    For the record, I still can't play GTAO. They say they'll push the second patch tomorrow, here's to hoping that's the magic sauce.

    I went back and played a bunch of Killzone:Mercenary on the Vita to kill the time while trying to log in... that game is the balls. Terrific online, even if it's only 8 player matches, and the graphics/sound/design is all current-gen level. Really happy how that came out.

    Agreed, Killzone on Vita is fantastic. So much better than anticipated.

    I just learned today I know the guy that plays the character Trevor in GTAV. His a bit of a douche IRL so maybe it suits him.

    Any thoughts on the GTA V online? I messed around with it for an hour last night. I thought it was fun but I can see how some might find it frustrating too. Especially when you are on a mission with some strangers and everyone keeps hopping out of the car and wandering around. I was laughing when one guy finally said fuck it and ran over the other guy who didn't get back in the car.

    In the story mode i'm still pretty early into it. I'm learning how to fly the airplane now errr I should say I'm struggling with sticking the landing of the plane.

    I'm really enjoying the online game. It's really fun to mess with people. I saw three guys robbing a liquor store so i pulled up and killed them and took the money. They all got pissed at me but that's part of the game.

    Nice. In the single player I shut the game off mid mission once and they re-started me back on top of a mountain. I drove around the mountain forever (just for fun) and then overheard some folks talking. I came up on them and they were burrying a body. I killed them all, took the money and then drove the mob princess home. A few minutes later she called my cell phone and wired me a several thousands dollars for my help.

    Yeah I was pretty much having a blast in GTA Online this weekend. Played around some with the missions and varying activities...

    But also spent a lot of time chasing down other players and blowing up the cars they were driving.

    I couldn't care less what IGN and Kotaku write about it.....most writers/reviewers have it out for David Cage. They'll sit there and tell you there's not enough action (because all games must have action and guns amirite?) and blah blah blah, who cares? I just got the game from UPS, and now it's sitting here staring at me for the rest of the work day. Can't wait to get home and play this all night. Definitely my most anticipated game of the last 3-4 years. If any game is gonna top Bioshock for GOTY imo, it's gonna be this.

    Just wanted to say i finally beat Last of Us and wow. Never have I played a game with so much challenge, suspense, and raw emotion that it had. I loved how for the most part ammo was very scarce, there were legitimate puzzles and tough tasks to solve, and there were a variety of ways to complete each scenario. Every thing felt so necessary. Never did I think naughty dog would trump the uncharted series but fuck they did. Masterpiece.

    Quick review of Beyond: Two Souls

    Cons:
    Story does have some plot holes/unanswered questions which really bug me
    Narrative is told in a very strange way/order...I think it needed some fine tuning imo
    Decisions you make don't seem to really matter/be criticial until the very end, which is a let down

    Pros:
    Great control scheme (much improved over Heavy Rain)
    Switching/playing as Aiden is great fun and very creatively done
    Graphics/settings/art direction is fucking amazing
    Probably the strongest emotional connection you create with characters in a game yet...Ive never cared for Jodie like I've cared for any other gaming character ever
    Even with flaws, the story is still very interesting, heartbreaking, sad, excitng, etc

    Overall:
    A 9/10 (though I say this BARELY reaches the "9" on my scale, but a 9 nonetheless).

    This was the most hyped game for me of the last 3 years probably (maybe more)....expectations were SUPER high, and in the end I felt it delivered almost entirely. People, please put down GTA V, and the rest of those fucking Maddens/Fifas/FPS and play this game at least once. It's like nothing you've ever played before.

    Will it win my GOTY? Hard to say...this year has been great (best ever maybe?). It's definitely a race right now between Bioshock Infinite, Beyond, Last of Us, Tomb Raider, and Puppeteer. But there are some games left....Tearaway, Arkham Origins, Knack, AC4, Watch_Dogs.

    So I take it that if you liked Heavy Rain, you'll like Beyond: Two Souls and if you didn't then don't bother.

    I'm anxiously waiting until the 15th to finally try out The Wolf Among Us.

    Well if you didn't like Heavy Rain because you hate QTE gameplay, then yeah I guess you won't like Beyond either. But the controls are much improved and honestly there is much less QTE in this game. Most everything revolves around the right joystick . You push it in certain directions to jump, duck, fight, punch etc (when in those types of situations)....and you push it towards little white orbs to initiate an action (like opening a door, picking something up, etc). But the extra additon of controlling Aiden is what really separates the controls of this game from Heavy Rain. But my mindset is also that not every game needs to be push forward to run, press X/A to jump, B to shoot/whatever. I quite enjoy what Quantic Dream has come up with.

    Plus this game also allows you to see an almost naked Ellen Page, and stars fucking Willem Dafoe. How awesome is that?

    Maybe the most fascinating part is watching the emotional triggers they employ to push you to spend money

    I had Watch Dogs, Knack, and AC4 as my 3 PS4 games for launch...guess this means I can switch WD with Killzone Shadowfall.

    Official, switched over to pre-ordering Killzone: Shadowfall now. Add that with Knack, and AC4, along with the actual system and the extra controller....it's gonna be an expensive November, but thank God I've been saving up since E3 for this. As much as I was looking forward to Watch Dogs (it impresses me a whole lot more than GTA V ever has/does), I'm okay with it being delayed to be "polished up" (though who knows if that's really the case). I'm not a big fan of FPS's over the last 5-6 years (in fact I sold my sealed copy of Killzone 3 that came with my PS3), but Shadowfall does impress me, mainly because it seems to be only one that takes it's single player campaign seriously. That, and the visuals are fucking gorgeous.

    Delaying a game 6 months, 1 month before it was supposed to come out seems fishy to me. I think Ubisoft doesn't want two of their franchises competing in the same month so they're going with the proven one and releasing AC4 for the holiday season over Watch Dogs which is a new IP.

    Well consider me sickenly filled with massive amounts of gut wrenching regret. Checked my PSN inbox yesterday and it turns out I was invited to Dark Souls 2 Beta Test. But of course all the slots were taken up when I tried to complete the registration last night. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUCK. Seriously. Shit man.

    You didn't miss much. It was just a stress test for their servers. It only lasted 2 hours last Saturday. They're having a much bigger beta on October 22nd so you might be able to try again.

    Thank you and thank you! I didn't realize it was only small couple hour play time windows. Still, I'm super bummed because I would have LOVED to play it regardless. Looks like I may take work off on the 22nd...

    I'm going to ask a stupid question. So I'm going to buy a PS4 in November. But the PS4 will not be able to play PS3 games right? So if I want to get GTA or Last of Us, will there be downloads for the PS4 or will there be PS4 hard copy versions? I want to move my PS3 in the bedroom so I'm holding off on buying any of the new PS3 games since they wont work on the PS4. But will those games even be available for the PS4? This shit gets complicated for the casual users.

    As of now, there is no confirmation either way for either of those games.
