Did you miss the Lamborghini chasing the Hummer through San Francisco?

I'm only borrowing your Humvee...

What do you want me to do, kill him again?

The Rock kicks ass.

Definitely.

Stanley Goodspeed: I'll do my best.

John Mason: Your "best"! Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and fuck the prom queen.

@hailinel:

Me too. Fuck the inevitable digital future.

In the UK, 'digital future' basically translates as 'costs more'. Both PSN and XBOX prices are a joke for digital games - especially as they age. Plus there is no convenience as most places are stuck with crappy internet. Although to be honest, with the sizes of some of these next-gen game patches I might as well have bought them digital, angrily looking at you Sniper Elite 3 and Dead Rising 3.

Whilst I understand that steam offers a more cost friendly approach, I don't have a PC worth shit and the initial investment in a decent rig doesn't seem worth the offset of slightly cheaper prices.

Now let's wait a couple of seconds before the first one that will say "2014", while the year is not even halfway yet and allready alot of good games were released...

Whilst I agree with the sentiment, and accepting that only half over, this year seems to be the 'year of disappointments'; Titanfall, Watch Dogs, Murdered Soul suspect and Thief were all little underwhelming given we are apparently in the 'next-gen'.

Plus what is there left for this year with regards to tent-pole releases? Destiny, Dragon Age III?

I think the biggest problem with this generation so far is people having the idea that games are going to look out of this world and be filled with new ideas out the gate. On the case of watch dogs, if you look at the review or quick look the comment section is riddled with people echo opinions about how it doesn't look super great, or that it doesn't play how they expected. I am left confused, because what do people expect a game to look like that is being released on nearly every non-mobile platform under the sun? Also I want to finish this by saying I didn't get watch dogs because Wolfenstein looked like a better game to buy. I won't continue this longer because I feel like I am jacking the thread, but I you or anyone else want's to continue this, I will be happy to.

To respond to your response and the actual topic: 2014 already is a great year for me because of releases like Infamous: Second Son, Wolfenstein(still can't believe how much I liked that game), Transistor, and Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls expansion + loot 2.0 patch.

Obviously those games aren't going to be great for everyone, but I have a running theory that it's pretty hard to have a bad year of any kind of media. Like @viking_funeral, whenever I try and think about if a year of gaming was disappointing, I always end up with a decent list of great games I played that year. It's not always big AAA games or even games that I expect. To me it seems there is just such a huge amount of games, both big and small, that cover such a wide range of genre's that it's incredibly difficult not to finish a year without having a handful of games you really enjoy.

"Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one"

I agree, that's why I said this year had been disappointing rather than bad. Something @viking_funeral missed when he commented on my original post. I honestly think that this year, despite 2 new consoles, is the most disappointing we have had in recent memory. Like you, I find it hard to look at any year and say its been bad for gaming - every year has 4-5 really good games (although not everyone has access to every system to enjoy them).

I had completely forgotten about Wolfenstein, which is a shame, because as it goes that might be one of my contenders for game of the year (so far), but one game doesn't make a great year.

I don't think the problems with Watch Dogs are graphics related, I just think its a poor game. Everything, from mission design (escorting people through a camera lens is the new 'tailing') through to the way it controls, was lackluster. Apologists are citing AC 1 as evidence that Watch Dogs 2 will be better, but shouldn't several AC games have ensured Watch Dogs 1 should have been a better game? I agree Infamous SS was a good game, but I think that the drought of games on the next-gen systems is clouding opinion. Certainly, Transistor hasn't hooked me at all, despite loving Bastion.

As I said time will tell, but with almost everything shifting to 2015, its not looking like there is much on the horizon.

@counterclockwork87, I cant believe the 2012 hate:

Hell no to this. No small businessman and 3 hours of disagreement between Jeff and Brad... no thank you sir.

Still, good for Vinny. All the best for the future, you have to do what is right for you.

I think it's gross to announce your new studio in the same release that you mention all the people you're firing.

I'm all for Ken starting a new studio but he doesn't need to announce it in the same breath as this. Poorly done.

Completely agree.

It almost comes off as "I'm bored now. I will chose the 15 that will their jobs, the rest of you can fuck off"

I don't get the fuss about the bumpers, they seem perfectly fine in my opinion. I just slide my finger from the trigger and up to the bumper and press it...

Completely agree, to be honest I don't think there is that much of a difference between the XBOXO and the 360 controller (I am fliiping between BF4 MP one the XBOXO and Dark Souls on 360). People just seem to want to find faults.

Wolf Creek, F-ing terrified me. Still does.
