I can't wait for D3, last game I bought was D2 back when it first came out and I thrashed the shit out of it and I hope to do the same (if time allows me to) with D3.

lol.. yeah, I heard the ending is supposed to be so "emtionally" driven and shit.. like some sorta self-affirmation about the fragility of life and how it's supposed to change the very moral fiber of our lives or some shit..

Anyway, I've played a bit more of it as of late and while yeah, it still hasn't 'moved' me in any way, shape or form I will readily admit that the story dialog is pretty interesting and therefore did a good job of at least raising the level of urgency concerning the whole doomsday scenario and shit.. but overall, it just plays out like another Gears of War.. not that it's necessarily a bad thing but come on, you'd think that after the first two titles where that style of play is the norm that they would have varied up the battle scenarios a bit..

I loved Mass Effect 3. The writers and environmental artists on that project have knocked it out of the park creating the world you're in. I thought the ending was alright, but I can see how some of the details don't make sense to a lot of people.

Just got resident evil operation raccoon city and im disappointed as fuck. Single player is bullshit and the game just feels like a 2nd rate Gears of war clone. I guess this was made for online but even then it still isnt too much fun. I plan on returning this shit soon

Well, I went with my instinct to pick up a copy of the Silent Hill HD reissue (2 & 3) and I haven't had the chance to play it yet but I'm hoping the developers didn't botch it otherwise I am going to be one pissed motherfucker!

Mass Effect 3 was really good I thought. I just wish there would have been more closure, but I'm sure they have plenty of DLC to make me buy to get that.

WCW NWO world tour was awesome too. Looking back at it now it looks atrocious.

It was all about Goldeneye for 64, though.

The WWF games that followed in the same format were pretty sweet but lacked the charm of those earlier version.

Also... tagging on the top rope was leet. Me and a few friends used to do tag-team tournament parties with Revenge and we all lost our shit when a couple of guys who'd been practising a bit too hard hit me with that one to win a match. The rest of us had no idea it could be done before that. lol stupid kids in the days before internet was commonplace.

haha. One of my friends would purposely get knocked out of the ring in the 4 way, royal rumble mode just so he could stay outside and pull our feet from underneath us. Pure dick move.

I had a Sega Genesis, so I played this:



It had some dumb shit like stuff falling off the characters when they got damaged, but it was fast paced and heaps of fun.



Before that I played this, until the CD stopped working. I used to dominate as The Undertaker and Bam Bam Bigelow in the cage matches.

So I won a PS Vita in the Taco Bell contest. I picked up the new Uncharted game on it, awesome so far 3 chapters in. As good as the 3rd one for sure. Nothing will touch Uncharted 2 so I'm not expecting it to be anywhere near that good but..really fun so far.

It's pretty awesome imo, just needs games. It feels good in my hands and the analog sticks are sweet, it plays almost like a dualshock or 360 pad. The big OLED touch-screen is killer especially in the dark. Load times are quick.

All that is a wash tho if it doesn't get more good games. I've played Wipeout, Uncharted and Rayman. The rest don't interest me. I'd give it an 8.5 so far but that could go up or down in the future.

I'm not much of a handheld gamer so I couldn't tell you in comparison as the last handheld I played was a launch fat DS..but praise/complaints:

+Screen..absolutely gorgeous
-Thumbsticks are a taaaad too small/over-sensitive
+Good quality audio
-When you play you might find your thumbs often mute the speakers a bit
-Memory cards..proprietary format again. Sony needs to chill the fuck out with this.
-PS1 games bought on PSN don't work right now except via Remote Play. No reason for this as they do work on the first gen PSP.
+Cameras are decent quality
+FB/Twitter apps are as good as or better than the iOS/Android equivalents (no shit, this really caught me off guard)
-Browser doesn't support Flash or HTML5, also no Youtube
-Not digging the rear touch-panel on it. I feel like its a pointless gimmick when the front touchscreen works as well as it does.
In terms of looks I'd say its pretty stunning. It feels good in the hand in terms of weight. Be warned, it is a fingerprint magnet of course as its like 95% screen and the rest is black.
So far the only game experience on it that I couldn't get anywhere else is Uncharted Golden Abyss. I tried like 8 different demos and was left feeling really unimpressed. Once the software improves if I was you I would consider buying one, if I hadn't won it I doubt I ever would have bought one though.


tl;dr version: Its good but lacking. Not a lot of good stuff to play for now.

I agree with the sticks being just a bit too small, should've made them slightly bigger. I also find the back touch panel to be a gimmick but thankfully its not exactly mandatory.

Man, I am really getting sick and tired of this whole "motion" form of gaming that's become such a trend as of late (i.e. Kinect, wii-mote type fare, etc.) for not only is it a: embarrassing to see nerds making effete faggot-throwing-a-hairbrush poses while doing it, but b: makes them seem even more fucking hetero-ally challenged/androgynous than they already are in temperament.

Sorry, fuck the Wii and Kinect with a 4 ft wooden broomstick up their hardware ridden cunts!

(sorry, I'm fuckin' toasted.. )

this makes a lot of sense. Players are going to buy gold with real money no matter what and the companies that sell this gold only promote mindless farming, bots and a way of playing that should be kept out of MMOs.
