American Psycho is great!

Posted by IceColdGamer

I hope so! I've never seen it but it was only 10 bucks and I like Christian Bale.

If you enjoy American Psycho, you should check out The Talented Mr. Ripley. I think both films are pretty similar in an odd way.

Ripley is a great movie. I'm actually writing a college paper on that. ^_^

Ah man, why would you buy Transformers 2? You couldn't pay me to watch that movie again. Though at least on DVD you can hit fast forward whenever the filler characters are on screen.

great list but Transformers????
well like  SuperfluousMoniker  said you can only watch the parts where all human characters are absent in a DVD

Dragon Age: Origins looks really good but I personally wasn't that impressed by Army of Two.

I had a little money left over in my paycheck, so I picked up Vagrant Story and Strider 2 for the PS1, along with Schindler's List, Fight Club, and Hot Fuzz

Yea but the Devastator scene in Blu-Ray is pretty epic. Almost worth the purchase alone.

All excellent movies. Sadly I'm uneducated about Vagrant Story or Strider.

Yeah, it's been near the top of my wishlist for some time now, and I was able to pick it up for about 30 dollars. I think i've still got it up at number 5 if you want to take a look

This goes for me as well.  I did own Army of Two and I didn't see what was so cool.  Anyways, how is Dragon Age: Origins on a console?  If I do get this game, it will be on Xbox.

It's not too bad. I'm about 2.5 hours in and just getting into the meat of the combat. It's very...Busy. Combat can turn into a big clusterfuck if you don't plan things out accordingly. I'm also not impressed at the lack of Weapon Set Swapping being a hot key. To switch my Warrior from Long Bow to Sword+Shield I need to go through 3 menus. 
 
Graphically it's not the best looking game. I guess they did the best with what they could fit on a single disc. Your character has no vocal speech as of yet, simply choose the dialog and text is displayed.
 
Storywise it's great, very indepth, lots of Codex collecting like in Mass Effect which I enjoy.
