I never really got into the whole MW craze. I play some MW2, but to me its too ping dependant. We're talking about a game where failing to register a single shot can mean the difference between preserving your kill streak and topping the scoreboard or getting shot to pieces by return fire and pushing bottom. The lack of dedicated servers means that its all random and highly unstable. Sadly, its something they refuse to fix. Then we have the whole level unbalance issues, experienced players have the better gear. However, because of the ping dependence as well as the (ever present in these CS style games) "luck factor", its rare to see someone actually stay in top spot every game.
Maybe its because I spent so many years playing competitive Natural Selection, but I'm just not blown away by the Multiplayer like some people seem to be.
Co-op mode is pretty awesome though, that I'll have to admit.

Just beat Dead Space. Loved the game, I'll probably end up beating it again and going for my first platinum trophy.

I was referring to this:

Just found a glitch that won't let me continue the main story and hunt the first dragon.All those reviews out there are bogus.

but mostly I'm just having a laugh.

I was serious about waiting a while before I pick this up though. Bethesda games are well known for being fairly broken when they first come out, so there's a good chance that this one will have its fair share of pre-patch issues as well.

They need to make a spy RPG that doesn't suck.

Eidos Montreal did that, pretty much.

Refresh my memory, what was that games name?

Kyle did not give this game a 110%, Editors choice and GAME OF THE CENTURY status? DID HE NOT SEE THE HERO TAKE OUT HIS SWORD, DID HE NOT NOTICE HIM ROLL AND SLASH? DID HE NOT WATCH THE FANS REJOICE ?!?
Seriously though, I'm kind of glad this didn't get a 90%+ score just for being Elder Scrolls.
Kind of curious how much hate mail he's getting now though.

What's the glitch? And for what system? Didn't happen for me, and I'm assuming for the majority of the people that bought it.

I can see you're feeling left out, but don't you worry, I'm sure Bethesda hasn't forgotten about you. Just be patient and you'll run into a game breaking bug as well.

Seriously though, I'm sure its a great game to say the least, but does it really surprise anyone that a Bethesda title has game breaking bugs on release? Not me, that's for damn sure. I'll give them the regular half year or so to patch it up before I consider buying it.

I love the Zelda series, but I never really got why people went so mental over OoT, calling it the best game ever and so on. It was probably marketing that ended up sticking in peoples minds. It was one of, if not the first, game I ever pre ordered and while I enjoyed it, it never really struck me as the "OMG EPIC" game it was made out to be, but I already mentioned this several times so I wont go into detail.

Less than a week left for Skyward Sword, really tempted to get this on release.

I'm actually interested in this, Ill have to keep an eye out for it. Assuming the price doesn't go over what they usually charge for the HD remakes it will probably go on my must buy list.

I just beat the ROCKETBIRDS: Hardboiled Chicken demo. Had me saying "what the f**k did I just play" by the end. Its actually quite a fun platform shooter, but at the same time incredibly weird. Anyone who tries the demo will see what I mean.

Weirder than Revenge of the Sunfish?

In a way, yeah it is. Maybe I find it less weird because I recognise the creative process behind RotS. Its just a dude playing around with whatever maker he's using (my guess is Game Maker or MMF) throwing random stuff he makes at the player, its weird but its also screaming "LOOK AT ME, I'M SUPPOSED TO BE STRANGE AND DISTURBING".

Hardboiled Chicken just does its thing like there was nothing strange about a jetpacking commando rooster battling dictator penguins. Its obviously not taking itself seriosuly, but its presented as if it did, and that makes it entertaining and weird at the same time.

Takeshi Kitanos NES game is still king as far as bizarre videogames go though. It includes a karaoke segment, a phase where you aren't allowed to touch the controller for 60 minutes and it insults your intelligence if you manage to beat it.

Goddammit, no PC port?

:(

I'm sure it will make it to Steam eventually.

I just downloaded the demo, Ill give it a bash sometime later today. I don't know why, but I have a good feeling about this game despite having very limited experience with the Rayman series.

EDIT: Getting this when its out.

Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain made it on to the EU PSN.

Just watched a "WTF is..." of this. Not counting a few minor details it looks EXACTLY like MW2. Truth be told, I was expecting something like this though.

Just beat the DLC, I'm fairly sure I did everything there was to do in the game, it took roughly eight or nine hours. Id say the length is fine, since any more would just get boring. Still think it was a little pricey for the amount of content it offered, but I don't regret the purchase.

Also, for anyone that likes a challenge:

I bought the european move edition of heavy rain and it has evverything that is supposed to be in the director's cut. Everything.

That's pretty much what I thought, and why I was asking if there actually is any difference. It seems like they just renamed the Move edition to "Directors Cut" for the NA release.
