I'm confident that Blizzard is one of those companies that at least attempts to listen to its user community in order to improve their games. It's a little disheartening to hear all the negative comments come out about Starcraft 2, but I don't think you can argue with Blizzard's willingness to work with the user community.

Not to get this thread TOO derailed, but while Demon's Souls is definitely hard and you will find yourself dying multiple times, it's not that frustrating after you've spent some time with it. Moniker is right--the most you lose is a stockpile of souls, but if you fight your way back to where you died without dying again, you can get those souls back, so you don't really lose anything aside from having to play through the level twice.
And the PVP / Co-Op stuff is handled very nicely, too. I've been invaded from other players multiple times, and really if you die it's just like dying any other time--no further penalty for you. Plus, I believe the formula is that the invading person will always be a lower level than you, so you usually stand a better shot of winning in a straight up fight.
"Slowdown? Owning all the current gen consoles and the handhelds there is no "Slowdown" for me. Steam, PSN, XBLA and retail releases. I have no idea why people say "Slowdown" "
Eh, I've got everything but a Wii, and personally there isn't much that is coming out in the next few months that I'm interested in--which is usually the case about this time every year for a lot of gamers, hence the slowdown time. It's possible that I'm missing out on some releases though...What's coming out over this summer that you're excited about?
Where have you been? Its one of the best games on the PS2."
Well, crap....Looks like I need to track this one down then. Yeah, I don't remember why I didn't check that one out while it was released, but it looks pretty fun.
God Hand...That's the game that has the guy punching the other guy through the mouth on the cover, right? Never did get around to playing that one--I'm guessing that since you're going through another run that the game is pretty good?
" There are so many things I haven't played, completed, or collected everything I want to collect yet that I'll be good for a long, long time. This list would be so long I don't even know where to start. "
Yeah, I'm right there with you--I just picked some of the more recent releases I haven't been able to get to. My actual list of games that I'd like to get to spans hundreds of games on multiple platforms...It's ridiculous the number of games I'd like to be able to get to.
Now that we're mostly in the slow period of new releases, gamers can take the time to asses what games might have gone untouched or forgotten during the flurry of high profile titles releasing week after week. What games do you all find yourself gravitating to in preparation for the upcoming holiday release season?
For myself, I'm looking at concentrating a little more on 3D Dot Game Heroes, Dead Space, IL-2 Sturmovik and Bioshock 2. There are still plenty of others that I'm forgetting about, but those are my main three games I'm going back to. Even if you don't have a specific game, do you find yourself drawn to a specific genre during these off-times? Perhaps you're more into the in-depth RPGs like Persona or Fallout that require more of a commitment. You might be more of a casual player due to summer vacation being a slightly more laid back, easy time. Just interested to see what everyone else is up to out there :D
Well since I like to surf the boards mostly when I'm bored... I thought I'd start a little game.
The rules are simple:
1) You can only post one word.
2) It must be the first word that comes to mind based off the poster above you.
