not a terrible list.


would add oblivion, the witcher 2: assassins of kings, tenchu z, metal gear rising revengence, injustice: gods among us, & lastly, ninja gaiden 2.


theres others im sure. darksiders had its moments, diablo 3, those are both on other consoles though, so thats different than xbox xclusives.


not enough love for beat em ups & fighters in general these days, imo.


dark souls is the single most overrated game. period.

im a little late to the GBA party. precisely, 9 years or so.

if you don't own a backlit GBA, good luck connecting both your GBA to your GC, along with your trusty battery powered back light unit simultaneously, just so you can view your mog's radar screen.

its the first FF game that doesn't use HPs & the characters look more like Saturday morning cartoons than FF characters.

still, there was some thought put into this more dungeon crawl-ish FF game. you can create multiple characters & they all share the current years' story advancement, even though you can never use more than one character at the same time. no SP parties here.

its pretty fun, even playing by yourself, & is very much worthy of the Nintendo seal of approval, even if it is a bit off kilter.

I just hope we can play it @ our own pace, & hopefully 50% of the game isn't cutscenes. if I wanted to watch a movie, I would do so. if I want to play a game, I want to play a game. also, if we don't feel like doing the next major objective (say you want to do some treasure hunting, exploring, or just generally go around & kill things) we don't have to. will this have new game plus? everything else about it screams arkham city to me. except there's multiplayer, which is apparently getting terrible reviews.

who's really naïve in this scenario? all they have to do is watch the 6:30 evening news. death, mayhem, & chaos can all be found right on their televisions. then they wonder why other people mimic this behavior.

hokuto shinken type characters can cause bodies to explode yes. the first game, I believe theres a demo on xbl, PSN, idk. this looks to be very similar, with more playable characters & the addition of online coop & vs. gameplay modes. if you ever played dynasty warriors, its very much that kind of gameplay. the NA version just launched last month.

http://www.egmnow.com/articles/reviews/egm-review-aliens-colonial-marines/ this seems completely opposite of the gamespot review. which makes me wonder, who's right? im not big on shooters but this was definitely one of my favorite movies growing up normally I couldn't give two **** about reviews, but I'm on a tiiiight budget & there are several games I'm interested in, basically its going to come down to a decision. I've heard everything from its just terrible with awful AI & its too easy, to fan-boys may find some redeeming qualities. the apparent price drop (just outside of a month since release) already indicates its not selling well. how long do the average owners of this game play it, before they put it down & never pick it up again? does it have any replay value? is it the case of it should either be single player, or MP, meaning all the development went into one vs. the other? is it fun or does it just suck? I saw some gameplay footage & the environments look pretty well done. how often do you find yourself using the motion tracker? does it not even matter because the xenos are too easy to not kill? can you start the game on the highest difficulty? does the xeno's acid blood burn your character? how does this compare to similar games, like say left for dead? I'll most likely end up buying it. I just get the feeling its not a good decision however. really wish there would have been a demo. I see redbox has it in my area. its not exactly cheap though. (2$ a day + tax) wondering if it'd just be more economical to buy it. @ that point..?. thanks.

this game is timeless. the 2nd game i ever bought for the 360. its always on my list of games i go back to when i get saddened by the direction gaming has taken a turn for. it holds up to games made today. a shame no companies are exploring new titles in this series. an HD collection would be prime. especially considering the o.g. xbox game isnt backwards compatible.
