  1. [MOVIE] 2018 UPCOMING MOVIE THREAD

    Sorry for the late response. There really aren't any great young action stars in Hong Kong. The methods that produced the stars of the 70s - 90s are long gone now (like the studio system and borderline child abuse kung fu/opera training) and local audiences prefer US blockbusters anyway (except for the propagandistic stuff like Wolf Warrior 2) so most of the young actors gravitate towards comedy or romance. The industry is a shell of its former self and anything that gets produced nowadays is beholden to Mainland censorship, so any Sleeping Dogs movie is probably going to very watered down, because Mainland films can't show the cops in a bad light at all.
  2. The Awesome/Annoying TV COMMERCIAL Thread

    That guy is also the new host of Man Vs Food.
  3. 2018 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    The controls for the grappling hook never really clicked with me. Once I got the jetpack wingsuit, I barely used it. It always annoys me when "open" world games force you to play a certain way. I beat the game anyway, it was worth $10 I guess.
  4. 2018 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    It doesn't really change. Basically the game's pattern is open a new area, you take over the businesses and kill a couple of leaders, and then a couple of story missions open up. The actual story missions are fun, but it does end up feeling like a lot of filler. It's the same issue I'm having with Just Cause 3. It's fun to take over bases and towns, but it wears thin after the 50th one, especially when story missions are tied to it, so the whole game will stop moving forward. Also the fact that the enemies are the worst bullet sponges since the first Uncharted is annoying. It's shouldn't take half a clip from a LMG to kill a average soldier.
  5. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    There are a ton of bootleg cartridges out there, but now they usually use the term "reproductions". More than likely the guy bought his stuff from a Chinese site like Aliexpress for like $5-10 and is trying to flip them. And Gamestop is indeed losing a lot of money. Their stock is down by around 30%.
  6. Game Deals and Subscriptions 2017

    They are on sale on the US PSN as well - the wingsuit one really changes the game a lot, as it turns it into pretty much a jet pack. The mech one is useful for some of the bigger bases/camps. I haven't found much use for the boat so far.

    If they have a lot of games, the hard drive is a good idea. Installs can be 40-50 GB so even a 1 TB will fill up fast. Maybe a PS+ subscription and/or PSN card.
  8. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    I'm holding off on it. Capcom regularly has sales on PSN.

    I don't have a 2DS but on the Wii/Wii U you have to go to the Nintendo Store via the console. The game files are tied to your console so you can't load up a SD card and just stick it in another system.
  10. Game Deals and Subscriptions 2017

    I didn't renew my PS+ this year and don't regret it. I don't play online and any of the few good free games are usually offered on deep discount PSN sales anyway.

    I don't have a Xbox, so someone may need to correct me, but GWG are the free games you get each month with a Xbox Live Gold subscription. EA Access lets you play for 10 hours on new EA games and there are other older ones you can play all you want. It's not tied in to 360 backward compatibility. Game Pass is a streaming service for 360/One games.
  12. Game Deals and Subscriptions 2017

    I got Just Cause 3, which may be a bad idea, since running it makes my PS4 sound like a jet engine. May also get a couple of other games, but my backlog is already big enough.
  13. The EL REY Network Thread

    My house just switched from Spectrum to DirectTV and now I can only get El Rey in SD. Booooo. Also can't get a lot of the HD sub channels that show kung fu regularly, like Charge.
  14. Watch Dogs

    Don't feel bad, it's been sitting on my hard drive for months and I haven't even touched it yet. At the rate I play games nowadays (and the fact that for some reason I am playing through San Andreas yet again) I will probably get to it around the time my kid goes into middle school.
  15. I'll wait a few months for it to get dirt cheap like the first game did. Not gonna make the same mistake of paying $60 (or more) for half a game.
