Tai’s probably too young to be interested in watching Terrace House on Netflix, but maybe in a few years it would be a good Japanese language show for him to get into.

Bungie said at E3 that Destiny 2 will be 30 fps on all consoles.


If you want 60 fps get it on PC.

I believe they meant they want something new in Mario Kart.  They weren't directly comparing Forza and Mario Kart I don't think, just saying if they added a free roam mode like Forza that would be welcome.

Cheapy directly compared them on twitter.

He just can't accept that reviewers like the content in MK8 more than he does, and more than the content in FH3.

I recommend killing all the regular enemies you can in your first playthru of Dishonored 2. It makes exploring the areas and finding runes & bonecharms much less frustrating, especially if you buy the ability that turns dead enemies to ash.

I had to pause ny jog to laugh when Cheapy claimed the Xbone S compared favorably on price with the PS4 Pro and Shipwreck said the Scorpio is is much more powerful than it. That is some crazy spin based on the actual facts.

A 1 TB Xbone S is $350, and 1.4 teraflops.

The 1 TB PS4 Pro will be $400, but is 4.2 teraflops.

The Scorpio is supposed to be 6 teraflops, which isn't nearly as big a jump in power as the jump from the Xbone S to the PS4 Pro. But somehow Cheapy thinks MS could charge a $100 or even $200 premium.

Wait, what in hell is Shipwreck doing criticizing Wombat's movie viewing habits? Any asshole who willingly spent money on Pixels officially forfeits the right to ever call out another person's movie tastes.


It was pretty funny hearing Shipwreck claim there was any worth in that flaming pile of shit.

I enjoyed the in depth discussion of Wombat's sausage stuffing.

And the part we he talked about his Thanksgiving recipe was good, too.

Rise of the TR was already being made when MS bought temporary exclusivity.

There is one type of game Shipwreck liked that isn't made anymore because there aren't enough other people who like it.

Yeah, I don't get it, either. I'm guessing people are referring to how the Shenmue Kickstarter didn't sit well with all of you. I'm noticing a lot of people in general are confused in how kickstarter works. The Castlevania successor, "Bloodstained", raised a few million on Kickstarter, but that's not the only revenue the game is receiving. So when I heard Shenmue was doing the same, I wasn't surprised or upset by the news. 

Nobody should be upset by it.  Shenmue fans are going to get to see the next part of the story, which is what they've wanted for more than a decade.  People who aren't Shenmue fans (like me) aren't affected.  There's nothing on Kickstarter which says only the money received there is allowed to be used for the production of a game.


What Sony are doing with Shenmue 3 is not much different to when Paradox came on as publisher for Pillars of Eternity, another game which made about $4m on KS.






Obsidian Entertainment, the developer of Fallout: New Vegas and South Park: The Stick of Truth, today announced that they are entering into a partnership with Paradox Interactive to launch their upcoming role-playing game (RPG), Pillars of Eternity.


Pillars of Eternity, an RPG inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment, was funded via Kickstarter in late 2012, raising $4.5 million through both backer pledges on Kickstarter and Obsidian’s own website. Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, stated that every dollar raised through the crowdfunding campaign will be spent solely on the game’s development.


“This game would not have happened if not for the passion and generosity of our backers, and their faith in us to create the game they wanted,” said Urquhart. “How we are developing Pillars of Eternity has not, and will not be, changed; we will deliver the game we promised to our backers, and we will deliver it this year. Having Paradox as a partner, with their expertise in independent games like Pillars of Eternity, lets us put all of our focus on making an incredible game.”


Paradox will assume key marketing and distribution responsibilities for the title, which will support Obsidian by allowing them to concentrate entirely on development.

Mario Party seems like a soul-destroyingly bad game on the Giant Bomb 50 turn videos.

Wombat was right about DeNA. After 400 episodes it's still amusing when Cheapy automatically assumes Wombat is wrong about something, when in fact he's correct and it's Cheapy who is wrong. Especially when it's something to do with Japan.

DeNA Co., Ltd. (株式会社ディー・エヌ・エー Kabushikigaisha Dī-Enu-Ē?) (pronounced "DNA") is a provider of mobile portal and e-commerce websites based in Japan.

I started watching Agent Carter because of Wombat, and it was great.  Thanks, Wombat.
