I picked this up on the PS4 on sale and after "finishing" the main mission I feel ripped off. This game exists for nothing more than to buy some more time to finish the Phantom Pain. I know I can go back in and play the side missions, but I really have no desire to. The single map in the game is tiny, the enemy AI is brain dead and why the hell can't snake lean left or right from behind cover? Reading the prologue material and watching the end movie was much more enjoyable than the actual gameplay. I have no idea how this game scored so well with reviewers. This is coming from someone who has played every single Metal Gear Solid game and loved them (Except for that action one with Raiden as the lead, please god no more Raiden). I might pay $5 for it, but even that is a stretch, I suppose I should be happy I only spent $18 instead of the normal $29.

It really ruined my desire to play the Phantom Pain when it comes out.

With both sides only needing a draw to advance, the US/Germany might be the most boring game in the history of World Cup football.  They're both going to play extremely conservative, not wanting to take any chances and give up a stupid goal.  That's what I'm hoping for, anyways.

I'm thinking Germany will play really conservative, all they really need is a tie and even if they somehow lose to the US they are +4 on goal differential so the only team that has a chance of squeaking by them is Ghana at -1 and no way is Ghana going to outscore Portugal by that many.

As to Concacaf teams performing well, I don't really see this being a big break-through world cup for the conference. I'm still of the mind that Croatia will find a way to advance at the expense of Mexico in Group A, and Honduras is out unless you believe in divine/miraculous math. IMO Costa Rica and USA are the only Concacaf teams that will advance to the round of 16. As to teams of the Americas doing well (thinking Columbia and Chile here in additional to the usual Argentina, Brazil) in general, I think that's par for the course for world cup held in the Americas. All World Cups hosted in the Americas, have always been won by a team of the Americas:

Uruguay 1934 - Uruguay
Brazil 1950 - Uruguay
Chile 1962 - Brazil
Mexico 1970 - Brazil
Argentina 1978 - Argentina
Mexico 1986 - Argentina
United States 1994 - Brazil

Now if you were to be talking Women's World Cup - hell yes, both USA and Canada are cup contenders from Concacaf.  slywink thumbsup

Mexico will advance. Concacaf has been tough in this cup and Mexico is playing with a new found confidence.

Getting past all the arguments, here is what I see as the likely outcome of this case. The Redskins appeal the decision, which is a lengthy process (Their last appeal on this issue took 17 years). While the appeal is open they retain their trade mark protection. BUT the NFL steps in (Much like the NBA) and kindly tells Dan Snyder that they need to change the name and logo. The combination of pressure from the NFL, activist groups and the amount of money the Redskins will have to spend just to appeal this case could be enough to make then "voluntarily" change the name.

ON the other hand Snyder could take the the Donald Sterling approach and say F-you all and fully litigate it. In which case who knows what the outcome will be.

The biggest problem I have with it is that we have a branch of the government deciding what is and isn't "offensive" based on speech. If you guys so clearly want to believe in the free market then why can't the USPTO sit back and watch the trademark wither away because the American people don't buy the products it's associated with?  

Why is it is so difficult to understand that this is out and out racism.  Redskin is NOT a tribal name, nor is it a person's name.  It's a racist slur.  Indians have been trying to get it banned for ages.  This isn't a new endeavor created by a "PC crowd".  If there was a team called the New York Kikes or the San Diego Tar Babies, would that be okay?  

And the American people have repeatedly proven that they aren't ALWAYS going to do the right thing.  As a matter of fact, if the government DIDN'T step in from time to time, we'd still have lynchings, whites only water fountains and segregation in many areas.

1. I never denied that it's offensive or racist.

2. Lynchings, whites only water fountains, and segregation are a far cry from a corporate logo and team name. In fact they're not even in the same ball park. We're not talking about basic human rights here, what we're talking about is hurting people's feelings. It's a slippery slope when the government starts making decisions based off of hurt feelings.
I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt but the fact that Zeke agrees with you could be a hint that you might be wrong on this one. smile

I'm not so sure that Zeke does agree with me. His opinion from what I can tell is "Damn liberals are trying to force change on us again". My opinion is more rooted in the fact that I don't think the Government should decide what "hurts people feelings". The free market should do that in this case because it is a company selling a product. In this case the product name just happens to be offensive.

I know there are limits to the "Free Market" principle. We can't let companies do whatever they want all the time. In this case though we seem to be saying "it's ok for the government to deny trademark protection because the trademark hurts people's feelings". Which to me is a huge difference from a company that is actively denying people's rights or actively hurting the community. "Feelings" can be tricky.

Is the name offensive? Sure it is. But why should the government tell us what is and what isn't offensive when it comes to trademarks attached to a product?

