  1. Rojo_The_Great liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Is Bethesda Making a Fallout MMO?   
    On the one hand, I think ESO has utterly failed at trying to compete at the same level of WoW or GW2. On the other hand, they might think that Fallout is niche enough that it could make money as an MMO without interrupting WoW's market share. 
    The fact is that there is no "market share" for MMOs. Most players are loyal to the games they play or the companies that make them. Fallout Online will have to make its money on its own merits, not on whatever an Excel spreadsheet says.
    That said, the relatively low effort of ESO seems to suggest that FOO will be a hot mess on release. I also kind of wonder how the game will play. Will it be action-heavy like Destiny, or will it try going back to its point-and-click roots? Who knows.

    There doesn't seem to be a post anywhere to talk about current events in Overwatch, so I wanted to make one to let people be aware if there was any gameplay changes or events incoming.
     
    For the month of December there's a new event and a few auxiliary updates:
    December 12, 2017
     
    New Seasonal Event: Winter Wonderland 2017
    From now until January 1, a new Brawl is available called Mei's Yeti Hunt. I wonder if this might be a light jab at Valve's TF2 update video...
    The last year's brawl, Mei's Snowball Offensive, is also available to play. And both have the chance of winning holiday-themed lootboxes for Christmas-y cosmetics.
    http://overwatch.wikia.com/wiki/Winter_Wonderland A somewhat complete list of the various emotes, victory screens, and skins can be seen here.
     
    Player Warning Updates
    It seems like there was an issue regarding the player warning system. (If I recall, receiving a ton of warnings would make it essentially impossible to find a match in matchmaking, this was resolved a long time ago though)
    The game now makes it clear when you have received a warning, and on the opposite end when your warnings have been resolved.
    I would assume they're fine-tuning this system to make it less abusable.
     
    Custom Match Ultimates
    There's new options when creating a custom match, such as the ability to start off with an Ultimate and being able to adjust the duration of your Ultimate charges. You can set it so the Ultimates can disappear if left unused for some amount of time, or just make the whole match a mess of everyone popping their Ultimates.
     
    Bug Squish
    There was a bug in Elimination Mode that caused you to spawn as a random hero instead of one you highlighted, that's been fixed.
    Several graphical glitches have been fixed regarding character models or abilities interacting with the environment.
    Gameplay wise, Torb's hammer wouldn't interact and upgrade his turret if used from certain angles, same with Road Hog's hook. Both have been fixed. Mercy's Resurrection cooldown now resets after activating Valkyrie as well.
     
    That's about it for the most recent patch. I'll also use this page to update information on the PTR when it becomes available.
    If you want the more detailed patch rundown, check it out here.

  4. Legolas_Katarn liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Other Joe do some reviews?   
    Well Joe also probably does most of the writing for his reviews, and plays the games extensively so he can break them down on a critical level and show parts that deserve attention either for praising or calling out flaws.

    I think the first problem comes from who will write for Other Joe. Writing for yourself is easy in the sense that you know how you would say things, and you can work around what comes naturally to you, but writing for someone else has to keep their style of performance and manner of speaking in mind. You wanna have it so it's fairly organic, like it's actually OJ saying what's on his mind and not just being fed lines from AJ.

    I'm sure OJ could write for himself, but I don't think he's used to the type of production that AJ goes through in making his reviews. He mostly just shows up for a joke or sits in on streams and chats with the AJSA or takes a turn playing a game. He's a colorful commentator, but I dunno how he'd do as the main focus.

    Nothing against Other Joe of course, he's a really cool guy and I think he should be getting his share of facetime with Joe. But getting him his own show seems like more work instead of less work on Joe. But that's just my opinion anyway.

    I'm not sure it was ever active? I did a quick search on WoWhead for Delrith's character.

    Apparently he's still at level 90.

    And that character search was up to date, cause I saw my character's recent gear when I searched for my toons.

    Bummer, I was hoping there was a guild.
  7. Velocirapter liked a post in a topic by Aquila in PS3 Heist Members for Hire   
    This is a call out to the entire crew of the The AJS Army PS3, you’re ready. “For what?” you may ask. Simple, you’re ready for opportunities. To take scores that can pay you. This is no simple drug run for Gerald, or a hit from Martin. No these scores are bigger than those clowns. A score that’ll take more than some lone wolf. You’re gonna need a team, and where better to look but right here. Now it’s up to you, I say you’re ready to take a score. Prove me right.
     
     
     

     
    This thread is to help organize our crew members for hire. I know Los Santos can be a bit daunting to the normal lower ranks. You might feel a bit shy to speak up or to take a job. It’s okay we’ve all been there. We've all been that person at the bar looking at another person. Can’t build up the courage to even say “Hello." Even if you do, you just lock up and sound so weird. Than they just laugh at how dumb you look. Where was I? Oh yes crew members for hire. Here are a few things below you should probably list so people can get an idea of what kinda crew member you’re.
     
     
    Heist Member For Hire Resume
     
    PSN ID Mastermind or Grunt Your best talent (driving, shooting, flying, etc.) Why you think you’d be a benefit on the score.
     
    See how easy was that, you got your crew all ready. You all look pretty confident, but don’t get too cocky kids. Just because you guys think you can shoot a gun pretty well, doesn’t make you special. I’m told kids on some game called 'Righteous Slaughter 7' can do it way better than you, and f#ck your mom while doing so. But, what does make you special? Respect and teamwork.
     
     
     

     
    Once you've done all this, and you score your big score. Celebrate, enjoy and bask in the glory of Victory. Hell why not go spend it up, make it rain or so they say. Why not share your winnings and brag how much of a “Badass!” you guys are. So that the Cops of Los Santos can see it later on the internet, come knocking on your door, and arrest you. Because you were that stupid to post it on 'Life Invader'… Nonetheless that’s celebrating am I right!

