Wanted something cheap to play over Thanksgiving break, so I picked up the $20 Uncharted/Uncharted 2 dual pack to see what I've been missing out on. I'm on chapter 3 of the first one. Sometimes I feel like I'm "playing" a movie, one of my least favorite qualities of modern gaming, but I'm extremely fond of the script, environments and platforming. The combat is OK, the sight seems a bit inconsistent, but it's easy enough to pick up and utilize weapons.

I have not played the campaign on Halo 4 yet, but I'm really digging the multiplayer and the episodes.

Yes, Sony owns Naughty Dog, the development team.

Agreed. I enjoyed the first one, but it's not even in the same ballpark as 2 and 3.

Tourista, the campaign is awesome. I'm really happy with it as well.

I'm 3/4 of the way through 3 and unless something epic happens I think 2 will remain my favourite.

The campaign is really great. The story is actually emotional and done very well. I always found it difficult to care about the story in past Halo games, since they were mainly a variation of "stop the Covenant/Flood." This time, the relationship between Chief and Cortana is a big focus point.

The gameplay, level design, weapons and enemies are well-done too.

Mel and anyone else with Skyrim on the PS3, let me know how it plays, I have been hearing conflicting reports on how it runs on the PS3 and I'm curious...

We rented it for a week when it first came out and Ashley racked up about 50 hours on it so she didn't want to start over on 360. The lag was always a problem back then; it's still a great game, but there is a reason why the PS3 version is 7 points lower on metacritic. There have been multiple patches offered since, so I'll spend some time with it and let you know. Frankly, Skyrim never should have been released when it originally was; Bethesda should have spent another 6 months cleaning it up and offered some unique DLC for it instead of putting Sony users through months of patches and no Dawnguard or Hearthfire. I'm glad I own it anyway.

Well this and mofo above make me excited to start campaign. Me and a small group of friends were ignoring it until we can all get together in person on a couple of system linked tvs and play through it all together on legendary the first time through.

Just been playing through the various Assassin's Creeds. The first one came across as pretty much a tech demo, gave up about two hours in as it was deathly boring. The second and so far Brotherhood are so much better, much more variety and Ezio is just a more charismatic and fun character than Altair.

Still the trailer for the first Assassin's Creed is probably still the best i've seen for a game.

After 3 months of no gaming, I am ready to fire up the XBox and the PS3. All I need are some new games. FIFA seems like a foregone conclusion for me after spending all that time in Europe.....but, what the hell else should I get? Recommendations are welcome.

What genres do you prefer? There have been quite a few decent releases lately.
