I amazingly did not purchase a single game, one because I realize I buy way to many new games on release, and two mainly because of my wrist issues I have to avoid using the computer whenever possible, so for better or for worse console gaming is now my main way of playing games. So I pretty much have already played every one of these games on the consoles.
I do need to check out the Binding Of Issac though, is that the new game from Team Meat Boy?


Yup. You run into a few easter eggs too with posters in Isaac of Super Meat Boy, among other things. :)

Great game! Have you tried getting a gamepad for the PC for your wrist?

Why not just hook up a controller to your PC? I find I do most of my gaming on a controller nowadays. The only exception being online FPS where you need KB+M accuracy or you're at a disadvantage.

Yeah I have a controller for sure, several actually from over the years, but at that point in time why not just sit on my couch and play the games on one of my consoles on my 55" TV?
Obviously the graphics look much better on the PC, and trust me I have hooked my gaming computer up to my TV here and there, but my wife just absolutely hates my gaming computer in our TV room as the tower I have is a beast of a Thermaltake. :laugh:
One of these days I was going to build a smaller more living room appropriate computer, but honestly for now as I said the consoles do pretty much suffice, except for FPS's, which I basically put up with the pain to play them on my computer whenever I can, as I definitely prefer a KB&M for them.
