Just Cuz

The award for the most out of this world crazy, over-the-top game I've played in a while goes to Just Cause 2.




Look how fun that is! I love the aircraft, and I love how absolutely enormous the game's environment is. I've run around for a couple of hours and have probably seen about 5%-10% of the landmass, and that includes flying over it in planes and helicopters!

There's also a really cool contrast between creating tons of chaos in the form of towering explosions and then jumping off a cliff and peacefully para-sailing just wherever your whims take you. Missions pop up all over the place and can be done in any order. The game actually encourages you to run around and do whatever by doling out rewards and unlocking story missions based on how many side things you do (mostly destroying government infrastructure). It's great to jump into and mess around with such a huge and good looking open world.

Dude, my condolences on the demise of your PS3. That sucks. You got screwed by both Xbox and PS3 within 6 months or so of each other.

And I sent my Wii in for repairs last year, too!

At this point I don't even know what's wrong with the PS3. I thought it was just the BR drive, but tonight I had it lock up playing NFS, then again quitting out of the Uncharted 3 beta, then again in the middle of a game of Battlefield 1943.

There's an option for revert back to factory settings, right? Maybe I should try that or something. I got the free PS+ membership, so I can upload important saves beforehand.

Congratulations Dale! I don't do twitter so I'm taking the old tech route of making a post.

Thanks!

I came back to the house to snatch a few hours of sleep on a real bed so I can be of some use helping out with the baby tomorrow. Luckily this also affords me the opportunity to snatch some of today's Steam sale deals!

Why don't you hop on twitter? It's pretty entertaining.
