Just finished MK9. Probably the most unfair campaign I've played in a fighter. Took just four sittings though. Still plenty of stuff left to do in the game. The last fight wasn't as hard I had expected. Shao Kahn is still cheap as hell, but knowing the timings of his moves lets Raiden will pretty easily by spamming the flying move, back-stepping, and low-guarding whenever necessary. My favorite characters to use from the campaign were Scorpion, Raiden, and Nightwolf. Lots of characters I haven't tried out yet. Unlocking all the fatalities was a pretty nasty process, lol..Anyways, definitely one of the best fighters I've played. Should be fun playing the multiplayer with friends over the summer. Looks like the series isn't over yet from the ending.

Not sure if I should go back and try my luck at Dark Souls again or go enjoy Kingdoms of Amalur next.

Looking at the list of the upcoming retail games for the next 3 months, I don't think I can even name five titles I'm interested in. You guys getting anything in the near future? Max Payne 3 (5/15), Ghost Recon Future Soldier (5/22), and Dragon's Dogma (5/22) are it for me. Don't see anything decent that's already been announced for June or July for the 360. Might use this time to go back to older popular games like Dragon Age, BioShock, RDR, GTA, and so on. Any other popular series from the past five years I should check out? Diablo III (May 15) and a number (3) of good 3DS games should be coming this summer though.

I have yet to pick up the since I don't have the money at the moment but I'll be sure to keep that in mind. By the way, have you completed the game? If so, how long is it?

I'm part way through the third of the three chapters, and I've been playing it pretty solidly since it launched, so I'm happy enough with the game's length. Also from what I have heard, the replay value is pretty high, as which side you choose changes the story quite a bit.

Haven't had any time at all to play my 360 over the past few weeks. Even though I bought mass effect 1 a few weeks back, I haven't had the time to actually open the shrink wrap and play the game. Its just sitting there untouched

Finally tried out the online multiplayer in ME3. Not what I was expecting at all, lol. I must have been misinformed. I thought there'd be the usual deathmatch gameplay. Instead, it's just survival co-op/mini-missions with up to 3 other players like the one in RAGE. Pretty lame. Not the kind of online mp that attracts a big player base. Think I'll stick to single-player and run through ME + ME2 instead when I get the chance.

Thats the better way to experience this series, it feels great to use the same character on the three games, makes you care about your virtual dude... Never dig the muliplayer on this, just tried it once and then downloades infiltrator and datapad for a bett way to get my war readiness up.
