Oh man, had you connected it on monday you could've gotten Geometry Wars 2, Stacking and Limbo for $5, $5 and $7,50 respectively. Now they're back at $10, $15 and $15. I'd say buy a few games you want now and wait for other games to go on sale. Xbox live has some great games, but aside from periodic sales, they rarely drop in price.

I played Skyrim yesterday, which I think is amazing, however I've played that game on and off for almost a year now. I don't think any of the games I've played since Skyrim's release, which includes Saints Row the Third, Rayman: Origins (I haven't played enough of it though) and Final Fantasy XIII, are amazing games. Actually, maybe FIFA 12 would qualify...

Of games from this generation, I'd say GTAIV, Dragon Age: Origins, Bastion, Batman Arkham Asylum and Mass Effect. I have to say, since it's been mentioned so often here, that I didn't like BioShock.

@ManU_Fan10ne: The disparity between the teams in Premier League is so huge, it's hardly worth watching. You already know now, at the start of the season that the team that wins comes from Manchester, the other team from Manchester will come in second, and Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham will fight to finish in the top 5. While Barcelona or Real Madrid will take first, and the other second, there's more competition among the other teams in La Liga.

Either Dishonored or Hitman. I voted for Dishonored. XCOM is probably third.

Because those brain chemical are the meaning of life? Basically, the whole human species can be summed up as "finding new ways to release chemicals into the brain to make us feel good".

A good video game movie will come about when a competent director learns which concessions he has to make to his movie to keep the spirit of the video game alive. I think MK did fairly well, but the PG-13 rating didn't do it any favors. On the flip side, Super Mario Bros. did very poorly because they changed the colorful mushroom kingdom into a post-apocalyptic alternate reality, and turned Bowser into a human (surely, an animated movie would've been better).

Hello, wall of text. Wow, you decided to give us all your personal information up front, didn't you?

Anyway, welcome.

If I were to view this completely objectively, I'd say Bretons are the best race. The fact that you can get 80% magic resist without resist magic equipment (perks and standing stone). The Orcs Berserker Rage is really good too and High Elves run faster because they're taller than everyone.

Khajiit, Imperials and Wood Elves don't fare as well, since their abilities aren't particularly powerful(or just very situational).

Overall, what race you play doesn't really matter. The damage output is pretty much the same across the board. The race I played the most in Morrowind was High Elf, because they got a ridiculous amount of magicka. In Oblivion I played Breton because of easy magic immunity(Bretons could actually become completely immune to magic and melee attacks). In Skyrim, I've actually leaned more towards Khajiit. I just find the nigh-eye power really handy. Sadly, vampires get it for free and vampires are generally overpowered.

*sigh* I just got my Xbox back from repair and have a big stack of games to play, and the first thing I do is put in Skyrim. I guess I'll play through all those Assassin's Creed games, Resident Evil 5, Rayman and about 5 other games later...
