Sleeping Dogs is so good. I need to play through it again. (disclaimer: I also really like Hong Kong styled crime media though). DmC is also super good.

Too be fair, those are the only ones on this list I've played, but they are both fine games.

@mb: That's exactly how I feel. I really like this game. I think it does a lot of stuff right. Now it's forcing me to learn how to actually play a city builder/management game.

@jjweatherman: Yeah, I've definitely watched some of his videos. The reason I'm sort of going through them all is to figure out what weapon I like. I didn't have a weapon that just jumped out at me right away. So, I figured I'd go through all these and find out what I liked. The Insect Glaive has definitely been one of my favorites so far.

This is my first MH game. I'm still going through all the weapons quests, and although there definitely is some getting used to the way the game handles combat and animation priority, I'm finding that I'm getting excited to go out on a real hunt.

This is my first Monster Hunter, but I'd absolutely love to play with some people here, possibly show me some of the ropes. I was able to track down a N3ds today, so once I get my NNID transferred over i'll be ready to go. Can I get an add to the PM?

I actually ended up getting one at my local game shop, and turned in my 3ds XL for 85 bucks, which isn't bad. Now I'm trying to contact Nintendo to move my NNID, but seems like everyone is doing that, so it's super slow.

I don't know why I procrastinated so much, but yesterday I decided I should call Gamestop and see if you can still pre-order. Unsurprisingly enough, they said their first shipment is sold out. While I'll still probably drive around a bit tomorrow and see if there are any extras, it's not looking hopefully.

Have any of you run into the same situation? Is this console selling fast, or is it just the $100 trade-in that has been rushing for one (don't get me wrong, that was a big reason on why I did it as well.)

this doesn't seem egregious.

aren't they essentially just selling in-game items? i mean- it's a little weird that access to these items is simultaneously being paid for (in other words, you're potentially buying digital goods sight-unseen)

Yup, this is essentially a pack you could buy in the game. So they are just making you buy it up front and also giving you access to the game. I don't really see a problem with it. I mean, it is by no means my favorite way of granting Beta access, but it does not seem particularly dirty.

This is one of the games that makes me regret trading in my PS3, and an unopened copy of this game...

I don't think I'd invite my friends over to see my sex desk, but to each their own.
