True that.

The last game I got from Sugar Daddy Seraph was NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams.

Awesome game.

Chances of you liking Fallout 3 enough to finish it are slim considering how much you hated Oblivion mate.

Last game i bought was PGR4 new for £10, bargain. I finished all the Q4 rush games, Forza 2 was ages ago and i needed a racing game fix, GT5P didnt count cos it was just a £20 demo.

I'll give you my thoughts. Its very ordinary, it claims to be an open world but its not, really its just a series of obstacle courses linked together by a central hub.

The charachters, the prince and his bird are incredibly annoying, the fighting is simply awful its rigid, boring and constantly broken up by QTEs, why they didnt keep a similar fighting system to the previos three games i will never understand.

The cell shading look nice but once youve gotten over that all thats left to entertain you are the acrobatics which get boring quiclky because making your way through spaces is very linear.

The other jarring thing is it suffers from the same thing that Assasins Creed did (same engine , same mistakes). You just do the same things over and over again. Get to a level, cleanse the level, collect the orbs, return to the hub and repeat.

If you really must then rent it, dont buy it.

First one as in MHF for PSP or MH for PS2?

I've only ever played MH on PS2 so I can't tell you otherwise. It's your typical sequel. New areas, weapons, monsters and a few new features. It's a very hard game so far.

Last game I picked up was also Left 4 Dead. I've got about 140 bucks to spend on gaming though, and I'm not sure what I want to pick up. I want something I can play with friends preferably. Fable II will likely be one thing, but outside of that there isn't much else that my friends have that I don't. Feel free to drop some advice.

If you gonna pick up Fable 2 to play with friends, I think that won't be the game, the online co-op play from what I understand is so dire, it's like a hybrid co-op play thing. It's so weird I don't even understand it, or I just read the description wrong.

Check some arcade games on xbox live if you peeps don't have them. Games like arcade puzzles or so, lots of them have online co-op play. Maybe Castle Crasher? Soon Street Fighter 4.

Gears 2 was my last game, if I had time I would have bought either space giraffe or poker smash on xbox live.

Prince of Persia and Fire Emblem DS the same day.

Prince of Persia was great, I΄ve haven΄t played a PoP game since the 2D ones though. It has some problems here and there that don΄t bother the overall experience, well only one that hinders you from collecting all 1001 orbs. The whole temple is very beautiful and I had fun doing speed runs from one region to the other. I liked the combat, the acrobatics are neat and Prince, Alika coop too. I like QTE actually. It ΄s rewarding when you are able to collect the hardest orbs. The fact that΄s repetitive and linear is good because I enjoyed the process of cleansing and collecting.

Prince of Persia. Which I just beat. The credits are still rolling on my TV.

All I have to say is, Fuck you Ubisoft. Seriously. Fuck you.
