In this order to get started (you are destined for failure as you have TWO Witcher games, Fallout 3 GotY, and Just Cause 2....HUGE GAMES):

1)Limbo because it's fast and a good warm up without breaking you too quick
2)Dead Space 2 because it's fairly quick and fun to cleanse the palate
3) Walking Dead....you know why and it's all true
4) Portal 2 to again wash the palate and get into a more humorous and fun mood
5) You're on your own but you're making good progress by this point!

@slag: Have you played ZHP? I'm thinking it might be up your alley. It's about as bizarre a game as NIS has ever made, and that's saying something, but the gameplay is really pretty great.

@superwristbands: You know, you're kind of right. The concept seems way more out there than what the videos are showing. Then again, this is NIS we're talking about, so I fully expect to cringe and delight in turns at its lunacy.

I had never heard of this game but saw it on the ad for Gamestop, read the info blurb they have there, and knew I had to come make sure SOMEONE on GiantBomb was aware of this thing. Worried about it being crazy? Fear not! Check this quote out: "Featuring off the wall armor, weapons, and more. Want tank treads for legs? Or maybe race car legs instead? Well, there you go!"

So, yeah it's going to be a level of nuts I don't personally encounter very often. Enjoy!

It used to be Speilberg but he's gone more into the historical than the fantastical, which isn't bad but just not his FULL potential for creativity in my book.

However, Baz Luhrman has captivated me since he made "Romeo + Juliet". The way he frames the picture, the songs and sound he chooses, and the quick cut style that's like a goofy Zach Snyder in a way is just bewitching to my eyes. That guy's movies aren't always the best films but they always look amazing. The use of the kind of bleached out sandy beaches in "Romeo", the surreal guys climing the wall in "Moulin Rouge", and for the love of God the overblown parties in "The Great Gatsby" (which, FYI, is also the best movie released this year so far and likely to be the rest of the year)....you can't look away! It's just amazing!

I was on the fence given the short time between this and GTA5 but SR2 Shaundi and now Johnny G. both is enough that I'm heading to GameStop after work tomorrow to pre-purchase this mofo

Another vote for "I'd prefer MP3 to listen to at work" here. Waiting patiently but anxiously.

They did a "teaser" on Facebook the other day. The next DLC skins will be Classic Harley, Teen Titan Cyborn, that Pre New 52 Wonder Woman costume with the jeans and leather jacket, and Black Adam (although this is just the popular speculation from what I saw).

Freaking hate that we don't get Black Canary or any Watchmen....Scorpion is OK but I'd have rather kept it comic book crazy and had them put in like Howard the Duck or something.

I'm a big comic fan but no idea about MOBA or really any MMO type games. I thought it would be fun to see if any other comic nerds were in the community and see who we're hoping to see in the Infinite Crisis game.

Especially in light of the kind of disappointing and safe roster in Injustice to see some of the weird picks already is cool! I know we saw that cancelled Gotham By Gaslight game but I didn't think we'd ever REALLY see a Gaslight Batman let alone Joker and Catwoman! Zatanna seems like a refreshing choice too.

I've love to see Black Canary, who is my favorite DC character after Batman. Do you think they'll go totally bananas and have John Constantine (and if so, how much would it cost to get a Keanu Reeves skin in the game?!).

Regular, Undead, and Chainsaw flavors?!

I just want to see some weird versions of the usual suspects (Superman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn when she's announced) because it's kind of old seeing the same costumes on the same characters over and over. I did see a new Wonder Woman costume in an email they sent about requesting Beta access where she was in a kind of punk/rockabilly get up with a chainsaw on a stick...anyone know where this is from cause I'm totally lost and didn't see it on ComicVine.

Well thanks a bunch Mr./Ms. Th3irdEye! I've never heard of Curse before but I got a code (sadly there's someone in their community using my name....grrr!). I look forward to trying it out if I get picked.

I've never done a MOBA before, do you play? Is it easy to drop into or do you need to know a lot of short hand lingo (like DPS, tank, agro....which I had no idea about for years until my WoW playing friends sat me down and told me about the MMO version of the birds and the bees).

@sdharrison: No FreddieW is amazing and seems to have a real passion for gaming culture in general.

I can't reply to anyone person specifically but I really like Yahtzee. Sure he's not a serious game reviewer but on an entertainment level he's really funny to me and my kids.

I didn't click through to see the rest of the list but I feel like Penny-Arcade should be on there given their expanding network that covers the deeper end of the industry and what games mean as well as their whole Child's Play thing. I would put them in the top 3 over anyone else on that list.

I am also a huge admirer of Greg Miller and ANYTHING he says (if I'm allowed to talk about rival company personalities).
