You can create folders on PS3, but not on PS4. Unless they added it recently.

I'm really surprised to hear that Shipwreck enjoyed the "art of video games" exhibit as much as he did. I checked it out in Phoenix a few months ago and was severely disappointed.

Selecting four games to represent each console based on those terrible categories (Target???) led to some really bizarre choices, like LotR: Battle for Middle-Earth 2 representing the Xbox 360. That normally wouldn't be enough to ruin an entire exhibit, except... there was hardly anything else there! There were no interesting examples of how art in video games has evolved, or how games could be considered art.

The fact that the gift shop was filled with stacks of the curator's own book, coupled with a ridiculously high entrance fee, really illuminated what the whole thing was about: some guy making money off his half-assed game collection.

The Toledo Art Museum is free. I enjoyed hearing the short stories about the various games even if some of them weren't blockbusters. The four categories have structure to the exhibit even if stuff like LOTR: Whatever was there. It just showed how tactical games weren't a major genre on that generation of consoles. It's a concise look at gaming's evolution over the past 40+ years.

wow I totally notice that too!. The best way I can describe it is Saved by the bell. Cheapyd and Shipwreck act like Zack and Slater and treat wombat like Screech. They love the guy but really never take him serious. Well wombat in a positive note Screech was technically the smartest one he did build a robot after all!


Wait, who's Zack and who's Slater? I just want to get all this straight.

That ios game Ladoliel is probably the dumbest thing I've ever downloaded sober. It's pretty much random. Evil likes kittens? Getouttahere. Leftovers is a cool show but it needs nudity to take it to the next level.


I submit to you Ernst Stavro Blofield, Doctor Claw, and Dr. Evil.

Lots of people watching the transformers movies does not necessarily translate into lots of people watching the original animated program and a desire for a game staring the cast of the original character designs, I wouldn't be surprised if a large cross section of those watching it even knew it was based on/had watched the original run of the animated program.


But the games barely have the movie Transformers in them. These are space Transformers that nod heavily to the G1 designs.
