The new Xbox model is fucking over gamers everywhere. Not to mention its trying to sneak pics of you jerking off to the new tomb raider. I was pretty much joking about the terrorism thing, but seriously, you're a straight up silly little bitch if you think Microsoft didn't fuck up royally. Or you fit into their demo.

State of Decay is pretty damn fun, folks. I like the idea of banding together in little outposts during the zombie apocalypse, and rooting around for various goods throughout the environment. However, there are some flaws in this system of scavenging and building up your homebase, i.e. you can only carry one big load of resources like timber at a time and you can't throw a bunch of stuff into the back of a car or pick-up. This just makes the resource gathering tedious, and it could be simplified. Nevertheless, I had an absolute blast just roaming around and saving random people, running over zombies, and bringing back guns and medicine to my crew. After the debacle that was Far Cry 2, I needed something simple and fun, and this is it. A really solid XBLA game, right hurr.

My definition of fucking over gamers everywhere? Releasing firmware that bricks perfectly good consoles.

Meanwhile, Microsoft seems to have announced a reversal of the Xbox One DRM policies.

Super good news that Xbox nixed the used game ballyhoo and 24/7 internet connectivity requirement. And it was absolutely necessary to regain some demographics. I was going for the One anyway, but this is a great bonus.

To play multiplayer on PS4 you will need PS+, which is $5 a month I believe.

So, The Last of Us is pretty great. Naughty Dog really made a one of a kind experience. PS3 owners: Play this game.

I got a guy at work who keeps telling me The Last of Us is THE PS3 title, and one of the greatest games ever. Based on what I've seen, I'm inclined to believe him. And for the first time, I actually wish I owned a PS3. Looks like I'll have to cajole my dad into letting me borrow his. Seriously.

Dragon's Dogma has been occupying a lot of my free time of late (along with breakreep's, I've noticed). It plays exactly like what Dragon Age would play like if Capcom made it, and bears a strong resemblance, save the relatively large open world environments. On that note, I wish they had made the pawn system a bit more intuitive and configurable like Dragon Age, so I could at least have my support characters perform consistent and reliable actions. As it is, it seems as if they just do their own thing, sometimes helping me but mostly just being target bait. Still, the game is very fun and time-consuming, and I enjoy traipsing around slaughtering goblins and the occasional mythical beast, like a chimera, cyclops, or ogre. I almost had my ass roasted by a huge dragon, and just had to run like hell as I couldn't seem to even damage him. What a bastard.

Are the TLOU controls similar to Uncharted?

If this game is even half as good as this video shows, then I think it might be safe to say that GTA IV could be the best of the series, and definitely a serious contender for GOTY (if not a serious contender for Game of the Decade).
