  1. From the developers that has brought us Armored Core, Dark Souls and Bloodborne - FromSoftware has now brought us Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The game is set during the Sengoku period in Japan (1460-1600). It was a time military conflict and constant social upheaval. Seems like the plot of this game is Sekiro attempts to take revenge on a samurai who attacked him and kidnapped his lord. As cited from Wikipedia. The game looks amazing graphically. A couple of differences between this and Dark Souls is the movement ability, being able to pause the game and being able to respawn when you die. I'm not completely sure of all the details, but I am excited. I haven't been this excited for a release since Monster Hunter World early last year. I already have the game pre-ordered. The game releases on PS4, Xbox One and Steam on March 22, 2019. The official launch trailer was released today:
  2. Fortnite

    The majority of people still suck at this game. But yea, people have gotten better over time. You just have to push yourself to learn how to build. If not, there's this game called Apex Legends that is there for people who want an easier game to play.
  3. Fortnite

    The guy absolutely dominates on PC using a Xbox controller. These are just random clips he got from playing for a bit. I guarantee you if @MookieMonstah saw an opponent do what he did in just the first clip, he would say he's cheating or using a mouse and keyboard. Dude.... that holding the building and shooting that quick to kill him at 45 seconds. Oooof
  4. Fortnite

    First of all, the game play is in the best state it's been at in a long time. The problem with consoles right now is the lag and all the bugs associated with it. They just pushed out a patch today, but it doesn't fix the problem. Secondly, full mouse and keyboard support has been on Xbox for a long time now. You simply plug in a mouse and keyboard and you're all set. There's no need for a third party adapter anymore. Other games have full mouse and keyboard support too - Warframe is an example. Finally, you'd honestly be surprised what people do with a controller. There is a team that plays on console called Ghost gaming.... They have a player, his name is Ayden and he's one of the best players in the world. The dude ROUTINELY dominates pro PC players while playing with a controller. This guy plays with a Xbox controller on PC (used to play on a Xbox One) and he post videos everyday or every other day and he always post 20-30 kill games. This dude is one of the best players I've ever seen in my life.... controller. This guy has amazing aim... like it's better than 99% of the people who play with a mouse.
  5. You guys have to remember, there is more to this world than just the United States. This service won't really be great here since the average person's internet speed is terrible. But there are certain cities that have pulled together and brought some amazing internet to their part of the country. The people of Cedar Falls, Iowa have come together and got faster broadband. Internet speeds there are on par with some of the fastest speeds on earth. There are other cities in the United States that have done this, Cedar Falls is just one example. But this could really be a good thing in other countries. For example, Seoul, South Korea might have the fastest internet speeds in the world on a person-per-person basis on average. This streaming service might really take off there.
  6. Apex Legends (F2P BR)

    Also, after playing.... The XP is leveled through XP only. There are no weekly or daily challenges in this game like there is in Fortnite that literally give you free battle pass tiers. I guess in this game, the XP required per level doesn't increase, so that's good. I believe it's about 29,500 XP to level up, which for the average player, is actually quite a lot. Next season, they will change it. I remember when season 2 in Fortnite was based on XP only and it was like hell for so many people. They changed it after that season. Also, even though it's first person others can see skins. The problem with this battle pass is that the 4 skins included in this pass are pretty much re-skins, which is a joke. My favorite character in this game is Lifeline.... the skin she has is literally her default skin, but it has gold accents on it. Several character didn't get a skin at all.
  7. I mean it was, considering that literally nobody else said that. KAT was the consensus best player by most people. Russell wasn't even the consensus best guard. Severel people had Mudiay as the best guard prospect. At that point, almost nobody had Russell mocked as the #2 pick.
  8. Oh snap, found it. I see a left handed Brandon Roy. A lot of people compare him to James Harden and he has some of he same skill sets as Harden does (can create his own offense, good jump shooter, unselfish, really good passer/court vision). I have stated that I would take Russell #1 overall, so of the teams that are projected to have a lottery pick his best fit is with the Philadelphia 76ers. Nerlens Noel is hands down one of the best defenders in the NBA and I am really high on Joel Embiid. Adding Russell on the perimeter with those front court guys would be an amazing fit. http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=564072&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=90
  9. I need someone to go back to the old forum and dig up that draft thread and even stuff before that. I called Russell being the best player from that draft.
  10. D'Angelo Russell straight up for LeBron James. Who says no? Probably Brooklyn tbh.
  11. Nintendo Switch Thread

