Great show. You don't abundance without gratitude. Great show Jess and other staff. Thank you.

Grand Theft Auto V:  While playing this game, I thought to myself, this is Grand Thef Overrated in the fun department.  They should have given this game over to Volition Studios, the makers of the Saints Row series, to trim off the fat and spice the game up with much more fun.  Having fun what's most important in a video game, I thought at least.

GTA V was quality, but was filled with a lot of mundane drudgery in between the fun parts.  The graphics were great, the heights were great, the ability to replay missions were great, the ability to choose from a couple different options for how to pull off the heists was great, but most everthing else in between was uninspiring, dull, and wasted a lot of time.  

If you want to have a good time, play that Grand Theft Auto "knockoff" Saints Row series and you'll have a much better time.  You'll have more fun per time invested too.

If they do make a PC version, hopefully they give it Volition Studios to make it much more fun and trim off the fat.  Saints Row series >>> Grand Theft Auto series.

I've gone from seeing X-Box as that FPS-centric console I don't need to something that tried to kill the industry with DRM and advances the cause of Big Brother.  Forget a "console war", MS declared war against consumers, and I will never forget it.  If you really think that built-in mic only listens for "X-Box ___" I've got a bridge to sell you.

LOL a trash game, trash company, trying to trademark a common word.  Are they idiots?

Lol Microsoft. The wars will never end, people are never happy and greed is our default trait. 

In saying this, Microsoft has made a system that no matter what anyone or Microsoft says is inferior then the PS4 by how ever much, it's still under-powered compared.

It was obvious from the start that GTA V will come to PC...just like every previous version.

Rockstar would be silly to throw that market away and I'm pretty sure they know how to make money.

It seems like a lot of ppl here, look at Jess as a fantasy instead of as a human being...just bcus she is a "gamer girl" and shares a hobby with you isn't a reason to obsess, she is a woman delivering gaming news calm down on the creep factor...

Candy crush devs should ask Bethesda how well it went when they tried to copy write "scrolls".

Funny how Major Nelson was boasting about how the Xbox One was going to be the better console. Now because the Xbone received a shitload of negative feedback and PS4 is doing great, he now wants discourage people about voicing their opinions that the Xbone sucks. Dude.... it sucks... balls

Nelson is right when he says both systems will sell a ton. They are already on their way. We know there will be price cuts and slim models down the road. Games will improve and more exclusives will be announced. Same things that happened last generation. Hating on either console is just childish when there will be so many incredible games to play on both systems.

Microsoft sounds like an ugly girl with way to much make-up saying: "Look at me! I'm beautiful too!"... and everyone else tries to ignore her.

The trademark is for "candy crush" and not just the word "candy" - there are many tm's that use the word candy in them - and there is no one tm for the word "candy" - TMs can be searched on the USPTO's website....

ya, i'm going to say paying for good reviews is wrong, how would you like it if you saw some place "good" to eat on a review and it was "bad" not only bad but even made you ill no paying for reviews sounds like something the afordable care act would do dont worry you dont pay taxes

King worries me with their pursuit of idiocy.  Even though they might ultimately lose, I fear for the health of Stoic if King tries to take them to court.  King has enough cash on hand to make it a protracted fight.  I'm hoping that Don Mattrick will suddenly start working for King and then drag them into the abyss.

All in all, a slow week (kinda' nice) apparently if the comments are any indication.  Very mellow compared to the usual fare.

Hope you have a good afternoon and then Sunday!

From all the things that I am hearing about Microsoft saying stuff, I am getting the impression that Microsoft marketing thinks that the XBox is some kind of feel-good yoga deep experience thing instead of a machine.  The marketing is all well and good, but it's a machine!  Does this kind of marketing really move consoles?

Better stock up on CandyLand board games before they're gone. Millions of children will be deprived of licking the cards to see if they actually taste like the picture.

I get the feeling that the lawyers behind this Candy Crush thing haven't played a video game before.

Pfft, when was it....? Back in august I said I saw a PC GTA V advert on a cardboard stand thingy from Walmart while I was in electronics department. Of course this just caused people to call me a liar and call me in the middle of the night threatening to peel my skin off. Should have taken a damn picture. And seeing as it is going to be released on PC I see no reason why to pay for it as I can simply acquire it from the " Magic Gaming Fairy™" who bestowed the gift of Barbie's Alcohol Induced Sexual Holiday Vacation, and other gems.

@Sharkspawn80 Inferior. Cmon it has slightly better processor then PS4 but weaker RAM and GPU which is two most important things in gaming machine.

@simonmetcalf Hmmm maybe, as a big fan of GTA this was a let down, havent touched it since i finished the story. Think they ruined signature GTA style for crappy online. Leave online to brainless CoD and racing to racing games, GTA is a single player game, it always was. So if it doesnt come to PC you not missing musch, Saints Row 3 and 4 are more fun, even Mafia 2 was more enjoyable game for me.

@simonmetcalf Obviously they forgot how with Red Dead Redemption, and if they really knew how, we wouldn't have to wait PC version to release year later.

@hikaruaiJess is indeed human, but we know she will never roll her eyes at us or suddenly act moody for no reason during a segment.  Unfortunately, that's the fantasy here, a beautiful woman who only emits positive energy.  Look at the links above, she's smiling in all of them.

@loon86Meh. Marketing is marketing. Every company wants to push their products in a positive light.

@TimberWolf_CLT If the US court systems worked the way they should work, a monkey in a suit would be able to win the case for Stoic. Too bad that isn't always the case. 

*cue joke about monkey being cheaper and more useful than a traditional lawyer*

Honestly I'm not surprised someone is trying to copywrite a single word. But if it was me I'd go for higher frequency vocab, like "The". That's where the real money's at.

@amdreallyfast  All these comments from Microsoft are a sign of desperation from my point  of view. They invest a lot of money for exclusives and do despicable things, but it's the only thing they actually can do, when they're outsold by that much. 

For example they said that they appreciate Sony for respecting traditions... well, this is NEXT gen, so we want new, not tradition. Clearly throwing  a punch below the belt... with a smile.

@blackace @loon86  I'm not saying Microsoft has bad products. Actually I'm a big fan of Bill Gates and Windows - it's brilliant and that's a fact. But the way Microsoft acts now, marketing wise, with the Xbox One, it's beneath it, from my point of view.

@MaTTerCuBe@notjustin and you think the goverment that always tells you everything is OK is ... really ok. not a goverment debate but dose sound like something it would do shutting down a bridge on the rep side, dems say its all over a video, 100 million go to maken a website that at release date dosen't work AT ALL ... everything is ok
