    I was just going on his thoughts. He wasn't impressed with GROW2 (as far as progressions from the first, and compared to titles like Far Cry 2). It will make most fans happy (Hell, if Halo 3 could, then I'm more than positive GROW2 will more than satisfy). But it didn't sound like it brought the sort of innovation Far Cry 2 was bringing to the table (I count GROW as a shooter, as does he).

    He had issues with Resistance 2 last time we chatted as well...

    if you have a ps3 and haven't played uncharted yet, you're doing yourself a disservice.

    Far Cry 2 comes October 21st. It's a sandbox shooter, meaning you basically play the game how you want to. Pick what faction you want to do missions for. There's what's called dynamic AI being applied, which means enemy AI is very aggressive and is not scripted (i.e. it will change depending on the situation). Source tells me the A.I. is incredible, probably the best he's seen for a shooter. The environment is also huge and totally inter-actable (I believe it's about 50km, scaled).

    Real-time clock, strategic use of day/night missions, no medkits (players have to perform first aid/bullet extraction on their own), and totally destructible environment are going to make this a very very special game.

    EDIT: I mis-read your post and my excitement for FC2 was unleashed. :ha:. If you're looking for a game now, Uncharted you could probably buy cheap, and it's a really fun platforming/adventure/shooter game. Burnout Paradise is also a very solid game that just became available on PSN for a reduced price (29.99 I believe?). You might be able to find it for even cheaper.

    I beat Uncharted - - Drakes Fortune. It was cool. In retrospect you know what game was awesome? BioShock.

    Also, I have all three platforms. I will check out FC2. What kind of game is Burnout Paradise.

    Thanks for the posts guys. Between the websites talked about and also the games y'all are mentioning, I have enough to watch out for :))

    Fable 2 is high on my list, as well as fallout 3.

    Can't believe I still haven't played Far Cry. Gotta find a 360 copy somewhere.

    I played the demo of Bioshock on PSN. I am definitely getting it.

    People (fanboys) have been *****ing about the graphics but they act like its been down graded to old school Nintendo.

    Fable 2 has a lot to improve on from the first. The first was decent but it missed out a lot on potential.
