GET THE PICTURE, EA. STOP MAKING BATTLEFIELD. YOU'RE THE CANCER THAT'S SPOILING THE INDUSTRY.

Borderlands is a great game. Including DLC, it's about 40 hours long as well (and it has three playthroughs, so over 100), so it'll definitely give you something to do.

Is it similar to Fallout 3? Or did they improve it, as I thought Fallout 3 was terrible.

New Vegas is made by the guys who did Fallout 1,2 and Wasteland. The story is much better, there's more weapons and it captures the proper Fallout feel a lot better. There's a fuckton of nods to the original Van Buren story and factions in the first two games.

Plus instead of that green desolate feel, it's in a nice sunny desert, and had Elvis impersonators, and Chandler is one of the characters. And people say ring-a-ding

Ohhh I could go on.

Doesn't someone fairly famous play Caesar? Or is that him?

Michael Dorn reprises his role as Marcus. Can't believe I missed Matthew Perry as Benny, and Rene Auberjoinios (or however the fuck you spell it) is Mr House.

Perry does a really great job, I didn't believe it was him either.

I'm aware it's nto going to be the best game ever, but it looks like some stuff might be kinda cool and unique, and taht's all i really need.


It's an ok game, but there is a limit to how many times I can take falling off the same god damn roof over and over again. Good idea for a game, but just didn't work so well in practice.

I was wondering when Xbox would do something shitty like this to their customers. Oh well, looks like I will have to change the way I buy my games when/if this happens, or change my console to one that allows me to play used games.

I bought GTA4 and Tales from Liberty City on the sale. I find it odd that on a laptop that can comfortably run Skyrim it's having huge graphical issues with GTA4
