PS3 - engotten!

This Christmas I am now the owner of a shiny new PS3. Well, matte, but still new!

So for those interested in that sorta thing, my username handle type thang is StormyCoyote, since Stormfeather was taken (booo!)

Also, any suggestions as to games that I Just Can't Miss on the system? Anything else that I should know about it?

(Oh and... happy holidays of various flavors, everyone!)

Well, the first game I'd buy if I got a PS3 would be Brütal Legend, although I'm not sure you'd be a big fan. Granted, I know you like metal, and the game takes place in an alternate world that's the distillation of almost every heavy metal album cover in existence. It's a Tim Schafer game, so it's got a quirky sense of humor. It's got voiceovers by Jack Black (main character), Tim Curry, Lemmy, and Ozzy, plus a soundtrack guaranteed to repeatedly apply boot to gluteas.

From what I've been hearing though, you have to go into the game knowing what you're in for, there's alot of disappointed people thinking it's just a hack-n-slasher like God of War. That's a good part of it of course, but it sort of evolves into a real-time strategy game at some point, and kind of leaps around genres a bit.

Still, if you want great story, famous voices, and enough metal to build a Death Star, it's a good pick. I've been crying out to the gods of metal for the lack of a PC version, which they've stated will probably never happen. I've been severely tempted to get a console just for this game...

Not really sure if it's my thing, partly because I was always more into the hard rock/glam than the heavy heavy metal (although liking some of the harder stuff too), partly because while I like the music, I'm not sure if a game based on it appeals to me. Ya know?

But maybe some point, after I've already gotten past the game glut from picking up the system and some games all at once.
