I was never the biggest animé fan, though I've enjoyed some of the shows. However, there are a few shows that intrigue me simply because of the aesthetic and concept.
I like video games. It's my main jam right now, as I started letting some hobbies go, video gaming is the one I kept because I love it that much.
I also used to collect toys. Like, a lot. I quit about a year ago, but I still do miss it every now and again.
So imagine a thing that combines video games, toy collecting and animé all in one. That thing you're imagining is called New Gundam Breaker.
This is the 4th installment in the Gundam Gunpla series. In this game, you'll be able to mix and match different Gunpla parts. I'm not sure if all the parts are going to affect your skills, your loadout, or your stats, or if it'll be completely cosmetic. I do think the parts you pick would have some gameplay mechanics.
Instead of running to the malls and getting trampled, it might be better to just hang out at your house and do your shopping online. With the boom in eCommerce's popularity, it became ridiculously easy to overspend during the Black Friday weekend. And I believe, as gamers, there's no deal we won't take advantage of. So, I've gone ahead and collected some of the best deals for Black Friday that I've found.
Over the weekend, a thread on Reddit created by user MBMMaverick was the focus of a lot of attention. In it, MBMMaverick was complaining that even after paying $80 for Battlefront 2, Darth Vader was still locked and not available from the get-go. The thread's been locked already due to spamming and harassment after EA's community team made a comment that didn't go over very well with the Reddit people - to put it mildly.
Some people did some math, and they figured that it would take 40 hours to unlock Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker - that's 40 hours each. Since then, EA has knocked down the prices per character.
- Chewbacca - 10,000 Credits
- Darth Vader - 15,000 Credits
- Emperor Palpatine - 10,000 Credits
- Iden Versio - 5,000 Credits
- Leia Organa - 10,000 Credits
- Luke Skywalker - 15,000 Credits
Earning about 1,500 credits per hour, it'll take you 40 hours to unlock ALL heroes, instead of just one.
Marvel and Disney have terminated their contract, leading to Marvel Heroes Omega shutting down.
I've clocked in 1300 hours in Marvel Heroes Omega, and it's the one recurring game I play when I want to just chill. I even play it without headphones on. We saw it coming, though, as a community. There weren't enough players, not enough to do, no new events, and with allegations of harassment upon the CEO, we were having bets on when it'd shut down. I had my money on 2018. I guess I was 2 months early.
Titanfall 2 is one of the funner games I've played this year. It is a sci-fi first person shooter with a fantastic campaign. The full review is still probably going to take a few days (maybe weeks, if I'm being honest), but I can easily say that it's well worth your money.
There's an achievement in the game that I'm particularly proud of being able to get. It's called "Becomes the Master."
It involves clocking in less than 33.60 seconds in the Gauntlet, the mission you have to complete as you start the campaign. It's akin to the training level in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. And the achievement Becomes the Master is a hell of a lot like the CoD 4's New Squadron Record achievement.
