    Been playing the L4D 2 demo, bloody brilliant.
    Borderlands co-op is brilliant fun aswell (when it works - steam version!), the single player lets me down though, it gets a bit when every third or fourth mission is the same just slightly harder :D

    You must be one of the first!
    I must admit it does look good on the adverts.. Is the sp campaign very long?

    Id say its about the same length as in cod 4 (at least it took about the same amount of time for me) Around 6 and a half hours to complete.

    Sadly I'm amongst the 130,000 and climbing boycotting COD6 as theres no LAN option or Dedicated Server, as good as the game seems it's severely crippled multiplayer features don't appeal until the patch the missing options. I urge everyone even if they purchased it already to sign the digital petition, or the PC versions gonna be damned to console grade multiplayer.

    ...

    Me? Well, Mass effect 2 is very similar to Mass Effect but the face animation here is on higher level - when the characters talk there is a simulation of the motion of their facial muscies which makes the animation very realistic.

    in BioShock 2 you can see the Big Sisters, they are extremely quick and arguably more powerful than the BioShoc's Little Sisters.

    My gripe with Mass Effect 2 is that they have dumbed it down a little, also that you and your team all have weapons locked to classes which is annoying, it forces you to play weaker characters just because they have the guns or abilities you need for certain missions.....the originals shop n swap method was far better than this locked class method. Sorry but they have managed to brake most of the games best assets just to get it out around the same time as inferior console editions.

    Sure, the graphics are better (still get hideously block textures up close on certain objects and NPCs), but there's far more level loading for levels that are smaller than in the first game, even the souped up biotics seem less powerful than the stock abilities from ME1. And whats with the gay planet scanning for resources that cant be sold? so they just purely for upgrading stuff...yea that's far less realistic than the old game, I liked the space buggy driving around on planets looking for resources etc...and so far there's none to be had.

    It's still a great game, but despite promises of a better experience....i'm finding a lot of things are less interesting than the last one, everyone has to agree its gayness to limit basic weapons to certain classes, playing through as a Sentinel class means all i can use are gay pistols and a heavy weapons with terrible low ammo, i'd rather have auto rifles than the crap heavy guns, but i'd don't want to restart in a soldier class just for that. They should have designed the class choices based on weapon loadouts and abilities you pick during the game rather at the beginning cos i feel it doesnt give you a fair crack at seeing what works or not without having to start over.

    Umm feeling a bit ashamed now, a few hours further in and I've noticed buggy controls in the options and I've started unlocking weapon classes after helping my krogan crewmate....anyone for a slice of humble pie? guess I have to retract much of my ranting now
