Try to meet as many people as possible and join a club or two in the first week, especially since you're about a mile off campus. Relationships you start in the first week can carry you pretty far, and then you won't have to worry about it throughout the rest of the year. Also, don't skip classes and try to enjoy your lazy time. I'm only 23 but already I'm looking back at when I was college aged and lazy with a wistful glow in my eye. Post-college life kinda sucks, so live it up while you can.
You know, I never have played any of the early RE games. I might give this a shot, especially without tank controls. Hopefully this'll keep Capcom skirting the abyss a little longer, and maybe they can put out something cool later this generation. They were one of my favorite devs going into the last gen.
This makes me think that Battlefield Hardline might not be total junk, which is cool. And honestly, Evolve is probably gonna take up a lot of my multiplayer time this year anyway. I think it's great news.
As much water as most of his arguments hold, I probably wouldn't own an Xbox One right now if Microsoft hadn't backpedaled on a few issues, the Kinect specifically. There are some incredible-looking games coming up on Xbox One, but there's no way I'm paying a $100 markup for a camera I don't even want. The console ecosystem would be a lot more diverse right now if Microsoft had pushed full steam ahead with their original plan, but in this case that might not necessarily be better. With more Xbox consoles selling now than ever, the competition between Microsoft and Sony just became real.
Far Cry 3 is really up there for me as well, which is odd given that I actually don't like the way Ubisoft structures most of its open world games. Other than that, Saint's Row 3 and Sleeping Dogs were pretty great. Can't wait for far Cry 4 later this year.
Totally agree, Watch_Dogs was an utterly mediocre game and Aiden was a boring reckless dickhead of a protagonist. I don't mind morally grey or skillfully inept protagonists (that's what made the movie Blue Ruin fun, for example) and I even like role-playing jerks in some RPGs, but my big problem with the ending is that it doesn't feel like Aiden gets the end he deserves. There's no growth or poetic justice there. If anything, the rest of his family should die too because he just kept repeating the same mistakes, and then he could go on to become the villain of the inevitable Watch_Dogs 2.
Haven't read through every entry in this thread yet, but I saw A Serbian Film mentioned at least once above and would second that one. Also I Saw the Devil is super disturbing. It's a gory movie, but not to the extent of films like Saw or Hostel. What makes it really troubling is the psychology behind the violence, and the unflinching direction. My friend and I saw it in theaters and left feeling like we had just worked out because our muscles had been tensed for the whole two and a half hours.
