Console Gaming Discussion / For Honor
« on: May 17, 2019, 11:01:20 AM »
Anyone download this when it was free back in February on PS Plus? I downloaded it in the "be safe, in case I want to play it" type of way, then in March started actually playing it, and now my brother and I group on nearly every day online to play it. Highly addicted.

It's a fighting game, with 3 factions (although they've sort of added a 4th): Vikings, Knights, Samurai.

The fighting style is easy to learn, as there's 2 side attacks and a top attack, and you can throw a light or a heavy, as well as choosing to do a "dodge forward" or "dodge sideways" attack for many characters as well. There's 4 classes: Vanguard, which are your solid all-around types, assassins which tend to be faster but have less HP, Heavies, which are pretty much what they sound like, and then Hybrid.

Anyways, if anyone wants to give this one a shot, let me know. I'd be more than happy to group up and go through the ropes.

I recorded this last night (apologize for linking to Reddit, I only go to that site for the FH subreddit to stay informed of the updates they make to the game), and it was super cool. There's an event going on right now for a "Realistic Dominion" mode, which is basically just "King of the Hill," with your 3 capture points and you get points there more capture points you have, typical stuff.

The realistic bit comes in because there's no HUD. There's no radar, normally there's an indicator on your enemies of what side their attacks are coming from, but there's none of that in Realistic. Which makes some these parries (which were complete luck) that much more difficult. Anyways:

Console Gaming Discussion / MLB 19: The Show
« on: February 22, 2019, 01:44:04 PM »


Probably skipping this year since I have 18, unless there's some crazy new features that I HAVE TO HAVE. I do like these changes to RTTS though, I like the idea of the personality types and relationships, that is pretty neat to have that off-the-field stuff in there. Not sure how I feel about getting rid of the caps, but, whatever, it's just a game anyway.

All that being said, The Show is always great, the gameplay is fantastic, and if you haven't played one yet or it's been a few years, I'd recommend picking this up when it comes out.

Pro Football / So we were joking around about drinking games....
« on: January 30, 2019, 11:01:32 AM »
When I remembered I created some back in the day. Logged into my Facebook for the first time in forever just to copy and paste these and then deleted that shit again. Enjoy some of the names and the oddly specific rules!


This is from 2010, apparently:



Couple of things right off the bat.

Touchdowns = drinking. Period. For the Jets Chargers game, consider it celebration when the Jets score, a drowning of sorrows when the Chargers score.

Halftime/End of Game = Amaretto shots. We shall do these together.

Lets get to specifics.

Cowboys/Vikings

Any mention of Jessica Simpson = drink

Any time Brett Favre is referenced as a "gunslinger/warrior/a lot more careful than in the past/looks like a kid out there enjoying the game" = drink

Any time Tony Romo is compared to Brett Favre = drink

Any time Tony Romo's botched snap is mentioned = drink

Any time the camera shows Wade Philips and/or Brad Childress staring blankly at the field = drink

Any time Adrian Peterson fumbles = drink

Any time Jared Allen does a sack celebration = drink

Any time a past Cowboy is mentioned = drink

Any time Jerry Jones is shown in his press box = drink

Any time Jerry Jones is shown in his press box unhappy = drink twice

Any time Roy Williams drops a pass = drink

Any time Roy Williams catches a pass = drink twice (you're clearly already drunk if you saw him catch one)

Any time Percy Harvin's migraines are mentioned = drink twice (feel his headaches!)

All I can think of for now. Possibly more later.



Jets/Chargers

Any time USC is mentioned = drink

Any time Brad Smith comes in at QB = drink

Any time the Jets defense forces a turnover = drink

Any time it was Revis = drink twice

Any time a pass is incomplete in Revis' vicinity = drink

Any time a stat box is shown with all the receivers Revis has faced this season = drink

Any time Rex Ryan is shown screaming = drink

Any time Rex Ryan is shown joking around with Mark Sanchez = drink

Any time Mark Sanchez is shown standing uncomfortably next to Rex Ryan = drink

Any time the Jets turn the ball over = drink twice

Any time Philip Rivers can be seen trash talking = drink

Any time Norv Turner's playoff record is shown or mentioned = drink twice (FEEL HIS PAIN!)

Any time Braylon Edwards drops a pass = drink

Any time Braylon Edwards catches a pass = drink twice (You're clearly drunk if you think you saw him catch one)

Any time Braylon Edwards catches a TD pass = drink thrice (that's 4 times, because you have to drink once for a TD).

Any time any sort of J-E-T-S reference is made (on the broadcast) = drink

Any time the words "Revis Island" are spoken = drink







And this is from 2011:


Couple of things right off the bat.

 

 

Touchdowns = drinking. Period. For the Jets Colts game, consider it celebration when the Jets score, a drowning of sorrows when the Colts score.

