Still waiting for the PSN to come back up and get my Killzone 3 multiplayer fix!
Most of last week was spent on a second play through of Dead Space 2, such a different game with upgraded weapons and suit. The necromorphs don't stand a chance this time!!

Finished off TBoGT apart from the Drug Wars side missions of which I think I have about 13 remaining. Very samey though...
Played a whole heap of Dirt 2 as well. Again.

Test Drive Unlimited all week, mainly poker, and managed to win the Poker Tournament twice despite having to start from scratch a few times due to random disconnections whilst playing at a table and two server maintenances which cost me 25,000 casino credits each time. Not funny.
Mafia II is currently getting a workout by Daughter Number One who loves it to bits so far, and we've just come back from a shopping trip where I'd hoped to pick up a copy of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness for the PS2 to add to my 'epic games for when I get a couple of months free pile', but no luck.
Shift Unleashed got a couple of hours on the 360 last night, where I managed to obliterate most of Wido's Autolog times on the tracks I tried. I don't find the driving as immersive as Forza 3's, nor do I get the same sense of progression as Shift tends to start you off in high end cars straight away rather than making you work up from stock, so you're fast from the word go.
If Forza had Shift's front end 'fun' menu system, silly intros and autolog, or Shift had Forza's simulation handling and crispy graphics, it'd be a marriage made in heaven.

Literally i've only played just cause 2, mainly because i'm limited with time and i can usually just pause it when i'm doing work and then on the break, just piss about. But because i pause and forget, i've racked up 11 hours or so on it :P

Metal Gear Solid 4 - My 8th time through, 3rd on the Boss Extreme, I think. MGS4 is the only one that has properly great gameplay, but forcing a vehicle section at the end of Acts 2-4 (my favourite ones) really screws the game up for me. They're not enjoyable, and shouldn't be in Metal Gear Solid games as far as I'm concerned. I'll play through it again soon, but on an easier setting so I can just focus on emblems and collecting stuff.
Bulletstorm - Really enjoyed this. The dialogue is great, and genuinely funny a lot of the time. Sure it's stupid, but that's fine because it's not being serious at all, ever. The core mechanics make it really enjoyable to just play, but I get the impression that higher difficulties would be brutally difficult.
Also played Splinter Cell 3D, which is atrociously bad thanks to the controls.

Civ V - Played about 45 hours worth in 2/3 weeks, it's a good game. just overly time consuming. One game took me 22 hours. Good game, but it's getting a little... same-y now.
Left 4 Dead 2 - Good game to play with others, fun as always
Portal 2 - Not played much of it this week. Still need to finish co op, great game though.
Gears 3 beta - Brilliant, might finally get me to play on the Xbox more.

OF Red River - Got stuck on level 4 or 5, don't think I can be assed putting in any effort to get past it. My patience has finally worn out with this game. Patch please.
Portal 2 - I'm near the end of chapter 7 and it is a fantastic game.
