  1. Past hour
  2. This shouldn't have happened in the first place. And I'm almost certain this wouldn't have happened if it wasn't caught on Camera.
  3. Bump for two things: first, the game is getting a PC release as well on Steam (though being attached to SEGA it has Denuvo, so wait until it's gone and/or for a sale), and we know the version at launch for the west has the quality of life improvements given as patches to the japanese version (like the skill select option). More importantly, we know part of the english voice cast with people like Jameson Pierce and Ray Chase, but if the trailers are anything to go by, Dante is voiced again by Reuben Langdon. It feels so weird hearing that voice with the DMC2 costume. Wonder if the battle grunts have been redubbed as well to be less jarring in contrast.
  4. Now comes the years of hearing how because Chauvin was convicted, that proves the system works and all the bad cops are gone.
  5. Chauvin has been declared guilty.

    Good.

      My mom sent me a text informing me of it.

      That's really good. 

      I've been a lot more frightened of the police nowadays, for obvious reasons. I hope I don't end up becoming a statistic because of some unfortunate hand of fate. 

  6. The irony of Chauvin being convicted on Hitler's birthday is delicious and hilarious. XD

  7. Is it really confusing that a character can be likeable and a jerk?

    This isn't just for people who don't understand why others like the character, but also for people who act like the character is a "good person" despite evidence to the contrary.

  8. Today
  9. Been so tired lately.

      Join the Insomnia Club dude. Stayed up all last night, and as such ended up napping through most of the time my niece was visiting (Don't worry, she'll be back tomorrow)

  11. Crossplay is something the community has been pushing for even earlier than the other stuff we've talked about and I'm surprised it hasn't happened already. Even just enabling cross console would alleviate issues with player counts by a lot. In addition to all this, I just can't see Overwatch continuing to be competitive with a 60 dollar price point at this juncture. If I want to just boot up a shooter with my friends there are too many free options to choose from. A lot of OW content creators I play moved to either Valorant or Apex instead, and it's because both games are super active. New content is more frequent and the developers put a lot more care into balancing to make sure nothing is game breaking. It costs nothing to try for yourself, meaning player counts are always high. Halo Infinite's completely free Multiplayer is going to beat OW2 to the market too, making things dicier. A huge barrier of entry for Overwatch 2 when a lot people don't trust the brand anymore is only going to cause problems.
  12. I finished the Balan Wonderworld novel.

    It's passable.

    The ideas are fun, and at least it's conveying the ideas the game wanted to get out better than the game itself.

    The problem is since its a novel adapting a platformer, where each world is more or less the same... it's VERY repetitive in structure. Save a person, learn their backstory, repeat 12 times.

    Balan continues to be underused, the only depth to his character arriving at the end.

    This formula could really serve for a fun TV show than a novel, being able to take in the ideas storywise with Oshima's gorgeous style. But chances are, that won't happen.

    So we're stuck with two fragments of what could've been a good whole.

      Hmmm. I have been wondering if it's worth buying the novel.

    2. Failinhearts

      Like. It's 8 bucks, if you're in for a decent read, you could go for a lot worse. A lot of the fun comes from seeing what the game omits and the messages it was trying to tell, it even explains why the hell the NPCs vanish when you get to close to it.

      That alone is worth the price of admission, just the ability to ask yourself why this was cut.

  13. My latest pixel art:

  14. Chauvin was just convicted on all three counts he was charged with. 2nd degree murder, 3rd degree murder and manslaughter.
  15. Chauvin guilty on all three counts.

      Good.

      Though the fact that things were so unsure up to 30 minutes ago is still disgusting.

  16. It depends on how they do it IMO. If it's just like a Team Fortress 2 F2P situation where the whole game is available with no problems, I think that would be great, especially since it would make Overwatch infinitely more accessible for things like Game Nights and such. But I don't want them to start fundamentally pulling shit like other games of this sort where they lock off the heroes and demand you to unlock them. I think Heroes of the Storm had such a system, and in a game like Overwatch where it's so heavily reliant on hero flexibility and countering other choices. If you were locked to certain heroes, it'd IMO - be a total nightmare, especially if balance changes ended up screwing with someone you did have, and you learnt. I do feel like Overwatch is eventually going to have to go Free to Play at this rate. Even OW1's client as I said could do with some kind of fresh coat of paint. As much as I know they're putting all developmental efforts towards OW2, I'd still like them to take some time both porting the engine over to PS5/Series X (even if it's either OW1 or OW2's engine, but as we know - OW1's client will be merged into OW2, so getting it onto next-gen consoles would both be good future-proofing, and a good way to freshen things up). On top of Free to Play, the biggest thing IMO would be cross-play. COD's been implementing it for awhile, and it's done a fairly decent job by letting the player decide if they want all-around cross-play (IE - playing with console and PC players), or if they want it to be solely console-based (PS5/Series X, etc). That would certainly help bolster the playbase too.
  17. I agree with this, but part of this ties into the low population stuff I talked about earlier. There's not really a good fix for it until the game gets an influx of new players somehow. There's rumors of the game going free to play. There's been understandable pushback on that from the community but honestly it might be the only way to secure a consistent playerbase going forward.
  18. I frankly want better game balancing. Ever since they got rid of the skill level requirements, match-making has been a complete and total shitshow in every aspect. As a gold border player with so many hours on the game, I absolutely should not be getting matched with people who are under level 50. Not to mention that team balancing is often quite often than not - a complete shambles. I've had tons upon tons of matches where there were silver to platinum border players all all matched into the enemy team, while my team has all bronze border players. They decided to get rid of the skill-based matchmaking to get faster queue times, but idk man. When the matches have degraded so utterly horrendously in quality as a result, it's not particularly good.
  19. I'm still going to play the game, though primarily for multiplayer as single player GAAS just isn't my thing. For all the rightful shit the game gets, the balance changes over the last year or so have actually left me feeling pretty satisfied, bar a few outliers like Baptise's lamp. That, and the last event actually being fun enough for me to bother playing it more than once is pairing well with the stuff they showed off at blizzcon to make me optimistic that they'll finally hit the ground running with a solid, balanced shooter come launch. The PvP stuff is kind of just a bonus for me, but at least it seems substantial. I...haven't minded the lack of new heroes/maps as much as I thought I would either. It was hard to get excited for them because they were of extremely mixed quality and always threw the game balance out of wack. Some of the new additions legitimately ruined the game for months at a time IMO, and that's not an issue to take lightly. Taking some time to focus on refinement has been good for the game and I'm hoping to hear they've rethought their approach to designing Heroes/Maps in the interim. Basically, I'm willing to wait, but I'm an outlier. I still think they should reconsider their plan and release something between now and Overwatch 2. The population numbers have dwindled pretty harshly, at least on my end, and what's a multiplayer game without a base? I don't think Overwatch 1 continuing to stay quiet is actually going to hurt Overwatch 2's launch any(I think it'll actually go over a lot better if the gaming public just kind of forgets about Overwatch 1 so they can be pleasantly surprised whenever they return), but the game would be more fun in the meantime if they did something to keep players sticking around. The main thing stopping me from turning it on much nowadays is the queue times, and that's due to an inactive playerbase.

