  1. Sony needed to get their heads out of their asses in terms of cross play. I'm guessing they will fully embrace it since they'll use MS server infrastructure. And I'm glad they are doing that. PSN has always been garbage. At one point I had 200 mbps internet, now its 100 mbps... I've never seen a game or update from sony download even close to 30 mbps on my ps4. Its so damn slow.


  2. That Sonic should be burned. WTF were they thinking.. and I still don't get why the hell the Sonic movie has to be just him in the real world.. they could have made it a "live-action" movie like Lion King is "live action" and have it based in the video game world of Sonic the Hedgehog. Everyone focuses on how Sonic looks like an abomination, but honestly the entire movie looks like crap. I'm guessing Robotnick at the end of the trailer is going to be at the end of the movie and this entire mess of a film will be yet another origin story movie. Somehow Sonic got transported into the human world, has to get a bunch of rings, that are actually some super conductive new alien alloy that the US military is collecting for new weapons programs or some crap, and has to use those rings to get back to his planet. So it'll be Sonic and some guy that's helping him get back home E.T. style, mix some childish humor in there, have Sonic take out some military forces.. only a mad scientist can defeat him so they hire Jim Carry.. and by then theres 20 minutes left of the movie that might be decent.. then credits and a brief cameo of Tails looking worse than anything we've seen so far as he hints at a sequel. XD


  3. Wait even longer and after the wallpaper TVs the next step will be 48k contact lenses. The tech will be so advanced and small it can powered by your own eyeball heat and will be synced to your phone. Choose a video or movie to stream and your entire vision will be filled with life like imagery, full 3d, etc. Put in the earbuds and you're all set. Want to play a game, no problem, switch it over to the playstation app and grab a controller.


  4. 8k tv seems like a long way off from here, but definitely within the next 5 years of the expected new console's life span. I'd be surprised if the ps5 would give us 60 fps constantly on a 4k tv. For an 8k tv it'll probably support it but be lucky to hit 30 fps unless it drops settings lower. I say that because current graphics cards that could do 8k now are $1,000 by itself. Sony won't put that strong of a card into the ps5 and keep the price point down. And considering there's already dev kits of the ps5 out there for developers they're already set on what the specs are. Whatever strength they say the GPU is can be amazing for loading times for that spiderman game, but once all the games coming out are standard 4k I'm sure PC master race will declare the new consoles obsolete with in the first 6 months.


  5. I bet it's called Rise of Skywalker because it'll be revealed that Rey actually is a Skywalker, maybe even Luke's kid. The second movie did leave enough openings to fill in gaps for this third movie. When we see luke in the second movie he was living a hermit life like Yoda was on Dagobah and the flash backs we saw were of Luke middle aged. It could be revealed that before or during the establishment of his jedi academy he fell in love, maybe with Mara Jade from the books, had a kid, had a falling out with Mara, maybe never even knew of she was pregnant.. Lots of speculation here. Lol.. but they could make it happen in the movie. It would make sense for her to be a Skywalker, same with Kylo. And if palpatine is back they both may have to team up and rise up against him.. but then again it looked like kylo was reconstructing his Vader style helmet. And I could be completely wrong.

    The original trilogy and the prequel trilogy was all about the Skywalker lineage. It would only make sense for this movie to continue that. And all good things that come to an end always tie back into the beginning somehow. By bringing palpatine back and focusing on a Skywalker defeating him would bring the entire collection of movies to a good end. Then any squeals after that could have more free range.

    I did read that the next trilogy will be set in the old republic and I'm very glad for that. Instead of having to focus on specific blood lines or only a handful of force users we'll get movies with a variety of jedi, aliens, completely new plot lines, etc. 


  6. I'm surprised they're even doing a physical sale of the game if it's digital only. I only own about 6 or 7 ps4 games on disk. I've been buying digital only for ps4 and steam for years. Digital for ps4 mostly because my system was faulty and would spit out disks randomly. But ever since psn started doing actual decent digital sales years ago I stopped buying physical copies altogether except for bf5 that I bought on disk.

    There's been plenty of other games with no disks tho. I bought a couple sims 4 expansions for lady earlier this year and the physical boxes came with digital codes and no disks. That was PC version tho. Maybe it's more common with PC games.


  7. So Anthem's development was basically 6 years of making all the assets of the game and getting basic controller movements, menu, etc. Then frantically rushing the creation of a campaign, lore and actual gameplay design in the last 6 months to a year.. Sounds like Anthem truly was a clone of Destiny 1. Lol. And this is another example as to why I don't pre-order games any more. The more hype a game gets prior to its release generally means its garbage and the company is banking on pre-order sales and FOMO (fear of missing out). Only a few games will actually deliver on their hype. Borderlands 3 probably will. Last of Us 2 probably will. The next couple big games I expect to flop with massive hype will be Death Stranding and Cyberpunk 2077. After those games come out we'll get more behind the scenes stories about what happened to the development, why they had to cut corners, why we weren't given all the things we were promised, etc. etc.


