In fact the only way they could have made the XBO reveal and E3 any worse would be if they had Jamie Kennedy host it.

To me, the reveal was the launch of the Xbone and is therefore linked directly with the E3 event.

That's fair. Microsoft clearly planned those two presentations to complement each other (the reveal focusing more on multimedia, while E3 focused on games), but when seen in isolation, the E3 presentation was good.

Honestly what I remember about Microsoft's E3 was them showing 90% multiplatform games and the Kinect. Followed with Ryse, Dead Rising, and Forza. I have no interest in Ryse or Forza, but Dead Rising looked good. In the end it wasn't even close to what Sony did. Sony came out, did a flying clothesline to MS and then while MS was down they did a swanton bomb off the top rope for good measure. Then they announced $399 as an added punch to the nuts.

IF you hadn't been honest about the lightning, they might have come to peruse and put two and two together and then denied everything.

Yeah even if I had known it before hand I still would have been honest about it. But I really don't see how they could say they didn't happen at the same time short of me telling them that. There's even a blast hole from the lightening in the ground next to the tree trunk.

After the disaster of last year's E3

Actually, Microsoft's E3 presentation last year was pretty good. They got lots of positive feedback from it. Their problem was that Sony knocked out a presentation of their own that went into the history books as one of the most dramatic and invigorating E3 presentations ever.

I don't remember anything positive about last year's E3 presentation by MS. If you watched it in a vacuum maybe. But once Sony got up and pointed out everything that MS is doing wrong it really made MS look bad. The proof is in the sales numbers.

Even worse though was the XBO unveiling event where they focused almost entirely on TV. That was downright terrible for them.

There has been this perception due to its performance compared to the XB1 that it is some kind of miracle machine that gives developers unlimited ability to let their imaginations run wild.

Nobody thinks this (that is rational, anyway).  It just performs better than the XBO.  An open world game like Watch Dogs is going to tax the system.  Infamous benefits because it was only made for one platform.  AC4 is multiplatform and somewhat open world, but the scope is not as large when you're in a city.  From what I have seen of Watch Dogs, it's got traffic, lots of different buildings, etc. and is multiplatform (including last-gen) so it's just not going to run as well as Infamous.

The last Gen part is going to hold it back way more than if it was just developed for this gen and PC. They are essentially developing a game for 10 year old hardware, then optimizing it to look a little bit better on current hardware. Devs will be holding themselves back until they get rid of the multi gen development.

I'm digging the Frank Miller vibe, though it doesn't really mesh well with my vision of Affleck playing the role. He just doesn't seem mature or buff enough to pull off that kind of grit (and yes, I know Affleck is in his 40s but he still looks like he just stepped out of a frat house).



I always pictured the Miller Batman as being in his late 50s early 60s. Did they ever give his actual age in the comic?

The piss parade continues. Because of my honesty I reported to my insurance that the lightening strike and tree happened at two separate times during the day. Therefore they count it as two separate claims with two separate deductibles. I could have easily said the tree fell at the same time as the lightening since the actual spot where the lightening hit the ground is literally 5 feet from the tree trunk. That teaches me to be honest.  @#$(*&%

I should add that the leaking well, felled tree, and lightening strike all happened within about a 20 foot radius. I think I'm going to do as much as I can to stay away from that area this week.

So I get home from work and a tree had fallen on my hot tub and my lawn tractor. I had the lawn tractor next to the hot tub because I have a trailer hooked up to it filled with dirt. The dirt was in the trailer because my well started leaking over the weekend and it's located under the hot tub. Then during dinner lightning struck my house and my satellite dish.  Going from the dish reciever to my stereo to my PS4 to my tv and to my router. All fried.

Keeping tally that's god 3000 scraper 0. I guess the bright side is that my PS3 went unharmed.

Can anyone tell me what the experience and levels are actually used for in this game? I'm up to level 14 or so and I can't see any way that the levels are used. Heck there isn't even a trophy for reaching a certain level. So why are you awarded XP and levels? Is it for Multiplayer match making (I don't play Multiplayer)?

I think we all should be more upset about the lack of quality games..  On both platforms.

Sequel sequel sequel...

In the 1st 6 months of this console gen I've been kept busy with The Show, Need for Speed, Infamous, Lego Marvel, AC4, Fifa 14, Killzone, CD Ghosts, Child of Light, Outlast, and BF4. That's a lot of good games, especially considering that history shows us that the first 6 months is usually a total drought. So I don't really get all the talk about there not being any good games. If I had an Xbox180 then I would add Dead Rising and Forza to the list.

Has microsoft released actual XboxOne80 sales numbers? I know they released consoles shipped, but I'm wondering just how far behind they are with actual consumer sales compared to the PS4. This seems like a rather large step to take so early on and my guess is they really needed to stop the bleeding. So just how bad is the bleeding?

I wish ass showing and body smelling were both ban-worthy reasons at mtg tourneys, I'd win more for sure slywink

This is like banning a reporter from a Brony convention because he points out how creepy everyone there is. They are uncomfortable with someone pointing out the obvious things that they want to ignore.

