So, after more reading and discussing, I've opted out of Cold War and Valhalla.
one just doesnt seem good enough and the other wasnt really my bag to begin with and hear it isn't the greatest anyhow.
I looked in to a golf game because I've wanted to jump back in to that genre for some time, but again, seems like that sport just doesnt get enough attention. There are games that are promising, but not worth spending money on yet, to me.
Same with racing and certainly football.
I've wanted a football game since NCAA.
The last Madden I tried was 2009 and before that was 2005 I think, so I keep thinking it's been long enough that I'll be pleased with what will be new innovations for me, but it still just looks sad.
Plus, there seems to be a huge backlash against EA madden right now, so Im not going to positively contribute via purchasing that game.

Now, Im all the way down to Cyberpunk, then, apparently that's it until the next MLB...

Ive posted PTA before but since T-day is barely beyond us, I wanted to give this one some recognition.
I absolutely love Edie McGlurg here and pretty much in any project in which I find her.
Steve Martin is money as always.

I dont know why, but every couple of years, I catch up on The Walking Dead.
Same reasons I guess I kept up with GoT, Dexter and True Blood.
Good shows that turned into cash grab vehicles, or in Dexter's case, corporate interference.

The storytelling and directing are so weak in this series, it just seems like patchwork.
There are some decent character arcs mixed in with some good long term story narratives, but holy crap, everything else in the middle?
How do shows like this survive?
I know I know, because of guys like me, right?

The obvious music cues, the cliche close up jump scare plots...a protagonist is traipsing through the woods all cautious like then stops because they sense something even though the director just gave us a 360 degree pov showing nothing.
Camera continues to swing and BAM, bad guy two inches from the face of the character. Never heard a thing.  :popcorn:
It's just laziness and a desire to get everything in the can so they can piece it together with scotch tape, roll it out and collect their millions.
That's just one absurd example mind you, but this show is just littered with nonsense like this.
The pacing is awful except when we have our midseason finale and season finale...why ever the living f*%k
we need that Ill never know, the ubiquitous near death battle followed by a perfectly healthy non gimpy participant who's just fine now, minutes later.
New people come to camp and within one episode for some reason, one or more of them are suddenly camp elders because....? I dont know. They killed others without a story behind it, because they needed a shock scene for the ending?
It's just absolute crapola, and yet, here I sit, watching it, again.
Ok, not all of it. I fast forward through most of the so called heart to heart shit between basically non essential characters because, a) it's the exact same conversation that's been had for years by hundreds of other vanilla characters just like these and, b) the writers are trying to get you to care about them in these two or three minutes because they are about to die in the upcoming battle.

So don't watch this nonsense if you havent and if you have, dont, Im paying for sins here.

I'm just sitting here jealous of Crewe and Norm, because their teams actually fired their head coaches, while Gase continues onward.

yea, but, we still have Cal McNair as an owner

They are going to run out of time to play the games that will have to be postponed IMO

yea, I see that after I bought SM PS4, there's a PS5 icon which I guess you click and it upgrades.

I was thinking yesterday that I really wouldnt use it all that much, I mean I guess my PS4 games could be played on it so there's that, but as for new games, Im thinking now that COD isnt worth based on what I read and Cyberpunk may be the only I'd buy for quite some time.

That plus the fact this thing just stands up? You cant lay it flat?
Aside from it being disgustingly butt white, I have to deal with placement issues because it cant lay flat?
Cmon Sony, wtf?

Just to clarify it can be laid flat. It comes with a stand that allows for either.

oh good *whew* lol

I would only transfer SM (if I elect to play it again) and MLB, but all of that is moot because I don't own one.
I did see they are going for $1700 on Amazon LOL
If I was able to buy one, I might just sell it straight away for that kind of profit, holy shit.
I could buy one next spring with $1300 left in the bank. Sunday britches

I moved through that a lot quicker than I remember.
Still a good story even if a familiar one. I thought the developers really learned from the first one as far as what to tweak and what to leave alone. A nice transition from game one to game two
this is my pros and cons and will likely not apply to anyone else.

