  1. Re: THE GAMING HARDWARE THREAD: PS4 - WII U - XBone - PS3 - 360 - WII

    The Witcher is sitting on my Xbox, taunting me... But I know that starting now would be silly, since I'll barely be able to get in to it before my wife and I head out on a three week vacation.
  2. Re: THE GAMING HARDWARE THREAD: PS4 - WII U - XBone - PS3 - 360 - WII

    I just don't want to get my hopes up until I see something official. But given how Fallout 3 is easily my favorite game of all time, I desperately want it to happen!
  3. Re: THE GAMING HARDWARE THREAD: PS4 - WII U - XBone - PS3 - 360 - WII

    Has there been any confirmation that this is actually happening yet? Or are we still just assuming Fallout 4 is going to be announced?

    For anyone who has been to a show at Hollywood Forever:
    They say free parking on their website, but is that generally a clusterfuck or easy enough to take advantage of?

    Top 5, in no particular order:
    St Vincent
    Bad Religion
    Gorgon City

    That would be awesome and slightly infuriating, since my group has decided that this year is our last and we are moving on to "greener" pastures for our yearly big festival trip for 2016.
