360 controller, but i can tell sometimes it's just not quick enough against a mouse. But I don't really care, i just think the game is fun and if i couldn't play with a controller i wouldn't have even bought it tbh

I guess I've yet to have one of those matches where I think to myself, "Wow! I just got merc'd with a mouse and keyboard player. Battlefield 4, on the other hand, was quite the opposite.

@stryker1121: I just think that the show is trying to make space, science, and the information about them interesting and easily palatable for everyday audiences. I think was fun and interesting. It made science a much more friendly thing for people to understand. All of these things are good. It's also nice to see intelligent, thoughtful shows on TV right after shows like Family Guy. It's nice to get a little more PBS onto network TV.

Funny you say Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane is an executive Producer of Cosmos and was apparently integral to getting the show on Fox.

I was about to post the same. Apparently he did a lot of the voices in the animated portion as well.

The comical italian-american accent was courtesy of MacFarlane. They really could have done without that cartoon. It seemed out of place to -in the middle of this science program- have some overly dramatic 20 minute sequence about how the badly church persecuted this one dude for his ideas. For fuck's sake, they had a inquisition and burning at the stake scene where they basically painted him as some sort of holy martyr for science. It was really distasteful but I guess that's what you get when the creator of Family Guy tries to rework an educational PBS series.

NDT is a good host, he wasn't trying to be Sagan, he clearly has a lot of reverence for the man and the original program, I just hope the rest of the series is less hyperbolic. I realize the aim of the show is to try to engage people who aren't convinced of the value of science or are simply unaware of it's importance in our history but I just hope it doesn't turn into a sideshow in the process.

Wow, we saw that whole scene completely differently. I really enjoyed the whole cartoon element. I thought it made the whole thing much more interesting. It added a little variety to the show. It seemed to almost have an anime style to it.

I think they did a very good job of showing him saying, "My god is bigger than yours." These evil men did not worship any kind of god, they worshiped power and war. I think they did a good job of showing that this man was a bright symbol in religion and science. Because he could see that a god did make this universe but "his" god was much bigger than the church's idea of god. A god that is just what humanity has imagined god is. This cartoon guy knew that "his" god made the universe. Not just this asinine universe that revolved around earth.

They are making a statement. They are saying that science has taught us much more than religion has. It is okay to be religious, but when it starts to effect our ability to move forward with science and education because some people want to hold onto this hope that the whole world was made just a few thousand years ago. I think they are doing a very good job portraying the ways in which religion is holding us back. They are even making it easy for people to imagine that god might have created the universe in 7 days. When they used that calendar to represent all of time, that was masterful, because it showed human existence was so inconsequential when it comes to such a grand scale. If god created all of that, the boobs who wrote the books that we currently follow are too small for us too.

I think they did a good job of showing that religion has it's faults, but a belief is god is perfectly normal.

Does anybody know how many feats are in the game? I have 51 or so, I think. I really should quit playing this game.

I don't like it. Cosmetic stuff feels like a cheap gimmick, and new content (levels, items, etc) should at least be sizable DLC rather than piecemeal add-ons.

The "time-saver" stuff? You're basically admitting that the activity you created is not worth my time. You're selling me garbage and then asking me to pay again to have it cleaned up.

I agree with most of your points, except for the cosmetic stuff. What about a game like Dota 2; a free game that asks the player to only buy cosmetic stuff? In a scenario like this you are, in theory, paying the developer back for your enjoyment of the game.

I am really amazed by how many people in the Giantbomb community are completely against micro-transactions. I know it is a skewed group, but I guess I just didn't expect so many people to be against micro-transactions in any form at all.

@lego_my_eggo: I am not sure about the pre-order cars. It looks like the original Playstation.blog post, showed that you could purchase 1 million credits and in the picture above you can see that all of the cars are pretty standard fare.

I enjoyed GT5, but there were so many disappointments after playing both Forza 2 and Forza 3 that when you compare the games you can really see that in menu usability and online options Forza really wins overall. I am not sure if I will wait for GT7 or go ahead and buy GT6. But, like you, I'm gonna wait and see. Hell! I didn't buy GT5 until Spec II came out in Japan.

As long it is optional I don't see any problem with it. IT is only problematic if Cars are behind this DLC wall not that ou can make it more easier to get these cars through buying virtual credits.

That is actually what they are doing here. Those credits that will be spent on the cars will be bought from Sony. You will be buying 1 million credits from them for $10 or $20. I'm not sure how much exactly because that information has not been announced.

Well im ready for microtransactions but i wont spending it on ps3. I hope driveclub can satisfy my need.

Yeah, I'm not sure how many people are looking to spend serious money on, what now is, last generation hardware and software. I guess this is a great test bed for Sony to see if this kind of stuff might work in DriveClub or other games.

A guy in another topic suggested Clean Asia! which is by Cactus. I guess it shares some stylistic similarities, but it's a bullet hell game. I've never played it, so I can't vouch for it's quality.
