Got a few characters to 60 and made it as far as I could through inferno, but it just pales in comparison to the fun I had in D2. Probably in big part due to the lack of pvp.

I think the 2000s will turn out to be the golden era of online PC gaming, while the 2010s are shaping up to be the dark ages of online PC gaming. The 2000s had EverQuest, DaoC, FFXI, WoW, D2, WC3, CounterStrike, the original Call of Duty's. The 2010s will have, what... FFXIV, World of Pandas, D3, Guild Wars 2, and the Nth sequel of CoD?

Trying to balance Torchlight 2, Guild Wars 2 and all the unplayed/unfinished PS3 games sitting on my shelf.

As much as I love my PS3, nothing compares to good PC gaming.

I agree partially, but how could you forget to mention SC:BW for 2000s era ??? HOW ? Anyways, sc:bw is superior to sc2, but sc2 is going the right direction, and we can remember that starcraft became great after expansion, and sc2 first expansion is yet to come.

Anyways, people these days choose games not because of quality... you can't blame developers too much.

One last Association play-through on 2k12 before I get 2k13 next week.

I recently switched from XBox to PS3, and never got around to the post-lockout roster update with rookies, free agents, and trades.... so the base roster was pretty outdated.

I basically brought Lebron back to a bare-bones Cleveland Cavaliers team.

After making some solid trades, unloading most of the cumbersome contracts, and simulating the first season....

Entering the free agency period with $20-million in cap space, I was able to sign Chris Paul to a max-superstar deal and DeAndre Jordan to a 5-year, $5-million base year deal.

PG: Chris Paul - C.J. Watson
SG: Arron Afflalo - Danny Green
SF: Lebron James - Ryan Anderson
PF: Taj Gibson - Marcus Camby
C: DeAndre Jordan - Anderson Varejao

What can people tell me about Witcher 2? I know based on rep that its an awesome RPG but is the combat fun at all? I'm not terribly interested in the whole magic and dragon fantasy setting but the game might be too good to pass up.

Combat is solid. It has a bit of a "rhythm" based element to it like Arkham Asylum/City. You need to time attacks properly. Your signs (magic) plays a part in combat too. You can also equip secondary throwing weapons (daggers) and use bombs/traps in combat.

I played it on the 360 and loved it. The combat is solid like Q said….not as fluid as Batman’s and you can get away with some hacking at times. The story although confusing at times is great. Character customization and item creation are excellent. I specialized in alchemy or item creation first and then combat….not so much magic but I did use it. I would rank it as one of the best RPGs I ever played over 20+ years.

Started playing Homeworld. Really liked when I first played it, but I didn't get far in the campaign, so I kind of wanted to come back to it.

Regarding Gears of War 3 (online - Team Deathmatch)

You have four teammates, all five of you should not run to the same place. There are typically two power weapons, three if you count frags/flames grenades. If we all run into the same damn place, that leaves two other strong weapons free for the other team to pick up.

If you and another teammate go somewhere together, don't run away when things get heavy, it basically leaves your teammate to get slaughtered because what was once a 2-on-2, is now 2-on-1 (or worst, 3-on-1) because you decided to hide in cover or away when you should have been on the attack.

I'm not even that great at this game, but i understand enough to work with the team. Most people play this game as if its 1on1 and all the extra people out there are just spectators so you should totally ignore them and just pull out your shotgun and take on the world.

I don't care if we lose the match to a better team, but i don't want to lose because we didn't have a team at all.
