    The AI in TitanFall do not give you the same amount of points as real players when you kill them. Killing an AI is worth 25 points and killing a real player is worth 500 points. Big difference

      Yeah that will change the tactics of how people play the game and target enemies. I didn’t know there would be a point difference, guess I just assumed it would all be the same.

    Loved the episode. Welcome back, all. A few thoughts on things discussed:

    Playstation Now is a huge deal. It’ll get my wife back into gaming. It’ll make the PS Vita even more useful. The only reason I’m hesitant is because Sony has a history of not delivering on promises and potential. Remember the PSP Go? Most of the PSP library didn’t go digital so people couldn’t abandon their UMDs. Will PS Now have location locks? There’s some Japanese dancing game my wife loved on early PS2; will she have access to that again? My fear is that the library will be filled with the games I already beat and got tired of when I was younger. Do I really want to play any Syphon Filter again?

    WWE Network sounds amazing, and that’s coming from someone who hasn’t watched regularly in more than a decade. Looking forward to inviting my nephew and nieces over for premium events at a discount. Wrestlemania was $100 last year, I think. But being able to go back and watch vintage Raw episodes? That’s game changing for me. That said, I do not like the idea of WWE abandoning networks in the future. That’ll only create a bubble for current fans and make them lose out on channel surfers. Y’all discussed data caps and bandwidth problems, and those more rural wrestling fans in the Central and Midwest regions would be assed out without network wrestling.

    As for the awards, don’t get sucked into politics and popularity contests. Sure, if you’d won, it’d be nice to throw a graphic badge up that says “Voted Best Whatever 2013″ on the site. But at the end of the day, you’re 415 episodes in with a proven and established track record. Fuck it.
