Just tried out Rayman Origins with a friend. Most fun I've had in a platforming game in a long time. And the hand-drawn art style is beautiful with the fluid frame-rate.

Yeah, I've heard that XBox is the way to go. PS3 has too many frame rate drops and the PC interface is supposedly clunky. We lucked out - we usually go with PS3 but my husband didn't specify which version in the pre-order and they put it down as XBox, so that's what we've got.

In other news - the Dark Souls 1.05 patch totally nerfed the Antiquated Skirt! I'm super pissed because not only did I LOVE kicking ass in a party dress and high heels, I also spent most of my Twinkling Titanite upgrading it to +5. Fuckers.

So Black Friday was a thing that went down...

What I bought (for others):
Bought Mrs. SW824 a shiney new blue 3DS and Cooking Mama 4 for X-mas, because that is what she wanted. I also picked up a new used Dreamcast on the cheap for a friend who lost ALL of his SEGA consoles due to flood damage over the summer. BTW Anyone have an idea as to what paint is best to use on console? I kind of want to slap a Zeon emblem on his DC.

For myself:
Bulletstorm, Raw vs Smackdown 2011 (PSP), NBA Jam and some obscure Japanese game called "Ghost Trick" for the DS that I'm sure no one has heard of.

What I've been playing:
Relapsed into Gears 3 Horde mode this prior to my mini-vacation, but since all I had access to these last couple of days were handhelds, I've been playing Zelda: On a train & RvSD2k11.

Not afraid of anything...

In turn, cyber monday is happening right now and i'm using it to get ALL THE PRESENTS! Because malls are for suckers. Amazon has batman and skyrim for 34 dollars, which makes me feel like a sucker, further proving that malls are for suckers.

Need to buy some cosplay supplies and a few more presents, but after that, I AM DONE with buying ANYTHING that isn't food or drink until the new year. My credit card has a hole in it I've used it so much...digitally...

Once I finally finish the last New Vegas DLC, I'm thinking I'll finally get back to poor old Dragon Age Origins. I jumped ship for Dragon Age II a long time ago, but after loving DA2 so much I feel like I could appreciate Origins more now.

Funny since after I beat DA:O a couple times and played a bit of 2 I realized how much I hate Dragon Age games.

PC is always best for elder scrolls games, always.

The interface is only clunky due to being designed for a controller (and there's several mods that fix it already, or one could just plug a controller into their PC and play that way).

But yeah, primary reason being, mods, and better graphics.

Yet you... beat Origins more than once? I really wasn't digging Origins the first time I tried it, but DA2 gave me a new appreciation for the world. The gameplay of it is still way more my style over the first game, so we'll see how it goes.

I'll take your word for it since it was just something that I'd read somewhere I don't remember by someone I don't remember. None of my PCs are anywhere near powerful enough for gaming.

IMO, if they could combine the environments and battle layouts of DA:O with the story and battle mechanics of DAII it would be the perfect Dragon Age game.

Mass Effect 2 did the same to me. Stupid Sexy Shepard.

I'm currently playing Bulletstorm and for less than $20 bucks, I'm having a ton of fun. It's a pretty, violent and incredibly immature FPS, but god is it fun, and probably one of the few games that rewards the player for "Bullet Sodomy".

I really liked it at first but then as I played through again I started picking it apart and noticed all the shit that pissed me off but I was blind to all the WOW the first time around. Being a bad character is not balanced with being good, having a good all around party means using the same characters regardless of what YOU are, combat is boring.
