    Done with BF3, back to BC2

    And I would really like a BC3 announcement Not trying to start a BF3 bitchfest, tho I'll gladly participate if one starts. I was just curious if anybody had picked Bad Company 2 back up on the console after getting tired of BF3? My online friends group has. Earlier this week we loaded it...

    What's up with Kotaku and their preachy articles lately?

    TL;DR - scroll to the bottom First off: I'm not a huge fan of Kotaku in the first place (yes, they're idiots as it regards PC gaming, I know. I KNOW), but I do peruse it regularly enough to notice a sort-of trend being established over there. It seemed to start with Duke Nukem and the...

    Catherine impressions (360/PS3)

    TL;DR at the bottom Did anybody here try out Catherine? I picked it up through Gamefly, mostly as an experiment, and because I wanted to play something completely different from what I've been playing lately. I finished it last night, and I'm not sure if I feel punished or rewarded for my...

    Duke Nukem Forever - I hated it more than Homefront

    Alternate Thread Title: "Randy Pitchfords' greasy hamburger totally gave me the SHITS" TL;DR version - The last third of this game contained some of the worst level design and objectives ever to be included in any game ever. I've almost never been more disappointed. I purchased DNF at...

    Homefront is...

    A gigantic pile of dogshit, in my opinion. This is a huge long bitch thread, yes, but I just beat the game in 4 hours and immediately put it back in the Gamefly envelope. Got it today, it goes back tomorrow. I almost quit playing it halfway through the first level, but I pushed on, just so I...

    Game Difficulty - What's [Hard] to you?

    Reading another thread, I became curious: What do we define as difficulty in games? What's YOUR benchmark for a "Hard" difficulty? Where's the breakdown between bullshit, and good old ball busting till you get better at it? A lot of folks bitch about difficulty in games lately. "Games are too...

    anybody playing split/second?

    I got it from gamefly, played through a few seasons and tried the online portion out. While I think the game designers are insane in a good way, as it pertains to the different race events they laid out in SP, the MP sorta left me disgruntled. There is no lobby so to speak, and I don't know if...

    Army of Two - The 40th day: crap crap crap

    I never saw much about this game on the forums here, but last weekend I finished it with a friend of mine and I had some thoughts that are just burning to come out. Here's a disclaimer: potential spoilers ahead, and I have very little positive to say about the game. TL;DR version - I think...

    Modern Warfare 2 + party chat lock out = The Suck

    Dear Infinity Ward, As a constant purveyor of the Xbox Live party chat system, I'd just like to say "thank you" for locking that feature out in most of the game types I like to play. Now I can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the game the way you intended I play it, all the while being forced...

    Has anybody here had any experience with the Shuttle Sd31p and dropping a quad core into it? I've googled and can't seem to find any answers.

    360: BC broken after transferring 20gb to 120gb with kit

    Like the title says, a few months ago I used my HDD transfer kit to move all my data over to my new 120gb HDD for my 360. Everything works great, sans the fact that now every Xbox game that I used to play on my 360 tells me it's not able to be played. Has anybody else experienced this issue...

    Compare Fallout 3 to Mass Effect for me

    Here's my deal. Right now I'm playing Fallout 3 on my 360. I'm enjoying almost everything about it. I'd give it a 90% if you want an idea numerically. I generally like RPG's but this is the first one that's really hooked me in quite some time, the kind of hooked where you want to explore every...

    RE5 Demo - I hate it.

    Title pretty much sums it up. I understand that the controls in these games have always sucked, but in 2009, I just can't tolerate the reasoning behind hindering a game like this with those 'old guard' controls after so many other games have done them right, and continue the trend. Even though...

    GTX280 won't fit? after market cooler, 4870, or 4870x2?

    So I've stepped up, I now have this gtx280, and nothing on Gods green earth is going to fit it into the shuttle in my Sig, so now what? The length of the card is fine, but because of Nvidia's decision to engulf the entire card in plastic it makes contact with the ATX 4-pin connector. So I need...

    X-Com pack on Steam
