    Trump's new tariff proposals include a 25% tax on video game consoles

    I hate that man. I really, really hate him with every fiber of my being. He's like someone took Reagan, George Wallace, the Know-Nothings, the John Birch Society, Ebenezer Scrooge (pre-redemption), a high-school bully, and the physical manifestation of the concept of egomania, put it all in a blender, and let the resulting slop congeal into a roughly human-shaped... thing. The only thing that...

    Most Anticipated E3 2019 Conference/Event

    in General Discussion 1 day ago

    While I'm still interested in seeing what Nintendo will show off, I'm most looking forward to MS's conference. Mainly it's because I hope to see some gameplay for Halo Infinite, some more on Gears 5, and, possibly, maybe a tease for the next-gen Xbox. ...

    3D games of the 90s that have aged the best

    in Gaming Discussion 3 days ago

    Nintendo and Rare games on the N64 have for the most part aged vastly better than pretty much anything else from Gen 5, especially since most of them went for a more colorful and cartoony aesthetic. Also, Soul Calibur is technically a 90s 3D game, and it still plays great and looks pretty decent for an early Gen 6 title. ...

    Best Kart racer of all time

    in Gaming Discussion 3 days ago

    S.Peelman said: Objectively Mario Kart 8. Subjectively Mario Kart 64, but even though it’s genuinly still good that’s one of the only games I’ll admit is my favorite simply due to nostalgia; it just means too much to me. I'd say this is pretty close to my feelings on the subject. In terms of polish and amount of content, MK8D wins hands down. But in terms of its...

    April NPD 2019 thread

    in Sales Discussion 3 days ago

    More charts! With the PS4 & XBO both having weaker Year 6s than those of their immediate predecessors, it'll be interesting to see what their legs will be like in the future, and if their combined sales will stay ahead of combined PS3+360 sales. Of course, it is worth pointing out that the PS3's 2012 followed a $50 price cut that was issued in August 2011, and as a result the PS3...

    April NPD 2019 thread

    in Sales Discussion 5 days ago

    Chart time! The PS4 and XBO both have their worst April performances to date. The XBO was actually only down 3.6% from the previous worst April for the system (2017), probably due to the hardware deals last month. Meanwhile the PS4 sold about 15% fewer units this April than in its previous worst April (2015); it is still worth mentioning that the massive drop from last April was...

    April NPD 2019 thread

    in Sales Discussion on 17 May 2019

    Into the spring doldrums we go. I don't have time to post charts at the moment. I have to leave to go to work in less than two hours, but I should have something posted late tonight or some time tomorrow. Still, to do some quick calculations, the Switch is up nearly 33% YoY, the PS4 is down 42.6% (though FWIW, last April was God of War month), and the XBO is down 20.9%. ...

    MCU Box Office in 2019, with charts.

    in Movies Discussion on 17 May 2019

    (Note: I tried to update the OP and it wouldn't take, so I'll just do this in a reply post.) Avengers: Endgame Endgame is already the biggest film of the year, with the largest opening of any film in history. In fact, it took only 16 days to become the most successful film in the MCU, and 17 days to become the #3 film of the 21st century (adjusted for inflation, of course). But how exactly did...

    Will PS5 ever catch up to the Switch in lifetime sales?

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 May 2019

    Depends on what the reveals and specifics of the PS5 and Xbox 4 are like. I think the Switch will sell maybe 90M, perhaps 100M. If neither Sony nor MS make any major screw-ups, the PS5 should sell 100M and the Xbox 4 60M, assuming no growth from emerging markets (the conventional home console market has clearly peaked in NA and Europe). ...

    FF7Remake + Sony Exclusivity + Next Gen PS5 + Episodic Nature + Game Progress

    in Sony Discussion on 15 May 2019

    Well, the original FFVII was spread across three discs and that didn't affect your progress any. You just had a save file on your memory card, and when you loaded up Disc 2, your levels, materia, etc., carried over. I imagine there's no practical obstacles towards them implementing something similar with the remake, even if all the parts come at different times. ...

    In defence of piracy

    in General Discussion on 15 May 2019

    If a copyrighted work cannot be legally obtained in your country for whatever reason, then I can see the point in piracy. Maybe the work in question has been out of print with no readily available second-hand copies (digital media is especially vulnerable to this). Maybe it's something that is unlikely to ever be re-published in an purchasable format because of some rights issue. Maybe it's an...

    As usual, I'm delivering these things later than promised, but in another thread regarding Endgame's potential to pass Avatar, I said I'd make a thread detailing the MCU's box office returns for 2019. Well, here it is. I will not only chart the individual films, but I will put their numbers in greater context, comparing them to other movies, and even make extrapolations based on trajectories of...

    Can Avengers: Endgame take the #1 spot beating Avatar?

There were about a dozen seats left by the time I got there.And all I could say is, I don't know what the fuss is all about. Considering the amount of interest this movie is getting, I thought it would be an incredible movie, but it isn't. The pacing was a little...
