     I'm so glad Carl is dead. now I don't have to see that horrible hair anymore. 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.
    Rick vs Negan in this last episode was pretty good. I'm surprised Maggie didn't warn that new woman about the saviors.

    I'll still go see this, but the reviews are mixed and its tanking already.  Alicia Vikander is a pretty girl, but honestly I was never sold on her look. Shes just too petite and short for the roll. Her body has limits to how much muscle she could fill out with, and she looks very young. I feel bad because I watched some behind the scenes and she really put in a lot of work out time and grueling stunts to make the movie. While Angelina Jolie was picked because of her sex appeal, she's 3 inches taller and looked older, even though she was four years younger when she did the first movie. Jolie filled the roll of a more sexual Lara Croft and looked the part. Vikander doesn't really look the part of the new Lara Croft to me. Shes wearing the same outfit, but the more board shoulders and toned biceps aren't there.
    Maybe it shouldn't matter, and in any other movie it maybe wouldn't. But for a video game movie, you gotta be believable as the character, or you lose all the fanboys/fangirls.

    Apparently this is up too early so it may not be up when you try to view this.

    It will probably be free sometime next year. Its won best soundtrack at just about every award event except one I think. I have almost 60 hours into it. I still load it up so I can eventually get to level 99 and fight the secret boss. The music is just down right therapeutic when roaming around the map.
    I couldn't pick a favorite track, the whole damn thing is a masterpiece.

    The price to make these 32 bags are outrageous. Inventory space isn't a vanity item. They really should have more ways to get these runes of holding in the next map. Spreading out the mat farm across multiple LWS4 maps would be a great way to keep them relevant. Having to drop 100g on a gamble to get these is stupid.

    This is a great lineup. Bloodborne, Ratchet and Clank and Mighty No. 9. And in 1 year there will be no more free games released for ps3 and vita.

    The best thing you can do is destroy all the communications first to limit the back up. Mark every enemy, even the trucks that drive off stay marked when they come back or you see them somewhere else. Suppressed sniping, and blowing up radio towers and running off until alert cools down is what I did. If I got spotted  I basically murdered everyone. Upgrading your D Walker is top priority as its the best getaway vehicle. The scouting head was supremely useful. I don't think it works for hostage extraction though, You can't toss them on it and drive away if I remember correctly.
    The game on a whole is very similar. Later it will get a bit tougher with large armored vehicles and the damn chopper trying to kill you. But for most of the time its your own pace. Then there was one mission that I recall that wasn't your own pace and was very annoying. I remember having to follow a truck without being seen and also not letting it get too far away. I forgot why but I just remember failing it multiple times.

    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.

    I doubt Activision or Ubisoft is the answer. But sadly that's almost all there is. COD: Star Wars here we come.

    Eh, thats what happens when every few years you lose the #2 burger chain spot to a company with a lot fewer stores, but better food and better customer service (Wendy's)... you gotta get behind every trending political statement to try to lure people that agree with it to try your subpar microwaved hamburger. There are few places of business I despise more consistently than BK. In the 17 years I've earned my own income to eat where I've wanted too, I've known BK to have the same terrible service and food in every state I've lived in, and every city I've worked in. I swear if I ever walked into a place and they punched my burger (their bully campaign), I would have walked out and flipped off the camera guy. Either all of these ad campaigns are staged even though it says actual guests, or people had to wait even longer than the normal long time it takes to have your order taken. You're not going to teach me anything, you're just going to lose my business. I came to eat not be preached too. Post a statement on the internet, or in the paper about it.

    I feel like the next time I go to BK I should order Chicken Fries & a Chicken Sandwich.

    It will hopefully be better than General Zod's plot from Man Of Steel.
    Gender swapped Mario? Which is basically Super Princess Peach. I'm not trying to defend what they did. If anything they already had a good plot. Then someone demanded the ability to ship characters for the sake of shipping characters.

