We're all knights, people. Knights of the Bro Republic.

I predict that I finish Far Cry 3 by Sunday evening. What then? I don't know, and neither do you.

Of course, the generation after that could lead to the shutdown of the previous system's servers, meaning you won't be able to play the system anymore, as every game requires an internet connection. That possibility is extremely baffling and a major turnoff.
I think I saw an article a while back that basically the costs of a gaming PC versus Console gaming isn't actually that different. I am talking about lifetime costs and having a decent setup for your console to use all it's features such as a tv that can display HD. If you factor in that the games on consoles are anywhere from 10 to 20 quid dearer, over time the PC isn't that much more expensive. The need to upgrade all the time has also massively slowed, as people are still playing the latest games on quite old hardware.

I think if Valve do release the Steambox things could be interesting. An affordable modular PC for the living room that does everything could be the way to go.

Ya, the used games thing is bullshit. They can't just decide "well, you're paying for a license for the game". No I'm fucking not. They already don't let you download it from the disc to the system; that makes sense. Now they're just getting greedy.

I still refuse to buy used games from gamestop though. Oh, you dropped it a whole $5 because it's used and are double dipping? Eat shit
I agree with all of this, I don't buy my games used so that doesn't bother me so much but I do borrow games from friends quite often so I can decide whether I want to buy them or not. The fact that you wont even be able to lend games to someone else sucks balls.

Know what I wish they would make? A game like Battlefield 3, except Star Wars themed. I want to pilot an AT-AT through Hoth.

I chose the "good" ending but just watched the "bad" one. Yikes.


Not sure what to play next. Might take a break and wait for Gears.

Ever played Battlefront? I played Battlefront 2 a lot with one of my friends. We would spend the whole afternoon taking over the universe. Good times.

Yeah, a new Star Wars FPS would be really cool.

Never played Battlefront. Was that more of a strategy game?

That's the one I'm leaning toward.
I used to love Maniac Mansion when I was a kid, so The Cave interested me.
And Mechinarium just looks so cool
