Almost immediately after I asked, I blocked him.

He never would have been ultra productive on any of the Raids or anything - he was choosing his armor by what it looked like.

I guess it's a YMMV thing, but I don't get people who do this. I don't give a shit what my little screen guy looks like as long as I can kick some ass.

And why every team wouldn't choose something that was actually a good camouflage is beyond me.

When I played organized team games that allowed for custom skins, we ALWAYS overwrote the enemy skins with something bright orange with a target in the middle.

Surgeon Simulator is LESS THAN A DOLLAR RIGHT NOW.

You're fucking dumb if you don't buy it.

I have been informed that Rocket League is the shit and it's free for PS+ members this month.

Getonit.

I'm dropping my PS+ account. The PS3 offerings have been shit for a few months now, and the Vita offerings are no better

I have three months left on it, so I've got to play the hell out of the few gems I still have unplayed before they expire.

My mother-in-law renewed mine for Christmas. I was going to drop it at that time but I agree with you. Lately the titles have been underwhelming. I ended up going to GameStop last month and picking up South Park: The Stick of Truth and Far Cry 3. I finished the South Park game and will definitely play it again. It's a lot of fun. Started Far Cry 3 and really love the game play so far, but I'm only barely into it at this point.

As for the PS+ account, what are some of the "gems" you're going to miss?

For me, they would be Pinball (my Creature from the Black Lagoon table is a perfect way to sneak in 15 - 20 minutes of PS3 before I have to leave the house), The Cave (which my wife and I have played a few times now), Counterspy (tons of fun although a little long to load) and Hoard (again, a quick time killer).

Of the bigger games (Borderlands 2, etc.) once I play them I'm done with them with very few exceptions.

The offerings have been a bit on the lame side (though Rocket League is the shit, yo), it's the flash sales that are getting really super awesome.

But yeah, I'm thinking of getting rid of mine. At least until a particularly strong plus month shows up.

I don't know that there are any on the PS3 that I return to a lot. The big one, X-Com, I just went ahead and bought.

Maybe Little Big Planet 2, since that's one of those games you can pick up, have some quick fun, and put down any time.

For the Vita, though, there are a lot of little time killers I'd miss. Terraria is a load of endless fun. A couple of cool motorcycle games (like Joe Danger), a skateboarding game (I think it's called Ollie), and stuff like that.

I'm replaying Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward on the Vita right now, which I got on PS+ and definitely in my top five "Holy shit this game is amazing" list. They just announced #3 and it's now my most anticipated game.

I was going to skip out on this, but it looks pretty fucking solid - especially since they've put in a super-easy mode on all three games (1 and 3 had so many "FUCK THIS BULLSHIT NEVER ENDING ENEMY RESPAWN" moments).

I love those games, but was not a fan of the combat and HATED how they were giving you hints on how to solve the puzzles within 20 seconds or so. The puzzles are easy enough as it is, stop holding my hand!

But loves the settings, story, characters, action setpieces, exploration, climbing, all that stuff.

I really hope if they're sticking in a super easy mode into the first three that means they'll already have a super easy mode built into #4 when it comes out.

I swear, for every set piece that's utterly spectacular there's a solid two and a half hours of shooting respawning dudes in the jungle or, even worse, a forced stealth section that I seriously cannot fucking stand (my copy of The Last of Us sits unplayed because of this).

A demo for the Uncharted Collection is up, apparently it's from the train sequence in Uncharted 2.

Also: Beat Takeshi is in Yakuza 6, which will never see the light of day in the states.

They've also managed to motion capture his fucked up face perfectly. NEXTEGNTECH.

Actually it's the rooftop helicopter bit, turns out.

They include the photo mode in the demo, and that's pretty delightful.

I might be sold on a PS4 over a One now. The reason?

No Man's Sky.

If they manage to pull off what they're aiming for and actually make it FUN, it sounds like the game I've been dreaming of my entire life.

I want No Man's Sky to be awesome stoner gaming bullshit, but there is absolutely no way it's going to be good. It's Spore, basically.

It's been in development by the same, like, five people for the last five years and every time they show any footage it's basically the same planet every single goddamn time. Their disinterest in showing anything off that actually varies in comparison to what they have been showing for the last couple of years is the biggest red flag in the world.

I need No Man's Sky to be just me riding around the galaxy and naming planets after euphemisms for dick and balls, though.

Yeah, No Man's Sky looks like Elite: Dangerous with your pilot on LSD. I'll pay 5 whole dollars for it on Steam. Eventually.

This is my biggest concern.

I'm not overly worried about the secrecy as I am about the potential depth of the game. They've created a way to produce mega tons of content, and it's pretty as hell, but it's not clear that there will be a lot to DO.

Tag creatures, shoot some stuff, get resources so you can get to the next planet.

Chance it might be shallow.

I'm holding out hope, though. Too many of these games want to be hardcore sims. I want something easy to dive in and play while also providing all that big free-roaming space exploration.

FYI, the console's price is dropping to $350 in the very near future.

I doubt I'd get it until late next summer, when Shoe Jr (and his Xbox One) are gone away to college, so maybe it will be down even more by then.

I would gladly have paid $470 this week for a PS4 and Tony Hawk 5. And then the reviews came out. And the YouTube videos.

I was really excited for a return to form for the Tony Hawk series, too, one the one video I saw (on Colbert, I think ... or maybe that other guy) was reeeaally underwhelming.

So sad. The first four games, and especially the first two, were flawless. The formula was perfect.

The Tony Hawk game was made literally to hold onto the copyright and is a glitchy, unholy mess of terrible, the videos are amazingly garbagetacular.

It's not the glitchy mess that makes this game awful (Skate 3 is nothing BUT glitches, and that's an AMAZING game). It's that there's NOTHING to do. It's like Goat Simulator, minus the goat.

The icing on the cake...when you fuck up a manual, nothing happens. You don't fall on your ass. You just continue skating. There's no tension, no deciding whether you want to go for one more trick and risk losing the combo. It's like playing Let's Make A Deal, knowing there's a car behind every door.

Fucking awful.

I can STILL fire up TH2 or TH4 and lose a few hours of my life trying to nail every challenge on every level. I don't know that you can say you can "beat" those games, but if so, I've probably done both a dozen times each.

Best one was TH2 for Oxbox. It had all of TH2, all of TH1 (with the TH2 mechanics), and a few levels exclusive to that version of the game.

One of the best of all time.
