ATLUS makes some great admittedly niche strategy console games.

Agree nin, that might be one thing EA eith a new CEO could change == make Origin network game client go away and push their games to Steam. Only time will tell.

Meet the new guy, same as the old guy.

I'll be curious if there's any change on their push of Origin, as opposed to also using steam.

Kinda a big deal

Other devs are likely noting this and (hopefully) rethinking their future games.

techforge has some great tech coverage of the game.

REALLY nice to see the cruddy glowy, fuzzy-effects from GTA 4 completely gone in 5.

It definitely creates awkwardness when your guest currently is playing a game from your library and then you login, effectively booting him off during that game?? So it is a pass for me. Unless I am misunderstanding how it works.

Not remotely useful in real practice.

"simultaneous usage of an account's library is not allowed" = dealbreaker

Blue do you know Old Navy is now selling a line of jeans called "blues news"? Are you expanding into the fashion business?

The Vita TV is a genuine surprise -- it will be interesting to see if consumers readily adopt it.

It is easy for anyone to mis-speak. It is really all about saying sorry after the fact, and meaning it.

i cannot see them making another bioshock at this point -- the story has collapsed upon itself in several ways.

Bioshock under water
Bioshock in the clouds
Bioshock parallel dimensions

I guess there's still

Bioshock On Mars
Bioshock in caveman times
Bioshock in a blackhole

What they cannot say outright is anyone with even just one questionable travel destinations in her/his past simply wont get the privilege granted.

The whole thing is bogus of course, but I dont think they will be giving these out super trivially either.

The key problem with LinkedIn is not the $$ they now charge -- I tis that they are very intentionally turning the site into another Facebook. It really is maddening to see newsfeeds that I never ever want to see. You can turn off some of them, but not the main newsfeed.

I am half tempted to get off there but my previous staff use it for references and I acknowledge that is a useful component.

consoles in the longer term sink or swim on their games library. That is the real battleground.

The launches will be fun to observe no matter what.

I am beginning to wonder if we are witnessing the last gasp of the "non-portable game consoles."

Good to see some combat of the game. It is not for me -- looks like yet another MMORPG with cool-down timers.

I am not easily impressed and the "Tina" DLC was mostly brilliant. It actually tells a complete story and also a meta-story.

The other DLC's were stable -- and completely mediocre sadly.

If anything, those who want ESO will be even more induced to play it on PC and skip the console version.
