What games from the PS2 era did you enjoy?

Hahaha If there were games I liked and one I'm even looking forward to, how does that translate to hating video games?

How come you can never answer a direct question?

What games did you like?
What tv shows did you like in the past?

You either completely ignore these questions or deflect them and no one understands why.

That doesn't mean I hate anything. Perhaps because of most of the games since have been nothing but sequels and sequels that weren't differentiated enough for me to feel like I'm playing anything new and excited. Strangely enough, some those games I mentioned that I liked on the PS2 were actually sequels of games on the PS1. At least the technological leap from the PS1 to PS2 was huge enough to bring interest alone in that regard.

Watch Dogs seems to be somewhat original at least and it does look beautiful graphically. All that's left is for it to be good.

Curious about nerdyboy's thoughts on Club Nintendo's game prices.

Well technically they are free. :P

I actually hardly register my games to Club Nintendo and even if I do, rarely do the post game surveys. I am so backlogged in my life that I hardly have time to play. When I do, the surveys are expired.

Looking at how many coins I have and the cost of the games, they do seem a bit on the high side. Then again, since I am so backed up, it's unlikely I'd spend it on a game. I've gotten a shirt and a couple of odds and ends from the Club for friends in the past, but not games.

If this were Japan or even Europe I might visit Club Nintendo more. The US offerings suck pretty bad compared to Japan. They have such cool offerings there.

I'm mainly concerned about the digital offerings, than the physical ones. The best physical reward in recent memory was the Luigi's Mansion statue. Besides, the cool stuff is saved for Platinum members. 8)

Looks like Microsoft has changed it's mind on the whole mandatory Kinect policy and will be offering X-Box One consoles that can operate without a Kinect for $100 less than the current model.

AND in a somewhat related story, Microsoft has also announced that they will stop requiring 360 and One owners to have a Gold subscription to access apps like Netflix and HBO Go.

Hmn. Not sure that is such a good idea.

Atari will be 'a hardware brand' again in the future, says CEO

Atari filed for bankruptcy in January 2013. In December that year, it received court approval to enact a three-year plan that would see it emerge from bankruptcy.

Now, five months later, Atari CEO Frederic Chesnais has told GamesBeat the plan is going well so far.

"Today, we have a company that is out of bankruptcy, and we are ten people working under the studio-production model," he said. "We pay attention to three things: the IP, the production, and the distribution."

Chesnais also explained his vision for the company going forward, stating that Atari is "more than a software brand, it's a hardware brand".

However, he stressed that this did not mean Atari is planning to make a new console. "I'm not talking about a new console but, like, a watch. A gamified watch. It's not what we are going to do, but think about [something like] that. Like a new type of watch is something we 'could do.' A watch, branded, where you don't have an 'ordinary' watch.
