How can a game be "too scary" and why wouldn't you want to play it? Go drool while playing Mario Kart for the hundredth time ya pansy.

So PC gamers will be getting MS5?...so glad the master race finally gets consoles leftovers yet again. Cross your fingers for Destiny, maybe you'll it after everyone else has long since forgotten it. Keep waving that war banner ya elitists.

Destiny's a ten year project, doubt that it's gonna get forgotten after 6 months.

@Gravity_Slave MGS5, which hasn't been released on consoles yet, is a console leftover? 


*slow clap*

I really wish they'd stop announcing these kinds of payed exclusives (timed or not) as something positive for their consumers. It offers no benefit for the consumers whatsoever. All it does is being bad for their competitors and their consumers.

I have an Xbox One but why should I be happy that PS4 owners can't get the game? Unless I'm a complete piece of human garbage and granted there are a lot of those in both camps.


First party funding of games is a different deal of course because then they are actually paying for the development of something for their platform.

I can't decide, is this woman British or American, hmmm?

@DarkLord @carcassplays Idk, it's weird because sometimes she sounds completely American and then British. I have a few Australian friends but he accent sounds like a clusterfuck of all of the accents lmao

@carcassplays @DarkLord First, and this is important, Jess is awesome, and we love her.  

Second, I think for a little while she was trying to work on speaking without her accent, which might explain the fluctuation, but that is just my observation from watching her...alot...in the bushes with bino....err her videos!

All I know is someone better start feeding her. She looks like Zelda from Pet Cemetary. :o

Silent Hills looks amazing but that has got to be the most unimaginative and stupid name for a sequel I have ever heard. Which is bad because Phantom Pain is number 2 on all time crappiest titles. Kojima really needs to work on that.

@Dannystaples14 Isn't it supposed to be a reboot? And Phantom Pain makes sense for the game and it's story and trailers...

@carcassplays Phantom Pain is a mental illness for people who have lost limbs. What is the next one going to be Metal Gear Solid: Dementia, or Metal Gear Solid: Shrapnel Face?

I just think adding an s onto the end sounds strange after so long as just Silent Hill. For the legendary writer that everyone makes him out to be surely he can come up with something better than that?

Bloodborne looks A M A Z I N G!

Hopefully it's not like Dark Souls and impossible to play. I quit DS because it was too frustrating. No fun in being angry at a game. Defeats the purpose

Why Silent Hills with an "s" on the end?  The series was based on a town called Silent Hill, so that seems odd to me.

@Verityrant Just a guess here but because when you look at it the town has multiple variations- fog, hell, "normal" so you could say Silent Hills.

@xaviersaint I think the game stretches outside more and shows you another town. That's why I think Silent Hill becomes Silent Hills

the real question is when will Jess play the "p.t." demo on house of horrors?

Verityrant

@Jdzspace and, just for efficiency mind you, if she does it with no pants on then she won't have to worry about terror related bodily functions.

@Verityrant @Jdzspace I hate to break it to you, but last weeks House of Horrors was the final ever episode. The Lobby is the only live show Gamespot will be producing from now on.

MS baiting people with deception - how is that new?? They bribe the company to BS gamers.


I have one point though: I've been playing TR complete edit. for 3 hours on PS4. Awesome game, great graphics, great gameplay. The story, however, is unfocused and ludicrous and has as many plot holes as a Detroit Avenue. You spend millions developing a game and you can't hire writers who are at least competent. I mean who do you care about in that game? LC? She's vanilla. And no one else. Take a lesson from Last of US and write good stories in these adventure games.

Xbutt is like rotten fish on sea food stands all over Europe. NEWS FLASH TOMB RAIDER IS NOT AN EXCLUSIVE ! Microsuck paid them to say so that they can sell more xbutt and their ryse, dead rising 3, killer instinct, titanfall, forza crappy games. PC IS THE MASTER RACE !

@gameoftrolls If it's the master race, why do most of the good console games go to PC? At last, we can stop hearing PC players bitch about GTA V... Seriously. We're all gamers, what's the point in making a "master race" post?

I think the soiling of pants should be a new unit of measurement.  I wish to have been a fly on the wall during /that/ conversation.

One of the best things for me from Gamecom, is that I found out more about "Quantum Break".

Anyone knows the theme they used in the begnining it is so soothing,seems to be from a game ?

That spray on mocap thing, that was so cool.  It's such a simple idea, but one that I certainly had never thought of.

Comment that Silent Hill will ruin pants comes during Shart Week.

Not coincidental.

It will be absolutely brilliant if they include a pair of pants with the limited edition.

@PixelAddict Thing is, if you just peed your pants, you should probably still change them. :)

@PixelAddict well, there's a chance Kojima wasn't joking about that. Of all developers he can do things like that for real.

When your POS4 ain't got Tomb Raider for you to play......and these $10 indies just won't do.....Sony Corp ain't loyal!!!

@moesuir What. Tomb Raider is timed, indies are fuckin awesome, and what does this have to do with sony being loyal? Loyal to who?

Just don’t ware any pants while playing.
Problem solved.

Have someone’s mouth sewn to your anus Human Centipede style. Not only will it save your pants it will add to the horror.

@GLOK1132 @howling_lead Yup, unless you play directly over a toilet or some other kind of hole to the abyss, that crap is still gonna end up on something you don't want it on :).


And yes, toilets simply drain into the abyss.

Thank you GS for changing that auto-forward timer thing, it is now easier to stop it, but better yet is to just disable it.


Day one DLC for SIlent Hill: Laundry Day.
