Bioshock: Infinite looks like the best thing fucking ever. The original was an extremely flawed but often brilliant creation.

Also bastard, I played the shit out of the Blur demo but never bought it. Wish I, and many more people had, since it seems like a fun time, and its poor sales lead to the sad closure of Bizarre Creations studios. Lots of great talent gone to waste.

I've been replaying Bioshock, holds up well. Probably the best intro to any FPS.

Should really buy Blur too, the demo was heaps of fun. I wasn't aware that the devs had closed shop, I know the Split/Second guys had though. Real shame, terrible for them to be released around the same time.

Yep, this. Finished it a few days ago on Good karma and loved it. Definitely prefer it over the original, which was already good - one of my fav games of the year so far for sure.

Yeah that's good to hear. I'd probably pick up the sequel some time once it goes down in price.

I haven't picked up any NCAA football games this gen, but most reviews seem to be saying this is probably the best one. The only negative comments seem to be that it's not a huge upgrade since the last one, but since I didn't play that one, shouldn't be an issue.

If you get it, let me know. I'll definitely get it at that point and we can play against one another instead of getting utterly destroyed by some 11 year old kid from Alabama.

Amazon seems to have a $20 credit if you order it today as it still counts as a "pre-order"....

I'll probably be playing as BYU, and this be destroyed by everyone, regardless of age. I typically never even dare attempt to play random people online in sports games.

I will definitely pick up NCAA '12 closer to when the season starts. Also, any NBA 2k fans in here?

Amazon's having some sort of "buy 2, get 1 free" deal going right now on select titles (mostly old-ish ones, but still a good deal for anyone interested):

Video Games: Buy Two, Get One Free

I've been playing Dead Nation which I got for free thanks to Sony's gross negligence...

The story is terribly generic and the game mechanics are basic but it's pretty fun none the less.

It's a $10 downloadable game, there really isn't even supposed to be a story. Game is awesome.

Oh I agree, I wasn't expecting much to begin with and a free game is a free game
