So about 2 years ago I stopped to pick up a few things at the local Wal-Mart by my house. Like usual I swung by the electronics department. If any store has an electronics department it’s a must stop no matter what. It's the way of the geek. To my surprise sitting on the bottom shelf of the clearance games I found a perfect condition boxed copy of Dragon Quest 8 that included the FF12 demo. I grabbed it and bought it right away. It was only $15. I cracked it open last night and started it. I just finished Ni No Kuni so I felt the need to dive into this next. What a great find! Anyone else have any good stories about good game jewels they found at a store?
With "Next Gen" gaming right around the corner we are seeing a lot of information on the possibilities of streaming games. It seems inevitable that digital purchases and streaming games will be the future of gaming. We also have a large variety of video streaming services available which work remarkable well. PC gaming has a huge amount of always online games that many people have played for years. For all of this to work well we need good speeds. I am concerned about what this is going to mean for the consumers when it comes to their internet providers. If feel like there is a reckoning coming from cable companies and it's going to get a lot more expensive for everyone. You hear a lot about connections being throttle and people having to pay different pricing for bandwidth usage. I have been through the pricing increases along with everyone else over the years. All the talk about the new consoles having many more streaming application plus all the talk about them being the component hooked to your TV that will replace everything else sounds awesome. The only thing is I have to pay someone to be able to stream all that content. Are internet costs going to skyrocket? Does anyone have any thoughts or information what could happen?
I played the Beta on PS3 last night and it seems like it has tons of potential. It rough at this point. The open world questing along with matchmaking mp is pretty cool. Feels like BF crossed with Borderlands in 3rd person. If they make it look and run a lot better this could be a good game.
