    With so many games recently realesed and more on the way, what games are you hoping to get this Holiday season? I'm getting Brutal Legend from my Girlfriend and Uncharted 2 along with Dragon Age: Origins from my parents.

    I sincerly hope I like Brutal Legend as its got quite possibly the most polarising reviews i've read in quite some time yet the whole heavy metal world appeals to me.

    So what games are you gonna get?

    (P.S I know Christmas, Chanukah etc are still a distance off but shopping has to start at some point :D )

    You're British, don't call it the Holiday Season.

    Don't let the Yankee bastards rape our culture anymore than they have already :mad

    every British person I've ever met has a huge disdain for political correctness. I even had one guy introduce himself to me by saying "there are two things you need to know about me. I'm British, and I hate political correctness." please don't disappoint me by being the first British person who I've ever met who actually likes that crap.

    I feel bad now :( 

    I don't like lots of p.c things such as when a company send you a Christmas Card but it says Seasons Greetings instead of Merry Christmas because some may find it offensive. Or when England play in the World Cup any display of St. George's Cross is actually frowned upon. Thats correct England's own government discourages the use of the country's own flag to not offend any none-english members of public. I think any country would dislike the fact they can't be patriotic due to pollitical correctness, that's why most british people dislike it.



    Anyway i'm after what games your getting so I can see if there is anything else there I should get :D

    Did you finally get into Fallout 3? I have a real hard time getting in to it, its just too overwhelming and the gameplay just bothers the fuck out of me. Same with Oblivion.

    Give Fallout 3 a chance, it gets so fucking awesome, just don't think of it as a shooter. It's just Borderlands + Story + more stats that actually affect how you shoot.

    Unfortunately most of my Christmas present are accounted for so I doubt I'll be getting any games.

    But if I find employment between now and Christmas I'll be looking to pick up L4D2, Borderlands, Brutal Legends, Assassins Creed 2 and Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time.
    Probably not all of them but they are all on the list, though the demo of L4D2 left me underwhelmed.

    Anyway, Assassin's Creed 2, Uncharted (both 1 and 2), and The God of War Collection are what I'm looking forward to getting this "Holliday Season" (Christmas)

    Boxing Day here in the UK is generally an awful time to go shopping, especially for games. The queues in stores like GAME are usually well out the door, yet I suppose if your willing to wait you can pick up some decent stuff via the sales.

    I don't think those things traverse international waters (might just apply to points though), but I don't think I'm going to spend a lot of time with it enough to hit up the DLC, but I appreciate the offer :)
