My question for her is what is your phone number? Dinner with me? You got beautiful eyes.

Even though I would like to have all systems this gen again, I still can't justify to get a xOne, even if the new models look pretty nice. So yeah, I'm afraid MS will lose the "more important" sales fight in the next months as well

Interesting.  I wonder which character will fill the role of Carth.

Sorry for the double post, I was too late for editing.


I really don't care for a new Tomb Raider. The last one was a strange Uncharted clone. The story about a fragile little woman massacring hundreds of men didn't make any sense. Those action packed cinematics filled with QTEs got old really fast, and the hand holding was infuriating. It felt like whoever directed the game was terrified of the prospect of someone being stuck for a single second.

Oh great... The new Bioware game had me going from intrigued to face palming in under 10 seconds.

I stopped expecting for much from Bioware after EA had bought them, and it seems they never fail to disappoint.

Absolutely more excited to play Tomb Raider. Now the question for me is which new console to buy Spring/Summer 2015. Getting a new PC this Christmas, and still have 500,000 games to play on last generation consoles. Saving the graphics breaking beauty games like Last of Us, Watch Dogs, and so forth for the new console purchase. Then again, they may look stunning enough on my new PC :D we'll wait and see!

NICE !!!!! glad for the MGSV PC confirmation to include ground zeroes!!! best news I've heard since announcement of TR: rising.


speaking of TR: rising, I knew it was't going to remain exclusive like I mentioned on yesterdays episode. the exclusivity is that it launches on xbox first during the chrsitmas holiday, THEN launches for the other platforms early on in the new year.

Bioware opting for the online shenanigans again -.- How many people wanted a MMO KotoR? not many. They wanted another single player offline mode with an amazing story, an engaging world, and well developed characters. Online games have a stupid amount of people all trying to look cool and unique and failing miserably.

I'm glad Tomb Raider will come out on more platforms later on. I loved the first and I'm not planning on buying an Xbox One any time soon.

Metal Gear Solid has become really weird these days. It just feels like they have no clue at all what the series is supposed to be about or where they want it to go. It becomes more and more convoluted every game that comes out.

What's wrong with bioware coming out with an online co-op game? Don't they know that we core gamers have no IRL friends? Now when I play this game I will be reminded how forever alone I truly am

Great. Now I have to avoid Tomb Raider spoilers for a year

Phil Spencer genuine???  This is the same person who towed the company line on forced Kinect and still believes in DRM.  He's as genuine as the average politician or used car salesman.

I'm most interested in Tomb Raider 2, which is what I'm calling it since that rise thing just sounds stupid.  If I can wait a year or longer to buy a PS4, I can wait until TR2 is out for it.

An episodic MMO huh. If it has a cohesive story, let alone a decent one I'll eat my proverbial hat. Looking forward to Tomb Raider on the PC though when it inevitably comes out in January after Xbox has secured it's Christmas sales.

Shadow Realm can do whatever it wants; so long as it is a co-op/MP game it may as well not exist to me.

Tomb Raider looks great, I loved the reboot. However, the timed deal sucks; even if I own an XBO when it releases I'll wait to buy it on PC, and I won't purchase any more Square Enix games until that timed period ends.

MGS could be cool? If it turns out okay I guess playing it on PC will be better than PS4. Kinda whatever about it though.

Thus, I have spoken.

Come on lets teach microsoft a lesson by avoiding the xbone, maybe next time they won't cheap out on the hardware like nintendo. You may call me a hater but every since microsoft tried to make the xbone online only I knew right then and there that they was going to fail. Now I don't wish they end up like sega but let this be a real valuable lesson for future consoles. 




Which is why I went with a pc this time around ; )

Microsoft is not the underdog. That would be Nintendo.
Microsoft is just the tittle runner that slipped up and now is running behind their biggest rivals.

Game exclusivity sucks but what sucks a hundred times more is when Microsoft betrays its own customers, MICROSOFT Windows customers by paying a game studio to develop for only their XB platform.


Microsoft = customer betraying scum.

I'm actually excited for all of the mentioned games. Exceedingly excited. I'm happy MGS is coming to PC again too. That's one less game I have to buy on my console. :)

Will there be a physical release for the pc version of MGSV??

Muliplayer on-line player-only games. . .Suck!!~!@!~!~!

Q.  Since when does anyone want to lose their autonomy and be 100% dependent on other people's participation to enjoy a video game?  

A.  Maybe that's an extroverts cup of tea



Phil Spenser

What a great mind job he's pulling off.

Just tell everyone what everyone already knows already. . .and get them to say Yes, Yes, Yes, we agree. . .He did a great PR job.

What he did is very basic.

Underdogs try harder because they have something to prove.  We benefit.

Lara Croft above the other two choices.  Snake isn't pretty enough.


Thank you Jess. And if Jess were in a video game, I'd take Jess over Lara.

1. Rise of the Tomb Raider, 2. MGS V: Phantom Pain, 3. Shadow Realms. I haven't played any MGS since it's not really been on PC before and I have 0 interest in the "online-only" junk that Shadow Realms will be.

Don't care about online only game with episodic Bullsh*t . And hopefully writing will be better in MGSV thanrecent MGS games . MGS 1 was legendary . After that , the series is going downhill (except MGS 3).

@Dannystaples14 MGS is no more weird than it was back in 98, anyways you told me months back that you never played them anyways.

@ECH71 xbox does things separately from the full company microsoft

@ECH71  If you're paying for a console not with the expectation of great first-party content, but an expectation that your favored company should be denying other platforms quality content, you're part of the problem.

@opellium_52 I doubt it. The last MGS game was download only, and most AAA physical games don't even have the game on the disc anymore, just a Steam or uPlay installer and a pdf manual.

@SaintsRowLA "Jess McDonell as the Game Raider"

WOW! I'd like to see one picture of that, perhaps? Or maybe I could create my own =D

Is it alright Jess? =)

@trfritzen I hate multiplayer as much as the next guy who hates multiplayer about as much as me, but it's not really being rammed down our throats. I mean, who gives a f* about Shadow Realm? A real MP d* move would be turning an established franchise into a co-op/MP based game.

@KiLLLeR150 Don't forget Might and Magic heroes 7 .

BTW MGS 1 and MGS 2 are on PC . You can play MGS 3 vis PS2 emulator . MGS 4 is only real PS exclusive .

@e5115271 @opellium_52 well, that can't be helped, right? with all the piracy and stuff. but i'm more of a DVD guy. either way, this game will surely kicks ass
