I played a TON of Destiny before my friends and I decided to give up on it. It's just not a very good game. I spent the entire time giving it the benefit of the doubt because of Bungie. Once skulls are introduced and the challenge ramps up a bit, it gets really fun. But then you're playing the same few missions over and over before the whole thing just falls apart due to lack of content. I think I stopped around level 28 or so...I suppose Halo-quality AI would have helped with the repetition...

Seeing PT on that list is great. I tried putting it on a list here, but I couldn't find the game in the database.

The lack of Sunset Overdrive will make me shake my fist at any list. That game is bananas fun in ways that games just aren't any more.

Nah. There are so many good games out there that delays make me feel a little relieved. It's hard to find the time to squeeze all this in. My GOG and Steam backlogs are over 100 games deep. My livingroom closet has at least a dozen wrapped games in it.

I welcome any and all delays, frankly.

I just want to see the Xbox One get Street Fighter V Special Champion Edition and a Genesis 6-button controller a year later. I'd feel young again.

If the game's better for it, I'm happy. I can wait. My backlog is shameful.

My son is trying to switch Dune Bug's upgrade path. In Giants, I seem to recall doing this by pausing and going to Skylander Management. I don't see an option to switch paths there. I quick Google search lead me to people talking about switching paths from the store, but I still see no options. If anyone knows how to do this, I'd appreciate some help. Thanks!

May be nostalgia, it's a hell of a thing.

I just remember Splinter Cell and Chaos Theory being ridiculously smooth for their time. The Prince of Persia remake from that generation feels this way, too.

Ground Zeroes feels slightly off...I last played MGS4 maybe a year ago and may have liked controlling Snake in that a bit better. Either way, it feels good enough. I played through MGS1 and 2 HATING the mechanics built around that camera (and did so happily).

@pyromagnestir: HA-HAA!

I described the game after being spotted as a Benny Hill chase scene just missing Yakkity Sax, when talking to a friend earlier...

I would have imported Ride of the Valkyries like I did for Steel Battalion back on the first Xbox...but Konami saved me the trouble.

Off the top of my head...

For some reason Andrew WK's Party Hard or It's Time to Party feel like they'd be hilarious - party-copter inbound...

I'm on a Gogol Bordello kick, so I might try Not a Crime, Immigraniada, or We Rise Again.

Tom Waits' Goin' out West...maybe Fish in the Jailhouse...

CCR's Fortunate Son is kinda obvious and has been brought up, but is always worth mentioning for this sort of thing.

...maybe the audio of Robert Duvall's "I just want my surfboard" message from Apocalypse Now...

EDIT: Got it for PS4 since it looked MUCH better than the X1 version...shame if I can't do least they got me my Wagner...

It reminds me of a SLIGHTLY clunky Chaos Theory, though that may be the rainy/rocky/small base setting along side the suit, goggles, and night vision sound.

I'm really digging it. Beautiful game, plays better than any prior MGS game, and this demo/game should prove plenty of opportunity to kick the game around and see how the systems hold up.

I am annoyed by soldiers not always recognizing dead or knocked out enemies, and the idea of alerts winding down feels dated. It's nice to see higher level alerts have a lasting impact...tanks being stationed and whatnot.

I've only played through once, so some impressions may not be totally accurate, but I'm digging it quite a bit in the short term.

I dunno...I built a new PC and bought both new consoles in November. I don't regret any of them, though I've barely touched my PS4.

The Xbox has Killer Instinct which is a really cool fighter. I really dig Ryse (which surprised me, I expected mediocrity with a side of eye-candy). Dead Rising 3 is great when paired with co-op with a friend and Upload Studio.

Titanfall...I'm not sold on it having legs, but GODDAMN if it isn't crazy fun in the short-term.

PS4 is picking-up steam with Ground Zeroes and Infamous this week, so that's a cool start (Resogun aside, the PS4 exclusive line-up has been just bad, IMO).

Honestly, if you're prone to naval gazing and regret, the PC is the way to go; great quality software, innovation you won't find on the consoles, and amazing sales. I've found reasons to love my PC and Xbox and suspect I'll sweeten on Sony's console this week. Now Nintendo just needs to win me over...maybe Bayonetta 2.
