Cool, thanks for the insight.  I'll pass for now as well.  I'd like a game like Europa for iPad, I only scratched the surface of it on PC.
2  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Peggle 2 Finally coming to PS4 on: August 30, 2014, 01:02:24 AM

This makes me happy.  I've always loved Peggle and have played each one to completion except for this one due to the timed exclusive thing.  More importantly, my daughter loves Peggle even more than me and I'm stoked to have another PS4 game for her to play soon.

Peggle rocks.

My kids are a few years behind yours, so I'll be interested to hear what people have to say.  I think you're already ahead of the game just knowing that you do need to take some precautions this early on.  A not-so-computer-savvy friend of mine had her 5 and 7-year-olds freely using youtube.  "They're just watching videos about this video game they like!"  She had no idea how many of the 'related video' links on the side of the screen were already venturing into inappropriate territory.

Man, I'm interested to hear others thoughts on this too.  Mine are 7 and 4, and I don't want to be a prude, but I'd be hard pressed to let them play an online game at this age.  Maybe this is because all crap i heard playing MW2 and everything else.

So, it really doesn't matter to me, but I'm kind of surprised no one here is playing this.  I'm not either, but for a war game on the ipad it has stellar reviews and a handful of you chaps normally dig war games. 

Just curious to me is all smile

Seeing as my PS4 is not plugged up, nor is my TV, and I'm staying at my in-laws through Sunday (moving trucks will get us moved into the new house on Sunday), I'll be sticking with iPad games tonight, which of course means Hearthstone.  There is a slight chance I'll checkout another ipad game, but that probably wont happen. 

My ps4 is in a box here in the closet in front of me, and the TV in here does have HDMI, but I have no idea where exactly my games are...

Oh well, blessed to have a new house and I can do without TLOU for a few more days.  It really seems my next game needs to be D3...

Have you guys tried the multiplayer now that you've finished the single player?

It's incredibly good, one of the best multiplayer modes that really flows out from the single player experience.

That said, there are some people that are way too good at the game, but it's still a fun mode to try if you have a good team.

I haven't quiet beaten the game but I must be so very close.  I plan on trying out the multiplayer before jumping into the dlc.  Colin at IGN doesn't like MP at all and he adamantly stated that TLOU Mp is the best he has played.

You should get FIFA on ps4 YK.  I doubt any of your Xbone friends will have it, and at least one of your PS4 friends will smile (I need to add you first of course)

Madden is getting better reviews this year.  If I didn't have so much to play already I'd get it.  I'm considering D3 though instead.

I'll be getting Fifa 15 for the PS4 as well, so make that two, and add me to your friends if you haven't already, its scraper on the PSN.

Also, the Infamous DLC comes out this week, so I'll be getting that.

I'll add you as soon as I unpack my ps4.' We packed up the big tv, recover, wii and ps4 last night to move to the new house. 

Looking forward to some soccer with you this fall, and YK.

Congrats on the house!  We are also moving.  We're closing on a house this Thursday and moving in on Sunday.  We've out grown our first home so we've up sized.  I'm also renting out my current home and she'll move in a week from tomorrow.

All the other podcasts is listen to are related to Arsenal.

What ones do you listen to?

I listen to Arsecast and The Tuesday Club & occasionally A Berkamp Wonderland.

There is also a US Arsenal Podcast that I listened to off and on last season.  I can't find it now though and haven't listened to it this year yet.

The only thing wrong with mine is a worn silicone pad, but that is covered under the warranty so I might as well replace it.

I'm pretty sure I wore it out playing Fifa.  I tend to be rough on controllers while playing Fifa.

Lots of birthdays, happy birthday to all of you.

I hope to get in some TLOU and Hearthstone this weekend.  My wife and I are closing a new house in Thursday so I'll definitely be doing lots of packing too.

I preordered the white controller.  Mainly b/c my launch controller is worn out and I want to take advantage of the warranty but don't want to be without a controller.  Plus the white controller does look pretty good.

Yeah, that sequence really sucked. Just figure out a path to run away without getting caught. You'll have a really hard time trying to fight your way out of there.

Wow just got here tonight.  Got eaten 3 times in a row, now I'm playing FIFA to calm down.  Do you have to find range key card to escape?

Should you buy a lot?  I dunno, under $20 it's a steal, and I agree with the sentiment of too many eggs in one basket.  It is however about when and where you buy that basket.  Stop loss orders are your friend .
33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamescom 2014 on: August 14, 2014, 05:46:34 PM
For what it's worth I read every post in this thread, however, I do not think Microsoft has any idea what the hell they're doing. I say this as a Microsoft guy for the past decade. I have only owned Xbox is, and laptops PCs running windows. I find, they lost all credibility when they released Windows 8, which I submit to you is a shitty operating system that I hate that I have to use. That is why, my next computer will not be running windows. That I assure you.   These reasons, coupled with their crappy E3 last year, are the reasons I have lost complete total faith in Microsoft. I have no interest in anything they have to offer, I could care less about what they do. And I think all of this is nothing more than them trying to gain a little bit of momentum in a console race that they are getting smashed.

Absolutely, freaking, 100% smashed. And I really don't give a damn, but it is what it is.

Thanks for all the insight.  All good points made.  I still think the stock is an absolute steal set under $20. 
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why all the hate toward Activision? on: August 11, 2014, 04:31:08 PM
I'm genuinely curious.

I bought a bit of their stock at just over $18 per share and stick by that purchase, but I was unaware of any discontent gamers have toward them.

I get the EA hate etc, and am sure there are valid reasons to dislike ATVI as well, I just want to know what they are!

I bought it because they have more major releases this year than any other year I'm aware of, and the fact that Hearthstone is like crack, and it knew it would be a money press for the the moment  it as released on iPad.  People spent thousands on candy crush for goodness sake...
