I don't really mind that less games are coming out.

I think sony wanted to wait and see if having driveclub and almost nothing else really hurt them this holiday.

Sure, MS "sold more" but they did so at such great expense and with so many giveaways that it's hard to call it much of a victory, and Sony resumes outselling them right away in January.

I think they decided that rather than rush Uncharted 4, just give it the room it needs to really be done well and polished and holiday will be fine with their momentum, 3rd party games, and smaller games.

Even if the games themselves are given an exception having things like "Disney's Aladdin" and "Donkey Kong" on there ensures this will be taken down quickly.

Even if they're shitty old dos versions they "misrepresent the brand" or some crap and they'll have them removed for no reason.

I love the app and have been using it for years.

But since upgrading to lollipop on my nexus 7 2013 I downloaded metal gear scanlon 2 part 11 on low quality and its saying "playback failed your device may not be capable of playing this file"

I've never had issue with even HD video downloads from the app. What's up?

you do this, you better swear to me we get a steady stream of awesome Vinny content just like we did when Patrick moved.

I'm resurrecting this topic from the dead because I've learned to love the souls series and am finally going back to Demons Souls to play it blind.

Have killed about 5 bosses and having a great time watching the Breaking Brad playthrough as I go through the game.

Like most people said it's all about patience and tactics. Very rewarding.

It is actually really fun - the realistic modes are very tense.

You don't even know when you actually kill an enemy a lot of the time.

Sales make sense for games that have been on the market a long time or performed poorly at release.

If you're not selling copies then people aren't playing it at all. It doesn't matter if they don't play it much when its on sale. At least they play it or have a chance to play it. And you make some money vs no money.

It also works the opposite way - if I missed out on some early discount and need to pay more now to experience the game i probably wont bother. It feels like a "bad deal" to pay more than someone else did.

I hope somebody makes a joke about "10 things better this year" someday

@jgf: overclock on my 2700k to 4.5 ghz helped framerate a lot.

Well i'm sure the guy was repeating whatever his training manual told him about the product.

I was more surprised they weren't trained to try to tell me why I should want a kinect, rather than simply that I should get in line with microsoft's grand design for their console already.

Are all giant bomb comments this hateful? I'll stick to the videos.
