Let's be real man, the 360 and PS3 versions of TF2 are abortions; nobody plays them. No servers, no updates, no expansions, no bug fixes; it's basically unplayable. If you want to play the game the way it's meant to be played, TF2 is basically a PC exclusive.

And Fitch prefers the PS3 version. Your point? They're both fools.

I think it was Higgins who said he just doesn't get the fun that comes from minecraft. If you have the time here's a video series that this guy who goes by 'X' is doing to get people interested and guiding viewers through his adventure through minecraft. If you get to episodes #15 and not are hooked, this may not be the game for you.

Am I the only one who still just reads manuals. (not on the john) I always read the manual to a new game although I will say lately it's been more just flip through it because more and more it's become a couple pictures and here is the jump button combined with legal information

I tend to flick through to check for control peculiarities and such, but I don't read the whole thing.

I feel Halo Reach is a great standalone Halo experience. I gave the game to my sister (she never could get into the games) last time I was in town and she loved it!

The thing about Halo is that it doesn't always feel like a straight shooter; Bungie is great about mixing up gameplay with vehicles, different objectives, etc.

Also the music is freaking incredible!

Now if they could somehow fix the framerate in some of those cut-scenes.... :geek:

I'm sorry, who's the troll who starts a poll with the express purpose of calling someone out on blast? Yeah, that would be you.

No, not really. Not like how you must've been sad that Green Bay lost to Chicago on Monday night.

You know Jinpei, if you were to just embrace this shit and turn it about to make jokes, people would stop bugging you about it. You've gotta look at things from outside the box.

I'm failing to see where you admitted that you're an instigator. I'm being serious here. If you had just said from the beginning, "yeah, I start shit, wanna fight about it!?!" you would have gotten some lulz and the conversation would have been dead.