I barely played the last one which is weird considering I played the heck out of all the ones before it.  I'm not sure if I just got tired of same old gameplay.  Hopefully this one will be fresh.

I know this is an unpopular opinion but I actually liked the 3rd one better than the second one. The story made more sense to me. Turning an entire section of the city into a prison in part 2 was a really bad premise that didn't make a whole lot of sense.

Everything about the game looks awesome with the exception of the Mecha-Batman suit. I'm a big fan of the agile martial arts expert take on Batman and if you dress him up in an Iron Man suit it takes that away. But who am I kidding, I will buy the game day 1 and play the heck out of it.

Dragon Age is this year, and that game doesn't look appealing at all. I'm not alone in feeling that way either, as there has been almost no talk about that game in games media since E3 started. The trailer alone showed how different it still is from the glorious first game in the series, with comic-book superheroes somersaulting, dive-stabbing and doing all kinds of "press X to AWESOME!" things that make it look like they've learned nothing at all since DA2. Also, it's EA.

So yeah, what I'm trying to say is that I'm excited about Bloodborne and The Witcher 3. Probably more for the latter than the former, but I'll take both. smile

The gameplay on DA3 looks like it's styled after ME3, which is ok with me. But hey I liked DA 1 and DA 2 (even though they are very different), so I may not be the best person to ask when it comes to the DA series.

139  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: PS Vita Impressions! Price drop! Casual Edition! Vita TV! on: June 12, 2014, 05:07:08 PM
I picked up the Vita 2.0 to replace my broken 1.0. I love the feel of the 2.0 in my hands, it is noticeably thinner and lighter. The change in screen isn't that noticeable either. If you go straight from the 1.0 to the 2.0 you can see a difference, but the 2.0 is still a really good screen and newcomers to the Vita shouldn't be bothered by the screen at all. I did have to adjust the brightness scale upwards in the system settings though, once I did that it was close to the look of the 1.0. The one thing that feels much better to me are the analog sticks, not sure what's different about them, but they seem to stick to my thumb better than the 1.0 version does. The added battery life is nice too.

All in all the 2.0 is a good system if you don't already have the 1.0 or need to replace yours.

I thought the same thing, the look of the characters and the world have a Mass Effect feel.

As for the Xbox exclusives Sunset Overdrive looks really good to me, depending on reviews that may be the game that gets me to buy the Bone.

Argh why can't I get remote play to work even in my own house 10 feet away from the PS4.  Boo-urns to remote play, I say.

Doesn't the remote play go from the PS4 to the router and then to the Vita? So maybe it's a router issue. I have no problems with remote play within my house. Heck it works out on my back deck.

Also, the video really seemed to indicate a much lighter tone, almost more like Dead Rising or something.  That sounded like Jack Black at the end.

Agreed on all fronts, and that was definitely Jack Black at the end. Not sure how close the game will actually look to that trailer but I like what I saw.

There's no doubt that both platforms have good content coming up. Everyone's a winner this year.

I agree if I'm grading both of these shows I would give them both a B. Microsoft did what they needed to do, which was show games. Sony came out and showed more exclusives that I'm interested in, but they stumbled with the whole movie and TV parts. Pretty even IMO. Also, I was hoping for a killer Vita game and they didn't show one at all.

Here's hoping that Nintendo knocks it out of the park today. I'm really hoping for a $100 drop in price for WiiU starting this month. That would get me to finally pick one up.

After watching both shows I think the only reason people are saying Xbox has more coming this year is because it was the theme of their show. If you actually stack up the exclusives it's pretty even, if you include indies then Sony pulls ahead. So marketing does help.

I thought Sunset Overdrive looked really good. I'm still not sure how Sony let Insomniac develop this for MS. It definitely looks fun. Other than that there wasn't much I saw that made me say "I have to get an Xbone". The Witcher, Tomb Raider, Tom Clancy, Ass Creed, I can get all of those elsewhere.

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

NI No Kuni is an excellent JRPG. I paid $60 for it and I don't regret the purchase at all. At $5 it's beyond a no brainer.

I don't even know what's on the horizon the look forward to... NHL 15, I guess?

I'm with YK, in fact I have a backlog at this point. I'm currently playing The Show, Wolfenstein, and after the PSN update tonight I will have Pixel Junk Shooter and Trine 2 added to it. Not to mention Outlast and Resogon in my backlog and Transistor as a future purchase.

Edit: They just arrived. Less than 24 hrs later. W0000000000000000T!

The entire series is on Amazon Prime now if you have that. A lot of HBO shows just got added to it, the notable exception is Game of Thrones.
