The GT review is up! Our reviewer, Travis, is a hardcore Halo fan, so I know when he says it's a good Halo game, it's a good friggin Halo game!

Very interesting. Microsoft's primary measure of success with the Xbox is Xbox Live engagement now, rather than shipped console numbers. So they consider themselves more akin to Steam, as a service provider, than a box like PS4 and Wii. My initial reaction was that this is MS's way of changing the conversation from "PS4 is outselling XB1" to "The Xbox platform is growing", but I think it's indicative of the long-term direction Xbox... which is basically the same direction as Windows 10.

I'm not sure about you all, but suddenly the Xbox strategy just snapped into focus for me.

I'm not sure, I didn't finish Human Revolution so I don't know where Sarif stood by the end of it.

It depends on the game. If it's a content-oriented game (focus on story and world) I'll give it more time, probably 4-5 hours before I pass judgement. If it's gameplay oriented game (Sim City, Street Fighter), probably 2 hours.

I just started playing tonight and so far I like it. The graphics are pretty and the framerate is smooth, I haven't experienced technical issues, either. The mechanics haven't changed much, and in fact after playing MGS5 they feel kinda clunky, but overall the controls are tight enough for you to parkour and assassinate. I'm really digging the world and the atmosphere, Victorian London is an awesome setting. Evie, the female assassin, is a badass!

Did you play Unity and if so how does it compare to Unity? (I hated Unity, but loved AC IV)

I skipped Unity so my closest point of comparison is AC IV: Black Flag. If your love for AC IV hinged heavily on naval combat, the horse carriage stuff in Syndicate won't satisfy you. But if you were into IV for the characters, the story, the action, the exploration, etc., you'll enjoy Syndicate.

A new trailer has been released. From the front page:

The ďAdam Jensen 2.0Ē trailer, focuses on Jensenís struggle to reconcile both sides of this conflict, as he is basically a living weapon thanks to all of his augmentations. The video also shows off some of the new weapons and abilities players will have at their disposal depending on how they choose to play through the game.

It's OK if Nintendo wants to innovate. Their innovations brought us analog sticks and controller vibration (even if they weren't the first do it, they at least made it a standard), among other things. But third parties need to feel welcomed too and that's only going to happen if the hardware is powerful enough, the software and network architecture is familiar, and the default controller works well with other developer's games. We're all hoping that Nintendo finally realizes this and it would be truly great if they could figure out how to innovate within those guidelines.

With Black Friday a bit more than a month away, the leaks are starting to roll in.

Today's big leak is of the Dell Home and Home Office 2015 Black Friday Ad, which includes a $300 Xbox One Fallout 4 bundle, ...

That's a ridiculously awesome deal. I wonder how many bundles Dell has in their inventory...

I bought the game, but ended up just watching it with my favorite female let's players to hear their reactions and opinions. I plan to play it with my girlfriend later, introduce her to the new style of adventure games.

That's a really interesting way to experience this game... have you done this with any others?

Kotaku's expose' on what really happened to Destiny   is a pretty good read and explains so much about the initial game

I was wondering when this article would come out, I actually thought Polygon would be the one to produce it.

97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/20) on: October 19, 2015, 08:11:40 PM
AC Syndicate, Life is Strange Ep. 5, and possibly Rebel Galaxy. I'm interested in Warhammer, I played a demo at E3 that was promising.

Life is Strange comes to a close with the fifth episode, "Polarized", releasing this week. Check out the trailer for it.

I'm not sure why you'd want to, but you can watch the first half hour of the game if you like. I guess that's kinda like a demo?

Whatever they do it needs to be affordable. Should be $200 tops IMO.

Why?  What other piece of high end modern electronics that you expect to last for years do you buy for $200?  A TV?  Computer?  A tablet?  Your phone?  Surely not, unless you went bottom of the line (and the cost is not subsidized over the course of a multi-year contract).  And bottom of the line anything is certainly not capable of playing high end games for years to come.

It baffles me how people are constantly saying consoles are too expensive when they are relevant for 5-10 years, but they'll replace a $600 tablet or phone after a couple years or less. 

Because many of us already invested in a Wii U, so charging full price for another console feels like double dipping on Nintendo's part. At the very least, Wii U owners should be accommodated in some way to encourage migration. It's a tall order to ask someone who paid $3-350 for a Wii U to buy another Nintendo console, which could be another dud on top of everything, for an additional $3-350, while the competition only charges you once.

Like recent previous AC offers through GMG, it's for a Uplay key rather than a Steam key (which loads the game through Uplay anyway). However, Uplay and I have been doing well together for quite a while so I don't foresee an issue.

  Watch Dogs is the best example of that: the standard game looked adequate in a flat, lifeless sort of way, but was easily modded to be absolutely gorgeous with just a couple files.

Not to derail, but can you point me to some of those mods? I'd love to check it out.

Iíve been pretty happy with my WiiU.  As a predominantly PC gamer it has the most console exclusives of the current generation.  What I am most interested in is whether or not it will be backwards compatible with the WiiU and if they will finally have a connected eShop.    The WiiU has a lot of good games at this point and it would be a shame if people missed out on them because they decided to skip the WiiU and move onto its successor.

It would be smart of Nintendo to make their consoles not only a platform for new development, but a library for past titles also.

The Wii U is fully compatible with Wii, right?
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Nintendo NX Console - aka Super Nintendo 2 on: October 16, 2015, 04:53:00 PM
Software development kits are going out; this thing is real, people! Analysts are talking about a potential 2016 release, but I don't see how if dev kits are going out now, games can be coming out by 2016.

Oh, and I'm dubbing it the Super Nintendo 2 until the official name is announced  nod

Why am I excited? I don't know, I just am. I want a good, respectable Nintendo console.

For whatever reason I started playing this on PS4 this week despite getting it as a gift last xmas. I love the writing so far, but what has struck me so far is how good the game looks when you are driving around. They put so much work into the road textures, with grooved parts on the highways and wear and repaired spots all all over the streets that it looks downright realistic. I'm really going to have to get this on PC as well somewhere down the line.

I own the PC and PS4 versions and difference between the two is not that significant, believe it or not. On paper it seems significant when you tally up the additional effects and the increased framerate. But the PS4 version looks so good that I simply don't recognize many of the PC improvements, and this is running maxed out, 1440p, solid 60. The increased framerate makes driving feel more responsive, but otherwise I actually ended up spending more time with the PS4 version.

That's interesting. I seem to recall that the first Revelations received great reviews and great feedback from players, whereas the second game wasn't well liked at all. Everything I heard about it indicated that it had turned into a The Last of Us-wannabe, but that it didn't manage do a single one of the good things that The Last of Us did right.

Yeah, there was a lot of positive feedback for Revelations which is why I ended up buying it. Maybe my issue was with the 3DS controls (can you imagine not having control over the camera?) moreso than the content of the game.

Besides more details on the upcoming WoW expansion, Legion, I'm looking forward to playing more Overwatch and a possible new Diablo 3 expansion announcement.
