I can't believe Saints Row The Third didn't take GOTY. Being #1 on Ryan's, Jeff's AND Vinny's list, and also being included on Patrick and Brad's list, it easily should have won out over Skyrim, which got #1 on Patrick and Brad's list, #2 on Jeff's and not even on Ryan and Vinny's list. I'm currently listening to the podcast to figure out how this happened.

I love the way Ryan grabs the money off of the table.

Steam once again had their big summer sale and for the second summer in a row, I spent more than I should have. The sale lasted from June 30th - July 10th and the following chronicles my purchases, so you can once again laugh at me for how much I spent on PC games that I may or may not get around to playing:

This year's damage: $70.55

Last year's damage: $155.62

This just might be my favorite racing game of all time.  I don't know, that Burnout 3: Takedown was pretty good too.

Do people that complain about missing out on pre-order bonuses realize that pre-ordering on Amazon is free?

The gameplay definitely seems very Unreal Tournament.  The level design and aesthetic looks like a strange mix of UT, Quake and Turok though, haha.

I'm going on an all-day hike tomorrow in the White Mountains and I'm going to visit my girlfriend on Sunday, so I won't have much time for gaming other than tonight.  Here's what I'll be playing tonight and Sunday night:
 

  • DJ Hero (360):  After putting this down for a few weeks to play some traditional games, I saw the DJ Hero 2 demo on the XBL Marketplace.  I feel like I should finish the first before the second comes out next month, so I'm going to try to get a few sets done this weekend.
  • Guitar Hero 5 (360):  I don't have high expectations for this but I thought, "$10 for 85 songs?  Why not?!"  I'm going to tackle the guitar career mode for now and get to the drums later.
    I would have gone for #1, but 11 is my favorite number.  #realtalk
  • Madden 11 (360):  I've completed all the Madden Moments just in time for them to release the weekly Madden Moments, which is an awesome feature.  On my first try I'm currently #11 in the world (I think) on this Madden Moment (pictured right)!  This weekend I'll be finishing my last game in the regular season (currently 14-1) and trying to win the Superbowl before starting another season on a harder difficulty.
  • Dead Space Extraction (Wii):  I've heard I'll probably start and finish this in one sitting, due to my love for light-gun games and its shortness.  I'm definitely looking forward to it though!
 
Can't wait for the Pats game on Sunday and Halo Reach next Tuesday!  What are you guys playing this weekend?

If you want to get super technical, the motive for Monday Night Combat should be "digital release", not "retail release"
 
Great idea for a list though, recommended!

I wrapped up God of War last week and I've got a bit of time to play some games this weekend, but I'm going to try to spend most of my time outside.  Here's the short list:
 

  • DeathSpank (XBLA):  I'm still really enjoying this game, but I find myself skipping through most of the dialogue to get back to the combat and questing.  I don't think I have more than an hour or two left.
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii):  Still working my way through this one.  Very slowly.
 
Looking forward to the start of NFL preseason (Cowboys/Bengals) on Sunday night, as well as Madden '11 on Tuesday, Monday Night Combat on Wednesday and Patriots preseason opener on Thursday!  I'm also thinking about finally fixing my desktop PC now that I've got the money for it.
