My first gamespot post in years! At least after migrating to Giant bomb.

Now, in terms if single-player i'd rank them (from best to worst)

Halo CE

Halo Reach

Halo 3

Halo 2

In terms of multiplayer

Halo Reach

Halo 2

Halo 3

Halo CE

I'm still debating whether Reach or CE is the better game, but both are comprable in terms of quality. Overall Bungie had a nice run with Halo, and i'm glad that they ended it with a bang.

Everyone trashing film critics should realise that they like fun/entertaining films as much as anyone else. How else to you explain Star Trek, Iron Man, The Dark Knight, every Pixar movie, The Hangover, ect all getting fantastic reviews? Star Trek has a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. One of the highest scores of this or any year. Critics like good characters fused with entertaining action and well-written stories. The new Transformers (which I haven't seen yet, but this is what I gather most critics think) is just great-but-empty special effects. The first Transformers wasn't even that poorly reviewed. It has a 57% on Rotten Tomatoes.

I think I'm going to take Spanish, then evaluate how difficult the language course is. If Spanish I is incredibly easy, I will take French I next year. I have reservations about entering a language class without any prior knowledge of the language.

Keep in mind, that while I speak Spanish fluently, my reading and writing skills are sub-par.

I'm at the point where I think that I should be taking a high school language. I speak Spanish rather fluently (i'm Hispanic), but I think that French would help me more in my future career (Art/Film). My only knowledge of the French language is "FouxDa Fa Fa" by Flight of the Conchords and a bunch of French films that i've seen. Do I need to have any understanding of the language before I take it?

[QUOTE="Cedmln"]The story was lacking a lot. I NEVER felt connected to any character and the ending is very poor and unclimatic. Trust me. ITs not worth the time of someone who knows a good story's time.Legolas_Katarn
I agree as good as the city is in GTA 4 or the environment in Bioshock, if I don't give a damn about any of the characters, I don't care about the story. In GTA 4s case, I played though the game wanting almost all of the characters to die (except for the Irish guy and Jacob).

Are you kidding me? How could you not love Niko, Brucie, The McRearys, Dwayne, ect. While I prefer MGS4 as a game, GTA IV has by far the best and most fully fleshed-out characters in a video game this year.

Finish it. The story is incredible. Although I prefer MGS4, I'm glad that GTAIV won Giantbomb's game of the year.

As an impartial owner of all three current gen consoles I would have to agree. PS3 is slightly better than the 360 as a home theater box, but the 360 wins by a significant margin in terms of games. The only amazing exclusive PS3 game is MGS4 (I have yet to play Little Big Planet which is probably amazing as well). And don't get me started on the Wii. I waited outside of a gamestop for hours to preorder it and I regret it.

The Xbox 360 is a fantastic console but I do have gripes with it (such as the use of a proprietary hard drive unlike the PS3) but there is no contest to it's game line up.
