We play games that are everything from Brain Surgery inside the back of a ambulance, to casting magic, hacking computer and blah blah blah blah. Your both pretty, but noone gives a shit about the impact crater in a game where they use Thomas Jefferson as the centerpiece to remove nuclear crap from the water source, all we cared about was not being able to play after the ending.

New Stupid Argument: Which is better, sparkly vampires with hair gel, or vampires who turn to the dark side after having sex with Buffy?

That being said, overall I liked Fallout 3 better. New Vegas had overall better writing but felt tiny compared to Fallout 3 and Fallout 3's overall main story.

I think the best solution for Microsoft is to just pack an extra PS4 in the Xbone box. Apparently you can even run them side by side.

Oh God we'll never see Bats again!


As for patching and playing on demand, a few MMO's use it now, but I remember having to fight every time I resintalled Guild Wars to download everything at one time.

'Xbox Hang Up' LOL

I will say that I'm interested in the game recording/sharing, as I'm not going to invest in a capture card/software, but would love to show off how to steal the c130 from GTA 5.

Being old school, I've always went to Add/Remove and removed the old Nvidia drivers manually before installing a new ones.

This time I decided to let GeForce Experience do it's thing and update me. I didn't even have to reboot which was nice. I'm curious to see if allowing GeForce Experience to upgrade me will cause any problems down the road. I figure if it fails in some way I can manually remove and clean everything then go back to my old ways.

You know if you choose custom install with Nvidia, you can choose to remove the old drivers?

Actually this is sorta funny (not in a good way), as I saw Bats playing this on Steam and asked him 'Is that the game where you can build defenses and bases (because I saw the video of ROAM) and How to Survive looked identical without the structure building part.

Sorry, I already paid full price for the game and the DLC, I'm not paying 5 bucks (even if I did have it) for what should be given for free.

Console Games Have Helped Save The PC.

Well, I'd say that ports of console games then made available via digital distribution "saved" the PC.

But at what price? Massive dumbization of FPS games for once. I can't recall the last FPS that was worth it post Q3A and UT tbh, especially for MP. They removed so many stuff it's mind boggling.

-Proprietary sounds for each items picked up, giving auditory clues to whereabouts. ( That's something I mastered at Q3A and it gave me a HUGE advantage )
-Complex maps.
-Health packs.
-NO FUCKING EXPANDING CROSSHAIRS.
-Maps sometimes better suited for some kind of weapons, rockets for closed environments/corridors, then sometimes for others, like rails for open world, etc.
-Choices of where to go next where of prime importance. Counterstrike then implement the "it's mostly get to the front, spray and pray the crosshair expansion is mercifull and nets you more hits than misses" gameplay. Somewhat alleviated today by the gunsights.
-Back then it was furious fast paced and you actually had to have reflexes and strategies. I can't remember how many times outsmarting my opponent while being more accurate than the other guy saved my ass because of guns reload time and some things like grenade launcher/corner flight time calculations and strike while between shots kind of thing.

Right now it's all CoD Clones crap. I can't bear to even look at someone else playing.

And that only 1 example for only FPS games... Really.

Um you can't call console FPS games dumb, then say Quake 3 Arena was better when all you had to do was jump and shoot, same with UT. Auditory Clues on objects that don't make noise? When's the last time a gun made noise without being fired?

I'm sorry Simon but your post is full of so many holes it might as well be a screen door on a submarine.

I had some issues with BF2142 and Spore, and I checked the EA page and they have a service where they will call you back. Well they called me back within a min, and ended up with the GOTY code for 2142 for free. I'm all about EA hating as the next person but they were awesome.
Now if I could just get punkbuster to quit banning me every time I try to play 2142...

Controls are the same as they have been since GTA 3, with just different locations for the buttons. Granted I wouldn't mind more FPS type food controls, but after GTA 3, GTA 4 (2 DLC's), Red Dead Redemption and LA Noire all having the same type of character movement, GTA 5 is more of the same.

The real poison to any marriage are in-laws. Keep them more than 1000 miles away and you'll be fine.
1033 miles from my current location is Orlando Florida. Trust me those extra 33 miles help!

Blues, the success to being married is two things, you should have been told this when you got married. Always agree with her and you are always right.

As a gay guy even I KNOW this rule. Congrats Blue, but for some reason I was having a Everyone Loves Raymond flashback.

*insert joke about the echo*

Is it really wise for Sony to allow Real Names with their history of theft?

Is it really wise for Microsoft to allow internet connectivity at all with their operating systems history of security holes?

Of course, the hack happened but many other companies were hacked over the past decade, they learn from it and move on in most cases.

Is that why last month I had both my Playstation and SOE account hacked after changing my passwords twice since Sony was hacked?
