  1. Does anyone play Fortnite?

    I have it too but I am in the same boat as Havoc - I am pretty terrible at surviving any encounter with an enemy player in it.
  2. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    I mean, it's possible things could change in the industry, but my cynicism says it'd need more than just an outcry against one game to do that. COD WW2 could use a similar response with many of the epic, heroic, and legendary weapons being locked behind lootboxes but the fanbase there says it's not the same because they're just weapons, not hero classes. EVE-Online fanbase says skill injectors for characters are not the same because it doesn't guarantee winning, thus it's not really pay-to-win. I think the better course of action might be for gamers to write to their senators and congressmen about their concern of this being "online gambling", which is illegal for many states, but then that'd introduce government regulation into game development which I know quite a few wouldn't be a fan of.

    Welcome back!
  4. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    BF2 is not even close to the most egregious example of loot boxes. Not even close. Look to games published from companies in China and South Korea for that. This isn't something new that's happened in the gaming industry but has been around (and accepted by certain sectors of gaming, namely sports, digital TCG, MMOs, MOBAs, and mobile) for a long time now. It only is perceived this way because it's being done with a beloved, long-standing IP with an audience (FPS gamers) that hasn't yet been slowly conditioned to accept this behavior as the norm. The reason why this happened is because it's already been an accepted norm in other areas of gaming and because it's been more profitable than the actual boxed games sales by an incredible margin, which means that to game publishers and shareholders, gamers have already voted with their wallets on spending money on loot boxes. If that hadn't been the case, this whole scenario would have never happened. Companies don't like taking risks with well-established, super-popular franchises first - they save that experimentation for other things. And sadly, anything European legislative bodies do will have zero effect on us here in the states, just like all their antitrust legislation and consumer advocate policies bare no weight on companies here.
  5. Battlefront 2s unlockable hero

    I caved when they waved the white flag in temporary truce and disabled microtransactions until a further time period. The campaign is utterly amazing and brilliant. I have not been this happy playing a Star Wars game since the Jedi Knight/KOTOR days. They put a LOT of hard work and lore love into this.
  6. Call of Duty WWII

    We should totally go old school and start some D&D TAG groups. Those don't have loot boxes or server issues.
  7. Call of Duty WWII

    Nope. It's still terrible. Last night I was immediately disconnected from the servers as soon as I tried to launch the multiplayer portion of the game.
  8. Been a long time

    Welcome back! Friend request sent from rubyroids. :)
  9. Any Dead by Daylight players out there??

    Hit up @Ghost Touched on either Xbox or PC!
  10. Call of Duty WWII

    Sweet! You both should receive requests from "rubyroids" - I'm definitely a "core" person compared to the hardcore crowd, haha.
  11. Call of Duty WWII

    I've been enjoying it so far. Some big names voice acting the Zombies (Ving Rhames, David Tennant, etc) - definitely want to do that with taggers! Multiplayer mode WAR reminds me of old school Return to Castle Wolfenstein/Enemy Territory gameplay. Campaign feels solid. Only put two hours into it but I'm liking it a lot!
  12. Call of Duty WWII

    This is arriving in my mailbox tomorrow. Excited to at least play the campaign.
  13. TAG Night Highlights

    That is totally Randy Savage channeling The Offspring.
  14. Xbox One X Standard Edition Pre-Orders LIVE

    I will probably be picking one of these bad boys up for the holidays as I have decided to not upgrade my PC any further for gaming purposes.
