I just picked up Metro 2033 from Steam for $10. It's interesting so far. I have a 9800 GTX, hoping to upgrade soon, and I played it on High settings and it looks really good. I was only getting 20-30 fps, but it didn't bother me. I played it for a few hours. Can't wait to compare the game going from a 9800 GTX to a 570.
I also pre-ordered L.A. Noire. I like the detective angle and it looks like Rockstar has some novel ideas on implementing that concept into a video game. Between this and The Witcher 2 it's going to be a busy May.
I'm going to upgrade my graphics card to a MSI 570 GTX P/E in preparation for The Witcher 2, Battlefield 3, and Skyrim. If needed, I'll do SLI in the fall and add another at that time. But, we'll see if it's needed.
I just pre-ordered the collector's edition of The Witcher 2. I never buy collector's edition that are over $100, but I love The Witcher so much that I wanted to support the company...and get some cool goodies as well.
I hadn't played Dragon Age in almost a year, so I figured I'd finish it. Hit the level cap and decided to buy the Awakening DLC; unfortunately, it doesn't increase your cap in the main game. D'OH! Oh well, it gives me more to play while I wait for the super, mega, bloated edition of Dragon Age 2 to come out later this year or next.
I've decided, for my RPG fix, I will wait for the "complete" edition to come out for any RPG so I can snag all the DLC and filler packs for one low price. Cheap gaming. Love it!
Speaking of timeless classic, the Mega Man games fit the bill. My five year old loves Mega Man. He knows all the characters and has played 3, 9, and 10. He is pretty close to getting past all the bad guys from 9 and making it to Dr. Wily. He keeps asking for more, but I told him he has to complete one of the three he has before he gets a new one. He'll be excited to see Mega Man Universe when it comes out.
