GameStop sure is god awful. I preordered Dishonored from them for the Tarot Cards but they botched the order. As they were showing no signs of progress in actually shipping it and the game has been in wild I gave up and cancelled the order.

I want to try Borderlands but I don't want to spend $60.  Why do games these days hardly ever have a freaking demo?

Oh well, hopefully it'll be on steam sale soon.

How would you demo it? It seems like a game that'd be hard to do it with.

Was given Bioshock and Oblivion for PC. I liked Oblivion on PS3, but how is it on PC. What about Bioshock?

First couple of missions/quests just to see how the game plays and what it's about.  For instance, Torchlight 2 has a demo that lets you play act 1 but you have to buy to unlock acts 2-4.

Was given Bioshock and Oblivion for PC. I liked Oblivion on PS3, but how is it on PC. What about Bioshock?

On PC, if it's anything like Morrowind and Skyrim, you will have hundreds or even thousands of mods to change it around, improve graphics, etc.  Never played Bioshock really.

Not yet. I wish Gamestop didn't bungle my order or would have done it sooner. It was $45 on preorder for awhile and New Egg has it for $60 with a $15 gift card but I am waiting for the price to drop back down.

Yeah, one of my buddies got it and he loves it. I've read lots of good things about it also.

Is Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition worth it for 20$ on Amazon?

Dragon's Dogma has the most fun RPG combat mechanics I have ever seen.

Its also the only Fantasy game I have ever seen which does Shields correctly.

That said, I dont understand why people compare it to Skyrim, when it is more similar to Monster Hunter.

So, my PS3 doesn't want to play discs I'm too cheap to spend $100 to get some dude out in Subpurgatory to fix it. Anyone fixed one from a disc kit and been successful?

My original PS3 had the lens go out on me. Wouldn't play any disc based media. Good luck, I bought a new one.

Wait, a new PS3?  The repair is only $100 but I'm cheap and don't feel like driving out to the suburbs.
