I'll be picking this up about six months from now.  Thinking of starting a blog called "Gamer On A Budget".

Shame on PS3 for not providing backwards compatibility in their new models.

I can't argue with that one.  Touché.

At least the new slim PS3 can bitstream HD audio!

Shame on you for not owning a PS3.  Wink

Seriously though, how can you wag your finger at Sony for developing exclusive content?  Microsoft does it all the time in order to keep their market share high. They throw copious amounts of money at developers to keep games and DLC exclusive to the 360. I say kudos to Sony for the attempt.

The counters alone are reason enough to play this game.  They vary so much, I can't believe that amount of care put into each animation.  The demo is short (and a much smaller filesize on the PS3 apparently), but you'll get a great feel for the combat and stealth aspects of the game.  I'll likely pick this up a little further down the line.

The playable Joker elements for PS3 were exclusively purchased and developed by Sony.  They will never see a 360 release.  (Confirmed by Sony and Microsoft reps at PAX.)

I'm already planning next year's trip.  Once the tickets go on sale, I'm buying my 3-day pass.  I'll start a Flickr account and post all the pics soon.

And so you should be, good sir.

We're Knights of the Round Table,
We dance when e're we're able,
We do routines and chorus scenes
With footwork impeccable.
We dine well here in Camelot,
We eat ham and jam and spam a lot.

Emphasis on SPAM A LOT.

That's why I included the little writeup to go along with it.  The picture on it's own is just bad.  None of the participants are co-operating.

PAX is pure win.  I want to see you there next year.

And if you haven't already, find some video footage of Shank.  It was my favourite game at the show.  Brilliant.

In hindsight, I should have just asked them for a photo.  I didn't ask for fear of losing the photo op altogether, but Tim Schafer is a pretty cool guy (I discovered afterwards), I don't think he would have stood for any sort of "security intervention" had I asked.  However, I decided to be covert and sneak behind them right before their interview continued.  I didn't fix my hair or smile, which makes me look a little insane.  That, combined with the fact that I'm one full stride behind them doesn't help.  In fact, it adds to the hilarity.  It was a matter of 5 seconds from genesis to completion.  Should have taken more time.  Sad

Still, that's Tim Schafer, myself, and Morgan Webb!  And for all that is sacred, please don't publish this photo anywhere else.  Thanks.

Hands down the best experience I've ever had.  Imagine hanging out with 60,000 friends you didn't even know you had.  Full report to follow, with pics.  Including one of myself and Morgan Webb...sort of.  (She had no less than 4 security guards around her at all times.)

I'm off in about 8 hours from now.  I already forsee this being an annual event.  Wish me luck!

Agreed.  The amount of money you'd get for your old DVD's makes it more worthwhile to keep, if only for the features.

The transfer on Robocop Criterion is disgusting, but it being "unrated" makes it worth keeping.

Every purchase can be justified if you really want to.  Smiley

Picked up the entire series of The Preacher.  I've only read the first two volumes, so I'm excited to continue through to the end.
