Crazy how the only things I'm gonna be playing from now until Cyberpunk 2020 are Halo Reach, Gears 5, and a couple of things from my backlog. Nothing else really interests me for the next 4 months or so. Really hope that new Batman Arkham game gets a release date early next year. I miss flying around Gotham beating the shit out of  criminals.

It still grinds my gears when people say a big reason they won't upgrade to an X is because they don't have a 4KTV. The TV is just the cherry on top, people. You'll see the difference in your games just from the hardware itself, even if you have a normal LED set. It's NICE to have 4K and HDR, but it's not what defines the X.

Decided to play through New Vegas for the first time after loving Outer Worlds. Other than the combat, I'm really enjoying it. Is obsidian the most underappreciated game developer in history?

Knights Of The Old Republic 2 was one of the best things to ever come from Star Wars. The story was excellent, and Kreia had the most incredible dialogue of any character in the franchise. The writing in general was so intimate and layered. It was a huge tragedy that the game shipped 75% completed. The original intended ending would have made the damn game even better than Empire Strikes Back.

Canceled my preorder after watching gameplay of the first few hours of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order it looks like it does absolutely nothing new and the dialogue and story is pretty shitty .

It's all been done to death already. I wish they would make a hardcore R rated Star Wars game with gratuitous violence and gore and cursing. Shake the franchise up. Do something unexpected. Leave the kiddos behind.

Or just give me a completely remade KOTOR 1 and 2 (Director's Cut with all the missing content) so I can relive the days when Star Wars games were engrossing experiences.

are the reliable? never heard of this website before


I haven't used them since 2012ish, around the time I kicked my Blu Ray collecting habit and picked up a gaming habit instead. But yeah, they were definitely reliable.

So exactly how bad is the new Contra supposed to be?  I'm debating preordering it and getting the $10 egiftcard (comes out to $31.99 plus the additional gift card), but if it is terrible I will probably wait until it hits $10 or so.


Giving you a like for the Actraiser avi. The game is still beautiul to this day.

You're the only person I've read that is enjoying the open world part of Gears 5. I no longer feel so alone. I loved that area.
Critics are killing the game over that open world part. Critics: games need to try new things. Same critics: your game sucks cause you tried a new thing.

They're stupid. Act 2 has the most beautiful music I've heard in a game in a long time. The scenery is incredible. And doing side missions makes the campaign action beats feel way less predictable. There's no going back after this. Every Gears game from now on must have an explorable world.

Here's how Destiny 2 breaks down.


There is the base game. "Vanilla" Destiny 2. Does not include the Forsaken expansion or any of the additional Annual Pass content.


There is Destiny 2: Forsaken, which obv includes the base game and the Forsaken expansion. Annual Pass content not included.


You can purchase the Annual Pass to go with D2:Forsaken, which will grant you access to 3 "seasons" worth of content. Season Of The Drifter, Season Of Opulence, and the Black Armory. But now you shouldn't buy it, because it was just announced it'll be part of the F2P package on the 17th.


Finally, we have the Shadowkeep expansion. If you own everything above, you can just buy this separately. This won't be part of the F2P package.

anyone getting Torchlight 2?


I will, but with Gears coming soon, I can't even tell you when I'll actually get around to it. But for $20, I'll pick it up on day one and chip away at it after I've binged on Gears enough to make room for another game.

I'm looking for someone to lead me through Crown of Sorrows so I could do the whole raid. I've only done the final encounter and would like to do the whole thing. Would he be willing to help with that raid?


I'm sure he would. He's always looking for new people to take through a raid. I'll hit him up and let you know.

Yeah, I’m not the comp type usually, but I had some fun in IB this past week, and miraculously completed the PvP parts of the quests for Thorn, Malfeasance, and Ace of Spades (can you tell it’s been a while since I did PvP?). I ignored the Solstice armor because I hadn’t been having much fun in Gambit lately (and also hadn’t played PvP much so ignored that part), but I’m loving the Black Armory stuff big time. The forges are a ton of fun and the quests are very cool and give you something quick to run in and do even if you feel like playing solo. Haven’t done any raids past the vanilla one but I hear good things about Last Wish. One of these days.

If you want to go through The Last Wish raid, or any raid, hit up my boy Tekmote. He literally sherpas people through raids all day everyday. He's like one of the top raiders in the console world, no exaggeration. His crew is super professional and very chill. Tell him The SCHWARTZ referred you. Guarantee they'll get you through it in less than an hour.

On a more on-topic note, I’m really hoping for some XBL credit from MS Rewards soon. Been stashing my points lately and I’ve been really getting back into Destiny 2 and I’m actually kind of excited for the new expansion, so if I can get it for low/no OOP cost, that’d be even better.

I know exactly what you mean. I stopped playing D2 after hitting 700 and finishing the Scourge Of The Past raid. My boy asked me to help out with some Gambit Prime a week ago and I said sure, why not. After a few matches, I caught the bug again. Now I have a fully masterworked Solstice armor set and Im working on getting the Outbreak Perfected catalyst. I really really want Recluse but I'm not built for Comp.

I popped 3 more achievements in GoW Ultimate and it still hasn't given me the point. It's not really the point I'm after so much as entering the giveaway. 


Btw, so I started to play GoW Ultimate and I'm on Chapter 2 and I'm not liking it. I'm playing it on easy and it doesn't seem easy at all. The movement of the character just throws me off since it doesn't seem as smooth as other games. 


Playing on Easy and you're still having a hard time? Yikes. The enemies literally stand there waiting to die. Are you running into their faces firing a Lancer or something? Use cover, aim, shoot until dead. You can't play it like it's Doom or Halo. It's a bit more strategic and slower paced than those style shooters.

You take that back! Bing Rewards is life


It's a part of my daily routine now. Wake up, take a shit, do my mobile Bing searches on the toilet while doing so, shower up, get dressed, do my laptop searches before I head out. EZ.
