Personally , couldn't give a crap about what company suceeds. As long as their are good games out. At the moment, Xbox 360 has the games i prefer, so i will keep with it. Don't see why people care about how more billions corporations get.

I agree with the author's conclusions that MS has done most things right with a few hiccups here and there. I would have prefered that they spend a little bit more and gave us a two sku pricing structure with a HD standard. Other than that I am extremely happy with the console.

They do need a monthly newsletter or something telling you what's coming up on Live, or even what's available right now. Asking me to search for new content when there is no new content wastes my time and frustrates the public. We can all get messages, so why not use it?

Getting a sort of ad from MS telling me the release dates of games, demos, arcade titles. Of course there should be an option to disable this if it gets too annoying.

About the article, I thought it was a great read and really talked about what are the good, and bad are with ways to make it better. Can't wait for the next one!

They should send it through the messaging system on XBL.. Newsleeter is a good idea you should call MS and suggest it b/c they do listen to the customers!!! Also he said MS has done we'll besides a few hiccups here and there.. I can't wait to see what he has to say about Sony!!

Wolfenstein: The New Order Is The Last Of Its Kind

Wolfenstein: The New Order turns ten years old today, so we decided to play it again and discovered just how much of an extinct kind of game it is.

It's an outstanding game and so was The Old Blood. Also a lost era of gaming. Interesting, I received a physical copy of The Old Blood 9 years ago today from Poland. It was digital only in North America initially upon release so I had to import.

Wolfenstein: The New Order - A Highly Rated FPS That Hasn't Stood the Test of Time

Wolfenstein: The New Order launched 10 years ago today, but can it stand up to the modern FPS titles it inspired?

I disagree. Its still a fantastic game, with very good gunplay and a surprisingly loveable cast of characters and a good story trough many different and interesting setpieces

All The New Order needs for my tastes is a this gen enhancement patch.

I played New Order a couple of years after launch and I give it an 8/10. The shooter holds up because it is focused on being a good shooter. There is no crafting, no RPG elements, no open world find the question mark Weapons are fun. Enemies are fun. Levels offer a nice mix of stealth and shooting. You get to be the predator; this isn’t a game about fending off waves of enemies while a robot companion unlocks a door. Most importantly, New Order is the last of a dying breed of single player shooters.

Singleplayer shooters are still getting released every year, just look up "boomer shooters" and you'll find an an abundance of them. AAA fps campaigns, not so much.

Last year had Trepang2, RoboCop: Rogue City, Turbo Overkill, Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, Dread Templar, Sprawl and more

The games you mentioned are not from AAA developers. Wolfenstein likely had a budget that was probably as big as all those games you mentioned combined. I'm not knocking the new wave of retro shooters. I absolutely love them (I think some get much higher review scores than they deserve though). I just really wouldn't describe Wolfenstein as purely a boomer shooter based on the relatively cohesive story, with cut scenes and is fully voice acted. Full set piece moments.

AA development seems to be focused keeping the single player solo experience alive. But the big developers are only concerned about the MTX and milking players who enjoy multiplayer.

The age of AA shooters. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I like less expense, shorter games.

Weird all the Wolfenstein articles.

Can you guess what will be announced at Xbox showcase?
