Oh really? That's too bad. I was hoping to play it someday after I have a decent comp to run things on. Ah well, guess that just makes my "list of things I should play" that much shorter.

As for me, I finished both Onimusha 2 and Psi-Ops over the turkey holiday. Both had endings (like Halo 2) that simply implied a sequel. Meh. The things I liked best about them were:

for the former -- the manipulation of parts of the story via friendship with the four sub-characters;

for the latter -- its true, I'll hop on the bandwagon now -- the physics engine (throwing stuff around was simply a blast) and the entire psychic powers gig (very well executed).

Now I'm off to.. I have no idea. I'll decide later.
