Still more Superpower on my computer. Recently took over Romania as Ukraine.

MW3, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and Halo Reach on my Xbox. Haven't gotten ACIII, BOII, or Halo 4 yet.

I've heard nothing but good things about Halo 4-sounds like it's pretty far outside the normal Halo box, with lots of improvements.

Got back into some Skyrim. Started a new horse archer character, since you can now use bows and other weapons on horseback.

The campaign game was short (about 8 hours), but I really enjoyed it. It introduces a few new weapons and a new vehicle. The Spartan Ops is a multi player co op campaign that I'm enjoying. You have a team of four in a linear story line, which takes place after the Master Chief campaign.

The multi player war games is not quite for me though as I always seem to get thrown in with ringers who play all the time and I don't like the interface so I end up just being fodder the whole game.

Hmm, sounds good for the most part though. Do they still have firefight and Grifball? That's pretty much all I ever do on Reach besides forge. I don't play nearly enough to get the hang of Slayer or anything like that. Plus, Slayer and such just frustrates me because of the shields. Although I just get killed instantly when playing SWAT lol.

I got started on not one, not two, but five new play throughs on Skyrim with different character types to try and pick a new fun way of doing it. I didn't even consider horse archer! that may bump me up to six. I got the PC version now so playing with the mods is quite fun, I got some knightly armour, but no character hight enough to smith it apart from a barbarian with an axe who wouldn't wear knightly armour. Typical

Yes, they also have added dominion and flood, which I like. You start as a spartan or flood and try to convert the whole gang.

Oh, I tried SWAT and it was like when I tried learning badminton in a class of Malaysians who were born with a racket in their hand. I spent most of my time walking over to the shuttlecock to pick it up after I got spiked. In SWAT I couldn't even find the enemy much less shoot at anyone. I'm doing pretty well with the Spartan Ops, co op games though. I'm a lot more methodical than the team though, who usually just rushes at the bad guys and jet packs around.

I downloaded Dragonborn and my game bugged out. I couldn't pick up any items for a while. I played a Nord archer my first go around and now I'm a high elf fighting mage. I like being against the grain so I wear my ebony armor in the Mage's Guild and my archmage getup in Jorvasskr. I even have an enchanted chef's dress and poufy hat and wipe out bandit hordes with that.

Lol that's also how I feel whenever I've tried Slayer and stuff. That's why I stick to Firefight and Grifball.

Lol nice choice of clothing. For Anya, my thief/assassin, I have some Forsworn armor and tavern clothes

Been playing for over a week and so far so good.

I wish they would offer mods in DLC form, for consoles! Think of all the extra money they could get. Of course, I suppose it's more a matter of being able to transfer something like a "must eat and drink" type mod from the computer to the console. But still, look at Hearthfire-it's basically a mod for console, in DLC form.
