Chaos Rings: Replayed it after a year, really polished, great soundtrack, great art, great combat system, great pace, and great story (Olgar one being my favorite), really, amazing game.
Zelda: TP: Replayed it for the 6th time, but with 3 hearts challenge, it is still, an amazing game, a true piece of art, still one of the greatest games of all time.

Gran Turismo 5: Almost a year later and I still can't stop playing it. Currently trying for gold in all the license tests, which is quite frustrating and rewarding at the same time.

Really? I thought those were so easy. I thought Polyphony was laughing at us, older GT's were so much harder. However overall I find GT5 an easy game. Just got to know which cars to use for the Extreme Series, and that's about it.

Well shit I need pointers then, cuz I'm always around 3-5 100ths of a second off the Gold time. I've got all the licenses which was easy, but getting gold on some of the challenges is driving me nuts. Maybe I have defective thumbs........

Yeah, really lol...many of the licenses were in no way easy to gold

Don't follow the lines they give you, they are terrible. Watch a video on youtube, and see the racing lines real pros use.

The best advice is try to exit every corner at the fastest speed possible. So turn in real wide, hit the apex, and as you hit the apex stomp on the gas. Also brake a bit later then the game tells you. E.G. For Trail Mountain, on the left turn after the straight with the trees. Stay far to the right, corner to the point where you almost touching the wall (keep getting closer and closer, don't be afraid to touch the wall, a light bump will do almost nothing) and full gas. If your not almost touching the other wall you did the corner too slow, or didn't do it wide enough.

I never had problems on this. The only difficult challenge in GT5 IMO is the AMG Racing Academy in the rain. Mainly because I hate nurburgring. That and Top Gear with the Lotus was hard because the AI are such idiots and brake in stupid places.

I also just picked up Alpha Protocol, Enchanted Arms,Need for Speed: Undercover and Gran Turismo 5. I'm looking forward to playing Alpha Protocol, I doubt I'll even touch the rest.

Did you pick it up for $2 on Steam?

Nope, bought a PS3 copy at retail for $8. Still a really good deal and I like physical copies so it's a steal. I've played the game for a few hours in the past and thought it was really good, especially for $2.



Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.

Infamous 2, great game a lot of improvements, longer game, a little repetitive sometimes.

Dead Island: Playing a little bit everyday and enjoy it very much. Only wish the facial expressions weren't so stiff.

League of Legends: Still ripping people open. Trying to main Riven to use her in ranked matches and DOminion is pretty cool, especially if you wanna play and got very limited time.

Yea, I never follow the racing line. I use it as a reference point for where not to start braking and where not to turn. I try to hit the apex of the turns and hit some of the edges to maintain the most speed coming out of a turn, but I can never seem to get my initial turns right. I'll try coming into them wider as you suggested. Thanks for the advice.

Yea if your not doing the turn as fast as you think you can, you are either not turning in wide enough, not hiting the apex, or plain just going to slow. Remember mid-engined ares are suppose to drift a bit, that's why they corner better. By putting the rear end of the car in a mild 5 -10 degree drift, your car is pointing directly to where you want to be turning, and as a result the power put down by the engine is more efficiently used.

Another tip is in multi-turn zig-zag sections, keep your car as straight as possible. Again turn in the first turn wide (trust me, you need to go wider then you might initially expect), and then floor it as early as possible. The straighter the line, the earlier you can floor it.

Gears 3--Mana from heaven. Haven't taken on the Horde, yet but playing campaign with 4 people jumping in and out, fighting for high scores is way more fun than I imagined.

When I'm not playing that, I'm playing Resident Evil 4 HD. Game still looks great and is a lot of fun. It aged very well. At the time, many sites were calling it one of the best games ever made. The fact that it's still so awesome, so many years and later makes me believe they were right. Control could be better, though.

Bastion: I went a little download crazy last week, I guess. It hasn't hooked me yet but I only played about 20 minutes of it.

On the 3DS side, I'm playing RE Mercenaries 3D. So addictive yet so simple. It could have done a lot of things better but I'm enjoying it. It's got a Call of Duty vibe to it that I enjoy.


I pr-ordered Gears from Gamestop before buying it from Wal-Mart. I gotta go get my $65 back. But do I want the money or more games? I could probably get Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Vanquish, Castlevania Lords of Shadow, Spider-Man, or Dead Space 2 (If I play my cards right, I can get 3-5 games today). But will I have time to play them? Should I just let it roll over to Batman Arkham City or Uncharted 3?

Have you given thought towards putting that Gamestop credit towards Rage?

Heck no!  I'm not a big FPS fan.  Not a big fan of FP games, in general, to be honest.  I can stomach Call of Duty, Metroid Prime, and Halo and that's about it (even though I have a ton of other first person games).  I like to see character animations and choreography.  It looks like it's going to be a good game but it's not my style.

Fallout, Oblivion, Battlefield, Bioshock, Condemned, Killzone--no amount of quality can make me love these games (even though I own or have owned quite a few of them).



Fallout & Oblivion are both playable in a 3rd person perspective.

Tony Hawk 8, Blood Drive, Burnout Crash, crazy Japanese games...
Yes, I like cheap games that lack realism. I miss the days when people played games for hundreds of hours because of the simple fun of a single level and local multiplayer.
I like games and will be a happy gamer until the realism and entertainment wave covers everything.
