  1. Avengers: Endgame tickets are now on sale. I just got mine for the first IMAX showing on the 25th.
  2. I tested Stadia back in December-January under the Project Stream name. It worked incredibly well. If they've improved the latency from then to now, then it will absolutely be a viable way to play games.
  3. This is why you aren't a business person. Microsoft KNEW if they didn't release it on Steam, they were SEVERELY limiting the amount of people who would buy this game. The Microsoft Store is hot garbage on PC, and I hate that I had to use it for Gears 4 and Forza Horizon 4. A huge number of PC players actually refuse to buy anything on the Microsoft Store because of the way it handles game installations. I am one of the few who did install games through it simply because I wanted to play the games. Putting the game on Steam, the biggest store for PC games, gets it in front of more consumers, thus increasing the amount of copies sold. Also, The Last of Us being multiplatform is not the same. Yes, you may consider Steam a "competitor" (I don't; they're just a store. It's like a digital Best Buy) but guess what Operating System the computer has to have to run Halo? Windows. Also, game sales ARE the most important way for these companies to make a profit. Yes, consoles do eventually make a profit after the component prices come down in price the older they get. Also, Harty is right. Nintendo games stay full price because you can't get them anywhere else. Target even has to exclude them from the buy 2 get 1 free deals they run sometimes, because Nintendo tells them they can't discount them (this may have changed, it has been a while since I participated in one of those sales.) Microsoft is not getting rid of Xbox Consoles. They know there are people, like yourself and even me to an extent, that want to lay back and not have to worry about if a game will run on their machine, and that's one reason Xbox consoles will stick around. They are just expanding their reach to people WHO DON'T WANT ONE (or someone like me, who has one, but would prefer to play games on PC if they're available there.) Say it's the year 2018, someone wants to play Halo, but they don't want an Xbox. What is the likeliest thing to happen? That person just doesn't play Halo. Microsoft doesn't make money from that person. Now, say the same person does have a PC capable of playing games, and Halo is available on PC. Microsoft makes money on them by providing them a PC version, which puts more money in Microsoft's pocket. They GAIN a sale they otherwise wouldn't have had. Also, just judging from the reaction from the Halo and gaming communities, you are in the minority. The vast majority of people are very excited that Halo is finally coming back to PC. More people coming back to Halo is a great thing. This also gives PC players the ability to FINALLY finish the original trilogy since Halo 1 and 2 were already released on PC.
  4. You know all this content is being added to the Xbox One version as well, right? So, it's actually a great time to just be a fan of Xbox in general. No one is taking your console away. This is the PERFECT strategy for Microsoft. You know they actually LOSE money when consoles release, right? They make it back with game sales. Them putting their games on PC and Xbox INCREASES the amount of money they make from those software sales. Microsoft is turning Xbox into a brand, rather than a piece of hardware. They're also toying with the idea of putting Game Pass on Switch. Again, another way to earn money, which they can then turn into new consoles, new AAA games, etc. This isn't a case of games are PC exclusive. They are just releasing on PC as well, which makes more sense since they also created Windows.
  5. All of my dreams are coming true: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2019/03/12/halo-mcc-coming-to-pc/ My level of excitement cannot be measured.
  6. New Big Wreck song out today.
  7. If EA would just take the approach of leaving the developer alone more often, we'd get more great games from their studios. I'm glad they trusted Respawn and stayed hands off with this, because it turned out fantastic.
  8. You are definitely in the minority on this. This game is fucking awesome, and it is receiving glowing early impressions. Also, you don't play as a Pilot. You play as someone recruited by the Apex Predators, which is why you don't wall run. Wall running in this universe is something only Pilots can do, since it's part of the Pilot suit. The reason for this is Respawn tested the game early on with Pilots and wall running and said it did not feel good for the genre. This is a spinoff of Titanfall, was never billed as a proper Titanfall game, and the name reflects that. It just takes place in the same world. Also, their effort is far from lazy. They added some genuinely great twists on the genre, and the game has that AAA level of polish. They nailed the release strategy for this and I love their reasoning: They wanted people to play the game and let the game speak for itself rather than a 6 month marketing campaign before anyone got to touch it. They've also done things the correct way in terms of microtransactions. New legends and skins can be earned by playing the game.
  9. This is a fucking BANGER.
  10. Yeah, I wouldn't double pay either.
  11. Yep, I noticed as well. Like you said, it has done it in the past before, but never for this long.
  12. I was wondering what happened with that Hoobastank tour. This is extremely exciting news.
  13. The album doesn't actually come out until March 1st.
  14. Ant-Man was a confirmed survivor at the end of Ant-Man and The Wasp.There was no "implication." He was 100% shown to have survived the snap.
  15. I have a feeling that if the Panthers don't win out, and we miss the playoffs, that our new owner is going to fire him. With the amount of talent we have on the team, there is no excuse to be losing to the teams we have lost to. Rivera fired 2 defensive coaches yesterday, and he is now taking over the defensive playcalling duties, so he is clearly coaching for his job.
