Going to continue my FIFA 14 season and start Assassin's Creed 4. Maybe a little Killzone on the side.

I love it. And I'm an extremely casual soccer fan. Like only watch major tournaments casual.

Got the new PS4 up and running without issue. Except that apparently my email address is already in use so I can't use it to create a new PSN account. But this is my first Sony product so that's impossible. I tried to change the password but the authentication check is your birth date and of course it doesn't match what's in their system. I bet you someone typo'd their email and created an account using mine instead.

Emailed customer support but o doubt anything will get done. I guess alternative is to create a brand new email address just for PSN? Annoying.

Anecdotally it's been a lot easier to find XB1's in stock around here than PS4's, although I'm thinking it's more of a supply issue than demand issue this early in the game.

2 million sold is 2 million sold no matter what. This is good news for the gaming industry.

For the gaming industry, yes 100%. For MS (or Sony)? We'll see when supply starts being greater than demand.

Forza and DR3 are fine and would certainly be on my list at some point,but i don't want to be forced to buy a game i definitely don't want in FIFA

isn't FIFA bundled in for free?

FIFA is amazing. One of the best games out there. I say that as not even a huge soccer fan.

Dead serious. I always just thought the touchpad thing hooked up to the Wii and enabled additional functionality.  

This.

It wasn't until Super Mario 3D World was coming out that I clued in that it was an entire SYSTEM and not a controller.

It could also be that the Wii U was a marketing disaster of a name and most people don't realize it's a whole new system and not just an accessory upgrade to the Wii.
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2920 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: December 02, 2013, 09:24:20 PM
Sales numbers are basically a reflection of how fast the company is manufacturing them, nothing more. No consoles are sitting unbought on the shelf. Xbone did better on Black Friday simply because there was probably more stock available to sell on that particular day. The PS4 might destroy Xbone two Tuesdays from now if they get a shipment and Xbone supply is gone. It'll be March or April, when consoles are actually sitting unbought on shelves, until sales numbers mean something.

I went:

Fifa
ACIV
and
Killzone


and I don't regret it at all. The surprise for me is ACIV, I am so into this game, it's absolutely huge (think Skyrim huge) and I am on a personal quest to complete every single corner of the game.

Fifa is great too, I started my own pro and I play the games as him only, makes it much more enjoyable for me, no having to worry about every single player on the field. I play my position and that's it.

Killzone is great for two things 1. The graphics (easily the best looking launch game). 2. The multiplayer.

105  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS4] Help me pick my games on: December 02, 2013, 02:41:22 PM
So I have a shiny new PS4 wrapped and waiting for me under the Christmas tree. The dilemma is that I now need to get some games for it. I am putting together a PS4 game wish list that will be filled either through presents or gift cards. It looks like I'll be able to get myself three games. The question is, which ones?

Right now I'm leaning towards
1) FIFA 14 - I love FIFA games so this is a no-brainer
2) AssCreed IV - Looks really good from what I've seen on the PS4 and I really enjoy this series
3) Killzone - Getting average reviews but it seems like a good game to show off the graphics and it's a different genre than my first two

However, there is a strong contender for #4
4) NBA 2K14

I love My Career modes in sports games and NBA 2K14 seems to have a great one. The graphics look almost photo-realistic. This games seems like a ton of fun. But I'm already getting FIFA which is a sports game. So this is where you, GT, get to help me. If you could pick any three PS4 games to get with your launch system, what would they be, in order of preference? While my #1 and #2 positions are pretty much locked up, #3 is definitely up for grabs.

still haven't seen any Ps4 or XB1s in the wild myself.  No actual demo kiosks either, which is odd because the nearest Walmart used to have 4 set up:  Wii U, 360, Ps3, Vita.

I got mine nine days after launch at a Best Buy and it wasn't out in the wild. I went to the customer service desk and asked if they had any for sale and they brought out someone else's unclaimed pre-order. Apparently they only guarantee to hold them for a week and after they start selling them off bit by bit. The guy said they had almost 50 in the back room partially paid for and unclaimed so they were selling off 4-5 per day until the stock was gone. They weren't going on the shelf though, you had to ask for them. Usually they were gone within an hour of the store opening. I got lucky as I just happened to be in the area and decided to pop in right when they opened.

Visceral had done some good games, but EA Canada seems to have mainly done sports.

Until roughly 2 years ago EA Canada was the largest game studio in N.A. employing between 1,500 - 2,000 staff. It's famous for the NHL and FIFA games, but that studio maintained many talent pools and supported EA games globally. Many of the assets for games like LotR Return of the King, James Bond EoN among many others were cooperatively developed between that stuido and their sibling EA studios in other parts of the world. They also owned and housed much of Blackbox Entertainment, who produced a number of NFS games (including 2005's NFS MW) and the Skate series, in the same location.

My biggest concern about that studio producing a quality SW game lies with the management who I've never been impressed with. There's loads of underutilized quality talent still there and a heckuva lot more to be had in the city (ex relic Ent., ex Radical Ent., ex Blackbox, ex Propoganda studio, etc.) the studio is located in, but it doesn't amount to much with piss-poor management. IMO if they can get some good management behind this game, it has a good chance of amounting to something - but that's a big "IF".

They did FIFA too? How did I not know that? Ok, they are responsible for two of my favourite games (FIFA and NHL). Cautiously optimistic for this then.
108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: EA Canada/Visceral Games working on open world Star Wars game? on: November 27, 2013, 08:55:01 PM
The NHL series by EA Canada is IMO some of the best gaming out there, but it's a lot different than an open world game. The talent is there, but will it transfer to a different genre?

110  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Did you change your allegiance? on: November 25, 2013, 03:06:51 PM
With the new generation upon us how do your loyalties lie this time around? I am a 360 to PS4 convert. Why? Because I have no use for Kinect and it's features and it's $100 more. Otherwise I would have probably stayed with MS and the Xbox family. But I did a quick analysis at what the $100 would get me and I would use 0% of the features so I spoke with my wallet and went with the less expensive system. I'm sure there are people that went the other way because they are intrigued by what Kinect brings. Although makes me wonder how many sales MS missed out on by not packaging a Kinect-free version at $399.

Anyways, vote! (I think I addressed all the possible combinations in the options....)

In terms of "Hours played" this generation for me has been all about

AssCreed Series
GTA IV/V
Call of Duty/Battlefield
NHL series (08-14)
Batman Series
Rock Band series

I can't pick one because each game/series above is such a different genre. Well maybe not Batman/AssCreed, but they felt like different games to me.
