I don’t play mobile games, and the game’s name bothers the hell out of me, but CNet is saying Modern Combat 5 is…not horrible. Actually said it’s the best mobile shooter available. I don’t know if that’s actually saying much, because I’ve never tried any, but I just assumed it would be a garbage cash-in. They did note the fact that you cannot play offline as a strike against it.
I’m not a doctor, but I am a medic, and my advice is sleep less and eat worse. YOLO!
The PS+ was indeed 2K14 (PS3). I can only speak for the XB1 version, but I’m pretty sure the same modes are in both. I don’t even watch basketball, and when I play I generally just rebound and occasionally get easy lay-ups. I strongly recommend going straight to the MyPlayer and making a point guard. It starts a little slow as you’ll only get 4 or 5 minutes per game, but once you start earning upgrades and learning how to not suck, it becomes quite fun.
He’ll sleep when he’s dead.
I understand the toddler argument, but Cart-Man would never assault…er…apprehend someone who did that.
There is an executive producer at 343 Industries named Kiki Wolfkill. Wolf. Kill. Badass.
And it’s EMPTY!! They just pushed the thing all over the
#$* store filling it up with heavy stuff, pushed that heavy-stuff-filled-cart to their car, emptied the heavy stuff, and said "My work here is done."
Maybe he meant North ’Merica.
Looks like I might have to start being nicer to people.
If I could be a superhero, I would be Cart-Man. I would hang around in the shadows at big box store parking lots, silent and invisible. Waiting—lurking, even. Looking for my archenemy—that dick who doesn’t put his cart back in the cart return, which is ALWAYS CLEARLY LABLED. Then I would swoop in and beat them with their abandoned cart. Because without rules we are nothing.
I’m not a fan of hackers, and I don’t know how to hack, but we need a hero to start Denial of Service attacks on all those bullshit work at home sites these guys hype up.
If I get to shoot Shia LaBeouf in the face, I’m in.
We need to add a “No Shit” tag to this article :)
Good morning, everyone. I played a few games of NBA2K14 last night (gotta level up my boy, Dick Brown). I really think it’s interesting how well 2K implemented their MyPlayer mode. Very RPG-like with its leveling, and never frustrating enough to force the available microtransactions, at least for me. Anyhow, it’s almost August and this is two years in a row where I spent my summer out of the country. Next year I’m going to the beach.
The jury’s still out on this Access thing. Chris wrote a well-reasoned piece arguing that it doesn’t go far enough to be comparable to Netflix, but it’s also $30 per year as opposed to ~$100. I enjoy having sports games around (mostly for the occasional couch co-op), but I’ll need more information as to how many games they plan on offering and whether or not they will “retire” games. I’d hate to pay the subscription fee only to have the games I was interested in disappear a few months later.
I don’t remember which, but one of the SQ games had a level where you rode some hovercraft from behind…so many memories…
I was going to pick up ’14 on the cheap, so count me in
I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but Gods Will Be Watching is what the ancient Greeks told their kids to keep them from masturbating
Is that ’That’s what she said’ bait?
It means his name is DOUG, he’s 5’2, and really enjoys games
I have a 65 inch Mitsubishi DLP at the beach, on the third floor. You’d need three people to steal that thing.
I’ve read some impressions on Cnet and the guy said he couldn’t really tell the difference, which isn’t really a ringing endorsement to go out and “upgrade”.
I have a ton of price drop targets as well. As excited as I am for Witcher, Dragon Age (maybe), AC, Alien, and Mordor, those seem like the type of games that hit sales hard in their first month and then trail off as they don’t have the long-term multiplayer legs that keep a lot of competitive shooters at full retail for quite a while. Same with Lords of the Fallen. I’ll probably pick some of these up when they’re 30 bucks or so.
My oven broke, and I was able to find a replacement part for 20 bucks instead of buying a new oven. I wouldn’t have been able to do that before the interwebs.
Amazon’s so great for media purchases. They even seem to adjust pricing to compete with digital sales, at least in the case of XB1 games. It’s the only place I “buy” music anymore, also. I subscribe to Xbox music for all my streaming, but every so often Amazon will have an awesome album for 5 dollars.
Agreed. There are sooo many custom game types too that I can’t wait to play again. Grifball, Rocket Races, etc. Also on COD—my bro and I only spent five or ten hours playing Ghosts before we just gave up on it. We found that Titanfall and Battlefield 4 scratched whatever itch COD used to scratch. It’s also one of those games that for certain gamers is the only game they play, so if you want to be decent online you have to play a lot and keep practicing. I prefer to jump in and out of games for an hour here or there, which is why I love Titanfall. Lots of people commented on how they got over it after a while, but that’s why I enjoy it. I can play two or three matches and get my fill, then come back a day or two later. I could totally see myself getting lost for hours in Halo though, as there are 100 maps and so many game types.
