    As far as I know there are no micro transactions.

    I'm back to playing Dark Souls as of today.
    I thought about naming my new female thief, Rodham after Hillary Rodham Clinton. But that seemed like an insult to thieves. Perhaps Rodham will be the name of my Dark Souls 2 female.
    My new female thief is now named Mjoll. She is named after Mjoll The Lioness from Skyrim. It also serves as a reminder that my ultimate goal is to get Ornstein's Armor. Though if Mjoll were real she'd be insulted as she hates The Thieves Guild.
    The major difference between Jenny & Mjoll will be the fact Jenny was a Glass Cannon.
    Personal Goals Achieved (Again)
    I defeated The Asylum Demon again & got it's Demon's Great Hammer. Though this time around I won't be leveling up my strength to wield it for a long time. After raising my Faith to 14 I went back to the Valley Of Drakes to pillage the corpses around that Undead Dragon. (I decided to permanently lose 6 Souls.) I'm glad to have Astora's Straight Sword again. I don't remember using it last time but I'm also glad to have the Dragon Crest Shield again. Then I used the (consumable) Souls on me so I could get my strength up to 10. I easily bought all of the key items of the Male Undead Merchant in Undeadburg again. The Bottomless Box is a necessity when you don't have a way to sell items. I once again murdered a Crystal Lizard in Undeadburg for Twinkling Titanite. Upgraded Astora's Straight Sword to +2. Now I just one hit kill all Hollows unless I need to shield break them first. I bought a Spear.... Because I might need it later & didn't want to wait for it to be a "Rare Drop". Had to raise my strength to 11. Current Personal Goals
    Raise Vitality to the 30 or 50 soft cap. Raise Endurance to the 40 soft cap. Upgrade spear then armor if I get enough Titanite Shards. Go through Blighttown. Most likely defeat Maneater Mildred. And upgrade spear then armor if I get enough Large Titanite Shards. Remember to equip the Crimson set I will find once I'm at the first bonfire in The Great Hollow. If it doesn't prevent curse I'll hopefully have enough health to fight ghosts in New Londo. Where I will hopefully find the Cursebite Ring & remove curse. Hope that raising my Strength to 11 to equip a Spear to fight Basilisks was worth it. Farm for Twinkling Titanite at Ash Lake. (Maybe I'll need to defeat that Hydra there so that might be my first mini boss fight in this play through.) And maybe Tail Cut the Stone Dragon for a sword I won't be using anytime soon. After all of that I guess I debate whether I defeat the Undead Dragon in the Valley Of Drakes, Haval The Rock in Undeadburg, or both. (Both seems like a great idea for making victory laps around the areas!) Also remember to defeat Halberd Black Knight in Darkroot Basin as it's near a Bonfire I'll be using.

    Everything that was in that video was also in the beta version I got. Hopefully more people will play Big City Stories since it isn't tied to PS Home like Home Tycoon was.
    Purely my experience with Big City Stories so far.
    Plenty of NPCs & my avatar's head tend to clip through car roofs. My avatar's head clipping issue was fixed when I made it shorter in height. Its easier to run over zombies than shoot them. There's suppose to be ammo I can find, but I never found it. A Gas Station is a must for refueling cars during this activity. I should probably try this activity again with a topless car. I don't know if zombies can kill me but I doubt it. Also you can't run over people who aren't zombies. Some small objects I placed in the game clipped through the ground. I found this out sometime after trying to pull a Chris Christie at the bridge entrance. Big City Stories > Home Tycoon
    Naming The City & customizable signs. (Such as Here Lies Andy Peperoni & Cheese) Buildings can be upgraded. Driving isn't behind a paywall like it originally was in Home Tycoon. You can "borrow" any car you see driving around. And even make a little money as an Uber Driver. Though being an Uber Driver isn't as fun I'd hope. I was hoping for something more like Crazy Taxi. Collecting Cash (or Electricity) in the overhead map doesn't require workers. But it now feels a bit more or less tedious. Hospitals & Zoos (& maybe Nuclear Power Plants) are free. One of the new cars driving around, the Crusader, has easily became my favorite. (Its the one that looks like a Modern Day Muscle Car) Home Tycoon didn't have a Zombie Activity. The Water Tower isn't red so I can stop imagining Rico Rodriguez destroying it. Big City Stories < Home Tycoon
    Big City Stories lacks the floating suitcases that randomly gave cash or workers. I don't think they're coming back. Big City Stories lacks Helicopters. I don't know if they're coming back or being replaced. Big City Stories (Currently) lacks Activities & by extension actual story missions for the Fire Department & Hospital. I miss that loud mouth Fire Fighter already. Currently there are no Sports Stadiums. Home Tycoon had Football, Football (Soccer), & Olympic Stadiums. The Former 2 you had to actually buy. If they come back I expect them to be expansions. There are no "illegal" street races (they were part of a Home Tycoon expansion). But maybe they'll comeback. Part of me thinks the Garage Mechanic might replace the Vin Diesel parody character. I miss the bickering that use to happen between the pro-environment business & anti-environment business. That's probably gone because it was easier to side with the one that was better for the environment. Housing in Big City Stories doesn't generate money like it did in Home Tycoon. Big City Stories doesn't have a building that ties into Novus Prime. Big City Stories replaced Home Tycoon's Giant Black Panther with an Elephant when it comes to the Zoo. Beyond that I had 2 pics from Home Tycoon. One was with The Zoo's Big Black Panther. The other one was The "Nude" Beach. In that last pic you can barely see The Novus Prime Building near The Town Hall with Donut Shop behind it.
    You can find those pics in the 2nd link to this link once you scroll down to "Re: Epic Avatar Pix: 10 Pic Trophy" as I've posted about these pics before.

