I really need to play this game.

Atto Suggests...:

Book - Malazan Book of the Fallen series 

Game - Metro Last Light

TV - Deadwood

Music - Schoolboy Q (try Studio or Man of the Year)

Both IGN and Gamespot! The two giants, eh

Gotta play through it again soon.

Huge props to Journey. As a musician, I really love the soundtrack. The music does a superb job at catching the moment. The cello... O_O sounds so good.

Seems like every GOTY award is going to either Journey or The Walking Dead, I'm not complaining but Dishonored needs some love too.

Had a bet with eFKac on whether or not Valve will be at Sony's E3: I lost.

15 bucks downloadable games winning overall GOTYs just show how weak this year was.

It is an amazing game but I honestly have to agree a bit.

Last year we had like so many games up to that quality. This year really lacked and nearly every sequel really disappointed peers in one way or the other.

Next Year The Last of Us will probably dominate and GOW:A will get overshadowed by its awesomeness
