I loved the mod, but I hope they mean this will be a companion to HL2, but there's nothing in the announcement that indicates that it is. In fact, as I read the comments, they seem to be suggesting that this will be using a modification of the original HL engine, not Source. Seems to me their energies would be better focused making the game with Source. Seems like it would be counter-productive otherwise, as I can't see many would be wanting to play on such an old engine anymore. They're worried of losing tons of work due to moving to the Source engine, but what they could perhaps do is team up with Project Black Mesa and have them share resources, all the while giving Black Mesa an official Co-Op component.  I'd be far more excited about that than this arriving years too late while everyone else has moved on to Source.

Yeah, Watch Dogs is another I'm looking forward to smile I just think that in general Rockstar could use a little bit of expanding their world. There seems to be a lot of repetition in what gets represented.

Sleeping Dogs is nice and all, and I do love the atmosphere. But even on easy, I struggle with the combat. It seems rather unforgiving, especially given that's the kind of combat it focuses on. I kept on losing on one of the early missions because there were too many guys ganging up. And to be honest, the driving isn't all that great either. Very stiff feeling.

Yeah, I've played Sleeping Dogs, but had to abandon it as I find the combat difficult. I still think there's a lot that could be done with setting a modern GTA game in London, or anywhere outside the US, really. And even if they do continue to stick to American cities, it would be nice to see a new one, like Seattle or Chicago.

If nothing else, it would be fun to see Rockstar poking fun at the British instead of just Americans for a change. slywink

British poking fun at themselves?,NEVER!!! Tongue

They did do the GTA expansion that was set in London,and there have been a few British support characters in the games,Shaun Ryder in San Andreas comes to mind,because he was from Manchester....wasn't that old naked guy in Lost and Damned British as well?,or am i getting that mixed up(I remember British Flags outside where he was)

Personally though,I think America is where it should always be,every other country is boring,its more crazy than anywhere else in the world icon_lol and then you have it parodied(?) over that as well by GTA,also we haven't got the space for an open world game  icon_wink

Yeah, but nothing much was done with it in the modern era of GTA games. There are loads of caper movies that take place there. I also think that the narrow roads could make for interesting chases and scenarios. I mean, why limit it to America only? They're already making another game set in Los Santos, which as much as I'm looking forward to it, seems to suggest that they could expand their world a bit by doing other cities. I guess I'm a sucker for variety slywink The things you could do with the rolling hills and driving on the wrong side of the road!

This is probably the game I'm most looking forward to right now. After SA, I went back and started Vice City and it's almost unplayable now. The gameplay mechanics are one thing in Rockstar games that have been constantly improving, and it was actually quite a bit of a shock how clunky VC was compared to SA and how much SA had improved on things we take for granted now, such as mouselook while in-car. It makes me appreciate how far things have come.

And maybe my eyes were deceiving me, but in that trailer we see a jet going over a dam. Possibly the Sherman Dam from SA? If so, it will be interesting to see how they incorporate landmarks like that since they're not incorporating San Fierro and Las Venturas.

And you know, after GTA V, I'd like to see them return to London. London hasn't been depicted in the GTA series since the first game's two expansions. Would love to see what they could do with a modern GTA set in that.

I see it as a combination of both things. That there likely was a planned reorganization, but that the massive embarrassment that was the XBone reveal hastened his retreat, that he saw his time limited at the company and started to count his cards. Had the XBone been well received, it likely would have been a different story and he'd had gone on to perhaps be promoted during a reorganization. The two situations aren't exclusive to each other.  After how the XBone was received, as someone pointed out, he likely saw the writing on the wall and knew that even if he were personally cleared, that he wouldn't be moving up all that much from where he was.

The reviews aren't kind on this one. And everything I've read about it seems to indicate it's a Hollywood action movie with a Western theme rather than a true Western. I don't think Westerns are in any danger, however, as we've had some great Westerns in the last few years.

They do, but as far as I know they don't have any bearing on the main game and are just there to teach you some driving skills.

Wow, yeah. There are restrictions for a reason. This sounds like a terrible idea, one that would quickly become overused and overrun by those who just want to cause trouble. At the very least, you need to balance things out, like say, making it a persistent world where when the players log-off, their characters then become bots that would populate the server and protect what's owned against assault, and using skills and weapons that you've acquired while playing.

I'm likely going to get some hate over this, but I watched the original movie recently and it doesn't stand up too well. Much of it feels very low-budget, and the best part of it is Sean Connery's short role. I think in that respect, a remake would make sense.

As for roles:
Ian McShane as Ramirez
Jason Statham as Connor.

Or for the laugh of it:
Billy Connelly as Ramirez
Peter Dinklage as Connor

Read that MS plans on bringing Kinect to the PC, to be able to control PCs via voice and gestures. Can't see that being successful, especially in light of all the privacy concerns with Kinect 2.

