    Turtles In Time
    Pixeljunk Monsters

    I Liked the first Resistance game....not far into it something happens that lets your character recharge health like in Halo, which makes it a lot easier. Resistance 2.....I dunno....its OK I guess, but I couldn't get into it for some reason.
    I'm staying away from the Mega Man games ... too damn hard for me. heh Might read up on Pain, and I tried the demo for the Star Trek game on the 360 and ... yeah ... *shudder*

    I've already got Turtles in Time, Pixel Junk Monsters is friggin' awesome (from the demo anyway). And I already snagged Pixel Junk Shooter when it was on sale. :P

    Still kinda wondering about Fat Princess, haven't dropped the money on that one yet. From what I've heard the matchmaking with that game is non existent. And, even though I don't have hardly anyone on my friend's list on the PS3 it'd be kinda nice to easily pick up a game with them. Or maybe they fixed that or something, because it was a somewhat older episode of a podcast I heard about the matchmaking thing on. I dunno, I'll probably end up getting it anyway.

    I don't even like to do the fighting in that game, I just run around and chop up wood and rocks and stuff. lol

    *EDIT* Just watched the little preview video for Pain ... kinda lame that there isn't a trial but whatever. My one question is ... "What the fuck?" hahaha

    If you like fighting games the Super Street Fighter Part 2 trio HD Blah Wornder Women Remix is a pretty good game. I like to think im good at Street Fighter but when I go online on that game it get my as handed to me. Also High Velocity Bowling is a fun family game. Lastly theres a game called Zombie Apocalypse that's kind of like a Smash TV game thats decent.

    I've got SSF2 HD Remix or whatever it is on the 360 (system I have the fight stick for hehe) ... might have to give high velocity bowling a try but family games are kinda "meh" since I'm the only one who ever plays the thing.

    And Zombie Apocalypse friggin' ROCKS ... gonna have to try that multiplayer sometime. Really need to snag Afterburner Climax sometime as well.

    To me 9 and 10 aren't too bad, more cheap deaths than hard. Mega Man 3 was legitimately hard, these just have quite a few cheap death areas. Learn where those are and you're good.

    Oh, and 10 has a beginners mode that makes it a lot easier.

    Pain is good for mindless fun. The game itself is cheap but if you want extra levels and characters the price adds up.

    I'm listening to the brentalfloss CD which has a few Mega Man songs with lyrics....funnier than hell.

    "My name, is Mega Man, I got a mother****in gun for a hand!"

    "I am also known as the Blue Bomber, I can shoot the legs off Jeffery Dahmer."

    Just got Modnation Racers, and yeah. This thing is AWESOME. Fast paced gameplay, excellent drifting mechanics, kickass powerups, flawless online play and a track/kart/character editor that is second to NONE. It does have it's problems though. In single player the A.I. is just fucking BRUTALLY difficult. Every race in single player is just balls to the wall due to the intense difficulty.

    And the load times are atrocious. I literally sat there for close to a full minute loading a race, which is ridiculous considering it has a mandatory hard drive install that takes FOREVER it seems like. Now, I have heard they're releasing a patch to try to help the load times, so hopefully that's true.

    And the best part, one of the characters someone made is Mario. And it LOOKS like goddamn Mario (though he's wearing a ball cap. But oh well.), it's great. :P Also, I saw Iron Man and Spider-Man in there. And a couple of the karts I saw that people have made : The A-Team van, and the Mystery Machine.

    And (as of this writing) there's a "Ferrarri F1 F2010" that looks kinda neat, but I know nothing about the cars. These are just the "top karts/characters" in the hub world they have.

    This game is DEFINITELY a must get for ANYONE with a PS3 ... this is the single BEST HD kart racing game out there. Period. The severe difficulty of the single player races may turn some people off ... but I personally love it. No race is easy, you're feverishly battling for first place, and it's awesome. The load times though ... they're not bad enough to kill the game by any means, but they are WAAAAAAAY too fucking long.

    I was always kind of questioning my PS3 purchase because of the lack of good exclusives that make the machine worth buying ... Uncharted is good storywise but terrible gunplay ... Killzone 2 is fucking awesome but I could have lived without it ... Little Big Planet is great, but trying to find good levels people have made is a nightmare ... Heavy Rain is billed as an interactive movie, but as a movie it would've bombed. And I never was THAT much into the God of War games. Awesome games, and those games on the PS2 REALLY pushed the limits of that system, but the environmental puzzles annoy the shit outta me. But god dammit, this game has turned me around. It's just that good. :P

    But if you're playing in the old 480i/480p like I am ... be prepared to REALLY strain to read the text. It's just a blurred mess. :\ And I *DO* fault the game for that, at LEAST they could've given the option to raise the font size like 3D Dot Game Heroes does. Oh well, not a biggie.

    So far from what I've played, intense single player due to the insane difficulty and awesome online play as well as an INSANELY deep editor for just about everything. Yeah. Buy this.

    I actually really like the God of War collection, Bladestorm, Sacred 2, Rise of the Argonauts, Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce, and the downloadable new Vandal Hearts game whose title is escaping me. I will grant you that outside of god of war the rest are multiplatform so maybe my opinion is worthless since you seem to want exclusives and I don't really go for the big time time games much and stick to my semi-crappy but fun side games. Just thought i'd offer my 2 cents.
    Check out my GG auctions for loads of great collections and games in general. http://www.gamegavel.com/sites/thegamebaron/

    Also you may want to look at some of the PS1 classics, some (not all) of the games are cheaper to get this way than actually hunting for the originals, like Final Fantasy 7 and 8, and also Tactics. Lots of good games in the classics section.
