  1. I've got a feeling you'll be disappointed. MS is the biggest software maker in the world, they know software better than Sony ever will. Full backwards compatibility across every generation is going to be the one thing they have over Sony. PS5 will at best be able to play all PS4 games and maybe some PS3 games. I doubt they ever planned to have anyone pop a copy of Twisted Metal 2 or Warhawk into their PS5 to play it. They haven't really done a lot of backwards compatibility because they don't really know how to program it. The first PS3s had PS2 guts jammed in them to make them backwards compatible. I remember playing some PS2 games on my friends newer PS3 and the bugs and graphical glitches were crazy. If you read between the lines though, for the majority of consumers its a feature thats more for bragging rights. The amount of people that will really pop in their Xbox and 360 games is minimal compared to those playing new games or even Xbone/PS4 games. Its a nice feature that SHOULD be there, but at the end of the day its not what's going to sell consoles. I'll be very disappointed if my digital library isn't available. Sony stands to gain money from last gen titles. Seeing as you can still see PS3 games in the PS store, PS5 users would be inclined to spend money on older last gen (single player) games if they're on sale. I just read an article that said PS5's launch titles will not be cross generational. Which I assume points towards the last PS4 titles that pop before PS5 will be playable on PS5 without the necessity of having it be an PS5 title. But having no cross gen launch titles is a big plus for me. I don't want the first 6 months of titles to be just upscaled PS4 games. Give us those games that can only run off SSD drives.
  2. Its just a PC tower with a disc drive and a green glowy top. looks like something from ibuypower tbh. I'm on board with PS5 just because I've always been a console gamer first and foremost. It honestly could be even uglier and I wouldn't care as long as the games are good, which in itself are few and far between. My biggest concern with PS5 is these mock ups of screens on the DS5... please no. I remember when I was much younger being super hype about that type of stuff, but now I'm old and grumpy. The damn DS4's battery life is utter shit compared to anything I've ever used. I don't want screens or lights on my controller. It wastes battery and makes it more expensive to replace. No one has successfully reinvented the controller yet. Nintendo failed multiple times, and they stopped making steam controllers from what I've heard.
  3. Oh man you can have Ichiya in the party?!?!?! I might have to get it now.
  4. I'm only posting this because the graphics are so bad. LMAO! This is 2000's level movie game bad.
  5. LOL, this is the only trailer I've ever seen where the gameplay part of the footage makes the cinematic stuff look like trash.
  6. That was... interesting.

    Godfall

    Godfall is the first PS5 game announced. It will be a PS5 and PC exclusive. I guess Gearbox has some serious GARO fans because this screams GARO without the licensing.

