Quote from: Crusis on December 04, 2014, 09:33:24 PM

I'm not sure how they'd get software updated on the device. There's no way to plug it into a USB port of any kind. Maybe it can just download them. Since Echo, like SIRI, is cloud based I suspect all of the updates will happen online. I did notice that Echo was slightly sharper the second day. My son and I did a side by side comparison between Echo and Siri and Echo had a LONG way to go. I'll think about putting together a short video and popping it up on youtube.

I'd assume it was like their Kindle devices.  The last two generations have been able to update OTA.  Handled automatically and very slick too as it tells you it updated via a 'book' on your home screen.

This is all apart of Warner Bros.  shared universe world trying to capitalize on the Marvel-verse.  So not really crossing streams per se

It is when the upcoming Suicide Squad movie is being called Sinister Six.

Well, there's no denying it, I'm one of ubisoft's target audience for this kind of game.  I just opened up the north (great mission) and have almost played 30 hours.  I still have a few bits to do in the southern half, but I think I'll be skipping them until I need the xp.

Picked up The Crew. I've got a platinum EB Games membership, so I've got 7 days to return it (and apply it to my son's XB1) if I don't like it.
That might not be enough time if there are fundamental issues with the online connectivity.

I still want to be able to decouple my digital games and "resell" them. Here's to hoping this becomes available in the near future.

Gosh, I agree, but believe we will never see it.

I bought Mordor, and like it,but find its not really my cup of tea, wish I had bought the physical copy so I could trade it for Dragon Age.
This may happen someday, if you are in the EU.  There's been talks of this directed at Steam games for some time now.  State-side, I doubt it will ever gain any ground with industry or politicians.

Ha.  They've already announced that AC:  "Not Unity, we promise" is set for next year and taking place in 19th century London.  Yes, this means we get to investigate Jack the Ripper. 

The comatose patient is still on life support, and they are already planning the next victim.

If you can seriously look at the wealth of gameplay and world to explore created for this game and say that Ubisoft has decided to cut corners and save money, you are insane. 

Nope, not insane. I've merely played the Grand Theft Auto games, where such corners aren't cut. Those games have actual content that still satisfies the "checklist gaming itch" you're talking about, content that is both fun and satisfying at the same time. Ubisoft doesn't give a rat's ass about that. They just plop a random, useless collectible somewhere and call it a day.

They absolutely do not.

If you took out every collectible, you would still have a shit ton of content there.

And I actually miss the collectible stuff from GTA. 

But they're two different styles of open world games.  There's room for both.
Those things are still very much a part of GTA V.  There are 3 unique types of collectibles that unlock throughout the game and each have their own reward.

As a huge fan of open-world games, I find it hard not to want to clear of the map as well, but there better be something important at the end as a reason to bother searching them out, or I lost interest.

Looks like the Black Friday sales helped MS outsell all the rival consoles at least in the US.  I'm not surprised as MS has gone out of it's way to move these systems.   

Really good to have healthy competition in the console market
Agreed.  We all benefit from having at least two console market.

Two tablets, a 2nd gen kindle hd 9in and a Asus transformer.  I'll use the kindle for reading books, but my wife uses it almost exclusively.  The TF is older and should really be restored to factory as it lags quite a bit with newer games.

I actually spend more time browsing on a chromebook due to the speed, low weight and full keyboard.
I've recently added a Kindle Paper white for dedicated reading (huge improvement over LCD) and a Kindle 7 HD to replace/give away the first gen Kindle Fire and shelve the TF.  

The 7HD will become my own with the wife getting the 9HD.  Not as big into gaming on it but I'll use it for companion apps and guides while gaming.

Given the usual tradition of piling all of the big releases into November, you might think there wasn't anything to look forward to in December.  In spite of that, we have a stealthy release of Telltale's GoT series, a new release on PS+ and a delayed release of another highly promoted next-gen racer.  Is there anything you fancy getting this week or are you going to prove the publishers' predictions of reduced sales?

I have now cleared out the lower eastern half of the Hinterlands map and realized that there was a great big piece of the map on the west side, just waiting to be explored.  This game is bigger than I thought. 

In case anyone wants it, I have a spare code for the Flames of the Inquisition weapons on PS4.  They are more entry level weapons, but the dagger is still pretty useful at level 6.
