    I know Origin and EA sucks and all, but I love SimCity too much and this game looks beautiful:

Also, Borderlands 2 strikes me as a genuine co-op game. I'm soloing right now and is it ever a bitch! I talked to my buddy up at MS last night and I might re-up my Live account just so I can play it with him.

    On a side note- some of the quips from Salvador and the weapons style remind me a bit of old school Duke Nukem. I'm a sucker for crass in game language and bravado from my characters!
    Well, I have nothing but love for Fallout and the VATS combat system, but the sheer number of weapons/mods that let you play your style of game in BL2 win the day for me. I really loved the way they integrated the original characters in BL2, as most of the key plot points revolved around that foursome.

    However - nothing will top the final assault in Fallout 3 for me. Playing support to that mechanical behemoth was one of my favorite gaming moments ever.

    Anyhow - I beat BL2 last night. The end wasn't as good as the big moments with Jack and Angel earlier in the game, but it was cool. Some of it was really difficult alone.... frustrating. But if you play single player, you can approach the side missions with your own schedule and do what you want when you want to, as opposed to rushing through this or that because some other dude needs to go get dinner. And I admit I found a crevasse to snipe the big baddie from a mile away, rather than just getting my ass handed to me 50 times in a row. Then I went back in with three random onliners and crushed it in one try. Go figure. BL1 was way harder with others than BL2 is.

    I don't know what I'm playing next, but this game was extremely satisfying.

    What really sucks, is you need to play Brotherhood and Revelations as well if your going to get caught up with the main story lines.

    Found out on Friday that one of my favorite games from PSX days is on the PSN, Parasite Eve. I installed it to my Vita and spent the weekend going through it. It came out about a year after Final Fantasy 7 so it has a great mix between the gameplay and look of FF7 and FF8. As with most great Squaresoft games the soundtrack is classic as well.

    Parasite Eve was a fantastic experience when I played it. I believe I was in Jr. High, which I consider the golden years of my gaming (yes that includes FF7 of course). Every single game I played I ate up and accepted and got incredibly involved/lost in...regardless of the game's imperfections, flaws, etc. So the REALLY good games, such as Parasite Eve, were incredible.

    I'm debating between the price cut Wii or the price cut 360 with Kinect. I'm a Nintendo loyalist

    If you can get a Wii for $100, it would be a good deal. Maybe $120 at most, which is about the cost of a brand new NDS (which I think was much better than the Wii). It's worth it for the Mario and Zelda games alone.

    I can tell you it's helluva lot cheaper and a much better deal than the money you'll be shelling out for a console designed for a 2nd grade class.

    Has anyone played Retro City Rampage yet?

    I'm going to download it tonight, based off what I've heard:

    In anticipation for the new Simcity, I bought Simcity 4 off Amazon. The deluxe version was about $15. I had never played this one, and I think it's pretty amazing.

    I've learned that I probably wouldn't make a good mayor, governor, or president. My solution to balancing the budget is to build factories everywhere. Understanding that Obama doesn't have the option of zoning for factories because of their being outsourced makes me appreciate the difficulty of his job.

    Why might my PS3 be able to connect to PSN, but not to the Black Ops server? I accidentally kicked it a few days ago while walking past it. It wasn't on but Black Ops was in it.

    Halo by far, Black ops is completely boring when comparing the two.

    Bonus tip: Halo 1/2 Co-op + Free day + Legendary Mode + Friend you can do lines with all day while gaming = Amazing gaming experience.

    So I'm enjoying Assassin's Creed 3 so far... but one thing I have to say...

    the lock picking mechanic was designed by someone who wants to be held down and force fed an entire bag of dicks!

    Skyrim on the 360 burned a persistent image into my older JVC DLP TV. It's actually several images but the most pronounced is where my character is positioned on the screen. I'm going to put in a new lamp tomorrow but my guess is the shadowing is permanent. Kinda bummed about it but I guess I was looking for an excuse to buy a new LED/LCD.

    PS: SKYRIM- I'd like my life back! kthx

    Upgrading my computer and in the process I realized I can slap an extra fan on the other side of cpu heatsink. Nerding out at how big it is now.

    Time for super FPS with Mechwarrior Online and BF3!
