  1. This guy bought his pants from the same store.
  2. What a pointless video. The least they could have done was have The Count sing it.
  3. Interesting. I'll have to look into it some.
  4. So many memories of Sega Genesis. All these years later we get the equivilant of a huge DLC for a retro game. Looks fun.
  5. Isn't that an amazing feeling? I thought the same thing and after a year now I've just now started on Mass Effect 1... one game out of my 200+ steam games I have yet to play.
  6. I've seen this game mentioned plenty of times during the PS3 days as being amazing, but I never looked into it. I guess Shadow of the Colossus is actually a prequel to an old PS2 game called ICO and the sequel to that is the Last Guardian? I've never played any of them.
  7. Well.. I dunno. That kind of reminds me of a scene in the wolfenstein the new order. Slight spoiler.. I found some nuke launch codes and Blazkowicz decides to carve the numbers into his forearm and then rip that chunk of skin off and puts it in his pocket. And on the stand right next to the nuke codes was a notepad and pencil. I guess the cat serves as much purpose as that notepad?
  8. https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/days-of-play/cid=STORE-MSF77008-DAYSOFPLAY17LP Uncharted 4 is $20. I just bought it. I might have to put Mass Effect on the back burner.
  9. I haven't played a Quake game since the original. Its probably a big deal in the new game since BJ Blazkowicz's signature style is dual wielding almost every gun he can get his hands on. Dual assault rifles with grenade launcher attachments or dual tactical shotguns is quite fun to mow down enemies with.
  10. I'm hyped for this game. I'm surprised BJ Blazkowicz survived the first game considering how it ended. The cat headed monkey makes sense because of Nazis. lol. These Wolfenstein games take place in an alternative time line where Nazis won World War 2. Since the Nazis took control of the planet, they have continued genetic experimentation, human and animal testing, robotics, space exploration, etc. They also enslaved a large chunk of the world's population. Since Nazi's don't have to pay for slave labor, health insurance, etc. all that money gets funneled into new scientific advancements. They had a moon base in Wolfenstein the New Order.. AI robotic sentry dogs that were shown in this trailer, laser weapons, tripod walkers that were the equivilant of metal gears.. all kinds of crazy stuff. The plot was actually really good. I still haven't played the prequel yet, but I'm really looking forward to this sequel.
  11. Ok then. I did not see this coming. Who needs stealth mechanics and espionage when theres a horde of zombies to kill.
  12. I like the idea of having traditional classes. In battlefront 1 everyone was running with a sniper rifle anyway until it got nerfed. They'll do the same with battlefront 2. Once to many ppl use a rifle it'll get nerfed into the ground like the martini. I'm glad the dlc won't get milked for another season pass. Blizzard's Overwatch finally made EA realize a fps game can be hugely profitable by not double charging it's players for maps and not seperating the player base ensures the longevity of the game.
  13. Alot of comments are saying it's a sci-fi attack on titan game because a "giant wall" keeps the enemies at bay. I look forward to seeing some gameplay but with it being bioware I'll take it with a grain of salt. Remember that 4k Mass Effect Andromeda trailer that got everyone hyped? And then on release those facial animations... these companies never deliver what they hype.
  14. 4 years now. Lmao. I bet we'll see another trailer for it next year at E3 in 2018.
  15. Awesome.
  16. My brother had a similar issue with a game and ended up calling sony customer support. They had him log into his psn account via a PC web browser, refreshed his list on there and set the game to download through the browser, which in turn auto started the download on his ps4. It worked for him. Turned out there was some issue with the psn store thru the ps4 that wouldn't actually trigger the download even though it says it did. If that doesn't work, I'd call sony tech support. Also make sure your system is up to date. Usually the ps4 will block access to the psn store, friend's list, etc until you have the most recent firmware, but I had, on one occasion, noticed my ps4 didn't update and didn't prompt me to update. I had weird EA errors connecting to battlefield 1. I thought EA servers were screwed up but they weren't so I checked to see if I had a failed BF1 update in my download list and it turned out my ps4 downloaded a system update but never installed it while still giving me access to everything else like it was all up to date. After I ran the update everything ran fine.
  17. Thats odd. Maybe deleting the entire game and re-downloading all of it is the only way to fix it.. but then again, doing that you'd loose all your progress. Is it like the tell tale games where you can play ep 5 standalone and the game auto picks your previous choices? That would suck to not carry over progress tho.
  18. World versus World in Guild Wars 2 is fun again. I've played a little over an hour a night for the last 2 nights and I haven't had that much fun in WvW since I was power leveling my second character almost 3 years ago. I think I'll upload a video later tomorrow. The zerg rushes are real. XD I saved a couple videos but the one I really wanted didn't save for some reason. We had a full on battle of 3 armies, so epic. XD

      You must have gotten on after I quit out last night. I was about to give up playing any WvW but then I saw Cloud Fly logged on, so I camped at a waypoint with him and waited about 15 mins for a zerg to form. Best hour of WvW I've ever had. :D I took a couple videos and I'll check them later and upload. Epic battles. Because there was no queue on any of the borderlands at the time, we kept swapping between each of the borderlands annihilating enemy zergs thanks to the scouts we had in place. XD

      Resistance works great on warrior in pvp when I need to pop it. It makes you immune to condi damage but does not cleanse the condi from you. You can always tell when resistance is on because its represented as three glowing orbs all tethered together circling around you. Its another reason why healing signet is so strong on warrior. The constant HP regen is amazing, but then if you get condi bombed, you pop healing signet for the heal and the resistance, then use endure pain to negate physical damage while healing signet comes off cool down to resume regen healing. I don't know what skills or traits rev has for resistance but a rev can share that resistance with an entire group which can make them extremely useful in wvw.

