Life is good, I'm actually in the process of firing up the "how do we do the community thing?" conversation in my new role. I don't see a ton of relevant overlap though as all the stuff I'm working on is App focused now.

 

Cheers
Tony

 

When you do that invite Josh. It appears he may need some help with that. :)

I want 75% off lowest MSRP pricing for the product...

...not be given 75% of the actual product!

We don't play games on CAG; we backlog 'em. ;)

No wonder we have no time to play games!

All we do is keep buying games; run games idly for cards; keep backlogging games; & talk about games on CAG Forums + gaming forums like it.

Also, I wasn't sure what I could and couldn't share earlier so I didn't, 2K came on site today and did a several hour Evolve event including hands on gameplay.

 

If you like multiplayer games you should buy this...twice. I got to play through twice and the game is phenomenal. Let me know if you have any questions, they said I can share anything I saw/heard today (which represents the entirety of my knowledge about the game).

 

I'm a big fan of their previous two games, so Evolve is definitely on my radar. My only question is a subjective one:

 

One of the great things about L4D was the coordination between the special zombies to take down the survivors. Evolve is about a team taking on a single player-controlled monster. Once the "I'm a badass!" feeling wears off... won't it be lonely on the monster "team"? :(

This is totally subjective but it feels like the amount of time it will take to kill the single player will vary greatly from match to match, especially as you start seeing people get a feel for the maps, etc. What I think this will translate into is a fresh feeling experience even if you play the monster regularly.

 

Again, just my 2 cents.

No, but seriously, Randy Pitchford went full on Buffalo Bill/Dahmer on Josh and then fashioned him into a homemade TF2 hat, didn't he?

Tony,

If you can talk about it, with the focus on games and the fire tv bringing an emphasis is it safe to assume there will be a bigger focus on regular android games as well. Maybe even a community manager and fun promotions?

Come check out my tradelist.  It's full of geeky goodness that's not limited to video games.

Most of those gifs don't ever seem to match up to the words they're supposed to be saying, thus they are nearly all annoying.

 

 

 

What a terrible trend. 

You know, I started watching Community, only because someone posted this gif in one of the PC threads.

Only ONE player is a monster in Evolve? Well that just sounds stupid. Lost Planet did it right by having a few monsters of varying strength and size on the monster team.

Yeah they are going with full A symmetric gameplay.  It is a very interesting concept but fully relies on both there being numerous monsters, maps, and different teams of hunters.  If it is only a handful of them then it will lose it's appeal very quickly.  And much like L4D and L4D2 there needs to be mod support to go along with it as well.  One of the main reasons both the L4d games lasted this long is because of the mods and the way the community can change stuff.  So skins and game modes are a must for long lasting game usage.

About Destiny - looks great, but I am waiting 1st for a PC version.

 

This.  If I had $400 burning a hole in my pocket, I wouldn't buy a console -- I'd buy a new video card for my PC.  Destiny won't approach my radar until it approaches my hardware.

 

 

so Tony's back, does that mean kindle fires and fire tvs for everyone?

 

Need a Kindle Fire 75% sale, and soon.  My wife keeps hogging hers, and I never get to use it anymore.

No news is no news.  Either Tony knows something, or he doesn't.  If he knows something, he isn't going to talk about it because he doesn't want to say something that reflects poorly on Amazon.  If he doesn't know what's going on, admitting that fact would open the door for even more speculation in a vacuum, which also doesn't do the Amazon brand any good.

 

Tony is being the Good Corporate Guy by ignoring the elephant in the room.  Sucks for us, but perfectly understandable from his perspective.

What's the CAG word on Destiny? Hype or New Hope? I think I'm going to try and jump in at launch.

I played on the beta, and for me it's definitely just hype. A fairly bland FPS with level-ups. I cancelled my pre-order.
