Bought the Show 12 last week and so far I really like it.  How the hell do you learn to hit in it?

Switch to timing hitting. Then you only have to time your swings right.

Top ten in my opinion

Strongly disagree that Angry Birds is a top 10 video game of all time.

Cool. I'll look you up.

Since you're just starting out... look for Jackson Ivy. That's my newest character... he plays like Captain America but looks like The Green Lantern cause they just came out with a DLC that allows shield combat.

I think you look up players by character name.

And it does matter hero/villain when you're questing.

Ivy is a hero.

Mass Effect should have included all three and been much much higher. And if the ending had been worth a damn, it should have been top 5

I'm holding out that it's going to be fixed with the DLC. More like praying. I invested way too much in these characters to be given that bullcrap ending.

Don't want to start a fight but personally I didn't find the ending to be that horrifying, though I understand why people didn't like it. It's just the last 5 minutes that annoyed me - everything after Shepard's ending. It was really abrupt, considering how many hours I had put into the series and how much I really cared for them.

Thankfully the new ending will have an epilogue which is what I really wanted. And hopefully get rid of that last part with the man and mini man (seriously, they shrunk down an adult model and used it as a child) talking about "the Shepard". That was pretty silly.


Otherwise ME3 was sooo good. Almost as good as ME2, one of my absolute favorite games.

That's what we're talking about when we talk about the ending.

It was quick. It was completely non-sensical. It was pointless. You just spent hundreds of hours and all for the most pointless ending there could have been.

I have a feeling they're going to let us down with the epilogue. Instead of fixing the ending, they're just going to throw something in there and hope it sticks.

Now that I think about it, I also hate the last bit of the mission. After saving all of these people and attempting to get them to help our cause, there isn't much of a special presence by them. What I'm trying to say is how in ME2, you go on a lot of loyalty missions to have that better of a chance of your team surviving. It's like in ME3, none of your decisions really have an effect, unlike ME2 where you need to select the right crew here and there.

I don't know, I just didn't see any difference.

Also, the stupid Origin exclusivity.  I'm not installing Origin on my PC, if it's not on steam or stand-alone, I'm not getting it.

is the PSN down right now?

I can't access the Playstation Store, and I can't sign up for the Music Unlimited free trial.

but oddly, I can log into HOME and such.

Uh ... Origin is the same thing as Steam. HL2 needed Steam along with several other games.

It's most certainly not the same thing as Steam.  Steam is awesome.  Origin blows.  EA in general blows anymore, really.

There's no difference. Except Origin sells EA games. I'm sure Ubisoft will be releasing something similar with the next AC game

Origin is made by EA.  And I don't like what they are doing.  By your logic, the iOS and Android and WP7 are the same thing.  Except one is made by Apple, one by Google, and one by Microsoft.

Origin sends back data to EA.  I don't like that.  I like that all my games are in one place.  That place is steam.  If other people are OK with it, so be it, but I'm not using another service when Steam is already available and has had years to work everything out.  I've read enough horror stories with EA/Origin support that the games they do offer aren't a big enough draw for me to bother.

I trust Valve.  I don't trust EA.  That's the difference.

Lol, like Steam isn't sending data back to Valve. You're being naive.