  8. It's a shame they killed off jesus. He'd have had better potential to keep the show going as a leader. It feels like the show got bloated with characters with all the communities but they still kept a focus on the main group.. but now that there is no main group anymore I'm finding it hard to care for any character at this point. Daryl and Carol are the only decent characters left after michonne leaves which means they'll be pretty much unkillable without killing off the show. Alpha and Beta are just odd to me. Negan was an amazing character and the saviors made sense with how they lived and made others suffer. But the whisperers don't make sense to me. They have no quality of life, they never explain why any of them would actually want to live like they do. It's like they're all psycho but aside from alpha and beta there's no other characters in their group to relate with. At least with the saviors if you saw one of the lieutenants get killed you know it was some serious shit. But instead of having a hierarchy of characters as enemies it's all put on the shoulders of 2 characters alone. Alpha and Beta are just not strong enough of characters to keep that tension strong.


  9. I'm really surprised they built up Tara and Henry as much as they did this season only to kill them both off so abruptly. I didn't even realize their heads were on those spikes at first. And when they did the flash back it didn't even show their deaths. Seemed a bit rushed. I still don't understand why they are making a Rick trilogy movie. I could understand the actor wanted out... but then he signed up to do 3 tv movies based on wherever the hell that helicopter took him. This is the last season for Michonne to since Danai Gurira will be leaving.


  10. Everything was updated today. Looks like there was an issue with the sitemap causing search engine result issues. There's also a new giphy button in posts. Feel free to add gifs now. 

    ready lets go GIF by Leroy Patterson

    There's a few other features that have been updated but nothing major. I should be getting the themes back up soon to.

    That's what was covered in the movie. It's as if you've seen this movie. Lol.. I should probably read the manga. After the motorball tryouts they skipped all the motorball stuff because that was where the movie ended after the final scene with Hugo which would be the setup for a sequel. If they do a sequel they could cover all the motorball events in a flashback or just start the sequel movie with something like.. "after what happened with Hugo, I focused on motorball..." and then cover all the motorball stuff. Her age wasn't exactly stated but Ido told her she's roughly 300 years old at one point in the movie. And her new body was called Berserker and it has nano tech.

    You might actually like this movie. Lol.


  12. I watched Battle Angel Alita today. It was the most true anime to live action movie I've ever seen. I never read the manga so I can only assume the motorball stuff and her new ultra powerful body was part of the manga. Aside from that every scene that happened in the anime movie happened in this movie almost exactly. It's a shame it was PG13 but that's alright. It still had all the brutal deaths but the kill shots that were gruesome generally took place right off camera which was only a few times. Other times it was mostly a lack of blood to get around an R rating. Like slicing a guy into 5 parts is ok for pg13 when there's no blood flying everywhere. Overall I'm very pleased with how the movie played out and it was setup for a sequel. The movie does explain alot more about Alita than the anime does, like what she is, how old she is, etc.

    And the giant eyes that freaked everyone out before is nothing. I got used to it within the first couple minutes. The realy unique thing about this movie are all the cyborgs. There's no two cyborgs that are even remotely similar except for in 2 flash back scenes. Other than that a girl with giant eyes is nothing compared to a 10 foot tall guy with a shoulder width bigger than a semi truck or some guy that's larger than a SUV with multiple appendages with circular saws.

    Also I didn't see any sex appeal at all. Lmao. XD they made her look physically fit like she was in the anime. And she kicked ass. This was a great movie and I highly recommend it.


  13. Ouch. I feel bad for the devs that got laid off but at the same time their overall studio must have gone in a completely different direction than what was laid out to the consumers over a year ago. We were supposed to be getting another expansion released months from now and not only was there no announcement for one but it also sounds like it was never even being worked on. Whatever their other side projects were must have doomed them. It sounds like it was mostly a mobile game and some other game.. but with the NDA we'll never know. I just hope the other game that was canceled wasn't actually a new updated engine for GW2 or an actual GW3 sequel.


  14. I remember Destiny was supposed to be this huge plot driven game that expanded into the universe but instead became a game focused on grinding gear and raids and never leaving the solar system. Meh. People can blame activision all they want for how Destiny turned out, but in the end its still a stain on Bungie's reputation. I'd like to see Destiny get completely rebooted with a focus on a single player campaign.
