Honestly, I'd say no. I have a PS3 and a PS4, and had a Vita until recently. The remote play with Vita stuff never felt right on those sticks to me, so I never used it. There have been solid games on the PS4, but I don't feel like I've played a single thing that's justified my purchase thus far. I'd say wait for that Destiny bundle. It looks like a really good deal, and you'll be able to jump in with stuff like Far Cry, Evolve and Driveclub soon after it comes out.

I've watched a lot of anime in my time, and I don't find a lot of those generalizations to be too far off base. All the power fantasy plotlines and fan service was why I stopped trying to engage with that stuff in the first place, because even serious shows would often be marred by random panty shots or whatever. Having said that, I'm still very open to the medium if someone recommends me some stuff. I've been meaning to stream Tokyo Godfathers on Netflix for forever. Also been meaning to check out Princess Mononoke again to see if it's really the incredible film my childhood mind remembers. I think I'm at a ripe time to get back into anime, because that One Piece QL actually looked pretty great to me and was much more whimsical than most of the stuff we'd see from American companies.

As for my recommendation, I'd probably say Fullmetal Alchemist or Eureka 7. I don't remember how anime-y they are, but I remember them being fantastic stories above all else.

No word on it yet, but I've had the exact same thought. The potential for getting around the environment using paint splatters is huge.

I thought it looked super neat! (And yes, nothing like a party game.) In fact, it was one of the coolest things I saw at all of E3. The traversal mechanics look fast and super fun, and it's a new IP from Nintendo which makes it exciting by default.

@mb: I believe they said they're targeting 30 FPS for the game.

I'm not usually a framerate snob, but in racing games your really can notice a difference sometimes. Sure is purty, though.

What the actual fuck Microsoft. At this point every single ambition they had for that thing one year ago has been thrown in the trash. What will this console look like another year from now?

Almost can't believe there was all that build-up, time away from the industry, etc. just for another arena shooter.

I continue to be weirdly excited for this. Now where's our Skull Kid announcement?

From what I've seen, it looks like social play is the big push for this next generation. Mechanically speaking, a lot of developers can't find ways to significantly improve on what shooters did last generation, so expanding the reach to try and rope in more players, and hopefully curb used game sales in the process, seems like the next logical step. When you really think about it, how else could you improve upon the mechanics of a shooter at this point? It's a tough position for devs to be in, and it bums me out too, because I'm not particularly interested in the first big wave of social shooters like Destiny or The Division.

I ended up buying an Xbox One, the only of the systems I didn't have yet (someone please help me), a week or 2 after E3. Its OS is an abomination, but thankfully I don't have to deal with it much thanks to the quick start, and its exclusives are far more interesting to me than my PS4's. The Xbox One currently seems to have more in the vein of wacky third-person action games, which is definitely my jam, so that's nice. Dead Rising 3 is my favorite game so far this generation, and I'm really stoked for Sunset Overdrive, Crackdown 3 and Scalebound. So yeah, I guess it's worked out well so far.
