The Dog doesn't die - Your character dies and you have to look at your dying character through the eyes of the dog, but the colour vision is all fucked up you can only see blues and yellows, because that's how dogs see. In the next game, CoD: Spectres, YOU ARE THE DOG ALL THE TIME.

No, you're not crazy. If Watch-Dogs was what you were interested in, then you are justified in holding off, especially if you think you can spend that money better somewhere else. Consoles aren't any good if you can't play the games you want on them. Hold off on buying it if Watch Dogs was the only thing you were considering.
You see, the thing is, it's lopsided. You remark about how you want individualism respected - sure, women can dress as they want, and some choose to dress with less clothing rather than more. But in video games we see an abundance of very revealing outfits for women. Also, most of the characters are designed by men.
This is probably important to people who use these features. I've never heard of DLNA until now... it's some sort of proprietary Sony thing? Except for the Playstation, I've never had an interest in anything Sony makes. I mean, seriously, their TV's are massively overpriced - the Playstation is the only thing Sony makes that's worth buying, everything else they make tends to be horrifyingly overpriced, which is why they're being slaughtered by Samsung and LG in the consumer goods market. Actually, I think their eReader is pretty good as well, but they're still a couple hundred bucks more than their competitors (I have a Sony eReader - it's good... but perhaps not 360 dollars good). And don't get me started on their abysmal phones.
I'm not saying Sony doesn't make good products, it's just that others make similar products for less.
Anyway, since I almost never buy any Sony products or anything from the Sony Store except for games, I've never used DLNA and most of the rest of the world hasn't either. Maybe Japanese folks are more familiar with DLNA and use it more frequently, but I'm pretty sure most of us in the West don't really use DLNA.... given that it's the first time I've heard of the bloody thing.
No YouTube upload on launch day? Eh.
No CD support? Who.... who uses CDs? DVDs is where it's at. MP3 players. USB sticks. I haven't used a CD in.... what.... 5 years? I think I used a CD ONCE 5 years ago...and that was to get old information off so I could put it on a DVD.
The external HD stuff actually IS somewhat concerning. I don't like having to delete and re-download digital titles from the Playstation Store. If they supported external hard-drives then I could download them, keep them on the drive and just put them back whenever I wanted to play. I suppose they're doing this to force us to buy their terribly overpriced "memory stick DUO" or whatever the hell they're calling their stupid proprietary memory crap.
I like my PS3. I even like my Vita. I'm absolutely getting a PS4. But sometimes Sony makes it hard for me to like them with their almost apple-like obsession with making you buy THEIR overpriced accessories and add-ons. I freaking hate Sony's memory sticks. Overpriced bullshit.
Yes because this game is really going to drive youngsters to travel to Norway or Japan to become epic whale hunters!
It's a game set in the past - a past that included whaling. The idea that this will result in some sort of whaling resurgence is absurd. First off, there is ZERO, and I mean ZERO commercial interest in Whaling. The Japanese only continue to whale because of pride (everyone tells them to stop, so they are doggedly going to keep on doing it). Virtually no one is buying whale meat in Japan, there is no market for whale oil or blubber. The Whaling industry in Japan is COMPLETELY reliant on the Government to keep it going. If the government didn't subsidize the whaling industry and force schools to buy whale meat to serve to students, there wouldn't be a whaling industry in Japan. The Japanese population themselves don't care much for whale meat. Nor does any country that I know of. Whaling is an inefficient way of making money - so inefficient that it DOESN'T make money.
Assassin's Creed's Whaling mini-game is not going to jump start the whaling industry. PETA are doing this for attention - get their name into the headlines, remind people that they still exist.
It's good. It's not bad - but people are giving it poor scores due to the bugs on the PC and due to the fact that it's just not quite as good as the other games. I don't think it's a bad game... I don't think it's great either though.
Killzone 1 was a product of over-ambition and is generally regarded as a pretty dismal game by those who played it. I honestly would not bother.
In the USA, your minimum wages are so abysmal that tips are borderline necessary for the servers to have any decent standard of living. So long as my service wasn't actively terrible, I'd tip. Food is so much cheaper in the US than in Australia, that tipping a server will bring the price up to what I usually would pay for in Australia (our currencies are roughly worth the same these days). So I would tip, even if the service was average. In fact, I PREFER average service. I prefer it if the server just gives me the food (not rudely), but just hands it over and leaves without a word. I don't like it when the server tries to act all "buddy-buddy" with me - I sympathize with the fact that they have to act nice for the customer, but it always bothered me since it's so obviously fake.
But yeah, if I lived in the US, I would tip people so long as they weren't actively rude or really bad at their job.
It has a robot in it. In particular, a robot voiced by Kevin Spacey. It is one of my favorite films of all time.
Isn't the whole point of our justice system rehabilitation? Hopefully the guy is better.
Rehabilitation is just one of the goals of a modern justice system. Protection from people with sick compulsions is another. We lock up people like Ted Bundy, not because we really think he can be reformed, but because people like Ted Bundy will never stop killing people. This pillow-case rapist will not stop assaulting people. They let him out once, he immediately went back to doing what he did. If he's in jail, he can't rape the good people of California.