For someone who enjoys following the gaming industry almost as much as gaming itself the past 2 weeks have been awesome!

Yeah, it's been really interesting watching the developments. Good on MS for changing their mind. It just goes to show that sometimes it's good to listen to your future customer. For something as personal as a console, what's offered can make a big difference. And just because something might sound good on paper doesn't always mean it would be good in practice.

The UI looks a bit like the new Playstation Store UI, so likely they were doing some experiments. I just hope it's much faster than the Store is, as navigation in the store is very sluggish.

But I wouldn't be surprised if a 3rd party were to come out with PS4 controllers resembling the XBox controllers.

I'm surprised no one ever did for the PS3, or if they did it was a real quiet release.

Yeah, cause I've seen many different designs for the original NES controller from 3rd parties, and with the influx of 360 gamers going with the PS4, it would be smart for a company to do that, so that they can feel at home. On the other hand, maybe it's a question of manufacturing rights since both controllers are iconic designs in their own right, it may be that MS would take issue to an XBox style controller being used on the PS4 and not allow manufacturing of it. In the end, everyone should feel comfortable.

I tried playing MGS4 and gave up. It was so confusing. Didn't help that it was the only one I had played, making it feel like I had come in the middle of a conversation. I had gotten it with my PS3 bundle and ended up giving it to my brother.

I hate the dual shock controller though and cannot comprehend why they didn't scrap it and make a new design all together.

Because believe it or not a lot of people like the Dual Shock just fine.

Yeah, I have small hands, so I feel the Dual Shock feels more comfortable. It just fits my hands better and the ergonomics feel just right. The XBox controller's always felt awkward to me. But I wouldn't be surprised if a 3rd party were to come out with PS4 controllers resembling the XBox controllers.

Iím surprised people thought the price would be less than $500.  I figured that would be the bare minimum for the base units and maybe a $100 less for the version bundled with the Live subscription.

I'm surprised that MS didn't learn from Sony's fail at pricing with the PS3 at launch. It crippled them and was a horrible move. We will see if Sony learned....but all signs from them are that they have. Guess we will find out tonight.

Considering Phil Harrison has been with Sony with the PS3 Launch and now MS for XBO, I'm not terribly surprised. He certainly hasn't learned anything it seems. This launch is falling into the same trap, including even using some of the same terminology equal to the emotion engine during the reveal.

Haven't played Deus Ex all that much yet, but I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I might have to abandon Sleeping Dogs, because while it is beautiful, I'm finding the combat a touch too difficult. It's not very forgiving, where the counters aren't recognized unless they're perfectly timed. Having trouble with the Stick Up and Deliver mission due to that reason.

I think it is the same one. It's credited as being a Hungarian, Ireland and Canadian production produced by Showtime. I think Razgon might mean the one that is listed as being a France and Germany production.

The Borgias with Jeremy Irons.

Nah, it's a detail they had made before everything had been decided. They eventually settled on T for Tiberius. The older doctor is also before DeKelley joined the cast, I think the same doctor from the Pilot? Dr Piper was his name. Also, you might notice, that at some point, Kirk mentions the ship being the "United Space Ship Enterprise." That's another detail when things weren't yet finalized. You can see in the early episodes how they're still experimenting with things.

I would say yeah because there are still gang members(Grove Street Vs Ballas) and you also see gang tags spray painted in the trailers,i hope you will be able to will be interesting to go back to that neighbourhood and see how it has changed

Awesome. I know it won't happen, but it would be funny if one of the safehouses were CJ's old house, with maybe some pics of him as a nod. Given how popular SA was, I think they should at least make reference to it.

I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but one of the most disturbing things about all this is a patent that they've filed that would, in practice, allow them to monitor you (and not only you, but how many people at the same time) via kinect as a way to enforce media licenses. It almost reads as a satire. The idea that they've even thought of doing that is downright scary. The idea that they would charge you is not surprising, but the method on how they'd get there opens up a whole new can of worms in regards to privacy. Hopefully they don't go forward with that.

From the article:
Basically, when you buy or rent something like a movie, you'll only be granted a "license" for a certain number of people to watch it. If Kinect detects more people in the room than you had a license for, it can stop the movie, and even charge you extra.

@Rumpy,I actually did notice the difference in make up in the two episodes for Spock,(mainly because his eyebrows were all over the show)but saw that Spock in the pilot acted like everyone else,he just had pointed ears/eyebrows,while in the episode after the pilot Uhura came onto Spock and he was having none of it(whether he meant to dismiss her or not),so he was as the morbid Vulcan Spock that i know(and love)

Yeah, that's something I forgot to mention. With Spock's return, they decided to emphasis his alieness and make him more of a key player, and it's also when they decided to give Spock those characteristics of rejecting emotion.