    Its a Free To Play game that is still in Beta. Its based off of Home Tycoon which you could only play on PS Home. I got my Beta Key on Friday, but didn't start playing until after 12 AM ET. Its still kind of buggy but I'm enjoying it about as much as I did Home Tycoon.
    It differs greatly from Home Tycoon however by how building effect an area instead of a whole city. Electricity as far as I can tell acts the same way as money. You collect it in a certain area & later spend it. Workers are still the most boring part that they brought back from Home Tycoon to BCS. Whether its better or worse Workers regenerate at certain buildings. So its best not to destroy the worker building you're given unless you intend on spending real money.
    Graphically it looks better than Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (as in without mods). But then again SR2 & PSH look better than ES IV. Comparing BCS to just HT I'd say overall that BCS looks better. Well except for BCS avatar creation which looks kind of goofy.
    There are features coming to BCS according to options that aren't available yet. But I won't be typing about those until they're actually available.
    I might not spend any real money on BCS until its available to everyone as I rather not risk wasting my money.

    I think this is just Nintendo slowly losing its ego it gained from over 30 years ago when it was declared The Savior Of Console Gaming. Sure Microsoft & Sony have their own problems when they think they can control the gaming industry. But Nintendo also had ego problems back when it was Snes vs. Genesis. IF Nintendo could outlive Microsoft & Sony in the console market part of me would expect certain games to become PC exclusive. This is partly because supposedly its harder to program of Nintendo consoles & its past with censoring games like Mortal Kombat.
    Everything that has happened from Japan or Nintendo "Saving" the console industry has resulted in Butterfly Effects. This is in part because consoles had made gaming convenient.
    The Sonic fan base existing is simply from Sega needing a mascot to compete against Mario. The ESRB's creation was fueled mostly by console games that non-gamers were outraged by. Sony wanting revenge on Nintendo over PlayStation. Sega's even faster fall out of the console market because PlayStation was a better competitor. Thus resulting in Sonic Fanatics need to let everyone know Sonic can defeat Mario. Microsoft being afraid that Sony would make an OS via PlayStation thus creating Xbox to compete. "Bro Gamers" becoming the average market that Sony & Microsoft would cater to. And Gamer Gate that has happened over the controversies existed before & after Bro Gamers.
    Part of these Butterfly Effects go right back into PC Gaming as Console Fanatics were declaring PC Gaming to be Dead. Then you had PC Gamers declaring Steam to be the savior of PC Gaming. Microsoft has now been making shifty moves to show it has been dedicated to PC Gaming. Steam Machine's Linux based existence for fear that Microsoft would force Steam out of the gaming industry.
    And finally the plausibly that the worst that might've come from all of this is Steam Greenlight & whatever butterfly effects that will have. Though I'm sure something like Steam Greenlight would've came into existence simply because Smart Phones were going to make gaming convenient anyway.
    ....
    Now if you excuse me I'm going look at artwork that sexually objectifies Female Khajiits, Argonians, etcetera. Why? Because nowadays from the neck up is way more important to me. Plus anything with a human like face would probably give me a migraine if I stare at it too long.

