    Just downloaded "TMNT: Out of the Shadows" on the XBLA and it is AWESOME. With just a little bit more put into it and some polish to the graphics, I could easily have seen this as a full price title instead of an arcade game. The turtles all play beautifully, it is well voice acted, the animations and character designs are really good, there is a good array of combo moves to learn and it is just a blast to play.

    Oh and I also grabbed Max Payne 3 in the Rockstar Sale for dirt cheap

    Good to hear. I was more looking fo rward to the animated game though. I just HATE realistic turtle looks. I mean, nostrils? Almost as bad as a third toe.

    You don't have to worry about nostrils or third toes, because when you are playing the game it doesn't zoom in on any of them THAT close

    instead it is basically like this



    so while you can clearly see that is Raph it is not so clear as to see his nostrils or count his toes

    oh and WHAT animated game?

    This is the only one that I was aware of and I didn't even know it was out until I saw an ad on the xbox dashboard

    sorry, no idea. I still have loads of room on my 360 as I don't usually download games on it as I prefer to have a disc. But then games like this come along and I have to make an exception

    Hmm looks adequate I guess, but not as good as TMNT: OOTS which is funny seeing as that one is a full title and OOTS is only an arcade game. To be honest, looking at what that trailer shows...it should be the other way around.

    man The Shredder at the end of Level 3 is HARD.

    I have tried to beat him at least 10 times and the best I have managed is to get it down to just him and Leo, tho by that time I was all out of pizza (med kits) and I had so little energy that the life bar looked empty... I didn't beat him.

    Still just gotta keep on trying

    Wow! That actually sounds really awesome to me. When I am at home I much prefer to play games on the TV rather than a portable. If this does what it is supposed to do and does it well then this is a definite purchase for me.

    It will even let you play your PlayStation 4 via Remote Play with DualShock 4
    This part really intrigues me as well. If I understand this correctly, then this will allow you to play your PS4 on a different TV in your house using remote play. That is very awersome. My PS3 (and eventually my PS4) is hooked up in the living room and sometimes my wife or my daughter are using the living room TV so it will be awesome to be able to play the PS4 on another TV in the house using this device. This just takes the "Off TV" feature of the Wii U and puts it on steroids.

    Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams has an expansion pack!



    Also it is now available for PS3/360, and now Wii U!



    So no excuses! Play the best platformer not called "Mario"

    Of course it will probably get lost in the shuffle with the GTA V news.
    But seriously if you didn't buy it yet, you really should. Amazing platformer.
    And now it's got an expansion pack.

    Deviot, I bought the Standalone expansion yesterday, for 2.49 dollars. I'm getting ready for it.

    on the sidenote, here's a brand new announcement from Valve

    Steam OS for your Television

    Beat me. I came to post that. Lol.

    It's not going to replace Windows, but it does show they're hedging their bets.
    It could be a nice alternative to or a secondary console idea.
    It's a free OS that's centered around gaming so there are a couple of scenarios
    where people might like it

    1.) You want to play your big PC releases? Build/buy a small Home Theatre PC, and stream the games you have on the bedroom computer
    (Skyrim, Bioshock Infinite, Dishonored, Black OPS II, etc. etc.) to the SteamOS based HTPC to be played on the Television.

    2) You're a big time Linux fanboy who would love a machine to play source games on. All of Valve's games have Linux versions.
    So you could buy/build an HTPC, and use it to play Half-Life, Counter Strike, Left 4 Dead, etc. on your TV. Also you could use
    it to watch movies from your computer, or use services like Netflix or Blip (Valve is trying to court them to make Linux ports)

    Of course, we'll know more in a couple of days with the next announcement. If anybody wants to play PC games on their TV today
    of course you don't NEED Valve's OS. Any capable PC with an HDMI out on the video card can be a home theatre PC. So you could
    simply hook your PC up to the TV now, and run Steam in Big Picture Mode with a gamepad. This allows you to use Valve's web browser
    too. So you can comfortably websurf with a gamepad.

    Still, if Microsoft continues to do unpopular things, and Apple continues to close off more, and more of their OS to the point power users can do
    even less, then Valve's experiment could be a boon. At worst it's going to be a spiffy rollout for tinkerers. At best it gets one big hurdle out of the
    way that has stopped a subset of console only gamers from trying PC games.

    So...

    Will PS4 consoles be readily available at launch? Pre-orders sold out months ago. Or is Sony going to under-produce these consoles just like they do every time a new one is released to create the false demand frenzy???
    My post count just got bigger.

    They have enough stock for everybody around the world, only matter is IF the retailer have enough stock like Wal Mart or anything, so you have to be ready on the launch night or at least front of the line to get it.

    Arkham Asylum was great

    Arkham City was outstanding

    Arkham Origins...I have lost all interest in the game and have no interest in seeing any more of it and I have only played it for just over an hour

    it's not "bad"..it's "meh"

    I found there is lots to do but nothing you actually want to do and unlike Arkham City where exploring the city was actually fun while you made your way from one mission to the other, in this one the city just gets in your way. On foot Batman walks painfully slow, I mean it is like he filled his boots with wet cement before he went out and then tied heavy weights to his ankles just to be sure. Gliding doesn't control as well, exact same controls but they just seem more clunky and there is a LOT less stuff for the grapple hook to grapple onto. I spent most of the time running (slowly) on the floor because I couldn't find anywhere to grapple to get me on the rooftops or into the air for some gliding.

    As for the combat, again the buttons are the same, but whereas in the last 2 games I could get very high combos, taking out large groups of ppl in one fluid combo using all sorts of attacks, counters and gadgets at my disposal, now he seems to have difficulty attacking the person two feet in front of him. Oh and if you do get a combo going and you see that little blue wiggly line telling you to press counter...most of the time he doesn't. Even if you press the button the moment you see it the chances are you are going to get hit (even higher chance if it is a guy with a knife)

    And as for that new crime scene thing (which is not really new as it is basically the exact same thing from City when you were looking for Hush and Deadshot), that is basically look at the clearly marked area of the screen and hold down the button until your done, then move onto the next clearly marked area of the crime scene (which may involve rewinding a replay of the crime to see where something has landed) then you hunt down the culprit (the location of which is marked on your map) and you solve the crime...with not a single sense of doing any actual detective work

    Played Arkham for a while last night - I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I love seeing "Arkham City" as it was when it was still Gotham. I keep getting distracted from the main plot going off to explore.
