I played it twice, saved the evil play through for the 2nd time. It is by far the best play through for me, better powers and more fun, plus it's worth seeing how it pans out in both play throughs.

I'm only playing it the once...so I chose to be evil as it's always the more fun playthrough!

That means you're going to miss out on the great ending, won't ruin it for you in case you change your mind.

Ive been playing some of these mobile Xbox live games on my windows phone and some are pretty good. They're typical mobile games tbh but hey they have achievements!

Flowers and wordament keep me busy when I'm supposed to be working though and are ok considering how crappy my phone is...

There were 11000 gun related homicides in America in 2008, Japan had 6 gun related deaths in the same year. Does anyone know if they play videogames in Japan?

Reckon I'll try and get a windows phone on my next upgrade cos apple can kiss my massive arse. If there was one company in the history of the world I could destroy it would be them. Massive c**ts.

@Slick - I thought Limbo was alright too. Pretty good that game, but a little overrated. Many people say the same about Braid, I reckon that game was waaaay better.

Civ 5. Got it for myself and the lady in the steam sales, possibly a bad move but hey ho, I had too much time on my hands anyways.

I liked Limbo. Found dying was really quite a shock in it. Liked Braid too but it was a little pretentious. Some of the time bending puzzles were great though, real noodle scratchers.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Finally got round to starting NFS:HP, I'm thinking I should have gotten Most Wanted instead.

Started the story mode on Mortal Kombat. It's not bad for a fighting game story, it's easily better than the second film and tele series. But then again so is being hungry and finding out you've only got something in that your woman 'cooked' earlier, so it's not really saying much.

The best part is how every conversation ends up in a fight to the death and there's boobs bouncing everywhere.

I asked her to put a top on and stop shouting while I play the game but she won't f**king listen.

Started The lost & the damned earlier. It's hasn't aged well in a lot of areas but its still got that R* magic - cant put it down regardless of what now feel like clumsy controls and player movement that feels like it should be in flight simulator more than a sandbox title.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, man am I glad I don't have epilepsy! The battles can get pretty hectic and with the lock-on changing after every defeated enemy the camera sweeps around like it's off it's tree on drugs! Class game, and unless Konami give it to Platinum to f**k up :P , ZOE3 has just become my third most looked forward to game!

You do not agree with my quest. I understand that, so much as it is possible to understand someone with whom I disagree so completely.

I found TLaD really hard to play. I love GTAIV and TBoGT, I got the DLC the day it came out and only finished TLaD earlier this year . Johnny feels really clunky to control (even by GTA's standards!) and I got f**ked off with the bikes all the time, and pretty much all the characters did my head in!

Here's my 'review from May 2012! I stand by it - just wait until you get to Gay Tony, it's a cracker!

Finished The Lost and Damned last night. To be honest it's taken me nearly nearly 40 months to complete it, so I can't even remember the bulk of it, but that it's taken me 40 months to finish probably says all you need to know.

Emphasis on bikes is annoying as they're not that fun to drive, especially the big Harleys, Johnny is clunky and heavy/slow to control (I'm guessing on purpose due to his leathers, boots etc), Johnny is annoying, as are most of the people I remember from the game and although I can't remember exactly what went on before hand, the ending seemed abrupt, with your junkie ex gf just getting on my tits.

If you like GTA (or at least liked IV) it's definitely worth a shot, although I'd say get the disc version and then at least you can flog it. I remember downloading it the morning it was released, being super excited and was met by this clunky t**t of a character and being disappointed - so for 1600MSP, it was good value in terms of content, but just not that good.