    Saints Row 4 didn't make sense & neither does Gat Out Of Hell. But if you play Gat Out Of Hell before Saints Row 4 expect a major spoiler. On the other hand if you don't play Gat Out Of Hell before Agents Of Mayhem you might spoil one of the endings to Gat Out Of Hell involving Brimstone. Although that was probably already spoiled by this year's E3.
    I would be barely looking forward to getting Gat Out Of Hell for free on PS4 if I didn't already buy it bundled with SR4. And I wouldn't have bought that if I didn't want SR4 on PS4 before I got it free for Xbox One. I don't know who to be more mad at. Microsoft for being desperate enough to give out better free games on Xbox One. Or Sony for being able to get away with free mediocre games on PS4.

    It doesn't feel like a Resident Evil game. But its way better than Resident Evil 4. I think the only reason to why I played the demo was because I've permanently missed out on the PT hype.
    My dislikes for it however are
    It basically has the same ending that can happen in different rooms. You can't follow the other guy. Dummy Finger has no purpose. the idea of Ghosts being a part Resident Evil.  
  10. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Myk JL in Skyrim on PS4 & Xbox One! .... also fallout stuff.   
    With an exception to Xbox, (Nintendo,) & MMOs I tend to buy games I'm addicted to more than once. I have games for PC I know I can't play due to my current PC being weak or those games not being able to run on my Steam Machine. I'll someday have a laptop powerful enough to run all my current PC games. Assuming that future OS I'm being forced into can run old games.
    The Skyrim Special Edition is also coming to PC for free if you already own it & all of its DLC. But even then there are plenty of mods that make Skyrim look better than what Bethesda just showed. I wonder if any of those graphics mods will be coming to consoles or if they're left out along with Adult Only mods.

    I have the legendary edition of Skyrim on Steam, but since my graphics card couldn't handle it with the high resolution textures I haven't played it yet. I doubt I'll get this on ps4 because I already own it on PC. Even with the enhanced graphics on ps4 I don't see how it'll even compare to the PC version.

    I remember breaking my PS3's Blu-Ray Player & how I was just mad I couldn't just buy a digital copy through PSN. I could've bought a digital copy through Xbox Live, but decided to wait if Skyrim ever came to PSN. Now it probably will & I will also probably get the Lesbian Khajiit couple I wanted back in 2011 through mods!

  15. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Myk JL in Dark Souls   
    The majority of time I've put into the game has been Soul Farming so I could raise my Stats. As Stats get higher my (overall) level gets higher which then makes any stat I want to raise cost more souls.
    After getting Cursed by a Basilisk in The Great Hollow (hoping to farm for Twinkling Titanite from Man Eater Shells at Ash Lake) I finally had my Sad Affleck Moment. I thought Curse & Transient Curse were the same; They aren't. I kept getting myself killed by Ghosts while trying to find Ingward in New Londo.
    I have ultimately erased my Thief, Jenny out of pure boredom. I don't find Dark Souls "hard" but I just don't have the patience to level up anymore. Also I can't name my next Dark Souls character "A Piñata" because spaces & accents aren't available.

    If you could do that in any game weapons would probably be obsolete. Plus I wonder how would that impact Dark Souls Story & Gameplay.
    Story wise if humans could create such fire then why would anyone worry about the end of The Age Of Fire?
    Gameplay wise you probably defeat everything & indirectly cause a lot of Sins. PvP invasions would more annoying as you'd have to be the first one to kill someone with that power. And raises questions like if you destroy a certain painting how does that impact the Painted World Of Ariamis?
    After doing all that research on magic my current weapon stats goal will be
    Strength: 57 (Complete) Dexterity: 24 (Complete) Intelligence: 27 (After Faith) Faith: 29 (Next Goal) If I ever work on magic it'll probably be when Attunement is the only stat I have left to level up.
    Personal Goals Achieved
    I got a new Armor Set that isn't a starter set or from someone who isn't a (mini) boss. The Elite Knight Set in Darkroot Garden. I already got it up to +3 with Titanite Shards. I easily defeated every Mini Boss in Undead Parish. I only remember dying once to the Prowling Demon there. I got a Tower Shield & a Black Knight Greatsword. I didn't get A Fang Boar Helm like I wanted. But such a Helm would've been temporary for me until I got Ornstein's Armor Set. I met Andrei & Oswald. Shortcut wise I now have an Elevator that goes between Undead Parish & Firelink Shrine. I also got that ladder down that leads to the first bonfire you can find in Undead Burg. I learned the hard way that I now have a bridge to farm 555 Souls from. Because I lost over 10,000 Souls trying to run in the opposite direction that the Hellkite Dragon is perched. I freed some guy who was going to escape anyway....

