  1. I'm am becoming all of those things I feared of within my own and all of the other thoughts that I felt year after year.
  2. Not that it's entirely relevant, but these days I tend to give more consideration to microtransactions than I do to season passes. I am also much more inclined to pay for microtransactions in F2P games than full price games. Other than Team Fortress 2, I refuse to engage in IAPs for titles I already paid for upfront unless it's a full-fledged DLC add-on. I also will generally opt for the "unlock the full game" option if one is available for a game I like. For instance, despite being a big Pac-Man fan I did not engage with Pac-Man 256 due to its Free To Play nature, but the game was recently rereleased on consoles for $5 with all traces of IAPs cut out, and so I bought it and am having a blast.

  4. Hello all, it's me again We are living in a world where F2P gaming is a juggernaut, and increasingly becoming the easiest way for a company to monetize their product. Pokemon Go is a really recent example, and I've been seeing a lot of people saying how they don't usually buy microtransactions for games but broke that rule for Pokemon Go, and it had me wondering, how many of you out there buy microtransactions/IAPs? If you do, what games have you bought them for? Despite initially not liking the business model, these days I play a lot of F2P games. I at various times have frequently played Miitomo, Town of Salem, Happy Wars, Clash Royale, Pokemon Go and a few others but have yet to spend a dime on any of them. Counter to that though, I have spent a lot of money on Hearthstone, a handful of dollars on Team Fortress 2 (not sure if it counts since I bought the game back when it wasn't F2P though), $2.99 on Dragonmania Legends, and possibly a few others I don't recall in this moment. So tell me, what were the games that did you in, and why or why not?

    E3 2016

    Glad someone else here is a fan of Giant Bomb, their E3 coverage is/was sublime.

    E3 2016

    E3 isn't over yet (in fact it technically just began), there are plenty of announcements to come from smaller companies within the next few days, but so far here are the best and worst of E3 from my perspective: The best: Dead Rising 4 looks amazing God of War is going in an awesome direction that actually makes me care about the series Titanfall 2 looks to once again eat Call of Duty's lunch Dishonored II looks WAY better than the first game Prey is back Resident Evil 7 with VR support going back to horror roots! Xbox's Play Anywhere initiative is amazing Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best looking games at the show Horizon: Zero Dawn still is making me jealous of PS4 owners Fe is everything I want from indie games Detroit: Become Human now gives me Deadly Premonition vibes and I'm super into it Ghost Recon: Wildlands is shaping up to be awesome Fallout 4 in VR is happening! The worst: Scalebound and Final Fantasy XV have never looked worse in their demos 'New Crash' ends up being just the old games again + a Skylander Sony fails to give a good argument as to why you should get PSVR Harmonix's big Rock Band announcement was literally just a name and a price of their new expansion Days Gone looks super lame for how much time they spent on it Sports Sports Sports Watch_Dogs 2 probably isn't gonna be better than Watch_Dogs VR in general is a bummer EA showed a whole lot of nothing for most of their games In general, the conferences this year at E3 were pretty meh. Weirdly enough Nintendo still managed to excite the child in me despite only showing one game. Microsoft was really strong, just not exciting (I still don't give a damn about Gears) & Sony felt like all talk with no actual content (though they succeeded in getting me excited for God of War which I have literally never cared about).

    E3 2016

    Dead Rising 4 leaked, looks and sounds amazing. Apparently it's a re-imagining of the first game but instead of just playing in the mall you traverse the entire town with 4 player co-op. Also it's Christmas time. I'm already hyped to hell and back, a DR1 remake was all I really wanted and them somehow wrapping that into DR4 is incredible to me. This part is unconfirmed, but it is rumoured to be an Xbox One exclusive as well. Can't wait to hear more at E3. Also Harmonix is going to be talking more about Rock Band 4: Chapter 2 so of course I will be patiently awaiting that information. Usual crew should find a way to hit me up if you're at all down for the typical E3 plans so I can know whether to take off work.

    Overwatch

    I love this game, one of the best games I've played in a long, long time. Very fun. Those that know me way well will not be surprised I mainly play healers. Top 3 characters are Zenyatta - 6 hours Mercy - 4 hours D.Va - 3 hours I also play a mean Junkrat or Widowmaker from time to time. Game is great, have just over 20 hours clocked, which is insane considering I only have 24 hours clocked in Awesomenauts and I've had that game for years. I would recommend this game to literally anybody except those who physically can't play first person shooters. If they ever add cross-platform play then you can find me tearin' it up over at the Xbox One side of things
  9. I 100%'d Cel Damage HD on Xbox One a few weeks back. Gamecube version is way better
  10. Aye finish up that DP bruther. I personally have been playing DOOM. It's the hottest single player shooter around. EDIT: On the other side of the spectrum, I'm also playing through Life Is Strange for the first time, just finished episode 1. Seems really cool so far, kinda gives me Deadly Premonition vibes when it comes to characters and the little bit of jank in the game. If you're into adventure games I'd recommend giving it a look based on the bit I've played thus far.
  11. Ditto on this place being sentimental. I joined six years ago, having left several times during that time to focus on my life. There were times when I was here every day, simpler times, they were. Basically none of the people I talked to when I first joined are still here. When I came back for the first time, I met a lot of super rad people. I won't speak for them, but I personally am very attached to Dropped Your Pocket and GoldenGhost, I have a lot of memories with them. As long as they're still here, I will never truly leave. They are my online brothers. I've been here for our highs and lows. Met a lot of cool folk. We're a good community. Ambitious people. Friendly people. A lot of us dream big. Sometimes too big. I myself have had many 'projects' I have tried to manage with various people from here, and the memories from working on those will never be replicated, even if they all proved too big for me to handle. One day the people will come back. Maybe I'll be there too. Maybe it'll be fun. Just wait on those people. Or don't. Don't be afraid to live your life. The biggest reason I left was to focus on my life, find who I am, finish school, etc etc. A lot has changed since I joined here. Went from being a kid who wanted to play Alien Hominid on the Gamecube to a dude with a job and bills. I imagine a similar thing happened to a lot of the older members here. P.S. Serioustown's removal was the best thing to happen in years & Skype was a mistake.
