    Really? All those shit games you've slogged through to get 8573489572987 chievo points and Mass Effect wasn't in there anywhere? What's stopping you?
    Yeah. I own the game too. Guapo bought it for me. Basically I just haven't been in the mood to get into a really long long addictive game other than Fallout. Then I lost it and can't find it anywhere but don't really want to find it because then I'll be sucked up in the world of Mass Effect.

    I'll probs find it eventually, but I have way too many games sitting here I have never played(Halo 3, Borderlands, Splinter Cell Conviction, Alpha Protocol, Batman Arkham, Bioshock 2, The Saboteur) that I'd rather focus on those first.

    Play Arkham next. It's not too long and you'll have fun playing it.

    Well I'm renting games until the end of the month. After that I'm doing Splinter Cell as Risto wants to do the co-op on that after we beat 50 Cent(oh yeah, playing that too). So I want to do the single player and figure it all out.

    Also after that it'll be a go of Alpha Protocol as Risto says I will jizz all over it.

    Rumor wave was that Alpha Protocol was horrible. I think Risto is setting you up.

    Missed this. The day I bought Infinite Undiscovery last week I saw a pre-owned copy of Arkham Asylum for 15 bucks. I initially felt bad for not grabbing it, but it'd be gathering dust now in favor of ME anyway. Next purchase will be ME2 - after that I might look into Arkham as everyone I know who's played it loved it.

    It's a bench warmer for me at this stage. Was fun for a while but missions are annoyingly similar and your "sneaking around walk" is ridiculous.

    I've got a few on the go right now:

    Call of Duty: Black Ops: Like Nibbles, my multiplayer game of choice. I have a bunch of people I play this with so it's nice not to have to listen to the usual gang of retards that generally populate online games. I also haven't finished the single player game in this one (I think I'm at 300G or so). Will have to do that one day. Kind of unimpressed with the new maps though so I haven't played as much as I usually do when maps are added.

    Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Just got 100% in the main game so I started this a couple of days ago. Seems pretty good and I'm glad I don't have to listen to Marston's son's whiny ass voice anymore. "WORK YOU DAMN NAG!!!" quickly became the most annoying sound in the world.

    NHL 09: One day I'll get a new hockey game to play but this one is still as good as ever.

    NBA 2K9: See above but replace "hockey" with "basketball".

    I also have Batman: Arkham Asylum and Madden 10 sitting untouched. Will have to get to those at some point.

    Shaft NHL 11 is fantastic - the My Player thing in it is amazing from the little bit I have played of it. I finally upgraded from 08->11 and very happy.

    NBA 2K9 sucked haha. 2K8 was where they peaked, then there was all those problems with 2K9 & 2K10 like lag and all that. I haven't played 2K11 but I did do 2K9 & 2K10.

    Also returned SAW and got NBA Live 10 today just for the hell of it. Dead Space 2 was there but I got a bit of work the next few days so wanted to get something I can play every few mins.

    I've enjoyed NBA 2K9. That said, I think it was my first basketball game since either NBA Live 99 or the Kobe Bryant game on the N64 so my standards are pretty low.

    I'll probably pick up NHL 11 when it's $15 - $20 in September.

    2k9 has Garnett on the cover, right? Yeah I tried playing that and hated it.

    Amazon has 2k11 for $40 new (used for under $30) and if that's still in your system I'd recommend an upgrade. The transition from 2k9 -> 2k11 (never played 2k10 but from what I've heard it's closer to 2k9) is a remarkable one.

    Isn't NBA 2k11 getting GOTY consideration?

    Not trying to spoil Nibbles' GOTY list but it was number 3 on my ballot behind Red Dead + Black Ops.

    I just realized what you guys meant when he said that. Whenever I heard it I thought it was a random Michael Jackson noise.

    Currently Playing:
    Persona 3 Portable (PSP) Got stuck on a boss about a third of the way through when it came out so I put it down for awhile. Managed to get past it after a couple more tries and am close to the halfway mark. Playing the female route since I already did the male route on P3FES on PS2 and they are quite different. Also playing on the hardest difficulty which has been fun.

    Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ (DS) found this for cheap at a used store and had heard good things about it. Kind of arcade style game, you move along the bottom and touch the screen to fire at oncoming zombies. It has flaws like terrible slowdown at points as well as a wonky hit box, but it's still a fun game.

    Skies of Arcadia Legends (GCN) Playing through it on and off for the tenth or so time. Specifically to record videos for the bounty battles and other side quests.

    Just beat:
    Ghost Trick Phantom Detective (DS) An excellent point and click kind of mystery adventure. As a ghost trying to regain his memories and find out why he was killed before dawn, when he vanishes, you possess and manipulate objects to influence and traverse the area. Excellent writing, quirky fun characters, and compelling twists make this an easy recommendation. It is rather short, and the puzzles aren't typically too difficult, but totally worth the play.

    Gotta give props to NBA Live 10.

    This was a franchise reset, as they were getting POUNDED at least quality wise by NBA 2K(not sure about sales but wouldn't surprise me). I'd tried the demo out but found it really simmy. However picking up the game oh man - it's actually really well done.

    They basically did what anyone should do on a reset - focus on the core of the game. And boy is it good. The gameplay is great, and with some fine tuning could beat NBA 2K gameplay wise for sure. Also the Dynamic season is awesome - being able to pick a game where Lebron played like shit and see it affect the game is really neat.

    Also Kobe is a hilarious BEAST in this game - totally broken but it adds to the fun value. Pass to him, run ANYWHERE near the net and hold down X and he'll dunk it every time, no matter if he's under double pressure.

    I love the achievements too - a lot of "Get X points with this player, get X rebounds with this player". Really adds to the challenge of it as you go that player in the game and then try and get the achievement. Lotta fun.

    Such a shame NBA Live 11 was such a fail that they canceled it. Not sure where they went wrong as this one was very impressive.

    The only problem I saw with NBA Live 10 is that it's difficulty curve was insane. It went easy, medium, impossibly hard and yeah this level is so hard even God would have a tough time getting it off.

    Arkham is indeed great. Still gotta get to Mass Effect 2.

    Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare My main one right now

    inFamous- Was my main one, should finish it up as I'm near the end.

    God of War III- Probably going to pick up the GOW PS3 collection and play them before going back to this so I know the story. Have enjoyed the game so far and hear good things about the first two.

    Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)- Been playing it casually on the computer.

    Need to get back to Dead Rising 2, dunno if I'll try the boss a couple more times or just restart the game and build up. If the latter it may go down on the list as Dragon Age 2 is coming in less than a month.

    Still gotta finish up Assassin's Creed & CoD:WaW at some point.
