I play with anyone, not just OSU. My buddy and I try to mix it up when we play. If I were to do a dynasty though I might start with OSU, or for more of a challenge Mizzou.

I'm loving AVP, graphics are ok. The marine campaign is something, for me it has the best elements of aliens (the marines with all the weapons and how they got their arses handed to them) with the best of the Alien (you're all alone hunting aliens).

I haven't felt that scared since watching the original alien.

Also Infestation is still a work of art but the pyramid is one amazing level.

I completed the Marine campaign today, quite enjoyed it, though it was a little obvious at times with the tricks they tried to play on you.

Just started the Predator campaign. Wow, they've really taken all the fun out of being the predator. Your shoulder cannon runs out of energy extremely quickly, meaning the pred is virtually reduced to a hand-to-hand killer only. That's really not how a Predator should operate against a company of marines. No spear, no disc as of yet.

All of the predator games tries to limit you in some way.

But the levels in my opinion are nicely spaced with recharge points lol.

The predator levels from the last two games were much better.

The last two predator games were what again.

ALso the shoulder cannon isn't the end all weapon. That why they have other weapons.

RLY, could you perhaps describe in sufficient detail how does God of War 3 look?
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

It looks slightly less orgasmatronic than it does on a 60" HD. :D

I want a new game for the 360. Since I finished Dragon Age (and felt so indifferent about the whole experience by the end) I've been playing Napoleon Total War on the PC, which i think is just amazing.

Any recommendations? I want something a bit less RPG for a change, more action/fun, more guns than swords. I was thinking about a GTA or something - I've not played any version of GTA since Vice City on the PS2 - are the newer one/s for the 360 worth a look? I used to like Vice City, is GTA4 more linear? I could google it all but it's better to ask opinions here first!

Also I haven't got MW2 yet, which looks like fun - is it the best of that genre?

So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.
