Questions of robot rights and dystopian ethics don’t often hit as hard as they do in Freedom Wars, though once they do core combat gameplay loops should have you enslaved.

Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

Yeah who wants to have to go over there and sift through crap?

Not everything is from reddit. I try to pull things from other places but most other forums have people posting stuff from reddit.

Here's a link I posted in the other thread of the cpu and architecture behind the new consoles

I don't think any other new member has driven up their post count as fast since me lol. Back when he first joined I told him to keep at it and now no one gives him shit anymore.

It's like this weird hazing period for new members or something.

I'm gonna have to use that Kinect mod. Can't have people checking me out in my underwear while I play Halo.

Probably because new posters usually act like idiots. Some grow out of it, some leave.

Just like the ask the question:

Who else thought the CoD dog looked like shit?

No, really. It's unrealistic and ugly as fuck. Sims 3 has better looking dogs.

Awww I disagree Madster. I loved dog. He seemed realistic enough.

Plus his faceplate animation was great. That along with the noises he used to communicate, Ive never forgotten dog. I replay the half life series once a year, Its great now that a reboot of the original was done in the hl2 engine.

I just saw the xbox one reveal. During the entire thing I was thinking "So... how about those games?" All of those features are cool, but I don't buy a game console to watch TV and movies, I buy it for games.

I also like how all of the cheers sounded like they came from the same small group of people.

I would agree that a game system is for games, but the majority of my friends list on a daily basis shows most of them are watching Netflix, Hulu, MLB season pass, etc. So it's hard for me to crap on MSFT for steering towards more TV offerings.

Waiting for some games first.

The rest is somewhat unimportant to me, but then again im not the core audience Microsoft is going for.

Yea, but didn't they buy the Xbox for games in the first place? No one buys a Xbox just to watch netflix.

I'm sure the games will come, but introducing the console with all this TV crap was a bad move for them. From what they shown, their launch lineup appears really weak and there is nothing interesting on the horizon. Looks like the PS4 will win this holiday season. Personally, I wont be buying either because I am completely content with my PC.

As of late ive been using my Xbox to harbor Netflix anyway. I agree its a by-product of the system, but considering how its used as of late, i'm not surprised Microsoft is gambling to focus on a specific, more casual market.

I hate it, but the majority of the people I know who own consoles use them almost entirely for the non-gaming apps/services (and almost all those consoles are 360s). They generally only buy a couple games a year like the latest CoD or Madden. That is what mainstream "gaming" is now. I expect the X1 will sell undeservedly well in the US/Europe for that reason.

To be fair, if it was google that put out the always-on kinect, i wouldn't have any complaints.
Chances are google already knows me better than i do, so having it go straight to my favorite porn sites when i get my dick out would save valuable procrastibation time.

But that doesn't mean i want Microsoft to do the same. Google is evil, but they're evil with a purpose. Like a full-renegade shepard. Meanwhile, Microsoft are actually worse than hitler. Microsoft is The Joker and Galactus rolled into one entity, devoted to making the human race complacent enough that we have our Microsoft One Chips™ implanted willingly, so that we don't argue when we're sent to work in the mines.

I really hope none of my friends buy one of these, because then i'll have to explain to them why i set fire to their house and stood outside singing kumbaya.

Big data thinks it knows you. Say I go to the store to buy some baby stuff for my friend with a child using my debit card. Now big data thinks I have a child.

For the most part they are accurate but its still a assumption based on data.


As for google I had a lot of respect for them. What scares me is things that Eric Schmidt says these days
Google's Eric Schmidt: "Don't Be Evil" was Stupid
http://www.dailytech.com/Googles+Eric+Schmidt+Dont+Be+Evil+was+Stupid/article31544.htm

The Future by Google’s Eric Schmidt: Cyber wars, terrorism and ethnic cleansing
http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2013/jan/29/google-eric-schmidt-drone-wars-privacy

"Maybe we'll even see the world's first drone strike against cyber-terrorists." - Eric Schmidt
Hope all you hackers out there dont get painted as "Cyber terrorists" just for pointing out flaws in a network.

So i've started playing my PS3 again, to get used to the controller in preparation for this next generation.

Recommend me some good games i didn't already own and then sell.
Bonus points: Because the PS3 doesn't have region locking, i can pick up Japanese games from Play Asia if they're good. Also cheap murrikan games off ebay.

How can microsoft have chosen the name "Xbox One" and not even registered xboxone.com or xboxone.net?
