  1. I do want to see this movie but I'm not interested enough to see it in the theaters. Mostly because of two things. I love the new tomb raider games but that timed exclusivity bull shit for rise of the tomb raider being on Xbox for a solid year before ps4 resulted in me waiting a year to play the game and a year of my interest in it being destroyed. Just like i waited to play the game i can wait a year to watch this movie on cable at this point. The second issue for me is that Alicia Vikander doesn't physically look like Lara Croft from the new games. I didn't care for Angelina Jolie in the original tomb raider movies but when I look at pictures comparing her lara croft to the new one, Angelina's looks like she could kick her ass easily. 

  2. I lucked out and saw it right before it went down. I like what i saw. Crafting armor and weapon upgrades looked really nice. Reminded me of tomb raiders crafting setup at camps. 

  3. Battlefront 2 is on sale this weekend so I broke down and bought it digitally on ps4. $31.99 for the deluxe edition doesn't seem that bad at all for a campaign even if its a bit short. I'll focus on playing the campaign and try the multiplayer out with my brothers.

  4. I've been playing this the last couple days. I just finished mission 5. The combat system is nice and the stealth mechanics are good, but I'm loosing my patience quite often. I'll usually miss one guy, he'll spot me and ruin all my stealth progress or potentially get an ass load of people to shoot and kill me, thus making me loose an hour of progress. I've gotten into the habit of fultoning out a large chunk of people, running out of the area to trigger a checkpoint save and then running back in to keep going. Its all too time consuming. Now when someone sees me I say "f*ck it" grab my assault rifle, kill them, run off a bit and then snipe everyone else. I'm going to start deploying with an RPG to destroy all the radio communicators first from now on. Aside from the prologue I haven't gotten a rank over C.

    Parts of this game's plot makes no sense to me. I don't get why I'm still in Afghanistan. I'm guessing the answer is in the cassette tapes I've been neglecting to listen to. I have a full crew now with excess in the waiting room. For most of these missions I don't understand the logic as to why Snake does all this YOLO style. I now have a small army but they all just sit on their asses at motherbase while I go out and do stuff. I heard that eventually they can go out on missions and make us cash, but even then it doesn't make sense to me why Snake doesn't do all these missions with a full assault or stealth/tactical team. I get spotted almost every mission, probably because I suck at this or I'm just not used to the endless enemy respawning, but considering the amount of gun fights I get into, screw stealth. lol. I'd rather have my own swat team come in.

    I keep using that fulton on everything and its getting a bit tedious. I have no idea where all these sheep are going. lmao. I keep launching them into the air and I never see them again. I caught a brown bear that mauled the hell out of me on my first attempt. That was pretty messed up watching it dangling by 1 foot attached to a balloon. wtf. XD

  5. After it was announced that EA scraped a single player star wars game I figured all future star wars games would be like battlefront 2 and I stopped looking at potential future titles or even reading articles about any star wars game development. It's a shame EA went so damn moment hungry with the rng microtransactions. All i wanted was a game exactly like battlefield 4 except made as star wars. If Activision gets it they'll probably throw it at blizzard and let them make an Overwatch inspired shooter and an RTS style statecraft game and that'd be awesome. Although Square Enix would be a much better fit imo. They did publish the newer tomb raider games and they know how to make great single player mmos and action games.

  6. Looks like aliens are terraforming the planet and making monsters at the same time, which is a combination of awesome to me.

    Now for a brief rant.. The tv commercials were better than this trailer. In the commercials it looks like she is the pro going in to figure out wtf is going on, but in the trailer she's only going in to save her husband because Hollywood still doesn't think a female character can actually have professional motivation to do shit on their own without attaching a man to the woman's goals. 

  7. Orcs arriving through a portal. Lol. And giants that have to be killed at the base of the neck. These developers must like Warcraft and attack on titan. It looks fun but the camera seems to have a bit to much motion for me. 

  8. Wasn't carnage an offspring of venom? I hate how marvel and DC have rebooted all their properties so many times over the years. I think there's been at least 20 different incarnations of Spider-Man and the different characters involved in it over all the years.

