  1. This is probably the one of if not the best first-party franchises ever, and perhaps one of the greatest franchises of all times. Uncharted has changed video games for the better and I think has been instrumental video games finally receiving some respect. I hate to rate these, as I don't want the last place ranked game to seem like a negative. Each title is fantastic in its own way. Simply put, there is no such thing as a bad Uncharted game. Anyway without further ado:

     

    #1: Uncharted 4: A Thieves End (Quite possibly probably the greatest video game ever made. Wrapped everything up so well. Utterly gorgeous, captivating, and moving.)

    #2: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (The spectacle, the action, the story). 

    #3: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (Underrated, but not quite as stupendous as Among Thieves which set an impossible bar only to be exceeded by A Thieve's End)

    #4: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (Impossible to forget the start of it all).

    #5: Uncharted: Golden Abyss (Criminally underrated and underplayed).

    #6: Uncharted: Fight for Fortune (Not a bad game, but uh.....it's a card game. Nuff said).

  2. I never planned on coming back to Destiny after putting over 1000 hours into it. I really thought I was done. This expansion has me hooked. Gally is back and we get more Earth content, a new campaign, and A FALLEN RAID. Ugh. Damn you Bungie! Damn you! I'm just a sucker apparently.

  3. So I've never seen the Star Wars movies before.  I went and saw the new one with a buddy of mine recently, and I liked it.  I think I'd like to get into the franchise.

     

    Not sure how many die hard fans are around here that would know the difference between the various DVD/Blu Ray releases... but worth a shot.  Seems every release has it's ups and downs with the number of changes that get made, uncomfortable edits get made, things get added and taken out.  Obviously the most recent Blu Ray's would be the best in terms of video/sound quality... but I don't mind giving up some of that (and saving a little money xD) if older DVD releases do a better job of maintaining the integrity of the original films.  Though if the Blu Ray's are without a doubt the best way of enjoying them, I may suck it up and throw a little more money at it.

     

    Anyone with a little knowledge on the topic want to help steer me in the right direction for the ideal Star Wars viewing experience?

     

     

     

    PS... I am going to get them all, so even if you hated Eps 1-3 as it seems people do, I'd prefer if this didn't turn into a conversation about skipping those.  Thanks! :)

     

    Just buy the Complete Saga on Blu-ray. Going into it with an open mind. All 6 are great and all 6 have their flaws. I love each and every episode equally. People are thankless and spoiled and its cool to hate popular things.

  4. I ABSOLUTELY, 1000000000000% would and am pumped for this! Have wanted a legitimate WW1 game since I was a kid. Like for over a decade! If this is true I'm all for it. Sick and tired of futuristic shooters. Want COD to go back to WW2, and if Battlefield 5 was WW1 (and had a campaign)......I just can't even. So much excitement on my end.

  5. Wow, really didn't think this would happen.

    It was pretty much confirmed when they made the announcement and they had to calm down angry fans. This was expected and is zero surprise. 

    Keeping the Console Wars fanboyism to a minimum, I think this whole thing is an incredibly silly decision for Microsoft.

     

    They've paid $40 Million (IIRC) to make ROTTR a timed exclusive. This was most likely done to rival Uncharted 4's Holiday release before it got delayed, as Xbone has no game in a similar vein to Uncharted. Now that Uncharted has skipped off to 2016, Tomb Raider is left with the behemoth that'll refuse to share sales - Fallout 4, while not everyone's cup of tea, it is undeniably going to leave a huge impact sales wise for other games in November. 

     

    So bottom line, Microsoft has paid however much to advertise a game as an exclusive, when a year later, the same game will probably sell better on the competitors console. Hopefully all this controversy deters them from ever making a decision like this again.

    Very true. They should delay this game. The plan is gonna backfire Fallout 4 will demolish it. Also Xbox has almost 10 million less console sales than the PS4. No doubt tomb raider 2 sells way better on the PS4 even a year later. Microsoft's game division is crumbling. They have to pay for timed exclusive titles to have a chance at survival. PS4 is lapping them time and time again. PS4 has all the good 1st party exclusives (Uncharted, Horizon, Ratchet and Clank, Little Big Planet, Infamous, Killzone, Last of Us etc. etc.) and all the relevant and big time timed exclusive dlc or exclusive content. I.E. Destiny, Call of Duty, Battlefront etc.

  6. So I just platinumed Battlefield Hardline today. I was curiously looking forward to the new DLC and the trophies. I just 100%ed BF4 and completing expansions is something I really enjoy. Thus I looked up the new DLC trophies and according to XboxAchievements, 4 of the 8 new trophies require 10000, that's right, 10,000, 10k, TEN-THOUSAND, kills with EACH class for a total of 40,000 kills. I am extremely pissed off. Battlefield is not COD. It takes longer to get kills. I've put 1.5 days in and am just barely at the 2k kills mark. I'm seriously pissed off, and that's putting it lightly. I try to 100 percent every game I can, and turning my back on this game or putting in days of time are my only options and my life is too valuable. I'm literally outraged at this insane requirement. It's a real dick move by Visceral. If I were to get them it would take years of slow and steady playing. Maybe two years total. Is anyone else pissed off about this?

  7. To each their own. They're just not my cup of tea. Imo, the first Sly game was decent and where the series should have stopped. I disliked the second and third in the series very much. So much so that I haven't played the fourth one in the series even though I got it for free.

    Trust me, the fourth was the best of the all! None of the annoyances of the 2nd and 3rd.

  8. So I was browsing the interwebz (is that still what the "cool kidz" call it? lol) and came across this really neat and surprising video on the apparently misused and misrepresented silencer. Check it out!

  9. Choosing games to play specifically for the trophies has turned out bad for me in the past. I've tried it for a couple of games and I really regret having games like TS or the Sly trilogy on my profile. I'm not trying to step on anybody's toes, it's just that I didn't have fun with those games. If there's no fun in it then it's like work and just not worth the effort.

    Btw, I didn't find TS and the challenges at the end of Sly 3 to be "easy". I thought TS was a glitchy mess and the Sly 3 challenges to be infuriating which made playing them even worse.

    I used to feel the same way about fps. I'm not saying that fps aren't for you, but maybe you just haven't found your niche. I happen to like Killzone, but I can see where someone new to the genre may have trouble with it because of the clunky feel of the controls (which it is notorious for). There are lots of other fps that are much more responsive and you may find those more agreeable.

    One other thing, I'm planning on going back to KZ2 in the near future to finish up my elite run and live online for a couple weeks to get the mp trophies. :P

    I was hoping to get a group together from here to do a lot of the mp stuff with. Maybe joining up may change your mind.

    Why U no love the Sly games?! :huh:  Nothing cheap about those games. All were fantastic IMO.

  10. And this is why I hate country specific promo codes I'm in Scotland and we never get them I've had to buy codes for the Doctor Pepper Battlefield the Cheetos Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare Codes it really annoys me that they don't make it world wide promo because we get Mountain Dew here to be fair it's not the same stuff they reduce the sugar in ours but still.

    Yeah man, I hear you.

  11. Hey guys! I'm an avid Call of Duty fan, and I really want to get all the Mtn Dew and Doritos gear for Advanced Warfare (Fuel Up For Battle) promotion. Unfortunately, I don't have a 7eleven anywhere near Vermont, and I've already fully pre-ordered my copy at Gamestop. With this said, would anyone be willing to give me codes from 7eleven and or Walmart? Or any code from Mtn. Dew bottles and Doritos bags for that matter? If so I'd be much obliged (which is an understatement). If anyone does help me out, please PM me the codes. THANKS SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! The official requirements are below:
