I'm just saying
That's true. I prefer playing Fable on the 360, but that's only because I have one.
It'd make a lot more sense to get the PC version of it, if you didn't already own an Xbox.

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

Well, if your PC is so bad you wouldn't even be able to play it on Low, then I think buying a 360 would be less expensive. But still, if that's one of the few semi-exclusive games he'd want, I'd rather get a PC upgrade for any future PC games that he would possible like

Well it depends on WHY his PC is bad. A shiny new graphics card for 100 bucks will do wonders He doesn't neccessarily NEED a new computer.

That is also true, but if he bought it pre-built there's most likely some kind of blocker that makes him unable to upgrade his PC

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

So I'm on the 10-day trial for WoW. I really like it and am wondering if it's worth the money to buy an actual membership for it?

I'll be back in a few hours to check for responses, thanks!

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

WoW is a good time-waster. Is it worth the money? Well, if you like the trail AT ALL, then yes. But if you do not, then no. You probably know of how addictive it is and so, so play with caution, but I would buy it if I were you.

I don't play WoW anymore, but it was a good game

WoW IS addicting, but I can control myself, PC gaming most of the time hurts my wrist.

Well, since you're obviously a PC-gamer, then I don't see why not. Buy it. (You may want to wait for some other people's opinions though, but it's up to you)

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

World of Warcraft, great game, but I recommend playing it during the summer or when classes are a little loose. Come test time and its either go questing or study, sometimes you'll be sucked into questing and in no time its 2 AM and you have no idea how ocean currents effect anything...

God I did horrible on that test.

But I got a nice little horsey for my Undead Mage

Gran Turismo 5 has significantly less depth and quality than Forza Motorsport 3. It's not even close.

Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger. My top two favorite video games of all time.

Final Fantasy XIII if you're into the series.

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

Gonna play Dragon Age on PC, and not really into Final Fantasy.

Demon's Souls looks okay, but apparently it's really difficult?

It's difficult. I haven't played the game myself, but my friends tell me the game is so difficult that it can make you cry.
Just what they say though.

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

Might give it a miss for a while if it's supposed to be that difficult. I kind of suck at games. ;D

Has anyone played White Knight Chronicles?

Oh, and I already know about Assasin's Creed and it looks awesome.

Assasins creed, bayonetta, dead rising... and thats all i've got.

Re: General Gaming Recommendations - review, rate, critique.

Just gonna make some recommendations on games I've recently played; if anyone's into the sort of bleak, creepy atmosphere type games, play STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl. It's a great game, although a little old it still looks fantastic, even more so with the STALKER Complete Mod.

Also, for anyone who likes horror, play Amnesia: The Dark Descent. I haven't finished the game yet, but I'm fairly far into it and it's one of the few horror games that are actually scary. Well...maybe not scary scary, but it always has your heart rate going. Point is, it's well worth the $20 on Steam.
