ayashi: (LA Noire)
I beat L.A. Noire last night! It was really awesome. The game started out pretty slow but the end was a flurry of detective activity. I had a lot of fun with it and while it wasn't better than Red Dead Redemption, it was still a pretty damn good game. Now I just have to work on some achievements :)

Just got home with my Starcraft II Collector's Edition. Which is awesome.

Load up battle.net to add my Starcraft II CD key and... I'm also in the Cataclysm Beta YEAHHHH.

Except I can't install either game on my stupid laptop. Sigh :P

What are your favorite 2-player video games? (Something that can be played on either two PCs or one XBOX/PS3/any other system)

Preferably co-op. Competitive is okay but it drastically reduces the chances of Chris and I playing it because competition between us usually devolves into one of us being pissed off at the other one :P

Some games we have played together co-op:
Gears of War (1 and 2)
Resident Evil 5
Eternal Sonata (this one is not so great co-op)
World of Warcraft
Warcraft III
Diablo II
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
Rock Band
Super Mario Bros. Wii

I especially loved playing Gears of War, Diablo II and Resident Evil 5 together. (Borderlands was fun, but not as fun for some reason. I kind of hated the Borderlands split-screen, and I thought RE5 and Gears of War used the split screen a lot better) Well, and World of Warcraft, but I don't want to play another MMO.

I do love Super Mario Bros. Wii but I prefer it with more than 2 players, same w/ Rock Band :)

All of my not knowing what video game to play because I don't feel like playing any of them might be over.

Syribo reminded me that freaking Ace Attorney INVESTIGATIONS is out. Also known as CSI: Miles Edgeworth. (At least, in my head.)

I can't wait!! I hope I can pick it up tonight :D

Shadow Complex was awesome! I just beat it now... well worth the $15 off XBOX Live if you are also slightly behind the times with video games like I am and haven't gotten it yet :) It is very much like Metroid and it isn't a very long game... also much like Metroid games.

I played it off and on for a little while, and after beating Mass Effect just went for it 100%. Well and by 100% apparently I mean 41% because that is how much of the item completion I got.

Anyway bottom line is that it is very fun. The only issue I had with it is the issue everyone has with it, which is that aiming into the background is really annoying sometimes (the game is 3D but you can only move on a 2D plane and sometimes you have to shoot at enemies in the background and aiming can be really crap).

Yesterday I went to Barnes and Noble and picked up a bunch of books :D

The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks on [livejournal.com profile] icklehoot's recommendation
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
World of Warcraft: Arthas by Christie Golden
Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella
Deadtown by Nancy Holzner
The Younger Gods by David Eddings (hardcover super discount for $6!)

Yes I read fluffy girly books by Sophie Kinsella. Don't judge me. It's Kendra's fault!! *cough* XD Well okay and I was going to read them anyway because I saw the movie and I thought it was cute.

Too bad I didn't know what the book for Feb was gonna be for book club before I went! I'll pick it up while I'm at work sometime.
ayashi: (Assassin's Creed)
Just beat Assassin's Creed II. It was awesome, and I'm glad I beat it before it went down to $20 in the preowned bin. XD

Now just to decide what I am going to play next. I have a giant video game backlog to work through!
