It looks like Nintendo saved the craziest new game reveal for last - a 3DS strategy game called Code Name STEAM.

Quote
Code Name S.T.E.A.M. takes place in London during the Age of Steam, with a cartoony, steampunk art style. The turn-based strategy game ó with a variety of other unique features, like third-person shooter elements...President Abraham Lincoln started Code Name S.T.E.A.M. to defend and fight off enemies from outer space.

The game is from Intelligent Systems, developers of Advance Wars, Fire Emblem, and Paper Mario, so this could be great.

Sony revealed at E3 that the PS3 and PS4 versions of the Ultimate Evil Edition will have a Nephalem Rift filled with monsters from The Last of Us and a set of armor based on Shadow of The Colossus.

In addition to Rise of The Tomb Raider, a sequel to Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light was also announced.  The game is called Lara Croft & The Temple of Osiris and is supposed to be coming to PC/XBOne/PS4 soon.

They also unveiled the regular and collector's editions for the game, and the regular edition looks better than the collector's editions of other games.  Also, a digital version of the Witcher board game is coming to PC this summer.

Very tempted to finally buy Stick of Truth, but holding out hope of a next gen announcement at E3.

Hopefully, we'll know about it before this sale is over.

Do these last a week?

PSN sales usually last a week, but this is a Flash sale and is only good through Friday at noon Pacific time.

This is a good EddieA post.  A great EddieA post would point out which games should not be missed at those prices.  Help a brother out.  Go for greatness.

So much pressure 

I'd say the must-haves, for the price, are Kingdoms of Amalur : Reckoning, ME Trilogy, and Ni No Kuni.  Of the others, Final Fantasy X/X-2 and the two Tales games are great, but either will get cheaper or have been cheaper in the past.  Dragon Age : Origins is a great deal, but it looks and plays better on PC, where you can often get the Ultimate Edition for about the same price.  There isn't really a bad game in the bunch, though, so it's just a matter of how much you're willing to pay and/or wait for better deals.

Max and Halo are available now for XBOne and Dark Souls is available for 360.  Also, as with PS+, you can "buy" the games through the XBox marketplace on PC and add them to your account, even if you don't own an XBOne.

172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (06/2) on: June 02, 2014, 07:45:10 AM
Day One - Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate (from PS+), maybe Tomodachi Life (seems like great wacky fun, but I worry about longevity)
Eventually - Murdered: Soul Suspect, Worms Battlegrounds

Just a reminder, donít forget to register Mario Kart 8 on Club Nintendo!  You get to pick from a number of really great free games if you do.  I highly recommend Pikmin 3 if you donít already own it.

You also get 70-80 points for registering MK8 (depending on whether you did the "intend-to-buy" survey) plus another 60 for registering the free game (at least it was 60 for New Super Mario Bros. U) and another 10 points for each in the eventual post-play survey.  That gives you 160 points, which is almost enough to get another free game at Club Nintendo.

Playing the 50cc tracks, where I'm often in the lead, can be frustrating, too, since the prize boxes almost always deliver coin powerups, which are useless when the coin cap is 10.

They might not do you any good in the race, but the extra coins do help you unlock vehicle parts.

Also, I love the Highlight Reel feature.  I hardly ever use the replay feature in racing games, but with MK8, I always watch the highlight reel.  It's also lead to some awesome gifs and the Luigi Death Stare  saywhat

In a bit of bad timing for Steam (and anyone who paid $17.50 for it) Humble Bundle has RPG Maker VX Ace is their latest weekly bundle for as little as $1.
177  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel + Netflix = Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessic Jones, Defenders on: May 28, 2014, 11:33:41 AM
Daredevil has been cast.
178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (05/26) on: May 26, 2014, 09:35:12 AM
Day One - Mario Kart 8 (plus New Super Mario Bros. U for free), The Wolf Among Us Episode 4: In Sheep's Clothing
Someday - Watch Dogs

Mind Zero is a maybe, depending on reviews.
179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Civilization: Beyond Earth - Finally an Alpha Centauri successor? on: May 22, 2014, 02:29:43 AM
There are a few new screenshots here, but they're pretty similar to what we've already seen.
180  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: May 21, 2014, 11:50:48 AM
Has anyone tried using a USB flash drive with the Wii U for extra storage?  I know Nintendo doesn't recommend it, but I would just be using it to store game downloads.  Since the "8 GB" model is actually 3 GB, I don't have enough room to download the free game that comes with Mario Kart 8.
181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (05/19) on: May 19, 2014, 10:12:28 AM
Day One - nothing
Someday - Transistor, Tropico 5, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II
Maybe - Wolfenstein: The New Order, Drakengard 3

Although Microsoft has yet to confirm it, it looks like an HD collection of Halo 1 - 4 is also coming XBOne.

otter's was close to my favorite, but my favorite was definitely 'I found it'  my fiancee laughed for entirely too long on that part

Very good part as well with just one thing that bothered me.

