Beyond: Two Souls is a psychological thriller from the makers of the award-winning game Heavy Rain.

  1. Picking up Beyond Two Souls this week. I played the demo and I was kind of engrossed in the story. Should be a fun play through. I'd like to pick up the Capcom Essentials, but I already own 50% of what's in it. Disgaea is a good pickup, though. I'd go for that if I have the extra mulah.

    1. Yeah I am getting Beyond Two Souls just on account of Gamestop making them all collector's editions helps as well. Capcom Essentials the only thing I don't own in one shape or form are two of the games. I don't know much of Disgaea just what i read on it. Any other cash i pick up is all going towards the new systems and launch titles i have on pre-order.
