I put something like 80 hours into it and I still only have two of the quest lines done (main one and College of Winterhold). I stopped playing it after Christmas because I'd never get the chance to play my new games if I did everything in it. Gonna go back to it soon though. Still many many things to do in it.

Skyrim. But since that's what everyone else is saying, L.A. Noire was a great game, and I say it is a very underrated game amongst the internet community.

Another question...which games is everyone anticipating for 2012? Mass Effect 3 for me for sure. After playing the demo, I'm actually quite interested in Kingdoms Of Amalur too and The Last Of Us is looking like it's gonna be pretty sweet.

I would totally trade my 360 for a PS3 if I didn't have such good original Xbox games. If only PS3 played those

I've been wanting to get Battlefield for a while. I've heard horrible things about the campaign but I'm quite willing to just completely ignore it if the multiplayer's as good as it usually is.

The Witcher 2 was by far and away the best game of last year.

Game I'm most looking forward to this year? Either Future Soldier or Bioshock Infinite. I'd say Diablo 3 but it might be twenty years before it comes out.

Oh yeah, I'm back in the homeland!

Where have you been wandering this time, peasant?

I have so wanted to play The Witcher 2 but my PC would explode and cry if I even attempted it. Apparently it's getting a 360 port which is all fine and nice but WHERE'S MY GODAMN PS3 PORT!?!?

lol my new custom built PC chews through the Witcher 2 without a problem. I played it a little, but I'm going through the first Witcher game before hand. Loving it so far. Also, can't wait to get Skyrim on my PC and get the creation kit.

Godamnit if I had the money, I would so be a PC gamer. It's undeniably superior to consoles.

It's incredibly affordable to built your own PC, I've spend probably 700 on my rig right now, and it's already more powerful than about anything you buy pre-made. Just save money and buy parts piece by piece and assemble it yourself. Spend a little time learning about how to build one, it's INCREDIBLY easy

Yeah I've heard that said before but I'm a little scared to do it since I'm pretty much totally useless in anything to do with assembling/fixing things.

Its completely and utterly not difficult at all. You only really need a few things

-case
-hard drive
-motherboard
-Graphics card
-power supply
-RAM
-DVD drive

And literally all of those things just plug into each other. There can be some compatibility issues but you can, like I did for my first build, use Newegg.com's combo deals to get a good set together that is compatible. From there you literally just plug shit in. It's just like plugging in your power cable to your xbox. There is no way to fuck it up because it really only goes together one way. Even if you are worried, they have an instructional video series on how to build a PC and it will tell you everything. When I got all the parts, I had the whole thing put together in probably a half hour.
From there, you just install your operating system, look for driver updates and you are good to go. If you ever want to build a pc just let me know and I can even help you figure it all out.

Does your computer tap directly into your brain? I can only assume this is how it works without a CPU, lol.

BTW Darkflame if you do build your own your biggest outlay will be your graphics card. But don't buy the most expensive one you can afford then get everything else cheap: your power supply, cooling etc won't support it then.

I found it best to scan youtube for some how to videos before engaging in the process.

After which it is a breeze just like Axe said. I to can offer assistance and am familiar with some decent UK based sites for purchasing parts with free delivery etc.

It really is worth it in the end Very Happy

Hmm....I may do it once I have the time and money. I'd really love to have a properly powerful gaming PC.

Derp.

I even proof read that to make sure I didn't miss anything! But really, it's a breeze. Totally worth it, and completely rewarding.

I may make an attempt during the summer. I'm gonna have basically 4 months of doing absolutely nothing so I've decided I'm gonna be productive on at least a few things. Namely getting a job and improving my guitar technique, and if I can spare the money, I may just go about building a PC. Very Happy

Battlefield 3 or MW3? thats a big ass dilema on the fps scene.


IMO Both are great.
(im a COD Fanboy but also i loved BF2 and currently im getting more into BF3 since i prestiged 4 on MW3)

Skyrim is awesome but Didn't had that much anticipation so i must point towards the mainstream masses and say MW3 and Killzone 3

In my country Infamous 2 was a huuuuge releaase and everyone expected it due to the awesomenes of the first one.

also Uncharted 3 was big, but dissapointed a lot of folks here since its the same shit over and over the first and 2nd one...

I'll admit Uncharted 3 wasn't as good as the second, but that'd be fucking impressive if it was and it was still excellent. Yeah, it was pretty much more of the same, but that's not really a bad thing when it comes to Uncharted for me. So long as the amazing set piece moments and stuff keep it going I'll be interested.
