  • The big problem with AAA games today

    Wow dude, you got so off topic every time. We were talking about EA and their latest games.

    Then you go and try to prove your point by bringing up EA games before they started adding loot boxes. and you go on to try to use non EA games....

    This thread is about AAA games today.

    Most ea games today are shit because they focus more on selling you loot boxes than making games fun and innovative.

    Cuphead is great, its not AAA though.

    Also dead space 3 was forced by EA to include micro transactions and to be more action based . It was the worst of the 3.

    Also lots of companies can compare to the games that EA had done. Capcom for one. Has been making games just as long if not longer and has just as many recognizable franchises if not more.

    So sticking with AAA games today.... not any game since the 80s....

    EA is making bad decisions and creating some shit games. Such as destiny 2 and COD WW2 and battlefront 2/

    Also they made a terrible need for speed game recently.

    EA fired the creator of plants VS zombies, because he didnt want to make the sequel a pay to win game......

    So i know its hard for you to do, but stick to the topic. You can make your own thread about games from the 80s if you want, but this is about "AAA games today"

    so yes, in the context of AAA games today, my opinion is that most are absolute shit.

  • What did you Accomplish in Gaming Today?

    Season 3 of 2017 finished up for StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void this past Tuesday, and I'm very pleased with how I did.

    This was my first full Season that I played, and I finished in Gold League Tier 1 and I was 9th in my Division. I played exactly 100 games, all as Random, and had a 53% win percentage. Protoss was my best Race, Terran was my worst.

    The new patch launched on Tuesday which did some big design overhauls for the game, and its also free-to-play now so the player-base has almost doubled.

    Sadly I'm 2-4 in Season 4 thus far, but it's still early in and I'll turn that around. Started in Gold League Tier 2. With luck, I'll get back up to Tier 1 in a few weeks.

  • The big problem with AAA games today

    @Doos I'd generally consider a "AAA" game as a game that was made by a well known (whether or not their reputation is good) or leading developer with a top tier budget. To me, "AAA" gaming isn't a quality thing, its a money and recognition thing. Plenty of "AAA" games have been complete garbage. While I do consider it a buzzword, it does have some meaning IMO, though that meaning doesn't necessarily have an impact on the games considered "AAA". It's kind of like calling the big movies from big studios "blockbusters", more a hype and budget related thing, and less about quality really.

    Now, with that said, I've never cared is a game is considered to be "AAA" or not, I play what interests me, skip what doesn't, and generally try to stay away from hype trains. I find that by doing this, I'm fairly rarely disappointed with games.

  • Screen Flickering

    Could be any of the new things you introduced the the setup. Could be the TV itself.

    First thing is to disconnect every thing and start adding things again and see what the issue is. Could be the the reciever.

    Could be the speakers right under the tv. Ive had issues with speakers doing funky things when to close to other electronics.

    also try the tv on its own and see it its a tv issue.