Spoiler for Hiden:
There was a body on the floor indicating that Garret had killed someone while getting out of his box, seemed a bit out of place along with the humor of the moment

Spoiler for Hiden:
That scene bothered me too.  It seemed like Coulson was waiting to see if Garrett would wake up, so why didn't he stop Garrett from killing that scientist?  If he wasn't there when it happened, then he's still responsible for getting that scientist killed by foolishly leaving a cyborg's supposedly dead body without a guard.

I'm surprised to see PS3/360 versions, and now I'm torn.  I was planning on getting the PS4 version, but it's going to cost $60, while the PS3 version will only be $40.  I can't imagine the PS4 version will look that much better, so I might just go with cheaper one, especially with Sacred 3 coming out a week later.

For this particular game, the differences are likely to be larger than just graphics. The current-gen versions will be closer to the PC version in terms of things like number of enemies, for example.

I hadn't thought of that, and I think Blizzard did say the PS4/XBOne versions would have greater monster density.  I need an excuse to buy a PS4 anyway, so I guess I'm back to the PS4 version.

Someday - Super Time Force (XBLA)
191  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Driveclub on: May 09, 2014, 01:35:15 PM
Well, that was fast - Sony has changed the policy so that if you do the $50 upgrade, you'll get to keep the game even if your PS+ subscription runs out.
192  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: May 09, 2014, 11:06:17 AM
The console version has been delayed for six months  icon_eek  However, if you buy and play the game on PC by the end of June, you can get the PS4/XBOne edition for $20, including character transfer and 30 days of play time.
193  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on: May 09, 2014, 09:15:40 AM
I loved the humor in the last episode, even if it did seem odd that the team is cracking jokes.  The best lines were May's "Look out HYDRA, here we come" and Coulson's "Get ready for a large file transfer"  icon_biggrin  I hope they'll continue to inject more humor and fun into the show.
194  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Driveclub on: May 08, 2014, 02:07:10 AM
I would guess that they're trying to prevent people from using free trials or one-month memberships to get the discount, which seems rather silly.  The frequent PS+ sales often give more than $10 off on games, and you get to keep those games.  Between this and the fact that the PS+ version only contains about 20% of the full game, I don't think the developers are making many people happy.
195  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Valiant Hearts : The Great War on: May 08, 2014, 12:00:02 AM
Back when Child of Light was announced, Ubisoft also announced another game using the UbiArt framework - Valiant Hearts : The Great War.  From the press release -
Quote
The story of Valiant Hearts The Great War focuses on the journey of five people as they brave the battles and difficulties of the Great War following their faithful canine companion. The game is set in the Western Front, a crossroads between World War Oneís Allied and Central Powers and home to some of the Warís most intense military confrontations. All of the main characters are inextricably drawn together, and friendship, love, sacrifice and tragedy befall each as they help each other to retain their humanity against the horrors of war.

Here's the trailer that reveals the release date - June 24/25 on PS3/4 and XBox 360/One.

Quote from: rittchard on May 07, 2014, 08:30:22 PM

I often wonder what these big over-paid network execs get their money for.  This just seems like an overall poorly thought out concept for a TV series.  I mean, where do they expect to go with it over time?  Every year we get to see lil Batboy and Catgirl get a little older?  Really? 

That said, I'm still willing to give it a chance for Ben (finally remembered his first name lol).

I think the Batman stuff is going to be mostly in the background, and the show will be mostly a police procedural.  They're probably looking to attract fans of cop shows, organized crime dramas, and Batman.  Of course, action/spy shows are also a popular genre now, and that didn't really help Agents of SHIELD's ratings.  It's hard to tell how well the show will do, but I can see why they're taking a chance on it.
197  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (5/4) on: May 05, 2014, 08:39:17 AM
Day One - Age of Mythology HD, Peggle 2

They've also announced what will be included in the PS+ version - all modes will be playable, but with only 5 tracks (in one country) and 10 cars.