    I got $65 eShop credit. The obvious thing to buy is Zelda, but I kind of don't want to because I still got a bunch of other games to play and that game will take so much time.
  12. Apex Legends (F2P BR)

    I'll give them a pass because it's their first pass. And yea, the fact that this is a first person game makes character skins much less desirable... but they still don't include anything but 4 basic skins/recolors in this entire battle pass.
  13. 2019 NFL Draft Talk

    Maybe Jeffery Simmons, I'm not sure.
  14. 2019 NFL Draft Talk

    The Seattle Seahawks cap off a very promising season with a postseason appearance and now it's time for draft talk. The Seahawks hold the 21st overall pick. Who are you all hoping the team takes a look at? What positions are you hoping to sure up? For me, I wouldn't mind looking at a corner. I'm not sure Shaq Griffin is a #1 CB in this league. He's good, but maybe he's better served as a #2.
  15. Everything Pokemon Thread!

    Okay so, I'm playing Pokemon Lets Go Eevee. I caught a Pokemon with a great throw and then it pops out. I caught again with an excellent throw then it pops out again and then runs away. Why did this happen? The game suggested that I throw down a berry at first, so I did that and it still popped out. The next Pokemon I caught, the same thing happened. After the second throw, I gave him a berry and the circle went from yellow to green. So I'm assuming he was too high of a Pokemon for me to catch and I maybe weakened him a bit with the berry? Also, what do Pokemon with those blue effects around them mean? That I've caught a bunch of them so now they have that effect or does it mean something else? I'm just assuming things because this game doesn't tell you why things are happening.
  16. Nintendo Switch Thread

    Just a note for everyone. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/03/a_splatoon_2_demo_has_just_launched_on_switch_includes_free_online_trial_and_money_off_full_game The demo will allow players to jump into 4-on-4 Turf War battles, Salmon Run, League Battle, and Ranked Battle modes online with friends and other players who own the full game. This also comes with a code for a free 7 day trial of Nintendo Online even if you have already used your initial free 7 day trial. The code will be emailed to you once you download the demo. And finally, Splatoon 2 will be 20% off starting tomorrow. All progress you make in this demo will be carried over to the actual game should you decide to buy it. The demo runs for one week, so from tomorrow 3/19 until 3/25. As for me, I'm super interested in this. I have always wanted to try this game before buying it. If I enjoy it, then I'll probably buy it since it will be on sale as well.
  17. Nintendo Switch Thread

    I think Odyssey would be easier for them to do. They can literally make any type of lands they want (almost no restrictions here) and they can just add a ton new things to capture. For some reason, I think that we get a Odyssey sequel in 2020 along with Animal Crossing. Unless Animal Crossing comes out this year, which a lot of people think it will, but I don't for some reason.
  18. Nintendo Switch Thread

    How much longer until we see an announcement of a new Zelda or Mario game? Both Zelda Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are both almost two years old at this point. Both of those games are arguably the greatest in the history of each franchise, respectively. Because of that, the game engines, graphical assets and properties are already in place, so a sequel for Breath of the Wild or Odyssey could in theory easier to make than the originals. Nintendo has released a sequel for a game on a relatively fast turn around (for Nintendo standards) in the past. Super Mario Galaxy released at the end of 2007 and Super Mario Galaxy 2 released mid-2010. So about three years and a sequel was released. Part of the reason they could do this is because they already created the engine, assets and properties in the first game. Thus, in the second game, they could expand it and make it bigger and better. Both Super Mario Odyssey and Zelda Breath of the Wild are all-time great games, but both have so much potential that can be reached with a sequel. Hopefully we get some wind of a sequel later this year or sometime in 2020 with a future release date.
  19. Apex Legends (F2P BR)

    Not to be negative, but the battle pass rewards are extremely underwhelming. 20% of the rewards in the battle pass are just badges with level numbers on them. Wow. https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/battle-pass
  20. Apex Legends (F2P BR)

    Battle pass comes out tomorrow. Pretty much following the same setup Fortnite introduced. Been looking forward to this. I'm for sure reaching level 100 (or whatever the highest tier is).
  21. I need a good playoff run by Giannis, then I will crown him the best player in the world. It's coming soon.
  22. Random Game Talk

    Kind of ballsy for them to return considering last year's E3 was the start of them ruining the reputation of their entire company
  23. Random Game Talk

    It sucks because even with a legendary property like Star Wars, which will practically sell itself, they still can't make a quality game. Lol
  24. Random Game Talk

    Yea, heroes vs villains wasn't bad. I like Battlefront 2 more than BFV, but both those games were failures. The funny thing about both is, they got absolutely shredded before they even came out lol
