This is a great feature, if your in media center you can queue your movies up and stream them as if you were not in media center.

If you are not in media center you can still go to netflix and queue them up and watch them directly on your desktop.

The BIG positive here is that you can now be on your xbox360 and fire up media center, queue up some movies and then watch opposed to not having any control before hand with the netflix plug-in for the 360.

I think it's a very welcomed addition.

My computer is upstairs in my spare bedroom, my 360 is downstairs n the living room. Now I don't have to fire up the laptop or run upstairs to queue stuff up.

I see it as a big positive not a negative.

Abby deserves to be number 1.

He was created to appease the poison colored haired employees at Naughty Dog and their fantasy of hating all of their fathers for lack thereof. This was the worst case of a company that was in charge of a media hating their own fans.

Streamers would straight up be reported or even banned for letting Abby die in the boss fight while playing as a fake female that has a man's motion capture.

Abby as a human wouldn't exist in a ruined world with that musculature because there wouldn't be enough available protein in the world to maintain all that manly muscle mass unless cannibalism was Introduced.

Abby wasn't just terrible for the games narrative but in totality with the media reputation included. If that wasn't so tarnished the fans would have already gotten a 3rd game in the once loved series.

And with that flat chest having Abby as the main character would title the Game The Last of Us Tranz 3 Parts removed

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

We all know that videogamer.com went to each and every Xbox 360 owners house to watch them frantically dust off their 360s.

I mean it is a 1000% growth in the player-base. /s

Enough to write an article though. N4g new owners are insulting us for click revenue

Vits1d 10h ago


Nothing to do with new owners. N4G has always been the trashcan for game news and discussion.

I love video games so much that I never have the time to replay the old one that I have finished, my backlog has only gotten bigger and bigger. I don't get how some people can play one game for years (except for mmorpg)

mandf1d 10h ago

It's an exaggeration to the extreme. A way making an exclusive seen grander than it is.

Some people do I know someone who only ever plays dune 2000 which is rarely but still

RedDevils22h ago

Those Fifa or COD players do that every years.

Wonder why they've never ported this game over to last Gen and now current Gen. This game would be pretty popular right now, I think.
