The series has become a nice combination of RPG and 3rd person shooter and the Kinect voice controls are amazing. Finally yelling at my tv has a purpose.

Also waiting on I am Alive, that comes out at the end of March. That trailer though has me excited for what the game is gonna be all about.
The show is on of the best exclusives that always gets forgotten about. You getting I am Alive for PS3 or Xbox? It's crazy that game looks as good as it does and is only an arcade title, but I've already bought my code for it from work so when that comes out on the 7th I'll be ready.

Mass Effect 3 is amazing. Enough said. First midnight release I've been to in a while where the game actually surpassed expectations.

I thought the multiplayer was just gonna feel tacked on but its freaking fun as hell. Already got 12+ hours into the game via both multiplayer and the single player.

Hahaha pretty much minus the boners and talking like a retard. It's been truly amazing so far. The bar for game of the year is currently being set and it will take a lot to surpass it.

Isn't there nudity in it? That would justify the boner

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

i sold my 360 before i moved. madden 12 is the only madden i didn't buy since madden 02 on ps2. if my campaigns for work remain the similar, i'll be able to play video games while working. that would mean madden 12, then gta 5, and madden 13.

I just bought a copy of the original Resident Evil on E-Bay. Sucks that PSN only sells the dual shock version with the terrible replacement soundtrack. Either way I can't wait to take a trip down memory lane.

re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

Love Mass Effect 3, but I would advise anyone thats held out this long to not buy it until Bioware releases a new, more acceptable batch of endings. Luckily for us Bioware is the type of company that would do that for the fans but until that time comes it's best to make sure they know the fans are serious about this issue concerning the games ending.

Part of that is me asking friends such as yourselves to continue holding out on purchasing the game.

News: Mass Effect 3 ending petition raises $30K for charity in 24 hours - ComputerAndVideoGames.com

I donated a whopping $7 to the charity which is actually for a good cause, providing kids with terminal illnesses in hospitals a chance to play video games.

Retake Mass Effect 3

I know I'm in the minority on this, but I loved my ending to ME 3. Sure there are loop holes and it's tough to put a 100% loved ending to a trilogy that's spanned 6 years of expiriences. It really bothers me how much people are complaining about this, even some going so far as to file complaints with the FTC which is just straight up ridiculous. I know everyone's entitled to their opinion but some people are talking that entitlement to absurd levels. I've enjoyed my purchase but to each their own.

The ending itself might not have been bad in and of itself but they used it in the wrong game. Mass Effect is about creating your own experience and going up against impossible odds. So in theory if I wanted a feel good story my choices should have afforded me that opportunity, conversely if I wanted my story to end as a tragedy my choices should have allowed me to dictate as such.

Furthermore the developers stated time and time again that there would be true and significantly different multiple endings and that the choices the players made would have significant consequences on the final result (theres a whole list on the Bioware forum of quotes from the producers all of which turned out to be virtually outright lies). Turns out the players choices had no impact on the ending and the only real difference in the ending is the color of the explosion. Not to mention a lot of people were robbed of a final boss fight.

As for the FTC thing, sure it's going a little to far and hopefully nothing really comes of it but make no mistake the actual reasons cited, false advertising, are entirely valid.

So in short it's not that the ending is bad the problem is it serves as virtually the only ending in a game that prides itself on allowing the player to shape the story. The good news for you is even if they change the ending you'll still have the current ending that you enjoyed plus more reasons to play again.

Lol yeah the Guy who sent to me sent it with that same box

I actually bought Ps1 in 97 when they switched to CD cases so ironically this was the first time I ever had that type of box. I'm now thinking of buying a real ps1 so I can go back and play Final Fantasy with a gameshark
