Be honest and open. If you didnt get chance to check out the multiplayer of a game, say so etc etc. I do written reviews as my voice is not conductive to podcasts or videos, even though I would love to do some so others will be able to speak more specifically to that, but be honest and open and not too jaded.

I thought the ending of Brotherhood was crap, but it was a great game. Look forward to hearing your thoughts...

I have no issue with my 3DS. The battery life is a little annoying at times, but I have no reason to not like it apart from the lack of games. Wont be getting a XL, they haven't added anything super vital to it so am good for now...

I will pay attention to this when it realises I am paying for monthly subscription and give me my due rewards for that. Until that point I don't care. Interesting bit about achievements and rewards though...

Dude I am 30 years old and married, and last year I felt exactly the same way as you do now. To the point I wrote a blog post about hating myself so much and my wife demanded I go to therapy. Let me tell you, therapy sucks, and it wasn't even lay on the couch and talk style, the women just wanted me to read some stuff all the time.

To be fair it helped and I am over it, but I still feel I missed so many things I should have done when I was younger, learning to make games or writing more. I am not good at writing, but I enjoy it and I had a unpaid job at a gaming website for a few months that I really enjoyed, but apparently because I didn't have a degree in english i had no place on the site so they pretty much fired me. Oh well.

Sorry digressing a bit here, the point is your 23, you can make your life what you want it to be. If you cant find the perfect job for you, find a job you at least like and do that, it might not be all you want, but it gets money in to start building your future with your girl. I have been with my wife for 12 years, married for 3 next month, and if your girl is as special as you say she will stick by you no matter what. I know this, because my wife has no reason to stick with me and does, and that makes me love her all the more.

Also, if astronomy only ever becomes a hobby, love it and accept that is what it is, enjoy it for the love of the stars and trust me, you will be happy.

Is it not at the very least interesting to watch series develop and try new things? this is exactly what Blacklist is, a new direction for Splinter Cell. Critic and fan reaction will determine if it was a good decision or not and nothing else, even if the game sells really well.

We have all witnessed shit games do gang busters and great games not sell at all. You cant sue developers for trying to broaden and find a market that works for them so they can get away from the latter of those two options. I personally thought Blacklist looks very cool, it might be have been 'AC'd' but who cares? if it produces a great game what does it matter?

A great game is a great game, but how many shit games litter the path to that game? shit games will always be a thing and in a industry full of creative people, who can get tired, have off days and sometimes make bad decisions that wont change at all ever. Its not dumping down, its finding creative solutions to problems we, as the fans, don't even know exist. and if that solution ends up making a shit game? then so be it. Developers will learn for their mistakes and move on.

Blacklist could come out and sell 2 million units and be hailed as the game of the year by every critic going, but the developers wont be happy with some things, and know that mistakes were made on others. If that means that the mistake was going the Actionization route, then they will figure it out and react accordingly. Don't bitch about this people, its part of the hobby we call games and I for one think it can only lead to good things!
