I finally got my consoles set up tonight after moving into our new place two weeks ago. I've been waiting for our TV to arrive from Wellington, the damn freight company sent it pretty much all over the country before it finally arrived here!
Here's what I've played so far:
demo on PS3. It was very pretty, yes, but I don't think I'll buy it. Being clusterfucked by mutant after mutant got a bit tiresome after a while.
- Saints Row 2
on Xbox 360. I picked this up for cheap a while ago but haven't had a chance to play it yet. I've spent a couple of hours on the game so far (a good portion of which was creating my character), and I really like it. It looks as rough as hell graphics wise, but it's got it where it counts. The gameplay is a hell of a lot of fun, and there's just something about it which leads you to want
to create havoc and murder everybody in sight. I've never experienced this while playing, for example, a GTA
game. It's refreshing to just act like a total asshole and not feel bad about it.
I've got tomorrow off work and will have the house to myself so I'm looking forward to getting some serious game time in.
