Have to add the immaturity of today's fresh blood is maybe causing a problem.

I NEVER roll tank first in an MMO - I put up with the wait times and learn the game. Then play tank. I'm playing FFXIV ARR atm and started a tank after my first dungeon as dps - because that first dungeon had THE WORST TANK EVAH!!!111!!!! whatever. Seriously the guy was so bad after only 8 hours into the game I thought - christ if he can do it I'll own this shit!

I'm seeing people called "Beyonce Knowles" and "Only Me" run past whilst getting guild invites from "Miley Cirus" looking for mature players.

I can hazard a guess into why this is happening but really please can we keep kung fu panda/miley cirus et all on the damn consoles???

Sorry for the people who enjoy it but their post does start:

"Skylords,"

I really can't take that name seriously - I couldn't even before I remembered Skylanders.

It's Borderlands 1.5 really. They didn't change much just tweaked and added a plot/protagonist really. It's the first game done right - but given I loved the first and have 242 hours in game for BL2 that's a good thing (a LOT of that time was leaving my mechromancer paused with 200 stacks whilst I worked/slept)

GTA and Saint's Row occupy a weird space in my game collection - for the shooting I use KB+M but as I hit E to hijack a car I switch to gamepad to drive.

I was the same way with flight in SR3. Thankfully, you could easily switch back and forth...


Yeah unless your shooting takes >10 mins and when you jump in a vehicle you realize your controller has powered down and turning it on crashes the game. No lie happened today - probably cause I smacked the xbox button with accelerate already held down.

I have 0 interest in GTA V on PC simply because Rockstar's ports are garbage.

I hope you guys are right and it comes to next gen before PC because I wanna play the game, I hate the PS3 load times and know it'll be a slideshow on my PC.

GTA and Saint's Row occupy a weird space in my game collection - for the shooting I use KB+M but as I hit E to hijack a car I switch to gamepad to drive. Only games I remember using both - even borderlands I drive on KB+M but they do some weird snap to mouse steering!

Honestly the last iD game I REALLY enjoyed was Quake 2. Quake 3 was fun - but I preferred Unreal Tournament. As for Rage? we all assumed Borderlands was a rip off of Rage based on the Rage's earlier release announcement.

But then BL came out first and showed iD how they could have improved things whilst using competitively weaker graphics.

Now we have BL2 which is generally considered BL1 done right - or BL1.5

So where does that leave Rage, iD and it's employees.

The last game they made that I enjoyed is 16 years old. Seriously my 14 year old daughter wasn't even born the last time I really enjoyed an iD game. I know that sounds like I'm stating the obvious, but picture all the nappies, learning to walk, first day at school etc right up to having a boyfriend for over a year. That's how long it is since I really enjoyed an iD game. Practically an entire childhood.

There is no doubt Carmack is a technical genius and I'm sure he'll bring a lot to OR. As for iD? it's franchises are worth more through nostalgia value then they are as sell-able properties. iD is PC's Sega.

Loved Far Cry 3 - hated blood dragon. That neon graphics mod made my eyes bleed.

Anyone else notice the Borderlands 2 Season Pass is still only 33% off - was 66% earlier in the sale!

Kinda off topic but from this announcement "Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft" and from Capcom's Strider announcement "Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft".

Has nobody told microsft yet that advertising yourself as 'an all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft' will turn consumers off in droves? This is like Philip's CDI all over again.

News Comments > MS Backtracks on Xbox One DRM & Region Locks

For me this is a huge announcement in a rather off tangent way. What it says is M$ will implement a last minute on disk drm which will be cracked very early as it wasn't built into the system from the ground up.

Why does that interest me? Not because I wanna pirate games - I'll happily pay for the exclusives. I just don't want to pay for the hardware - I have enough boxes under my TV and hate Kinect.

Once the hardware is cracked porting their x86 based software onto our x86 hardware should be childs play.

