    Borderlands 2 and Mark of The Ninja. You should be playing these games.

    I played Borderlands 2 for a couple hours last night. I think I am going to really like this game. What is your character? I'm playing Zero, I plan on going melee branch (that was the right most branch I think) although I am HEAVILY tempted to also go sniping. Is a 2 tree hybrid viable in this game you think?

    You guys, there is a new Humble Indie Bundle. Pay what you want (but pay more than the average for a bonus game, and they sometimes add another game or two later). The games are: Dustforce, Rochard, Shatter, S.P.A.Z., Torchlight, and Vessel.

    I have been playing Shatter, and it is a ton of fun. It is a Breakout-style game, but with an amazing soundtrack and some interesting additions to the genre (like the ability to push/pull with your paddle). Speaking of soundtracks, you also get those from the bundle.

    Torchlight is just like Diablo II/Diablo III. It is awesome.

    If you haven't played Black Mesa then you are seriously missing out. This mod feels like it was professionally done. It's seriously exhilarating getting to reexplore the Half-Life world with such attention to detail. A lot of love was put into this thing. Also it's free.

    Thanks for the heads up, just purchased and am looking forward to digging into these games.

    Resident Evil 6 demo was pretty boring for the most part but I am still looking forward to grabbing the game. I hope they make moving around a bit more fluid before release.

    Anyone picking up a WiiU? I went around looking for a preorder yesterday but I seem to be about a week too late :-(

    I'm still on the fence. And you can still preorder the "normal" version at places like Gamestop, and also find bundle 'deals' for the 32GB edition and a game and extra controller at places like Walmart. Don't give up yet!

    Wish I did that fucking commercial. I would have had a free wiiU.

    Thank you Nathan for news about Black Mesa, that project took...what like 5-8 years to complete? I hope they get a mod for PS3's/Xbox's Orange Box.

    Imagine playing Half Life from the original all the way to Episode 2. Fuuuuuuuuuuuu epic.

    Just preordered Black Ops 2 Hardened Edition for PS3.

    Looks like Game Stop just started a wait list for the WiiU, I am now #1 on the wait list for my local store to get a Deluxe WiiU. Hope that means I can get one the first week or so...

    Yes, I'm sure they're just kicking themselves over the six years they spent outselling both their competitors combined.

    Borderlands 2 has taken over my life somewhat.

    Also, new versions of Pokemon Black and White are released here just in time for my 7 hr flight to NYC next Friday. That should be a good test of my 3DS battery life.

    I just beat Dark Souls for the first time. Amazing game. I should probably thank Dogvolta for convincing me to grab it. Took me about 35 hours to beat. I just started my NG+ but I'm going to take a different approach on this play through. There are a few areas that I never checked out (Valley of the Drakes, Ash Lake, etc.) so I want to try and see everything this game has to offer.

    I've played a metric assload of BL2 as well, but I lurved the first one. My Borderlands online partner bailed on me this time around, but fuck him, this game is way better than the first one. I love the integration of the original characters and the side characters are awesome.

    It's probably the best action RPG I've ever played, and I played all of Fallout New Vegas in survival mode and finished 100% of Skyrim. Skyrim felt like a job to me after awhile - Borderlands 2 feels like a vacation. Tiny Tina is crackin' me up.

    Congrats. I remember my first time killing gwyn...I had the shakes I was so excited haha. I've beaten the game numerous times since then, NG+s and NG. To be honest there may be even more areas and aspects of the game unexplored than you think. On subsequent play throughs I had a great time messing around with sun covenant and gravelording other players.
    I can't wait for the expansion. I haven't played the game in a while and am looking forward to picking it up again with fresh content

    I know I'm way late, but I finally picked up the first two Assassin Creed games off Amazon. Figured I should play both before picking up the upcoming part 3.

    Tough for me to argue against it. However, I would say that I liked the V.A.T.S combat system from Fallout a bit better than than the general ready/fire/aim in Borderlands 2. 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!

    Been really enjoying it. A refreshing change of pace from WoW, and one I really needed, so I figured I'd give this a try for the same price of the Panda upgrade and a month of playtime. The combat is more action-oriented, so you get to run around while casting and dodging attacks is essential, and the graphics are also impressive.

    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.
