Dawn Of War: Dark Assault.
Freaking awesome, ntm having 7 factions well outdoes the usual 2-3 (even warcraft usually caps it at 4-5)

Played LBP at a friends place, was fuckin' fun as. Would definitely get it if I had a ps3.
Been cranking through the first Saints Row which I honestly reckon is better than GTA3. Not GTA4 though (which GTA4 pulled a whole lot of stuff from, sign of a good game).

keep hearing refs to something about people modding it or building modules that act like persistent worlds, pretty much like an mmo you can import your characters into? Anyway, time for a new character, my old one has hit a brick wall D:

been getting back into Fallout3 lately, fuck that game is sweet, so much shit to do on it too!
Played a bit of that smackdown vs raw game at a mates house, was alright i guess but a bit repetitive.
Downloaded some shitty arcade game that was free last week, you play as a dinosaur or a dorito(?) truck driver and gotta deliver shit. fucking shitty as game but easy as gamerpoints.

it's definitely a game you're going to want to play.. especially if you were a fan of the previous trilogy. looks beautiful, and once you get the hang of it, the combat's pretty cool. combat is pretty sparse though, it's mostly platforming (very good platforming though).. to give you an idea of length, there's a 360 "speed demon" achievement for finishing the game in under 12 hours..

I've read really mixed reviews on that game. Most of the criticism seems to stem around the fact that not being able to die saps a lot of the sense of achievement out of it. Agree/disagree?

I've read that a few places, but someone pointed out you can't really die in the other ones either though. Seeing an animation of that chick saving you isn't really taht different from seeing something say "you died" or whatever in the previous ones then throwing you back around where you just were.

disagree. you do die. you just don't get a game over screen, and the quicksave is the last piece of solid ground you were on. it's still frustrating as hell to mess up a series of jumps, especially later on in the game when you're wall running/ swinging/ warping for some time before you hit solid ground again. i guess some people really need that game over screen to tell them they fucked up..

I loved all of them. PoP was like my favourite as a kid as well.
PoP3d sucked though, but that doesnt count.
I'll have to see if this is being released on PC, I need PC games more than 360 games.

yeah. now someone just needs to mod it so torching people is as satisfying as torching houses.

saw a review of persia on tv, looked boring, too easy. mind you theres very very few games i like.
Apparently the game is quite long.. this is because you just have to redo the same levels and collect new objects correct?

figured i'd post it here as pop doesn't have its own thread..

The Prince of Persia Epilogue DLC comes to PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 26. Pricing has yet to be announced. What we do know is that the new POP continues the story of the retail game, ups the difficulty, adds a new power for Elika and attack for the Prince, reveals a brand new location, and includes two unlockable skins that become available after completing the Epilogue. It's a significant update.

I'm spewing I finished teh MK story, got the trophy for it. Finished the DC story, got the trophy for it... but didn't get the trophy for finishing both?

Actually that game has jipped me out of a couple of trophies now grrrrrrrrr

Still fuckin fun though, Green Lanterns brick wall attack has the best sound effects!

** That PoP DLC is getting me closer to picking up this game.

jamming the Grand Turismo 5 prologue and devil may cry 4. Grand Turismo is mean and has me excited about the actual game. I hopefully will be racing online in a couple days. devil may cry 4 is the first one I have played out of the series and i found it to be enjoyable for the most part except for the cheesy one liners.

Don't expect the real GT5 this year, infact if Sony get their arse into gear and suss the DLC for Prologue I'd be surprised. Likely outcome is they announce DLC for GT5:Prologue making it a more complete game call that the "REAL" GT5 and then just make the ultimate GT6 or whatever with full crash damage and shit and release it 2010 sometime.
