Thread NBA Considering 40-Minute Games, Target Score Ending For Potential Mid-season Tournament
What tournament do they have during their specific season*? It's all points from wins with no playoffs at the end unless I'm mistaken? Any tournament is outside of the season itself right? To the other point, it has to start somewhere. The only way it can grow is starting it. Of course it sounds crazy because there's nothing established for it yet, but I personally feel more of these pro leagues need smaller scenes for talent to rise from the ranks. Relying on college has its own problems.

Thread NBA Considering 40-Minute Games, Target Score Ending For Potential Mid-season Tournament
Mid-season tournament to decide final playoff spots would be great. The league wants to be global and introducing single-elimination tourneys is a way to do it. Look at football globally, there's a ton of different tournaments to spice up viewership. Envisioning an FA Cup style tournament where NBA teams face off against G-League etc. would be interesting. I hesitate to say universities because there'd be corruption there.

Thank you! It's a studio I'm still furnishing but it's very close to what I had in mind at this point. Saw NIN close to my birthday a little over a year ago and noticed the poster, friend got it for me as his present. I love it. I've got a Tycho print which may be my favorite framed piece I have, I'll snag it if I remember.

My place is starting to really come together, I'm happy with it. Built new media console last night and moved everything in tonight. Now that it's there I need to decide on the table as I previously mentioned it's temporary, but maybe something lower to at least match the height of the stand. Prepped for a new TV purchase in the coming months when I decide on which one. Before: After: Nothing crazy exciting with the computer side, just a black L desk with matching blackness. So instead here's just to the right, some new chairs I picked up along with newer succulents. I have a bunch of prints to still frame and put up, and now that the TV wall is opened up a bit, once I get a bigger TV I'll decide on what I want to put up there as well.

Thread NA/SA PSN Critics' Choice Sale begins 2/5
I was having more fun with it than expected when I gave it a real shot last year. It fell by the wayside because I hit a planet that I didn't really enjoy, and the game crashed a couple times on it (PC).Things are still caching right at go live, so you need to give it some time before they appear 100% correctly.I played through it on a PS4 slim in December. Personally there were only 2-3 sections where a lot of things in the environment were being destroyed that the frame rate tanked. If you're highly sensitive to that, maybe avoid but it didn't detract from my experience.

Thread NieR: Automata Spoiler Thread
Big bump, but I finally got back to it (having only played the intro almost 2 years ago) and played through the game this week. I really loved E's credits sequence once I accepted help. Audibly said, "Oh this is super cool." I am very happy that the game gripped me enough this time to push through all the endings, because it does reward you for seeking it out. Having just recently played through Control, I found this so much more fascinating and "what the fuck is going on (I have to keep going to find out)". I enjoyed Control as well, but where I thought it was going pluck at similar themes, it didn't really. Nier presented it time and time again, which I ate up. I didn't to a lot of side missions, I know I'll have missed out on moments. I'll be looking up the Emil quest line as I just didn't want to invest searching out how to do it all. edit: One question, after reading through this thread and not having played the first game. When you're hacking as 9S, were any of the black enemies supposed to represent the lost human souls? Or was it just programmed defense. Or perhaps when it's just the black cubes?The bold was the part that irked me. I thought there would be a bigger scene of struggle to cope with that fact, given how they've acted the entire game up to that point. 9S' termination by 2B didn't affect me either, but in the moment I was stuck in the thinking that he can just come back. I understood that meant he wouldn't be "this" 9S but I didn't like the character up to that point so it was just my selfish human nature I guess. :) The Popola/Devola arc was definitely one that hit home, I enjoyed how their story was handled.

I see, just seems a bit odd when there are other moments that are given quite a bit of time.I'm glad I did too, but I also would understand people who don't want to go through all of the effort, which is a shame. I flew through it to be honest, just because I don't get through a lot of games and got A, B, C, D, E, G, M in 20 hours.No need to spoiler tag that we're in the open thread, and I understood that part. My question is if they were a nod of representation to the black enemies (that are no longer human) from the first game after reading the thread.Well learning that they're just machines as well, giving added meaningless to this forever war and their entire motivation would seem like a pretty big breaking point. I mean A2 didn't know that right? That whole engagement between 9S and A2 at the end just seemed a bit undercooked. You can certainly say that she can't convince 9S of anything, so why bother trying, but it ended up feeling a little rushed to that choice/fight for me. Anyway it's a minor gripe on the overall story.

