  1. Chaos Theory Finish Episode 3: Chaos Theory I'm hella enjoying the highly addictive story of this game.
  2. Welcome to the forums! You sound a lot like me, except instead of baseball and working out, I would say "more Netflix" and "yet more Netflix".
  3. Preacher (Season 2, episodes 1 and 2). If you guys like some weird shit, do yourself a favor and watch this. Season 1 was ok-ish for me, but the beginning of season 2 is absolutely great.
  4. Be very welcome to these delightful message boards.
  5. Grand Theft Auto V
  6. Horizon Zero Dawn Playing through the story of this game is more than a pleasure - it's a privilege. What a masterpiece, what a protagonist.
  7. Got the Shield-Weaver outfit Recovered an ancient technology and put it to use.
  8. I'd say once is enough as well. If they did it with Max Payne 3 I'd definitely get that one though, despite beating it a handful of times already.
  9. There is repetitive, but then there is repetitive. I get that some games may have parts like that, but Mafia III is all repetitive. The beginning of the game is good, but then you fall into this structure of "go to an area, do these series of tasks, go after the boss - then go to another area and repeat". That's all the game is, really... I think the gameplay is fine, shootouts are cool, but my interest only declined the more I played. The story never engaged me that much and there was nothing to the city at all other than the missions as far as I can remember. I don't know, GTA V feels so much more full of "life" in comparison, it's not even funny. The soundtrack is great, though. All in all I wish I waited and got it cheaper - I did get it on Day 1. It's an ok game, but for me others are leagues better.
  10. Early on, when I had little experience with the game, I charged with Reinhardt and fell out of the map a couple of times. I remember this happening in Volskaya... on defense, about to lose the match. I didn't realise you could fall and the worst part, I didn't even drag anyone with me. The stupidest thing I've ever seen in a game though is a Symmetra player teleporting us to......... the front of our spawn point. (I guess it was a troll)
  11. Saved Meridian from its foe Helped Erend investigate Ersa's fate, and foiled a plot against Meridian.
  12. PS1: Tomb Raider II PS2: Grand Theft Auto III PS3: LittleBigPlanet / Fallout 3 / Grand Theft Auto IV PSP: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories PS4: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain / Batman: Arkham Knight Xbox: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory Xbox 360: Gears of War 3 Nintendo GameCube: Pokemon Colosseum Nintendo DS: Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt (a frickin' demo, lol) / Nintendogs Nintendo Wii: Wii Sports Nintendo Switch: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Bold are consoles I still own. Gray are games that came bundled (I normally buy just the console and pick the game, only remember the PS3 and DS being bundled). Tomb Raider II is my first memory of ever playing a game (I sucked at it, though)
  13. Is Waffles a bad rating? I chose Waffles, but it's more like a C in my head. I don't think E3 itself was bad, because the lineup was actually rather good... except it wasn't new. I told a friend it felt more like a summary of last year, with some added bonuses (like a new AC, Beyond Good and Evil, Monster Hunter...) One thing I do believe is that the Microsoft conference sucked ass compared to anything else. Ubisoft and Nintendo were probably the best, and then Sony was fine (it felt really short though). It was like E3 2016 lite
  14. I agree with a lot of what was said by the OP. Spoilers galore ahead! Be careful. I binge watched the whole show around two years ago and overall it was a great experience, though there is a pretty obvious decline in quality from Season 3 onwards. As far as I understand, Season 3 got hit by the 2007-08 WGA strike, which sucks because the starting point was actually cool (I mean, it starts getting a bit far fetched that all of them happen to be in this other prison, including Mahone and Bellick... but still, this is a show called Prison Break). But yeah, that season sort of came and went... and then it feels like Season 4 was left to deal with the resulting chaos, and it was a bit weird compared to the masterpieces that were 1 and 2. Still enjoyable overall and I liked my time spent with the show (including The Final Break). Only thing I really disapproved of was the last scene of the finale, which was all of a sudden and... unnecessary? Then came Season 5, and after watching it, Seasons 3 and 4 are kinda better when compared, lol. It had a really strong start and it seemed like a media return that was bound to success... but then the storyline started to falter, and it all went downhill very fast. There are too many silly decisions in the writing and it really requires you to turn your brain off for a moment, otherwise you won't enjoy it. I wish they made it more about the prison somehow, but it evolved into this game of cat and mouse with a villain that was completely underwhelming and had dumb motivations. Things like Sucre showing up out of nowhere on his freighter... Michael being pretty much a God that knows everything (greatly exaggerated compared to past seasons) and then there's the whole story of T-Bag... no reason for that prosthetic hand at all, and he has a son who was half the world away, yet Michael found him... I don't know, it just didn't cut it for me. Overall, I'm still OK with the Prison Break run, and the main reason for this is how incredibly good Seasons 1 and 2 were. I like the end scene, and despite my issues with the season, it fixes the problem I had with how it had ended before this return - giving it a better ending after all they went through. It was good to see the characters again, but the storyline felt more like fan fiction at times. I felt this way when I watched Batman v Superman. Yes, I liked it - but walked out of the cinema to a massive amount of people that hated it (I didn't see anything critic-related before going). It felt weird, especially because I think there was a lot of "bandwagon" hate and I feel like this is happening a lot, especially with the bigger blockbusters (not meaning to disrespect people that actually didn't enjoy it for actual reasons, but I think it can't be denied that people jump on the hate/love train lately, as if there is this huge agreement to like or dislike something). Honestly, voicing your views on media should never lead to an argument. If anything, it could lead to some discussions that make us all open minded - I swear I've seen negative reviews of BvS with points I agreed with, that made me think "actually, yeah, that's a good point". And I've seen a lot of good comments about Prison Break Season 5 as well. It makes me sick that on social media these days, if you like/dislike something, someone will likely fight you for it - but it's up to us to avoid that staying genuine and civilised, lol.
