Nice!

I'm picking it up to PVP during the rush of new players. If you need help with a boss or something, I may be able to put down a summon sign.

I would advise going into it knowing that it's slightly less refined than Dark Souls is though. I go back and forth over which I enjoyed more, but I wonder what the perspective of someone who played it after Dark Souls would be. The art design is fantastic, but it's a bit of an ugly game technically, especially compared to Dark Souls. You won't ever get the cheap knockoff feeling you do with Dark Souls II though. Especially with the bosses. Demon's Souls arguably had better bosses, even.

Oh, and gameplay leaks up in this ************.

http://a.pomf.se/yddnwi.webm

Same stuff from the old WebM's....which means it old footage. Likely meant for the false start TGS reveal last year. It's tough to tell, but the graphics don't quite look as good as the brief bit we saw at E3. They might still be adapting to some sort of upgrade they were able to do.

Still, it looks phenomenal. Love that we see the protag using different sorts of weapons, as I was a little concerned about the constraints of the setting. We see big ******* axes though, so I'm good. A From Software Action RPG without a greatsword(specifically the Claymore) just isn't right. Blocking, dual wielding, and two handing are also still things, which is nice.

Love the art direction and the music. Wish they had shown this at E3, even if my theory about upgraded graphics is true.

Thanks man. I am a bit of an ego guy when I play this game, so I have a strict no summoning policy (I actually have never summoned in DS1 or 2), especially when it comes to bosses. I actually was surprised to hear how many people summon help for bosses in these games, especially on the DS board when DS2 came out. I personally love doing it all myself, the only boss I didn't beat in DS2 was darklurker and that was due to running out of effigies (I used a ton sun broing for the sun sword). With that said, i am quite excited to play another souls game before the new one comes out.

Also I am so excited for Bloodborne. You best not disappear again when it comes out EE, I need someone hardcore to talk about it with besides my roommate.

The new Xbox One commercial has some unexpected consequences.
The ad features "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul using the Xbox One's voice controls to play a game, powering on the Xbox with a "Xbox on" command.

The problem is, the Xbox One sitting in people's living rooms actively listens for the very voice commands in the commercial. The result? The commercial is booting up people's Xbox One without their permission.

Playing Hardline beta. It's kinda fun, but there's no way it'd hold my interest. If it was just another mode for BF4, it'd be great.

So my girlfriend's brother got into the Destiny Alpha. We were at her parents house for a good bit today and I ended up playing a ton.

...It's a very, very weird game. I wrote the bones of another post about it already before I gave up trying to describe it. Most of the labels you've heard about it are fairly accurate...but putting it in those terms is pretty reductive. "Borderlands mixed with Halo" isn't wrong, but it does't quite cover it all.

It's one of those things you kind of have to play to understand. That's not to say it all works. Some of the things they're doing together shouldn't work, but don't totally fall on their faces either. I can definitely see why Bungie is having a hard time communicating just what the game is and what makes it fun. As I said, I'm not sure it's something that's going to completely live up to the hype...but it's certainly better than they've been able to sell. Moved it up from "interested, but expecting it to fail" back to just interested.

I didn't play enough of the mutliplayer to get a 100% solid read on it, but I think there's some pretty fundamental balance things they're going to have to work out. I'm not sure if this is the way it actually works, but it feels like you have a massive advantage depending on the gear you're using. They're doing things to balance out the level differences and some of the gear stuff for sure, but some players are just going to flat out have better weapons and armor.

PVE is is better, but you can really tell this is an odd slice of the game they've given. There's barely any exposition or setup, which frames the entire thing poorly. NPC's don't really have a ton to stay at this stage and the hub world feels a little lifeless. Hearing Tyrion Lannister deliver corny lines about space wizards from the moon is pretty ******* great though.

All and all, it's something I really respect. It might not work out, but it would have been very easy for Bungie to phone it in and try to launch a more basic FPS game. This is something different, for better or worse.

Hah, I'll be around. I've been more active than usual lately, but I don't think I'll ever truly be rid of this place lol. Too many people I still enjoy talking with.

Also, having spent my first real hands on time with a next-gen console today, I have to say that I'm really unimpressed. Not trying to ruffle any feathers, but I built my brother a PC a few months back for about $550(could easily shave off $100). Games look a ton better on it and run at a higher framerate. The 360 and the PS3 were major leaps forward and blew equivalently/closely priced PC's out of the water when they were launched. The Xbox One and the PS4 are essentially glorified laptops.

It's ****** all around for everyone, both for consoles and PC.

Lots of postive talk from the Destiny Alpha, not so much from the Battlefield Hardline beta.

I bought Outlast. Thought it'd be a fun game to play after midnight with the lights off, but its ******* with me. Maybe I'm just being a *****.

Street Fighter 4 Arcade and Charlie Murder are both free on Games With Gold. Honestly I'm enjoying Charlie Murder more.

I mean, you saw everything from Hardline during the E3 presentation. It's worth playing the beta for free because it is kinda fun, but there's no lasting appeal.

I have found the Hardline beta to be a lot of fun. Plays like GTA Online on crack. They need show a lot more content to charge full price. Its basically a mod.

Thinking I might have to cave and get Madden this year. Haven't bought a football game in 3 years and haven't bought a Madden game in 4 or 5. I just need a football game and this one looks so pretty, I think I can deal with it being okay-good if it means I get a current football game

Yeah, it really is just a mod for BF4. I can't believe they're going to charge full price for it... They should have just made it an expansion for BF4. It'd sell a lot better that way.

Nothing hard attached to that.

I actually really doubt Microsoft would be interested in putting up a competitive offer. They certainly have the cash, but Capcom just isn't a very good fit for them. Capcom's most valuable franchise right now is Monster Hunter, which is a strictly Japanese phenomenon. Not only that, it's mostly a portable thing. Those are two areas Microsoft doesn't have any sort of presence in. I don't think they have the desire to change that on either front.

Sony is out entirely. Playstation continues to make money, but the rest of the company is in a hole that gets deeper every day. Even if they could muster up the cash, it would be a hard sell to shareholders who are less than pleased with them right now.

Other Japaneses publishers are out too. Capcom is probably in better shape right now than a lot of them are, even. Hard times for everyone over there.

Nintendo is the only real possibility I see. They're still sitting on all the money they made with the Wii. They're bleeding it slowly with the Wii U, but there's enough there to make a big acquisition if they want to. They've even mentioned recently that they're open to spending money if they want to. They're in need of content, and most of Capcom's franchises have deep ties to Nintendo in one way or another.

...I still don't think they do it. It's just not their style.

Meh DMC, Street fighter, Megaman (come on capcom stop ******* around and give us a 16 bit megaman X sequel.) are some serious titles to have as exclusives for any system.

I don't see Microsoft pulling the trigger. Would be cool though.

Out of those three, Street Fighter is the only thing there that really makes a ton of money these days. Devil May Cry did extremely poorly it's last time out and Capcom hasn't been able to make money with Mega Man in over a decade.

...not that those franchises don't have their value. They just won't be the reason anyone buys Capcom. Monster Hunter, Street Fighter, and Resident Evil(which still makes sells, but won't for very much longer if there aren't major changes) are the main financial draws.

Monster Hunter is probably the biggest one there. The latest version sold 4.1 million copies in Japan alone inside of a year. It's global appeal has proven to be pretty limited, but it pretty much prints money in Japan.

I really don't think anything is imminent. I'm sure Microsoft and others would like to pick at the bones THQ style if Capcom were to totally go out, but that's not going to happen overnight.
