  1. Lol -- my bad writing.
  2. To each their own. We all have different tastes.
  3. To me it is a "meh". However, everytime I say that, the thread is filled with others exclaiming it is the best month ever....
  4. April PS Plus Free Games Drawn To Death, PS4 Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, PS4 Invizimals: the Lost Kingdom, PS3 Alien Rage – Extended Edition, PS3 10 Second Ninja, PS Vita (crossbuy with PS4) Curses ‘n Chaos, PS Vita (crossbuy on PS4
  5. Time for a new case?
  6. I still haven't played Watch_Dogs -- let alone the sequel -- have purchased both since last fall... Almost finished TitanFall 2, 10 hours of MGS 5 played a bit of CoD:IW, Wolfenstein (New Order/Old Blood), XCOM2, The Witness, Shadow Warrior 2, Quantum Break, Ryse, The Order -- never touched.. There are also games I have now purchased on multiple systems, yet never played like Skyrim... Or played just a little XCOM and GTAV... Then there are the classic like RE4 (only played the first level) -- and I don't even have a PS2 to play it anymore.... Great games I already own. Then this week.... Mass Effect: Andromeda, The Witcher 1/2/3 and the Square Enix mystery box....
  7. Only rumours I have seen still talk about a late May reveal..... And only speculation on power/price/release timing for the variants....
  8. From what I've seen? The version I played of the following are all PC/Ultra @ 1440p or PS4 (non-pro). Doom Rise of the Tomb Raider Battlefield 1 Horizon: Zero Dawn Uncharted 4 Forza Horizon 3 I just prefer games with a "very detailed"/"Highly technical" art style. I just don't appreciate games with a simpler art style.... YMMV
  9. Is it a sickness? Just bought: Witcher 1 -- $1.49 Witcher 2 -- $2.99 Witcher 3 GOTY -- $24.99
  10. My Raiders will finally have a decent stadium! And I will be able to go to a Raiders home game, without having to visit the Bay Area!
  11. Lol. I've never spent that little on a TV (well, not since I graduated from college, at least)... Then again, I tend to keep my TVs for a lot longer than most of the folks here....
  12. @SFLUFAN Based on the video it is 10AM Pacific, 1 PM Eastern. One of my kids keeps asking me why I haven't played Destiny recently..... Hopefully Destiny 2 brings me back in...
  13. Just pulled the trigger as GMG selling the keys for $43.99 -- figured that waiting for a $29.99 sale was probably going to take 3-4 months.... Now, I just have to get Horizon: ZD off my plate before getting into this one....
  14. Another third-party Switch game causes uproar Lego City Undercover is the next major third-party port heading to Nintendo Switch, but early copies are already turning some console owners off of the game. It turns out that even physical versions of the Switch remaster require a hefty, internet-enabled data download. Although Lego City Undercover isn’t due at retail until April 4, some stores already have it in stock. One retail-working Reddit user whose store now has copies noticed that the game case indicates that an internet connection is required, even to play the cartridge. “Up to 13 GB storage required for game download” is the reason why, as the packaging notes. That’s a sizable portion of the Nintendo Switch’s hard drive space, which is capped at 32 GB. While PlayStation 4 and Xbox One games require installs even when playing games on disc, that a Switch title arrives with a similar download has many Nintendo fans baffled. “Are they out of their minds?” wrote an especially infuriated commenter. “So people buying physical to save on downloads and memory are still getting screwed? I hope this doesn't become a thing where publishers cheap out on the physical card size and force consumers to basically download the entire game.” There’s been speculation about Nintendo Switch cartridge sizes, particularly their capacity. While games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild load up from the game card with ease, outlets like Eurogamer questioned whether publishers could opt into using smaller-sized cartridges for their games. That’s tied up in production costs and other variables that may lead to certain third-party games hitting the Switch at higher prices. Rime and Minecraft: Story Mode caused stirs earlier this month when retailers listed them at higher prices than their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One counterparts. TequilaWorks, Rime’s publisher, told concerned Switch owners that the game was more expensive on Switch due to the increased cost of manufacturing on that console. Lego City Undercover won’t cost more on Switch than it does on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, at least, but the required install may diminish some of the benefit of buying it physically on the new Nintendo system. First released on Wii U back in 2013, the game is now part of that console’s budget-priced Selects program for $19.99. By comparison, the remaster — which has a co-op mode and other exclusive features — will go for $59.99 at launch. More disappointing to many is that this is yet another third-party game that seems to arrive on Switch with a big caveat. Lego City Undercover — and Rime, and Minecraft: Story Mode — offers the same content as what’s on other platforms, but the pain point of installing the game, or paying more to play on the Nintendo console, has left Switch owners frustrated with its currently slim third-party catalogue. We’ve contacted publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment about the required download and will update accordingly.
