360 ? Oh man... not to disappoint you but the version on PC is playable, 360 is a huge mess.
You should go read a guide early or else you'll probably find it impossible to finish the game (read about BR scaling)

A shame that The Last Remnant never appeared on PS3. SE still has listed the game as "TBA" on their website for some reason.

Deus Ex: HR is going to take me forever. I love exploring different paths in this.

A joy to level up here as well!

Did a ****ton of hunts and bazaar grinding in FF XII and got strong enough to survive in the Necrohol.  Now I have an Ultima Weapon, a Perseus Bow, a Fomalhault, the Zodiac Spear, and some armor that's better than everything sold in shops.  Off to Giruvegan.

Finished L.A. Noire and I must say that was simply an awesome game, graphics were awesome, gameplay solid and the ambiance was incredible! Now...hmmm... now what...time to give FFXIII another go or kill some zombies in Dead Island? I have a feeling one of the two will prevail but I may surprise myself and do something else altogether.

It's a pretty atmospheric night so it's been excellent for some Fatal Frame 2. However, I'm surprised how tame it is, especially compared to the first one. Could be that it has a more colourful colour palette, presence of a secondary character as well as less random ghosts (at least so far). Currently up to Chapter 4 I think. I do like it though, it's a beautifully told folk horror at it's best and I'm a sucker for those, especially when they involve Shinto-Buddhist rituals and whatnot in backwater Japan :).

Also pushed forward with God of War. It's my first time and I'm playing it on Hard, so there's been plenty of game over screens. Currently at the cliffs seeking that Pandora's Box. I like how they've captured the tone of the era, or shall I say the tone of the era as has been recorded in various classic plays. Playing on Hard makes it less button-smashy as well in my opinion, however, more often then not I'm only using a few moves since going for a long combo with majority of enemies can lead to a bloody end for Kratos.

Fuck Worms Reloaded.  What a unmitigated piece of shit.  Nerf fun game mechanics from previous games into the fucking ground so badly that it's not even fun.  It's not a wonder at all that people are still playing Worms 2 which was released in 1997.  Better UI and far better gameplay.  The only fun to be had in Worms Reloaded is multiplayer (maaaybe) or playing against yourself on custom Fort / B&G maps because if you play against the AI they will just summon the combined powers of Magic Johnson, Michael Jordon, Wilt Chamberlain, and the entire fucking Harlem Globetrotters to somehow ping a grenade off 5 objects and land perfectly beside you.

I'm still kicking myself for selling Worms Armageddon on PSX.

Endless amount of fun had on that in the dorms.

the opening sequence and 1st battle is a real mess, after installing on the HDD it's actually playing quite well. I've had a little over 4 hours and no major problems yet. I hear what you're saying though, the general reviews haven't been so kind and the framerate can get tedious. All I have to say about last remnant is you really need focus on the initial training if you play it on the 360, and install this sucker on your hdd

Kingdom Hearts 3D

+ Battle system
+ Graphics (extra points for 3D just being cool)
+ Music
+ Card Flick game
+ Tons of mechanics
+ Surprisingly monsters

- Dropping (really?  If you get caught in a boss battle, it resets the boss battle; worse is you fight them same boss between Sora and Riku)
- The time limit associated with Dropping
- Camera sucks dick, made worse when you're zipping around with flow motion
- Story of course.  Nonsense jibberish.

...I've become waay more handheld oriented these days than actual console gaming. I now know how PC gamers feel?

You have to act like an asshole everyday on forums and give technical reason why you hate console games for that.

Super Monday Night Combat. Its a MOBA and a third person shooter rolled into one.
Also worth mentioning that its free to play (you can download it through Steam) without the common "pay to win" bs.
