I am sitting here kinda stunned and the only contact I had with Ryan was a cheeky email about movies that I hadn't seen and one he hadn't. I hadn't seen any Fast and Furious and he came back with he hadn't seen Shawshank Redemption. It was a nice wee chuckle between two people who never met or indeed lived on the same side of the world. I will miss his Bombcast hosting the most every week and all my thoughts go to his new Wife and his family. Man what a bummer. RIP
I've been reading books longer than I have been playing video games (or in any case more consistently). Video games stories are a joke so I don't go to them for my Story needs - I go to novels for that. Put a gun to my head and say pick books or video games and its an easy choice. I would miss video games but hey I read more novels than I play games. That said I don't read novels about video games very much or ever really. My Kindle is my most precious piece of technology.
its a Naughty Dog thing - they have long loads at the start and then none when you are playing. Uncharted 2 and 3 did it and now TLoU does it. Its a design decision to have none after the initial load. I'll take a 3 min load at the start if it means none at all after that.
I killed all 3 with my bare hands - no hesitation, didn't see anyone go for anything, I just barged in and killed them all in the most brutal way. I didn't consider not killing them. They were going to kill Ellie and Joel could not let that happen and I was in total agreement with him. Joel did not think it was a fair trade and I agree with him. After what happened to his Daughter - not at the hands of an infected but a human - and all the terrible things he has seen and done to survive I did not disagree with him not caring if Humanity finds a cure. Humanity killed his Daughter. End of.
if I really want a game then I buy it new Day One - that is it. Any other game therefore falls into the category of not wanting it. What I do then is if I see any of those games going at a price, Used or New, that I think is worth it in case I don't like it I buy it. That means I buy used games and new games. The amount of new games wholly depends on how much I want a game.
pssst Hey guys, guys, you can play COD, Battlefield, Madden and Fifa on the PS4 too. Show Microsoft that you can wait for the DLC packs. Its not hard. Just have patience. Tricky I know. Shame that Titanfall is not coming (as far as we know) to PS4 but I think I can manage without it. It is a shame though - maybe EA will do what they did with Mass Effect.
its too expensive for me (UK price of 668 Dollars) and none of the games are enough to make me break my tiny wee bank. I assume the PS4 is going to be along the same lines in price so boy howdy if they can show maybe 2 or 3 games that get me excited for the new gen then maybe, maybe, I can swing it but 668 Dollars in shiny UK Pounds is a lot for a brick when offline.
