I would just stick to PC and X1 for now. I don't think Sony has announced any great PS4 exclusive yet besides Uncharted 4, which is a while away. At least X1 has Titanfall, Sunset, and the Halo Collection coming if you're into Halo. I have no interest in Knack, Killzone, or LBP, but that's obviously subjective. I would lean towards the platform that my friends are on too, since playing Evolve, Destiny, AC Unity, etc with randoms wouldn't be nearly as fun. That's the downside to games being co-op focused.

@hobozero: A lot of medicines for blood pressure, cholesterol, etc may fix a problem but then cause another one later, so hopefully you don't need the pills after some lifestyle changes.

! & 2 sound like bad ideas. Getting rid of comments would be silly and I wouldn't use a site that was so pretentious and self-important that I had to wait a week to post.

@nightriff: As far as recent games, the two Marvel Ultimate Alliance games were the best I played. I think they had like 4 to 6 X-Men characters from what I remember.

its really fucked up. but we're all gonna die and there's nothing after that. you gotta make what you can out of your life while you can.

I think 100% assuming there's a heaven or afterlife is just as illogical as assuming 100% that there isn't one. The truth is we don't know. It could be oblivion, purgatory, heaven/hell, reincarnation, we're all little gray men & this is all a simulation, or a million other theories. So many theories and possibilities that assuming that there's nothing seems a bit a lazy and uninspired to me. Accepting it as a "known unknown" is more logical to me than going with organized religion or atheism. Of course, this is a subjective/personal choice.

Dude an afterlife or whatever is pure fantasy. Dead is dead. Anyone who thinks otherwise is either ignorant or too afraid to accept the truth.

lol, now that's a very ignorant thing to say. Only a dead person can truly answer that question and they're obviously in no position to talk. I'm not saying you're wrong, the answer is simply "we don't know". Just because we don't know the answer doesn't mean the answer is nothing. Anyone who thinks they know the answer for sure is being foolish IMO.

feminists hardly ever bring up race or religion, which are far more deadly and dangerous forms of discrimination than sexism. Of course, sexism is horrible too before someone in here says I'm saying that's not the case, but hate/discrimination towards race and religion has done far more harm in human history.

Are you talking about actual academic feminism, or some people on tumblr? Intersectionality has actually been a major thing in mainstream academic feminism for quite a while now!

Also, in my own country (UK), 37 years after the abolition of slavery women had no legal right to own property. In the far east and the Indian subcontinent, the estimated number of cases of female infanticide over the past century numbers in the millions. I'm not saying this to imply that sexism is worse than racism. I'm saying this because it's fucking stupid to compare different forms of discrimination in order to casually and ignorantly dismiss those which you haven't experienced.

I was talking about "internet people", not from the academic standpoint. I overhead a woman in the video game industry telling my two friends who are also in the industry how hard it was for her and other women, which is all probably very true, but a white woman telling a black man and Arab/Muslim man how hard it is in America and not thinking of their viewpoint once is a bit silly to me. I didn't casually dismiss anything, if you calculate the deaths and mistreat based on region/race it would dwarf gender. The Native American holocaust, African slavery, and Jewish holocaust alone probably beat that number.

Like I said before, it's all horrible and we should strive to rid it all, but being a specific thing such as feminist, zionist, centric towards your race, etc all seems a bit self-serving to me. It would be better to be a "humanist" and focus on everyone, not just the gender, race, and nationality you were randomly given. There's still African slavery at this very moment, so I know that in certain parts of the world people are still doing primitive and insane misconduct.

Assassins Creed III: Liberation

Assassins Creed IV: Freedom Cry

Both of which are lesser games compared to the main series, both feature Black Protagonists. Yet, people kicked up a stink because of the Far Cry 4 cover.

Hmmm...

They weren't main entries in the series, but at least they did something. As a black person myself, I was happy to some black leads popping up in gaming. From my experience, feminists hardly ever bring up race or religion, which are far more deadly and dangerous forms of discrimination than sexism. Of course, sexism is horrible too before someone in here says I'm saying that's not the case, but hate/discrimination towards race and religion has done far more harm in human history. Other than maybe Bioware, Ubisoft seems like the most progressive major studio around right now.

I liked Live more than 2K besides the last several Live games. I used to love a few of them (I forgot the years) but Tony Parker and Gilbert Arenas were on the cover of the two I liked most. From what I remember, Live either started or handled certain things better like stats being updated daily in-reference to the real NBA, seeing hot zones where that player can shoot from, and I loved the 5 vs. 5 online (10 human players). 2K has never been good at multiplayer and they still aren't now. The latest one doesn't have a 10 player online mode even though Live did that years ago. 2K14 has a silly street basketball mode that's 3 on 3 where people just dunk and do lay-ups, SMH. I'd like for Live to make a comeback since 2K isn't good at multiplayer.

Number 2 was a surprise, the rest not so much. Maybe if it wasn't revealed that Rockstar had another game this year then GTA would be a surprise.
