiddly controls. Now I know what to expect I'm not picking faults as much.

I think the general opinion of 3 is that it is not as good as 2 but with slightly better visuals if that matters to you. :D

I've started playing Gotham Imposers (or whatever its called) the XBLA freebie... I had no idea what it was, but was quite impressed with an online FPS. Its silly and pretty shallow, but has kept me entertained for the last few evenings - fiddly menus though.

That's basically my impression of it. I still very much enjoyed it (some great set pieces) but it wasn't as good as Uncharted 2 in my opinion.

Picked up a facebook game bundle (after complaining we never get anyone selling games round here) so now im playing WuTang Taste the Pain and Contra Legacy of War. Still quite enjoying Wutang but Contra is not what i had hoped for. A whole rucksack full of games for a fiver,including all 3 spyro games, cant be too bad.
