I noticed he likes stuff that he likes too.

Yes, nobody cares for Infamous: Second Son

http://www.mcvuk.com...t-of-us/0129226

"We have high expectations for Infamous: Second Son and are excited by the level of pre-orders which are exceeding that of The Last of Us at this point in the run up to its launch,” said SCE UK product manager Josh Walker.


Wasn't that the same country that said Tearaway had more pre-orders than The Last of Us? Without numbers, this statement is meaningless, but Kudos on Sony for getting all the sites to report on it.

Pretty sure that each Infamous game has sold between 1-2 million sales each as well. Not to mention the same was said about Killzone that has since reached over 2 million sales with Shadow Fall. I wonder what sales numbers have to be for a franchise to be considered "strong"?


Infamous is in the same sales range as Crackdown. It's not a franchise that challenges the sales of the major third-person action franchises it is in competition with: ie Assassin's Creed. They are fun games, but they aren't defining enough to make someone choose one platform over the other.

I'm really surprised that Xbone still hasn't announced any exclusive games. The only thing that comes to mind is how they bought the gears of war franchise but i never wanted to play any of those anyways. So they pretty much have gears and halo but thats it. Titanfall you can just play on pc. I still stand behind the idea that the software sells the hardware and we will see that with the WiiU this year if I am correct.


Xbox One has announced/has several exclusive games so I don't understand your point. Maybe you mean no exclusives that interest you?

Halo, Gears, Quantum Break, Kinect Sports, D4, Sunset Overdrive are all upcoming off the top of my head.

The WiiU is beyond saving.

There's no telling how big the consumer base is that wants to play PlayStation 3 games, but didn't want to buy a PS3 for the past 7 years, but wants to buy a $400 PS4 and subscribe to a service.

I'm not saying those people don't exist or are wrong, I just think it's chasing a market that's pretty small.

BlueRock, I don't disagree with anything you say there. I don't think there is a heat issue at this point, it just makes more sense to me to eliminate the possibility by making that power supply external. I see the size and feel the heat. That's all.

Since Shipwreck says he's always right, will Shipwreck take a run for Pachter's money?

 

Just kidding...

 

As Engineer myself I don't see a problem with having a power supply inside the machine, TVs have them inside and they work just fine even with those bright screens generating extra heat and Smart TVs have processors as well... The Steam Machines may have the power supply inside as well...

 

Have you seen the Xbone vs PS4 size comparison? Thoughts?

I think they will both fit fine under my TV.




#11184224 CAGcast #342: is Not PS4 Compatible

Posted by shipwreck on 02 November 2013 - 01:18 AM

What exactly? Why?


The art style does not appeal to me and the voice acting and dialogue in the videos I've seen make me think I will not enjoy the story. The gameplay does remind me a little of Kameo mixed with Ratchet & Clank, but I have played a lot of these kinds of games and this one just looks like I could pass.

I also don't understand why Shipwreck who pays 300 dollars for a Nvidia shield won't be bothered to buy the biggest gaming release of this generation for 50 dollars. Why are you so adamant in your disdain of GTA? Both Wombat and Cheapy didn't enjoy GTA IV and both of them are now having fun playing GTA V. Can't you put your prejudice for all GTA games aside and just try it out?


It's not a money issue. I didn't enjoy Grand Theft Auto IV. I didn't enjoy L.A. Noire. I didn't enjoy Red Dead Redemption. I didn't enjoy Max Payne 3. How many times do I have to play a game that I don't enjoy?

I mean this with the utmost respect for the lad, but the show is much better without Shipwreck.


Thank you for the respect. That means a lot.

This is the reason for a PS Vita TV is I can plug this into my TV in my bedroom, and remote play my PS4 into my bedroom. This gives me a 2nd PS4 for $100.


By my math, that gives you another way to play the PS4 you have, not a second PS4.

Hey Shipwreck, I was just listening to the latest Giant Bombcast and they spent the first 40 minutes or so just talking about GI Joe, Transformers and baseball cards. I immediately thought you would get a kick out of that combination. They also brought up a critical question...

 

Zartan: Hair or Hood?

 

I need to listen still. Zartan wears a hood in his classic style. Crappy Zartan has a mohawk.

I just have to know how Shipwreck ended up at Memphis. Are you originally from Tn? I always thought Ship was born and raised in OH. Memphis seems like an odd place to go when there so many other options for schools between Ohio and Tn.


Memphis gave me a full academic ride and the opportunity to run on their track and cross country teams. I also wanted to go away from home for school.

I couldn't help but find it amusing when Shipwreck said it would be a three hour podcast if he corrected Wombat all the time, and later on in the same episode, CheapyD reads that comment about Shipwreck being condescending. 
 
I thought Pacific Rim was okay. The attempts at humor didn't do anything for me. I'd probably give Time and Eternity a shot for a low price.


We are here for your amusement.
