I plan on revisiting Mass Effect 2 this week now that there are two DLC packs to play. Did anyone play the hovercraft one yet? How is it?

Fall Out Boy DLCs on GH--I love it. Can I get them without having GH5 (I only have World Tour)?

Anyone here tried Just Cause 2 yet? I played the demo last night and it was great. You have a grappling hook and can zing all over the place, you have seemingly infinite parachutes for base jumping and random parasailing, and I blew a bunch of stuff up and I stole a car and drove over a bunch of guys on motorbikes. I also got shot a lot but for some reason, my dude didn't mind. I think I might get this once it gets cheaper.

My son (15) has been playing this non-stop and LOVES it. I think part of the allure is the humongous area available for free-play (which he's really into), but the overall game looks fun and the graphics seem quite good.

They even have an island in the game that somewhat mimics the Lost island - kinda cool.

I rented Just Cause 2 last night and started it, and so far I am not happy with it.

The game is pretty difficult on normal mode (especially the riding on top of the car driven by Karl Blaine mission). It is not fun for me to have to shoot a guy 8 times with a Machine Gun to kill him. Along with that, there is not enough ammo in the early stages of the game.

I do like the grappling hook, but when I was travelling to another portion of the island where there were missions, the cars were too slow. When I did switch to the hook, it was fun but again took too long. Learning the controls to the airplanes (this is the very first racing mission) is/was infuriating.

I am whining to be sure, and the game is compelling enough that I tend to retry it a lot (instead of just giving up like in a game such as Ninja Gaiden Black), but ultimately I'm glad I only rented the game.
