  • I think one of the forums former members got their Steam account compromised or something, they sent me message asking me if I could vote for their logo on some esports league website. All well and good so far, except when I googled the league, nothing came up, the logos are taken from some random vector art site, and when you try to vote it asks you to sign in on Steam and de-activate your Steam authenticator. On top of that, their english got progressively more broken as I argued that I wasn't going to compromise my security and vote on their shady ass website.

    Then they ended the conversation with a "don't say w/ me anymore."

    Fuckin' RIP.

    (I've heard there's been a Discord scam like this in the past -- but with a way more malicious code. The moment you click on said "look at this" link, it scrubs your computer for a keyboard history, finds your password, changes your account details, all in a few split seconds!)

    Spill the beans! Whose account do we gotta avoid for the time being?

    Lol it didn't seem suspicious at the time since the website didn't get any kind of ping from my anti-virus. I did a full virus sweep after that and I'm in the clear thankfully. Seems more like it's a scam just to get control of your Steam account if anything since it specifically asks to disable the security for that. Maybe to sell or or hold it for ransom idk.

    Spill the beans! Whose account do we gotta avoid for the time being?

    I believe their name on here was AutisticGamer but on Steam they had a different name (unfortunately I forgot what it was lmao and they unfriended me soon after). They've talked to me on Steam in the past before so I didn't really think of it as being anything malicious.

    Twitter be draggin' this recent trailer spot for Forspoken through the mud. Thoughts?

    I think it's way too cheesy. The vibe I've been getting from the trailers and the game world is very high-action, high-fantasy stuff. This self-aware, self-referential dialogue comes across really annoying and dull, like it needs to spoon-feed the excitement through the words on the page instead of just seeing it unfold.
    Maybe it's just a bad trailer, but I've kind of got that vibe from other pre-release trailers from this.

  • Everything I've seen in terms of gameplay has looked super solid if a bit overwhelming, since everytime they show it there always seems to be a new power, but bejeezus the writing is... something else.

  • Kirby's Dream Buffet is confirmed to be coming out worldwide on August 17th. 15$USD or 20$CAD and I couldn't be happier. Perfect price for what I assume is just a standalone Kirby side-game.

    I'm halfway through the Kiryu saga now (with a side trip to 199x - I'll review Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise soon). I'm on chapter 10 of Yakuza 3. I haven't completed any remastered Yakuza games before, so it's been fun to get the PS4 achievements.

    Yakuza 3 is interesting as it seems like a testing board for gameplay mechanics for their future games. It's got the bounty hunting of Lost Paradise plus trailing suspects and solving a murder case of the Judgment games.

    Here are my reviews so far: Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Yakuza Kiwami 2: Majima Saga, plus, for completeness, my Yakuza 0 review from 2015.

  • Well, I am now officially one week out from shoulder surgery. Taking off this next week from work so I can get some of the things I want to do before I won't be able to for several months. Golf, going to the gym, being able to sleep in my own bed (doctor requests that I need to sleep upright in a recliner so I don't roll over), stuff like that.

    On the bright side, since I will be out of work for two months, I'll take it as a chance to get caught up on some reading and some gaming. Already have something in mind, a series that I have not been able to shut up about since I played it last year.

  • Interviews are scary and anxiety inducing. Had two recently.

    One for TIFF in September, one for Starbucks.
    Both went well, Starbucks said I had good energy.

    TIFF didn't respond (deadline was Wednesday). Starbucks did (deadline was today). I got the job! Wooooo

  • Forbes published an article about a new show in the works at Wonderstorm (creators of The Dragon Prince). This new show is called Bonders, key snippets from the article, found here

