Been playing the Xbox version and loving it so far. Plays well on a controller just like first one. Runs pretty smooth for the most part. Loading mission briefing is pretty hitchy though but that's just while it loads so no biggie. Looks real nice too. So far no real issues. Seems like a good port.

woah! That's sweet!!! I'm someone who really enjoys the Beast guys. I watch/listen to them well before the west coast guys so this is awesome. Plus Endurance Run with Dan is fantastic!! Welcome news.

Love you Ryan!!! Miss you and your presence.

But watching E3 After Hours coverage this year, I had a few moments, especially, weirdly enough, during the Jenga segments, seeing everyone coming and going, laughing and having such a good time, with even something as simple as Jenga, it made me laugh obviously but also smile and think about Ryan Davis and how he hosted them, he certainly has left a lasting legacy with Giant Bomb. It started simple with just Jeff and Ryan and it's bloomed into something way bigger. And those E3 shows with all those guests and industry friends, it's the ultimate showcase.

RIP Ryan. Never met you but damn were you a good friend.

Spoilers!!! Sorry, typing from a phone doesn't allow me to cover it up.

Just finished the game too. Went back and got the secrets as well. I'm enjoying reading everyone's thoughts and opinions. This game is really something. A rare thought provoking journey. I sat and stared at the end as the credits rolled. Look at the blob. It looked almost lifeless. Gave me the impression that you died at the end so close to the ocean and freedom.

It really made me think. It's not often games do that for me. So much water!!! I NEED to know why!?! Why is everything flooded and why are there so many parts that look like ships!? Were they planning on floating away at some point and it all went wrong? The whole game was a giant question mark in terms of this dystopian environment. I kept asking: What brought them to this!? Was it ever normal like we're accustomed to or is this the only way this world knows of? I love games and other media that make me think like that. Ask how humanity progressed to this point and allow me to form my own conclusions. Let's me write my own prologue book in a way.

A brilliant game. One that I would put up there with Portal. A short experience but better for it. Just amazing. Loved it.

No thank you. They're terrible. Slow, unpracticed, and 9 times out of 10, they're dumb question. There's a reason the email questions works so well. They're screened and looked at beforehand.

So just no. No thank you.

Hey!! That's wicked!! I'm stoked actually. Love me some Star Trek. Heard decent things about this mmo. But I'm a console gamer. This is awesome news for me. Seems like a great way to really get into an MMO. And the Star Trek part is just icing on the cake.

Gotta go with a classic RTS. I'm talking old School age of empires. Not too complicated but rts enough that I can free build my base. Gather resources. Build up a crazy army. All that good stuff. None of these F2P models a lot of games have adopted. No timers. Every time I see a game on my phone that looks like an rts, it's just a Clash of Clans clone. And some of that is spilling over to the consoles.

Microsoft. Age of Empires. Get on it.

Absolutely. And as a guy who's going digital only, I'm glad to see the Xbox is offering the demo bundle :)

As someone who's played it, I say watch. The gameplay is nothing to be concerned about missing. My least favourite MGS.

Bring it on! I love it. Any reason to check out more games. My philosophy this year is the play and support more games than ever! Even if that means I don't finish them of even end up liking them. I got sad at the end of previous years when looking at GOTY and noticing I could count all the games I played on my fingers.

It's March, and I've already played more games than last year.
