I guess I worded that wrong. I am using a set of headphones hooked into the receiver. Not a set of Turtle Beaches or anything like that hooked directly to the PS3. Either way, I think the volume controls are lacking in BF3. COD has separate controls for increasing each type of sound, I can't find that option in BF3.

I finally tried MW3...took me 2 rounds to get back into it (probably because I haven't played MW2 for a month) but then got the top spot on domination

The new cloud save feature is great so now if I ever get MW3 my progress will transfer easily.

Been playing Arkham City on the PC. Really like the game. Graphic's look really good. No issues with bugs. Finished the main story line with Batman and then finished Cat Woman's storyline. Now I'm just finishing up getting all of the trophies. One of the few games, I've actually finished. MGS4 was the other one. I still haven't finished Mirror's Edge, another really good game.

I was on MW3 for a bit this morning, gave up when I kept loosing connection and the servers kept switching.

Finally gave up and went to go do shit.

Online gaming is a huge time suck. Not as bad in the winter when the bike is stowed but in the summer I don't even look at the PC after 8pm or I'm lost.

You wont see the glaring problems (which still exist) until higher tier tanks. I am hooked on this game, but they seriously need to fix the match maker. As a tier 5 or 6 tank there is no way in hell you should end up in battles with tier 9 and 10's, you wont even get a shot off.

On the flip side when your the one in the tier 10 its somewhat satisfying.

The only thing that is pissing me off right now is all the obvious newbies trying the all-in tank rush right up the middle every stinking game. On the other hand, when I end up in a battle where everyone has an idea of what to do, where to go and how to work together....it's magic. Had one battle last night that we won 15-2 (and I wasn't one of the 2). I need to find a clan to join to make this a little more consistent.

Noob rush wont go away till after the holidays unfortunatelly.

Ive gone in battles that I have had 8 kills, which is over half their team, and it wasnt garbage picking, and still lost

Unfortunatelly not all people are created equal and there are some really thick fucks out there.

Im currently on a Hiatis from the game for this reason. They have created the basework for a fantastic product, but they need to crack down on the shinanigans in the game and decide if they want to keep the people they have, and the biggest thing is fix the MM.

That's about as nerdy as one could get.

I've got $25 to burn on Amazon, I could maybe go $10-15 over that. Somebody suggest me a PS3 game that isn't Skyrim or Fallout 3.

Thanks guys... I think I might splurge and get Arkham Asylum and Assassin's Creed II. I've got a hard time picking games, so many good ones, and I don't mind being a couple years behind if it saves me a few bucks

No PS3 collection is complete without Little Big Planet 1 or 2, preferably both...
