blaz blue isn't just a fighting game its the best 2d beat-em up on this generation of consoles, it's worth noting that im not counting street fighter 4 as its 2.5d

As expected, I just bought MadWorld, House of the Dead: Overkill and No More Heroes.
Thoughts to come later.

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is pretty good as well. As with all zelda games it's pretty similar to the last but it's still fun

Blitzed through CoD: MW2 last night and the day before. Loved it, the story is top draw and the set pieces are amazing.

lolwat. It's 7 hours of batshit crazy conspiracy theories, one after the other, nevermind the fact that one man's corpse sparks a world war. It's absolutely hilarious, but it is a cracking game.

That's what I love about it.... I'm hoping some of the more obvious plot holes (except from the aforementioned American deep cover operative getting blamed for a whole massacre some how...) like the end of the last Roach mission will get explained by the third game which is in development at the moment.

This. The story is fucking shit. It's easily the worst story of all time ever. It's still a fun game though.

Anybody read any reviews for Nier , it looks quite good, Square Enix are usually good at these types of games

I just watched the trailer for Okamiden. I'm not sure how to feel about this... if it was actually Okami II, I would be so psyched.... but it's not. :/
