Gaming thread?

Postby superguavaguy » 03 Nov 2011, 00:26

I was wondering if it would be worth starting a dedicated gaming thread/sub-thread? I just bought Uncharted 3 and am loving it. Anyone else playing?

I had some free time and picked up Shadow of the Colossus to play it a bit. Takes some patience, but I like it.

I use to spend ungodly amounts of time playing COD:Black Ops online. I bought an Xbox solely for COD. That's the only game I have(besides the two that came with the console). I have since successfully quit the game.

Battlefield 3 just came out and I'm contemplating whether to buy it or not. I played the demo and wasn't really feeling it. It was really slow and tedious. But maybe the actual game is different than the demo.

The new COD is coming out this month so that should be interesting. Gotta decide which game to get.

Finished 2 on Monday night, got the Collector's Edition of 3 sitting next to me at work waiting to be taken home.

Hoping that it's more of the same but better than 2 (Like LittleBigPlanet 2)

Don't know if I'll play it just yet, 70 percent of the way through Red Dead so want to get that finished before losing myself in another game (immersing myself in RDR was the reason it took me so long to finish Uncharted 2, despite going online with it every weekend)
If you doubt this is possible, how is it there are PYGMIES + DWARFS??

I'm playing World of Tanks, having a blast with the SU-26 and T-46, but getting nailed hard when I use the T-50 as I work towards the T-50-2.

I now have Space Marine, but won't get to play for another week.

I've started rushing through Mass Effect 2 in order to be prepared for the 3.