 

 

Halftime/End of Game = Shots

 

 

This is a beer drinking game. You can do shots instead anywhere it says drink, but you may die. You can also drink just regularly, of course, but make sure to drink when these things happen. Feel free to adjust rules or add-on at your own desire.

 

 

Lets get to specifics.

 

 

Saints/Seahawks

 

 

Any video montages of the Saints Super Bowl year= drink

 

 

Any mentio of Tracy Porter's game-winning interception in the Super Bowl = drink (Bonus: If they show Manningface = drink)

If Matt Hasselbeck is injured/benched and Charlie Whitehurst has to play = drink

 

 

If Marshawn Lynch scores a goalline TD = drink

 

 

Any discussion of Reggie Bush's Heisman (probably none, unfortunately) = drink

 

 

Any time Reggie Bush is stuffed in the backfield = drink (this one may kill you)

 

 

Any time the camera shows Sean Payton or Pete Carroll celebrating immensely = drink

 

 

Any mention of Pete Carroll's career at USC = drink

 

 

Any mention of Pete Carroll's relation to Reggie Bush = drink

 

 

Any time Reggie Bush fumbles = drink

 

 

Any mention of the Saints formerly being the "Aints" = drink

 

 

Any mention of Seattle's 7-9 record = drink (Bonus: if it's also mentioned that they're the first team to win their division with a losing record = drink)

 

 

Any time the "12th Man" is mentioned = drink

 

 

Any time a Saints penalty is blamed on crowd noise = drink

 

 

If Brees completes a pass to 6 different receivers = drink

 

 

If Brees completes a pass to 10 different receivers = 2 drinks

 

 

If Brees completes 3 touchdown passes to different receivers = 3 drinks

 

 

Any time Mike Williams relation to Pete Carroll is mentioned = drink

 

 

Any time Mike Williams' resurgence is mentioned = drink

 

 

 

All I can think of for now. Possibly more later.

Any time the Jets turn the ball over = drink twice

 

 

Any time Braylon Edwards drops a pass = drink

 

 

Any time Braylon Edwards catches a pass = drink twice (You're clearly drunk if you think you saw him catch one)

 

 

Any time Braylon Edwards catches a TD pass = drink thrice (that's 4 times, because you have to drink once for a TD).

 

 

Any time the words "Revis Island" are spoken = drink

 

 

Any mention of the Jets defensive issues this year = drink

 

 

Any time Santonio Holmes Super Bowl MVP award is mentioned = drink

 

 

Any time any of the Jets off-field issues are mentioned = drink (that means drink for each. So if the words Inez Sainz come up, drink. If Rex Ryan's foot fetish comes up, drink. If Braylon Edwards DUI comes up, drink. If the Sal Alosi trip is brought up, drink. If...well, you get the picture).

 

 

Any time Sanchez throws a pick = drink

 

 

Any time Ladanian Tomlinson is shown on the bike on the sideline = drink

 

 

If LT gets injured = drink

 

 

If Shonne Green fumbles = drink

 

 

If Vernon Gholston's name is mentioned = drink (if his lack of a sack in his career, or the word "disappointment" is mentioned = drink again)

 

 

If Jim Leonhard's injury is mentioned = drink

 

 

If the Colts receiving corp injuries are mentioned (Clark, Collie, etc) = drink

 

 

Any time Jim Caldwell is shown on the sidelines with a completely blank expression (basically, any time Caldwell is shown) = drink

 

 

If you're unsure whether Caldwell is actually alive when shown (ever seen Weekend at Bernie's?) = drink

 

 

Any time Manning's play-calling is mentioned = drink

 

 

Any time Manning audibles a play = drink

If Keller scores a touchdown = drink (so drink twice)

Political Ranting / How was everyone's voting experience?
« on: November 06, 2018, 04:32:17 PM »
Well, today's the day and, regardless of what arguments and counter-arguments you've heard, you've made your decisions. So how'd it go?

Here in Washington, it's pretty awesome because our ballots get mailed to us and we can just drop them off in ballot boxes (so much easier than back in SC). So that was a pleasant experience. I dropped mine off this past Saturday!

How about everyone else? Long lines? Crappy machines? Particularly passionate individuals while you waited? Any predictions for how this all turns out this evening?

On the one hand, meh. On the other, they'll probably have this hacked in a week's time and then you'll be able to add whatever games you want, and in THAT case...maybe. Just maybe.

I don't even know what I'd want on here. Obviously FF7 since I've never played it. I'd take Twisted Metal 1 and 2. I hear Chrono Cross is great although I've never played it. I'd take Crash Bandicoot 1-3 (even though I own the HD remaster). Metal Gear Solid, absolutely. Jet Moto, sure, why not. I never played Parappa the Rapper but always heard it was good (did that need extra peripherals?) I know it won't come on it but I'd love to have NFL Xtreme again. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 would be nice.


