    I've never gotten around to playing Awakening, because it's only available as a digital download on the PS3 in Europe, and they're charging about twice as much for it than for any of the disc versions. If EA ever decides to give it a significant price drop before DA:2 (which I do have on preorder) comes out, I'll pick it up, but otherwise I'll just skip it.

    I'm multi-tasking finishing old games and working on current ones to make trade credit for LBP2 and Gran Turismo. Almost done Lego Rockband but it'll be a while before i can do that solo on expert for final countdown. Working on Mag to get the level 60 trophies so I can return to S.V.E.R full time. Just finished Uncharted 2 on Hard and working on Crushing while finding treasures I missed.
    So I guess most Recent would be Lego Rockband for PS3, and Free Running for the wii both are a lot of fun.

    I got the Ultimate edition Dragon Age since I had never got the downloads or Awakening. Now I have em all plus Awakening plus dragon armor for Origins and Mass effect2 lol. All for the same price as my original Origins, well worth the trade

    I played the demo a few months ago and thought it seemed fun and exciting but was somewhat skeptic about the game's length and replayability. What do you think, is there replay value in the game and how long does a playthrough last?
    I'd say if you liked the premise of the game, the demo being the 1st chapter of something like 14, you could at the very least give it a rent. The story only gets better as you go further into the game.
    As for the re-playability of the game that depends on the way you start it. I started on easy to get through the story without worrying about getting stuck somewhere. I intend to going back and play it again on a higher difficulty. The game's story is linear, so there aren't any alternate outcomes so you won't have to worry about multiple play-throughs to get the entire experience.

    Well, I just rented Fable III just a few minutes ago from my local movie renting place. Hopefully I enjoy it.

    I like it so far, if that's any help.

    Well, I never got around to playing Fable. But I played Fable II when I learned about the "episodes" thing they did and basically fell in love with Fable II. How is this compared to F2?

    Well, combat is largely unchanged (combining spells and longer range guns, I suppose). I like the way that interacting has been redone, and the addition of relationship quests (to become friends with people) is cool, even if they are usually simple fetch quests. Small plot spoiler (if you haven't been reading up on what Molyneaux was saying during game production): I haven't gotten to this point, but I've heard that the part of the story where you play as King is very fun, but also very short. The "elimination of menus" thing that was so hyped is strange. I guess the things that are usually found in menus are better streamlined into the game, but saving/loading is a little more of a hassle than normal. All in all, if you liked Fable II, you should like Fable III.

    Fallout 3
    Currently helping Three Dog with replacing the relay dish on the Washington Monument. The trip there nearly killed me. I came across a raider base in the subway and the turrets there chewed up my health. I might risk returning via aboveground. At least I got a better shotgun off of one of the raiders.

    Anybody tried out "Bloody Good Time" yet? 400msp seems like a reasonable price for it but I've heard the game is pretty mediocre.

    If I remember correctly, there is a spot in a nearby wrecked building where you can cherry pick those Super Mutants... Problem is, you need to clear the building first. I Could be mistaken though; my memory of that point in the game is fuzzy.

    I finished all the road challenges in RB3 the other night and got to see the entire HMX team pictures in the credits.

    I also have been playing Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. The apprentice is totally bad-ass in the game but the game is short as everybody says. The final battle with Vader is fun, but not super hard. Granted, I haven't played it on Unleashed difficulty yet.

    Now I am playing Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions. It plays well and has elements that remind me of the Batman Arkham Asylum game. BUT I HATE the camera when I am crawling on walls. Good graphics, fun combat and lots of upgrades.

    I tried the demo and HATED it. I'd say give it a go and see what you think.

    AC: Brotherhood's multiplayer is surprisingly fun. I especially love how the game really rewards stealthy kills and clever maneuvering rather than running around like and idiot and stabbing at anything that moves.

    I've been playing Rock Band 3 of course, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, a really fun shooter game for the Wii.

    Where is it in relation to the Museum of Technology? I might need to find it since I'm getting low on Stimpacks and food.

    I thought MP3 was more of an Adventure or Action game. I mean, since there are puzzles and such in addition to combat.

    I think it was straight across from there, on the other side of the park. It's before you get the memorial.

    Edit: West of the museum of tech and slightly north., it's across the national mall. (So look out for super mutants) It's in the museum of history.

    Oh, you'll also see a friendly ghoul on patrol out front.

    Fable III. I'm absolutely loving it. Hopefully I can beat this sucker before Thursday (because that's when it's due back). If I can't, then I'll have to rent it for another week or maybe just 3 days.

    I just got ME2 in the mail today. 2 days is a new speed record for Amazon free delivery, odd how I get my stuff a lot faster over here than when I still lived in the second biggest city in Belgium.

    Will probably combine playing that with more AC:Brotherhood online fun. I have just discovered how fun it is to lure assailants, smoke bomb them as they get near and then smack 'em upside the head for being so bloody obvious.

    Battlefield 1943

    Simple, yet enjoyable. If you have any interest in the game, it is still discounted at 600 points.
