  1. Hello Everyone!

  2. Enjoy folks, pity I wasn't able to stay up to see all this.
  3. Game of the year (2017) was Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Other nominees:  Horizon, Zero Dawn, Super Mario Odyssey, Persona 5 (this one surprised me), & Player Unknowns battlegrounds.  

  4. Anti loot box laws

    Courtesy of Layman gaming. Legislators in Hawaii are drafting Anti-lootbox legislation
  5. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    For those who either have SW battlefront 2, or either plan on getting it or haven't decided yet, this will interest you. Consider yourselves warned.
  6. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    What'll hopefully be the final post in regards to this fiasco. Those who have the money may seriously want to consider buying EA stock now while it's fairly low, well low in comparison to what it was pre-Battlefront 2 mess, it won't be this low price forever.
  7. Hello Everyone

  8. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    My favorite dark humor video in regards to the fiasco EA did to themselves. The best part of the vid, to me, starts around the 4:30 mark. On a more serious note, the latest is courtesy of SidAlpha. Hawaii is the one the surprised me. Granted state law is not federal, but if more states follow suit, especially on the mainland, it could be well on its way to being a federal matter.
  9. Rate the last movie you watched.

    Justice League I liked it overall, but anyone expecting an Avengers flick should see an Avengers flick. I could also see where Zack Snyder left the film & Whedon took over. Some were obvious, like some scenes from the earlier commercials not making it into the final film, other like actual comedy/light-hearted scenes (which Snyder simply does NOT do) making it into the film. I'm also guessing that GL was supposed to be in the film under Zack Snyder, but that was changed when Whedon took over. It's a good follow-up to how uplifting Wonder Woman felt. While by no means the best DC installment of their recent flicks, it'll definitely be added to my DVD/Blu-Ray collection when it hits. 7 out of 10
  10. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    Just when I thought the story had died down, especially since the game was supposedly released either yesterday or the day before; lookee lookee folks:
  11. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    Then I guess it's a good thing I'm moving toward the indies then.
  12. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    I worry about the "going forward" aspect of this. Battlefront 2 is thus far the most egregious example of the loot boxes, but it's only going to escalate. Belgium opening an investigation (the UK is already undergoing a similar one, if reports are accurate) will start putting an "eye of Sauron"-like focus on the AAA gaming industry as it is now & hopefully put a kibosh on this "pay to play" thing that they're doing. At the very least put labeling on the game that says "digital gambling component". Parents that see those words on a gaming label will not want their kids coming close to anything like that, which will also have the effect of forcing the AAAs away from such practices... if the parents are true parents that is.
  13. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    As of yesterday: The upper one interests me the most, if they do something it might get the ball rolling for the west to follow suit.
  14. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    That's nothing, wait until Activision's patent goes through, if it hasn't already. YongYea can explain it better then I:
  15. Gems of War on Xb1

    I couldn't find the original thread for the Xbox One version of the game. For those in the guild, I added the Guild Champion bonus for the week starting today.
  16. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    The latest, as of an hour ago; again courtesy of YongYea.
  17. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    This is the AAA industry now. Hell, look at the damned patent Activision did in the last few years (where they pair you up vs/with someone who will very likely have an item you may want). It's little more then legalized gambling &/or going after the "impulse" player. They even have terms for that, which I didn't know before: Whales (for those who are willing to shell out tons of cash for these upgrades; I.E.: paying to win), & Dolphins (for those who will "only" spend upgrade cash every so often). I'm guessing "suckers" &/or "non-lifers" is for those who just grind & grind & grind for these upgrades until their fingers fall off. Practices like these are, in part, why I'm moving toward the "indies".
  18. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    That, I've no idea, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least; it would fit into "pushing" people into paying to win via those loot-boxes. With gaming now either considered a sport, or about to be considered as such (I forgot which), expect these things to escalate as time goes on. At least until the bubble inevitably bursts; greed after all, knows no common sense.
  19. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    The latest, again courtesy of YongYea. See, there are occasions where the AAAs learn lessons to benefit the regular Joes & Janes... even if only grudgingly.
  20. Humorous & scary, all at once.
  21. Cuphead

    The game comes out today in a few hours. Those who plan on getting it, have basically 2 options: the Steam version & the Xb1/PC version. if you get the latter it's a "play anywhere" title. The initial reviews of the game are out folks. The top one is by ACG the one below is via Gamespot
  22. Cuphead

    Maybe, but that stifles some of the fun. I'd love to play online co-op with a friend of mine, & we live waay to far from each other to do the local co-op. Oh well, it is what it is.
  23. Cuphead

    Very; if there's one thing the makers of the game screwed up on is that there is no online co-op for this, only local. I've read off & on that they are aware of the issue, but being aware of something & actually trying to correct it are 2 different things.
  24. Rate the last movie you watched.

    The Foreigner It is a Jackie Chan movie (he produced & starred in it), though not the stereotypical JC movie (it's not an action-comedy). While there are action sequences & of course explosions, that's not the core of this film. If I were to give it an actual classification, I would probably lump it into the "political thriller"; it's certainly the first film I've seen of his where he does kill. It caters to a certain niche/demographic of viewer; you'll either like it or not, it was something of a "slow burn" for me. 6 or 7 out of 10
