@whitegreyblack: Oh, for sure. I'm not saying that Hololens is going to be a big success and have lots of great applications, I'm just saying that people who have actually used it have said amazing things that seem to bear out the possibility that what was shown in the concept video is not as far from the truth.

Microsoft have said that this has a long way to go still and no one is even making any software for it yet. I see this more akin to the old table sized Microsoft Surface of yore, more a proof of concept that will bear out much more fruit in 5 or 10 years.

@flippyandnod: Aside from the word "exclusive" how is the Wired article full of bullshit? A lot of different press outlets got their hands on the same demos and said basically the exact same stuff.

Before people shit on Hololense, maybe they should read some of the impressions of people who have gone hands on with it. It sounds like they are actually delivering on what the video shows.

Unity is way better than people are giving it credit for. I'm not a huge AC fan - I've played about half of them but only came close to beating AC2 - and really only bought Unity because my wife and I honeymooned in Paris, so I thought it would be neat to go back there virtually. Turns out I'm really loving the game. Despite its technical problems it looks incredible, the world feels "alive" in a way I haven't seen before and the story is leagues better than Black Flag. I think people were just ready to hate AC again and the embargo/bug issues have put a worse spin on the game itself than it deserves.

Valiant Hearts. Probably my favorite game of the year and I've played a lot of stuff. I thought everything about it was fantastic, especially the art and music.

I am probably going to look pretty foolish after having just defended Downpour a few comments back but I have to say, I found PT to be insanely boring and not scary. There were some great, creepy moments and disturbing images but walking back and forth in a hallway for dozens of minutes on end, tediously looking for some obscure trigger to make the game move on sapped any scares out of the set pieces. It was basically a gorgeous hidden object game with a baby crying on endless loop in the background. That radio broadcast was terrific the first time I heard it but by the time I'd heard it 30 times I was just so inured to it it retroactively erased any creeps it might have once given me.

You are wrong about Downpour Patrick. I genuinely feel like the anti-horror attitude and cynicism of the SF office (I love em, but come on) caused you to put on your hater-pants while you played that game. It is the best mainline Silent Hill since 2. And I came to this conclusion having played it right after replaying 2&3. The monster designs are bad and the combat is semi-broken, but the environments, puzzles, side quests and exploration are some of the best that the series has seen and the story is one of the more coherent stories in the whole series.

Edit: The final boss area does suck pretty bad though.

@john1912: You're not the only one who loved Downpour. I honestly think that most of the haters have never played it. It had some of the best environments and puzzles of any game in the series and the story was easily better than any of them since 2.

I am so sick of everyone talking about how Silent Hill has been shitty/dead for 10 years. It has certainly seen its ups and downs but Downpour was genuinely my favorite Silent Hill since 2. It had some mediocre monster designs and combat that felt almost broken at first, but the story, environments and puzzles were up there with the best of them. I honestly believe most of you going on about how bad it was never even played it, you just read a bunch of reviews and made some assumptions. Well the SH games have NEVER reviewed well - Silent Hill 2 got all 7s in EGM when it came out.

I am having a weird reaction to Road Not Taken. I don't really enjoy it at all - the puzzle mechanics feel unwieldy, arbitrary and overly difficult - and yet I am compelled to keep playing it. I don't know why. I play it for 20 minutes & think "nope, I don't really like this game" so I turn it off... Only to find myself wanting to play it again a few hours later.
