If a game dies out on PS4 with 60 million plus users then crossplay will not save it. Be realistic. Crossplay won’t save trash games.

falconbox [score hidden]

Save them forever? Of course not.

Give them maybe 6 months more life? Probably.

Any additional life for a game is a good thing.

Sony is not fucking over gamers. They have the best exclusives by far and the best third party support. Which is why they are destroying Xbox and it’s not even close anymore. Xbox isn’t even PlayStations main competition anymore it’s Nintendo.

You realize you can be selling well and still be fucking people over at the same time, right?

Hell, Battlefront 2 was one of the best selling games of the year. That doesn't let EA off the hook for fucking gamers over.

The problem is that there's no real way to fix the fact that the relationship doesn't really have anything to do with the rest of the show, and that they keep having long-ish scenes that completely stall out the rest of the show whenever they have Alex/Maggie relationship scenes.

This is actually making me realize (part of) why The Flash writers probably had Iris become part of Team Flash--if spending less time on the Barry/Iris relationship isn't something they're willing to consider, then the fact that they keep having Barry/Iris solo scenes is probably less objectionable than it would be if it was the majority of Iris's screen time, even accounting for the fact that it often feels like "what exactly is Iris doing on the team?"

Maybe if you just look at the show about being "beat up the bad guys."

But many people want to see the lives of the other characters. That's still part of the show.

I'm definitely not one of those people, but what you're saying is kind of the point. Black Americans, despite being a small minority of the total population, account for a vastly disproportionate amount of certain undesirable things, like violent crime.

It's one of those things that many Americans know (or at least feel because of their experiences) but will rarely talk about. Not knowing about it or pretending it's not an issue just makes you seem out of touch or ignorant of the realities of US life.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_crime_in_the_United_States

According to the US Department of Justice, African Americans accounted for 52.5% of all homicide offenders from 1980 to 2008, with whites 45.3% and "Other" 2.2%

and

According to the National Crime Victimization Survey in 2002, the black arrest rate for robbery was 8.55 times higher than whites, and blacks were 16 times more likely to be incarcerated for robbery than non-Hispanic whites. Robberies with white victims and black offenders were more than 12 times more common than the reverse.[51][52]

and

Overall, Black Americans are arrested at 2.6 times the per-capita rate of all other Americans, and this ratio is even higher for murder (6.3 times) and robbery (8.1 times).[71][72]

I'm surprised it doesn't. On PS4, I know it only downloads updates for games you've played fairly recently. No idea on what that timetable is, but I know sometimes I'll start up a game I haven't played in 5-6 months and will have to download an update.

You killed all 3? There's the Gold Stubby in the city, the Gold Tank in the desert near the Apartments, and the Gold Biped in the Flooded City. You have to fight them in that order, and you only get the part after finishing each. There is no quest markers and I think they only appear in Route B. They're also Guaranteed drops, so unless you didn't pick them up or you sold them, they should have dropped.

falconbox [score hidden]

Yup, killed them all. Went for the city first as 9S because they were invincible as 2B, so I figured they had to be hacked. Then killed the golden tank. Then killed the little golden machine in the flooded city who would jump around with rocket boosters on his back.

Going back now after finishing E to get the remaining trophies, and I'm missing a Powerup S. Completed literally every other side quest in the game. I even have the chip which picks up items automatically, so I can't imagine somehow missing it.

Definitely didn't sell it. The only thing I've sold all game is Machine Cores.

I hate that items like this can be missable. At least have a vendor sell them after you finish the E ending.

GeoWilson [score hidden]

Don't know what to say other than it might have bugged. Sorry man.

falconbox [score hidden]

Yeah, no worries. Guess I'm buying that trophy.

Seems there's about a dozen posts across Reddit and GameFaqs that all have similar issues, so at least I know I'm not alone.

Or go to archive.org and find the link in the wayback machine!

falconbox [score hidden]

Assuming someone has archived it.

JayCroghan [score hidden]

Wut? Wayback machine automatically archives. I have a lot of websites that are on there and I didn't put them there.

falconbox [score hidden]

Not every day. Depends on how big the site is too.

Some I've looked up in the past only get archived once every 4-5 months. If I want to make sure something is there, I archive it myself on WayBack or Archive.is.

