  1. Time for another weekend video game round up! This week we had a new comer to the PS3, but I'll get to it in a second. My youngest brother and I had decided to get each other Workaholics on DVD for Christmas (and I also got him a TMNT Raph RC car) but we told each other to go to Best Buy and pick it up Friday. So I got there and got my gift, turns out it was a fake out and he got me COD MW3! What a punk! Now Workaholics and the Raph car comes out to almost $40 ($25 being my original limit) but he upped it so now I am gonna get him a slamming B-day gift come January.

     

    Anyhow, my wife and I loved MW3, I forgot how different (yet the same) the COD titles are. We kept switching to Black Ops though so we could play with her brother since I got him a headset for the PS3 for Christmas. Unfortunately all this COD has got me not playing Batman at all! I can't juggle two games at once, not my style.

     

    It's funny, I feel like a lot of the year, I only play a handful of titles, having two games I need to play and beat is kind of a foreign concept. Now this year I'm getting God of War 3, Zelda, and I already got MW3, add on top of that the games I bought a week ago, Street Fighter, Midnight Club, and Resident Evil 5, AND I still need to beat Batman! I go on vacation on Friday and will be out till next year, so I think I will be doing some heavy duty gaming!

     

    What about you guys? Who here is getting a game or two this year? Did you pick it out? Are you playing it already?

  2. Man, I've been so busy with holiday stuff and working, I haven't had any time at all to play anything! My brother in law got a PS3 earlier this month, and he has been staying on COD Black Ops ever since. I drew his name for the family gift exchange so I picked him up a PS3 headset. Now I was going to get him the same one I have, but I would have had to wait a week to get it and it would only be arriving right before Christmas, so I just threw in an extra $10 and got him a different one so we could play this weekend.(I got it from best buy so I am doing in store pick-up)

     

    When it comes to giving gifts with my brothers, we tell each other what to get, and we exchange it as soon as we both have them, no waiting, no wrapping, that's how brothers handle it, so I told my wife Im giving her brother the choice to play by her familys rules, or if he wants the brother treatment... who could say no to getting early gifts? Needless to say he'll be enjoying his headset right after I get after work.

  3. Come on guys! You TOTALLY aren't seeing it the right way! They are actually doing us a favor by offering something so lame at such a high price! Man Mattel really cares about us fans, don't they? Yeah prices on everything are getting super high, and, let's face it, this is a luxury hobby, but Mattel is all like "hey guys, want this crappy JLU figure so bad? Pay me $50 so you can throw away the other figures and really just buy one" I swear, if we didn't have Mattel watching our backs, who knows what kind of chaos would ensue!

     

    Thank you Mattel! You are totally that friend who does nothing but ask favors and hits us up for some extra cash. I swear Matty, you ever fall on hard times, you've totally got a couch at my place braj!

     

    .... so I can smother you with a pillow

  4. Most games aren't worth the $60 retail price. Nothing wrong waiting til they hit that sweet spot of $20.

    Yeah there are only a handful of games I have bought at retail price, and mostly I resell my games to help offset what I spent on them. $20 is more the right price, but honestly it the most fun you can have with $20 these days...

  5. Another weekend has passed, and that means my PS3 has gotten a work out, unlike my actual body. Friday was a work night, so lets just glaze over that. Saturday I got home from work at about 730am, and since my wife had the day off, I figured I would only get a few hours sleep before she or something woke me up, and sure enough, her sister called at noon to ask if we wanted to play her and her brothers in some COD. We say sure and log in and wait and wait and wait, finally we call and they say their internet is down. So we just played COD for a while, went to my brothers and drank and played COD MW3 and went to best buy. Yeah, so shopping at best buy drunk I ended up buying a few dvd's, some CD's, Resident Evil 5, Midnight Club something, and Super Street Fighter. We had lots of fun playing Midnight Club and SSF, all game were her choice too so I didn't feel SO guilty about getting them. I have already beaten RE5, but she really wants to play that one.

     

    Some day I will actually buy NEW games versus old games that are new to me!

  6. Skyrim is eating my soul!

    That always attracts me a title, even if we can't play at the same time, if my wife can enjoy it there is more value.

