I haven't played all of the DLC, just Broken Steel and The Pitt.

Broken Steel is essential to get and download right away right when you start the game, so you can level up to 30 and continue exploring after end game.

The Pitt was pretty lame... I admit to getting it only for achievement point whoring.

Not sure if you can install DLC to a USB.

The file sizes for DLC I have is:
Broken Steel: 621 mb
Operation Anchorage: 370
Pitt: 493

Kind of playing devil's advocate here since I'm generally more fond of Japanese games, but I'm a girl and I've never had a problem with Western art direction. I loved the visuals of the Baldur's Gate games and Planescape Torment, and The Witcher 2 is just about the most impressive looking game I've ever seen. It's true that I do tend toward softer, more cartoonish art, but my (also female) friend swears by a more realistic approach and swoons over the graphics of games like Uncharted and Mass Effect. So I'd be inclined to say it's less of a male-female thing and more one of personal taste.

Now if you're having a go at games for not presenting compelling female characters from a writing perspective a lot of the time, then there I'm with you. But it's something that's getting better and better. And I wouldn't say Western games are any more guilty of it than Japanese ones. Heck if nothing else, Western RPGs usually offer you the chance to play as a girl if you want to, as well as giving you some degree of control over her appearance and personality. Yes there are token bimbos in some Western games, but that's true of Japanese games too. Heck there are plenty of Japanese games that trade either heavily or completely on female sex appeal. Ar Tonelico 3, anyone?

Oh, and reading back on previous posts, was Uncharted being cited as a game that isn't really appealing to women? Really? I thought both Drake and Elena were fantastic, well-rounded leads that would appeal equally to those of both genders. And I had a pretty massive crush on Drake over the two games.

You or your friend wouldn't happen to be single, would you? I love women with brains.

At least be a creep to someone who has more than 11 posts.

I'm playing this right now too... the game is just downright gorgeous and handles pretty well (feels like a fucking sonic game).

My only complaint is that at certain times when you're moving pretty fast it sort of becomes hard to see details like enemies and platforms. I'm not sure if it's because the backgrounds are super-detailed, it's just a demo, or i'm tired and just having a hard time :)

The remix of the green hill zone theme is bringing some major nostalgic tears to my eye. I was born in 1982 so I was at the right age when sonic first came out to just absolutely freak out about how cool that game was.

Is it some rule around here that you must link the hugest possible images possible?

I used to think I had a shot at becoming a star athlete

Note: Never played any teams sports except for one year of little league baseball and one year on my high school bowling team

It doesn't matter if you've worked all night... watching the price is right still makes you feel unemployed

some wuss invaded my game in Demon's Souls and I was totally smoking his ass. He quit like a chump

Nice! Have you tried invading someone? Be sure not to get killed before you reach him, that's pretty humiliating lol.

I don't have a black stone yet. Only blue and white.

What's the control setup for Ocarina? Move w/ analog, inventory w/ dpad, camera w/ baxy?

Since peeps have been asking about Demon's here I thought I ask a quick noob question.

How do you become / get dark phantoms in your world?

If you summon a player w/ a blue stone will they ALWAYS help you?

Just found out that Ryan Dunn passed away, he had just started hosting a new show on G4 along with Jessica Chobot called proving ground. After all the crazy stunts he pulled it's ironic that he passed away in a car crash.

The early report I saw was that the last pic he posted to twitter or something before he died was him drinking. Also cops said he was most likely speeding.

Still sucks though, someone else died and I thought he was pretty funny.

Also, I look stupid in hats. I have a big Polish head

The joy I have right now.

I'm new to demon's souls and have been so busy I haven't had much time to play. I'm saying fuck it right now and I'm playing the 1st area still right before the tower knight.

I placed down a blue stone on the big bridge. Well I had killed the red dragon in my world but the world I got summoned to he was still there.

So guess what. Thing killed me as soon as I got there. Well I put another one down and got summoned right away by a new guy and we fought the tower knight.

That was so damn fun, to work as a team like that w/ some stranger for a few minutes then go back. I'm going to fight that boss on my own and I'm curious as to how that will go w/ only one person

I fucking love this game. Top notch.
