Maybe Amazon is going to start offering a lower price on specific items if you are a Prime member?

This part of it is true. Prime members now get 20% off all pre-orders and purchases of new games up to two weeks after release. That still doesn't explain why they would refuse to sell to non-prime members. If anything, selling to non-prime members makes them far more money.

This is an extremely weird decision.

He says about 1900 times how horrifically they failed on Titan, but never actually explains a single word about WHY it failed. What about it was a failure?

Hehehe.

I don't mind, to be honest, because now I don't have to choose between Uncharted 4 and this.

I don't really feel that every genre needs to have RPG elements. Hotline Miami had none and it was great.

...wall of text...

I agree. It would be amazing if it was a Diablo clone with automatic weaponry.

I think that was called Star Siege, and it was pretty bad...

I'm fairly sure SCOTUS already upheld the Doctrine of First Sale in previous cases where physical items were concerned, so I'm not TOO worried about this yet.

But (bleep) the judge(s) who ruled in favor of Lexmark.

If someone cancels over a measly $2, they have a strange sense of value. Plenty of stuff on there to watch and if you were to pay individually for the different episodes of a series or individual rentals of different documentaries or movies, you would rapidly go over $10. But hey, if they feel like their 'stickin' it to the man' by canceling their sub, more power to em I guess.

Holy shit, it's Admiral Gloval!!

Where's Rick? And Lisa?

It's Rambo First Blood, except Rambo has a darker tan, set in New Orleans, and the PTSD starts right at the beginning of the movie.

That sums its appearance up pretty well, yeah.

Can't wait for this one.

I'm torn. I loved M2, but the first gameplay video for this one didn't instill a lot of confidence.


Yeah it looked like incredible mediocre console shooter fare, with ridiculously over the top "gritty violence" tacked on to make it seem exciting.

That, and I can't say no to this (full screen that and crank it up)!


That is a pretty damn awesome sequence, not gonna lie.

(though at several points Drake clearly shoots a guy in the freaking head and the guy just keeps going. Sigh. Same shitty combat it seems...)

Not after the grandfathered $7.99 subscriptions go to $9.99.

There might be some people to whom that's a big deal (and I don't judge), but all in all, the large majority of people will still see plenty of value in 10 bucks a month, and that increase in collected fees will more than offset the few people who will quit over it.

In any case, I'm surprised it's only twice as many subscribers. Just on customer service alone it should be 50 billion times as many subscribers, but of course Netflix doesn't have a government-protected monopoly in a huge number of states they can abuse at will.

Alright, thanks guys. I may just skip the whole thing, and hopefully they'll have learned some lessons for 4 (which admittedly looks fantastic.)

So for those who have played the entire series so far: I've been playing the remastered versions, still in the first game, and it's such a ridiculous slog. Nigh endless waves of enemies, you have two weapons with pathetic amounts of ammo, each enemy takes three or four shots to put down (even from a fucking assault rifle)... I've had several battles already where I just plain ran out of ammo.

Does it ever get any better in games 2 or 3? It's just terminally boring to have to sit through five waves of 5 mercenaries Every.Single.Fucking.Screen.

The puzzles and story are good, but the combat, ugh... If 2 and 3 are just more of the same, I'll probably just watch the story bits on youtube.

We're looking at smaller games and launching them at times of the year where we stay away from that massive fourth quarter craziness

Common sense? From GAMESTOP?

I also think a HD port of RDR to PS4/PC/XBone may be coming,

God, I hope so. I'm even hoping that Rockstar will go "Pre-order RDR2, and we'll throw in the RDR-HD remake for free!"

I will pre-order so fast, it will literally break the space-time continuum.

That's solid work there by Oculus. Nothing better than screwing over your pre-order customers in favor of higher priced bundles.
