Comment Re:My dreams just came true! (Score 1) 112

You are my new best friend.

As much as I love Psychonauts, after playing through Brutal Legend twice, I would pass up a Psychonauts sequel in favor of a BL2. The game got a lot of criticism for certain gameplay elements, but those didn't bother me (I thought the combat system was pretty cool), and the world just left me wanting more. Too bad so many people hated it.

Comment Re:keyboard and mouse (Score 1) 406

I would love to be able to use a DualShock/mouse hybrid control scheme for Skyrim. It might be a little awkward, but I was considering the Move Navigation controller for this (the one that's basically a reduced DualShock meant to be held in one hand). Not sure how well it would work out, but I really miss a mouse while trying to aim my bow/magic (but really only during those times).

There are peripherals (Eagle Eye, or something) that allow using your mouse/keyboard with PS3 games that don't normally support them, but I'm not sure how well it would work (especially since I want a hybrid), so I'm not willing to shell out $50 (plus whatever the navigation controller costs) to figure it out. But there are options out there for those who would want to do this.

As to why I don't just play on the PC in the first place, it's just personal preference. I recognize the PC is superior in some ways, but I prefer the PS3 for most of my gaming.

Have I Lost My Gaming Mojo? 418

danabnormal writes "Increasingly I'm being frustrated in my attempts to find a game I want to play. In an effort to catch up, I've been using my bog standard Dell laptop to dig out treasures I have missed, such as American McGee's Alice, Grim Fandango and Syberia. I don't often get the time to play games, so I like to have the opportunity to dip in and out of a title without feeling like I'm losing something by not playing it for periods of time. But when I find a title I like, I make the time. Heavy Rain is the last game that gripped me, that truly engaged me and made me want to complete it in a single sitting. I'm tired of the GTA formulas, bored of CoDs and don't have the reaction time to think on my feet for AOE III. Is it about time I tossed in the controller and resigned myself to the fact that the games I want only come out once in a blue moon? Or have I just not found that one great title that will open me up to a brand new genre? Lords of Ultima is going OK at the moment — is there anything of that ilk I've missed? What are your thoughts? Do you stick to a particular genre? Are you finding it harder, as you get more mature, to find something you want to play?"

Blizzard Rolls Out Real ID Privacy Options 145

tacarat writes "The last time Blizzard mentioned their new Real ID system, there was a strong backlash from users over privacy issues. Blizzard reconsidered their plans to require real names for forums, and little has been heard about it since. Now, they've announced new privacy settings, allowing users to limit how their name gets shared or to disable the system entirely. Quoting: 'These options provide Real ID users with additional tools for customizing the service based on their preferences, enabling the ability to opt in or out of the Real ID "Friends of Friends" and "Add Facebook Friends" features or to turn off Real ID altogether.'"
