Revenge of Nekojin
Regardless of where the story is reported, SE have chosen to focus on social card games for the foreseeable future.
Ah. My mistake. I meant to say the launch of Xbox Live as a service, which I believe started late in 2002.
Regardless, Sega did it first. Not MS. The Dreamcast was also 720p capable, by the way.
That’s really weird, because I remember playing Phantasy Star Online, Tony Hawk, and a ton of other games online in 2001…you know, a year or two before the Xbox came out.
‘You may be young’. Don’t make me laugh. Next you’re going to refine your statement into ‘well yeah but they were the first ones to make it a SERVICE….that you could PAY FOR!’. What did you use that 8GB HDD for anyway? Save games…emulators, maybe.
People can comment on my opinion all they want. Personal attacks on me because of how I choose to spend or not spend my money is not a comment on my opinion, is it?
Go back to thanking MS and Activision for allowing you, the lowly consumer, to spend money on their glorious products.
You’re right. MS was totally the pioneer and innovation hotbed that gave us hard drives, HD video, and online games.
Yeah, they made it by charging 60$ for it when you bought it.
What do you mean, ‘eventual’?
Just like HD-DVD!
Why do you care how I spend my money? Bungie could have secured funding from anyone, literally anyone they wanted. They chose to use a publisher with rabid anti-consumer policies. Tons of people are going to buy this game whether I agree with their publisher’s practices or not, so why do you care?
I hope you like DRM and being drip-fed expensive DLC that was obviously removed from the game before release. Because unless more people start taking stands like me, that’s all you’re going to get in the future.
It’s a shame I won’t be able to play the game since Activision is on my shitlist along with MS and Ubisoft for their ridiculous anti-consumer practices. It looks like a fine piece of work.
At this rate I’ll only be able to play indie games in a few years…
That applies both to Battlestone’s traditional single-player mode, in which you unlock new heroes as you continue your fight against the evil force known as The Void.
Seems like someone didn’t finish their sentence or thought here. I’m assuming it was supposed to say something about multiplayer next.
Hey, they don’t bother me. I was just being a jerk, like I do.
I didn’t see a bold entry for ‘More places to serve advertisements!’ but I can only assume you just forgot.
Bring on the shitty mobile card games!
Well he’s commented on quite a few comments here and he might as well put the #dealwithit hashtag on his posts, because he sounds just like the guy from MS who seems to think consumers should be happy we get anything at all.
This is a guy who calls himself ‘BLOPSFREAK’. If you actually think he has the attention span to remember what he played 3 weeks ago (assuming it wasn’t BLOPS or BLOPS2), you’re barking up the wrong ADHD tree. Some of us enjoy a good game no matter how old it is. I still go back and play SNES RPGs once in a while because they’re well made, fun games. Thankfully, there are multiple solutions available to me to do so.
So I guess they still expect people to pay for basic online services, eh.
It’s a scientist’s life for me. I’m actually looking forward to trying this. The humor in their videos has been pretty spot on, I like the look of the game, and so far the interaction with the world has looked pretty interesting and fun.
I’m kinda outgrowing MMOs, but I can still find a few hours here and there for a fun, interesting one.
You could also rent SNES and N64 games at any old rental place of your choosing for just a few bucks.
I honestly hope it’s better than Class of Heroes was, because that game was just…not fun.
How? I have a 1TB and even with every game PSN+ has given me since last June AND a full MGS4 install it’s not even half full.
Xbox, go home.
While I generally purchase my games new, sometimes I get an itch to play a game that came out a while ago and isn’t easily found at retail anymore, like this weekend when I decided I wanted to play Rune Factory 3. I loaded up Gamestop.com, searched around to find it, and went and bought it.
Can’t do it on the new Xbox. Not that I was interested in it anyway, but yeah, this is going to be a dealbreaker for a lot of people, assuming the PS4 doesn’t pull the same shit.
Yeah that’s another thing. Paranoid it may be, but the idea of having an always connected 1080p camera and microphone watching my house all the time is a little creepy.
All cynical bitching aside, the focus on the Kinect is pretty much forcing me to say ‘No thank you’ to this. I do not have the kind of living room the Kinect likes.
No, I mean as far as the Kinect actions go. I’m sure this is all actually happening on the hardware, but there’s almost certainly someone remotely monitoring the system to make sure that there isn’t any stuttering when he says the commands.
OH BOY SPORTS
all they need to do to ensure that I have zero interest in the console now is spend 20 minutes talking about CoD.
I wondered if anyone believed that this was all actually live.
What happens if you say ‘Xbox, snap Google Chrome’?
