This all presumes Microsoft can get the feature correct which so far has not exactly been encouraging with erroneous signon and other quirks. The "all digital future" was not promised by Microsoft anyway so I'm not sure what is missed.

Neir is a fascinating game and it has a lot of tragedy all around it. Great read.

They are. The Edmonton team responsible for the trilogy is working on an entirely new as yet unannounced franchise. The next Mass Effect is being done by Bioware Montreal (the guys that did the ME3 multiplayer) under the supervision of the Edmonton team.

That is not the definition of "something else" either because means Bioware is still doing a Mass Effect game.

The people that made all the Mass Effect games are doing something else.

No they are not. If they are forced to manage and guide Mass Effect games then how is that "Bioware doing something else"?

The thing that keeps happening to other EA wholly own subsidiary is that they get shackled to some franchise. Mass Effect is going to be just fine with out Bioware's input or influence (or at least can't get weirder or worse) so why bother Bioware with this?

I have been saying for years that they needed to undo The Time War lock thing because that would bring back other Time Lords. Sure Daleks and Cybermen and whatever are fun to fight monsters of the episode but having other Time Lords either actively interfering or in conflict or even helping The Doctor would be a conflict that you often don't see in the show.

One of the "core features" of these types of games are collecting things and showing them off so it is kind of silly to say "it is a good thing they hide that". Gear are the trophies and achievements of these games where in a massively online game you want to show off hard work by just standing there and letting people see what you've collected.

The reason why MMO style games often need a third person viewpoint is that the combat is so variable and derived that it is important to know what is around the character. If position and disposition are going to be important to combat then you will need another set UI indicators and another set of controls just to control "look left/right/backwards" and such which at that point combat has to slow down and control setups get close or are overly complex for a controller. Given the choice between slowing down or encumbering control or the third person camera designers often pick supporting the third person camera instead.

WoW supports a first person view. As far as I know, no one seriously uses it beyond machinma and scene staging.

It is in Twitch's "Terms of Service" agreement that they can kill any broadcast or feed they don't like.

Besides, if you really wanted to do this sort of thing, the Internet has been been innovating here for decades now to make it cheap and easy to setup this sort of thing and I suspect the payout is much better than the ad revenue from Twitch.

This happens if the PS3 is configured to output to a different resolution than what it currently plugged into. I think if you hold down the power button till it beeps 3 times twice it will come up in a safe mode.

Many people have a problem separating opinion from the person....including themselves. You are not your opinions any more than reviews are their reviews. It is fine to like a game that reviews poorly. You can still like a reviewer who didn't like a game you like.
