How is it that I can go to Amazon right now and order a brand new copy of Too Human for $20?

Ryse. A ton of fun. And I'm having a great time with the multiplayer.

"I don’t know if it’s possible for Kinect to learn a primary voice over time, but that would be awfully useful in the future."

I think it can learn a primary voice over time. If this is any indication, the 360 version of Kinect did indeed learn my voice over time. It will not respond to commands from my wife and son, but it correctly interprets my voice commands 99% of the time.

Really didn't imagine them launching after PS4. I thought Jeff Gerstmann's idea was solid; launch on the 5th with Call of Duty. Probably won't really make a difference but that's some missed synergy.

Or throw in Call of Duty:Ghost for free with U.S. pre-orders.

I would stoked to hear this news but I'm already set on picking up a PS4. (That €100 difference...)

If you're a FIFA fan, getting that thrown in with the console offsets the price difference a bit...

Greetings fellow Dark Souls addicts. I recently joined the club on 360. ~70 hours in now. I roll with a upgraded Raw Great Axe, Elite Knight armor, and Spider Shield. Mainly a strength build but I wear covetous serpent ring and havel's ring so I can still roll at a decent speed. This game is an old school D&D players dream come true. Praise the sun!

I've been a Bombcast listener for years and I've always appreciated Ryan's knowledge base, insights, and excellent sense of humor. I had the privilege of briefly meeting Ryan at PAX Prime a few years ago. It was the last day of the show. He was obviously exhausted and hung over (by his own admission). Yet he still went out of his way to be friendly and engage in some chit chat with this "fan". More recently, we even exchanged a few random tweets about Daft Punk's RAM. So, I guess I barely knew him, but this still hit me like a ton of bricks. I'm shocked and saddened by his untimely demise. I always enjoyed listening to you on the bombcast, and the one time we met you were a class act. RIP Ryan Davis. RIP.

I was always going to buy an xbox one, but now I feel a little better about it. I see Kinect as a value add, and I enjoyed the original Kinect (Happy Action Theater, Sports, and Dance Central are all winners). The only thing I don't like, that Microsoft could easily change, is their stance towards Indie/small developers. Let them self publish. I want to be able to play Fez II or whatever Johnathan Blow comes up with Day 1.

I think anyone who played this game has at least one great memory of a drunken late night Rock Band romp with a bunch of good friends going nuts on everyones favorite songs. Such a unique videogame experience, and one of the few I've been able to share with my family and friends who don't count gaming as a hobby.

I'd love to see statistics on Rock Band DLC purchases. My guess is 90% of the total were either late Saturday night/early Sunday morning booze fueled buys. I know mine were :-)

Well. I did buy it, and was enjoying it for about 15-20 minutes when it crashed to a system message saying the game stopped unexpectedly. I hadn't saved my game and I was already feeling a little turned off by the idea of starting over - fortunately there appears to be an autosave so I lost very little. Looks like Jeff (according to Twitter) had issues with it crashing as well.

I'll give it a few weeks and hope it gets fixed. Like what I see so far, certainly worth 3 bucks.

Looks like the developer is working on fixing that crash problem - see here (they're also looking for input): postlaunch
