Anyone watching Evo this year?

The SF4 matches have been pretty great. Persona and Injustice are both cool to watch. Both MK9 and Smash Melee looked really dull to me though.

Watching some of the spammy stuff in MVC3 makes my blood boil but watching someone dismantle a Morrigan Doom team is bliss.

At least they 180ed on the Evo thing pretty quick. It was like 6 hours. Still sad their knee jerk reaction to free publicity streaming for a franchise using a game who's age can be counted in decades was CRUSH IT.

Seems like one of the few companies that actually makes legitimate extra content.

I wish I had the time to think about buying it.

Wow 1 million dollars for an extra button on your ship and another million for a tacked on arena mode.

Talk about diminishing returns.

A nice little meta interaction that's just time based like TF2 items? Okay, sounds good.

On first look, it seems like there aren't that many cards (Borderlands 2 only has 6 for example). Out of the Beta some of these cards retained value in the 1-2$ range but I think now every card is going to be way saturated. We'll see I suppose.

I don't rent games, I don't loan my games out, I don't buy used games, I don't trade in my games, and these seem to be the things people disliked about the drm system the most.

This is perfectly reasonable (okay maybe not the 4 decades of hating a company) but as we've seen with DRM on the PC, these sorts of things usually end up hurting people that they were never intended to affect. SecuROM, etc. and always online schemes greatly diminished the PC as a platform and ALWAYS affect legitimate users who have good connections and paid. See PC Microsoft LIVE, UPlay on AC2, and Diablo3 for recent examples.

re: Beamer Demon Souls had save locked to console but the game could be played on any ps3, you just couldn't take the save with it

Well internet it looks like our collective fury actually produced something useful for once. Just like the NSA, Microsoft was poking and prodding to see how far they could take things and now they know. I remain convinced that if they hadn't screwed up the PR so bad all of these things could have been implemented with only a slight murmur.

So right now we have pretty much the same consoles again, probably more similar than this generation. The price difference is big but Microsoft still has one trick up its sleeve- $100 off with 2 years of Live contract. Have to pay to play multi on both anyway right? That makes them pretty much the same price.

Ugh Demon Souls was locked to the console. I had one PS3 that lost the bluray drive (possibly due to a firmware update but never confirmed, could have just been the laser dying coincidentally) in the middle of a demon souls playthrough, probably at least 70% through my first run. Backup of everything and brought it over to discover that the one game I was playing didn't work. Bleh. Probably to prevent boosting armories since there was an online component but it should have at least just been linked to the PSN account.

Of course I went on the beat it 4 more times

If you walk into a Best Buy most of the AAA console games are sitting at $40 now if they've been out for more than a couple months. Seems like there's a pricing depression going on to move units even if the starting point is higher. This trend suggests that no one thinks increasing the base price is good for business right now.

Steam DRM is inconvenient (better not have to restart your computer if your internet ever goes down), that's for sure.

On the flip side, I haven't paid over $10 for a game on my Steam library since HL2.

If the Xbox decides to become like Steam, well, I already have Steam.

DICE has always loved monetization.

Their BF2 DLC packs were some of the first needless community splintering experiments I ever saw.

I played something called Shadowfall or something on an android phone. Third person shooter with free aim and locking. Moving and shooting was garbage but it was mostly cover based and there it played a lot like Manhunt. Looked pretty impressive so I think these things can turn out alright.

More to the point though, ha ha, massively trolled again! What the hell are they thinking? Why would you announce this right before E3? Its like going up infront of class to give a speech and letting a fart rip. Not good timing...

Also I hope they don't foreward canon with this. The last Castlevania put Belmont's climatic transformation into the lord of evil in fucking DLC.

Hopefully Sony will take full advantage of this and make sure PS4 is the obvious choice. So far I'm 100% PS4, 0% Xbox and I really hope it stays that way.

F MS.

Oh man MS gives Sony so much a lead here it makes me nervous, like now Sony could feel like it can retreat a little and do something shitty. I can just see some suit calling up the Gankai dept. "Sorry guys dont let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, we don't need you anymore, we're fine."

Amazing job MS. "Xbox 1again- Why do you keep buying this? We're just mocking you!"

In another generation all these features will be standard in both boxes though, but we won't have to worry about that for 10 years.
