Guy, it took them 6 months to get basic functionality running on the PS4 and Xbox One and then it doesn't even work properly yet. It is safe to assume that however easy you think it is to do that stuff: it's not actually that easy. They have priorities and backwards compatibility isn't one of them. Understandably so.

Arkham Origins. Because of being side tracked. A real shame too, because I think it's the best in the series.

People who are that picky scare me. Everyone has some stuff they don't like or don't want to try, but Dan is just ridiculous about it. The guy is barely living. Being so limited... I can never understand it.

@zevvion: If the Dutch government would accuse the Russian separatists of shooting the plane down they wouldn't even get access to the crash site, its a fucked up situation but true.

When the bodies are recovered and the investigation is done, they could start putting sanctions on Russia and possibly give military aid to Ukraine.

You are Dutch as I am. You know they aren't going to do that. Political correctness goes above them over anything else. They could care less about justice.

@almostswedish I understand your fear, but you can ease up. Nobody is going to fly over that route anytime soon. Nothing will happen to her.

Confirmed at least 173 Dutch people died who were on board the plane as opposed to the previous mentioned 150+.

What is the Dutch government going to do? Going to say they're sorry for the deaths and move on. When Americans want help we back them immediately even though the reasons are shady at best. When a mass murder occurs to our own countrymen we're not doing anything. I am ashamed to be Dutch today. Horrible ass kissing country.

PSN is horrible. I so wish I could get an Xbox One/PS4 hybrid. The PS4 is the better machine and arguably (at least for me) has the slight advantage in the controller, but dear God their online systems are awful. Half the time it won't even let me play games I own because it can't authenticate through PSN that I actually bought it (half the time is an exaggeration though). Xbox online systems, Xbox exclusives, everything else PS4. That would be great.

Uh, ive lived in the USA all my life, i've been to Canada once, but it wasn't a trip or vacation or anything. Just drove through part of it, i think we stopped to use the bathrooms and eat at some Canadian diner. Thats it sadly.

I'd like to travel, but don't really have the opportunities. Also waxed romantic about traveling cross country with a friend of mine for years now. One of those "one of these days we should do this!" sorta thing, been saying we were going to for years now. Maybe someday.

I don't know what this means.

@slag: In one of the multitude of spiderman comics I am sure he is. Not read anything recently though, my comic reading comes and goes, usually along with the rise and fall of my disposable income. Last I heard superior spiderman was still a thing, can't say for certain though.

Dang that's too bad. I was hoping they had undid it by now.

That, Scarlet Spider and the whole One More day thing might the be worst things to happen in comics. All of these things seem to happen to Spiderman. Not sure why Marvel seems to hate Peter Parker.

They totally undid it. They completely rebooted Spider-Man. It is now called 'The Amazing Spider-Man' again and they started with issue #1. Superior Spider-Man also still exists though.

Twitter is unhealthy, and you and the world would be better off if you ignored it.

I think this is more like a fact than an opinion.

Completely depends how and how much you use it. I use Twitter mainly to follow people who tweet scientific studies that help me work evidence based in my field. Extremely convenient. I also follow some accounts that tweet interesting facts about some of my interests. Also useful and insightful. Of course, I also stumble upon the occasional jerk or lunatic, in which case it's a bad time. If you actively seek out the latter, then yeah, we are in agreement. Otherwise, it's an incredibly useful platform.

It's nice to see how some of them have (helped) created a game that someone else placed in their top 5 games of the past generation. All of them have good choices. I haven't fully figured out what mine would be, but off the top of my head, I think something like this:

  1. XCOM: Enemy Within
  2. Dark Souls II
  3. Mass Effect 3
  4. Mirror's Edge
  5. Hearthstone

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Darksiders II
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Gears of War
Burnout Paradise
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
BioShock Infinite
Portal 2
The Last of Us
Crackdown
Prototype
Borderlands 2
Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2
Don't Starve

Dear God, there isn't nearly enough room for any of this. How are these people capable of living with themselves mentioning only 5 games?
