Damn, that's really awful. I remember him reasonably well from back in the day, but never really knew him personally. That's way too young. What a shame.

Geez.  I thought I'd be the one to take my leave first in our group.  So young; so very sad.  Please, keep us posted if you can.

General Discussion / It appears Cool_Gamer1 has died
« Last post by idolminds on Yesterday at 05:39:38 PM »
I was seeing posts on my FB timeline about his friends leaving memorial messages for Jerry Cao. It took a little bit to figure out who in our group it was but it's Cool_Gamer1. He was only 28. I don't know what happened and didn't know him well enough to feel comfortable asking. If someone says on FB I'll update here.

General Gaming / Re: Consoles back on the rise?

I still have plenty of friends that play on console, so if I upgade my PC it will be mostly for PC exclusives. In the near future, I primarily want to play the new WoW expansion. I may just upgrade everything else, and I think I can get my hands on a hand-me-down 970. That should be pleny for WoW, expecially considering I've been playing it up through it's current expansion on a Phenom II and a GTC 460.

If GPUs drop at some point, then I could pick up something new and a higher rez monitor.

General Gaming / Re: Battlefield V - Update: DICE is prototyping a Battle Royale Mode
« Last post by W7RE on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 07:41:55 PM »
Battlefield at least makes more sense than the other games rumored to have BR mode. I've heard Battlefield, Call of Duty, RDR2, Dying Light (only 6 player though), and I'm sure a few others that I'm forgetting. Battlefield at least already supports large maps and large player counts.

As soon as a competent developer can do what PUBG is doing, but without the bugs and poor gunplay, PUBG is dead. I enjoy the game and I hate to see it die off, but it's success is based on a serious lack of competition. It's exactly what happened to DayZ when H1Z1 came out, and H1Z1 when PUBG came out. The fanbase moves to the newer, better playing game. At least with Fortnite it's different enough that it and PUBG can coexist. I know a lot of people are already tired of hearing BR rumors for so many games, but I'm honestly excited about the possibility of getting one from a more competent developer. Everything other than Fortnite has been smaller devs and indie teams trying to build something on a small budget.

Yay! I got a job. I start next Monday. It's a luxury real estate tech company with a pretty amazing (and big) design team. Ended up being a lot more pay than my last job, and free health care and lunches provided as well. I'll have to travel to Philadelphia every few weeks in the beginning to art direct some designers in the satellite office there, but that should be fun exploring Philly in short bursts.

Feels good... I'm glad I didn't have to spend all of my severance money (I stayed in a lot, working on freelance to offset that). I am gainfully employed with an awesome company now!

Honestly... I think with the Battlefield team they could really blow this out of the water. Between PUBG and Fortnite, there's a sweet spot in between the two that could maximize the best of both worlds. Sure EA could just make another BF sequel (don't listen to gpw, he never played BF One), or they could put their talent and financial backing to good use and make a game that has huge space maps and a variety of combat vehicles. But I know what you're thinking, "Sure PUBG has had bug issues and it still feels like early access, EA would make something just as bad with their track record." How about an inventory interface that isn't complete fucking trash? Or perhaps a better looking environment that doesnt feel like a setup fake bomb testing village every where you go? Perhaps give some better background or story setup to keep coming back to? Hopefully they can keep loot crates away after they learned their lesson, but I think BFV could be extremely promising if they really capitalize on the common shortcomings of the battle royale craze.
