  1. This guy's reviewing voice and tone sounds like one of those 90's consumer reports car reviews.
  2. I just saw this and I really enjoyed it. Its a half and half mix of political drama and action. Chan and Brosnan were both main characters with pretty much equal screen time. Almost all the major action sequences are all in the trailer chopped up. They did a good job of making Jackie Chan more believable as an old man. He wasn't untouchable, he was slower, and got the crap kicked out of him while kicking ass.
  3. I think Overwatch has the best system. Cosmetics only is the way to go. Destiny is too bad, but they still have DLC. COD is p2w and from the looks of it so is BFII. I don't mind loot boxes as long as they don't give gear. My issue is every game being pretty much the same with a new coat of paint. I love me some shared world shooters, but I still want an MGS, Ace Combat, Uncharted, Red Dead Redemption in the mix.
  4. Looks like there will be single player.
  5. Super Mario Odyssey comes out Friday. I'm pretty excited as it will be the first Mario game I've played since Sunshine. But Stranger Things also comes out that day, and I'm going to see Jigsaw that night. too much shit happening at once. X_X

      lol. Skip jigsaw and marathon that game. :P I never played sunshine. My last Mario game was Mario 64. XD

      Nah, it was a tradition for SAW 1-7, I asked off for it to keep it going. XD

      Sunshine was amazing, they'll probably never port it unless it came with a special gamecube controller. The water jets were button pressure sensitive, and all 3 consoles ditched that tech this generation.

      Wow its only a 5gig download. With as large as the game is that I've seen from E3, thats pretty crazy. BoTW is almost 14gb if you do digital. But I guess the vast scope of BoTW's map with its crazy terrain, towers, 100+ shrines, and 4 moving dungeons demands more. 

  6. https://www.vg247.com/2017/10/23/star-wars-battlefront-2-single-player-campaign-is-5-7-hours-long/ 5-7 hours? sheesh. They shouldn't have bothered to make it at all TBH. EA clearly has shown no interest in making any single player content for Star Wars. They shut down Visceral and they are probably going to convert that project into a Destiny clone. It seems out of no where, shared world shooters are the new FPS, and every game is going to be one. Every time we're close to getting a legit Star Wars story driven type game it gets scrapped. If you cant have micro-transactions, then its not worth making now I guess.
  7. My right joystick on my Cinch PS4 controller is going bad. It doesn't register right turns very well. I think it has something to do with me taking it apart after the charge port fell into the controller. Part of that is my fault for being spoiled by USB-C and not checking if its in the correct orientation. It lasted me a good year and a half. I'm too spoiled to go back to a regular controller so I ordered another one.

      How much would a repair job cost from them compared to buying a new controller?

      I dunno, but I do know I'd be out of a controller for more than a month. I could probably fix it myself, but I want a back up plan.

      I don't see why this isn't a standard feature on all controllers by now. It makes sense with how gaming is. Those 3rd party "pro controllers" are ugly as sin and mess up the great ergos of the original.

      At least controller mods and add ons look alot better than the old gameboy add ons. XD

      But nothing will beat this monstrosity:

  8. Scotty ruined everything.
  9. That's interesting, as much as I love Star Trek I'm not really up to speed on the lore. The first time I've ever heard of Transwarp was in the experimental Excelsior in Search for Spock. So why was it never really utilized?
  10. For me the biggest disappointment is the weapons. I have all the good stuff (except Hard Light still -_-). Foward Path, Martyr's Make, Valakadyn, Nameless Midnight, Better Devils, Ureil's Gift/The Number, Merciless, A Complex Solution, Vigilance Wing, A Time Worn Spire, Rat King, etc. The "new" weapons on the faction rally were just reskins of other weapons with a different static perk. Grenade Launchers a shit, and I kinda miss LMGs. If there were way more weapons, there would still be something to grind for. I wasn't expecting a Borderlands level of quantity, but I was hoping for at least triple of what we had. Again, it goes back to PvP balance holding back the PvE aspect. It seems to be a common theme in every game I like these days. I really am missing Ice Breaker right now. Nightfall's aren't really that fun to me, they are just means to an end to get powerful gear. The time limit thing is pretty meh, the no wipe rule was more thrilling. Now when everyone wipes, everyone sits there for 25 seconds or more, because if you respawn solo, you'll likely die instantly when you take on all the aggro on the boss. Normal strikes are pretty pointless because public events are just as rewarding and you can do 4-5 of them in the time it takes one strike. They should have make strike specific loot. The only strikes I've played are the 2 I needed on each character to unlock the nightfall, and the nightfalls. I think someone on reddit said it best that the token system is a great support mechanic, but shouldn't have been the main loot drop mechanic. Prestige mode should have had its own loot. I don't think anything should have had a better power level as most these people that play this content indicate... it should have had unique weapons and armor though. There should have been more Exotic bounties as well. I actually enjoyed the MIDA/Sturm/Rat King quests. They were reasonable, and took a decent effort to obtain.... well MIDA was super easy, but that's besides the point.
  11. Iron Banner, but its not like it matters, there are no level advantages in any PvP, even Trials. As casual as this game is, this is one thing I don't stand by. There is literally nothing for hardcore players to do outside of Prestige Raid and Nightfall as Strider has said. Once I got The Forward Path on my first engram, I was done with IB because Control is such a shit game mode, with half the maps completely unbalanced towards one flag side. The map that takes place on the Leviathan is such a joke, its crazy how it got passed testing. If you start on A flag, you pretty much automatically have a win unless you're team is organized and can take the flag from them. A has a straight line of sight and travel to B, while C has a closed off door way with a chasm, and no real flanks to A all your paths are narrow hallways leading to an exit that the team at A can see and shut down. I've started continuously finishing at the top of my matches. My weapons help out a lot as I have all the best Auto rifles. But If I'm by myself I still lose more than win because while my K/D is around 2.5-4 on average per match, I'll get a team that all go 0.5 or worse. I only do PvP for my weekly powerful engrams which is around 15 matches (5 per character). Thankfully losses count towards that progression or it would be a lot more.
  12. I think I got the hang of this.
  13. YouTube bypasses Adblock Plus now. -_-; Ads are more annoying on PC than on the phone. I always wondered what those yellow lines were in the play timeline, they pop banners on the video at those times.

      Try watching a list of music videos. Every 2-3 minutes there is a commercial inbetween every song. x_x They keep trying to promote their youtube red add free feature on me.

      Use "ublock origin" addon. It'll block the youtube ads and you wont even see the yellow lines in the video.

  14. I finished IDO the other night. It was enjoyable. It felt like the first half consisted of 15 minute episodes though after you cut the opening and credits out. They are 24 min total as is. One thing I dislike a lot about Netflix is their translation team when it comes to written text. A lot of times they don't bother with signs or other text. The end of IDO it goes through what some characters did at the end of the story, and the text flashes on the screen so fast you can't even read it before it goes away.
  15. I just cant take Aquaman seriously no matter how hard they try. They should have rebooted Green Lantern with Idris Elba as John Stewart for this instead.
  16. I saw it. Thought it was decent. I wasn't a big fan of the original and pretty much felt the same way for this one. I did enjoy the consistency of visuals between the two films. Morgan from TWD was in it which was funny.
  17. When they announced this, I thought it was stupid they were making a sequel... but if anything else, I do like how it sticks with the 80's dark dingy style future.
  18. I'm proud of this troll ending.
