Skyrim is going to be much better than Oblivion, and I found Oblivion to be great fun. The graphics in Skyrim will be awesome, go watch the trailer for it. Honestly, the story looks like it has even more potential than Oblivion as well because the player isn't just a hero - they are the last of their kind.
Skyrim will most likely win a bunch of GOTY awards, along with some other games like Uncharted 3, Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3.. etc. As already said, the game probably won't have online options because these games aren't made for that.
This is the worst news ever. Just what gamers need, Activision to ruin more game franchises. If this happens it's the end of my favorite series as we know it - GTA. We'll see GTA's every year, along with BioShock 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, BioShock the sisters, sister of the waterworld.
I think I want to puke after reading that this might happen.
Mass Effect games are RPG-Shooters. They are also fairly linear games, because they are more about telling a story. You get full customization and everything you'd expect from an RPG with one glaring detail omitted - no inventory in Mass Effect 2.
Honestly, if you like Oblivion and games like that, then you should like Mass Effect. If you've played KOTOR, even games like Gears of War, then you will probably like Mass Effect.
I've played all of the Mass Effect games, and while I recommend playing the first yourself, you don't have to if you get the PS3 version. The PS3 version is the superior version of the game, because you get ALL DLC (up until the point of it's release) included, and a nice interactive story that allows you to pick all the important things that happened in Mass Effect 1.
Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, LA Noire, and Battlefield 3.
Skyrim cause it's the Elder Scrolls.
Mass Effect 3 cause the first 2 were awesome, and this is the closing act. Probably will get the CE if possible.
L.A. Noire cause it's Rockstar, so it's gonna be awesome
Finally, Battlefield 3 cause it looks ridiculously good.
L.A. Noire looks like it'll be the game I want most. Possibly Infamous 2, LOTR War in the North, and Max Payne 3 if it comes out when it's supposed to.
Driver: San Francisco and Duke Nukem will be the games I'll peg as disappointments.
Shipping time depends on a few things:
- Location in regards to the shipping centers (Pittsburgh, Florida, Texas, California, and I think one other in the midwest)
- Games in your Q and the availability. Make sure to have a bunch of games in your Q, and I usually aim to have mediums in my top 3-5
I live in New York, and get games from Pittsburgh normally. It usually takes about 2 business days to get there/to me, so about 4 days total mailing time. Gamefly usually sends a new game a day or two after they get the one I sent back. Sometimes they are slower, and might require contacting support.
If you cancel, your account is closed immediately. If you have any games out, you have 7 days for gamefly to receive them, or you will be billed full price.
PS3. I have both and don't even use my 360 anymore. PS3 has a great library of games, and has better exclusives. Move is better than Kinect. PS3 plays Blu-Ray and upscales DVDs, 360 doesn't. The PS3 is a better all-round machine, and just does more.
