I actually see a lot of possible innovation and potential with the new controller. Whether third party developers will actually take the time to take of advantage of that remains to be seen, but there are innumerable possibilities that could make games like RPGs better.

I love Newegg. Just bought two HDMI cables from there for 4 dollars a piece, free shipping, and they got here in two days.

News Comments > The Old Republic Origin Exclusive, Intro Trailer Released [Updated]

I hope they don't do this with Battlefield 3. I don't really care about SWTOR as I have zero interest in it. While I do think competition is good in the market place, I think EA's idea of competing also involves screwing over customers, which (hopefully) won't work for them in the end.

I have 2 games on Origin, Mass Effect 2 and Burnout Paradise (got them both for free). The way it's set up is better than it used to be, it's becoming more like Steam.

The people who like gaming pie is growing. My mom bought Boggle and Sodoku for her Ipod. This does not mean companies cannot make a lot of money off their core audience. It just means that more people are going to buy more crap for a while, until they learn to differentiate crap from good games.

There aren't enough new turn-based strategy games. Wish this had been one. It still might be a decent FPS, I don't know, but I'd much rather have a new TBS X-Com.

Hmm... A game based on a movie. I wonder if it will be any good.

I suppose they are going to ask everyone to fork over another $50 for the game when it ships? It better be crazy good or they will be laughed at.

There were aspects of HG:L I did enjoy so I'll try the beta. But I'm frankly not expecting much.

Pretty sure it's F2P.

I'm trying it tomorrow (today now, I guess). I never played it the first time around, but I'm a sucker for any hack'n'slash with lots of loot. I don't like most of them, but I do try most of them.

This is a good move on their part. While at this time the technology isn't quite there, it eventually will be (including U.S. bandwidth). It's not a bad idea in principle, although its current implementation leaves a lot to be desired. I don't use the service, nor do I have any desire to, as I have a pretty decent PC, but I can see how this type of service would be relevant in the future. IF everything was instant/high resolution/no different than an incredible local set up, and the cost of a sub would be a lot less than upgrading, I can see it working.

It's like (or rather, will EVENTUALLY be) streaming Netflix. Yeah, you're renting the movies. But it's so damn cheap and convenient that it's just worth it. It all depends on their pricing structure, and whether they can compete with ownership vs. rental. Capitalism will decide the end result.

Don't do it. Don't give them any interest, or any money, ever. DON'T DO IT.

I hope Battlefield 3 kills COD.

EDIT: Unless the COD sub includes various kinds of hats, then I'm all in.

I've been thinking about making chili recently and I've heard you had a good recipe. Could you throw me the link? Is it REALLY hot? I don't mind spicy, but I like flavor moreso.

Based upon how many stupid things Square Enix has done recently (FF 13/14), I'm inclinded to believe the GRIN makers. They seem to have become an incredibly inept, naive company.

Wow, it's weird to think that Youtube is only 6 years old. How did we watch videos online before that?!
