My favorite sword was by far the Forgotten Vran Sword, I'm going to replay now on Roche's side and in Dark mode. The amount of content is just unreal..can't praise the game enough, I highly recommend.

Kudos for Dark Souls.

Anyone picking up MGR: Revengeance? I quite enjoyed the demo, Platinum have some fantastic action games under their belt such as Bayonetta and Vanquish (and depending on how you look at it, Viewtiful Joe and Okami too). Right now I'm not sure of any other developer who can consistently throw out action of such high quality.

Plus it gives me something of a Ninja Gaiden vibe, which used to be my favourite action series until 3 ruined it... so this is kinda making up for my loss.

This game is amazing, indeed. The writing, the characters, the choices are all top-notch. It makes the Elder Scrolls V look like a kids game in comparison. I'm excited for the third installment as well; supposedly they are announcing it on February 5th. Good luck with Dark mode by the way.The dragon at the end is a real pain - it took me way too many tries. But yeah, you're making me feel like playing the game again, although I need to download it again because I accidentally deleted it off my PC. I guess I could just play it on Xbox (yes, I bought the game twice, I like it that much) but I prefer it on PC for the fancy graphics. =)

Nice, guess I'll play Witcher 2 next. Haven't even unboxed my copy of the enhanced edition. Got it in Nov. Should finish Dishonored in a week or so.

I preordered walking dead survival instinct. Hopefully it's great.

The early word on the Walking Dead Survival Instinct game is that it's atrocious. You might want to cancel that pre-order and wait for reviews.

It's not.

At least not for $60

And believe me no ones a bigger walking dead fan than me, comics, TVshow, games... But this particular game's not looking that spectacular

I like the artwork to be honest, and the way they said the game will play.

Definately looks fun, I'm just not spending $60

But who knows.

Anyone getting Dead Space 3? Pretty mediocre reviews all around.
