@phbz Horrible for an average person perhaps - it was mostly all over my head certainly, but I'm sure those with more detailed understandings found it intriguing. Personally I found Cerny to be a pretty humorous speaker so I didn't mind, I certainly wasn't expecting anything else other than that type of talk. The SSD stuff is curious, will be interesting to see examples of where that pays off relating to games... also additional storage, pricing, will be something to keep an eye on as we head toward the full unveils and launch later this year. All in all, kind of what I thought.

RE: Quasi-Official Game Screenshot Thread
Still pretty early on in Ori and the Will of the Wisps; I keep taking screenshot after screenshot. Will update with more and spoiler tag them as I enter more secret locales...
These are a little more spoilery in terms of environments, but no bosses or anything special that hasn't been seen or hinted at in a trailer.
This last one just speaks to me, all of the creatures are adorable.
@e_zed_eh_intern I'm about done with replay in all sports, which would shock a 2005 version of myself who was eager to see the creep of replay. It simply isn't applied correctly in most situations and only serves to make decisions murkier, slows the game, and drains energy.
RE: That's News!
@sentinel-beach This is a pretty Sony-heavy forum/group, doesn't really seem necessary to make one when there would be like 5 of us and some people who play on PC. I am kind of surprised at no Switch thread, but honestly I didn't even know a PS5 thread existed in the first place - this thread is where I feel a lot of that stuff is discussed anyways.
Looking forward to the next Xbox though, pleased the specs experts seem to be pretty upbeat over what's been unveiled so far. Really looking forward to the full blowout and the official unveiling of the first year+ of games.
RE: What Are You Listening To?
@bam541 Yea, I kept waiting for it to break and it just never did - could have been better, but promising.
As an aside, I was reading a post of your's elsewhere and your signature always reminds me I need to re-listen to Automatic Stop. This time I just so happened to follow through on that venture only a day after their new single, what luck! Sadly and without fail, I then proceed to listen to the album and realize I think I like at least five other songs more than your favorite.
RE: The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2019!
@ffff0 It would help to know how you've been dying before recommending where to start... but I'm not sure what a spoiler-free guide would be exactly. Information is so interwoven between the planets, and you'll personally adapt to planets differently than others that an individual guide seems pointless. Maybe your home planet and moon holds some information while being a relatively safe area to explore...
I've been surprised to hear people have been frustrated by the time it takes to return to any location after death. There are a few situations where I feel this could happen, but most any place you'll think to go early on can be returned to within 5 minutes. There was rarely a time I died where I didn't understand how to avoid that same fate on my next attempt. If I ever felt annoyed, I would typically just take off somewhere else during the next loop.
At the same time if the game doesn't elicit your own curiosity to explore, I don't see the point in forcing yourself further than an hour or so. The narrative is interesting, but so much of my enjoyment came from uncovering how to get everywhere. The drive to investigate each strange planet, and overcoming what seem to be very large hurdles were my reason to play.
RE: The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2019!
Gears is an awesome and misunderstood franchise, so I'm just glad to see that 5 was actually able to crack this year's Top 25 when 4 couldn't in 2016.
@Brannox - My biggest issue was that plot point as well, I feel the same way. It would be interesting to see a breakdown of who did like and who didn't with regards to their level of familiarity with the series.
RE: Anyone still want to start a fantasy critic league?
RE: Updated: EZA Forum FantasyCritic League 2020 Season Thread
I agree with you, I think Kyle altered the rules to his advantage, and capitalized on it. Maybe the right way to do it is to include some sort of "trade deadline" for drops. Make it prior to E3 and by that point you have to make your decision. It can extend to anything you drafted, but you have to finalize your subtractions by the beginning of June.
