I'm continuing to squeeze as much out of Borderlands 2 as humanly possible whilst looking longingly into the future and the prospect of the fourth DLC.

I also started on Resident QTE 6 this week as well. Well, that's as far as I got after getting fed up of the QTEs. Installed Skyrim from scratch instead for something to get my teeth into again, but keep getting distracted every 10 minutes by...
Life Is Crime! I now have over 600 friends, 150 enemies, 300 locations, plenty of ongoing missions and a spreadsheet so detailed and full of intelligence that I'd probably get a fair price for it if I sold it to Mossad. #notobsessed.

Done and played loads this week.
Played about 1/3 of Uncharted Golden Abyss on the PSVITA and tried out Gravity Rush very breifly, like the look of both of them so far as well.
Also played a bit of Driver: San Francisco on the PC which I also been enjoying.
Also finished Playstation All Stars Battle Royale which is a good guily pleasure of a game, just need to clean up on it at some point and Dead Space 3 which is the best of the series easilly.

Finished Paper Mario SS, and now I'm moving onto finishing NSMBU, which is the best game in the "New". I'm also continuing through AC3, which I'm having fun with, and I've just started Rayman origins.
As for resident evil 6, Leon's campaign is probably the best one of the 4 game. The Problem, mainly arises when you play the next two of the other, (Jake and Chris) which are horrible. Ada's is also okay, but mainly because it fixes a few of the plot holes from Jake and and Chris campaigns. RE6 would of been a more consistent and therefore better package, if it was literally just Leon and Ada's story lines with the other two cut out.

This week I've also started Driver: San Francisco again. That game does so many things right. The handling is fantastic. Few car games manage to make a handbrake work as well as this game does. It just feel so good hurtling down towards a junction, holding the handbrake button for a few seconds, drifting sideways between traffic, counter steering and slamming the accelerator button back on to scream back into top speed. To make things even better this whole manoeuvre is accompanied by some huge, funky beats blasting through the speakers.
Then, there's the brilliant concept of shifting. Not only is it an incredibly fancy way of changing vehicle whenever you feel like it, but it allows for some story and backbone to be incorporated into all the driving. The game becomes so much more fun and immersive when landing in a car and finding yourself greeted with a conversation between the passengers.
Lastly, the roads are BIG and the traffic is dense. It all comes together to be one of the best driving games of the generation. Shame it's all a bit yellow. But I presume that was done to push the 70's feeling.
I've also spent a few hours with InFAMOUS again. I got pretty excited seeing the InFAMOUS 3 tease during the PS4 incident and decided to give it another go. Great soundtrack, vibe, graphics and gameplay. Bit too same-y, but a fun romp.

Just carrying on with Dead Space 3 (and just had the regenning unkillable buggers thrown at me... I do hope they don't feature too often...) and Crysis 2, which is so stunningly beautiful, but... I don't quite know what the hell is going on!
Also ventured back into Spelunky, after seeing the new DLC characters and multiplayer levels...
Other than that, this past week was filled with prepping for a very good sounding job interview, which turned out to be a proper shambles/waste of time. Although it did allow me LOTS of travel time to play 10,000,000, after Matt's Indie Face review. A very addicting game on the iPad, and welcome relief.

Been playing Gravity Rush, SWTOR and PSASBR this week.
SWTOR side of things I got my 7th Level 50 character. A Jedi Sage healer! Just one more character to do and I have done all the main storylines... And good timing too as the Expansion is fast aproaching with a higher level cap and new abilities...
Gravity Rush I got via Playstation Plus (Given a free year from Clarence last year from an E3 comp) and I have to say I love it! Artwork is superb and the music is awesome! Gameplay wise it takes a good while to get used too but one you master them you can explore the city no problem. I've spent more time gathering the crystals than playing missions and challenges...
PSASBR came this week (Thanks again chaps!) Downloaded the Vita version too and I like it. Managed to nab the two free DLC characters from the PS Store too. Been playing as Kat (from Gravity Rush) most with Raiden a close second!

This week I've been playing XCom which I'm not as addicted to as I thought I would be and I'm not sure whether that's a good or bad thing...
The difficulty spikes very quickly without warning. I did finish it, however, and it's weird how relieved you are after your 60% to hit shot actually connects.
Halo 4 came today for £11.50 with Kinect Adventures (courtesy of Blockbuster) and I'm enjoying it thus far. The multiplayer's really good and the game sounds excellent.
Also been playing some Starcraft 2 multiplayer which I'm enjoying although now that Halo's arrived I'm not playing it as much.

I too have been playing CRYSIS 3.....oh dear..what happened,CRYSIS 2 was a good shooter,a lengthy single player and excellant multiplayer(when the servers where working properley)
This time the single player has you chasing after that dude out of hollyoaks,you know the stereotypical brit,so lazy.
I didnt worry too much because multiplayer would make up for it....how wrong i was,why have they ruined it with HUGE maps and some of the most overpowered weapons ive seen in a mp game.
Crysis 2 mp succeeded because the maps were tight and the overall game felt fair,but this time it seems like they threw out the baby with the bath water.
I shall continue after BLACK OPS 2 double xp weekend and hopefully the game will improve.