    XBOX Series X

    Sony made the first announcement, but MS makes the first reveal. The Next Generation kicks off next holiday season.
  9. Looks neat. Kinda feels like Stranger Things: Ghostbusters Edition.
  10. While I agree the 725 is still OP, the M4 doesn't need a nerf. Meh, its just this games M16/FAMAS/ACR/UMP45 etc. It's a jack of all trades gun, but it doesn't have the TTK of the AK or Oden. Anyone with better aim is going to beat the M4 9/10 times, and those same players aren't dumb enough to challenge long range with these weapons. People have moved away from the camping double claymores. Of course I don't play TDM, but it was prevalent in Domination and Headquarters. Less so now I guess that people unlocked their camo challenges and what not and people have started playing the game. I still don't love FPS as much as I use to, but I enjoy a few hours here and there. I use to be able to sit in front of the TV for 12 hours straight and never get tired of it. The Battle Pass system is pretty good as it is now. Apparently in BO4 they started out good and got shitty soon after. We'll see how it goes. There are 100 tiers That will take you 200 hours to complete. I think the first 80 are free? I could be wrong but it goes up to a certain amount and then you have to buy a battle pass upgrade to get the last however many tiers. These last tiers are cosmetic only, and you can choose to buy at any given time instead of the start. That way if you're a dedicated player but you ran short on time one season due to personal life issues, you don't have to spend your COD points to upgrade if you know you wont make it all the way through the tiers. The 2 weapons will take about 20 hours to get someone calculated as they're both sub 30 tier. Basically it takes longer to get to the max soft cap rank 55 than to obtain these weapons so I feel like thats pretty fair. The question is what will they do when the season is over? Will they sell them individually if you missed out on the free period? Basically you don't have to spend a dime and just play an hour a day for 2 months to get the weapons is what it breaks down too. People are still complaining about that, but if you aren't playing MP for at least 20 hours in 2 months why did you even buy this game? If you're an ultra hard core COD fan, you can grind out the whole battle pass and get more COD points than you put into it and buy the next one with your earnings. So in theory if all you do is play COD you won't have to spend any money outside of the season 1 battle pass premium purchase. All of this sounds too good to be true for Activision The store is where they decided to be douchebags. They have cosmetic bundles that are around $15-20 each. They come with an operator skin, weapon charm, some stickers, a blue print (a gun skin), and maybe a calling card or emblem. The price isn't the issue, the issue is you can only see what they show you, and if you want more options you have to buy a bundle for a new one to appear in that spot. Apparently they rotate out every 24 hours, but you could be waiting days or weeks to get the one you want. Impatient people will spend a ton of money just to get the one they want to rotate into the store. I mean more power too them, but it seems like thats a small minority of players. They'd make more money just letting people pick whatever they want overall and the whales are gonna whale regardless. I think XclusivelyAce, without mentioning it directly, noticed that patent matchmaking in affect. COD has Score Based Match Making... basically trying to keep you at a 50% W/L 1.0 KDR. People hate it and IW has refused to acknowledge its there.... honestly git gud though. I've started tearing off some 38-6's 21-4's here and there. Its possible, its just not gonna be every match. Anyways Ace basically stated once he bought a bunch of skin bundles he noticed he started getting lobbies with scrubs that were oblivious to any type of map awareness and he was just stomping people into the ground. Basically he was put into less skilled lobbies so people could see his bling in their kill cams. The game isn't perfect, but I think is pretty enjoyable. It's better than anything I've played since Black Ops 2, but it doesn't quite beat anything before that.... except MW3... that was utter trash.
  11. I'm really hyped for this. The first one was super enjoyable even though the end was mad cheese. Hopefully they don't do that this time. Gal Gadot is so pretty and kicks ass. They really couldn't have picked a better actor for this role.
  12. It's been a minute since an anime made me laugh as hard as this scene. Probably because I can relate as a kid doing this in PE.
  13. This series never fails to deliver such beautiful music. I'm glad they stuck with S1's opener as rare as that is these days. But this ED is so good.
  14. Lets take a moment of appreciation for how utterly bad ass Maki's fight was on this weeks Fire Force. Same dude Arthur struggled with. That rig Vulcan set her up with is wicked. I'm really not ready for season 1 to end. Same with Dr. Stone. Both totally different series with outstanding world building. Its gonna feel a bit empty when they're done. MHA will probably start picking up steam soon though. Stars Align has been a nice surprise, and Azur Lane is totally my guilty pleasure this season. XD XD *ahem* But I digress.

      Fuck them for holding the last two episodes on that fucking cliffhanger (yea, episode 10 is a huge fucking setup and cliffhanger) for Azur Lane. 3 months for a conclusion is way to fucking much (and the quality wasn't bad imo for ep 9 or 10 but I'm also used to watching older shows that have wonky ass animation (one of my favorite anime of all time is the most meme-worthy one for bad animation (Mobile Suit Gundam))). Yea, I'm a little sore about it because you don't do shit like this (fuck the quality, just give me my episodes).

      Lets also point out how fucking epic that fight in Fire Force was this week (I told you he's a freaking monster). Also that Red Riot/Fat Gum fight was pretty epic too.

      XD I guess I'll feel it when I get to 10. With my time constants lately I've put up with less boring shows. I watched the first ep of Africa Salaryman and knew it wasn't for me. I wanted to like After School Dice Club, but each ep was just the same with a different board game. Kemono Michi was funny for a little bit but also got super repetitive and I dropped that too. Outside of Friday to Saturday's super lineup of Fire Force, Dr. Stone, and MHA, there are only 2 new shows I really dig this season. Azur Lane and Stars Align which is super fucking heavy for an anime about soft tennis. (Not counting Legend of the Galactic Heroes and Kono Oto Tomare! since they're not new). I feel ya though. I put up with Black Clovers massive quality drops for a year now just because I invested in the characters.

