Been stuck on Dead Island for the past couple weeks going through it again to get all the skulls and max level. Bashin zombies is fun.

Have any of you guys had this kind of problem? My PS3 chokes on CoD: World at War. Played almost all the way through the game, then didn't play it for a few days, and now it just freezes up solid before you even get through the title screen. Exchanged the disc at the store and still have the same problem. Now, I'd assume my PS3 was FUBAR, but it plays every other game I've tried just fine I deleted all the CoD files and installed the update again but it's still screwed. Won't break my heart to not play that game any more, but I'm really hoping that this isn't a sign of things to come.

10hrs into ME3

So far exceeded expectations.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!

Why the fuck is the game pushing me to have a gay relationship? My male Shepard is apparently eye candy for the gay shuttle pilot but cannot get any female action.

Reaver vs Thresher maw battle=epic. On the 24" Dell at max graphics it was unreal. I wish I could watch it again.

Mordin dying was NOT cool. He was easily my favorite character after Tali. His quips, songs and fastidiousness will be missed.

"Flammable! Or Inflammable! Can't remember! Doesn't matter!" as he's frying bad guys will be an all-time classic. I used to pick him just to hear that in fights.

Fantastic game so far. I feel there is so much more to go, haven't even gotten to the Geth and Tali/Mirandia/etc yet.

Charlie sheen aint got shit on Skyrim

For the past few days I was wondering what happened to Lidia. I lost her when I went down a cliff traveling cross country and never seen her again.

So I decide I'd best get hitched so I can have a place to sell my crap and get half her shop money

After the wedding I tell her to live in my house in Whiterun. I go back there to unload some crap and hear a door open and my wife say "I'm going to find out who did this"

I go upstairs and open Lidia's room and there she is dead.

So I strip off all her armor and sell it to the wife.

So I have a wife that's perfectly fine with me having a dead hooker in the closet. She even checks to make sure the cobwebs aint gettin too bad in there.

Now that there is WINNING!!

I duno if it really is, but I had te same problem with mine where it'd do weird shit like that before it went kaput.

Now I have to pop it open once every few weeks to reflow the solder on the GPU/VPU.

This thing is only about a year old so I'll cross my fingers and hope it's just some stupid software problem.

As an aside, I am playing through Killzone 3 Move again. It's a bit less frustrating the second time

So what did you think of ME3?

[spoiler]I was disappointed. The RPG aspect fell away. ME2 was borderline...but ME3 was a straight first person shooter with a few dialogue choices. I did not want to play Halo or Modern Warfare, then to top it off the controls were clunky and unresponsive.

The story was shit. Soon as Earth is attacked they happen to find a super weapon that the Protheans left on a minor observation outpost on Mars. Lame. Then Hacket is still asking you to check out a possible problem on some random space station when the fucking universe is ending.

To top it off, not a single choice you made through the entire trilogy has any affect on the outcome. It comes down to three lame ass choices give to you by a A.I. god like character that is introduced 30 seconds before the end of the game. [/spoiler]

Does anyone have a buddy code to hook me up with? I need something to tide me over to Diablo 3 release and I always had a soft spot for space (cut my gamer teeth playing the original Elite on a C64...).

Thanks,
