Waiting for my copy of Final Fantasy 13 to arrive on my desk!

There goes my life for the next couple of months.

Brought FFXIII for my GF's 21st today. She seems to be digging it so far. Keen to have a hoon in a week or three once she beats it.

FFXIII is epic as, im gonna jam it hard over the weekend while uni isnt happening, i don't mind that it's completely linear (wel, doesnt make a big deal of hiding the fact that it is, like most jrpg's - cos their all linear)

gotta clock it before GoW 3 though!

Also, had a 0X and hoon on FFXIII with Griz on Friday - visually gorgeous, but I've never been a huge fan of JRPG's and found the characters and linear progress a bit annoying.

Did you do the challenge of the gods??

I've done the GoW one. Fuck me was it hard doesn't help that you have to do it all in one sitting.

Done 5 of the GoWII ones.

Gunning for my GoWII platinum!! Fuck I love this game. No matter how many times I play it, it just gets better!!

Nah, gave it a couple of goes but was too frustrating...

Basically by the time I'd finished the story on these games, as fun as they are, I have no further interest in replaying them. Won't bother going for platinum on a game unless it's really fucking good.

Keen for GoW3 though.

Hooked up my PC to the 50" over christmas for skype action and later on when i played a downloaded show (an idiot abroad), noticed it looked a bit shit. Why do video files look so much better coming through the PS3? Even SD downloads of the ultimate fighter look way sharper than watching it directly off SD foxtel TV.

borrowing a ps3 for a lil while. am surprised how much worse the PS3 version of black ops is compared to the Xbox version. graphics and even lag are much worse.

beef, will add you for some car comparison ;)

I knew they upscaled dvds but wasn't sure about other media so I didn't say anything.

apparently hdd and streamed content upscaling/upconverting was included in a firmware update in 2008, by most accounts it is very good at it too, also does ps1/ps2 games and shit too.
