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.

OT: Summer Games – It’s Started

June 28, 2017

Cornie reinstalled Diablo III. For those who can and want to play it (Zos mentioned the other day that he was wanting to play it) it is now on the menu. Blizzard apparently just released The Necromancer DLC, too. I won’t be able to play because Cornie’s home machine is in Canada, but I will be very happy to watch over his shoulder, or watch all y’all on Mixer.

On the other hand, one of Cornie’s evening gaming friends really wanted him to buy Dying Light so they could play it together. The dude generally doesn’t like cutscenes but is playing the 30 hour campaign again and watching all the cutscenes because the story is so good. Cornie decided he would buy it, so I suggested I would pay half if we bought it on my account (in celebration of Zos’ Chicken Dinner). Over the weekend, the boys moved my home account back to Japan. So, both of us can play it at the same time. Don’t know much more about it except that it has very solid reviews, and it has been out for a long time so it should be a smooth experience. Anyway, that is another game that I have on my HD now. 4 Player Co-Op, 5 Player MPVS (I think)

EDIT: Just watched the trailer and it looks pretty awesome.

EDIT 2: Just watched it again with Cornie and we agreed that it looked just like Sunset Overdrive, but with zombies, and blood, and language, and headshots. (NOTE: Just watch, in about 4 days it will be on sale for half the price we just paid! LOL!)

And this:

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?
