I haven’t posted anything more related to the world cup and the amazing games played this week like United States versus Algeria, Slovakia versus Italy. Tomorrow is playing Brazil versus Portugal, Spain versus Chile among others, cant wait. Anyway I am not going to talk about “futbol” now, maybe I’ll do later. This post is related to gaming, the games I been playing, either online or offline, and any downloadable content I had purchase, demo’s or anything of that kind.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Onslaught) – This is my favourite online game currently, this is the one I play mostly with my friend. There have been issues since the last patch (around a month ago), the online  was lagging very badly, I could hardly play so I put it down the game for a while and started playing Modern Warfare to level up my prestige. Today I went to BC2 blog and there was an announcement that they found the problem related to the lagging on consoles and they are fixing the it, I played earlier and the game didn’t lag at all so good for DICE :D. Around two days ago EA and DICE released onslaught mode for Bad Company 2, the cost is 9.99 dollars but my friend bought it so he share it with me :P. I have to say Onslaught is amazing, the downloadable content consist of 4 maps in coop mode, with 4 difficulties, the maps are the same you play on competitive but with new environmental features like fog, night among others. The purpose is to beat the stage in the best time possible with your squad (4 players) and then the time is uploaded to the leaderboards so you can see your ranking position. That’s the only thing I didn’t like about Onslaught, the purpose it just to beat the stage in the best time possible, no experience gain, no levelling up. It is worth playing thou, it is very fun and addictive, I have to warn you that playing it in hardcore is not an easy task, you probably need to find a good squad or at least people with microphones because communication is a must. Something good about it also is that you can pick up the camo skins(if you bought them) and weapons you unlocked in competitive mode. The enemy AI helicopters are a pain to take down, almost impossible, you need to be careful or they will rape your entire team in seconds, same with tanks. I already finish the 4 maps on hardcore difficulty, was a lot of fun, I got all the trophies of Onslaught and I am close to platinum in battlefield, just need two more. Onslaught is worth every penny, I really recommend it, addictive and fun.

Medal of Honor – The BETA of medal of honor was available if you pre ordered the game. Many people complain about medal of honor graphics, well they aren’t the best that’s for sure and are probably worse than battlefield. The online gameplay is fine but the game kinda needs something. The beta was causing many PS3 to freeze every time you reached a killstreak with the terrorist, also when they kill your character you get some kinda lag but all of that is fixable, it is a beta. Something that i didnt like either was that i only see like 3 unlockable weapons, I like customization in games so this is a let down. I know this is a beta and they just put a few weapons and maps playable but I hope they add a lot more weapons because if there is something I like of MoH is how the weapons look. I am not sure if I will buy this game or not, well have to see which games arrive this fall, if they are better than MoH well I probably wont get it.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – Nothing new in Modern Warfare, I been playing it lately mostly because my friends play it, I don’t like playing online games alone so we make parties. The game is OK, don’t get me wrong but this call of duty was really mess up in many ways. I am tired of so many noob tubes, people with RPGs, the super knife + commando combo, people that you shoot and don’t die yet they kill you easily. The game is mess up but it still fun plus my friends play it so to have a good time with them I also go with them to play. I am currently on prestige 4, i hope at least to make it to 8 or 9, I don’t want to reach prestige 10 because mostly everyone reach it hacking so is not fun. Well I still play it sometimes, but I love Battlefield more.

Farcry 2 – Most of my friends told me this game sucked, so I borrow it from him. I gotta say while is not probably among the best games and I wont pay 60 dollars for it, it is very good. I am starting the game and i am in the first few missions but the game looks fun and OK to play.

Dante’s Inferno – I am playing this for the xbox 360, I borrow it from a friend also. The game is an exact copy of god of war but instead of Greek god’s they use the Christian one. It have a lot of nudity, blood and blasphemy so I suppose if your a strong Christian you wouldn’t want to play this. Things like killing unbaptized babies just wont do it for you. The game is very good and I am almost finishing it, I must do before my friend come to pick it up.

That’s what I been playing mostly, I need also to finish Assassins Creed 2 for 360 and get the achievements, Mass Effect 1 that even thou I finish it I need a lot more of achievements and finish it 100%. What you been playing this summer?
