Sold my L.A. Noire and bought Heavy Rain and a couple of others. So far Heavy Rain is much better than L.A. Noire. (SPOILERS, Read at own risk!) I thought the part in L.A. Noire when you switched character in the 3rd act was boring. The ending was forced and didn't make any sense. I had a wee premenition that they main character died as John Marston in Red Dead Redemption.

Who's the best NPC to have following you around in Fallout 3? I've got this chick from the brotherhood decked out with a sweet plasma rifle and she's doing some work (but also stealing a lot of my precious exp)

The one you have is the best, essentially.  Fawkes is also great because he can wield energy weapons and big guns.  Dogmeat is really great because of a glitch where when he levels up with you, he gets way too much of a health boost (though one of the later expansions corrects this error).  Sargeant RL-3 is pretty nice because of his built-in flamethrower, but you have to be of Neutral karma to get him and have to find him wandering around with that merchant, which can be annoying to track down sometimes.

I had that chick from the Brotherhood then i got ambushed in Vault 87 or something and she disappeared! FUCK! But i did get fawkes in return and a shitload of enclave power armor...so yeah whatevs.

Milk Fallout 3 for as much fun as you can, it will only whet your appetite more for the wonders of New Vegas.  Your mind will most likely detonate.

Fallout 3 is one of the greatest games I've ever played. I'm jealous of anyone who gets to play it for the first time.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Heavy Rain is way, way creepier. Put it this way. If L.A. Noire was a Michael Mann film, Heavy Rain is David Lynch.

nah, Heavy Rain is a generic hollywood thriller, but it has nothing to do with David Lynch. i've heard Alan Wake does, though.

I don't envy those who began with Fallout 3 because it is jampacked with references to Fallout and New Vegas is filled to the brim with allusions to Fallout 2.  They're still fun, but it's like putting training wheels back on your bike to replay Fallout and Fallout 2 now, they're both dated and old hat.  They're still fun if you grew up playing them, much like Dungeons and Dragons, as a grown up you will lack the capacity to fully immerse yourself in it if you didn't grow up with it.

I doubt that was a nightmare compared to making the nightmare "Duke Nukem Forever" for 15 years.

did you read the article?
nobody expected a masterpiece from duke nukem. i feel bad for the programmers involved in that game.

i saw castlevania lords of shadow for cheap yesterday , and bioshock 2 even cheaper .
i'm not very interested in bioshock 2 (i'm not a fan of the colour scheme), but if it's a good game i can be persuaded. castlevania looks interesting... which one would you pick?

so, bioshock 2 isn't worth less than 20 bucks then?

It's definitely worth $20. Most video games are.

i've been playing all the games i hadn't finished. yesterday i finished assassin's creed 2 (piece of shit game overall, gets shittier towards the end) , and right now i'm playing uncharted 2.  it's fun and cool, and the dialogue's better than most games. drake's fun to play.
but portal 2 will be hard to top.
