I got dragon age for christmas and just popped that in. Its like KOTOR but with dragons. Not too shabby. I'm not a huge RPG fan, so it's a little tough to get into the finer parts of playing and knowing where i should go and what to do and all the strategy. It has a really good story though so far and at a potential 150 hours+ with massive replay value, i'm not going to complain. It'll probably be a game that pops in and out between bouts of indiscriminate killing in MW2

Not sure if it's still true but I heard they were making the new Spider-Man game, considering the freedom of movement in that game, I can see it working.

Some deals are good, some are bargains and some you have no excuse not to buy: The brilliant Psychonauts by Tim Schafer is on sale on steam for 1. A POUND!
Buy it, buy it for your friends, buy it for people you don't even like.

Psychonauts is pure beauty. A great story, incredible ideas and all the beauty and frustration of good platforms (the kind of game that makes you play up to 4 am and then throw your gaming platform out of thge window)

It's a pity that Schafer (which is in my mind an artist, like all great game designers are) decided that PC are smelly so they dont get Brutal Legend. Motherfucker.

You know, I thought I'd like it. But I didn't. I loved the art style, but the action and such was just so bland, and the puzzles so frustrating, some of the fights so irritating, that I can't find a new home for the 360 version of it soon enough.

Anyone want to buy it off me??

The production values are very high, from the score to the Andy Serkis directed cut scenes (he also acts as the villain via mocap and seems to be channelling Alan Rickman in Prince of Thieves) and there's some pretty - if entirely linear - environments.

The combat isn't nearly as strong and does get repetitive but what kept me hooked was the well made cut scenes and quirky ideas like steering arrows/cannon balls/bodies after you launch them and throwing hundreds of enemies at you.

It's short but it's worth playing.
Heavenly Sword was AMAZING for the first 1/4

Then the cut scenes got all WTF and stupid, the story fell apart.

But the graphics were amazing, and the fighting wasn't BAD, but someo of the bosses felt cheap and incredibly unbalanced.

I got it on sale from Amazon last black friday and for the price, I wasn't disappointed.



NOW, however, I would like to make it clear to everyone that I will be MIA for eons, simply because Mass Effect 2 is out, and my life is finally full of awesome.

I loved the cut scenes! They were fantastically over the top and knowingly camp and well-directed to boot. I agree with you on the bosses though, urg.
