    I agree, we've been looking forward to the 360 version for some time now. The PC was great, but having everyone crowd around a keyboard was just blech.

    I enjoyed crowding around my brother's computer, drinking coke and smoking cigarettes back in the day, but yeah, I'm ready to sit on my couch to play this game. I'm just curious if you can use the big-button Scene It? controllers or if you need 4 regular controllers.

    That's a good question. The Scene It bundles are super cheap now, so I was thinking of picking one up anyway. They just have the basic buttons and no D-pad though, don't they? I wonder if YDKJ would be impeded that way, like when you have to choose someone to use the Screw on. I think that used the D-pad back on the PlayStation.

    Yep, the Scene It? controllers have the ABXY buttons as well as the "big" button which also has directional functionality. I hope YDKJ allows for those controllers to be used, because they're good quality and user friendly.

    As far as Scene It? goes, if it's cheap now I would recommend picking it up. It's a fun, quick, casual game and if you're as big an achievement whore as everyone says ;), you'll love it, coz it hands out gamerscore like it's going out of style.

    Well, besides Rock Band 3, the last game I played was Rayman Arena for the Gamecube... Anyone heard of it?

    Video demo for You Don't Know Jack here. They mention you use the right trigger to screw your opponent, so I doubt they'll allow the big-button controllers.

    Eternal Sonata
    RPG developed by tri-Crescendo, who co-developed the Baten Kaitos games on the Gamecube. Not the greastest RPG, but still good. A big plus for this game is that the composer is none other than Motoi Sakuraba.

    Fallout 3
    Went into the the Jefferson Memorial to look for dad and I ended up clearing the place of Super Mutants with only the Flamer. Kill it with fire indeed.

    Due to being snowed in for the last three, four days, I broke out the first Super Mario Galaxy and snagged those last thirty or so stars with Luigi. Goddamn Dreadnought purple coins took the most effort. Turns out there were two more I had no idea existed, too.

    Game Dev Story on the iPod has caught my attention lately. It's extremely charming and well-made, and it was only a buck. I would have gladly paid many times that.

    Played Mario Kart Wii last night. I don't know how Nintendo managed to ruin Mario Kart, but they did.

    The main problem is there are so many racers on the track and so many crazy powerful weapons it's hard to focus on racing because you're getting shot at all the time.

    I'm pretty sure they really never changed the limit on players on the track. I've always known it's been 12.

    You must not be that experienced in Mario Kart if you don't expect blue shells, lightning bolts and rubber-band A.I. by now.

    Protip: hold a banana or shell behind you to deflect most incoming attacks.

    Playing Fallout 3 today. I was doing Mothership Zeta, got to the beginning of the final quest and... That freaking little kid will not come through the teleporter. So, I'm stuck in this room with both doors locked and cannot be picked. FFFFFFFUUUUUUU.

    Well, I'm boned. I don't want to delete the DLC, because my other 2 characters have weapons from the DLC.

    I even took my Fat Man and shot the ground, thinking that dying could fix the glitch. But nope.

    Any of the Fallout games you have to have tons of saves from diffrent dates because of that. Elder Scrolls is the same way.

    I last played Rock Band 3. Such a great game. Y'all gotta try it sometime.

    Yeah, but I played that DLC like 2-3 times and I NEVER experienced any glitches like that. Ever. I never experienced any glitches in Oblivion either. I did have some in New Vegas.

    I know I meant to save before I went to the ship, but I forgot and now that play-through is DONE!

    Anybody play Assassins' Creed Brotherhood yet, and have an opinion on it? I absolutely loved the other two, especially the second one, and just wondered if Brotherhood is a significant change from 2.

    started playing new vegas a little while ago. while i never had any glitches in fallout 3, i can already see that i'm going to have some issues with NV. as soon as that happens, im going to switch over to either dragon age or mass effect 2.

    I finally found the last few Jiggies in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, so I'm back to working my way through GTAIV. I may go back and play the two B-K N64 games instead though, GTAIV just isn't holding my interest.

    From what I've heard, if you liked 2, you'll love Brotherhood. Supposedly it has only improved. Not bad for a half-quel.

    Maybe my memory is faulty, but in earlier titles I don't recall getting hit by lightning bolts, blue shells, POW blocks, and every other top-tier weapon in the game every five seconds. I recall actually being able to focus on the course while periodically fending off attacks.

    Brotherhood is fantastic. It's a full-featured game with an immense campaign that improves just about everything about the gameplay. The story isn't quite as good, but that was my only complaint.

    Brotherhood is by far the best game in the series in my opinion.Absolutely fantastic.

    Perhaps you just had an unlucky day. It happens. The 150cc and mirror mode tend to be a little more brutal with the weapons, but not in the degree you're talking about.

    Now, if you REALLY want a cluster**** of bob-ombs and bullet bills, play the game online with all of the cheaters. Last time I played, you couldn't join a race without it being hacked by at least half the other racers.

    Funny, I noticed several glitches so far. A big one is that I can't enter the sewer from the entrance near the Citadel. The game freezes on the loading screen.

    I'm getting a PS3 very soon; besides Uncharted, Little Big Planet, God of War, Killzone, Heavy Rain, Resistance and Infamous are there any other PS3 exclusive games I'm forgetting to check out?

    I just got kicked out of all the casinos in New Vegas after playing numerous games of Blackjack (I had an 8 luck). Once You Don't Know Jack comes out this week, I'll be taking a much-needed break from Fallout.

    Other people have already responded, but I'll chime in too. Brotherhood is great. It's not a huge step forward in terms of gameplay like 2 was from the original, but it's a lot of fun. Multiplayer is very well done, and has a pretty unique scheme. If you loved 2, you'll love Brotherhood.

    The only real glitch I've encountered is people being stuck in places. My game freezes kind of a lot. But I never really experienced anything game-breaking though.
