That's actually a really good idea about how to handle curse, I'd much rather it be like that than what it currently is. I love the Ring of Favour and Protection, my first priority when starting a new character is to make a beeline to Lautrec and kill him and equip that ring for the rest of the game. I think Demon's Souls had way more useful rings overall though.

I know this will never happen but I would like to see them get rid of invading or at least make it optional when playing as a human. I'd prefer not having to play offline just to not have some random person invade me. I can count on one hand the number of times I've been invaded and invaded myself in both Souls games, actually I don't think I've ever experienced either in Dark Souls since I'm almost never human and when I am I either play offline or kill myself directly after.

EDIT: I'd also like to see them get rid of weapons with unique powers, they cost far too much durability to be useful. If they didn't replace an attack I'd be fine with them but I don't like giving up the strong attack for some useless special effect.

I suspect this will be an unpopular opinion but I hate how much credit and praise Andrew Luck will get from this game. Any decent quarterback could've done the same against a collapsing Kansas City defense. I think Luck is a good QB right now with huge potential but seriously, with headlines like this you'd think he's been a QB for ten years not his bloody second year. In my opinion, Alex Smith played a much better game but will go mostly unnoticed since he was only inches away from winning.

The only two games that anybody picked that would definitely be in my top ten are GTAV and Fire Emblem and nobody picked Tomb Raider which would most likely be my game of the year. I don't think my gaming tastes could be much further apart from theirs which is one reason why I stopped listening to the podcast and don't much care for their opinions on games.

I love to go fishing, kayaking and bowling. I've been a part of a bowling league the past two years and I try to go kayaking/fishing as often as I can. I know you said you don't go outside but I really love being out on the water, it's so relaxing and gives me a real sense of freedom.

If I were to play it this year it would probably be GOTY for me as well. I still have a good bit of games I want to get through before I start buying newer games but GT6 will likely be the next game I buy. I love both Forza and Gran Turismo but GT has much better gameplay.

I've enjoyed what I've played of the Arcana Heart series, I don't know about Aquapazza yet but I would definitely put Arcana Heart 3 up there with the best 2d fighters. I really liked Tears to Tiara so I'm excited to try this out.

I'd nominate Tomb Raider. The past few by Crystal Dynamics haven't necessarily been stinkers, but this year's reboot is really something special in a series that's been nothing but mediocre-to-okay since the PS1.

Even though I'm a big defender of Underworld, I think I'd agree you. Tomb Raider is probably my favorite game this year.

I actually just started a new game so I could help you out if you still need help. I'm currently Soul Level 11 but I have enough souls to get to probably 17 or 18. I'm not sure of the math but I'd need to be somewhere close to your level.

EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm on PS3.

I can't agree with it being the greatest controller but I liked it and wish MS would've kept it around.

I haven't seen The Last Story mentioned so I'd recommend that, I'm having a lot of fun with it.
