Showed way too much self-control tonight. Went out with a list of gaming items that was 3x longer, lol. They were out of stock on quite a few other games I wanted. That's probably for the best though.

Decided to go with Dishonored instead of ACIII. The setting in ACIII is so cool, but I feel like it'd play too similar to the other games.

Insane amount of deals on AAA titles from the past year just popped up. They're all $10 a pop..Skyrim, Max Payne 3, etc.

Added to my purchased list: Witcher 2, Saints Row: The Third, Ghost Recon Future Soldier. Came out to $32.43 with tax. That's just insane.

I am not buying another game for the 360 until the AAA titles pick up again in Feb/Mar: Dead Space 3, GoW: Judgment, Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite, etc. The list of 360 games I haven't inserted into the console once is now past 10. Deja vu, iOS.

So who's excited for Far Cry 3 next week? The reviews are absolutely smashing it and I'm beginning to think it may be the open-world FPS I've always wanted. I enjoy the mechanics of FPS but the linearity always sucks, and BLOPS 2 providing branching paths doesn't cut it. I can't wait to get out into that lush jungle environment and start playing it the way -I- want to. Speaking of which, how freaking big is that place?! Ten times bigger than FC2 apparently, and that was huge already. I'm all about freedom in games, and this is pushing my buttons. Jeeps, boats, jetskis, hang gliders, explosives, fire, platforming sections, stealth, guns blazing... the options are killing me.

I'm very excited for Far Cry 3. I loved Far Cry 2 and was able to overlook it's flaws, unlike a lot of people. From what I've seen of Far Cry 3, it looks absolutely incredible. This'll be the first new retail game I will have bought for my PS3 since Skyrim, over a year ago. I cannot wait.

Here's a good gameplay video. It doesn't contain any story spoilers but if you want to avoid seeing any of the new features, weapons, vehicles etc then I suggest you don't watch it.

I'm gonna have to save that video until next week, I haven't actually read any full reviews yet because I can't stand the excitement

I thought FC2 was great too, but the weapons breaking, respawning patrols and malaria were still the main things I wanted changed or removed. As long as they were sorted I knew I'd be happy with FC3, everything else is just the icing on the cake. I'm liking the greener environment too, FC2 was beautiful but you just can't ignore this colour!

FC3 definitely looks sick. Not sure if I'll enjoy it more than the Borderlands games though.

I love Borderlands for the co-op and the RPG elements, but in terms of shooter mechanics it doesn't really come close to... pretty much any other modern FPS. It's closer to the likes of old school Doom-like shooters with it's arcade style.

Possibly the best launch trailer I've ever seen.
