Thanks for that.. I may be able to pick that up cheap from Play Asia if it did not fair too well.

Enjoy. That's the one game sequel I'd consider getting hold of a replacement 360 for.

With Play Asia are the games normally in Japanese? (I'm assuming so, but I've never known/read about anyone getting a game from them). I'm just wondering because I have a hankering to pick up White Knight Chronicles...but I'm total shit at Japanese (I can understand a few basic questions/answers, and that's about it).

Games are normally marked as Asian, or European, or US Version. They are based in Hong Kong actually.
Normally the Asian ones are cheaper. For example the Asian Fallout 3 was about $50 and the US Version was $65.
I got the US one as I didn't want it to have stuff cut out.

You always get a voucher too, which gives you between $5 and $10 off your next purchase.

But even the Asian versions still have English. I think that depends more on your machine setup with most of the big publishers.

My LBP is the Asian one, and it's all in English on my PS3.

The only game where I messed up was F1 Championship Edition. I got the Japanese version which didn't get some of the updates and the menus are in Japanese, but that panned out ok as the commentary is all in Japanese so it's much less repetitive to listen to.

I've been playing GTA 4 a lot lately. Got the Ps3 for Christmas and picked up GTA a few days later at a GameStop (used.) It's fun enough, I'm not thrilled with it, especially the controls, but I really like the game and in true GTA form, I've been able to waste way too much time playing it.

Come waste your time with me

I skipped my Annual Trilogy Playthrough last year, so I'm trying to sneak that in before a new project comes in next week. Interestingly, there's some new textures and weapons physics and whatnot on the download page (I downloaded all fresh, new files...*sparkles*) that I'm anxious to see. They're only good for Durandal and ∞ (and I'm just halfway through M1A1) but I'm pretty excited to try them out.

So it goes.

Picked up Left 4 Dead and played with some friends last night. That game is crazy! If you like being one of the last 4 normal people trying to survive a zombie apocalypse and you enjoy online co-op play, this game is for you.

Demos !!

Resident Evil 5
It looks good and will probably buy. But serious, we're in 2009... why can't I aim and walk at the same time !!!!!

3 on 3 Arcade
Only 9.99$ ? I'probably buy too. It's a lot like NHL Hitz (last edition in 2003). Fast paced and totally arcade hockey.

Killzone 2
The preorder requiered to get this demo was a christmas gift This game is gonna be sweeeet. The graphics are better than I thought and my expectations were very high. Could be the best FPS on PS3... BTW, I've read some articles and it seems like Killzone is only using 60% on the heaviest load. I can't imagine the PS3 used to it's best then...

I'm currently playing Mercenaries 2 that I picked up for free play testing for EA games. It's pretty fun and even though it's slightly repetitive (go blow up this building, go kill/capture this target, take this person to safety) the large selection of weaponized vehicles and airstrikes keep it pretty interesting.

I'm also waiting for Afro Samurai to be shipped from Goozex and the GTA 4 and the next two Fallout 3 DLCs to be available.

Still playing Fallout!!
Oh, and WipeoutHD. WipeoutHD is worth buying a PS3 for alone IMO. (Big thanks to torifile on that one).

Very excited about RE5 and KZ2.
KZ2, particularly as it is specifically not a run and gun twitcher style game.. Suits us oldies much better.

Rented copy of COD5: World at War on my 360. Then I'm getting Mirror's Edge on Friday for my birthday.

From early January until I rented COD5 early this week, I played the heck out of Orange Box, completely beating HL2, HL2 Ep1/Ep2, Portal, and a lot of online play with TF2.

Just finished playing the snot out of No More Heroes for the Wii. The graphics were a mixed bag but the gameplay was fantastic. Best Wii game I've played since Super Mario Galaxy. It was so good I immediately did a second play through.

Currently playing Bioshock. Just got past the crazy Dr. Steinman. Pushed him into a corner and beat him with the wrench for calling me ugly.

Yeah i have been playing the demo of Killzone2. It is certainly not what i expected, a kind of Halo experience, but much slower and you have to be much more careful. I reckon it will be a great game, although the demo was very short.

The graphics do indeed look good, but in those types of games the graphics soon become part of the background and the gameplay takes over. I am very interested in the story line as after Metal Gear Solid 4, i now have to play games with a story otherwise i loose interest very quickly.
Also can't wait for Street Fighter 4. Awesome drunken fighting action!!

ps3---finishing up Eternal Sonata

wii--world of goo...waiting on preorders of HOTD, pikmin new controls and Madworld

ps3--have oblivion, will start that in a bit...

nice thing about being a new gamer, 2 year old games are still new to me...i loved fallout 3, so oblivion should be fun too.

not into 1st person shooter games...actaully just about all 2st person games make me ill...headache and such...so i avoid them.

loved RE4 on the wii, so torn about RE5...will probably wait a bit to see if any wii rumors are out there...same with dead space...almost picked it up, but will wait for the wii version...

i like good graphics, but i like game play much more...the ps3 controller is ok, the wii control is magic...

have never played a metal gear game...probably should get solid 4 next...

let me know what you think of killzone 2 vs solid 4...

I had never played any Metal gear game before MGS 4. And i wasn't that hopeful that i would like it. But it turns out to be one of the best games i have ever played. Like i said i prefer a story based game, so i don't really get into online games that much. And MGS has story in bucket loads in fact i think the game is split 50% cutscenes, 50% game play.

I don't think Killzone 2 will come anywhere near MSG 4, but as a short distraction (which most first person shooters are) i think it will be fun.

^^ This (still).

Started messing with the Halo Wars demo a little bit last weekend and was duly impressed. Will have to play some more again soon. I like how the developers simplified resource gathering to almost set it and forget it so you can concentrate on the war aspect of Halo Wars.

I'll have to try Halo Wars. I've gotten into Company of Heroes, which has a similar "set it and forget it" approach to resource gathering. You don't actually gather resources, you just capture fuel and munitions points which automatically generate your resources. Very fun.

I have to try Left 4 Dead as well.

Left 4 Dead is sitting on my cabinet waiting to be played. Getting up the gumption to play a new game online is always hard for me - I suck at games and I don't want to embarrass myself. If other ANers are playing maybe I'll pop it in.

If it's not red and showing substantial musculature, you're wearing it wrong.

Haha, me too! But I think it's more because of the lack of good games for PS3.

Got Fallout 3 for the PS3 and just now trying it out - it took about 3 hours to really get into it, but wow.

Should be getting Uncharted: Drake's Fortune in the mail soon...looking forward to that one.

Guess our wishes don't do dishes or brake repairs...

You owe it to yourself to fire up that game. It's great fun! I play it Tuesday nights on XBox Live but I already have a regular set of co-players.

Being awesome at video games is all about attitude. You just have to go in balls to the walls, gun blazing, like you mean it!

Picked up COD4 rental for my 360 at Blockbuster today when I dropped off COD5. Been playing it for hours, pretty much since I got home. It's on my list of games I want to buy at some point, probably once it drops under $60.
