Gaming update

On the gaming front. I've been alternating between, MW2, Assassin's Creed II and The God of War Collection.
Man, I love these GoW games.  I just finished playing through the first one yesterday (looks great in HD) and will be starting part 2 soon.  I played through each one multiple times on the PS2, but I am having just as good a time playing them again.  I'm especially excited about seeing part 2 in HD, because it was by far the most impressive looking PS2 game I ever played.  I wish Sony would release a collection of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus like this.
I also got to download the GoW III demo.  I had already seen this demo first hand at PAX this year, but never go to play it (there was a loooong line).  The visuals for the demo are fantastic, and you can really see the jump in quality after trying the demo on the heels of playing through the original game.  The GoW series has always done a great job of showing scale and making the player feel very, very small next to some awesomely large vistas and sights, and I cannot wait to see what's in store for this new game, now that the developer has the PS3's capabilities to work with.
Assassin's Creed II is still amazing, although my playing sessions are a lot shorter now.  That weekend when I got sucked in I was playing for huge chunks of time, but I can not play for about an hour or so and move on to something else.
In non-game related news, after having the final two discs of Battlestar Galactica in my possession for about 3 months (seriously), I finally finished the season and returned the discs to Netflix.
Holy Crap how could it have taken me so long!!!!  What a way to end the season!  I can't wait until I get season 2!