So I'm planning on getting a new TV for (surprise) next-gen games. Sometimes TV/Movies, but vast majority of the time spent playing games. My understanding from following the last month or so is I'd want to go with something that has 2.1hdmi for sure. I was waiting to see what came out of CES before committing to a 2020 model or 2019. Right now it seems like a 55'' C9 would be best (currently have a 40'' random 1080p I got for $200 ~10-11 years ago). My big worry is burn in. I don't anticipate buying another TV for another 5-10 years, so really want something that will last. Is there a recommended brightness for OLED that will (as near as makes no difference) ensure no burn in over that span of time? I've had a chance to see some OLEDs in person recently and they're beautiful, however if it comes down to it maybe QLED/LCD is the way to go?

Thread What tech jump in the last 20 years made you go? WOW!
We were early adopters of DSL from 56k so that was pretty mindblowing. Going from not really using the internet ever to coming home from school and watching Gamespot's live shows was amazing. That is the closest to 20 years ago, slightly longer than that it was seeing the Dreamcast compared to the N64 in a Best Buy. I was a later adopter of a smartphone and high speed internet so the wow factor was already normalized by then. Oh! Going from playing DOOM at ~30fps on low settings to 140-150fps with everything on a newly launched 1070 and new 144hz monitor was phenomenal.

I can't stand how averse to 2 door hatchbacks the car makers are in the US.

There's no if, I read it.My point is after reading it all what I'm getting is that you used what is essentially the list view but with larger banners before, and now that isn't an option. I agree the "library" view forced on looks bad, for the reason I quoted last post. But beyond that, visually it seems it comes down to how large they show each game in a list.

Thread Are you in your 'Dream Car'?
Probably the closest I'll ever be which I didn't expect to say. My realistic dream car was to get a Subaru BRZ in world rally blue, since they were announced. I bought a 2013 nearly brand new (17k miles) last year still under warranty. I love it, though I do wish it had a rear camera. I have a few cars I'd love to own in my time, but I don't see myself doing anything other than owning this BRZ for the time being. Before I bought it I was looking at used S2000's but I'm hoping Honda relaunches those eventually.I used to want this until I read into rotary engines. More power to you by all means.This article is from 6 years ago, was there anything done regarding this section? because that is fucked.

Is this also the discussion thread for the game? I played a couple last night and I don't know but the layout of everything feels so claustrophobic in this one. I do really like the improvement with leveling up characters, as well as showing you synergies with units in the store. However, it is also super annoying to try to see the traits of units you already own. Tiny is also a motherfucker in this.

Alright here's my humble set up, excuse the clutter. I mentioned I want to get either a couple boxes or a basket for the games/books/cds/etc. in the bottom shelves. Any suggestions would be great! The cables are definitely a mess. The TV is just a cheap 40'' 1080p I got for $200 about 8-9 years ago. Getting over a cold as well, more clutter. The speaker sub is under the desk, though these swan m10s are getting long in the tooth, they're around 11 years old now. My biggest issue is I have such a small amount of space I try to consolidate as much as possible. Definitely inspired to one day have better lighting, let alone my own space so I can have a dedicated living room console set up. Not sure when that'll happen since I live in the Bay Area, but it's good to have goals.Perfect, I'll check 'em out.

Thread Roller Champions - E3 Demo Thread
Played for about an hour last night, and found it pretty fun. I think there's a lot of potential for customization, but do think the game needs fine tuning. Namely, my friend and I agreed that the pausing after every goal to show the replay and reset everyone breaks the flow. They should just have everyone continue skating as they are and spawn a new ball since it's random anyway. They can show a replay for the match winning goal at the end then.That'll come, this is a super early test that is meant to get feedback on the core gameplay.Hit X (same button as tackle) and you do a dodge. I do agree a bit longer cooldown between tackle attempts, right now you can use it as a boost as well. I wonder if you can use the aiming for shooting for manually passing, to try to bounce it around the higher parts of the arena to then get to a teammate on the other side.

They did. That said, I just finished the game and there weren't any arks appearing on focus, but I still didn't have the dart launcher or the grav hole power. Really bummed about that...sucks really. Had about 14 hours in the game, I was definitely clearing a lot of side content.I've never been so mixed on a game. I love the combat encounters, and the feedback from kills is amazing. However, everything outside of it is so frustrating. My second to last play session I completely forgot about the perks you can add on top of the powers, and spent a couple minutes spending 20 points on all these powers. I also don't understand why the tank costs $500 to call...let alone that you can only upgrade one vehicle. I mean I used the Icarus 90% of the time once I had it unlocked, so the upgraded main jeep didn't matter at all.I definitely had the same exact glitch, but I was able to use autosaves that were mid-mission. Not sure why there weren't any for you to load back to? I tried loading back to when you call it down but it kept glitching the same way, so I had to choose one a couple back and replay some of the mission again. The ground control glitch (that's talking to the Doctor right?) was fucked. I hated that...I skipped that mission for hours before returning and finally looking up the fix. You have to talk to his "legs" and it'll start the dialogue.

