    DC Universe Online - first month was free, paid for the Legends pack for the next 3 months and it takes up a tonne of space on my poor 40GB PS3, so there's not really room for anything else to be played until I Platinum it and see what the DLC is like.

    I think the problem with these franchises is they hit the wall in gameplay. They need to change enough to warrant a release each year which ends up going backwards. Then they'll do a big reset and the cycle begins again, although usually shorter as the reset sets a high benchmark.

    They should really have these franchises on a 2-3 year cycle, and charge for roster/stats updates in the interim. Have two franchises for each sport, one is the pure simulation game, the other the arcade gameplay and alternate releases to keep up a yearly timetable.

    Skies of Arcadia caused my biggest gaming heartbreak. So close to beating everything and my memory card erased. Beating it 100percent is on my video gaming bucket list.

    The problem is - they can release crap every year, and people will still buy them! The Smackdown vs RAW franchise is one of the biggest sellers when it comes out yet it generally is always crap(I mean seriously, changing the control system EVERY year?). So on another point, they really don't have any incentive to make things amazing - they don't have to unless they're 2nd to another franchise. Look at the EA NHL series for the perfect example of that, then the EA NBA Series obv. Then look at the shit Madden brings out year after year.

    However the worst thing you can do is skip a year, and allow another franchise to really dominate - and that's what they did. Christ they even had NBA Jam packaged with it - they coulda released the exact same game and it would've killed - that dynamic DNA thing is fantastic and when you play it it's tough to really imagine playing without it.

    They didn't even make an NBA Live 10 for PS2, last one was 09 which is why I still play it.

    Scots make sure you play Arkham on hard. Difficulty achievements stack. No need to thank me.

    Plus it's a pretty easy game, hard isn't really a challenge.

    I'd recommend starting out on easy, or maybe playing a few of the combat maps on easy first, and then restart the game on hard. The combat has a bit of depth to it considering it's really only two buttons and works on timing. On easy enemies have prompts to help you with the button presses which aren't there on hard.

    It's not difficult on hard, but without the prompts it takes a little while to work it out.

    Playing Dead Space 2 right now.

    Only a little bit into the 2nd chapter but holy shit it's awesome so far. Deffo not a game to play with any distractions etc - just get yourself immersed in the game and the atmosphere. Also not looked at any achievements at all so always fun when they pop up.

    I know nobody really gives a shit about my NBA Player, but if I can convince anyone to buy this fantastic game - $30 at amazon.com right now (use the NPP affiliate links!) for both 360 and PS3 - I will.

    Anyway, two things happened that have made the game awesome:

    1. I dropped all my skill points into "consistency", brought it from 25 -> 80, and have become the highest scorer in the league over the past couple months.
    2. Requested a trade, put the Lakers as the first option thinking I'd never get traded there, and then suddenly boom, I'm in the starting lineup. Assists galore as I throw it to Kobe, Gasol, and Bynum.

    So I decided to grow out a hobo beard and drop a double-double on my old team the Bucks. I got the Heat Christmas Eve matchup and, despite knowing Boner the Heat fan will be rooting against me, am scared shitless to have to defend Lebron and Wade.

    Seriously everyone, $30. If you're remotely a fan of basketball I swear to god it's worth it.

    I do love hearing about stuff like that so keep me updated. Does it not get tiring playing every game? Is it a full NBA season or are you able to select a limited season?

    That's super sick being traded to the Lakers. I won't buy this years edition but most likely next years.

    This Heat fan trolling is puzzling at best.

    Playing alpha protocol right now. Fucking amazing game with loads of replayability as u choose ur own mission path, who ur friends etc are and so on. Just so fucking fun. Also can play it the way u want like can be stealth or can go in like hobo with a shotgun.

    Reminds me a fair bit of the syphon filter games which were my fav games on ps1.

    Play Black Ops on veteran, checkpoints already annoying. On veteran, you are going to be dying a lot, why have checkpoints right before cutsenes or in-game dialogue that you can't skip past?
