It's like Kevadu said (I find myself agreeing with him a lot lately...wonder why?), this proves that we as consumers have a say. I still have no intention of buying an xbone, and as a matter of fact I may go ahead and trade in my xbob and remaining xbob games towards a ps4 or at least some ps3 stuff. But the fact that our bitching and complaining and pronounced display of disdain actually forced ms to respond positively shows that we as consumers are still more than a simple figure in their equations. I'm thrilled by this, literally amazed

It's a pretty big deal that MS reversed their position on this.  When they first announced their DRM scheme I saw a whole lot of comments saying things to the effect that you should get used to it, this is the future, Sony is going to do it too, etc.  Of course then Sony didn't do it and they became the heroes of the internet for a week.  MS was clearly under a lot of pressure from all the bad press and preorder numbers for the PS4 were trouncing the Xbox One so they had to fold.

Do you know what this means?  Consumers still have some voice.  We don't have to just lie down and take things.  The internet collectively told MS where to shove their DRM and they were forced to oblige.  This is a huge victory for consumers.
I want to scream this aloud from the rooftops of every building in every city everywhere.

What happened to the whole "camera and mic are on all the time even if you're not playing games?"  Did that go away?

No, Yoda is just wishing I think. Everything I have read indicates that the always on is truth. I don't need my Xbox seeing what I do in front of my TV and judging me.
It's not that it's always on but that it's always active. The system won't turn on without kinect hooked up, and therefore will not operate without it in use. Idk about halting its functions as currently the only way to turn it on is via voice command...

Daggerstrike...all of them are true.

I know they want to push HDMI for the Xbox One, but composite cables are still pretty high quality and there are a lot of people out there using them.

My TV doesn't have enough HDMI ports for all of my devices, so I still use composite as well as HDMI.  When I did the research back when I bought my TV, everything said that HDMI and composite produce equal quailty, and that whether one or the other looks better from a given device depends only on how optimized the device is for each output format. 
Um....you guys realize composite is BASIC yellow video-red/white two channel audio, right? I assume you all mean component and are just mistyping.

Though I don't think the Wii U has optical out either.

Seriously?  I guess I'm not getting a Wii U...
I'll save you time, it does not, though it does have an hdmi out.

I admit I have serious rage issues. You guys have seen a couple photos of me...I'm a big guy. I was always fat and going to a catholic elementary school was kinda like running a gauntlet of insults and ridicule...and later years physical abuse. I think I mentioned it here once but in fifth grade, my entire class took turns pounding on me while I was on the floor from some asshole pushing me from behind. After this, I lost my ability to control serious anger because I always fell back to that moment where literally I was helpless. Nowadays, I sort of got the hulk logic for anger control...I'm always kind of angry. I try to maintain a pleasant demeanor when talking to people or doing things I enjoy, but it really takes nothing to turn my mood foul. Stuff like weight lifting have really helped this year as when I get angry, I just put it all into my exercise and either pull something or go home tight from lifting that I forget why I was annoyed. But as you can see from posts where something like what happens to Jotacon occur and I respond with aggresive replies and violent logic....I won't lie I get pissed reading them. Shit like what happened to me as a kid....I get pissed seeing it and other types of bullying happen.

Long story short...I have issues.

The outputs are all different on the new model (and it's not like they switched to standard ports either...) because...why not...
It's probably a proprietary cable you have to buy afterwards. I know my xbob came with a composite cable with some RIDICULOUS fucking huge connection to the xbob, so maybe it's something similar in this case. Honestly, no system has ever come with anything above a standard composite cable set.

Why are the pages all stuck together?

Best line in the game.

You made the right move. You never know what psycho has a knife or a gun.
Including yourself....it's not fair to think only everyone else has the potential to be a fucking crazy person. Hombre spits on me, he'll need a cannon to stop me from what I do to him.

Quick edit: Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with being above violence and asshole-ishness, but no one would think ill of you for taking action in an aggressive manner on said individual. Kudos for maintaining a level head, if I had been there with you he would have had a whole new level of respect for anal sex...

Just beat it on normal mode.

I knew the ending and all already...but damn it's powerful. I'm shocked they took the route they did.

You are finished it already? Is it a short game or just one that you do not want to stop playing?
I got 18 hours in. Would have been less if I stopped pausing and walking away for a while. Also, I started vetting neurotic about fights and restarting every time I got attacked or broke stealth....really started getting bad when I broke an arrow due to a miss or a non fatal shot and restarted after 4 minutes of sneaking up on a baddie. You know it's bad when you have nearly full ammo for everything but one type of weapon and a room full of bodies...and you didn't use said empty weapon.

Playing new game plus now. Definitely cleaning up mistakes I made on the first run through...like the upside down trap thing. Did it on my first try this time...first run through took 9.

And you didn't beat the sheer piss out of him...because?

I'm no advocate for violence, but get aggressive and in my face and I now have an obligation to knock you the fuck out.

Also, @Daggerstrike She was definitely a whore, don't let her get you down bud.

I don't like badmouthing someone for doing a favor for me if they screw it up, but in a case where they are not sure of how to do said favor, they should just politely decline.
1605  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us on: June 17, 2013, 07:39:05 PM
If you find the game lame from the intro, you didn't see the opening all the way or just have no soul.
