I gave myself a time out from OO after realizing I was letting a small group of posters push my buttons too easily.  Also, I wasn't happy to discover I  actually HAD buttons.  I've made Qt3 and GT my preferred posting sites since then.

...much to their chagrin, I'm sure.

And ours.

I just wanted to pop in here to mention something that's been bugging me since I got the system:

Which MS lamebrain thought it would be cool to buck the trend and insert the disc on the other side of the case?  It irritates me every time I get a game out.  I would just flip all the cover inserts upside down, but then their logo would be upside down.  Although, maybe they deserve that...

Games are still on disks?

Nice write up Duncan.

I honestly cannot think of any game that I would so have to have that it would make me buy a PS4.  Not because I'm anti PS4, but there would have to be something to make me get it.

Last gen it was MGS4 (which was totally worth it)...but since I consider that story over, even if MGS5 was PS4 exclusive, i don't know that'd I'd bite.

This gen, perhaps Last of Us 2...but probably not.

Now if ME4 was PS4 only...that might do it.

I find it odd how some old school GGers only post on OO or only on GT. How did they decide which one to post on? I do both, but I think I'm more active here. Mostly because this site has a lot more console game threads.

Sites have different tenors and...sensitivities.

In Harry Potter, house elves are elves made into servant slaves.  They get set free if you give them clothing, and SPOILER ALERT in the books one of them is freed by being given a sock.  In the above, Legolas the Tolkein elf is given a sock and he reacts as if he is given freedom as with Harry Potter elves.

So in Harry Potter elves are trying to be Fabulous?  Fabulous

With that said I've put in over 137 hours on the PS4 and the game is awesome.  So I know there were issues early on, but it's been solid for months now and it a really good and fun game imo

 Map packs have been amazing and 32v32 is the first 'next gen' thing I've experienced.

LOL, then I guess PC's have been triple next gen.  God I hate this Next Gen term.

Of course I meant consoles.

I just crested 200 hours on XB1 and have loved just about every minute of it...but I didn't get the game and start playing it until after Christmas and there were still some issue then.

But you're right. It has been solid for months.  Map packs have been amazing and 32v32 is the first 'next gen' thing I've experienced.

Ummm...I'm not saying you're wrong.  But the only illustrations of idiocy I see in this thread are from those on the far right side who are afraid they'll have to eat a burrito while unarmed at some point in their life.

...unless you're saying that the Jack in the Box employees who thought they were being robbed when a group of men armed with assault rifles strolled into their restaurant are idiots?

All I know is that if I walk into a restaurant and see a gun, I'm turning around and walking out.

This seems like screaming fire in a crowded theater.  Ammendments only extend so far.

Guys come in en masse with weaponry displayed, how TF do they think people are going to respond?  And then say '2nd ammendment?'  Forget that. They're causing a panic.  At a minimum they should be rung up on disturbing the peace and fined to cover the cost of the police's time.

Over their dead bodies you would!  

That should be Freedom BodiesTM, thank you very much.

And that jack in the box story just illustrates that there are idiots on both sides of the issue...just like every issue.

Went with the Xbone version due to peer pressure.  icon_biggrin

Unfortunately the Gamestop woman gave me a hard time.

GS: "You're going to lose your pre-order bonus which is an extra mission blah blah blah."
YK: "I don't care."
GS: "Are you sure? Because you're going to lose all of it. You're going to lose an HOUR of gameplay."
YK: "Yeah, I really don't care. All my real life friends are going Xbox for this one, so I want to stay on the same platform."
GS: "Well, next time you should really make up your mind before you pick up the game. Our system is automated so I can't give you the bonuses now."
YK: "I don't care about the bonuses!"
GS: "I see you have Destiny pre-ordered for Xbox One. <sarcastically> Are you sure you don't want to change your mind?"
YK: "FUCK YOU SMARTASS. JUST GIVE ME MY GODDAMN GAME."

Ok I didn't say that last part, but I REALLY wanted to.


I think she was insinuating a different kind of bonus she wanted to give you, YK.  unibrow  You were right to be angry at her insinuation that you would last an hour.

Oh bloody hell! Sony fucked up the pre-orders for this game. The game is fully installed on the PS4, but money hasn't been withdrawn from my account, and the license hasn't been activated. It seems everyone who pre-ordered on PSN got hit by this. Apparently they are activating pre-orders in waves right now and estimate to be done within the next few hours, at which point I have to manually restore my licenses, but this sucks. The game should have been unlocked for me over 17 hours ago.

Think I'm going to switch to the Xbone version. While I want it more for single player than multiplayer, the fact remains I have 100+ Xbox friends and 1 PS4 friend. My best buddy in RL is also getting it for the Bone so it just makes sense to go where I have more opportunity.

Do I have you on my PSN list?  I've added everyone on the posted list, but it's not complete.  

Its  "Spinks" on PSN. My older son stole JuniorDan.

Even though I feel its story is often weak and its action isn't that different from other games in the genre, I still enjoyed my time with Watch Dogs. It turns out that the old stuff still works, and the strong-but-standard mission design kept me entertained, most of the time. It's rough around the edges, though, so if you don't settle for anything less than the best, you'll probably be disappointed.

But hey, Watch Dogs 2? That'll probably be pretty cool.

Looks like I'll be waiting.
