  1. Thor: Ragnarok trailer

    Yeah, but somehow Hulk is there. I'm curious to see how they write that into the movie. Hulk is more intelligent and well behaved, though. That was also apparent in the trailer. I think he could carry a movie with that personality.
  2. Thor: Ragnarok trailer

    Have you read the Planet Hulk series? It's one of the best. He's a different dude there.
  3. Thor: Ragnarok trailer

    I'm right there with you! He's my favorite. They've said this is about as close as we'll get to a World War Hulk movie. I hope they do it justice, and maybe fan response gives them a reason to backtrack.
  4. The Flash TV show

    The producers said late last season that next season's villain will not be a Speedster (yay!). Based on how things have played out with the female villains in Flash and Arrow, I'm hoping we'll see something like that take center stage.
  5. Fortnite anyone?

    For those of you wondering how Fortnite is, here's a quick preview... The game has several dimensions to it. The root of it is a FPS base defense game where you run & gun and build traps. In this regard, it's a lot like Orcs Must Die with floor traps, wall traps and ceiling traps, and a lot of shooting. The game has a whimsical feel to it, kinda like Plants vs Zombies. You progress through a path of quests that increase your skills (big skill tree), heroes, base defenders, weapons and traps. Some of the missions are at your main base, which is static through the game. You can keep building it bigger and however you want. The other missions put you in a public area where you have some objectives, ultimately requiring you to protect an objective from waves of monsters. This is where you and 3 other people create a small fort with walls and traps to protect the objective. I've played these with public groups, no voice chat, and they've all been fun and gone smoothly. Since 4 people are building these forts, they get kinda crazy sometimes. I'm impressed at how easy it is to build and manipulate objects, especially with a controller. Sometimes, groups build a bunch of walls and no traps, other groups have people that build tons of traps. This is where I think playing with a group of friends is really beneficial, since you can coordinate the fort building. Through all of this, you collect a lot of weapons, including pistols, assault rifles and swords. Weapons have durability and they will break quite often. You also receive schematics which allow you to build weapons from materials you find while you're on missions. So while you're running around fighting monsters, you have to use a pickax to harvest resources from rocks, tree, cars, etc. It's a big part of the game, and I frequently find that I'm running low on materials required for traps and ammo. If it sounds like a lot, it's because it is! This game has a lot going on. I haven't even touched on build defense squads or upgrading your heroes. You can find a lot of videos on YouTube and get a feel for the action. As for the Free-to-Play part, that will come next year once the game finishes development (and enough suckers like me pay money to support the development). Once it does, you spend money to buy V-bucks (in game currency), then you use those to buy Llama pinatas. Smashing pinatas drops cool weapon schematics, traps, defenders, etc. You do not need to buy these to progress in the game. They do make things a little easier, but even without them the game is just as fun. (BTW, smashing lllama pinatas is a lot of fun.)
  6. Fortnite anyone?

    It's just moved from Alpha to Beta, so you get to pay to be in the beta. But, it comes with a lot of perks (llama pinatas) that you'll have to pay for when it's free to play if you want them. The game is very polished, especially for a beta, and doesn't feel half-baked.
  7. Fortnite anyone?

    Yeah, that part is hang up for me. I'll buy one, then a bunch of people will be playing it somewhere else. It supports cross-platform between PC & PS4, but not Xbox. (Peculiar, considering MS started a push to make PC & Xbox games cross-platform.)
  8. Fortnite anyone?

    Fortnite gets released to the public on Friday (7/20/17). Anyone here picking it up? I'll probably get it on Xbox, unless there's a group playing on PC or PS4. ... Yeah, I know it'll be free-to-play next year, but I don't want to wait that long. I don't mind paying for a founder's pack and getting the extra goodies, which I'd have to pay for if I went the Free route. I just hope it doesn't collapse before official launch like EQ Next did (wowee I wasted a lot of money on that one).
  9. Help me decide

    Get a 1TB external drive and transfer all your saved data to it. Then plug it into you new PS4 and leave it as an external drive. That way your gaming data is always available to you in case your PS4 bites the dust.
  10. Still working on TS?

    Looks like there was still an issue with the server. It keeps shutting down after a few minutes. I gave it a good talking to, and it seems to be behaving now.
  11. Still working on TS?

    I restarted the service. It's working now.
  12. Still working on TS?

    I renewed the license on Thursday morning and it was working fine after that. I've been out of town at a BBQ competition. Checking it now.
  13. Thanks! I've been needing an new headset, because the SkullCandy Xbox headset messes with my right eardrum. Also, if anyone else is interested, order one from Amazon and support TAG: https://www.amazon.com/HyperX-Revolver-Headset-HX-HSCR-BK-NA/dp/B01CIEBU54/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1471000289&sr=8-1&keywords=Hyper+X+Cloud+Revolver+Headset&tag=theadugam0d-20
  14. EQ NEXT Cancelled..

    Yep, same here. I'm done with crowd funding or paying for early access to games, unless they're really cheap. I also have a couple Kick Starter campaigns I supported that aren't settling too well with me.
  15. EQ NEXT Cancelled..

    Landmark launches this week. I gave up on it after SOE sold it off and Daybreak dropped the ball. There is still some interest on the forums, but I think it's just the fans holding it up. I haven't seen any strong promotions for the game. Based on what I saw of EQN, it was going to be really cool, but also really expensive.
