Argue about Steam in the Steam Thread Edition
E3 can't get here any faster Edition

Old thread >>193016
So how much of what that chart says is actually true? Regarding number of modes, maps, etc.

And has there been any word on split-screen local multiplayer?
Is Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut any good? I've already got Shadowrun Returns but I haven't played it (Steam libraries, maaan) and it's a little over £3 in the sales for the next few days.
Want a Powerstone successor?:

And unlike other shittier crowd funded vidya, there is a playable alpha build you can try.

So Xenoblade X is due out in Japan April 29th. That's a lot sooner than I was expecting.
Don't forget that so many things went bad with people leaking the worldwide release of Pokemon everywhere, they decided that we don't deserve to have that.

Goddamn, everything about Splatoon is like a manifestation of the early 2000's. I'm not even gonna play the game, because I really don't care about shooters on consoles, but I still love watching everything about it just for the massive wave of nostalgia that hits me everytime I see it.
>I really don't care about shooters on consoles,
I don't care about shooters *at all*, and I can say that Splatoon is incredibly fun even so. I got it as part of the packaged-in Wii U bundle thing, so I figured I would give it a try, and it's tons of fun. It's not really like a standard shooter since you're not trying to kill opponents, and that makes a big difference in how the thing plays and feels. It's less about twitch reflexes and more about strategy.

Sony hates the PS Vita – why?Anonymous
save file
image:142699046200.png(1.1MB , 1050x700 , why does Sony hate you?.png)
It was visible from the beginning, but now it's just blatant. Sony does not give a shit. If Sony wanted, they could have ordered the development and release of many great titled on PSP 2.0. With the system's power in the right hands, most games could be developed for/ported to it. Vita has enough power to handle most games that aren't TOO big or TOO long.

But Sony is not supporting the system, and I think it is a very deliberate move on their part. Is it because they fear the PS4 will fail if they won't delegate ALL resources to it? I want to know what you think (if you give a fuck to think).
Yea a format was better than their myriad of Storage Media they attempted in the run up to MP3 Device Standardization and their replacement by phones and tablets.

And really that kinda game is fine when its new to market and their competitor hasn't been out there for over twenty years with successful handhelds. Really if the VITA had used standard MicroSD Memory Cards . It would have been a much harder choice between the two handhelds.
They used CDs and DVDs with the first two Playstations, though. And for something they wanted to push, UMDs and Vita cards aren't even used with other Sony devices.
That just means they hadn't developed a "reasonable" competitor to CDs/DVDs at the time. Also, part of their reason for supporting DVDs was that it made the PS2 one of the cheapest DVD players on the market at release and so helped to sell a lot more.

The Legend of Zelda Thread is not the General Edition

So Lisa is a fantastic game and everyone should play it. It will make you feel things in your soul that you never thought you could. Also, it has a pretty great soundtrack.

Is this real or is Polygon really that inane (not that I'd doubt the latter).
Hmm, as I thought it's a shoop. Title is cribbed from the Bayonetta 2 review and such and such. Not that Polygon doesn't have serious issues with self-righteousness, and their Xenoblade 3D review is pretty meh, suffers from blog-level tone and I'm already spotting a few outright errors in it.

This looks so fucking awesome.
Man, the Midgar parts of FF7 were so fucking cool. So fucking cool. I just remembered those out of the blue. I don't know why.
I know, right? Like, the game opening up was awesome and all, but those first few hours in magic-cyberpunk-ville got me hype as fuck.

I found it pretty dull and tedious, but I played it long after it first came out.

Old one's being too big for its britches over there: >>189967

Picked a random pic from my screenshot folder as OP. Then I had to convert it to .png, which kinda destroyed the spontaneity of it all. Still much preferable to CP, though.
And Club Nintendo went down hard.

Quite sad to see one pass that young.

Old one is sageing so it's time for a new one.

P4AU is coming to the US in September.

Ya, kind of regretting not buying a wiiU bundle with camecube controller adapter. No idea why Nintendo doesn't just make more.

As for Amiibo's... good old scalping. Knew I should have just bought Fox. All I ever wanted was some SF merch... oh well.

In any case... Melee has the exact same set up at EVO as last year so get ready for more hour long sets.

Eh, we dont have an Amiibo scalping problem here in sweden.
Guessing because they cost more here, like all toys.
149kr to 199kr is the standard.

Also no problems so far with the 3rd party gamecube adaptor.

Between two Smash Bros (fun to play, not really to watch especially with how long sets go), Killer Instinct (tryhard inbuilt hype and general awkwardness), and Tekken 7 and MKX being way too new for mainstage (clunky unfamiliarity) means this is going to be a very sleepy EVO.

Scalping in the US is pretty bad. Little Mac for instance goes for around $50 now. When Nintendo says "limited edition" they REALLY mean it. Unless it's Pikachu and Pario, almost all of the figures are being sold for far more than their MSRP.

Hearing about the ten year deal for the game makes me feel something similar happened with StarCraft 2, so when is part 3 due out for that anyway? or does anyone still care or remember it's in three parts to get the whole story equal time.

I didn't know Medievil was a collectathon platformer. I always assumed it was a typical action/beat em up. Games "aging" means practically nothing to me, so I might try it out anyway.

Please, that kind of political gaming is so weak, there's no need to say "You're loyal to us but don't even know it!". That kind of lame reasoning only leads to corrupt practice like what GamerGate supposedly organized to prevent. Just let the handful of people who care support to the degree they want to. Gamergate is an arbitrary affiliation and can easily get replaced if something filling its purpose is needed again.

Dragon Age Keep is out, wanna have a Dragon Age General to talk about it or the game it is creating a story choice file for? Anyone have any strong feelings about it?
I'm undecided if I'm actually gonna get Inquisition but this thing still seems pretty interesting.

I'm kind of lost on the DA2 section choices though, never played it since it was awful. Surely some of the rest of you must be in the same situation when it comes to that.
Leliana always starts hardened in Inquisition, but you can unharden her through two plot events as long as you didn't do that spoiler.
Wait, shit, by spoiler I meant killing Marjolaine.
So killing Marjolaine makes it impossible not to make her unhardened in Inquisition? That sucks, you could kill her in Origins and still leave Leliana unhardened
