*what I see*

Look at all the stuff we're not including in your $60 purchase! Isn't it exciting to know how much content we still have for you to buy?

Lack of games is a pretty broad stroke on the Vita. At a core level the games they sell on those little sticks are a sign of what Sony considers a priority on the machine. I would prefer Sony push digital games and ship the vita with built in storage expecting people to buy most of their games online.

It's a 3g/wifi device after all. This is what they should have done with the psp and instead they let it die with that stupid umd format. Seems like they're on the same path as before. It's foolish to sell a proprietary format memory card that is required to use it how it is should have been intended from the beginning.

They seem to think the lowered price will make it more enticing but what is a portable device with no memory and games on little cards good for these days?

Everything is going digital and Sony either needs to ship a new PSV that has lots of internal memory and change their strategy to sell things online...or watch this device fail miserably.

The Ipad seems like the mobile gaming device of the future. Any mobile game developer is likely hard at work building software for that and getting them to try to make something on the psv is going to take a LOT of money from Sony.

Well that sounds....AWESOME!!!!!!

The puzzle maker can directly publish maps to the Steam Workshop where users can browse, vote on, and select to play them. Selected puzzles will automatically be downloaded and installed inside Portal 2.

I can't wait to see this in action. If the Skyrim mods are any indication I see myself playing a lot more portal 2 in the near future!

I thought this was coming out in May. My bad, carry on. Seems like poor marketing to be this vocal about a game when it's who knows how far off.

Very disappointing that you cannot play the game without paying $60 first. The one day headstart when you pre-order from amazon is something. I guess if I make the pre-order then cancel it I may get that 1 day free trial out of it but that seems like a lot of trouble to be putting a legit customer through.

I'll stand on the side line and see for myself what this game plays like. Seems like there is smoke billowing up from behind the wall...otherwise why not let people play it risk free?

Black Ops 2.

Thanks, we know. Same Engine and assets though right? Maybe you can try something new and ship only 5 MP maps and offer day one DLC with another 5 MP maps. Won't the fans be thrilled when you use that time during certification to make more maps!

You know I was half enjoying myself in the game, I had some minor gripes but the game was fun. Not fun enough to pay $60 for but whatever.

But then, without warning, Game Terminated.

Go fuck yourself blizzard. Apparently the server died or something because I was rudely stopped from playing and all I can feel at this point is contempt. Take this stinking piece of shit and get out of my sight.

Uninstalled, I say good day.

Still not working. Remember when game demo's just worked after you downloaded them? Sure am glad we're always online now. This is much better.

Going to go play Wargame: European A...something. Tanks blow shit up. Wargame: European Escalation. I wish that had more air power...expansion hopefully!

Error 75...battle.net is unavailable, try again later.

Seems like that is not what you want people to see from an online only game.

listen & read all quest and flavour text

Everything isn't voiced? Can you go into more detail on what you have to read? I despise that fluff text that they throw up on simple quests as if we're here to read a novel.

So many MMO's do this and I don't get it. Keep it short and sweet. 3-4 lines to explain what is needed and voice the rest.

This is one of the things SWTOR did right, getting missions was pretty entertaining...sadly they forgot to spend any time on the actual missions...feels so stupid to spend all that time on a mission briefing then it's just a fetch quest.

Why not split that effort so you had shorter briefings and better mission content?

I think swtor would have been a much better game if they'd stopped making the content (storylines) at level 30 and went back and improved those missions up to that point. In the IA storyline there was an event that happened around 30 that I felt was a good place to conclude the story and then it dragged on for 20 more levels. Would have been a better game with higher quality content but less missions/planets.

Yeah I think so, beta starts at Noon Pacific, 3pm Eastern. 3.5 hours to go still.

It downloaded really fast...I'm expecting this to be a very short demo.

Got a corruption error on pack0.dzip when installing the patch downloaded via the launcher. Lots of others having same issue.

Redownloading part 1 and 2 from http://en.thewitcher.com/ee_manual/ solves the issue.

Oh my, thank god. Didn't want to have to reinstall the game and then re download all of that again!

LOL at the Xbox Live monetization. I'm letting my gold account lapse in a few months. Nearly the only thing i use my xbox for regarding live is watching movies on netflix. I've started using HBOGO recently but I'm not feeling like that is a reason to continue paying for it. I don't play anything on a regular basis online, and I can watching netflix on my ps3. I think I can watch HBOGO on my pc as well, never tried it. Was nice to be able to watch Game of Thrones last night in "HD" at 6pm pacific...that is something I guess. Assuming I can get that elsewhere I think my days of paying MS to have a gold sub are over.

News Comments > Op Ed
6. Re: Op Ed Apr 16, 2012, 13:26 Tumbler
 
All I can know for certain is that my personal spending habits on AAA titles has dropped off a cliff. This is partly due to the CF that is ME3, the ever expanding nonsense with DLC (console DRM), the lack of cash back coupons through amazon, $20 used to be common, not it seems to be $10. Smaller titles are starting to come out for much less money as well, Legend of Grimrock for example.

I've already decided I'll just wait for used copies of newer AAA games to show up rather than buying them at launch. Canceled my Pre-order for BL2, passed on the prepurchase offer for GW2. $60 is so rarely worth it and the only titles I find myself content with are titles I buy well after launch when reality has taken over the hype.

And Kickstarter. It's really nice to spend money and feel you're going to get something "worth it" in the end. Even if the only things I end up with are T-shirts and poster and misc other crap I think I'll be happier than I am with most AAA titles in stores for $60.

News Comments > NPD Reports March Decline
5. Re: NPD Reports March Decline Apr 13, 2012, 12:23 Tumbler
 
Looking at the games on that list I'm not surprised. The industry is pumping out too much shit. Even if they were all great games and half of them were new IP's they'd still be overpriced at $60. When most of the games are just recycled crap that makes them even more ridiculous at $60.

I bought Legend of Grimlock for $12 and I'm pleasantly surprised by that game. I'm pouring insane (for me!) amounts of money into kickstarter projects.

I think I'm going to cancel my borderlands 2 pre-orders...too much to play to waste money buying AAA games at launch.

I'll give them credit for this, they're trying to work with players. I wouldn't think about coming back without a free trial and now they'll let me play till the 19th for free now.

It's a shame this doesn't include more match finding improvements though because they only thing I'd want to do is play pvp for a bit. The operations and flash points are still too difficult to get games going. (unless I missed some improvement?)

And I liked doing space missions while I was leveling my characters and was hoping at 50 they'd make all the missions have some reward that you could do once a day. Last time I was in there was only 1 mission that earned you that daily commendation thing.

I don't see fixes for ilum...so no point in doing that. What good is the legacy system when everything you do with the characters is still the same as it was?

*Watching trailer* There are a few other new features, ui can be moved around, appearance can be changed a bit (colors?), some other misc stuff.

Once they add all the operations and flashpoints to that little button you use for pvp I'll be back. I have no interest in spending my time trying to form groups to run those missions. (which seem to be the primary thing you do at 50?)
