$630 original price. This is apple, which means if that software were on other platforms the total price would probably be about $250.

Except it wouldn't... Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro X, Motion, Compressor, and MainStage 3 are included. You can argue that similar software on Windows (Linux is sadly a non-factor here) should be cheaper, or that the Apple software should be cheaper if you want, but that is a good price for real content creation software on either platform currently.

I have to admit, though, that I never played Planescape Torment

*GASP* You need to get on that ASAP. There are quite a few mods that help it feel more 'modern' if you need any links. Torment is absolutely worth the play.

That's why you see some guys flourish on certain teams and do poorly on others. It's an entire mix of elements.

This is indeed true, but 'the comback kid' wasn't purely earned on the 49ers. And while Montana wouldn't have the legacy he does without Jerry Rice, "the catch" (for example) was to Dwight Clark - Montana could utilize pretty much any weapon and that is a huge part of what made him great.

I didn't even think of VR sports, pretty crazy potential for application there once they find a good solution

I would think even now they could do a very reasonable Quarterback Club type of game. Then again that could also just be my inner child wanting this to be great. I played a lot of Joe Montana's Sports Talk Football as a kid...

Breach is a pile of freemium crap (complete with randomized microtransactions), which is a shame

Ah, oh well :/

I was curious exactly what Breach was because that blurb doesn't really tell me, but I guess now I know.

Meanwhile, the new mode is laughable. Lacks all the drama and tension that CTF should have...

Leave it to Blizzard to fuck up CTF. A timer to pick up the flag? Really?

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I have been having fun with the mode. It has me playing again at least. Not every game's version of CTF has to be exactly the same anyway. It isn't like planting / defusing the bomb in Counter-Strike instead of just running over the bomb site was so game ruining thing that sapped all 'drama and tension' (the opposite really). Plus I feel like some of the class mechanics fit better this way. I have already 'flown' to a runner I was healing right before they died and picked up the flag and continued on to score. If I had been able to do that w/o any wait time I am sure people would just be complaining about that instead. Can't please everyone.

I do think new mode specific maps for this would be a much better idea.

If Overwatch is gambling then those silly random toy vending machines outside grocery stores. Oh, and packs of baseball cards, and every CTG ever. My goodness the gambling industry has our children!

Won't somebody please think of the children?!?

I picked up Halo Wars for like $7, got a copy for a friend. Had a GREAT time playing it co-op through the campaign.

It never seemed that interesting to me, but I am a sucker for good co-op. I will have to give it a look.

Ok, when people here say they dislike Windows 10, do you say they're "off" because they used to use MS-DOS?

First I would say you seem to be taking this very personally, but if Microsoft started making MS-DOS branded PCs in a time machine and shipped them back in the past and had much of anything to do with the origins of MS-DOS then... I guess so? Microsoft and Apple / NeXT are not really anything alike in what they made/make so you are reaching pretty far here.

Beamer wrote on Jan 18, 2017, 14:32:
the only thing in common is the logo...

The logos are nothing alike. What are you even talking about? Inquisitive Beamer put down the pipe and get some sleep buddy...

The Carmack quote is cute, but it seems off from someone who went out and snagged a NeXT rig for himself to work on Doom. Unless he just really dislikes the logo, Sculley, and/or Cook.

Then again, while I get the direction he took, the where he went to pursue it has always seemed strange to me.

NeXt != Mac.

Yes, if you want to be pedantic, but anyone familiar with the history of both companies would know what I was getting at. NeXT did merge into Apple.

I must be an outlier, but I can't think of any game I ever returned that wasn't because the media was defective (and I think even that only happened a couple of times).

Though I guess I would have returned Age of Conan if I could...

The 3DS isn't putting up numbers anywhere near the DS and that's with frequent markdowns major holidays to drive sales.

Um, the 3DS has something like > 60 million units sold. Is that as much as the DS? No, but that is plenty respectable. Also the only real holiday markdown solid out before it was even suppose to be on sale.

I know, I wouldn't mind having one for a sale price, but it just never really happens...

LOL @ nintendo.... they just need to realize when its over.

How so? They still rule the handheld roost that they are trying to tap into here and that is still a decent chunk of change. What I would like to see is a 3DS price drop (other than that holiday one that just went to resellers gaming their systems...), but with Sony asleep at the wheel I don't see that happening anytime soon. I still have my DS, and if it wasn't stolen I would still have my Advance SP (which I think had an even better lineup of games).

It looked interesting but it was VERY Japanese in its gameplay mechanics (lotsa boss fights). There was really nothing in the gameplay videos that seemed to set it apart from other games.

Well I think the intention was for it to be in JRPG style. Which was fine with me, it looked interesting and that is an underdeveloped market right now IMO. That said, I think the new Final Fantasy filled that void quite well. That is a genre and style I never want to see go away, but I also can only play so much of it at any given time.

While I really don't see the point of the program it isn't spyware and it doesn't make you use Facebook as a login. You can login with Facebook, but you can also just use a normal login that you setup with them.

Again still seems pointless, but calling it spyware is a bit much...

Is the PS4 that much better of a console or is Andromeda intentionally gimped on the xbone?

That isn't really a large difference. You are talking about 180 and both being capped at 30 FPS. I kind of preferred 1920x1200 monitors to standard 1080, but when they went away it wasn't because devices weren't powerful enough to power them..
