Already buying on PC, and we just have to wait a year before they make a Titanfall 2, you know how Activision does this sort of thing.

Let's just hope this will cap off the meme and GAF lets it die. It's getting a bit old.

I just have stream window small and muted on my other monitor while I work on other stuff now.

It's a bit surprising nothing from Sony was revealed today, heck, very few big announces or reveals at all. No new games from MS, none from Sony. Heck, we were expecting some kind of Uncharted 4 footage since that's how they did it for the last 3 games.

The Twitch stream via Xbone has been kind of terrible. Quality is poor, it keeps doing a weird buffering thing where it replays the last few seconds of what just happened, and a few times it has just stopped playing saying the program was over.

been streaming through Joystiq (who I think are just linking to Spike's stream), and it's been fairly crappy as well.  lots of stuttering and pixelation.  been rewatching the trailers via alternate methods.

I've been streaming it thru the SpikeTV website. Stream has been fine for me this past hour and half.

spike.com/vgx was stable and had good quality. Only twice has it had minor stutters.

edit: beaten

Anyway, I can see why companies wouldn't put their best forward if this wasn't being televised. Not that being televised on Spike meant much.

maybe it's Joystiq then.  although I have to say the stuttering may be improving the crap they got on now.

Because they couldn't afford anyone else.

As for ACM, they need to keep it overall positive since it is a marketing piece first and foremost. Still, if they could, they would definitely give ACM or Infected Survivor Stories that top (dis)honor.

Kinda sad that they didn't show the Strider titan doing a special move to get out of the situation.

Overall, will not be surprised if the show goes away entirely next year. No one is debuting anything interesting, which is why people watched.

Then again, it could just be one of those times due to the new console launch. Everyone too busy working on their new stuff, which is taking longer due to the generation switch.

VGAs were a pretty big affair last year. I guess for as big a business it is, video games don't make for great ratings (mostly because they seem to target the show at 15 year olds).

They're going to do a 1-hour quick-clips show on Monday for the broader audience, this was kind of the long winded version for actual gamers.  I read this article on Polygon about why they did the reset on the VGAs, which was somewhat interesting (and thinly veiled advertising, I guess).

That's 3 for 3 where Sony has dropped the ball in terms of interesting footage or reveals for their games. We know they have stuff in the works, but where is it?

Was it just too soon from the last updates for things like inFamous?

Anyway, Camilla Luddington using her American accent, must be practicing for another role but that was strange hearing it. Also makes her way hotter demonstrating her acting skills.



That's her real accent. She has to put on the full British accent, which is why it's pretty uneven in Tomb Raider.

yes, don't you watch Grey's Anatomy like my wife forces me to do?

And now turning this into the Camilla Luddington thread. Apparently she lived equal time in the UK and US, so had to learn both at some point, but yes her American accent is probably more natural. Must be why her british moaning while getting beat up in TR were so annoying.

To be honest, nothing left to say about VGX other than that it was mostly a disaster, better than the stage show with paid seat fillers, but still having lost even more. Namely, they lost most of the decent reveals they used to have which drew people.

When Nintendo reveals nothing but a new super easy mode character for DK, you know it's bad.

I think companies will just wait for their own events or the big events like E3 now.

This was the first year I bothered tuning in for this show, probably because they streamed it or made it clear that you could stream it. Who the hell watches scheduled TV anymore? So, good on them for that at least. The show truly was terrible but I don't want it to go away, I just want it to evolve. That's what was supposed to have happened this year but they goofed it up.

It's been YEARS since I've watched Joel McHale on The Soup but I recall him having some pep. Is he always this laid back and lethargic? He seemed completely uninterested in being on the show, there was zero energy. Even Geoff seemed off, not that that I watch him enough to know whether or not he's usually better than this.

Geoff made a comment during the show that lots of people were streaming it and it was trending on Twitter, so there's obviously an audience. The people who are bankrolling this need to fire some staff and bring in new blood to change the direction of this thing. I don't necessarily need exclusive reveals but more new footage of upcoming games and more segments with devs would be great.

Angry Joe's piece on the show is a good watch, I think he nails it on the head and makes good suggestions on repairing the show:
