I take it all back, for 6 WWE AllStars on the 3DS is actually a neat little game

Now for the rollercoaster of adrenaline that is Professor Layton!

NERD ALERT!

After playing Pikmin 3 I am again reminded of why I like gaming in the first place. Great gameplay mechanics, fun strategy/puzzles, fun theme/world, it's cute, it's charming, it draws you in, it makes you feel good while you play it - it simply forces you to have a great time. I'll be coming back to this one again and again for sure.

However, now I am out of games to play until SR4 on the 20th, and even then that's on PC so still no console games. The Wonderful 101 comes out on the 15th of September, so that will be great, but nothing until then.

The Humble Bundle is awesome if anyone hasn't seen it yet. I donated $5 and got Dead Space, Dead Space 3, Burnout Paradise, Mirror's Edge, Medal of Honor, The Sims 3 and Battlefield 3. Pretty awesome!

Again, it all depends on content, does it not? If you were to watch the Transformers Trilogy, then it is fair to classify that as 'mindlessly watching television'. Whereas if you were to watch The Three Colours Trilogy, you are stimulating your brain with a movie that is designed to make you question symbolism, narrative technique and genre tropes. This makes it very educational and atkin to studying a film degree.

Reading a book accomplishes even more, even if the content does not seem thought provoking. One, you are increasing your vocabulary, two you are being forced to use your imagination, and three you are gaining more information about the world, whether it is useful or not.

What can you learn from Tekken? Had to spam capoeira techniques until your opponent's health goes down? I don't care if the geeks get paid to spam at tournaments, all it makes do is remind me why the world outside Germany economy is so bad.

FPS and fighting games require more skill then action-adventure games.

No my friend. You telling me that all of those FPS games on X Box and those Call Of Duty games require skill????? Running around and gunning people with sub machine guns doesn't take skill. I played Call Of Duty at my friend's house online and I HATED it. Whoever sees the enemy first will win, that's it, simple.

Also, Last OF Us is a SURVIVAL HORROR with action elements. Do your research please.

To be good at those games it takes a high level of skill. Tests eye hand coordination, a certain degree of strategy and it is highly dependent on your reflexes.

If you mash buttons, you suck pretty hardcore. To play at a competitive level takes way WAY more skill than it does to beat a game like the Last of Us. It's pretty much common knowledge. If you think otherwise, it's alright, it just means you don't really know what you are talking about.

Like I said it isn't spamming random buttons. That is why people that just spam will never actually get good at the game.

And the Last of Us was good, but it was FAR from difficult. The parts where you had to figure out how to advance to the next area were easy as the solutions were fairly obvious.
