Doesn't look bad, but I've always favored the DC universe. Also, I have no idea who that large demon villain is. Someone enlighten me?

New vs old How Does the "New" 3DS Compare to the "Old" One?


Good stuff. If they have indeed fixed the 3D 'head-lock' issue as they claim, i will seriously consider getting the regular sized model. (I especially like the SNES themed buttons )

The white one looks very tempting, but it's so difficult to go back to that small form factor. The screen actually isn't nearly as big of a problem as the size of the device itself — too small, even for a guy with tiny female hands like myself.

Nintendo is apparently learning nothing from their branding confusion. Everyone is confused about the Wii U, and even retailers mislabel it in advertising? No problem — let's just name our latest hardware iteration of the 3DS the "New 3DS." Good God, what does that even mean?

Some long-time Nintendo fans have been clamoring for it to be called "Super 3DS," but that would be even more confusing since it actually sounds like a completely different console, considering the company's history. It's maddening.

As a side note: I've spent much of the summer traveling, so my 3DS got quite a bit of attention. Mostly Bravely Default and Link Between Worlds. For a system that had such a slow start, they really starting pouring out the games last year.

However much this guy cares, the board and stockholders will do their best to undermine him if it costs them money.

No, I don't think they will. I think that their reputation is getting to them. It is not entirely deserved - as I often say, Ubisoft is in many ways worse, at least to a PC gamer, but they don't have that terrible reputation.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

If The Sims 4 isn't a success, 'there won't be a Sims 5' - The Sims 4 for PC News

If The Sims 4 isn't successful it could spell the end for the franchise, Maxis has warned.
They cut a bunch of mainstay features, get feedback that's not ok, release the game anyway and now try to hold the franchise fans emotionally hostage.

Yep, that's EA.

What I was thinking, but expressed more delicately.

Especially when this model is available:

If true, that's one of the dirtiest tactics a company could employ. I never even considered that when I heard the story.

Wow, thread title change in my honor, I'm flattered.

I'm reeeaaaal close to pulling the trigger on the Destiny bundle, just waiting to hear back from a client about a side-job I'll do on the weekends to pay it off and not feel guilty. Figure I'll keep Destiny because hey, I'm sure it'll be fun and it's white PS4 or bust.

What other game should I have shipped with it? BF4 I assume?

Not really. I assume it comes with PS Plus because of Destiny.

Also "I'm sure it'll be fun" Do you remember Reach? (It might be fun, but honestly if you can get $60 for it, I'd take the money and run)

All the Bungie fanboys already have it on pre-order. It's ok Sek, there's plenty of room on my Fireteam.

By the time I get around to buying a next gen console, it'll have more than two good games (I hope).

That's why you should get back on the 360 horse. Plus, it'll make the transition all the more awe-inspiring. I don't need you and crosbie dragging our team down.

That is by far the stupidest thing I've done in some time. In BF3, couldn't you jihad jeep as the passenger and the driver would survive?
