The timer has just under 18 hours remaining before it hits zero...
Hmm, I assume you meant just under 28 hours as there are still more than 25 hours now.

Update: Edited because "math am hard."

At least give me a single player MOBA to find out what that MOBA craziness is all about.
But then it wouldn't be called a MOBA!

Because then they have to become the adjudicators of that system.
That shouldn't be too much work for them.. or at least give us a 1-5 Stars (or Steams?) rating that we can give our games.

The problem is the rating system is utter crap all the way around. Users should NOT be able to write a review either positive or negative unless they actually own the title they are complaining about. Places like Steam have shown how people come in the forums and complain about games they donít even own
Speaking of Steam, I wonder why they don't have their own user rating system instead of only showing the Metacritic review score. That way they could only allow people who own the game to give a review or rating and it could even show the number of hours the person has played it.

One day the ability to subscribe to Gold will require a Gold subscription.
That's possible! I'm sure they'll eventually require a Gold subscription to do anything online. The Ads will always be free though.. well, with the price of the xbox.

MS is making me more and more happy with my PS4 preorder.

Sweet. Cant wait for a new console. My 360 and ps3 are DAMN OLD!! Getting Xbox first...It was the superior controller and Live that won me over last gen.
I agree about the 360 controller over the PS3s, but the PS4 controller looks a little wider so it should feel better in hand. I'll be getting the PS4 this year and so far have no plans to get the new xbox at all. I pre-ordered the PS4 along with the new Killzone game and will probably get a few other games as Christmas gifts.

Are people really that eager for another Left 4 Dead? I enjoyed the games well enough, but really? Yet More Zombies?
I'm not really but I would probably get it once it dropped in price and went on sale. I thought L4D1&2 were ok except for the waves of running zombies.

As for HL3 or Ep3, I'd be more interested in that.

I was just going to comment that the lack of paper hasn't lowered the cost of a book one fucking cent - I blame Apple.
Yeah because Apple invented ebooks... Rolleyes

Thanks for the reviews! I didn't have MoW or KB so I went ahead and picked up this bundle too.

Also, to those here who are expecting the PS4 to have better frame rates than the Xbox One, I would suggest you be less optimistic as history shows developers are quite keen on making Microsoft and Sony cross-platform games function exactly the same.

There was a Call of Duty game for Xbox and PS2 called Big Red One. It had fucking garbage graphics meant for PS2. They did nothing to enhance the Xbox version, which should have had frame rates through the roof.

Instead, the Xbox version's frame rate was locked at about 20 or less so that it performed just like the PS2 version. The frame rate was absolutely HORRIBLE.
That wasn't the same for the X360 and PS3 though. There were some games that played much better on the Xbox.. although some of that probably had to do with the difficulty devs had working on the PS version of their games.

Not bad.. I paid enough to get Dead Island Riptide since I didn't pick it up during the Steam Summer Sale.

Couldn't care less about the challenge stuff, but the return to Rapture sounds good! Odd timing, as I just started replaying Bioshock (original) last night...I think I enjoyed Rapture more than I did Columbia.
Yeah, I think that was my favorite of all with Infinite being a close second.

Looking forward to the Burial at Sea DLCs but I'll probably wait until both are out before I go back to it.

Something tells me you are referring to Frappe Rally. I was in a I'76 gang named Frappe, where everyone drove the Rattler (Shelby Cobra). One of the tests to get in was to race gang members around the track. Definitely one of the more skilled groups in the game, using a lighter car with minimal weapon racks to dominate.
That map sounds familiar but I was in a gang called VSF and one of the members made the map I'm thinking of. It was a wild track with bumps and jumps and it really beat up your car.

I think they launched way too early. I don't remember seeing anything but concept art. Some of it looked good but if you want to get something like that funded you have to show something that makes your vision of the game clear. Gameplay in most cases. Some kickstarters have been successful just talking about ideas but I don't think this idea is good enough to stand on that.
Companies like Obsidian and inXile can get away with just concept art and an idea, but these guys definitely need to show more and have something more people want like SP.

Also it would help if they ask for less money and then add more through stretch goals because a lot of people are more likely to back a project that appears to be doing well than one that's not going anywhere.

Yeah, I suggested they work on a good SP campaign like I'76 had then add some maps for MP and release tools to allow players to create their own maps. One of my favorite maps from I'76 was a race track that a fellow clan member made. It was crazy difficult to complete but I had a lot of fun trying.

Never heard about that one... but now that I'm actually buying a console (PS4), I probably will be more in tune with console exclusive announcements.
Yeah, I just got on the PS4 pre-order bandwagon too. I have both a X360 and PS3 and have many pros and cons about each, but between the XOne and PS4 I feel that Sony has done a better job this time.
