I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Is $5 on ms live right now. I've actually had the game before and played maybe two hours before deciding it wasn't really my thing. But for $5 I should try it again, right? Right? Isn't this game super loved around here.

It was alright. They really should of went with free roam instead of the linear style. Cool mechanic's though, and it felt a bit more like max payne than the new max payne itself actually.

I just finished the alan wake collectors edition. They did a great job porting it to the PC.

I was surprised just how kinda max payney it felt at times. I really liked the game but I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much if I was playing it one episode at a time and then having to wait for the next one.

It gripped me heavily. The beginning sucked me in and I finished it really quickly. When these games are done right they are usually excellent.

Couldn't agree more though.
