    I've been told that it's exactly the same as the original, but with better graphics, so I'll pass on it until it gets significantly cheaper.

    I bought the Collector's Edition. I dunno, I love it. One of the best CE's I've bought, and I buy a bunch of them. It has this 2 gig flash drive that looks like some sort of futuristic dog tag, which is probably my favorite extra of the CE. The usb connector for the dog tag shoots in and out when you press this button. Every product Blizzard produces is such quality.

    I love everything Blizzard makes.

    I'll probably poo poo myself when Diablo III finally comes out.

    Bought SC2 on Friday. It's like putting on an old pair of shoes, and I'm enjoying the heck out of it. Something about hearing Jim Raynor's voice again really brought everything back.

    Cool game -- though, given how similar it is to the original, there's no way in hell I'm going online to play.

    Front Office Manager-the thing that really killed the game for me was putting GM points into Hitting Coach and Pitching Coach. I would see seasons where I would win 130 and 140 games if I maxed out those 2 GM categories. The scouting part of the game was really cool though, and I hope MLB The Show tries to copy that part of FOM.

    Madden 11-Never have figured out how to play the PS3 version of Madden. I doubt I'll shell out $60 for Madden again, unless they come up with a franchise mode as good as Head Coach.

    I'm also a real big fan of Dragon Age; I just wish they would be coming out with more character customization for Dragon Age 2.

    My original PS3 died of the YLOD, so I went and bought a Slim. I just wish you could play PS2 games on it.

    Anybody got any tips for baserunning in MLBtheShow...I play online and I can hold my own with the bat, but I just haven't got the basepaths down. Especially when there are multiple guys on base...I end up advancing all of them instead of a specific player and make my self look like an idiot on a regular basis. Its not something you can really practice I guess...does L1 and R1 advance/retreat all runners? I just can't follow the manual on this one. Thanks!

    Speaking of Diablo III - I forked over a $20 on Torchlight this weekend, and spent an ungodly amount of time on it this week.

    Amazing game for any of the PC crowd and anyone jonesing for a Diablo fix.

    Based on what I know about WoW, I'm guessing not (unless they have RZ access in-game while you grind).

    I'm a big fan of MLB The Show (and a die hard gamer, play everything pretty much, mostly 360) and love the road to the show mode. I'm thinking about buying an authentic jersey of my created player named Chubby McGhee (number 99). He's a 5 time MVP, 4 time triple crown winner and a 5 time gold glove recipient. Your thoughts? Lame or game?


    edit: I also play WoW, Greymane server, Landfilltwo is my main.

    I played WoW for the first few years after it came out and, yeah, it chews through free time like nobody's business. Ended up not being able to play end-game with raids b/c I didn't have the time to grind for pots and study all the strats. So now I can just spend all that energy bugging people here
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Those of you with "2011" in the Duke Nukem Forver Release Date Pool can now collect your winnings:

    http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/111/1118240p1.html
    The great vaporware saga of Duke Nukem looks to be coming to a close. At PAX this morning, 2K and Gearbox turned gamers loose on the first stage of Duke Nukem Forever. Let me repeat that for the non-believers: Duke Nukem Forever is real and it is an actual playable game. I half-expect to now to see Sasquatch walking down Pike Street in downtown Seattle.

    Anyone getting the PS3 Move? I am considering it.

I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton

    How's Madden 2011? Thinking of pulling the trigger but it gets pretty bad reviews on Amazon?
