Hey guys, long time no see! All right, just a couple of months I guess. I'm back and feel like spamming this thread a bit.
Anyway, I just finished Dead Space
on Hard. It was okay, but it didn't awe me or anything like that. The last battle however, while piss easy, has that "incredibly epic" feel to it. The whole game feels like Resident Evil 4-5 to some extent, something among the lines of suspense-action. I wouldn't play it again though, but it was a nice rent. It's a good enough game to get for what it offers, you have enough weapons to mess around with.
I also finished Alan Wake
some weeks ago. Man, was the game boring. Its combat is repetitive. You don't have many weapons and only kill about 3-4 kinds of enemies. The story doesn't particularly make up for it. While its concept is pretty good, I find the execution to be rather crappy. The voice acting (which should be top notch in a game like this) isn't good enough, I mean it's not shitty by any means, but just falls short of what it could've been. I can't really identify what the problem is, but it just 'feels' like it could have been better. The game has collectibles that serve no purpose other than achievements. I would only recommend it to a die hard fan of suspense, and perhaps horror novels.
And God of War 3.
The combat is plain boring, really. The fun part about this game is watching it in HD. The graphics are amazing and watching Kratos disemboweling a Centaur is some violent-stupid fun. If you don't like extreme violence, there's no point in playing this. The platforming isn't particularly fun and as said, the combat is very boring. You might as well play Ninja Gaiden or Bayonetta to get good combat. The game has amazing graphics and the sheer size of some enemies makes it a sight to behold. It was worth my rental, but no way I'm playing through it again.
I have Lost Odyssey
waiting for me and will start playing it today or tomorrow. 4 discs... I knew the box was too heavy.
Regularly, I also play Bad Company 2
. The single player is average, but the multiplayer is where it's at. Seriously, it can be damn fun. Anyone that likes team based multiplayer should get this. The maps are huge, there are vehicles (land, air, and water) and 4 'kits' (classes) to choose from.

StarCraft 2, latest video. I just want this game so bad
If you disagree, you are wrong.
