@tyrrael: While I appreciate your point of view, I think saying "most people aren't going to notice a huge difference when playing" is a little presumptuous...especially in this community.

I completely agree with him. Sure, 60 fps is better and it's probably a big part of twitch games like CoD or street fighter but devs make sure those games run at 60 fps on consoles anyway. A solid 30 fps in all other type of games is all I need, especially if they dropped 60 in favor of a better open world, better AI or really impressive visuals.

For me I agree with the notion that for the majority of the gaming community don't notice 30 vs 60 fps and don't see it as a major issue. What matters is if the frame rate is stable, because it really bothers me when the FPS dips. All I want is the consistent stable FPS. And I use to play WoW on a really old laptop at 20 fps, which for me was fine as long as it stayed at 20 fps.

As for the OP, I would suggest the PS4 as well. It sounds like that he wants stability and consistent performance which is what the consoles are there for. Consoles are good because developers can optimize them for the machine. It's a little rocky for the games now, but developers will get used to it as more and more games get made for them. Yeah, PCs can go above and beyond, but as others have said sometimes games are just not made to run that well on PCs because of the lack of optimization due to an infinite number of configurations. I don't think you can go wrong with getting either a PS4 or PC, but for you OP, PS4 might be your best choice for now.

Living up to the name! Where the hell was it? Has anyone heard any information? I assume the beta is still going on in Japan this Summer, but I haven't heard any real details.

Also Dragon Age looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Probably at TGS. Capcom doesn't seem to be showing much at E3.

You mean Dragon's Dogma looks like Dragon Age. One precedes the other, but I know what you're getting at :D

No, what that person said makes sense. The new Dragon Age is coming after Dragons Dogma. So they are saying how it seems like the new DA has taken some influence from DD.

I knew what he meant, hence why I said I know what he's getting at.

Man are people being that impatient? As others have said, it takes awhile for the truly amazing games to start coming out. Just because the development of games have been made "easier" due to the tools being more akin to developing on PC, doesn't mean that it is instantly going to translate. It's going to take time for devs to fully utilize a consoles potential, I mean again like others have said, look at what devs have been able to eek out of the last gen consoles.

It isn't as pretty as a lot of their PC counterparts, but it's still fairly impressive seeing as how that hardware they are using is like 7-8 years old and were probably planned and being developed a year or two ahead of time. Wait until next year when the first batch of AAA developers start putting out their games like the Naughty Dog, Rocksteady, Kojima Productions, etc..

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person capable of watching something I have no interest in for like eight minutes out of two hours without melting from sheer rage.

You and me, looked that part sucked, move on, the rest was pretty great people.

Not only you two, me as well.

Fairly tepid E3, just like Jeff said it might be after seeing the preview event. There are a couple of games Sony showed that I'm excited for, but I've already seen a lot of them and knew they were coming. But man, that middle part did seem to drag on a whole lot. For a second, I really thought Sony was going to go like "Now we're going to include a PS Eye camera in every box!" Then Project Morpheus came up and "Oh okay..." was my response. Not that I really even care about the camera though.

I really missed Jack Tretton, new guy wasn't bad, just missed that Jack Tretton, Jack Tretton-ness.

Bullshit. What does IGN Russia have to say about all this? Eh?

Exactly... IGN Russia.

Don't believe IGN's lies.

Anyone saying 2014 is the worst year, 1. We're only halfway through 2. We're also too close to 2014 (since it is still 2014) and a lot of the games are still fresh in our mind. Wait 4-6 months into 2015 to render judgment on 2014.

That being said, that's a really hard question. I remember there being bad parts of the year for gaming and usually that is during the summer. I'm just going to say 2000, I don't know why, I don't remember 2000 that well, there were probably a lot of memorable games. I just don't remember 2000.

They really should have just said, "Inspired by Chicago."

If you changed the bridges and the lightposts, the Chicago of Watchdogs could be Anywhere USA. The mountain areas are a giant WTF. The only time I've seen anything like that is when I went to Starved Rock. Over 90 minutes from the city.

Even though Sleeping Dogs had a condensed version of Hong Kong, it still felt like the Hong Kong I've been to.

This exactly how I felt about the setting as well. It didn't capture Chicago enough especially the landscape around it. It's like if you wanted to add mountains to a city without mountains and barely anything you would call hills, then choose a different city, because it's definitely not Chicago.
