Just got mine 30 mins ago. I was extremely aware I had signed up.

Download speed is fairly pathetic at the moment, but I'll take it.

South Park is still a thing? I thought it stopped being funny and/or relevant 10 years ago.

Guess I was wrong. Consider me disappointed.

Replace "South Park" with "The Simpsons" and make it 15 years ago.

South Park is still funny. Though I don't think I need a South Park game in my life.

It's just what I needed right now. I don't have the time to slog through 60 hours of Bethesda's latest epic, but big, loud, stupid, and fun is perfect.

This is the first SR I've played, and it's actually much higher quality than I expected. The PC graphics are quite good, the cut scenes are well done, and the end game content is spectacularly ridiculous.

With COD I know what I'm getting, also as a matter of taste I prefer the COD-style of first person gameplay to Battlefield. I like the faster pace, I like the ability to lone wolf it as opposed to having to depend on the numbskulls on my team.

It's entirely possible to ignore your squad and still have a lot of fun with BF3. I did it in BF:BC2, and am doing the same thing this time around. Sure, I'll dump off heals or ammo if I feel like it, but for the most part I'm just running around shooting dudes.

CoD has always felt claustrophobic to me. I just don't get the feeling of immersion BF brings.

Youtube is full of D3 beta play-throughs.

Ahh, yah. I had the wrong weapon.

There's likely a ridiculously obvious answer to this that I'm missing... but how the hell do I upgrade weapons? I have an upgrade kit, but have no idea how to use it.

Who buys boxed PC games at Gamestop? The last time I was in there, they had all of about 3 square inches of shelf space dedicated to PC.

I hung up at 64% decryption for awhile, but it completed in 4-5 mins. Played through the tutorial level.

Music is great, cut scenes are nice, the titles sequence is really cool, voice acting is good. Gameplay is fluid.. took me a minute to get used to the cover system, but it's well designed.

BTW, people complaining about the graphics engine being mediocre are idiots. It looks great. (I have all settings maxed at 1680x1050.)

I gave it a pass on Xbox because I thought it would be better with a mouse. At this point, I think I'll just give it a pass entirely.

Oh, well. Deus Ex comes out tomorrow anyway.
