Well, I don't have X Box Live Gold. In fact, I can't even go online with my 360 at all unless I bring it downstairs and plug it straight into the modem. I dunno, this shit looks fucking hard. I anticipate some yelling.

I didn't buy Duke Nukem or Shadow Warrior. FTL: Faster Than Light is 50% off. Bought that immediately.

How I got Assassin's Creed IV for free today and why I waited in line for five hours in the freezing cold.

The best part is, I got the last copy in the store and possibly the city.

Shit, I didn't hear about this. Says it's on again Monday, but I doubt they'd have anything left... I also own all those games already, so... hm.

Not sure of the best place to ask this but are there any NG groups on Steam at all??

I'm in the mood for playing some Garry's Mod games or Civ V games online but feel as though they would be a lot more fun when you're in a group of people that you sort of know!

Finding myself playing PC games a lot more now but I feel as though I need to get into a group and play with others to make them even more enjoyable!

There is a Newgrounds group here on Steam.

We probably should but if you go the group you can add people from the group and play with them. I know Asandir, Jester, and Mike are in the group. As a side note Mike owns a bunch of games, 142 not counting DLC.

A VG related group sounds good. Haven't gone into any other forums on here in years. Just stick here in the VG thread.

Counting down the days until PS4 launch while hammering GTA Online. Level 51 right now and I've got the $400K apartment and all but one of the cars that I wanted to get, pretty much just playing for the sake of it now.

I've got about 50 PS3 games on disc and I must have well over 50 PSN and PS3 games from off the store. PlayStation Plus literally throws games at you. It's bad enough having one pile of shame :(

So in like a matter of minutes I'm suddenly leaning towards a PS4... this means I wait. And fuck that sucks because I like having new shit. Oh well, I guess it just means I'll be making a more thoughtful decision. I wish it wasn't so hard to decide, this is going to take some time...

What are your reasons for considering an XB1 anyway?

Mostly friends. Like the three friends I play with most and talk to on XBL are all more interested in the XONE. The friend I play with all the time is getting one for sure. Also I already have more than a year of XBL Gold, but I don't have PS+, so that's an extra $60 I would have to spend. Then there's Titanfall, Fable, and potentially Halo (not sure how I feel about the series atm). The controller is something I prefer much more over the Dualshock 4. I'm more accustomed to it and from what I've heard the XONE controller is amazing. Dualshock just doesn't feel right to me, and D4 looks terrible IMO.

One thing I'm not sure of, but think I saw is that I can't take advantage of the deal where you trade in current gen games for the next gen version for $10 because you can only upgrade X360 - XONE, and PS3 - PS4. Not sure on that one though.

This really isnt something you can comment on since they're both redesigns. I much prefer the 360 controller over the dualshock but since they were announced I've been confident that the D4 will feel amazing. I've heard people call it literally the greatest controller ever made. Here's an example.

The Wii Classic Controller Pro is my current favorite controller and it looks fairly similar in how it's spaced out. Looks awesome imo.

I really hate the shape of it though. That hasn't changed. It doesn't fit my hand like an Xbox controller does. The joysticks being horizontally aligned doesn't feel right with my brain either. I'm sure both controllers will be great, it just comes down to my personally preference in shape and layout. Haptic triggers is going to be pretty cool too.

Waiting until both consoles have been out for a little while is a good idea. I'll try out the controllers in a store at some point, see reviews on the consoles, and hopefully see some game announcements in December. Is that when the VGAs are? I'm sure we'll see stuff then.

I plan on doing the same. £400 or so is a bit much to be spending on a console when I can't even decide which one to get. With my birthday being in February I might just wait until around then to have a more in-depth look at picking one up.

Kind of funny, but you know it probably has to do with the fact the XONE isn't out til next week and the PS4 is coming in a few days.

I'm in the UK and Xbone and PS4 launch on the 22nd and 29th. I guess you lot will make for good guinea pigs to iron out any early flaws before we get ours. Microsoft have basically been dicks and the shop guys say Sony have been nothing but helpful to them. They even promised extra consoles whereas Microsoft have done diddly squat. Serves them right if Xbone flops.

It has though, everything is spaced wider and the grips are longer and straighter. Have you ever used a classic controller pro? The sticks being smaller and farther apart makes an immense difference. The actual placement of the sticks doesn't seem to matter, just the size and distance from eachother. I'm sure you'll see what I mean whenever you get to try a D4 (or a classic pro).

Waiting until both consoles have been out for a little while is a good idea.

I'm waiting a few years if I ever get them at all. Too much money for what you get and I've missed loads this generation anyway. Part of me would be tempted to splurge if I had the money though, considering there wont be another big console launch for at least 10 years, if there even is another.

Team Fortress 2. I'm pretty sure it's still playable with a terrible PC.

Also, I thought you could download GTA I & II for free on Rockstar's website.

Yeah, I'll have to see for myself how the D4 feels.
