Seriously. I've been hearing about this game for years already. GTA IV seems like a decade ago. I'm also surprised they're coming out with it now, seeing the new consoles have just been launched.

And thanks to recos on this board I played both Saints Row 2 and Saints Row 3, and never thought I'd say this but I enjoyed them more than GTA IV. Hope Rockstar spends less time on the cut scenes and cinematic effects, and more time on gameplay like San Andreas.

NCAA not renewing contract with EA Sports video games - ESPN

No more NCAA football in its current form after NCAA Football 2014.

Re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

I hope 2k picks it up, though it seems unlikely because the NCAA does not want to give any of the money they make from the game to the players. I honestly think 2k makes the best sports games and its not even close. ESPN NFL 2K5 was so much better than madden.

I never understood the big deal about NFL 2K5 myself.

I agree with him, I thought NFL 2K5 was a blast and I definitely preferred it over Madden but once EA got the contract I stuck with Madden. But still though, the last NFL game 2K made was 8 years ago, it's time to get over it.

Re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

Call me lazy, I haven't looked back over the thread, but did anyone end up playing The Last of Us? Its a PS3 exclusive and it came out in June and I don't remember reading anything about it here, but people say it's a masterpiece. All I've seen is perfect scores everywhere and Game of the Year nods along with GTA V (well, people are predicting it) and Bioshock Infinite.

I really went back and forth over buying NCAA 14 or The Last of Us, I chose NCAA simply because of it's replay value and it being able to hold me over til Madden is released.

I'm trying to wait for the price drop on TLOU since it came out first.

Re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

if you want you can watch the last of us on youtube, it's almost the same as playing it, since it's more or less an interactive story on rails.

it's not bad though.

NO ONE READS MY POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have made NO LESS then THREE, tres, tlātė, SAN, thre references to this GAME in THIS THREAD alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!............ .................What was the question?

That Guy has a point. For just the story you can watch on YouTube. However the game is also a lot of fun to play. Ironically enough it does survival horror better then Resident Evil. Numerous points of the game which are pretty creepy at the very least. And the chance to choose weather or not to get through parts with stealth or fighting is reminiscent of Metal Gear Solid.

Excellent opening sequence. The only better opening I've seen is God of War 3.

If you can find it in your heart to pay full price then I beg you if for nothing more then to support these types of games in the future. However at the very least I recommend buying it at some point. Even if it's used, I think it's easily good enough to justify playing it instead of watching it on YouTube.

Personally I haven't finished it yet but it's most likely going to end up as my choice for GOTY which currently stands as Bioshock Infinite.

Gotta admit I'm struggling to finish Infinite. Just got bored with it for some reason. I actually haven't been playing much of anything lately. Maybe just because its summer.

It's worth it. I personaly took my time with it myself. I got it on launch day and didn't finish it until early last month. The ending is a pleasantly surprising mind-f**k to say the least.
