  1. Basically, don't buy this for PC. Pretty sad. PC will always have the best visuals and game prices, but it will never have all the best games... and it seems devs always favor the console version the most when its a multiplatform release.
  2. I played ep 1 of A New Frontier and you can definitely tell they made it a lot more console friendly. Which in turn makes it easier on PC as well. Bashing/stabbing walker heads is now just an action button press. Its Q and E on PC so I'll assume it was Square and X on PS4 where you mashed one and pressed the other when you filled the meter... but for melee prompts they swap it up between the two, and sometimes the left/right/up/down will be melee... but when that happens its during intense scenes as if you would have dodged anyways. So they don't mix it up too much. I even had a shooting sequence that was in classic form but much easier.... basically the super wobbly head motion paired with the shaky cursor is gone... that was pretty annoying even with a mouse. The game looks a lot sharper than the first. The dialog was much improved when searching too.. it feels a bit more natural when you interact with items that you can't use. I mean that wasn't really a knock on the first game, and it didn't really need an improvement. But its interesting how they made it feel more realistic rather than a normal sigh or headshake and a "busted" or "we wont be able to use that" line. The choices you made in season two seem to affect flashbacks rather than this story. You can use your save data Mass Effect style, Start fresh, or even use your save data and change choices you made. I assume you can pick and choose, but I went ahead and stuck with my decisions... I don't like to take back, even if I regret my choices... that's what I love about continuity games.
  3. I just watched this and it was actually really good. I saw on facebook this has been approved for an 8 ep 2nd season as well. This season is basically a movie cut up in to 4 eps... they honestly could have just played it through. Pros: Great animation... finally a western animation that isn't cartoony bullshit with realistically drawn humans. The sounds are great, music is limited to necessary moments. Very little time is spent on world building without completely leaving those new to Castlevania lore in the dark. No origins story here, There is a premise and you're thrown straight into it after that. No lengthy intro sequence you'll just skip after the first time you watch it. The gore is spectacular. Limited subtle humor that fits with what is going on when its injected. Cons: The voice acting isn't terrible, but there is a lot of whisper-y characters. No one is straining their vocals for these roles that's for sure. It's only 4 episodes with a Legend of Legendary Heroes type finale... If you didn't know a second season was approved, you'd be pretty upset.
  4. I'm glad the Pillows are doing the music for this still to keep the same feel OST-wise.
  5. Are you talking about the US one (I liked it), or Shin Godzilla that was made by the Evangelion guy? I read over what happened in Shin Godzilla and it was bizarre as hell, then when I realized who's vision it was it made sense. I still want to watch it.
  6. Sometimes its laughable how bad western entertainment can mangle/misunderstand or don't care to even try to be accurate with eastern content to this day. I just watched a "Top 10" Godzilla villains video where the rules were that no one that was a frequent ally would be included in the list... and then they put King Caesar who was never a villain save for one time he was being mind controlled. I mean wtf? He's a huge ally in one of the most memorable movies in the whole damn franchise... and then they pick Anguirus?! Literally Godzilla's best friend lore-wise? Because they fought in 1 film as enemies, and another again being mind controlled. If that wasn't enough, Rodan was an honorable mention yet again breaking their rule for those not to be included. The rest of the list was spot on.. ironically Mechagodzilla was #2 (rightfully so) where they heavily emphasized the first film over the new age ones... you know... where Caesar was an ally. XD What a train wreck. At least King Ghidorah was #1. Gigan and Destoroyah rounded up the top 4. The commentator called Destoroyah "Destroyah". -_-;

  7. Apparently NCSoft got DDoSed today and caused server issues for GW2. I've taken a break to play some other games so I'm glad I'm not working on anything right now or I'd be raging... especially if I was trying to WvW.

      I've heard so many ppl complaining about the lag in the pvp lobby that I haven't bothered to do a single match the last 2 days. Its been going on for 2 days but then they got full on DDoSed yesterday while I was trying to log in for my home instance farming.

  8. I finished season 2 and it was pretty depressing. It was good to see an old face, but man they really made it hard by doing that. I stuck with him until the end and chose to listen to him. I'm surprised how it was 50/50 on the final fight for most people... especially with the Lee flashback right before it.
  9. Skip to like 5min if you want to skip the entire IGN exclusive time schedule.
  10. The only thing I ever see people use these for is to get around blocks on gaming because if some college campus security protocol that throws their firewall out of wack or something.
  11. I guess I'm not a huge Trekkie. I love TOS and TNG, and thats pretty much it. I couldn't get into DS9, and I never had time to watch Voyager, although I did like the episodes I got to watch. Its hard to beat the Kirk-Spock-Bones connection. I can't really say there was a focal 3 in TNG because more of the characters had more limelight. Its probably some bias too since no other series got feature films. The original BSG was great, I avoided posting that one because I knew someone else would. I couldn't get into the remake because they changed too much for my nostalgia.
  12. Ah yes, I can't leave out my most played game. Ole Dragon's stand. A whole map made into a meta event that lasts at least an hour. I'll never forget when I first got here, I knew very little about it since HoT was so new. I ran my lane and fought the bosses thinking how epic it was, and then was blown away by the giant serpent dragon boss at the finale. This music ran the whole time giving it such a thrilling experience. Yeah I can't pick just one.

