  1. Lately my nephew has been acting a bit more “elite gamer”-y but I don’t really see him often enough to do anything about it. For now I’ll try to write it off as a 12 year old being a 12 year old, I guess.

    (Before anyone asks, his parents would have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about and I don’t think they’d care about this particular problem anyways lol)

      If his behavior in games start to seep into his other regular activities, then they can act. But for now your in the right on just staying cool with him.

      Just keep an eye on him. People around his age typically swear and say insults like its the coolest thing to do (I never done that in my teen years), it's when it gets older it becomes a problem. Sadly many people these days still act like teenagers in their 20s, 30s or even 40s.

      If it starts hurting people as in seriously offending people causing mental problems then its time to step in. Oh if their parents can't understand, just say bullying. Its easy enough to understand without explaining about games.

  2. I swear, sometimes my favorite parts of RPG's (ones that you can actually roleplay in) is just creating detailed backstories for your characters. It adds a surprising amount of depth makes me feel creative.

    1. SupahBerry


      Beg pardon, I don't play  RPGs, but what specific examples do you refer to?

    2. Speederino


      Anything where the character's backstory and personality is left more or less up to you. Think Dragon Age or Elder Scrolls or even D&D.

  3. It's weird how the TMNT keep doing these DC crossovers even though they were conceived as parodies of certain Marvel properties. Seeing them with Batman strangely works, but I wouldn't mind seeing them crossover with Daredevil or Spider-Man at some point.

  4. The Elder Scrolls VI: Skyrim-ier

      Don't give Todd ideas, he might actually do it.

  5. Doomguy for Smash

      inb4 Bethesda does Dovahkin instead.

      For his Final Smash he just whips out the BFG and vaporizes everyone.

  6. I really hope Smash has better single-player modes this time. I'm not asking for Subspace Emissary 2 or anything, I just felt Smash Wii U was really lacking in this department compared to Melee and Brawl. (Hell, I'd even argue the 3DS version had more engaging single-player stuff)

    I don't suppose the streams have revealed anything?

  7. At the risk of potentially stepping on some toes, I’m getting a little fed up with this trend I’ve been noticing online lately (Although it’s probably nothing new). It seems you aren’t allowed to be disappointed in something without being called entitled or being told you had unreasonably high expectations.

    Yes, entitled fanboys exist. Yes, unrealistic expectations can be a problem. Does that therefore mean you should always happily accept what’s given to you and never wonder about what could have been? Fuck no.

      As for what sparked this, I’m seeing quite a bit of shade thrown at people who were disappointed in Nintendo’s E3. I don’t think it’s entitled to have expected at least one other big showcase or reveal (no ill will towards Mario Party but I wouldn’t call that “major”)  on the one day of the year where you can normally expect that exact thing; doubly so for people who maybe aren’t that big on Smash.

    2. KHCast


      I was disappointed by Nintendo and I was someone interested in smash.(I say interested instead of hyped because I’m curious about its features still and wanna see what more they do to differentiate it from U before getting on the train), but even people that are hyped for smash are also agreeing I’m seeing it was a meh presentation 

    3. SupahBerry


      To this day, I still live by the thought in the back of my mind to not go in with high nor low exceptions. Expect absolutely anything and absolutely nothing at the same time.

    4. Speederino


      I'm very excited for Smash, it's just a bummer that's all they really had going for them this year. Especially when there's so many rumors swirling about new Pikmins and Star Foxes and Retro Studios, not to mention the other games that have been actually confirmed.

      It's not just this though, I could also say stuff concerning TSR (which still looks really fun btw) buuuuuuut I don't think SSMB is the best place for that particular discussion.

  8. For as bad as Sony's first half hour was, the actual conference in the theater was kind of perfect. Just gameplay footage after gameplay footage, no devs walking out in-between to talk about what we just saw, no company CEO's throwing buzzwords at us, no awkward celebrity cameos. They actually did a solid job cutting-out the traditional BS. I'm not saying I never want to see actual people on E3 stages again, but it was a nice change of pace.

  9. Because everyone definitely cares (btw I didn't watch EA or Squeenix):

    Microsoft: A. Tons of games and good reveals, well-paced with very few dull moments, if any.

    Bethesda: D+. Yeah sorry, there were some good reveals but this didn't need to be an hour and a half. There didn't need to be massive spotlights on minor game updates and I could have done with less "WE'RE BETHESDA WE ROCK YEEEAH".

    Ubisoft: B. Not a lot to say here, but it was a solid show. A few good reveals and lots of gameplay footage with some dull moments here and there. Kudos to the nice Grant Kirkhope concert.

    Sony: C-. If they had cut out that first half hour I'd rate them a lot higher for Shadows of Tsushima alone. They clearly went for quality over quantity, and that's fine. But that first 30 minutes really was terrible, Last of Us 2 aside.

    Nintendo: D. Really disappointed in them. Smash looks great but they had almost nothing else to show. They should have just gone all-in like they did with BotW and made it clear beforehand that this year would be Smash-focused.

    1. KHCast


      I honestly don’t care about who “wins”, I care about the games individually and they won my interest 

    2. Speederino


      I don't care who "wins" either, I'm just giving my thoughts on what I watched.

    3. Candescence


      They actually did make it clear this Direct would be Smash-focused, though? Someone wasn't paying attention.

    4. Speederino


      When and where? It was guaranteed to be a major part but I never once saw any indication that it would be 90% of their E3 with no other real announcements whatsoever. And going from the reactions I'm seeing on here and Twitter, I'm definitely not alone. If they DID say anything, they clearly didn't do a good job spreading the news.

  10. ...that's it? Smash looks great, but no big game announcements or updates to already announced ones, just...Smash. They should have done the same thing as they did with BotW and announced beforehand that they'd be just focusing on that.

    1. Speederino


      And yes, I know they could still announce something during Treehouse like they did last year but otherwise the show's over.

  11. Best Buy apparently updated their listings yesterday to indicate Netflix and Youtube are finally hitting Switch. If that's true, methinks that might be an announcement today given the timing.

    1. Strickerx5


      >when your console's services are so poor that suddenly netflix and youtube apps for it are a point worthy of E3

      Joking aside, I honestly have to wonder what's taken them so long on this front. Hell, the Switch doesn't even have a proper internet browser yet like wtf.

  12. It feels like Sony essentially wanted to do their own exclusive livestream with the pre-show and talking heads, but they forgot that the streamers already do that shit. It just made the format confusing and boring.

  13. Ghost of Tsushima looks god damn incredible.

  14. I’m very tempted to just stop watching, I wanna see Spider-Man though.

  15. Hi, I'm Todd Howard from Bethesda Studios. Yesterday, we announced that players will have access to nuclear missiles within the world of Fallout 76. But we had another idea. What if we gave players nuclear missiles...in real life? For a limited time, we have packed in real actual nuclear launch codes in select physical copies of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The game is available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, VR, Amazon Echo, Etch-a-Sketch, Pagers, and Refrigerators. Get buyin' and get nukin'.

    1. Sean


      Code-only with no physicals? fucking lame

    2. Patticus


      Kinda sad that Fallout began as a warning of the perils and horrors of nuclear armageddon, but since Bethesda has been making them, it's turned into "Hey, nuke your friends, that's cool!"
