    Haha, I totally forgot about selling Paul my free copy of The Witcher 2. What can I say? I was young and needed the money.

      It was a great deal in any case. Fucking amazing piece of artwork at a deeply discounted rate? SOLD.

    I’d just like to say thanks to DJ for recommending the Asuras Wrath demo. Finally got around to playing it and it’s bloody insane. I’ll definitely be on the lookout when it hits sub 20. I also just played the FFXIII-2 demo and that first boss battle felt straight out of Asuras Wrath with the quick time elements o_O

    As for stuff I like this current gen. First time I unpacked my PS3 and used the wireless controller I was blown away how I could play from the couch without the need for a cord and an extension cord. Then he HD graphics blew me away.

    Also, I know online competitive was around for a while before but the real emergence of coop online play has been revolutionary. It’s great being able to play games now with other friends that have coop campaigns.

    And another thing ….. you guys ever thought about doing a live show. I think I might pay money for that.

       oh word.. you’re right.. wireless controllers is pretty what’s up. Sure the cube had it first but it became standard in this gen and I should probably change my answer to echo this sentiment.

      don’t really care about HD graphics myself but that’s a different horse to bet on.

    Ikaruga.. that game is SOO SOo hard. I’ve never made it past Ch 3.

    My fav thing about this generation is .. honestly the community conversation between us and the makers.. There are things I like in gaming but that’s one of the few that wasn’t around earlier. Hydrophobia for one example took HUGE advantage of this.

    The best thing about current gen. consoles is wireless controllers standard and HD graphics.

    Best thing about gaming this generation is the HD graphics.

    The amount of game play in games is amazing.  You can totally get into the world of the games.  Gotta love the massive storage of Blu Ray discs!

    Love the return on VGCT, I think Leon’s voice needs some more “arnold” to it. So who is going to voice Nemesis? 

    I think the digital distribution and games being on sale constantly are the best things of this generation.
