I am a fan, have played all seasons and I am invested in the story. I just disagree with having to purchase the whole season upfront and not being able to piecemeal purchase if I'd like. Maybe I play Ep.1 soon after release ... but when FH4 or whatever else drops, I might not play the other episodes the minute they are released. It might be a few months or even a year down the road. Honestly don't understand why this position is so devisive here. Why put up the money for the other episodes that far in advance? This is clearly a tactic by the publisher to rope you in to comittitng financially to the entire season or sitting it out. It is not consumer friendly ... just a way to raise capitol. That is their decision. I'm not required to like it. And if I don't like this change, it doesn't make me a heel, tepid TWD fan or some sort of non-legit CAG because I don't go tripping over myself to advance the publisher money.

Agree to disagree

I understand what you you're saying but imo that doesn't make sense when we're on the 4th season, 20 episodes in. Just wait for the whole game to release and go on sale then? If this was some new episodic title or a new TT franchise sure, but at this point you know what you're getting

Sorry, pet peeve. Bioshock got remastered, RE2 is the definition of a remake from the ground up.

 

But yes, goddamn it looks amazing. I will probably do the Prime discount preorder even though I know it'll hit $20 $10 or GWG, or Gamepass, eventually.

Sorry pet peeve of mine.    Fixed your last sentence for you... :)

That's kind of BS. They expect me to front them a 2-5 month interest-free loan. No thanks ... moving on. Talk about stamping out my interest. I'll circle back when it goes on sale.

 

Which is what I do with all their games already.  I rather play it when all the episodes are out anyway.  I binge them just like TV series on Netflix.

I agree. And I can find an hour or so to play an episode of TWD if I wanted to even with FH4, Spiderman and maybe Tomb Raider. TWD is one of the few games my wife will sit and watch me play. Wife approved gaming time!

Playstation has great looking limited edition consoles and XBox has the better looking limited edition controllers seems to be the weird unwritten law.

Now I'm wondering if I received points for buying dead cells, I looked on the rewards page but I can't see any history for how and when points were given?

Really? I've thought most PS4 LE consoles have looked like total trash, the God of War one was laughable and the new Spiderman while a cool design feels like it would look so gaudy after a few weeks of a giant bright red thing in my entertainment center. The translucent blue they have for 500,000,000 Playstations sold looks alright. I did like some of the dumb Xbox 360 faceplates since you could change them up.

Got that shit the 1st day out. Only time I've bought a LE console. Love the R2 noises it makes.

I Really like the Yakuza, Final Fantasy XV (which I do own!), Uncharted and the MGS designs. There are some gaudy ones for sure (the CoD WWII camouflage is a goddamn abomination), but I feel overall I just prefer their designs compared to XBox's.

Not too excited about the Gold Rush X. It looks like it needs to be dusted. I'll stick with my standard Xbox X's for now.

I liked the wood grain faceplate. Never bought one since I only ever had the white versions of the original 360 design and I think it would've only looked cool on a black one for that 70's/early 80's tech vibe like the 2600 had.

 

Never been into most LE consoles, though. I remember digging the Halo 3 and R2D2 360 consoles. Not a fan of most of the Ones as they tend to split designs across the middle. I do have the Mountain Dew version of the OG XBox, but just because I found it at a yard sale for cheap. Guy said he volunteered for the fire company and just pulled all the caps out of the trash.

Did just buy a blue controller for the XBox One as it was only a little more than a black one on Amazon and my first two were strafing and had issues with the bumper buttons. Really digging the blue one so far as I like the extra little bit of grip on the back. Not sure which all ones come with that now.

The R2 360 was awesome, that said, I have the Halo Reach 360 (like it enough, the silver is cool), the Darth Vader PS4 (simple but I like it), and I had the Gears Xbox One S which was probably my favorite looking LE console but I sold it when the X came out lol, I also have the Darth Vader PSP :P The 3DS has some of my favorite designs for CEs though, and DS had some cool ones as well, I do like the Spiderman PS4 myself.

I agree about the spiderman design, its a bit much. On the other hand i love 500m one for some reason to point i thought about it ordering it even though i dont like playstations.

I'm Xbox 4 life but I think the God of War PS4 has an amazing design to the point that I almost bought one and am even considering buying a used Gamestop one.

I’m usually a bit distracted by what’s happening on the tv to stare at my console or controller.

are we really going to keep ignoring the poor wording/grammar of this tweet? What a confusing mess. It just supports the notion that this is a stupidly named console (although that's not my own opinion).

In case anyone is wondering about the Sea of Thieves updates, I’m watching my fiancé play it with friends (can’t watch/play too long myself because something about the game not having a reticle makes me legit seasick), and they just got surrounded by two ghost ships and a Megalodon at the same time and it was hilarious to watch them scream and suffer and try (and fail) not to die. They did prevent the ship from sinking and eventually got away, but it seemed like an intense battle. So that’s a thing in the game now.

Also, on the special edition system discussion, I love my Halo 3 360 (wish I could’ve gotten the Reach one or the Star Wars one as well, but no need at the time and too late now obviously). I’m still upset that I decided not to get the ODST bundle at GameStop that had a controller with it because that controller actually seemed to match the H3 system more than the one that came with the system (extra lettering and symbols and whatnot). My weak spot is Nintendo, though. At one point I owned so many DS/3DS systems it was ridiculous. I have the NES-themed GBA SP, the Triforce DS Lite, the Ocarina 3DS small, the Pikachu 3DS XL, the Pokemon New 3DS, and the Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL (between me and the lady). Also had the Link Between Worlds 3DS XL but sold that one on eBay a while back.

First step to fixing a problem is admitting you have a problem. Second step is to stop buying stupid shit you don’t need. Third step is to start selling some of the stupid shit you’ve acquired over the years haha.

Edit: almost forgot, I’m getting the Spidey PS4, too. Been pumped for the game and I don’t own a PS4 yet and a bunch of my friends do, so it’s time to jump in on the fun. Don’t worry, I’ll jusf save everyone the time and report myself.

Anyone here owned any TCL TV for over 2 years and it’s still going good? My little one ran a toy across our 48 inch Samsung 1080p TV and now I notice some dead pixels, 6 spots. You can only notice it when your eyeball is up close, can’t see it from where we usually sit to watch, which is a good thing. But with my bday and our anniversary coming around, I think it’s time for that 4K upgrade. I’m eyeing that TCL 55 P or 6 Series since the budget is about $600ish. Although I also want to get another gaming console, so I may lean towards the 4 or 5 series so I get can both within the budget. We’ll see. We usually watch movies together mostly and I game with the little ones and when I have the time. I realized we’ve had our Sammy for 12 years now, besides having maintenance to replace the motherboard, it’s been going strong so I do like Samsungs. But I’m willing give TCL a try especially with that price.
