The only time I put someone on my ignore list is when they regularly post racist, sexist, or homophobic nonsense. Every once in a while I'll click to view one of their posts and sure enough racist, sexist, or homophobic nonsense completely non-game related.

I tried giving it a shot for a potentially interesting story but the combat killed it for me. I wanted to like it but could tell a couple hours in I wasn’t enjoying the gameplay or story enough to continue. Try it out though.
I would love another Vampire Masquerade game.

There is Bloodlines II on the way, but there's already another Masquerade game in the vein of a visual novel. It's supposedly coming to consoles too, but it's not expensive on PC.

In short, who the Fuck knows!

I wouldn't be surprised if MS was originally targeting Thanksgiving but now they are afraid of missing it because of COVID-19 impact on manufacturing.  But they will fight like hell to get it out before Christmas (for obvious reasons), so they are still saying holiday 2020.

Bloodlines was epic despite all the bugs. I think only it and KOTOR 2’s technical problems brushed aside for how great they were. Doesn’t hurt there was a big modding community behind both of them.

Almost done with the main game in Ori. Overall this game is a lot easier than the first one, which may be a function of experience from playing the original, as well as the developers fine-tuning their design. I've only had to re-do one of the 'giant-boss-creatures-chases-you' sequences more than twice, for example. That is, until the final area, which is just full of death traps. Combat is definitely more intentional and better as a result.

 

On track to finish in time for Doom Eternal. The real challenge, then, will be working from home all day Friday knowing that Doom Eternal is ready to go.

It's why I took a vacation day tomorrow for Animal Crossing.  Will still probably get bothered for things ...

That handles the turns better than I do in Forza.  Though it was nice to see it would've been nailed for a dirty lap at multiple points.

I dont see no UPS box beating amazon to the corner; FedEx is probably a distant 3rd so the corners are there for the taking.

Remember you cant make more than one elusive move in F1 & if you have the inside, you are pretty much guaranteed to retain you position. It's only dirty if you are reckless.

Pre ordered Resident Evil 3 instead of Doom Eternal since I just played through the first Crysis and currently working through Far Cry 5 did I make the right decision haha

I Don't know what it says about the state of the world right now that I feel legitimately happy for people who are excited to play Doom and Animal Crossing tomorrow.

 

Also goddamn I am getting paranoid every time I feel a possible need to cough now.

My son is convinced an elite controller will make him better in Fortnite and his birthday is coming up. I've always had zero interest in them so I have no clue what the differences are between the two. Doesn't look like there are any good deals on either after some basic searching so does anyone have any opinions on them? Is it worth it? I feel like I only remember people talking about having issues with them lol

A lot of people like them. I tried the V2 and it hurt my hands to hold, I think mainly the added weight and paddles on the back. I tried to like it but ended up selling it on eBay.

Really want Doom 64. Wish it was available on its own because I haven’t even finished Doom 2016 so don’t want Eternal quite yet.

I Got the V1 like a few years back and honestly just went back to my normal controller I've had since launch. It's nice and you can feel the heft and weight more compared to a normal controller, but in all honesty I'm not a fan of the paddles since I feel I more accidentally press them than actually use them. That and when I take them off I really don't know why I'm using it over my normal controller so I just went back to my normal one and haven't really used the Elite in about a year. It's nice if you have a demand for more buttons for some reason, but in all reality I don't. Also of note I mostly just play single player games.

Still love my V1 elite, when it dies I'll get the V2. Never had the issues and I use 2 of the back paddles all the time and I just have them set for the L3 and R3 buttons from clicking in the analog sticks. I'd go through controllers all the time just from something like EA Sports NHL where you're pressing in L3 almost all the time which would end up with stick drift fairly quickly.

I only use the paddles for certain games, beyond that I take them off. The dpad disc I love.
The weight though.... wish the normal controllers were that heavy.

The V2 is nice since it has a built in rechargeable battery. All of the V2's will share in the same benefits of the recent standard controllers, like using a headset without an adapter, bluetooth support. But I haven't checked to see if there were any mechanical improvements.

 

On the other hand, if he wants to get better at Fortnite, I'm told you can't really beat a keyboard and mouse. Which the XBOX One and Fortnite is compatible with. There is a pricey official Razer Turret. Which is wireless and has a slick slide out from the side of the keyboard mouse pad. Otherwise the X1 will work with any USB keyboard / mouse.

 

Kids adapt to things pretty quickly, I'm sure he will get the hang of an elite controller or keyboard with mouse. And either of those will for sure help his game, especially a keyboard and mouse (although steeper learning curve, if he isn't already used to playing games on that)

I'm right there with you on the paranoia we just had our first case in Erie county yesterday and it turns out the person who is the first case works at a local car dealer that sends paper work directly to one of our employees wife's at a different location so she only had contact by the paper work but there's a chance she could get it from that albeit probably slim. But then our employee had contact with her since shes his wife then us its pretty scary how quickly you come in contact with people. My paranoia is coming in right now since this afternoon my throat started being a little scratchy/sore.

 

I’m gonna do the same. Not into Doom at all.

Thanks for the elite feedback guys.

As for Doom, I never finished 2016 either but am falling victim to the hype. I know some of you don't believe in reviews but this is a good watch and has me on the verge of pre-ordering.
