I'm actually playing a ton of old games lately. Just finished Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge for the original Xbox. Not a bad game actually. What sucks is that I'm more so concentrating on finishing games and haven't been fully enjoying them. I really want to complete my backlog before new games come out that I can't resist. It's a losing battle.

TLOU will be a game that I can't not get for my PS4. I never had a PS3 so I haven't played it yet (don't spoil it for me!). Drive club looks cool, the division looks interesting but not amazing IMO. The new Rainbow Six had an awesome trailer and Far cry 4 will be another game that I won't be able to resist. I will buy Borderlands: The Pre Sequel and maybe the Witcher 3. Sadly, I will continue buying CoD games so Advanced Warfare will be a game that I will buy.

We could discuss E3 forever lol. It's a pretty good year for gaming.

I've come to the conclusion that we live in a golden age of video games right now.  There are SO many good games to play and just not enough time.  If something isn't like AMAZING, I'm just not going to get to it.  I'm probably not going to buy very much at this Summer Sale.

Seriously though, the last few weeks, the only games I've played are Hearthstone and SC2 Squadron Tower Defense.  Both of those are free.  lol

EDIT - Too many "seriously"s.

I'll buy almost any game if the price is right. Dead Rising 3 seems like more of a fun and carnage type of game. More geared towards fooling around and not so much story based (at least from what I've seen). It can be fun in multiplayer for sure though.

Free games are pretty good but I have an issue with the fact that they are mostly geared towards repetition and grinding to level up or get better items. Also, they can't be completed and since I'm a completionist, I don't play a ton of them. I do enjoy a good match of League of Legends once in a while though :P

Yeah there are too many good games and it seems so confusing and difficult when it comes to being in the know for upcoming games. E3 was awesome this year.

Grinding implies a repetitive activity that's not fun.  If you're having fun playing the actual game, the leveling/items is just gravy.  Also, competitive games give you an intrinsic reward (the satisfaction of besting your opponent), which is completely unrelated to the extrinsic rewards (levels, lootz, etc).

Yeah for sure. CoD is definitely a game I grind on. I hate the game(s) because they're so frustrating but I'm good enough at them to keep playing. I play to level up, get a good k/d and unlock all the camos. I keep buying them every year though. I'm stubborn in that way.

I do enjoy League in that I get to work with strangers as a team to beat another team. It's definitely a ton more team based and, as you said, there are definitely intrinsic rewards.

A main reason why I don't play free games is because I feel the need to make the most out of the money I've already spent on games. My backlog is huge and it feels like a waste to let those games go untouched. I find that the feeling of completing a game is about equally as compelling as beating people at a game.

Been playing it for a week. Just as buggy as BF4. It had some new and fun modes of play. It gets repetitive just as fast. For some reason choppers feel like they handle better, but it could be in my mind.
I wouldn't buy it at full price. I can wait.

It's a spin off Battlefield with new game modes and smaller maps. I kind of dig it since it's a different flavor, and can switch between the two. I know many will complain that this should have been a DLC, but factor in that it will come with just as many maps as a new game (approx 12). Would y'all have rather it been a new Premium instead?

EA is going down Activision's path. Have two delevopers work on the BF series and alternate between the two every year. I'll get it 'cause BF is my schiit, but personally I'm itching for Star Wars: Battlefront in 2015

You might look into the new HiFiMan cans coming out later this year.  MLE is very excited fro the HE-560...

I'll be getting the Q's back in a trade, but I def don't want them.
Hmm, but isn't the HE-560 going to be a lot of money? Anything beyond $500 (hell even $400 is my "pre"-limit) is kinda ridiculous.

Pretty much what I want. Something that's a neutral "reference" headphone but has a bit of bass to it. Kinda like the Audeze LCD-2, but just with qualities akin to that of the AKG's.

 

Aside - IEM's hit the marks when it comes to portability and being able to listen to in public/working out, but can they match/near match the performance of my AKG k702 annies? I even considered the HE-500's. I prefer a neutral headphone that has great bass extension and some oomph to it as far as music goes. For gaming, of course the soundstage, imaging, and clarity are going to be the biggest things.

Weird, I coulda sworn you mentioned $800 earlier... Sorry can't help with suggestions as I've never tried anything in the $400-500 range.

Out of curiosity, are there any console gamers out here who use SCUF controllers? In your opinion are they worth the money?

Nah, I just said it debuted at $800.
