Thank you for producing such a great product. What I really love about this site is the community aspect, the fact that not only the members interact with each other, but your staff also takes the time to read comments and respond is really awesome.

The articles posted here are fantastic. Before I purchase any game I always read your reviews first, and I haven't been disappointed.

Merry Christmas everyone at Pushsquare!

Disney Infinity for me. I'm getting Venom and my daughter is getting Elsa and Anna. I got my wife Aladdin. Now that I think of it, I may not get a chance to play if my family gets characters they'll want to play. Foiled again by Christmas!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

@Zep_Fan_81 I do get objections. She plays iPad games, and mostly games that help her count and problem solve. I think that if you forbid anything it'll make things worse. I think there's anything wrong if you use technology as a learning tool and have fun doing it. As you said, the world we live in and future generations, technology is going to be a big part of that world.

@Zep_Fan_81 my daughter is 3 as well. She plays with me (she has Rupunzel but is getting Elsa and Anna for Christmas, while I'm going to be getting Venom). She has a hard time running around in the game, but I just pick her character up and carry her until we get to a place with enemies, which she's pretty good at hitting the triangle button 😉

@Zep_Fan_81 it is the Marvel one. I like it. On Black Friday I asked my father in law to get the game for me, since he was out shopping before me. He got the 1.0 edition by mistake. I downloaded 2.0 on PSN. I haven't played any Marvel characters yet, but the amout of content imo is amazing. There is plenty for you to build, but if you don't want to build stuff, you can go out and download games others have made. I think one complaint I've heard and read is the lack of play sets for 2.0 starter pack. (Starter pack for 1.0 came with 3 play sets). But I mainly play in the toy box, which I feel is the real value of the game and most fun.

Kingdoms of amalur. The expansions are discounted for this weekend so it gave me the opportunity to play it again...

I switched out my harddrive since the last time I played the game, so now I'm starting over. But that's ok, it's a fun game so I don't mind.

@get2sammyb I would think that with all the video game playing, your dexterity would only increase as you get older ;).

I'm going to be playing some WWE 2k14 and I just picked up Fallout 3 for 5 bucks. I played Fallout 1&2, and loved them. Looking forward to trying out 3.

Rogue76 commented on Review: CounterSpy (PlayStation 4):

Good review. I think you were fair with the strengths and weaknesses of the game and also acknowledged the effort that was put into the game. I haven't played very much of the game, I can see what you mean about walking into a room and not given a chance to hide, and it soon becomes a shoot out.

I think based on the amount of effort that was put into the game, there is probably a bit of a disappointment that some of the mechanics of the game didn't work out as it was intended. Certainly doesn't make the game unplayable (and I don't think you were saying that) just disappointed.

When I get a chance (rather IF I get a chance) to game I'll be playing some WWE 2k14, maybe some Defiance, and picked up Madden 13 (used and cheap). Haven't played a Madden game in a while, so I'll give it a go.

@odd69 wasn't there a discount if you downloaded early? At least is thought there was (that's why I downloaded early).

Didn't get any game playing in this weekend. Had a wedding to attend and some reading I needed to catch up on. Hopefully get to play some games this week :). Been hooked on Defiance. :)

An interesting read.

A few things that come to my mind when I read this article. First, I enjoy playing indie games, I thoroughly enjoyed Journey, and RCR brought me back to my childhood (especially with all the references :)). Perhaps it's because I grew up in an era where the graphics...well...stunk! While I am in awe of graphics now a days, the graphics aren't what pull me into a game, it's the game itself, and if it's a good game, I'll play it, doesn't matter if it's an indie game or a big named studio.

The second thought that came to mind was a program I heard on NPR, which talked about the state of video games. What I found interesting is that big studios put in a lot of time and money to make games that take 40+ hours to play, when the "average" gamer only plays about 10 hours of the game, then goes online somewhere to view the ending of the game. Because of this, a lot of studios are looking to make shorter games.

Now I say "average" gamer, but I'm not implying anyone here is an "average" gamer, I think the people on here are extraordinary gamers :). But I do think that a lot of people my age, (37 if anyone is wondering) that grew up playing Atari, NES, SNES, PSone, PS2, PC, etc...the gamers of my time now have other responsibilities, and thus, don't have time to play the long epic games that big studios produce.

That's just my two cents.
