    I joined the Companions in Skyrim as an Imperial. The first dungeon they put you through is awesome and epic. I did hear Skyrim had a random quest generator built in, but Im not sure if has been utilized yet. The wild animals can be a pain in the ass sometimes. Packs of wolves, sabretooth tigers, wooly mammoths, cheetah's, Dragons, and several other wild creatures will kill you on the epic roads. You'll find yourself in villages that are suddenly attacked by dragons. The mountains in Skyrim are huge. There are mercenaries out for hire in villages, some you may trust... others not so much...

    I played it a bit, pretty middling, bog-standard military FPS. Whereas Modern Warfare is arguably the pinnacle of bog-standard military FPSs.

    Need a new game to play... I've finished The Witcher 2 and Sonic Generations (surprisingly good) recently.

    Resident Evil 6 looks interesting. Just as long as I don't have to babysit Ashley or anyone else. I'm done with doing escort and protect missions in games.

    Use a router. It's much simpler.

    Just beat Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I really loved it at first despite some simplifications here and there, but towards the end the storyline went from shallow rehash to total shit. I am in serious disbelief in those endings. No resolution, no further information about the assorted characters you interacted with, no attempt to lead into the original Deus Ex. Fucking Nelson Mandela signs even. I mean, what the fuck? This was an ~8/10 game before that and now I'm just irritated. Invisible War was much worse on many fronts, but at least the story was solid and some characters memorable. Next time I play it I'm just going to kill everything and maybe cheat in a lot of grenade launcher ammo (if possible) just because.

    EDIT: Although to be fair I only watched one and a half endings. The first one I watched was the fuck-everyone ending, but I reconciled its uselessness with the fact that it was supposed to be mysterious. Then I tried the augz-r-gud ending and rage-quit halfway through. Maybe the others were better, but I doubt it.

    I agree with this. I liked Invisible War more than Human Revolution, but I won't claim it's a better game. For IW I had low expectations that were exceeded, for HR I had high expectations and was severely underwhelmed, by the story in particular.

    What I don't understand though, is why it's the ending of Human Revolution that bothers everyone so much. What bothers me is that there are so many character and plot arcs that lead nowhere that the game quite frankly feels unfinished. But as for the ending itself? The problem I keep hearing is that you never see the consequences of whatever decision you make. Well, you never did in the original Deus Ex either, and that's the problem with these endings where you decide the fate of the world - it's very difficult to do more than leave the implications of your actions up to interpretation.

    At least IW had the hilarious Omar ending.

    Did you see the scene after the credits, by the way? It does lead into the original Deus Ex. I hate that they hid it at the end of the credits, though.
