I can't help but think that MS would be so much better off without Ballmer.

I'd almost get a cheap PS3 to play Bayonetta. It's over the top and stupid and yet pretty enjoyable.

I don't know if they can recapture the same thing in the Wii U version without retreading.

I think people nit pick too much. I'll leave it at that. I think this is just meant to market the license and have some fun. It definitely isn't aimed at diehard fans of the original series.

Have diehard Star Trek fans accepted the reboot on a whole? I found it to be atrocious, the recasting of most of the characters was decent enough but everything else felt so opposite of what Star Trek should be. Just look at that freeze frame from this video clip, pretty movie accurate. How did something that god awful ever get approved.

As far as I can tell most fans have accepted it. I have. I liked it.

The movie did a pretty good job of being movie Star Trek. Series Star Trek has a different feel and that hasn't been rebooted. I'd welcome a reboot of it too though. I still like TOS, but I'm ok with new things.

If I were still a big FPS guy this game would probably appeal to me. It seems ok for a movie-tie in game. I'm just more into RPGs right now.

Anyone else remember the really good Star Trek RPG/adventures that Interplay made (before they started to suck)? I want more Star Trek games like that.

Sounds interesting. I worry a little about latency issues, but I guess we'll see.

You can make NV look better with mods and some ini tweaks, but I'd still rather have an updated engine.

I think when they were saying "New Vegas 2" they probably meant "Fallout in the west 2". I don't think they'd revisit the exact same area. I am totally down for that.

A Fallout based on the latest Skyrim engine would make me happy. I still play New Vegas but it is definitely creaky software.

They're taking fan input on the game as it's in development. They can't do that as well with one update every 3 months.

Besides, every update is also a marketing tool. You can still put money in and/or change your initial "investment".

This is better than I hoped it would be. All the flavor text is going to be fun and the turn based combat is already giving me a just-one-more-turn itch.

Since tablet/pad devices are going through so many changes and upgrades right now I've decided to wait a while. The longer I wait the better and cheaper they get. In the mean time my smart phone does everything a tablet does and my gaming PC takes care of everything else.

The Nexus network sucks too, their DL servers are down as often as not

I've never had a problem with their premium servers. Oh, you mean the FREE servers? :P

I look at it the opposite way. I wouldn't touch their premium servers if they can't even get the basics down.

My experience with the subscription servers on the Nexus is that they are superior to the free ones. Sometimes I think about getting a lifetime sub.

Sort of interested, but can't decide. Platformers are sort of a dime a dozen and I've already seen ones that have editors. I think I need more spicy to bite off on this one.

I never bought Police Quest (I was a kid with limited funds), but I played Space Quest a lot. Maybe I'll check out the Kickstarter.

I'd like to be able to resell stuff I don't play on Steam. Even if the sale just gave me store credit and Valve took 5% it would be really nice to be able to unload things I don't play anymore. I sort of wish the EU could force it.

I tried to watch two of their vids and was turned off by the metal music. It was just too cheesy.

I can't think of anything I've seen on Youtube that I'd pay for - but maybe a few things would pop up if the option was there.

I can also see a bunch of butt-hurt content creators making their channels pay-only just to discover that the "fans" they thought they had were only fans when everything was free.

I wish I could yell "FEAR! FEAR! FEAR!" and wait for the money to roll in. It seems to work really well in politics.

A JJ Abrams SW movie might be pretty good. I'd give it a chance anyway.

Research is great, but they're not looking for facts - they're looking for scape goats.

I thought we were over this already.

What I got out of the Wii U article is to wait until next Christmas. By then it will have had 2 big updates and some more games.
