I've been dreadfully naughty and bought a whole load of Warhammer stuff for the PC - Dawn of War and all add-ons - Dawn of War II and some of the extras...

Then today I found 3 PC games for £10 in Game and now possess the complete Gothic plus Assassins Creed and Mass Effect. And why not?

A quick trip to Gamestop yesterday netted me a copy of Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. Not the best game in the series, and I had it a long time ago but sold it, but this game sure is fun to play in short bits for a quick Zelda fix. Plus I just love the Link to the Past style graphics!

I was considering picking up "Deus Ex- Human Revolution" on Gamersgate for $8 (on sale this weekend), but then realized that I had the first two Deus Ex games on steam and hadn't even touched them yet. I'm sure Human Revolution will go on crazy sale again.

Side question: How are you pronouncing "Deus Ex"? I had always heard it as "Doo Ay" as in Deus Ex Machina, but I've heard several different pronunciations like "Day-us Ex", "Doo Ex", and even "Doos Ex".

Play the games. The first one is my favourite game ever, and the second is worth a go. And Human Revolution is excellent too. Not as good as the first, but still great.

Currently installing ME3. Can't wait!

Have you considered becoming a monk? That level of self control would be the envy of religious orders around the world. I've just arrived at the Citadel... So far it's been very intense, and brilliant, and I'm loving it!

Alrighty, I bought the collector's editions of Lord Of The Rings: War In The North for half price price, as well as buying Saints Row 2 and Bioshock 2 on Wednesday and grabbing Twisted Metal and getting the voucher for Twisted Metal Black and finally, like everyone else, the N7 collectors edition of Mass Effect 3, even though I'm still working on my first playthrough of Mass Effect 1, and then doing a second playthrough on New Game+ and then during a playthough on easy with Femshep. I need more time for this stuff.

Heh! I started it last night and got as far as the Normandy. Loving it already, especially how great combat feels. I think it's gonna be one hell of an experience, playing this through!

Yeah, combat is a big improvement over the previous two games. I've always said that I don't mind that the combat is a bit lacking as I've always been a fan for the story and RPG elements. But this time around, it really does feel great to play.

I managed to slaughter a Bunny in Skyrim yesterday. I couldn't hit the little shits until now; I've killed like 4 dragons, but the Bunnies eluded me. Maybe now people will stop frigging mocking me!

I don't think I've ever been as emotionally involved in a game as Mass Effect 3. It was on course to be my favourite game ever easily. Then the ending came along. I really don't know what BioWare were thinking... It's a shallow ass pull that leaves a bitter taste about the entire series. They're crazy.

Wow. I haven't gotten that far yet. I'm about 15 hours in and loving it. The game is brilliant, just an amazing experience. The combat is superb, the characters, everything.

The endings really that bad? I've avoided spoilers, but I thought I had it figured out. I guess not. The ending spoils the whole series? Wow!

not spoils it. But it's the thing that sticks in my head the most, rather than all the brilliant stuff that's gone before. Which is sad.

No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

I listed to a few podcasts from IGN and the guys there pronounce it 'day-oos ecks'. I figure they have a lot of contact with the developers, etc. so it should be right on.

Another wallet lightening coupon to GameStop came into my possession, and now I own LittleBigPlanet: GOTY Edition and GTA IV for the PS3 and Dragon Age: Origins for the 360. Somehow I manage to keep adding games to my query without finishing them as fast as I can buy. Still playing catch up with the current generation of systems!
