Eeh, none of those companies have done much to ingratiate themselves with me recently. Though the AC series is fun, and Rayman Origins is very good.

Bollox. DA2 was one of the most boring rpgs I have ever played. The combat was good maybe but everything else about the game was either clichéd or otherwise uninteresting, the voice acting was horrible and all of the characters were blank slates. Story-wise ME2 is one of the best games out there.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!

the dumbed down feel, for me, worked better with melee combat than it did in ME. made it like an action RPG, which i am happy with and the balance was right, as opposed to a third person shooter with a few RPG elements in to make it longer than a few hours.

and i really think ME3 looks bad.


Proving, as ever, you're just wrong.


Bioware have the next C&C game in development. I shall be interested, after the utter debacle that was C&C4, to see how Generals 2 comes out.

how am i wrong exactly? mass effect 2 is not an RPG, its a shooter thats got some RPG mixed into it. the entire aim was not to appeal to fans of the first game, but to attract a new audience to make more money. same with mass effect 3. the only reason i'll bother renting ME3 is for the story, although i can see myself sticking to the old "mass effect is not a trilogy, it is one game, the reapers lost at the end of said one game" thing i do.

someone on my XBL friends list is already level 35 in ME3 and the third achievement he got was for levelling one of his powers up to level 6. i think i'll avoid paying anything at all for this game, looks like its made for the cod gamers.

to clarify, i like cod, but bioware should be making RPGs.

got the fist of the north star game cause fist of the north star looks badass. rented street fighter x tekken as well. the achievements in street fighter are ridiculous. i have 5, worth 50 gamerscore, and none of them are for fighting. all the fighting ones are "hit your super ultimate mega cross attack 800000000000 times" :(

didnt rent ME3, because 3 people i know have ended up buying two copies because they're cocks. so my brother is buying it for £30 off one of them and i'll get a shot of his. might do a run through 2 again though to keep the ship at the end. already let the rachni queen go in 1 which should give me an advantage but i have a feeling i'll want the ship as well.

Well, I am about four or five hours in now I would say. I have to admit that ME3 is a lot of ding dong doodily funarino.

fist of the north star is pretty good. its like dynasty warriors, but a bit slower paced. what it lacks in pace, it makes up for in badassness. you can make guys explode by punching them :D

ME3 is great, at the end of Mars I had my heart in my throat.

Anyone who says Galaxy at War isn't fun is a massive liar.

Well, I play PC so I don't spend more money on online play. I really like it, but not really done 3rd person co-op before...some of the new monsters are insane. Seriously, try it.
