Thread Yakuza is the greatest video game franchise ever and here's why (lots of 4K screenshots)
The fiancée and I have been running through the series on our Series X and finished 7, 0, Kiwami 1 and started Kiwami 2 last night. Was really happy with how much she got into it (of course Majima is her fave now), she even made a Valentine’s brownie for me with 24 Hour Cinderella lyrics on it. Also as whisky fans, it’s been great seeing a number of Scotch and Japanese brands we have at the house in game! ^^

Thread Nike unveils their first hands-free shoe
They run a bit narrow and took a bit to break in on my left foot (right was perfectly snug), but they’re my go tos now. Had no issues on court with them at all, too. Will probably try to snag another pair once lockdown lifts out here in the UK since I last saw them at my local Nike outlet. Initially grabbed my purple pair in LA last year, but totally worth it for the uniqueness and feel.

Thread 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Spoiler Thread || Mechs, Adventures, and... Yakisoba-pan?
Just Platinumed the game. Man, what a ride. Loved how all the threads just came together and nothing felt “too much.” I generally played a remembrance/destruction until the lock, then would switch accordingly. Wish there was a bit more history on the Sentinel project itself, but there’s more than enough sci-fi shenanigans to indulge myself in. Also, I appreciate the extra destruction levels. That mode was waaaaay more addicting than expected. Do wish we got more of an SRW-esque cutscene during the attacks like the attack previews, but I’m good. And would love to see a pseudo-sequel/DLC based on another pod that took a drastically different turn, considering the extra scene alludes to that somewhat. Try remote play on your PC/Tablet/Mobile. Played it like that on my iPad/PS5 for a quarter of my playthrough while my fiancée was on the XSX with the main TV.

Having read the webtoon all the way to the latest chapter after watching the first few anime eps then going back to the anime, I appreciate how it’s attempted to condense so much in so few eps. Like there’s still a ton of exposition missing, especially for some future setups, but how they’ve come back to some key plot points in the most recent eps has been alright when compared to the bloat of the webtoon.

Thread Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS Maxiboost ON |OT| Wow, Cool Robot
Butt clenching dodges ftw!Once you’re caught in a melee combo, it’s up to your partner to stop them, which is specifically called cutting. This is where comms come into play to let you partner know you need support. Doesn’t always work but a good partner generally has an eye on both enemies. Another way to get out of combo strings or attacks in general is to have the Extend Burst. When the burst gauge is at least 50%, you can activate your burst and escape while getting attacked. Other bursts allow you to do this, but the gauge has to be at 100%. As for a melee guide? Well, it’s from Gundam Versus but the principles are pretty much the same.

Haven’t seen that second one, so thanks for sharing that! EDIT: Hmmm, some of those seem like a misnomer in their difficulty. Like it says Zabanya is hard, but I’d argue it’s harder to use Reborns in comparison who is listed as intermediate. I suppose from a beginner standpoint (which it was made for his friends getting into the game) it would make sense considering Reborns has more obvious tools, but that’s a unit that definitely scales tremendously with the skill of the player.

If you want to add a new track (s) without “deleting” the ones you’ve added, it’s a little tricky. So for example, you had 12 tracks on your USB folder before... simply add another track to that folder so there’s 13 and import. Doing a clean import with just one new file in the folder will undo your previous import. Doing it the previous way will also remember your custom BGM song settings. It’s weird, but that’s what I’ve discovered when having to reupload songs to boost their volumes. tl;dr To import new tracks without deleting your previous work, add them with your previous batch of songs in the MBONMUSIC folder on your USB import the whole lot. Don’t import just one track by itself. Yeah, like mentioned above, online matches seem to boost it way faster. I’ve 5 starred Haman and Meer already... Sent!

It’s tough when you’re playing a vet as they know when to change up their landings, always waiting for simple mistakes, etc. At that point, it’s best to just focus on the other player (if possible) to help him lose focus on you just a little.

Including all that from Tyrant Rave, I'd argue to focus on supporting versus trying to go front initially. It'll help you see the game a bit more while attempting to mitigate damage on your end as much as possible. Zaku Amazing is also a really good suit for beginners and has tools to deal with melee users rushing in (2b counter) among having a nice move set. In the video below, I'm primarily playing support to my Penelope teammate and you can see I'm essentially edging the green lock/red lock border to maintain a safe-ish distance from my enemy while picking my shots as they attempt to land most of the time.

Yeah, it’s something us series vets have had to deal with since EXVS PS3 in 2011. It’s rough on the EU folk considering how much more niche it is. It’ll do it’s best to match by region, but a lot of the times we just make rooms set to worldwide that denote specific regions to play with. It’s at least much better than the game attempting to match you up with jp folk in ranked and not being able to play at allInterestingly enough, Mission Mode usually has several missions that guide you through the basics. But for more online team based stuff, YouTube vids are your best bet. I can share some if you’re interested.Used to be. Gotcha Force crew from Capcom eventually became Byking which worked with Bandai on the first EXVS.

And yeah, it should recognize you've pre-ordered it and allow you to play for this current session if you do it now. Finally, there's no access to it outside of those times.

