I'll be getting it on console also. I'd love to get it on PC for mods but it's just not possible (can't afford to upgrade PC).

Bought KZ3 today, resisted splurging on the Helghast edition. I also played MVC3 which I wish I hadn't as now I really want it so badly.
I was reminded how terrible the 360 d-pad is too. I'd have to get the special pad they released if I played on the 360; I really don't understand how the d-pad got through the design and testing phase like that. I kind of feel the sane about the back triggers on the Dualshock 3. Though it's no way near as debilitating (and if you really want you can by little attachments to make them more like 360 triggers).

But yeah, MVC3 is amaze

It got through because it's decent.

Triggers on ps3 controller are shite, I have triggers for it though.

I caved and have ordered Bulletstorm.

I've abandoned gaming for a lot of the last 6 months in favour of getting back into being more creative with stuff, but I felt this was too hard to resist. It looks so mad and violent and fun.

Plus the 'Epic Edition' was cheaper on ebay than the normal edition anywhere. I don't normally go for collectors/special editions but you get access to the Gears Of War 3 multiplayer beta with it (Whenever they release that, presumably about August). Lovely.

Bulletstorm has set a new standard for FPS's for me. That standard being "Does this game give me extra points for setting someone on fire, flinging him into the air then shooting him in the testicles to put him out?". Seriously though, this is the game that Duke Nukem Forever is going to have to beat to be taken seriously at all (and even then I'll still have trouble), big dumb action filled fun.

Even the demo let me pull someone towards me, then shoot them, then kick them, then shoot the explodey thing into them then detonate them.

Happy times.

It gets really fun when you get the silly weapons like the sniper rifle with guided bullets or remote detonated explosive bola launcher. Then even more fun when you unlock the upgrades for them.

It took me time but I adjusted to the 360 pad for fighting games eventually. For Street Fighter style affairs neither the 360 or PS3 has a controller fit for purpose really, a lack of six face buttons to properly map the controlls to is the problem really. I tend to end up using the analogue and d-pad in either case though, switching as and when I need it according to which moves are easier to pull on the different inputs.

Just checked my pre-orders and it seems Deus Ex has had another release date set at last - 27/05/11. So now instead of having Dragon Age 2 and Deus Ex fight for my time DA2 has some nice breathing space. LA Noire and Deus Ex only have a week between them though so I wonder what'll grip me more when both are in my hands. Feels like a good time to be into games, there's a serious abundance of AAA titles this year.

True true that they could both do with six button fighting pads (there must be a 3rd party pad that does this?).

I thought Infamous 2 was out next month but that's not till June. Can't afford games next month which sucks as I wanted to get Deus Ex. Portal 2 in April....so many games this year though, you're damn right there

There are fighting pads made by Madcatz but they don't have any analogue sticks at all so they're limited in their use. I'll stick to my arcade stick, that does the job better than the other options.

Oh Lord, Bulletstorm is on Steam, now I'm going to have to get it. And just when the Dead Money DLC was released too, oh well, these tins of beans should see me through the week.

Congraturation! Anything in particular you reckon you'll be focusing on or will it just be assorted gaming gubbins?


The pre-order bonuses for LA Noire have been announced and it seems shopto are going to miss out on my order because they don't have anything to do with it. The details are here.
I've chosen the play.com offer of an extra mission and the soundtrack. Bit of a bugger that there are missions exclusive to different companies though, I'd rather pre-order bonuses were kept standard between retailers if proper content is at stake as opposed to costumes or other superfluous stuff that doesn't matter so much. I did notice a little disclaimer indicating that the content will be available as DLC after 30 days so provided it's not too expensive I can cope with that as a compromise.

Okay, so I've just d/led Dead Money on Steam and now a lot of red exclamation point artifacts for missing code/artwork/whatever have appeared and they‘re EVERYWHERE. Anyone have any ideas, otherwise I guess I'll just wait for a patch.
