Dark Souls is a very challenging game especially for PC, but its also really rewarding when you accomplish basically anything. It will eat up time like crazy because of its difficulty, but again the pay off is pretty sweet.

you play dishonored yet? if not get on that asap

battlefield 3 maybe?

borderlands 2 is fun if you got people to play with

far cry 3 is sounding and looking incredible

I'm seriously looking at BF3, actually. I want a online FPS besides CS to play on a consistent bases. CoD looks like ass.


Haven't played dishonored yet but it looks cool

cod sucks ass

I'm a big battlefield fan, I love bad company 2 and once I get my new card hooked up ill have enough juice for 3 so I'm probably gonna pick it up. let me know if you get it

also if you get borderlands 2 I'm lookin for people to play with

dishonored is fantastic. its not groundbreaking by any means but every mechanic is done really well. great stealth, great combat, great visual style, lots of secret areas and hidden treasures to find, etc

Yeah I've been playing Dishonored...pretty interesting game. Kinda reminds me of a medieval Deus Ex, although the engine is a little more fluid.

X-COM is pretty awesome.

I think that may be coming out next year, not sure. But yeah, definitely a must-buy. I loved the last one.

BF3 is alot of fun WHEN THE GAME WORKS. Origin is a horrible online game manager and i quit playing after 5 months about 2 months ago because it was a roll of the dice whether i could play or not that day.

So I got Diablo iii. Didn't bother getting it up to now. Afraid it might consume me like the I and ii.

So is it any good, honestly?

Not really, to be honest. It's fun for like a week but it definitely doesn't suck you in like the first 2. Lack of char development might be why...

Just got Dead Island on a steam sale a couple of days ago, having a lot of fun with it. Almost like a diablo type loot system but it only has weapons and weapons you can craft. Fun skill levels and special abilities, great environment and quests. It started on an awesome tropical paradise beach and i'm about a quarter of the way through the game and it switched to a scary city on the island, and it's always challenging because you can die any second.

Basically as good as a free roaming zompie first person rpg you'll ever find. Definitely play with a gamepad though it would suck with keyboard and mouse imo
