    Anyone play Grand Slam Tennis 2 on Xbox or PS3?

    What do you think? I played the demo, and while I like the graphics and the movement of the player models, I don't know if I'm so hot about the control scheme...

    I could never get the ball to go where I wanted, slices don't seem to stay low, I could never get the timing down even on easy, and the timing of flat shots didn't seem to make any sense to me...

    I don't know, maybe I need to give the demo a few more tries.

    I want to like it, but I'm not sure it's a new purchase, especially since I have Mass Effect 3 on pre-order and I'm eyeing Ghost Recon soldier next....

    been reading about the DS3, the main reason is to get WIFI. Also I have heard of great game reviews. Anyone on here got one? If so please write back.

    Anyone playing Mass Effect 3 on Xbox? The Co-op is pretty fun. Tried the demo, can't wait for the real deal to arrive.

    Yeah, nice of them to finally give us a release date. Of course, that also means the next SC2 game won't be out this year.

    Do any of the tennis games for Wii have the watch mode? Watch the computer players play each other?

    Sounds like it's time to put some classic ATP matches on loop for your son to watch. ;)

    He mentioned he wanted to have the computer play before the real match on TV. Example have Fed and Roddick play on the computer the day before they play for real???? No games have this "Watch Mode" feature any more?

    I tried to get a copy of Diablo 3 on the release day but it was sold out everywhere. and I prefer a physical copy over digital download.

    Dark Souls = Best game of last/this year by far.

    I'm still playing it and having more fun than any other game in a long time.

    I've only just this week played "Halo: Combat Evolved" for the first time. Never played any Halo prior to now.

    D3 is fun for a while, but the higher difficulties kind of force a particular play style on you. I have a 59 Demon Hunter which I've played only a little these past few weeks.

    We do more than alright, supposing we aren't paired with complete imbeciles.

    Yup! I guess this summer from the videos I've seen.

    The only downside is though, is that they said you pretty much will have to get a PC controller similar to a PS3/360 controller for play. They have it built so that you CAN play with keyboard, but even they said it's not going to be optimal as there was absolutely no changes from console to PC in difficulty.

    I know I'm late to the party, but been playing a bit of Gears 2 online the past few days...mainly Horde. Finally beat Gears 1 on Hardcore, but had to go to Casual to get past RAAM because he was insanely difficult and I didn't have the right weapons when I got there. Haven't even started Gears 2 Campaign, just been playing online for a bit.

    Dark Souls PC version is coming out. But the name seems to suggest it;s going to be really harrrrd - 'Prepare to Die Edition'. Hope it allows you to choose difficulty..lol

    Dark Souls is heavily overrated I think. There is nothing special to that game.

    Here's where the real gaming is at...I was accepted into the Dota 2 beta a while ago, and since then I've been playing a crapload of Dota 2. But to be clear, I'm not a Dota newbie. Before playing Dota 2, I played regular Dota on and off for maybe 6-7 years. If you're half decent, let me know your steam username and I'll add you as a friend. There's also the 2nd International going on right now; lots of competitive games to watch. Fun stuff!

    XCOM Enemy Unkown multiplayer looks good and fun - IMHO I'm hoping my laptop can run it.

    Yes. It looks like it still keeps the essence of the original but with everything updated with current technology.

    My laptop probably can't run it...but my desktop can. :D

    does anyone here have a Nintendo Wii U ? Looks like there will be some great games (Super Mario Bros U) Supposedly it can play Wii games, but a Wii can't play Wii U games? Like I said before I don't like fighting or war games.

    Thanks!

    Stop with the Dark Souls mumbo jumbo. One game of Dota 2 for me is infinitely more fun than that game looks. It's a hack n slash game with practically no variety. They make such a big deal about the penalties for dying...Go look at hardcore Diablo 2. Die once and your character is finished forever. Not to mention the fact that Diablo 2 has a ton more variety with characters and item builds, as well as many more things to do.

    I'm scared of all the LOL players who will come to DOTA 2 and rage at the game because of how different the meta games are.

    I'm scared of idiots who THINK they know what they're talking about when it comes to dota. Just had a bunch in my last game... It's really quite simple. Hero picks DO NOT MATTER at nooby pub level. It's all about the player. Just play smart, and you'll do fine. But noooo, they start bashing me because I'm 1-3-7 Faceless who can't get kills because the rest of the team fed the other team. Most last hits and denies on entire team, least amount of deaths. Problem is we had an 0-9 Destroyer and a Mortred that was just as bad.

    I need to just go back to just playing Kunkka and ghost boat +tidebringer crit everybody. Kunkka has become my absolute favorite hero. Absolutely a ton of fun to play, and pimpslapping entire teams with a good crit is hilarious.

    Ill be ready when they port Torchlight 2 over to consloe. Played the first one quite a bit on 360.

    Bought Dark Souls didnt like it that much. Not much story and I dont have the time anymore to invest to get better at it. If I didnt have a job and spent a bunch of time playing it maybe my opinion wuold be different. Not a game for casual gamers which I am now.

    Its easily the hardest game Ive ever played just starting out. Most games give you a little slack at the start, not Dark Souls.

    I'm guessing you haven't played the classic's then, not that I have either. From what I always hear/read/see, Battletoads and Super Ghosts and Ghouls are the hardest games ever. If you throw in mods' there's Kaizo Mario.

    both games are on my list. downloading the torchlight 2 free demo - it's relatively hefty and it seems their servers are getting hit pretty hard. looks like it's gonna be fun. for $20 it seems like a good bargain.

    the x-com remake looks like a ton of fun and an evolution of the ufo defense game from 20 years ago. i remember the original was also ported over to the ps1. good times.

    I always thought the original Ninja Gaiden for NES was the hardest game for me.

    Its to this day the only game I tried to beat and didnt. I mean I tried and tried with the game but never even got close.

    Then I finally beat it with an emulator where I could save state every two minutes.

    But that was when I was young enough to be able to play nonstop all the time. I simply dont have the time to invest in playing these super hard games to get good at them. In Dark Souls case the story if better could have kept my interst a bit longer. But that game aint my style anymore.
