Your Most Anticipated Game(s) of 2017

04 January 2017 - 04:11 PM

Now that we know what you loved in 2016, what are you hoping to love in 2017? Here's my list, in no particular order:

 

1. Persona 5 (duh)

2. Nioh

3. Not finishing Dragon Quest VIII for 11 years

4. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom (hopefully)

5. Horizon Zero Dawn

 

Honorable mention goes to Caligula, a game I would love to play but isn't getting a physical release and I don't want to sell a kidney to buy a Vita memory card. Also a shout out to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a DLC expansion thing I guess maybe kind of that seems to be coming out in 2017 but I don't think anyone ever confirmed that.

 

Of the two confirmed Dragon Quest games, I only listed the one because I'm honestly not frothing at the mouth for Heroes II. Not a lot of new characters I'm dying to play with.

Pretty minor in the grand scheme of things, but why not, right?

Black Friday, Anyone?

23 November 2016 - 03:59 PM

Anyone around here do Black Friday? Work or shop?

 

I'm obligated to work regardless of my actual availability on Black Friday. The only good excuse for not showing up is if I'm dead. I know most places are starting to open on Thanksgiving, but thankfully, it's against the law to be open if you're a big box retailer on Thanksgiving here, so it's just a one-day thing for me. Some critics say this is bad because this just sends shoppers into another state to do their buying, but honestly, not a day goes by in November where a customer asks if we're open on Thanksgiving and then tells me how ridiculous it is to make people work on a holiday like Thanksgiving, so I highly doubt this is an actual problem. The employees matter too, guys.

 

But anyways, last year I thought I'd be clever and stay up since my shift was 12:30 AM to about 10:00 AM on Friday and I knew I wouldn't be able to nap beforehand. Also, woke up to watch the parade on Thanksgiving. Since I almost passed out and needed to lean against my register the last two hours of my shift, I decided to try to get an afternoon shift instead. And lo, I'm working afternoon to night this week.

 

Admittedly, I actually like to shop as well. I'm not hard up for a cheap TV or appliances, so I just wake up when I normally do and go store to store in my area to buy movies and games. And surprisingly, it's almost always reasonably slow at like 9:00 in the morning. No big lines, no violence. In the years I've been doing it, the only rude behavior I've seen was a family that was blocking off a section of TV shows on DVD while they sifted through them. I know Cyber Monday is the new and stress-free thing nowadays but it's sort of become a tradition that I look forward to in a way to go shopping in a store.

 

Anyone else shopping/working on Black Friday?

 

 


So what's up with your signature?

06 November 2016 - 07:21 PM

Everyone's got something in their signature (or that little infobox below their avatar) that someone else has just noticed but doesn't want to ask about out of nowhere in a discussion. Here is where you can tell people what's in your signature and why.

 

Guess I'll start. So I don't remember why I picked that Hamlet quote. It was around the time we read Hamlet in school but we read an abridge of it and that wasn't in it. Maybe I thought it was nihilistic and edgy so I put it in. Haven't had the heart to remove it, since it's sort of always been there. I put that Tokyo Ghoul gif of Rize in there because I like the artistic style and it's the most stellar part of the OP.
