I give you...

THE PIKACHU TRAILER

I missed the Pokemon craze, but my daughter loves it. At least Ryan Reynolds is in it, I'm sure I will have to watch it.

I kept expecting pikachu to drop F-bombs.

Maybe if its successful we can get a Detective Pikachu x The Wire crossover reboot.

Honestly, I thought they were going to mention zophar. lol

zophar doesnt have roms linked on his site so he should be good to go. love his site and the non-mame page for keeping up to date on good emulators.

And the award for highest amphetamine use of the year goes to.... NINJA!

Blessed by the pharmaceutical industry, for sure. The coke habit can't be cheap either.

"Cloudpunk" made me think of the story of "Cloud", from this old VHS with animations from a festival/competition in Japan I somehow managed to hold on to since the 80's, called Robot Carnival.

All their future titles are Microsoft exclusive now and will only be available from the Windows Store, most likely.

Huge fucking fail.

New Research Shows Vitamin D And Fish Oil Supplements May Not Be Worth It.

That's strange, a better title for the article would have been "New Research Shows Vitamin D and Fish Oil Supplements reduce Heart Attack by 28%, and 75% in African Americans".

Fine and Manson stressed that vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are important nutrients, but the best way to get them is as part of a well-balanced diet. That includes eating fatty fish like sardines, tuna and salmon, and vitamin-D fortified cereals, milk, and orange juice.

sardines are kind of nasty, tuna is full of mercury and you only get omega-3's from wild salmon, farmed salmon doesn't have any (or very little depending on what they're fed). Ask people that live in Iceland about the nutritional benefit of fish oil and vitamin-D, when you live in complete darkness for several months of the year they can't live without supplementing.

with more and more people basking in the light from our monitors and TV's all day every day instead of outside sunlight, I think it would be wise to supplement with Vitamin D and Fish Oil - or even better Hemp Oil.


I also found it strange that they used this particular headline when they had those kinds of dramatic results in the study. That is rather significant.

I work remotely for a UK company, and probably spend a half hour a workday *at most* with e-mail.

Are these people with 5+ hours working in some kind of communications role, I wonder? That seems ludicrously wasteful unless the type of business you conduct is all e-mail based.

any interest I had in this instantly went out the window when I saw it is just a vehicle to sell $1.99 virtual card packs.

Hard fucking pass.

This had to be a monumental failure on PC for them to offer all these freebies within a year of release.

You said it , never pre-order.....never!

Only other game I've pre-ordered in the past decade was GTA V on pc, and only because I knew I would be playing day 1 with my multi-game racing clan, NODO, and it was like $45 from GMG. Easy choice there. I'll probably pre-order cyberpunk2077 as well. It's not really something I do often, as I can count the number of times I've pre-ordered any game on any console, since ~1990, on one hand.

Do those work pretty well? I read that they lose their heating ability pretty quickly and can be a pain in the ass with people melting them while trying to boil/recharge.

I don't know why people don't like Fortnite. It's keeping all the 12-year-olds out of real games.

epic games and Nintendo are kind of providing this "hidden service", I guess. Gotta keep that riff raff at bay.

Do I need to bother if I don't have a 20x0 card? I wish they'd just say that.

usually with a newer gen card, especially with a dramatic core architecture change, i would stay on top of updating the driver more frequently as new issues are worked out.

really depends on whether a game you play got patched or some other core issue.

News Comments > Final Fantasy XV Cancels DLC

6. Re: Final Fantasy XV Cancels DLC Nov 8, 2018, 18:55 Mordecai Walfish
 
Square has sunk so much money into very mediocre games under his leadership, with ff XV being probably the best work he was responsible (in part) for, and now they shut that down and let him go.

I think it's a good thing. Maybe they can find someone that will give their long time fans what they've been asking for, instead of the monumental money drains they've been churning out. The mmo was good after they scrapped the original one too.. but having to rebuild the game like that must have taken a tremendous amount of money and resources to what was supposed to be a already-finished game.

Give us remakes that aren't fucking Android/mobile ports. It's nice their games are coming to PC now, but most of them are pump n' dump Android ports which is just fucking sad. The amount of money they squandered by not doing their old titles justice with proper remakes is astonishing. FF7 is in the works.. but who knows if that will even come out at this point, with how endlessly teased and delayed it's been.

Either way, hopefully they do better with new leadership. Square can and should do better.

still playing through the first before i dig into this one. havent even heard or seen anything since release, just the trailer that came out a couple weeks before. Sounds like they pulled off a monumental success with those sales numbers though. Holy cow.