Pros
-Seasonal setting
-Morales character development
-Spider Man app delivers tasks at a glance without going in to the map
-Pigeon mission was much easier this go round
-No Screwball
-No jet pack enemies
-The chatter from the citizens is often quite funny
-No long meaningless science puzzles ala Parker in Doc Ock's lab
-Number of cut scenes diminished
-Good selection of costumes
-Worked in Miles' powers seamlessly without overstuffing the game with more movesets and gadgets
-Actually, gadgets are reduced for Miles.
-Side missions are actually engaging, or was for me.
-Same game but not.
-Nothing really new to learn gameplay wise
-Jameson podcast

Potential cons for some
-Some might find the game too similar to its predecessor
-Game felt a bit shorter (might be just me)
-No playable Peter Parker SM
-Ending not as good as the first
-Jameson podcast

And
Spoiler: show
Credits tell us there will be a SM 3 apparently

ok, I have zero VR experience so I get to ask stupid questions.
I assume the clip we see cant really deliver what the actual experience is in the 360 degree realm, right?
Watching that, it just looks like an RPG.
Stupid question two; Do you still need your tv for set up, start, pause, options, things like that?
Well, I guess so others could watch what your doing too, although I would never allow that to happen lol.
How much room do you need to play?
Would you have bought one on your own?
Ive thought about it before but was never interested enough, and now with the PS5 on the horizon, I just don't see it.
Ha! Get it?

I found a video online and I was attacking the wrong way, or at least couldn't perform in the correct manner.
Using the upwad thrust kick to get them in the air was much easier and never occurred to me because hologram Parker is yelling at me to yank enemies up while in the air, which, as noted above, didnt work.

It's pretty early on, Combat training 2.o I think.

I operate in an anal manner pretty much lol
First I sweep the map of all time capsules, underground tech and training missions and join in what criminal alerts pop up that I choose to along the way. Sometimes I'll perform some tasks in the SM app too. I let my points and tokens stack up then spend everything then go do the available side mission then the main story. At that point, I'm about 48% complete.
Now a plethora of activities open up related to the main story.
I'll continue to clear the smaller activities that net me points, tokens and offhand tasks that add towards 100% completion and then jump back to the story where I can mow through.
I like to get everything else done as much as I can so I can have everything possible available to me in the main story. That didn't happen last time and I was unknowingly at a disadvantage lol

Re: the game thus far;
Like norm, I thought the winter setting was a great idea and I love the casual costume options, i.e. the hoodies, parkas and the like, and yea, the Adidas.
At the very beginning I thought, this is exactly the same game. It is, but it isnt. The combat moves were not eliminated and removed or even revamped which allows a smooth player transition, but others were aded.
Miles has different powers than Pete, and a distinctly different character which is a welcome change.
If it had been the same ole Peter Parker, don't get me wrong, that was great fun, but change is good and it was implemented nicely in this version thus far.
I'll avoid story obviously, but so far, I'm satisfied with this purchase, especially at 49.99.

*Prayer <please no screwball in this one, please please please>

I never liked Harbaugh, but I do like Michigan so this is kind of a bittersweet thing for me lol

I still can't believe football is being played and that fans are let in the stadiums.
It was great how the NHL locked everything down in the playoffs but you cant realistically go an entire season in that manner I dont believe.

So air combat is supposed to be the big thing for Morales. So very early on there's a training session where you hone this skill by anking enemies in the air and then performing a KO.

This wont jive with you unless you are familiar with the game.
So far there's no help articles or videos I can find about this yet.

So, leaping in to the air, you hold triangle to yank up an enemy. Well, Triangle also "zips": you sraight down to an enemy on the ground. So there I am, wasting valuable time in a timed exercise. Also, while airborne, more than once, I just spike right back down to the ground, despite pressing triangle so hard, I have an imprint, and am now in between two or three enemies who beat the shit out of me, wasting time, again.
Another issue is, I yank up a weapon, which is worthless.
I only get one kill every time and the gold is 11.
Im not playing this game anymore until I find a video or article or someone tells me what the hell I am missing because obviously Im a moron.
Oh, Ive also attempted this on blind 8 year old boy easy mode and still failed.
