I need to play 3 still. That's the best one yet right with the revolution and shit? I can't believe the PS4 is the first to be announced. PS3 took like what, 13 years to come out? PS4 like 6

You leveled up! Share on twitter?

I am going to be pissed if a game asks me to connect to Facebook or something. First goal of PS4 life, disable the share button. I will never support a Microsoft console again. I spent just as much time having fun with the 360 as I did having them fucking fall apart

Good luck with that: if Microsoft manages a holiday release for the 720 and pushes some decent first party titles, Sony will be out of business in two years.

Halo and Gears of War are the only exclusives I'd want to play

Sony's sheet is so much better its not even close, not even mentioning the inevitable continued releases of classic PS2 bundles. Free online is so much better than 12 year olds calling everyone a gay ******. You know I traded my 360 bundle on kijiji for a PS3? The guy was probably 12. Probably had sex with everyones mom on Halo by now

Am I the only one who thinks the share button sounds like an awesome idea?

But yeah. Big giant meh from me for AC4. 3 was ok but could've and should've been way better. And I find it way too hard to get excited about a sequel to a game that came out just over 4 months ago.

I've never been a fan of the series much anyway. The fact that Bioshock Infinite, Remember Me, The Last of Us and most importantly Pokemon X and Y all come out before it, makes it hard to get hyped about it.

I dunno, I think the games shown at the conference were pretty damn solid. Killzone is a surprisingly good series and that game looked freakin' gorgeous, Knack looks like it has potential to be really good, the unnamed Capcom title piqued my interest, Bungie's Destiny looks absolutely glorious and I was hella impressed with what they showed of Watchdogs.

Also, I'm really enthusiastic about the way it looked like they were focusing less on 'LOOK HOW POWERFUL THIS SHIT IS' and actually showing how developers could use it.

In terms of the share button, the idea of a friend dropping in to watch your game and sending you a spare health potion if you're in trouble is kinda awesome to me. I've still to see whether or not developers will utilise it well but it has potential to be a great feature. I wouldn't associate it with Facebook games, that's kinda snap assumption to make when putting together a social and gaming experience. Sony actually want to reign in people who aren't middle aged with nothing better to do.

A big topic was the possibility of the PS4 not running used games. Seems like that won't be happening. However we probably should not expect any kind of backward compatibility which is kinda shit. Guess I'll keep the PS3 as a blu-ray player. I wouldn't be surprised if they released a 3 in 1 Uncharted pack for PS4 and shit like that

Yeah it was a big thing. Microsoft was thinking about it too. It caused such an uproar that I think it was cast aside. Don't be surprised if they start throwing in day one DLC that will only be available with brand new games though. Already pretty much every EA title needs to be bought new if you want to play it online. Unfortunate, they'll do anything to milk an extra $15 from you

shit, games are expensive to begin with. (maybe not relative to the amount of work that goes into them) but for the average person that wouldn't normally be able to buy those games, they are kind of screwing themselves over. i dont think its like they are losing loads of potential consumers from used games- those people bought used because they couldn't buy new alot of the time i would think

If I buy one new game a year I'd be surprised with myself. I think the last new game I bought was Alone in the Dark. It was $5 and it came with a few bonus things and it was actually a sweet game. Probably happened two years ago

I honestly don't see much to be angry about with the share button other than 'HURR IT'LL BECOME LIEK FACEBOOK GAMZ' which it obviously won't. Even if it's not that big a deal, it looks like it's gonna be a feature that you can easily just ignore. They didn't even make much of a huge deal about it in the conference.

But yeah, it isn't gonna have backwards compatibility, which is kinda rubbish, but apparently they are gonna be putting a hell of a lot of old games on the digital library.

It'd just be annoying if you have to connect your social media accounts before you can play online, which is something I can totally see happening. Just another Internet step that doesn't add any value in my opinion. I can see digital games happening. They have a pretty small collection of PS2 games for sale, but I can easily see that triple for PS3 games on the PS4 store

I don't see it making social media accounts an obligatory thing. It might become an option, but I doubt it'll be a requirement (for one thing, that'd require you to actually have a Facebook/Twitter account to play the console, which would be retarded). The whole shift towards an online focus is something I don't have an issue with so long as it doesn't come to always online single player games.

