  4. Soooo... E3 was... meh. The majority of “big games” shown seemed like they were mostly 2020 titles... what’s left this year? What are YOU excited for and buying on day one or near day one? For me, I can’t think of much... Pokemon Sword/Shield Gears 5 but via Gamepass since I did that “Ultimate” trick and have it until May 2022 for like ~$120 total Luigi’s Mansion 3 Maybe Doom Eternal Death Stranding is most certainly a rental for me and is, so far, turning me into a Konami sympathizer. There’s also Shenmue 3 which looks “ehhh” to me. I’ll also probably pick up that VR Wolfenstein game when it goes on sale. So, what about YOU?!?
  5. I'm caveating the living hell out of this because the documentation was submitted as part of ongoing litigation and should therefore be viewed as inherently biased.

  9. I have a weird relationship with The Witcher series. Bought and played 1 for about 2hrs, never went back. Bought 2 at launch played for about 5hrs, tried to go back 4 months later and had to restart. Got another 10hrs in and put it down. A year later I started again and it finally clicked at 15hrs where I couldnt put it down. The Witcher 3 was basically the same. Bought it at launch on PC. Played for 15hrs got sidetracked and never went back. Bought it on sale for xbox about a year ago, played for 10hrs and put it down. Early may, I picked up where I left off. since i had been through those missions now twice. I was a bit indifferent about the game until I made some fundamental changes to the way I was playing. Once I did that, it fully sunk its hooks in me and I couldnt put it down. I finished with about 73hrs on the game clock. I supposed that might seem rushed compared to other who have gotten 150+hrs out of the game, but I am fully satisfied. I did 19 of the 26 contracts and a ton of side missions. I didnt do a ton of the "?" that are littered throughout the map. In fact, I turned them off bc it was completely distracting and overwhelming to see. Sometime maybe too much content can be a bad thing. I knew there were a bunch of possibilities for the ending, but I think I got "the good one". At least Im happy with the outcome. I only restarted one critical decision when I accidentally clicked the wrong choice. I had figured fuck it and let it fly...played for 10 more minutes and said nah, I need to chose the answer I meant. In my ending Ciri Lives, She becomes a witcher. I sailed off into the sunset with that fiesty bitch Yennefer. Cerys is ruling Skellige and they are doing great and have chilled the fuck out. I took out Radavoid bc fuck those racist cunts..but it allowed the nilgaardians to basically take Novigrad, but it restored independence (to a degree) in Temeria, so all was right in the world. I had put up a long post in the "what are you playing thread" about my pros and cons and I would say much of that still stands even at the end. However there were some complete flip flops to the game play. For one, I had been frustrated with being level 7 and getting gear 10 levels ahead or more. Towards the end, when I wound up be completely over-leveled for the final missions (finished the game at level 35) all the gear I was finding was 5-10 levels lower. And it wound not mattering in the end bc the best gear in in the game are the Witcher sets. I wound up running the Bear set (mostly bc it looked the best) and upgraded it to superior all around and the mastercrafted steel sword. I ran a heavy attack/sign build/adrenaline gain build. I used the dismemberment monster trophy. Towards the end, I could 2 shot most enemies with my heavy attack. Felt good. I had also mentioned that I thought the leveling was too slow and made progress feel slow. After skillege when you go back to Kaher Morhen, I was like level 24-25. All of sudden they were basically handing out levels <<insert oprah meme>>. One mission I jumped 2 full levels. Every mission thereafter was basically 1000 points. It was just a weird an jarring change in the mechanics, but I didnt mind. It allowed me to upgrade all my gear which was awesome because it changed the look every time and got consistently more badass. Other than that, I really loved Skellige. Reminded me of Skyrim and it was definitely the best looking area of the game. Them fucking harpies tho. Im going to jump into the DLC this weekend..hopefully tackle Hearts of Stone as I hear its not terribly long, but very good. Overall though, this really makes me excited for Cyberpunk (and it would be awesome if CDPR remastered Witcher 1 and released it on the consoles). Question: Is there any must see/do side missions, contracts or "?" that really stand out that I should go do before starting the DLC?
  10. Given the GOTY is just a few weeks away, just thought I would create a place to post all things FH4. Edition Comparison -- Note these are different than FH3 Base Game ($59.99) -- FH 4 Formula Drift Car Pack Deluxe Edition ($79.99) --Base + Car Pass Ultimate Edition ($99.99) -- Deluxe + VIP + Expansion 1 + Expansion 2 + Day One Car Pack + Play 4 days early That's right -- the Deluxe edition does not contain VIP this year, but has the car pack instead. HOWEVER, the Ultimate Edition seems to have tremendous value -- all of the content from the FH3 UE -- plus both expansions included! This cost $35 extra on FH3.

  12. The "Discovery Tour" feature is truly one of the best contributions that Ubisoft has made to gaming!
  14. You know how we're kinda/sorta doing "information" threads for games that compile stuff like previews, trailers, gameplay videos into one place? Well, I posted a couple of similar threads over there and it appears to have caught on with other ERA posters. Should I sue?
  15. Their respective twitter postings are quite extensive, but definitely worth the read to see things from the perspective of a couple of military veterans with ties to the gaming industry: Their "tweet essays" were probably prompted by this article in Kotaku today: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's Developers Are Still Deciding How Disturbing To Get
  16. Goddammit why did they have to go and do that? The company behind last year's Midway, Capcom, and Atari cabinets is back with two new 3/4 scale, DIY arcade sets. The first is the Capcom Marvel Super Heroes Home Arcade Game, which features: Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men: Children of the Atom, and The Punisher. The second cabinet is the Konami Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Home Arcade Game, which includes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989) and Turtles in Time. The Konami cabinet will be the first Arcade1UP set to include four simultaneous players, just like the arcade originals.
