Megakrang's Ultimate Gaming Adventure! (Disclaimer: May not live up to title)

It's been a while. My plan to post at least once a week has, as usual, flown out the window. I always start off well but then get distracted and lazy and start slipping.

Since my last update, which if memory serves me was the "10 Things about blah blah blah" post, I have been busy with various odds and sods. I'm in rehearsals for a play, which I'm excited about. I haven't acted on stage since the end of 2007, so the prospect of treading the boards again has me all a-tingle. We open in one month and rehearsals are going well so far.

Other than this I have had the usual mix of work/exercise/wife time etc. Of course, amongst all of this I have worked some good gaming sessions in. My favourite gaming moment from the last month or so was powering through co-op with a friend on Killzone 3. My best mate came to stay with us for a few days so I hired the game out, and we managed to finish it off before he had to leave. It was a lot of fun. I honestly haven't played a lot of co-op and it made me hungry for more.

I've also almost finished F.E.A.R 3 (or F3AR if you insist). I bought this game last Monday along with Enslaved and Dead Space 2 as part of a pre-owned "buy 2 get 1 free" deal at my local EB Games. I'm enjoying the game quite a lot. It starts off a bit average, but it ramps up the intensity and action after the first couple of levels. I've played the first two games in the series, and I'm definitely enjoying this one more than the second. The first game is still the best, however. In fact, I rank it amongst my favourite first person shooters. This third installment has a different vibe than the other games, though. It's not in the least bit scary, for one thing. The first F.E.A.R holds the distinct honour of being the only game to cause me to have a nightmare. I had been playing the game into the early hours of the morning, lights turned off and with my headphones on so this definitely had something to do with it. In any case, I remember Alma coming for me in my dream and I woke up screaming. Good times!

After I finish F.E.A.R 3 off I think I'll move on to Warhammer: Space Marine, which I bought for $20 used from a video store. I played the demo of this a while ago and really enjoyed it! It seems like a whole heap of loud, dumb fun.

On the PC side of things I just bought Alan Wake on Steam, finally. I have a bit of a history with this game, I guess. Being a huge Max Payne fan, I remember reading updates about this game on Remedy's website years back when it was still in development. Even as the release kept getting pushed back and back I still loyally maintained my interest in the game. That is, until Remedy announced that the game was now going to be an Xbox 360 exclusive. I was really fucked off. The only gaming machines I owned at the time were my PC and my PS2. I immediately thought "fuck this game" and lost interest, even when I eventually got a 360 I still didn't buy the game. The eventual release on PC did catch my attention, though, and I just couldn't resist when the game was half price on Steam earlier this week. I've played a couple of hours of it so far and it's pretty fucking good. It looks incredible on the PC, for one thing, so I'm kind of glad that I waited.

That's about it. I'll try and get back to weekly updating again. I know that none of you out there give a shit, but I want to do it for me. It does me good to just write something now and again, it gets the ol' brain working.
