  1. E3 2018

    I honestly think Rage 2 reveal was pushed forward after the Walmart reveal. It still wasn’t a well kept secret perhaps but I think had the games list not been spoiled they may have waited for closer to E3 (because really I don’t see it being a huge issue to change the dates a bit). As for the Walmart reveal, I think they handled it very well. They drew attention back to themselves and poked fun at Walmart. Then slowly teased a handful more of images.
  2. Rage 2

    Haven’t watched the trailer but I’m betting they pushed this reveal up after Walmart’s goof. Hence the tweet followed by the Instagram posts with the same type of editing and pink writing.
  3. E3 2018

    https://www.instagram.com/bethesda/?hl=en They added a further 3 images. Almost all of them show 5-14 somewhere in the picture, so I’m guessing the announcement is tomorrow.
  4. E3 2018

    Looks like Bethesda is working on revealing Rage 2 in a slightly more official way.
  5. Looks like some straight NES type castlevania there. Im out. I’m less than good at those old 8bit games that thrive on being unforgiving. I’m in for a SOTN style where I don’t have to pull my hair out playing.
  6. I’m anti micro transactions anything. So loot boxes fall into that even if they’re purely cosmetic items and skins. I’m not against having unlockable or random drops of these items, just that they’re often sold, and with random chance i.e. gambling. Remove the whole thing of buying the boxes and I don’t see how it’s different from grinding for drops in Destiny or Borderlands or any other RPG. In short Overwatch does it better than most by staying cosmetic, I just disagree with them allowing for people to pay additional money beyond their original purchase price, for a chance at a skin being perceived as rare due to artificial drop rates. Also, in years past, skins and shit like that were often just made for free by modding communities.

    Ha! Rage/Bethesda’s responses are pretty great. I think Rage 2 was already heavily rumored anyway. Plus there is the fact that their response of marking up the page could easily just be a joke response that means nothing.
  8. Days Gone (PS4)

    Reading the bullet points makes me think of Horizon. Didn’t that skip a few shows too? It had more hype due to the initial concept being more obvious and unique. Plus it was coming from a more proven developer.
  9. Dragon Quest XI

    If I wanted to play a non turn based Dragon Quest I’d go play DQHeroes Actually I should do that. I never did finish the first one. Point is though, numbered DQ games need to be classic turn based. None of that real time shit or ATB systems. Only concession I might make could be a FFX style character switching gimmick, but there’s no real need for that, and doing so would remove something from what makes Dragon Quest, Dragon Quest. Disclaimer: I’m sleep deprived.
  10. Xbox One Console Discussion

    You may be in luck because I believe the HD collection is playable on Xbox One.
  11. Xbox One Console Discussion

    My suggestion is just play the intro of MGSV (because that intro is damn fantastic!) and then play MGS3 instead. V is fun to play in ways and is technically quite impressive, but it just doesn’t grab you in the same way. A failing of the open world I think.
  12. God of War (PS4)

    Credit roll. Is it perfect, no. Is it a masterpiece, maybe. Is it a damn fine excellent piece of media, definitely. Ah well. I’m gonna go pass out now cause it’s 4 am. Back to nightshift for me.
  13. Ikaruga Heads To Switch

    Hard pass. I am awful at shmups and even worse at Bullet Hell. It’s nice to see the game getting more love though I suppose. Maybe It’ll Garner a sequel one day as opposed to just continued rereleases. Also maybe Radiant Silvergun might get a release for this gen as well. Both games hit the 360 so why not.
  14. Arrested Development Season 4

    While I wish the scheduling wasn’t an issue for them, I think they worked around it in a very good way. It may be more fragmented but the story was still there and mostly cohesive.

  16. God of War (PS4)

  17. God of War (PS4)

    Going more in depth with the Norse mythology I think is more a side effect of how much they changed the style of this game. They could easily have gone into such depth with Greek Mythos had the game been in such a style as to present it. Sure they could have had little bits of exposition tucked away into random totems spread about the levels but given how much more focused and hack and slashy GoW 1-3 were it wouldn’t have fit as well. The narrative of those games was told in the manner befitting the gameplay.
  18. Drunken thread ftw!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. God of War (PS4)

    Annnnd yet another patch this morning. It’s kind of comical. On the plus side hopefully though 1.17 undoes the HDR fucker that 1.16 caused. My reds were causing purple ghosting.
  22. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Yeah but how many of them were people accidentally buying the old one when they wanted the new? Hmmm? Probably like....3?
  23. God of War (PS4)

    The daily patches are a little tiring. At least they’re small and I’m sure they’re needed but come on, all this can’t be packaged into one for the end of the week? Unless it was something game breaking of course.
  24. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    I usually don’t notice the fan noise. God of War is the exception, I definitely hear it ramping up. As for TIM, basically as long as they used something the difference between the types isn’t that huge. Hell you can use cheese if you want.
  25. God of War (PS4)

    I’m still slowly plugging away at this. I’m only playing an hour or two at a time and more or less trying to exhaustively explore each area before progressing.
