    If you like open world games, Days Gone is a great one. It's Sons Of Anarchy meets Walking Dead plot wise, but a bit less cynical and unpleasant than either of those. The plot is genuinely good, though it takes a long time to get anywhere, and the power curve from more than two zombies meaning certain death to taking on hordes is very satisfying. I also really love how when you have to take out a human camp, they are made up of a specific, realistic number of enemies, who don't respawn and summon reinforcements. Plus, if you're smart or lucky you can sic zombies on them and pick the bones when they're done.

    After reading a bit more about Days Gone, it has definitely gone on my must buy list. Thanks!

    Witcher 3? You don't have to craft, you can get by with just buying better swords as you progress through the game. And if you're decent at dodging, you can even finish the game with the default armor.

    I think I will give Witcher 3 a try. Thanks.

    Well, I guess it depends on what level of one classify's as crafting.  It's pretty hard to escape in the "use materials to upgrade".  Even in God of War.

    I'm not a fan of "Our settlement needs this, and this and this and this". I'm okay with  having to forage for materials to upgrade weapons and whatnot, I just don't want to build whole villages. I'm not Jimmy Carter.

    What system?  I just finished Ghosts of Tsushima: Director's Cut and it is my favorite open world game ever.  It is basically Red Dead Redemption in Feudal Japan with a better more concise story.  It's also incredibly pretty to look at.  

     

    I have a PS4, Xbox One, Switch, 3DS, and a PC that doesn't balk at most games. Ghosts of Tsushima is a game that interests me, but I game on a budget and it hasn't dropped in price enough to warrant my buying it. I do definitely want to check it out though.

    If you liked the Sandbox stuff from GTA and Sleeping Dogs and liked Tomb Raider, the other 2 games in the series are also good.  If you liked RE4, then I would go with RE7 and Village.

    I haven't tried Village. I was fairly deep into RE7 and enjoying it until I hit a no ammo hiccup while battling the mother. I haven't revisited or restarted it. I agree on the other two Tomb Raider games. I especially liked Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

    I see that you have played Yakuza 0.  Have you tried any of the Judgment titles designed by the folks that made the Yakuza franchise?  It also has an outcast detective character similar to the protagonist in Sleeping Dogs and it is also semi-sandbox like most of the games on your list.

    I played through a bit of Judgement and liked it; but then it went off of PS Now, so I haven't had the chance to finish it.

  7. Here are the last 10 games I have completed. 

    Fallout 4, GTA 5, Sleeping Dogs, Tomb Raider, RDR2, Resident Evil 4, Yakuza 0, Those Who Remain, Evil Within, Evil Within 2. 

    I do have a couple caveats. I don't like co-op games ("I'm a rebel Dottie, a loner") and I don't like crafting or settlement building if it is a major component of the game. 

    I welcome any recommendations based upon this list and my crotchety caveats.

  8. There are certainly flashier teams, perhaps more physical teams; but I will knife fight* anyone who says that FTR is not the best team in the world, at the moment. (*Plastic knives taped to the end of 10 foot poles...I don't know where some of you have been).

  9. Rabid watcher of BTE...probably an apologist for a lot of the stuff on there that gets shit on. Having said that, the Nick Jackson answers unknown callers skit is easily one of the worst things I have ever had the misfortune to lay eyes on. It is not funny in the slightest. I have been wrong before, but I get an asshole vibe from Nick that I don't get from Matt. The last few minutes of the latest episode were perfection, though.

  10. Awesome PPV! My top 3 matches were MJF/Darby, Punk/Kingston, and Hangman/Omega, though every match had at least something compelling or entertaining about it. 

    I'm not stoked about the Jay Lethal signing, but if he is being brought in to help train younger wrestlers in every aspect of pro wrestling except tight finishers, I'm good with it. 

    I'm convinced that Tony (Schiavone) and JR have legitimate beef. Hopefully it doesn't come to an ugly head, because I know who does more for the company and who would be out of a job Sooner (see what I did there) than later.

    Takeaway here for the ppl in power listening... beats over butt rock.  

    And Coach Tony can we get ‘Anti-Matter’ by King Geedorah (aka MF DOOM) for young Lee’s TAIGASTYLE entrance? 

     

    Great song...little heavy on some words that might not be conducive entertainment for all ages, though.

    So, it is he said, they said. Who to believe? If Keith Lee was being disingenuous, he had to know it would come to light; but by the same token, why was it notable enough for WWE to respond? They have been accused of much worse explicitly and said nothing, but Keith Lee simply says that he paid his own medical bills and suddenly WWE is all "Hold on hoss!"

  13. If this has been covered, apologies. Does AEW require its wrestlers to be vaccinated or simply to test negative? I think the answer to this question might play a factor in which wrestlers released by WWE are pursued by TK. I have sneaking suspicions that a few of the people that pique his curiosity are not vaccinated (Not talking about Nia Jax...TK wouldn't do that to his locker room).

    Brian Cage has an incredible look, stunning athleticism for his size, every tool you would want in a main event talent. There's just one problem:

    Somehow he sucks. He's just not good.

    It is not even that he sucks. He has all the components for success except the ability to make anyone give a damn either way about what he does.  Complaining by proxy about his position with the company when he was given every opportunity to get himself over didn't help matters any either. I still say the best use for him would be as MJF's silent enforcer once Wardlow's inevitable face turn happens. Stick him in a suit with a Masked Assassin style mask and just make him as mean as the person 12th in line at a Black Friday sale.

    I am not given to hyperbole, and I trust TK's booking. Having said that, if Hangman is not the Joker, I will flip a damned table like Jesus. The new BTE drops momentarily, and I would hope that there is a bit where Adam Cole tracks down Hangman to catch up and he convinces him to return. 

    The last part of this aged like a jug of milk on a beach.

    Orange Cassidy is not nearly animated enough to be the Boogey Woogey Man, but I could see Wheeler Yuta turning heel and joining HFO if / when Trent Barretta ever returns.

    Yeah, the Yuta heel turn practically writes itself. I hope it happens sooner than later so we can get Danielson vs. Yuta on Dark or Elevation. I am fine with OC being Boogie Woogie in this scenario, so long as I don't tune into BTE and see any glass coffee tables.

  18. It appears that Jake Roberts' health continues to decline. I'm not sure how long his COPD has been so severe, but 40 to 60% of people with severe COPD die within five years.  At least I feel confident he is in the right place to get the best possible care for his condition. Say what you will about Tony Khan and AEW (and many of you will), it is indisputable they take VERY good care of their employees and employees families. Lets send some positive vibes his way.
