Wow, so I just saw that the PS4 beat the XB1 in the new NPD. I seriously didn't see that coming with all the Titanfall hype and (rather desperate looking) firesales and bundling going on at various retailers for the XB1 as of late.

You mean Titan-fail?  I kid!  I'm still buying the sequel on PS4.

Eurogamer has received confirmation from Activision that the XB1 version of The Amazing Spiderman 2 has been indefinitely postponed:

Quote from: Eurogamer
Activision has confirmed the postponement of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Xbox One to Eurogamer but said it will collaborate with Microsoft "in an effort to release" the title at some point.

There's still no reason for the delay - and whether the game will actually release at all still seems in doubt.


I think Spiderman videogames have been on a speedy decline ever since Web of Shadows and have no intention of buying this anyway, but people keeping lists of next-gen exclusives can tally up one more.

This has the potential to send Sony fanbois into a flaming tornado of bone bashing. I have to admit it makes me curious as to why the Xbone version is the only one that is "postponed".

The core game is a lot of fun.  Good, old school turn based, party based rpg.  My only complaint is that the game engine performed poorly in certain areas of the game world.  There's an area in the NW corner of the world that crushed my framerate, and I have a decent rig.

The engine for this game is just terrible. I don't understand why they went the route they did. Why not just use an established Engine like Unreal 3 and modify it to the game. For starters it would have looked much better and it would have actually performed much better. Plus it would be much more future proof for sequels than the MMX engine is. I don't get it. But hey the game was still fun anyway.

I'm out in the country so my provider choice is either Dish or Direct. What I normally do is ride out the 2 year contract period, then switch back to the other company for their 1 year promo deal. But that gets old.

I did dial down the channels I subscribe to. I'm down to the smallest package available and that saved me about $40 a month. Still it would be nice to be able to stream everything I wanted through the PS4 or a similar device.

Digital Foundry quick write up on performance of the 360 version. Overall pretty impressive job by Bluepoint

Performance analysis: Titanfall on Xbox 360

Yep, again showing why there was a complete media blackout on the 360 version along with the delay. It was too good and MS was probably worried it would reflect poorly on the XB1, if launched at the same time. Smart business move, but not really fair to the consumer.

It's actually kind of amazing how well the 360 hardware has held up over time. I have to believe that the hardware was designed at some point in 2004. Making it 10 year old hardware capable of running a modern game without too much compromise. To put that in perspective that would be like trying to get a PS1 or N64 game to play on the NES.

I would STRONGLY recommend holding off on watching tonight's episode if you haven't seen Captain America yet. It won't completely ruin the movie, but I think that CA will be more enjoyable without seeing what happens on tonight's SHIELD. They didn't waste any time jumping right into the huge changes that one would expect after seeing The Winter Soldier, and they give up quite a few secrets that would take some of the surprise out of the movie.

Warnings aside, tonight was probably the best episode of AoS so far, and it's pretty awesome to see the way that they're pulling all parts of the Marvel universe together. Now I'm really curious to see what happens next week. At this point, I can totally see AoS setting the stage for the next round of Marvel films...very cool  icon_cool

Thanks for the warning. I think what I will do is save the rest of the season, then watch them all at once after I see Captain America. Which probably won't happen until it comes out on Blu-Ray.

There's an ESPN.GO app for the Roku that functions just like HBO.GO.  But that means you'll have to keep at least the minimum service from your cable company and add ESPN, most likely. 

That's the problem. Just let me pay $5 a month to use ESPN go and I'm all set. $7.99 for Netflix, $7 for Amazon Prime, Whatever HULU Plus costs, plus $5 for Espn and I would see huge savings.

Is there a way to get the ESPN channels through a ROKU or similar device? I'm seriously thinking about going the same route and the only thing I would miss are the sports options. ESPN really needs to get into the streaming business.

That's got to be a joke. The Human Torch is one thing, but casting Batman as African American would put the fanbois into a tornado sized shit storm.

