Whelp, glad I didn't buy Soul Sacrifice. (didn't think the demo was that great anyway)

Scene at the CIA laboratory where they opened the rift to the other dimension. As cheesy as that sounds, I thought it was done pretty damned well and wasn't something I expected.

That was awesome. Very suspenseful, too. There are some good scenes in this game, but I'm a bit ambivalent about the jumping around.

Is it possible XBONE interface works this smoothly (or close to this)? If it comes close to this, it's pretty impressive. I imagine a lot of loading/transitions were cut in order to make the marketing video more compact.
I don't know. The video had a pop up about Titanfall being ready (either put in a game or the game downloaded) then suddenly they were running once it loaded. That seems fishy.

I've heard that the only thing street dated to Nov 15 is the PS4 itself. The games and controllers are just released as ready.

I rented that after I finished my exam yesterday. I played about 4 hours worth. It's good so far.

(also, I have to get Gran Turismo 6)
Last of Us. Beyond is good, but Last of Us has been better so far (plus I can't imagine there's much replayability to Beyond).

That was a good one. I agree that I'm not a huge fan with the jumping around. So far, my favorite segment has been:

I also registered my PS+ membership, bought Lone Survivor and Downloaded Hotline Miami. Looking forward to playing them once I finish Beyond: Two Souls.

The out of orderness of Beyond REALLY pays off in the "Night Session" chapter.

Spoiler:
Just played it, it has me in tears, but I don't know if it would if it had come in order.

Just watched GameTrailers' Top 10 FF Characters Video. Made me nostalgic for these games all over again. Hell, I didn't like FF12, but seeing scenes from it in the video made me remember how nice that game looked.

Here's the list:
10. Sephiroth (FF7)
9. Cid (many)
8. Auron (FF10)
7. Cecil (FF4)
6. Zack (FF7 / Crisis Core)
5. Rydia (FF4)
4. Balthier (FF12)
3. Celes (FF6)
2. Vivi (FF9)
1. Kefka (FF6)

The video's misdirection before showing #1 was great imo. They showed Cloud as a tease, because a lot of people would expect Cloud on this list, and then they dub over him Kefka's laugh.

While my list would be different (and I'd have to give it some though), I love that my fav (FF4) is represented twice, and that even though FF7 is represented twice, they excluded the Cloud in exchange for Zack (Crisis Core is probably the best FF game produced since FF10...a shame it had to be on a handheld not a lot of people owned).
