Just finished up Mass Effect for the 1st time. I bought Mass Effect 2 for 9.99 on Black Friday and blazed through that and loved it. I figured I should get around to importing my Shepard from the 1st game and beat the 2nd over again in time for the 3rd.
After playing the 2nd game 1st and then playing Mass Effect after, the combat was so terrible. Good thing I loved the story and the decisions you get to make so it was still an 8/10 experience for me. I'll probably take my 2nd playthrough ME2 slowly now but It will be cool to see my decisions in action.
On a hunch, I decided to pop Ninja Gaiden Black into my 360, and what a surprise it worked :) Started a new session last week, and now Leading into the final chapter. This inspired me to snag up Ninja Gaiden 2 on the cheap (10 Bucks? why not).
These are actually 2 different styles of games, something I knew ahead of time. Where Ninja Gaiden Black is an Action Adventure Game with exploration and RPG elements, Ninja Gaiden 2 is more a traditional style action game with straight level layouts. If the Classic game Strider was in 3D, it would be Ninja Gaiden 2.
Anyway, beat NG2 tonight and I will say it was a decent ride. Not quite up to the Original's Standards, but still fun with homage paid to certain levels and enemies from the first game.
Just finished Dragon Age: Origins for the 2nd time just in time for Dragon Age 2. This time I went with Lelaina over Morrigan. And I was a Mage instead of a Rogue. Just as fun the 2nd time around. I'll have to try it again eventually as a tank or a 2 handed warrior.
I just completed Uncharted 2 for the first time after playing the first Uncharted right before. That was an awesome. One of the best I've played. Finished just in time to start up Dragon Age 2 shortly.
