Checkpoint: Non-HDTV Woes Edition


Consider this an addendum to yesterday’s post. I’d normally post a little personal gaming tidbits at the end of these sorts of posts, but I didn’t want to muddle the KDS-50A2000 Yellow Stain edition with stuff like this. So what have I been playing lately?

Well it’s been primarily Forza Motorsport 3 with some Uncharted 2 multiplayer on the side. Forza 3 is a pleasure to play and I’ll be elaborating why later this week with a little write up.

Uncharted 2 continues to get play time because of its co-op. My brother and I have been working our way through the co-op scenarios on the “Hard” difficulty and let me tell you, they’re tough. There are only three traditional co-op campaigns and we’ve only managed to finish one. The other co-op mode, Survival, is simply “Horde” mode, but it works out well with two people. “Gold Rush” requires falters and fumbles with only two players on the map and thus we leave it by the wayside.

I continue to play the competitive multiplayer primarily for the Objective playlist. Pick up games are hit or miss, but I’m always learning and entertained through this playlist.

With these two titles occupying my time, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time lies waiting. I’m hearing a lot of good things about it, but I can’t seem to find the time to play it. I’d also like to play it on a proper HDTV. I was considering even trying out the game on my brother’s screen. We’ll see.

I doubt I’ll be receiving my copy of Modern Warfare 2 on launch day so, I may be able to squeeze in a playthrough.
