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

Yea Bioshock needs to be on there, still my favorite of the year, somewhat surprisingly.
Man this game guys! It’s like inspirational and exciting. Nothing announced compares to this right now.
Interesting, Xbox.com main page is no longer working for me, but the Xbox One Game store is fine > https://store.xbox.com/en-US/
I’d have thought they would both be effected.
Website still seems to be loading. Seems slower than normal though.
February is a pretty nice early date considering they said Spring 2014 back at E3. Probably smart (as long as they aren’t rushing) because of all the big spring games that keep being dated. (Destiny, Watch Dogs, ESO, Titanfall)
Awesome, just added you!
Both consoles are coming/came in hot software wise. PS4 got another major bug fix update today. But your right, coming in hot means things get cut, and other things get overlooked.
This comment confused me.
That definitely seems like a problem, and one they already have an implemented answer for when the OS does other things like you ask it to turn off. So your right there should be a confirmation command when switching from one game to another. Better fix asap.
Even if you don’t use it for multitasking, It allows you you to play a game, go watch netflix, Skype with a friend, and return to the game instantly because its still loaded until you launch a different game.
Opening enough apps should not cause you game to close, its when you open another game that it closes your current game. Makes sense. Apps keep 6 in memory at a time with its own pool, which is a different pool of memory than games.
I didn’t think snapping made too much sense, but than last friday I was playing games and watching Giant Bombs live stream of PS4 stuff… except I wasn’t watching it because I had to look over to a computer away from my game to do so. I could totally see watching and playing at the same time because both of those are high entertainment priorities for me. Even though in most cases I’d much rather be fully immersed in a game.
And for controlling the media set up, I don’t have a complicated set up either, I’m not going to be upset if I still had to pick up a remote and turn on my TV and change volume every day that way. Thats just about convenience though. Turn one thing on with your voice and its all on ready to go.
The PS4 has some great exclusive features too, my comment was more about lumping all the the cool Xbox features into the cable TV integration.
100x larger…. hmmm… are you sure it wasn’t a cake?()!
I hope so and think its more likely they know things need to evolve, but with the PS3 it was mostly them building on the Same UI for 7 years.
I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS GIF FOREVER!!!!
I remembered from E3 2012 and every once in a while I would look for it!!! Thank you!!
I think latching the higher score onto the cable stuff is a little disingenuous. Not saying thats your intention, but as someone who doesn’t and never will have cable I think the other media stuff they are doing like running an additional app while your playing your game, and Kinect controlling your entire media TV set up is more important from the pushing future tech forward side.
I look at the tv cable guide integration as a necessary evil to get more mainstream consumers because it looks like cable (such an old technology) will still be around for a while.
Another week another console review, you guys have gotten so good at this that when the next console launches in 7 years you’ll really have perfected it. ;) But seriously crazy good looking article, props to everyone who contributed to this masterpiece and last weeks PS4 review.
And like last week for PS4 we have a thread in the forums for sharing our Gamertags with new Xbox One owners. Jump in if you want.
A little bit of a dry spell yea. Though some games come out before than like Project Spark and Minecraft.
I hope, but I really think until late 2015 they need to hedge there bets in more than Just Dance 15. We will see!
We had Battlefield focused post on release and a PS4 one last week. Just needed to comment there than I’d add for each game you have. After new consoles settle down this month I think we’ll have a monthly general purpose post up for new submissions. But for now I just added you guys under BF4!
I’m looking forward to Zoo Tycoon, I expect tears!
No problem, anybody who is undecided can let use know any additional games latter.
The gaming groups thread and speadsheet is suppose to help meet ups and groups like this get made. Right now it’s more of a tool, so your doing the right thing by still scheduling things and actively trying to get a group together. It’s unfortunate some people are on the list but not responding, but I’m sure you’ll be able to hopefully find a great crowd to play with!
I’d say out of those games I would pick Forza, Dead Rising 3 and NBA 2K13, which would allow for a nice rounded line-up.
But of course if reviews for Ryse end up sounding like your jam than swap that with DR3, or get both if you want.
Probably download Killer Instinct for free too just to try out.
Also since you’ll be getting your console next week, you’ll be able to wait for both the reviews and community impressions. So maybe ask again over the weekend!
Ubisoft has 2 new IPs announced for release in 2014 that are next-gen only. I don’t see another big 3rd party that can boast anything near that. Yes the next AC will probably still be cross-gen, but they have to hedge their bets somewhere while they put money into games like the Division and the Crew being made for a growing but smaller next gen audience.
