  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic A large number of staff members laid off from Gamespot! on the System Wars board.

    Maybe all the people laid off can form another site of their own, and then it can merge with Gamespot in a year or so. They could call it 'Sizable Explosive.'

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic PS Now Walkthrough video on the System Wars board.

    If you can't play them forever for a lower-than-retail price, I see absolutely no appeal here. And old games should cost no more than a few dollars. To own, not rent. This may be viable for some, b...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic A large number of staff members laid off from Gamespot! on the System Wars board.

    I'm not sure if what follows is accurate, but this is what it 'feels' like has happened here recently. About a year ago, the site's management felt that the community had gotten out of hand with hat...

    Yes, but it's relatively pricey.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Which console has the best user interface? on the System Wars board.

    I know I'm not going to be in the majority here, but I do love voice commands. Saying the name of a movie I want to watch, doing internet searches by voice, and snapping to weather.com while watchin...

    I don't know if I will play part two, honestly... the original was such a letdown.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic What makes PC versions of multi plats so much cheaper? on the System Wars board.

    Digital PC versions aren't resold, resulting in more more profit for developers. This results in a reduced cost to consumers - especially over time.No need for publishers to pay for rights to appear ...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic God of War vs Uncharted. Which do you find better? on the System Wars board.

    @foxhound_fox said:God of War actually had pretty solid gameplay, despite being highly derivative. Uncharted was just average across the board.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Sony's PlayStation 4 can now play 3D Blu-rays on the System Wars board.

    I like 3D... can't wait to get the final Hobbit movie on blu ray. But what will keep me from watching 3d movies on my PS4 is the lack of universal remote support. The PS3 supported it right out of ...

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Steam once again shows consoles how its done. on the System Wars board.

    That's neat... will have to try it. I know it's dumb, but I'd really like to get a built in timer, so I could set an alarm for bedtime. I often play too late because I lose track of time.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic What are the positive for the 3 current gen consoles on the System Wars board.

    New controllers, streaming/capture, and multitasking/OS improvements.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Destiny Beta Now Open to All on the System Wars board.

    I like the beta, but I am really shocked at the lack of proximity chat, which was in the Alpha as I recall.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic Dragon Age: Inquisition Has Been Delayed To November on the System Wars board.

    Well at least there aren't 3 games coming out in one day that I want anymore. Shadow of Mordor and Alien Isolation are enough for me. I'm actually somewhat relieved.

  • donalbane posted a message in the forum topic What are Xbox One advantages? on the System Wars board.

    I'm a fan of the impulse triggers, exclusives and the dedicated servers. Other than that, all of the Xbox One's benefits - of which there are many - are ancillary to gaming. So if you are into havi...
