Ultimax comes the closest to realizing my dream of an actual fighting RPG.

Super Smash Bros. (3DS) Review
Nintendo’s first brawler, combining characters from all over its universe, lands on a handheld for the first time and it sure packs a wallop.

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Even better, it's Stronghold Crusader HD! It's just like when I was playing it with the CD, non-HD version. It'll be a dollar worth spent.

I voted for Hitman. But then I remembered that I have no desire to play Absolution.

How did Epic Fantasy beat out Comedy Platformer in the community vote?! Goddamnit, I would have bought all four of those.

Why do you not own L4D2 yet?

It was, anybody who was on Steam picked it up. Even people who couldn't play it at the time picked it up.

Thinking of Borderlands 2 GOTY, is it still a good purchase at $9.99?

IMO only if you have friends to play with. They get pretty stale solo

I play plenty of games solo and for this probably wouldn't go completely co-op or MP most of the time so now it's iffy. Might just go for Skyrim (Despite not wanting it at first) and Tomb Raider instead.

Thanks again and how about Tomb Raider? Heard good stuff about it and was thinking of the vanilla version.

I mean don't get me wrong the game is awesome and a great deal at that price, but for me personally I could never get into it solo.

There's just something not quite as exciting about it when you're not scrambling around trying to heal a downed buddy, driver/shooter play or sharing loot with eachother. If you die on a boss or something playing solo you just gotta sit there and wait to run back or hope you kill an enemy. To me It just never felt like it was inherently designed for solo play and maximum fun is had with other people.

I played BL2 entirely single player. The dialogue is great and easy to skip over with another person playing.

Forgot I have Morrowind still to play, should mod that and get Skyrim later.

Back on the train for Borderlands 2, still have the next day and it's extra 24 hours of the previous day's daily deals but thanks again for the input.

Definitely favoring Borderlands 2 and Tomb Raider now, but Fallout: New Vegas might clash with them for my wallet, if it wins the community vote.

Aw crap.

One more that I can think of: Fallout 3 GOTY or Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition?

HK- depends on what type of game you are looking for. All of them are great in their own way. If you are looking for heavier storytelling, go with the fallout games. Granted, there is still plenty of humor sprinkled around in the games, but they still deal with heavier subject matter. BL2 on the other hand is just over the top from start to finish. Some of it doesn't work, but some of it is pretty damn funny.

I'd go with GLs recommendation myself.

Thank you, I'll hold out for Fallout: New Vegas and pick up Borderlands 2, love over-the-top when they do it right. Will keep an eye on Fallout 3 and see if it goes for 75%.
