I heard that the printed strategy guides are either a) written by the same people on GameFAQS or b) ripped from GameFAQS. Either way, buying one is outmoded.

Mega props to the developers to for creating such a unique game though. I like it when they try.

Why does GH:WT and Rock Band 2 have to be so God damned expensive?! I CAN'T AFFORD IT!
I have never owned a Guitar Hero game because I have to buy a big expensive peripheral to play it. I did come close to buying that giant robot game with the cockpit though, because it was A GIANT ROBOT GAME WITH A COCKPIT!

Bethesda game guides are written by the game makers and are huge and full of information.

My computer is far away, and I hate dealing with paper prints.

The strategy guide is worth it in this specific instance.

This game has really made me want to discover and accomplish everything.

Otherwise I would completely agree.

Steel Battalion? A friend of mine had that because he's a huge gamer freak. That thing is monstrous! The best part about it is that there's a red button covered by glass that you need to open up and press in order to eject. The worst part about that game is that it plays mega-realistically. If you ever need to eject, you lose your mech forever. If you try to just turn off the console to avoid death, you lose your save. (or something like that)

That's the one! I wanted that game so fucking much. They were going to make a multiplayer online sequel but it never came out.

Girl -ugly +game store +buying games = geekgasm.

C'mon now, Elle - You know well enough that a mediocre looking woman buying games would get deedledees from gamer guys, but someone who is attractive?

I think you might have made their heads asplode.

Just imagine what was on THEIR minds when they went home. Alone. To their bedroom. In their parent's house. And they're 30.

SO

Anyway - Gears 2! Teh Awesome. Horde mode FTW!

You should see what happens when you take a hottie into a (bad) comic book store. Actually, I take it back, no-one should see that.
