Salò, or the 120 days of sodom, there is simply nothing else that can match how horrible it is to watch this movie.

Came here to say this. My roommate and I had a hard time watching this; I've never been so uncomfortable watching a film.

You can't have a meaningful introspective moment if your mind is busy with a game.

Not really a fan of Pink Floyd and was pleasantly surprised when I started listening to the Syd Barrett era stuff. Much more my speed.

The problem with Dead Space 3's microtransactions is that you don't know that the game is balanced for them until you've seen the game. When you first see them, there's a sense of dread because you get the feeling that the game might favor players that pay the extra money. I'm okay with microtransactions in games, but they put a damper on the fun since you're always thinking about what you're missing by not paying the extra money.

I think the best combination is a desktop and a tablet. I have a laptop right now, but I find they die relatively fast (2-3 years) so the next time out I'm going to get a desktop. Everything I need my laptop for a tablet could do just as well (email, videos, browsing the web).

PS: I'm convinced no one actually needs a laptop for school unless they travel a lot or are in a course that requires one. Do your serious work at home or at the computer lab.

My PS3 controller is held together with red tuck tape and only rumbles on one side, but it still works great. No point in replacing something that ain't broken.

Remember how sick of the underground racing scene everyone was and how great it was that they were rebooting Need For Speed with Hot Pursuit, a game that returned the series to its arcade roots? No?

I'm going to echo what a lot of people have been saying:

- Jagged Alliance 2 v1.13 (I think the patch/mod is a must have). I found this game harder than xcom, but much more rewarding once you get into it.

- Fallout 1/2/Tactics. Tactics isn't as good as 1 or 2, but it's entirely focused on combat and is more complex because of that.

- Silent Storm
