Y helo der!

I just made my own backloggery today and I'm looking for new friends! :)
My profile can be found by following this very long link!

I just finished Assassin's Creed II last week. The achievement where you have to throw sand into the faces of four guards at the same time is INFURIATING! I did manage to get all the feathers (after backtracking for a good two hours without realizing you can go to the start menu and see exactly which city the feather you're missing is in, KILL ME NOW) and the moment after you return them all is very heartwarming.

I'm now playing Borderlands with my boyfriend after a big time hiatus. He actually went to the Gearbox headquarters to focus test it multiple times. I can pinpoint a handful of mechanics that are in that game because my boyfriend suggested them! He even got an offer for an internship, but was unable to take it because it conflicted with his school and work schedule. :'( Either way, Borderlands is a lot more fun now that I'm out of the Arid Badlands!

I'm about to start Mass Effect 2 here in a few days. I actually didn't enjoy the first one very much. I thought the story was pretty generic and the characters were incredibly bland. The combat could have used a lot more work too. I've heard way better things about the second one, though! I'm looking forward to popping that one into my 360. I love me some Tali.

I have a handful motherlode of games I must play this summer... Splinter Cell Conviction, Darksiders, Just Cause 2, etc. What games are you guys looking forward to finally being able to play? I'm actually getting a PS3 this summer (my boyfriend's BFF is giving us his old fatty one) and I wanna know what games I must play as soon I can get it.

That's about it, though! I don't wanna write a novel for my first post. :) Happy gaming!

I really need to go through my PS2 games myself. x_x I have a lot I've been meaning to play for years now, it's pretty sad! People need to stop releasing current generation games that I must play. They're distracting me from the true reason for the backloggery!

I've added you now and thanks again for the warm welcome. :)

Cool that you might be getting a PS3 later this year. I myself might be getting a 360 later, since I already have a PS3. Envy at you people who can play Mass Effect. I've wanted to play it ever since I saw it (and though I can get it for PC, hrrrrgh gamerscore NEEDED).

For games you "must" play on PS3... Depends on what genres you really like. Though, I think the general "killer apps" for the system are the Uncharted series (Drake's Fortune and Among Thieves), Valkyria Chronicles, Metal Gear Solid 4, and LittleBigPlanet (of which the GotY edition is now only $30 with a bunch of DLC pre-packaged).

There's probably a couple more I'm forgetting about, but those are the only major exclusives I can think of...

Oh yeah, and this is my page. ^^;;;

I FEEL YOU ABOUT THE GAMERSCORE THING. I have PC games that I'm all hesitate to play because they're on the 360 and I coooould be getting achievements. Mini Ninjas comes to mind first.

Thanks for the recommendations! Those are bascially all the games I was going to be getting from Gamefly (sans LBP and the Uncharted's), so I know I have decent taste for a PS3 newb at least! haha.

I've added you on Backloggery! Thanks for the warm welcome. :)

Welcome to the community.

I myself am a PS3 owner, so I can mirror Ashe and say that the main killer apps are the ones above. I highly recommend Valkyria Chronicles, as its a great game.

MGS4 is great too, but I would strongly suggest going through the other 3 games first before playing MGS4. Plus, theres Metal Gear Online too.

LBP is a fun game itself. Its very simple, but theres also the community levels that add to some replay value.

I haven't played Uncharted at all, but I LOVE Uncharted 2. It has online also so thats a huge replay value for it.

I can't think of any other must have games, but im sure others may think of some.

My boyfriend is a big MGS fan, so I'll probably just watch him play four and have him explain every little thing to me, haha. He's already told me some about the general storyline for the series since I've played any MGS game. Hopefully that'll keep me from being an annoying 5-year-old who just can't stop asking questions!

Do you have a Backloggery profile you can link me too? :) I'd love to have you on my friend's list for future recommendations.
