Downloading the trial for State of Decay.  Seems interesting, but impressions say it's kind of janky.

 

One thing I don't think I appreciate enough about the Xbox 360 is how it brought a standardized controller for PC games to support.  It's so good not having to deal with button mappings for games, everything "just works" with a wired 360 controller (or a DS3 which emulates a 360 controller).

Success: planted a box of trees stark-ass naked. There were many bugs and I am slightly itchy but on my way to a place with fewer bugs. Waiting in a hotel room while the camp is prepared. All the locals stare at us.

Tekken Revolution was announced, free to play, PS3 exclusive. Available in 3 days.

Catching up with this thread and the end of the last one:

 

Frosty, I'm sure there will be someway for Gamestop and other "participating retailers" to deactivate Xbone game licenses and make it new and able to be resold.  I mean they're not just going to give customers store credit for trading in a game if they can't resell it for a profit.

 

Still sucks balls for us as we'll only have shitty, low value trade ins as a way to ditch games since we can no longer sell them ourselves on ebay, Amazon, Craigslist.  Guess we could still trade on a site like CAG--but only to members who've been on our friends list 30+ days, and it could only be traded once (so the recipient is stuck with it, and we're stuck with ones we get in trades).

 

Big pile of meh.  I just really can't see talking myself into being ok with that since I don't replay or collect games.  I really hope Sony doesn't do/allow something similar.

 

Only thing that can make it ok for me is if the digital game prices eventually get to something like the Steam model--and I don't see that happening due to publisher greed.  If I'm never paying more than $40 for a game, and it's digital so I'm not stuck with a disc, I don't mind not being able to resell games.  So I guess if Sony has something similar I'll just wait 2-3+ years and buy once prices have dropped.  If Sony doesn't allow any of these types of restrictions on the PS4, I'll buy one at launch to support them for telling the publishers to Fuck off and use their own online passes if they want to block used sales.  That doesn't bother me as I haven't had any problems selling games that have online passes on Amazon.

 

 

 

As for Animal Crossing, I've never played a game in the series but I added funds to my eshop account to buy the new one tonight or tomorrow.  Seems like a fun, relaxing diversion.  Opted for digital as I figure after the first week I'll probably just check in a few minutes here and there and it's easier to just have it installed than be constantly switching game cards from whatever I'm playing more seriously at the time.

I don't wanna quote stuff so I'm just going to post :D

 

The new Wii U Sonic looks good and I look forward to running around at the speed of sound with mah Sonic Boom

 

I enjoy the Tales games, I have Xillia preordered but I still need to beat Graces :/

 

That free Tekken thing is probably not going to be worth it if I already play TTT2 normally since they're just gonna charge for everything like with the DOA5 free thing that's happening

 

I'm also looking forward to Animal Crossing but I ordered it through NewEgg so I'm not going to have it for a few days

 

Lastly, I'm trying to figure out my schedule so I can just spend all of Monday and Tuesday watching the E3 stuff :D

Does Hayter voice Sonic? No? Fail.

Beat Dead Space 1 last nite. Not as good as I wanted it to be, but not bad. Gonna start up DS 2 tonite.

Finally did some reading up on some of the latest Xbone news. I do agree and also have a feeling hackers are gonna have it cracked open in a few months. People like that love these sort of challenges, and are already pissed at M$ anyway. We will probably be seeing jailbroke Xbones on Craigslist by next holiday, if not sooner.

I'm gettin' dat Xillia Collector's box yo.

 

I have Abyss on 3DS.

 

Gonna get Animal Crossing on Monday or Tuesday I think.

 

I also need to grab Persona Golden sometime.  My Vita needs lovin'.

 

Really hoping for a Wii U price cut or at minimum some higher value bundle.

 

I am also really hoping there's some way to add additional tablet controllers as my kids would tear each other apart over who would get to use that versus the regular vanilla controllers.  What a stupid freakin' idea to make a single tablet controller for a console directed at families....

Only the regular version of Xillia, I didn't really care much for the figure and while the artbook would have been nice both of the editions come with some form of CD now so I figured the standard was good enough.

 

I also only bought the game for Animal Crossing, wasn't a huge fan of how the AC system looked and am happy with the 3DS I have now already.

Think the Steam model is good and you're okay with owning something digitally forever because the price is low?

Put your $400 toward a gaming PC.  It's upgradeable, everything is free in terms of online service, the deals make up for what you'll spend upfront.  You can play with console controllers in most games.  The more you think about it the more you know it makes a lot of sense. 8-)

My main hesitations are:

 

1.  Still tricky to buy a PC that fits and blends into my TV stand.  Not a lot of shelf space, and I don't want one on the floor next to it.  I'm very OCD about how things look in my house.  I'm also not clear on how/whether they work in terms of needing/not needing a wireless keyboard and mouse ever as I don't really want to have to find a place to stash those.

