    I never play PS3 games (well, we play the BUZZ! party games when people are over).

    Yesterday I bought God of War III. What I saw online looked amazing.

    We don't like complicated controls any more. I plan to hack and slash through this thing (PLEASE!!), but I don't know yet.

    Nothing, I am saving myself for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I have every Zelda game and corresponding game system.

    My wife has Twilight Princess for Wii and LOVES it!

    Good stuff.

    How is it???

    I really want to buy this but, being the purist that I am, have to beat II before I start.

    Hi Vargas!

    I just got it in the mail yesterday, and I played it for only 30 mins or so (it was after midnight). So far, pretty impressive, but I didn't get that far. This HUGE crab-like creature is killing me (while I'm on the underside of this titan's arm.)

    I'll periodically report as I move forward in the game. I'll likely try it again tonight.

    Awesome! I became obsessed with God of War I in the early spring and played it--great ending. I started II in the late spring but since the weather has been so nice and baseball season started (and now ended for us) I haven't cranked it up in a while. I need a crappy rainy day.

    Did you play I and II? I assume yes. Anyway, report in!

    No, I didn't. I'm totally new to this.

    I (we) STILL can't beat the monstrous crab with the horse face. lol ;)

    GOW 3 is a really really good game. They did a phenominal job at "hiding" the loading screens in that game. The first 30 minutes of the game is really really cool.

    On an unrelated note, I was bored last night and threw in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I loaded my most recent save and saw that I had logged over 90 hours and hadn't touched the actual main storyline (beyond what you have to do in the opening of the game). So now I'm playing oblivion again. we'll see if the sidequests make me stray off course again. :)

    I have that, but I left the game after I couldn't catch the last wolf (running searching, searching, searching, couldn't find it, for hours...) , then there were the bottles of wine...

    Great game. I just stopped playing it because it was taking enormous amounts of time.

    Picked up Batman: Arkham Asylum again yesterday. Man, I forgot how cool that game was. Wondered why I sold it in the first place. Felt kinda lame, bought Gears 2 while I was there to have a 2-player co-op for the wife and I, and the guy asked me why I just didn't pre-order Arkham City and Gears 3....

    Played a couple PS3 demos for God of War Origins, El Shaddai: Rise of the Metatron, and From Dust.

    I'll be getting all three. El Shaddai has amazing cell animation....looks like a Japanese Don Bluth movie.

    From Dust is kind of an on the fly Sim Earth god game with some thinking and strategy
    required, but it's pretty relaxing.

    Already preordered Battlefield 3, and will be buying Batman Arkham City and Uncharted 3.

    Also can't wait for Bioshock Infinite. That one kind of flew under my radar until I watched this E3 video.

    I'm playing some old Xbox games: Thief Deadly Shows and Splinter Cell Double Agent.

    Good game. All of them on original Xbox were, especially Chaos Theory.

    After I finished the first one back in the early Bush administration, I caught myself sneaking around in dark hallways at work in a crouch.

    hah. Sort of like the paranoia that Metal Gear Solid Snake induced. When the game started flickering out you thought your system was frying, then it starts commanding you to turn the game off and go back to reality.

    Metal Gear was always seen as a competitor to Splinter Cell, but I never cared for Metal Gear. SC is absolutely unique--it's stealth action on steroids. Or maybe on valium...sometimes it's just cool to sit in the environments and admire the graphics for a while.

    I dug Chaos Theory the most out of the Xbox ones. One of my favorite musicians, Amon Tobin did the soundtrack, so I also went out and bought the vinyl release.


    I should go back and play the last one they did for this generation of consoles.

    SC: Conviction was "ok". Very different from the true stealth formula of the original splinter cell games. What was frustrating was that no matter how "stealthy" you played, it always devolved into a massive shootout at the end of the level.

    That's a shame...I need a 360 so I can keep up!
