Its a double edge sword for me as i like how saint row 3 realizes it can be different from GTA by just being fun at all times and giving freedom to the player but i felt the story and characters toke a big backseat aside from being funny. Saint row 2 felt more of a bigger game with mission feeling more detailed and the story and characters were far more interesting in that fun b movie gang war kind of way.
I don't get you point, the 3DS has been on fire lately with new titles so a few ports is easy money for publishers. For Nintendo they have promised many of these older games to be on the 3DS library and are taking their time in releasing them. So can't say they are leaning too much on nostalgia on the 3DS when their library is pretty rock solid now and even for the next few months with great titles lined up.
I would have to disagree because at the end of the day they add content to keep us on the site. Having the quick looks and other videos not helping everyday things can get pretty slow here when nothing is happening and when lacking other features. So i say why take it away when it will only make people go elsewhere to find it.
I live right outside Orlando and I definitely recommend Universal over Disney, especially Islands of Adventure. Disney is great is you have kids with you, but it isn't really as fun for adults as Universal is. Hopefully you can go to both Universal and Islands of Adventures, but if you have to choose one then you should definitely go to Islands. It has the most rides, and also has the Harry Potter park which is awesome, although it can get pretty crowded.
The problem you face is shooters with a larger focus often fall closer to niche titles that don't sell great numbers, while something like call of duty is printing money for publishers. So you will see far more shooters go the call of duty route then being some large open shooter. Now you will get some surprises and games that come close like far cry 3, Bioshock, and metro and crisis but i guess these would be more comprises then the full fleshed out open shooters.
@phantomzxro: That second bit really wasn't very spoiler-free, and you may as well edit it out because yes, it was said earlier, and in a more nonspecific way that still got the point across about skills.