I played the first Assassin's Creed. I actually got it right when it came out, was pretty stoked at the idea. It was a lot of fun, but it did get predictable and repetitive about 3/4 of the way through. Played some ACII, but man did that shit suck. They took out all of the stealth assassinations/game play in lieu of setpiece story moments and scripted fights. Then they decided to make an installment every fucking year. I'm done with this franchise, and have been done since the second game. Count me out.

There is a share button on the controller. You better believe there is going to be pressure and notifications for you to set things up constantly, of that I'm sure. Terrible idea. Share = social media. Share on a controller, I'd take the select button any day

Is there any reason to subscribe to playstation +? They give you free games but you lose the right to play them if your subscription expires. Online is free anyway. I can't see myself buying more than like...one game digitally. I like physical games for consoles, its collateral. For steam its so fucking cheap I don't mind

What is this playstation home business?

You create a model of yourself, you create your own house and then you interact with other people's models and play stupid games. It's like Sony's version of a social media network.

Really? I like the second waaaaaay better than the first. The stealth elements are still very much there, hell they've even been improved and it's one of like 2 AC games that actually has a really good story, I think. The first feels like a tech demo after 2.

Read this, you grumpy grumpy gamers, you. See if you can't find at least one thing that sounds cool.

I played Playstation home today.

I spent some time making my guy mildly resemble me with a grey sweater and jeans. Pretty much no free options with clothing or ways to decorate my apartment but that was fine. So naturally I didn't give a shit where the chairs were in my place so I wanted to go somewhere else. After much navigating I found out that I could go someplace that gamers in the community have created. So I go to this majestic farm that looks like the farm from the Walking Dead game, chapter two. Suddenly there are tons of other people, and they all look really amazing. Two guys came in on horses dressed as kings and then this guy flies in on a dragon! Then a girl walks by that looks like Lara Croft. Tons of girls btw, all hot as shit. Probably all dudes. But still, are they paying for these clothes and godamn animals? How do you make a farm? Anyway there is a nice dock. So I go and sit on it. Then what do you know a guy sits next to me. I say hey and he replies "Sup?" and leaves. So I walk around and see a muscular guy and a girl wearing very little standing very close to each other. Only I couldn't eavesdrop this conversation. So I realize there is nothing to do other than to approach things and read them. So I bail and go into this ninja world. There are shoe ads everywhere? And they are advertising Playstation Home? Alright...So apparently there is a game here so I find this sort of target practice game and they are asking me to buy shit every two seconds. Anyway I spend the whole time sprinting over the place and jumping off the balcony.

Fuck it

I love AC, but dragging its feet? eh, maybe so - I hope they correct what they wronged in 3 by trying to feign the concept of an open world while giving you the carrot-on-a-stick fast travel to get where you want to go for the story immediately. got the game over a year ago and I still haven't messed with the side missions after completing the main missions.

I liked Connor and all, but I loved Ezio, especially when Revelations came around. There was a very grim tone throughout the entire game, you know? Desmond becoming comatose, Ezio coming to grips with his age, Altair's many trials and tribulations, shit - even the Subject 16 DLC had a particularly dark immersion to it

Spoiler:
 

Everything seemed like it was on a march towards the end of time, and happy endings nowhere in sight made it a very depressing yet empowering game to play. It demands so much more psychologically than the vengeance portrayed in the first two of the Ezio trilogy, and I can't favor them because they're on rails with the same, tired story: revenge.

Spoiler:
 

that's why I didn't really feel Connor out too much, his vengeance seemed random and misplaced sometimes, some of his kills absolutely unnecessary and his war-like tendencies made him a killer first and a silent assassin second. I really hope 4 brings something great to the table otherwise there's going to be some shots fired

the whole travelling by ship thing is returning, which is definitely can be a good thing, but only if they can somehow do it like Skies of Arcadia where the game world is interconnected and completely reachable by your preferred method of transportation. I think it'll be an all right game, ultimately - nothing will captivate me as much as AC:R did, so I'm trying not to hype it up too much
