Looks like the January games have been announced, and they finally have a good, somewhat recent game in Sleeping Dogs and there will also be Lara Croft: Guardian of Light.

Roughly a year and a half after PS+ gave Guardian of Light away for their members. retard

Hey it's only 9 months after Plus gave away Sleeping Dogs.  Seriously though, Pllus started off pretty crappy for games and got much better. GFG seems to be getting better and Microsoft didn't give up on it right at the end of their initial announcement.  So I'm pretty happy about it even if I've played both of the games.  Competition could make both of them even better. 

I really enjoyed Sleeping Dogs. It was much better than expected.  I actually got the Platinum on PS3.  It deserves more exposure.

Microsoft is gonna have to get allot better if there's to be any sort of competition in the monthly free games area. PS+ subs got these games awhile ago, and this month will get Brothers and Bioshock Inifinite. Frankly there's no comparison between the two offerings on a month to month basis.

My wife will not let me forget for one moment that Downton Abbey returns a week from Sunday, nor does she believe that I'm cold toward this season after the way the last one ended. I will probably end up watching it because that makes her happy, but I won't last long if it veers too far into soap opera.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Well you can't blame the writers/producers on the ending of season 3. The actor playing Mathew wanted out because of other roles being offered. It wasn't originally in their plans to off 2 main characters in one year.

Not sure what people were expecting. Its a modern day Kaiju movie with flashy CGI. It wasn't made for plot or dialog, anymore than other big summer action movies are.

Her character has been the lone disappointment for me this season. I assumed(as I bet others did) when it was announced she was of course going to be in a more action oriented role. Yet she just stands around looking pretty and berating Oliver about is CEO responsibility.

While it still feels very much like a standard network TV show in its style the two main characters make it worthwhile. I'll keep it on the viewing schedule for now.

Uhh really? The particle accelerator blows up, then crazy lightning hits him, then there's a closeup of him lying there and they show a little red light flicker effect across his face. Pretty sure that's him getting his powers.

I will say i"m still a little nervous with them introducing real superpowers into the world, since the first season was just regular action. Something I actually liked them choosing to do, but I'll hold off till I see more.

Nintendo is doing better right now, but 200,000 Marios sold? That isn`t great news.

Nintendo is cratering in sales. They push barely more than 200k consoles in one of the 2 busiest months of the year. Nintendo is gonna have to have a reckoning about their future after the Holidays.

After Will Smiths last few Box Office performances he's not exactly Mr superstar garanteed box office anymore either.

If Blizzard thinks your account has been compromised or your a gold farmer in WoW its a fucking pain in the ass to get it straightened. Sort of a guilty until proven innocent. Sony does have issues but I could make an endless list of companies who have had network/account problems out there.

Still zero damage modeling, poor sound, no change in the AI. But the usual tons of cars...sorry I don't see how people keep giving the series a pass based on memories of when they played GT1 or 2. This just isn't acceptable from what's supposed to be a AAA racer in 2013.

NPD doesn't give numbers anymore. We'll only have them if MS or Sony allow it. They will also probably do allot of combining to make the numbers look better like last gen, or use doll or values in sales to spin it. Whatever puts their stuff in the best light.

Where are the PS4 games? Throw us some ports, at least.

Your gonna be waiting allot for PS4 titles. The library to get titles from is minuscule and will be for many months. Besides the PS+ version of Driveclub its going to be PS3 and Vita titles coming out for awhile.

The whole attacking shark concept is stupid anyway. Sharks don't hunt humans. They mostly just attack us if they think we're some other animal, which mostly happens when someone is splashing water while swimming along the surface. They'll typically stop their attack once they realize that their target isn't what they thought it is, which is why shark attack victims typically are only bitten, not eaten. The Assassin's Creed developers claim to want to make a realistic pirate setting, which makes it doubly stupid that they're enabling these old myths.

Uh the whole game is based on myths, legends, and fantasy. I hope you aren't playing the game assuming that any of what happens actually ever occurred in real life.

Do you take me for a complete idiot? Tongue

I'm referring to the developers making a huge point out of trying to portray a more realistic kind of pirate in this game than the swashbuckling Johnny Depps we usually get. If they've spent this effort trying to portray more believable pirates, why introduce the shark from Jaws? It kind of undermines their efforts.

I don't see whats more realistic about this game in terms of the characters or the setting than say the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. So no I still don't get your complaint.

Nintendo stop trying to cater to the hardcore market and while the casuals make up a very huge market they are also very slow to upgrade.  Most casuals are probably still using the Wii.

Because most casuals thought the Wii U was just a Wii with a different controller. Nintendo's messaging was horrible for it.

What the hell? This show? I don't even...

Spoiler for Hiden:
What the hell, Malcolm Merlyn is back?

What the effing hell? I know it's a comic book story, but damn.

Although, I am kind of happy he's back in the show, because his kind of madness helped drive the show. It'll be interesting how all these new factions will react to one another and how Oliver and crew will deal with them. Brother Blood isn't quite doing enough right now, and the League of Shadows are a giant threat rather than city specific.

In the comics apparently Merlyn and Oliver came to something of an understanding, but I don't know the details. I'm pretty sure Merlyn spent some time in the Lazarus Pit though, assuming he's still working for the league.

Let's hope the writers can handle this many plotlines and keep the story focused enough on Oliver and co. Things are getting way out of hand with so many villains, and heroes popping up, and there's still that Flash cameo that's supposed to happen.

If the pull this off, they should get the people behind Arrow to just do the damn Justice League movies because that's how complex it's getting.

They are definitely treading a line where they could make the show a mess of plots, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt based on what they have done so far. Its still a thousand times better than the absolute dullness that is Agents of SHIELD.

Also let's not confuse DLC with boosts, payed bypasses, and pay gates.  Horse armor was silly but also wasn't any of those things.  It does sound like some of these titles feature these F2P style micro transactions,  EA started doing this late last gen too.

That's the future IMO. Paid DLC, unlocks, season passes will become even more common. Yea the games are still $60 but publishers will find ways to extract the extra money.

It has that sort of by the numbers network feel to it especially the main cast but it seems pretty well made and hopefully more depth will get shown in the long run. Its supposed to be by the people behind Fringe which was a good if sometimes flawed series so I'll get it more episodes.

I remember Sony saying you could play the game after only a fraction downloaded and it would download the rest.  Is that something that needed to be implemented for games and doesn't just work?


Calling it a fraction is being somewhat generous. Killzone Shadowfall needs around 7 gigs downloaded before you can play it.

Different strokes. I love the sea stuff. I've spent so much time running around cities in previous AC games sailing the ship around to different islands to do tasks, and just searching is fun. The seamless nature of no long loading screens is a huge plus. I'm sure it will wear off after awhile but this game has gotten me interested in AC again when the III one left me indifferent to more in the series.

Being a pirate is just plain fun.


P.S. I'm so glad they have minimized the modern day stuff. The gimmick of it being a gaming studio is cute but the less of it the better.

I think the "pass" was that people kept buying 360's even with all the return's. I had 2 360's die on me and I put up with the waiting because well I liked the games on it so I dealt with it.
