Anyone getting Midway Arcade Origins for $5?  Definitely tempted for some nostalgia.

It's a no brainer at $5 in my opinion.  A decent collection of classic arcade games with some fairly easy achievements if you enjoy playing these kind of games. I play it every now and then for some nostalgia.

Yeah it's a really good package for the price and it being BC doesn't hurt either. Worth the price alone for Smash TV and Marble Madness.

I watched the movie The Gentlemen (Matthew McConaughey). Highly recommended. Also, unless you can understand all that British speaking, I highly recommend subtitles.


I always watch my movies with subtitles incase I miss any words.

Same, I always have subtitles on as an accompaniment. When Parasite won and got so much attention, I was shocked to be reminded how many people have such negative attitudes about "I'm watching a movie, not reading a book" etc etc.

For anyone doing the MHW SOS reward quest, I got mine really quick.

I just went to the quest board and searched for an existing SOS quest, I made sure to pick groups that already had 3 people in them. Both times the quest was over in a few minutes (before I could even get to the destination). 

 

Not sure if part of the requirement is to have 4 people, but either way, more people usually means they are further along and it'll be over sooner.

I always do subtitles on games. My son can be distracting/loud sometimes and I need to read what the characters are saying sometimes or I miss the dialogue.

Ya, I really liked The Gentleman. I need to watch it again to be sure, but it's definitely up there with Lock Stock, Snatch, and RocknRolla. Guy Richie should just stick to gangster movies.

I like subtitles in games because I can read faster then they speak the lines. I watch a lot of anime and foreign films, but I find subtitles on English speaking video distracting.

I like subtitles in games because I miss so much dialogue and sometimes listening to the line read can be super tedious instead of just reading it and moving on.  

 

I keep close captions on for movies and tv shows but honestly i kinda hate that I feel the need to do that since I feel I spend too much time reading and not enough time spent watching the movie.

Not really sure how people who speak English have a problem with understanding British, especially in that film. It's not Cockney rhyming dialect or mumbling. Basically just Hugh Grant.

 

That's about the same as people who make fun of foreign tech support and telemarketers, in my opinion. "I couldn't understand them!" Did you try paying attention?

And now I have my next movie recommendation. :)

There were a combination of factors:

  • I was VERY tired, painfully so.
  • The room we were watching in was so big and tall that the sound just disappears into the stratosphere and the TV's speakers can't handle that.
  • I was in a more social setting than a movie watching setting and my buddy next to me was giggling every time they used their British slang terms.  To the point where he was missing plot points.
  • I'm getting older and my hearing is not great.  I swear that will be the reason that I'm found pummeled to death in my kitchen.

I'm definitely going to buy it and re-watch it on my terms so I can get the full experience from it.  Other clearly British recommendations that I need to re-watch:

  • Afterlife with Ricky Gervais (Netflix)
  • Good Omens (Amazon Prime Video)

Rakuten.com/shop has Xbox $50 code for $45 with LOAD5 coupon.  Had 1000 Rakuten points in my account for my birthday, so not a bad deal.

I use it when the movie or show is a period piece where older dialects are used. Just because it’s the “same” language, dialects and vernacular can at times sound unintelligible. As a kid, I remember hearing someone with a Boston accent and could hardly understand them. I’m sure people that hear Southern accents have problems but I understand it fine. It’s about what you’re used to.

With games, I always use subtitles so I don’t miss any of the dialogue.

I use subtitles for games because I play with volume set to zero. You know how some games have awesome music and such? Well, I dont.

As for movies/shows, sometimes is too quick and I tend to rely on the text to help me, especially when different dialects are involved; but these days, my kid loves to read the text so I leave it on (when it's a kid appropriate show/movie, that is).

I can't imagine this. I need the volume near max to get enjoyment, especially anything with a shooting aspect. If i can't hear i'm not even bothering. Daddy likes the big booms!

I didn’t take anything, but very nice of you!

I like volume up. Sometimes I play with headphones if my kids are sleeping. They sleep on a different floor then I play on though so it doesn’t get to loud upstairs.

I don’t think I’ve ever watched a movie with subtitles. I don’t watch that many movies though, a lot of times if my kids are sleeping and I’m watching a movie, all I can think about is how I’d rather be playing a game.

Same here!  I would say about 90% of my gaming is done completely turned down or near it.  The xbox is about the only place i have the volume turned up but i rarely get to play it since its hooked up to the living room tv.

I hate having subs turned on watching movies or tv shows. I find it too distracting from whats going on screen. For games though, I can't play if I don't have them on. I find it easier to quick read the subs while playing then try to hear the voices over the music and sound effects. 

 

Back to RE3 talk, I beat the easy mode using a guide to make sure I didn't miss any collectibles and grind the total kills for each weapons as well. When I completed I had just over 116,000 pts to spend. I was able to pick up most of the unlocks, made sure the rocket launcher was picked up. Going to speed run the hard setting now.

The Contra and Castlevania Collections are $8 each. Easy to recommend if you have any nostalgia for either series.

 

Bulletstorm is less than that right now too.
