Wombat, regarding your complaints about the lack of character persistence in Evolved:

Do you feel this way about all competitive games? In the NBA, should teams be able to unlock perks like smaller hoops or closer 3 point lines? Maybe a soccer player could unlock the ability to use his hands.

Okay, yes, these examples are a bit hyperbolic. However, L4D's longevity came from its versus mode, and the kind of character persistence you desire is terrible for that kind of game. It's fine for a cooperative game like Diablo or something casual like League of Legends or CoD, but not for a game that wants to be a real competition of skill and team work.

Hesitant to buy last-gen games even at good prices, since I think we'll see a fair number ported to current gen.

I'll give it a shot.  Thanks, OP.

How generous of Astro to offer a new product at $110 off. And by generous, I mean what a clever marketing technique.

I'm not interested high-end headphones, but it doesn't seem as cynical as you make it out to be.  Seems kinda cool, actually, if I was a guy who would spend $110 on headphones.


We're launching the Beta Program to give the ASTRO faithful early access to new products months ahead of their retail launch, at a price break that’s pretty hard to beat. All we ask for in return is your feedback. As such, we’ll be setting up an online feedback form that we hope you take the time to tell us what you think. 

Please note, the key disclaimer to this program is that these are PRE-PRODUCTION UNITS – meaning they are 95% of the way towards the final shippable product, but there are still some elements that we're fine tuning. They work awesomely, we wouldn't sell them if they didn't, and to be honest you probably won’t even notice there's anything to fix. But that's the beauty of this program – we'll do what we can to incorporate your feedback into the final stage of development before launching at retail later this year. It's your chance to be part of the ASTRO Product Development process, and to get a screaming deal on an awesome new product ahead of everyone else.

Decided to bite on this in prep for Bravely Default.  I don't care about the increased screen size so much, but the original 3DS cramps my hands.  That doesn't happen with a Circle Pad Pro, so hopefully the bigger system will fix the problem, too.
