On your PSN friends list it shows you what that friend is doing. Like what game they are playing, if their on Netflix or Youtube or Amazon streaming, if their just sitting on the dashboard not doing anything right now, etc.

The only Darksiders II one I don't care for is "User is navigating menus". But when your fighting it says "User is being badass at this place"

Well you can compare trophies. For this game and most games it will reflect how far you are into a game compared to someone else.

I got kicked out of a MW3 clan today for the following reason...."You aren't online nor playing enough"

God forbid I do other things or play different games. :lol:

Just counted all the games I have but haven't even started yet. 23. I have 23 games I've never even started. 28 if you consider stuff like the Metroid Prime trilogy Wii game as 3 games. I look at all the games and nothing is screaming out at me. I can think of other games I don't own that I would rather buy and play then these just because I'm more in the mood. There aren't any games that I plan to buy day one until Assassins Creed 3 so I have some time to make this pile smaller.

I bet the devs are just going to love that. :lol:

Poor bastards can't even push the "mandated" 720p on current consoles much of the time, much less 1080p.

Was just looking at footage of Injustice: Gods Among Us.. meh.
Why do developers keep trying to make fighting games with DC Comics characters? They never make any sense whatsoever.
Superman vs Catwoman in a one-on -one fight... yeah, that seems fair.
Resources could probably be better spent on a new action-adventure game with someone other than Batman. Give me a proper Superman or Green Lantern game. Hell, a full-on Justice League game would be amazing if done in the same style as Arkham City.
But instead we get a stiff-as-hell Mortal Kombat-clone with bland, empty-looking environments and awful character re-designs.
Blaaaaahhhhhhh.
I'm a huge fan of DC's classic characters, and I literally have almost no desire to play this game whatsoever.

Aside from that though, Dishonored looks pretty damn cool. I like the "blink" ability (short-range teleportation).
Seems like it'll be a lot of fun, and looks to be a pretty fresh take on stealth gameplay.

The MK VS DC could have been sweet but no they had to say you cant have the DC character having their heads ripped off or anything like that[and the combat was still broken]

Yeah, I'm definitely going to be playing Dishonored as a stealth game. It's kinda funny; no stealth games for ages (since Human Revolution) and then BAM - Hitman: Absolution and Dishonored are out. I love stealth games, shame they're so rare now.

Seems like they'll find some hokey excuse to make everyone fairly balanced. I mean in one of the trailers you see Batman punch Solomon Grundy so hard he flys into the air and through buildings.

I bought Dark Souls today. Good lord that game is tough. But definately appealing. I'm already getting that "ah...I'll just see what's around this corner..." urge and the loot lust is kicking in already at this very early stage. Seeing an item off in the distance just kicks this urge in me that I have to get it, even if I do have to fight through a crowd of enemies and jump across perilous gaps in leaps of faith. But like I said, it's really tough. I've already had a bad experience where I died, dropping about 5000 souls and on my way to get it back I died again, so I ended up losing them all. But I'm not pissed about it because I was the one who fucked up. I tried to rush it, and the game kicked my ass back as a result. But I like that. It's a game that commands your attention and respect and there's something really satisfying about killing enemies that were giving you a hard time. On top of it all it looks gorgeous with some hugely epic scale environments. So definately enjoying it so far and glad I made the jump to start playing it. Still trying to get used to the mechanics (doesn't help that the game just doesn't explain in-game terms like Kindling or Reverse Hollowing and leaves you to figure it out for yourself) but that will come in time.

Dark Souls is deffinitely a crazy experience. I got half way through and quit cause after awhile it gets daunting. I'll pick it back up eventually.
To be honest though I liked Demons Souls more. I liked the central hub and that feeling of safety. In Dark Souls you're fucked around every corner.

Yeah, been lookin forward to Dishonoured for a long time too. Injustice though, don't look at the story or owt like that. I'm lookin forward to it because they'll be OTT fights on a huge scale. THAT's what's drawn me in. Got nothing to do with Batman... Nothing at all.....

Hey now, Netherrealm is making the game. Why would they make an adventure game when they've got years of fighting game experience. To be fair they've actually been pretty good at making sure the continuity is correct and finally did you see the video where they show off environmental attacks? Superman throws cars, batman smashes people into em and catwoman jumps off them. The game has a lot of cool class specific ideas like that which make it seem worth trying especially considering the last mortal kombat was really good.

Granted, I figured you'd be unimpressed because you dislike MK.

Is this a bad time to say I stopped playing because the ease was boring me.
