Currently playing (Week of 09/06/2010)

 I'm just a few days away from starting college again, so I'm trying to squeeze my free time as much as possible right now. 

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (Wii) 

 I'm loving this game so far. It's much, much better than Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. I'm actually having fun this time. I love how the finally merged all the upgrades into one weapon (or rather, three basic weapons that get upgrades). Having to switch between three or four different weapons to open doors or kill some enemies was a terrible drag in the first two. Also, not losing the most useful upgrades at the start of the game is a huge plus. Double jumping around makes everything so much easier :) 

Dragon Age: Origins (+DLC) (PC) 

I love this game. It's by far one of my favorite games from the last decade. I'm currently in my fourth playthrough, trying to choose the plot branches that I haven't chosen yet, to unlock the few Achievements I haven't got yet. I'm playing with a DW Warrior, tanking Shale, Leliana as an archer and Morrigan as a mixed healer/damage dealer. 

Mass Effect (PC) 

It's not that I don't like this game, but I'm having a hard time adjusting to it. I find it too... cumbersome, I dunno. Still, I've only spent 2 or 3 hours in it, so I still have a lot do :P My Shepard's a male soldier with the default appearance, and I'm probably going to take Kaidan and Garrus, although a friend told me Wrex was a good tank for my setup...  

Burnout Paradise (PC) 

I like doing a couple races and stunt runs once in a while. Great, fun game. Too bad the PC version doesn't have the ability to use a custom soundtrack like the console version... 
Too bad I'll be buried in work in a couple weeks, because I'm dying to play Dead Rising 2 and Fallout: New Vegas :)