    Amen brother! For me it's the easiest way to justify spending $60 if we can both enjoy it versus me spending it all on myself

  7. Played more Batman and Black Ops over the weekend. Batman is still the same joy ride I've been enjoying this whole time, I was finally able to get the 50X combo trophy, then I got another 50X combo a few minutes later, such is life! Same story with Black Ops, murkin' bitches left and right, it's so much fun! My wife is getting better too, though sometimes I like to take the controller while she is playing free for all and I'll let her talk while I play (like shes the one workin' em over)

     

    I don't remember if I mentioned it before, but we agreed to get a new HDTV and MW3 with our income tax return. I figure it will be best to buy it right around SuperBowl time since I am sure most store will be ready to get rid of their leftover Christmas stock. I'm thinking we will both call in sick the first day we get it...

  8. finally plaed some more Black Ops and got my ass handed to me my Kill death Ratio is apparently 0.58% @grumpy@

    I've been getting back into black ops as well, but I am having the opposite happen to me. First game I played since getting Batman I was 40 and 8, giving me a 5 ratio, then the next game I was 20 and 2, giving me a 10. Im an ok player, but I dont get scores like that. I figure a lot of people moved on to MW3, so honestly Ive feel like there are a lot less experienced people on Black Ops now, but that is just my opinion.

     

    Actually I came home from work the other day and my wife was playing online in a match with her brother (he just got a ps3) and I was really surprised since she never wants to play with me! Then last night that is all we did from the time I got home till about 2am, even then I was the person saying I was tired and she kept saying "one more game, one more game!" Her best match she was 5 and 8, I was so proud!

     

    Oh, and I am pretty sure I have been able to talk her into the big screen, I just kept saying "imagine how cool this would be on a bigger, sharper screen!"

  9. Yeah man, I am guilty as charged for still having an SDTV! Honestly now that I think about it, I am the only person I know that doesn't have one already! It's kinda funny, I have a kick ass sound system setup in our bedroom, dolby 5.1 surround with a nice sub. The sounds from the game are great, when I play COD, the room is nothing up gun fire and being able to hear what direction it comes from sure does help at times too!

     

    Maybe I will get one with my income tax refund next year...

  10. I hear you about it being repetitive sometimes... but you have to mix it up.. there is SO much to do in that game. first, you do have to do all the little missions for the heroes (or villains) to just get yourself leveled up and get some decent gear. But you should also be taking advantage of all of the "ON DUTY" games. You get some nice levelling up and gear there too, and you get to mix it up with the opposing players in the arenas. Also, they get you the other forms of currency like Influence, Marks of Conquest, etc.. that will be important later in the game when you want to buy upgraded gear. You have to also make sure to switch between Gotham and Metropolis when you get bored.. and you might also want to experiment with different powers from your power tree or skills. If you aren't happy with the way you have spent your points on powers and skills, you can undo it all for 500 bucks in the main base. I don't know where it is in the Hall of Doom

     

    and if you haven't yet, I definitely recommend switching to the PvP servers.. it makes it so much more fun. There is nothing like coming up to a villain or hero and beating them down in the middle of town... that keeps the game really fun.

     

     

    anyhow, sorry you aren't enjoying it as much as me.. I am currently addicted to it pretty hard.

     

    Yeah my cousin is lvling like crazy and he is really enjoying the game. Again, because of the SD TV, it cuts off the corners of the screens, like I can read part of the chats, but half of it is missing. I really need to upgrade my TV is the root of the problem! I will admit I had a lot of fun beating up Bizarro! It's a fun game, but I think the problems are on my end.

     

    sounds like I should give it another try

     

    Yeah for sure! I bet you can pick up Arkham Asylum for pretty cheap, it's pretty much the same game (but City is for sure the winner!) My cousin played the new one while vising not too long ago, he's a huge batman fan and I was surprised he had never played either game. After playing up here for a half hour or so, he went back home and bought Aslyum and is hooked!

  11. Sounds like people took advantage of the BF deals, good for you guys! As for me, well there really weren't any games I wanted too badly. I'm a one game at a time kind of guy, but I was able to pick up God of War 3 new from game stop for 10 bucks with my trade in and the sale, so that is a plus! I figure that will give me till Christmas to beat Batman (almost done) and then beat God of War 2 (never finished it).

     

    Still playing DCU, but there are times when it feels very repetitive so I can only play for an hour or so before I am bored again. I can't really read everything that is displayed on the screen either since I have an SDTV, so that may play into it as well.

