Maybe there will be actually tombs to raid, instead of just a small cave with an artifact in it. That was the only thing I found wrong with the first one.

Having never played any previous Tomb Raider games, I thought the "tombs" in the newest one were fun and interesting.  I'm really not sure how much better they can be, but would definitely like to see it, if so.  I guess the common complaint I see is that the tombs weren't challenging enough, but I didn't mind that considering i'm not very bright.

Two pickaxes?  That will make for some nice skull crushing finishing moves.

It seems like someone (or a couple of people) predicted both Massive Chalice and Just Cause 2 just a few days ago. I think it's great that Microsoft is giving away Pool Nation FX again.  Since they seem to be currently leading monthly console sales, it's great that new owners will get to see the GWG disappointments right from the start.

 

Also, i'm betting that Microsoft has some freebies to give away around E3 that will make up for PoolNation.

I will never, ever, understand why so many people dislike indie games - or think they are less worthy than 'AAA' titles. Just because a game is developed by a small team doesn't make it any less worthy of playing. For those that do not like a game simply because it is independently developed, please share your rationale with me. I am curious. Let me peek behind the curtain of your opinions.

Even though I am middle-aged, I have no real fondness or nostalgia for retro styled games.  I don't like side-scrolling platformers in most cases, so that rules out a lot of indie games.  I also don't appreciate games that are minimally styled or have simple mechanics.  I like the idea of being enveloped in the graphics, sound, feel and presentation that many AAA games provide.  Basically, I feel like indie games are like eating salad at a steakhouse.  Yes, salad can be nice, but I much prefer the AAA presentation and fullness of a sizzling steak and sides.  I suppose if I had more time to play all the AAA games I wanted, I would eventually get bored of them and turn to salad, but for now, I'm happy getting morbidly obese on steak.

Assorted

- Get a minimum of $175 toward a new PS4 when you trade in a working PS3 Slim or Xbox 360 250GB console.

 

Not sure if anyone mentioned it, but Gamestop has PS3 Slims on sale for $120 right now, for whatever that's worth to you.

 

$55 is what it's worth, by the way.  Of course, it may not be worth that much hassle, though.

Can't remember how much it was but the X1 version of Trials with the Season Pass was dirt cheap. Think it was during the Ultimate Games sale. I snapped it up then.

Gamefly just had it for $12.99 but I think the sale ended yesterday.

Woah. ME Trilogy for 4.80. Can someone give me a reason not to buy that?

The only reason would be the possibility of a PS4 Ultimate edition being announced at E3 this year.  Regardless, you can't go wrong for $5.  Just don't don't judge the trilogy based on the first game only since it has some rough edges.

Do the xbox live gift cards expire?  I have credit expiring that i have to use or do you guys have any recommendations on what to splurge on?

I don't know if Xbox gift cards expire, but wouldn't be surprised.  I recommend asking in the Xbox Live forum since they will likely know pretty easily. 

 

FYI, Dell will pricematch, so their crummy prices for many existing games can be pretty decent once you price match. This might be a good way to use up expiring credit. You can price match online chat or over the phone.  I have found the chat is surprisingly efficient and they will let you check out over chat, too.

#12691367 PSN Weekly Deals - 5/26: Deep Silver/Ubisoft/Indie/PS+ Selects Sales ($1...

Posted by WNYX585AM on 14 May 2015 - 11:21 PM

Eh. Sometimes I think they're called "spoilers" just for the way they can turn otherwise rational adults into spoiled brats.

 

They spend so much time nurturing their precious bubble of ignorance, then start pitching tantrums if it ever gets poked, like some shrieking kid stuffing his fingers in his ears.

 

If your world is upended just by learning some plot twist, then -- *spoilers* -- you're a crybaby.

No one is claiming that their world was turn upside down by spoilers.  The simple fact is that there are certain things about any media that it's not polite to blurt out in case others haven't yet experienced it.  Yes, it shouldn't ruin someone's day when they see a spoiler, but there is a common decency that people should have when talking about items like that.

 

I think the real issue here is that the person who gave out the spoilers decided to get defensive and belligerent when people suggested that he shouldn't reveal those spoilers.  Why not be courteous about spoilers and be open-minded enough to understand that other people may care about them even when you may not?  And also, why be a jerk about it when someone asks you not to give out spoilers?

Kinda makes sense, I dont think they want to sell it for $4.99 :)

They've done some pretty crazy gift card deals in the past where many items were essentially free after GC, so it's not unheard of.  You could even make money (in gift cards) with some of the deals.  I remember Minecraft was one of them that you could get for free, but can't recall others.

Hey guess what Darth Vader was Luke's dad.

 

Would you kindly.

 

John G was already dead.

 

Ellie's relationship with Riley was already mentioned in the main game, and it doesn't take a genius to figure out they were more than just friends. Even so, it's so tertiary to the real story that it's hard to consider it an actual spoiler. Even so, it's not my problem if you're taking this long to play THE BEST GAME OF 2013 according to some insane people. At a certain point you should be prepared for spoilers, especially if you admittedly have a large backlog. I'm not going to get mad if someone spoils a game from a year or so ago for me, and it's dumb to think otherwise.

 

Of course, considering this incredibly minor plot point is also probably the only thing of note in the DLC, that should give you an idea of how inessential it is overall. The best thing in it is actually pretty easy to miss, as it's just a small easter egg, but it did remind me of when Naughty Dog made good games.

I think your autocorrect feature misinterpreted the word "sorry" and just inserted a condescending paragraph about how people who don't share your same views are dumb.  Might want to see if there's a software update available for that.

 

Also, no, the relationship complexities were not obvious from the main game.  Sure, you could come up with that as a random theory, but I don't recall the main game having enough detail to come to that conclusion.

I wouldn't recommend it all, even if you really like TLOU. It's really short (about 1.5 hours if you explore a lot) and adds nothing to the story.

This seems weird.  Many people regard Left Behind as one of the better DLC items ever made.  It also fleshes out some back story pretty well.  Am I missing the sarcasm in your post?

Salty, eh? Stop being dramatic. It was a legit gripe. Did I speak on the quality of the deal? Nope. I simply said it's not a deal, period.

Perhaps you don't realize it, but you encourage reactions like that to your comments since it seems like most of your comments come across as negative (or worse) in tone and content.

Disney Infinity 3.0

 

AND, this is the bit I'm most happy about:

 

And, not to worry: All of your existing Disney Infinity 1.0 and 2.0 figures are compatible with this new version. If this is your first time jumping into the action, the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack includes everything you need to start playing, including a figure base, the “Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Play Set,” and Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures.

I don't understand what you're happy about.  Is it the Star Wars theme or the backwards compatibility?  Infinity and Skylanders have always had backwards compatibility on the figures.  Disney's is more nefarious, though, since you can only use the older figures for the Toybox mode and not the main game.  Skylanders lets you use the figures in the main game (although they have little to no Toybox type of mode).

My grandma gave me $100,000 and I bought a Porsche, so I got a free Porsche!  My friend's grandma gave him a $100,000 too, but he just saved the money so he didn't get anything for free.

 

 

Edited to correct the missing zero on my friend's $100,000. :)
