    Yeah it's pretty good if you're into that sort of thing.

    Anyone else into FIFA? I'm a footie game fiend and should get [10] on release day via Amazon. I've kind of put everything else on the back-burner, including Brutal Legend, as I'm way too busy and'll probably end up putting something like 300 hours into the game before I flip it next summer.

    I really want to get FIFA 10, but I don't have my PS3 here yet (no TV, either), so it'll probably be ahwile for me before I can.. Uncharted 2, also [​IMG] Dusty, in the high end of the game, all classes are essentially "the same," but the Royal is by far the easiest to start out with because his stats are the most customizable and you get this really convenient mana ring that will never lose its usefulness. If you've already dumped 7 hours into the wanderer I wouldn't give it up, if you like it. But if it is brutally frustrating, consider starting over as Royal because it will be easier.

    Oh my god, I just died by a) not being able to lock onto a guy I was directly facing because he was standing on a step and b) getting shot off of a slope by trying to step up on a platform that was about two inches tall (vally of defilement). Each of these cost me hundreds of souls. As much as I like the concept for this game, it is not well-programmed by any stretch of the imagination.

    It's pretty fun if you enjoyed the previous title. Not as hard, or as "fresh", it's essentially the same game with all the additions you expected (more blood, gore, tits, less story). One thing I disliked, not an issue though, is that there isn't a single massive overworld that connects everything like in the previous one.

    I thought Hamill did his best work for Joker in the game. I loved every word! Conroy on the other hand played Batman a little too calm and upbeat. His voice was not nearly as deep as it was for the cartoons. I like my voice acting either way. Really bad voice acting can be very entertaining, kind of like watching a soap opera. "Blood, hope this isn't....Chris's blood."
    On Arkham, great game - but a major plot hole. Spoilers in white: About 2/3 of the way through, Batman takes on two goons hopped up on Venom. When you beat them, you have to get across the bridge that joker destroyed. So what do you do? Call the BatJet!! And then what happens? It drops that (admittedly cool) zip-line tool. But why, for the love of god, if BatMan has a fucking jet, does he not just use that to get around Arkham? Instead of walking/flying/climbing, just take your goddamn jet and fuck Joker up! Seriously, a terrible deus ex machina.

    Is Arkham a must-play of any kind?

    I'd say it's one of the best this year.
