Damn. DBZ is getting solid ratings. Sitting at 76%. So that’s like -6 points I think for my Counter Pick

RE: Cyberpunk 2077 (XBO/PS4/PC)
Sometimes I forget that Cyberpunk 2077 was announced before The Witcher 3.
Despite how much I love The Witcher, I was anticipating this more because its something new. I wonder what history would look like if they stuck to Cyberpunk and did TW3 after? I think this game is going to be bigger and better than ever because of that decision. What's another few months I guess...?
RE: Vote for the forum's GOTY 2019!
I just sent my list in.
Despite not entirely finishing every game on my list, the ones I couldn't wrap up were battling for the #4 spot anyways. I had one omission that seems to be appearing on everyone's GOTY but I'm just not feeling it nearly as much as everyone else.
RE: 2020 in FPS, who will stand tall?
I’m not biting on VR yet but I have faith that Half Life Alyx will be a system seller and a universally praised game. I think we’re looking at the bar for VR FPS with this one.
I’m rooting for Halo Infinite but I am very very sceptical. Since Halo was dethroned, 343 Industries approach to Halo been chasing their own tail. They made Halo 4 & 5 have some Halo DNA but also injected a bunch of generic mainstream FPS traits into it as well. The final result were nothing games. Nobody remembers them or thinks of them fondly.
Whereas Overwatch took the class based FPS and spun it into something new, Titanfall sped up FPS games again and Call of Duty copies them. Other developers were trying new things while Halo was just confused in its own identity.
Now with Halo Infinite, they know something needs to change and rather than necessarily being original and innovative, going back to their roots as an arena shooter with weapon pickups would really stand out in the market in 2020. No multiplayer is like that anymore and it could create a renaissance if done well.
Add on a full Campaign mode which will likely have co-op and you’ve got the full package.
I have HOPE but not necessarily FAITH that Halo will be the best FPS in 2020.

I hate betting low on Halo because I have some faith, but at the same time, 343 as an adept studio is still entirely unproven to me. By taking on Halo, they've essentially taken it in no direction up to this point. Added some mainstream features like customization, lots of sprinting, loadouts, simpler maps. They've been so safe an inoffensive with Halo that they've inadvertently become generic and many people looked away.
I hope they reel it in but I'm doubtful. I guessed 82 but I'm hoping for a 99...
RE: Last movie you watched
This is a fantastic yet gimmicky film. It’s funny because it plays out like each scene exists to make you feel tense, scared, sad, but the director has you wrapped around your finger and he gets you feeling the way he’s aiming for every scene.
They use tried and true techniques to achieve what they’re going for whether it’s horror, action, tension. Nothing is particularly new about this film but it knocks every scene out of the park.
My main problem with the film is that there is this consistent serendipity that moves the plot forward. The events are just as likely as a bird crapping on your head three times in one day but the bird is an airplane that happens to fall out of the sky right above you.
There is also a major annoyance I had with this river that gets introduced in the last 20 minutes and the logical side of my brain was trying to figure out how the movie will play out taking this river into account but then the script throws logic out of the window and I wish I knew that sooner.
It’s a great film. It reminds you that we all have it good and sometimes I need that reminder. From scene to scene everything is working: the set, the action, the horror. Hell, this movie has better horror scenes than most in the genre. That said, the lack of logic in the script at times sort of bothers me and the transitions between scenes are a bit crass.
7.5-8/10 (can’t decide)
RE: What dreams are left ? Share yours !
I have another dream but it doesn't exist and never will.
We need a new 50 Cent game made by Naughty Dog, made with the same love and attention in all respects just as Uncharted and TLOU are. Now I'm not 100% sure what the tone would be but it needs to be filled with scenes that serve to show how awesome 50 Cent is. Kinda like how in First Blood everybody is like "Do you know who you fucked with?! This is John Rambo - Green Beret!".
Knowing that 50 Cent and G-Unit are already globetrotters, I say this game should be a globetrotting adventure romp kinda like Uncharted but less lighthearted. 50 Cent is a menace to society and pretty unhinged at times. I just don't know what the plot motivation would be. Maybe he needs to extract some ancient berries from the Amazon rain forest to use as an ingredient in his energy drink company back in the US and he'll stop at no end to bring them back home.
