anyone 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.

I absolutely cannot get enough of it. I'm studying to become a geography major and history minor in University so it is really up my ally in terms of video games that are not sport-related.

I only played GTA V for a few hours on Friday night so I'd have to play it more to be sure but I think it's definitely up there for GOTY.

I have never been a huge fan of GTA games, but GTA V is loads of fun. I was never able to get in to the GTA IV campaign and only played it for the multiplayer, but GTA V's campaign is by far the best one of the series. Multiplayer will be even better.

Picked up Beyond: Two Souls on Tuesday. Very interesting game, similar in style and gameplay to Heavy Rain but a better storyline, IMO. Even though it is a bit harder to follow... The graphics are incredible and the main character is played Ellen Page. She does a really good job, too. Willem Dafoe is also in it.

Much like Heavy Rain, it is a very cinematic and visual game. If you liked Heavy Rain, I think you'll like this game.

I've been hearing such mixed reactions on this game. A good portion say it's great while a bigger portion say it's bad.

Yeah, the reviews have been decidedly mixed. Much like Heavy Rain, which got rave reviews by some and horrible ones by others. If you played Heavy Rain and enjoyed it, though, I'm positive you'll enjoy Beyond: Two Souls.

Nope, I'm picking up the Xbone next week. The PS4's launch lineup is awful and XBox live has always been the superior destination for multiplayer gaming.
I'll probably get the PS4 sometime next summer though, I don't want to miss out on any great games this gen.

A lot of launch games for both consoles were pushed back. Aside from Forza 5 and Ryse, what other exclusives are there worth mentioning? And PS4 did get Killzone but the list of launch titles for both consoles are far from impressive.

Hard to compare free online to paying for it, though. But Playstation Network has come a long way recently. Now that users have to pay to use PSN, that should only lead to more improvements and a better experience.

There are so many good games on the horizon. 2014 is going to be an exciting year for console games.

Oh having to pay for PSN should do wonders for it for sure. And you're right, 2014 is going to be crazy. Can't wait.

How is your XB1 working Duckman? Heard alot of them are broken but lots of that could be made up fallout from the system wars.
Its okay if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.
