Default What games are you playing now?

The Darkness, for $7, on the 360. I'm on a cheap game kick lately. For those who don't know, this is a game from a few years back, mostly an FPS, with other-worldly superpowers. I picked it up because I've heard good things about its storytelling.

Indeed, it does have very good storytelling so far, although I'm not a big fan of the topic (mafia). I like the sense of humor. The Beserkers you hatch do funny stuff to the corpses after they kill them, like make a sarcastic remark and then pee on them.

The atmosphere of the game is very solid. The game comes from the folks who did Chronicles of Riddick, so it's got that same sort of vibe, except without the annoying presence of Vin Diesel.

My main complaint is that the shooting controls are not smooth at all. I had to turn the game down to Easy, simply because the movement was so awkward, I kept dying, and I was getting too frustrated.
