The Ubisoft Reward for the Best Game Released in an Unfinished and Buggy State: Mass Effect- Andromeda.
RE: The APRIL Video Game Madness Bracket
@capnbobamous I'm voting against ME this round, despite my love for it.
Of course, that's what makes this so dang MADDENING. It's Darlings vs Babies! Kill or let be murdered! This will end in blood and tears while we all sweat out the results and I am HERE for it!
RE: Epic Games Store
I don't care too much about additional installers anymore, I've become numb to it. However, the fragmentation of tertiary benefits of using different services is kinda maddening.
I like achievements. They're a fun, additional little thing that means nothing more than trophy points, cheevo numbers, etc, in most cases (although Ubi's system nets you some fun currency to spend on silly stuff, which I find fun). The fact that none of my achievements just "show up" all in one place is kind of a letdown, which is why I signed up for Raptr and XFire back in the day. Sadly, they both are defunct and that centralizing force is gone.
I also like knowing that if I buy something in game, it's attached to something I can count on existing in the future. Fortunately, some companies have their own internal system for tracking your digital "stuff," but not all do. This is probably my biggest complaint about MCTs (is that the acronym we're using?) don't always follow you from system to system or service to service, unless less the dev and platform holder deign it so. Much worse, there are few judicial decisions or laws written to protect consumers from have to buy or license content multiple times.
So, I can understand the anger, frustrations, etc, but some seem to be mad about the wrong thing, or mad about something that hasn't really happened. I'm fortunate enough to have not invested too much into certain games to the point of being effected by this, yet, but if I did lose the thousands of dollars in gaming investment I put into my Steam library because of strong-arming by another company, I'd be livid. Worse still, these companies can afford to take it all to court and potentially screw over consumers in a big way (I don't know, help me, someone, who is a lawyer).
This is meandering, but let's try something: ignore the ridiculous reactions and knee-jerk commentary. Don't be unreasonable, and don't respond to the ridiculous crybabies (I know, they're there, but they're not thinking critically, but we are, right?) I want to know why YOU have a problem with this. Or, why you don't.
Again, for me, I prefer a centralized place for the content I purchased so I know what I own, I don't want to purchase it more than once, and I want to be able to play with who I want to play with (I miss hosting private servers). Epic is isolating not only titles, but whole developers and that specific segmentation make me sad.
RE: How do you feel about the security issues Europe is facing
I feel like a gaming forum is the last place I want to hear any more about it.
RE: Loosing my will to play videogames....
I'm with ya there sometimes. I have a HUGE Steam back log, games on my PS4, PS3, Wii and Wii U I have yet to play, let alone load up. Not to mention all of the things I want to watch or listen to. There's just so much!
Here's the thing that helped me: knowing I don't have to do all of it. It's ok to start a game, walk away and not go back to it immediately. It means I flit around from thing to thing, and some games I set down for months before going back to, but that's ok.
When I DO find something that grabs my attention, I am able to go in and just enjoy it. NMS is doing that for me right now, which is nice, and it allows me to listen to music, podcasts and passively watch things that don't require direct focus (LPs, simple, serialized TV, etc).
The deluge of content can be stressful, so try not to worry about it. Just know it's ok not to finish, just be sure you're enjoying yourself.
RE: Anime Openings
@SabotageTheTruth Hahah, right?! It's the great music by The Pillows episode to episode that fools ya!
I still love the American DBZ opening. Simple, short and full of metal guitar. Joyous.
And while everone seems to love Jojo's credits, the first season's opening was amaaaaazing! "A fate determined by his blood," just feels good to read in rhythm (in English) to Tominaga Hiroaki belting that line out in Japanese. Always give me goosebumps.
RE: Selective Creation: Make the Best NES/SNES List!
@Brannox Yeah, I did it for myself to see what's there easier. :) I'm surprised by the number of things I've NEVER heard of that look amazing.

RE: I guess I WILL be going to the anniversary meet and greet... (UPDATE)
@Mango I won't get into it, but to put it mildly, I'm furious and sad.
RE: Your top 10 Games of 2017
In no Particular Order... (but not really because I loved Gorogoa):
Assassin's Creed Origins
Does it Count?
FFXII: The Zodiac Age
What Remains of Edith Finch
The Sexy Brutale
And those are the only 10 games from 2017 I own. I've managed to buy 10 all year. And I haven't played 3 of those, yet.
EDIT: OMG Nex Machina is fuuuuun!
