The game is a lot of fun. I'll play several matches each night. I still kinda suck, but I have improved. The balance is fairly good, with only a few tweaks needed most likely. It'll be interesting to see what kind of longevity it has.

Friend me on B.net at TheHalfElf#11957 I play with mrgrosser and mordicai, and would be more then happy to help ya learn the game and tactics.

I'm 53, male, and play video games daily. World Of Tanks, BF4, Uncharted 4 (amongst others) on the console. I've been playing since my (then) wife won a Nintendo 64 when they first came out - haven't stopped!

I suspect (and hope) we're going to see a huge shift in gaming, as the 2600/NES generation ages. It's going to become less of an age stigma and more of something everyone does...

(I turned 41 a few months ago.)


Ditto nin, should we get matching canes with tennis balls on the bottom (UP style?)

Just because someone has a level of 1 and someone has a level of 20 means NOTHING. There is no gear, or cards, unless you could some stickers and skins to be UBER OP'd!

The story makes sense: you`re a brother from a black MOB wrecking revenge on the Italian MAFIA. So I suppose it`s a MAFIA game, okay?

My only problem is that the main dude is so pumped up and psychotic it kind of ruins the party. Gee, smoke a doob or something. I suppose revenge is a serious thing, but come on.

And then there`s gameplay, if they again wanna try and sell me an open city which is actually an empty city, then it`d be a bummer.

Ya nailed it for me sir.

I would hope, with it's size, that maybe it couldn't move that fast, but I wouldn't risk it, either.

I saw somewhere where one of the people that works at the golf said it's been there awhile, so I guess it's used to people.


All you can eat buffet in brightly easily to spot colors, perfect lawn care, and a pool? What's not to love!

Ok looking for more Overwatch players. I'd really like to start a regular group as mrgrosser, mordicai, and myself were playing last night.

Woah woah woah.. Vito is in Mafia 3?!? Hmmmmmmmmm.

It's been too long since I played it, which one was Vito? Joe was your buddy that got the bad ending, right? Can't remember...


Vito was the main guy in Mafia 2.

The only thing I've ever said was from the gameplay video's shown, is that it's more like Rambo (except he's black) with PTSD at the start of the game. Why? Because they game looks like it's going for a over the top feel when the main character stabs the holy shit out of guys. It appears they created a new franchise and just threw the mafia name on it and are including Vito to connect Mafia 2 and 3.
I'll be watching this carefully, but it seems to have a few too many over the top moments that I personally wouldn't include in a game called Mafia 3, especially the crazy taxi moments.

Was playing with Mordicai the other night and playing my boy Lucio I got knocked into the giant pit on the coastal level. Skated my way up the inside wall and got out and a min later got knocked back in and again skated my way up the wall. Not to be egotistical but THAT was the play of game for all time! Sadly no way to re-watch it.

Yeah heard about this Saturday and if you lived in the Cincinnati area you understand that there are some parents (quite a few) that just don't give a shit what their kids do as long as they aren't annoying the parent.
That being said after watching the gorilla pick the kid up out of the water and stand them up, then pull up the kids pants and take care of the kid it was sad that they decided to kill the gorilla.

Yesterday while I was playing Planetside 2, me and my driver went 80-90/0. We got 4 death threats, 3 compliments, several random messages and a request for helping a guy on how to position your tank to avoid getting C4d.
Oh, the humanity.

Well you did kill 80-90 other people and were in a tank, what do you expect? Flowers and Chocolates?

pffft, I don't even wake up unless it's a Category 2 Hurricane when I lived in Florida.

Now heat wise has been a surprise this year. Typically here in the Mid-West when we have bad winters we have nicer summer's and vice versa. But the last two years we had pretty mild winter's and summers. But I finally had to turn my air on yesterday as it wasn't so much the heat (87) but the humidity was pretty high.

The point being "easily." Which means that I am confident I could go above that.

How about we name TV shows with Asians as first billing. I'll counter with ones with white people as first billing.

Do you think you can get to 5%?

Shows with Asians with top-billing:
- Fresh off the Boat
- Master of None
- Mindy Kaling Show
- Hawaii Five-O
- Nikita
- Dr. Ken
- Selfie

Shows with Asians with major arcs as part of an ensemble cast:
- Lost
- Heroes
- The Walking Dead
- BSG
- Grey's Anatomy
- Glee
- Agents of Shield
- Community
- Quantico
- Sense8

I await your list of 300 shows.

On a more serious note, here's an article that breaks things down:
- Asians in a lead role: 6%
- Shows containing multiple Asian characters: 7%
- TV Shows containing any Asian at all: 38%

Also Sherlock and Person's of Interest.

The trailer wasn't all that appealing, however I have no doubt this game is going to be great. The team has had plenty of time to work on this and I feel they inject all that they can in their Mafia games before releasing them, with no stone left unturned.

What you basically get each Mafia release is an updated graphic engine, with as much as they could put in to the game storywise to provide you with practically a feature film gangster/mafia movie.

Who knows, the graphics we saw here might be from the console version. Mafia was never #1 on graphics either way. It's story was what carried them.

Did you play Mafia 2? Beside the story missions (which rates as one of my favorites) there was NOTHING else to do in the game except steal cars and buy clothes. Huge giant city that was fucking WASTED. And the graphics for the time were both top notch in Mafia 1 and 2.
