 De-loused in the Comatorium was a pretty solid 2003 rock album

 

 

I'd put it up there with the album of 2003, got Rick Rubin to produce it coming off their At-the-drive-In band, Storm Thorgerson did the cover of Pink Floyd fame. That was probably one of the last full albums before everything went to singles. Weird thing while I like the album I think the break up did everyone well. I think Jim Ward going and making Sparta was a great move. He's done some fantastic stuff also. Cedric and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, still kind of trying to figure it out. Even though the latter is definitely one of those virtuoso guitar players

I really think that the more expensive models will have disc drives and backwards compatibility, and the cheaper (most likely disc-free versions) will have no backwards compatibility to speak of.

Considering they're engineering everything with backwards compatibility in mind from the start and Game Pass being so intricate to their offerings and more then likely sharing similar offerings with the One with Game Pass, that doesn't make allot of sense.

GamePass is fantastic and a huge deal for me. Buy far fewer games now and I really do see it as a system seller.

I've been saying this too, it's Microsoft's Ace in the hole.  It is was PS+ was for Sony coming into this generation.

I think it would be a genius move on MS' part to include 3 months of GPU with every console, but we'll see what they decide to bundle.

If they really want to "win" this holiday season, either Sony or Microsoft need to offer a console that is either the same price as the Switch, or that comes packed in with a game. I'm much more likely to be enticed to buy a console if it comes with a game packed in. And, I know that most parents would be more likely to buy a console that has a game that their kids can play, right out of the box, after four or five hours of patches and updates.

What about a console that plays all of the games you can play currently, plus any future games?  Plus, with the right sub (which SHOULD be included in the box), you can play all first party titles on day one for free.

Never heard of Peter Gabriel? Is this some kind of Millennial conspiracy to wipe the world clean of good 80s music? WTF?!?

Lol, you don't get it.

i know how conversion works, i've lived in 3 countries, but do you know the value of $90 canadian in Canada?

 

The real question is how many burgers does $90 canadian buy you. This is the real test of buying power.

If you need a $10/hr raise to pay for a raise in video game prices then you have problems way bigger than video games going up in price. A 10 cent an hour increase would get you an extra $200 a year (assuming 40h/wk) which would easily pay for the $10 difference on the handful of games that are worth buying at launch each year.

 

Also, if we're going by inflation, games should be closer to $80 than $70 by now.

I was speaking towards the disparity between the steep incline of inflation and the meager gains in salary that the economy of the last two decades has allowed many employers to give.  This doesn't equate to an inability to pay $70 for a game.  Its a general lack of desire to pay more for yet another thing, especially when in most cases games end up not worth the initial asking price to begin with.

 

Also why are you trying to justify a price increase to a community dedicated to being cheap?

As sad as it might be, a huge additional BC announcement at this months show would be the highlight for me regardless of what else they show. It would make me buy the series X day one.

BC announcement would do nothing for me. I barely have time to play my current gen games. I have zero interest in old games with potato graphics. I want the new systems to have new games. Give me new experiences. No old enhanced ones.

Decided to try out Saints Row 4 on the Xbox 360. Playing it on the easiest setting. Fun so far! 

I used to feel bad about playing games on the easiest setting.  Then I turned 40.  :oldman:

The Messenger is up! Have to install it on your console though as it’s not showing GP on the web.

Downloading...

Observation and Streets of Rogue also live.
