It's amazing how fast things get shipped now, ordered a Korean 1440p monitor off ebay and it arrived in three days.

Yup, my distributor is in CA and I get my games overnight. I order at 6PM EST pretty regularly, and the box is at my store by 11AM the next day. (Before I am most days.) CA to PA in 17 hours. You'd be lucky to fly there so quick yourself.

Re: PS4 failure - ZOMG! The SKY IS FALLING! Oh, no, wait. They are basically PCs now more than ever, with off the shelf parts and off the shelf problems. I doubt you will see anything like the failure rate on the original 360s.

Mine finally shipped early this morning. I've already got Killzone in hand. After reading the reviews for Knack I am so happy I did not get that. (It looked boring to me even during the E3 previews.)

I watched a stream on knack last night, and thought it looked fun...not GOTY or anything, but way better than the 4/10 it got...


It looks cool as a demo, but the negative reviews are largely due to brain shattering boring gameplay. 1 attack button, press repeatedly. No block.

inFAMOUS: Second Son in February. I just keep chanting that to myself.

I should get around to playing the other ones on the PS3, considering I have them. Maybe after GTAV, SR3, and the X-COM expansion... sigh...


If I were to buy a system now, it's easily the Xbone. The PS4 offers nothing right now. The Xbone offers some really cool TV features that fix 90% of what I hate my cable box for. If it had DVR functionality I'd buy it. But it doesn't, and since I don't have to buy anything right now, I'm not. I will happily wait for games. PS4 has some sweet ones coming. That Call of Duty with Mechs, though, is the game that will probably get me to finally buy a system.

I'll own both. But neither has me excited right now. The last system I bought (or was bought for me) at launch was the SNES, so it's not a huge surprise. And I spent the first 6 months with the SNES playing the NES more, because it had the better games coming out.

Titanfall is coming for the PC as well.

Had both the Xbone and PS4 on order since June 10. (Basically since they started accepting pre-orders.) Annoying that others have shipped but mine has still not. Oh well, as long as I get it Friday.

I only worry about LotR stuff because I have seen what suddenly opening the floodgates can do to an IP. Star Wars? Timothy Zahn did an excellent job with the first book series. Of course, he had Lucas watching over his shoulder and a bible of things he could and could not do. After that Lucas pretty much decided he no longer cared enough to oversee any of it and the shit started dribbling out. It's so diluted and most of it is complete hack work.

Sure, PJ took liberties with the movies, but a lot of it is from the appendices of LotR and he just expanded those a bit to make a brilliant set of films. War in the North wasn't bad, but now are we going to start seeing them flail the Middle Earth properties into crap? Check it, this guy died and now he is like a badass ringwraith, but a good guy! Oh FFS, what's next? Darth Vader's...er, Sauron's Apprentice? BARF!

We sell the @Games Genesis you guys are talking about. It's nice because it will also take the old Genesis carts. The wireless controllers are complete shit, however. They are IR, like a TV remote, so if you aren't pointing them right at the console they stop working.

I've had a lot of people come back and snap up Genesis controllers to plug into it because the wireless ones suck that bad.

Any of you notice that the PS4 version of AC4 says it has 60mins of additional gameplay? What's that all about?

It's a PS4 exclusive mission.

PS3/PS4 exclusive. AC III had that too.

How many times have gamers gotten themselves twisted up into a knot over some legalese in a fucking Terms of Use document for no reason?

Idiot gamers who don't have law degrees shouldn't even be reading that shit. They aren't qualified. It's written for lawyers, by lawyers, and is generally full of copy pasta boiler plate shit designed to provide as much ass-coverage as humanly possible.

Yet you have a bunch of unqualified idiots trying to parse them for reasons to get outraged.

You don't need a law degree, but you DO need to know how to read legal BS. I'm a long way from a law degree, but my degree required some law classes, which were really helpful in deciphering legal BS.

This happens with everything though. For example, someone on the NY firearms forum started reading the firearms laws of NY and freaking out thinking that every firearm they owned was illegal because of the way the law is written. Some of us tried to tell him that you need to read the definitions section before the section of law to know what they actually mean, but he didn't believe us and ended up wasting hundreds on a lawyer who basically told him the same thing.

NKD is right, this story is just someone trolling for hits on the website. They read a section of a EULA that they probably know doesn't mean what they are saying it does and posted it up anyway to generate controversy.

Only 8 games for ps4 out of the gate?

NES launched with 18.

/I say 8 cause some dude on Twitter posted 8 games and claimed he got them all? They are on what I can only imagine is on his bed in his mom's basement.....

Bunch of PSN games coming that actually look more fun than the BD games at the stores. I dunno, I was waiting for Watchdogs and Driveclub, so I'm still wondering what to get to test the system out.

This IGN Wiki page has them all listed. http://tinyurl.com/khsjq7j

Really? Check that link out. Cash shop. You can buy in-games pets, mounts, etc. It has been around for a long time.

There is no in-game cash shop in WoW. Why not link to Amazon or Ebay where people are selling loot cards from the card game and call it a cash shop because they have items you can get for the game? You can buy XBL avatar items and DLC from Gamestop, are they a cash shop too?


Yeah, I got nothing. You went full retard there. Game over, man. GAME OVER!

Not as ignorant as you think. WoW already has a cash shop in place, which they use to generate profits IN ADDITION to sub fees. They would literally have to turn off subscription services and just start putting more stuff on the cash shop in order to pay for the servers.

Wow doesn't have a cash shop. I think they might sell boosters in China or Korea or something like that, but the NA servers don't have anything like that.

I guess we have very different ideas about what constitutes "frequent", particularly as it applies to when one pays a monthly fee for a service.

Not to mention that "have to rework the game pretty significantly to make it f2p".

There's nothing to rework, remove the price tag, done.

Christ I hope you don't run a business.

There are tons of games doing that very thing, so don't tell me WoW can't. They WON'T because, derp, they make a fuckton of money that no shareholder would approve of them giving up.

I absolutely agree with you. (Odd, I know) Compared to the updates GW2 does (every 2 weeks!) WoW is ridiculously slow to update.

I thought Pandaria WAS an original idea. No one liked it.

Anything using existing lore and people bitch that it's rehashed and lame. Anything new and people bitch that it has nothing to do with Warcraft.

No, we went to Draenor already. It was in the Burning Crusade. Of all the things we still haven't seen them bring into WoW, we get more Draenor? Come on.

And I never said Pandaria wasn't original. I never bitched about it, I actually thought it was a cool idea. I just never finished because I am so bored with WoW right now.

After watching the trailer again, it seems to me like they pulled the A team off of WoW to work on whatever they have up their sleeve, and now we have the B team trying hard to keep WoW relevant.

Really? Heh, the Panda's didn't give you that feeling?

No, because Warcraft fans had been asking for Pandarans ever since they did the April Fools joke for Warcraft III. MoP also had a full CGI trailer when it was announced, along with a new race and class, plus a lot of expanded and new systems in the game. (pet battles, etc.)

This just looks cobbled together and rehashed.

Let's go to Draenor!
Uh, guys, we did that in the first expansion.
Oh, right. Let's go back in time to the original Draenor!

Blah. And I looked at the improved character models and didn't see much of a difference. I guess I could go and look up an old model, but if I can't tell right away, then it really isn't a big enough difference to matter.

This will probably be the first expansion I don't even buy. I probably shouldn't have bought MoP either.
