This is really cool. First live preview I've seen of how Xbox Fitness will work.

Sean T's Insanity!!!

This may have just pushed the Xbone to the top for me.  The wife and I did most of the Insanity program earlier this year and I could see her being all over the Kinect version, not to mention all those other training videos shown in the background at the start of that video. 

The fitness thing is what draws me the most to the xbox.  Liked the video and I hope and expect that the next gen stuff will be able to track floor exercises and won't need a large distance from the tv.  Exciting to see the many workout choices in the menu, hope the cost isn't overwhelming.

The biggest problem with both Music Unlimited and Xbox Music is that they are not Spotify.  Just give me Spotify on consoles ya goofs!

Fat chance of that when neither of them is even offering us the ability to play MP3s... yet. Tongue

Maybe we are talking different things here but the Xbox One can stream MP3's

I'm not up on DLNA and personally never played MP3's on the PS3 or 360.

Hope it is good but I don't want to be spoiled by game play so didn't watch the footage, DR3 is one of my day one titles for Xbox along with Forza.

 I can see where a business might think $1500 is a small expense but isn't that the cost of the license?  Should the Unity License price be bumped to $10,000 and then given away free?  That would make a better story line I guess.

  I also didn't see where developing a game using Unity would lock the developer into a Microsoft only release for the title, is that the case?  If so then I would agree that it isn't the best news but if the developer can also design the same game for the PS4 concurrently then why demean this news?

All of that summary is opinion of a poster on an Xbox forum. Take that for what it's worth, which is not much. I'd prefer to listen to actual journalists or developers....not fanboys from either side.

The irony is strong in this one.

Well, I just cancelled my preorder.  I preorered both after E3 just while I waited to make up my mind.  In the end, I'm going to cancel both and wait a while.

To be honest I feel this is the smart play, both Sony and MS have histories of over promising and under delivering.  Wish I was smart but I am going to keep both on order but the PS4 order is on life support at the moment due to lack of release day games I want to play.

It looks good, you have some glasses that you look at these games through  ninja

Oh, with it being PS4 footage I thought I was supposed to say it looks amazing! Tongue

It just looks very crossgen.

but it IS crossgen, not sure why this is even worth mentioning.  I really doubt anyone thought launch titles (especially those appearing on current gen as well) would be the titles to showcase what the next gen can do.

While the graphics might not be the showcase perhaps dedicated servers would be?  Or are they moving to dedicated servers for the PS3/360 versions as well? 
173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] The Order: 1886 on: October 22, 2013, 09:15:01 PM
I like the look of the game but agree with TiLT, a RPG set in this world would be very cool.  Do we have any RPG's slated for the new generation?  The Witcher 3 is one right? but any others?
174  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Healthcare Exchanges Are Live. How's it Looking For You? on: October 22, 2013, 05:23:10 PM
I agree with your points AA but am concerned that Obamacare will be twisted to allow companies to get out from providing healthcare insurance.  During the 80's and 90's the stock market was all go go go and companies such as the one I work for (Pacific Gas and Electric) actually never had to put money into their pension plans since it was based on company stock and the stock value was rising faster than benefits were being paid out.  When the market slumped in 2000 all of a sudden that was no longer true and many companies were underfunded in the pension plan.  Congress enacted laws designed to protect pension plans by requiring companies to keep the plans fully funded,and the result was companies just deleted pension plans and gave workers small cash balance payouts as compensation.  Companies were using the requirement to fully fund the pension plan as an excuse to remove the plan altogether.

I have no idea if Obamacare will provide for the same sort of she iguanas (hehe I tried spelling shenanigans and got auto correct she iguanas) but recent history has shown that companies surely will try and twist it around to their best profit to cost benefit.

I'm getting system of a down what with the PS'ers shouting from the rooftops that lack of pre-release vids of XBone games is almost certain proof that 1) the games aren't ready, 2) the games are better on the PS system. 

OMG! Infinity Ward showed PS4 footage!  XBone is suxor and Kinect2 worthless hahahahaha!

Oh well I will get both and hope they both are good consoles, maybe that is why I don't feel any need to validate my decision by showing the other choice in a bad light.

I was trying to figure out where to post that.
I really wish 2k would get back access to the NFL license.

Does that video show actual game play?  It seemed more like a reprocessed highlight reel.  Did look good and may be tempted although I'm not a big basketball fan.

Not real sure, burnt out on AC and a barely played ACIII at all.  Not into FIFA, CoD on Xbone if I get it at all, Killzone never looked like something I wanted to play and  I have never played a Lego game.  I guess buy the console and see what games get the best reviews?  Then go that way?  Could cancel the system pre-order and may still do so but there will be games for the PS4 that I will want to play long before any price drop happens and that is the way I'm leaning now.

