Started with Fallout 3 on 360 was my first taste of the franchise followed by New Vegas. Transitioned to PC gaming at the end of the previous console gen and tried Fallout 1 and it really wasn't my cup of tea; got out of the opening cave and to the first town and gave up. Should probably give it a fairer go some time in the future but honestly just think it's not for me.

This looks extremely promising and I'm cautiously optimistic. I kind of hope things like interrupting the news crew will then require you to obtain the camera's media to get a Silent Assassin rating.

Have no issue with Sega doing this, as it at least appears that significant effort is going into ensuring that the pre-order DLC is of a decent quality and as Patrick identifies, it will likely be put up for sale afterwards, thus fulfilling it's role as an incentive to pre-order but not making this DLC exclusive to those who do. I would rather something of actual quality is put up as an incentive, rather than a host of different skin/weapon packs.

The reality is that every consumer has a choice, do you really have to have the DLC on day one? Go ahead and pre-order, or you can exercise restraint and wait until the quality of said game and DLC is more of a known quantity before making your purchasing decision.

I might have a few biscuits if I've got a cup of tea but that's as far as it goes. If I've eaten snack food I'd feel the need to wash my hands before playing.

I've only played the demo and for me it just didn't feel like I remember Tony Hawk games feeling. Add to that a lack of levels and Activision's plan to add a few more at 400MSP a pop and I couldn't justify purchasing it over dusting off my old PS2 and playing the original versions of 1 & 2.

I can only speak to them up to 2010 as I stopped playing the new versions then and have reverted to playing PES5; to put it simply FIFA feels more arcadey and PES is more of a sim, whether this is still true I don't know. Also FIFA has all the licences (which is important to some) meaning you get all the proper team names, badges and kits which isn't the case in Pro Evo.

@pyromagnestir: Just re-counted and I do indeed have 5. I'm a ways off getting though them! Still have 12 hours left of the first book.

Game of Thrones (Although technically I'm not reading, I downloaded the audiobooks for each of the four books in the series)

Viva Piñata is a franchise I'd definitely recommend. Probably also be worth getting him one of the Lego games (Which one depending on whether your son is into any of the properties they've done).
