The more I see /v/ talking about this, the more I want to play. ;_; It's like the first PS3 exclusive that I'm dying to play.

Congrats, Sony, it only took you a little over 3 years to make me feel this way. ...even though From Software made the game, not you froobs. But still. Congrats on getting an exclusive that I would call a "must-have". Now, just 9 more of those and I'll buy your freaking blu-ray player.

incidentally when I referred to AC2 as ass-ass it was not to insult the game. My co-workers and I merely call it ass-ass, since there are two asses.

Funny, we both have only a single game on our want list for the other console. As for me, the only game that makes me want a 360 is Tales of Vesperia.

Most of the games that appeal to me currently are on both systems, with the exception of Uncharted and its sequel. The only exclusives on Ps3 I'm waiting for are Last Guardian and God of War 3. But it's a whole different story for non-exclusives - I'll be getting Super SFIV, Bioshock 2, Dante's Inferno, and Final Fantasy XIII to name a few. I may not purchase but time permitting I'll play through Bayonetta, Darksiders, Dark Void (this one has bad story written all over it), Lego Harry Potter, Nier (looks interesting), the new Transformers: War for Cybertron, and Dead Space 2.

I was like that until I actually tried it recently.

I can enjoy a hard game, but Demon souls seems to have that stink of "its hard for the wrong reasons".

it was....ok.

Something tells me that Sony really doesn't care.

See, I thought this at first and was really placing the blame on the shit controls...but the more time I put into it, the controls started to make sense (the stamina bar lets you know how many times you can attack, defend, etc...). You have to play the game it's meant to be played...if you try to play it how you want or push through it, you're going to get detroyed...it took about 4 deaths for me to finalize realize this.

The game is hard, but fair...when you die, 90% of the time, you deserve it (there is some BS going on with that Tower Knight though...lol).

Yeah, probably. If they cared they'd actually have GAIMS.

Still don't get the point behind core vs casual discussions. If the purpose of a video game is to enjoy it, then there should be no difference except for genre because there's no point creating a derogatory term for other people that play games you don't like. However, you may play competitive games like SFIV or COD:MW2 and you may argue that you dedicate time to honing your skills in the game and becoming better. If that's the case, unless you're getting paid to play (like a job in the field or winning $$ in MLG) that still doesn't separate you from anyone else enjoying a video game.

I play Tetris in a "core" manner (see sig) but since it's not a shooter most people call me casual in spite of all the other games I play. That's why I feel there's no point having the terms since people will just use the word "casual" to describe any game they don't like.

I mean about whether or not you care about their systems. PS3 has plenty of top notch games with more to come.

I know, I'm doing it on purpose.

I picked up Operation Flashpoint, single player by yourself it isn't very rewarding but co-op with some friends it's really a lot of fun. We spend more time dicking around and going on suicide missions than following mission parameters exactly as the game would intend. Today I found out you can knife a pilot and shoot your own driver from a rear mounted .50 in a pick-up truck.

2/10. Almost made me raise an eyebrow, before the underscored convinced me that you were jesting.

Anywho, played a few good hours of Bayonetta: Visually Appealing Edition (360 exclusive). Fucking amazing. Definite GOTY contender.

Agreed on both account. Bayonetta is like a love letter to everything good about gaming, with enough Capcom easter eggs to drive Archleon fucking bonkers. There's also plenty of SEGA love in this game. Easily the action game of the year, and the first true Devil May Cry killer this generation. Kratos and Travis need one hell of a showing to triumph this game (Dante's Inferno isn't even a contender at this point).

And I've yet to play Demon's Souls, as I'll pick it up this summer, when I have the time (in theory) to play it.


Also Zweil, some excellent PS3 game of your caliber not called Demon's Souls are Uncharted 2, Valkyria Chronicles, Flower, Everyday Shooter and...come to think of it, there's probably more downloadable games relevant to your interests than retail disc ones.
