Quote from: Sir Blue and Gold on June 13, 2013, 03:54:52 PMThe effort by Microsoft is a good one. The system should be more than just games... at least from my perspective. I have a high-end PC for gaming only and I probably wouldn't want to go over to console for "just a gaming experience". A system that improves TV and let's me keep up with my sports and fantasy teams on one UI is cool though, plus having the ability to couch game.. not bad - I'm interested.I'll end up with both eventually.. but I agree with you... Sony brought it in E3. I've always liked Sony's systems better than Microsoft's.

People need to realize that where they like it or not, what Microsoft is doing is the future. It's essentially steam on console. Who isn't always connected to the internet? I know I am, so are all of the people using the internet to complain about it. Plus for almost all of the exclusives Microsoft announced like Titanfall and Forza require constant use of the cloud. And the used game nonsense? Yeah you can trade in used games, as stated by microsoft. It's up to the publishers if they want to opt out of that feature, just like what Sony is doing. http://ca.ign.com/articles/2013/06/06/microsoft-details-xbox-one-used-games-always-online

Quote from: Jets on June 17, 2013, 08:31:54 PManyone here play civ V? I hadn't previously, but the other day I saw it on steam with all the expansions for 49 bucks. Couldn't pass up the chance to try it out, so far it's very good. Will likely tide me over until NHL 14/GTA this fall.

Quote from: Thom77 on August 01, 2013, 11:42:00 PMNOt two weeks ago I DL'd Half-Life 2 from Steam - all the espisodes etc., for $6.49. On the Mac too - and while I waited for it to load, I recalled all the hours spent on HL and HL2...the mood, story line and the sheer terror that it provided. I wondered...will it be the same?Um, yeah. Hell yeah! Just made it through the Sandlots (with all the chomping, flying antlions) and I'm in LOVE with gaming once again. I know - PS and the X offer a ton...but for me, it's back to PC games of long ago...and a few hundred hours ahead to "waste" on this title. Shotgun, locked and loaded.I have never played Civ anything but it seems I am missing something.To Steam...
Quote from: Duckman118 on August 26, 2013, 10:02:16 PMAnyone here play Payday 2 on steam? I recently downloaded it and it is a blast when playing coop with some buds. Although the game has a real optimization issue. It runs terribly on AMD cards, and there is very little graphical options while the options that are there do very little.
