What I'm playing now: Resistance 2 (PS3)

I wasn't all that impressed with the original Resistance: Fall of Man; standard story, iffy graphics, familiar gameplay ... and that goes for the sequel as well, for that matter. But as far as the multiplayer experience in Resistance 2 goes, well ... it's fast and it's furious. Why? It's all about the numbers, and in the case of Resistance 2, we're talking -- wait for it -- 60 players at once. Not 10, not 16, not 24 ... 60 at a time, all tossed into a potpourri of wide-open (and gorgeously rendered) multiplayer arenas, along with enough artillery to blow up a small country. There's nothing subtle about it, but I have to admit, it's addictive.

On deck: Gears of War 2 for the Xbox 360, if I can ever get out of this Resistance 2 fracas ...
