Exactly what I am banking on happening. And maybe Treyarch will be allowed to expand the zombie mode even more. I would love a Left 4 Dead clone with pointer controls.

But Wii U may end up being the winner of a fight where all of the fans have already left the stadium.

Duck Hunt Dog will be my new main!

And it is probably one of the best decisions they have made for the series. It may allow the games to evolve new and unique mechanics. Plus a three years dev cycle should produce a more robust experience.

I may bite on this sooner now that multi is confirmed. Plus I've grown tired of Rune Factory 4 for the time being so this will be a nice replacement.

I buy AC games... at 20-30 bucks. I don't like spending over half of my monthly gaming budget on a game no matter the system. It has to be something guaranteed to A) not drop in price immediately after launch B) have a good enough pre-order bonus like a physical goody, not DLC crap C) Be something I will get $60 of value out of over my play time.

I typically rate my money's worth as a dollar per hour of play. Exceptional experiences may increase this rate but it holds true for most games. Some games I get hundreds or thousands of hours in but some games are over after the "story mode" and 10-15 hours from a $60 game REALLY needs to be engaging to make it worth the entry price.

Bummer they aren't releasing these finished games because I would get them for the right price, but the industry really needs to adjust it's price-point and that may mean they need to reduce their production expenses. It has already been shown that the path they are going down in unsustainable. The closed studios and bankrupt publishers are proof enough.

They need to change their business model so that a series is not killed off so fast. If we had a Bond film every year people would stop seeing them. Give the series a rest so people can build hype.

Pity, but Wii U has two good games already. If I get bored with BLOPS2 I can get Ghosts for $15. I am hoping that when Treyarch's game comes around in a year or so we get a U version since they already have the tech running great on that system. Shouldn't be too hard for them to do.

I'd watch it out of curiosity. Part of me loves helping people with technology but I've grown weary of learning something I will never use myself just to help someone who cannot be bothered to use Google/Youtube/Instruction manual to get their answers. I know I could use a simple search but hey, I'm lazy and tired of doing it. :P

Duck Hunt Dog could be fun.

Of course the nice thing about this is since this roster including all these characters models, as soon as Sakurai reveals another character we'll know if it's fake or not.  If a character that hasn't been revealed yet looks exactly like how this supposed leak shows them, that means the whole things real and if they don't, it means the whole things false.

Knowing Sakurai, if this is a real leak he will change the look of the character poses on the select screen to keep us guessing when the next reveal happens.

I'm a tech guy and I adapted to other OSes fine but for some reason the differences on phones are even more jarring. I can stumble through an Apple interface but Windows phones just feel foreign. Call it me getting old and stubborn, but I don't feel like going through a tutorial to learn a new interface I have no intention of using. I just refer people with questions to youtube channels or friends/relative who are knowledgeable on the subject. Guess I'm just tired of being "that computer guy" who everyone badgers for tech help. I will never work in IT.

Another rumor this time coming from making star wars

  • George Lucas – George’s vision for the Sequel Trilogy was to take it right back to the beginning. Meaning, the beginning of the Jedi and Sith, how that came to be and how ancients forces were still influencing things. Luke was going to go on an adventure that would take him back to the origin of evil in the Galaxy. Some of these ideas have very much influenced the story.
  • This seems alot more reasonable and pausable, intrestingly enough that last bit was something that was forshadowed twice in the Clone Wars and the beginning could stand for two things.

It was alluded to in the novels as well. The "rule of two Sith" was only for one branch of the Sith. There was another group of Sith sitting in the shadows, biding their time and manipulating events on a very galactic scale.

I don't feel like spoilering stuff from the Legacy EU anymore since it is not canon so beware of spoilers below!

Jason Solo, as Darth Caedeus, approaches a group of shadow Sith on Corriban to ask for assistance. They decline saying their time was not yet ready. This group turned out to be linked to a group of Sith who toppled the Galactic Republic in the last comic series called Legacy which I referred to before (took place 127 years after Return of the Jedi). I don't know how involved Lucas was in EU material but this shadow group of Sith could be part of what Lucas was moving towards. Maybe not to topple the Alliance, but surely to lead to some mayhem.

Even more relevant to what you stated above, there was the dark "Force Being" who possessed Calista (Lukes ex-girlfriend who lost her force powers and disappeared to find them...long story, look it up if you are curious). Luke and his son Ben hunted after this being when Luke was banished from the Republic for being blamed for Jason Solo's fall to the dark side. Jedi knights were being possessed and believing everyone was an enemy and going mad. Luke determines this force being was to blame and hunts her down.

Also yet again, in the same story as above, there is the lost tribe of the Sith who were stranded on a world for centuries until they rediscovered space flight with some help and slowly developed a secret armada to try and take back the galaxy.

So there could be any number of links to what we will see as the "ultimate evil" developed in the new series. I don't want it to get to spiritual because they tried that a few times in the books and I prefered it being Sith and Jedi with a few other sides and views. Origin of Evil is a bit much for a lighthearted space opera adventure.

Anyone down with playing tonight or the next two days? This is my Friday from work and with school finally out I am looking for some big play sessions.

It's still a low battery! Mine never gets that low unless I fail to plug it in at night.

Holy crap your battery is low! Charge your phone.

I've actually used a bow...20 years ago.

But I'll bring my Super Scope just in case there is a problem with the exchange.

Forgot you were that far south. I will be making a trip to Portland in a few weeks so I'll PM you to see if we can arrange a deal down there.

Don't you live in Western Washington? I'm in South King County so we could meet up for an exchange if you wanted.

I'm interested in Lost in Shadow and maybe Bit.Trip.

I would sell Metroid Trilogy and Xenoblade on ebay as you could get $100+ easily off of the two of them alone.

Put up a list. People have done it before.

I was thinking one thread where we can post about departed forum members. I think we used to have one but that was more serious.

I like this. Can't wait for this series on long-forgotten posters to continue. Wonder who will be next?

Too bad if this is true as I just picked up FIFA on Wii U and probably wouldn't buy more than one game from a specific sport on a platform.

Anyone seen the released images of the newly designed X-Wing? I like that they are evolving the designs of the ships because it makes sense to reflect advances in technology with new designs. In the books the X-Wing went through a lot of upgrades up to the Jedi X-J7 in recent novels. I always wondered how these new versions of the X-Wing looked different, if at all, considering it was still referred to as an "X-Wing".

So Jason Momoa is returning to Atlantis.....

I miss Stargate.

Same here. I started watching the whole series again with my wife starting from the original film. I really do hope they manage to revive the tabled film or start a new show.

Second one looks like something for an ice world like the snow troopers. I wouldn't hate it if it it had a limited appearance but it would be disappointing if it was the new main design.
