What I'm Playing, October 7th 2011

Okay so things have been going very well for me over the last week and a half. Finished with getting my car back out on the road. I'm so happy to finally be driving it around again for the first time in over two freakishly long years. Seemed like it was never going to happen, but alas it finally did. With that now out of the way, here is what I'm playing.

Xbox 360: Gears of War 3, my friend and I got through Act 3 in the campaign and boy did it have a tremendous shocker that neither one of us saw coming. It's incredibly sad what happened, but it was executed very well. Kudos to Epic on how they handled that act. Overall it was short and seemed fairly achievement happy, but it also held a nice pace through most of the act. Came across a Lambent Berserker that even the Hammer of Dawn couldn't kill. So that fight was intense. I don't know how many times we died; might have only been a couple.

PSP: Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Tag Force 5, yes it's Yu-Gi-Oh. Deal with it. There isn't much to say about it other than what most people (who care) already know. It's a card game and it actually handles very well. Although I have run into a few instances that my partner is the stupidest character on earth and the occasional slow down. Seriously it could be turn 5 and my partner will sit there for about 1 minute or more and only lay one card down. There was one time I ended my turn, the opposing team went, ended their turn and it came back to us. Specifically it was my partner's turn and he drew his next card......I waited about 20 seconds and set the PSP down, he still hadn't done anything, I turned on the TV and watched a couple commercials (going back and forth between the PSP and the TV [wasn't really watching anything], got up to see what food we had, came back and my partner still hadn't done anything. So I went to the bathroom, came back and he finally had laid a single card down and the opponents were going. Ugh it was aggravating and all that time only for the card to be destroyed.
