I loved it. The story was super dumb, yeah, but everything I wanted to be there was there. The Turtles personalities were nailed, and the action was great. I had some qualms with how they changed the backstory (namely Splinter) but I didn't get too hung up on it. Easily the second best TMNT movie ever made.

I just fired this up for the first time on Steam and I'm having some problems with the 360 controller. It works fine up until I either pause or go to the inventory screen. After that all the controls stop working except the right stick. I can save and continue to get everything working again, but every time it does the exact same thing. I'm using the wireless 360 controller with one of those official wireless PC adapters. Google isn't helping. Any ideas?
Dead Space has always been an action series. Dead Space 3 is fantastic, definitely a worthy entry in the series.
I honestly think that people don't remember what Dead Space 1 actually was. It's not a survival horror game, ammo and health packs are plentiful. You can buy them both from the very first store in the game. And as far as it being scary goes, I guess your mileage may vary. I'm playing it right now (granted for the 4th or 5th time) and it's not scary in the slightest. The atmosphere is great, yes, but the only real scares are jump scares, which are never good. They literally give you the best gun in the game right off the bat and enough ammo to blast your way through anything that comes into your path. It's hard to feel terror when you're more than capable of dealing with any situation that arises.
What Dead Space 1 actually is is a kick ass action game that has the best combat in the genre. Dead Space 2 refined that combat and made it even better. And, judging from the demo, Dead Space 3 will continue the trend. I've played through the demo at least half a dozen times and spent a good amount of time just messing around in the gun creation area and I can't get enough.

A simple, violent but (oddly) serene love story with an awesome 'kinda '80s' aesthetic. The cinematography is top notch and the action sequences are succinct, violent and frantic. My favorite movie of 2011 and one of my top five favorites. Fantastic movie.
I came in here to post pretty much this. Was my 5th or 6th time seeing it. Everyone always says how slow it is, and I can understand that. I thought so too my first couple viewings, but now I don't even notice. I love every single second of it. It's one of those movies I could watch every single day and never tire of. And the music stays in my head for days and days afterwards.
Real human being and a real hero.
