I've just bought Little Big Planet 2. It should keep Niel amused while I'm away this weekend.

I loved it, there's some fantastic levels and the new gadgets and things they've introduced are great as well.
Once I've finished Dead Space 2 I'll go back and try my hand at creating something

Speaking of Dead Space: it's amazing and the Resident Evil series should really be taking notes

Dead Space 2 is very enjoyable so far (I'm up to Chapter 6 now)

Not quite up to the level of the first one though (so far), but it is quite an act to follow.

I'm not sure how I feel about the new talkative Isaac though.

On the Resident Evil subject, I'm expecting something of a "reboot" (approach rather than story) for RE6. We might see zombies again but who knows?

Shame the RE2 HD remake never got past the rumour stage, I would have liked to have seen that.

What did you prefer in the first over the sequel?

I like that he talks, I completely broke the immersion for me in the first when something fucked up was happening to him in a cut scene and he'd have his head in his hands with no shouting/crying or anything. It just made him a bit of a hollow character to try and care about.
His shouting obscenitys when you stomp makes me chuckle.

Zombies, pre-rendered backgrounds and "tank" controls. That's honestly what I want from a Resident Evil game.

They've got the tank controls down to a fine art.....

The thing is, they did actually work in those games. I never felt like the controls were hindering my experience in any way (apart from aiming sometimes, but they solved that with the semi-autotargeting).

Not being able to just instantly turn and shoot added more suspense to the game, and made chases down the tight corridors more intense. Without those pre-rendered backgrounds and weird controls, you're just left with a third-person shooter. And God knows the market doesn't need more of those.

Has anyone played DC Universe yet? I really want it to be as awesome as I imagine it could be, but I'm guessing it is currently beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil glitches.

Ooo spooky, I logged on just to post about that game. I played the PC beta before it came out and had a lot of fun considering I've never gotten into MMO games in the past. It's definitely more of a console style action adventure affair than the typical online rpgs and for me that's a big draw.
I didn't really have any issues whilst playing it in terms of glitches though from what I read they do exist. The only big issue I know of is the chat function being pretty unweildy though from my experience playing alone can be a lot of fun anyway.
If you fancy a look at it I'd suggest checking out the vids TotalBiscuit has made on Youtube. He does a nice job of talking through the opening of the game and generally showing off what it's all about.
I'm strongly considering buying it and playing for at least a month seeing as I have some holiday coming up and feel an increasing urge to create a badass acrobatic rifle weilding mystic demon spawn. In fact I'm going to buy it right now and get downloading. Hopefully by the end of the night I'll be swooping through Gotham terrorising the pitiful human scum.

Ugh, I couldn't have any other movement type except flight, the others are all too slow

Rebus, what MMO's have you played in the past? DCUO is probably the "lightest" MMO I've ever played, but it makes it a bit more fun and easy to play. There is no farming, crafting or Auction Houses yet. And the level cap is 30 which is apparently when the bigger harder "raids" unlock.

I really enjoyed it, but it is really dependent on whether they get a load of cool stuff to do at endgame. They've promised free monthly updates.

The combat is really fun, it's a lot less click and wait than other MMO's, you can do combos and special moves with your regular attacks as well as the usual cooldown dependent skills etc.

I'm sure you can download a digital version and get the free month subscription but I might be wrong.

Edit: Auction houses coming later this month

Apparently it's been delayed but I can't fund a confirmed article about it

It's much better than the first one, I thought. Great fun to mess around with

Haven't got the first one, I'm looking forward to having a go on it. I only bought it because I had an HMV voucher I wanted to use before they go bankrupt.

Was a WoW addict for a while but moved on to LOTRO for about a year, then just got tired of it all for exactly those reasons. The more I read about DC the more I like so I think I'll check it out this month.
