This mode doesn't seem to justify a $30 season pass. $10, maybe, but $30? Not a chance. Then again, season passes are never worth buying at full price and they go on sale pretty quickly. At $10, most season passes are a good deal.

Yeah I can't think of a single "season pass" I've ever been satisfied with at full price.

We whined, begged, wheedled and cajoled him into creating one several years back, since we were "all going to use it a lot."

Sadly, that turned out to be a bald-faced lie, and we really never use it...

To be fair, it's not exactly the traditional forum that people had in mind in terms of features or implementation.

I don't really agree with your assessment of the situation but it's all moot at this point, Microsoft is going to do what they will with it.

They essentially bought the keys to the childhood of the digital generation. The lack of foresight or vision displayed by you guys in this thread is astounding.

As others have said, I don't doubt their ability to monetize Minecraft. I do doubt their ability to do it without going too far and affecting the game in negative ways.

Dead battery. Broken device, either physically (whoops, dropped it and cracked the screen) or via software (whoops, update bricked the machine). Publisher revokes access to eBook for any reason or goes out of business or DRM server dies, whoops you can't read it anymore (yes you can turn off Wi-Fi but that also cuts you off from getting more books). Can't easily lend a book to a friend. Hope you remember your password, or your account isn't hacked.

eBooks have perks but to call it better in every way is asinine.

I store all of my ebooks on my computer as well as my ereader. The lending thing is legit though. I prefer reading physical books in some situations and ebooks in others but ebooks are just way more versatile IMO. To me it's all just text, I don't really care how I consume it so long as its convenient for me at that time.

I do however miss cool covers on books, you don't appreciate them as much with an ereader and its harder to visually associate a book with an author.

Okay, good to know. I'm pretty happy with my 360 controllers. I prefer wired, so I would actually consider this if one of mine broke. Definitely want to see what Steam comes out with.

The 360 pad with the transforming dpad is probably a more suitable replacement. The Bone has a really nice dpad but it has some other stuff I don't personally like. I think the bumpers are worse, the triggers feel mushier than before, the rumble triggers are a non-starter and the analog sticks feel a smidgin too tall. It's very comfortable to hold but I don't like the controller features themselves as much outside of that.

Definitely go try one for yourself though, controllers are such a subjective thing. Most of the display controllers at big box stores are worn down due to overuse so maybe check it out at a smaller store with less traffic.

Why even bother making games for last gen consoles? What is the point?

They still sell a shitload of copies dude. The uptake on next gen ownership isn't there yet. I think Sony is the only one to even sell 10mil yet.

Is the bone controller really that much better than the 360 controller?

Nope. It's more comfortable to hold but I find other things to be straight up regressions from the 360 controller.

I've never heard of PT.

It's a free download from the SEN store, just search for PT sometime when you're between games. It's really neat, Hideo Kojima did a great job on it. Just be forewarned, its a real mindfuck at times and more of a horror/puzzle type game.

Honestly, the last time I was freaked out by anything in a video game was... the end of Metal Gear Solid? or... maybe Eternal Darkness on the cube? Or the blacked out hallway at the beginning of the original Unreal? Peek-a-boo scares are the only thing that elicit any sort of response anymore.

Clive Barkers Undying had a ton of scary parts, although it sorta loses its way at the weird supernatural monks stuff.

I've heard nothing but good stuff about this game but unfortunately I don't think it translates well into promotional material.

Well I can't speak for this but I played WoW just fine all through out launch.

I am really interested in checking this out but I need to do a bit more research, I am kinda weary of MMOs in general (even F2P) due to the time required.

I hate to say this but I think the horror genre is nearly dead.
Every single nightmare creation that could be thought of has probably been put out already. It's kind of like a seen that, done that type of deal.

Most games now combine FEAR, Silent Hill, and Resident Evil all in 1. It's kind of a Meh mix up.

This is coming from a hardcore Resident Evil 1 and 2 fan from the PS1 days... I LOVED those titles.

You know, I thought the same thing. Then I played PT on the PS4. Awesome atmosphere, good puzzles, scary as hell and totally restored my faith in the horror genre. Even if the new Silent Hill game ends up nothing like that teaser at least I know Kojima has some new stuff up his sleeve.

Maybe it's just me but this looks like another case of Microsoft telling customers what they want to buy. This is why the Xbone is getting hammered by the PS4, dumbasses.

Yeah I agree. I don't know what they were thinking by not offering a little wireless dongle.

A long time ago I used the arrow keys for movement but then I switched over to WASD and haven't looked back. I can't imagine wasting a mouse button on movement but whatever floats your boat I guess.

Edit: my bad I meant WASD

I actually don't care for the Bone controller that much. The 360 controller has a bit too much bulk from the battery compartment but other than that its really nice. I hate the Bone shoulder buttons, the sticks feel a bit higher than before and the rumble triggers are a total non-feature.

I prefer the DS4 and the 360 controller for my living room stuff, both can be used wireless as well. The lack of a wireless receiver for this is really lamentable.

I would love to know what feature people are preordering this for, I suspect its the name on the box.

Yes, but the kool-aid was served to the Apple fanboys by the Android users. They're the ones who convinced them that they had to have bigger screens.

I know few people who like growing screens on Android phones (any phones really), this is just an industry trend being driven by manufacturers who keep seeking reasons for people to upgrade annually.
