Just bought a PS3 ... rookie questions

Hope this is the right place to ask...
So, I just got a PS3 friday, mostly for movies, but also bought NHL2010 ...
The last console I had was sega dreamcast And I barely used it, gaming was never my thing... But, I'd like to give it a shot again, seems a lot better now!

Basic questions:

1. where can I rent games online, that will ship to Canada? Gamefly doesn't ship to Canada... I found gameaccess.ca ; anyone ever use them?

2. I really suck bad at nhl2010, getting use to the controls .... Right now just playing against the computer until I get use to it... Is there a way to play against other beginners online?

3. Once I get better I obviously want to play against other ppl ... I am curious, what's your "nhl2010" story .. against who do you typically play? how long and how many times per week ?

4. Any good recommendations for fun games that are not that complicated? (anything with lots of shooting and blood?)

You should have posted this in the geek emporium but i'll answer your questions.

1. Not sure.

2. Play unranked matches online.

3. I play OTP. Funnest thing in NHL 10 by far.

Ask the Geek Emporium

Practice, practice, practice and I don't know if Gamefly ships to Canada or not

Buy Assassin's Creed II. Very fun, lots of blood, quite easy, excellent graphics, killer story, etc. Not complicated. Read up on it.

you ****ed up...

should have got xbox...lol

Seirously, get God of War 3... don't screw around

Assassins Creed is okay but WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY too repetative for my liking...

If your into RPG get Fallout 3. Best. Game. Of. All. Time.

GTA 4 is a must

NHL 10 is great, just use quick match settings, play a season first so you get controls down, than go online and get stomped...lol

Assassin's Creed 1 is waaaaaaaayyy repetitive, Assassin's Creed 2 is a work of art.

Assassin's Creed 2 is also way too complicated for someone who hasn't played games since the Clinton administration.

I'd probably recommend Uncharted 2 or Modern Warfare 2 for you.

definitely give Uncharted and Uncharted 2 a go.

MLB The Show is also the best baseball series available anywhere.

No it's not. I wouldn't even say top 10.

But if you want some good shooters for PS3, get the Uncharted games, Killzone 2, and/or Resistance 2.

Star Ocean ftw, COD MW2 ftw, NHL 10 ftw

I'm not a big fan of God of War style games, find they have little replay value and are too short usually.
