I feel MS fell into the same routine Nintendo did by leaning only on 2 or 3 franchises so much (Gears, Halo, Forza for MS and Mario, Zelda for nintendo). Of course Nintendo has been in games much longer so it took a bit longer for them to realize where the money was and abandon things like Metroid, Donkey Kong, Kirby, etc.

Scalebound looked bad, and I guess they saw how Re-core did and decided it was for the best.

I'm not sure what xbox players want from MS in terms of games. Do they want them to stay the course and give more Forza, Gears, Halo? Do they want MS to bring back the oldies like Fable, Viva Pinata, PGR? Or do they want MS to dump everything and just give them new IPs like they did back at the launch of the xbox and xbox 360?

I don't know what the future holds. But I hope the scorpio bring something new to the table. I want more Gears and Forza but I want some variety too....

Halo 1 and Halo 3 were great campaigns. Halo 3 was especially fun in co-op.

Brothers in Arms RTH30 is amazing. Great story, good squad and suppression tactics. I don't think any FPS has done anything similar in a long time.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 (and 1) was a whole lot of fun. But the multiplayer took the spotlight there.

Crysis and Far Cry 3 were similar in some ways but both unique and fun in their own ways.

Medal of Honor Allied assault was a great PC shooter back in the day. Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4 and Modern Warfare 2 were also fun and over-the-top military shooters.

I've never played them but those Metroid gamecube games are always talked about in such hush tones.

Bulletstorm is completely underrated in my opinion.

Rainbow Six Vegas (1&2) were great tactical FPSs. Story was eh but otherwise they were lots of fun and very challenging.

Of course the Bioshock games were great (yeah even Bioshock 2) but a game called Singularity was also just as good but flew under the radar completely.

Wolfenstein The New Order came out like 3 years ago. Got a lot of praise on GB and elsewhere.

Metro 2033 and Last light, NOLF, Riddick...

There are a lot of great shooter campaigns. I've only named a fraction of what's out there. Are these better than DOOM? Maybe not, but that's completely subjective. It's their opinion but I don't agree that DOOM is the best shooter campaign in 15 years.

I liked AC 1 because I played it when it was fresh. I don't know if you would enjoy it unless you are really into the crusades and that historical era. Gameplay is slow and can get repetitive.

AC II is amazing. You will miss the grappling hook of syndicate but the setting, the characters, the story and combat are really fantastic.

AC Brotherhood is a great folowup. All the goodness of ACII but with the added brotherhood mechanic. Maybe playing ACII and Brotherhood would make you tired of the franchise...

AC Revelations is good if you want to see Ezio wrap up his story. There is some boring tower defense but the setting is different so it can be fun (constantinople is the new city)

AC III is the most drawn out of them all. It takes waaay to long to get going and by the time it does it's too late to care. There are "hunting" mechanics that I never engaged because the world itself is so boring.

AC4 is really fun and simple. If you like the boating part you will love it. If you hate the boating you're in for a good 20 hours of boredom. I liked the characters and the boating so I loved it. Explored 100% of the world (gold map baby!)

AC Unity's problems are far beyond the glitches. It's just a boring story with boring characters and boring missions. Literally nothing happens after the 20 hours you spend playing it. (I also got 100% and opened every chest in this game because I kept looking for the fun)

AC Syndicate is amazing. The grappling hook, the protagonists, the beautiful city...everything is to notch in this game.

@raven_sword Oh okay, I didn't know you planned on cruising around town picking up chicks in your pussy magnet. You're right, not many hondas or toyotas will get you any action. However I still stand by my 'no american cars' statement.

My advice is to avoid american cars, unless you're looking for a truck.

If looks are important to you, take a quick look at the new corollas. The sports one looks pretty neat both on the outside and the inside. The LE, CE, etc models also look nice. Your mechanic is right, avoid the Dodges and Fords. Too many people in my life buy new fords and issues pop up so quickly. I just came back from Japan, and 95% of the cars were toyotas, so they must be doing something right, but maybe someone living in Japan can enlighten me and tell me what is actually up with that. When I was car shopping I looked at a Mazda 6 and it was really nice, but the 3 seemed like a better option at the time. The Scion looked nice too.

Get a car that is known to be reliable, comfortable and fuel efficient. Read all the reviews you can and visit forums where people more knowledgeable than bombers can help you out. And test drive!!! Do so much test driving, a good salesman will want you to drive as much as you can, a bad salesman will try to cut the test drive short.

That is my advice, because you asked for it Mr Sword. I personally don't get the "looks" thing. Most women only care that your car is clean when you pick them up, and very few people actually care about how baller your car looks. We can't all drive Panameras can we?

Buying a car is not easy, it takes a lot of research to buy the right one because they are such a big investment of your hard earned money.

Jeff seems to always rock an awesome pair of sneakers on streams but I've rarely ever heard him talk about them besides a few times with Ryan (unless I totally missed it somewhere).

Also, sneaker thread?

Anyone here ever been to Japan? Please tell me this is how women there interact...

It's made by an American dude, so I assume it's how American women interact.

So what you're saying is that this man has zero idea how women interact...got it!

All the episodes are great. It's hard to choose a favorite. The Jersey Shore episode really stands out for me.

creepy Vita games like Monster Monpiece get you on the FBI watchlist, and voting with your vallet doesn't work. Eight year olds and younger are bought GTA5 and worse by their parents.)

What you're not okay with jerking your Vita off in public? This offends the vita sexualists (don't google this) out there

Damn that video....

Doesn't help that I might have a hand fetish.
