I tried and then bought Mark of the Ninja yesterday while it was on sale. Pretty darn fantastic game. Beautiful art style and really fun gameplay. Great ninja stealth game. If you didn't buy it yesterday, I feel sorry for you, but I'd still grab the demo and try it out.

Saints Row: The Third is so damn entertaining. Great game so far. Should be a fun 10-15 hours. Very light-hearted take on GTA. Started it just a while ago.

5.5 hours in: Saints Row 3 can't get much more absurd than it already. Think I'm about 2/3 done with the game already. Still fun, at least. Haven't done any side quests or messed with character customization too much though in SR3. Never really cared for those except in Skyrim. The physics engine reminds me of the one in the Gangstar series on the iOS.

My hitman absolution is coming in (for free thanks to FMA). Can't wait. Few more days.

Just beat Saints Row 3 today. Played through the alternate ending too. Definitely one of the best experiences I've had on the XBOX so far. There just aren't any open-world games as bizarre as this one. Took 13 hours. Doubt I'll touch the game again, but I felt like it was a rewarding experience. The game just had so much character to it. Going to try to run through Dishonored before the new semester starts. Not sure I'll have time.

Real weight to weapons and possibly the smartest world map in any PS3/360 game. There you go

I'm really enjoying it. I never really got into the series before, so all of the things people like to moan about don't really affect me. One of the few games that can make me go back and repeat a level 10+ times the moment I finish each one. It kinda reminds me of Mission Impossible on the N64, that was awesome too.

Edit: I used the word 'really' way too often just then.

I really enjoyed Hitman Absolution..There were even times where i just said heck with the stealth and went guns blazeing..My favorite will always be contracts tho(most difficult of the series IMO)...but they were all enjoyable to play.

What did you use before? Component cables? Btw, Halo 4 renders at 720P doesn't it? The Xbox only upscales to the output settings.