    Btw watch the movie "Life". A bit of a spoiler but it could be seen as a prequel to this Venom movie.. or maybe Cloverfield.

  9. Same for me. That's pretty surprising. I don't know if I'm all to interested in buying this tho since I was never into grand theft auto. But I might drop $1 to try out that max payne game.

  10. Hmm. A trailer for Venom without Venom in it. Wasn't Venom's origins completely entangled with Spider-Man? Shouldn't a movie about Venom's origins actually be Spider-Man homecoming 2 our whatever it would be called for a sequel since the symbiote originally attaches to Spider-Man, turns him into black Spider-Man, mutates itself with Spider-Man's DNA to retain all the spider powers before it gets removed and then attaches to Eddie Brock to make Venom. Instead we get a trailer for a possible Mad Max prequel. 😂

  11. It's really hard for me to accept games getting price increases when most games are now sold for 50% off within 3-5 months of release outside of Nintendo games. Battlefront 2 came out for $60, and 2 months later it was on sale for $25. Same with mass effect andromeda. Steam sales and humble bundles drop games even cheaper. I don't know about anyone else but it's desenstized me to the value of the games and their development costs. If games truly cost so much to make and should cost the consumer more to compensate then those same games shouldn't be dropping in price so substantially in such a short amount of time. It isn't just games that flop either. Other major games drop in price quite fast too. If games jump up to $75 a piece or more, I'll just wait for their price to drop back down to half again within 3-6 months of their release like i do now. way back in the day I remember games hardly ever going on sale for 50% off unless it was a door buster sale on black Friday. If games are going to cost more then they should be able to retain their value longer than what they do now.

  12. The trailer for this looks great to me. Just like you said, ghost in the shell meets blade runner was the exact vibe I was getting from the preview. I was going to watch the first ep last night but ended up watching that new Open House Netflix horror/thriller movie. It was ok but not amazing. I'll watch the first ep of this later today.

  13. I don't agree with the inflation argument. Sure inflation has been happening but wages have not been increasing at the same rate, at least for me it sure hasn't. There's alot of products that haven't gone up in price in over a decade. Milk, bread and eggs still cost the same as in 2006. Yes it's not a fair comparison of eggs to video game development but some things we are used to being a specific price.

    On the other hand the price of a movie ticket has almost doubled since 2006, but ppl will still go to the movies. Once a movie ticket starts hitting the $20 mark I bet ppl will go to a hell of a lot less movies especially since everyone has to watch 30 minutes of trailers and commercials before the movie even starts as it is. But movies have something to offer a video game doesn't when it comes to piracy. If someone buys a movie ticket they buy an experience that won't happen again after a certain point in time. Being able to watch that movie in a theater with amazing sound and a giant screen. But a video game doesn't offer an experience like that to counter piracy. If someone pirates a game they have the same experience as the person that bought the game on release. The fact that going to a movie is something you can't recreate at home is why ppl pay the price of a ticket with current inflation rates. But if video games kept raising their prices then piracy would most like rise right along with it negating any extra profits they might have gotten from those higher prices. Mobile gaming has proved that the real cash cow is to get as many ppl playing the game as possible and then sell the microtransactions.

  14. I tried watching this review, but at 45 minutes I could just re-watch most of Bright again. lol. I skipped around it but she does make a good point at the 30 minute+ mark that I completely agree with. Theres no way in hell that in the history established in the movie, a war 2,000 years ago with a dark lord, that the world would have evolved into the exact same world we have now except with gangster orcs. wtf.

  15. Its been a week since I got this update done and my pc would freeze at least once a day afterwards. I can only assume it was because of this patch. Microsoft has apparently been pulling the patch because it's been causing freezing/rebooting issues for all PCs and not just AMD cpus. I did end up resolving the reboot issue. I had to go to dell's website (my main pc is a Dell), got their driver update utility program, scanned my pc and I had a Intel Rapid Storage driver out of date. Once that was updated my PC freezing issues were fixed. Its been 3 days now and I haven't had a single freeze/reboot issue. If anyone else is having an issue like this, update your intel rapid storage driver and it should hopefully fix it so you don't have to uninstall the windows update patch.
