GameStop:

 

Most deals seem to not be online anymore.

Though, you might want to check and see if your local GameStop has it.

CoD Ghosts is available somewhat locally but I can't be bothered to drive 9 miles for it.

 

In other news:

Those who missed Bloody Boobs night missed a game that will go into Bro History with King Arthur's Gold and Masked Shooters 2.  No one expected it to be good, of course, but it was bad in really unexpected and innovative ways:

 

-- The controls are listed on a splash screen when you start the game and can't be referenced again

-- It is nearly impossible to see anything without messing with the settings.  Every round you need to turn off the filters, etc again.  Your choices are either a grainy, incomprehensible mess or else bright mall lighting.

-- Sometimes you enter a game and just can't move

-- The bad guy, Gazool (or Gazoul; the devs spell it both ways), steers like an ocean liner.  Or like a large airplane.  He literally banks in large comical arcs when trying to turn

-- The "procedurally generated maps" generate, in fact, one map.

-- The server function was a hot mess in ways not worth explaining

 

Then you had technical issues like needing to force Vsync in your GPU settings to avoid crashing and a hole in the map I fell through.  Some people left almost immediately in disgust.  Some stayed and enjoyed the train wreck.  Some just listened on Discord.  It was perhaps a record attendance for a Bro Night, probably because they didn't want Bah to stick them with the MysterD Rocket League Seal of Shame.  We will almost certainly never play it again.

I look forward to at least one of you who bought Bloody Boobs giving a detailed, thoughtful review of the game.

Having played multiple racing games with Fox, anything that keeps him off the roads is a benefit to all of humanity.

(here'sthe article the Kotaku post was based on).

"Unwinnable" is right.  Make a conscious effort to avoid racist stereotypes from early animation and instead get bitched at for "ignoring" and "whitewashing" the racist aspects of early animation.  It's a video game, not a treatise on early 20th century racial depictions in art.

I don't know who that is. Looks like some final fantasy thing. Whoever is more excited about that than ninja turtles is lame.

It played fine, it just wasn't any fun (aside from playing with bros and mocking it).  I remember the weapons all felt really lame and all the enemies were bullet sponges so you never had an awesome "Tear this shit up" moment, just tediously grinding down enemies.  And 50% of the bad guys were generic W-Y mooks instead of fighting, you know, aliens.

 

Also, I remember that all the 'special' weapons were terrible.  You'd locate Vasquez's pistol from her final holdout in the ducts and it was objectively worse than the pistol you got stock.  Yaaaaayyyy....

I'm not sensitive at all.  It's funny how I've played Heathstone against other people in this thread, have lost, and not had any issues.  The guy just made a semi-dickish comment and then 'slow-rolled' at the end (this is generally frowned upon unless you're intentionally trolling people).  Although this behavior isn't surprising in light of his continued comments in the thread.

What was the semi-dickish comment?  Did he call you Nooby?  Has anyone called you Nooby?  That's what I would call you if I was trying to make fun of you.

I love the 502, but the cable braiding is trash.  I'm on my 4th or 5th 500 series mouse, all but one have had the same problem:  Eventually, the braiding frays and has a very good chance of pinching the USB cable to the point of breakage.  

 

Here's a pic of my current 502 Spectrum cable.

Average life expectancy is 18 to 36 months based on my abusage, so I always buy Best Buy's Indef Proof $20 warranty and swap it out for a new one every two years.  I like the mouse enough to put up with the exchange hassle.

ASF is sweet once you go through the setup.  Shutsdown when you launch a game in steam and then auto starts as soon as steam is idle.  Set it and let it run for the weeks it needs to run.  I set it up on this shitty little win10 tablet I had laying around, so I dont even have to leave my comp running to get my idling done.

That explains why sometimes you seem to be playing odd games (not talking about Crossout), there's an option to appear offline when idling, its:

	"FarmOffline": false

In your account config ie: weiler.json.

Yes it is. If Breath of the Wild was sold here briefly for $10 and I said $15 was a steal, that would be no less true, especially if no one else was offering for $10 any longer. The game could easily be deemed a good buy at a much higher price, because of the quality of the content was all I meant by that. I got it at launch and have no regrets. If you can find a cheaper copy then yeah, take it! But if you can't, and you're still looking for a copy, here it is.

The fact that it was available in a bundle for $12 along with many other games along with others here selling it for much, much cheaper is just kind of a dick move. Everyone is free to make their own prices and buy at whatever price they feel comfortable with, but yeah, setting your price so high and then marketing it as a "steal" is sure to rub people the wrong way. You do you though.
