Looking forward to Guild Wars 2 more than D3, to be honest. It's a shame my PC isn't up to scratch!

I have to say my GAME OF THE YEAR so far would be SAINTS ROW THE THIRD which I'm shocked at because it looked kinda stupid in the ads. I didn't play the first or second as they looked kinda silly too.

But WOW, zombies, wreslting, FPS, Jets, attack choppers, tanks, GTA style play, just awesome. It's like 500 games in one. I played the single player missions and it took so long I finally sent it back to gamefly as it was cutting in to my practice time! Be careful!

Would love to play that game, big fan of crazy games.

Here's a game you PC gamers should try out immediately, Tribes Ascend! It's FREE, yes, free to play:

Great game!

The original developer guy who made the first one such a killer title is back! The second one was a bit weak IMHO, forgive me of course if it's someone's "pet" game and they love it to pieces, but for my money it was lame. sad.gif But this next one looks like it could be on par with the first one.

Just yesterday I started and finished "Journey" for PS3. Just 3 hours long, maybe even less.
After playing it I don't understand the hype around it. Pretty slow, sub-par graphics although stylish, and a very dissapointing ending for my taste (no spoilers).
Only good thing about it was the music.

Also, pretty expensive for a 2-3 hours game, at 13 €.

I guess I'm alone in my thoughts about it since everyone and their mother is giving it a 9/10 score.

I've never owned either, only played on copies owned by other people, but I know what you mean. The second paled in comparison to the first's story, apparently.

I don't trust the 'traditional' review sites such as IGN anymore, I stopped reading their reviews a long time ago. I'd rather listen to somebody like Totalbiscuit (of YouTube fame) discuss the game, or I'll watch a few parts of a playthrough.

I never really gamed much since the snes / megadrive days. I would occasionally fire up the snes and play an hour or so of streetfighter or super star wars but a gamer mate at work had been raving about skyrim when it came out. I eventually bought a copy on the PC and promtly got totally hooked!
It was a few months ago when I got it but I picked it up after work on a friday night and went back into work on monday morning with 22 hours gameplay under my belt LOL! I really got a bit obsessed with it for a month or so rolleyes.gif It was AWESOME! really like that game.
I dont think I have ever played a game as much as I played skyrim. Even back when I considered myself a bit of a gamer!

If my PC could handle it, I'd be playing the enhanced edition as we speak! Fantastic company, too.

It's in my GAMEFLY que! Can't wait smile.gif I have RAGE on the way which looks like a cross between a shooter and twisted metal. I usually only keep most games over a weekend or two and try to limit play to an hour or so. I don't usually get very far but I don't want to spend too much time. Just want to sort of get the flavor/vibe.

Rage is probably a great rental game, it is rather short. After about a 3rd run to the same place I took it back. If you haven't played Bulletstorm I recommend it, I enjoyed it a ton.

The Legemd of Grimrock:

Playing this game right now - it's fantastic. Came out last week, it's a dungeon crawler with fairly basic mechanics, and the overall idea and look is simple, but really well done. It's around £10, so roughly $20.

If anybody is interested in playing the two that were suggested above, Bulletstorm was on sale for $5 last week, and I believe RAGE can be bought for $5 right now.

Also, with regards to the Witcher 2, it's a very adult-orientated, mature, 'we're not writing for the kids'-type game (just got this info. off a gaming podcast), so it may be something very different to what you're used to, and after seeing the CGI trailer for the enhanced edition, how can you not want to play it?

I played many video games, Diablo, Diablo 2, Diablo III ( I have the Beta biggrin.gif ), World of Warcraft, Guitar hero, League of Legends, Zelda, The Witcher, Doom, Warcraft ( I'm a big fan of the story, I know it by heart ). Now I am playing for 5 hour / week, I'm spending all my free time in sports, guitar, and things like that tongue.gif

Good plan! It's a good idea to keep video game time to a minimum. It's easy for it to get out of hand! It's fun to play now and then smile.gif
