I guess I must be in a miniscule minority when I say that I am looking forward to buying the blu ray set. To me, the movies I grew up on went away when ep. 4, 5 and 6 became enhanced "special editions" in the late 90's. All these changes are needless and ridiculous for the most part, but underneath the CGI botox treatments, they ARE basically still Star Wars, and I can't just ignore that. Besides, my 7 year old daughter loves the Star Wars movies and she couldn't care less that they no longer resemble the movies I saw when I was her age. I can't allow personal nerd rage over all this to deny my kid the opportunity to create her own childhood memories of these movies.

Anyhow, I plan to buy the set and enjoy watching them with my kid. If anything, it'll be worth it for the superior video and audio quality on blu ray.

This times 1 meeelion

Agreed.  I am all excited for them.  I've got no real issues with the changes, honestly.

Yep, can't wait for these to be released.  Amazon pre-ordered.

Nice three day weekend to look forward to.  With the recent patches out for Civ 5, I'm deep into that game right now.  I love the balance and added functionality.  Amazing how the little things make a game come together.  So much better than the original release. 

Also playing Bioshock 2 on the PS3.

I really enjoyed TAKEN.  I recently watched it for a second time through and loved it even more than the first.  Great series.  And I will be watching this one too.
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (12/06) on: December 06, 2010, 11:58:37 AM
Really looking forward to Cataclysm

Wow and Pixel Junk Monsters .  I have never played The Witcher, I'm going to start that up tonight.

FFXIII and God of War Collection
48  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist: 03/19 on: March 19, 2010, 11:45:38 PM
Will be playing God of War from the PS3 HD version, just got to the Oracle Temple.   Really enjoying it. 

Also be playing FF13.  Just taking my sweet time on this gem.  Only on Chapter 2.   
49  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 3/12/10 on: March 12, 2010, 03:12:36 PM
Between watching a lot of college basketball, I will be playing God of War HD .  That version looks very very good for being a 5 year old PS2 game.  Also will be playing FF13.   All on the PS3.
50  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Teen Angst, Japanese Style. The FFXIII Impressions Thread. on: March 11, 2010, 01:31:02 PM
All I know after a little over one hour of play is  eek  holy crap the graphics are amazing on my 40 inch HDTV.  Best game graphics I have ever seen. 
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (03/08) on: March 09, 2010, 08:12:08 PM
Just bought FF13 for the PS3
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Official Review] God of War III - Monday, March 8th on: March 08, 2010, 04:21:27 PM
Wow, nice score.  May have to pick this up on day one.
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/29) on: March 01, 2010, 03:45:26 PM
This might be the strangest game I have ever read.  Somebody pull the trigger on this one and let us know.

Flips: Terror in Cubicle Four
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Players: 1
Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points

There’s something strange going on with the loo in cubicle four of the girls’ toilet. It’s spewed green goo on Stacey’s shoes and almost had new boy James for lunch. Can he and his friends, Alexander and Lenny, flush out the cause of the trouble, or will the terrifying toilet plague the school with problems forever?

I'd probably be fine with a graphics update and anything else is gravy.

I absolutely agree with this statement.  Better graphics and please don't F-around with the gameplay too much.
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bioshock 2 - Sea of Dreams on: February 10, 2010, 02:33:52 PM
Being a huge fan of the first Bioshock, I was worried about this sequel living up to the high standards.  Also, I was worried that this game would not feel fresh enough to really want to play through Rapture again.  After the first hour, I can 100% say that it does feel refresh and it does keep to the high standards of the first... and possibly higher.  I read a comment either on this board or on OO that the intro in this game wasn't as good as the original.  I disagree!  The intro to this game is awesome, shocking, sad, and nasty gruesome!  Loved it and so far I love the game. 
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Whatever happened to ... on: February 09, 2010, 03:31:29 AM
Yeah, I agree with Dungeon Keeper.  A good successful developer really needs to pick this up and turn it into a AAA title.
57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (2/8) on: February 09, 2010, 03:25:01 AM
Bioshock 2 PS3.  The first Bioshock is one of the best shooters ever in my book, gameplay and story.  I hope this second game keeps the 'shock' scenes just as shocking as the first game.  Seeing a big daddy for the first time was very memorable.

