    Also considering Fallout 3.


    Fallout 3 is awesome. I have no previous interest in the Fallout series, or Oblivion, and yet that's the only way I can really describe it. Fallout 3 is a fun good game, worth the money, probably better for the PC than a console because of all the crazy mods, but I played it on the 360 and I'm very happy with it. I hated Morrowind and know enough about Oblivion ot realize that Fallout 3 is essentially Oblivion + guns, but man I really hate Morrowind... but I love Fallout 3, if that helps.

    I'm breaking from Lel and heartily endorsing Fallout 1 and 2. I love Fallout 3, too.

    Not hating on Fallout 1 or 2 at all, just saying I haven't played them so I'm not biased towards the series (though I have heard enough hype to understand that I probably should get around to playing it).

    hey it works and the last time I checked the object was to kill people. [​IMG]

    I swear I spend a good part of every round in Downpour near those silos and that wall with a hole in it. Map's so sweet...

    Man MW2 needs to come out. [​IMG]

    I need a real chunky blockbuster for the holiday season so as it not feel excluded. Last year I chose Fable II, not sure what I want this year...

    Dragon Age: Origins looks great for a real old-school RPG. MW 2 is out of the question, ugh. Borderlands looks like it could finally be Gearbox's breakout and I love the aesthetic and weapon system, even if some of the character models are pretty dopey. Also on the fence about Brutal Legend (I adore Schafer but... I'm not sold on this until I read some reviews; just don't have a good feeling, hope I'm wrong). Uncharted 2 looks... pretty. The last one was a 'fine' game, it just felt flat (Tomb Raider 3.0).

    So yeah, throw stuff out there for me. Any blockbuster coming out between now and December. Only games that're off-limits are stuff I can't stand like the new Halo side-story, CoD, Tekken, etc. Any genre is fine.

    What Plattform?

    I've picked up Batman Arkham Asylum because everyone said it's great, expecting to think myself that it's crap. What a surprise! It is really entertaining and should at least be enough for a weekend. It's also nice if you're not into Batman (I have no clue about the comics), it explains all the stuff.

    Fallout 3.

    Also, more Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 news with some specific info on new perks, abilities, etc.

    What can I say? Fucking awesome.

    Probably my favorite gaming series of all time.

    I hope they re-make DMC1&3 on Blu-ray w/ updated graphics. The combat system in 3 is more deep than 99% of the fighting games released today.

    Have you seen any of the True Style vids on youtube. Man the shit you could do on 3 was insane. Although I like 1 the best. It was one of the first PS2 games I had and it stuck with me.
