Did anyone try borderlands 2? I am currently in my second playthrough . I am wasting a lot of time in games these days, something which i am guilty for. However, trying to figure out what other games to try.
P.S: Eagerly waiting for GTA V on pc. It seems to be on the roadmap for a 2014 release and that too by april/may as many are suggesting.

Completed Borderlands 2 long back when it was launched. We did a 3-player co-op with voice chat using Skype. It was so much fun! We completed the title in under 10 days with very few side missions left untouched because some of them felt repetitive and boring - mostly fetch quests; go there, beat that bunch of monsters and mini-boss(es), pick up the items, deliver it to the client and get the reward types. But leveling up was fun and we get access to some insanely awesome arsenal that blows the crap out of the bosses.

I suggest you find a co-op player and attempt it. It would be much more fun than playing it solo. Especially the Skype chat - it never gets boring. Never bothered with a second playthrough since I have a huge backlog of titles piled up.

Btw, just a headsup! Three major titles are due for release later this month - Batman: Arkham Origins, BF4 and Assassin's Creed IV.

Awesome. I am not a fan of the batman series but i think BF4 and AC IV will cut it for me. Good enough in my opinion. So, i will have to plan my financing now money being the eternal problem .

Have you played the previous Batman titles i.e. Arkham Asylum and Arkham City? If not, you should give it a shot IMO. Those are by far the best superhero based titles ever released. Received widespread acclaim and success.

Right now, I am playing Beyond: Two Souls for the PS3. Excellent title but haven't found much time to delve more into it due to the hectic schedules.

My PS3 favorites are
1.Hawx2
2.Call of Duty:Black ops
3.NFS Hot Pursuit
4.Just Dance 4

Hawx2 is good if you are a Top Gun fan. If there's a better combat flight game please let me know. Also Strike fighters on Android platform is a good one on your cell phone.

It never ceases to amaze me the sheer number of players at any given point of time all over the world to play NFS and COD online!

Had bought Just Dance 4 thinking it would be good for exercising but had never played it until recently when my little cousins who found the disc proved it could bring the house down with everyone playing it and ROFL!

Special thanks to Super Mario Bros on the small nameless console for hours of fun gaming when i was a little kid!!

Hi Folks,

I am new to the world of gaming. Just bought a Mac Mini - i3, 4gb, Intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB. Wanted to buy a couple of games from Disney for kids. The DVD pack said that the machine should have a graphic card - ATI Radeon X1600 or NVDIA GeForce 7300GT. My machine does not have these. Will the game work on my machine?

Also does one neccessarily need to have the exact graphic card or is there a concept of equivalent card in this field? How good is the graphic card I have? Can I play games on my Mac without adding any thing? How do I check which games I can buy?

Please guide. Thanks in advance!

Dushyant

Currently playing Grand Theft Auto 4. Yeah I know its old but I am a late entrant into the world of console gaming and I am just playing the classic titles for now. So far GTA 4 experience is good.

I had long pause to pc gaming. I had become casual android gamer when I bought my Note last year. But from last month, mobile gaming is no longer looking interesting to me. So back to PC. I am playing "Saints Row The Third" now a days. Action/Comedy sandbox style game.

I have also developed a new interest now a days after the release of GTA V. Which is, watching Game walk-through videos on youtube (especially the youtube channel theRadBrad).

NFS - Porsche Unleashed (Porsche 2000 in some countries) is one of the best racing games I've played till date. The Career mode was very challenging, and lots of fun. I especially fondly remember the one-on-one challenge where you needed to beat Porsche's chief test driver to take over his spot, in a car & track of his choice. The bugger chooses the monster '73 911 Carrera RS, around a twisty mountain trail track. For the first few attempts, I could barely manage to keep the car pointed right, forget keep up with him. Such fun, I still have the disc lying around somewhere. I gave up once the new wave of NFS games came in (roam around town completing games, blah). Gets very boring, and most events are barely challenging at all. I tried the first couple of games in the franchise, then gave up for good.

I've been a big Pro Evolution Soccer fan over the years. The last one I have is PES 2011. I finished 2 runs in season mode, but got frustrated since there's no way to update rosters or transfer players in season mode.

I still carry my PSP while travelling. Racing games on mobiles either suck or are huge resource hogs (like RR3).
