Orcinus orca, more commonly reffered to as the killer whale, is a toothed whale and member of the dolphin family. Orcas are found in oceans across the world, from the arctic seas to more tropical waters. While some feed on fish exclusively, others hunt marine mammals such as seals. Orcas have been known to play (violently) with their food. If you love nature videos, something awesome awaits you after the break.

Anyway, the Gamer Limit Staff got together this weekend and discussed what we’ve all been playing lately. We invite you to do the same. Hit up the comments below and let us know what you’ve been playing.

MacGregor: I’ve been giving my PSP some love this week. I played The 3rd Birthday for review. That was…weird. It may not be the best game I’ve ever played, but it’s definitely one of the strangest.

Other than that, Valkyria Chronicles II and Half Minute Hero. For someone who doesn’t really like RPGs, I sure have been playing a lot of them lately.

Carusi: Aside from reviews, I’ve been playing Donkey Kong Country Returns. It’s a lot of fun but borrows a bit too heavily from the music of the original trilogy.

Hunter: That’s a bad thing?

Carusi: While that’s okay up to a certain point, excessively borrowing from prior games straddles the line between being an upgraded remake as opposed to an actual sequel.

Bratt: I need to put some more time into Crysis 2′s multiplayer before I finish the review.

Yue: I’ve been playing Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 2: Retribution for review. It’s great game that offers a unique change of pace from the standard RTS.

Other than that, I’ve been playing the hell out of (and watching my fair share of) StarCraft 2 – trying to climb the ladder up to masters league.

Hunter: I tried to play a little Killzone 3. It’s less shitty, but still pretty broken. I got back into Black Ops with some friends. That’s been fun, but only when playing with people I know. Randos suck.

MacGregor: I checked out the KZ3 update briefly. No problems though. Sucks for you.

Hunter: Finally I’ve been playing DarkStar One: Broken Alliance — it’s a 360 game that came out last year. It’s a port of this space sim game from 2006. The game sucks. It’s super boring (so far) and the universe feels really empty. It wants to be Freelancer, but it has bland art direction, a very static feeling universe, weird controls, and terrible voice acting.

Carter: I’m easing into a new job and moving house, so I’ve been doing a lot of iPhone gaming lately. Kami Retro is really fun, as are the myriad of shmups I’ve been diving into.

I’ve also played a bit of Dissidia 2 [I don't feel like egging on Square with that dreadful real title] — the story mode is pretty fun.

Carusi: What is it with Square-Enix and titles lately? Dissidia 02 dife-whatsit, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, come on guys, what happened to good old number sequels?

Carter: I refuse to support that abomination of a moniker.

MacGregor: Oh! And I’ve been playing the hell out of The Bigs 2 on the PS3. It’s baseball season and I really can’t get enough of the Dodgers right now. In my last game we crushed the Astros 31 to 16.

  1. Crysis 2 singleplayer complete and I’ve put a good few hours into the multiplayer. Working on the review right now!

    That video is crazy D:

  2. Actually that free ME2 on PC coupled with my slacker nature of never buying the DLC on the 360 and the ease of finding ME1 saves to import has got me playing through that again. Turns out you can’t use a controller though… PC “enthusiasts” may love m/kb but I have to be honest, the second here and there you save by not needing to pause to activate abilities is vastly outweighed for me by the comfort and ease of use of a controller.

    Beat Bayonetta, Vanquish, played through most of Lost Planet 2, started Demon Souls, started Crysis 2 (not too interesting of a game), been playing Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 with a sprinkle of Audiosurf. Right now I’m trying to focus on beating God of War 1 and 2 for PS3

    Rage = best and most original FPS of 2011. This game has guts to not copy the sradnatd success formula that narrow minded Battlefield and COD fanboys so desperately crave. It’s a shooter, it takes skill, and it’s tons of nonstop in your face action fun. From the visuals to the audio, the way the enemies attack you, the way their AI works, the way they react to your guns, easily an extremely underrated game. You know who hates RAGE? Borderlands and COD fanboys. ? Actual gamers love it.
