TRZA, let's be nice and shit. Try and find some common ground. Which upcoming games are moistening your gusset? Have you seen the Far Cry 3 thread? Up your alley?

tbf RE4 would be in my top 10 games. i had it on ps2. but when it came out on wii, that shit was revelatory. and even though the haters hated, i really liked RE5.

as for games coming up. gta5 and halo4. i dunno. i still havent played me3 and a whole bunch of games. so i'm not that amped for anything tbh. maybe get a ps3 and play the uncharted games. or get a decent pc and play shit like shogun and starcraft

haha every time i go into JB HiFi and look at the Starcraft i want to buy, hjust got a brand new laptop so can finally... but the whole idea of playing a game as best i possibly can and still being completely useless isn't really appealing to my competitive side.

Started back on Magic the gathering though, pretty fun unlocking some new decks and shit, not really too much that interests me on XBOX at the mo besides Final Fantasy HD (soon) and the Silent Hill collection which can wait for teh price drop.

PC imo so we can play Diablo3 co-opers.

On RE5, I think it was awesome in co-op, especially when you're stoned, but it was frustrating as a single player game.

Is the Mass Effect 3 From Ashes DLC worth getting for M$800? It comes with the Collector's Edition or can be purchased separately.

Oh wait this scares me. http://www.gamestooge.com/2012/03/07...to-ea-servers/

"Once again, Electronic Arts hasn’t learned from Dragon Age: Origins, or, more likely, it just doesn’t care. If the EA Servers are for whatever reason inaccessible, you can’t access your downloadable Mass Effect 3 content – and if you have a save game with that DLC in it, screw you. You’re not entitled to it despite being a legit customer.

And God forbid the EA Servers go down. Because of THEIR screwup, you won’t be allowed access to your own content.

Keep treating people like criminals, Electronic Arts, because the pirates don’t care. THEY get to play to their hearts content while legit, PAYING customers get treated like pirates."

Forza 4. Always Forza 4. Must complete event list (80%) before Porsche Pack comes out in 24 days.

Looking forward to

online? ... that reminds me, i still haven't finished it. I'm at the queen (which i assume is the end) but haven't been able to kill her.

Is Forza a 'jump in and have fun' game or a 'spend 30min tweeking the car for 5min of driving' game?

I used to love the dirt series until they made drifting a part of it which i suck at.

Yeah playing online, GOW3 is fucking great multiplayer. I would say you can jump in and have fun with Forza 3, the assists/difficulty settings make it quite scalable, so you can fiddle with your car as much or as little as you want.

Yea Forza is sweet for quick fun, they added in the auto-tune so you can just optimize a car for most races automatically which is great if you aren't into the tuning aspect.

Until you get into those rediculous 1/4 mile challenges almost every race in the game is fun and easy enough without spending time tweaking your car.

Still re-playing through RE4 and Trials HD.

I know we've been through this, but fuck me I forgot how righteous RE4 is. If capcom had bothered to move into the new century and let their character run AND shoot and strafe all at the same time (and turn down the volume on the obligitory OTT villans) gmae would be perfect.

I'm over SSX. Don't even know if I want to check out the upcoming DLC...

Falling down pitfalls is getting old quickly. And no, I will not rewind because that ruins every chance of having the best possible score for the drop then wouldn't it? Fuckin' geniuses @ EA.

Yeah, you know what...I don't think I can be fucked even loading it again. See how I feel later, if the mood strikes me I'll pop it in. If not...will trade tomorrow and put it towards Darkness 2. I'm really in the mood for ripping mooks apart with tentacles voiced by Mike Patton.

Anyone remember Populous? I spent almost an entire acid trip (probably only 30m in reality, time sort of becomes fluid) playing that game. It was the ultimate tripper game at the time.

wicked, just found it on GOG

Shaddow of the colossus HD remake (ps3), Rez (xbla), Flow (psn) + psytrance for audio, and for some reason the newer zen pinball game (xbla, its second in the series with all the marvel tables) Have all been epic on trips for friends & I.



Flow & psy was probably the best for us .. hard to describe how well it goes with a very bent mindstate.
