That sucks you're having so many problems, JT. That's the one unfortunate thing about the PS3, multiplatform games are almost always better on 360 because the development hardware is essentially identical to a PC, so it's supposedly cake for developers to work with. Sony unfortunately didn't give that aspect much thought while they were stroking their own hardware boners while developing the PS3.

That said, PS3 exclusives usually are pretty awesome. I'm getting excited for Killzone 3!

Just finished the Black Ops campaign. I didn't play Modern Warfare or World At War but compared to Modern Warfare 2 it was great. It had a decent storyline and a surprising twist at the end.

Ya, it's super annoying. Apparently Rockstar is doing it backwards for LA Noire and are developing for PS3, then porting to the others, so I'm stoked about that.
But in this case, it seems like Treyarch have just plain neglected the PS3. I dont know a whole lot about the tech stuff, but I think it's mostly problems with their PS3 servers and not so much with the software.
Thank God for exclusives

I haven't had many troubles with getting into matches so far. It seems that I'm lucky then.

hmmm, I wonder if it's just the North American servers then? When I turn the game on, it's so bad now that I assume I probably wont get into a match. And even when I do, at least once a session, I get kicked out half way through with a "you've been signed out of the playstation network" error, even though I'm still signed in. The whole thing is very frustrating

Looks like they might have the server thing sorted out.

Also, I gotta say that I love steering the Valkyrie rocket around. I had an awesome kill and made a nifty little video of it

if you like God of War 3, Castlevania is worth picking up

Just finished Mafia II, it was flawed but still a pretty solid product. The story was great, it really immerses you into the era, and I really liked the combat, but there just wasn't that much to do. Glad I rented it, all in all.

Just want to say that Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is insanely good and GT5 is also real good except some flaws. But hey the driving experience in that game when u drive a tuned Nissan GT-R or a Ferrari 458 Italia outweighs all those flaws

If I hated the first Assassins Creed will I also hate the new one? I've never played part 2, because I really didn't like the first one, but the multiplayer seems interesting

I'm really looking forward to the new Assassin's Creed. I never played the first one but I loved the last one.

I said a few good things about AC2 when it was released, but after playing it again recently I found it deplorable - and Brotherhood seems to be pretty much the same with a few tweaks.

I'll go as far as to say that AC is easily the most overrated major franchise on the market and I hope Ubisoft don't disappoint in milking the hell out of it so people can get as sick of it as I have.

That's sort of what I figured. Oh well.
It just seems like they go for quantity over quality with regard to the gameplay; Massive worlds that are impossible to get immersed in because character graphics (everyone but the main character, anyway), animations, and controls are garbage and the AI is pretty weak.
I had such high hopes for the first one before it was released.
But hey, if some of you are enjoying it, thats awesome
