Well, now that I'm back at uni and adjusting to my old schedule, I'm surprised that the few hours of free time that I actually get to spend on Xbox don't fly by like I thought they would. Still, I'd much rather it was the summer so that I could just mess about.

Still really wanting to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Dead Island. Was going to ask my make for a loan of his Deus Ex copy, but then I remembered he bought it on PS3. Brother has a copy of Dead Island so still hopeful that I'll get a chance to play it within the next few weeks if he's done with it by then.

(Note: I don't actually post on the Video Game forums that much, but I can still post here, right?)
So, anyway, a few things I wanted to say:

First of all..if you haven't tried Deux Ex, just do it.Seriously.
I'm very picky with my games, especially the ones that claim to have an "epic story" that's not just a token or an excuse for you to bash heads, and yet I can safely say that it's the best game I've played since..uh..probably since Mass Effect 2.
As I'm sure many people have already said, one of the things I like the most is that it doesn't think you're an idiot, there's no hand-holding in the missions.
It feels like a Hitman game (well duhhhh, Eidos) with a bit of MGS and Mass Effect sprinkled on it.

The second thing I have to say is a problem of mine...I posted a thread about it, but to no avail.Red Orchestra 2.
I've rarely come across a game that has divided gamers so much.You have people saying it's glorious, and gritty, and that the guns feel powerful, and that there are real tactics involved as opposed to the usual twitch shooting and so on..
But then, you also have people saying that it's really unstable, that it looks terrible, that it tries too hard to be realistic, taking away some of the fun, that the whole thing is very bugged and that you have to struggle to actually do something instead of running around the map like an idiot.

The last point, I really didn't like.It reminded me of the stupidly big maps in BFBC2 where you had to spend half your life running through an open field until you actually arrived somewhere useful..it was, by far, the most frustrating aspect of that otherwise good game.

So, can anyone confirm/deny any of that?I really need to know before they release the game on Zavvi (where I'm going to buy it from, IF I'm going to buy it), which is like in a day and a half from now.

Tramps got me thinking of selling some of my Xbox 360 games in order to be able to buy some of the newer releases, seeing as I don't play a lot of the games now anyway. Still, now that I have a collection of 650+ games over all consoles, it's a little hard to start selling things now.

I'd really love to get my hands on a copy of Deus Ex though and be able to get Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and possibly Modern Warfare 3 on or at least around release. I probably would be able to fund them all just from selling my games, but it would definitely help.

I just can't decide whether I want to start selling games now or not.

Yea, I mean that's my default opinion but I guess having a temporary boost in spendable money would be cool. Although I'd soon regret having sold loads of games just to buy one or two with the money. I think ideally what I need is a LoveFilm account. That way I'd get to play most of the games I wanted for a more reasonable price. Sadly rental services are still out of my reach right now.

Maybe I could have sold my teeth if my new dentist didn't decide to put fillings in them last week! >:C

Going to sell some old uni books on amazon at some point though. They should fetch £50 or so, minus whatever amazon rob me of.

Well, that, or you could buy the games from discount sites and save like 40% without breaking a sweat.
Then there's the old-fashioned way of trying a game before buying it to ensure that you're going to like it (okay, there's no need to do that with Skyrim and Deus Ex, but still), and, last but not least, sell the items you have in Steam Trading (like TF2 and Spiral Knights items) for money...if you have any, obviously.

HEY GUYS:

I know I don't post here a lot, but a little known fact is that I do lurk here. Anyway, I wanted to tell you this: Starting now, if I see someone try to derail a thread into a flame war/console war/big fanboy argument, I'm going to ban them.

Let's all try to keep our discussion civil, and not hash up the same arguments that have gone nowhere for the past decade, eh?

Well, the sequels that we're going to see will probably be good ones..
I mean, ME3, Uncharted 3, MW3 (not sure about that one) BFBC3, Assassin's Creed 3 (don't remember the name).
They're all no.3's, but hey.
And then of course there are the MMO's... Guild Wars 2, Planetside, End of Nations, Secret World...
There's bound to be something good out of all this, no?

Yeah I actually bought the latest Black Ops map pack. I'm not the biggest fan of CoD, but I do love Zombies, and I did love the maps in WaW and the new one looks semi interesting.

LoveFilm are sending me the new Call of Jaurez game and TC's R6 Vegas 2, not really the games I wanted, but I guess Dead Island, Deus Ex and Driver would all be being used at the moment anyway.

What I do when a new game is released is remove EVERY OTHER GAME from my rental list, so they're forced to send me the one I want.

Because my rental service isn't run by fucktards, I have to have a minimum of 10 in my list at a time.

Something interesting I found today was universal game cases. People buy these then print out the cover to put in their loose snes, genesis or n64 games. You can put in NES games with some modication. Here's a picture of what a game case with a cover looks like. I'm going to start doing these to my games cause it looks a lot better than just the catridge. Does anyone already do this? Here's an example.

I don't do that, nor have I ever seen anyone do that before, but it's a really cool idea. I have a lot and I mean a lot of loose games but most of them aren't on the best formats to find boxes for. There's a lot of loose cassette tapes, floppy discs, GBC cartridges and GBA cartridges. I just store as many of them as I can in a plastic box. Still would be far cooler to have them boxed in some way with cover art.

I've played so few games recently it's embarrassing, all mostly due to me moving into my flat, buying paint, carpets, kitchen appliances, etc it's all very exciting though. I've been told I can move in from Monday, painting on Sunday , carpets sometime in the week.

Then I just sort out my line rental and internet and I can be playing games again :-D

How's your job hunt going Mini? Doesn't seem like it was al that long ago, but did you hear anything from GameStation yet?

Someone was asking me if I wanted to rent a flat with them yesterday, but I just can't afford it. I've not had a job for over 2 years now so money is running low and I don't really have the time to take on anything other than a weekend job but that would mean sacrificing the only real free time that I have, which I'm obviously not really keen to do.

I'll need to set up a massive gaming shrine whenever I do finally get my own place.

That's actually really cool, where do you get them? I'd definitely consider getting some, mostly because the lack of end labels on N64 cartridges piss me off. Box art and the ability to actually display your games on a shelf is always good too.
