Pinger• Resumed playing Crysis 2 (PS3) last week. Managed to finish it the following day, normal difficulty only. I think I was about halfway through the campaign when I stopped so things ended quickly. Currently on the second playthrough with the difficulty level ramped one notch higher. Tip #1: grabbing then crouching results in an instant kill. You also lose all suit energy so be warned. Tip #2: Two blocks of C4 are enough to kill Heavies when applied directly. Speaking of enemies, I hate Pingers. The wiki says they can be taken down with 4 blocks of C4. I hope it works.

• Tried to get back into Assassin’s Creed 2: Brotherhood after not playing it for months. Got into a fight by accident. Found out the hard way that I forgot how to defend myself. Won by shooting my opponent when I equipped the gun by accident. The first ten minutes of reacquainting myself with the game was full of fail. Currently gathering all feathers, treasure and other collectibles in the game.

Retribution• Currently on my 4th playthrough of Dawn of War II: Retribution. Finished the Space Marines and Eldar campaigns on Normal. Tyranid playthrough is on hold while I’m trying out the Chaos Marines.

• Finally figured out how to do a decent Magneto combo on Marvel VS Capcom 3. Unable to do it consistently. Damn fingers refuse to move correctly. I’d like to get to a point where I can do the combo without going through a warmup session in training mode first.

• Started playing Metal Gear Solid 4 the other day. Still undecided on how I want to shoot (3rd or 1st person). Probably too early to do so anyway. I’m still struggling with the controls a bit. The game looks fun though.

• Trying out Bulletstorm. And no, the bullet-style updates weren’t inspired by that game.