     

    It's funny, I used to play non-stop COD Black Ops, but since Batman I haven't touched it at all.

    man you guys love the arkham series I couldn't figure the first one out and ended up getting extremely frustrated

    Honestly man, I think you missed out if you gave up. Both games were overwhelming at first, but it's such a fun game! It's as close to being Batman as you can get. All the gadgets and riddles makes you feel like a lot has been thrown at you, but once you get into the game and understand how the game mechanics flow, it all weaves together. I'm not saying it's the greatest game ever, but it's for sure the best adventure super hero based game out there.

  13. Another weekend gone, and more of the Joker's henchmen lay on the ground by Batmans feet! You guess it, played more Arkham this weekend, it's such a fun game and I love doing side missions, I find myself roaming the streets sometimes, just looking for some fist fights. I am probably the last person who owns this game to find out, but I bought a can of NOS energy drink and downloaded the Batman Beyond skin. Pretty cool looking and it wasn't a terrible drink, so it was worth it!

     

    Also played some DCU and I about doubled my play time. I changed the font size and changed the screen so it would fit on my SD TV, but it is still hard to read txt. Been a great game, though switching between the games, I keep pressing wrong buttons on both sides of fence.

     

     

    so if you buy a NOS drink it'll give you a code for a BBY skin?

     

    Yup! There was nothing on the can about it, just a code that it said to go and input to their website and it game me a "point" that I could buy a skin with, they gave me a code, and boom, download complete on the ps3! Go buy yourself a can, I think the offer is ending soon. Its ok to drink, but AMP is better

  14. I love these kinds of things! People feel like they are making a difference, and it's kinda funny. I mean really, when a company is banking BIG time with this sort of thing, do people really think they care about an online petition? Hell no! If you don't want people to have to work on Thanksgiving day, DON'T SHOP! If you feel strongly enough, just don't go to the store! Send the message where it really hurts, the wallet. Don't give these stores your money, THEN you can probably email them and let them know about your choice. Yeah it's probably like sand off a beach to them, but "signing" a meaningless online petition is futile.

     

    Personally, I do not shop on Christmas. It's the same principle as far as I am concerned. I feel everyone should have that day off (just like Thanksgiving). Yeah people will ALWAYS have to work certain jobs, no matter what day it is, but I am not going to add to it. I never buy anything on Christmas, it's just how my parents raised me.

  16. Guess nobody has gotten any minimates in a while, but I'll share what I got. TRU has the second RGB wave, so I snagged a Peter/Winston and StayPuft/Tully. They didn't have the other ghost packs, but Im glad I was about to complete the set of busters and finally get a regular Stay Puft (my other is the explosion one)

  17. Yesterday I went to sign on and the PSN was down, for a few minutes I started to worry that it would be down for a month like last time. So I spent some more time at Arkham City, such a good game. Challenging but not so much so that I want to quit and move on. The boss battles are kinda easy too, but its a good story all together.

     

    Didn't get a chance to play and DCU, though I am hoping to switch to the pvp server soon.

  18. anyone else play the Halo anniversary game yet? I like how you can switch between old graphics and new graphics that actually caught me by suprise

     

    That sounds pretty cool. I honestly haven't touched my 360 in over a year, but this and Gears of War 3 make me want to wipe the dust off of it.

  19. It's funny I started to redownload the patch yesterday while I was at home on my lunch break, then when I got home, it had finished and signed me in, I picked up the controller and within 30 seconds of being home I was in. I got my cousin to DL it and play but we must be on two different PvE servers because we were in the same spot but didnt see each other. I think tonight we will try switching to a PvP and hopefully meeting up with each other.

     

    I hope there arent tons of patches all the time, that is one thing I do NOT miss about WoW

  20. well, IMPERIUSREX is a hero on the PvE server because I was brand new and didn't know how the game worked and I didn't want to get killed all day while trying to do missions and stuff. But it get's a little old because there are times you want to fight somebody and they might now have any interest.lol... and there are some feats where you are supposed to kill 5 villains etc, and it is really hard to find them.

     

    So I just decided to make a Villain on the PvP server. His name is DocD00M and yeah, he looks like Dr.Doom. I just started playing him (only level 4) and have already been killed twice by hero players while just minding my own business lol.

    Yeah I am on the PvE server, Im going to be playing this kinda casually, so a PvE server more suites how often I am gonna play. Im only at lvl 5, last night it said it started downloading a patch, so it was moving along at about 80% my internet stopped working. So I checked this morning and internet was back up, but it made me start the download again! My wife will want to just the PS3, so I'll have to wait till tonight to try it again.

     

    Does it need to download patches alot? Feels like Ive spent more time downloading stuff then actually playing.
