    I dont know if this is better for the metal thread because they've been like borderline for years, so I'm going to post it here with the warning that it's discordant as fuck Daughters are back. Their self-titled album is one of my favorite rock records. They seem to be posturing for an even larger, more theatrical thing, and I am down.

    The music industry also flat out doesn't care like others do. Exhibit A: Chris Brown.

    So, How's It Going?

    Hi, so, I have an update. Good news- she's pulled through Here's the short version of what happened: oral surgeon left a file in her face a decade ago. It randomly got EXTREMELY infected. It's too dangerous to remove it, so instead they just removed all her molars on that side. Also the infection spread so far that it reached her brain and airways. It's since receded, and the "plus side" of it is that she has very little memory of the whole thing. What matters is, she's survived. She's survived a hellish amount. She's the strongest person I've ever met, and if it was her against the world, I'd bet on her every time. and if you think you should yell "SUE THEM," don't think we haven't all lined up and told her this

    I would just like to take a moment and talk about what I think is the most exciting thing in the video game industry, and the most underreported news story of the year. That story is, What The Fuck Is Up With Fighting EX Layer's Trailers Example A Example B Example C

    I'll probably play a lot both because my plan is to do MOR on console. I don't want to make my PC save (approaching 100 original wrasslers) too messy with all the downloads, unless the release version has a DRASTICALLY redone set of menus for wrestlers/rings/refs/etc.

    2018 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    It's been a while since I've played enough games to have a post like this! I've seriously been pouring all of my time into R6 Siege (145 hours since February) and Fire Pro (477 hours and it's currently running right now while I write this) but I've had a couple of fun things show up in my life this month! THE WORLD OF WARCRAFT THAT GOT MADE AFTER IT WAS CLEAR IT WAS GOING TO BE A SUCCESS IS SUPER WEIRD [n/a] So I got back in. Now that you're done laughing, here's what's I have to say. I leveled a character to 60 to take advantage of the boost that comes with the new expansion, and so when I boosted from 60 to 110, after seeing all the old content, it was like installing a separate game on top of the old game. They barely feel related. It's absurd and the best weird trip I've had with a game since God of War made me incapable of enjoying a game with a serious story for the rest of the year. For anyone who might care or know what this means, I've been mainlining the Suramar quest and been having a good time with it. It's like interesting arc-wise (short: help drug addicts overthrow the supplier) but if you asked me to name two characters I would not be able to. But, hey- spooky caves, good for podcasts. that's what I wanted. IRON BRIGADE (fka TRENCHED) [3] I want to love this game! I want to love it so much! It has all sorts of things I like doing! It's just that the PC port is old and it feels like every other match I have, at least one friend ends up disconnected. That's a fucking bummer, because everything about playing it and doing it rules. If you have a time machine, you should go buy this and play it while it's new on 360 cuz it's super good. POLYTOPIA [4] Let me give you the basics. -It's Minimalist Civ on your phone. -It's free, with no abusive "WATCH ADS TO DO STUFF" structure. -It comes with four civs, there's around 15 total, new ones are $1-$3 -You have 30 turns to build your empire as big as you can -There's a scoreboard that seems physically impossible -There's online multiplayer if you need that -There's pass and play multiplayer if you want that It is perfect for me and where I'm at with video games right now. It's an empire builder you can play in short bursts where no one says more than a sentence. It's a precious diamond. EDIT: This was initially a self-roast about how out of touch I am but let me double down: I thought this game came out this year and it in fact came out in 2016 EDIT 2: upon rereading, I just want to make something clear- I am not complimenting God of War there. It has exhausted my ability to enjoy story in big budget games. I disliked it very much and I am dreading the next wave of Dad Stories it's success has certainly inspired.

    The Podcast Thread

    Hi! I'm still out here making a podcast with my friends. (short pitch: dial Bob for bad is a show about film and resolve. my friends have poisoned a netflix account (Bob) with hideous movies. half our episodes are stories about this big dumb grave of a city, the other half are commentary tracks for the movies from Bob's recommended queue) We had an idea about an excursion- a summer vacation of sorts- and now I present the results, complete with a photo gallery and a collection of videos. Here is our tale of the San Diego stop of the final Vans Warped Tour.

    There's a beat tape record label on bandcamp called Paxico Records and I listen to everything they put out at least once. I tend to keep it to myself though cuz I know that I'm maybe weird for just listening to beat tapes by themselves and whatever. I have to break that tradition because the new Swarvy record, "Anti-Anxiety," is some magic, so please check it out.

    FIRE PRO WORLD

    Not yet, no. Had to divert all resources to getting the PS4 version out in time. They'll get back to it.

    Good interview of the director at Crunchyroll. Most interesting part to hear was that Fire Pro Returns sold five times as much in the US as it did in Japan, which even accounting for the population size difference blows my mind. At least they got the message loud and clear that us idiots are out here willing to buy the game like two-four times just to prove a point.

    Is the Deftones Cover Band's singer's voice as shot as Chino's is? because it's not authentic otherwise.

    worth noting that this is a description of how the game launched and not how it currently is, but yeah, SF5 had a brutal goddamn launch that seems spurred by a shortened schedule influenced by both Capcom and Sony's need for it to be a hit and to be a hit soon after release. It wasn't. Thank god MHW overperformed, otherwise Capcom would've been well and truly fucked. also, I'm not defending it- I've burned out on it this year and have been desperate for a new fighting game. Just trying to clarify.
