I play every game at the highest level and I judge it based upon that.

If you read my complaints on COD: Black Ops, it's because it was 'too hard'.

Well, it wasn't actually too hard, just too stupid. Most of the other COD games pose a challenge on Veteran. Treyarch's idea of a challenge though is an endless spawn of enemies at an endlessly high rate who are willing to commit suicide in order to not let you pass.

I will not be getting this, but it looks pretty cool.



Bethesda Blog

And there's almost as much complaining about that as there is about the Achtung Baby special editions.

So $90 for an art book, mediocre dragon statue, and a cloth map? Yeah, makes the U2 stuff seem not so bad.

I started playing New Vegas briefly again yesterday afternoon for an hour or so. Was having fun, then the game froze. Good to see they fixed all the bugs...

^ It's actually $149.99 in US dollars. I would kind of like to have the book, but I don't need the other stuff.

They have (or had) a special deal where you get that same map if you preorder the regular version of the game.

I hate pre-ordering! I'm a poor college student, don't they know this?!

Or is it one of those pay $5 to pre-order your copy kinda deals?

Here's where I saw it a while back:

Bethesda Blog

I don't know if it matters where you preorder it. I'm not going to do it, because I'm just going to ask for it for Christmas. That way, I don't have to pay for it and they'll hopefully have some patches available by then for all the bugs it will have.

Skyrim


Which reminds me. I finally did get to play Oblivion. For someone whose last real experiences in this universe were with Daggerfall, this is pretty much the greatest game of all time. In general, I love it, and am glad to have it. So very glad .

Haha, that's awesome.

I share the same sentiments. Fallout 3 cmae close, but Oblivion wins in the end!

Oh and for what it's worth... it's a whole new game engine. That means one or two things. One is that they're getting rid of a lot of the problems from the previous engine (such as when you pick something up everything scatters across the room).

But the other thing that means is a whole new book of bugs, I guess. Lets hope this time round they've done a swell job at making the game engine relatively bug proof.

Glad you liked it (have you finished the first two as well?) - the GOW series is one of my favourites, so I absolutely had to play GOW3 on hard/Titan the first time I played it, and enjoyed it immensely - I still rate the second as the best in the series overall, however. Can't wait for the PSP collection to be released later this year.

I've been reading that Tom Bissel book, the chap who wrote the LA Noire article LMP posted a while back. I'll give my thoughts later (I haven't finished it yet), but I just read a chapter that praised various parts of Far Cry 2. Not sure if anyone played it when it was more recent - must be about three years or so old now, but since it must be cheap as all hell now, I think it'll be my next purchase. That and/or Blur, Darksiders or Alpha Protocol - there's a few older, cheaper titles that I need to gorge on.
