    Does the PS3 really have that shitty of a game library?

    ^ Yeah it sounds like an interesting game but just saying that nothing you say/do will make the game justice because its THAT good doesn't convince me.

    As far as games go, we should always be skeptical, especially if reviews are THIS good. Several people from another forum are playing through it and all echo this experience, so I think I'll give it a shot. It sounds worth it even if it's only half as good as people say.

    I find it kind of sad how games/consoles have to have so much technology/graphics etc just to appeal to humans now. Remember when the Atari and other consoles of it's kind came out? These things are going to be so real one day that real life will be heading towards the way of the ancient Atari. Real life just won't appeal to anyone anymore. Oh well.

    I got this game in the mail yesterday, and have layed it only for about 20 minutes. My impression so far, it IS pretty badass, and I can see what they're saying about the learning curve, because it's tough. So far though, it is pretty good. I'll update after I have some true impressions(more than the introduction).

    Depends if you're a 360 fan boy or not.

    They don't have to. I myself am a sucker for graphics, I bought Crysis simply because it looked awesome, and yet I still enjoy games like Mario, PacMan and Tetris. Simply put better graphics = better immersion, on games that are trying to achieve as much realism as possible to draw the player in good graphics are a must. Sure most of the time graphics won't make the game more fun, but they will make it more enjoyable. Then again there's usually some little graphics thing that's cool as hell, though namely those usually involve physics.

    Dragon Age: Origins is going to be pretty good too I think.

    The Last Guardian may be the only reason I someday buy a PS3.

    I'd consider buying one for White Knight Chronicles, but Dragon Age is coming to x360 too.

    The review in my OP is a bit exaggerated, but, it is a great game. The difficulty is something that I haven't seen in agame in quite some time. Even while sober, it is quite difficult. Just as I feel I'm getting the hang of it, I come across an enemy who obliterates me with one hit. It is frustrating when this happens(you WILL die a lot), because you start at the beginning of the level and have to work your way back to your boodstain to get your souls back The souls being currency. Basically, if you have a PS3, the game is fun and rewarding. Definitely worth checking out.
