You give him a sad backstory, give him a sword, turn him into a cyborg ninja and lightning attributes and there we go! Just badass lol
Just a heads up for anyone with Xbox, the countdown to New Years sales on XBLA start today. They usually have some pretty sweet bargains up for grabs each year :cool:

My XFX Radeon HD 7970 arrived earlier this week and with it came some free games.

I decided to try Far Cry 3 first and... wow, massive improvement over Far Cry 2 in nearly every way. I found Far Cry 2 to be downright annoying. All of the little niggles in Far Cry 2 that added up to an obnoxious experience were fixed it seems like, plus there's a bunch of new stuff to the third game. I wouldn't exactly call it Skyrim with guns... that's a stupid quote, but it's leaps and bounds better than the second game.
So ZombiU has turned out to be waaaaaaaaay better than some of the early reviews said. It's not perfect by any stretch, but the game does manage to deliver on giving me the sort of survival horror experience I had been so desperately hoping to get out of the last couple Resident Evil games. Like, it's so nice having actual tension back in my zombie games. The GamePad working as your inventory that must be used live (as opposed to using pause and leisurely flipping through your menus that way) really freshens up the gameplay, too. Being afraid to look around in your bug-out bag because it means taking your eyes away from the impending terrors potentially coming from all around adds an incredible new dynamic to what we've come to expect from these sort of games.
Also, enough can't be said in regards to how kickass the choice of setting the game in London was. The atmosphere is top-notch, and the sense of dread just sort of lays over the city like a heavy blanket. In many ways, it's every bit as suffocating (and perfect) as Dead Space's Ishimura.
Been playing Lollipop Chainsaw.
Whoever designed the area of Stage 4 where you have to navigate the gondola up the building must have hate humanity.
