    AmberLita's Terminator story is hilarious. I think I roped him up right away and left him for dead.

    Nothing story related, just side quest stuff. There’s a few legendary animals in the south, and I think a few fish. Pretty sure I thought you completed the fishing one due to the Legendary Catfish discussion. But I’ve been wrong before.

    I want to rant about Wasteland 3, but man I'm tired.

    Why is it that cRPGs get a free pass on the most tired, hackneyed story elements that would get absolutely skewered if they showed up any other medium? I mean the usual action movie trope garbage, the boilerplate sci-fi dystopias, the cheap gangster machismo, and lame attempts at "satire."

    How does a pro such as Brian Fargo, with ~30 years experience in the industry, lift major gameplay elements from X-Com but not understand what made those elements successful? (How they fuck does anyone play X-Com and not realize permanent character death and huge doses of RNG lent every mission some very heavy and immediate stakes?)

    How long before studios stop ripping off X-Com (and Dark Souls, for that matter) and actually, I dunno, do something interesting and creative?

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Rumors are the Series X will push 4k at 60fps and the Series S will do 1440p at 120+ FPS.

    Having spent the weekend pricing PC components, it's absolutely insane to me these machines will sell so cheaply. You could literally not build your own box with these specs at these price points.

    $300 for an absolutely killer GamePass machine? Yes please! Fuck yes!

    If that is true, that is INSANE. For comparison, my PC does 1440p and I MAX out at 60 FPS.

    I can't wait til you buy an $80 game and it is unplayable unless you also have the top tier subscription package.

    XBOX seems much more interested in pushing subscriptions than even the new consoles themselves. Half that article revealing the price points was about them heavily pushing subs.

    I'm being half sarcastic, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised at all if they start making the monthly sub a required component of playing the games that you also have to pay full retail for.

    This industry is fucked.

    Stadia tried this and failed spectacularly.

    It's more likely the PC/ console ecosystem will continue to balkanize, e.g.: everybody will have their own version of GamePass and their games will be exclusive to that platform. Sorta a combo of like what Sony and Epic already do.

    Anyway, GamePass is the primary reason I'm hyped on XBox. I've downloaded and played so many games I wouldn't otherwise given a chance. (Like, I never would have paid retail to try out Ori and the Blind Forest, Wasteland 3, or Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.)

    I've still got shit like Nier Automata, Plague Tale, and Hellblade waiting on me, with a dozen more titles sitting on my hard drive that I haven't had time to play. This was all included in the sub, no additional cost to me. Every month there's something new and interesting to try out. Can't beat that.

    I'm pretty sure I've spent more $$$ on Switch games than XBox games but I've had more use out of the XBox. In terms of hours played for dollars spent, GamePass has been incredible.

    PS: brb going to start an XBox fan blog

    Unless I read something different, they’re pushing financing the new XBOX’s, which is something they can do with current models as well, and the subscription service is built in. A CNN article showed that it was cheaper to finance the BOX then buy it outright and get the subscription service separate.

    So it's like a cell phone plan with the cost of the Xbox built in?

    Triple yuck.

    No, it's $25 a month for 24 months, which is actually cheaper than buying the console and GamePass separately. So Microsoft is giving you a 2 year, no interest loan and charging you less for the box and the service.

    Not a bad strategy during a pandemic and mass unemployment.

    I predict (a) Microsoft is unprepared for the level of interest in the Series S, and is (b) lying to themselves about how much they're about to cannibalize their own sales.

    They already do this with the current Xbox consoles. It's called the All-Access program. $25 a month for two years to own the console, and you get Gamepass for those 24 months as well. It's a good option for people who can't afford to splash on a big purchase like that, and you even save money in the long run. It's a good option all around, really.
    Giving up in 2020. Who cares.

    I'm just really not liking how the entire entertainment industry is turning into subscription based services.

    You'd rather pay $660 up front than $25 a month for a period of time? Have you bought a cell phone ever in the past 12 years? Because that's the same thing.

    Another reminder.

    (Pay particular attention to the moment when the player ducks and punches a dude in the nuts, lol. Forget shotguns this time around. This is my preferred playstyle and I fully plan to roleplay as "Johnny Nutpunch.")
