    The only good thing about the UA ports are the DLC characters being added back in. Otherwise they are terrible.

    I too am pumped for Bulletstorm, if only because I look forward to setting some good leaderboard scores again, and then having them demolished 4 mins later.

    Also @Jefe414 are you playing playing Star Trek Online, or just dabbling? If so, are you in a fleet/what fleet/faction?

    Hmm....suck it, everyone who said they'd lose interest and stop before they hit 200 titles. You know who you are.

    I've mentioned in the past thread, but the Major Nelson podcast pointed something interested: the backwards compatibility studio within Microsoft is, literally, the most active publisher in the world today by numbers of titles thanks to their particular mission.

    The amount of negotiation and deal-making involved is still kind of mind-boggling.

    Still waiting on a bunch of SEGA/Sonic games I own: Unleashed, Generations, All-Stars Racing, and Ultimate Genesis Collection. I'd just play them on my 360, had it not died. Now I'm forced to consider getting them for the PS3 my brother-in-law gave us instead.

    Metal Gear Rising, Bionic Commando, and Bionic Commando Rearmed would be nice, too.

    Still trying to find out if native streaming is allowed for Mega Man 9 and 10.

    The fact that King of Fighters XIII hasn't made it yet saddens me--but KOF2002UM getting brought over is promising.

    Of course, SNK-Playmore made XIV a console exclusive. For a game whose survival outside the United States is almost entirely dependent on arcades--and is vastly more popular outside the United States--this was kind of like cutting off one's nose to spite one's face. I really hope that same brand of insanity isn't keeping XIII from being adapted.

    i think both BC and remasters have their place. ideally we'd be able to get both so that those that bought a game the first time around don't need to by an updated version if they don't want. at the very least, making the newer version available for free(or at least discounted) to those that already own the game is always a good move. the Bioshock games on Steam, as well as Bastion, Limbo and Castle Crashers on Xbox all went that route, at least for a limited period.

    but ultimately, giving people more choice in how they are able to purchase and play a game is always going to be a winner. and hey, maybe someone will even buy the game twice! hell, less than 30 minutes ago i finished up playing Firewatch on the Xbone, after having played it months ago on PC. and despite owning it twice already it's still on my GOG.com wishlist. i missed out on Sleeping Dogs when it first hit, but after getting it free on 360 and loving it, i bought the remaster on Xbone. it doesn't have to be either/or.

    I get that, but then these remasters probably aren't meant for you. It's for people new to the game or hardcore fans of the original that might want to replay it for the achievements or own what "should be" a better version.

    Also, there's no reason for us to believe that a game that's been remastered will never become BC. We've got Halo Wars, Bioshock 1 and 2, and Gears of War on the BC list and they all have their own remasters. Hold out for it or keep your old system.

    Speaking of BC, I'm really enjoying AC Rogue. I think I was pretty completely burned out on the series by the time I bought this one, which also made me skip Unity and Syndicate. I like the mashing together of 4's pirate gameplay and Brotherhood's OCD property expansion. I will say it seems undertuned. I'm on sequence 4 or 5 and have about 30 weapons, including several different ways to make people go unconscious or become berserk. The only resource limitation that matters is the materials to make your ship stronger, money and fleet resources are stupid easy to build to silly levels.

    Speaking of silly, the Assassins start coming after you like they're stacked in clown cars the moment the twist comes. In one mission, 5 consecutive bushes had assassins lurking in them. I shot each one sequentially with my pistol, which bothered the next in line to be shot not at all.

    Speaking of remasters, I really should pick up that one for the first Darksiders. I'd love to play through that again. Just a damn solid notZelda game.

    Also is War for Cybertron being remastered? That was some of the most fun multiplayer I've ever played.

    think it's called the Warmaster Edition, or something like that anyway. came out a few months back. was surprised when they announced since the second game had already gotten a remaster. didn't think they'd go back and do the first after that.

    THQnordic is gonna get its monies worth, dammit. Wonder if we'll see a Darksiders 3. (Watch it be a co-op character action game starring Fury and Strife that takes place during Darksiders 1 instead of following up on that badass ending.)

    It's worth noting that there have been a few cases where a remastered game also comes out as BC. Castle Crashers was the first, but the BioShock games are there too. It's not common but it happens.

    My BC wish list it's still pretty large, but it's been getting filled out very nicely. Vanquish and Dragons Dogma would give me palpitations.

    Pit People is on sale, people should try this game. It even has a trial.

    I am very excited that this year we're setting some great PC games come across to the console space. Path of Exile, Cities: Sky lines and Aven Colony.

    Syndicate is legit good. I hated Unity with the fire of a thousand suns.

    Unity wasn't the worst ever but it wasn't especially good either. The co-op was the best aspect, plus the inside to outside traversal system. It was buggy as hell tho. Syndicate was more fun but a looooot easier than most AC games. They made combat kinda trivial unless you ran into someone higher level than you.

    I just want them to do a spiritual successor to AssBro, easily my favorite as far as mechanics, story and combat.

    Literally nothing happens with the modern day story in Unity.

    Two sentence plot summary:
    You enter the not-Animus to try and track down the final resting place of a sage so Abstergo can't recover the body first.

    Turns out the body is completely decomposed and worthless and the entire game was a waste of time.

    I bought a XB1 recently and I have a question. I have a pretty good headset but it's not compatible with XB1. However, I heard there's a workaround using the XBox app on Windows and I wanted to know if that's true and how do I go about using it?

    I've not heard about it, but it might be referring to how you can join parties with the windows 10 app, so you could join a party and chat with the people in it via your computer. Or you could do the app's Game Streaming to run the whole experience through your computer, but that'll add a delay to the experience (due to sending video and audio over the network taking much longer than via an HDMI cable).

    Alright, I see why STEEP didn't really catch on. It's almost good, but it seems like they don't quite understand why extreme sports games are fun.

    The music is not that great. Every skater/snowboard/whatever game always has a kickass soundtrack, because you're doing the same shit over and over, so that soundtrack keeps you entranced. This has decent music, but it's all very generic. Also, whenever you change places or restart a run it resets/fades the music, which doesn't work.

    They made the snowboarding more realistic, which isn't inherently bad, but in obnoxious ways, like... I can get my boarder stuck in deep powder on a flat spot and it's a pain to get out again. Also, the game is a little too punishing for when you bust your head on something or try to insert too many rotations into a sweet jump. You don't feel awesome enough doing tricks.

    The exploration part of the game seems neat, but it also means sometimes you're stuck trying to bunny hop your board up a mountain to get into range to scout a new drop site. That's not that fun.

    And lastly the game is kind of buggy. I've only played a few hours and already gotten stuck on geometry twice.

    It's definitely not a bad game, but compared to SSX it just doesn't hold up.

    What is this I don't even.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that your character is the most obnoxious of bros (if male), and the atrocious ad placement. Like, pounding a redbull before the start of your first tournament.
