Can't decide what to play next...

With the recent flood of quality titles, I'm really not sure which game to play next. I'm wrapping up Dead Space and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, and ready to tackle a new game, but damn if I know which one to play. I have on my shelf still untouched, Tales of Vespira, Infinite Undiscovery, Fable 2 LE, Little Big Planet(the forbidin copy), Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise(don't ask) and Fallout 3, and don't get me started on the ones I wan't to complete like Armored Core: For Answer, GRID, and fuck it, you really don't want to know the games I had for a year that I still need to play.

I'm leaning towards LPB mainly cause it looks like something I can go through in a week before Gears 2 and Resistance 2 comes out, cause I can always play the RPGs when I get sick and can't go no where, like when I got sick last...5 years ago, damn my immune system!!!

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 character choices...

Episode 2
A Bit of Clarification...

After listening to the playback of the latest episode, I realized that my rant in describing my feelings about MVC2 fans and their character choosing habits, while funny, wasn’t completely fleshed out. Let me go into a little more detail on this. I am very aware of character tiers in fighting games. I recognize that the very characters I was chastising people for choosing happen to be among the most effective characters in the game. My point was that although this is true, the other characters in the game are meant to be played as well. After all, not everyone is playing MVC2 for competitive purposes all the time. Sho and I have some friends that will only choose a certain bundle of characters (in some cases maybe just 1 or 2 out of the entire roster) and cling to them as if their life depends on it. If that’s your cup of tea, then fine, but pigeon holing yourself when it comes to character selection will only lesson the experience you have with the game. Remember the excitement you’d get when pulling off a move for the first time against an unsuspecting opponent? Well, in a game like MVC2, you have a chance to have that experience well over 50 times. Look, I understand that hardcore fans of the game are going to choose the characters that are the most efficient and effective for them in a tournament. Fine. I just won’t watch the footage. But for the rest of the time, lets enjoy all the aspects of the game to the fullest extent.

List of Top Tier characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (as listed on Shoryuken.com)

1. Magneto
2. Storm
3. Sentinel
4. Cable

So, In short, if these are the only characters you pick…you still suck.

See you in the next Level.