Yours isn't that far off mine. Here's how I would rank them:

-Marvel's The Avengers
-Iron Man
-Iron Man 3
-Thor
-Thor: The Dark World
- Captain America: The First Avenger
- Norton Hulk
-Iron Man 2

Although I've only seen Thor: The Dark World once so that one may move up or down depending on subsequent viewings. Too me the real stinker out of the bunch is Iron Man 2. Cap 1 was ok, but I felt like the first hour was slow and then the final showdown with Red Skull in the plane was a real letdown.

Blackjack I'm curious what rank you would give all the Marvel U films. Ironman 1-3, Cap, Thor 1-2, Avengers, Norton Hulk (I didn't miss any did I?). 1 being the best.

Anyone know which party's judges went in favor of this?

Predictably it was the conservative judges. They routinely rule in favor of big business. That's dumbing it down a bit, but essentially that's what they do.

I'm with you on the cinema experience Blackjack.  Some movies are just perfect for the big screen. 

I'm the opposite, I hate the group movie watching experience. The one exception has been the Hobbit movies in 48fps 3D. Man do those movies look amazing when watched on the proper screen. Even then it has nothing to do with the group experience, if I could I would watch it in the theater all by myself.

Not sure who else is still watching, but is it me or has the show finally hit its stride for the past 3 episodes or so?

To me it has, and even the directing had gotten better, with snappier cuts and dialog, well only a bit more.

I fully understand why many people stopped watching, and are skeptical though, it's been a slog. However, things are ramping up, and I guess the whole Captain America movie coming out this week forced an upping of the stakes.

I wonder if the TV cast will make cameos in the movie.

I haven't watched this week's episode yet, but it does seem to be getting its groove.  Plus Amy Acker is going to be on soon.

This weeks episode is probably the best one to date. The cast is finally starting to settle in and the story line really came together. Having Bill Paxton as a featured actor doesn't hurt either.

Spoiler for Hiden:
How cool was it when you saw Deathlock with the infrared, he looked just like the comic book version.

If I have a book in Prime, it means that the ebook can only be sold on Amazon. I can get as many as several hundred borrows a month on Amazon and I actually see more, in royalties, than I do from a sale.

Nice I guess I will just borrow it when I'm done with part 1.

I think we were supposed to draw the connection between their storm-trooper herding trap and Rick's bunny trap earlier in the episode.  Given that, it's plausible that Rick deliberately gambled that they would be led to his friends. 

There was a fairly abrupt cut between the scene where they were scoping things out and when they all just jump over the fence, so I'm guessing they had some sort of contingency worked out before leaping in.  Certainly they had time to think things through a little better than what was shown on screen (Rick burying the extra weapons). 

Also side question, did they show a bunch of baby formula on the ground somewhere, and if so, where was that?  Were we to assume/guess Judith and gang are already there as well? 

So what you're saying is that Rick is Jedi Luke and Terminus is Jabba's palace? It's a good theory. My guess is that Rick and Co have some weapons hidden on them somewhere.

Ok I have finished both the good and evil play throughs. I know one of the big complaints about the game is that evil or good doesn't change the game all that much, but I disagree when you are talking about the storyline. This may be especially true if they make part 4 follow the decisions you make in part 3.
 
Spoiler to discuss both endings:

Spoiler for Hiden:
The endings couldn't be anymore different. Good guy Deslin returns to the Tribe as a hero and saves everyone. Bad Guy Deslin really takes a turn to true super villain when he kills the tribe. I honestly didn't see that coming. I thought he would slink off and just start terrorizing the rest of the DUPs, but when he jumps up to do the power bomb on the hall and he smirks at the camera you know he has lost every speck of good he had in him.

As for gameplay, yeah your choices don't change much, but I do think the TV power was a hell of a lot better playing as evil. Especially if you power the invisibility and power blades sets up all the way. The he becomes over powered even on Expert difficulty.

Is there an easy way to look up books that can be borrowed for free with Prime? It seems almost impossible to find books that I want to read that are free with the membership. It seems like Amazon should have a link to every book that is included but I can;t find it anywhere.

Also I primarily use my computer or my Android to buy books on Amazon, and for whatever reason when I use those devices I cannot find a spot to look at just the books that can be borrowed.
