This. I've also got Skyrim and Uncharted 3 on pre-order. It just makes it easier. It means I don't have to remember release dates either because they call me when they get it and I just go in and grab it.

I got another copy of Soldier of Fortune recently so I could get the ranked multiplayer achievements and finally finish off the game. Thanks to a very shit matchmaking system it took longer than it should have but it all worked out and I have another completed game.

Homefront is terrible.

If you're not buying the game new you're also locked out of 90% of the multiplayer content unless you cough up 800 MSP for a "battle code" which allows you to get past level 5 in online rank progression.

Single player is a 3 hour affair on the hardest difficulty, generic hallway shooter with uninspired gameplay.

On the bright side, Crysis 2 will seem godlike in comparison.

Personally, I have nothing against that, but maybe it's because I bought it brand new, day one.

Capitalism! You can't be serious. I don't support the used game market and I never sell the games I purchase, but taking such a severe measure to discourage used game sales is at the very least a greedy "dick move." There is absolutely no reason to rent this game unless you've got money to waste.

But I digress, I suppose this may come off as harsh, but I'm just explaining how I feel. First of all, Homefront is a THQ game. That's all that really needs to be said for anybody truly knowledgeable of the medium to realize the game's going to be a FANTASTIC product.

But I admit, I love to shoot my way through braindead AI in hallways and/or abandoned warehouses filled to the brim with highly explosive containers, to sit through 15 minute scripted events otherwise waiting every couple minutes for my useless AI partner(s) to kick down the next door so I can continue plodding through to the next impossible obstacle such as a fucking latch on a chain link fence's gate.

Oh and while playing I also enjoy browsing TigerDirect.com©®%u2122 while eating White Castle©®%u2122 and Hooters©®%u2122 sipping on NOS Energy Drink©®%u2122. I'm sure I missed a whole lot of the others they threw in your face throughout the game; if it's not enough that you paid for the product, you're also being subjected to relentless advertising.

This game has no redeeming value and does absolutely nothing better than any other shooter it's blatantly imitating. If it weren't for the massive marketing campaign driving sales it would have been a flop, but that doesn't make a difference anyway, in a couple months the game will be all but abandoned.

PS: I wrote all of this sitting through the multiple interactive cutscenes explaining the gripping plot. I was so sad when hero action guy sacrificed himself to place the flare for the airstrike. I'm sure somewhere a bald eagle shed a tear.

After playing it again yesterday I want to get back into the Red Faction multiplayer and hopefully 1000 it. I'm also looking forward to the new Red Faction game but after all the shit with Homefront I'll definitely be waiting for the reviews and initial reaction.

Decided to buy neither Dragon Age 2 OR Homefront, because everyone says they are shit.

Got Stranglehold and Vanquish from LoveFilm. But NO XBOX till Monday, when I will be too busy with coursework to play them :(

Finished up The Darkness (have the multiplayer, roadkill and complete on hard achievements left) and got most of my Monday Night Combat achievements (I boosted some, I suck at this game, sue me).

I'm actually a bit sad about finishing The Darkness, the story was fucking A (dat ending ;_;) and it just made me want more. I think I might actually look into the comic series if shit is portrayed as awesome as it is in the game.

Anyway, got lots of GS out of it.

How focused are the achievements around multiplayer? I'm wondering how much Gamerscore I can get from it if I don't have LIVE.

Also, +25G from Rock Band 3, feels good to have my drums back.

Plus I started playing Dante's Inferno, and holyshit it's fun. Admittedly it's frustrating at parts but it's one of the most enjoyable games I've played in a while, think I might even go for the full 1000G if I keep my interests up and can be bothered, doesn't look too hard.

Gotten about 220G from it so far, hopefully have completed it before the weekend is over as I have nothing else to do.

Also, I forgot how good The Hurt Locker is.

About 200G is devoted to multiplayer.

Going to rent Homefront tomorrow if I can find it, which I doubt I will, so I'll probably end up with Bulletstorm.

Popped in Left 4 Dead to play with my friend. I have not purchased the Crash Course campaign, but this achievement popped up as soon as I pressed start on the main menu of the game.

20 Car Pile-up
As a Tank hit 20 survivors with a car in the Crash Course campaign.
20G

Thank you Valve.

After a week of getting well over 100G every day the last couple of days have been a bit slow. All I did achievement wise was beat the campaign on Magic The Gathering and get the final achievement I needed in Turok. I'm happy to finally finish Turok but I could really use some more Gs.

Epic Conclusion - 40G
All-Purpose Warrior - 30G

This sounds about right. Multiplayer is non-existant anyway, so even if you were to have LIVE it'd be a bitch to get those achievements.

But really though, this game is worth it's weight in gold even if you don't consider the Gamerscore you'll get out of it.

Before I called it a night yesterday, I started with Splinter Cell: Double Agent. Started on hard but quickly realized that it's too tough for me (hardly any ammo, etc) so I'll have to drop that achievement and just go for a Normal run.

27/50 - 587G from DJ Hero 2, the majority of the achievements left are either online, requiring 2 DJs and or a vocalist. So that's probably as far as I go in this game until I get XBL again

I'd help out but I don't think I'll be getting DJ Hero 2 for a while, and I don't have Xbox LIVE all the time either. If you haven't traded it in and have XBL by the time I get it I'll help out unless (most likely), you've done them already.

Anyway, just completed Dante's Inferno and I loved it, probably one of the best games I've rented so far, if I can I'll go through again and try to get all the collectable achievements which I missed and possibly try to max it out.

Soul Reaper - 50G
The Harrowing - 35G
Old Friend - 20G
Brotherhood - 40G
Superstition - 10G
Indigestion - 10G
Bitter Sweet - 50G
Lucifer's Match - 100G
Gates of Hell - 60G

I need 340G more to Max it, and that comes in 14 achievements, shouldn't be too difficult.
