Catch Up part deux

Continuing my list of recent game I bought.

Saints Row 2 (Xbox 360)- Like GTA IV, but without all the pretentiousness.  SR2 follows up the events of the first game with your character waking up 5 years later.  The Saints are gone, new gangs have moved in and a corporation now owns the Row.  You begin your rise back up the underworld, taking on various jobs and missions.  The missions are fun and the side missions (called diversions) are inventive (like FUZZ in which you impersonate a cop for a Reality TV show) without being too heavy like GTAIV.  And no cousins calling every 15 minutes.

Little Big Planet(PS3)-  While it looks cute (and it is), LBP is a challenging game.  You go through different levels, unlocking new costumes, items and settings which you can use in your own created levels.  This is where this game shines.  The level creator is only limited by your imagination, patience and what you’ve have unlocked.  You can create rockets, car and creatures.  Then you can post it online and others can play it.

Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360)-  Gears 2 promises more action, shooting and using Chainsaw Bayonets ( guess the Geneva Convention does not apply).  Plays great, and your AI teammates can heal you.  To tell you the truth, though, I like played it for like two days then went back to Saint’s Row 2 and LBP.  Then I got this game

Fallout 3(PS3)  A post-apocalyptic RPG from the creators of Oblivion, your character was raised in Vault 101, a community in a nuclear fallout shelter.  Your dad has left the Vault and you have to do the same.  You traverse the nuclear ravaged Washington D.C. helping or hurts as you see fit and looking for you Dad.  The problem I have with the PS3 version is when the system tells you when someone logs in and out, the game freezes for a few seconds.  Annoying as hell.  And Bethesda has screwed over PS3 owners as there will be no DLC for this version.


Anyway, not much else has happened.  Took Chantale to a Function at my old Reserve unit.  We had a good time.  Bought tickets to the Canucks/Senators game in Vancouver in December.  Can’t wait for that.


Here as some Rock Band 2 pictures of my band, the Meeloo Experience.
