Great charity stream Jess.  After 17 hours straight gaming I hope you can wake up for the next GSN.

I would be mad about Titanfall not being on PS4, if the game didnt look like a big pile of rolling hype.

C&C F2P Online is really a very crazy idea to work. EA, go back to your C&C roots, please!

If consoles will wage war to each other through resolution, I don't know if it is worth noticing. PC is already there, we all know it. If they want to make a PC-like experience for consoles, it's await and see, still.

Oh, Jess. I am absent for 2 days, so I'm here. PRESENT MA'AM! Great job again! ;D 

Actually I thought you will continue doing cosplay forever and ever in the show, but it appears that you just do that on specials only. Looking forward for another one. You are very pretty Alice. *two thumbs up*

Keep up the good work! ;D

I don't think that EA cancelling F2P C&C made them unpopular. Nobody was really interested - most people want a true Generals sequel, not another crappy F2P game.

Although shutting down the dev was a bit much. So that might have made them a little more unpopular.

Nintendo failed the moment they began marketing nothing but 3DS games since last holiday season.

Its Nintendos own fault for that

I find it a tad sad that the top new story is regarding the resolution difference between two consoles. You'd think that there would be something more important than that in gaming news this week :/.

Not a console player, but console owners should sue publishers when they decide to not release a game on their platform, because it's about the gamers, not about creating an elite within a niche...

Command and Conquer will be missed but we all know it wont be as good as it used to be if they brought the new one out.

My view of some of the mistakes console manufactures are making.

PS4  not supporting external hard drives is a big mistake.  When games will be up to 40 to 50 Gb, down loading will not be an attractive option.  It will encourage people to own disk versions of games.  Sony will also lose out by help the second hand game market.  Changing the internal hard means you are paying for 500 Gb hard drive you can’t use.

Xbox one using DDR3 ram not GDDR5.  DDR3 ram is cheaper but will Microsoft in time change the Xbox ones ram to GDDR5 ??

Wii U being sold with the Wii U game pad controller, it should of been sold with the wii controllers and the game pad controller sold as an accessories.  This would have made the Wii U a lot cheaper, the big advantage the Wii had over the Xbox 360 and Ps3.

Jess is like a superweapon of Gamespot in the struggle against IGN, I'm sure there are some chain-smoking old dudes in a bunker right now trying to figure out how they can leverage this advantage further. And likewise IGN is in a state of red alert trying to find a counter move.

EA should hire the guys behind Rise of the Reds and Shockwave mods and put them in charge of the developing studio, then we'll see Generals 2 a game the fans want and newbies love

Yeah! Jess is playing her usual stiff but cute girl role.

I find her stuff hard to watch due to the seriousness of it though... 

Come on gal, you are not reporting the end of the world, this site is about videogames...

DIE EA !!!! U r the worst company ever related to games...U acquire studios and crap every great game franchise. U even managed to screw GENERALS. That's like an achievement for u....and FYI u have long stopped making games which the gamers want to play. DIE bastards.

When I first read "EA cancels C&C" I was appalled. Then I discover it was  the FTP online game, which may have been the most disgusting thing to happen to C&C ever, and know I'm happy.

EA can kiss microsoft's ass just like what square-enix did a few years ago.  playstation fans will just "boycott" them just like what we did with squenix.  they'll be singing the financial woes squenix did a couple of years from now.  we'll be buying only used ea games in discount bins from now on.  you don't want our money?  you won't get it.  we won't buy the xbone720p for titanfall.

@jimdove2 I hope you're kidding... I'm so sick of seeing tardis bumper stickers on 9 out of 10 cars here.

@JimmyJumpy Pretty sure that wouldn't work out. It is up to a company to chose how they want to release a product, there isn't anything that says a publisher must release a product to everyone.

@nz43 why would one want to use an external hard drive anyway. internal hard drives are cheaper and take up less space in the living room. if 500 gb is not enough, then one can always fit a 1 - 2 tb internal hard drive in the console themselves.

You do know that DDR and GDDR are somewhat different right? I mean.. The G is a give away. G would signify that its vRAM or RAM used by a GPU. They function the same, just different applications. DDR is often tied to a motherboard and is the current highest RAM DDR out there. So my question is. What are you talking about? The motherboard or the GPU?

@Northuz I agree, and isn't that really pathetic? None of these sites needed any women to win overs users even a few months ago. Especially gamespot. They got rid of all the uniqueness with their new iteration.

@jeyhu @SNAKEVSFOX Woah hey man, regardless of whether you approve of his comment, being condescending and rude ain't cool. Keep it chill and civil please :).

Wow, what crawled up your ass? 

Semi-attractive girl? You got no taste. 

I really wonder who's the loser now, since you bothered replying to a comment that made no difference to you whatsoever. But hey you just want to act "tough" by being a keyboard warrior on the internet. I think that is quite Pathetic.

@Berkut4796 @JimmyJumpy and to add to that wouldnt that count for pc users as well?  yeah, this train of thought is all kinds of silliness... lets sue because i cant get red vine where i live!

@Aaronp2k @nz43 On the PS3 you can upgrade the internal hard drive and use an external hard drive.  I think Sony should still give the same choice on the PS4.

@Elrax you sir are incorrect... please educate yourself before trying to educate others.  or ask yourself this one simple question... how much ram does the ps4 use?

@DeadManRollin @Northuz The gaming part is still pretty important though, I'd never watch Jess hosting something I wasn't interested in no matter how charming.

@DeadManRollin @Northuz Are we judging Jess on her hosting ability or something else? And does it make a difference when the guys (men) do a video? Are we judging on personality, presentation and host skill or is this just about looks? Because I'm sure Jess wants to be noticed for her hard work and skill. Looks that's for her boyfriend to worry about.
