I haven't picked it up yet, but will as soon as gmg has it back in stock. Not sure how a digital code can go "out of stock" but it's been like this for weeks.

I'm glad the game is doing well. I've had fun with the beta

Third party sites do not have key generators, they have to acquire batches of codes from publishers same as retailers get shipments of physical copies.

Samsung thinks millennials want vertical TVs.

Rocket launches and long document editing. That's the only time you should use a vertical screen.

Humans evolved as plains dwellers. Viewing the world in landscape mode is our default setting.

Beyond the clickbait headline, they explain this new TV rotates to support horizontal or vertical, which is meant for embiggulating things from your smartphone screen/camera. A niche usage befitting its place in Samsung's line of designer TVs that cost 5x the normal price because they're made to look nice even when not in use, like high-end furniture.

They're always full of snark, just read any page of their website. The FAQ for Satisfactory is particularly silly and generally unhelpful.

Man, how I've come to hate the term waifu.

Was it ever a good and useful term?

No. Truth be told, I always hated it, but now it seems to bleed out of the anime community and into general internet parlance, it's even more annoying.

I thought it just meant anime chick?

Only the ones you like-like.

Lol, the trailer is actually kinda funny, they're definitely lampooning Mass Effect.

When you smokers end up with lung cancer I pity your last days struggling to breathe until you choke to death. That is a horrific way to die. Having seen it, I would ask that you stay away from putting smoke in your lungs.

Funny how the horrible, capitalistic greedy cigarette companies encouraged smoking, and how evil they were.
But now, pot is awesome, no no harmful effects at all, hey let's legalized it everywhere. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong. And we're not like those evil companies at all, because we care about your health.

Marlboro Greens are coming, guaranteed. And they'll be stuffed full of additives same as their tobacco cigs.

Why's it called "In Defense of Aliens"? Isn't the exact opposite happening here?

'Defending Cute & Cuddly Aliens from Mean & Scary Aliens' isn't quite as catchy.

It's sad how costume make-up has been conflated with *that* now... We are way too bored/complacent as a species.

So a Jedi version of Force Unleashed.. Not very creative, but it should be fun unless they really went out of their way to screw it up.

They Are Billions is definitely to thank for proving RTS is still something people want. I'm happy to see a publisher giving the genre a chance again, even if they're being safe with a copy-cat game.

Soul Calibur 4 split the Star Wars characters based on console. PS3 had Darth Vader and Xbox 360 had Darth Vader. Then a few months after release you could buy the other character as a $5 DLC.

And it was indeed shitty.

So both had actually Darth Vader but you could still buy... uhm... *headexplodes*

Sorry, I don't get it.

That's a brain fart, one console had Vader and the other Yoda.

Well I don't know the character because I didn't play that Telltale spin-off, and apparently most people are in the same boat because it did not do well in sales. They pulled all but a handful of devs from the project before the five episodes were done, which was itself a compromise when they wanted to cancel it completely. Why would you spend the money on an expensive actor for a role so few are familiar with? A small portion of hardcore fans will be disappointed, but nobody else will notice.

PayPal is such a shitty service for sellers to use, even eBay is in the process of phasing them out... It won't matter how buyer-friendly they are if nobody accepts it anywhere, which in light of changes such as this is likely to happen sooner rather than later. And now that most major banks have their own systems for instant cash transfer between individuals, there's no need to use PayPal for that, either. They can eat a dick for all I care.

Why is there an issue with people leaving a battle royale game early? (serious question.)

I mean, if there's four left and 2 leave early, then the two who are left are 1 and 2, what's the big deal?

At least for now, Apex is a team-based game, you're forced to play in squads of three.

This just makes me wonder how shitty the co-op experience is going to be, since I assume they won't be using Steamworks for online functionality anymore if the game gonna be exclusive to Epic... They can barely be bothered to keep up with ensuring their own Fortnite Save the World operates without massive lag, connection issues, and random server-side data loss.

I suppose this is nice if you really want an official collectible for your shelf, but they've had other SEGA plug-and-play consoles with the same games rotting on retail shelves for years because they farmed it out to third parties. Add that to them releasing classic game compilations on pretty much all the other consoles throughout the past decade (including Switch a few months ago), and I doubt this will make much of a splash at all. They definitely won't be moving millions of units and making scalpers' mouths water like Nintendo has done, twice so far.

$40 for this alone must be some kind of joke, considering that's the same price for the AC Odyssey season pass which this is included with... I guess they really just want to make you feel like you're getting a great deal when they slash the price by half in a few weeks.

A year of NSO is probably the coolest Twitch Prime giveaway so far, IMO. They're actual voucher codes like you'd buy at a store, too, so you can redeem them and they'll stack to add more time to your sub if you're already signed up.

I'm about two hours in to it. It's not a bad game but there is nothing about it, so far, that screams "this is so much better than anything else". I will say that there definitely needs to be some adjustment to either how much damage is done to the player or they need to tone down the enemy spawns.

One mission I had to do was to go to a hunter's house and retrieve his rifle. There were three robodogs that patrolled constantly and no amount of sneaking or combat didn't end up with me being dead. It was super frustrating.

I will, however, say that it is not nearly as engaging as Mad Max was. That game hooked you within the first five minutes.

You gave me a BSOD with that Mad Max reference. I don't see anything that connects these two games.

That was this studio's last open world action game that wasn't another Just Cause. It's a shame that they don't seem to have handled having so many irons in the fire lately very well (this plus JC4 plus Rage 2).
