Checkpoint: Super Bowl XLIV Edition


It’s Super Bowl Sunday 2010. This is the first NFL season which I’ve paid significant attention to, but it’s still superficial compared to the dedicated fans out there. Nevertheless, I do have a preference and want the Indianapolis Colts to achieve victory.

Yes, I’m going to against the impressive Madden NFL prediction.

But enough about football, let’s talk about games. I wrapped up Mass Effect 2 yesterday and I’m currently writing a review on it. (Hint: I loved it.) Everyone should play this game. I’d even recommend playing the original and importing your character into the sequel.

I also spent a fair bit of time with the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PS3 multiplayer demo. I would have written a dedicated preview on it, but really couldn’t muster the effort to go deep into it. It’s a fine Battlefield game for consoles and one I’m sure I’d enjoy if it wasn’t coming out in March. That month is the new November with its flood of games.

My only gripe with the game itself, however, are the idiots who insist on staying perched on top of their hills sniping and disregarding the objective. There really should be a way to limit the number of snipers. Oh, and a way to mute players. That would be swell as well.

I also tried the Heavy Rain demo. It was as expected as I commented here.

As for what’s next on my plate, it will be BioShock again for the Xbox 360 and then off to the sequel on the PlayStation 3 shortly after. I don’t know what to think of BioShock 2. The only reason why I’m getting it on launch day in the first place is because of the GameStop trade-in deal.

I’ve also been messing around with StarShip Defense on DSiWare and will probably get back into PixelJunk Shooter when I can.

That’s all for now. Time to find some eats.
