Yeah, as someone who probably spends way too much time confined indoors, fewer reasons to go outside is something I do not need.

My apologies for my absence, they went and made a new Ace Combat and a new Devil May Cry both of which were actually good this time, and I was undone.

You can't make a game about war, glorifying it for entertainment and be surprised that war is very gritty and harsh

Can't spell ignorant without IGN.

Okay, that's the last straw. I'm tying up a noose to hang myself with. Nice knowing you all, keep it real.

funkychinaman 06-20-2019 02:25 AM

Oh settle down. For all the hysteria Batman casting has caused in the past thirty years, how much of proved to be properly substantiated?

Yeah chill out, it's not like batman hasn't always been super duper gay

An unwritten rule among Batman fans is that we don't talk about that.

How many versions of Charlie's Angels does the world need?

And just as I was thinking "Patrick Stewart should be above this," I remembered he did both Ted movies.

S&Wshooter 06-28-2019 03:19 AM

Didn't Patrick Stewart play the poop emoji in that one movie?

Dear lord, the woman pandering is dialed up to 11 for this.

S&Wshooter 06-29-2019 09:35 PM

I gave Rising Storm 2 another shot, and no joke it'd really benefit from some low-level only servers (like as an option) so you aren't thrown in with dudes that know each and every map like they lived there for 30 years. If you got an opportunity to learn it'd be Red Orchestra 2 tier fun

funkychinaman 07-08-2019 05:07 AM

COD: WWII is a great game, I got it a few weeks ago and I can't stop playing it, so I get it. But as disliked as Infinite Warfare was, I'm surprised it still sold more than Battlefield 1.

I'm shocked everyone came back, especially Emma Stone.

I'm in.

LOL @ the Barack Obama "Hope" poster.

Edit: I don't see why Emma Stone wouldn't have returned. Sure, she's won some awards, but she still isn't really that big. If there was anyone I'd have thought wouldn't return, it would have been Woody.

Woody chased awards in the nineties, but I think he's done with that. You'd think winning a Best Actor/Actress Oscar within the last three years would preclude someone from A) sequels and B) horror/comedies.

Spartan198 07-26-2019 07:45 PM

Okay, The Boys is soooo unkind to Aquaman through its expy, The Deep. XD

Edit: Also, interesting turn of events, I got an invite to participate in Ghost Recon Breakpoint's online technical test. Looks like this is going to be Ubi's chance to sell me on it. Can't get any screencaps for IMFDb due to an NDA, though.

Damn. Well in the mean time, I've just uploaded some pics of my guns

Spartan198 07-26-2019 11:51 PM

Besides, even if I did want to spill the beans, damn game won't even start and every topic that gets made about it gets moved to their private OTT forum which I can't access for any assistance.

Nice job, Ubi. Really making me want to shell out $60 on this. :rolleyes:

S&Wshooter 08-03-2019 01:58 AM

Just got Kingdom Come: Deliverance on PS4, basically just to get more use out of it

Ultimate94ninja 08-09-2019 02:00 PM

A couple of days ago, I defeated that giant Gonarch crab from the newly released update of the Black Mesa remake... on hard difficulty, and that was one hell of a pain in the ass. For those who felt that the Gonarch fight from the original Half-Life was very hard, you haven't seen anything yet, trust me.

EDIT: they now released a hotfix to make that boss less overpowered (I haven't seen how much, though).

By far the hardest gaming experience for me was Batman: Arkham Knight on Knightmare difficulty.

So, it seems Pattinson claims to be a legit Batman fan, so that brings me a little relief and puts me in more of a "wait and see" mode.

funkychinaman 09-03-2019 07:09 PM

Well, we don't really have any other option than "wait and see".

(I think he'll be fine.)

funkychinaman 09-04-2019 04:55 PM

Ugh, why?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbaUcwjshOs

The previous movie was an absolute turd, and while Will Smith doesn't look a day over forty, Martin Lawrence... not so much.

I'm not expecting much. Actually I waited to watch the other two after they showed up on HBO. I didn't even bother renting them. Very doubtful I'll even watch this one.

funkychinaman 09-11-2019 08:54 PM

Let me just state, I liked the original Face/Off. But I liked it because it was a goofy John Woo movie. If they're not bringing back John Woo, or whoever his modern equivalent (the John Wick guy?), what the point?

ey fuck Face/Off but one of the very few possible ways to unfuck the current (lame, stupid) state of modern action movies is to get John Woo making shit like Hard Boiled again, and/or directors and writers start ripping off his OG Hong Kong action movies hard

Truth be told, I think I've outgrown John Woo. Windtalkers might have been one of the worst movies I've ever seen. He's got one gimmick, and he's run it into the ground. The most recent John Woo movie I saw was Red Cliff, and even though it's a Chinese historical costume drama, it's still unmistakably a John Woo movie.

So I looked on his IMDB page to see when Red Cliff came out, and look what I found:

S&Wshooter 09-12-2019 03:25 AM

Yes this is why I said "his OG Hong Kong action movies" specifically

Ultimate94ninja 09-12-2019 08:33 AM

Face/Off remake huh? Big mistake. There's no way it will be even remotely as fun as the original.

Although, the fact that our beloved Scarface (which itself was a remake) is also being remade is an even worse thing.

S&Wshooter 09-15-2019 05:11 PM

I got Mafia III cheap, and honestly it's totally $15 fun, even maybe $20 fun if you're being charitable, but no way $60 fun. I like it so far, but I can see why people complained about glitches and really dumb AI.

funkychinaman 09-17-2019 02:31 PM

Why not just pick up Blood and Chrome rather than create a THIRD version of BSG?

Takes place in or around the year 7000 AD, but yet all the guns will still be 20th century designs using chemically-based projectile ammunition. lol

Well, second BSG takes place in the prehistoric past. The original series takes place in contemporary times, but they use energy weapons.

If you want to talk longevity, the Assault Rifle in Halo, which takes place in the 26th century, not only uses chemical-based projectiles, but is chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO.

funkychinaman 09-20-2019 05:52 PM

You'd think he'd just lean into it at this point. I was half expecting his character to get hit by a car at the end of The Martian.
