I’m a mental health counselor in Boulder, Colorado. I live with my beautiful fiancé. I love to hike, watch movies, read comics, and of course, play video games.
You mean Darth Maul? Eh, he’s not so scary…
True story though: Because that guy looks so much like Maul I actually laughed when they first showed his face.
Imagine a late night, the lights are off and you are home alone playing games. Randomly Kinect asks in its unassuming robotic voice “Hello there, are you new? I don’t recognize you.” You look around and there is nobody else in the room. A chill runs down your spine, and nearby a door slowly creeks closed.
Paranormal Activity 6.
At first I didn’t mind the whole always watching Kinect thing. If someone wants to watch me sit motionless in my living room for hours on end, I feel sorry for them. But this is aggressively invasive, and I don’t like it one bit.
Welp, good game humans.
Please be excited!
Yeah my first thought was “You aren’t going to sell many PS4s with that attitude.”
Its not like Activision is strapped for cash… I’m sure they are spending PLENTY on the game play.
I know. Usually pre-rendered trailers don’t get me that excited, but the world they’ve built just looks so damn cool. I want to get in it!
Awwwww yeah! That just got me pumped.
I don’t blame him for leaving. The Japan branch blames the NA branch for its financial shortfall, when we all know its the other way around. I say good for him. Find a job where you are appreciated.
Did you get a new gig as a MS exec Shaun? That sounds like a canned tease response if I’ve ever heard one.
Yeah that Rare tile is really intriguing. I hadn’t noticed this, thanks for pointing that out.
Also I just finished Fable: The Journey, and the way that ended, I’m itching something fierce for a new Fable game. Lets hope that is, in fact, a new one.
I also don’t have cable. I just watch local channels, but mostly use Netflix for watching media. We’ve been talking about getting cable, but we really feel we just won’t use it. We mostly play games or watch movies, so all of this channel features nonsense is totally wasted.
I’ll likely get an X1 for the exclusives, but use PS4 as my main console. X1 may just become my Netflix/Blu Ray machine (which my PS3 currently holds the title).
I was going to comment something similar as well. It’s been out on WP8 for like a month.
I can see this as a viable option. I guess what it boils down to is I don’t like messing around with system settings and optimization. I like to put a game in, and know that its going to be set to work as I want it to. I don’t have to mess with drivers or resolution settings, or shaders or any of that stuff. I like to just put the game in and go.
But as I said above, I do a lot of PC gaming, just more on the side of adventure/puzzle games, and also MMOs. If it is an action game, its something exclusive like Tribes: Ascension.
I play a lot of PC games, but only “exclusives”. Games like Star Craft 2, Diablo, and other indie games on Steam or wherever. The games I like to play on PC, ironically, wouldn’t work well with a controller. I like a lot of point and click stuff on PCs. Adventure games and puzzle games.
I have a PC that I built. I don’t enjoy PC gaming. I prefer a console experience on my couch.
Thinking about this more the solution is choosing a “home console.” A console that is associated as your main Xbox. Should a game be linked to an account on that Xbox, so long as its being played on that console, all other accounts with that console as their home account should have access to it.
I hope it works like that at least.
I totally agree. I’m worried that if I buy a game, my wife won’t be able to play it. I hope in the least this is locked to user accounts on a single console, much like XBLA games are currently.
I prefer my 360 for gaming and my PS4 is an exclusive machine. I have a feeling come fall these rolls will swap with the new systems. The Xbox One just isn’t doing it for me.
I agree that would be totally awesome. That was Vigil, I believe… But what happened to them when THQ dissolved? I don’t remember.
