    If at first you don't succeed, try again or something like that.
    At least the controller is a more useful alternative than their camera peripheral.  But with the amazing bunduru XB1 deals flying around lately, I don't know why anybody would opt for this version.  Especially considering that the XB1 supports external hdds.

    I used figureprints to make my 360 avatar when they still had their Microsoft partnership.  It would be nice if they worked with other publishers because they do nice work and my figure is pretty sweet.

    The "one mistake" Destiny made?!  I can give you a couple dozen more if you've forgotten.
    I was hoping the PP phone app would give us control over our team.  Sending them on missions, building shit, that sort of stuff.  I remember the Assassin's Creed IV app allowed you to do that and while you were away, you were still gaining supplies and money.

    Am I excited for the second best game that's to be released on September 1st?  You bet your ass I am!  Unfortunately for it, Tuesday's best game will keep me busy for a while so Mad Max will have to wait.  If only they could have nailed down a summer release for it...

  7. madmankevin added a post in a topic What's the best console you never had?   

    That question used to be extremely easy for me to answer with Dreamcast as my answer, but @HardAct has since made this question more difficult!
    I guess I would say the original Game Boy then.  My family couldn't swing it at the time, but I was fortunate to get myself every other console I wanted over the years, and skip the ones I didn't want.  Other than the Dreamcast, I wish I had an original Game Boy back during its day.

    An all Japanese update!!!
    Gal Gunvolt - it's a remake (or tweak) of the DS' Mighty Gunvolt, with Beck from Mighty No 9 as a new character (see my avatar).  It's a nine level Mega Man clone, but easier, and you don't gain boss weapons when you beat them.  But it's classic Mega Man gameplay throughout.  In addition to Beck, you get the Mighty Gunvolt character, and a Gal Gun character.  Beck has a useless ground slide, Gunvolt has a double jump, and Gal Gun has a hover.  500 Yen on the Japanese PSN store, quick little game, quite fun, and leave me wanting Mighty No 9 already.  3/5
    Dream C Club: HostGirls On Stage - Jesus...  The Japanese gamers are weird!  Okay, so there's 14 women (or "HostGirls"), all dressed in French maid outfits, each with a unique stereotype (busty, robotic, manly, etc).  You pick a girl, you pick a song, and you watch them sing and dance to it.  That's it.  Really.  It's a free to play game, you get one slightly catchy J-pop song, and there's a marketplace where you can buy more songs for the girls to dance to.  That's the game.  The Japanese gamers are weird...  One bonus point for an easy 30 minute set of trophies: 2/5
    Spelunker Z - Another free to play game on the Japanese marketplace, but unlike the last one, you actually play this one, and there's a ton to do here!  There are 75 levels, all of which can be played solo or online with up to six other players (you can toggle their screens on or off, allowing you to watch what all six are doing at all times), boss battles, tons of diversity in the levels/enemies/traps/designs, and loot.  Tons of loot.  It's a Square-Enix game, so on top of loot that gives you in game perks, there are also licensed loot.  I got a really sweet Hyperdimension outfit, and my friend made me extremely jealous by grabbing a Lara Croft drop.  Fun gameplay, great co-op, tons of loot, great F2P model, and lot of levels make this a pretty awesome game.  Warning: it is really old school in it's platform design (you can instantly die with jumps that are a pixel too high, missing a vine, etc).  But the fun trumps all.  4/5  More thoughts here:

    Well, I had no idea he was offered the director's job on Speed and Men In Black after Dogs.  That was new for me!

    The "doh" was more about how I think things are harder to see on the new boards.  Even looking a second time, you probably didn't see my linked thread in my first post with my detailed Teslagrad impressions.  Check it out!
    The "doh" is also about how that thread about a great game was largely ignored.  But PS+ will resolve that issue shortly!