Received it yesterday.  Tried to play over lunch hour yesterday but the install and required download for teams took too long.  Expect a wait that first time, if running it via the retail disc.

Played a couple Live games last night and some RTTS.  There's a definite improvement in animations, improved visuals (though not drastic) and other than that, it's The Show.  Stadium models are awesome, at least the ones I saw.  Same options for pitching or hitting, customizable camera views.  I thought the play-by-play got more repetitive than last year's so I don't know if they didn't prepare as many lines, or what. 

It does play a great of baseball. The physics definitely feel right - the hits, the fouls, the plays and base running.  I'm having a heck of a time getting throws across the diamond in time to get runners so there's something different about the fielder throwing.  Also saw some plays in the minors that should probably have been errors that were scored errors - but also saw lots of errors, too - so maybe the official scorer just sucks in some stadiums.  Also noticed more variation in the umpires - some miss obvious calls - others will miss a call but then give you a make-up call on the next pitch - you definitely have to pitch to their strike zone.

Those who play it - which pitching method do you prefer?  Pulse? Meter? 

Great game. Haven't tried the cross-play on Vita yet.

I can't get the hang of pulse pitching at all. I still haven't decided if I like meter or classic better. For now I'm using classic though.

I'm downloading it as I type. The game requires 40 gigs though, so I have very little hope of actually playing it today. Although the initial download is only 5 gigs, so hopefully that 5 gigs includes the Road to the Show or Franchise Mode at the least.

Bound By Flame for me but I'm waiting for reviews. I'm sure The Show is great but I'm just not enough of a baseball fan to plunk $60 on it.

I haven't watched a game of Baseball in over a year, but I freaking love the Show. Allegedly they also added a feature this year where you can play a complete game in 20 minutes, which means I may make it through several seasons this year. My personal best is 4 complete seasons with The Show 2010. I will probably also start a season and stop after the first season so I can carry that team over to next years game.

SO back on topic I will be getting The Show. I also ruined my Vita last week so I'm thinking about picking up the Vita Borderlands bundle as well.

1.70 is now available, and the hunt for hidden changes begins. People are reporting vastly improved response times in the UI, and particularly in the PS Store.

Pre-loading games is big, so is being able to control the brightness on the controller LED. I don't care about all the new steaming and video recording stuff... what portion of PS4 users does that even affect, less than 5%?

It indirectly affects everyone. Any time you watch someone stream a PS4-game on Twitch or put up PS4 videos on YouTube (unless they've got their own capture card), you'll benefit from these updates. Since the streams are now shown in the activity view, they're also becoming a more prominent part of the console.

I mean I don't do any of those things, so *everyone* is a bit of a stretch.

Okay, "everyone" then. I suspect most people who have a PS4 at this point in time also view gaming-related YouTube videos from time to time, or watch gaming streams (an increasingly popular activity, apparently).


I don't.

Me either. Not even sure how you go about doing this.

Ratings-wise, imho it was a mistake to counter-program an old ratings warhorse like NCIS. I don't see Agents ever having strong ratings against it. Not even if they turn Coulson into Thanos, Maria Hill into a strip tease dancer, Sky into a virtual prostitute and Ward into a robot Nazi.  retard So my theory is find a time slot where fans can find it but where it won't get pummeled into the ratings by a top-5 show that has built up a huge audience over many seasons.

My gut feeling is ABC/Disney will renew the show so as to not tick off Joss Whedon by firing his brother and sister-in-law. And perhaps they think if the show survives long enough, maybe Whedon will get more directly involved in the show once Avengers: Age of Ultron's released (almost exactly 1 year from now - May 1, 2015).

I bet Josh wants the show around until Avengers 2 comes out for story telling purposes. So he may have more invested in the show than just his relatives.

I don't think either side of the political spectrum can claim the high ground on the issue of domestic espionage any more.  I've been really vocal about about tearing down the "Both Sides Do It" false equivalences we see so often in American politics, but casual erosion of personal privacy rights is something the Democratic and Republican parties both own.

And that's the problem: as a liberal who absolutely abhors this easy-access data mining of innocent civilians, who can I vote for to roll back these powers?  Chris Christie?  Hillary Clinton?  Jeb Bush or Joe Biden?  The only political figure I can even imagine abandoning these tactics is Elizabeth Warren, and there's zero indication she's planning a presidential run.

I'm not a single-issue voter, but all other things being equal, I would vote for any candidate who vowed to curtail these domestic spying programs.  It's right up there with their failure to improve the VA system on my list of the Obama administration's biggest failures.

Way, way too early in the generation to start predicting winners and losers, anyhow.

We don't have a complete picture until we get the 360 data. Why would Titanfall create a substantial demand for XB1s with a comparable 360 version around the corner? It doesn't make sense to me.

I agree. I don't own an Xboxone, but I still have two other platforms I could play Titanfall on. The game doesn't interest me, but even if it did I don't need a Bone to play it.
