NSW, I almost messaged you about Dragon Age last night. I love Bioware games, and am sure I'd enjoy this one as well, but I just have so much other stuff. I found out it was just released for the Mac last week, and am tempted to get it on that, as I've heard the computer controls gives the action and fighting in the game more depth as you can plan and do more than is possible on the console versions. Then again, I doubt it would look as good on my Mac as it would on the PS3. Who knowz. As I mentioned before, I have so many other things I need to finish already, I should probably wait.

NSW, I really think Uncharted 2 might be up your alley. It's third person, so your Gears skills would transfer over to a good extent. Just imagine a Gears game where you are much more nimble and quick and can climb up the sides of buildings and mountains. JT says it's possibly his favorite game of all time, and I can easily see where he's coming from, it's the type of thing I can't imagine anyone who plays it won't love. You should really consider it. The campaign is one of the best I've played in any sort of action game in years. I haven't done much of the versus multiplayer stuff, but the coop stuff is an absolute blast (horde type modes, some objective modes, etc).

Mikal, while I've been a Negative Nelly about the Wii for the last year and a half (and haven't turned mine on in over a year), I have definitely been tempted by that new Mario game. Not sure if you like any of those old arcade rail shooter type games (where you aim the controller at the screen like a gun and shoot foolish suckas), but the Wii has quite a few solid ones. Mario Galaxy is a must as well, it's a blast.

Scumbo, I will probably give Uncharted 2 a shot. I have the first Uncharted game, never played it. Little Big Planet looks like fun.

I hope I like Arkham Asylum.

I hear you about having so many other games. Get to it one day, though....sort of a Mass Effect/Obilvion combo, though, not as good as my beloved Oblivion.

I have a Mac, too, but never really play any games on it. My gf plays Sims 3 and Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 on my Mac, though.

If I bought a Mac game, it would likely be one of those Civilization games.

get on that. At least play it before you play the new one. You'll get to know the characters and understand their relationship to one another when you get to the new one. For real, they're both amazing games

Xbox 360 Kid

Even the dog thinks this kid is an idiot. The slowmo parts at the end are great though.

This is my third time. They turn them around very quickly, but it still really blows. Thank G-d I got a BD player for Christmas, otherwise I wouldn't even be able to watch DVDs while the Xbox is out of commission.

I still haven't gotten a replacement Xbox yet. Glad I made a BD player purchase as well.

Speaking of buying stuff, would anyone be interested in purchasing Ghostbusters for the 360 off of me?

New? Had yours red ring of death-ed as well?

JT and I played some Uncharted 2 for a few hours this afternoon. I don't know how many times our random third player would let us both die, but I had a number of laughs as it kept going on. My favorite moment was JT and I standing in front of each other throwing punches for no reason while our third teammate was standing around waiting for us. We must have pissed him off, as he ended up throwing a grenade at us that bounced off JT and then exploded and took JT and the guy who threw it down. I revived JT and we both just stood there doing the "point and laugh" taunt while he was down. Good times.

Single-ringed, but a red ring nonetheless. Picked up a new Arcade and stuck on my hard drive and I'm good to go.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 will be my next conquest.

I've actually been playing Uncharted quite religiously this past week (I went from a 27 ran to a 37, thanks to the double , when I haven't been out, of course. It seems that we are not synchronized.

I'm playing it right now actually.
