Yeah, it'll probably be easy to find nominees.

But Dark Souls 2 is gonna win.

Can someone explain to me what it is about DS2 that people seem to not like? It reviewed well and I've heard so much great stuff about it, but for some reason on this site it has a bit of a negative air associated with it. What's the big deal? I haven't played it yet, but I am a huge fan of Dark and Demon's.

I actually found MGS1 too be the least interesting (AKA most boring) of the entire series. It hit its prime with MGS2 and should have ended there because 2 was brilliant. Completely brilliant story and gameplay.

Sony's online stuff is pretty wack. If your credit card address isn't absolutely perfect it'll reject it over and over again for what seems like no reason at all.

Yeah i needed to pay using paypal for the longest time, then one day my credit card just started working again...now i have a problem with my bank that if i buy more than 2 games in quick succession (like during a sale) my card gets blocked lol. Cant win...

Not only that but it's completely backwards with region stuff too, I've been pretty vocal about this. With Xbox One you can change your region every 3 months. With PS4/3/Vita etc once you create that account you are locked to that region forever. It's completely bullshit. That Microsoft lets you change your region so freely and relatively often is baffling that Sony is so behind on this. This continues to affect me as I need to go through a 3 step process in order to buy anything from PSN, as I live in Canada but bought my Vita (and many downloadable games) in Germany.

Still disappointed about no Lucas, but Shulk more than makes up for that.

Hey guys, I'm just wondering how the 360 version of Destiny plays. I have heard almost nothing about the last gen version, there is another thread on here about the PS3 version but that's not what I'm looking for. Is it perfectly playable, what is missing, etc from your first few days with the game?

@hunter5024: I consider it an evolution because it takes elements from the past and expands upon them. Whether that is for the good or for the bad is totally subjective, but I happen to love it because I found the combat system entirely skill based.

@milkman: That is still very different. I'm talking about parity between new mobile phones that play games. My point is that Oculus is the main reason for that article, not Samsung. Oculus is in a whole other league than this and in a new, exciting field of gaming (regardless of how ridiculous the Gear VR is going to be)... whoever the fuck Oculus would have partnered with would have replaced Samsung's name in the article, simple as that. This right here is a yearly, expected, yet somehow exciting (?) new iPhone and gets a news article. Makes no sense.

Patrick, I'm completely disappointed by this article which seems like a copy paste of the press release. If it was you telling us your thoughts than great but I'm not alone when I don't come to giant bomb for a copied and pasted press release for whatever company.

Rorie I don't care if it's not about gaming, I come for the personalities and opinions not for press releases like this.

What are you even talking about?

Is this a copied and pasted press release? What about this? How about this one? This? What about these, huh?

This is no different than any other news story posted to this site. Patrick must have some serious deep breathing exercises or something because if I was him, I would have exploded on you people years ago.

The problem is there is never anything of the like for Samsung, LG, HTC, Nokia, etc etc devices on the website. In the mobile sphere, we only get news from Apple, and that is questionable. In the examples you've provided he is writing about all different things within the console and handheld gaming markets, not mobile. Within mobile, only Apple seems to exist.

@wrathofbanja: Aaaaand generally a new iPhone is pretty big when it comes to the evolution and expansion of phone games. Alienware PC's don't have any of that, and it's not something that interests Patrick.

The iPhone 6 is relevant to Patrick, and it's something he personally is excited about. Giantbomb is as I understand it over the 6+ years I've been coming here, a place for the guys to basically express whatever it is they are passionate about. Or should we take down all of the Movie podcasts, Alt F1, Power bombcast, Drews travel log to Korea, the Iceland trip etc. Seriously, sometimes you people argue about the most asinine shit imaginable.

The difference is that those things you mentioned have to do with the staff and they are entertaining. This is literally, as someone said above me, a regurgitation of a press release.
