Video game enthusiest. Enjoys playing games more than complaining about them.

This seems like a discussion about reviewing story heavy games that already have a predefined formula. And not necessarily about episodic games as a whole. It just so happens telltale is the major player doing episodic games (and now cranking out 2 or more a year).

I like the suggestion of updates and spoilerish reviews for each episode. But perhaps at the same time (like TV shows) you can do a non spoiler review for the beginning of a season, and perhaps update that same review at the end of the season if any mechanical or story quality changes effect the season as a whole.

Some good ideas all around though, cool that your experimenting where you find things need adjustments.

But Phil is now in charge of Xbox Music and Xbox video too… Isn’t that all of Microsofts Entertainment division? Where does Elop fit in? I guess he also has windows phone hardware and Surface stuff under him too?

I’ve warmed up to the idea since yesterday, but still sort of scared they’ll end up using Facebook accounts exclusively for signing into their oculus ecosystem.

Yes you’ll be able to use the hardware by itself with Steam or something, but it sounds like they are trying to make a software experience best fit for VR too, and having not used other services before because of required Facebook accounts, that’s were the relationship scares me.

I personally wouldn’t mind if they all switched to digital codes. However this way it’s sort of a win for people who prefer physical or digital. Buying it separately lets people choose.

Comment

Yes price and value has to be looked at separately, and I’m not interested enough for a CE of this game. But I hope it catches on enough. Just let people buy the game itself in whatever form they want.

Well, we’ve officially hit the point where I can buy the collector’s edition and just get my game digitally. Awesome! ;)

Your sarcasm, was returned with my sarcasm, I think your the one that didn’t pick up on that ;)

Exactly that, there is one extra tomb too (short like the rest of them). Oh and it looks pretty too. But I’m sure most extra stuff is multiplayer maps you won’t or shouldn’t touch.

Oh man, really? We should start putting the day of the week in the PD headline to prevent any more confusion!

I think no one would let it slide if we actually missed a day… So your best bet is to assume we aren’t skipping days.

Seems like the Vita version would be great than, been wanting to check it out, so I will eventually.

This morning seems possibly better than yesterday, well…. at least it’s a lot less crazy.

We should make some jabs at the poll and how it doesn’t matter what timezone, it’s always late on Tuesdays! ;)

Someone at Oculus thought this was a good idea?

I guess for me, its one of those things where I’d want to go all digital, but it just doesn’t make sense for me to do it with Nintendo stuff yet. The smart way to do it of course is to buy where you can find the best deals, along with current convenience.

You do know that the Sony and MS servers probably have a download capacity a lot lower than yours :P. In other words I still want you to feel our pain, Mr. I have the fastest internet ever!

I think I’d be able to deal with an external drive if NN had a full account licensing system in place. So main reason I go all physical with Nintendo is because of that. However I’ll be using some of that 32GB for Mario Kart, got to make exceptions for some games when it makes sense.

I guess it didn’t exceed my expectations because I had already played dozens of hours of both the alpha and the beta. The final release had some new weapons and maps, but otherwise I knew 100% what the game was, weeks before it came out. I like that game, super fun, refined mechanics, but small in scope.

All valid inhibitors, but you don’t need to be fully invested. Just have fun with it once in a while, and find ways to make the time you have as enjoyable as possible.

Titanfall is super fun, but its a game that didn’t exceed my expectations in any way, and will just get…. more predictable over time if all it gets is new maps.

Should consider getting a full group from here together. I’m already a few gens in. Wish I had more Polygon peeps on my X1 friends list.

Comment

Titanfall and some Garden Warefare have been pretty good for me this month. But I really wish some of late May’s games were coming out in April instead. Especially Mario Kart or Watch Dogs. Maybe Wolfenstein, otherwise I’m not interested in ESO on PC or Kinect Sports Rivals.

Though I guess with Trials and some Child of Light, it could be a really good month for the lower priced digital games.

Thats probably because you start eating it after too! Who could resist.
