It's such a huge beat that I can't finish good video games faster than they come out. It even dissuades me from buying games I'd likely enjoy but don't "need" to have, like PES 2008 or Smash Brothers (yes I know it's great, but not really my type of genre so I doubt I'd love it as much as everyone else does). Doubt I'll buy anything before GTA IV next month.
i'm going through the same thing. i'm loving like 4 or 5 games right now and want to get rainbow 6, las vegas 2, but i know that will just thin out my games that much more, and i will shuffle lost odyssey back even further.

i'm pumped for GTA IV, i may have to force myself to hold back on rainbow 6 until after i finish with my current games and GTA IV, so maybe next fall? =/

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

if history is any indication, once GTA4 comes out all of my other games will be collecting dust for quite a while so i've gotta get on board and beat a few things in the next 40 days.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

Currently playing:

COD4 (gotten up to 25, but am starting to get sick of it)
R&C

Backlog:

UT3, AC, Oblivion, NG:Sigma and still want to get Gears, Bioshock, and Mass Effect, but like goofy these are 'like to haves' and I don't really need them until I finish what I have.

I would rate Mass Effect as a "must have" in that group. Gears is pretty fun too but can wait if you've had your fill of shooters for awhile.

Never played a beta before, but ran across the beta signup for Battlefield:Bad Company today.

I know, I know... I really want to get it. But I really want to finish the games I have so maybe, just maybe, these go down in price. I'm surprised on how long gears has stayed at $60 and am hoping ME2 comes out sooner than later so that the first one goes down.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

My "main" current game is Phantasy Star 2 on the Sega Genesis Collection. I got fairly far years ago on the actual Genesis but then the system stopped working. I also started the game when I first got the Collection over a year ago, but lost interest. Third time's the charm.

I've also just purchased a DS with Professor Layton because I'll be in the hospital for a couple of days next month. I'll also probably buy the Final Fantasy 1-2 collection (which is for GBA not DS) and then start a Gamefly subscription for hopefully Phoenix Wright and New Super Mario Bros. or something along those lines.

Dante sucks, I want Nero back.....

His hand/grab was friggin awesome in combat and using Daunte now is kind of annoying.

Doesn't feel as powerful and makes me think I'm going to actually have to learn the combo's now haha.....

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

for you 360 players out there, do any of you have anyone on your friend's list where you cringe a little bit when they login? i know you can turn off pop-ups and all..but when i have friends over to play rock band or w/e, i cringe a little when Thac logs in...

"imnotblacklol is now online" all eyes turn to me and one person says, "who is that?" I jsut tell them, "long story lol" Thac's name cracks me up btw lawl, one of the best xbl gt's out there.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

I have not played Leggo Star Wars yet, so I am wanting to do this.

What version would you recommend I pick up (of the complete trilogy of course).

I know the DS has extra levels designed specifically for it,and I think the Wii has added content as well.....

Anyone think one version is superior enough over the others to justify one over the other?

Wikipedia has a good rundown of the differences.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego_St..._Complete_Saga

To me, looks like the DS additions aren't enough to detract from the fact that it has fewer levels.

To answer your question in a roundabout way, when Lego Indiana Jones comes out in the summer, I'm probably getting it for the 360 instead of the Wii, mainly for the better graphics. The only way I'd get the Wii version instead of the 360 version is if the motion control adds a lot to the game. (It doesn't in Lego Star Wars, according to GameSpot

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

I am getting that itch again to play some more Guitar Hero 3. Since I got Smash Brothers, that is the only game I have played. But having completed Subspace Emissary, I could use a nice swift kick in the Ass trying to beat the only song left I have on Hard....something about Snowing Sweat or something.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

4 High: is it an Xbox problem or a network problem? Is it connected to a router? Do other devices (computer) on the router work? If so, try switching the plug the 360 is using, and then if that fails try switching the cable. Basically, narrow down the problem such that the only possible problem can be your 360.

Unlikely to fix it but when you call Microsoft tech support then having eliminated any other possible causes makes it easy to tell them "my 360 is broke, fix k thx."

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

My computer seems to be working fine and thats also on the router. Its wireless if that helps.

Funny thing is i KNOW this has happened before to me after a power outage but i cannot for the life of me remember what i did to fix it.

Also now if i turn on my 360 via the power button instead of using a controller, the controller can't sync and just keeps flashing. I mean i guess this is better then red lights, but wtfffffff.

I'm assuming that's what told him his network adapter is disconnected.
