Contemplating starting NG+ on Dying Light before sending it back to Gamefly. Slowly making my way through Sunset Overdrive, but it isn't as fun as I imagined. I'll probably finish up that first episode of Life is Strange. Destiny, Warframe, and UFC have stayed in constant rotation.

2008 was one of my favorite years for gaming.

Burnout Paradise

Condemned 2

GTA IV

Rainbow Six Vegas 2

MGS 4

Fallout 3

Dead Space

Left 4 Dead

Mirrors Edge

Braid

Fable 2

Rock Band 2

Gears of War 2

I think 2015 has more games that appeal to less people than 98 or 08. Games like Persona, FF, Xenoblade are more niche than most. I do think 2015 will be the year we get our first jaw dropping, truly next hen experience on X1 and Ps4

Maybe check out Warframe on PC?

Sucks. Patrick's thoughtful writing will be buried under the latest Marvel trailer, fast food reviews, and the oodles of shitty hits driven "content" that Kotaku hosts. That site was relevant 3-5 years ago. Now it just embodies the gross corporate side of the Internet. No respect for any site affiliated with Gawker Media. I was hoping Patrick would land at somewhere like the New York Times and help grown their online presence.

Destiny is certainly GOTY material. It is also the most disappointing game of the year. One of those rare games you can sink hundreds of hours into with the blink of an eye.

Opinions always vary though. I thought The Evil Within was far and away one of the best games of the year. Meanwhile, horror buff Klepek gave it a measly 2 stars.

Wonder who will be filling in for Drew this week, if anyone. It seems like this is probably his last week on vacation. I wouldn't mind having both Rorie and Jason on, or the more unlikely scenario, a rare Will Smith appearance. It has been awhile since he's been on the Bombcast.

@jeff: Alright, I can buy that. That line of thinking is consistent with how you recently said that the Metacritic colors for reviews is perfect for the site. I suppose in an ideal world you would have dozens of unique images to choose from, so that there would always be something to accurately portray the tone of the review. I still think that visual aid gives a lot of expression and says more than 1-5 stars colored gold.

For a personality driven site, it still makes no sense to me that they removed something that added a lot of personality.
