Default Video Games 2012

Guess we should make one of these. So hyped for Mass Effect 3 after playing the demo.

Here's a pretty good article that I'm somewhat inclined to agree with after reading it. Anyone beg to differ?

Why Mass Effect is the Most Important Science Fiction Universe of Our Generation

Right now I'm renting the new Twisted Metal and it's alright I guess. Seems to have an absurd amount of controls to memorize. Hate that I can't try the multiplayer because of the stupid online pass system. EA at least gives you a trial of week. This trend needs to die.

I've been thoroughly pleased with Final Fantasy 13-2. Interested in Syndicate but I'll wait for the reviews before I make my final decision. ME3 goes without saying.

Guys, I'm not going to lie. Immunodeficient purple aliens are freaking hot.

Mass Effect 3 is going to be amazing, looking forward to finally playing Alan Wake.

If you haven't pre-ordered Mass Effect 3 yet, buy.com is offering basically a $20 credit towards a future buy.com purchase when you pre-order.

http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=224525411

That's the link to the xbox format, but the offer is good for PC and PS3 formats as well. Offer is good through 3/3/2012, with the game release date of 3/6/2012.

One of the most underused settings in video games...I'm so excited. And I finally get to reenact my favorite scenes from The Patriot.

My knee jerk response to that was it's so overdone.. but then I thought about just video games, and no.. it's not.. I'd be interested in seeing this carry on to the French Revolution and the War of 1812 though, two other overlooked things..

Ugh.. can't believe ME3 can't import my face from ME2 because I also imported from ME1. Way to fuck that up, BioWare. That's like THE most important thing only, jeez. Maybe if they weren't dicking around with multiplayer they would have gotten that right.

The only thing about this series I don't like is how long each game has been. Love the gameplay, love the story line, so

I was thinking Japan, China, Tibet, etc. would have been a great place for the next game, but I'm warming up to this American Revolution era, especially if they move onto the French Revolution like you mentioned. The two were intertwined enough that it would be easy, story line-wise.