I like to see people getting excited about a new console but so much of this thread is more along the lines of people getting excited about the possible failures of the console they are not planning to buy and that is decidedly not exciting.  Who here thinks you are going to change someone's mind based on Internet rumors and insider info?  And yet the vitriol is growing faster and faster.  Release dates cannot come fast enough so we can finally separate fact from fiction.

Feeling good about my pre-orders but not so good about this thread.

I am hoping for a overarching plot line as weekly stabbing of walkers gets old for me if the survivors have no plan and no way out.  I'm getting nitpicky as well on stupid things that have no real bearing on the story like why wasn't Herschel the vet looking after the pig and why was the lady from the woods so dirty and yet her tent was spotless?  Small things but probably an indicator that I am losing interest.

How is buying the XBone considered betting on futures and the PS4 not?  Neither has hit the ground yet so I suppose if you are not a betting man then a wait and see attitude would fit best.

Sounds like you need to buy a XB1 instead of a PS4, guaranteed to have games uglier and more gritty smile, just kidding!  I know what you are saying in regards to the look of the actors in a series but for me I guess I was expecting it and did not take away from the enjoyment of the show.  What did jar me a bit was the car at the end of the episode and the "bus".  Seems to me if you have secret tech then why are you flaunting it around in public?  Small thing that tickled the brain though.

I'm going to continue watching the show but I've already written off several other new shows such as Mom (terrible Chuck Lorre show yet again) and Micheal J Fox show (seems very cookie cutter of a show).  Sleepy Hollow is on the bubble.

C) a sucker for new-shiny

I wouldn't touch either console till next year.

I'm b & c and I'm still not touching the PS4 for at least a year, they're just not offering anything to entice me right now.  if they had made Second Son, Deep Down (well, Deep Down when we thought it might be a new Dragon's Dogma) and a third game that impressed me launch titles I'd still have my PS4 pre-order, but maybe next year there will be 2 more must haves for me that are exclusives.  They have to be exclusives though, no practical point in dropping $400 for a system if I can already play a game on a system I already have.

I like the shiny shiny as well and I figure that each console will release an exclusive game I want to play way before a price drop for the systems so why not jump in on day one if the money isn't an issue.

If there was ever a show where you are required to suspend belief, this is it.  I dont mean that in a bad way either.  The whole plot and concept is so over the top, that you just have to accept it and roll with it.  The good thing is, going the way they did, they have a vast wealth of mythology to draw from.  The show is driven by the people who ran Fringe ( which I really liked a lot ) so I think they will be able to make this work.  Its looking like its going to be a fun show to watch. 

Yeah that was my take as well.  I couldn't figure out if the main lead was a Lt for a small town police dept or part of some large police force in a big city, nothing made sense on that level.  I enjoyed it and hope it does well.

Hard fought game in SF. Clay Matthews is a great LB, but he's Harbaugh's an ass. That's all I gotta say about that.


At least Harbaugh doesn't intentionally try to injure the QB of the other team with a dirty, laaaaaaaaaaaaaaate hit.  If Rodgers got hit as late as Kaepernick did, the league office would have exploded.  

Please tell me you don't honestly think that is true. It's a late hit, which Matthews even owned up to after the game, but intentionally trying to injure? Come on now.

I am abig 49'er fan and I didn't think the late hit was that big a deal.  Worthy of a 15 yard penalty for sure but not seeing any intent to harm Kap who had one foot out of bounds when hit.  I think in past seasons before the quarterback became untouchable that no flag would have been thrown, or if say that was a running back Matthews hit, again maybe no flag. 

Adding to that, I wonder if the Packers had gotten psyched up to lay a beating on Kap after what happened in last years playoff game and all day long the 49'ers did not allow them to get shots at him but finally Matthews had his chance and took it.

Okay, really depends on how this upcoming colonoscopy goes on the 17th.   Iíve been having upper and lower GI issues for years, but lately things have been worse. 

Which prep are you using, Soulchilde? If they want you using GoLYTELY, ask for other options. That stuff will make your year feel considerably worse. Had my 2nd one earlier this year, and the prep was so much easier, but can't remember the name. You may have to be more for an alt prep, depending on your insurance, but worth every penny if you can swing it. The stuff you had to drink was a much smaller quantity, and was more gentle. You still have to drink a fair bit of liquid with it, but can drink almost anything you want. Overall volume is less and you aren't trying to gag down a gallon of that swill.

Back on topic, this year has been much better than last, which was pretty miserable for most of it.

I want to say the stuff I used was called Movieprep or close to that, it's been a few years.

This year same as last year.  Steady as she goes.  Get back to me in two years, I expect changes then.
