this is me not caring about Halo Reach, or anything Halo related....
because i'd pretty much rather play with a Tonka truck

also, Kinect is WAAAAYYYY overpriced, but i hope that developers really utilize the system and take advantage of the innovative ways it can be used for gameplay and control. i see a lot of potential, but until that potential is reality, MS isnt getting my 150 bucks

World of Warcraft movie could potentially be amazing with the right people.

Also, I hate retailer exclusive bundles.

Stoked for Third Strike, new characters being added to SSF4 and looking forward to SF X Tekken or whatever since it will prove once and for all that Street Fighter characters shit on Tekken characters.

I love how the PS3 assault rifle controller video had to tell us that the gun still makes the machine gun noises even if it's not plugged in. THANK GOD!
