Isn't it a bit 'dick'ish' to say 'hey you bought the console I hate, and I'm glad your suffering' when at the end of the day, people just want to play games, and the game they really want to play isn't on YOUR console?
Hate on the companies for shoddy work is one thing, but because they just want to play games.... seriously?
Shouldn't we have a collective 'FUCK YOU!' to both PS4 and One owner's because we are elitist PC Gamers, who typically have to suffer because of the inferiority of the latest generation of console hardware?
I had a PS3 for the few games that interested me, and I have a 360, and have had a 3DS, and have a PC.
I got a NES for Mario World, SNES for Legend of Zelda/F-Zero, a Gameboy for Tetris and Robocop,Any Gameboy that had the Pokemon games, N64 for more Zelda and Mario, a Atari Lynx because it was just fucking cool at the time, a Gamecube for even more Zelda, a Sega Master System/Genesis/Sega CD for Sonic the Hedgehog, a Playstation for Warhawk and Twisted Metal, a Xbox for Halo, a 360 for more Halo and Forza/PGR Racing, and finally a PS3 for Infamous 1&2, and I bought my first PC back in 1988-1990 for the Sierra 'Quest' line of games, and yes, even for Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards
If I had the option to purchase both the One and PS4 I would. Why? Because I'm a fucking GAMER. I want to play Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5, and I really want to play Infamous 3, but I spend most of my time gaming on my phone and my PC.

And what I find is funny is either the BLOD, RROD, Yellow Light of Death, etc are all heinous crimes against the buyer of the machine, when we had to blow into the cartridges, insert a book or another game into the console, or turn the console upside down or some other trick with the NES. Hell the NES was the VW Beetle of it's time. There were 50 ways to get the damn thing to run after it died.

But to resort to petty bullshit because a gamer recieved bad hardware is stupid.

If they do like Star Wars you'll get 4 5 6, then 1 2 3, then a complete edition with both.
When was the last time a Lego game had DLC?

16. Dear Blue Nov 24, 2013, 00:00 The Half Elf
 
You have been here for us, day in and day out for over 20 years (?). We have shared our experiences with gaming, electronics, kitchen appliances, grilling, pets, friendships, jobs, moving, romances, engagements, family's, anniversaries, health issues, births and deaths, together.

People don't understand why I keep coming to this website after decades, and I tell them, that even though I have never met them personally, we all share something that is very real and tangible. And that is friendship. It isn't defined by our facebook friends count, or how many hits a video gets on youtube, or by how many times nin post on this website. It's defined by who we are.

I can't remember when you started this Out of the Blue part of your website, but what we got is a glimpse of a person who has done nothing but put his readers first for a very long time. And it's not easy doing that in a time where anything you say or type can be thrown in your face or used against you (especially in these times). But for those of us who know you, understand that you have taken your love of gaming and shared it with us, and more then you needed to.

Now this may sound cliche, but online this is my home. The best way I can describe it, is like my family's old Thanksgiving get together's when my father was alive. One of four boys, all married, all with 2 kids each. Gathered at one of their houses, with my Grandmother and Great Aunt there. Everyone together to celebrate just being together, and each other's company.

No thanks are needed Blue, just know, that for all the years you have been here for us, we shall be here for you.

Football game questions:
Who was the company that kicked EA's ass and sold their game for 30 bucks?
Would you be interested if that game developer made a new football series with say the Warhammer Blood Bowl franchise?

Just got home and server is dead


All I have to say is I'd pay 50 bucks for a multiplayer addon to Skyrim then purchase Elder Scrolls Online (or even play it if it was free).

I wish I could get someone at CBS to hire me to be in charge of their game division. You could put all those games on Steam and GOG with a little bit of work and make MILLIONS.
25-100 bucks for Bridge Commander Alone.


Also forgot the Starfleet Command games. Buggy as hell but so much f'ing fun online in the dynaverse (when it worked).

Sorry for your loss Blue...

..and yours Half Elf. It sounds like you have a very healthy way of looking at it.

Thanks folks but here is how I look at it. My father had a 50/50 shot at surviving the liver transplant he had, and without it he would have been dead by the end of the year. With my mom (while it was unexpected) I got to say everything I wanted to say to my mother(because my father was on a respirator his entire time at the hospital, and I was 12 and just ignorant and naive to how things worked), and while I'm not a big fan of religion, I find comfort in thinking that they are back together after 26 years of being apart.

