Pre-ordered Nier Automata (full price) and bought the Prey dlc (full price).

 

Wait, I dont think I'm doing this cheapassgamer thing right.

 

But in all honesty, Prey was so good and I love Arkane so much.  It broke my heart to see the game bomb, so I have to support them.  The DLC is actually a lot of fun, and I would recommend to any fan of the base game.

 

As for Nier, I've been following that game for almost a year, hoping against hope for an Xbox One release.  I know pre-ordering a digital game is worthless, but I coudn't help myself.

That was my take when BG&E2 was shown: This has nothing to do with the original story, gameplay wise anyways.
Also if your old like me you'll never forget how BG&E1 dropped to $20 at Circuit City two weeks after release. Or was that $10?


I got it during the $5 Circuit City sale. Those were the days.

(Cue "All in the Family" theme.)

Are you referring to one random line where one character says "jack shit". Really?

After reading your rant, I went and rewatched the trailer because I had no recollection of any cursing in the trailer. I expected to hear gratuitous f bombs, etc. I think your statement is a bit of a reach. My 2 cents.

 

 

Seriously I watched it again as well and didn't hear anything bad at all Kids are hearing curse worse everywhere. Calm down. Lol

No.  The recent trailer wasn't as bad.  I actually thought it was pretty interesting, especially the Jade reveal.  I was actually thinking of the reveal trailer from last year:

 

https://www.youtube....h?v=C9VPnI34dPw

 

It really bugged me last year, but it wasn't until I saw the recent trailer and the "jack shit" comment that it made me think of this whole thing again.  

 

And in regards to violence vs cursing, as I mentioned, there's a limit.  A couple of "hells" and "damns" or even a "shit" thrown into a game is one thing, but the trailer was laden with needless cursing.  My kids are fine with Assassin's Creed level of violence (not a lot of gore, more just stabby stabby type stuff) but I couldn't let them watch me play MK X.  

 

Also, this isn't me saying that all games need filters or to be toned down.  Just sometimes this stuff feels tacked on in order to make a title seem more mature.  GTA?  Fine the way it is.  BG&E?  I don't really think it needs to be that edgy.

Just Cause 3 is super fun. Def a power fantasy. Wingsuiting into a base full of commies and stealing a tank and demolishing the stronghold is awesome. I get distracted from the main quest by liberating all the towns.

There's also a $119,99 Ultimate Edition

I find it baffling that the only difference between the Gold edition and the Ultimate one is a set of outfits and stuff for the ship. Personally don't think that warrants the $30 difference.

Good job thinking of you kids and setting a standard for what is acceptable for them.  Standards are something our society is missing right now, well, except for double standards.  I believe that people who put thought into their parenting are doing our society a great service, so thank you very much.

If you don't swear in your home like we don't around our kids then it does stick out. That's why I play my M rated games on my fat Xbox one in my room after the kids go to bed. Intense violence and senseless swearing is more than I want my small children exposed to.

Plants vs Zombies GW is fine
Halo is fine

But Call of Duty, Just Cause, Fallout, some of that gets a bit more intense and I like them sleeping in there own beds without nightmares. It's harder to split reality and entertainment when your little.

I Don't have kids and I don't know what people are really arguing about, but I feel I wouldn't be defined by who I am now if not for seeing Terminator 2 and Robocop before the age 6.

 

Also anyone else find it weird no Red Dead Redemption 2 presence at E3? I Guess no reason to since they'll make bank, but still.

Rockstar usually skips E3 since it doesn't matter to their business and would be more of a hindrance to produce a demo for it. Almost all of these release dates being announced are either before its release or well after it in 2019.

There was also a point (9 years ago!) where the game came free with purchase of cheese in Canada.

I Was thinking even than, there would be a gameplay trailer or hell even show the same trailer again that we saw a month ago, but with one of the companies paying for some kinda exclusive DLC or early access.

There are two freebies in the Creation Club store for Fallout 4, for those that own it or playing it via GP:

 

Arcade Workshop Pack - Arcade machines for your settlements/homes so you don't have to play via Pip Boy.

Golden Retriever - Complete a quest to add this breed of dog so that you can turn dogmeat into a golden retriever.

It seems like Rockstar and Blizzard (aside from Activision) usually skip E3. Blizzard has Blizzcon and Rockstar knows ppl will buy GTA and RDR I think.

Also other notable no shows now that I think about it...

 

-Rocksteady's new game (Superman?)

-Borderlands 3

-Splinter Cell, though that one I don't think has had any concrete evidence it's in development.

 

And has anyone done a hands on or anything with Microsoft's possible Skate, but not really Skate game?

People with an X, what TV do you use? I hear good things, and my friend just got one and likes it, about TCL. Is that the best quality for price when it comes to 4k and HDR? Was thinking about getting one this weekend, don't know if I can wait 5 months for black friday to get it cheaper.

I have an X and a TCL P607 and love it. Definitely think the TCLs (either last year’s P series or this year’s 6 series) are the best bang for the buck. Great picture quality and low latency for gaming.

It's been 5 years since the last SC, they throw Sam (Ironside even) into some dlc that no one cares about, then don't even show anything SC related at their conference.....

 

They just keep saying "we want to return" then return to it already.....

Is that Skate game Session? It looked gorgeous at the conference, a day one for me if it looks as good as the trailer in the previews and isn't a glitchy mess.

Yeah, that's the one! I'm curious because it certainly has the look of a Skate game, but besides that I can't find more information about it besides the trailer.

 

I Think that's my only real complaint for the XBox press conference was that it was good, but outside of the games that got over 3 minutes of presentation time, I'm struggling to remember majority of what they showed and what's an exclusive or what.

Thanks. I'm looking at the 5 series. As far as I can tell the only difference between the 5 and 6 is that the 6 has a metal body instead of plastic and you can adjust color levels in different areas of the screen rather than just the screen as a whole. I'm fine with the plastic body and not sure what I'd need to adjust individual areas for so figured I'd save the $150. Plus all the best buys in my area have 5s in stock but not 6s.

I just got the 605 recently at BB.  It was on sale for $499.  I am 99% sure the body is plastic.  It has faux chrome trim around the edge.  I would probably actually prefer it just being black.  I don't have an X yet (maybe BF sales) but so far I like the TV and it is pretty easy to use.  Not a big fan of the volume controls on the side of the remote.  I hit them all the time.  Really minor issue though IMO.  

 

Mine had the 605 in stock but neither car I had was big enough so I had them deliver it.  Of coarse their truck broke down on a Saturday and I had to wait till Tuesday.

Rough with the delivery. Hopefully I can trade my car with a relative because it won't fit in my car and am too impatient to wait for a delivery. The controls seem like they would frustrate me too. I usually use the xbox media remote to control volume if I'm not using my soundbar but for some weird reason the X recognizes my TV but puts in a different remote code than what my S had and when I put in the code that was on my S I still can't control my TV with my X. Media remote controlled my TV no problem through my S, not sure what the problem is with the X.

If you can’t get a 6, I’d recommend getting a P605 (which is actually what I have, I always get mixed up because the 605 and 607 are the same except the remote).

Think there are still quite a few of those at Best Buys. Last year’s P Series is still probably going to be better than this year’s 5 series because they have local dimming. I’m also not sure the 5 series has Dolby Vision but could be wrong. I’d still say the jump between them is worth it and you may be able to find a P series for the same price.
