Pretty fantastic sale intro video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJW_ML5aE9E
At first I thought that was just going to be a lame parody, but by god it delivers in the end!

The 75% hitting the guy in the head was the cherry on top...
No, the cherry on the top is the sound effect of the 75% hitting the guy on the head.

so how is that shifter confusing? i read a few articles but no one actually goes into detail about what mistake people are making. you just push it all the way up to go into park right?
It's like a joystick. You push it up and then it goes back to its central position. So if you don't actuate it correctly, it thinks you asked for neutral rather than park. It's not like a traditional shifter and locks into position.

Consolidation results in competitive products being withdrawn from the market so a company can just harvest on existing infrastructure? Hoocoodanode???

They didn't even wait until the body is cold.
Knee jerking aside, there's a real (and rational) explanation for this. Both networks are in the middle of doing pure digital upgrades (casting off the last of their analog channels) and the two networks need an aligned strategy going forward.

"Charter management said they'd be doing this back in April. The broadband upgrades are part of a general system upgrade, which includes going all digital for video (freeing up the spectrum that was used for analog video), which requires putting some sort of box on every TV. Time Warner Cable had been using very simple digital-to-analog adapters for this. Charter's being putting a full-fledged digital set top on every TV. So, they're putting the Time Warner rollouts on hold until they can restart the process using the full set tops (i.e. the Charter model)."

Seriously? People are paying a monthly fee to cheat? Rolleyes
Yes. Paying gets you the best cheats and the best tears as you make people rage at you. It's really the least surprising part of all of this, I feel. If people will pay for coins in mobile apps, they'll pay for anything.

This looks like a pretty standard stationary vr shooter to me. No character movement = no vomit. But also constrains the gameplay in a way that is already getting tired.
That would make sense. As otherwise I agree I'm not sure how you'd avoid getting sick on this one. But at the same time if that's the case, then this risks being a watered-down SS experience.

You know, push start, fight against evenly-matched enemies with good AI and a minimum of chaff in-between?
Seriously, how is there not an arcade mode by now?

Screw Disney. They really dropped the ball with TRON. The animated series was awesome.
Aye. Only Disney would cancel an Emmy award winning series. And then canceling Tron 3 production so late into the game was a real kick to the teeth.

RUN/r? Somebody translate this super clever pun for the grandad? Is it like /s only without any meaning because who cares?
RUN/r = Runner.

That you think EA gives a damn about this little website (sorry, Blue!) is amusing. That you think this is part of some 13 year conspiracy is disturbing.

Go outside and get some fresh air. You're tilting at windmills, Don.

Trailer didn't wow me (except for the stunt double), but there's still plenty of time...glad to hear there's single player, as the trailer almost looked like a class based online shooter.
Agreed. The trailer didn't do much for me - in fact I was afraid it was going to end up being a third-person MOBA (or BL2) - but since it's confirmed to be a SP game, I'm willing to see it through. At the very least I want to see gameplay, as cinematic trailers are often vastly different from the actual game.

I do feel a bit bad for Volition though. It's good that the Saints Row franchise has done so well, as it keeps them employed and these days makes them one of the longest running studios in the industry. However they've essentially become typecast into developing over-the-top open world action games, and I'm not sure whether that's a good thing for them. Variety is the spice of life and what-not.

As for the superhero thing, I guess we'll have to see what gameplay delivers. I certainly get the impression that these characters have SR4-esque special abilities, so it wouldn't be a reversion to SR3-style no-powers gameplay.

So turns out the guy who was banned, also has a wonderful history of attacking other players and was even arrested in 2013 in Orlando after attacking another player and his ex-girlfriend at a tourney. Not to mention he was also arrested on jury tampering charges.
Jury tampering? Wow, that's a special kind of low...

And it certainly deserves it. I can't think of any other game with the appeal, sophistication and possibilities of MC.
Agreed. It is a fantastic game all around, and it always brings a smile to your face to see an (originally) indie game like this become so successful.

No insufferable marketing, piecemeal DLC, or other shenanigans. Just a small, wonderful game that sold based on its possibilities and word-of-mouth.

BTW, the PC sales tracker is back up: https://minecraft.net/en/stats/ PC sales are just under 1/4 of the total, to give everyone an idea of the importance of bringing this game to consoles and mobile. (Though clearly the PC version is still the best version)

And the graphics have been noticeably downgraded since it was first shown. Honestly this looks like a 3DS title.
The 3DS wishes it could do that. The lack of pixel shaders is a big issue there. It can't even do Rayman adequately.

It's hypocrisy at its finest. If you're going to allow drug and alcohol vendors to advertise, then you don't have the moral high ground to stand on in the first place.

On the plus side, this is a good game. They even have Agents of SHIELD DLC where you can play as Patton Oswalt.
