I wish the endings were better but i picked sacrificed Chloe which seemed like the more thought out ending given out the other one felt very rushed with no closure. There were people in that town that Max and Chloe still cared about, so it seemed weird to blindly sacrifice them. If you went with the romance route i can sort of see it a bit more.

It's a fair point that does not really bother me all that much. My two cents would be if they don't know then don't bring it up to begin with. It does look bad when they sort of call themselves out when someone asks and they don't know. Seems like something to cover before starting the quick look if they will even go there.

i'll most likely pick it up because it seems like it will have the same story pathways as heavy rain which i liked. Also it will feel like you are in a summer slasher flick which i can also get behind.

I think Sony crushed it to be honest. If anyone listed the announcements Sony had planned, it would have been laughed off as fanboy ramblings. The only sizable flaw is that their holiday line up for this year is still very weak but how many E3 presentations have dropped big announcements that were 2 to 3 years down the line that stole the show. So i don't really knock Sony's E3 conference too hard when everyone has showcased big games that are 2 to 3 years out. Bethesda i'm in it for fallout and i'll take another spin with dishonored so they would be next followed close by Microsoft who had a pretty solid conference.

No, not really as they are not as open with different types of games. Even more so now that Dave and Patrick are gone.

I think you are being too hard on sony given that they showed three great wonders in the gaming space.

Microsoft : B

Microsoft had a solid showing and i thought they would take E3 with being so solid and showing new IP to boot. I guess the problem comes down to not really having anything shocking. Nothing really blow me away or made me say wow they went there.

Sony : A

I feel Sony knocked it out of the park this year. The surprises just kept coming and if you named all the megatons many would labeled it a fanboy's ramblings and not believe it to be true. The downsides are sony always runs out of steam in the middle of the show and this year was no different with the disney infinity bundle and unneeded sizzle reels. Also many of the big drops are not pure exclusives for sony and sony still seems light on games dropping this year. But at the end of the day E3 is about the presentation of it all and Sony killed it this year in that regard.

Nintendo: C

Nintendo show is always fun to watch and it continue to be interesting in how they are doing their own thing and not just doing a e3 show. That being said the bigger games were a bit underwhelming like star fox and not having any big surprises also hurt the show.

PQ is for story and wacky characters that also has solid rpg dungeon action . While EO4 is no story or characters but sweet uninterrupted rpg dungeon gameplay . Sure PQ characters get a bit one note but im a story guy and the story along with the wacky bits made me stay interest in PQ . While EO4 was great but i keep losing my drive to finish at times.

@conker: Unfortunately no. They added matchmaking for the weekly heroic strikes, which is nice for sure, but there still isn't any matchmaking for raids or the nightfall strike. I'm glad they added it for the weekly heroic, but not adding it for the other two was just dumb. What's even worse is that their reasons for not doing so are just ridiculous, especially since the vast majority of people want matchmaking. Bungie is essentially telling everybody what they want instead of just listening to what everybody wants.

I honesty think the matchmaking right now is backwards. You don't really need matching for the weekly heroic as they can be soloed fairly easy. Nightfall and raids i can understand having some sort of match making but the heroic just seem unneeded.

AC3 kind of killed the series for me, now i don't care to keep up with them. If one grabs me i'll give it a spin but i was the type who liked the overarching story and now that is gone i don't have much reason to keep following each game. This goes double when they are sticking so close to very samey locations. When they start to visit unique locations it would bring me back in to being excited for one.
