I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

So E3 started but its already off to a bad start with Sony being a no show and I have flat given up on Microsoft

I don't think Id buy an XB1 for even 99 bucks preloaded with Halo Infinite at this point 

EA already did there thing and the Star Wars game looks... BORING AS HELL...

 

So lets hope there some bright spots in the coming days

Given who started this thread, I wasn't sure if the thread title was intentional or not. :p

 

Frankly, I'm waiting on Nintendo.  The past 5 years have really soured me on mainstream AAA gaming, with the egregious load times, money pinching, and misleading functionality (the PS4 is certainly NOT plug and play).  But Nintendo's streamlined experience has really helped me get back into semi-regular game playing, even in spite of the peculiarities on Nintendo's end and sometimes questionable releases.

I thought the Star Wars game looked just fine.

 

Of course it'd be a thousand times better if it was Force Unleashed 3, but it looks like a decent 3rd person platformer so far.

Well then I guess you don't want Sega Ages, The Genesis collection, the Castlevania collection... etc. etc.

 

Those collections are why the VC doesn't exist anymore.

Which is why it looks like a decent game to me.

 

However it's not Starkiller, and the reigned in force powers keep it from being amazing.

 

Pretty much, the force powers in both Unleashed games are what I wish the force WAS like. It looked awesome, it played awesome. (Okay to be fair both games had flaws, but I loved em anyway) And I really liked Starkiller.

 

This new game though, is probably the best I could hope for now a days.

Wait why would Sega Ages or the collections not exists? you can have both One would be the packaged deal with extras and one would be the vanilla version or just skip those few collections and pump out whats not covered in them in a true Virtual console put a 7.99-9.99 price tag on NES,SNES, N64 games and the Switch would just print money

It's my experience that those in high corporate/upper management have no clue how it actually works, yet feel they have it all figured out.

 

If I had to guess, their reasoning is: "If all these games were on the virtual console, no one would have any need of buying these expensive collection systems we're bringing out! Therefore we must make sure the collection is the only way to get said games! Then people will HAVE to buy! We're so smart!"

Actually, it's probably just a means to monetize the titles they already own, but aren't otherwise selling. They get to justify both the collection AND a higher price per title, as well as make at least a little coin of IP's that wouldn't move on their own.

 

Edit: The thing I actually came in here to say: I lost interest in the spectacle of e3 years ago. It's a neat premise, but it's lackluster these days. Big friggen shows over rehashed crap or absolutely nothing isn't worth the attention. I am interested in the bethesda showcase at 5.30, but I'm not even going to watch it, I'm going to read the abbreviated tomorrow.

Basicly this.. These companies go "Why put this on a VC When we can sell these ourselves."

I mean really, is buying a Sega Ages game any real different then a sega vc game?

That... was a show? I guess?

 

Sat through the whole thing just to find out that Halo is the only game I'm remotely interested in and it won't be out until next year and only on a new console.

 

Kind of liked the Lego Forza gameplay, but racing games aren't my thing, so, eh.

Ya, I can't say there was anything grabbing again this year. I want to see the Halo story continue but I still haven't played 5 yet. And nice announcing a new console with lots of hype and not much else to show. I mean slated for Holiday 2020 and no floor model to show off. Does it have a disc drive? Are any other games besides Halo coming? And does anyone think it's going to still be named Project Scarlett at launch?

There wasn't a lot there for me. Star Wars is cool and my wife loved the Force Unleashed games so we'll likely be getting that. A lot of the smaller indie type games looked interesting/fun/pretty. I'll likely be up for the full Lego Star Wars saga.

Don't care about Halo and there's not enough about Elden Ring to care or not yet.

I'm considering whether the Ultimate game pass would be worth it at today's $1 price. Leaning towards probably for some folks but likely not for me given how rarely I get to play nowadays.

-ZacWilliam, my son was disappointed because he hoped to see something Cuphead related, but was interested in Psychonauts 2
