    Ships already have torpedoes & experimental lasers.... And have been named Enterprise.... So why not tractor beams?

    I would've thought about posting this later when they added the rest of the games if it wasn't posted about by then. But here are the ones I know.
    Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - I got this free from Xbox's Games With Gold. I found it interesting as time waster until I got to the giant rolling pin of death. Hitman: Absolution - I got this free from both PS Plus & Games With Gold. I've never played the other Hitman games which I've read are better. I've enjoyed this till I got lazy & refused to do a shooting gallery mini game. Just killing people with Piano Wire was way more fun for me. Deus Ex: Human Revolution - I got this free from PS Plus. I don't remember if it was the Director's Cut or not. I really enjoyed sneaking around during the tutorial. But after getting into the actual missions I had the urge to kill everyone with my robotic arms. I'm looking forward to becoming death proof & killing everyone with my robotic arms. Well assuming I can mod the PC version to do that. Just Cause 2 - I got this free from PS Plus. And I have to say JC2 is way more fun than GTA5. JC2 even has similar gameplay mechanics to GTA5 minus submarines & sharks. But even better as JC2 has multiple islands so boats can have an actual use of getting somewhere. Its so huge it might make Skyrim feel bad about its Dragons you can only ride & its boats that are stuck in docking positions. JC2 makes cars surfing fun instead of a mini game like Saints Row because now you can shoot & not worry about falling off. JC2 has a grappling hook like Link & Batman, but unlike those 2 it also doubles as a way to hook 2 items together to cause all kinds of chaos. However this game falls apart in story progression due to needing to cause chaos just like how Saints Row 1 & 2 require you to earn Respect before you can actually play the next mission. I'm kind of hoping they'll add the first Just Cause to this list of games. Even though JC2 is basically already that. But with better graphics.

    Screw the younger audience. I'm hyped for this movie. But I have a bad feeling that the movie won't do that good in the theaters because its got me thinking about the remade Judge Dredd. It wasn't a family movie or had a younger audience appeal either.

    I'm impressed that in the future everyone will still be driving muscle cars before the 1980s happened. I'll be seeing this movie based on the cars alone. Still I kind of doubt this will appeal to a younger generation because the cars don't reflect a more present day.

    A sequel already? I know its probably part of Marvel's continuity but couldn't they have waited until after the first proved itself. That way they could've at least gone back & considered a different space movie. Like the Starjammers. Well assuming Fox doesn't hold Corsair aka, Christopher Summers, hostage.

    I haven't played the original X-Com games. I did however use them as a defense due to an over generalization that old & forgotten games shouldn't get sequels. Well if I remember correctly.
     

    DNF still sucks though. Especially when compared to DN3D.

    Myk JL reacted to DeathscytheX in Everything You Need to Know about the Destiny BETA!   
    This. Bungie stayed professional about losing all the rights to the IP they created. They parted ways without being nasty publicly. But if you read the articles at that time, everyone could see they got screwed hard. Sony swooped in, embraced them and it has paid off. It was a golden opportunity to finally have access to the company that revolutionized FPS. Bungie even had part in PS4's controller design, which means they were given unprecedented access to Sony's stuff in regards to next gen. Bungie felt the love and is returning it while Xbox One and 360 is just a cash cow for them as of right now.
     
    It reminds me of Nintendo and Rare back in the 90s. I understand why MS did what they did... but they didn't go about doing it the right way. They were mad that Bungie wanted to go 3rd party, so they intentionally tried to hurt them. The fans have to suffer, but they should be blaming MS, not Bungie... they're too caught up in the fanboyism of it all.

    This is definitely one of those times where brand loyalty causes blindness. Halo Fans aren't getting screwed over. Certain Halo Fans stupidity to only own gaming devices from only one particular company is just bad decision making on their part.

    F'in whiners. I hope they realize that outside of the money Sony threw at Activision to get the special treatment for Destiny that Bungie is probably doing this as a slam in Microsoft's face for the way they treated them during their time developing Halo for them. Honestly MS screwed Bungie by taking the rights to Halo as part of the deal for them to leave but Destiny is already a much better game then Halo ever was (don't get me wrong I love the Halo series but honestly giving the game to 343 was, imo, the worst thing they could of done for the series) and I'm happy Sony is get preferential treatment with it. Make me even happier that I bought a PS4.

    I still wish that Warner Brothers bought Volition.... Think of all the Batmobiles they could've put in Saints Row....
     
    Everything Nintendo does with its current IPs excites me until I realize they're still trying to force that touch screen on the consumer.
     
    I could also imagine Kratos in DMC. Or The Last Of Us in Resident Evil or Dead Rising. Sly Cooper, Ratchet, etcetera could barely blend in with Viewtiful Joe.
     
    MS still feels like the obvious since Xbox got its fame by buying Halo.

    Myk JL reacted to Sledgstone in Steam In-Home Streaming   
    I tested two games tonight, Borderlands and The Walking Dead.. and Steam In-Home Streaming works. I was logged into my steam account on both machines at the same time. Once two systems are logged in at once, the Play and Install Game links change so there is a drop down for both options. You can select any game, click the drop down and choose to install or play / stream any game from either machine. So I picked Borderlands to try first and set it to stream from my new desktop. It loaded up fine but I had to change all the video settings because it has never been played on that PC before. I set everything to max graphics, something my laptop has not been able to do for this game, and started playing BL on my laptop in maxed settings. It worked flawlessly. I only played for a few minutes, but my laptop's fan didn't even kick on like it normally would for that game. It was definitely running off the other computer because I've tried these settings on my laptop before and it was unplayable do to how horribly laggy it became. But with the in-home streaming, it wasn't an issue at all. I seemed to have some issues with the Walking Dead. It lagged out on me once and a second time it kicked me from the game. But I think it was because the desktop was going into sleep mode. I'll have to test that again later.
     
    I'm now very interested in getting a Steam Machine.. but not some powerful one, no.. I want the lowest end steam machine that comes with a controller. As long as I can stream from my main desktop, I'll have no problem playing every game on my steam account and I won't be limited to what can only run on Steam OS. I wonder if some company will make a HDMI dongle steam machine made strictly for streaming from another computer over wifi. I'd buy it.

    Bad News as my SR4 hypothesis was wrong.
    The good news is I still don't have the urge to buy SR4 DLC until Volition moves onto SR5 without making a SR4 With DLC Included or PSN is removed from PS3.
