    Mr.Hearn always looks like hes baked as a cake

    • misterhearn

      Ha! I’m pretty much straight edge. No alcohol, tobacco or anything else going on here. In fact, I don’t even drink soda. Sadly, I typically don’t get enough sleep, but that’s something I’m working on.

        lol just got the red eyes going in most vids

        • He’s got an 18 month old, I think that says enough. 😛

          • Sean

            im not trying to accuse, but the 18 month old explains alot

          • misterhearn

            16 month old, but yeah, you get the point 😉

          • She’s 1 year old, Mark. Don’t be one of those parents. 😉

          • misterhearn

            Typically I just say she’s one, but made an exception in this instance. I refuse to be one of those people saying my kid is 39 months old.

    I found out some REALLY interesting news that seems very plausible and would make for a good discussion. Its just a rumor… But given the evidence it could be true. I’ll keep it short, but basically… The reason games like Watch Dogs Drive Club, and a few others have all been delayed is because Sonys AND Microsofts online servers are not ready yet, and probably won’t be until next year. The reason for the Xbox servers won’t be ready is pretty simple. Originally, their severs were made with DRM in mind. Given that DRM has been scrapped, they now have to re-make their servers. That ones easy. But why would Sony have to do the same?

    Simple. Sonys wanted to do DRM as well. But given the bad reputation that it gave Xbox, they made it seem like they were all for the gamer at E3, which was extremely wise. Obliviously they were not going to tell people that they also had DRM planned. However now that has come back to bite them in the ass, as they now have to re-make their servers to be non DRM. Hence the reason for the delay of PS exclusive Drive Club. Notice how BOTH consoles are getting a day 1 update? Again, this is just a rumor I heard, but given the evidence it sounds true – at least to me.

    What do you think?

    EDIT: A Youtuber mentioned this rumor. I won’t say the username (They’ve got over 100,000 subscribers) But they mentioned that it was possible that the channel could be shut down – should this info prove to be true.

      review tech usa?

      • The Clockwork Being

        Love that guy. Not bias, interesting opinion and very very good news.

        • Sean

          yeah, rich is the man

          • The Clockwork Being

            Just saw the latest on the rumor and holy crap!!

    • sharlo galmo

      I believe this, because i have always thought that sony also want to do drm. But because off Microsoft, they play the game very dirty. I believe for eighty% that it is treu, and that the update gonna remove the drm.

    • The Clockwork Being

      Just saw Review Tech USA holy crap.

  • Sean

    if titanfall sells enough and keeps a buzz going it will go multiplat

  • The Clockwork Being

    Anyone know how to log onto IGN using this account?

  • InsaneZucchini

    I thought that Halo Combat Evolved was originally going to be multiplatform, that it would also be available on PS2. But Microsoft bought Bungie and it ended up exclusive. So that’s something besides RARE?

  • Guest

    I think that i would buy a HD 64 remake before i would want basically the equivalent for the Wii Sports HD remake !

  • letzringj

    I think that some of the N64 games would be worth it, more so than the Wii Sports HD remake, thats for sure!
