The problem I had with Twilight Princess was that the developers felt awfully lazy; structurally they were just sitting on series tropes and mashing together things they knew had worked well before. I am ever so slightly encouraged by talk from Aonuma that in Skyward Sword they're requestioning how discrete dungeons should be from the rest of the world (a reassessment LONG overdue), but I see the gameplay videos and trailers and can't shake the sensation that even after 5 years to do whatever they wanted, it's still just a new coat of paint. And the graphics are starting to look hilariously out of date. Compare to the dragon fight at the end of this video:

YouTube - ‪Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - E3 2011: IGN Live Commentary‬‏

That's really exciting to me. To be fair, I haven't played Morrowind or Oblivion so the gameplay is doubleplusfresh, but to be even more fair, I was stuck with a Gamecube earlier this decade.

Just replayed the last chapter of Portal 2 for the hell of it. The best ever.

Also, Infamous is fairly enjoyable. Being an evil dick is fun, but I can't really see myself loving the game until I unlock most of the powers and actually feel like I have some real momentum and strength.

Yeah, Infamous gets more and more enjoyable the powers you open. So many things you can do, which is awesome. I'm pretty close to the end, and have my copy of 2 sitting at home waiting for me to finish. My friends who have the sequel are loving it so far, drastically better graphics and many more powers. Should be fun.

I think I'm gonna get this : inFamous 2 Game Good Pack with Transparent Blue Dualshock 3 Controller PS3 - ozgameshop.com

That is the price of the game brand new on its own over here. So basically I'd be getting a controller for free.

This side-by-side of YouTube trailer visitor data sums up how I thought the Cod and Battlefield communities break down. Turns out I was right

I'm digging Noire again. Been a rollercoaster for me, even though the game itself couldn't be less of a rollercoaster.

I'm just flighty that way.

Still glad I played this mambo jambo in B&W.

Who would have ever thought Prey 2 would be one of the most talked about games of the show?! I almost wish they'd either take the 2 out and give it a subtitle, or completely remove it from the Prey universe, as it doesn't even look close to the same type of game (and I never even played the first, just watched one of my friends play it for a hour or two).

Did you pick it up? I'm have a blast with it! Probably the most enjoyable game I've played this year, tons of fun.

Pretty sweet. I haven't played this freaking game since the week it came out for some reason. The minute or so of jokes about the game on South Park was pretty funny.

Gotta wait till pay day (22nd) will order it then, and hopefully finish off the first one. I've heard only good things about no.2 though

I will be all over L.A. Noire once I can pick it up new or used for 30$ or under.

It's $40 on Amazon right now, brand new. Gold Box Deal of the day. In the US at least.

bono_man, sounds like we did the same thing. I hurried and finished up the first Infamous, and went straight into 2. I think you'll have a blast with 2, it's a lot of fun. I liked the first quite a bit, but having considerably more fun with 2.

Guess what's on its way to my house.

 
It's a new (used) PS3. Dear God, I hope this one doesn't die in a month
