When I saw that you could have one or the other or even both eyes closed on your character... I decided on a pretty dumb idea.

My character, Lord Julio, and my pawn, Big Sister are identical in appearance... save for the eyes. And of course, the classes.

Why Big Sister? Because I wanted something funny... while names like "Taco Truck" and "Good Burrito" are pretty funny, when I thought of Big Sister I couldn't stop giggling.

In retrospect, I should have called my main character Little Sister.

Let's imagine it was $300 without controller or those games, people seem to ignore the fact that for a number of big games you still need a full-on top-of-the-line gaming computer. It was always going to be a hard-core gaming toy for the first few years of its existence as PC hardware continued to improve.

I'm one of those people who's livelihood, education and entertainment are all tied into my personal home computer. So after my previous computer finally turned 4 years old I went relatively big with a new PC outfitted with a healthy i7 + 980Ti + 16GB combination with the launch of Win10 back in August all with the intention of having a computer that'd get me on the ground floor of the consumer VR world.

To counter this I noodle around with a cheap but functional $200 Chromebook when I need something portable - not a $1400 MacBook. I'm not made of money, I need to pick my battles, and I do my battling on my desktop.

I'm just saying. After knowing for months and months and months that you'd need a powerful gaming PC to run this I'm flabbergasted that if anyone was on top of this stuff and had invested in the hardware before the price announcement that they'd take their ball (of $600 in cash) and go home without taking the dip.

If someone doesn't have the PC power in the first place they waste their breath complaining about the price because they weren't going to be able to run it properly in the first place. I'm also willing to bet the Vive will be at least $450 and won't be your price-saviour and the PS VR will be at least $300 with a far less entertaining catalog.

But then again, even if the VR stuff doesn't change the world, I'm a person who owns a TrackIR and am perfectly fine with my racing and flight simulators. (Dirt Rally, Project Cars, DCS A-10, Elite Dangerous...)

Well, I guess everyone will just have to come to my house and see where the Oculus Rift lives.

I really hope that ghosts get retroactively uploaded. To the few friends I may have playing this game I certainly want them to be flabberghasted by my ghost just smoking them on the time trials... because secretly I drove around the track 12 times to get that time. But I want them to feel the pressure!

Because I can wait. I'm up to my eyeballs in video games, and considering I'm the type of person who already throws aside TV and movies in claims that I don't have enough time because all of my freetime is spent watching either Giantbomb Quicklooks, Youtube videos, playing games on my PC (modern gaming), Mac (Haswell), 360 PS3, Vita, 3DS or Android phone.

Since getting a full time job I've had the money to buy both without feeling too burned in my wallet over it, but I realized that there were no games that I really cared about that I couldn't get on PC with my ridiculous Jeff-esqe 2560x1440 monitor.

Battlefield 4? On PC where it belongs.

Watch_Dogs? PC and I'll wait for the reviews.

AC Black Flag? PC if I decide that I want some more AC.

Titan Fall? PC, of course!

Destiny? Dunno, looks like Borderlands to me, and I didn't really care for Borderlands.

I will probably come around by summer 2014, though. Gonna want to play NHL 15 and whatever other interesting crap comes out for it... like Forza 5...

Fuck yeah! Among the Sleep, Deadly Premonition and BroForce are the games I look forward the most. I don't really care about Divekick. I highly recommend checking out BroForce they have a demo on their website and it's super good.

Rest in Peace Ryan Davis. I've been listening and watching your work for hours a week for over four years now and I've always found you to be a funny and lovable man whose presence on countless hours of podcasts, live shows, and quicklooks to be an integrated part of my daily entertainment and my mood in general for all those years. You were a joy in so many lives. And considering how many complete strangers mourn your passing I cannot imagine how much you'll be missed by those closest in your life.

My brother in another room in my house has played two cities for like 12 hours since it came out.

I've tried to load the game 50 times and I once got into the tutorial. It lost connection at a point and it kicked me out when I tried to visit the neighboring town in the tutorial, sending me straight to the main menu.

At least I have patience, I ain't even angry. I just find it rather comical how badly botched this all was.
