Eh. I got one of the DLC for the game on the 360 and couldn't make myself play it, and got the whole game and all the DLC for dirt cheap on Steam and only beat the Zombie DLC (and hated that one) but I still liked the main game.

For this one, I'll probably get the main game at some point but I'll wait for the DLC to drop to near nothing on a Steam sale (which is where I'll be getting it, if I get it).

Yeah, I was the dumbfuck that got three of the DLCs before I realized I wouldn't want to play any of it. To this day, I haven't finished any of them. I probably never will.

It's a shame that the DLC-quality for Borderlands started out really poorly and skyrocketed with the Secret Armory and Robot Revolution... so I'd guess that a lot of people are in your situation.

@The_Nubster: It's not "locked" behind any "walls". If you pre-order, you get it. If you don't, you can buy it for $10.

This is the right way to do pre-order bonuses. (Note: I'm not saying that I think pre-order bonuses are a good thing.)

Not buying another Xbox anyway. The 360 had a very strong first few years and now it's incredibly weak. The only reason people will stick with it is because that's what all their friends have.

Unlike the PS3?

Last time around, I got a PS3 near launch and later picked up an Xbox (about 2 years ago?). I've been considering going the other way this time around, seeing how disappointed I've been with Sony recently. Then again, they're both pretty terrible.

That is, of course, assuming that PC releases dry up again as the new consoles are released.

Yeah, this probably doesn't mean what you think it does. And just like when Valve said it, people are overreacting.

Because, as it turns out, Portal 2 was a terrible game because of multiplayer, amirite?

Partly, it's still a trend to be worried about, because the most these multiplayer efforts tend to detract from the focused experience we tend to be interested in, by taking development effort away from it. Dead Space 2 seems to be a good example of this - which, while interesting, did not hold interest very long.

On the other hand, if this means more, and better implemented co-op games, then I am all for it. Gaming is a lot more fun when you can share it.

4-6 hours, weekdays.

I can typically fall asleep within 5 min of trying...almost whenever. My lack of sleep is more a case of having too many ideas and things to do, staying up late to maximize time, then needing to get up early to go to work.

Undisturbed, I can easily sleep 9-10 hours straight on weekends... though it's getting rare getting even that time.

From what I can remember, Portable Ops doesn't have a whole lot of story, but if you have a PSP/PSV, why not play it? I thought it was pretty good... only stopped because my PSP stopped working, and I wasn't getting another one.

@Sanj: Peace Walker is essential. The game was called "Metal Gear Solid 5", and there is marketing material that said so. It's a pretty good story too, if Metal Gear stories is your thing.

When I saw Torchlight was being released the same day as Borderlands 2, I laughed. Feels like an awfully poor decision, but I guess they need to get it out stat before Summer ends.

I'll be playing Borderlands 2, and... if it's anything near as good as I'm hoping, I'll be playing that for quite some time to come :)

Maybe Torchlight 2 later.

Yep. I'm ready for more Metal Gear.

As much as I want to see what else Kojima could do (like ZoE, other stuff), I'm really excited for more Metal Gear.
