they did learn from prior receptions.

And it just occurred to me--they didn't show a single sports game, did they?

Apart from Madden and NBA2K they don't have any.


They were tight with EA over Fifa, they gave it away free for the Europe launch.

Yeah I over simplified it, between EA and 2K there are plenty of sports game for the Bone. Madden, NHL, Fifa, NBA Live (cough), NBA 2K. I just wish there was more competition in the sports game market.

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. Fable looked like it could be good, but that's the type of game I will wait for reviews on.

I'm surprised there wan't a Gears game announced.

two things I want

1. A Sony exclusive that hasn't been officially announced yet that will also release this year. (Ratchet & Clank on the PS4 would be killer)

2. The WiiU to drop about $100 in price.

Very tempted to finally buy Stick of Truth, but holding out hope of a next gen announcement at E3.

Hopefully, we'll know about it before this sale is over.

Do these last a week?

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

This is a good EddieA post.  A great EddieA post would point out which games should not be missed at those prices.  Help a brother out.  Go for greatness.

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 may get wolfenstein, but I don't see myself getting it at full price.

If you're the type of FPS player like me then Wolfenstein is fantastic. I'm not into multiplayer at all. Give me a shooter with a good story and great gameplay and I'm all over it. Wolfenstein is a really well built single player experience.

I'm on the other end. They are basically paperweights at this point. I've gotten some recent mileage out of The Show but for whatever reason Infamous 2 didn't suck me in and my Xbox One hasn't been turned on in probably three months.

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.

I'm loving the Indie support for this gen. So many games to play in between the big AAA releases.

We're still here, but some of us are also there, then again some are never there and always here. Ceekay is MIA, but others aren't.

I find it odd how some old school GGers only post on OO or only on GT. How did they decide which one to post on? I do both, but I think I'm more active here. Mostly because this site has a lot more console game threads.

Also, I love me a good Drazzil thread so post away man.

I just ordered this over Watch Dogs. I love a well constructed FPS but we don't get many of those. The last FPS I really enjoyed was Metro Last Light, so hopefully Wolfenstein is just as good.

I went on a Scott Adkins movie watching marathon over the weekend. After watching the entirely awesome  Ninja II I fired up Universal Soldier Day of Reckoning I didn't think there was a chance in hell that the movie would be good, but I was wrong. The first 30 minutes is a bit formulaic but once the movie gets going it is non-stop action. Adkins carries the movie and near the end he goes absolutely nuts, big thumbs up if you like violent action movies. Then I watched Assassination Games, with Adkins and Van Damme. It was decent but the action wasn't anywhere near as good as Ninja II and Universal Soldier, it's still worth a watch though.

So, Scraper, is there any chance that the tree that fell indirectly led the lightning hitting your house?  I have to feel that the tree would have taken the strike and saved your house. 

No, I have a lot of big trees in my back yard all within 50 feet of the house. The tree that fell had 3 other big trees within 20 feet of its base. That Thor picture isn't too far off, accept the lightening strike was much closer to my house and there aren't any other houses near mine.

Anything we can do to help dude?

No, thanks for asking though. I was mostly venting when I first posted this. Still down a PS4, I had to take it to Best Buy to have them verify that it was broken and couldn't be fixed. Sure enough they said it would cost more to try and fix it than it's worth. So now my insurance has to replace it. Not sure when the check will come. Until then I'm down most of my electronic equipment. The one saving grace in all of this is that the PS3 is still working perfectly so I will work on my PS3 backlog until the check comes in.

I'll choose to believe that this creates a niche in the market that somebody may try to exploit.  Kinect owners will be looking for anything to play using their device and maybe that allows for a bit more sell though on a game owners may not usually buy.  A developer could try and capture that market with something/anything, could go either way though if crappy trash games are put out instead of quality Kinect titles.  I will hold out hope for a good fitness program, what I would really like is one that has streching and flexing as part of the program sorta like Fitness Evolved but better intergrated.

I agree with YellowKing that MS is trying to change with the market and listening to its customer/potential customer base, can't be all bad.

The fitness potential is there with the Kinect. All it would take is one really good game/program and I would be sold. As it is I'm not going to pay $125 for P90X/whatever program you choose, plus the $499 for the XBO just to use the Kinect with my workouts. Make the program competitive with P90X, make it a $60 game, and make full use of Kinect, then release a new version of the program/game every year or so and I am sold.

The insurance company said they could hire someone to cut it up or they would pay me for my time to do it. I immediately said I would do it.

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.

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.
