It’s interesting to remember that these shows are more indie than Adult Swim.
Anyways, I do agree with your points. Bravest warriors is my favorite, But the animation and style of Bee and Puppcat are alluring in a way mainstream cartoons aren’t, probably because of the Ghibli influence.

I don’t see a problem with the Wii U Pad as a normal controller (other than battery life). Have you used one? It’s more comfortable and lighter than it looks.
Ironically though, Pikmin 3 is superior with a Wii Remote. So, I think they actually have two great control styles right now depending on what and how you play.

Hardware is an issue though…you and me both are hoping for that.

The point I made is that the PS4 might not be viable if we all assume it’s going to be there “eventually”.

I’m more than happy with them bolstering Nintendo’s line-up with titles like Sonic:Lost Worlds. Plus, the PC port of Sonic Racing has turned out to be one of the best and most widely available racers ever. I like where they’re at, and they are profiting off that place.

The profitability of blueray might prop them up financially, but it’s irresponsible to continue a gaming business losing money just because they are selling a lot of phones or selling their headquarters. I wouldn’t run my business that way. Yet, Sony is a risk-taker, evidently.

First of all, take your vitriol isn’t appreciated.

Secondly, Sony has to pay out a sum to publishers most of the time in order to put the games up for free. Check out my source at game trailers, it explains the process a bit. I don’t think, therefore, the subscriptions are going to cover it. Their finances suggest they are breaking even since their numbers year for year have not changed. I would love to be wrong on this count if you have proof.

At any rate, I think their irresponsibility with plus on vita is proof enough that their approach with Plus on PS3 and PS4 will not be profitable. They are putting up many indie games (the ones they need to recoup their losses on too), and they just pushed out a new PS3 first party lineup including LBP karting (which is relatively new), Uncharted 3 (a AAA which will always sell) and XCom (admittedly, most people probably bought this on steam sale by now). It’s all so risky, especially when we see Microsoft being niggardly with their own free games program, and they are the ones who’ve been profiting.

Nintendo is my first choice, but I’ve designed this article as the first of a three-part series. I’ll be debasing the PS4 next.

Very cool analysis of a series I have never seen. I will definitely check it out.

Oh! And I completely agree with your sentiment about This is the End. It’s such a great boil-down of this generation’s humor. That said, I enjoyed the raunch.
