[QUOTE] There are like, 3 games that I'm interested in right now and I'm trying to decide if I should bite the bullet on any of them: [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kgogah1INcY]Red Dead Redemption[/URL] [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBEDo4t89Pg&feature=related]Lost Planet 2[/URL] And Nier. I think that Nier has some cool stuff about it but I can't justify getting it if it takes too long to get to those bits. [/QUOTE] I'm waiting for Nier to get cheaper. I know it will. Lost Planet 2 is sloppy, but can be fun if you want to play online. If you're only interested in playing through the campaign in single player DO NOT BUY THE GAME. I had a reasonable amount of fun winning it alone, but it's just...not very well put together. The partner AI is bad, the game does a poor job of explaining what you should do, some things (like the grappling hook) just don't work right. There's a lot to unlock and it unlocks at a reasonable pace, but there's a poor balance to HOW you unlock it. Getting credits in particular is broken, resulting in a strong feeling of "grinding" if you want to get anything done. There's also not nearly enough motivation to play the game on hard (in terms of what awards you get), making playing with friends on tougher challenges much less appealing. Still, I've been enjoying it enough. Even if it doesn't come together quite right, there are a lot of nice things about it and I like playing vs online. I just got Red Dead Redemption today. It's not my type of game. I don't like open world stuff at all and I've never been into GTA. Still, I've been very impressed thus far. The environments are really believable and even if the frame rate goes all over the place and the animation is choppy here and there, the overall visual effect in the game is very strong. The more precise sense of aiming (rather than LP2's "go crazy with a machinegun or blow them away with explosions") may make for a good online vs experience, too. It might be the best game out of the bunch, but it's too early for me to say.
