Usually its good when one person goes in cold, and asks the newbie questions, and another person knows what they are doing to some degree and can drive the game. Ryan was good at going in cold, being entertaining but asking the right questions.

I thought the Destiny quicklooks were a bit weird and I wonder if it's because Brad and Jeff were at roughly the same level of expertise. I've watched a lot of coverage and I still don't know exactly how skills and weapon upgrades work.

Wow, I think of all the games I've played on my 360 and Steam this year only one came out this year: Luftrausers. Weird. I've mainly been playing Games with Gold games and going through my Steam back catalog. I have a new PC so I'm ready for that awesome new PC game to hit. Just don't know what that would be.

I like Lord of the Rings, I liked Assassin's Creed 2 and 4, and I liked Batman Arkham Asylum. Hopefully this game will be the right mashup of those.

Not that interested the French Revolution or co-op assassins. More interested in that other Assassin's Game really.

Tabletop RPG's are awesome, and take very little investment to start. If you already have a group getting together face to face you should be set.

I would get the Pathfinder Beginner Box set, it's only like $35 bucks and it has everything you need to get started. You can go as crazy as you want from there.

Even if you switch to the new edition of D&D (which is nice) or another system, the map and tokens in the Pathfinder box are nice to have.

I backed their last kickstarter and have hundreds of these little 3d cave pieces I'm going to hand paint when they arrive in a couple of months.

Wow, Notch is majority stakehold, Mojang said. So at least 50% of 2.5 billion.

I just turned down the difficulty of Tomb Raider, about 75% of the way through, just because I didn't want to spend the time figuring out the right way to murder this batch of people, I want to get through the story. I've already spend a good amount of time murdering dozens and dozens of dudes, I get that, but that wasn't really what I was coming to the game for.

Awesome. Here I was sad there's no Destiny on PC and a bunch of games drop in my lap for almost nothing.

The only game I owned was Gone Home, but the Humble Bundle version includes the soundtrack (which is excellent), so I'll be using that key as well.

I'm wondering about the 360 version as well. I just got a new PC and will be playing games primarily on that, I'm skipping the XB1 and PS4 for the forseeable future.

Seems likely a PC version will come out eventually, but that might be a year. I did enjoy the beta weekend on the 360 so that's an option.

So far Destiny's not sounding like a must have right now.

I really enjoyed my time with Defiance. I kept hearing a lot of comparisons made, saying Destiny is basically a MMO version of Borderlands. Well that's exactly what Defiance is. Sure it has it's problems, but I don't think it got enough credit for what it did accomplish. It even pulled off the tv show tie in reasonably well.

Spooky Space Kook laughs at your ghost/alien dichotomy.
