Yeah I ordered Max Payne 3 for 20 and Witcher 2 for 10 from GameStop for cyber Monday, should be here next week. I was gonna get far cry 3 but I decided I got too much with college apps and stuff to really play anything, just took advantage of deals, so ill pick that up Jan 3rd after I turn in my stuff, then dead space 3 and GTA V for the future, that about it, I haven't even played halo or cod though but whatever AC3 was good but ill catch up over the summer.

P.S. really really excited for FC3 gonna be sick, one of favorite series, wish I could get on launch but it all good. Going to Stanford or Northwestern seems like a much better option than just copping out and going to Ohio State to play FC3 LOL

I've got Forza Horizon coming from the Microsoft Store for $15 (Black Friday deal). I also grabbed Fable The Journey for $10 from same. Figured for that price it's worth a shot.

The fact that I actually sat through the entire 10 minute thing without being bored is a testament either to my laziness or their aptitude at producing a trailer.

I've been playing some Far Cry 3 today (on my PS3). I've only played the tutorial missions and had a wonder around some of the islands, but I'm super impressed by it, it's easily my favourite game of the year. I must get back to playing it again. Hope you've been enjoying it, MidianGTX.

Just got the online portion of my BF shopping shipped. Now, I literally have 10 unboxed AAA titles from the past year. The iOS really changes your buying habits when it comes to gaming software..for the worse. I used to never buy new console games unless I only had 1-2 games to finish, lol.

Holy effing ess. I've been playing the crap out of it for twelve hours straight. The only flaws I can find with it are so pointless they're not worth repeating. Clearing out an enemy outpost with a bow from a hill 50 meters away is one of the gaming highlights of my life. It's the first game this year that's truely exceeded my expectations, this is top list stuff.

I don't know the other one. I'd prefer NFS, but I don't like realism.

NFS Most Wanted still isn't anywhere near as good as Burnout Paradise, so if you don't have that yet, make it a priority and forget the fact it's an older game.
