Resistance: Fall of Man (PS3)

It looks like I’m at the final level now. I think I’ll leave it until tomorrow. Partly because I want to extend the experience… but mainly because I kept dying.

Just done the most intense part of the game so far – the defense of Tower Bridge. That boss battle that took me ages at the weekend? Try three of them, lots of normal enemies… and then an even bigger boss.

Of course, now I have a rocket launcher at my disposable. It helps.

Did I mention that I love this game?

Into the final set of levels now, I think. It’s got quite hard, but not yet too hard.

No, look, I don’t understand. I honestly cannot understand why people don’t like this. It’s brilliant and it just keeps getting better and better. I don’t understand the reviews or the reaction from a lot of people online. I am loving it.

Ah, saving the world single-handled. That’s what video game characters do best.

I’m starting to use more weapons now, there seem to be more and more opportunities to get a bit creative. I even found a good place to luse the blobby mine gun, which is a first. And one section became a lot easier once I’d noticed there was a nice sniping position on the way in that I’d missed the first time.

I love this game. I know some people don’t, but then some people don’t like Doom 3. Maybe I’m a freak… but I’m a freak having fun, so I win.

GripShift (PS3)

Not the best game in the world, but an excellent-value download from the Playstation Store. Just a shiny and slightly fatter version of the PSP game, but that’s no bad thing. I fully completed all of the Beginner tracks this evening and had a good time.

Forumla 1 CE Demo (PS3)

This is actually really, really good with the driving aids off and damage on. Played it for quite a while this evening. Nearly finished a 10%-length race at one point, but hit a barrier on the penultimate lap and lost a wheel. Bit too hardcore for me, but if I had time and money that don’t exist I could see myself getting into this.