Shiren wii.  I loved the DS Shiren.  It is probably my favorite game on the DS.  I put well over 50 hours on it and I beat the game.  Took a long time because of the death penalty and tough monsters, but I loved that and would not have changed it.  The randomness of the dungeons, items, and monsters made each trip interesting.  Hearing that the wii game might be easier has me disappointed.  The online rescues were awesome and unique from the DS version.  Loved going out and rescuing someone or having someone rescue me.  Very original.  So that is another strike against the wii version if that is not an option.  Why would a developer yank out a key (FUN!) component like that?!!!  Really upsets me. 
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 1/22/10 on: January 22, 2010, 09:56:41 PM
Deadspace (PS3) - About halfway through Chapter 7.  I love using the Ripper.

Super Mario Bros. Wii - Love playing this game with my kids.  Very fun.

Possibly a little Dragon Age (PC) - I'm trying to kill the swamp witch lady, but I'm only level 8.  So, I probably have to back out and try another quest path because I can only get her down to 50% heal before dying.  Very good game, but I have a couple of problems with it.   The characters are too stiff and the story doesn't flow smoothly.

On christmas eve/boxing day, the wife and I were over at a friends house and we played through the first seven worlds of New Super Mario Bros Wii. What a fantastic game.

Yeah, I've been through the first four worlds and this game is a blast.  A real surprise to me of how good it is.  Especially with friends.  There are a lot of secrets in the game.
60  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekly Playlist - Year End Holiday Loot Special Edition - 12/25 on: December 27, 2009, 07:50:43 PM
I'm in the middle of a sweet two week vacation, so I have some good playing time.

Bioshock (PS3) - I actually like this better on the PS3 than the PC.  I'm about 75% through on the PS3 and it is definitely one of my favorite shooter/action games ever.
King's Bounty The Legend (PC) - I got it for $12.50 from Gamer'sGate.  I'm a huge fan of the Heroes of Might and Magic series and I'm really enjoying this game.  Very addictive and colorful!
Out of the Park Baseball 10 (PC) - I picked this up a week ago on their sale.  I haven't played since the 2007 version.
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's that time again! What's Your Game of the Year 2009 on: December 08, 2009, 12:19:11 PM
Dragon Age Origins (PC) - Awesome production, graphics, and best of all is the epic story and quests.

Runner up is Demon's Souls (PS3) - Combat and graphics are incredible.
62  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Thanksgiving Sale 5 days, new deals every day! Borderlands $33.49! on: November 28, 2009, 09:55:29 PM
Wow, Left 4 Dead GOTY edition only $7.49.  Never played it and I don't have an XBOX.  I only have a PS3.  So, this is a must buy for me and see what all the hype is.

Borderlands is very tempting at $33.49.   Or is it better to buy for the PS3?
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/09) on: November 09, 2009, 12:13:46 PM
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/25) on: October 26, 2009, 06:02:00 PM
Not sure which platform to pick for Borderlands, PC or PS3.  This was not on my buying radar until reading all the good feedback here. 

Torchlight?  Not really read much on this one.  Depending on feedback, I may make the jump.

Press Your Luck 2010 Edition - for some odd reason this actually sounds interesting to me. 

65  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Netflix to PS3 on: October 26, 2009, 05:39:46 PM
Awesome.  I definitely will be using this service on my PS3.  I have never downloaded/streamed a movie before.  Interested in how it will work.
66  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Demon's Souls PS3 US version on: October 10, 2009, 03:29:13 PM
I've spent 2 hours in 1-1.  I can't get past it.  This game is very difficult for me.  I have died well over a dozen times.  I'm always at half HP because I'm not in physical form.  How do I get back to physical form after getting killed by the first boss in the tutorial?  My guess is I have to get through 1-1?
I must say even though the initial difficulty is incredible, the graphics and combat system to me is the new standard or 'next step' for RPGs.  This just feels right.  Because of this, I'm willing to continue on.  I started with a barbarian.  Now I'm going to try with a Mage.  I hope that class is easier. 
67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: One exclusive you would like to see cross over to your console of choice on: October 01, 2009, 01:58:19 AM
I know that I'm in a very small group... I do not own a 360.  I would love Halo to come over to the PS3. 