I like the idea of being able to pick up a copy of halo 5 and playing it on my pc!

Nothing of what you said invalidates any of my points. casual gaming and kinect helped sell the xbox 360. just dance 3, on the wii, sold almost 10 million copies. bioshock infinite on the 360 so far is less than 2 million. and bioshock,less than 3. You know what the best selling 360 game is? its kinect adventures. Casual gaming and motion games are driving the market. the wii sold 22 million more units than ps3 or the 360, and sold over 100 million more peices of software. Of the top 15 best selling games of all time, all 15 are nintendo.

*HUGS*

(quick everyone hug the troll or he won't go away)

Way to be pathetic, ESA. It's a hundred dollar console that plays phone game (and does so not very well), and you're being this pedantic dick in trying to stop people from noticing them.

I hereby move we nominate the ESA instead of EA in next year's "Biggest fucking dicks in America" competition.

Kinda of normal shite - 3 years ago my wife was coining it in as a webcam model. Her and 3 other UK models set up a lottery competition to win a day with them at an adult convention here in the UK. Unfortunately the other 3 girls turned up in branded wabcam site t-shirts and got escorted off the premises even though they had bought tickets! Luckely my wife wasn't in the branding and we got to be bored by the lamest exhibition I've ever seen.

The ejected girls were no threat and bought some much needed eye candy to a bunch of sad sleezy stalls but hey - they hadn't paid to advertise apparently.

But yeah long story short - event organisers are VERY protective of their event space.

All you guys do is bitch , and complain about what games, or systems your not gonna buy. and most of your bitching comes from absolute ignorance. Motion gaming and those casual gamers you hate are what keeps the entire games industry alive. Not the so called hardcore gamers. The wii sold 99 million units, and wii sports is the best selling game in history. Anyone with kids or grandkids will tell you what the most popular game in the house is. Its dance central. The kids move the furniture and play ALL DAY with all the sports games etc. The wii u is easily the most popular console in my house, its on constantly. Far more than my ps3 or my 360. Wii sports resort sold more than halo 3 and black ops COMBINED. Gow 1 and 2 sold 10 million together while the wii fit sold 22 million. More than double. Casual gamers and motion gaming have flooded the games market, and developers, with billions of dollars. While you stupid asses sit around and bitch about how motion gaming has added nothing, and complain about the next thing your not gonna buy. stfu already.

3 kids here - wii that never gets used, like seriously ever. Dance central got used like twice then 3 months later we sold the kinect while it still had value. Most popular game in the house? Little Big Planet 2 and Minecraft - and guess what???? They NEVER use the Move on LBP.

Big point for me is one never mentioned - M$ say it's down to the publishers. BUT they never mention what their own policy as a publisher is.

OFC EA is going to bring online pass back to the PS4 - but Sony have said they won't do that for their own games. M$ seem to be playing the line that their hardware leaves it upto the publishers, but their publishing division hasn't said a word about their policies for 1st party games.

Slightly more telling poll:

UK tabloid poll

If you just want the results it's 79% PS4 to 21% xbox one - with 20725 votes cast as I write this.

Interesting to note afaik the UK is the only place 360 has beaten PS3.

You have that incorrect. US is the only region that 360 has outsold PS3. UK and Japan sales are greater for the PS3 than the 360.

PS3 has barely passed the 360 for Global sales totals. They are basically neck and neck at this point. And, 360 has been out a year longer.

Did mean to say UK only place outside NA but I'm still not so sure PS£ is dominant in the UK - remember UK isn't a REGION. Can find lots of things saying 360 is strong in the uk but struggling to find actual hard numbers for the PS3.

This quote from the head of SCEE in 2011 sums it up:

“Whether you approach the UK from the perspective of our momentum, or the perspective of the competitive landscape, for us the UK is more like US than continental Europe. If you look across the PAL territory, where typically we outsell our competitors by around 50 per cent on a weekly basis, it’s inverted in the UK.
