We're under a loose NDA, so no screenshots or anything from me, and I am going to avoid giving much in the way of opinions: Communities let you pick a screenshot for a icon (cropped to a square of your choice), and a background image. Then it has a screen that lets you see who is playing what and who the members are. There is also a "message of the day" thing. Seems to have the most potential for games with smaller communities. Hopefully I can find an active one for Dynasty Warriors since that game has a tiny amount of people playing it online. Searching communities is impossible from what I can tell at the moment. You can see the ones you are subscribed to, ones your friends are in, and then a selection of featured communities. When you create the community you can pick a specific game the community is about or choose not to have a preference. There may be a way to find communities about a game from its app page but I haven't investigated that yet. Events is a new icon in the top row. Right now there is only one event, some playstation thing, so I havent given it a lot of thought. I think those are Sony only, not tied to communities. In the update notes it says there is now a Playstation Plus section listed among the "functions", but I have no idea what that means and I can't find an icon on the dahsboard in either row, my media section, or my profile. SUpposedly though it lists out all the current plus benefits, including all the free games (I love the idea, wish I could figure out where it is). You can now disable screenshots for trophies and choose to store them as PNGs. I havent tested the PNGs yet so I don't know how much bigger than are than the JPGs in file size. Not a concern for most people but I can take thousands of screenshots when running through a game so it's important for me. Groups is basically just a way to start group messages. Didn't seem like much else was there, and my friends and I already have a message thread going where we toss out screenshots and jokes so it seems a bit redundant. Might be more there to investigate, might not.
This is the first game that makes me interested in getting a WiiU. I love level creators, and games like n++ and Trials Evolution hold my attention specifically because over their editors. This kinda seems like the granddaddy of them all, though. $300 for a Mario Maker/WiiU bundle at Walmart is tempting.
Lost asked for every bit of that. Not to rehash the Leftovers thread, but you can't use mystery as a plot device and then get upset at people for demanding answers to the mystery. Every bit of marketing, every interview, every new season they teased and toyed and played up solving the mystery and where it would lead. That was the biggest reason for the success of the show. Yes, you can have character drama along side your mystery, but you can't use the mystery for convenience and expect your audience not to care.