      I don't know how in the hell Cloud Fly survives as much as he does in WvW. Hes running bersker with healing signet, hammer and sword/(torch i think?). Sword is condi for warrior and hammer is all CC. I need to find out what his build is. If hes running with berserker stats then he must be using the defense trait line for the traited endure pain and extra healing regen traits. That guy is impressive as all hell in WvW.

      He must have a good network of scouts on discord because he always knows where to go to stop the enemies from taking the keeps and where the enemy siege is when we take something. The Borderland hoping was great. After we crushed them on FABL, they came back again and we destroyed them and then chased the rest across the map killing more to teach them a lesson. XD we were even killing them in the water. I'm glad you got to experience his commanding. That food he drops helps too with the 20% less damage from condi and when stunned.

      That food was useful and it surprised me how beneficial it was. My video card capture software does not like wvw. One of my videos saved with no audio. One didn't finish encoding and is unwatchable and all my videos since the windows 10 creators update has been full of endless stutter issues. 😒 the stuttering might be because of wvw causing to much strain on my cpu tho. Either that or its a strain on my hard drive read/ write. I'll have to take a couple videos of pvp to see if it's just a wvw issue for me.

  19. Hmm.. After I play this game I will re-visit this topic with fresh eyes. lol. Any idea why Ep 5 doesn't work on your PS4? Did you try deleting it and re-downloading just that ep?
  20. Life Is Strange looks good. Killing Floor 2 looks like an endless horde mode game tho.
  21. The cost for the rights to produce the anime in the US must be ridiculous for the prices to be as high as they are. I'd rather pay $7 for a one month subscription to Funi and marathon a crap load of series and then cancel my subscription. It still makes no sense to me tho. In comparison the actors in the Big Bang Theory all make at least $1 million per episode and thats just the actors, doesn't even count the cost of the production, music rights, etc.. and yet I can buy seasons 1-9 bluray boxset for $50. But that will only get me 2 seasons of Yu Yu Hakusho which cost way way way less to make and easily recovered its production costs over the last 20 years since its release.
  22. I started playing Mass Effect 1 this weekend. Since this game is so old, I will be using this topic to post updates on my progress of the game with spoilers as I come across them (new content for me, old for everyone else. ). Please don't spoil anything for me please. I just learned that mass effect is actually a means of FTL travel. I had no idea. I just figured it was a catchy scifi name for the series. I'm just past the initial mission and at the citadel right now. Saved the game right when I got there and haven't had the time to explore yet. I have some questions for all the Mass Effect vets here.. 1) Should I be actively equipping any and all gear to my squad mates as I come across stuff? I equipped a pistol on this one guy after I got it out of a crate, then he turned around to investigate something, then got shot and killed in a cutscene.. that pistol is now gone. x_x That was a cutscene death tho, what about my other squadmates? If they die is it permadeath too? I'll loose whatever upgrades they had equipped? 2) Should I be micromanaging combat like KOTOR 1? I know this game is made by the same dev and it really feels alot like a mixture of KOTOR's interface with more active combat. I was just treating it like an FPS, but then I realized the combat can be paused whenever with the space bar so I can order my squad to do things or use powers. 3) I picked infiltrator (i think thats what it was) because it has a sniper proficiency. I love sniping so it made sense for me to take this class. Its fun to kill people from a distance but I definitely miss not being able to hold breath to steady a shot. For anyone that knows, is infiltrator good in the late stages of the game or should I re-roll and go with something different since I'm not that far in? 4) Interact is the E button and using medi-gel packs is F.. Guild Wars 2 has conditioned me so much I keep using health packs at every damn container I try to open. x_x Should I save my health packs as much as possible or do they drop enough that I shouldn't be stingy with them? 5) Should I save my grenades for big enemies or throw them around as often as I want like in Uncharted? Do squad mates have grenades? or is it just me. I went into the space bar UI and didn't see any grenade options for my squadmates. Is that because they didn't have grenades at that time?
  23. LMAO! I just mentioned the spider-man reboots in the AoT topic. I'm burned out on alot of the Origin story movies too. Like if Superman gets rebooted again 5+ years from now I'll never watch it. Some characters shouldn't need origin stories anymore at this point. If they want to make a new X-Men movie at this point with a new Wolverine, they should just do it. Start the movie with them all fighting the sentinels within the first 5 minutes. People will see the new guy bust out his metal claws and everyone will know its Wolverine. Done. Get on with the plot. Instead, Fox will cast a new Wolverine and probably redo the entire origin story again because for some damn reason they think the entire fan base are idiots and can't realize who it is and what motivates them. Meanwhile at Marvel, the re-casted Bruce Banner/Hulk and didn't give a damn anymore about the previous Hulk movie. Well done Marvel. Guardians of the Galaxy did a better origin story with their characters than they did with Dr Strange. In GoG, they were all full power from start and the origin story was basically how they became a team together because of how their paths crossed through the major plot line.
  24. Looks like Marvel got a little inspiration from "Inception". I like what I'm seeing tho.
