So the Pinball FX3 series has inherited the licence to make the old classic Bally, Williams, Stern, Gottlieb etc.

I didn't know that, I knew Pinball Arcade had lost them years ago but there were rumors that each were doing their own thing with various pinball devs.

I've got like 500 hours in Pinball Arcade, I love the recreations.
Pinball FX series has always felt slightly faker to me but it's still pretty good.

I feel ya, FX3's in-house tables just feel like a videogame, and all the extra nonsense they add to the "real life" tables take away from the experience. At least you can turn all those effects off, like the 3D characters, neon ball trails, and score pop-ups like a JRPG.

They released Circus Voltaire, Arabian Nights, Medieval Madness, and Theatre of Magic on FX3, which are some of my fav tables. Unfortunately you have to buy them in 3-pack bundles which come with garbage tables :/

I miss Star Trek TNG, Ripleys Believe it or Not, and some others from Pinball Arcade.

Pretty sad that neither company has ever released 4k versions for PS4 Pro/Xbox One X. Very disappointing. They have them on Steam, so the assets are done, absolutely no reason to port them to console. Games just feel better with a big TV and a controller IMO.

Steam link solves this issue.

Pinball isn't a game you want to feel even the slightest of input delay...
I've tried the steam link with pinball arcade... it's definitely doable... but if you're serious about getting precise shots it's not there yet

if it was constant I could probably adapt better, but unfortunately the delay is often variable... from not noticing it at all to the 1 in 50 very bad delay

this reminds me of a chinese knockoff of sorts, with the gameplay of CS but visual style of overwatch... can't they come up with something new?!?!

lol

of course, they're blatantly ripping off CStrike with no fucks given, but wasn't their League of Legends a ripoff of DOTA? so it's not their first time ripping off a game.

They think they can make a better CS.
It's been a while since a big studio has tried.
People consider the gameplay outdated yet CSGO is still huge competitively, mix some OW/TF2 character abilities into it, promise the best netcode and anticheat ever... they certainly have the money to throw at it.

It's a combination of CS and Overwatch with a primary focus on competition / pros.
It's been tried before... but hey maybe this time it will work.

this guy has a really good video summarizing it:

I've tried to like Terraria but I can't get over the 2D side scrolling and how it turns into almost like a shootemup with the combat. I skipped the 8 and 16 bit generations of consoles and just haven't been able to adapt.

I've also always wanted to get into Spelunky but haven't been able to for the same reason.
Side scrolling combat D;

Meh, what about the multiplayer? COD is a mindless shooter in general but this is one of the better ones.

For MP?
Wasn't this one with the clusterfuck of peer hosted servers?
Or did they fix that while it was still being played?

Foxnews is by far the best cable news and its not even close but you keep living in your leftist cult world.

I'm taking this as sarcasm, I just have to. I'd meet anyone with throw them all in a dumpster, but one would only think Fox is the best if that is all you listen to, but that would apply to any source.

Nah, not sarcasm. Timmeh is a true believer.

Now that you say it is based on 2020 taxes, I do vaguely remember something about that. At the risk of seeming to be a complete idiot though, it is still not clear to me what is being proposed.

Is this a $1,200 reduction in my 2020 tax bill regardless of whether I am in the red or black concerning my Apr 15 2021 tax filing. Or is this an adjustment to my filing. ie... If I would normally be due a $2,000 refund next March, instead I would get $800, because I already got $1,200? And if normally I would have to pay $2,000, instead I will owe $3,200?

I don't think so...

Your 2020 Stimulus Check: How Much? When? And Other Questions Answered

It's a tax credit.
So in your first scenario where you were going to get a $2,000 tax refund... this is more like changing your tax refund to $3,200 (assuming individual and not joint file)... and then giving you $1,200 of that refund right away... and $2,000 come actual refund time.

And in your second scenario, where you were going to owe $2000... Now you owe $800, but they gave you $1200, and when it comes tax time... you still end up owing $2000.

At least I think that's right.
even if you earned 3 dollars last year the calculator says you still get 1200 https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/business/coronavirus-stimulus-check-calculator/

I'm not sure how that's related to anything I wrote... but yep, that's right.

Yeah my friends and I are pretty exclusively playing Plunder.
Finally starting to run into teams that actually give us a run for our money (literally) and not just rooftop sniping and unending parachutes.
That's still there of course but it's nice to encounter teams attempting the objective and getting that money.

So what he and you are saying is that as a normal game HL:A is dumb, but as a VR gimmick it is great?

To be clear that's not a new Warzone (the BR) map but just a regular new COD map.

The new operator and 4 new weapons are available in Warzone mode though.

Convert that experience to M+KB, and you may as well replay HL2.

Granted that's what many people want. Ep3, HL3, whatever.
O.K., but Valve did not make that game.
People have been wanting a 3 for over a decade.

Yes, but that's what people want, and the game supports modding, so people will make it, which is the entire point of what Robin Walker said

You seem to have missed the point of what he said...
His point was, you're going to see how dumb this game is without VR and therefore he welcomes that.
He couched it as an experiment, but he believes he knows the outcome already.

That Covid bump is something else.
Lots of mp games are seeing an increase as was mentioned in another thread. Id expect this to be a great quarter for all facets of the game industry.

-Edit-
1,093,791 1,102,067 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
523,950 717,882 Dota 2
174,177 182,096 Football Manager 2020
161,488 189,717 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
145,509 188,463 Grand Theft Auto V
124,098 527,361 PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS

The first number is current players, the second is Peak Today.
Check out the huge swing on PuBg?

Depending on the time you looked at the current players, typically those differences between peak and current reflect how popular the game is in Asia. Note the noticeable diff on Dota 2 as well.
