How exactly would Steve be terrible? He could make for a really quirky and interesting fighter. They figured out a move set for pac man and he’s one of the most interesting characters to watch and play, so I’m sure they could figure out a cool moveset for him.

The Hero was leaked some time ago iirc, but things were a lot less clear about banjo. There's two dlc fighters left, and I'm really pulling for Steve (Minecraft) and/or Master Chief.

Other than that though, the reveal was fantastic.

I don't mean this negatively, but I'd put Sans closer to niche/meme territory than actual icon with a chance to get in.

Absolutely. It's very fun. The progression system is fair and rewarding, customization is excellent, and the mechanics/flow of combat are very polished and balanced, especially compared to Chivalry (from what I've heard at least).

  1. Yes.
  2. It varies wildly. Just wrapped up my first year of college and I'm now working part time, so it depends on my schedule for any given week as well as plans I make with friends. Generally though, if I have no work to do and no plans, I'm going straight for the keyboard or controller.
  3. I used to be more into military shooters like CoD and BF, but since around spring of 2016 I've shifted to RPGs (more single player games in general, actually) and fighters. I've played Minecraft since 2012, and have recently started playing it a lot again. I can never stay away from the game for too long, I adore it too much. I also play a lot of Smash Ultimate.
  4. Any big FromSoft titles. Souls trilogy, Bloodborne, and Sekiro. Recently I've picked up an indie game called Mordhau, and I really like it. It's like Chivalry but better in basically every conceivable way, and has given me a very good reason to finally delete For Honor.
  5. I can't really put any kind of number to it, other than saying that its a lot more than I used to. That's in no small part due to the fact that I actually have some level of income nowadays.

2007 Honda Accord my mom passed down to me when I got my license. Not thinking about upgrading until the car completely craps out or I'm out of college and finding a job, whatever comes first. The car has served us well since we got it used in 2013 or 2014 (can't fully remember, could've been 2012 honestly), and I like to think the former of the two is less likely, since my dad is very uptight with maintaining all of our cars.

I love EVGA. If I'm buying an nvidia card, I'm going to try my hardest to go EVGA.

For the past 3-4 years I've bought headphones almost exclusively from Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic.

Nintendo was my childhood and Playstation has been most of my adolescence, and as such I have a very soft spot for both.

Well... you didn't specify how much exactly so I'm going to highball it to $10B for fun. I'd save/invest a sizable percentage of it, get me and my friends through college and build us all nice gaming rigs, then probably go on one huge summer road trip with them. After all that I'd get a job and try to live modestly, using the savings as more of a safety net than anything. Definitely not going for million dollar cars or big, extravagant houses.

BO4's unlock system is pretty shady. Things are ludicrously overpriced and the grind to get them just isn't realistic for the average person. It's only a matter of time before they start locking new (and very good) guns in the system that you'll either have to grind 100+ hours for or shell out at least $20 bucks for. Every year they start out saying, "Look guys, it's only cosmetics this year!" As they add in hundreds of unicorn turd camos that 99% of people won't care about just to dilute your chances of getting the guns once they do add them in after christmas.

It's a $60 game with a loot system straight out of a free to play game.

Not a fan of the, "It's just cosmetics" argument either. Customization is a huge part of games like this and thus a big part of the enjoyment for players. Sure, they don't offer new advantages or playstyles like guns do but they absolutely do affect the player's experience. At least in bo3 there were several outfits you could just get by playing the specialists. Here there's zero, all specialist customization is paid and/or locked behind black market grind. CoD youtubers have been very vocal about their distaste for this system, as have fans. But it's making Activision loads of money through black ops pass sales and people willing to shell out the cash for this stuff, so it's not going anywhere unless we have a Battlefront 2 level backlash. Given how divided and toxic the cod community is though, I don't see that happening.

Speaking of cod youtubers, here's a good vid by driftor about some of the scummy stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0jaE5DoaNM

I have no experience with VA so I can't really say much. If you have enough to spend on an XB271HU, I'd say do it. You can upgrade GPU down the line. The monitor is gorgeous. Two and a half years and it looks as flawless as the day I got it.

There are some 60Hz IPS monitors at that size. IIRC, if you can hit 60+ fps you won't be seeing much screen tearing at 60Hz. You're losing out on some crispness compared to higher refresh rates, but it's still usable unless you're again playing more competitively.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "1060 6gb IPS or TN"

If you aren't going to be playing very competitively in those shooters then I'd recommend just going with the IPS. It'll make the games look a fair bit prettier and and the loss in responsiveness will be barely there if not entirely unnoticeable. I've been using IPS for two and a half years now and I don't see myself going back anytime soon.

