If Jesse wants revenge he should just ingest a shit ton of his next batch.

They're the type of folks that would kill Brock if Jesse committed suicide.

I do wonder how Kinect is going to work in your setup though Hark.

I use Kinect with my current 360, not sure what you mean.  It works fine.

I thought you had your 360 hooked up at your desk.

Let's not forget EA and the like have started loading $60 games with micro transactions as well.  Dead Space 3 for instance  ME3 multiplayer had the gambling real money on packs angle, and nevermind the Fifa nonsense that led to so many xbox accounts getting hacked.

It depends on the monetization.  I spend a lot of time and little money in f2p games these days so it really doesn't bother me though I can see how someone looking for a sprawling single player RPG might be disappointed.  Instead we are getting a co-op dungeon crawler with random loot and dungeons which sounds pretty ok to me.
648  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Deep Down on: September 21, 2013, 03:05:43 AM
So apparently this is going to be free to play.  So that with the random dungeons makes this seem like Dark Souls X Warframe.

I didn't even know the two Star Wars games in the top 10 were released on the PC. But then I'm a Gen Xer too so maybe I'm outside the "our generation" qualification.
Rogue Squadron was not better than Tie Fighter, or heck X-Wing Alliance.  Also if you're going to pick a Rogue Squadron game I'd give it to RS2 for the Hoth sequence alone.

RS2 didn't come out for the PC.  I did have Pod Racer on the PC, RS 1 I had to google to make sure it wasn't a mistake.

Being a PC only list just makes RS over Tie Fighter or X-wing even more inexplicable.

Two 24 hour alerts up right now.  One gets you an Orakin Reactor and the other get you Forma.   The Forma mission was level 60+, think I might wait to do that one with people as opposed to trying to solo it.

I'm not sure I understand the backlash about bad guy characters.  Does this also apply to shows you watch as well?  I enjoy shows that are 'gritty' and show a side of life that I don't ever experience in real life...ditto games (though I've not played the GTA series...).

I'd prefer to play a GTA type game as a goodie two shoes character (Crackdown, for instance), and if I do play a bad guy I'd prefer to play as a complex conflicted bad guy, like Breaking Bad or kinda sorta what they attempted with GTA IV Niko. 

I thought Sleeping Dogs had a great protagonist.

Why wouldn't you just keep playing on PC?  sometimes you make no sense.

Because I have a 55" TV with a kicking surround sound system and I like playing on the couch?   I mean it's not like you buy 360 games of shooters that have a version on the PC....

At least with Warframe it's a shared account and will be crossplay so I could easily alternate.

since I use the same monitor for both my consoles and my pc, I just play on it.  If a game is on console and PC, I typically buy just the 360 version to stem cheating/unfair advantages.  You can always just stream your pc input to your 55" tv and play on your couch right now with a 360 pad if that's your only concern.  Don't need a ps4 for that either.

Not really viable based on the distance from my office to my living room.  Wi-Fi is fine for internet, but it's too far for the 360 controller to work reliably.  I'd need to build a dedicated gaming PC for that room, which I have thought of from time to time.

I believe that between the new Kinect and the integrated TV functionality/voice stuff, that the Xbone will win people over. But it won't be at launch, and it may not be in the first 2-3 years. Consumers are going to have to catch up to the technology. The only way I can see the Xbone being a complete flop is if Microsoft failed to really invest and push those features that differentiate it, and I've never seen Microsoft afraid to throw barrels of money at something they believe in. I believe they do have a solid vision, and one that is cool as hell - they just haven't clearly articulated it.

I feel the TV stuff is 5 years too late.   The general trend is moving further and further away from live TV.   Nevermind DVRs, more and more people are just dumping cable entirely and using only streaming services, especially now where you can buy TV episodes the day after they air.   It doesn't strike me as forward looking at all.

I just hope there's some satire and twisted humor in this.  The original Robocop is one of my favorite movies of all time and the trailer completely lacked those qualities, now to be fair the original Robocop trailer didn't showcase them but then it wasn't a reboot either.   As I said somewhere else, what's next Back to the Future reboot as a sci-fi thriller?  Ghostbusters as a pure horror movie?

Be warned that an image search for Cortana may venture into NSFW territory, and "looking forward to trying it out" definitely has alternate meanings on the internet with regards to naked holographic robots.

