    Been disappointed in the selection since I got my PS4, but it's finally looking up. Lot of good games on the horizon.

    Assassin's Creed Syndicate - Oct 23
    Need for Speed (always been one of my favs) - Nov 3
    Call of Duty: Black Ops III (losing it's luster) - Nov 6
    Fallout 4 - Nov 10
    Star Wars Battlefront (very excited for this one) - Nov 17
    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege - Dec 1

    I don't like to be working on more than 1 game at a time, so I'm kind of up in the air between Need for Speed and Battlefront. Also, FWIW, there's an Oregon Trail game coming out in a couple days 10/20. Obviously not a good as the original, but if you're into nostalgia, there ya go.

    Was the beta, multiplayer? If so, what did you like/dislike?

    Yea it was multiplayer. I played a mode that reminded me of domination on call of duty. You had a point to capture then you had to protect it.

    Only thing I didnt like about it too much was sometimes when you respawn it's right there by the other team so you will pretty much die instantly again

    Really looking forward to Fallout 4. Nobody will be seeing me for awhile when that comes out.

    I'd like to see a firm date on the next FF as well.

    Me too ... best game I've ever played. COD world at war is close, though.

    So I'm finally thinking about moving to next gen. What's the consensus Xbox one or ps4? I have a xbox360. I've looked up all the differences, read that graphics are better on ps4 but we are talking about being able to see an extra blade of grass. Also heard Xbox has an update coming where you can play your 360 games.

    I know ps4 has some exclusives but heard this holiday season Xbox is rolling theirs out..namely of my interest, tomb raider.

    Also, regardless all the tom Clancy games look awesome. Rainbow six, the division, and ghost recon wildlands.

    Also want to play the new metal gear.

    Still on my 360. Rarely play it but I have a boatload of games on my backlog. Will be building a gaming PC in a few months. Hopefully by that point Fallout 4 isn't a buggy mess. Fvck Ubisoft for ruining AC that had so much potential.

    The only game that matters is Fallout 4. Everything else is just fluff.

    I don't have either, but nephew (who is in his 20's) has the Xbox One and it seems pretty cool. I've always been a Playstation guy, but his Xbox seems like it can do a lot more as an entertainment system.

    Voice activated to turn on/off, run different apps/programs, watch TV through the Xbox (hooked up to your cable box), etc. Seems like some cool stuff, whereas the PS4 just does PS4 stuff I believe.

    They went from a series that had a lot of potential early to the same cookie cutter garbage of late (although I thought Black Flag was a solid entry). Same bland story, way too many collect a item icons everywhere to "beef" up the story and uninspiring combat/main characters. Making the series a yearly entry back after Brotherhood put it on this path.

    I tend to agree but I look past it because I love the seek and find stuff and the series is one of my favorites. I thought black flag and unity were the 2 best of the last bunch, though I also really like the Conner story and the tie in to all the American history. Whoever thought that Rouge was a good game idea should be fired.

    Before I bought the Xbox one I was with you as far as caring about the graphics. But have to say the difference between the one and 360 is mind blowing. I have had a few friends come by my house asking me what movie I was watching while playing not believing when I told them this is the new Xbox.

    Not sure if it is 100 percent true but also heard the ps4 graphics are better then the one but again not completely sure.

    I'm pretty pumped for CoD, Battlefront and Rainbow Six. @jarms24 - get rid of the PS4 and grab an xbox one! I plan on spending a good amount of time on CoD and Battlefront.

    The graphics on the PS4 are insane. I have been re-playing Watch Dogs on my 360 the last few days and man is it different.

    I really think it all comes down to what exclusive titles you would rather play.

    I rep Nintendo and the Wii U the hardest still for that reason. But I recently picked up a Bone in anticipation of Halo. My brothers and I have been running that series online for years.

    I'm probably not going to guy Next Gen until the next Elder Scrolls is announced. When it gets announced I'll probably start Fallout and play that until Elder Scrolls comes out. ES is pretty much the only thing I care about.

    The new Rainbow Six looks pretty sick, plan on getting it. Unity may have ruined AC for me and COD has gotten stale.

    COD has gone too futuristic. It's dead to me until they bring back WWII or Vietnam.

    I'm a survival horror guy. Alien isolation was an amazing game. I almost decided on ps4 because they are exclusive with Until Dawn

    It's been the same f***ing game for like 10 years. I'm so done with COD lol.


    Until Dawn was AMAZING (played it on a friend's PS4), but it has absolutely no replay value whatsoever. None.

    XBOX One is going to be backwards compatible so you will be able to play many of the games from your XBOX 360 on your XBOX One.

    Titanfall came out and they decided to make every game like that. It's so dumb. Black ops was one of my favorite games of last gen. I had about a year of solid fun on it with other people. Black Ops2 was meh (still play it from time to time) and the other ones have blown.

    Black Ops 3 for me. I really enjoyed the Beta.

    Battlefront looks cool but I think Dice games feel like shit.

    The rest don't interest me at all.

    Agreed, i also think they give you way too many options now. COD 4 was an absolute blast and there were 3 kill streak rewards... now there are 400. Sometimes less is more.

    Yep, they got too fancy. Started making it easy for campers and it took away the fun for the more skilled players. I don't need 14 attachments for my rifle, or a heartbeat sensor. I would have to say that COD 4, World at War, and MW3 were the only installments I've enjoyed. I have Advanced Warfare and it's a pos.

    Camping was always easy. COD4 was no exception.

    Modern warfare 2 was my favorite game of the whole series. I also liked both black ops so I'm hoping even though this one is in the future, treyarch can make it a great game.

    I hated AC3 and Connor. Thought he was a horrid main character. Haytham was much better, and that is why I liked Rogue. He was right there with the main character the whole game. I didn't play all of Unity, but wasn't a huge fan of what I did play. I just wish they cared more about quality instead of $$$. That goes for the whole industry (every industry, I guess).

    You complain about campers but AW was anti-camp with the movement.

    but it was stupid with all the Halo jumping and attachments. Too futuristic. I like simple. Hell, give me some grenades and a rifle with iron sights and I'm good. I would prefer 3, 5, 7 rewards as well.

    I hear ya, different strokes. They have stretched this series out to make a ton of cash for sure. I do like the overall arc of the story connecting things to today. But I was thrilled when they killed of Desmond, I hated that dude.

    Anybody considering Need for Speed? I may pick it up when it drops. That series has always been one of my favorites.
