Why? I'm just not interested in it at all. I like that Nintendo is going their own way with games and I'm sure when their signature exclusive titles come out (Metroid, Mario, Zelda) I'll change my tune but for now, it isn't grabbing me.

Right now, I'm intrigued by the PS4 prototype control of which pictures have been released. Only 2 more days until the full console is unveiled at the Sony convention. Woo!
I'm obviously a PS fan boy. :P

Because the WiiU is unique with it's tablet controller. I just bought a computer with a GTX 680 4gb so I don't exactly need a console that doesn't have anything special going on with it.

I understand; If you have a media centre quality gaming machine hooked up to your TV the PS3 is not much chop. I still love mine though... I'm still playing it almost every day. I like PC gaming but Console gaming will always have a place in my heart.
What's the benefit of the tablet control?

Well, the tablet can serve as a screen. That means that you can have one person see things no one else does.

That being said, you need to have friends for that to be of use...

I just got my PS3 this last Christmas, so I'm new to the club, too! So far, my game completions, in order, are:

1. Infamous (Evil)
2. Infamous 2 (Evil)
3. Portal 2 (Single & Co-op)
4. Infamous (Good)
5. Infamous 2 (Good)
6. Uncharted (current)

Next are Uncharted 2, L.A. Noire, and Katamari Forever. Eventually I'll get around to the bigger titles, but does anyone have any recommendations of older games that are hella cheap now? Remember, even if it's old, it's still new to me =D

L.A. Noire is great.

I remember tons of hype surrounding it before launch but didn't follow up with the reviews. I popped it in and the graphics and facial rendering really draw you in. I'm excited for it. It reminds me a little of Heavy Rain, which I CANNOT WAIT to get!

L.A. Noire is great.

As great a concept it is, and as high the production values were for the game I just don't get it. I played through it, hoping the entire time that "this wasn't all it was" and then I got to the end and realized it was.

It's certainly unique and interesting, and moves the video game story telling medium forward, but as far as "the game" aspects go, I just ever really understood how it worked, and whether what I was doing made any difference.

In the end, I played to the end simply because I was hoping it would be a better game and I wanted to get the most out of my purchase, but I never felt particularly fond of the game, and never even considered playing it again once I had finished my first play-through.

I expected something really unique and awesome... what I got was unique and meh.

Sometimes the way you call someone out for lying is a bit obtuse. You have to pick the right clue even if more than one would fit.

I really want to play Heavy Rain. Have you played Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit?

Heavy Rain was cool... Unique and actually really compelling. There is an interesting comparison between L.A. Noire and Heavy Rain in that they offer experiences no other game does... As I said in my previous post LA Noire is forgettable, but Heavy Rain actually made me feel something and want to play it again, even if some of it was completely ridiculous.

Unlike LA Noire, I'd recommend Heavy Rain to any gamer who wants a unique experience. It'd definitely unlike any other game I've played, and for the most part that was a good thing.

What do you think was wrong with it? Lack of explanations or something?

I don't know... but that would be part of it... it just never seemed to matter what I was doing. It was prime story telling, and your 'interaction' with it, seemed to be limited to a button press that would either continue the story, or continue the story anyway... Really the whole experience was so forgettable I don't even remember what my problem with it was. I just didn't dig it.

The game was really well made though. There is no doubting it's quality. But game play is crucial, and if that's mediocre, no amount of graphical fidelity or story telling can really make up for it.

Well, it requires a different mindset to enjoy. You can't go into it thinking that it's going to be something like GTA or another action game. You are a detective. You have to find clues to solve the mystery. If you don't find a critical clue you're going to have a harder time piecing the clues together to catch the bad guy.

To me, it felt like you were really solving something big whenever you found a key clue or asked the right question.

It really depends on what you're looking for I guess.

It's starting to sound like a Phoenix Wright game, where the extent of your gameplay is button presses involving looking at clues and calling people out. Is that accurate? I wouldn't mind that; I have all those games. That's just not really what I was expecting.

I just got my PS3 this last Christmas, so I'm new to the club, too! So far, my game completions, in order, are:

1. Infamous (Evil)
2. Infamous 2 (Evil)
3. Portal 2 (Single & Co-op)
4. Infamous (Good)
5. Infamous 2 (Good)
6. Uncharted (current)

Next are Uncharted 2, L.A. Noire, and Katamari Forever. Eventually I'll get around to the bigger titles, but does anyone have any recommendations of older games that are hella cheap now? Remember, even if it's old, it's still new to me =D

L.A. Noire is great.

As great a concept it is, and as high the production values were for the game I just don't get it. I played through it, hoping the entire time that "this wasn't all it was" and then I got to the end and realized it was.

It's certainly unique and interesting, and moves the video game story telling medium forward, but as far as "the game" aspects go, I just ever really understood how it worked, and whether what I was doing made any difference.

In the end, I played to the end simply because I was hoping it would be a better game and I wanted to get the most out of my purchase, but I never felt particularly fond of the game, and never even considered playing it again once I had finished my first play-through.

I expected something really unique and awesome... what I got was unique and meh.

What do you think was wrong with it? Lack of explanations or something?

I don't know... but that would be part of it... it just never seemed to matter what I was doing. It was prime story telling, and your 'interaction' with it, seemed to be limited to a button press that would either continue the story, or continue the story anyway... Really the whole experience was so forgettable I don't even remember what my problem with it was. I just didn't dig it.

The game was really well made though. There is no doubting it's quality. But game play is crucial, and if that's mediocre, no amount of graphical fidelity or story telling can really make up for it.

Well, it requires a different mindset to enjoy. You can't go into it thinking that it's going to be something like GTA or another action game. You are a detective. You have to find clues to solve the mystery. If you don't find a critical clue you're going to have a harder time piecing the clues together to catch the bad guy.

To me, it felt like you were really solving something big whenever you found a key clue or asked the right question.

It really depends on what you're looking for I guess.

I knew it wasn't GTA, and I was excited not to be playing an action game. I wanted to feel like a detective and search for everything possible and really get the sense you are describing. But I never really felt that way... The consequences of the interrogations didn't seem to be that significant, and when I thought I had really figured something out that I was going to use to question someone it often turned out not to be the case... I don't know, I guess it just wasn't for me. But I love the concept, I hope another developer tries it again and builds on it, but doesn't make it seem so inorganic or un-interactive.

If we're recommending games right now, then everyone should go out and get Spec Ops: The Line and The Walking Dead game.

Some of the greatest video game storytelling I have ever seen in those two games.

Good for you - but there is a high probability of a new PlayStation console being announced Feb. 20th (tomorrow). Perhaps not worth purchasing the current one.

Maikaru-
Batman Arkham City is just amazing (and Arkham Asylum was good too, just not incredible like City was). Should be reasonable affordable now, especially if like me you don't object to pre-owned games.

Someone already mentioned GoW3 which I loved.

Raymond Origins might be your cup of tea. It's a really fun, beautiful looking side scroller with lots of in-house multiplayer potential and heaps and heaps of replayability. I picked it up for 20 bucks I think.

Don't know if you're into the GTA games but I found GTAIV's story to be really compelling. The later parts of the game when you have some of the powerful weapons and fast cars available to you make you feel like a Bruce Willis/Arnie/Jason Stratham-type one-man arse kicking machine. The bank job mission stands out to me as particularly fun and challenging.

I've heard a LOT of good things about Max Payne 3 but I'm yet to pick it up, despite it being a cheap title now.
