A lot of people in my GMC complained about the draft, too, but I guess it's just a matter of setting up your list. One of the biggest flaws in the game mode was the ability for someone to offer sheet TJ Brodie during the off-season during the same sim period that I had made a trade to clear cap space. Because the trade wouldn't execute until the end of the sim period, and because the end of the sim period was more than one week, and because I was 'currently' over cap, it wouldn't let me match the offer sheet, and I lost Brodie.

I got over the waiting times. After going in and out of the GMC hub I got used to it. I'm looking forward to playing it in 14...would you guys like a NHL 14 flames board league? If not, it doesn't really matter. There are going to be other leagues.

Last year I would have jumped at the chance, but I've found that with my new schedule my playing times are really inconsistent. I've just dropped out of a GM Connected league because I felt bad never being there to play my games and I knew it would be creating tension for the commissioner.

I thought about buying GTA IV on Steam with the DLC's, I think it was $15 or something? But I already have GTA IV on 360, just not the DLC's. I bought The Walking Dead 400 Days DLC, though.

I preordered one for sure, although Future Shop had some issues and I may have preordered two.

Eventually. I will be switching to the PS4 but I'm in no rush to do so yet. My 360 works perfectly right now and I don't have $400 to drop right now

Not gonna lie, I know nothing about the PS4 except it'll be better.

Can I play my PS3 games on it?

Neither system will be backwards compatible unfortunately, but there will apparently be a huge selection of ps3 games to download on ps4. And I've read rumors of possible cross platform online play between ps3 and 4. Not sure if its true or not

i think ps2 played ps1 games and ps3 played ps2 games, so I assume they will keep with that trend

Seeing as this is a kind of boring time in the calendar, and the conversation is on video gaming, I thought I'd share something I made last year. I found myself in my last semester of my degree, and I had the rare opportunity to actually enrol in an elective in something other than pure science. So I chose video game design.

Long story short, I made dis: Space Golf!

I'm told it's devilishly difficult, but given I tested each level about 1000000000000 times while making the damn thing, I can get through it pretty quickly.

I'm not sure if ps2 ever played ps1 but the first gen ps3 did play ps2, but it was taken out due to the problems it was giving the bluray drive I believe.. Ps4 will not have backwards compatibility due to it having a whole different system architecture.

I'm going to get excited for GTA V before I get too excited for the PS4.

Anybody even know anybody who's getting an Xbox One? Sounds like it might be a massive flop already.

I know for sure ps2 played ps1, I used my ps2 for ps1 games quite often, that was the only part i was 100% sure on since i got rid of my ps2 years before I got a ps3

Will likely get a PS4 once the inevitable colossal price tag drops and it's hacked. Very unlikely I get one before that what with the business practices of major game companies these days. I purchase games that I like and whose developers I want to support, but those are few and far between these days really.

The whole lack of backwards compatibility these days is pretty BS, but emulators tend to take care of that problem as things move along given that you have a decent PC.

A couple of my buddies are getting the "Xbone", both huge fanboys, although one said he plans on getting both. I think we're going to see a lot of the casual gamers go to ps4 while the fanboys will do what they do, I don't see Xbox winning this war, all the major sites have been doing polls and the ps4 is blowing the Xbone out of the water. Almost all my friends are 360 players, yet only 2 are staying with Xbox for the new gen, and that's saying something considering how much **** I caught for playing ps3.

On another note I advise everyone who uses Steam to get Dark Souls for 7.49(75% off) right now.

EXCELLENT game, it's not so great of a PC port, but if you have a controller you can use it works fine(plays exactly like the console versions). Make sure to get DSfix(google it) to fix blurriness caused by the game forcibly rendering in 720p.

Even if you don't have a gaming PC you should get Dark Souls. It's a bit unforgiving but once you get into it you can easily sink hundreds of hours into it. Make sure to get Prepare to Die edition which includes the DLC.

It's cheaper, has the better specs, and doesn't force a camera/microphone that may potentially be co-opted by the US government in the name of 'safety'.

No. Neither the PS4 or Xbox one have native backwards compatibility. But Sony is promising the ability to stream PS3 games to the system through Gaikai, which should be out sometime in 2014.

In any case, buying a new console at launch is rarely a good idea. Better to wait until they iron out the kinks and game library gets bigger.

So confusing...

They were doing preorders initially for $50 which I missed and then since the demand was so high it was full price of $400 and online only which is what I got, then preorders stopped cause of demand, and then Sony allocated more preorders again for $50. At this point I hadn't seen a charge on my card for $400, so I assumed I never got it and so i went and got one of the recently allocated preorders instore for sure at $50. After that I was informed that it wouldn't charge me for the other $400 until release. Then, I got an email saying some information might be incorrect on the $400 preorder, so I may have lost it. So it will be a crapshoot. As it stands right now I've only spent $50, but if I get a second PS4 I'll either sell it if the demand is high, or return it to future shop.
