Titanfall does look cool. I'd never play it because it's multiplayer only, but looks like fun for those who likes those types of games.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is replacing ICO on PS+ today. Can't believe they are giving it away on + so shortly after release and after so much praise. It's supposedly a very touching story.

Beat FourSwords adventures. It was a fun game. Not the typical Zelda game, but still fun. It was nice for me because I just had to focus on one board at a time, and could save and stop afterwards.

So I'm going to do a runthrough of the original one since I haven't played it in like 10 years, and then move onto Skyward Sword.

I fell asleep playing Brothers last night. Woke up in my chair this morning with a blanket over me. :lol:

I really like that game. Graphics are so pretty and the mechanics are really good. I'll continue today.

Brothers is $13.99 for PC via Steam. You do need a controller, however.

Yes. Left stick for older brother. Right stick for younger brother. L2 and R2 are used to perform actions. L1/R1 are for camera spin. Those are all the controls.

I'm currently playing COD black ops, fifa 2012, and nhl 2012. I dont think I ever need to buy another game, those are the best ever.

If I met the guy in charge of making Brothers, I would punch him in the face. I am not going to say more, not to spoil the 'fun' for the rest of you. There is also no replay value, as it's basically a 'story' so you play/watch once and you're done.

Yep. I remember doing it for other NES games too.

Assassin's creed 4 is definitely my favorite of the AC games.

Correct. For such a long game, it had no save or password features. So if you wanted to beat it, you had to either a) set aside a day or two or b) pause it over night and hope your mom didn't shut it off or the power go out.

It was maddening.

I enjoyed Brothers, but it's definitely a polarizing game. I think it needs to be played in one sitting to get the most out of it.

Do not click this unless you played and completed the game.
Spoiler:
Games are supposed to make one feel good. The older brother's death was too pucked up for me. I was sad after I finished the game. That's BS.

Does anyone know if there are carrying cases available for the 3DSXL, preferably holding some games as well? I looked around a bit in the past, but didn't find anything really... At least not that explicitly stated that it could handle the XL.

It's a pain to take it with me places without one...

There are a couple of good ones that I have found for my son. The first one holds 8 games plus the 3DSxl made by "Power A" but I cant find a listing for it. I found it at Toys-r-us for $11.99(black, light blue, or pink) or $14.99 in red with a Mario design on it, which I was able to find a link to.

Also there is also a great hard-shell case made by "Power A" that holds 6 games and comes in a few different colors.

p.s.
I liked the hard-shell case a lot better but my son had trouble opening it and the latch broke from him forcing it open a few too many times.