RE: Star Trek. Uh... make a better game next time?

Nope, not possible. Star Trek games suck, it's a law of nature or part of the Matrix or even Heisenberg's (little known) Certainty principle: If Star Trek and Game are in close proximity the outcome can be determined with absolute certainty.

Just a off the top list I could come up with.

Armada 1 and 2, Starfleet Academy/Klingon Academy, Bridge Commander, DS9 The Fallen, 25th Anv. Judgement Rights, Elite Force 1 and 2, Legacy, Star Trek Online, and many more I'm too tired to google.

How many games have come out since the reboot? 2. DAC (which isn't bad but bleh), and Star Trek The Video Game.

Yeah but 1 vs how many?

I still think it's funny how opposite this console generation is compared to the last one, where Sony was the Asshole, but Microsoft had the RROD.

How is it opposite? Even if 10,000 PS4's are broken (which at this point I highly doubt there are or it would be a statistic on every single gaming site so far, at most estimated is like 1,000), that would be less than 1% failure rate.

Nowhere even close to the RROD's 15+%
or the PS3's 5%
or the Wii's 5%

In fact if they're anywhere close to 1% thats a fucking magnificent launch. There will always be hardware failures.

You may want to wait and see if Microsoft botched their manufacturing again and how many of their consoles have hardware failures tonight when the system actually launches and people start getting systems in their hot little hands before you start fanboying.

Not fanboi'ing as I plan on buying a PS4 long before a Xbox One. But go back to the launch of the 360 and PS4. Sony was telling you how you would need a second job to buy it's console, and Microsoft had the RROD issue (but if I could find the link Sony had just as many Yellow Light of Deaths over the course of it's existence, not to mention if you had a backwords compatible PS3 and it died you were screwed out the wazoo).

But (damn I can't find my links) what was amazing is how low key the PS3 deaths were compared to the 360's.

A death on a day of celebration is a hard thing to deal with. My father's on mine, and my mother's on my sisters birthday.
But it's the memories of them, that get's me through.

My condolences Blue.

bought a 40 inch Element from Target on Black Friday 2 years ago for 200 and has served me quite well and even my brother in law (who is a videophile with his 55 inch Sony 3D TV) said it looked great. But I was over at their house babysitting tonight and once the kids went to bed I played GTA5, and I'm not sure if it's me, but the framerate seemed better on the Sony TV.

Did anyone picked this up on the PC?
I am hearing some good things about this one. Like it is a better Far Cry then Far Cry 3 was.

After playing the 360 version, the PC version is just fucking dead sexy. Foliage movement, especially during a storm is beautiful (and I LOVE weather effects in game).

Riding a rogue wave like a surfboard, in a storm while fighting a fleet of ships, WHILE attacking a fort has been my biggest 'GET THE PADDLES READY I'M GONNA HAVE A HEART ATTACK!' moment in years. Thankfully I quit chewing my nails years ago, cause all I would have left is palms.

The story is just 100 times better then AC3 (which I still can't finish) and AC4 sorta spoils what I already knew about Desmond, but the 'out of the animus' story (from what little I have played), is a 1st person view, but alot more enjoyable then walking around in the previous games and just talking to Sean and what's her name.

Another example of how PC games get delayed, but are so worth it, especially with the AC series on PC.

GO CUBS!

Your optimism is so amusing.

/Cardinals fan.

I was a Chargers/Padres fan back when I lived (grew up in San Diego area) in California, back when stadiums had 1 name (Jack Murphy Stadium), but it's been many moons since Dan Fouts and Steve Garvey.
Only thing I share with Bengal's fan is our hatred of the Steelers.
But as for the Cubs, (while I don't follow the seasons) I love me a underdog, and I don't mean how the Reds/Bengals start off great, f'up the rest of the season, and BARELY make it into the play-offs and give up (for the last 5 years at least).

Plus I REALLY want to go to Wrigley field. I believe it's one of the last few original fields left that hasn't been renamed, or sold to some corporation.

Dear lord, look at all the games in that archive.

Rainbow Six, System Shock 2, Shogo, hell even Battlecruiser 3000ad was a fine product compared to the crap that gets shovel out these days.

Old? We need our own Gaming wing at the senior citizen home.

Wow, zero to awkward in record time. Can it recognize and sign you in automatically based on your foreskin?

True fact: The PS4 has never asked to see my dick.