It’s mechanically less complicated than Versus without the boost dive and strikers, but it’s faster and the arenas are nowhere near as big.Streaming only. And when it streams from the PS4, you’ll only get one track (the Crossbone one). Blame music licensing. All of us recording are using capture cards of the sort.

Thread My wish of using the Switch Pro Controller on the PS4 has come true
Randomly found this page when looking for better controller solutions as my Dualshock 4s have seen their fair share of work over the years. They’ve felt relatively sluggish when playing Gundam EXVS Maxiboost ON over the weekend and I didn’t really want to get a new one with the PS5 so close as well. As I’ve been using a Magic-NS (Switch) and that’s worked wonderfully with my Wii U Pro Controller for Switch and PC with no issues at all, I didn’t realize there was a PS4 version as well. So it’s been great to discover there’s now a Magic-S Pro that works for both the PS4 and Switch as a better all-in-one solution! ^^

Yarp, the EXVS franchise is basically the sequel series of the Seed VS series, but with obvious improvements. If I remember correctly, the Gundam VS line goes...They share the same core mechanics, but MBON is faster and doesn't have more inputs like the Strikers or Boost Dive.

Yeah, closed beta rotated like 3 songs similar to the Gundam Versus one way back. As for vocals, well... you can grab them if you get either the JP or SEA versions... and even more tracks with the Premium Sound Edition. As for Lupus Rex, it and the Montero and Zaku Amazing are being back ported to MBON, similar to how a bunch of DLC units got backported from OG Maxiboost to Full Boost back in the PS3 days. I can only assume we'll start seeing more units like that come over and possibly some Versus suits as well. Too much of a money maker, especially since COVID ganked the JP arcades for a bit with EXVS always raking in that cash.

Simply create a folder called MBONMUSIC on a USB drive and import all your mp4s there.

Quatre WZ is a lower stat version of Heero's.

Gotta play him slightly closer than Heero WZ because of the lack of ammo, at least I did anyway.

Giant form took sooooooooooooo long, especially without Metal Cooler. But man aside from Tapion handling business, Lord Slug and Ribrianne carried like crazy. But at least I now have another LR in Goku/Bulma instead of getting Cell... ;__; xD

Ah damn, I've got over 400 red coins now. Hoarding past 500 until LR SSJ4 Vegeta shows up in the shop... or I could get INT Black now... >.> And damn, Japan already got 1st place app rewards of 30 stones. I can only imagine it won't be too long for GLB to get theirs (thanks France). Also, firing up my JP account, dudes got transforming Trunks and Zamasu instead of Geets and Buu. Nice.

Danke! Yeah I got jack shit old ass dupes across the board until that second run through of the super banner. The next multi after Gohan got needed dupes for transforming Goku and Vegeta and MVP 17. Best 450 stones dropped in a long ass time. I should have enough for another run through of Cell’s banner after the EZAs come in hopefully since I’d like at least INT Black and Buu for the SBRs.

Loads of dupes from the 300m summon, but did get a dupe LR Gohan and a new Future Gohan leader. Maybe it’s a sign to pull on Gohan’s banner. XD Also got through 3 of the new SBRs so far (Androids, Pure Saiyans, Movie Bosses). Lawd are they hard.

Dropped about 600 stones saved and earned from the EZA and missions. Ended up getting 2 LR Gokus, finally got Turles x2 and dupes of LR Gogeta/Vegito and everyone else on the banner except for LR Vegeta. Not too worried about getting him since I’m sure I’ll have enough red coins by the time he ends up on the shop, assuming I don’t pull him with whatever extra stones comes down the line soon.

Thread Pokémon Center to open in London
By the time I got in, like 30% of the stock was gone, but they were refilling things like apparel and whatnot. I was primarily after the exclusive stuff and since it was one London item per person (like you couldn’t get two London Pikachu’s, not one out of the entire lineup) there wasn’t too much worry for those disappearing. But if you’re looking for a Wailord, you best be one of the first groups in line. They were all gone when I got in with loads of people still asking. Anyway, here’s my six item haul. Really like the quality on the shirt and the tote bag. Fiancée digs it, so mission accomplished. ^^

Absolutely underestimated how long we’d have to wait, even getting in early as well too. They really need to implement a time limit for in store. If I knew I had to wait this long just by coming at 7, I would’ve gone home already.

Outside of the limitations of the control scheme, I'm really happy with the gameplay loop, specifically the combo system, T track versions and extra challenges (like bomb # goombas, etc). I mentioned it before, but I really hope they implement them into the main series because it's nice having that extra layer.

Pretty much echoing all the reasons why you'd have one (active lifestyle, good for work/social notifications, a bit more hands off the phone). I've had a series 1 & 2 and the Apple Watch has been amazingly convenient. Again, it isn't a must have, but I really don't see myself letting it go any time soon. Plus using it for contactless payments all the time is the best.

Oh of course. But they'll more than likely be available in the general pool even after this banner versus being specifically featured like Pauline was (hell, she might show up in the general pool as well after this, thus diluting the overall pull percentage, blah blah blah). That's just the coin you gotta flip with these gacha games.

Depends really. Just getting Pauline is already a win from this banner. With it ending pretty soon, I'd suggest to use your rubies for the next one since there will be more than likely have a bigger focus on the new banner character for extra points in the next cup.
