  1. Being in the first 50 doesn't mean much to me. So I really don't worry about people getting trophies with a time stamp before the official release. As for banning these people from the first achiever list, I couldn't care less either way. IMO, getting into the fastest 50 counts a lot more. Getting the game earlier doesn't give you an advantage there.
  2. No plat for me on this one because of multiplayer trophies (IMO, the MP content should be treated as a separate game with its own platinum), but I'm still in for the campaign.
  3. Assuming Biden is elected, I'm sure his attitude towards Fauci and other scientists will be better than Trump's. America could do way better. Trump needs to leave, so we're looking at Biden. In the debate, Trump said about C19 "People are learning to live with it". When I heard him say that, I felt so upset and could only think "How dare you". Trump has less empathy than a brick wall. Biden's reply to him was "People are learning to die with it". Over 222.000 people have been killed by this shit on Trump's watch... and a fall/winter surge is expected. I already hate winter and now there's another reason for me to hate this particular one. It's sad that the third parties haven't gained enough ground. I think the SCOTUS system is broken. It should've been set up for equal representation for Democrats, Republicans, and Others (3rd party and independents). If this damn Amy Coney Barrett gets confirmed to the SCOTUS, I say let Biden "pack" the court with one more Democrat. IMO, Trump's trying to foist Amy Coney Barrett upon the nation looks bad to me. I get the feeling he's thinking "WOO HOO! RBG is gone... let's get this done!". What a vulture. How dare he. I think he should have deferred as a sign of respect for Ruth. He doesn't care for anyone but himself. Movie theaters are reopening, but would I go to one at this time? Just NO. Not even if they offered free admission and guaranteed that the seating would be 6 feet apart. Not even if they promised it was disinfected nightly.

  5. That $200 for a 1990 Neo-Geo game would be $398 in today's money. The console was $600 ($1195 in 2020). SNK's selling point was playing the arcade game at home with no audio/visual compromises. They followed it with a CD system which got the game prices down to $60... but the loading times are hellacious. And in some cases, the CD versions of Neo games aren't perfect. On NGCD, Art of Fighting 3 has smaller character sprites and Last Blade loses some animation frames. NG home carts have insanely appreciated in value. NG-DEV's Razion was a bit over $500 when I bought it a few years ago... and now I've seen someone reselling it for over $2000. I'd like to see NG-DEV bring this out on PSN on Vita and PS4 like they did with Fast Striker. A lot of SNK's own carts for the home console have either held their value or are now worth thousands. Blazing Star on home cart is $5000 (and $8 on PSN).
  6. OK, this 2nd Biden-Trump debate was actually more civil. Muting the mikes during the 2 minute response periods sure looks like it helped. Kristen Welker was a good moderator, also. Though Trump still got a bit petulant at times, he didn't really interrupt like we had seen in the 1st one.


    Overall I would say Round 2 goes to Biden. He was more frank about COVID-19 than Trump was, expressing a need for rapid testing, contact tracing, physical dividers, and social distancing. And Trump's "we're learning to live with it" statement infuriated me. Biden's countering with "people are learning to die with it" hit the nail on the head. There have been over 222.000 people killed by this shit already. Enough is enough.


    Trump called himself the least racist person in the room... that's malarkey. Biden takes climate change and clean energy more seriously. Biden also said that any foreign power who tries to tamper with the election will pay a price. When accused of corruption, Biden told Trump, "Release your tax returns or don't talk about corruption".


    One statement from Biden during the C19 discussion especially resonates with me. "I don't view this as he does, as red states or blue states," he said. "We're the United States."

  8. Scintillatron 4096. This is also available on PS4 and the trophy lists (identical in each version, with a platinum) are counted separately. It's less twitch and not exactly mindless, but still fun. Instead of just tearing through enemies, you're supposed to chain ones of the same color until they're wiped out. If you take too long on a level, a Hurry Up enemy will appear. There are no online requirements for any trophies.

  10. Fall is here... and I partially dislike it. No more 92+ degree days. I know some of you think that's good. But I'd take the 90s over the 36 degree morning lows I've seen lately. If the temperature falls below 65 F, I start getting a bit disgusted with it. At least I'll get a few more days with 70s. The thing I hate most about fall? It gets dark earlier, and even more so when the "fall back" time change kicks in. I don't care for the shorter days. It's opening the door for winter (and IMO winter can fuck off).
  11. The scientists need to be listened to. And what's this deal with Trump slamming Fauci, calling him a "disaster" and an "idiot" for being truthful? If this pandemic happened under Obama's or Hillary Clinton's watch, I'm sure that it would've been handled better. There would not have been 210000+ deaths. I've never given Trump any benefit of the doubt... not even since That Day in 2016. And my suspicions have been proven right. He went out on a limb to praise a witch doctor. https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/18/us/anika-chebrolu-covid-treatment-award-scn-trnd/index.html Anika Chebrolu, 14, has won a $25000 prize in the 3M Young Scientist Challenge for a discovery that could lead to a C19 cure. Her invention uses in-silico methodology to discover a molecule that can bind to the SARS-COV2's spike. She had studied about the 1918 flu pandemic and that inspired her to find potential cures to viruses. Now she's interested in working with scientists and researchers to hopefully get a cure out there.
  12. The presidential debate commission will mute the mikes during the candidates' 2-minute initial responses in the 22 October debate. Amen and hallelujah to that. It needs to be done. You remember how that last Trump-Biden debate went? What a train wreck. At least this one should stay more orderly.

      Not necessarily. They can still scream. :P

      It's a good first step into trying to maintain order for the debate (the first debate was a monumental shit show and a national embarrassment to our country). However, muting a microphone on his podium won't stop Donald Trump from shouting over Joe Biden from across the stage as Biden tries to detail his vision for the United States.

      You probably called it correctly. Trump will likely raise his voice to compensate for being de-miked. It wouldn't surprise me. I trust Joe to be on his best behavior, but I have a bad feeling Donald will be a naughty boy again. At least this debate shouldn't be a total CF like the last one. It would be easier for a miked moderator to call for Trump to stop talking.


      The moderator this time is NBC's Kristen Welker. Hopefully she'll be more firm, unlike Susan Page. Surprisingly, Page was against the idea of a mute button... even though she had to tell Pence to stop talking 41 times, and Harris 13 times in the VP debate. I don't want Susan Page moderating another debate of this sort. She was pretty weak as a moderator.


      Looking back to the Trump town hall, Trump sure got trumped by Savannah Guthrie. "I don't get that! You're the president... you're not like someone's crazy uncle who can retweet whatever." ( 0:30 ). I didn't watch Trump's town hall (I watched Biden's instead). When I saw this on YT, I loved it. 👍


  13. Doom 3 (PS4) Evil Collector Collect every PDA in the RoE campaign If you've got them all, it comes up right as you take Patrick Hook's one. A bronze trophy seems a little cheap for having to find all 21 PDAs. I think this should really be a silver.
  14. Am I going to buy an Xbox for the next Doom or Wolfenstein? NO. I'll go strictly PC on these games if they turn out to be Xbox exclusive. Hopefully they'll release the PC versions on Steam and not use that UWP garbage.