From the PC side, I agree with Diablo 3 coming to consoles.
68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Reviews on: September 15, 2009, 08:20:38 PM
I have never played the first Ultimate Alliance.  I'm going to buy a new game today, PS3.  Should I grab the first one or the new release?  
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Sacred 2 finally gold! on: May 31, 2009, 03:29:32 PM
I haven't tried yet in this game, but is it possible to trade items between your single player toons?  You could in Titan Quest, using the inventory storage. 
70  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Sacred 2 finally gold! on: May 25, 2009, 02:07:27 PM
I held off buying this game because of the low scoring reviews but I picked it up yesterday (PS3) from the positive buzz here.  After 4 hours of playing last night, I'm really enjoying it and the addiction 'just one more quest before I stop for the night' really kicked in.  Now I need to learn how to use runes and blacksmithing.  Can't wait to play more today.
71  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/29) on: March 31, 2009, 02:39:27 AM
I got the GH: Metallica for the PS3, love it.
72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GHWT or Rock Band 2 on: March 13, 2009, 07:05:04 PM
What about customizing your band members?  Does either game allow you to customize what your band members look like and wear?  I have young kids and I don't want them watching skimpy dressed or tattoed band members on the TV.  Really it is the wife that is concerned with that.
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GHWT or Rock Band 2 on: March 13, 2009, 06:27:31 PM
Metallica's guitar hero game is coming out at the end of this month.  I want to jump on this day one and play both guitar and drums.  But it is a big expense and want to make sure the guitar hero world tour is worth the price (PS3 version).  I don't have either rock band or guitar hero.  Very interested in diving into this new gen.  Looking for some feedback to help make my decision.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: No Sacred 2 for me :( on: March 12, 2009, 07:12:06 PM
Just wanted to say that this game is a first day purchase for me when it comes out for the PS3. 
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Late to the DS party. Recommend me some game on: January 10, 2009, 11:57:27 PM
Some great games on the DS.  Though I really wanted to like elite beat agents but it is just too hard, I can't get past one of the mid-levels for the life of me.   icon_frown

No order but these games I played the most.  I can play at anytime, good stuff here:
Mario Kart
New Super Mario
Shiren Mystery dungeon
Puzzle Quest - perfect DS game
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2
Pheonix Wright games
Animal Crossing
Final Fantasy 4
The world ends with you

About the only thing I would really like to see on the DS that hasn't come out... An original paper mario game
76  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's Your Game of the Year? on: December 23, 2008, 04:32:18 PM
My game of the year: Fallout 3 - love the setting, combat, and exploration

These games are also incredible.  I loved each of them!

Dead Space PS3 - best graphics and sound on the system.  Any gamer that has a HD-TV, this is a must have.  Incredible game, loved the whole thing.  I liked this better than Bioshock. 

Far Cry 2 PS3 - This game must be played for a few hours before realizing the greatness that it is.  Again, loved the openess and exploration.  Combat is awesome with kick ass weapons.  Lots of ways to go about killing a town full of enemies.

GTA 4 PS3 - Driving, music, and tons of missions.  

77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: your 2008 sleepers on: December 03, 2008, 03:30:38 AM
Shiren the wanderer for the DS.  Put in tons of hours on this game during the summer.  Loved how you could connect wifi within the game and rescue or be rescued from anyone.  Very cool feature. 

Dead Space PS3.  My lord the graphics and sounds are jaw dropping in this game.  Never heard of it before until it was released.  Best PS3 game in my opinion.  Liked it just as much as Bioshock for the PC.
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Best kid games? on: November 22, 2008, 01:51:26 PM
There are three games my kids love and keep coming back to:
Super Paper Mario
Mario Party 8
Mario Kart
79  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/10) on: November 11, 2008, 12:30:45 AM
WoW Lich King in my hands at midnight.  And more than likely COD World at War for the PS3, unless the reviews are not good.
80  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 2 on: October 20, 2008, 10:32:53 PM
Can't wait to pick this up on Wednesday.  Just not sure which platform, PS3 or PC.