Damn.

Anyone only play one game (HZD) on this list?

falconbox 3 points

Destiny 2 and Horizon for me.

I own GTAV but didn't buy it this year. Only played the beta for Wildlands.

Ajegwu 28 points

God GTA V is still on the list. That game is like fifty years old now. I’m so psyched for RDR2.

falconbox 6 points

At least Minecraft is finally off the list.

I dare someone to tweet criticism at Plagge, O’Dwyer, Walker, Klepek, or Gies 600 times in a year, and watch how quickly they cry harassment.

You'd be blocked looooong before that. Colin very rarely blocks people (which actually might be why he's so fed up with social media, since he actually sees all the hate toward him).

Xbox is doing that well? Good for them. The more competition, the better.

Unfortunately, Xbox does not do well here in Europe. The Switch was hard to get for a long while, however.

PUBG came to Xbox One in December.

But yeah, Xbox One is probably at about 40 million units sold at this point.

linksis33 0 points

Probably closer to 30 million than 40 million.

falconbox 1 point

I think most estimates had them at about 30 million as of August.

I tried to account for the holidays and the release of the Xbox One X possibly giving a little boost, so I added another 10.

I'd venture between 35-40 million, especially if we saw 1.36 million in December.

Have you seen how much a Lego set costs? A Lego set that interacted with software like this and also had the software would be insanely more expensive than this.

A lot of lego sets cost this already or more.

falconbox 1 point

Most Lego sets are dirt cheap unless you're getting a set specifically designed for a Millennium Falcon or something.

A giant tub of regular Legos is like $20.

Not until the end of the game, when her entire relationship with 9S is recontextualized, and her actions snap into a new, tragic light.

falconbox 1 point

I think I'd still put A2 as a better character.

Not only do we learn about her history with the Pearl Harbor Descent, but she has a unique arch through the course of Route C that I really liked.

... most of whom don't care about video games, let alone eSports, as a whole. A lot of those users are also bots or businesses, they're not all live, actual human beings.

Most gamers who would care about eSports that I know don't use Facebook at all.

falconbox -6 points

They're expanding their base. Just like how many eSports companies are trying to get on ESPN.

The people who are invested in CSGO aren't going to stop watching, and they will probably attract a new audience that has never even heard of Twitch before.

I do, of course. Naming the individual routes as "playthroughs" can cause confusion. I prefer calling them routes or chapters.

falconbox 1 point

Damn, that's impressive.

I just beat the game (endings A-E) tonight. I really take my time with games like these. Took me about 75 hours just to beat A & B, and I finished ending E at about level 70.

Gotta go and get the endings I missed now. I missed about 5-10 endings, and I think 2 sidequests.

Shelbycobra66 1 point

Really? 2 playthroughs + DLC took me 80 hours in total.

My first run was 40 hours (no DLC) and that was already above average. I wasted a lot of time of too hard bosses. That ninja robot guy after a few transformations on the roof took me over an hour.

40 hours is already above average.

falconbox 1 point

That ninja robot guy after a few transformations on the roof took me over an hour.

Damn. Took me like 2 minutes on his last phase. But I was crazy overleveled. I don't think I died a single time throughout the whole game. I just liked to run around and cut down robots because I found the combat fun.

My save file maxed out at 99:59:59 before I even reached route C. (some of that was probably due to leaving the game on pause for extended amounts of time though, which is why I initially said about 75 hours)

Edit: actually, for the Ninja robot's LAST phase, I think I was 9S at the time and just hacked him twice to kill him.

It also helps that everyone finished BotW, which is far from true regarding P5.

The reasons for that are important too, though. Persona is an 100 hours long game and I really feel like you have to finish it to enjoy the sense of unity from your party and the world building.

Zelda, on the other hand, feels cohesive from the start. Whatever you choose to do or how long you feel like you have to wrap up is enough to make the experience feel complete.

I played both games for 100 hours and they were excellent. But for Zelda, those hours flew in effortessly throught a month, while Persona was a much heavier game that took me three months to finish.

Like the reviews (not from major outlets) I saw from people who critiqued Nier Automata after only getting ending A.