No more endless currency grind to try to get a god roll, only to keep getting knee pads on your shotgun. If the weapon stats are shit they are shit for everyone, if they are amazing, they are amazing for everyone.
  14. I thought I'd put this here because Cassini will enter Saturn by September and gather data from within the planet before it burns up.
  15. This was a terrible mistake. And not because he was nerfed, it was because Reaper was buffed and is ultra OP right now. Paired with this nerf, Reaper can't be stopped when someone good is using him. No tanks can go head to head with him, not even D.Va. He gets 20% of the damage he dished out as HP now. Instead of the orbs from kills, he constantly heals as hes blasting anything. Tanks can't outdamage this healing. So Roadhog cant hook and one shot, and D.Va can't stagger her defense matrix and wear him down. Playing tank is pretty frustrating right now when there is a hero that can melt them with no issue. The only good thing from this buff is there is finally a hard counter to Zarya... but hes a hard counter to every tank.... which was his designed purpose but hes way too good at it now... and he heals off regular heroes as well. As much as i enjoy slaughtering Zarya and Symmetra, its not good for the game. Now people don't want to be healers or tanks.
  16. -_-; wtf... Its 6v1 on WvW this week... both of our opponents are triple link servers. How is that even fair? We're getting destroyed in skirmishes because they K-train the whole map. They can't fight worth anything because were were farming them hard. But every time we dug out of last place we were instantly back in it within seconds of taking a keep or tower. They probably have like 3 commanders from each server zerging around the map capping stuff. How did Tarnish Coast get so bad that it needs 2 servers linked to it? Feels like not too long ago it was the weekly battle of JQ/BG/TC.

      I finished out my Wood Chest tonight to retain my loyalty pip. I took a break from TWD todo this, but thats all I'll probably play this week with whats going on. Its not worth getting last place pips to get to gold.

      On a side note, how has purging flames not been nerfed... I mean screw epidemic, at least you have a chance to condi clear it. I drop PF on an unsuspecting zerg and I instadown 6-7 people at once. XD It's pretty absurd. Sometimes my loot feed starts rolling like I'm in the Mad King's Labyrinth.

      I love purging flames. So many instant kills with it. XD the synergy with dire equipment and that one trait that procs burns on hits is too damn OP. Its more damage than berserkers longbow burst attacks.. It's easily as powerful as berserkers gunflame bursts used to be before it was nerfed.

      Well.. I think I'm going to hold off on trying to get WvW skirmish tickets for the foreseeable future until they change the system. I already have 1 legendary back piece and I'm close to getting the pvp one. The wvw one looks good, but I don't have the time for it. I was getting 2 pips per tick yesterday just to finish off my wood chest for 10 whopping tickets. If the reward tracks would reset monthly instead of weekly it'd be a much more enjoyable system since the rewards scale with the higher chests. If anything there should have been a wvw season that runs opposite the pvp league seasons. Weekly resetting the reward track is too much for me. The loyatly pip is dumb too since it only applys to the reward track you last completed. I made it through the wood chest the week before so I get an extra 1 pip per tick... until I finish the wood chest, then that loyalty pip is removed because I'm past the tier I finished the week before.

      They should have introduced 2 new currencies like how pvp has claim tickets and ascended shards of glory. The tickets can be accumulated at about the same speed in pvp as the tickets in wvw, but ascended shards of glory come in much higher numbers for buying ascended gear. But in wvw there is only claim tickets and the vendors needs ass tons of them. I bought the first tier of the pvp back piece precursor for 10 tickets.. in wvw the first tier costs 350 tickets. wtf. I can get 10 claim tickets in pvp in about an hour or a little more depending on how high a chest tier I'm at. In wvw it takes me 4 hours to get 10 claim tickets. I'll keep playing some wvw for gifts of battle and for fun, but I'm not going to even bother playing enough to get these tickets for this cost of time. At 4 hours a week for 10 tickets a week it'll take me 5 years to get this back piece. Its not casual friendly at all and I'd rather go back to playing Mass Effect or my back log of other games.

      What anet needs to do is change the vendors completely and introduce ascended memories of battle currency. The back piece items should have the same cost as the pvp one and ascended memories of battle can be used for the ascended armor/weapons. As well as having a wvw league season instead of weekly reset, I bet alot more people would enjoy it. As it is now people have to dedicate 30+ hours a week to finish the entire reward track. And outnumbered pips is dumb. I was on a map that was outnumbered, prediction says I'll get 7 pips but some guy in map chat likes to call out the outnumbered map. 2 seconds before the pip rewards hit, people load into the map, I get 2 flipping pips because outnumbered is immediately negated. They all leave and my next pip prediction is 7 again when I know for a fact the same shit will happen again. -_-;
