I figure if I can run BF3 on ultra/high I should be good on Diablo 3. I hope so at least.

Can somebody please convince me to keep playing Mass Effect 3? Cuz I am bored off of my ass with it and I don't even think I'm 25% of the way through the main storyline.

No. If you don't like it don't play it. I liked it so it was easy to complete. I didn't like Red Dead Redemption and never beat it. I just traded it in.

You're probably right. The problem is that I WANT to like it.

Do you have a PS3? Give me some sleeper picks if you do...

No, but I used to love emulators about 7 or 8 years ago when I first discovered them. People also used to get their xbox modded and every NES, SNES, Sega, etc. game on it.

Yeah, Bibble Bobble is pretty fun.

For whatever reason, I love non-sports NES games yet dislike 98 percent of them on any modern gaming console. Probably the difficulty/high learning curve of the new ones, I guess.

I know what you're saying. I tried to force myself to play Red Dead until I said fuck this I'll put Fallout 3 back in.


I do but I don't have a ton of games for it. Nothing that isn't a big AAA title I guess. The God of War Collection and the Metal Gear Solid Collection was great because I was able to go back and play games I missed. For as much as it pissed me off and was buggy the Dead Island game was kinda fun. The idea was great, zomg zombie RPG!, but the execution was utter shit.

I actually think Dead Island was better than you do. As a mindless action game by an independent developer it was a success. Far from a classic though.

Ugh, between that and LA Noire, I don't know what one was more disappointing.

I actually liked Red Dead. LA Noire was horrible though. It looked fantastic. The voice acting was fantastic. The game play was a fucking joke.

All the bugs it had just really turned me off. Also I was disappointed that you only spend part of the time in an actual tropical setting, the rest you spent in the city and jungle and jail. More typical "dark and ominous" settings. I did like the special zombies though. I still think the Left 4 Dead series is the best zombie games though.

I rarely complete games any more. I almost always get bored before the end. Often with rpgs they become too easy and are just a matter of grinding them out. That is one thing I am looking forward to in DIII. In DII you could always die if you weren't careful.

Was anybody else disappointed with the ending of Arkham City? I mean it was a pretty good game and all as I expected, but you beat Clayface, the Joker dies pretty much on his own and that's that. I liked Arkham Asylum a little better.

I liked City more I think. Although its not by much because I thought Asylum was really good too. I thought the ending to City was fine, I enjoyed it. Plus theres other stuff scattered around that you find later thats really interesting.

I loved City. I did think the ending was a bit odd but overall the game was awesome from start to finish. It was one of the few recently that I actually finished.
