Thank you! Downloaded and ready to go for my trip to work tomorrow!

Good to see Tony is on too!

I love the lengthier shows! AND Tony's on too? Great way to start off the day!

Hi guys. Good show. Not getting an XBox One at all. Waiting a few months to get the PS4. Just need one thing, announce Fallout 4 and I'm in! As far as gaming this year, the only top thing coming out is Gran Turismo 6, South Park is delayed until next year...

Only 2:05? I demand a refund!

Good show guys! But where did you get this Tony guy from?! What a fanboy.

Stay sharp!

Great show, as usual... and great to have Tony in the show. He should pop-in more often :)

Love having a 3rd person there.Tony's feedback on the Xbone was great to hear and it just confirmed all my suspicions

I've got a refund for BF4 from EA so I don't need to explain more on that matter.

Played some of Contrast and I gotta say that the game is darn lifeless and the puzzles felt like a chore.very mediocre ! 

Also Dear old Lorin ! Why didn't you just buy AC IV from GMG then added a shortcut to Steam ? 

I did this with Witcher 2 from GOG and it worked like a charm. You will get the steam overlay just like any other " Steam " game and will be able to upload them as well.

Brent have you had any problems with Lego Marvel? Jon and I have had some issues including, a few crashes, one freeze, multiple missing animation displays on some heroes, funky camera glitches, and a few other little mishaps. Dont get me wrong, this game is hellah fun, and we love it, but I would advise you to save whenever you can to avoid some frustration.
Comment by Viking Brent on November 26, 2013 at 10:34pm

@Lindsay Carter: No, I can't say I've experienced anything along those lines except a few camera glitches. We just finished up the trip to Asgard so perhaps these issues pop up later? The one issue I can think of right now is after the fight with Hulkbuster Iron Man when trying to focus the laser to pop open the armor, it took multiple tries and ridiculously precise aiming to finally get the beam on target.

That felt a little glitchy.

I bought both systems and I am very satisfied with them, I do agree with Tony on the Xbone's UI, it's hard to find stuff. For some odd reason you can't check how much space is left on the hard drive and can't locate game saves. On PS4, I got AC IV and on Xbone I got Dead Rising 3 and Ryse; surprisingly out of them I really enjoyed Ryse the most and AC IV the least. I might be in the minority on this, but I really hated the naval battles. They felt like a chore to me and if you don't battle other ships for materials to upgrade the Jackdaw, later mission are almost impossible. I was left a little disappointed with AC IV.

I didn't finish DR 3 yet, but finished Ryse and loved the story. Brent, you should maybe rent it and check it out, if you like the movie Gladiator I think you'll enjoy Ryse. The combat is very repetitive, but for some reason I still enjoyed it.
