Is anyone going to get the Stick of Truth game that just came out? Read some pretty positive reviews of it so far, and the stuff I've seen on twitch.tv has been fun. I'll probably get it, but I'm not sure I'll be getting it at the $60 price point.

I just realized that Dark Souls 2 is coming out in a few days, which means this purchase gets pushed back even further. The price will definitely drop before then.

Excellent stuff on the latest Humble Bundle! Antichamber, The Swapper, and Guacamelee! are all wonderful games. Pay more than the average of $3.85 to get those, plus 3 other games. https://www.humblebundle.com/

Would anyone like a free Steam key for The Swapper or Antichamber?

I was quite into Dead Rising 3 until about this moment when things got weird and actually kind of game-breaking. A frustrating boss-fight that made no sense and was almost impossible to boot.

Granted, combining a sledgehammer and a buzz saw in less than ten seconds and having it last through hundreds of zombies is a stretch. But this was a bit of ridiculous cheese.

Apparently the quick-time events are done from the Kinect and not the controller. I had to shake my controller to kick off some zombies, but I was too far below the camera's view so it didn't know I was shaking the controller like someone suffering a seizure..

Apart from these frustrations there's still fun to be had..

What's coming from the big leagues.

From what's confirmed  so far, I'm probably most looking forward to:

Thief
Titanfall
Destiny

That's about it.

So this just happened in GTA V.

Full story. I was coming out of the garment factory minding my own business, when the white car on the right and a cop car chasing it come up the road. The cops shoot the driver and the passenger, who both fall out of the car. One of the cops drives off, leaving the other to watch the scene, but he loses interest pretty quickly and leaves, too.

Other cars start getting annoyed by the white car blocking the street, so they drive into it, some of them thus damaging their own cars (the two SUVs in the middle of the street) and abandoning them. Soon, an ambulance drives up. Two paramedics get out and declare the two people dead. By this time, other cars have decided the new traffic lane is directly over the dead bodies, so they just drive over them. Then, the guy in red picks a fight with the paramedics, FOR NO APPARENT REASON. They punch him out and leave. Then this blue car comes up, stops in the middle of the accident scene, and the people just get out and run away.

Keep in mind that I had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS. I was just a bystander taking pictures.

So I am hosting SmartWatch, a podcasted dedicated to The Division. We recorded our first episode last week prior to E3 which I posted here.

We have two episodes so far. SmartRant is our episode about everything not The Division at E3 which is a little NSFW due to some of my co-hosts swearing.

I would appreciate it if you'd give it a listen and give some constructive criticism.

Thanks!

Bored? Like creative, weird stuff? Here's 100 different games to play, free of charge (and sanctioned by the creators of said games - read: not illegal to download). 

"A torrent containing one hundred small, weird, free (mostly ignored) videogames that you probably haven’t played made by well over one hundred passionate game makers. Some were made for game jams, others were made just because, some are made by celebrated game makers, many are made by folks that you won’t know."

This sounds pretty cool. Now if only our apartment complex didn't block all torrents and torrent sites. :(

Have some Steam keys for The Swapper, FEZ, and Dust: An Elysian Tail. Anyone want 'em?

Watching some E3 footage of this has kinda cooled my jets on this a bit. The monster angle is kind of a typical gimmick and it sounds like this game might be linear enough to where you don't get much difference on replay.

But that's based on the footage. :P

I hear Watch Dogs is only a couple of months away now.  Besides me, is there anyone else excited about this game?

Lots of goodness headed our way...
Which games in the year ahead are most likely to move the art and craft of gaming forward? And how will they innovate? We decided to take a selection of promising games, and ask the developers...

What is this business. I do love most things NimbleBit has done, though...

A lovely PS4 feature

Since I left my PS4 in standby mode last night, I'm able to log in to the Sony Store from work, "purchase" the free-with-PSPlus Don't Starve, and have it downloaded and waiting for me to play when I get home.

I'm sure other consoles can do this too, but I'm not sure it's as seamless. With my Xbox 360, I could add things to my download queue from the web, but I had to power up my Xbox in person and then wait for the download.

That's a pretty nice feature. Haven't really tried something like that with the XBOX ONE yet since there aren't a whole lot of games.

AKA, all the games you should really be excited about for 2014.
The year that was 2013 is behind us. It's gone. Kaputt. What a good year it was for indie games, too. It's hard to imagine how it could get any better, isn't

These all look pretty awesome, with the exception to the pixel'y ones. Getting kind of tired of the whole pixel-art game.

So far I am having an amazing time with my #XboxOne . Great interface, controller is actually better than the 360 controller, and the Kinect 2.0 integration is exactly what I wanted. It's not perfect, but I can only see it getting better.

The lack of launch games is annoying, but I did download the Killer Instinct trial and was instantly hooked. I just wish it had a story mode, but at $40 for the Ultra Edition that is a pretty good deal.

I will be asking for AC4 for christmas, so that should fill the void until the Destiny beta launches.

Destiny is on both current gen and next gen. Bungie's partnership with Activision has them promoting the game to the Sony audience more than the Microsoft crowd.
