And....Ghost edition reserved at local Gamestop.

BTW, this is the 2nd time a famous race car river has been in the store when I got there. Also the second time I had that pointed out to me after the fact and was still clueless. At least I recognized the first guy's name, even if I couldn't pick him out of a crowd. (Dale Jr - my stepfather was a huge Nascar fan. He held the door for me when I was walking in. No clue.) This guy, I can't even remember his name an hour later as I am typing this. I guess gamers who don't like televised sports are rarer than I thought? I get looks like I am nuts.

Oh, like the PC gamers felt when Halo 3 and on failed to ever appear on PC? Cry. Me. A. River.

Microsoft screws everyone else on a ton of games with their time-locked DLC BS, so Sony started responding in kind. Seems fair to me.

Man does destiny look to be a shallow mess. Also reminds me of that very worn-out IP... and no, not that one you think about when you see "Bungie"...

The weird thing about Destiny is that it looks boring from the outside, I had the same attitude before the alpha. Game didn't really interest me and I only grabbed the alpha on a lark. The alpha really turned me around though. It is probably the only console FPS I've ever enjoyed and even though many elements of it are derivative, they've managed to combine it all into an enjoyable package.

So yeah, Destiny is actually pretty decent.

You expressed my general feelings as well. I was interested, but was waiting to see if it was just hype for Halo players or was actually a good game. Pleasantly surprised.

That TOTALLY sounds like something I'd do for GTA.

X7, I may try and hit you up during the beta...


I will be there. Hoping by tomorrow I can get the store to pre-order the CE for me so I can pick it up at Midnight release, but I used the code from my online purchase to register beta already. Can't wait.

I played the Destiny alpha, and I came away impressed. It was an enjoyable game. Preordered after the alpha, was on the fence beforehand. I wish it would come to the PC, but it's the first game my PS4 has gotten any action from that wasn't TowerFall.

Oh, and my PS4 died during the alpha. Had to roll out and buy a replacement, which died as well. Still have my launch day 360 for all the hubbub about that red ring shit, I'm surprised that two fucking PS4s died within a week of each other (conditioned power, too)

Good lord man, what are you doing to them? And each one should come with a one year warranty.


Yeah, you literally cannot own a PS4 yet that isn't covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

Watch Sunset Overdrive's intro cinematic, 8 minutes of gameplay.

The one xbone game I wish I could play...


From the gameplay vid I'd have to ask "why" Pretty non impressive

The static pictures looked great, but yeah, once I saw 20 minutes of gameplay I decided that it probably would not be for me.

Yeah, gamestop? Uh uh...


My plan had been to pre-order from Amazon. By the time I got up (it was late, I am sick as a dog.) and read the news, Amazon was no longer taking orders for the PS4 version. I even checked with Best Buy before settling on Gamestop. I have about $70 in credit there still. (Watchdogs and The Last of Us were already fully paid up) I've been using it mostly for game time cards for ESO and Gems for GW2. I just hate dealing with the guys at the local store.

Good God, Gamestop is frustrating. Drive 10 minutes to store. NOBODY employed at the store has heard about the Ghost edition. You work in a game store and none of you read the gaming press? O..k...They look up a pre-order for me. Nope, not available yet. Dude, seriously? You know Amazon is sold out of PS4 pre-orders right now. I need to get this reserved so I actually get one. They tell me to reserve the regular and I can change it when the CE is in the system. Yeah, no.

Pre-ordered at Gamestop online. Of course, they don't do free release date shipping. Hell, they don't do ANY free shipping, not even to a store.

Anyway, this is the last of my credit there, and I hope to avoid them like the plague from now on. They banned me from trading in anyway.

Ghost edition of Destiny announced, along with Limited Edition and start of Beta access. (07/17 for PS4) Ghost Edition includes their version of a season pass. Excuse me, I have to run to Gamestop.

I can't tell if you're genuinely excited, or being facetious.


Excited. I got to play the Alpha on PS4 and it was a lot of fun. I'd prefer any FPS be on PC - in fact, I can barely play them if they aren't - but Destiny actually felt decent on PS4. No where near the spot on precision of a mouse, but way better than anything I have tried before, including Killzone on PS4. It had a bunch of stuff to do in a little area, the co-op was great. Just a lot of fun.

And I'm addicted to Collectors Editions.

Nin - yeah, it's a bit pricey, but you get a cool case, the Ghost model, and the 1 season of DLC. Those are normally $20, so it's really more like $130. I don't mind over $100 if it has a statue or something. The new Dragon Age CE is appalling because of the price and the lack of anything really solid for the price.

Also because it's Bioware and I'm not even buying that game for full price after ME2 and DA2 and SWTOR and...

Ahahahaha "wahh women can have women-only things why can't men have men-only things wahh JUST LET BOYS BE BOYS abloobloobloo"

You have got to be kidding me.

Fucking Hearthstone isn't a manly game for manly people that demands only men play. Neither is Dota or Starcraft. Video games aren't inherently manly or whatever the hell.

If you want a men's only tournament, go make an explicitly men's only tournament, ignore the criticism and scorn of the world at large, and enjoy your sausagefest. Meanwhile eSports will make an attempt, however ham-fisted, to be all-inclusive and be a better thing for it.

Incidentally, there's ladies nights at bars because that brings women into the bar when they otherwise wouldn't bother. You don't need a men's night at a bar because men don't need the extra incentive.

Yeah, no.

Do not understand gender segregation in video game competition.

Okay actually that's a lie, I understand it completely: the people in charge, and sadly most of the competitive community at large, are sexist idiots. Like that one dumb bastard that insisted sexism was part of the culture and 'this isn't North Korea, I can say what I want' then followed it up with leering at one of the competitors through a camera.

It had nothing to do with sexism, unless you count regular sport gender segregation as sexist.

However their new segregation rules "Open for All" and "Women's Only" is definitively sexist. Not to mention retarded.

Same shit, different day.

I see all sorts of women only events all the time. You put up a men only event, people lose their shit.

Edited to say: Ladies night. Bar I worked at. Woman asked me why we didn't have one. I asked why we shouldn't have a men's night instead. "Men's night," she scoffed. "Every night is men's night."
"Bull. Shit. Lady," I said. "Every night is lady's night. When is the last time some guy bought you a drink? No, don't answer. I see you in here every night getting free drinks. When's the last time you bought a guy a drink?"
"Well, it doesn't work that way."
"Uh huh, and that's why every night is lady's night. Pay for your drink and let me serve the next customer."

Just picked this up on the Steam sale. Ep1 was fantastic. By the time I get to 5, it will have been out for a week or so. I need to do this with TWD too. And Borderlands.

Shit, these guys make some good games.

The pizza article is a little scary, but also hilarious... the idiots sent the letters out USPS.

Just goes to show that all the digital anonymity in the world can't save people from themselves.

So dumb in a myriad of ways.

You mailed physical evidence. I'm guessing you weren't smart enough to wear gloves or not lick the envelopes.

You MAILED physical evidence. Even if you dropped it in an outgoing box, you still gave the FBI a great starting point.

You tried to extort small pizza businesses. I don't know about these pizza joints, but where I grew up at least half of the pizza joints were owned by the mob or their families. They would take this extortion attempt very well, I bet. You would wind up being a John Doe murder in the news in short order.

There are a bunch of lesbian couples in GW lore. Caithe was with the leader of the Nightmare court before she turned evil. Marjori and the bimbo, whatshername, etc. Marjori was clearly gay way back in the beginning of season 1. It wasn't clear if the blond chick was until the very end of season 1.

Anyway, I love that they finally put a new land in! SO happy to explore another region from the original GW.
