    This system looks totally decent on an HD television if you use a component cable. There are quite a few games that run at 720p too.

    I never played the Trespasser DLC for DA: Inquisition. Figured it was time. I got to admit, though, I'm almost wishing that I had just used a 3-year-old save instead of starting a fresh play through. Game is just a bit long, especially since I've already finished it twice. Even with some of the trials enabled to make enemies tougher, it occasionally feels like a bit of a slog.

    re: PS3, you can play PS1 games on them all but 1 or 2 versions (first 1-2 versions you could play PS2 on them)

    Seems like they still haven't figured out how to solve the problems with it yet. Mostly motion sickness from various genres that are popular now. They need to change games from the ground up but they can't do that when so few people have VR yet. So things have stalled a bit. The new consoles coming out should help with framerates, apparently you need ~90fps to not feel sick.

    Never expected there to be a QUBE sequel. It was a good game but I figured it went under the radar. This one looks interesting. PC, PS4, X1.

    Hotline Miami 2

    Played it a bit when it first came out. Gave up about four levels in. Started it up again. Now I know why I gave up. These levels are stupid big, and doesn't really lend itself to the tight formula that made up the first game. Every level, you are relying on the "long view", and creeping around, just praying that some random enemy you couldn't see, doesn't sneak up on you.

    It's still fun though, all in all. The soundtrack kicks all sorts of ass, the story is fun, and the gameplay mostly holds up. It's the almost too ambitious level design, and cheap as fuck deaths, that really hurt it. It's a game that wanted to evolve, without evolving in the appropriate areas, if that makes any sense. It wanted to make everything bigger and better, but the overall retro design didn't accommodate it too well.

    It's amazing how far Peter Molyneux has fallen.

    Started Agents of Mayhem today on Xbox

    Been a good bit of fun so far, I like the idea of having different super heroes with strengths and weaknesses to swap between

    Seems like a game that would have taken full advantage of co op shame it doesn't offer it

    Shenmue 3 made an appearance at Gamescon this year, with a trailer and some interviews and info from Yu Suzuki.



    Famitso interview translation:

    - Deep Silver will publish the game internationally.
    - Character models in trailer are unfinished.
    - Able to aim higher due to support from Deep Silver, but results in delays
    - Lots of tidbits about mini-games, QTEs and other small things.
    - Game is still in early development but in full production
