Definitely looking forward to the new one.
If you liked the first two I recommend Brotherhood and Revelations. The story gets pretty cool, but man... Being able to recruit, train, and use assassins just makes the game 10 times more badass!

I'm not seeing any option for System Link play in any of the menus. Maybe it recognizes it after you hook them up.

I'm not sure.

Seriously. The series only gets better with the last 2 installments. Plus the multiplayer in them is very addictive.

I love XBLA, Mark of the Ninja is great title but if you're unsure, deals on big games will happen, usually 50% off, just be patient

Double Dragon Neon is another great one to wait for

Yea Mark of the Ninja is the one I was talking about. The demo was really fun but it seemed pricey. Ill probably end up waiting for a sale

I recently got introduced to the awesomeness that is Fat Princess, but I don't own a PS3, and it's not available on PC. Can anyone recommend a similar game for PC?

Well that addition and the multiplayer is cool... I don't think either Brotherhood or Revelations were up to par with 2.

3 is the big team, and Ubi Soft's biggest project ever, so I have high hopes.

The more I play EASHL on NHL 13 the more I hate the game. It's full of random BS and isn't rewarding. Scoring is a complete fluke, goalies are simultaneously phenomenal and aweful, and don't get me started on the poke check.

I also found I had to turn down the CPU's hitting. It seemed everytime I got hit I was getting steam rolled. Whenever I go to hit a guy it's always the softest hit ever.

btw if anyone was wondering about system linking 2 xbox's for nhl 13 we ended up signing into 1 gamertag on each xbox and the other 3 ppl went in as guests and just challenged other gamertag to online game. worked fairly well, tiny bit of lag but overal was great.

Thats because unlike most new releases it used the full capacity of the disc. Very few games use the full ~50 GB that a blu-ray is capable of holding.

Same. Also needed to turn the Puck Control slider up because every time one of my guys tries to battle in front of the net and I pass them the puck, all it takes is a slight bump from the defence and they lose the puck.

It's really strange. I played NHL12 up until a few weeks ago, I didn't get bored of it. I haven't played NHL13 since Monday. I can't put my finger on it but the game just got boring really fast. If I tweak the settings enough I'm sure I can make it better, but I'd rather just play the damn game.

Your experiencing NHL fatigue. Mine came with NHL 12. It starts with the excitement of the brand new game wearing off. The faults start becoming noticable, emotions run through peaks and valleys, eventually the negative outweighs the positive.

To make matters worse on old NHL games watching hockey in real life would get me jonezing to play NHL 11 or 12. But with the Oilers being a joke even my interest in dynasty mode and such was starting to wane so the push I needed to keep going back was fading.

Id imagine its even worse with a lockout. I wouldnt be surprised if you go a month without playing

I just started playing MGS4 for the first time. The first metal gear I have ever played actually (never had Playstation or PS2). Normally an Xbox guy, but i picked up a PS3 last Xmas and got MGS4 for $5.00 out of a bargain bin at Staples around the same time. Tried it around Xmas and couldn't bring myself to sit through all the cut scenes so I put it on the shelf until last night. So glad I decided to give it a go again after reading your post. I played through the 1st Act and half of Act 2 last night. Great Fun. Reminds me of earlier Splinter Cell games a little. Best $5.00 game I've ever played.
Now, to continue Act 2...

There are games that take up 12 MB that still hold up better than most games released today.

I actually tried playing early this morning while I was doing some laundry. I figured it might be fun to add Seth Jones into the game, maybe Connor McDavid. You can create them, sure, and you can add them to their junior clubs, but they won't be in the draft. Which is really stupid because I'm playing Be a GM, I'm not playing CHL games.

I did a fair amount of tweaking to the settings and found I was having a lot more fun. Turn puck control up a bit, nerf the goalies just a tad, turn down hitting power and a few other tweaks. EA really does need to patch the game though, it's stupid that I have to do all this work just to make it playable. It's not a horrible game, don't get me wrong, but it needs a patch.

NYR just offered a first rounder for Horcoff. Same day NJ offers Clarkson for a 2nd and a 3rd.

What a steal.

i think i found a slider set that works for me. Unfortunately i get get around the biggest issue..which is my defense being a bunch of derps. I have a defense apparently made up of all Cam Barkers.

Perhaps we should share our slider settings? Ill post mine. in a bit or later tonight.