You don't have any other saves before that mission for sure?

Thread RAGE 2 |OT| Newer Dawn
Played some more last night, I'm about 4 hours in. I think the craziest thing to me is how poorly the vehicles handle for being an open world that even has racing available. It's not just the handling however, that is something that isn't super uncommon in games. The worst part for me is that these are all desert/off-road vehicles, yet as soon as you stray off of the path of the roads you just go bouncing and flying around. This really ruins the driving experience for me since if I'm in an off-road vehicle, I want to stray off the path and find shortcuts, especially when the routes to missions include snaking roads. Still love the combat, but after last night I wish this was a linear structure with fast traveling between hub towns or something. M+KB is so fun for the gameplay, but driving is so un-fun I have to motivate myself to drive to missions.That's lame, what's the incentive of using anything else other than maybe the tank mobile? Also funny aside, I found my first motorcycle and was on my way back to a town to save it. I hit a bump on the side of the road which sent the motorcycle flipping into a ravine right outside the entrance.The two bold points are most baffling to me. I thought my game was bugged because I couldn't figure out how to get to the next rank of shotgun upgrades. Having to use the arrow key to go down to the next path, when every other upgrade with felrite or whatever is just a press and hold. Makes no sense. No confirmation as well is just weird. I think they just ran out of time with the UI of the menus, especially with the lag of how it loads.

Finished with a level 3 tusk, level 2 tiny (almost 3), level 3 beastmaster, level 3 razor, level 3 shadow fiend, almost level 3 juggernaut, can't remember the others. Finished 31-4, the 4th was losing to the dragon because dumb Tiny knocked it into the corner nad it murked everyone before they could get back.

The reason you get that reaction hateradio is that it takes forever to get anywhere when you're southern peninsula on either side. I'm not surprised at all that people don't go out to Oakland if they live anywhere south of SFO. He was talking about St. Louis but I agree that's why I've wanted to move to Seattle for about a decade. That said, it is getting the same exact problems the bay has. Public transit has gotten worse and traffic is abysmal. The city itself has way more my type of vibe than SF however. I'm too young to really remember what SF was like before the (second) tech boom, which sucks.Well I live exactly in Berkeley/Oakland. I will agree with you the little downtown areas in the southern peninsula at least have restaurants and things to do, which I haven't seen in east bay suburbs too much. Albany/Westbrae seem pretty cool for a quieter spot. There's a good beer garden I like over in Westbrae. Plus fieldwork brewery isn't too much farther.

I'd love to but I don't have the money for it. This is an indoor roller league in the east bay. It was my first time playing ever earlier this year and I had a blast. Now I have to keep playing to justify how much money I spent on equipment. haha

GOHT DAM. That's ludicrous. Yeah that's the one by the way, which is already kinda costly for me. It's about $15 a game. Fortunately my company will reimburse me $50/month for fitness activities so it's more like an up front cost I slowly get back over the months.

I come from it on the opposite end. If you're paying that much for rent you really don't have much money to go elsewhere. So yes, owning a car and paying to garage it is a luxury. If you live in the Richmond, Sunset, and south of Mission it's doable without.

Oh also the legendaries, one is a wolf with a sword, and the other is a wolf that had a mutation in development. Really boring in my opinion.

Thread Slay the Spire - PS4 and Switch |OT| Heart of the Cards
Depending on the class, there are cards that will boost your amount of mana/energy/etc. for a turn. Either that specific turn, or the next turn. There are also relics that will boost this. The defect also has a card to spawn plasma in an orb slot (adding 1 energy per turn). Or maybe I misinterpreted what you meant altogether.

Have over 200 hours playing it since it went into early access. Amazing game, and hope to see it grow more. Did they have a relatively recent update to the dailies? They seem way easier now, as I'm finishing almost every one the last 2-3 weeks.

Is there a way to set damage to cosmetic when in the open world, and keep it for the individual race events? I want it on the events but i also love driving in a straight line no matter what in the open world, so I inevitably bin the car and render it undriveable.

Thread Mario Tennis Aces |OT| Where Waluigi Fans Get Served
Simple mode is where it's at, but I feel like there's a lot of BS still in that mode. I was against a luigi last night who would be doing the dive/soft returns but at extreme angles to cross court that would win the point, it was ridiculous. More ridiculous was that simple slow (not so) curved shots my player just wouldn't hit back, even though I was in position...
