  1. I thought flying in battlefront 2 would have battlefield 1 controls and it was way different. I'm battlefront 2 it's basically all right analog stick for flying and the left analog is only really used for acceleration and deceleration. And there is no control setting to change the speed controls to trigger buttons. And there is a default setting to auto adjust the ships orientation to the horizon. Its extremely different and I guess it's supposed to simplify flying but man I'm horrible at it.

    I think EA finally learned their lesson and as a result, DICE has mostly fixed battlefront now. The new progression system is much much better. They removed all star cards from rng crates. Now crates will only contain cosmetic items. All heroes are unlocked by default. Each class, every hero and every ship has it's own progression system similar to how Battlefield 4's progression was. Play a class, level it up and that class gets a skill point. Use that skill point to unlock a low level star card. Play more and get higher levels to unlock higher level star cards, upgrade them, etc. All of which is class specific. Different weapons are unlocked in a similar fashion to BF4's assignments. Get x amount of kills with a specific gun to unlock another gun, etc. There is weekly timed events to unlock skins in game. This weekend is an event to unlock a Leia hoth skin. Its a pretty basic assignment for it too.. play 5 rounds of 3 different game modes each. So far I'm enjoying this game. I still haven't beaten the campaign and I've already been playing it for more than 5 hours (not counting my afk time, lol). The battle missions seem decent for offline game play. I'm still fresh in the multiplayer tho so I'm not sure how good the balance is just yet. But I can say I absolutely suck at flying. I played 7 matches of starfighter assault and I am horrible at this. This is one of those game modes that I would actually be much better with a mouse and keyboard.


  3. Reminds me of that old outer limits episode were everyone on the planet has to go thru a physical change to survive the intense radiation after the sun went thru a shift. I'm wondering if the trailer is purposefully hiding a larger plot line or if the entire movie is just him going thru the change and then going monster at the end.


  4.  I'm so glad Carl is dead. XD now I don't have to see that horrible hair anymore. XD it was such an emotional scene and I feel horrible for Michonne, but when I heard that gun shot I was happy. I'm a horrible person. XD

    Rick vs Negan in this last episode was pretty good. I'm surprised Maggie didn't warn that new woman about the saviors.

  5. 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. 


  6. 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. 


  7. 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.


  8. 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

  9. 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.


  10. 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. 


  11. 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. 


  12. 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.


  13. 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.


  14. 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. 😂
