A new SimAnt built for next-gen systems/high end PCs, and I want all that power going towards AI. I don't want a few hundred ants driving a guy out of his house, I want a black (or red) blanket laying siege to a fucking city.

I'm half hoping that Polygon gives the console an 8 just so I can see the Internet catch fire

I'll admit that I haven't checked through all 9 pages of this topic to see if it's been mentioned yet, but if not, I wanted to congratulate you on your prescience.

One thing that hadn't occurred to me until hearing the crew talk about that basketball game on the PS4 launch video was the fact that even if a next gen version is coming out, the PC version could be a port of the current/previous gen game. In other words, the PC version of NBA 2K14 is apparently a port of the PS3/360 version, which has some different features from the PS4/Xbox One version.

So I guess what I'm wondering is what the case is with AC4.

Not the case.

You brought up the one game where this is the case, basically (NBA 2K). You're getting a better version of every game otherwise with ports to PC.

2K does a crap job with NBA and acknowledges it by making it $30 at release on PC. The game doesn't even have online on PC. They didn't bother to port the advanced next gen version for the same reason.

I guess the fact that NBA 2K14 is such an anomaly explains why the idea that it even COULD happen like that hadn't crossed my mind. But that is good to hear.

And every single comment on the review is Patrick just typing "CAT MARIO!!"

I think it's better when it's Vinny making underground, bootleg Bombcast. It would be a little too "knowing," a little too wink-and-head-toss if it became a standard thing.

This. Keep it special.

A somewhat crummy gif I made when trying out some new gif making program.

I have been sorting them as Favorites, Beaten, and Not Beaten, but I may reorganize them to include the categories of "Not Going to Beat" and "Not Worth Playing"

Or just go back to one giant list with a small category of "To Play" games on the side.

I'd be more than happy to play a casual platformer as one of the launch titles, but Knack's visual design seems incredibly bland. I'm all for cartoony look, but not something overly saturday morning-like...

I don't know, I kind of like the design. It is hard to look at the gameplay and not just see a particle system Ganondorf running around punching Shreks in the face, though.
