Third! Earthbound, Mario Kart and Donkey Kong Country were second.

Folks are trying to Kickstart a Commodore 64 platform for retro gaming.

That little handheld C64 looks kinda neat really.

Thanks EA, you're really considerate.  I almost bought the expansion to Star Wars Battlefront as an impulse buy, even though I don't play the game that much and have plenty of other games to play at the moment.  But you're piece of shit Origin app won't let me add the game to my cart, something I've absolutely never experienced with Steam. 

So thanks again EA, I would have wasted more money on your products if you weren't there looking out for me.

I don't think many people even still play that game.

Anyone else try game streaming your PS4 to your PC yet? Did it once and it was pretty easy to do. Hardest part was finding the USB cable for my controller (it ended up being packed in my wife's purse because she thought it was for my phone charger). Since we only have one TV right now, it's nice to be able to play without hogging it.

Gave it a try and was a bit underwhelmed. My PC and PS4 both sit a couple of feet from the router and I still got some rather significant lag spikes from the PS4.

The new Call of Duty sounds great!

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Might Be A Procedurally-Generated Escherian Nightmare

Activision tend to announce each year’s Call of Duty in late April or early May, so we should be expecting the teaser trailer for the announcement for the teaser trailer for the ARG for the announcement any day now. The big surprise of 2016’s game may have been slightly ruined, as folks including that Kotaku mob saw a mysterious entry for Call of Duty: Infinite War pop up in the PlayStation Store today. It’s Infinity Ward’s turn for CoD again, so yeah, maybe that’s it. But that’s only a name, not very exciting. Only RPS can tell you what it actually factually definitely truly is. Exclusive details follow.


It is, in a word, infinite. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare takes criticisms of the series’s ‘corridor’ campaign level design and embraces them, runs with them, produces beautiful endless babies with them. Infinite Warfare has one single procedurally-generated level, one single corridor, an impossible space which twists and turns and loops back on itself in new and terrifying ways.

Fight your way to a door, wait for your AI buddy to open it, and… you’re back where you were, only the floor is now a wall? Or you’re in another country. Another war. Another century. You’re the villain you shot ten minutes ago, fighting against your own movements repeated back to you. You’re six inches tall, desperately seeking cover amongst tin cans and wishing you hadn’t crushed them underfoot six hours ago. Thirty minutes is spent looping the exact same stretch. You’re running along the microscopic grooves of your own knife blade, able to see yourself holding it. You’re following yourself, having to dodge your own bullets to hit enemies beyond.

As time wears on, as the possibilities are exhausted, the procedural algorithm seems to break down. You’re trapped in a hall of mirrors reflecting different realities. Glitched-out chunks of a New York alley in 1986 become a jumping puzzle. The ice caps melt and stretches are flooded. The earth is baked. Cities crumble to dust. The stars loom bigger in the sky. They descend. They collide. Creation rips itself apart. You face the very final boss: the heat death of the universe.

Subsequent universes will be sold in a DLC season pass, which seems a bit cheeky consider the name ‘Infinite Warfare’.

That sounds great. I love the simple gameplay loop of COD games. It'll be nice to very the environment up.

That sounds nice.  I love the simple forum loop of infinite forum loops.  Plus I bet if we spammed a bunch of loops Grug's head would as-plode.

Yeah, RPS was yanking your chain. The CoD trailer just hit and it's less CoD and more Mass Effect in setting. "Infinite" as in set in space.

Oh, and there's a remastered version of the first CoD: Modern Warfare game bundled with a lot of versions.

Blech. I want to infinitely stab whoever butchered Bowie's Space Oddity in the trailer.

Modern Warfare Remastered looks pretty good. It's not just higher resolution, it looks completely re done. I hope they do the exact same thing with the multiplayer. I spent probably a thousand hours with that game when it came out and I'd love to play it again.

As for the Infinite Warfare game I can't really tell if it's going to be anything fun or not. If it's just the same old shit in space it's a big old meh from me.
