I was actually getting a Ph.D. in medium energy nuclear physics, but I fell in love with teaching while getting my MS.  Glad I made the change!

I've gone back and replayed God of War 3 to compare it to Lords of Shadow.  I agree that LoS has the better combat system overall.  Gabriel feels very responsive, and his attacks must be used against enemies in a certain way.  The only real complaint I have is that there is a lot of padding in LoS.  The game could have been trimmed here and there to make a much leaner experience.  I'm not going to complain about a product that's bursting with value, but LoS has you doing things just a bit too long, and you slog through too many packs of enemies on the way to your goal.  The game hits its stride in the castle area, but this is after a fairly forgettable opening segment.  LoS starts kinda bland, gets really great, and then sorta slides off again.  Definitely worth checking out if you like the action/adventure genre. 

Oh yeah, and that ending has me very curious....

I was hoping for three hour long podcasts every week, but the nature of RPGs (not to mention the drain on my own psyche) prevents such a thing from being realistic. 

You guys don't understand how happy I am that you all like the show.  It really means a lot to me.

I would say "no".

Maybe they were going for a Fist of the North Star vibe with New Vegas.  I understand trying to balance out the melee and unarmed combat because they were hard to work with in F3 (though not impossible), but this is pretty crazy stuff.  I used the Rebirth mod to start my character over again because I didn't want to slog through all of the previous visited content.  I can pretty much punch a deathclaw in the face and not even worry about him taking me out.  I feel bad for people that tried to play the game through like F3, because between the DT and unarmed/melee dominance you can easily fuck up a character in NV.

Holy shit!  I just picked up the ballistic fist weapon, and with no points in unarmed and an endurance of 5 I'm destroying everything in my path!  Seriously, I just took out the entire Legion with ease.  God, now I want to restart my game and use unarmed attacks the whole way through.

Wow, I just found out about the strength requirement on weapons in New Vegas.  Well this is great.  I usually start my character with 4 strength so I have a higher intelligence.  Now I find out that I've basically fucked myself because weapons like the anti-material rifle require 8 strength.  Damnit, that would have been great information to have when I started.  Again, a minor change from Fallout 3 that has a purpose and certainly makes sense, but also takes way from the overall enjoyment of the game, imo.
