    They should have both formats compatible. Digital games should last forever, But I could understand only doing physical for 1 generation back. They should get rid of discs all together though and go to those SD cards that the switch uses. Keep the Blu-Ray drive for PS4 games and blu-ray functionality. They should also do a 4TB HD and quit with the BS on small storage. It would also be nice to have feature to "zip" your unused games so you can unzip them later when you want to play them rather than having to redownload the whole thing. They also need to get their head out of their ass on cross platform. They don't need to repeat the PS3 generation where they fall behind because they got to arrogant. They made a massive comeback this gen, pummeling Microsoft in resounding fashion. Sony has way more exclusives, and that's what sells the console. Let people play across platforms, this would maintain the health of a lot of online game populations by consolidating the playerbase. It would probably save companies resources on having 3 different servers or 3 different partitions of a server for their games. Smaller studio games that have failed may fair better when everyone is playing together from all platforms. Let studios decide what they want to do.. Because I know COD would probably not do this to keep their old games dying so people have to buy the new ones.

    Nier Automata, Breath of the Wild, and God of War are probably the best games I've played as far as enjoyment factor in the past 5 years. They're all single player games. The problem with MP experiences now is balance is prioritized over fun. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 after the Javelin Glitch and Model 87s were nerfed was just a fucking blast to play... because EVERYTHING was OP as shit... the models were so OP that they were more OP than all the OP stuff. The game mechanically may have been a mess, but everyone was on an equal playing field with just about every gun being viable because you could choose in what way to be OP. It balanced itself. That was fun. Basically Esports ruined MP games. Overwatch is about the only game I enjoy that is balanced fairly well... but its purely an objective game with the need for strategy. MW2 demolition, you shoot 4 tubes around the bomb, chuck your nades, call in the air strike, pave low, arm the bomb, and post up the choke point and obliterate everyone that funnels in.   Ah back when I try hard carried teams to victory. Now if a MP game can't be esports, they just don't fool with making them.

    It saddens me that Bungie thinks they can get away with this shit. I mean the expansion looks good (Bladedance making a comeback?) but honestly it's not worth the price tag (especially considering I would need to drop money to get get Curse and Warmind just to play it) or the disappointment tied to it once it's apparent they'll only deliver on half the promises they made. It's baffling how people still give this company money (and how many still praise how great D2 is, even after all the bullshit they've pulled).
    Honestly as long as BFV is half of what they're talking about I'll be happy (even if it's only 5 maps but I doubt it, DICE has never really screwed us that badly. Their bosses on the other hand are another story). I won't hold my breath for The Division 2. Outside of R6S Ubisoft has done nothing to make me think it'll be any better than The Division (a game that still hasn't had any story progression beyond how it ended). True the game is in a better place but how long did it take? Are you really ready to invest money into a game that will probably have the same start as the first one? I'm not and unless I'm impressed by what I see once it releases I probably won't (don't get me wrong, I liked The Division for what it was. The story was good and the game play was solid but it just got so tedious without a group to play with. Plus after a while the grind for better gear got boring and wasn't as rewarding as it is in other games (I don't mind grinding gear but I hate grinding when the chances are slim to none that I'll get anything good (I mean come on I still play FFXIV, a game designed to be a grind and I fucking love it because I always feel like I'm working for something tangible))).
    Anthem is BioWare's swan song. It better be good because if it isn't we might not see BioWare for much longer. I really hope it's everything they promise it to be but I'm tempering my expectations. I refuse to get hyped by all the youtubers making video's about it or to get hyped in general. I want tangible proof this game is worth my money and that won't come until we get game play footage and actual news worth getting hyped about. Gaming is leaving nothing but a bad taste in my mouth as of late and games as good as Detroit are becoming few and far between (which as a lovely surprise by how good the game actually was). I have only one game this year I've been looking forward to and that's Ace Combat 7 because those games are the only ones I get hyped for (I've never been disappointed by the main Ace series (numbered titles, Assault Horizon was thankfully not a main series staple because you and I both know how much that game sucked)). I just wish we'd get more information on it.

    That seems to be the way it is. You either get privacy or internet. I think I even had a friend that offered to pay for the cables to be ran to his house because it was one of those awkward situations where the street across from him had good internet but his street didn't. They still turned him down. Its pretty amazing how terrible our internet structure still is. And with city codes and what not I bet it's too much of a hassle to go through the process to run cables to a single house just to give someone access to your service.

    The housing market is never good at a convenience. Back in 2012 my parents tried to sell their house, it sat on the market for over a year with hardly any interest. At this point housing was pretty cheap, cheapest in years according to my mom. She kept pressuring me to buy a house but I just couldn't afford it. Now the housing market is booming and I know I couldn't afford one right now until I get moved up more in my new job.

