I've heard some truly horrible voice acting on new games, too though - seems like it's worse on Japanese titles that have been translated and dubbed. They tend to cross out of the hilariously bad zone and back into the plain old bad, where I just want to put on the original voice acting with English subtitles.
In recent years I've been finding SquareEnix titles particularly lackluster in the VA and Story departments. Another common source of poor voice acting is RPG titles from obscure European developers. For instance, my most recent favorite Obscure European Title, Divinity 2, fell prey to widely varying VA quality. Disciples 3 also has widely varying VA quality.

Aside from blockbuster titles, like those from Bioware, I've been paying increasing attention to games which don't even HAVE voice acting, or are voiced by the same Indie team that developed the rest of the game.

Does anyone here use an Android tablet for gaming? (Or.an iPad if that's what you've got -- some titles are available on both platforms.)

Any recommendations besides the inevitable Angry Birds?

Taking a trip in time and playing some Secret of Mana (Yes I have it, no I'm not selling it). This and earthbound were $110 at gameswap. That's cheap compared to the thousands people want for it.

Started playing Two Worlds 2. It has some minor control issues that I've learned to accept from European RPGs, the animation is at times quite odd, and the voice acting is both great and horrible at the same time, but the gameplay is solid, the mechanics are interesting, and it's incredibly addictive so far. The graphics are also very good, though I notice some occasional bits of fuzzy rendering. I might tweak the AA up a bit more and see what that does to it, since my card is having no trouble with it at current levels.

Picked up Child of Eden and the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus collection today. As someone who still picks up and plays Rez with alarming frequency, Child of Eden is my crack. It's somewhat hard to play, though, as I am synaesthetic, which is a conceit of the game (it's attempting to play up that angle) so the deeper I get into it, the greater the light and music show becomes, the more it becomes some awesome sort of total and complete chaos by fucking with my already fucked with brain.

In other words, I'm loving it. Also, I'm pretty sure playing it is giving me a taste of what it would be like to do acid.

If anyone's been trying to get into PSN but get a "server is down for maintenance" page, go here http://www.qriocity.com/us/en/ and you can alter your account. I made one and downloaded all of the Crash Bandicoot games. Currently, I'm trying to 100% Crash team racing.

I love the Mass Effect series... March seems really far away at the moment. ME3 sounds like it's going to be incredible.

I've been playing Ar tonelico Qoga. It's pretty nifty, if you're into JRPGs. Also they seem to have done a lot better on the translation than At2.

I started playing EVE back in December '05, but it lost me when my long-time alliance fissured back in... 2009. I tried to find somewhere else to be happy, but no dice. I keep my accounts active and training, in case some day I have the proper time to dedicate to playing it again, and the luck of finding a corp/alliance I'm happy with.

I think this is one of my favorites if all time. I make sure I play through it once a year. I'm not gonna lie, I'm lagging behind this year. It's almost mid October and I haven't even touched it.

Enjoy ma'am.

Currently slogging my way through Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories. Right at about 110 hours logged, but still very much enjoying the game. Dood!

I played that for a little while, too. Then it, too, got old. I'm considering playing under the Freedom thing, but I didn't log enough paid time to have full access to the invention system, which means no invented enhancements. Which SUCKS.
