Was it like war trying to get one? I've never rushed to get anything before other than RHCP tickets in 2011 and that surprisingly worked out.
I'm gonna get Pulse headphones too.

Damn! You're a world renowned silent assassin! I'll take your word on the review, but even a weaker link Hitman in this current trilogy is still pretty great. Just might be a hard pill to swallow paying full price.
Seems like Microsoft and Activision are in a contest to make the most terrible decision they possibly can. Maybe if everybody gives Activision shit, they’ll revert too.
That company usually manages to make quality content but they care so much more about the “names” of their IPs than they do the quality of the title and who makes them. At what point do any and all of their franchises lose their identity?
I don't know enough about business and the stock market (hence why I'm a salaried chump) so I have questions...
A) How does a company "raise billions"? Do they just sell a bunch of assets or beg for more investors?
B) Don't some publicly traded companies like, say, EA have national laws (i.e. US Federal Laws) to fight against international takeovers?
WOW - that's pretty bad news in my eyes. I know VV spent their entirety providing support across Activision titles, but they were at their best when they got full control over their own games (i.e. GB Advanced THPS games, and this newest Remaster). I'd be less concerned if it wasn't for this statement from Activision: [VV will be] "fully dedicated to existing Blizzard games and initiatives"
To me, that reads as support staff for Blizzard and only Blizzard. Diablo 4 must need the help. Especially because the name Vicarious Visions was holding so much weight this past generation. Damn shame because Activision will probably just not make a THPS 3 + 4 or if they do, they'll pay some joke of a company like Robomoto to do it again.
I don’t care if I’m in the mindset of a rabid consumerist, I cannot wait to get a PS5 with 3D Pulse Headphones and play Resident Evil 8.
Capcom’s turnaround with this series has been magic and I feel compelled to find a way to tell them. I know it’s weird getting so excited for a non-demo but this series has made such good progress and RE7 / RE2 was some of the most fun I’ve had gaming this past decade.
My 15" Macbook Pro from 2012 had a good run but she's completely on the fritz along with my girlfriends Macbook something or other so I was thinking we might go half on a new laptop. She needs it for general computer stuff like web browsing and PDF's, while I figure I can use it to hook PC games up to my living room TV.
Does anybody have any laptop recommendations that are capable of playing games? I'm not looking for cutting edge here, but I'm very far removed from the laptop world. From my experience, laptops get slow and shitty very fast (especially Mac's) so I'd prefer to get a brand that isn't full of bloat and won't have a seizure every Windows update. I know my old work computers were Dell and those were full of bullshit programs that I don't need.
Does anyone have any brand suggestions?
FYI, I have a desktop PC which is great but the only reason I still use my Mac is because I need to use Final Cut Pro 7 (from 2009) for work due to this archaic script we run which was coded by somebody who left our company over a decade ago and we've been too lazy to move on. Now all of the editing Mac's at work physically cannot run FCP7 and my laptop is the only one capable of it so long as I don't update the OS.
Basically, if this Macbook kicks the bucket, our entire pipeline is completely fucked unless we code something new that works with Premiere Pro ASAP. Our I.T. is already on it, but this laptop holds a dangerous amount of weight that we absolutely should not lean on. I've been telling my boss for years but he prefers to see the fire first and put it out later.
Yeah I guess I gave no context either. My bad.
Re: ND's next game - still hard to tell what the direction will be. I guess "fantasy" but I wonder if they'll continue the trend of interactive narratives. We already have 3rd person "sword" combat in God of War as well as the ND-like storytelling so I wonder if this would have differentiation in any way. RPG and fantasy always go hand n hand.
