Appreciated, Jeffy. DIII is his gig to which I hold no interest. This break'll do a body (or two) good, believe me.

I got Max Payne 3 for my birthday, probably 2/3 or 3/4 of the way through it already (though I wish it would go on forever). The game is both gorgeous and disgusting. I'm really blown away, I'm already stoked to beat it and then play it again on a higher difficulty

I always liked the Max Payne games. Great interface, gameplay and graphics.

Pretty busy gaming after a long while, since I got the new gpu I played/finished GTA4, sniper elite 2, battlefield3, starcraft 2, NFS shift, skyrim and I'm getting ready for Diablo3...

I hadn't played in ultra settings for many years, some of those new games are just amazing in ultra quality, especially Battlefield is worth replaying in casual mode just to look at the levels' design and detail...

By the way the radeon 6870 was recommended at tomshardware as best below $180 and it truly delivers powerful graphics easily at the highest settings... Currently running on a slow(ish) i3 with 8gb of ram but I have no problem running everything at max...

It is legos. Once you get over the old-school graphics and blocks you'll soon realize how brilliant that game is. You can build... anything, aircraft carriers, replica of fantasy places (Middle Earth), your own neighborhood. Only limit is your imagination and time.

Diablo III is a lot of run with 3 other friends. My only complaint is that even in SP, games are "online". So you ping Blizzard's servers even if you're not playing multi-player. I don't think you can even play without an internet connection. This causes some rubberbanding even in SP. Still, it's a lot of fun even in SP.

Found this game on Steam a few days ago: http://shootmanyrobots.com/

So far tons of fun with a plot as complicated as the game name suggests. Side scroll action, tons of guns and odd outfits. I've only tried single player so far but up to 4 people can play. If anyone else likes mindless robot destroying action it is fun, so far.

Yeah, the latest "trend" from all the top game houses is obligatory signing in to on-line accounts, however, there are ways to work around that "creatively"...

Co-op mode in diablo must be life-sucking...

Co-op gets crazy. Especially when everyone is Lvl 20 and up. I've heard hardcore is even crazier. It's a good way to lvl up. Instead of slugging it through SP, you can advance in rank a lot faster. With one sitting, I jumped 2-3 lvl's which might normally take a day to advance 1 lvl.

I can say that any game that has to be connected to a server, just to play in single player mode, is one that I will never buy. I have played Blizzard's games a lot over the years, going way, way back, but if that's their new way of doing things, they'll never see another dime from me.

I haven't had a lot of time lately, but have been picking up the occasional old school game from GOG.com. Cheap, and there are some classics on there that I probably own somewhere, but are typically hard or impossible to get them running on modern hardware. GOG takes the work out of it for you. I can have more fun playing Syndicate than with most of the new stuff out there.

I think you're missing out then. Diablo III is a lot of fun especially with 3 other friends or even 3 other strangers. Even Sp is fun though.

If I do that then I need to use up a by 2 get 1 free coupon I have at Gamestop and the 2 I'm grabbing are Skyrim and MW3 (been playing it too much so I can't wait any longer) what other newish games should I look at?

Cry I have no friends

Since it appears that online multiplayer is the future of gaming I think it's time I added some friends to the list or whatever it is. I have a PS3 so I am on PlayStation Network as Beez620. That is also my handle on Social Club (some sort of thing for games made by Rockstar). Send me a PM with your screename or add me through PSN. Thanks and happy gaming.
