$21M Goal - add Derek Smart to the team.

But seriously, I just hope this doesn't turn into another Battlecruiser 3000AD.

Yippee!! The XB1 has a boosted clock rate of 1.75 GHz!!! Amazing! Beam

Wait a minute... Wasn't the AdBox 360 clocked at 3.2 GHz???
Well, at least XB1 games have access to 8 cores 6 cores versus 3 on the 360.
Half the clock speed and double the cores... Looks like a wash to me.
Someone, please remind me why I preordered this. Flush
Oh, that's right... the XB1's processing power is boosted by "the power of The Cloud!"

Things are looking good.
It appears Brian Fargo will deliver on his promises, and my $250 pledge has been put to good use.

HardOCP is reporting about a study in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence that found that violent video games do not cause teens to become aggressive, and in fact had a "slight calming effect" on vulnerable teens. In other words, Chris Lane would not be dead if GTA V had been released a couple of weeks ago.

Yes, let's ban violent and addictive video games!
Society would be sooo much safer if we turn millions of teens loose on the streets with too much free time and nothing to do.

Well, I’ve finally found a mouse to replace my trusty old MX1100… I just preordered the G602.

While the G700s is great, the need for daily charging via a big stiff cable really kills it. So, the MX1100 has been my primary mouse for years.
The G602 has 11 buttons versus 10 on the MX1100 and 13 on the G700.
The battery life is between 250-1400 hours on a pair of AAs… amazing when you consider that the G700s can only last a few hours between charges.
The G700s offers an insane 8200 DPI, which is great for first-person shooters if you like spinning in circles with a flick of your wrist. The G602 maxes out at a more sensible 2500 DPI. And I like the fact that the G602 has no tilt-scroll wheel… Too many times I’ve inadvertently clicked the wheel while using the tilt function, or vice-versa.

Wireless and gaming mouse do not go together.

I'm guessing you haven't used a wireless gaming mouse in the past few years. Some people hate wireless mice due to lag and low report rates, but those problems are a distant memory... The G602 has a USB report rate of 500Hz.

That ran like shit when released on the PC and STILLLLLL has the bug where if you use an optical mouse you can't play bowling,darts,pool,ETC.

Yeah, it's sad, but many console -> PC ports are best played with a gamepad.

Shrug. I have not finished a GTA game since the 2d ones. For me at least, the 3d ones are mostly sandbox police murder games. I don't play the storylines.

Did you play GTA IV? It was far more than a “sandbox police murder game”… It was a Russian mafia sandbox police murder game with the best storyline in the series.
Nevertheless, San Andreas was still my favorite, due to its larger sandbox; That's why I'm excited for GTA V... It looks like San Andreas on steroids.

Somehow I picture a angry mob of disgruntled customers with torches and pitchforks storming the castle. Bat
I hope Ballmer doesn't fall out of a Window on his way out.
But, I've got to give him credit... Steve did the impossible by making many desktop Windows 8 users miss DOS.

Legend of Dungeon: it's sort of a retro Atari 2600 Gauntlet-style co-op game, but with modern pixel shaders. While the game looks mildly interesting, I threw a few dollars at the Kickstarter last year because these are the kinds of independent developers that we need to support.

I loved Strike Commander... and the new PC I had to build to run the thing. I also enjoyed Pacific Strike... but not as much as Wings of Glory.

Why all the hate for old DOS games? Some of the best games I ever played were DOS games... and half the fun was getting them to run in the first place.

I never played Wasteland, but I did play EA's Wasteland clone/unofficial sequel, Fountain of Wet Dreams which I picked up for a dollar about 15 years ago. It was similar to Bards Tale, but with Killer Clowns, and I enjoyed it enough that I played it to completion. I hear Wasteland was better with more depth, so I wouldn't mind giving it a try.

#5 - XB1 will support a wireless keyboard and mouse... just wishful thinking.

With the direction Microsoft is headed, we'll be lucky if Win9 desktops support them.

It is quite possible that PS4 games will look better than what the highest-end PC can pull off.

I doubt the PS4 would be a match for my $3K gaming PC... but I get your point... Microsh!t’s operating systems are horribly inefficient and bloated, and like the Intel x86 PC architecture, its primary purpose was never as a gaming platform. However, the PC has overcome its limitations with sheer power.

Now I would believe that games on the PS4 will look better than a PC costing three times as much.

So, according to the article the PS4 version will look better than the 180 but they are trying to get it as close as possible.

Still, I would be shocked if the PS4, with its more powerful GPU and faster memory, doesn't at least have higher levels of AA.
And it wouldn't surprise me if the PS4 has better shader and particle effects as well.

Still the 180 has Xbox Live going for it... Now, if only they'd include the dang chat headset so you can keep your family out of the conversation (Kinect chat by default).

I am very surprised that the headline doesn't read...
Don Mattrick Leaving Microsoft for Sony
... especially after the great job he did at E3 convincing Xbox fanboys to preorder the PS4.

Fallout 3 shipped 4.7M copies worldwide in its first week alone… So, there is no doubt that Bethesda is working on a sequel. Was it shown behind closed doors? I’m guessing yes, but it doesn’t really matter… we know a sequel is coming.
