Not really related to the DLC case, but should I buy this game if I haven't played ANY of the other in the series? Always been curious to try one out and this one sounds really good, but I have no idea how important it is to have played all of the games.

A couple great new releases, including new miss A!
Hush is the new video from miss A and it's pretty excellent. I don't find it as well executed as their Touch video from last year, but it's still gorgeously shot and has pretty Korean ladies...if that's your thing. As for the song itself, I really enjoy listening to it. My one issue is that the "Yeah" samples are a bit repetitive and sound slightly ridiculous. Otherwise, a great late-year addition!
Healing by U Sung Eun is another video that's been on repeat for me a lot lately. It starts out pretty slowly, focusing on the powerful voice, but adds in instrumental stuff that adds to the song as a whole as it goes on. The video doesn't quite suit my taste, but I can't get enough of the singer's voice. Give it a look!
My local Gamestop just called me, saying that the release date for Tearaway had been "removed" and I could go in and pick up my copy. Did they change the date without me knowing, or is something strange going on here?
While I think the best reason to get a Vita will always be P4G (as an admittedly biased fanboy of the series), I'm glad that Tearaway looks so promising, especially since I have it preordered. Now my only worry is which of the three games releasing Friday to play first!
I do think it's a bit weird doing the generation's best when it isn't quite over yet. Odds are, all the biggest games are already done. But what about Dark Souls 2? Persona 5 (when it inevitably comes out on PS3/X360)? Seems poor to have this voting already.
I enjoyed playing it, but when I started to consider putting it on my list, I had no idea why I thought it was anything other than average. The shooting is okay, but the platforming is very Uncharted-esque. None of the puzzle-y stuff from past games in the series is there, except in those stupid-easy mini tombs they added just to satisfy that requirement. Most of the characters are pretty bland and stereotypical, Lara-aside. As @beachthunder said above, all of the run-forward-while-things-explode-around-you and QTE segments got a little tiring. Finally, I found a lot of the inconsistencies of Lara's state of being injured (like that GIANT HOLE IN HER SIDE that gets ignored for a large chunk of the game) to really pull me out of the experience, especially for a game that tries so hard to make her struggles seem real (and otherwise succeeds).
It's a great start to a new series, but I don't know if I ever want to play it again. Trying to start another game of it just disappointed me. Maybe I would have gotten more into it after a few hours, but it kinda bummed me out.
As someone who is annoyed with the ever-increasing focus on things that aren't games in my gaming consoles, I'm not a fan of this thought/trend. However, I understand that it would probably make them a bunch more money, so I wouldn't be surprised if they did something like this.
Never understood how people liked FO3 more than NV. Everything about the sequel was better, from the story to the design of the world (no more horrible underground sections).
C'mon Sleeping Dogs! GTAV may be more impressive, but Sleeping Dogs is just so much more fun. I never want to do everything in open-world games, and Sleeping Dogs kept dragging me back in time and time again.
