Are we talking about the same article?  Because I'm talking about the Dragon Age article that's got MysterD pooping his load about Joplin and in it they clearly try to but the blame on EA and them wanting a game as a service and putting pressure on Bioware for all that.  Sounds like you might be talking about the original Anthem article.

Yeah, we are. My bad I was still thinking about the Anthem article... Frankly, I'm still confused how Kotaku managed to post two honest to goodness interesting articles in the same quarter let alone same month.

Today I googled "should i play trails in the sky or trails of cold steel first" and guess what popped up as the first hit?

 

How to Get Into Trails, One of the Best RPG Series Out There.  Another informative short article from Kotaku telling me exactly what I wanted to know.  It's neatly tailored, personalized, and completely applicable to my interests.   I'm now a few hours into TiTS 1 even though I thought I was going to be starting Cold Steel this week.  It's pretty fun.  I'm playing it from my PC over Steam Link on the living room TV which is working out pretty well so far.

Was the answer “You should play with TiTS first because, come on, they’re TiTS”?

Because it should have been.

I made mention that I would post thoughts on the Sharpshooter specialization when I had finished it...  I did that a few days ago, had the important stuff done way before then, I've just been lazy.

 

The Tac-50 Sniper Rifle is better than it was, it was prone to missing the first shot, but it still...  I don't know... Lacks something.  I'm not expecting to one shot kill named enemies but it does lackluster damage to elites.  I honestly feel that non tanked, non named elites should just be put down with this thing.  That would be cool.  As is?  Heh, I'm not too disappointed that special ammo is dropping like it should be.

 

That said, the top part of the tree.  The Weapon handling, headshot damage, and reload speed works with any class of weapon.  There's also a talent in the bottom right that gives 10% headshot damage to your teammates if they are closer to the target than you.  This makes it a surprisingly good specialization.  I've used an AR and rifle build nearly the entire time leveling it and its worked amazingly well.

 

Note: I don't like my armor kits jacked with so I don't ever put those three points into that part.  I also rarely (okay, never changed my skills) so those skill changed I've not played around with.

You'll appreciate them more having playing Sky fc, sc, and 3rd.  But not necessary.  They are amazing games.  I remember getting a little impatient with FC during my first playthough (they've been appropriately described as a "slow burn").  Abuse the turbo function, just don't skip dialogue and don't drop it early.  A lot of the game's strength really shines at the end of fc.

I've been happy with Survivalist but, yeah, that armor perk is no good.  I don't think I've ever had a time where:

(a) Someone near me was out of armor

(b) I was also out of armor

© They stayed near me long enough for me to replace my own armor including the extended replacement time

 

The always either move or just replace/repair their own armor (which takes less time than me doing mine) in some way first.  And I'm left with the extra armor repair time.

Microsoft has 3 Months of Gamepass for $1.  Pretty good deal even if you manage to just play 1 game.  PC gamepass is limited but some good stuff on there - newest Forza game, Crackdown 3, Recore, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves, Gears of War 4.

After about 100 hours, I'm pretty burned out on Div 2.  I'm 160 in the grenade launcher, about 145 in the crossbow, and 24 of 30 on the new seasonal loot chests as of a couple days ago.  There are a number of things that need to get fixed.  Special ammo almost never drops, it also resets when you join or leave other players instances.  I keep getting all this 481-495 equipment, and have to spend a bunch of time micromanaging all the worthless drops and useless skill mods.  The skill mod system is still completely borked.  The tradeoff for losing perks and passive abilities in order to equip set items isn't worth it, especially when bonuses like '10% dmg to armor' don't work.   But most of all once you spend a good amount of time playing at the level cap, the sense of rewarding progression becomes all but nonexistent.  I don't find upgrades anymore.   I haven't been finding ARs that are any better than the ones I was using at 450.  Still haven't found the AR extended mag blueprint so AR builds are a little out of the question right now. Another really annoying thing is the 24 hour loot box timer that keeps resetting and giving you empty chests if anyone in your group opens it again. 

 

Mostly, I'm just not finding many meaningful upgrades.  So I haven't felt motivated to spend all this time maximizing my equipment with a poor rate of return when they are just going to reset the loot treadmill again in a couple months anyways. 

 

It's a blast of a game;  I love it.   The Division 2 is excellent.  It's really fun opening the seasonal loot chests and acquiring other unique cosmetic apparel.  But the game doesn't respect my time investment right now. I'm putting it down until they can get some of these important fixes implemented.

Played BioShock... again. Didn't experience any issues with the remaster. We'll see about 2, which seems to be an even worse offender.

Gamepass is awesome, but I keep waiting for them to put more games on PC for it. They've been hinting that they have plans to beef up gamepass on PC for like a year now.

The new canon books (before Ep VII came out) stated that the Emp sent out these "robots" all over the universe with his face and were programmed to sew chaos.  They were the reason most of the shit fell because the Emperor took his toys and went home.  So it'd be badass if they pulled it all together.  Hell Hux's dad was the one who was brainwashing all the kids in the first place.  I just wish they had made the First Order not act like a bunch of stooges.  These are supposed to be SMART enemies.  They're not dumb.  But they are comically stupid in the new movies.

Eh, my guess is that they're all giant turds and think they know better than everyone else so the whole point of the last movie is to set everything on fire, ruin all the best toys so noone can use them ever again, and then piss on the ashes. 

After this next movie, there's probably no more Sith and Jedi, and Rey will become a "Skywalker" and train future "Skywalkers".

Thus, when we get to the next trilogy, it'll be about how the Skywalkers are fighting Darkwalkers.

 

Disney doesn't care. They've made their money and can keep the entire franchise under lock and key forever, send it to the Disney Vault for 20 years and trot it out when current brats are wanting to feel nostaligic.

"Boy, some people hated that last movie, huh?"

"How do we put their asses back in the theater seats for the next one?"

"Let's do the Death Star again."

"No, we already did that."

"How about instead of a new Death Star, let's show the remains of an old one."

"Yes... that could work..."

"And we'll bring back Palpatine for good measure."

"Brilliant! The fanboys will be creaming themselves all over again."
