[QUOTE="1PMrFister"]Rare. There is no other answer.JML897Square, though Those have got to be the two best answers right there.
Ryan has been part of the group of critics I have followed and enjoyed since I finally got my own job and really got into gaming back in 2001. Needless to say, but still: it's terrible, it's awful, and life ca really suck sometimes. My deepest condolences to his friends, colleagues, and especially his wife.
It's the kind of awful that refuses comprehension.
the problem is that one comapny wants to own the entire economic food chain. you buy their console. you buy games they have specifically licensed. even when you buy a used game you have to kick over cash to play it. and they control the digital marketplace for their games exclusively. this is all about microsoft controlling how you acces entertainment and getting a cut every time you do so.
It depends on how much you want to get from the story. It's one of those plotlines that benefits from seeing it throug twice, but if you're not interested in that, there's no need to buy it. I bought it and don't regret it for one moment, but I was also very into the story and world of the game. It wasn't just fifteen hours and done for me.
I would love to hear a cogent argument about how any single company's consoles have "always been better."
I've always been with Sony because their consoles have always been better. After Sony's reveal a couple of months ago, there is absolutely nothing that Microsoft could do to change my mind. I hope it has online connectivity to play games aswell as a no used games policy just to laugh my ass off.Venom_Raptor
I'm not normally an early adopter, but this gen has dragged on so long. My body is ready.JamDevThis generation is certainly showing its age as pc versions of muliplatform games keep on looking better and better, but I still wonder what the next gem has to offer beyond shinier visuals. As Nintendo is finding out with the WiiU, you have to really sell someone on a reason to upgrade.
I was planning on skipping next gen, and still might, but that Deep Down trailer has me in the wait and see mindset.
My thoughts are that I have too many odler games I want to play. I have a decent backlog (consisting msotly of RPGs so it'll take me forever to get through) and there are bunches of older games for many systems I want to play. Meanwhile, I have seen evry little that excites me about next gen. Evil Within or whatever it's called (new Mikami game) looks like it might be good, but it could just turn into an action fest. Meanwhile, my favorite company, Nintendo, has awful support for WiiU, so it looks like it'll jsut be another console to have soley for the exclusives. If I ever ended up buying a enxt gen console, it'd probably be the PS4.
Although I will be getting a 3DS soon, not sure if that counts.I'm in a similar situation. I'll be getting the pop tart 3DS XL soon, and I've got a ton of old games I need to play still, or want to play again, or still haven't even bought yet. I could see holding off of a next gen home console until 2015/2016 easy, at which point I'd probably just rather have a new computer anyway.
