    Have you guys played the Mass Effect 3 demo yet? I played the single player (since that was all that was available) when it first came out and had fun. Today they turned on the multiplayer part of the demo and it is fucking SICK! I've been playing it all day and having stoopid amounts of fun! If you haven't tried it, you really should.

    I played through it yesterday morning. Those are my favorite games and I can't fucking wait for #3. I'm toying with the idea of splurging for kinetic to make use of all the voice stuff they added

    It sounds pretty awesome. I'm not usually one thats into all that motion stuff and voice stuff, but it sounds like they did a really good job putting it together for this game.

    I never played ME1, but I played ME2 and liked it a lot. ME3 looks like it'll be even better.

    I just checked it out here. It looks pretty cool! I'm sure my wife would LOVE it if I started talking with my video games too!

    ME2 was designed to be able to be played without ME1 because ME1 was only made for the xbox, while 2 and 3 are both on the PS3 as well. ME2 is one of my favorite games of all time, but make sure you do the little story review from the 1st one that they have built in or you will miss out on a lot of whats going on.

    Here is a recap on the first two games:

    http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/02/15/mass-effect-in-5-minutes

    They are a LOT like the old Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic games for the original Xbox, but instead of a party based battle system it's a 3rd person shooter. If you are into RPGs at all you should check these out. Hands down one of the best series out there.

    I should warn you, that movie is one giant spoiler, so don't watch it if you are considering picking these up.

    You don't have to tell me! I'm up to level 70-something and that's with me playing a ton of games with my maxed out adept and engineer.

    I went ahead and bought a kinect for ME3 (Gamestop has new ones on sale for a hundred bucks). The ability to use unmapped abilities/weapons without having to use the weapon/ability wheels will be very convenient.

    Curse Microsoft for making a dead attachment for the Xbox a semi-necessary component for a good game.

    I can't afford the Kinect right now unfortunately...the perils of medical school loans. Let me know how that plays though, it sounds like a blast.

    I played through the single player demo with it and it works VERY well. I also LOVE it with Netflix.

    Can you rent the Sesame Street game and let me know how it is? I'm thinking about that for my 3 year old.

    The technology is really cool......I've got one and we've played a few games on it. The key is to make sure you have enough space. It shouldn't be a problem at all for your 3 year old, but for me at 6'3" I don't have the space in our apartment to get entirely on camera, either my head or lower legs are chopped off and that ruins gameplay. The voice activation is pretty cool too.

    I wish the game was as clear as the trailer. I'm thinking about picking this up. Probably will buy it with my taxes along with Kinect, fiance wants the Kinect for the Zumba stuff so I might as well...
