Nintendo are still fucking idiots for naming it so similar to the Wii. If they had a brain they'd change the name ASAP.

It's the end of the show, I could say Game Over, but only a prick would say that.
If you don't know Charlie this quote sums him up: "It's the end of the show now, I'd say Game Over but only a prick would say that."
Really great show. They did their homework.
On now in the UK, check download sites soon I guess. Very funny with Charlie Brooker hosting. Many industry faces, comedians, TV & film stars, and including Gary Whitta!
Some games covered:
GTA, Last of Us, Shadow of the Colossus, Braid, Minecraft, CoD, many many more.
I think the online is fine, the world doesn't feel empty which is what I expected after the review. It'd be nice if you ran into more human racers/cops but because that doesn't happen constantly it kind of makes it more exciting when you notice an online id above a car.
...although I would definitely not complain if they patched in a higher player count
The same thing happened to me with Street Fighter. I had watched a few streams here and thought it looked fun, turns out I can barely do a 3-hit combo.
Oh man well Street Fighter is nearly impenetrable to outsiders at this point. If you're new to fighting games then forget it - the series has combos and game mechanics that have carried over from game to game over the past decade and are privy only to those who have played for as long. I made the same mistake with Street Fighter X Tekken, wanting to get into the series and fighting games in general, - especially since everyone bemoaned it for being really dumbed down. Well I still struggled with crossups, overheads, cancels, frame traps, just-frames or whatever it's called.. at some point I conceded that I'm simply not a fighting game type of person and will have to settle for admiring the games from afar.
As someone that was new to fighting games (more or less) and started with Street Fighter IV, I have to call bullshit here. It's nowhere near as hard as people make out and you do not need to know anything about frame traps or frames when starting out.
Especially SFIV, which is far more accessible than Third Strike and Super Turbo, pretty simple combos in those games are far harder in comparison to SFIV.
Fighting games scare people because they are more intimidating online (it's your fault you suck) and they seem super in-depth, but really you have to remember almost just as much in many RPGs.
Killer Instinct in particular is very basic in comparison to SFIV too, so I don't think anyone should be concerned.
They need to make a shirt that simply has multiple coloured squares with Vinny's interpretation of what each one is underneath.
