    Thanks DH, I will most likely buy it anyway as I enjoy the replay value of games. I would totally play Dragon Age again with a different character class and I look forward to DA 2 but I want to get thru MA first. :D

    Little Big Planet, and maybe Super Stardust (that's in there, right?). I already have inFamous (excited for the sequel!).

    I got inFamous and LBP. inFamous is okay, seems like a cross between TFU and Crackdown.

    Still playing Dark Star One. Action gameplay and graphics are great for any one looking for an awesome console spaceflight combat sim/rpg but the story and cutscenes are horrible. It'd be great if Bethesda picked up the engine and did a Star Trek Legacy sequel or Lucasarts used it to make a new console based Tie Fighter.


    E3 showed more Skyrim today, looks amazing. Way better UI and graphics/animation than Oblivion imho. Can't wait till 11.11.11!

    Wii U.


    [sigh]


    [face_plain] Really?

    As excited as I am for the console, why can't the big three come up with better names? I understand the concept of brand, but a Mustang and an Explorer are both distinctly Ford and still don't have lame names.

    Even Virtual Boy was a cooler name than this.

    Wii U sounds like an onomatopoeia for a French police siren...

    I think Wii U sounds like something someone says when someone else farts.

    Some TOR announcements from SDCC:

    Beta testing to begin in September.

    Release Date "should" be Holiday 2011, but they also said it depends on whether BW felt the game was done. Enough! Give us the game already!

    Also, the leaked CE details from the other day.

    Preordered. I might still cancel, depending on what info comes down the wire in the coming months, but for now I'm locked in. Sitll waiting to hear the specs and how solid the single player is, but apart from that it looks pretty good.


    I'd rather have KOTOR 3 but wish in one hand...

    I finally got Halo: Reach, and just as I started to enjoy it, our power supply failed. Time to see how the warranty works.
