They can keep going just leave Nathan Drake out of it. Agreed 4 was a great capstone, brought all of the themes of the series to maturity.

Quordle is fun though I do not think it is 4x wordle since your guesses are doing a ton of work on the board. Maybe 1.7x Wordle.

Regarding the date notation, just to be needlessly pedantic, since this combination only works if you write it in european style (which imo is inferior, year-month-date makes the most sense in the computer age), and the year itself is sort of guesswork based on a particular date with some error. But mostly I'm just rationalizing never feeling like I celebrate these rare occurrences correctly.

The fighting game community has moved onto Discord if you want to get back into it. New Challenger or game specific one make it easy to find new communities to play in (as opposed to just getting beaten up on ranked).

This was a really nice update on the God of War themes and systems. It's 40$ in a lot of places right now.
Play on hard for a nice challenge.

I've become more excited about this as it occurred to me it is essentially a vita upgrade. Kind of want to let everyone else alpha test though before I get one.

Re: The Sopranos' Lorraine Bracco was "upset" with Dr. Melfi's final scene.

Wow what a bad take. Thats why you need showrunners instead of committees, the aggregate hivemind writers room always pushes character arcs towards being nice, redemptive, and clean which doesn't really resemble the real world at all.

The gamer awards already exist, they're on Steam and no one gives a shit what wins.

These lists are pointless without some curation. I already know about Halo, Deathloop, and Forza. The media campaigns already carpet bombed me, I don't feel like I need to play them. Ranking them against each other is more faff.

Its surprising to me that after 20 years BF is still the only series that makes helicopters interesting. This one looks pretty "been there done that" though

The time is right for the Jake Paul campaign mode.

Edit : Looking back at the old thread it is hilarious how many old beloved games they made while the last decade has been goose egg.

They definitely have become elder statesman on the gaming gen but I find them to still be reliably poignant and funny.

Here's a bit from a recent tycho missive-
Gabriel barely made it past the intro of Far Cry 6, and I hadn't even bought it yet. I feel like being negged for engagement by marketing emails is probably not going to be effective broadly, but who knows. "Horse Armor" is still used as a shorthand for microtransactional excess, but they made millions off it and in the modern era it constitutes the business model of… well, long story short, such purchases constitute "the business model" almost full stop. Anyway, I don't really know what's going on over there but I used to buy a lot of their stuff and now I buy almost none of it. That's probably a trendline worth investigating.

Both new guys look pretty fun and they made some quality of life changes too. 6 years later SFV is good!

What always cracked me up in the Bourne movies--I 'd read the Ludlum books long before these movies were made--but the fast-motion 2x-3x speed up made the Bourne fights look very cheesy--and funny, too...;)


Non. Stop. Shaking. Camera.

No, it does not feel immersive. It feels cheap and hides everything we should see going on.

Yeah there's a fight with a dirty towel in the third one that is filmed like Bourne was attacking the camera man, I think that was peak shakey cam. Pretty glad it's mostly died off.

What kind of person entombs someone in concrete?

John Wayne Gacy was partial to it

Whats the issue that modders have on the Nexus Mods thing? Is it just a principles thing? Why would you care that much that someone can access your stuff? In the modern age of the internet Ive come to assume anything you blast out there will be up forever and also no one will care because of the glut.
