I don't like hearing little kiddies piss and moan when things don't go their way,nor do Ilike hearing people talk smack in my ear whenI get killed. It's just childish, and it makes me want to pull out my headset. If anyone actually talked strategy it might be worth wearing one.

i bought one from plantronics for my phone for about $70. It works fine with my ps3 as well. A decent one will run you upwards of $50. Clarity, battery life, etc.... That stuff isn't very strong on the cheapys.

I've never seen Bioshock freeze up on my 360... though I've never played it for more than five hours at a time either. That whole work thing really throws off my play time.

Anyway, reviews are just meant to be a guide to help you choose which games you spend your money on. Thats it. If you don't agree with a review then by all means buy the game and see for yourself. At $60 a pop, games are getting too expensive to just pick up on a whim. Personally, if I have any doubts about a given game, I'll rent it first and see for myself.

Great, thanks for the advice. The T.V. is in a spot where it gets a lot of sun during certain times of day, which happens to be right when I get home from work. The blinds are closed but they don't seal off the light very well. I'll just have to figure something else out. Thanks again.

Has anyone noticed, or had problems with the remote cursor jumping on screen. I hadn't noticed it before, but when I turned the system on today the little hand would twitch and pop from one side of the screen to the other. It wouldn't happen all the time only perodically, about every five to ten minutes. It'd clear up after a few seconds but it's really frustrating, especially trying to play the new metroid. I've switched out the batteries, not really sure what else to do about it. Anyone have a constuctive solution?

You don't have to play through the main story right away. You can go off and do whatever you please. You can join the Thieves Guild or the Dark Brotherhood. I enjoyed the Brotherhood a great deal since it had some of the most memorable quests in any game I've ever played. Don't worry about buying all the coolest stuff right away either. A lot of stuff can be found in dungeons and quest lines. Steal what you can, sell what you don't need. Also, melee characters tend to be less costly when it comes to gold.

However, if you prefer the more traditional Japanese approach to RPGs, you should probably stop right now. Oblivion is all about you making your own way in the game world, and I think thats what trips up most people that don't like this game. It won't hold your hand and guide you through, you have to find your own way.

A friend and I are building my new machine next weekend. The motherboard can handle up to eight gigs or ram, but for now I'm only going with two. When I ask, people tell me more than two gigs would be overkill, but none of them are gamers. I'm mostly into RTS and FPS games. Supreme Commander has some serious requirements, and I know FPS' are getting more advanced all the time. Should I stick with two, or should I splurge and go for four right off the bat?

So far the worst score I've seen given to a PSP game by GS has been Dave Mirra BMX with a score of 3.9. Of the games that I've played, I'd have to go with Medieval.

Kinda seems like it would get in the way to me. It looks a little... obtuse. I don't have it though, but I do recommend the Logitech hard case.

The quote in the article only says that Sony hasn't announced anything yet. So obviously, anything not officially announced by them would fall under the rumor category. It doesn't mean the redesign is bogus, it just means they aren't ready to tell us about it yet.
