FFXIII. Just got the game and it is pretty cool I guess. Don't really see what the whole big deal was about it.

Finally got hold of War for Cybertron, the three-player co-op is just rocking--even if I did have to battle like a lion to ensure that I got to play as Skywarp.

Yeah 360.
I'm always down for shooting contrary giant robots in the face with like-minded giant robots so if you want to "holla at your boy" as they say, then hit me up. Gamer tag is in my sig---I think.

News From the Front: (A.K.A. My Rise of Nations game)

Today the North Koreans were defeated in the Inchon Offensive bringing the whole peninsula under the glorious banner of capitalism.
Operation Bay of Pigs went off stunningly stamping out communism in Cuba.
The police action taken in Mexico now has a more receptive government.
The Vietcong were crushed in a mighty U.S. offensive bringing the dominoes to a standstill.
The Soviets disarmed the remainder of their nuclear arsenal.

The brave boys of the army marched into India today to take it back from Soviet control. We're at war with Ivan.

I rented Blazeblue today, poped it in for about half an hour and loved every minute. Now I really like fighting games, but Capcom vs is probably my favorite series. However the music just makes this game so good I have a hard time putting it down ;D

If the Capcom series was Capcom vs everyone and it had this kind of music it would reach a level of perfection unachievable by any other game

I swear...Valve may be the best. company. ever.

What other Company would hand out not one, but TWO free copies of one of their games because of an error they made?..o-o..Valve is awesome. o3o

Also! More interesting news in gaming:

You got Donkey kong on this thing?

So yeah..apparently a boy's DSI XL was dropped into the Gorilla pit/cage..whatever...and well..the gorillas tried to play it! :D

Also..I'm playing Plants Vs Zombies now..

And, speaking of said game...

One of the best distractions to use on a prison guard turns out to be PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies.

That's right..Plants vs Zombies caused a Prison break. :D

Gave Alpha Protocol a second try... glad that I did :) Sure, it's a bitch to play until you level up a few times, but it's the only game I've ever played where I felt like I had REAL choices! Enough so that I wanna replay. The games a freaking spider web of story paths, instead of a linear campaign with a few black and white moral dilemmas.

And Steven Heck is AWESOME!

Welcome to the camp Sabby, a lot of people thought AP was a horrible game till they started playing it. It gets really good about the time you finish off your first global mission (Taipei, Moscow, or Rome). I love the game and have thus far replayed it probably 6 or 7 times

Although, Wolfy's right. Where have you been man?

Well wolfy if you really like RPGs and like mass effect style cover systems, even more so if you like spy/undercover covert ops type games  then yes Alpha protocol is a great game. You can play just about any style throughout the game from a pistol wielding stealthy martial artist to a tech savvy shotgun wielding run and gun nut. Everything is workable once you get skills up high enough

If you're on the fence about getting it, rent it first and try it out everyone I know who did that has ended up buying the game later

I think people were disappointed by Alpha Protocol mainly because they were expecting it to be something closer to Mass Effect. AP plays more like a typical RPG. Once I got over that, it was a great game. A lot better than some games I could name, that still did way better in reviews and such. Damn you, critics!

It's no Mass Effect, though. Best. Game. Ever.

Hmm... Lately I've been rocking Ghandi's world on Civ IV, a friend just introduced me to something called League of Legends, I've recently re-discovered my love of Supreme Commander, and as always The Sims are there, waiting for when I need... fewer explosions.

Ill be getting Front mission as well. Its one of the few Sqauresoft series that has stayed consistantly good (well ok I didnt play the 5th one cause I cant find a copy). Plus I love the tactical battle system of the game. That said, Im not sure how Ill view this new game which is supposed to be more cover system but Im expecting lots of giant robot smashing gun shooting wanzer blowing up fun!
