I like Daniel Carlson's piece, as someone who is both invested in videogames and movies. I'd add that bending a screenplay to add a "setpiece" isn't new to blockbuster. Hitchcock was notorious (hehe, get it?) for asking to his writers to add scene that would present a challenge to direct, one of those being the Mt. Rushmore scene in North By Northwest. That said, it does not detract from Carlson's piece, as the attitude of Hitchcock was similar to the attitude blockbuster movie have toward their audience, minus the autorship.

P.S. Marvel just make the same movie over and over with a slightly different tone and, yes, Guardians of Galaxy has that exact problem.

The main problem with GotG is how cheesy it is. The hero dancing in order to stop the villain from killing a planet by hitting it with a hammer is way too close to Spaceballs territory. As a Marvel movie it's vastly inferior to The Winter Solider.

I bet it shows up on PC and PS4 in 2016.

" She's played the celebrity game pretty damn well. If everyone could do it, they would."

Yes, Patrick. Everyone with a slightly famous last name would get fucked on camera and release a video of it to the world if they only could.

The thing that bugs me the most is where he claims only soccer players cry. I've seen male and female athletes from a bunch of different sports cry before, sometimes when they win, sometimes when they lose, sometimes when they suffer injuries.

Why an employee of Giant Bomb wants to waste his free time antagonizing people on twitter is one thing, but if you're going to troll it has to make some kind of sense.

I see he has already apologized so that's fine. Time to move on.

Sony are going to do it, too.

"On Xbox One, active Gold membership required to play free games you've downloaded"

So, is the PS Plus format only applying to Xbox One games, while 360 remains as it has been?

Yes. The only reason MS lets you keep the Games with Gold games on the 360 after your subscription has lapsed is because they couldn't engineer a way on their old console to tie downloaded game access to your Xbox Live status. If they could make it subscription based on the 360 too, they would.

It works for me because I'm still making my way thru Sleeping Dogs three months after I let my Gold subscription end.

Trophy rarity is interesting, but I hate that you still need to sync. Thanks for the words, Jeff. Enjoy the flight.

If it's as fast as on the Vita it shouldn't be a problem.
