I know you guys are stoked for Modern Warfare 2, but they've already got Modern Warfare 3 in the works, and it looks SOOOOOO realisitic!

Dear lord...MW2 is the bomb. Picked up my copy this morning and had a chance to play a bit before work.

Well...after a long night of playing this game...and now some serious red eyes from lack of sleep...I have to say that this game is worth the purchase. A very intense single player campaing...a whole lot of fun for multiplayer as well. This game is going to break some records.

I want to follow up and mention that Borderlands(PC version) is sweet. Best marriage of RPG and FPS I have ever played.

I picked up Batman: Arkham Asylum used, and it's definitely a good game...very similar to the Assassin's Creed kind of feel, but more polished, IMO. The voice acting in it is great too, Mark Hamill's best performance since Guyver. :lol: Still playing HL2 as well. Its tough to play a game like Arkham Asylum after HL2...in HL2, you can interact with just about everything, in Arkham, only the stuff that glows suspiciously. What do you mean you can't jump over that desk, I thought you were the goddamned Batman!?

Modern Warfare 2 is really great...I'm about halfway through the campaign I believe but have been playing online a bunch, I'm still adjusting to FPS with a controller rather than mouse+keyboard.

I haven't tried it yet, but some of my friends are playing Torchlight. It is a $20 download that is supposedly somewhat like the original Diablo.

I was reading about that today, PC only I believe. Some of the guys/gals from the Diablo team were involved in making Torchlight.

If you have STEAM you can download the demo or you can get the demo from their site.

http://www.torchlightgame.com/

I did and the only reason "I am not playing now is because I am focused on Borderlands. I you like the clicky addiction of Diablo you will like Torchlight. For 20$ its a great deal.

I have been playing single only because all my gamer friends grew up and I refuse. I am on STEAM as sKurm and if anyone wants to hit me up feel free. I have heard the multi blows the single player out of the water.

hey anyone here play Dragon Age on both a console and the PC? If so can you compare how much harder it is to control things on the console over the PC.

the control is easy on console, its really similar to KOTOR,Mass Effect and their other games if you've played any. the thing is its an entirely different system on the PC (PC is a higher view and lets you control all 4 characters in a more fluid way, the console is a third person view and you freeze time and manually switch and control your characters) for what its worth the PC version was rated higher by most critics for better graphics and control scheme but i have the console version and have zero complaints, its one of the best games ive played in years

sweet, that is good to know. I've played Mass Effect on the 360 but I only played KoToR on the PC. Think I'm going to have to pick it up soon.

Dragon Age seems to have passed the Yahtzee test, so it's GOTTA be a good game.
