**The Official Gamers Thread**

I know there are a lot of hardcore and casual gamers around these parts, but I have yet to see a thread for us. Sure, there are threads for specific games (which I like and should not go away), but what about a thread for us to just come and talk about random games? Talk about memories of playing Mario 64 or 007 until wee hours of the morning. Or how about advice on what new game you should spend your money on! Glitches, Cheats (shhh), techniques! Geek talk!

So go ahead, talk nerdy to me.

    Re: **The Official Gamers Thread**

    So I will start!

    Right now we just own an XBOX 360, and I have a pretty nice gaming PC setup. I used to be a PlayStation girl, up until Halo came out. My friends would try and try to get me to switch to the XBOX. But, "No way, that controller is way too big, and I don't like it. I don't care how good Halo may be. Not gonna happen". Finally a friend brought over his XBOX and hooked it into one of my TV's. I gave it a shot. The next day I went out and bought an XBOX. I kept my PlayStation for about a year, then finally traded it in and haven't gone back since.

    One of my favorite memories of the XBOX was staying up all night with 3 of my friends over to our apartment ( I lived with another girl) and we would play Halo split screen while slamming beers and smoking bongs.

    Also, I was so cool back in the day, that I had the GTA map tacked up on the bedroom wall for quick reference.

    So, what are some of your favorite gaming memories?

    YES! I am going to invest in another N64 in the near future, wish I never traded away the system.

    Can't believe they are rebooting it. Shouldn't touch a classic.

    ^ what?!? The game definitely shows it's age if you've played it recently. Controls are awful. I welcome a Goldeneye Reboot. The one they did for Wii got rave reviews.


    Also, it's about time this thread exists.

    Controls are perfectly fine when you grow up with playing it.

    All the other bond games have sucked since. The trailer doesn't even appeal to me much.

    Edit: I guess we will have to see with time...I'll pick it up either way.

    Meh, I haven't played quantum so I can't speak for that. I shouldn't say "sucked" rather, not impressed.

    Re: **The Official Gamers Thread**

    Which upcoming release are you looking forward to the most?

    For me, it will probably be Halo 4 and the anniversary release. I took a step away from Halo and didn't get reach so it has been awhile since I have played any halo game (although, I did just re-buy Halo 3 because my nephew got it with his new xbox)

    Obviously MW3 is up on the list for me, but I feel like I want to take a break from Call of Duty franchise anyway..at least multiplayer. We'll see.

    Also, Assassins Creed. I've loved this franchise, always keeps me busy and the added multiplayer in Brotherhood was a lot of fun.

    Lots of good stuff coming out, What can't you wait to get your hands on?

    I used to be a completely xbox guy for halo purposes and then I bought a ps3 for the blue ray and turned out to really like it way more then the xbox. Better all around.

    I have GOW3, MW3, NHL 12, and NBA 2k12 on pre order right now. I buy way too many games for the time I have to play them though.

    Yes. The story has absolutely entranced me. I love this franchise, and can't wait until AC3. I hope they get it out before 12/21/12, but last I heard this wasn't likely. Damn....that would really suck if it misses the date.

    I am a big Starcraft 2 nerd, and was a Starcraft nerd through most of my teenage years.

    Re: **The Official Gamers Thread**

    Have never gotten into Assassin's Creed. I played the first one, and wad just so turned off by the gameplay/mechanics. I know the ones since then are much much better, but they just don't intrigue me. I've watched friends play them/watched let's plays of them, but eh.

    I'm also really not a Halo guy at all. Story is interesting in as much as it's a true FPS that actually has a story, but I've never gotten into the Halo canon or all of that. If I want space epic, I'll turn to Commander Shepard, not Master Chief. I own Halo 3, ODST, and I have Reach because of the beta testing I do for Microsoft.

    Yeah, be prepared to lose all of your free time . Apparently, the dungeons alone would take 150 hours to complete, and that's without actually questing, just dungeon diving.

    MLB The Show = FIFA > Everything Else. But with The Show being PS3 exclusive, I feel it doesn't get the praise it deserves. Fantastic stuff, one of the only reasons I still have a ps3.

    I still have the first Assassins Creed, which I'm halfway through. I should probably get around to beating it and move on to the others.