  9. Ysnar liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Phantom Pain to have microtransactions   
    Yeah the Konami self-destruction continues.

    I'm hoping Kojima still manages to get funded to do his other games like ZOE and Policenauts. Other than Phantom Pain, I've pretty much wrote MGS as a loss.

    And I agree with Alpha Omega, we shouldn't support a publisher who makes such boneheaded decisions. Like cancelling Silent Hills. Goddamn.
  10. Ysnar liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Buying the deluxe edition of Battlefront gives you more damage with grenades and torpedoes   
    I haven't considered pre-ordering games for a long time. It seems like a good idea at first, but then when the game comes out you tend to get a bit more buyer's remorse... or the pre-order bonuses don't really seem all they're cracked up to be.

    Although in this case it seems like a BS reason to push pre-order sales is by giving people who shell out money on day one an extra advantage on everyone. That's some tricky shit, man.

    The gaming industry just seems to keep finding ways to manipulate consumers into blindly giving them money.

    Just remember guys, whether good or bad, don't overblow the response. If, if, he's trolling Joe and the AJSA, just let it die. The worst thing you can do is give it attention. It makes yourself look bad, and it makes Joe look bad.

  16. Kamaro liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Morality and Personality: Can Both Co-Exist in a Video Game?   
    I think it's the problem with the illusion of choice or morality in a video game. Each response is scripted, and usually doesn't account for your previous decisions. So you might save puppies from a fire in one line, and then you're a mustache-twirling, baby-eating, reporter-punching psychopath in another line. 

    You can't have an "organic" character unless you manufacture the character to have a set personality.

    A bit ironic, isn't it? The only illusion of personality comes from conforming totally to the direction and writing of the game's story. And by choosing freedom, you're trapping yourself in one extreme vs. the other extreme with no middleground.
  17. thedukeofzill liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Request for Angry Joe.   
    I think Joe also worked with Spoony on a few videos for the new game made by Richard Garriott, but yeah basically Doug Walker is the one who organized and funded all of those collaborations. The money you guys donate goes into the show's production costs such as Joe's various cameras/mics/lights, games, tickets to gaming conventions, travelling to visit developers, etc. So producing and distributing a movie seems like it'd require a separate budget from the show he makes day-to-day.
  18. AngryPanda liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Would you eat this?!!   
    Well hey, honesty in advertisement. That's worth something in my book.

    Besides, a bacon cheese dog doesn't really sound all that uncommon. It's basically a leveled-up chili cheese dog. In fact I think chili cheese dogs have bacon bits in 'em.

    And it can't possibly be as deadly to you as this is:



    Although it doesn't look as "appetizing" either... generally speaking.
  19. Puntosmx liked a post in a topic by Aquila in There's a way to instantly win FNAF 1 & 2 without tearing your hair out.   
    Long answer: Not exactly

    The first game has basically a flawless strategy, although it still requires a certain rhythm to it. The first thing you do is close one of the doors (I thiink it might be the right door?) Basically Freddie and Chica only ever come from the right, and Bonnie and Foxy only ever come from the left. You immediately close Freddie's door and you eliminate basically the biggest threat. Then you check on Foxy to stop him from moving. Then you check the open left door for Bonnie, then quickly check the right door for Chica and close it again. Then you just keep cycling through these actions until about 5am. At which time you'll probably lose power, but with luck you'll have just enough time to survive til 6am.

    The second game requires a more frantic rhythm involving balancing winding the music box, spamming the flashlight down the hall, and PRECISION TIMING with the Freddie mask. If the office is compromised and you're a millisecond off with the mask, you're basically dead.

    Short answer: Watch Markiplier.
  20. baronrouker liked a post in a topic by Aquila in Is Minecraft worth playing?   
    It's a type of game where you really have to sort of make your own fun. There's no real structure to it. Once you've done the first few tasks you're free to pretty much do whatever the hell you want and try to advance your options in whatever way you want.

    Creative mode is if you're a fan of Legos and you like to build things without limits. Survival is more of a challenge to find things for your character to live, and then thrive in the world.

    The vanilla is cool enough, but they have lots of mods for the game to add some more depth and aesthetic to it. Such as in-depth RPG elements or whole structured game modes.

    Basically if you just wanna drop $20 and play a game you're not willing to mod or to explore/sandbox in it, this game's probably not for you. You will get what you put into it.
  21. Winnum liked a post in a topic by Aquila in So, the reaction some people have to same sex romance in DA: Inquisition...   
    You gotta love the logic behind people who want to find reasons to hate on people or games.

    "I found out I could have sex with a man. Therefore this game is gay.
    ...I'm not gay for choosing to have sex with a man, this game is gay for allowing me to have sex with a man."

    Though truth be told I'm one of those people who likes to do everything that RPGs and sandboxes allow me to do, but claiming that this freedom ruins narrative is a bit silly to me?

    "You dared me to kiss this guy in truth or dare, you must be gay.
    What do you mean I could've said 'no'? It was a DARE. I'm not gay for doing it."

    I dunno, I should stop rambling.

    As for a community, it's non-existent because the PC game doesn't exist yet. We already have a PS3 and 360 community, sort of. You could try getting people on Steam who'd like to play it, or see if anyone would rather play it on PC than on the console.

    "Are we going to have one" is sort of the wrong question to ask. If lots of people play it, we'll naturally have one. Otherwise it's up to the AJSA to organize and decide on games that they want to play. Ask not what your AJSA can do for you, but what you can do for the AJSA.
