I registered on an Orthodox forum and the first thing I post is about games which I have a dozen plus forum subscriptions for discussing.
If true, I will rage...
Next PlayStation to lock out used games
Buckle up, Sony enthusiasts. A tipster has told Kotaku that the PlayStation 4 is named "Orbis," and that it will feature an anti-used game system, offer no backwards compatibility with PlayStation 3 titles, and ship in holiday 2013...
If true, it will sadly be that time to write Sony off completely. There was a period- around 2005- when I thought Sony could do no wrong. They've spent the last 7 years doing their level best to prove how mistaken I was.
I learned in 2005 how terrible Sony was... They destroyed one of the best games ever... But today Bioware has surpassed SWG with SWTOR and I'm enjoying TOR far more than I did SWG. Even with some idiots hating on it.
I'd recommend seeking some serious spiritual guidance for such apostasy. No MMORPG will ever surpass SWG, whether Pre-CU, CU, or NGE. SWTOR's a nice game, but it feels so...generic? There's nothing that stands out about it, compared to SWG whether you could actually live in the Star Wars universe, SWTOR only features rails, rails, and more rails. That's nice if you like developer hand-holding, but for players that enjoy freedom and choice (not the BioWare definition of "choice"), then it's sorely lacking. Of course, over the many, many MMORPGs that I've played, I've always preferred sandboxes to themeparks. Either way, I still have an active subscription. But, I digress.
I tend to rotate my gaming schedule from RTSs to RPGs to FPSs with MMO subscriptions thrown in the mix somewhere. I'm currently replaying for the umpteenth time Medieval 2 using the Invasio Barbarum II mod. Before that it was Empire and Shogun II. I might pick up Skyrim when the price drops, but we'll see.
