1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    This is why I think a non-replaceable internal hard drive is bad. To summarize, MS will require games to be downloaded onto the hard drive to be played. 500 GB will disappear quickly when games are 40, 50, or even 60 GB, which is probable with the anticipated advanced graphics; after all, current games are often 15+ GB. If we are to expect a 5 year or longer lifecycle for this console, that's a lot of time to accumulate games, even for the casual player. I have more than 15 games, I'd like to be able to play any of them without being forced to delete another.

    The 360 has an easily upgradeable hard drive, so this is clearly a step backwards. And yes, there will be ports to plug in external HDs, but that's probably going to lead to a drop in performance, in addition to the hassle of finding more space for extra tech.

    What does my age have to do with any of that?

    Well the Xbone and PS4 use USB 3.0. An external harddrive should provide similar performance as the internal one. As long as the software is seamless enough to lump any extra storage into the main pool, it shouldn't be a big deal.

    Looks even better than the first, music is just as brilliant.

    The first Hotline Miami was an amazing experience. One of the best games of the year.

    Got some more last of us time in over the weekend. Waiting for it to reel me in because it's not at the point where I am anxious to get home and play more every day. Hmm.

    This game had me hooked, to the point where I would get anxious if I wasn't playing it, I wanted to progress the story more and more, finally beat it yesterday and I was extremely pleased with the game overall. Haven't been this into a game since my early teen years probably

    I've given up on the PS3 controller. I suck at it. Can barely run in a straight line, much less shoot stuff.

    Bought a Xim, mouse, and keypad so as to emulate my PC gaming experience.