Cortana in Halo 4 was already venturing into NSFW territory.

I cancelled my PS4 preorder because the next few months of my life are looking to be mighty expensive, but the more I hear about how well the Oculus Rift is coming along the more I'm thinking that's an even better reason for me to pass on a PS4/Xbone purchase for the time being.  If my next gaming hardware purchase is a Rift and a new PC to support it, I'll be able to play most regular next-gen titles and the hot new VR stuff. 

It's hard to predict the future of course, but I can easily envision being more excited about Rift "exclusives" than I am about PS4 or Xbone exclusives.

Did you miss all the PS4 VR rumors?

If I didn't have a nice gaming PC, I think I'd be giving the technical gap a lot more weight in my decision-making. As it stands, though, buying a PS4 would be essentially buying something I already own. So I'm still comfortable with sticking with the Xbox One pre-order. At this point I want a console that complements the gaming I do on my PC, but doesn't necessarily replace it.

If PS4 does turn out to be all that and a bag of chips, I'll spring for one down the road when my PC starts showing its age.
Again this is so damn weird to me as Xbox has traditionally had far more crossover with the PC than Playstation.  Just look at the two most anticipated games for the consoles coming out.  On the XB1 side, Titan Fall is coming to the PC, and on the Sony side Infamous: Second Son will never come to the PC.

PS4 more powerful, some dev commentary

http://www.edge-online.com/news/power-struggle-the-real-differences-between-ps4-and-xbox-one-performance/

I'm going to take a wild guess that it's EA that would be castrating their PS4 versions to lower them to be on par with XB1 to not offend Microsoft.


It won't be just EA.  I read that piece earlier this morning and it makes sense the multi-platform games will play to the lowest common denominator which would be the limitation of the XB1. 

Eh, they will and they wont.  Over the long haul it will be like looking at a good PC port v a console game.   It's not like all our PC ports are capped at 30FPS and 1280x720.   You'll see those kind of differences show up with the PS4 and XB1 over time, with higher resolutions or framerates, the article even talks about that at the start

Quote
One basic example we were given suggested that without optimisation for either console, a platform-agnostic development build can run at around 30FPS in 1920×1080 on PS4, but it’ll run at “20-something” FPS in 1600×900 on Xbox One. “Xbox One is weaker and it’s a pain to use its ESRAM,” concluded one developer.

This is pretty old news. MS has been going around denying it to anyone who will listen which really makes them sound silly but what else are they going to do? They can't let Sony control the message.

I know, it's been on the forums for a while, but this is a real publication siting conversations with developers which makes it more noteworthy.

Actually I did.  Assuming you want to call one small paragraph an article.  I have no idea how you could assume I didn't read an article about the cost of the PS4 in Argentina based on what I posted.

My post was a joke (however poor) about how people keep criticizing Microsoft despite plenty of poor choices on the other side as well.  Charging over 10% of the average family's yearly income for a console would qualify as that.  The joke is that people will still find bigger things to criticize Microsoft about and ignore this.  Just like ignoring the fact that they're not launching in Japan for their "worldwide release".

But thanks for making your assumptions anyway.

The issue is the economy and inflation in Argentina, it's not Sony being ridiculous.

"There is a flip side though. Nokia and Windows Phone in general had so little mass-deployment that IT administrators could not comment on its reliability for PCMag’s survey"

Even if the remote play functionality doesn't support streaming over the Internet, it would still allow you to set up your PS4 for multiple screens in your own home, which I'm sure would be a selling point for some people.

The intent is clearly over the internet as shown in the newest video where the girl plays Knack in the cafeteria.

Microsoft has reneged on many of the design decisions they made to placate customers. Not sure what punishing them for mistakes they've already corrected really accomplishes.

As far as the commercial goes, it was totally legit. With advertising, your goal is to differentiate yourself from the competition, not show how you're exactly the same.

Keep in mind this was the first commercial.  I think you have a bunch of hard core gamers that are feeling a bit jilted by Microsoft right now as they come to the realization that they are not the most important demographic for MS, which has been demonstrated at pretty much ever step of the way with the the XB1.  If they had done a game focused commercial before this I don't think you'd see nearly as many people upset.
