Standardman, i've always been curious about those type of games, especially Rez.... But they look terribly addictive and distressing (in the wicked way tetris was when i was a kid, where addiction and sudden bursts of rage came out after every round)...

I'll have to give 'em a try, but i hold you responsible if i finally go insane...

They tend to dance on that line between zen gaming and control breaking rage but I take full and proud responsibly for any disorders gained from my recommending Qubed's games, especially Rez.

I'm not there yet, I keep wandering about and ignoring the missions. Do I get to back track later or should I pick up all the Riddles now?

I backtracked a few times, and explored ignoring the plot. There are sections where the story goes forward but generally you can roam freely through arkham.

The Scarecrow levels are a total mindfuck, without spoiling anything. They're not particularly hard, but jesus... You'll see.

It's just a pleasure to explore those levels, I've been making a metroid style map in my head of places I need to go back to.

Haha, I'll have to see.

When you played those, drop a line. I'm curious to hear your opinion.

Personally, I LOVED the Scarecrow levels! Especially when they sneak up and surprise you... o0o0o I'm already looking forward to them when I replay on the hardest setting. They were done so beautifully...

I'm done with the story, still need the last 25% of riddles. Also working on getting all the achievements for XBL

few ones I have in mind to work at:
  • Complete a combo of 40 moves
  • Glide continuously for over 100m (I swear Ive glided from the highest point of the island and STILL didnt get it >.<
  • Take on a beast in hand to hand combat (can someone explain this to me?)
  • Catch a Batarang (what? I didnt know they came back around O_O remote control one?)

I'm playing Modern Combat Sandstorm on my iPhone. Its pretty cool for a game on your phone, but I'm waiting for Bioshock to come out on a Mac. No console so no real immersive stuff in a while. I'm jonesin!

I finished Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 today, good, not great.
I'm still working on Arkham.
I played a bit of Halo ODST tonight, just the single player... I wasn't too impressed.
