Yeah good luck finding one in stock anywhere.

Amazon is saying in stock right now, so if anyone wants one, now's the time to bite.

I need to debate whether I play enough games with joysticks to make it worth the price of 3 full games...

Jack Tretton is probably one of the few "corporate" types in the gaming industry who I would actually take seriously when giving his opinion on such things. He isn't the ex-CEO that got the job after being a CEO for the car industry or something. He worked his way up within the industry and within one of the biggest contributors to the industry. His perspective, given his experience, would be interesting compared to the "gaming journalists", celebrities, and "I haven't released anything good since the 90s" devs that Spike often turns to. That said....If he is to do something like this, I wish he were doing it for someone other than Spike. He might be credible, they are not.

Ahh yes, the "I could just state my position but I think I will do it and be a presumptuous, generalizing, condescending, and obnoxious prick about it" post. Good to see that those aren't saved strictly for Star Citizen threads. Balance is key.

For the sake of the game I am willing to say "okay, no gunpowder" and move on. No different than most fiction based entertainment...there is usually something that defies reality that you have to be able to simple shelve and accept.

A Team Fortress game set in a world like this is mildly interesting to me. I would at least give it a whirl. I can't say that if someone said "quick, list 50 games you want to see made!" this would be on the list though.

Very much looking forward to it. These games have their flaws but I found both of the other games enjoyable.

You do realise that Jesus is the most common name in the world today?

This... is not true. Unless by "in the world" you meant "in Peru".

I was going to say, Peru is the only country where that name is even in the top 5.

Dust is a cool little game. Most of us already have a backlog, but I think it's worth putting in the "someday" stack if you haven't already played it.

Hey guys, don't know if you've heard, but that moterfuckers PROFITABLE!

That news is so awesome. I think you should say it again just to make sure everybody knows!

I don't know if you guys heard this already or not, but the PS4 hardware is already profitable.

I think some of you, indeed most of you, have the right idea at heart. Nobody should tell game designers what to make and what not to make. I can agree with that premise at it's most base concept. The only real error (outside of the unusual amount of anger and defensiveness) I see in any of the presented opposition to Beamer's comments is the assumption that if everybody just stopped making a fuss over race or sexuality, or gender, or whatever it wouldn't be such a big deal. If that worked we wouldn't have any bigots, racists, etc in the first place. It doesn't work and it is the responsibility of those that are not biased or prejudiced to make sure that the future generations are raised in a world that has less and less room for those that are bigoted and prejudiced in some way. You do that through parenting first of course, but the culture, the media, and even our entertainment...books, movie, tv, video games...all of these things have to reinforce it.

My two cents.

I have a WiiU, but the handful of Wii games that I have don't have online functions. I honestly haven't even tried using Wii games on it.

I would assume, that since it'll run a Wii emulator, it won't work.

The WiiU doesn't use an emulator for Wii game compatibility, it's running a similar hardware architecture as the Wii and is binary compatible. There are some minor hardware/software differences that will break somethings of course..

So...sort of how they did the gamecube within the Wii than...

I think it was more due to their backend being hosted by Gamespy who shut down but I agree its kinda bullshit that they aren't implementing something else.

So even if a person buys a Wii U they can't play the Wii games online? This is my real question because some articles seem to indicate that Wii mode on the Wii U no longer has online functionality. Other articles seem to suggest that you can maintain online functionality with your Wii games by upgrading systems.

Does anyone here have any firsthand knowledge? Is it a game by game thing? I am not really affected by this whole thing other than not being able to re-download my Wii store purchases, but I am curious.

Yes, but that could possibly constitute fraud. If they knew it wouldn't be enough and took the money anyway. We'll see, but it looks like someone is going to be made an example of.

Not so much an example as a patsy.

Just add your BluesNews tag with any friend request please. I haven't had a chance to do anything but install yet, but I plan to take a look by the end of the weekend.

If the XBOX 360 or PS3 shutdown it's wifi..or even the PSP for that matter...the world would go nuts. Nintendo seems to be getting a pass from the majority of the press and customers. I know the reasons but I find it interesting.

I guess this is one way to sell some WiiU systems. If you want online functionality for your Wii game...buy a WiiU.

News Comments > Age of Conan Turns Six; Adds PvP Update

I could never make it off the island. Every major patch or expansion I revisit the game...every time I quit at or before lvl 20. There can be no doubt that they have made sweeping changes and dramatic improvements, but unfortunately they haven't made it into a game that can hold my attention. It feels like Funcom is doomed to making MMOs that look great on paper but fall flat in reality. (edit: it should be noted that in all fairness, having not made it off the island doesn't really give me a full picture of the game)

Some people claim Secret World is good...I have the same problem with SW that I do AoC. Can't get passed the early levels because my interest level just isn't maintained. It is like there is a secret MMO ingredient and they are missing it.

I have seen this in action as well. There are a couple of workarounds that people claim work, but no actual "fix" for the core problem. I don't have any first hand knowledge as to whether they actually work or not. One requires that you are aware of the problem existing before you actually make the switch from iOS to Android, so in other words, it's not very useful. The other one, and the one more likely to help people, is related to iCloud. Some people claim that if you delete your phone from your iCloud account your texts will start going through again. Again, I haven't tried it personally but there it is if someone here wants to try it.
