    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 guess this continues the argument.

    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.

    As much as I liked Extra Credits, Extra Credits has a way of defending or promoting AAA Games in a way that I'm uncertain if they're playing Spin Doctor or are just too calm.
    I think my main problem with this Extra Credits video is they talk about how inflation hurts the game industry but fail to note that inflation has hurt gamers who live on minimum wage.

    I've gotten use to using Windows Defender which I'm sure is up to date.
    But if it isn't....
    ....
    Damn.... Am I going to have to start looking at 3rd Party Antivirus again?
    Because the last one was slowing down my PC until I uninstalled it as far as I remember.
    I think it was Avast or something that was recommended to me by Firefox at one point in time.
     
    I also still kind of have Malwarebytes but it uninstalled itself. And I don't see a point in intentionally spending money on it if Microsoft is also willing to protect my PC from Malware for free. At best when Malwarebytes (Premium) was still there it blocked me from going to websites that were possibly harmful to my PC.

    I feel bad for how 9 News attacked P Platers, but at the same time feel like P Platers might as well be Google Street View.

    With tomorrow being the Winter Solstice I guessed today would be a good enough day to post this animation.

    Once upon a time a video like this would've appeared in The Escapist Thread.
    ....
    But the escapist had screwed themselves over years ago with their changing their video player & downsizing.
    It never felt appropriate for me to just make a thread about The Jimquisition until now.
    And even then it still feels a little awkward because.... Oh, Hey! There is the wallpaper I use!.... By the process of elimination.

    Worst case scenario I save some money by seeing fewer R Rated Movies.

    With a name like Wade Watts I expect his parody version to be named Slade Slots who has an addiction to Loot Boxes.

    It looks neat but I'm confused as to why Batman says he's back in the Middle Ages.
    I always thought Middle Ages referred to a large point in time where authority preferred Might Makes Right over Intelligence. This isn't to say that Japan didn't have a Middle Age. Rather it is to say its confusing to see Batman go back in to protect what should be Middle Age Criminals from other Criminals.
    ....
    On the other hand Bruce Wayne is a Billionaire who secretly beats up poor people who have turned to the life of being henchmen.

    I'm not shocked that they're making a Rampage movie
    I'm shocked that Uwe Boll didn't ruin making a Rampage movie based on the Video Game.
    Also I'm kind of disappointed they changed the origins of George, Ralph, & Lizzy.

    I still own my PS3, Xbox 360, & Steam Machine. Games With Gold & PlayStation Plus still give out games for their last gen consoles. So I'm still going to spend $120 a year on console gaming.
    Someday I may or may not become an actual PC Gamer. Because I like my old hardware too much to upgrade as soon as possible.
    And I might still buy DLC as those don't turn into limited time offers like Micro Transactions.