    • An animated short was shown at SDCC, this short has not been released to the public. This was not a full episode, but rather a demo
    • It's sci-fi, whereas TDP is fantasy. Primarily focuses on a group of cadets at a training school for pilots. There, these cadets are paired with Bonders (described as Transformers that bond to people). These bonders can take multiple forms.
    • Main characters are brothers Edison and Tyler. Edison suffers from cerebral palsy but has learned to fly through at-home simulations.
    • Edison is played by Zach Anner, who also suffers from cerebral palsy. Originally asked to just come in as a consultant, he was eventually given the role as Edison.
    • Aaron Ehasz (co-founder of Wonderstorm) said show was inspired by love for action movies such as Top Gun and Robotech, as well as his son being born with autism and feeling inferior to others.
    • They are approaching this to be both a TV show and a game. They enlisted the help of Epic Games for demo as it was made in Unreal Engine 4. Justin Richmond (other co-founder) calls Wonderstorm an "Unreal studio" and it will make moving into AAA gaming easier because of this show.
    • Quote from Richmond: "We believe that the future of entertainment is an even closer marrying of gaming and linear media, and this is the first step in that process for us. Unreal is letting us push the creative thesis of our company by removing the technological seams between storytelling and game development.”
    • Have teamed up with Terry Redfield of Niantic (developer of AR games), who sees potential of Bonders to be AR mobile game. By the sound of it, good progress has already been made on the game.
    • Article briefly mentions a partnership between Wonderstorm and eSports. No details were given about partnership, but it has to do with Bonders.
    • No release date was given, not confirmed if it will be on Netflix.

  • I missed this comment. Five Guys is in my humble opinion the greatest burger place in the world. It used to be significantly cheaper, but they realized they could rise prices. You must return. Their milkshakes are good, their burgers are good, those fries, well, you already know the fries are good.

    Just finished Xenoblade Chronicles 3, excellent game. Definitely recommend the series for anyone who hasn't, all three are on Switch.

    Oh God. Are they really taking a throwaway joke from BL3 and making an entire game centered around that character? With these writers, it wouldn't surprise me, and considering the description I just read, it lines up

  • WB-Discovery just removed plenty of kids' and animated programming off of HBO Max in the US, as far as I know.
    That also includes some pretty popular Cartoon Network x HBO Max originals like Close Enough and Infinity Train.

    I am livid (for you americans), though thankfully some things like Close Enough have released internationally on Netflix here.

    Some people have reacted with worry over other upcoming projects like The Venture Bros reboot and the Gumball Movie and new series. It would freakin suck for those fans to have those get axed at this stage after waiting so long... though maybe it's best they leave this ship before it sinks (and find another service).

  • dojo32161dojo32161 Moderator

    Yeah, this is some absolute bullshit they're doing. Some of those shows have episodes that were announced to be coming to the platform days after they're being pulled, like Victor and Valentino and Summer Camp Island. God, why has Infinity Train just been treated this way time and time again?

  • They didn't even inform the creators of their original content they were doing this...

    Absolutely despicable. 90 "David Zaslav" Fiancé is the worst thing to happen to scripted-based programming in a long time.

  • The disrespect networks and studios have for animation is insane.

    When the pandemic started places like Netflix used animation as a way to provide entertainment in order to get around lockdowns and social distancing, and animation was flourishing with some of the best tv shows and movies I've seen in the medium in some time, but as soon as things started getting better and restrictions lightened up it's like none of it mattered. Fuck the dinosaur ass troglodytes making these decisions.

  • Had my surgery earlier this morning, finally feel decent enough to be able to type. The good news is that the tear to my labrum wasn’t as bad as initially thought. They also detached and reattached the bicep tendon to a different part of my arm due to some tendinitis. The bad news is the rotator cuff was a little more torn than initially believed, but not dramatically. That might slow my recovery, but hopefully not by much.

    Unfortunately, I also had what felt like a panic attack earlier, definitely spurred by the nausea and anxiety of the anesthesia. That was not fun, never experienced one before and hopefully never will again, that shit was scary. Right now, just trying to recover and relax, the numbing agent is wearing off and the pain is starting to be felt. But, hopefully with the labrum not being as bad and the placement of the bicep tendon, I won’t be in the sling as long as I thought.

  • I'm so sorry about that Metallica. I hope the recovery is swift and as painless as it can be.