    How disappointing can reality get when "Does Not Include Micro-Transactions" isn't a big enough selling point?
    Sure I hope they succeed, but I'm not giving them my money for something I still find generic.

    As far as I know Carnage has always been the offspring of Venom.
    I thought Life starring Ryan Reynolds ruined a Vin Diesel movie I was day dreaming about where Dominic Toretto lives his Life one spin at a time. On the other hand I wanted to believe San Andreas starring The Rock was an alternate timeline where Lex Luthor succeeded in making beachfront property.

    If I remember correctly Spider-Man's Black Suit from Secret Wars. (And might've been based on a female character with a black spider suit, but I can't confirm that to be true.) Both Spider-Man: The Animated Series & Spider-Man 3 never really wanted to delve into the whole Venom origins story so it shouldn't be a surprise that Spider-Man can be cut from that story too.
    As far as Venom's powers go it can be simply based off of Venom's obsession with Spider-Man. Like how Carnage is obsessed with the T-1000 stabbing weapons because Carnage is attached to a murderer.
    Now let me tell you how Ant-Man's origin makes zero sense without Atom from DC.
    That was just sarcasm about Ant-Man. You don't need DC's Atom in order to tell Ant-Man's story.

    I watched every episode of this, and although it had it's low points at the start. I'm glad I stuck with it. I think they spent too much time introducing the characters. I can't remember exactly when the show took off, but it was probably around ep 4 or 5 when each episode had me waiting in anticipation for what was going to happen next. It's way more political drama than battle heavy, but the plot twists were really good even if I called a few before they happened.

    I'm just going to point out that Battlefront 2 was a bad example, it's price drop was brought on entirely by the bad press it was getting for it's mishandling of loot boxes and EA's shady business practices. Steam always drops prices but those price drops are only for certain events (like the Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring sales. Generally most games stick to full price unless Valve decides to drop it (its generally not a publisher call when a business runs a sale)). Humble Bundle is a special case, almost all money for those sales goes towards charity if chosen to. Most publishers make very little to no money off of it (I know I place most of the money to charity when I buy a bundle, with very little going to the publishers and Humble Bundle itself) and this is by choice to try and improve their reputation to gamers.
    Waiting isn't a bad thing, it's what most of our generation does now when it comes to buying games. As I said above I've been doing it since the $60 hike back in 2005 and I buy a lot less games now. If you don't want to pay full price that's your choice as a consumer but honestly a raise in prices is not uncalled for. There are plenty of gamers out there that will pay $75+ for a game and they'll do it day 1, a price hike would not hurt the industry as much as everyone thinks it will (it'll be a blow that's for sure but it won't kill it). With the shift to multiplayer only games now you won't see many games that will retain their value longer then you deem it to. Single player games are becoming non-existent now unless you're in the market for indie games (which are always reasonably priced) because, like DX pointed out, companies can't currently make their money back on a game thats's one and done with no DLC or map packs to keep money rolling in. Sadly the value of a game is what you deem it to be and it always will.

    They probably should cost more, but they can't. If not enough people are willing to pay $100 for a game, then you cant sell it at that price or you don't have a business. That is where the problem lies. That's why EA is getting out of the liner story gaming business and focusing only on games they can monetize post launch. People can be convinced to pay $100-250 for a game if they get DLC and some art books and statues. Its interesting how that works... but most of the time those types of games need to be established series or have insane hype.
    I could see myself paying $75 for a base game so long as its not bullshit. That's me though. The higher you go in price, mistakes and bombs are going to hurt more, and cost consumer confidence faster. No one is willing to take that chance yet. The same goes for consoles. They're always going to be limited until people are willing to pay $500. We live in a world where people get triggered over every small thing they perceive as getting taken advantage of over. And that sentiment becomes infectious on Reddit. Sometimes its jusitifed, but when its not, the results are terrible. (I watched my favorite game's expac get ruined over shit like this).
    The thing I don't want to see is "early access" become the norm. I think that's a bunch of bullshit.
