Goddamn, the Dualshock 3 is so fragile. I drop my black controller from about a foot, it snaps at the one end... still works. Drop my silver controller from the same height, now it randomly unsyncs. And these are just drops. Like they slowly slide off my chair to the floor.

Me, you and Grunt will be unstoppable. At least when we've unlocked some stuff anyway.

Started playing Bioshock 2 multiplayer again and I realised how much of a pain in the ass it is to level up each time. I'm only level 20 as well.

Castle Crashers is another game I've been using again as well I'm just hoping that a bunch more people will use it because the Pink Knight is getting released on the PSN store soon (donations go to Breast Cancer awareness).

So Killzone 3 is still going to have the no-fun-allowed, horrifically slow, almost unplayable "realistic" controls, yeah?

No thanks.

Why anyone would think that would make for an enjoyable experiance beggars belief. Controls should be as smooth and fluid as possible for an FPS, not as clunky as this.

I have never played killzone before, but I'm gonna try this beta. It doesn't sound too good the way you are putting it though.

Calm down. You haven't played it yet and therefor shouldn't form such a negative opinion. From this Beta I can tell the controls and movement have improved from the last game by quite a bit. It's quite fun.

It's definitely worth download for free. Tons of fun to be had.

It's ok. It is a lot like Call of Duty, which sure as hell isn't a compliment.

Nevermind him, he dislikes nearly everything. I've played it solid for a few hours but now I've gotten error code 8001 and can no longer get on. Either the servers are down again or it's just inundated with people.

Also, make sure you're using the alternate control layout and that the sensitivity is at 80%. My K/D is sat at 1.81 so you can trust me on that ;) And unlock one of the assault rifles ASAP.

I gave 2 a chance, and it was unplayably bad. Unless 3 does something spectacularly different, I have no reason to assume it will be any better.

What about a game you like though? Wouldn't it's sequel be great until proven shit?

Of course not. You have to assume they're going to change it for the worse and ruin everything. Dead Space 2 recently proved this a valid stance to take, and Dragon Age 2 is looking so bad I've cancelled my preorder.

I'm loving Killzone 3 so far

Fixed all the handling problems I had with Killzone 2 and it has those nice touches like the Melee kills and the little scenes that unfold after objectives.

Too bad I won't be able to get it because I am getting MvC3 :c

So I just found out about Dragon Age 2 yesterday, apparently the demo is going to be released on the 22nd.

I was considering buying Origins a while ago but now I might just get the 2nd one. I was kind of looking forward to the whole multiple classes thing or whatever, but apprently the 2nd one won't have that.

What do you guys think, GOTY dragon age or save for 2nd one?

I've seen the ending to Assassin's Creed II. That was some weird shit but I do feel like getting Brotherhood now. However, I still need to get the remaining glyphs and feathers so I'll be onto that next as well as sequences 12 and 13. Not sure which game to go with next but I suppose I should start going through Resident Evil 5 which I've borrowed from my sister down in London and has been lying around in my room for a long time now.

GOTY Origins, by a fucking mile.

2 has been dumbed down a ton. No choice of race, less dialogue options due to voice acted main characters, looks like shit (whether this is due mostly to the awful new art direction or the decrease in graphical quality they did to stop it running like shit on the 360, you can decide), day 1 DLC, preorder only DLC, but my favourite is that they responded to complaints about some sections of DA:O being too repetitive not by spicing up the gameplay, but by just making it shorter.

I'm not sure what the GOTY Origins has, but as long as it has the main game + Shale's DLC + Golems of Amgarrak you're sound. Awakenings is okay if you just want more of the same after finishing the main game (it's so long that you probably won't), and the other DLC is all pretty forgettable, but you need Shale's DLC since it has an extra party member who is actually pretty involved in some quests, and you need Golems of Amgarrak because of it's balls to the wall difficulty, which is a great challenge for a max level character.

IMO, you definatly want to play Assassin's Creed Brotherhood as soon as you can. It really is that good.

As for Res 5, meh played it and it was quite fun first 2 or 3 times through after unlocking all the coolz shit, but it got dry once you realise it's the same shit over and over again through the game. Upping the difficulty doesn't really make it a 'new' experiance, just a more frustrating one. Still, if you haven't played it yet, it is worth borrowing rather then shelling out for your own copy. It's better if she has the all in one CD with the DLC added.

Anyways, anyone take advantage of double XP weekend on COD:BO? I did. Have to say, double XP weekends added with the whole changing contracts thing is actually a nice touch to multiplayer, makes you think they actually care about keeping people in the game, unlike MW2 which is just HAXX0RZ city now.

Definitely. Assassin's Creed is a series that just keeps getting better with each game.

Anyway, looks my PS3 is going back to gathering dust until Arkham City, and maybe Resistance 3 if it looks to have a decent enough single player. 2 was a step backwards from 1, but was still good. Any more shift towards a multiplayer focus and I'll pass on it. All the best games are elsewhere. Pokemon, Portal 2, Duke, Red Orchestra, Tropico 4, Mass Effect 3.

I am looking forward to the ICO and Tomb Raider HD collections, though.

I will want to get it but for now I should give other games a chance. ACII already took around 40 hours of my life.

As for Res 5, meh played it and it was quite fun first 2 or 3 times through after unlocking all the coolz shit, but it got dry once you realise it's the same shit over and over again through the game.

I at least want to play it through once to see how it all ends. RE4 clearly suggested a few more things going to happen in the series so I'd like to see what happens next.
