Gamefly.com maybe?

That sucks you don't have like a Blockbuster's or a Hastings or something.

The little video store used to have them but when the new people bought it they sold off all the games and just do movies now. They totally make up for it by having the best ice cream and milkshakes in town :P

Unfortunately Gamefly doesn't serve Canada :/ I'm sure there's another one, I'll just have to go looking for it.

Well humph. You're attached to the USA, why not help ya'll out? Are they scared of the northern accents, perhaps?

Hopefully there's a Canadian version of Gamefly or something up there. :s

Maybe they're afraid of the polar bears :P

I found Game Access so I'll be looking into it. There's quite a few I want to try!

I've started playing Dragon Age: Origins yesterday, I love it! It's the only single player aside from Sims that doesn't bore me. :)

I usually play Dragon Age origins.
I like special RPGs, so that is exactly my kind of game.
When I've got free time and I'm not dedicating it to sims I play Bioshock, Borderlands and other games like that.
My boyfriend is always in the haunt of new PC games, so I tend to try all the games he gets xD

I think I must be the only person around that hasn't played DA...

I got DA last night as well, and I absolutely love it. So umm, that's also probably what I'll be doing for sometime now, instead of Sims stuff :D at least for a while!

I'm all about RPGs. I tend to play a lot of them, including Dragon Age of course, but also Mass Effect if you want recent stuff (and Persona 3 and 4 on the PS2, for example). But I've been playing these games since the beginning of the 90s so I've played a lot of the old classics too (Planescape Torment, yeah!).

Other than that, I enjoy some simulation and strategy games (city builders and the like, to an extent).

I just found out that they are releasing Uncharted 3. You have no idea how excited this makes me. Hence I've started to replay the series XD

I'm late getting to the second one, but I'm almost done. I'll need to replay it though... talk about treasure fail.

I recently got into Assassin's Creed. I played the first one briefly on PC but the controls were complicated and at the time my computer sucked ass, so I decided to try it on console. SO MUCH BETTER.

lol indeed.

I keep dying in Battlefield and get frustrated. I literally have to step away from it and come back because I get so angry :P

Sounds like me  last night trying to play Uncharted 2 in crushing. Basically I wanted to try the last chapter hoping it would give me the trophy for finishing the game in that, but it didn't. The guy at the end doesn't seem any harder in crushing than the other difficulties tbh. But, here's something I noticed about it. You have to hit the guy 20 times with the resin... there's a short cut scene at every 5th hit... so, just FYI when you go back to it ;)

I actually played Battlefield a little last night and I didn't do too bad! Well, until I had to shoot the helicopters down. I couldn't seem to hit them >.>
