I love Peggle but I feel I can only own it so many times.

I haven't played it yet, but I thought one of the big updated for RE5 was that they were adding a dual-stick control option. Blasphemous rumor?

I'm not talking about runnin' and gunnin' for Resident Evil, but a simple sidestep, or maybe a dodge button would have been sufficient. Quick turn just turns me in the opposite direction. That arrow is still gonna hit me in the ass.
Like I said, it's only an issue when playing in professional mode and all enemies easily kill you with 1 hit. Nothing is more infuriating then having to start all the way back at a checkpoint because some enemy hits you (or your partner) with an arrow from across the map before you have a chance to see him.
If I had it my way, Resident Evil would still be a game with zombies that don't run and shoot guns at you, and it would have square and hexagon cranks galore.

I'd hate dual stick controls for Resident Evil, who knows, maybe it'll fit the reboot.

I would buy that!

Anyway i get what you mean about the controls issue... But i have to say that, while in the RE games the movements kinda got on my nerves, they actually improved the playing experience in a game like Dead space... Not being able to move easily when you heard a sudden noise made jump a LOT... But that was frustrating though.

But fuck me, if i had it my way, all games would be like "Sam and Max"

I got skate. from GameFly on Friday and put a handful of hours into it over the weekend. So far, I'm pretty impressed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that when you start out at the beginning, your skater is as good as he is ever going to be. You never upgrade your equipment or increase your stats- you just have to get better at the controls to beat the harder challenges. It's actually very satisfying when you nail some of the harder tricks.

Finished off GOW2 and CoD Modern Warfare yesterday.

What should I get next? Fallout 3 or World at War?

Word At War isn't worth a pimple on Modern Warfare's majestic ass. The multi isn't bad but the campaign mode is crap.

I enjoyed World at War's campaign... not as good as Modern Warfare, I'll agree with that, but I still enjoyed it. And then of course, the online multiplayer is tits.

I just finished up Resident Evil 5 this past weekend. I enjoyed it.
