What Have I Been Playing?
Here you will find all the games I have played since first purchasing my Xbox360 in December 2006, some of the most recent games will have my thoughts on them, my likes and dislikes, including some stats about how much of the game I actually completed and where applicable, what levels I reached online .
Assassin's Creed III was a game I bought for something different, I had never played any other games in the franchise. I have to say I was thoroughly impressed with the game play and graphics. There is a good story that takes a fair while to get through with lots of distracting side missions to keep you occupied. There are however quite a lot of cut scenes that take a bit of time away from the game play but over all definitely worthwhile getting
Create by 343 Industries the latest in the Halo (the first of a trilogy) saga is absolutely incredible. The graphics are stunning, the story line is different but very engaging and the on line experience is refreshing for someone who hasn't played Halo in nearly 4 years (since Halo 3).

Black Ops II To be honest I resisted getting this for quite some time, being rather bored of the franchise. There is no getting away from the fact that this game is great for multiplayer online mayhem if you want something to play that takes little or no thought. The single player game is pretty boring and not challenging at all but there are several on line games that are great including the combat training and Zombies. For me this game works for Clan playing, it's easy enough to play giving plenty of time for talking BS with your clan buddies.
I was a late comer to this game, having heard so many good things about it, I decided to give it a go nearly a year after it was released. I have to say I was not disappointed the story and many sub plots have kept me engaged for months, this is the first game I have ever gone back to having played another since I first purchased it.
I am still working my way through it and continue to play it when I have had enough of being pummelled on line at Halo 4 of BF3

Mass Effect 3
The last in the trilogy and THE game I have been waiting for in 2012. I would encourage anyone to play the previous two games before tackling this one, it's not necessary, but to really appreciate the story line, create your own story with the decisions you make from the first and second game to see how it impacts on the final battle. For me this is the best game of all the Xbox 360 games to be released so far. Check out my blog when I reached 100% achievements.

Star Wars Kinect
I couldn't wait for this game to be released and I was not disappointed when it arrived. Word of warning, you WILL be sore for days after playing this, it's a great game but once you are into some of the more intense levels you'll definitely be getting a bit of a sweat up. Check out a little blog I wrote about my initial experience.
