It doesn't happen to anybody else because nobody else uses their Wii. Booya!

Just Started Assassin's Creed III. So far, not terribly impressed. But then they've been shilling the game as an adventure where you play as an American Indian bent on seeking revenge for the murder of your mother, and so far I've only been able to play as some British dude.

Got to meet Ben Franklin, tho, so that was cool.

Just got down watching that financial collapse documentary narrated by Matt Damon so now I can't wait until Rainbow Six Patriots comes out.... Many many bankers are killed in that game :pop:

Football Mogul 2012 is pretty fun (and free)

Brady Quinn has been lighting it up for me so far in my first season.

Need to finish Dishonored... thoroughly enjoyed it so far though.

WWE 13 is really fun... Need to start AC3 as well, it's still sitting in the wrapper.

Just not enough time.

started a FIFA season with Vercelli in Serie B on World Class. 5 points through 5 games, scored my first goals in that 5th game in a 2-1 win. I CANNOT score at this difficulty but I'm determined to soldier through and finish the season with at least 10 goals scored.

Just bought this today at Wal Mart for PS3. Will get going on it tonight. Apparently the Wal Mart version had an extra weapon and mission in addition to the PS3 exclusive stuff.

Frigging NHL 13 is a total crapfest. Just lost game seven of the conference finals in my league on a goal where one the the player pushed my goalie into the net while my opponent shot into the net with no call.

I can't get into these new hockey games. I tried to like NHL 13 quiet hard. I kept it for a few days. It looks great on first look, but then you start playing and it's so unrealistic. The player movements and just the whole thing. It's gotta be for hardcore hockey fans. I couldn't get into shooting with the left stick. What happened to the good old days of pressing a button. I could hardly hit the net. Haha. Last NHL game I liked was on Sega Genesis.

I couldn't imagine using a button to shoot again, going to the stick to shoot is the best thing the EA series ever did.

It still has it's issues, and I think it's geared more towards casual fans to be honest, at least right out of the box. You have to tweak the sliders pretty good to get it to play less arcade like and more like hockey. Still enjoy it though.

I cleaned the connectors on the Wiimotes, and that made it a little better. With the nunchucks attached, they eat batteries. Yikes!

It also seems to depend on the game because I noticed whenever I played the Godfather, my Wiimotes died much faster... Might have something to do with how the games use them...

I'll beat AC Brotherhood tonight, possible get 3 tomorrow. Or maybe Halo 4. Or maybe go back to Sleeping Dogs and finish that.

Revelations comes after Brotherhood, FYI

Not sure if you meant that or if you already played Revelations or what.

Sleeping Dogs was awesome until the finish. It felt a bit rushed to me.

Tonight I will beat whichever AC game came out last year, at that point, I will be considering which game to play next.

AC, AC2, AC2:B, AC2:R, AC3

I will get AC3 (the one that just came out) when the price drops. I will be playing Black Ops 2 for a bit before I play AC3

started AC3. The fighting is much more solid. I only got through the first 2 sequences... I believe one of them was the PS3 exclusive missions, which makes sense because some of it was not vital to the story line.

If you tell me where to set the sliders, I'll borrow it again.

I am aware that in the past few years I have gotten to the point in my life where video games go wherever things go when they aren't important enough to be on the back burner...maybe the middle burner. You know that little burner that you only use when you got family over and you’re cooking a big batch of pancakes. That one.

Anyway...I still didn't think that people still went at midnight to get video games. I thought they were just all readily available all day on release day.

When you guys play games like these. Well, shooters. I'm playing Borderlands now. Do you keep hoarding weapons? My God. I have 55 weapons right now. 22 shotguns. And I only really need like 6 or 7 specialized weapons at a time. I'm trying to clean up and I can't get rid of any because they're all good. 9 sniper rifles, when I only carry 2.
