Let's Game!

Omar: I'll do what I can to help y'all. But, the game's out there, and it's play or get played. That simple.

Dennis 'Cutty' Wise: The game done changed...
Slim Charles: Game's the same, just got more fierce.

The OT: Serious Chan

June 26, 2017

I love Jackie Chan even though I don’t like all of his movies.  I have only seen one non-comedy Chan movie, the title of which I cannot remember because he is so prolific.  I do remember, however, wishing that he would do more.   Though I am weary of the revenge genre (the cycle of violence that can’t be stopped by throwing in more violence and hate), I am looking forward to The Foreigner.

And, for those interested, Plinkett has a review up for the new Transformers movie. I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, but I’ve little doubt it is entertaining, and no doubt that it is better than the source content he is reviewing.

Finally, the Monthly Update for PUBG is almost upon us (as if I am playing the game, lol) but there is no mention of the vaulting animations. I am wondering if they are saving all of that for the One X release. Hmm… Anyway, today they discuss loot balancing. More tomorrow apparently.

P.S. I signed up to Amazon for One X pre-order notification. Shit got real. I can always cancel being notified when pre-ordering becomes possible (lol), but until that becomes absolutely necessary, I will live high and bright, as if it is going to happen. I have a dream.

The OT: They Have No Idea!

June 22, 2017

The NBA Draft starts in an hour or so.  I will be posting about it in the previous thread.  In the meantime, I couldn’t wait to start something new.  Cornie has the RL virus really bad right now, high fever, and seemed genuinely enthusiastic when I offered to play with him.  Of course, a cheerful response to a partnership offer always make me feel great because I know how little I bring to the arena.  Anyway, we played for about an hour last night, and then this morning when I opened my Xbox App, I saw this message from one of the gamers we played against, “comfortable backpack?”  I guess he and his teammate didn’t like getting owned by one and a half men.  I am still laughing.  (I would have liked to have told him he was pwned by a six year old, but that is no longer true.)

Anyway, happy gaming and happy summer!  Lots to be thankful for and lots to be excited about!

The OT: The 2017 NBA Draft

June 18, 2017

This will be the first year, in any sport, that I take a peek at a Draft. There is lots of buzz around a lot of players this year. Time to move on from E3, and this week, basketball will be heavily in the news and on my mind.

And coming from the world of jump shots, check this out.

PUBG + Mixer x 4 > AOGRN (all other games right now)

I really hope that Bluehole slams a homer when mapping the controls to the gamepad. Zos, you mentioned that people can already play with a gamepad, would you be interested in testing it to see how it feels?

Finally, thanks for the earphone tip, Blank.  I looked around.  It considerably cheaper for me to have them shipped from Amazon US than to get them from Amazon Japan.  I am going to wait, however, until PUBG becomes available.  I can’t locate my dongle, er, um, I can’t find the adapter so I will just buy a new controller and the earbuds at the same time.  Celebrate the occasion.  I have a question, can you change the volume party chat/game sound ratio using that system?