 

2.  Most of my favorite games are console exclusives still.  I'd miss out on stuff like Gears (only the first went to PC), Uncharted, Last of Us etc. etc. if I didn't have a console.  Where as I can play those and the stuff that goes PC like Skyrim, Bioshock etc. on consoles and don't really miss much as most PC exclusives are MMOs or RTS games or Sim games that I don't play anyway.

 

The Steam pricing system is awesome though.  If they made a Steambox console that was reasonably priced I may got that route and just deal with missing the exclusives.

 

Really though, I just hope you end up being right about the PS4 not having restrictive DRM and I can just pick that up.

Yeah, I'd pick one up eventually, especially if the starting price is $400 or less.

Probably I'd wait to finish out my backlog on PS3 and then move after a price drop/revision, for sure.  I mean how else am I going to play fighting games with the GGT? ;)

 

As for Gears?  Unless MS changes their policy or you concede to be abused by their DRM, you won't be playing any more Gears games already.  Yes, you'll miss out on Uncharted, or whatever Sony exclusives you might want to play, but you missed out on most of those without knowing what you were missing until your 360 mishap and adoption of a PS3.  I'm not saying never get a PS4, just maybe consider PC as another option.

 

Yes, you'd need to have a keyboard or mouse of some sort -- but if you did it right, you could just use your iPad to launch most games once your PC is built.  I fully plan on controlling my gaming PC by the netbook that sits here with me most of the time and getting a wireless/keyboard mouse for games that are better off being controlled by those. :)

Yeah but I'm not completely housebound just my work won't let me work with a boot on. But yeah I've beaten more games in the last two weeks than I have all year.

It is kind of funny how both Sony's and Microsoft's next gen consoles are using standard PC architecture too, so I would hope that would mean it should be a lot easier to port games to the PC.

Japanese games barely exist on PC. Sure Japanese developers may have faltered a bit this generation but they still make most of my favorites.

Japanese games barely exist on PC. Sure Japanese developers may have faltered a bit this generation but they still make most of my favorites.

 

Square Enix has seen the light and been porting a lot.  Capcom has been doing day and date with the PC version it seems starting this year (Revelations/DmC/Remember Me).  Konami is now porting games (Revengeance, Lords of Shadow)... so we're getting there.  Will you see Namco Bandai or Tecmo Koei stuff on PC?  Hard to say, but with the new generation's architecture (see below) they'd be kind of stupid not to start if they haven't already.

 

With that said, there's probably some things that will never make it.  So yeah, if you import a lot or whatever, you might need to kneel to the console overlords and maybe even the DRM whims that accompany them.

 

For me?  I have a PS3 and a 360.  I have a Vita and a 3DS.  So far, I'll only be missing on the console exclusive games of the next generation when I go PC and by the time I pick up a PS4, I'm sure I could amass an instant backlog for pennies on the dollar... again, like I said above -- it's not about not getting a PS4 (or an XBone if that's really you're thing).  The idea is about playing the waiting game and playing most of your games for lower prices on a more powerful platform.  Having the ability to do all sorts of mods and stuff too, if that floats your boat -- I know when I install AE on my gaming PC, I'll be finding the mod that swaps Yun and Yang.  There's just so many reasons that validate the PC side of things now that having it as your main and supplementing it with a console for the things you can't get elsewhere makes too much sense (to me at least) to not do it. :P

 

It is kind of funny how both Sony's and Microsoft's next gen consoles are using standard PC architecture too, so I would hope that would mean it should be a lot easier to port games to the PC.

 

 

Exactly.  This has me hopefully that pretty much every non-exclusive will be on PC at some point -- and since MS has GFWL and we're seeing XBL games being ported to PC, hopefully this is a positive trend.  I'll only need a PS4, hopefully, for things like God of War or Uncharted, etc.

Email the moderation team, snake.  Multiple accounts will get you put in the permban list.  You don't want to go there.

 

--

Seems Dark Arisen is $32 on Amazon right now.  That's mighty tempting... I should clean out another game from my backlog though.  Maybe start on Darksiders II or Twisted Metal or Child of Eden or Sengoku Basara.  Either that or maybe I should try to play Peacewalker some more?  Urrgh.

 

Stranger's Wrath HD was cool, btw.  I'd probably give it a 7.5/10.  Solid game, glad I finally played it.  Worked well on Vita for the most part.
