    @humanityI'd hardly consider eliminating GameStop or physical media for games leaving these large companies "unchecked". If anything, I would argue they are a contributing factor that drives prices h...

    This looks pretty great. Excited to see what the mayhem of the multiplayer experience will be like. Very curious to see how meaningful the destruction will be relevant to the gameplay as opposed to ju...

  • ei8htbit posted a message on the post E3 2015: Persona 5 Can't Get Here Soon Enough.

    I'll remain optimistic about this one, big fan of the art alone even if I have to put up with dumb story (in a fun way) and cock monsters or whatever to experience it- but I really don't think this w...

    OPINION: E3 2015 and why Microsoft “Won” (so far)

    @ripelivejam: Dude, I hear what you're saying - just know that I'm not saying it's cool to dump on everything. My point is that I'm questioning the culture of embracing hype explicitly for the sake of...

  • ei8htbit posted a message in the forum topic The Official SONY Thread. on the E3 2015 board

    So to sum up, Sony is releasing basically only one new IP. Confirmed an 8 year old title that won't see release until next year. A remake. A few sequels, one of which they aren't even funding. And the...
