For anyone who is a RPG fan, Nier is a vastly underrated action-rpg by Square Enix.

I love Battlefield 3 but I have two complaints: 1) It takes forever to get promoted/upgrade weapons and such. I'm still level 12 but I feel like I've played the game for at least half a days worth. I continue to use the same gun over and over because its the only one that I have all of the unlocks for. 2) It sucks that I never have a chance to upgrade my vehicles weapons. Whenever I get in a jet/helicopter I always fly around for about 20 seconds and then someone with an amazing anti air rocket immediately kills me and there's nothing I can do because I haven't unlocked the flares yet. Same goes with tanks and AAV's.  I get destroyed in them without ever having a chance!

It does take forever to rank up. I'm at level 20 right now. Some of the rewards for ranking up the classes really suck, like unlocking the M16 for use by the Russians. That's cheap. If you unlock it, you should be able to use it whether you are American or Russian.

There's a FTP mech game coming out on the PC that looked like a ton of fun. Don't recall the name, but I'm always up for a good mech game!

I downloaded the Syndicate demo on PS3 last week. For a demo...it's not too bad. Looking forward to the game's release.

Not really. It's a First Person Shooter now. I remember playing the original one back in the 90s. That game as the crap back then.  :)

Exactly. I tried using the Engineer today (I'm usually assault) and I could only use the M4A6 or the russian equivalent. It's lame!

Engineer is awesome. I've finished all the unlocks for that and it's by far my favorite class. <3 javelins and other rockets and the G36C

I've wrapped up Medic and Engineer (just trying to get service stars now), I'm pretty far on support but I like a 24/7 Wake Island server and support isn't great there. Also trying Recon...I'm not a fan of sniping but I want to unlock SOFLAM.

I'm playing some Killzone 3 on my PS3 now. The Killzone series is one of the most underrated game series in the business. The enemy AI is amazing!

i mentioned earlier if you played BF1943, the jet controls are pretty similar to the plane controls from that game. 

i just have no idea how to control the copter.  i've tried everything possible, but all i can do is go up and jump out the copter to parachute.  then i watch it blow up with my teammates inside.

I've been in serious thoughts about buying a PS3 just so I can play The Show. My reasoning is dumb since EA will be able to make a baseball game next year but I really want to play a good baseball game.

I got the helicopters down. It takes lots of practice. I actually got pretty good with the helicopter by playing the second online co-op mission. You have to provide support for ground units in the mission. I must of crashed about 100 times before I completed the mission.

I've been replaying Bayonetta, after selling it off once before for being way too damn hard on Normal difficulty at the end of the game. Apparently it didn't occur to me to play it on Easy? I finished it the other day and really enjoyed it, teenage boy fan service notwithstanding.

I'm now going to go open Skyrim, since MDS hasn't touched it and I haven't wanted to open it first (since it was his gift). However, you snooze, you lose.