    Poor Brendon Fraser. If only Dudley Do-Right didn't fail. He could've gone on to be Tom Slick, Roger Ramjet, etcetera. Then they could've had that one movie that would've tied all these characters together in one movie starring nothing but Brendon Fraser. It probably wouldn't be as successful as The Avengers, but it would've been better than Batman Versus Superman Dawn Of Justice.
    Oh well, here's hoping the next Mummy reboot is Rated R.
    ....
    Well unless it ties into that crappy PG-13 Dracula movie that is or was suppose to be the start of an Avengers like Monster Movie. Then I can only hope it fails.

    Personal Goals Achieved
    Though this should've been an edit I did get my Faith up to 14 on the day I posted it here. I got my Thief's Armor up to +3, but I'm uncertain if I'll upgrade it more due to needing a large Titanite Shards. I defeated Haval The Rock after I was getting tired of leveling my dexterity at 20. My Strength is 57. I did this by running back upstairs to the door in Undead Burg. Haval will try to stay in the tower. So I was usually able to attack him without worrying of counter attacks. Thanks to some Twinkling Titanite I got from murdering a Crystal Lizard nearby the fog door in Haval's tower I was able to upgrade Astora's Straight Sword to +2. And after defeating Haval once I got into Darkroot Basin I found another Crystal Lizard to murder. That Twinkling Titanite would get my Astora's Straight Sword to +3. I defeated The Black Knight in Darkroot Basin. I was able to do this by heading up toward Darkroot Garden. One area of the path gets too narrow & causes this black knight to run away. that then leaves enough time to use an Estus Flask. I'm now able to enter the Valley Of Drakes from Darkroot Basin instead of just New Londo. Personal Goals Set Aside
    I've decided to set Defeating the Undead Dragon in the Valley Of Drakes aside. There are plenty of Bosses & Minibosses in Darkroot Basin that I also intend to save for later. Until I get a weapon that requires Intelligence I'll probably move on to leveling up Endurance, Vitality, & Resistance. When I do level it up I might stop at 27, 31, or 49. Basically one level before Moonlight Greatsword, Tin Crystallization Catalyst, or White Dragon Breath. Current Goals
    With my Strength at 57 I won't be leveling that up again until I get Smough's Hammer in NG+1. So I'm still getting my Dexterity up to 24 (one level before Dark Silver Tracer & Gold Tracer). I'm uncertain if I should stop leveling up my Faith by one level at 29 (Grant), or 49 (Sunlight Spear). Currently debating with myself
    I'm don't want to defeat the Taurus Demon any time soon. So I'm trying to pick between going through Darkroot Garden or Blighttown. Whether or not I will ever use magic.

    I did watch the original power rangers series all those year ago, but never in the last 10 years have I ever thought "Damn, I wish I could get a new power rangers for my age group". Instead I wanted to see a grown up live action Voltron instead. I'm surprised Michael Bay isn't directing this.
    My favorite portrayal of the Power Rangers ever was in one of my all time favorite cartoons Megas XLR:
    http://kisscartoon.me/Cartoon/Megas-XLR/Season-02-Episode-006-S-Force-S-O-S?id=14210
    The 'S-Force' showed up in 2 or 3 episodes. I miss this show so bad. I wish it'd have gotten more seasons. If any giant robot show need a live action movie adaption all these years later, it'd be Megas XLR.

    So based on the trailer alone, is Keanu that smart or did someone else set all this up? I mean the plot feels pretty convenient.
