    The new Tomb Raider game has been getting great reviews so far. I'm really looking forward to that game next Tuesday, it's been on my "must have" list since it debuted at E3 back in 2011. Also picking up MLB The Show 13 that same day (it's the only sports game I'll buy/play outside of the occasional Tiger Woods spurt). I'm done with football games until some other company besides EA gets rights to the NFL license. Then Bioshock Infinite just a couple weeks later. Great month for gaming coming up.

    MGS 3 is still the best of the bunch I think (love the boss battles in that one).

    I just get the feeling that this is another one of those "great" games that by the time I am half way through I am only playing it to finish it, not because I am having a fun time playing it. And then once I finish it, that is that, no sense of satisfaction/accomplishment. I know that sounds horribly jaded and snobby and high brow, I admit it, but that is honestly how I feel with the vast majority of the hits out there over the last so many years. Maybe I should just start going back to renting video games as apposed to buying them?

    I'm looking forward to the new SimCity next week. I played the beta and it seems like a true return to form.

    I think that's because some of these AAA games just don't offer the replay value....Uncharted is great (and I love all three), but once you finish them, there's not much incentive to go back and play again (for you've seen all the great level/set pieces, know the story and plot twists). So you're sorta paying 50-60 bucks to play the game for 10 hours and that's that. But if you enjoy the story and gameplay, then all is fine I guess...I can't see myself not enjoying either of those on the new Tomb Raider, plus the new TR is supposed to be a little different than the Uncharted games, in that after you beat it, the entire island/world opens up for you to explore (rather than just being chapters/levels) and go digging around for hidden tombs, so that should be fun as well.

    It kind of ticks me off that the Mac version won't be released at the same time as the PC version... this just means I'll have to get it for my less powerful Dell laptop and suffer the consequences.

    All of my consoles and games have been collecting dust lately, even though I have plenty of titles that I'd like to play. I've become reluctant to buy any new games, in fact, because I hardly play my money's worth whenever I add to my shelf. It is like a kind of depression... That being said, I can't wait for The Last of Us. That game is going to break the spell.

    Yes, Last of Us, Remember Me and Watch_Dogs (for the PS4) this winter will all be glorious.

    Though I'm hesitant to buy any PS3 games at the moment, as the "we'll see what we can come up with" approach Sony is taking with backwards compatibility is casting a shadow over things for me.

    Again with the backward compability thing? PS4 won't have it. End of story. They'll eventually offer PS3 games to download and stream onto the system but that's probably another 2 years out at the least. If you have a PS3 currently, I can't see why you would be hesitant about purchasing games. You have a system that will play them, so you buy them. If you don't, you're gonna miss out some great games...Tomb Raider, Bioshock, Last of Us, and the best one of them all, Beyond: Two Souls.

    Yeah, if there's a game you like, buy it. The game won't be on the next system, so what's the point of skipping it? It's not like you have to throw your PS3 out when you buy the PS4, and you can just switch your HDMI cable between the systems OR keep them both plugged in if your TV/Receiver supports it. They're not there giant, heavy things like desktop PCs. Also, we're talking about a piece of hardware that won't even be available for like 10 months. You're likely to be totally done playing these games by then anyway.

    Buy a new game this year that'll be useless next week. Good job, Sony.

    Yes, because the announcement of a new system means the current systems and games all become "useless" right away (and let's ignore the fact that the PS2 - a system released in fucking 2000 - finally stopped production THIS year).

    Yeah you get the incredibly inferior MLB 2K13. Ha, The Show runs circles around that franchise. It's not even funny.

    The discussion of making the PS3 games "upgraded" to play/stream on the PS4 is my major reason for hesitation, and the fact that nothing has been finalized for sure. If six months after The Last of Us comes out for the PS3 there's an annoucement that a "Deluxe HD Upgrade" version of it will be a PS4 title, I'd rather wait and play the real deal.

    So I'm going to want to put my $$$ towards PS4 titles instead, and if that means I play the waiting game then so be it.

    So I'll get to disconnect one of the 20 systems I have hooked up and toss everything out. Great.

    1. Didn't that photo circulate the internet for a while, not originating from Marooko?
    2. Isn't Marooko a female?
    3. Regardless of the answer of 1 and 2, Riggins you act like a fool.

    EDIT: Just realized #2 is irrelevant, but oh well, I guess I'm just curious if riggins likes picking fights with nerdy girls online.

    My PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2 and PS1 games. I got one of the bulky ones from the first generation, and it's held out very fine, although it has been known to shut itself off on the rare occasion (I think it was more-so the fault of Bethesda games, though). Anyway, there were a few times when I dusted off some RPG game, like Suikoden III or Final Fantasy XII, but I mostly didn't play old games on the system.

    I have been itching, recently, to get the .hack// collection for PS2 and play them, but that's more wishful thinking than anything... Plus, they seem very expensive, whenever I check on eBay.

    So, while it would've been cool for PS4 to be effortlessly backwards compatible, as my PS3, I guess it's not too big a deal for me. Perhaps they will release an enhanced version of The Last of Us, but I'm sure the PS3 version will more than satisfy me, and I don't know when the hell I'll ever get a PS4. I definitely want one, eventually, having always had and enjoyed the other systems, but I don't imagine that I'll be in at the beginning.

    EDIT: I should note that after I bought my PS3, I sold my PS2 to my cousin, because of the backward compatibility thing.
