  1. Damn those ninjas cutting onions
  2. Yeah, Widowmaker has a leg up against Hanzo because she's a hitscan character while Hanzo's arrow actually has to travel and at an arc which makes matter more difficult. I just played a couple of DM or TDM but last time I did, a lot of people were playing Doomfist or Pharah. I don't know what the current meta is though.
  3. Tomato (not the fruit) did a lot of work sa mga English translations ng mga SNES games back then. I don't know what the guy is doing in recent years but he's a legend in the scene. Speaking of SNES, aside maybe from Megaman X and a handful other sidescrollers/platformers, I played a lot of damn good RPGs. Beside the PS1, it was home to a lot of solid JRPGs that stood the test of time. If anything, pixel art holds up way better than polygon - even today's cutting edge AAA games would look very dated in a few years. Vanilla Crysis while generally looking great even after a decade have a lot of low-res texture that kinda dates it. Chrono Trigger still looks the way I remember it. Even the mechanics, while a bit clunky by today's standards, is still fun. I always like the slower paced, turn-based gameplay of that era. 1. Chrono Trigger - The PS1 version was a shoddy port. There were slowdowns when there weren't any in the more inferior SNES machine. Still one of the best RPGs out there. 2. First two Breath of Fire games - Old school RPG goodness. Capcom's answer to Square's FF series. 3. Secret of Mana 4. Treasure Hunter G - One, if not the last, 16-bit RPG published by SquareSoft (former name of Square Enix before the merger) before it blew up into the mainstream consciousness thanks to Final Fantasy VII. There's no official English translation of the game but thanks to the emulation scene, I was able to play it. The game's a mix of 2D pixel and pseudo-3D. 5. Final Fantasy VI - Final Fantasy III in the US. The story's very memorable. It's probably way up there along with IX in the story department. Kefka's a douche nozzle. Even after all these years, I maintain that he should choke on a bag of dicks. 6. Secret of Evermore 7. EarthBound (Mother 2 in Japan) - On a related note, Nintendo hates all of you that's why Mother 3 still does not have a western release after 11 years. There's an unofficial translation, I don't know how complete and stable that is though. 8. Bahamut Lagoon - Another translated by fans if I'm not mistaken. Yeah, I vaguely remember downloading additional files so I can play it in English. 9. Terranigma
  4. Humble Bundle is giving away Psychonauts for free (activates on Steam). One of the best action/adventure/platformer of the Xbox/PS2 era. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/psychonauts About the game: Psychonauts is a platform video game developed by Double Fine Productions. The game was initially published by Majesco Entertainment in 2005 and 2006 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox and PlayStation 2; Budcat Creations helped in the PlayStation 2 port. In 2011, Double Fine acquired the rights for the title, allowing the company to republish the title with updates for modern gaming systems and creating OS X and Linux ports. Psychonauts follows the player-character Raz (voiced by Richard Horvitz), a young boy gifted with psychic abilities who runs away from the circus to try to sneak into a summer camp for those with similar powers to become a "Psychonaut", a spy with psychic abilities. He finds that there is a sinister plot occurring at the camp that only he can stop. The game is centered on exploring the strange and imaginative minds of various characters that Raz enters as a Psychonaut-in-training/"Psycadet" to help them overcome their fears or memories of their past, so as to gain their help and progress in the game. Raz gains use of several psychic abilities during the game that are used for both attacking foes and solving puzzles.
  5. I believe there's a support group for that kind of thing
  6. Yeah the learning curve for Genji is really high but it would be a really amazing feat if you do get good with him. I only use him in Quick plays just for the lulz. I'd probably get bodied really hard in Ranked. This might sound stupid but I just learned recently that you can play against AI as sort of a PVE and it's actually fun and the AI are no slouch in the hardest difficulty. It's not perfect and can be exploited but it's no walk in the park either.
  7. It was great. It's a weird mix of Stand By Me and Stranger Things. I've read critics saying... (WARNING: MILD SPOILER) ...the CG at the end wasn't good or it was jarring but I thought it was fine. It's not mind-blowing, just standard fare CG at this point and it didn't detract from how good the movie was. Can't believe they actually showed Georgie getting his arm ripped off (Georgie dying isn't a spoiler as much as the lead up to it is almost in all the trailers. It'd be like saying Bruce Wayne's parents getting killed is a spoiler). Most of the time, there's an unwritten rule in films that you can't show violence against children. It's usually implied. ================================= On an unrelated note, first pictures of David Harbour (Sheriff Hopper in Stranger Things) as Hellboy have surfaced: Ron Perlman (Beauty and the Beast, Sons of Anarchy, Blade 2) played Hellboy in the first two films.
  8. Warped is part of the Remaster. All first three mainline Crash Bandicoot games were included. Knowing Activision and how much money it has made so far, I would be very surprised if they haven't started developing the next batch of CB remasters.
  9. Some of these I think have ended already but that's why the internet is an awesome place *wink* *wink* - Teen Titans GO! - DC Superhero Girls - This show is made specifically to empower little girls. - Power Puff Girls (?) - I think it skews more toward an older audience but I don't remember seeing anything that could be objectionable for a 6-year old. - The Super Hero Squad Show - Batman Brave and the Bold - Another that might be for the 9 - 11 year-old crowd but the violence is pretty mild I think and the stories are simple.
  10. @Haberdash Not the biggest fan of both unfortunately. I like their music no two ways about it but I'm more of a greatest hits kind of guy pagdating sa Aerosmith and RHCP. I do not know their discography extensively. Yeah that's why most sa list ko is relatively recent pera medyo hindi naman halata eda ko If I'm being completely honest, my list would probably include a lot of of 90s band like Pearl Jam (although I heard medyo nag-iba na ang boses ni Pareng Eddie) or single acts like Fiona Apple. One person I forgot but would love to see live is Johnny Cash. He was way before my (our?) time but his songs are timeless.
  11. A second season has already been green-lit (green-lighted?). It was announced back in San Diego Comic Con a few months ago if I remember correctly.
  12. - The Cure - The Black Album-era Metallica - My Chemical Romance - Panic! At the Disco - Lady Gaga (no kidding) - Minutes to Midnight-era Linkin Park - Gin Blossoms
  13. Then you will probably pop a vein as the first trailer for Fifty Shades Freed has just been released https://youtu.be/tBLzd2NNmAM Enjoy!
  14. How economical a place is for the regular joe was probably a consideration in coming up with the list.
