It just seemed like a game that could have spent more time in the development oven. I loved some parts of Mass Effect 3, but those tedious fetch quests (if you can even call them "quests") just seemed like cheap padding. I sort of liked the game's multiplayer, but would rather the developer's focused their attention solely on the campaign. Parts of the game just felt rushed. Even so, BioWare made a quality pice if entertainment, and I'm excited to see where they go after Dragon Age 3.

Nice that they fixed the game's fucked up difficulty, but I remember this patch came out weeks after I had beaten the game. It doesn't have much replay value, but I suppose it's better late than never.

Minus the terrible last 2/3rds of Dead Island. God the city was awful.

I'd take the city over the sewers. Or the jungle. Or the prison. Or the final boss.

I tried it for Battlefield 3. It set a couple things to ultra, changed the FOV from 75 to 90, then set all the effects to low and turned off ambient lighting. I had a 60+ frame rate but the game looked like a shadow of its former self. It just wasn't worth the visual downgrade so I bumped the settings back to high/very high where I get around 30 FPS. The GeForce Experience is a neat concept, but there are still some kinks Nvidia needs to fix.

Super Mario 64 was a big one for me. Assassin's Creed, Crysis and Uncharted 2 were all impressive in different ways.

I'll keep this in mind, thanks.

@Gamer_152: Your post has more care and thought than this thread deserves.

I heard the game has some issues with ATI cards. I suggest knocking DirectX down to 9 and seeing how things go from there. Other than that, either play some other games while you wait for a patch, or sell your ATI card and go Nvidia (this is if you have money to burn).

I remember Vinny hosting the HotSpot for a little while, I wonder if he just didn't want to host the Bombcast or if Ryan just really wanted to or what. Anybody know?

I actually talked to Vinny about it, and he told me he was totally OK with not having to host. It takes a lot of work to move conversations along in a way that feels natural and not having to worry about that took a huge pressure off his shoulders. Hopefully that answers your question :).
