  1. I cannot believe that this game hasn't been ported yet. It's nice that it's a backward-compatible title, but an Xbox One remaster would be even better.
  2. I played a bit of this last night as well. It looked good on the base PS4, but now it just looks like a pre-rendered CG movie now on my 1080p plasma.
  3. It looks like the new Xbox One dashboard is out today. https://twitter.com/majornelson/status/920003128165937152 And here I am with no Xbox One to try it out.
  4. Nice! It's three for me this year: Switch, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X. I really hope that I’ll be set for a while seeing as I’d like to have some money left over for games at a certain point.
  5. You damn well know that there are some crazy speed runners who only play this way. Those people can go to hell.
  6. I ended up joining the Pro Club today. I wasn’t planning on making the purchase when the weekend started, but I saw an opportunity late last night that was too good to pass up. With the impending arrival of the Xbox One X, I’ve been trying to decide what to do with my OG Xbox One console. The obvious course of action would be to sell it, but I didn’t feel like going to the trouble of taking pictures, creating an ad, and dealing with flakey people who wanted to haggle over the price. So, I went to GameStop.com to see what the current trade-in value was: $70 of in-store credit. Not exactly great, but I didn’t expect much more than that. Surprisingly, the original PS4 design that I have was worth $140 of in-store credit, which I thought was not half bad. Then I noticed another promotion that’s running right now. I could get an extra $75 credit toward the purchase a new PS4 Pro if I traded in a PS4, Xbox, One, or Switch. The deal didn’t specify if that was an extra $75 per console, but if it did, that would be one hell of a deal. So, I off-loaded the games from the internal hard drives on both systems, did a factory reset on both, and re-installed the 500GB hard drive that came with my PS4 (no way were they getting the 2TB drive I had installed). I then gathered up all the cable and accessories and broght them to GameStop late this morning. Indeed, the promotion offered an extra $75 per console on the purchase of a new PS4 Pro. In the end, I received $215 for the PS4 and $145 for the Xbox One. Out-of-pocket cost for me? $37.09 including tax. Not bad for a system that normally costs $399.99. The console is now hooked up to the TV and restoring the games I backed up to an external hard drive last night. As I write this, it still has another 5 hours to go. I’ll check out some games on it later this evening after the kids go to bed. I don’t have a 4K TV as of yet, but I can maybe check out to see how things like super sampling can improve the image on my 1080p Plasma screen. This is my third PS4 Pro in 4 years. I bought the first one at launch in 2013, the revised version in 2015, and the Pro now in 2017. The question is what am I going to replace this thing with in 2019?
  7. I think I'll save this one for when I get my Xbox One X. I need at least one new game to play on it when it arrives in a few weeks.
  8. I played through this one again this past week and finished it this morning. This is my third play through of the game. The first time was the original release. The second was the Definitive Edition. This time I played the DE on Hard. I don't have the final tally, but I imagine that my death count on hard was somewhere in the 600 range.
  9. I forgot to mention that I acquired my ticket yesterday for a 7:40 PM showing on the 14th. My brother, who's been a fan since the original, will be joining me that night. It should be a lot of fun!
  10. That's two perfect scores in one year for Nintendo, the other obviously being The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’d say they’re on a roll. It will be fascinating to see how well this game is received by fans and critics. For most of the year, I’ve assumed that BotW would be the most likely bet for many Game of the Year awards, but Super Mario Odyssey might make the choice a little more difficult.
  11. It's hard to say with Nintendo. DLC is a relatively new thing for them, so we don't have a lot of precedent for what they do with the extra content after it's been out for a while. If you look, you'll find that there are no GOTY editions of either Mario Kart 8 or Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U. If you want all the content released for those games, you still have to buy the base game, plus the DLC separately at extra cost. (Please note, I'm not counting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in this discussion because--while it does feature the base game plus all the DLC in one package--it was only released on the Switch, and not the Wii U. Also, Nintendo did at one point offer a Wii U bundle that included a copy of Mario Kart 8, plus all the DLC content as a bonus, but I don't think that's the same thing either since that was tied to a hardware purchase and was not available as a stand-alone game.) If I had to guess, I would say that Nintendo will always keep the base game and the DLC as separate purchases. The price of the base game will eventually fall after a few years once it becomes a Nintendo Select title. However, the price of the DLC will remain constant. My hope is that Breath of the Wild goes on sale for Black Friday this year, but even then I would only expect, at most, a 30% discount ($41.99). More likely, we'll see either a 20% ($47.99) or 25% ($44.99) drop in price.
  12. This was when I first saw reserved seating in a theater as well. In fact, it was at a screening of The Force Awakens where I first encountered it.
