Yeah, the two-tone controller looks nice too. I wonder if any of them will show up on eBay.

I have 3 friends in this world. Everyone else is an acquaintance of varying degrees. And funny enough, none of my 3 friends use FB.
Well, I'm pleased to make your acquaintance.

I played the first one last month. It's good, but (and I can't believe I, of all people, am saying this) it got waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too longwinded at the end, and the much-vaunted story makes no sense whatsofuckingever.

And there doesn't seem to be much "importing" going on (it's mostly a few dialogues that mention what you did in game 1), and I'd say read a synopsis of game 1 then start with game 2.

Unless you have 60 or 80 hours to kill, in which case, play 1 first.
Hmm, I may have to do that since I haven't had much time to play lately but I'll see how it goes after I move. I do have a couple weeks of vacation left that I still need to use this year though so I could use some of that if I don't end up going somewhere.

I never tried the Uprising expansion for Red Alert 3.. was it any good? I skipped over it because I heard it didn't have the campaign co-op play (which was what really sold me on the RA3 core game).
I haven't played it either but the Metacritic scores for it are in the 60's (critic and user) so that's not good..

Playing Witcher 2 now, pretty cool so far.

Agreed, why didn't I jump on this earlier?!
Did y'all play the first Witcher as well? I got both but haven't gotten around to playing either yet.

I agree, but from Microsoft's perspective a Kinect game is an ironclad exclusive. Hence their attempts to push it as much as is humanly possible.
I understand that, but they need to understand that many people would prefer games that don't have Kinect features. I wonder what % of 360 owners even have a Kinect..

The whole "kinect" is optional change is them basically giving up on it. I don't think they can pull it from the boxes they intend to sell so their stuck with selling that $500 box, question is what do they need to throw into it to make people bite.
Bah, they got a few months to design new boxes! Take that junk out and sell a 'basic' version for $400.

That said, I do agree that there's nothing on it that I want to play right now, which is why I'm not going to get one at launch.
I kinda wish I had pre-ordered early to get one at launch so I could turn around and sell it for more on eBay but I waited and probably won't get one until December sometime..

As for games, I also pre-ordered the new Killzone game because I enjoyed 2 & 3 on the PS3 but other than that I'll just wait and see how reviews are.

While I like Sony and look forward to getting the PS4, I gotta say they really don't know how to give a good presentation. There are many awkward moments where the screen is blank and only sounds or music are playing.

What else do you do in the game? I mean it looks good but if it's just deathmatch against stompy mechs and grunts that'll get old pretty quick.
Yeah, it looks cool but I don't do MP-only games.. Maybe they'll have a SP campaign version of the game later.

I haven't bought the bundle, I have no problem with Origin, I'm just not interested in the games. I read on another forum that with the games in the bundle that are redeemable on Steam, you can right click the game in Steam, view CD key, and use that key to activate yet another Origin copy. Basically you get a Steam key and two Origin keys.
You don't even have to do that, when you buy the bundle it gives you the keys for both copies.

Too bad people don't wait till the first 50% off sale, that would send an amazing message.
That's what I usually do.. lot of times I wait for more than 50% off since I got so many other games to play still.

They removed jumping!?!? My fucking goodness!!!! I'm not being sarcastic here. They removed jumping in a game where you're playing a nimble thief!? What if I wanna jump onto a certain object from higher ground for tactical reasons? It's taken away from me.
They didn't remove it completely.. It will just be limited so that you can only jump when there's something to jump to so you don't fall off of a building.

Anyway, dunno why they didn't target this for closer to Halloween as it would be much more conducive to this genre. Still, hope it's good too. Simply love the title.
Well, if you wait until Halloween to buy it then it might be on Steam's Halloween sale..

Aaaaaaaand region locking is gone. So what is there left for Microsoft to backscrabble on? We're really running out of things here...
They still need to sell a $400 version without Kinect..

Most of them are on Steam, and for those, you get one key for each platform.
Yeah, but the two I want the most (DS3 and BF3) are only on Origin.

I still paid for the bundle anyways.. just wish Origin wasn't required to play those two.

Except for the first one the rest are silly or useless for myriad reasons. Or rather, the novelty of them would wear off in no time flat and people would want to disable them. Controller's are such shitty mechanisms to begin with anyway.
I think having certain sounds coming from the controller would be interesting.. but it would have to route through the speakers instead when using headphones.
