  1. If I thought that I'd have stopped playing videogames long ago.
  2. I'm not a series loyalist. I don't care what series or brand a racing game belongs in as long as it's great. My favorite racing game is Test Drive Unlimited, but I didn't like the sequel as much, its physics was a bit dumbed down, and hasn't improved on the original in any way. Need For Speed used to be my favorite series, but that ended after the fifth game, Porsche Unleashed. I also enjoyed Gran Turismo up to the 6th game, but I think Sport was an insult to traditional GT fans, and GT7 is a terrible game with an identity crisis. A wannabe sim that fails at being both a sim and an arcade game. So I can't say I unconditionally like any series.
  3. For some reason it redirects to the wrong link, it works if you copy the link and paste it into a new tab. But that article is way outdated now. There is a newer one: http://madblog.shacknet.us/gt7-update/
  4. I usually do it balanced, do one main quest mission then do a few sidequests. I usually tie up everything else before finishing the main quest, I don't really get people who focus on just one or the other, doing every side mission before even starting the main quest. Or only doing the main quest line while ignoring everything else.
  5. You mean like Oblivion NPCs? 😄 Strangely it never really bothered me in Bethesda games, it is just comical, rather than detrimental. I mean their whole games has a certain clunkiness to them, if the vocie acting was any better it would feel out of place 🙂 I'd rather say that good voice acting adds to games, but if everything else is fine with the game, the voice acting won't dissuade me from playing it. Where I do have a problem with it is when the main character's male and female voices are wildly different quality. For me this was in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, I first played the game as Kassandra, and the voice actor really nailed the character. I tried starting a new game with Alexiios and it just wasn't working. The contrast was just too big. In Cyberpunk 2077 I did not have this problem. While the female voice acting of V was absolutely brilliant, the male was also very good, so there wasn't such a big contrast.
  6. Test Drive Solar Crown Starfield Max Payne 1,2 Remake
  7. A cease and desist letter, is not suing, It is not even legal action, it's just a warning to let them know we know, and do not appreciate it.
  8. From Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex 2045
  9. I used to follow them very closely, but not recently. They went downhill, in the past few years, so they are not very interesting. Especially with many publishers just doing their own online events where they show off their upcoming titles separately. The game awards has just became like the oscars which I haven't been following since the 90s.
  10. I usually follow the narrative. If it makes sense to do something at that time, I'll do it, but if the narrative says I must hurry somewhere else I do that ignoring everything else. It's ironic that most RPGs actually punish you if you follow the narrative instead of doing every last sidequest at every location instantly.
  11. Detroit Become Human - At least if you get the "good" ending. It can also have a very depressive ending. Mass Effect Andromeda - has a quite hopeful ending. I don't think the trilogy's end is very uplifting. At least not to me. The ending of the first one might be considered uplifting.
  12. Just send a cease and desist letter, and watch them cut and run.
  13. That's actually even worse, as instead of defrauding one entity, they are stealing from all the users. You have IP rights for your own posts.
  14. No, just what first came to my mind, that hasn't been mentioned yet.
  15. GT7 a masterpiece? It's an utter and complete tone deaf disaster.
  16. I think for games to be considered masterpieces they have to excel on all fronts. I can adore the story and characters in a game, but if it lacks in other areas I would not call it a masterpiece. Also some games are very much limited by their creation date, so while they are masterpieces of their era, they might seem inadequate by modern standards. So here is a list of games that I consider masterpieces, I will not go into detail due to the sheer number, but feel free to ask me about any, I can gladly recommend any of these games. Dune II (1992) Raptor Call of the Shadows (1994) Doom II (1994) Tie Fighter (1994) Transport Tycoon Deluxe (1995) The Need For Speed (1995) Wing Commander IV (1996) Carmageddon II (1998) Half-Life (1998) X-Wing Alliance (1999) System Shock 2 (1999) Mobil 1 Rally Championship (1999) Screamer 4x4 (2000) Deus Ex (2000) Red Alert 2 (2000) Max Payne (2001) Mafia The City of Lost Heaven (2002) Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour (2003) Max Payne 2 The Fall of Max Payne (2003) Gran Turismo 4 (2004) Richard Burns Rally (2004) Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (2005) Test Drive Unlimited (2006) Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (2006) Crysis Warhead (2008) Mass Effect 2 (2010) GTA IV: Episodes From Liberty City (2010) Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011) Dragon Age II (2011) Portal 2 (2011) Alien Isolation (2014) Mad Max (2015) Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (2016) Ghost Recon Wildlands (2017) XCOM2: War of the Chosen (2017) The Last of Us II (2020) Maybe on a different day a few more games would make the cut, maybe a few wouldn't make it.
  17. This can be both a negative and a positive. Some games simply don't tie loose ends as sequel bait, others do it deliberately, while still others just fail to present a coherent epilogue. For Example Alien Isolation has no closure, and arguably you end up in a worse situation than you started from, which seems to set up a sequel that sadly never came. Beyond Two Souls, is a weird game, with lots of spirituality and the ending is completely nuts, but in a good way. From all the Quantic Dream games, this is my favorite. Mass Effect 3's ending raises more questions because it is poorly written, based on contrivances and plot points that basically mean the end of known civilization if you take it at face value.
  18. It will be a PC/PS5 port for TLOU1, and multiplayer for TLOU2, or maybe PC version for TLOU2. No way they are releasing brand new games, unless it's only an expansion like left behind.
  19. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if attacking Ukraine wasn't a false flag operation to provoke a response from NATO / West. And as soon as they have their assassination of Franz Ferdinand, Winnie the Pooh will jump in on the side of russia against the "Western aggressors"
  20. I'm all for letting people change their gender in society if that makes them feel better, but changing your gender from a societal point of view does not mean you can completely change your biological sex. And if your biological sex gives you an advantage in most physical sports over your peers, then it is not fair. And will cause women who are born female to be less inclined to enter various sports if someone else can beat them by putting in half the effort or less. I think it is very hypocritical that the same people who swear by science when discussing religion and the pandemic tries to deny science when it comes to transgenderism.
  21. An interesting article on the current situation: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2022/03/ukraine-is-winning-war-russia/627121/
  22. Generally every church believes they are the only way, maybe Buddhism doesn't make that claim, but I'm not sure. For thousands of years religion was the main cause of wars. And nationalism is akin to religion too, think on that. This maybe off topic, but being an anti globalist is essentially the same as being pro-war.
