Yeah we were talking about that aliens game over at psxe last week lotta peeps decided against it. Im close to being done with dead space 3 and will resume with darksiders 2 soon after. Gonna probably be checking out crysis 3 also very soon. Although I havent co-op 'd yet on the ps3 my initial observations are the 360 is more user friendly on that end. As time and opportunity permits a deeper determination will be made.

And from what ive heard of that particular personna game its quite good. I myself dont have a vita, but know many who do... im enjoying Dead Space 3 atm!!!
Persona Golden Abyss is for the vita. That's that remake. Persona Arena is on the ps3 and xbox 360.

Ah I see. I have Persona 3 & 4, but I've yet to play them.

Don't be mistaken, though. Persona 4 Arena is a fighting game done by the same folks that did Guilty Gear. Persona 4 Golden (Golden Abyss...? I think Uncharted was in my head) is the remake of Persona 4 on the vita. Sorry for the mix-up.

Persona 4 is really, really good. It has to be the last great hurrah game the PS2 got. Games like that reminded me why I played so many JRPG's last console generation.

I did everything I needed to do in Aliens so I'm trading that in as soon as possible, such an awful game. At the moment I'm going through both Sniper Elite V2 and Fist of The North Star: Ken's Rage.

Sniper Elite is a lot of fun and is a definite play, more so if you do enjoy sniping in other shooters. It has realistic bullet drop and wind is a factor on the higher difficulties, it's not just aim at head at any distance and get a shot like standard shooters. An X-Ray cam (that is really, really gruesome at times depending on where you hit a guy) adds flair to the game and tons of "Oh man!" moments to the game. Shooting a guy and having the bullet travel through his chest, only to exit out his back while severing the spine never stops being the gruesome sight it is.

Ken's Rage is made by Koei, so it's pretty much Dynasty Warriors in terms of how it plays. I've always had a soft spot for the Warriors games, despite how repetitive and little they change. Games like this are good to play for a few mindless hours or to play concurrent with other games. I also do enjoy the Fist of The North Star series so it is pretty fun to roll through town making dudes explode while Kenshiro spouts the deadly serious dialogue that he always does.

I finally managed to pull myself away from Street Fighter X Tekken for a little bit to enjoy Mass Effect 1. I've played and beaten ME1 at least 3 times now. As much as a technical hiccup it is I still enjoy the game even though ME2 is clearly better. I just got Liara in the crew. Playing as female Shepard, and she's a soldier.

That said, I am back to playing SFxT though. Practicing some Jin combos.

Mass Effect is something I've been meaning to finish, but I've been "playing" the first one off/on for the last three years...:p

I'll always pick the sequels when they get cheap (got ME2 for $10 and ME3 for $15) but man, it seems so daunting to try and go back to it. I'd start over, but I think I'm too far into ME1 to even consider that.

Good to see you around, Dragon!!!! We have actually taken on the image of a semi-active forum again so be sure and re-visit soon! As for me, ive been absolutely loving Darksiders 2!!! Highly recommended, its one of my favs of this generation and the single player experience. Im highly anticipating the release of Bioshock Infinite and i started a thread over at Psxextreme to get the hype going!!! I had been renting mostly but am buying this game i dont plan on stopping playing it anytime soon!!! Hang out and lets keep this ball rolling!!!

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
I haven't gotten deep into the game yet, and I'm still getting used to the controls, but I'm enjoying this game. The better I get at this game the more hooked I become because the combat just feel so good. If there's a story I don't know about it because I haven't been paying attention to it. A lot of games these days are lacking in the fun department, and lacking the replay value that I look for. I feel MGR:R brought me out of my funk simply because of how fun and satisfying it is. I'm hearing it's a short game, but that gives me even more fuel to replay the game on a higher difficulty, especially since you actually unlock meaningful stuff for beating the game on higher difficulties (I'd much rather unlock costumes than pay for them)

I also took someone's advice and ordered DmC: Devil May Cry. I'm expecting it to arrive between today and tomorrow. I don't expect to have his reactions and claim it's the best in the series, but I do expect to have fun and feel satisfied. The combat looks like it'll have that satisfying feel to it, especially after a long day at work. I also hear that this game is fairly short, but again, that's giving me a reason to replay the game.

I'm also trading in a buttload of games (pretty much doing an overhaul in a way). I'm keeping the Metal Gears, Uncharteds, Mass Effects, Halos, Devil May Crys, Ninja Gaidens, and my fighters, but everything else is gone. Not exactly sure what I'll be getting in return.

I really need to start playing the Uncharted series, or at least Uncharted 2 and 3, but I can never get in the mood to actually play them.

In any case, I've started up DmC: Devil May Cry recently and it's not nearly as bad as fans make it out to be, but it's not as great as some review sites make it out to be either. To be honest, as big a DMC fan I am, my initial reaction when the game was first shown was definitely more on the negative side because of the look. The head guy at NT made Dante resemble himself, and that was a turnoff, but I got over that fairly quick when they changed him up. Anyway, the combat is nice, but they kinda dropped the ball without having a lock-on, and then to top it off you're forced to fight the enemies with a specific type of weapon, and while that's not a deal breaker for me, it does take away the freedom for playing the way you want. With that being said, though, it's still a good game.

With that being said I did put it aside to play Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Having a bit of a team crisis at the moment, but I am understanding the game a bit more. Originally I thought the game was super fast, but in the end you really have to take your time. And then the game is just pure fun. Some of the characters I've been dabbling with are Dante (he's just pure fun and my favorite character in the game), Wolverine, Vergil (did I mention how big a fan I am of DMC, but he is on the boring side though), Hawkeye, Spencer, Nova, Taskmaster, and Magneto. I'm also considering Strider as well.

Oh yeah, I also beat Metal Gear Rising: Revegeance as well. It's a good game with tons of replay value, but there are some things that could've been left out. Stealth in this game is just in the way. They have moments in the game where they tell you stealth is the best approach, but the game itself just encourages you to throw stealth out the window and go nuts. I don't recall you being graded on stealth either. It felt horribly tacked on. Speaking of tacked on, the sub weapons. I found no reason to use them what-so-friggin-ever. They really could've been used to include more blades to upgrade or something. But overall, it's a good game.

Some quick pickups.

Dragon Age 2
Infamous 1 & 2
Prototype 1 & 2

I'm also thinking about picking up the Bioshock series.
