Still playing Dark Athena on 360.
I thought I had reached the end of the game when the developers surprised me and whipped out another new chunk of content to get through. To be perfectly frank, I think I was ready for the game to be over. I'm a little concerned now that it might overstay its welcome.
Still enjoying it so far, though… the writers have done a really bang-up job in clearly illustrating Riddick's character. I may not like what I see and I may not agree with it, but there's no doubt that he feels very consistent and well-defined. In this respect, they've done better than I expected, and the rest of the story has been above-average as well.
Brutal, dark, and certainly heartless at times, but above-average.
Dark Athena aside, I'm still chipping away at Emergency on the Nintendo DS and I just downloaded 'Splosion Man (XBLA) from Twisted Pixel.
Heard nothing but good things about it, so I'm very much looking forward to starting it up.
