I really liked Wombat's initial impressions from Halo 4. But I do disagree with him on it missing the development part of the game. To me, keeping Halo the same for the most part is what gets me to come back again and again. I just don't think it would feel like Halo if I can't overcharge a plasma pistol and then headshot an Elite or shoot the hand of a Jackal in order for it to move its shield. Tomb Raider was a very good game, but the entire time I was wondering which weapon was the best to upgrade or which perk would actually be helpful to my play style. Halo does this to some extent by letting you choose your load out with armor ability at certain sections, but the enemies in Halo are what dictate the weapon choice, and if the rocket launcher suddenly becomes not as effective to kill a hunter because I have been using the BR the whole game, it just wouldn't feel right. Maybe they could work development in some way, but the current way the game is where enemies just get more difficult and skill is the only thing that will get you through, is what makes Halo feel right to me.
 

Other than that, really glad to hear Saints Row IV is shaping up to be great. I remember getting the original with Dead Rising at the first possible TRU B2G1 sale, and SR1 was definitely the more played game. It's descent into goofiness has only led to it being more fun, and with no more Radical to make Prototype, I am definitely looking forward to see how the super powers change everything.

 

Also, in for Doodle Jump Kinect-- been playing my Kinect more lately and Doodle Jump would be great if it's anywhere near as addicting as its mobile counterpart.

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

Wombat and Shipwreck! Once you two get Dream Suite built in your Animal Crossing towns, you should give out your Dream Suite address codes (different from friend codes) so that us listeners can check out your towns & houses. 

Also, when you guys talked about new releases, you didn't mention The Walking Dead 400 Days. It came up by surprise, but I hope you guys get to play it before next week's show.

What? Shipwreck comparing Call of Juarez to Bulletstorm?!?! Now I'm intrigued to play it despite hating Bound in Blood. Now I may get it when it's on sale.

 

And agreed on feeling bad for Major Nelson outside of Don Mattrick, he literally was the only face for XBox One and he was the one who immediately had to stomp out fires or do damage control at X1 as best he could because there literally was no other PR person. I Mean it's already been filled to the brim with negativity before the X1 announcement, but after that May press conference...Jesus.

 

Also totally down for Doodlejump on Kinect.

It seems like every podcast since e3 has started out with them complaining about people who complain.  If they want to talk shit about edge magazine, then that's a story.  but just random people on the internet, they got to get over that.

 

As for edge, I took a look at the cover after the show and it doesn't appear that they are saying who is the winner, just what is the best option for "right now."

I would like a Doodle Jump code please:

 

I have a question for cheapy: What is the reasoning behind allowing your son to watch violent movies like Raiders of the Lost Arc and Video Games like Injustice at such a young age (5)? I am not a prude, and i do not think these movies/games have an extreme impact on kids, but I am questioning "why the rush?". Why does your son need to see Raider of the Lost Arc now and not when he's 8 or so?

 

As a father of two, my take has always been. . . let them be kids and watch kid's stuff while they're young. They have a whole lifetime to watch punchy-shooty movies/video games.

Wombat should travel abroad at some point. Might I recommend Sweden. Everyone is really nice, they all speak English, and everyone is beautiful.

 

I'm really excited for SRIV. I'm playing through The Third right now and looking forward to the superpowers!

Thanks for bringing up the topic of not appropriate for kids pictures on the xbox dash.

 

Just so you know, when I put the thing about Major Nelson, I was referencing the post immediately above mine in that thread, here it is:

 

"Hey Microsoft's Larry Hyrb since you're up on CAG, read my post here and tweet this- 

$499 Xbox One + $40 headset - $140 Kinect 2.0 = $399 = Pre-order #satisfiedcustomer"

As a new dad & husband to a woman who doesn't care to listen to me talk to people she's never met before, I'm completely with Wombat on this headset debate. It sounds stupid, but the headset was the reason I bought all of my multi-platform games on the 360... because I became a part of a community on the 360. On PS3 I can see random people on my friends list's tropihes (after syncing) but it means nothing since no one has a mic to talk to. It just doesn't work out well & I foresee a huge drop off in the community feeling of the One if it continues down this "no headset included w/ system" path.

 

As for Saints Row 4... as soon as I heard they were implementing super powers I immediately hoped for something like Crackdown. Next week (if you guys can talk about it) can you detail what kind of super powers you have?  Can you fly? Pick up cars? Super jump? Anything else? If they can combine the humor/story/extras of Saints Row w/ the gameplay of Crackdown... GOTY for the next 3 years...

 

Lastly, you guys were comparing PS+ to Xbox Lives Games for Gold promotion. You have to remember that while PS+ smokes the Xbox promotion that you get to keep your Xbox Live games from this promotion FOREVER. You only get the keep the PS+ games while you are a PS+ subscriber. Thats a pretty big difference to note... Then again, with the crap they are offering, I won't even bother wasting my HDD space on the Xbox games.

Also considering you have to have Xbox Gold to do multiplayer, most people would probably still keep Gold even if they stopped doing free games. Now that multiplayer is behind the pay wall for PS4 perhaps they may let us keep our free games for PS4 without a PS+ subscription.

 

I would say the main reason they are offering such great sale prices now is we are near the end of the console's shelf life and they want to extract as much money as possible before the launch window of the new system. Also another reason is none of this stuff will transfer over to the new system, so like shipwreck said, a lot of people will probably buy it because it is cheap, and then might never play it. Also since it doesn't transfer over, it won't be competing for play time on the new system, if you want to play the new system you have to buy a new game. Having sales such as this right out of the gate will only quicken the race-to-the-bottom of software prices that inevitably happens the longer the console shelf life. It's the same thing which happened with Blu-rays, there was a time when $20 for a movie on sale awhile after release was a great deal, now they have trouble getting people to bite on some $5 older movies.

 

Microsoft has the money to match them on free games, but right now they probably feel like they don't have to, they were so far ahead of Sony for so long, especially in North America. The Hare starts the race far ahead so it becomes lazy and complacent because it figures it is unbeatable. It is only after the Tortoise greatly overtakes the Hare through steady hard work and the Hare's complacency that it panics and gives its all in an effort to catch up. Microsoft almost let it get to that point by waiting 2 weeks after E3 to One-80 on the DRM.