  21. I'm still probably going to play OW2 because I'm a sucker for PvE, and that's primarily what I want from the game. That said, the way they decided to handle things has been horrendous. I played a lot of Overwatch and must have at least 1000 hours put into it from launch, and I've been playing it less and less, only really hopping on for events (primarily the challenge event skins). The game's just been lacking in content, and it's harmed it as a result, especially since they refuse to add anything more to OW1, due to saving it for OW2. I feel like they should've been planning some meaningful changes to happen, and that still needs to happen with OW2 receiving a delay. If it's going to take upwards of a year, if not even longer to get OW2 onto PS4, Xbox One, PC, and so on, then get a PS5 and Xbox Series X port into development for OW1, give us some haptics, some adaptive trigger support, etc. Series X and Series S recently got a update for 4K/60fps or 120fps/1440p, and yet PS5 is still rocking the same blurry 1080p graphics at 60fps. Put out Sojurn already, we know she's finished. God, even this year's Archive event only had three new challenge modes compared to last year's six. There's been zero meaningful content added to Overwatch in forever. Even this year's Archives skins aren't even the usual lore-based ones we get that gives us something relating to the characters, they're just crappy historical skins that could've just been thrown into an Anniversary event. I don't really think it's hard to argue that Overwatch 1 has just continually been getting worse and worse since they decided to focus on OW2. The only major changes it gets anymore is balance changes. With no new heroes or maps, almost no new content for events, and no gameplay improvements to issues that's plagued the game for awhile, it's just become a tedious mess to play. The most interesting thing they've done in ages was the April Fools event where they put out a ton of ridiculous and broken changes, like making Mei a tank, letting Sigma and Zenyatta fly, and such.
  22. I don't think I'll ever get tired of the fanon image of Shadow being overly invested in Cream like a doting big brother. xD

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      There's a specific image of Shadow teaching Cream how to use a gun that I love but the artist seems to have deleted their account and I didn't think to save it.

    2. Cuz

      Cuz

      That's one of the 3 exact images that come to mind when I think about this trope! xD I could probably find it somewhere if I tried. 

      Shadow Teaches Cream how to use a Gun : SonicTheHedgehog

      The others are that one cover of Sonic Universe with Cream on his bike, and someone just did a little strip.

      Cream: "I got into a fight."

      *Shadow barrels thru shoving Vanilla and Rouge aside*

      "Did you win or lose?!"

      Love it. xD

      Yes, that's the one. Thank you!

      Makes me think of that Doom Slayer/Isabelle dynamic

  23. Jeff seems like a cool guy on the development side, assuming he's as nice as he comes across, I wish him well on whatever he does next. I'm still mixed on whether I'll bother to play OW2 considering I haven't played OW1 for months now (I used to really enjoy it to the point it was wasting too much of my time tbh, it's a very moreish game I admit) and the whole... Activision Blizzard frequently being a garbage company thing. With that in mind, the biggest loss here will be the lack of cosy Christmas Eve Yule Log stream.

      Uuuugh. Not a fan of that Disney villain twist.

  25. It seems the Brazilian voice actor of Amy Rose on Sonic Boom has passed. Among other of her works seems to be Toph from Avatar, Ahsoka from Star Wars, Sam from iCarly and Peppa Pig.

      Aww...46 is so low to go out at.

  26. It could also be a situation where Sonic ran after someone. Maddie and Tom are running from inside the coffee shop. I wouldn't be surprised if Agent Stone (remember he makes good lattes) ended up working there or something. That is just me speculating though without any further evidence. But yeah, there could be another situation where Sonic chases after a bad guy or something after something happens in the coffee shop or he could be kidnapped.
