My favorite thing of this generation is Steam Sales. Buying and having a chance to play lots of games at low low prices is too sweet. I can only hope the console makers learn a few lessons from Steam's success.
Second best thing is PS+. Same idea (not as cheap) but with free games to boot.
No, the people I know don't know anything about games and I'm not sure what I want anyway. Additionally, I'd feel weird if any gift giver paid more for a game that I knew I could get cheaper on Steam or some online sale. So, I usually say get me a gift certificate to Bestbuy or something similar. As crazy as it sounds, I've reached the point in my life where I prefer getting socks, underwear, sweaters, etc...over games. Buy me the necessities that I am too lazy or too busy to get myself.
Sad and so young. My condolences to his family and friends. Since it appears he was the passenger in this tragic accident, I feel worse for the way he passed if that makes any sense. If he had been the driver, at least I could have felt he was in control of his own destiny.
Mmm, I don't know. Personally, I think more people are excited to see another Avengers movie. The bad taste of the prequels still lingers in many people's memories, while the Avengers left many with a positive impression. Mind you, the TV show may squander some of that but the wider movie-going audience won't be as affected by it. The Avengers was the last "super hit" raking in a billion and a half dollars world wide. Maybe by the time Disney gets around to releasing The Avengers II, the superhero genre will be spent, but considering that Iron Man 3 did over a billion, Thor is at a 500,000 million after 3 weeks, and Captain America Winter Soldier looks kick-ass, there still might be some life left in the genre. Besides, the Marvel stuff is still going full force while when was the last time we saw anything new Star Wars (games not included)? I think these Marvel movies are the new Star Wars.
But, for me, The Incredibles 2 will remain my most anticipated sequel ever. Damn it, where's my Incredibles 2!?
