Thanks to Jim for putting this together:
Games Round-Up So, did you get a 3DS? I have to tell you that top screen is a hell of a drug. One look at it's crisp no glasses 3D and you get hooked. I had to lock myself in the bathroom for 2 days just to make sure I didn't run out and pre-order one, because quite frankly I'm not sure I need one, but man do I want one real bad.
My name is Jim Plachy, I am from the website Four Player Co-Op and I come here.......semi regularly to let you know about the video games. Let's go!

Video games are for children
The single player campaign is the worst thing I've played so far this year. I can't speak to the multiplayer.

04:29 PM on 03/27/11
hopefully my gamestop will have a 3DS to test out. I'd like to see if it's as cool as it seems
04:33 PM on 03/27/11
what i really hate about most new games is how they soley focus more on the multiplayers aspect of games rather than single player
06:05 PM on 03/27/11
It's always on my troubled mind.
this :( homefront was horibleeeeeeeeeeeeee. APB beta is keeping my interest on the pc right now tho.

Stoked on Tiger Woods 2012, haven't bought one in years but im feeling the itch.
Also trying to avoid playing a 3DS as i know ill want one.

I feel like purchasing RE4 and RE:CV in HD, but I already have both games, and I should really start saving up my money.
But of course I'm getting the new one without any hesitation.
Also I don't get the hype behind the 3DS, at least not yet, I haven't seen a single game for it that interests me for it (expect for OoT and RE: Mercenaries, but they're not out yet).
