    Default Alrightee ... JUST got a PS3 in the house Thursday ...

    What games should I get for this thing.

    I have :

    Little Big Planet
    Uncharted : Drake's Fortune
    Killzone 2
    Street Fighter 4
    Warhawks
    Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection

    and Pixel Junk Shooter

    Anything else I should get? And before anyone says Heavy Rain ... it's already on my radar ... but I'll be damned if I'm paying 60 bucks for 8 hours of play. And God of War 3 is on my radar ... just gotta get the money.

    Not sure what kind of games you like or what you may already have on other systems, but here are a few: Valkyria Chronicles, BioShock 1 & 2, Uncharted 2 for sure, Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection. If you have a backwards compatible PS3, or haven't picked it up for PS2, I'd also recommend Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection.

    I don't think I'll mess with the multiplatform releases for it too much because, with a few exceptions, they're done better on the 360 anyway. I'm more looking at system exclusives. And unfortunately, mine isn't backwards compatible. But not really a big deal since I've got a PS2 anyway.

    And I've got Pinball Hall of Fame : Gottlieb for the PS2 already. :P

    The first Uncharted was a weird one for me because I played the demo and fucking HATED it. But I think I'm almost halfway through the full game now and ... other than the annoying battles I'm lovin' it. :P

    I hear Blu Ray movies look nice.

    Perhaps that may be a good route for you and your new bitch.

    Just sayin'

    eh, Blu-Ray movies look nice, yeah. If you've got 1080p. If you don't, then they're worthless. heh

    Until I get an HDMI to DVI cable, no go. And even then, I won't be getting 1920x1080. Just below it at 1680x1050.

    Sonics Ultimate Genesis Collection (You should find this for below 20 bucks, worth it, a very nice retro compilation)
    Oblivion: GOTY Edition (My fave RPG this generation, also prolly under 20 bucks if you look hard enough)
    The Orange Box (ALSO under 20 bucks, worth it just for Portal)
    Bioshock (A little short amd easy for an FPS, but an amazing experience)
    Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 (This is the best console strategy game I have played)

    hehe Other than Oblivion and C&C (just not into those types of games) I already have them all. :P Well, I don't have Orange Box anymore (360 version is better than the PS3 one anyway) but I have had all those games that are on it and more for the PC for quite a while.

    Thinking about snagging M.A.G. just to see what it's all about. Hopefully I can find it somewhere relatively cheap.

    Assassins Creed 1 & 2, any Rachet & Clank, Folklore is also pretty cool. That Mod Nation Racers game is coming out soon as well but im not sure if that looks good to me or not.

    Ratchet & Clank is definitely on my radar, but I've tried the original Assassin's Creed ... pretty graphics ... but you do the same 6 things throughout the entire course of the game. Just pathetic. And the DRM on Assassin's Creed 2 has kinda killed it for me.

    Never heard of Folklore, gonna have to check that one out. And I haven't seen ANYTHING on Mod Nation Racers, but everything I've heard about it tells me that I'd probably like it. Hopefully there will at least be a demo of some sort since I didn't have the system for the beta.

    I'm debating on whether or not I wanna get Resistance 2 ... mainly because I played the demo for the first one and got my ass handed to me continuously ... and I'm not THAT bad at first person shooters. :P

    Also thinking about snagging Demon's Souls ... but everything I've read and heard about that game says that it is unforgivably hard. Those controllers are expensive and I have a hell of a temper, so that game may not work out too well with me. hehe

    oh.....if you hit the PSN for games....
    Mega Man 9
    Mega Man 10
    Pain
    Star Trek DAC (it got panned but I like it)
    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.
