I saw a few videos for Gunstringer. It looks goofy but might be worth a play down the road.
It's all about next week--Gears of War 3. And I am telling you all right now, I will be accepting of people on here who want to go through the campaign with me on that Thursday or that weekend. MisterEMatt is again my tag.

Got the trial for Radiant Silvergun. Haven't tried yet.

Is this the first year you can set the controls for NHL 94?
Nope, they had that for at least two years now. Maybe longer.
I am impressed with the little updates they did. You now have to battle for position if you wanna stand in front of the net. And most important-the goalie can shove.
You get specific tasks from the coach (put pressure on their goalie the next 10 minutes, simple but fun stuff like that) and as usual everything looks just a bit smoother than the year before.
You can now play an entire season or even career in the junior leagues. AND there's legends. Though that part is a bit underwhelming (there's about a handful and I'm not sure Jeremy Roenick deserves to be in there in the initial game) it's probably going to be one of those things where they keep expanding it every year. Just wait until you can play with the 80s Oilers vs the 60/70 Canadians.
I'm purposely gonna hold off on getting GoW3 so I can get some extra playing time with NHL and some other games I'm still working on..don't wanna get sucked into GoW right away.
Given the hype surrounding this game (for, what... three years now?) - and the fact that I've really been in the mood for some kind of strategy/sim type game lately, I bit the proverbial bullet and picked this up. Thus far, it is a lot of fun.
