Not really the games themselves, but I do have to convince myself to play online multiplayer games. Never played shooters much and had to talk myself into Gears 3. Ended up enjoying the experience once I got the hang of it.
The last book I read was 'Roadside Picnic' by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. It's basically the book that inspired the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series and a staple in post-apocalypse literature. I came by this book when it was referenced in Metro 2033. It's a great book and a must read if your a fan of dark sci-fi.
I would rather not pay for online access for a console. On the other hand, having to be online to be able to play anything on said console sounds like an "okay" thing now. By the end of the consoles life cycle though, does it just become a brick or do they push out a final update or patch that gives it the ability to play games offline? Either one is kinda shitty in my opinion.
For now, rumors are still rumors. I'll make my final call after the Microsoft press conference and E3.
After sleeping on it. I'm okay with Batgirl now. Sure it's a little too much in the Batman camp of characters, but the Batman franchise is an easy sell. Also did some digging and what are the odds that "Scorpion" could be the obscure DC character that barely anyone knows about than the MK one everyone is thinking it is?
