Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Just a heads up... the PC version of NBA2K14 doesn't look like the video. It's the same as the 360/PS3 versions, not like the XB1/PS4 version which the video is taken from.

        Yes, I was absolutely pissed off. I bought this on PC and was like wtf.... Not powered by the new engine so don't bother. However it's really awesome on Xbone/PS4.

      I miss when Green Man had really amazing deals on new games and recent ones lowered in price quickly. Now it is all about Playfire, bleh.

        what's the deal with playfire? I keep getting emails about signing up, but fuck I already have
        to resort to signing up for paypal just to buy the gd games.

          Yeah, what Sideways said. Tracks achievements on Steam and Origin and depending on the game you can earn GMG credit.

          I guess it is suppose to take the place of the old good deals but it is only specific games for limited time.
          Time to find a new place to buy games.

            They still have some good deals and always are sending me 25% - 35% off coupons. Also the playfire stuff isn't too bad all you have to do is play games and you can earn credit. No client needed to install or anything.

            I've made like $5 in credits just playing a few games that I didn't even know were on their rewards list, if I were to actually look at the list more and go out of my way to play some games more when they are on the list I would have made more.

        Took me a while to figure this out. You have to walk forward, then hit backwards, then forward again.

          yeah I finally got past that. Now I'm working on figuring out how to chain events together to get a big score.

      It's The Darkness II, not Darksiders II in the Humble 2k Bundle.

      Darksiders isn't and never was a 2k game.
