It was interesting to watch my GFs reaction to a certain character coming into harm who she previously thought had plot armor. I've told her several times no one has plot armor in this series but oh well. It's also cool to see it diverging more and more from the books in some aspects, I guess as much out of necessity as anything else. Some people seemed disappointed with it online but I thought it was a great finale.

Happy Bday to Mrs Blue.

Loved the first game XCOM game and this seems like more of the same with some improvements to the UI so right up my alley.

That leaked survey thing has a whole section on collecting resources, thanks EA just what people love about your games - BUSYWORK!

Witcher 3 proved you can have meaningful secondary content without making it repetitive grindathons, why can't EA with its infinitely bigger pockets figure this out?

now Sony should make PS4 backwards compat. with PS3 titles. (HURRY UP!)

They've already remade several of the bigger titles and many others are on PS Now. With the newer consoles libraries starting to fill out it doesn't make a lot of sense to commit time to backwards compatibility. Microsoft is just trying to win the press release war, it makes little practical difference at this point. It's only first party games anyway, most publishers will not be bothering with it.

Really mixed on this because I loved the first game, by far one of my favorite games from last year but without Obsidian this has a high chance of sucking.

This looks alright, I'll definitely give it a whirl. I just hope it turns out better than the awful Rainbow Six Siege alpha I played.

I think this sort of creative game is well suited to showcasing VR, moreso than just lazy ports of FPS games or whatever. I'm very excited about seeing more unique games that are suited to the hardware. Anyways looks interesting but agreed with the others that need to see a playable implementation myself.

Also, just in case you have never ever bought a CoD game in your entire life, Activision is making the entire collection available as a bundle, just in case you wanted to buy them all in one shot. All of the games, and all of the DLC can be yours for the low, low price of $299.99. Allthumbsup

That's about what I expected from Activision hahah.

Looks so awesome, can't wait. Dark Souls II had some of the most entertaining PVP, the covenants were so fun. PC port had a few small warts but overall was fine for me. Now I just need to put the finishing touches on Bloodborne run #2.

I think making people pay and still forcing ads is probably the biggest reason, especially since the competition does not. If you're going to force ads on the pay option, have one short ad at the start and that's it. I agree that the limitation you mention is just stupid as well.

Agreed. A lot of people are just used to an ad free experience on Netflix now and good luck getting them to go back. If I'm paying a premium then I want an ad free tier, no silly device restrictions and other nonsense too. Hulu+ was stupid, I could watch some stuff from a PC and other stuff on a tablet but not on other devices. I found it a bizarre experience overall, I kept hoping the cable networks would sell it but they changed their mind at the last minute.

Supposedly the Xbox One version will have mod support? Fucking weird. How will that even work? A simple NPC mod could bring the system to its knees.

If I was married to Anna Faris and worth millions I might say I felt a bit blessed too.

Holy shit at those ebay auctions, people love collectibles. $300 for that is madness.

The flying beer catch is an instant classic, the casualness of it is great.

What article is that?

I recall an interview where he said his childs recovery after premature birth restored his faith in god. Like many actors in Hollywood hes religious but I've never really seen him be anything but humble in interviews.

I think hes funny but not as talented or well rounded as other actors hes been compared to like Harrison Ford.

Guys, you two seem like some of the more intelligent and sensible posters here.

Why would you pay good money to go see Jurassic World???

Do you really like dinosaurs or something?

Err don't you have a girlfriend? Between the choice of seeing Pitch Perfect 2 and Jurassic World on movie night, I chose Jurassic World

Yeah Far Cry 4 was awesome. They improved on everything and did away with a bunch of annoyances. Its your typical Ubisoft open world game filled with repetitive tasks but its one of those sum of its parts games.

Without getting into spoilers I thought it was pretty average. The visual effects were impressive, the score was alright but the plot and characters were pretty ho-hum. Action was above average. I don't know, we probably shouldn't have seen it the week after seeing Mad Max. Completely by the numbers summer movie fare.

Also ketchup guy is a tool, pointless shit like that is the reason why I will never bother with rental properties of my own.

They're referring to "active" video games using the Kinect like Just Dance and whatever else. It's still total nonsense and ignores the important face to face socializing that people do in sports but whatever.
