@bobbydigital1004: Are you able to get a debit VISA? I have an old checking account that I wasn't using, so I got a debit visa and just turned it into a "paying for my recurring subscriptions" card.

If my games are in the evenings and I am able to just be put with a team, I'm in. Even with my heavy homework load I can squeeze in a few games when need be.

I'm on PS4. PSN: marcaractac

This sale is an absolute farce. Tried to get a 48" TV when it went on sale for $299. Hit add to cart the very second the sale started, instantly "sold out". That I can stomach, but it is still in stock for its normal price. They made it seem they would discount stuff until it is gone. But instead they allocate a small number of each product to give the illusion of a huge sale. Pretty disappointing.

I quite enjoyed it. It was better than anything besides T1 and T2. I enjoyed it more than the latest Avengers movie.

This is basically how I felt. I'm glad it exists. If anything just to have Terminator hit a note higher than T3 or Salvation. Wile I get it is gonna be compared to T1 and T2 due to being the same franchise, anyone who is gonna judge this movie based on those just shouldn't bother watching to begin with. My expectations were in check before going in, and I enjoyed it more than I thought. Because face it, the trailers made it seem more awful than it had any chance of being. Also 100% agree that it was more enjoyable than the latest Avengers movie. If Genisys did one thing right, it was the comedy relief. T3 is a good example on how to not do comedy in a Terminator movie.

As for those complaining about time travel, there really is no point. Time travel in stories will always create plot holes. Terminator 2 is my all time fav movie. It has plot holes. Pretty big ones. But despite that, it is an amazing movie. People need to remember that.

In terms of a Terminator movie, Genisys is middle of the pack. In terms of the originals, it is not good. Not bad, but not good. In terms of just a regular-ass action flick, it is a lot of fun.

If these three things apply to you, you may enjoy this movie:

1) Now that it obviously will not come close to being anywhere near as amazing as the first 2.

2) Be the type of person who doesn't get caught up into every little flaw a movie has, and can just have fun and enjoy it.

3) Be fine with an underwhelming performance by Jai Courtney, which is obviously to be expected. It wasn't terrible acting, just certain scenes would have had much more of an impact with an actor who can deliver emotion.

Arnold rocked as the T-800. No over the top goofiness like T3. If you can overlook its flaws, it was a fun flick.

When push comes to shove, a few emotes is a really dumb thing to get upset over. For those who already have the game, it is simple: don't buy it. Not having these stupid emotes will not affect the game in any way. I'm definitely not gonna waste my time getting outraged over an interview that was typed out and posted online. It is just all around a really stupid thing for people to get upset over.

If you think it's just about a couple of emotes, that's fine. For the people who follow the industry and take interest with stuff like SKUs, price models, and the evolving business of gaming, this is all very fascinating. Destiny has become this petri dish for a new way of making and selling annualized franchises. It's big news, it's big business and it hasn't really ever happened before at this mass market level.

I follow the industry very closely, and I always have. I'm also someone who plays Destiny quite regularly with friends. I just think some folks are getting wayyyy bent out of shape over a text interview. With a developer who is constantly being pushed over and over again over meaningless exclusive content. If I were getting hounded over the same thing, I'd probably have a similar response: "If you want this content so bad that you'll kick up such a fuss over it, then buy it. Either that or just shut up about it."

I am not gonna look too much into an interview where all the nuance of the conversation may be completely lost, yet posted in such a way that can garner lots of attention from a group of gamers, who have shown time and time again that they are very easy to rile up.

I cannot wait for the final build of Oculus to come out. Day one purchase for me, as I want my term project to involve VR (I'm a computer engineering student). Of course I will also be beefing up my pc around the same time. Hololens interests me as far as term projects goes as well. It is all very exciting!

I'll also get Morpheus, as I have a PS4 as well.

I kept saying this in chat last night WHAT IS COMING IN 2015?!!! For me there is still no reason to buy a PS4 this year and as this generation continues to rumble on there comes a point where you contemplate not picking up a particular console. I feel like yes they did a great job of delivering fan service. The Shenmue thing is kind of shady. As Jeff kept saying it's not their thing and they were keenly aware of that but they want to take the praise for bringing back Shenmue when in reality if they wanted to they could have funded it. Perhaps they will supply additional funding post kickstarter who knows.

Also how was their one last thing Disney Infinity?

The thing about funding a game like Shenmue, is that investors need more than just a few thousand people flooding Twitter and message boards to be willing to cough up money to fund a game like this. Especially in 2015. The kickstarter was less about the money, and more about seeing if the fans would put their money where their mouth is. Which they most certainly did. To raise that much money that quickly through kickstarter, investors won't see funding this game as much of a risk as they may have originally.
