See, I have that one now, but I haven't played it yet. Isn't it more styled like Age of Empires or something?

It's been a while since I've played Age of Empires, but from what little I remember, yes. They're both RTS games, have a story-driven campaign (each level requires you to build a base, or bases, and complete a certain goal). The controls, however, are very much improved. It's sleeker, better designed - though that may just be because I played AoE on my old computer, and the graphics were terrible - and the cutscenes are absolutely beautiful.

Just wait until you see the cut scenes in halo wars!! It is like a mini movie. In fact there is one scene I believe after level 8 where some spartins fight off some elites that is the most bad @*% halo scene I have ever seen!

Just got Lord of the Rings: War in the North for Christmas. Not that far into it yet, but I'm enjoying it, and so far don't get why sOme people bashed it.

I beat Mass Effect 3. It was probably the most depressing video game I've ever played Crying or Very sad

I picked up Dishonored this past weekend. So fun!

To start the story, I was at Wal-Mart, and said to myself "If it comes to $50 after tax, I'll buy it" (I had a $50 bill from my wife's grandmother). I'm at Wal-Mart and it was $65!! So I didn't buy it.

But across the street was EB Games, so I went it there. They had a recycled copy for $55, and I have a discount card that makes recycled games 10$ off (which would put it below $50 pre-tax). I decided that was a fair compromise. So I take it to the cash and the guy is all "hey, you might get this cheaper." Turns out they had new copies on sale for $30!

I told them what Wal-Mart was selling it for and they were shocked.

And the game is fun! You play an imperial guard in a fictitious 1890s-ish island empire, who gets framed for murdering the empress and kidnapping her heir. So some rebels rescue you from prison and give you the tools to enact vengeance and free the empress's daughter. Those tools include magic. The main game mechanic is teleporting (jump behind a dude and kill from behind).

So I'm basically Nightcrawler. BAMF!

I'm playing Red Dead Redemption. I never did beat the game, so I'm going to give it another shot. It's nice that the graphics still hold up very well. However the sheer expansive nature of the game has reminded me why I didn't beat it in the first place. So far I've beat 3 missions and have spent the majority of my time lost in the wilderness hunting animals, shooting birds, and picking flowers. It's like Skyrim all over again but now I'm a cowboy Laughing

It is really easy to loose track of time while playing Red Dead, but you have to finish that game! It has one of the greatest endings ever written. A true classic ending that leaves you feeling like you actually did something with your time, not just mashed some buttons for 20 hours.

You're right 1337Jedi, that was one of the best game endings ever. Now to finish up and get all the outfits I missed.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - again.

Incidentally, if anyone else has the PC version of Caspian and has managed to unlock all of the bonus content (though I find that slim), I'd appreciate some help with that, as I've never been able to unlock everything despite playing the game multiple times.

Finally got my copy of Assassin's Creed 3. Will play it later.

Had a very rocky start to ACIII. First it was one problem of my own making, as when I came to Boston I couldn't find any viewpoint markers, used to clear up the map. Nor could I find a synchronisation button whenever I was at a likely spot. So, when I had some down time between missions, I meticulously ran up and down every single street, every courtyard, every hill, every clearing in Boston, so that I could have a clear map. Once that was done, I started my next mission ... which introduced viewpoints and synchronisation *facepalm*. Then I started to get some movement glitches. No matter what, I simply couldn't move forward. The game didn't like my moving my thumbstick up. Then it got worse, so that I could barely move at all - at least, not in the direction I wanted. I switched controllers, from wireless to wired, and that seemed to clear it up. Then came a few missions which required several actions which I had no idea how to perform (such as running assassination) and there were no clear instructions included in the menu. *Sigh* I think it's smooth sailing from now on. But the beginning was quite disappointing, because amid struggling with the controller and having no idea how to complete objectives, it seemed like it would be a great game. Now that it's pretty much working, it does indeed seem like a great game.
