    I dunno what's wrong with me, I just don't seem to be all that trilled with this game. I watched some of the combat go on and it just turned me off. I just saw two guys standing there wacking swords at one another. I compare that to KOTOR and you got guys kicking, swing, parrying and it just looked exciting, not so much on this. It's a stupid reason too, especially when I remeber how much I enjoyed Baulders Gate 2 (missed out on #1).

    You don't have to. Just the fact that you love 6 is good enough. That game is and will always be amazing. Though I think it might hurt your bum for me to say this, but 12 has something in common with 6 that hasn't been present since FF6. The ability to make any of the characters your main and raise them as any class you want (the way you did with Espers in 6). FF7-11 pretty much forced roles and Tidus was always your main. I made Locke my main in FF6 and Ashe my main in FF12. It was nice to go back to that ability to choose who you wanted to take point.

    There's more to it than sword clanging.
    I have seen shield bashing and the like.

    Tidus is so dreamy!

    Hell no, dude! hahaha. Nah, I use the Jaguar in jokes the way Smasher and I use Barbie's Horse Adventure for games.... only that one isn't a Joke. Smasher really loves that game.

    There are apparently four ways to play this game.

    I'm really surprised they used the term "Kingdom Hearts" style for the style that most closely sounds like KOTOR.

    Hey Smash, have you played with the Character Creator? I wish we could port those creations to our consoles. My new character is PIMP.

    Yes, on the web site. I was looking for the ME2 requirements too. If the game has the same issues on the 360 as the first one did, I might consider getting it on my PC. Seeing how well games have been running on it, I might venture into Mass Effect on the computer instead.

    When you do, take the "Expression" slider of the Portrait section all the way to the Right, lol.

    There's 3 in-game items you can unlock in Origins by playing Journey (getting the 5 achievements, doing the 3 surveys, and completing a quest).

    You can also earn an in-game item for Origins by making a character with the creator and uploading it to bioware's social network site.
