I liked Tomb Raider so much that I also installed the PC version after finishing it twice on Xbox 360. TressFX looks good on Lara, even if it breaks immersion a bit.

Who says you can’t deal with the supernatural and look good at the same time?

I bought and installed StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm a couple of days after it was released. I haven’t touched it since. I played Darksiders and Darksiders II using a newly-acquired PC-compatible Xbox 360 Wireless Controller. Other than getting the benefit of having a controller for the PC, it will allow me to play the XBLA titles I have on the Xbox with another player.

Around the last half of April I also bought 3DS games: Fire Emblem: Awakening and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. I’m still playing the former, even going as far as purchasing a couple of DLC maps to make the overall experience smoother. I somewhat regretfully report that I do not have the patience to play it on Lunatic difficulty. I tried it and the multiple failures reminded me of some tower defense games wherein build orders are so strict that one misstep made me want to redo everything. I had no intention of experiencing that on Fire Emblem.
