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.
