Would anybody recommend a simple baseball game to teach someone new to the sport the basic rules? I am looking for something to help spread the sport to Brazil. :mg:

If you have a PS3, try picking up an old copy of MLB The Show. I learned most of what I know about hockey rules from NHL '94 on Sega Genesis :lol:

GTA V Trailer @ http://www.rockstargames.com/

Looks to be a must buy for me. It's a short trailer that doesn't show a lot, but GTA is always a must buy.

Harper is ridiculous for me in my OOTP game. I'll post his stats after this season.

Skyrim "Unofficial Information"

http://theelderscrollsskyrim.com/unofficial-skyrim-information-part-1/

Quite a bit of gameplay info there.  May be some minor generic spoilers but nothing that bothered me.

I don't think it's that difficult in Oblivion, just kinda boring.

As far as I could tell, the c key was cast which was a pita right there, things just seemed more tailored for warrior type play.

Tim and Eric created commercials for Saints Row: The Third. Probably not getting the game since it doesn't have multiplayer (they should've just stuck to Saints Row 1 multiplayer - the 2nd one was awful) and the single player isn't really worth the money, at least not at the moment with the games I'd buy before it, but these commercials are pretty funny.

You can customize the key and mouse mappings in-game you know :P

I decided on Skyrim months ago, passed on the games I would have purchased otherwise.

Yeah. Dual wielding spells sounds interesting though.

I gave up on COD the second I played BF3.  Seriously, I haven't any gotten on the multiplayer yet and it's still better than anything COD could put out.

By the way, if you're a fan of the non-FPS gameplay of BF3 check out this game that DICE made a couple of years ago.  My wife was a huge fan of this game and the second I played BF3 I thought "wow, this looks a lot like 'Mirrors Edge'":

I've split off all the Skyrim chatter to a separate thread as a courtesy to people viewing and posting to this thread on a more casual basis :lol: :-[
