So my wife and mother in law went shopping for the evening, and when they got home, I was the proud owner of a shiny new Madden NFL12!! I skipped Madden 11 and I had no intention of getting 12 even though I thought the demo was good and I think the new additions to franchise will really improve things since I last got into Madden. They just went ahead and surprised me with it... how cool is that!roboccs
That's pretty freaking sweet. I've never had anything like that happen to me.

IGN updated their top 25 PS3 games.... Mass Effect 2 is number 2; is it really that good? I haven't played it but I've been meaning to...Laser_Hunter
I couldn't get through that list. Having each new game on another page with hardly a paragraph of text is disgusting.

I was very pleasantly surprised to say the least!! So far, I am limited to exhibition game right now because when I try to download the updated roster I keep getting errors. Server must be packed.

It was pretty good but I wouldn't put it in my top 10 list. I still need to beat ME on the laptop. Only have about 6-8 hours of it played so far.

I loveedddd ME1, ME2 IMO was good... but it let me down.

lol apparently they're making a Persona fighting game with characters from P3 and P4. I absolutely loved P3 and P4, but this is just ridiculous. I can't imagine it being any good.Texas2089
Yeah... I don't really know what to think about that. I honestly have zero interest in a Persona fighting game. It's the Japanese, I tell ya. They love RPGs and the love fighting games, so devs think its a great idea to combine the two. :P Oh well... Persona 4 on Vita WOOOOOOOOO!!!! :D

That's me, in a nutshell. I actually probably would have enjoyed ME2 a lot more if I never played the first one. Or a lot less. Who can say? All I know is that I'll never pass up an opportunity for blue booty. Never.

Okay, so I beat Human Revolution for the second time. I think I can officially formulate an opinion on this game.

The Bad - A little too geared towards stealth which goes against the Deus Ex "play it your way" model. The facial animation overall is kinda lackluster and ruins some really good story beats this game has. The boss fights in the form that they are have no purpose being in the game. The way the ending is set up is far too mechanical and seemingly rushed.

The Good - Literally every other aspect of the game. I love the atmosphere and that cyber-renaissance vibe they got going on. I think on the whole it captures what made the original so damn good.

I completely agree. I mean, I'm not quite to the end yet, but from what I've seen, you've hit the nail on the head. I LOVE CYBER-RENAISSANCE!!! I WANT EVERYTHING TO LOOK LIKE THIS!

You can always hit me up when you want something special. I definitely like your current setup though. Personally, I enjoy changing my setup every now and then. It's like getting a new tattoo or an awesome new Tshirt. :P

Also I think my project for next summer will be to play all 5 God of War games in chronological (NOT release) order.... hopefully I don't get tired of the gameplay yes i am that cool that I have video game ambitions and plans :PLaser_Hunter
Funny, I'm thinking about playing through all the MGS games in chronological order as my summer project year when the summer drought hits. And yes, ME2 was awesome. Not sure if its top 2 awesome, but definitely top 5 awesome.

Yeah that should be awesome. Supposedly there's gonna be a new character too. I hope its more than just a female MC this time and we actually get a brand new party member and more story involving this new character. Either way, its going to be great.

I'm trying to figure out if I'm interested in the series but my opinions of the game are very erratic. Sometimes I feel as if the game is enthralling and exciting whereas other times objectives feel like chores that have simply been added to increase longevity. The one good thing about CoD's short campaigns is that they are always loaded with excitement....

Well if you ever get to the second game I'm sure your opinion about the series will solidify. I regret buying R2.

Yea, I've heard R2 is a drastic change from the original. Is it true they took away the awesome narrator style? I really felt it made the story more interesting and immersive.

I never bought the first game. I had fun with the short demo so I thought R2 would've been nearlythe same. To my misfortune it wasn't.

You know what always confounds me... when a reviewer specifically call out an aspect of a game as bad and then another reviewer on a separate site calls it a good thing. For example, the IGN guy said the environments in Bodycount were boring and uninteresting, whereas in the Gamespot review environments are in "The Good" section.
