Ubisoft's Upcoming Games and TV Projects
details
Just curious on what Ubisoft have in store at E3 2014 for the current consoles, and if Ubisoft Motion Pictures might share details about any new programs, or even episodes of "Rabbids Invasion", that might complement those gaming titles on Xbox One.

Most especially would like to see early details about the rumored "Prince of Persia" on UbiArt Framework, if true, and "Assassin's Creed" the movie.

But, what do you guys expect from Ubisoft?

What's in your home-theater setup?
details
After about three years of building, scrimping and saving my home theater is finally complete and I'm curious what the Engadget forum-members have in their theater or living room. Here's my setup:
Display: 65" Panasonic VT60
Speakers: Klipsch Quintet (they're the 2011 models),
Subwoofer: 12-inch Klipsch Synergy HG 300W (it hits 24Hz and makes me very happy)
A/V Receiver: Onkyo TXNR515
Components: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U, a crappy Comcast SD cable box, Chromecast
Oh and for... Read more →

E3 reveals?
details
http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2013/06/e3hedimg619px.jpg
So, we're about two months away from E3 (Paris Fashion Week for games, for the uninitiated), what do you want to see from Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony? Given that everyone's new hardware is out in the wild, the focus this year is likely going to be on games, games, games, games and possibly a bit of VR.
No one knows what any of the platform holders have in store for this fall, but there are a handful of third-party games... Read more →

How close do you sit in front of the TV when gaming?
details
http://i.imgur.com/4h1lCzl.jpg
I've been playing a lot of BF4 lately and had an interesting realization. I sit entirely way too close to the television when I play games. I think my original justification for it is that I wear glasses, so I need to sit closer to see. Except I wear glasses when I play, so it makes that point moot.
Anyway, I sit about 3 to 5 feet away from the 32" TV that I use for gaming. I'm sure that it's not good for my eyes, but hey. How close do you find yourself sitting in...

I have a pretty decent gaming PC but find myself attracted to the Xbox One for some reason anyway...should I give in to my temptation to get one?
details
Pretty happy with my gaming PC and I have a large collection of games on Steam. I upgraded my PC a year ago.
For some irrational reason, I still think the Xbox One looks neat when I see it in the stores, so I'm wanting one now.
The rational part of me says:
I don't really watch a lot of cable TV. I have plenty of ways to watch Netflix and Amazon video. Several devices that could be used for Skype.
  • I have plenty of games, and my PC video card is plenty capable of playing current gen stuff maxed out....

    Taking a page from our database czar Kris, I thought that a good way to encourage us to finish a game a month would be to have a place where we could talk about what we're playing. Today marks the release of the survival horror game Outlast on PS4 (finally!) and I thought this would be a great place to start. It's a free download if you're a PS+ subscriber, or $20 if you aren't and I'm going to imagine it isn't... Read more →

    Should Nintendo also acquire a franchise to attract hard-core gamers?
    details
    When Microsoft made the move to purchase the Gears of War franchise, I immediately thought about Nintendo. Nintendo lacks a hard-core gaming audience and although it has succeeded many times without that audience, I think the best way to start gaining their attention would be to purchase a franchise that already exists instead of trying to build one from scratch. No existing franchise will want to build for Nintendo exclusively due to the risk of lack of sales but if it was bought out by... Read more →

    Pathmaking in Games
    details
    I am working on a Master's thesis in architecture and am interested in pathmaking and pathfinding as they are implemented in the virtual worlds of gaming. There appear to be two basic approaches to both: manual (i.e., designed) and procedural (i.e., algorithmic like roguelikes). My goal is to apply strategies garnered from an analysis of these topics to an architectural design (e.g., museum or game design company offices). Does anyone know of any good resources I could read or search out?
    Thanks!...

    Favorite games from 2013
    details
    We've had some exciting gaming discussions here in the forums over the past year. We talked about our initial impressions of the new consoles, if Nintendo can survive, and even what games we're all playing. As the year wraps up I thought it'd be fun to get a good idea of the communities favorite games to come out in 2013. This serves as a great way to check out games you may have missed or forgotten about.

    On the Engadget blog, Brian Heater sums up some of the biggest tech misfires of 2013.
    • Microsoft gets DRM-happy with the Xbox One
    • The NSA gets caught reading everyone's email
    • DMCA phone-unlocking ban is back in action
    • Pretty much everything Blackberry
    • OUYA's lukewarm launch
    Is there anything missing from this list? Who do you think had a particularly rough time in 2013?

    Anti-Cursing rules on XB1?

    You guys may have heard about Microsoft planning to discipline gamers for swearing in multiplayer games. Personally this doesn't affect me too much, but I know of several you tubers whose content could be affected by these rules. Does this change your opinions on PS4 / XB1? (Source)

    Do you prefer the physical or digital versions of video games?
    details
    With the next generation of gaming consoles having officially arrived, many are trying to decide if they are going to stick to the physical versions of games or go all digital. There are the pros and cons to each, but I am firmly in the physical game camp when I can. I like the look of physical games on the shelf, I enjoy the box art for my games, and I know that I shouldn't rely on the console manufacturer to get my digital games back in some sort of crash or theft of my device.

    With the release of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One this month, many are declaring it the start of the "next generation of consoles," in particular the eighth. Both machines are competing with similar specs and games, though each has its own unique attributes to push gamers in one direction or the other.
    "But," a few have said, "the eighth generation actually started a year ago, with the release of the Wii U!"

    RE: PlayStation 4 or Xbox One: Which game console to buy this holiday
    details
    Today, Ben Gilbert posted on article in which he gives his opinion on which console to buy this holiday season. I realize that everyone has their opinion and since Ben shared his, I would like to share mine.
    To be quite frank, the PS4 and the Xbox One are not worth the money right now. Here's why I believe so:
    • Both consoles are missing out key features that were promised and are waiting on updates in the "future" . In some cases, these "next-gen" consoles lack basic functionality that their...
