Wish the Deals with gold would have been better, it's all Lego games, I've not bothered with Lego games since Lego Star Wars, are any of the other games any good?

I don't have an X1 yet but Child of Light is great and I highly recommended for that old school RPG fix.

HATED GoW: Judgment, bought that ish for $25 a couple years ago and still feel ripped off. I bought Bullet Witch the same day and felt that was more worth it. I wanted to like the game, but it was just too segmented and restricted for my tastes, and all the cool multiplayer modes from GoW3 were taken out. It also just didn't look as nice as the Epic trilogy, which had the visuals DOWN by GoW3. Such a massive disappointment.

However I am quite stoked about finally playing Child of Light, and that Army of Two game seems like some dumb commando fun.

Judgement has co-op right?

I realized last night that there's very little I still want in Destiny, and the odds of the Nightfall giving it to me are real slim, and I started to lose my drive to play that game. So if I act right now, and replace Destiny with some other halfway decent co-op game, I might be able to break it's hold on me and finally get clean.
