Okay, yeah, the thing I just said is completely wrong, but people don't play FPS games on Nintendo hardware.

True.

*SNIP* -- Yeah, I know, it's easy to use for nerds, but we're talking the Average Joe Steam customer here.

Average Joes use Linux now too! Android!

It's possible. Who says Valve can't make their own distro? Oh yeah, nobody.

Linux-Android could not possibly in any way be more unlike Linux-linux.

I'm rather certain Nintendo doesn't care for your pithy comments, when Wii-U sales exceed their expectations in its launch week, while the Wii sells almost the same amount as the new console and the DS/3DS sell nearly a million combined in the month of November. So no matter how you define your "generations" of consoles, they have TWO of them performing well simultaneously. Xbox 360 and PS3 are still selling well, but you have to keep in mind they're so old that they can be had for $100-150, while minimum price for Wii-U is $300... They beat the competition to next-gen, so they're reaping the rewards.

Specs wise the Wii, and Wii U are last gen tech. Facts are facts. It's great for Nintendo sure,cheaper to make, lower price in general than the competition, works well for their franchises that they continually reshovel out year after year, and there's nothing wrong with that if you're into Mario or Zelda or whatever, but for developers making high end hardcore games utilizing the latest tech prolly not so much.

Crysis as a franchise has always been about cutting edge visuals, and you're not going to get that on the Wii, that's just the reality of it.

Crysis 3 is headed for the PS3 and xbox 360. The Wii U has more horsepower than either of them.

Does anyone have Dark Souls on both a console and the PC? If so is it worth getting on the PC if I already have it on the PS3?

I seem to remember something about the controls are bad unless you use a gamepad on your PC. I've been waiting for it to go on sale before taking a chance on it still I'm hesitant.

It definitely looks prettier on the PC if you use DSFix.

It also cleans up some (not all) of the performance problems in Blight Town.

It is a tremendous pain in the ass to co-op. I would literally say 99% of my attempted summons have failed. I have only managed to summon one person, and I've tried a lot.

Invading is easier.

as a long time redskins fan... ouch!

Missed the game, but I saw a picture of him in the process of collapsing. Holy shit, his knee looked *fucked*.

I really, really don't see a Packers/Patriots Superbowl.

I was about to snarkily say, "There is nothing cool about JJ Abrams," but then I saw the headline. Oh. Yeah. Pretty good of him.

At least with the kickstarter, we'll finally settle the question of "How many fans did this show really have?" once and for all.

Creston
We'll see.. I was a really big fan of the show, but I do not like MMOGs so I wouldn't back it. There are probably many others in that same boat.

Yup. Same here. I'd love to play a Telltale serial or a Bioware RPG set in the firefly universe tho.

Ditto. I think I'd tear my hair out if it were a Bioware RPG, but I'm sure there's some company out there that still knows how to make them.

Dammit Bengals!

God what an awful game. The defense played well, but the offense was absolute shit.

Also, I may be going crazy, but I'm counting 13-3 for myself, last week.

I hate Gog.com sales. I don't want a dozen games for 25$ or nothing, they never have single game offers for a big portion of their catalog.

Almost their entire catalog is 50% off right now, as individual purchases.

The controller rests comfortably on your fingers when they're on the trigger, and in order to do so your fingers go over the top shoulder buttons. You can just nudge your finger to hit them. If you have to move your index finger to hit those, as you do on the PS3, you're holding it wrong.

It always confused me so much that PS3 games have the upper buttons as shoot, rather than the triggers. But the triggers feel so poorly designed, so...

The Apple defense. If I'm interpreting what you're saying correctly, that is a completely bizarre way to hold the controller for me. Diff'rent strokes.

The PS3 triggers do feel kinda mushy compared to the 360 ones.

Also: I have and use an xbox 360 controller on my PC. It's kind of a piece of shit. The actual thing feels sturdy, but the D-pad is the worst of any controller I've ever used, the buttons are mushy, and the analog sticks click.

The PS3 controller is much nicer, but you have to do a little fiddling to get games to recognize it as a 360 controller, sometimes.

Man, I couldn't disagree more. I hate the PS3 controller. Too light, sticks too close together, absolutely horrifically bad shoulder buttons, etc.

You're correct about the d-pad on the 360 being awful, but I rarely use it - only for selecting weapons and it does that fine (well, when going for cardinal directions. Starts getting worse if you're going 8 way.) The newer controller fixes this decently, for additional cost. No issue with me with the sticks, though, nor the buttons, and the shoulder buttons are infinitely better.

Man. The shoulder ones are what I hate the absolute most of the 360 controller. After the D-pad. I feel like I have to contort my hands to get at 'em.

When you push down on them?


...no. Specifically, when I move them left. This is probably just a defect in mine, but it's annoying.

(The D-pad is renowned for being the worst ever, but I think the other issues are probably just problems with mine)

Amazon Dark Souls = $18 plus you can use your $5 credit on it. I'll probably pass on it give how poor I've heard the port is. Anyone know if it's improved? Do you still have to use a gamepad?

Some games are just better with a gamepad. I'm a KB/M guy, but even if Dark Souls *were* an awesome port and supported KB/M well, it would be a bad experience with it. That's not what kind of control scheme the game was designed for, at its core.

Happy new year everyone Still 3 hours to go here but meh.. it can only get better...

My personal rule is to never drive 12hrs before or 36hrs after new year. ^^

Also I will never understand why people start their fancy rockets and fireworks before midnight. Do they not understand what you celebrate on new year? It's the, gasp, new year. So fireworks before new year.. are like.. totally absurdly wrong ,p


I don't celebrate the new year. I celebrate the nearing end of the old shitty year. The new one hasn't done anything worth celebrating yet.
