Ilomilo.  Anyone with an xbox should do themselves a favor and buy this.  It's one of the more relaxing games I've played, and made me smile more than any other I've played in recent memory.

I'd like to get it for my phone, but AT&T bought its exclusivity or something like that apparently. Damn them!

I got that game Alpha Protocol for Christmas because the person that gave it to me said they thought it was similar to Mass Effect, and they know how much i loved that. Anyone play it? I'm on the fence about just returning it for something else, but then again there isn't much out right now, *continues waiting for Dead Space 2*

Never played it. From what I heard it's got some big problems, but some people like it nevertheless.

I just jumped back into Dead Space in prep for DS2.  That'll tied me over (with bouts of Halo Reach in between) until Marvel vs Capcom 3 comes out.

Finished playing Final Fantasy IX. I thought it was a good game, of course after playing XII and XIII you don't get used to random battles so much anymore, but I managed to do so. God thing that playing it on the psp doesn't make it look as pixelated as on a tv screen. Now playing some SSF4 in anticipation for M Vs Capcome 3. Juri and Viper are the favorites from the new characters.

What console?  If it's PS3 give me your PSN name.  I tend to do endless battles at night with my friends.

IT is PS3, but right now I have a crappy interntet connection that it just doesn't connect well. I'm moving inthe next month or so, so probably for M V C 3 I will be set to have some network fights.

Maxing out my Shepard. Might do yet another play through with him to do everything perfectly before sending him on to the same in ME2. Any advice?

I don't know how many play through's you've done.  But I'd suggest you try out a variety of classes.  From my experience, some classes were improved compared to their abilities in ME1.  Somehow I tend to choose soldier when I have a goodie Shepard. But Renegade Shepard however, I have multiple classes lol.

I'll add you tonight.  I'm no pro, but I tend to just have friendly endless fights with my friends and all.

Finished Ghost Trick yesterday, which is what I'd been playing for the past few days. Great game, I heartily recommend it to any fan of the Ace Attorney franchise or more simply to anyone looking for a great story-driven puzzle game.

These last 2 weeks I finally (emphasis on finally) got into Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess (gamecube version).  I'm all the way up to the Temple of Time and for the life of me I don't know why I passed up on this game.  I'm loving every second of it  :guts:

Recently I've been playing the wii version. I'm not very far but the controls are driving me insane- I am having a very hard time adjusting to the regular waggle controls and wolf form is borderline unplayable. And of course, Nintendo in their infinite wisdom decided I should not be allowed to plug in a gamecube controller which completely baffles me. While I have been enjoying the other aspects of the game so far, a rogue vacuum cleaner recently destroyed the cable for my sensor-bar and I won't be able to play until I get another one... (sure wish I could use that gc controller right about now)

Been playing a lot of (heavily) modified Fallout 3 lately! Really, the game only begins to shine once you add a crap ton of mods to it. But wow, does it ever shine.

Really? First game I played on the console way back then, and I don't remember having any problem with the controls.

Playing F.E.A.R. 2 at the moment.

I've heard people say they had no trouble, but I find it frustrating. Admittedly I was getting used to it, though I still felt like I battled the camera at every turn and the wolf combat portions are still a nightmare for me- I don't enjoy those at all (although I guess I've only had two so far).

I've been playing nothing but MAME and fighting games at the arcade for the last two months or so. Haven't been in the mood for long single player campaigns or online multiplayers. I dropped Team Fortress in December after playing around 450 hours. What a nerd!

Lucky...  :sad: I'm waiting for the price to drop. $60 just sounds too much to me. Let us know what you think though. And no spoilers please!  :mozgus:

Just beat VVVVVV.  Loved it.  Might even bump one of my top 10 games down a notch.

Dead Space 2 from GameFly (for $5.95 this month =). Enjoying it, but for better and worse they didn't change much except giving Isaac a voice. I miss him as a silent protagonist though. =)

Speaking of which... :carcus:

The entry on Gordon Freeman contains this blasphemy:

Gaming’s most famous mute is easily the crowbar-toting star of the Half-Life series.

What!? That's wrong by just about any measure, and to add insult to injury Link is the very next entry.
