The whole 24 hour sync thing in addition to the potential scenario of having to pay a fee to play a used game has me saying "nope."

But, I got rid of cable tv a few years ago because of the current gen systems' media server and Netflix capabilities. Now, they want me to resubscribe to cable?




Well, there is Dog, I suppose.

$500.

I don't know, man. That's a lot of money. The MS conference was kind of underwhelming. There were only a few games that really caught my attention (KILLER INSTINCT, Quantum Break, Titanfall). I like that they're going to ape the free game gimmick from PlayStation Plus.

But I thought it was weird that they didn't talk about any of the stuff that people are crying about. I know it's supposed to be "rah, rah, look at these shiny things!" but if they're canceling all the private interviews with game press, they need to talk about it somewhere. And I say that as a guy who isn't bothered by the used game "problem" or the daily online check-in.

I pre-ordered. Now I have time to decide to wait or not.

I know it's still a bit of money, but did anyone expect it NOT to be $500 with the Kinect and all? I was expecting a $200 or $300 bundle through your cable company or something, but I always expected $500 unsubsidized.

I may sit this one out depending on what Sony has in store. Especially with the fact I'm dropping like 1300 bucks on a new pc in a few months. New KI, Halo, and DR3 don't justify the ridiculous decisions that M$ is making right now.

I'm also not getting the outrage over the supposed "rape joke" during KI3. I've watched the vid a few times and it never crossed my mind he was talking about raping. I think people need to relax, just a tad.

On one hand I feel as if I'm a horrible human being because I don't pick up on shit like that but on the other it feels as if he's white knighting something that doesn't need it. I dunno.

TL;DR Devin is yelling at a cloud

No idea what the hell is going on but reading that name can't be good.

Yep. And as Billy's saying I kind of expected $500 but I'm still not willing to pay that. Not without a waaaaaaaaay better jerb.

Hilarious Rape Joke At Your E3 Presentation, Microsoft

Gamers, ever wonder why you have a bad reputation? Watch this video.


I don't want to paint the gaming community in broad strokes but sometimes they make it so very fucking difficult. While I know many smart, progressive gamers it's the stupid, regressive and repressive ones who make all the big noise. For every Anita Sarkeesian there are thousands of mewling misogynists who play Flash games where the premise is beating up a woman for pointing out that video games don't treat women very well.
Video games, like many other areas of geek interest, have a big female problem. As women get involved in the subculture there are elements within it who lash out. And even if it's not conscious, there's a boy's club mentality to gaming that ends up making women feel very uncomfortable. On some level it's tempting to pin this all on the lowest common denominator in the fanbase, the same 13 year olds who call me nigger in Call of Duty when I heroically headshot them from across the map. But the reality is that so much of this comes from the top down, starting with the design and implementation of female characters in games and ending up with displays like the tasteless bit of banter at the Killer Instinct demo at the Xbox One keynote at E3 today.
One of the producers of Killer Instinct, a man, got on stage with an Xbox Community Manager, a woman, and proceeded to play Killer Instinct in front of the crowd. He started beating up on her, and then this exchange occured:









"Just let it happen, it'll be over soon."
"Wow, you like this!"
Is that banter scripted? I've seen some who say it is - the guy's mushmouthiness almost makes it plausible - but I think this is just trash talk happening in real time. That this is the trash talk that a man feels comfortable directing at a woman on a stage in front of thousands of people says an awful lot about that man. That people laughed says an awful lot about that crowd.
There's another layer of troubling to this - bringing out a man who worked on the game to beat on a woman (the only woman presenter, I've read, but I did not watch the entire presentation to be sure) feels an awful lot like an attempt to reinforce the 'girls can't play games' elitism that permeates the lower strata of game culture. It seems unlikely that anybody could have held their own against one of the guys who made the game if this was their first time playing, gender be damned. Especially because he has a specialized joystick. Even if the banter wasn't written, the set up was guaranteed to have her lose. If the banter was written this situation is even grosser than it seems.
In some ways this wasn't a big deal. The banter was tasteless, and we don't know how the decision was made as to who would go up against the producer on stage. What makes this a big deal isn't the fact that it happened, but that it's indicative of a larger cancer eating away at the gaming community (and, to be fair, many other geek communities, but it seems most horrible in gaming). This, basically, is what institutionalized misogyny looks like.

I ain't givin' that turd my hit.

The price point for what they are offering just doesn't appeal to me. I use my Kinect precisely never as it is. I wish it weren't built right into the system. The only exclusive I was sort of mopey about is probably going to end up ported at some point anyway so EAT MY DUST, EGGBAWKS JUAN.
