zerothree Also, you won't have to worry about kids or "dude-bros" skyping you their junk in the middle of a game, instead of just calling you a racial epithet and/or a faggot.

Zomboid Same.

10,000 Volt Ghost I'm getting a ps4. I don't want microsoft to take spy pictures of me with my dick out.

It's about goddamn time, Capcom.

I'm excited to see it's a side scroller and it's has elements from the arcade games and the NES game... but still, I don't know what to think about it yet. Capcom has gotten really good at taking the things I love and shitting all over them. Then again, it's a new Strider game that I've been waiting 13 years for.

Dimnos Shut up and log onto league. Im tired of playing with so many ass hats.
May 28th, 2013 05:22 PM
kahljorn so does anybody else want to talk more about really dumb ideas?

my outrage at the videogame industry keeps me busy

honestly the most use im gonna get out of this xbox one is being outraged about it
May 28th, 2013 05:21 PM
kahljorn did you guys notice that the xbox one can also be used as a watercooler?

i think you'll all be saving money on watercoolers in the future

also the tv thing isn't so bad does it mean that microsoft is becoming its own broadcasting station? so like internet tv instead of regular tv?
but yea i still dont really buy xboxes for television i guess.

Dimnos In high school I was a drug dealer who also sold games.
May 23rd, 2013 06:45 PM
zerothree Oddly enough, while I was in high school I bought Resident Evil 2 and X-Men vs. Street Fighter off a guy who most likely was also a drug dealer. Still, that was $15 well spent.

Phoenix Gamma I want to buy a new console, but Sony and Microsoft don't want me to

To be fair, I haven't touched my PS3 since Persona 4 Arena came out, and I haven't touched my Wii U since the Rayman Challenge levels first came out.

The console market is charging head-first into a market crash, and I'm not sure anyone knows what to do about it. To its credit, the XB1's unveil was better than the 360's, and it's the only one that seems to really understand living room integration. But I feel like the CoD audience can't support either console on its own, and the Wii U just doesn't have a pulse at all.

People who actually care about games have a PC, and maybe a 3DS. Consoles are more for the general audience, who's getting its gaming fix through tablets and phones and facebook.

EDIT: As for used games, I don't really care. Right now I have the income to buy new games (or wait for Steam sales). When I was in high school, though, I practically lived off of used games, so I'm bummed there's going to be kids at that age who can't scrap together money for a nicotine-laden Devil May Cry, or trading games with some weird dude in the parking lot who probably deals drugs but is the only guy in 20 miles who has a copy of Disgaea so you trusted him anyways and ended up at a creepy part of town you never new existed trying to find the game in a stranger's apartment under stacks of porn and The Boston Phoenix.

So it's a bummer to see that go away.

Dimnos PC gaming is where its at.

zerothree Xbox One is a dumb name first off. Like, Wii U dumb.

I'm totally done buying anything labeled Xbox, Since they first came out I went through two Xboxes and three 360s. I can't imagine the new one (ha) to be a well built machine.

Anyhoozle, I'm tired of all these "gaming" consoles that seem to have games the least important aspect of them. Seriously, who wants to watch TV through their console? Is it just some type of ploy to make sure you never turn off your Xbox?

The always online has been debunked... sort of. Sure, you don't need to be online all the time, but if you aren't you will miss out on updates and such that might keep you from playing games. Oh, and those updates? Yeah, they might be an every day occurrence. My PC doesn't even update that often.

The used game fee, no matter what the price you'll eventually have to pay, is bullshit. Gamestop's prices for some used games are bad enough, (Oh, only $54.99, HOLY SHIT, THE SAVINGS!) but to have another amount to pay on top of that is just bananas. Also, the not being able to play at a friend's house thing has been given an answer...
From Gamespot:
'Earlier today, a Wired report claimed the Xbox One would require secondhand users pay a fee to play used games. Hryb did not deny this in his statement today, saying only that there will be no fee for those who play their games at a friend's house, provided they sign in to their profile.
"Another piece of clarification around playing games at a friend's house--should you choose to play your game at your friend's house, there is no fee to play that game while you are signed in to your profile," he said'



To be signed into your profile requires you to be online of course.


Lastly, none of the announced games so far look that great to me. It's all just the same shit we already have, but prettier. I guess the same argument could have been made going from PS2-PS3 and Xbox-360 though.


I'm probably just going to be a hypocrite and will end up buying one anyway when something I want to play will come out for it exclusively, but I really hope that shit doesn't happen...

Guitar Woman

Xbox One, not to be confused with the Xbox 1, the only iteration that was actually worth owning.
Anyway cool cable box guys, where's that game console you said you were bringing out?

Seriously though, it's like Microsoft saw everything wrong with the games industry and went "Oh man, I wonder if we could just compact this all into a fucking singularity, then sell it!" It's always online, it will not function without Kinect, and it requires you to pay fees for used games. And by "fees" I mean "the full retail price of the game." If you want to bring a copy of a game over to a friend's house you have to pay the price of the game again to be able to play it on their console. I just... why? Why would you do that? You're going to lose at least twice as much money from the lack of anyone buying this stupid fucking shit than you'd lose from used game sales. Holy fuck.

PS4 doesn't look so bad anymore, does it? I mean, it still looks like shit, but I know which of the two I'd get if forced to at gunpoint.

I've also been told that you can turn the thing on with voice commands. Does that mean Kinect is always listening to you? Is the camera always on? Is Bill Gates the Big Brother of IRL??? :o

SuperYuriGagarin Colonial Marines is one of the greatest cluster fucks of modern gaming. It was in development "by gearbox software" for almost the entire time they produced Borderlands 1 and 2, and apparently much of the game was outsourced to different companies. Then when it came time for Gearbox to hammer all these outsourced assets together, none of it worked.
Jan 31st, 2013 04:41 PM
Nick Yeah, they turned it into a CoD with Aliens and tacked a watered down L4D multiplayer on it.
Jan 31st, 2013 01:32 AM
HickMan Is it just me or do the commercials for Aliens: Colonial Marines look like total shit?

Don't know if this has been brought up before...but figured I'd throw it out there

Nick Played the Metal Gear Rising demo today. S'alright. Still need to figure out how to parry and block well, though.
