Honestly, I think Kane and Lynch 2 would make a great film. It would be easy enough to condense that story into two hours. Essentially it's just about two guys who fucked up without realizing it and had to deal with the consequences. It would hinge on getting the right actors, because it would need to be a driven by the characters. The "No more deals" line would be extremely powerful with the right delivery and character development.

Not sure who would act in it, but David Ayer would be the right choice to write/direct.

@archer88: Borderlands was pretty popular.

I guess I was thinking more of Borderlands 2. In general that was still a popular game, I just don't see that reflected here. I know Jeff gave it a favorable review and there was excitement for it right off the bat, but it seemed like by the time the end of the year awards rolled around GB people didn't care much for it. Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, despite being considered by many to be the best DLC for Borderlands 2, received a pretty negative response here.

Look at the soon to be released Pre-sequel. When it was announced there seemed to be a lot more hatred for the series than excitement. Despite being the third game in a popular series it has had little discussion or coverage. Hopefully that will pick up closer to its release.

I haven't played Destiny, but based on the shortcomings listed on these boards and the Bombcast(reused locations, poor story/story isn't engaging/ story too self serious, ok loot, classes feel similar, limited set of abilities) I'm surprised Borderlands isn't more popular in this community. To me, it seems like Borderlands 1 and 2 is similar in concept to Destiny, but doesn't have all of those issues. Did people really hate Tiny Tina and Handsome Jack that much? Maybe they just have the loudest or most prevalent voice.

Advent Rising.

Too Human?

Came here to say this. Loved both of those games.

I can't figure out how they settled on this design. If they hadn't moved the Start and Select buttons they could have put a proper second analog stick there. Instead they half-assed it with a poorly placed nub.

I don't mind a new iteration on the 3DS hardware, but I'm kind of pissed that it means there will games exclusive to it. I haven't seen anything yet, but I'm concerned that when Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate comes to North America it will be New 3DS exclusive. I only got my 3DS XL last December; it would suck to have to upgrade a year later.

@dudeglove: Yep, I'll Be Home For Christmas starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas is a subtle remake of Die Hard.

I thought you were joking, but then I remembered he makes a detour to a Bavarian village, so Germans really do get in his way....mind blown!
