No PS4, plus I'm saving my money for Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U.

I badly want a white PS4 but Destiny would just be part of the package for me.

I'm not playing/buying destiny because I'm not the biggest fan of first person shooters.  :P TF2 is where it's at in that regard.

I'm not the biggest fan either, especially these days when the gaming market is saturated as shit with 'em and most aren't up my ally, or I get a strong sense of (bad) deja vu constantly.

But it does look fun as hell to me. Everyone knows how much fun hell is.

I would like to randomly say I miss the fuckin' shit out of those feels I got when first playing Metroid Prime. I want another game like that, a game that I think perfectly encapsulated what the genre 'First Person Adventure' means; yeah, it's a first-person-shooter-esque game, but I really felt like I was behind the helmet and while mechanically it wasn't great, it was an awesome exposition of a first person shooter with immense depth. I feel like Destiny may have a similar feel in terms of what it aims to be, but I want that Metroid lore and the very particular vibe the series brings.

Still...Destiny would be a nice similar game to mull over. I'm pretty positive that Destiny will release for PC eventually. I was floored when I found out it wasn't releasing initially for the platform given it's exactly the type of game the PC does best.

SIMS 4.


I'm playing SIMS for the first time. At first I was MEH


And then I got all in to it...


And then my SIM died.

It was depressing.

That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

In a bit of a pickle. Do I want to wait until tomorrow and get a hard copy, or do I just install it straight on to my Xbone?
I like having physical copies but I kind of want to play it like immediately lol.

Seriously dude. Why would you forfeit he ability to play your game at anyone's house who also owns a PS4 just over one day? Also, that game'll make great short term swap fodder with other friends who have a game you may wanna borrow.

4 shore, I suck at fighting games but would be so down, I love the original Killer Instinct.

I'm just going to wait until tomorrow to get Destiny though, for a few reasons:

1. I just really like having a physical copy of my games/music/movies. I guess I'm a bit of a clutter bug
2. It would take up a fuck ton of space on my drive, and having it on disc will help with that a little
3. I wouldn't really get to play it tonight anyways because I have class at 9 and will probably go to bed soon anyways
4. I can possibly trade in some games I'm not playing at gamestop and get it for a potentially cheaper price

Glad to hear it dude. I'm always leary about getting rid of old games just to get hosed on trade-indeals at retailers though. I definitely know of the lure of a fun brand new game but it seems like ten years from now they'll just end up being as old and ho hum as the multiple games you initially traded in for it in the first place so it's almost like perpetually making lateral moves while steadily shrinking your library.



Oh and...



HAPPY 19TH BIRTHDAY PLAYSTATION!!!!!

True enough, the only game I was thinking of trading in though was GTA V since it's getting rereleased in a little bit anyways heh.

Motherfucker, you better get some serious value for that then. Like at least $30 if it's in near mint or better.

They'll probably try offering like $10 or some bullshit like when I offered Modern Warfare when it was still relevant, and then the next week I went in and I saw my exact copy sitting on the shelf for like $45.

Then don't play their game. At least ebay it and see what comparable condition copies are going for since you'll obviously make more off a private buyer.

I will tell you from experience to just wait and to get a physical copy. I myself always prefer physical version of media like this over digital ones. Cause the package comes in and all that stuff. Plus it being more flexible I guess you can say in what you can do with it. Say take somewhere else without having to take the whole console, lend it to someone or more like give it to someone and maybe never see it again, trade it in for something. Also avoiding stupid things like DRM and all that stupid digital rules crap that gets used sometimes.

All in all, physical copies of games I feel like are more worth getting that digital copies.

I'm still not sure if I will end up getting Destiny or not.

I would also check out selling it to amazon.  Thier buy back program is better than Gamestop, and getting amazon gift cards in return is worth so much more than Gamestop store credit.

PS4 will be brought to the jingle.house by Santa this year.  He'll undoubtedly bring Destiny, Watch Dogs, and The Last of Us.  Maybe even Shadow of Mordor.

Honestly, I'd just get Shadows of Mordor as opposed to Watch Dogs, although I'm a sucker for anything Lord of the Rings. It does look like it will be one of the better entries released under the Lord of the Rings name though.

I'm just here to say how much I love emulators. I'd much rather the real thing obviously, but my god is it awesome to be able to play foreign games that I wouldn't be able to play even if I owned the systems. I just started a game in Final Fantasy XII Zodiac International Version and it's friggin' awesome to relive the experience I had with one of my favorite RPGs (even if the latter-half was a bit lackluster) but with all these awesome improvements and extras.

It took me a while to get the emulator working optimally but with all the right plug-ins, filters, sound and graphics cards, I've got the emulator looking better than the original. That was my main issue with emulators is usually the gaming experience wasn't as good but with the set up I have now...it's officially better than the real thing considering I'd never be able to play games like these. Final Fantasy X International Version is next and I expect I'll have nostalgiagasm when I get to it. Woot woooooot!  :coolio :azn:
