  1. I didn't know who BJ Blazkowicz was since I didn't play the last game, so I didn't know why it was a big deal he is going to be in Quake.
  2. http://trib.al/SUZN7Vp burn.
  3. I'm sure there will be a agile light class. That's what I wanted to see. It would be cool if there was more than 3 as well. Or at least 3 with a shit ton of configurations. Ah, we'll probably never get Mechwarrior 2/Armored Core type level of tinkering, but one could only dream. One minor detail I missed in the original watch, (which was at work I've been waiting all day to see the gameplay) was the fact that even though the other player looted the chest, the player we were viewing the perspective of, also go the contents of the chest. That's really nice. I'm sure it has a limitation via AOE radius, but it beats saying "hey there is a chest over here" and then having to wait for everyone to grab it. oooh, and I'm glad Arekkz is going to cover this game.
  4. If it sticks on one planet with fast travel it would def be a lot better than just a few maps on different planets. I also like how your suit is the class instead of the character. Apparently you can own more than one suit. The Ranger is all purpose and the Colossus that the other character has is obviously the heavy. I look forward to seeing more.
  5. Not gonna lie, this looks pretty cool. As long as they don't change this loot systems to some troll you have to pay tribute too. No wonky faces. Graphically this was done by Bioware's A-team. As Strider said, ME:A was all rushed in its last 18 months. Most games are done before then and they spend the last 18 months polishing and reviewing. It's game director left half way through prior to even that as they were trying to make it like No Man's Sky originally. The video came out yesterday from Kotaku detailing what went wrong and it makes a lot of sense.
  6. What sucks is we won't get to see Viceral's or Respawn's game because it's "Battlefront" year. Wtf Viceral's game isn't even a MP shooter.
  7. I'll use this very old topic for shits and giggles... this is like a chronicle of how long this game has been in development.
  8. http://www.vg247.com/2017/06/11/star-wars-battlefront-2-multiplayer-classes-are-exactly-what-this-game-needed/ Yeah, no thanks. Unless they put a cap on how many of each class can be on a team, it's going to be BF1 all over again with everyone thinking they're a pro sniper. I'll always be on the team that gets steamrolled because everyone is sniping. The thought of it makes my blood boil. They should have kept it a card with a big CD.
  9. I don't know why this is so funny to me.

  11. When you play your best games as Mercy ever and no one votes for your card even though you clutch revived the team to victory, and got POTG twice as Mercy. Healers live a underappreciated life, but no one has any problems complaining about not having one. I've almost sunken into fulltime healer on Overwatch because now when I'm not healer, I rage when the one we have sucks. I started playing Ana and Mercy a lot more just to be proficient with them. I'm a trolling beast with Lucio now, to where I can pretty much kill tanks and hit scan heroes doing wall hanging. (Thanks DPStanky for that inspiration) Joke is on everyone else on Double XP weekend though, Healers always get a gold medal for healing... and sadly if I'm Lucio I can pull off 4-5 gold medals if my team is that bad.

      I never had that problem during the free weekend, I usually always got the votes. Then again I wasn't playing with seasoned veterans like you do so that might be the reason.

      If I had the money and we actually had time to play together I'd be your full-time healer, you know how good I am. Meh, it seems a lot of games are falling into this stigma now toward healers. Fuck I rarely get any commendations in FFXIV for keeping people alive when I play Scholar (especially in those fucking hard ass dungeons/raids where healing is a lot harder to do). No love for the support players x.x

      Its Double XP weekend so a lot of people that play for loot boxes rather than fun are on. There were a lot of instances no one picked a tank. If we played, I'd honestly pick Zen in a lot of matches. A team with a main and secondary healer almost always wins against a single healer team. Hell I got paired with a 5 stack the other night were they played Mercy, Zen, Ana, Soldier, Mei. So I tanked every round and we crushed everyone.

      On a funny note, I realized today I killed SSSniperwolf multiple times as Genji a few weeks ago. I figured it was just someone that just took the Psn name because I didn't think she played PS4. But she does. I don't really follow her, and when I do see her posts people hate on her saying she's just a pretty face that's not that good... I can confirm. She's not. XD Me and my friends wrecked her team.

  12. Not to mention this is the most beautiful looking Ace Combat yet. I'm conflicted on the delay. I want to play this now, but my wallet says no with GW2's new expac coming in the thick of the holiday season. I already know I'm going to get the Ultimate Edition of that, as its the only game I can trust to get the highest tier package anymore. Super Mario Odyssey is a must for me. Then I'm hoping God of War comes out this year since Red Dead and AC7 come out next... I just hope its not one of those March triple release occurrences. X_x
  13. It's not Ace Combat without a mission with some ridiculously massive bomber equipped with an insane amount of AA.
  14. This movie was outstanding. DC's best movie so far. One of the things I hate about some of the animated moves is when they do that "fresh off the island" Wonder Woman and she seems to be as dimwitted as a Neanderthal that's only good at fighting. They handled this very well in the movie, while she was naive about the ways of the world, she had a basic understanding of it and was classically educated. There were bits and pieces in there that were added for humor's sake, but nothing overly cringeworthy to make her look like a blundering oaf. The action sequences were great, they stayed away from the overly CG night explosions everywhere 300 style until the very end when it needed to be like that. The action was great, the story was great, and the supporting cast was interesting. Pacing was really good, it never felt like it was dragging. I must apologize for ever doubting Gal Gadot could fill this role, she's amazing. She made a very good transition from BvS Wonder Woman that was experienced in modern civilization to Naive Wonder Woman. It was very believable and well acted with class and dignity.
  15. I do notice that anime uses popular Japanese bands for their openings and closings most the time. I can just about pull up any opening on youtube and find a live concert version of it. Of course this started irritating me because a lot of the time I like to listen to this stuff and then it gets yanked from YT due to copyright reasons or "not available in your region". I use to listen/enjoy the scenery on a lot of SCANDAL's stuff who did some endings for Fullmetal Alchemist. Now it makes sense why anime is so expensive when you only get 4 eps a disc. I have a bootleg Samurai Champloo that I bought for like $50 back when that stuff wasn't monitored on half.com. Its all on like 2-3 DVDs... as opposed to my 16 disc FMA collection. This is why I'd rather just give Funi $7 a month to watch stuff.
  16. Its pretty irritating how inconsistently YouTube runs on Firefox. Even at 40mpbs it still buffers and stalls on long videos.. but only for certain videos and channels. Sometimes I can watch an hour video no issue, sometimes I can't. But on Chrome it always works... because you know, google owns both. -_-;. Its bullshit. Anytime I want to watch Wooden Potatoes I pretty much have to do it on chrome.

      Firefox's quality has gone to shit over the years. But some of the issues might be related to the ad blocking addons I have running. uBlock Origin and Ad Block Plus keep firefox my primary browser tho. Too many websites are assholes with advertisements. Google Chrome is coming out with an update that is supposed to block annoying ads by default. Popups, auto play videos, blocking content ads. If that actually happens I might switch over to chrome completely. Especially if this does apply to their android browser. I don't mind some ads, but to hell if I'll even try to keep reading a page on my phone when I have to click 3 different 1 centimeter x's to close ads blocking all the text I'm trying to read.

      I usually watch youtube on my roku stick with a combo of the youtube app on my phone to act as a remote control. It works pretty good.

      Anytime I visit a page, mostly news articles and they don't give me any option without turning off ad blocker I just leave. I'm not going to click your ads ever, so you aren't losing revenue. I don't need to see what I just looked at/bought from Amazon. The only thing you're losing is a viewer and you're gaining recommendation to never visit your site via word of mouth. Adblock Plus needs to update its code to avoid these detectors.

      Those annoying detectors are using javascript. So I ended up getting a javascript off/on toggle add on for pages like that. As soon as I see the message, I click the toggle, hit refresh, read the article, close the page and turn javascript back on. Its getting ridiculous to avoid ads just to read a single page of text. Without adblock I get more online ads per content than I do with watching a movie on cable. btw, uBlock Origin is better than adblock plus now. I have both on at the same time. But the problem I'm getting now is firefox open with a single page is taking up 5% of my cpu and over half a gig of memory. I don't know if its because of firefox being optimized shittily or if its the addons causing the issue. Meanwhile, google chrome will sit with .02 cpu usage (if that) after a page is loaded and only take up roughly 300 mb of ram over its multiple processes combined.

  17. I know Dragonball Super has some really shitty animation. AoT has really good animation. Space Dandy, Mob Psycho 100, and My Hero Academia have outstanding animation and they were all simulcasts. I wonder if Funi and/or CN funnel any money in to get some of these studios to do it right the first time. MHA is on a different level,\ from Dandy and MP100 though, as the latter two could probably get away with some shortcuts due to their psychedelic scenes since they are both batshit crazy in their own rights.
  18. Still they could have come up with a better script on how he ends up there. I'm all for not dragging it out, but for me you either do it right, or you don't do it at all and just make him full power from start. The whole origin thing is getting pretty old. I'll go see Wonder Woman Wednesday most likely, since she was the best part of BvS. What's terrible is how many times Spider-Man has been rebooted now... 3 times in a decade? I didn't even watch the last two. I'll probably see homecoming though because Stark is in it.
  19. Pretty sad since some of the better stories of any form of TV/Movie media has come from anime. I have noticed anime with more Western themes. My Hero Academia is one of them, AoT has a lot of European characters, and all the Martians in Aldnoah.Zero were Aryan. I guess attention spans really have gotten bad in our digital age. I was watching some commentary discussion on the new Eureka Seven and they said the the original had a "slower pace that newer anime fans wouldn't be use to" and I was like uuuh wot?
  20. Oh boy... the fact this season is only 12 episodes with a lot of fillers, and "12 hours ago" type eps is pretty disappointing. I've liked all the eps, don't get me wrong, but I don't see how they are going to really progress the story, and then wait another few years for a season 3? It seems like they should probably take a break, and just start over when the manga is done. Apparently the anime industry is in bad shape right now, animators are overworked, underpaid, and school's are closing. This guy has an annoying voice, but goes over it. I guess the animators can't go on strike like the writers guild and actors guild have done in the US to get better wages. But I find it funny its hard to get quality anime, yet T&A shows get pumped out like no one's business. Anime were busty girls fight with there butts, and what not. wtf . I mean I enjoy a Highschool DxD now and then, but damn the market is saturated with fan service, and people are yearning for something better. I know there is a lot of meh towards AoT, but there is a reason its popular, and the state of the market has a lot to do with it.
  21. I really liked it, but man there was just some stupid story progression. Most of it revolved around Strange just accepting everything so quickly... most notably going to find the Ancient One off some former cripple's word. Chalk it up to desperation, but then that gets shot down when he questions everything with his scientific knowledge when he finally gets there. Believing the guy in the first place didn't match his character. Eh. The villain was pretty lame, but I really never got into Dr. Strange comics-wise. Mordo was a crappy character too after the plot twist, and the secret ending just made me dislike him more. Id def rank this one lower than Ultron but above Iron Man 3 which was my least favorite. The special effects were neat, but Matrixy. I think the Captain America movies are the best in the marvel universe. At least Winter Soldier and Civil War by far.
  22. I rewatched Paranoia Agent for the first time since it originally aired on Adult Swim over a decade ago. It wasn't as weird as I remember it being... probably because I've seen way more weird stuff since then and have been desensitized. It was still bizarre though. It will always have one of the most strange and memorable openings.

      I need to rewatch this. It was pretty unique at the time.

  23. I guess this trailer released a bit early because the end shows a E3 2017 walkthrough. you can't click on it though, and its not on their main video list. http://www.vg247.com/2017/06/02/the-next-game-from-killer-instinct-devs-is-god-of-war-meets-dragons-dogma/
  24. http://kotaku.com/switchs-netflix-like-classic-game-service-is-a-rare-exa-1795766912 If done right this would be worth $20 a year to me. I could play SNES games I'd would and would buy again and would not buy generally speaking. A netflix for classic games.