    Wait until you see all the ass pulls in the last arc of this series. At one point I thought the manga was going to go full hentai. I hope the guy does make a sequel tho. I read this manga for 10 years and even tho it fell apart in the end, I miss it.

    leave it to you to notice the most important things.
    It's been a rough ride and the way things are shaping up (based on all 5 eps) it's going to be another emotional roller coaster. I'm honestly enjoying this more then the first one just based on the emotional tone alone but I still say the first one was amazing in it's own right (I just wish the fucking games would go on sale x.x )

    Few things are as demoralizing as when you're about to pay off your debt and something comes up to pretty much add back on to it. Or takes away the funds you had to put towards it. Mostly car repairs. That's why I bought a brand new car this go around. By the time its paid off, it will still have decent low mileage, very low wear and tear, and be properly maintained. There shouldn't be too many surprises.

    I got the majority of my credit debt trying to provide for my family of 4 while making only $8 an hour for 6 years or so. Groceries, rent and car repair bills were the worst. I make decent money now but that debt has only compounded over the years. every time i start making progress on it some massive bill usually comes out of no where like a pet surgery at the vet, major car issue and one year I went to the ER with an asthma attack and those medical bills even after insurance took me most of a year to eventually pay off. Discover is very generous with their limits. Lol. I have 21k limit on mine.

    I'll have to check that out. The front 4 USB ports are never going to work again. The case slants at the top and just the weight and pulling of the cords damaged it over time. The PC would just instantly blue screen on boot up, so I had to disconnect them, but I still have 8 slots in the back. I'm good with the 5-6 I use, but if I lose anymore, it will become problematic. I really don't want to upgrade anytime soon. PC advancement has come to a crawl over the past few years and I wouldn't be jumping by a lot if I did.

    I lived in an apartment with a friend for 4 years when I was only making like $11.23 an hour and I was in my mid 20's. Budgeting was def not a high priority. I built up a lot of debt because I'd throw groceries on the credit card or a car repair. I quickly found myself in a crap ton of debt across 4 accounts, and had to move back in with my parents after a while. I have like 2 more payments on my student loan, and I'll be down to about $6000 in debt mostly on a single credit card. Oddly enough, it's done wonders for my credit score because I never miss a payment, and my credit is 6-12 years old depending on the card or account it was on. Credit Karma says its in the mid to upper 700s, but when the car dealership ran it, it was 817. I never bothered to check it until I considered a new vehicle, but now it makes more sense why my bank, Visa, Discover, and Mastercard are always offering me these insanely gigantic personal loan opportunities, and why my credit line is freaking huge on my Discover card... like $15k. I could seriously buy another car with it, but not at 18% interest....

    That was always my problem with credit cards. Lol. As soon as there is available credit it felt like i had money to spend. I'm still paying off debt and i hate it. If I could go back in time and slap myself i would.
    I recommend getting one of these for your usb issues:
    https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Individual-Switches-included-HB-UMP3/dp/B00TPMEOYM
    I had something similar happen. Turns out my usb slots still worked but what failed was the power they were outputting. I'd try to transfer pics from my phone to the pc and it would connect and disconnect constantly and another usb slot wouldn't even recognize it. Same with my external hard drives that are self powered thru the usb connection. I bought this self powered usb hub and as long as i have it plugged into a power outlet every usb port i plug it into works again.

    Season 2 of Overlord is a lot of setup for whats to come in the next season (Ainz has some pretty big plans according to what I've read). I'm not expecting a lot of action for season 3 or at least the first half but I'm sure we'll be rewarded quite handsomely (if they adapt the chapters in order like they have been). Like I said before things should get quite a bit more interesting going forward.

    Coming back to this topic seriously. Ratchet & Clank is a blast. I had a lot of fun playing it, but the final boss fight has your pet peeve where the mechanics are really different, and is much harder than the rest of the super casual game play. You'll have to tell me how it worked out for you. For me I just used the preorder weapon to demolish him. That thing was ultra OP.

  20. DeathscytheX liked a reply to a status update by Strider Hiryu in I caught up on Overlord's season 2 simuldub. So far it's entertaining but all over   
    Overlord was pretty much saved by the fans and Funi (was extremely happy to see it was green lit for a 3rd season). Season 2 has been hit or miss (still haven't watched ep 13 yet (see CR just put it up), I'll watch it Friday night when I continue watching Steins;Gate) but considering what they're building toward shit will get interesting next season (yea, I read ahead on the wiki for it so I already know whats going to happen). Plus seeing Sebas kick some serious ass has been a high point for me this season (and seeing Cocytus wipe the floor with those lizard people was fucking awesome). I still miss the action of season 1 but this has been a fun trip so far plus it's nice to see them do some character building, I felt last season didn't really introduce the character well enough (well the human ones, though I do wish they'd go into who Victim is a little more then they have. Based on what the wiki says he's the most powerful NPC in Nazerick with the exception of one that has yet to be introduced).
    I haven't given anything on Netflix the time of day considering most of what they're producing just doesn't interest me. I give them props for giving original anime a shot but they all pretty much follow the same formula. Shit I still download shit thought I will admit I do a lot less then I did 3 years ago, Crunchyroll has spoiled me too much with all they're getting recently (I'm like a kid in a candy store with all the shit they're getting licenses for).