      It seems like Bibury is a pretty new studio and this is the first full length series they've done. Hopefully they learn from this and do better down the road.

      As for Fire Force, Fuck Giovanni. Damn what a good villain though. Hopefully Lisa can overcome her mental condition. That was rough. Sho's power is ridiculous, it will be interesting to see how they go about countering it somehow. Joker was able to so its clearly not unbeatable. I am glad MHA is giving other characters some spotlight this season. I dig Fat Gum's character.

      Oh, they'll counter it but it's a pretty major spoiler so I'm not going to say anything (all I'll say it has something to do with the Adolla Burst (which is why Sho is so powerful) and why it's so much different then normal pyrokinetics. They actually hint at it in the new opening but I won't point out where). It's been a long time since I've seen a villan on Giovanni's level and while I hate his guts god damn does he play the role so fucking well.

      Fat Gum is such an awesome character. I didn't really like him so much at first but after that epic fight I'm on board the Fat Gum train. I really love how MHA is taking this time to flesh out some of it's side characters and give them more importance to the overall plot. I got some series Deku flashbacks with Kirishima's backstory there.

    PS Plus Games

    I've been wanting to play the Titanfall 2 campaign.
  16. So after a little experimentation. Story mode will def let anyone play this game all the way through without much of a hassle besides being constantly staggered if you refuse to follow the rules of combat. You can still die, it will just take an idiot level of suck to not grasp the concept. That being said, once you get deep into the skill tree the game becomes significantly more easy on normal minus the last two characters you have to fight for real, as the final "boss" is just a sequence of things that made for a true grand finale ending that I found to be unique and awesome. But back to the force powers. Pull is everything. Most enemies, even some resistant to force push can be pulled and one shotted with your saber as long as you have enough on the force meter to do so. There are times this game throws things at you that require you to string different abilities together with a certain mix of enemies. Like having 2 shock troopers, a imperial droid, and two imperial drones. You can pull the drones too you, hack them with BD-1, and they will shoot at the enemies that really are a tough combo to deal with otherwise. There are also random bounty hunters that look like Leia when she infiltrated Jabba's palace in RoTJ, they are sometimes accompanied by a battle droid. Most of these are optional bosses that are off the beaten path, or in places you already visited. They don't respawn when you rest, as they're unique enemies. After beating this game, I'd place it in my top 3 behind KOTOR and Jedi Outcast. It could have been #2 if a few things would have been a bit different. One, the combat style just wasn't my thing. Sure for bosses, but for everything, it was a little stressful.. enough that I couldn't marathon the game. I'd play a planet and put it down for a day. Its definitely not a sit back and relax type of game. While the story was amazing, the pacing kinda went off track near the end. You pick up one of the most interesting crew members and then you're at the end with one more location to visit. I feel like that was a lost opportunity as her dialogue was really good and seemed to be a character worth investing more with, but instead it was rushed and the emotions shared the rest of the time felt forced. Once I mastered the combat, the game can be marred by camera and frame rate issues that will cause you to fall off a side, during a jump or slide puzzle which takes some of your HP away until you die. So you can easily waste stim canisters healing yourself from something thats not combat. And if you're not playing on Story, stims are precious and its aggravating to have to waste one becasue the camera is wonky and making you miss a vine or a turn. Basically, if the game wold have been a little bit longer with more casual combat (Like God of War PS4 level) outside of bosses, It would have been perfect to me. If you like Star Wars its definitely worth the pick up. Per usual the stories told outside of the movies are better than the movies. If they make another one I'll def pick it up.
  17. Well I guess since its the hottest meme on the internet right now the big spoiler is pretty much unavoidable at this point. I'll still not mention it. Ep 2 wasn't bad, but it was def more of a set up and build ep. Ep 3 was worth that build. BTW its 8 eps not 6, so wait 2 more weeks than originally I said. The small bit that was awesome though was vibroblades! They made a quick appearance this ep.
