The Witcher series is extremely dense in terms of lore and storytelling. The political struggles of Temeria in The Witcher are almost nearly identical to that of Westeros but I feel the addition of all the monsters and how the story solely focuses on Geralt's plight through all the madness makes it a bit more approachable than the 15+ POV characters in GOT. Also, the world of Mass Effect is basically infinite as it not only includes the Reaper cycle with Shepard, but all the previous ones, along with the one that created the Reapers which could provide countless other stories.

@queersecretary: Jump on that Dark Souls train, brother man. Either one, they are both fantastic

@corevi: I think Dan will help him out, but that's immediately what I thought too haha.

I think they will go for Shadow of Mordor for GOTY, but I think the indie titles like Jazzpunk and Shovel Knight have a better chance than people think.

I think Dark Souls was better, but Dark Souls II was a great game too. Dark Souls II just lacked the same oomph Dark Souls had when it first came out, I think because most people knew what to expect.

Looks like they're back on Steam in the USA.

This certainly saves me the trouble of finding it on PS3 for a decent price. Hopefully the port will live up to expectations.

I've always liked Shaun but I have to wonder if CBS had known about this before the layoffs recently, would they have kept Carolyn Petit or Tom McShea for the editorial position instead?

I feel like Dark Souls II had much better gameplay, but Dark Souls was better at the story telling. I also think the characters you meet in Dark Souls, such as Solaire and Siegmeyer, make it a far more endearing game as well. I don't remember a single character from Dark Souls II except that lady who I had to painstakingly warp to so I could level up. On the other hand, the environments of Dark Souls II were more aesthetically pleasing then the drab grey and black of Lordran (although Ash Lake is still gorgeous.) Anyway, I tend to be 50/50 as far as which I think is the better game.

I... like Nickelback.

Star Fox Adventures is a good game, on the edge of greatness. I loved every minute of playing catch with my dinosaur buddy. And then, he would fucking EVOLVE, right in front of you. So awesome!

I will never get behind Nickelback haha. I did enjoy Star Fox Adventures though, it was basically Zelda albeit not nearly as good.
