I just did this today and was in the same boat... draw him toward your side of the train, all the while taking nice shots with the sniper after the kryll leave him, then all you have to do is just make a rush for the troika at the end of the train, (avoiding darkness mind you) if you get the kryll away from him and blast him with the troika he will die in a matter of seconds.

I have been playing (all XBox 360):
GoW - 9/10 for fun gameplay
Rainbow Six: Vegas - also 9/10 but for the multiplayer *amazing*
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - 6/10 ... this game is boring IMO


I am waiting for: Assasin's Creed *DROOL*, Crysis *DROOL x2*, Halo 3, Prey 2... thats all for now..

Shadow of the Collossus (PS2): ***** 25% of the way to the end and 5/5!!! So majestic and artistic!! GET THIS GAME IF YOU HAVE A PS2!

Guild Wars: Nightfall (PC): **** Very good! Comparable to WoW IMO (for the price). Not as good as Prophecies, but still good.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror (PSP): **** Great game! One of the best PSP Games out there right now. Very enjoyable.

Have only been playing two games lately:

Battlefield 2: 8/10; even with all the commander hacks and plane campers, it's still a fun game. Especially if you can get into a good infantry squad.

NBA 2K7 (Xbox): 8/10; I've heard that this is the same game as NBA 2K6 with updated rosters, but I don't have 2K6, so it seems fine to me. 2K5 and even 2K3 to some extent are better games than this one IMO. Have never been a fan of the shot stick (but it's possible to still shoot with X, which is what I do). And I will also say that I've always liked the 2K basketball series over Live for one reason: the 2K camera angle.

Just finished Hotel Dusk (nds): 9.5/10 What a win for the adventure game genre. The writing is very good, the story is compelling and well presented. Probably one of the best adventure games I've read. Yeah, there's a lot of reading. The puzzles are probably the most logical of any adventure game I've played. I hardly had to consult any forums to get my way through. A must have for adventure game fans. Ironically, if this were the type of game with inane puzzles that I had to consult a walkthrough just about every step of the way, I would probably rate it a 10 because I would have expected the puzzles to be impossibly stupid - however, since I almost played the whole game without having to consult anything, but was frustrated a couple times enough to have to look something up, I feel inclined to take it down a notch. Not fair, I know. Almost reason enough to buy a DS. They better release more games using this engine. I'm ready to play it again to get the best ending.

That Ippo victorious boxers 2 game (ps2): 10/10 Hey! They improved upon the original, and the original was 10/10! Can I score this 11/10? Best boxing gameplay I have ever played, and they even improved the animations. More boxers! I just wish they would bring the other ippo games to the US.

Okami (ps2): 9/10 Fun, funny, entertaining. Easy to pickup gameplay. Nice different art style.

Fight Night Rd. 3 (ps2): 7/10 The game looks great on the other platforms but not so nice on ps2. Who cares? Boxing is about the gameplay, and the ippo games rock fight night hard, IMO. Fight Night/KO Kings are just really stiff, and that right thumb analog punch system is a nice idea that they never managed to execute smoothly. The whole game is basically based on your reflex speed, being able to block or parry the other guy's punch. Otherwise, your boxer's a punching bag. Lots of people have been conditioned to think this is how a boxing game is supposed to play, and then they criticize Ippo for not having clinching, of all things. I forgive Ippo for not having clinching because it allows me to move my character like it's a living extension of myself. I curse Fight Night for being a stiff boor of a game.

I rarely play new games and often just (re)play classics.

Super Mario RPG - 9/10. A true classic indeed. Nearly perfect in all marks. The only thing that keeps it from becoming truly perfect is the lack of difficulty and its shortness. Being able to carry only so many items is also quite frustrating.

Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - 9/10. Another classic. Does everything great, and its quality goes without saying.

Shikigami no Shiro 2 - 8/10. A mighty fine shmup on the DC. Music is fun and there's enough bullet hell to keep you occupied until you get around to playing the next Cave title. It's Japanese only, but there rarely is a language barrier in shmups. The difficulty is spot-on and the gameplay is great. It uses a Tension Battle System in which your points multiplier increases as you brush bullets, which keeps things exciting and gives you motive to brush mazes of bullets rather than just dodging everything.

I've been on a retro kick lately.

Been playing The Ur-Quan Masters, a remix of sorts for Star Control II.

LOL, oh boy it takes me back, I am happy *campers*.

What did you think of the later chapters in Drakengard? Personally, I think it's one of the most disturbing and f'd up games I have ever played.

Yep, I am getting there. The extra chapters (after you completed chaper 8) are a bit weird, especialy with Arioch who has an obsession on killing children.

This is a good game though.

games i've played recently

cod2 5/10 way way to much like the first one, the uber russian gun just makes the game very not fun, if i'm not using it, i know i'm at a disadvantage, if i use it i feel like i'm cheating

BF2 6.5/10 not bad, but i fell like the BF series is getting a bit drawn out, BF1942 and the RTR exp pack will always hold a place in my mind as one of the all time greatest games, and vietnam and this were trying to distance themselves a bit, but they just didn't have that fun factor that 1942 had

BF2142 9/10 much better then BF2, new titan mode adds some fun, just recovers some of the fun factor that the original had

Rainbow six: ravenshield 10/10 such a fun game, bugs and all, maybe it was the community that existed a few years back, but it was just a blast, such a tight nit group of people, any cheaters on twl we're basically ostracized, i really need to get my hands on vegas, but thats for when i actually have time to play games

WOW 9/10 fun game, tons of stuff to do (maybe to much) again a solid community depending on the server

Heh heh, wait until you get to chapter 12. That's what the real fun begins.

Don't really have much time to play too much, but right now:

Castlevania - Symphony of the Night 10/10 (third playthrough)
God of War - 8/10 (game needs way more bosses, a bit too easy on normal, should have picked a harder difficulty)
Castlevania - Portrait of Ruin 8/10

I've been playing a few games for 360 at once. Most of the time it's either Tiger Woods 07 or Rainbow 6 Vegas. R6 is great, single player was fun but the ending was a let down. Why can't developers just make a game that ends? The online side of this game is the best part imo. I have played online R6 way more than GOW.

I've always like the TW's games, this one isn't a let down, though I would like if some new courses were released on Live. Anyone know if they plan to do that at all?

Also been playing NHL 07, Splinter Cell DA, and Gears...
