j, you have PS3 right? Download the beta for MAG and see if you like it (beta is free). It's very teamplay oriented, and I read that it's really good.

Anyone playing Darksiders? can't decide if I want to pick it up or not.

Love Darksiders......reminds me of Zelda in a strange way but I was a huge zelda fanboy.....I can picture the golden cartridge behind the Toys R Us plexi right now.....oh the memories

+1 on AC 2 being awwwesome and >> than AC1. I played AC1 and really liked it despite all of its short comings, but AC2 is a whole 'nother level.

My copy of Mass Effect 2 (collector's edition!) came in yesterday and I played it for the first time. Holy crap it is awesome. I miss the deeper rpg elements Bioware had in their games from 5 years ago but I can forgive them because they've kept the in-game Codex and the planetary exploration is relaxing, almost therapeutic.

So far, ME vs ME2:

+ No inventory! Well you still get a quasi-inventory of alternate weapon selections, armor customization and your medi-gel (now required for using the Unity power) but this is a huge plus for me since I hated ME's inventory, which sucked even on the PC.

+ No Mako! That thing was total crap and made planetary exploration even more of a hassle than it should have been.

+ Better graphics! Better animations!

+ The sound on the PC version doesn't suck and isn't buggy!

+ Shepard is even more bad-ass, even as a Paragon!

I could throw out some negatives but I'd just be nit-picking. Great game.

I pre-ordered Battlefield Bad Company 2 for PC through Steam and have access to the Beta testing. There are some bugs but that's to be expected from a Beta, but overall it's a lot of fun. Spent 4 hours last night and jumped up 6 ranks! I think I'm addicted...

Is the mass effect series similar to Fallout 3 in gameplay, exploration and development? I really didn't like fallout 3 that much.

^^ Speaking of which, Fallout: Las Vegas teased today; releasing in fall 2010. I won't be going there again.

Oendan is my favorite DS game ever, but I lost it a few years ago. Hoping to find another copy (or the sequel) used for dirt cheap, no luck so far.

Not even close.

Fallout is a single contiguous world with no boundaries; ME and ME2 are directed and heavily scripted. As a result, you have less freedom but more cinematic scope.

Fallout is def. the better RPG; Mass Effect is more like a really cool sci-fi movie; however there are some really strong character interactions with some really neat NPCs.

I'm flabbergasted when people say they didn't like Fallout 3. It was so close to my ideal video game.

my roommate and I beat the new super mario bros on wii this weekend on 2 player co-op play. Pretty fun i guess.

And I bought a DS hack card... screw buying these games

+1 on that one. Although I will say that I had to take a break from games of such depth and personal involvement after deciding to finish Fallout 3. Needed something mindless and fast; luckily Modern Warfare 2 came out Just as I finished so I'm now hooked on the multiplayer.

I've been thinking about getting Civilization Revolution for PS3. Anyone played it? opinions?

I enjoyed Fallout but I can certainly see somebody not liking it or that style of game. It requires a large time commitment to get the full value, eventually all quests become repetitive despite varied story threads, item management can feel like a chore, VATS was stupid, etc. Plus some people prefer a more linear, goal-oriented experience.