I dunno. What other Playstation games were good? I feel like my collection back in the day wasn't very much. Didn't own (or even play) any of the RE or Silent Hill games.

Chit Chat / Do You Remember.....
« on: September 18, 2018, 05:37:42 PM »
Feel free to post your own "do you remembers" in here, whether it's "do you remember this movie" or "this scene" or whatever.

I'll start.

Hey, do you remember when TUFF was using real NFL player names occasionally, taking some 3rd or 4th stringers and using them for TUFF? Remember when BBB introduced off-the-field incidents and Mao Tosi died and there was a "story" about it basically in all the TUFF news? Remember when his family contacted Ben about it because they were understandably confused and horrified?

Man, the internet in its infancy was so crazy.

Pro Football / Peter Warrick Hall of Famers
« on: August 06, 2018, 11:53:36 AM »
I can't remember if I've introduced this concept in a previous time or not, but my friend and I used to have what we called "Peter Warrick Hall of Famers." These were NFL players that were never going to make it to the HoF, yet were starters for their teams (or others) consistently for several years before just vanishing into the abyss (draft busts usually don't count, partially because they're remembered just for being busts, partially because their time in the league is usually shorter).

Anyways, here's a few names for examples. Usually I do a "Peter Warrick Hall of Famer of the Day," but I'm not sure I feel like committing to that schedule, so I'll just start things off and we'll see how well this does. You guys feel free to add too! Doesn't have to be one a day, doesn't have to be daily. It's fun to remember "these guys."

 Edit: I'm compiling the posts after this one into, well, this one.

1. Curtis Conway (WR, Chargers, Jets)


2. Eddie Kenninson (WR, seriously, how did any of these Chiefs WRs keep their starting jobs for so long during this time? Snoop Minnis? Johnnie Morton?)


3. Jason Sehorn (CB, Giants, Rams)


4. Natrone Means (RB, Chargers)


5. Elvis Grbac (QB, Chiefs, Ravens)


6. Jeff Garcia (QB, 49ers, Eagles, Bucs)


7. Michael Westbrook (WR, Washington) AND 8. Stephen Davis (RB, Washington)


9. Kerry Collins (QB, Panthers, Giants, Titans)


10. Marc Bulger (QB, Rams)


11. David Woodley (QB, Dolphins, Steelers)


12. Ron Dayne (RB, Giants)


13. Robert Porcher (DE, Lions)


14. Adam Archuleta (S, Rams, Washington, Bears)


15. Marion Barber (RB, Cowboys, Bears)


16. Mario Manningham (WR, Giants)


17. Christian Okoye (RB, Chiefs)


18. Clinton Portis (RB, Washington, Denver)


19. Wayne Chrebet (WR, Jets)


20. Lofa Tatupu (LB, Seahawks)


21. Brian Westbrook (RB, Eagles, Giants)


22. Donnie Abraham (CB, Jets, Bucs)


23. Olandis Gary (RB, Broncos, Lions)


24. Aaron Brooks (QB, Saints, Raiders)


25. Bobby Hebert (QB, Saints, Falcons)


26. Deuce McAllister (RB, Saints)

Chit Chat / Top 5 July 4th Movies
« on: July 04, 2018, 03:36:31 PM »
Lets do this:

#1 - Independence Day. Come on, wasn't going to say anything else.

#2 - Jaws. On July 4th, the beaches will be open.

Honestly that's all I came in here with, so, lets see....

#3 - The Patriot? Right? That's not a bad choice.

#4 - The Sandlot. You know the scene, plus, it's baseball. What could be more American?

#5- Born on the 4th of July. I've uh....I've never actually seen it, I just didn't want to use Live Free or Die Hard in the fifth spot.

Pro Football / Tie goes to the ballcarrier
« on: July 03, 2018, 01:25:15 PM »
You know, I was watching MLB Network a day or two ago, and they were reviewing a close call at third, whether Acuna Jr had gotten tagged while either stealing third or just stretching a base hit by his teammate by going from first to third, but I realized, and granted it's kind of similar to the "inconclusive" mandate of NFL replay, but what if there was simply a "tie goes to the ballcarrier" kind of thing?

I know the biggest complaint about the NFL is how offense oriented it is already, rules-wise (especially rules regarding WRs and QBs), but I wonder, in matters of, say, the Dez Bryant catch and what-not, if it's possible that simply having a "tie goes to the ballcarrier" rule would filter a lot of that out?

Was the QB's arm going forward when he fumbled or no? Too hard to tell? Tie goes to the ballcarrier.

Did he fully complete a catch? Just CAN'T make a decisive conclusion? Call goes to the ballcarrier.

Am I right, or is "tie goes to the runner" not quite as universally applicable as I think it maybe could be?
