If Geoff Keighly wants to create a yearly show that celebrates the Gaming industry, maybe he should unallign himself from fucking spike tv and gametrailers. They go against everything that is great about this industry.
It's true. Keighley seemed to be the only one (I'm not counting the developers in attendance) on camera that seemed to give a damn about the subject. I think he'd be better served somewhere else. I don't why they continue to ask Joel McHale to do these kinds of things that he clearly has no interest in, and moreover, I don't know why he continues to accept (other than to get paid).
By buying the PS3 version on sale at Best Buy first, I nabbed Assassin's Creed IV for PS4 all in for $47.87. I had to jump through a few hoops to get there, but it worked. $25 off on the game was reduced to $17 after sales tax and the $10 upgrade fee on PSN. A game that would have, at full pop, cost me around $64 with sales tax cost $47.87.
I don't regret my purchase of a PlayStation 4. For me it wasn't a matter of "which one will I buy?," it was "which one will I buy first?" I, like a lot of people, was swayed by Sony's showing at E3. They were poised; they were not as complacent as the were last time around. After favoring my 360 most of this generation, I decided to give Sony the leg up and get a PS4 first. Then, that's where things got real dark. Watch Dogs delayed, DriveClub delayed. Two of the supposed "launch games" that practically sold me on the concept of next-gen were gone. I thought about cancelling my preorder and going after an Xbox. I decided to stick it out and thought "Well, there might be at least one thing on that machine I'll want to play." I bought the console with Need for Speed: Rivals (I fell off with Assassin's Creed years ago and it was the only game that appealed to me) and, for the most part, I've enjoyed it.
The more I use the console, the more it feels like Sony was riding the wave of terrible Microsoft press to hide the less-desirable parts of the console. I don't regret buying it. I just regret the fact that I'll be waiting another four or five months before I get to play Forza.
Honest question: can you guys take Polygon's website seriously? (nothing about the writing, I just mean the structure, layout, design of the website)
I still can't. It's so silly.
I agree. It feels like their first concern when designing the website was to make it the prettiest place on the internet. The Verge has kind of the same problem, but I'll still read the Verge because I enjoy the content.
I'm not very familiar with New York hotels, but I think that one in particular is famous for people having sex in front of the big windows. I'm also quite sure lots of people have had sex in that very room that Jeff was in.
Shame was one of my absolute favorite films from 2011, though. Some of Steve McQueen's best work (and I say that as someone who's seen 12 Years a Slave, which was still amazing).
Games at launch: NFS Rivals for sure, possibly Battlefield 4 or Killzone, depending primarily on my need to justify not canceling my preorder (Things got real dark after Watch Dogs and DriveClub were pushed back).
I do also have a Vita, but I mostly played multiplayer console games on 360. Do also mention Giant Bomb if you friend request me so I don't treat you like a random.