I'm just regurgitating what's been said elsewhere, but I feel like there's no way they're not bringing the game to PC. R* not announcing a PC version yet is likely just a decision made by higher ups to drive more console version sales.

For them to not release a PC port at all seems VERY unlikely to me.

I watch some. My friends and I love DBZ/DBS, JoJo, and MHA. My favorite anime is probably Gurren Lagann, but I have a bunch of ones considered classics on my to-watch list, so that could change at some point.

My favorite manga is Berserk, and I highly recommend it if you can handle extremely graphic content. It influenced a LOT of tropes that are common in Japanese fantasy nowadays. Ever seen a main character wearing dark clothes and wielding a giant sword? Odds are he was inspired by Berserk's main character. Seriously, I could talk about Berserk for hours. Too bad it has a pretty spotty track record when it comes to anime adaptations...

PvP was just a pain to set up in BB, and that's why it didn't catch on as much. Build variety was pretty great especially with dlc weapons taken into consideration. I've played over a thousand hours in ds3 and a couple hundred in ds1, and I'd say BB isn't more restrictive at all. In DS1 and 3 there are very clearly defined pvp metas where a lot of weapons are outright useless/inferior, with every class having one or two standouts that dominate. Sure, numerically there are a lot less weapons and magic in BB but the weapons and spells are all much more distinct, with no two things quite fulfilling the same niche. The only playstyle not really supported by bloodborne is the slower, turtlier approach, which makes sense with the mechanics and pace of the game.

Outside of the combat system though, I also love bloodborne's atmosphere and soundtrack more than DS, but that part is just down to personal taste.

It is. Basic biology dictates it. The part of the hippocampus that holds memories long-term isn't developed until 3-4 years of age. It is plausible to have memories from a few months before this range, but memories from six months of age is completely impossible. What is actually happening is that he interpreted things his parents told him about this time as actual memories. In other words, it isn't his actual memory of this time, he's just repeating what he was told about it.

Super Eyepatch Wolf. His main thing is analysis and recommendations on anime and (My favorites are his ones on Berserk) but he also ventures some into western culture, with his most popular video being about the decline of The Simpsons. He's also done videos on pro wrestling, The Shining (horror seems to be one of his favorite genres), and Samurai Jack. Another thing about him I like is that at the end of every season of the year, he posts a video about his favorite things from that season, be it film, anime, games, etc.

I just wanted the software to control my hue. Instead I got an overly buggy program that tried to do way too many unneeded things and had problems doing most of them (it is supposed to be an all-in-one software for monitoring and controlling your whole system, from clock speeds to temps to lighting). My only nzxt product is my hue, but there's no standalone hue control software. Thankfully it at least keeps at what I set it on, but I can't tweak it further since the lighting option goes away so frequently and the only way I've gotten it to reappear is to change what mobo header the hue is plugged in to.

NZXT CAM. It's an acronym for something. Just remember that peoples' experiences tend to be 50/50 with it. Some don't have many problems at all and enjoy using it, others get nonstop bugs and malfunctions for things that should be basic. Unfortunately I wound up with the latter situation.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "[Opinions requested] State of RGB software(s)."

It's entirely possible that I was just unlucky or something, since I have seen plenty saying the software works just fine for them. I've seen about as many though complaining about it. Seems kinda 50/50.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "[Opinions requested] State of RGB software(s)."

  • 8 months ago

I tried nzxt cam for the first time this weekend. It was atrocious. I just wanted to get my hue up and running and the software worked normally for the first hour or two. Then the lighting option straight up disappeared. After several re-installs, restarts, and changing which USB header the hue was plugged into, the option finally came up again (keep in mind the hue itself was still functioning as I'd left it just fine during this time). I got it kinda how I wanted then the option had disappeared again the next time I opened cam. The part that read my temps also straight up froze for a few hours, so its a good thing I wasn't doing anything intensive during that time. It also failed to log me in several times for no discernible reason. I looked some of these issues up and apparently they aren't uncommon with the software. One of the cam support forums was filled with people telling nzxt to scrap the software entirely since it was so unreliable (it didn't help that all official support responses were basically the same, "Make sure its updated and try restarting things").

So that's my thoughts on cam. I'd like to think just about any other RGB software would perform better. Definitely not buying an nzxt product for a while if this is how bad their software is.

No. I played it for a bit way earlier this year. It was decently fun, but it didn't really keep my interest. I respect Epic and what they've accomplished with the game. I haven't played PUBG, but I've heard countless times about how much more polished and optimized Fortnite is.

On a slightly related note, the Blackout beta got me genuinely interested in CoD for the first time in a few years (and I certainly wasn't expecting it). Definitely buying it when it comes out. I'm excited to see CoD actually being a mainstream contender and bringing in new players again.
