    Gunplay is great too. The hit detection and damage model are overhauled from the first Dicefront and feel great. Now blasters have set ranges where they are effective, no E-11 sniping across the map anymore. TTK is pretty high but not too high. This means even if someone sneaks on you, you have the chance to retaliate and Overall accuracy is more important than rate of fire outside of point blank ranges. Gunfights are more skill based, which is good. Vehicle controls are a bit wonky, mostly from being too sensitive. Massive improvement form the thrash that was Dicefront 1. Heroes aren't as disgustingly OP as they used to, but still strong. Still can be exploited via the Battle Point system.

    Now, the lootcrates and the fact that ALL of the progression is tied to these rng boxes is absolutely unforgivable. Even for a free to play mobile game this type of economy is shit, never mind a full priced AAA game. And you can buy them with cash.

    If all you got from the was skins or other customization items, it would be crappy but somewhat acceptable. The fact that all the blasters, star cards and other equipment are locked behind those, unless you grind for Scrap, currency, which you can only get from the damn boxes, is absolutely unacceptable. Oh, and you can get ridiculous buffs from those Star Cards. PAY TO WIN. F*** EM.


    On a more positive note, I bought Saints Row 4 with all of it's DLC when it was on sale on Steam. And quite frankly, the game is absolutely amazing. It's insane, vulgar, vile, funny, witty and superfun. Best Soundtrack, Best characters and best superpowers.

    I performed a bit of digging, and I found this video that addresses Battlefront II's loot boxes:

    Dude I love the Saints Row franchise. To me it's better than GTA in some ways. My favorite part of SR4 is the who cut scene when you get the power armor and everything that follows. Especially the part were Stan Bush's The Touch is playing. I laughed so freaking hard during that.

    Re: Video Games

    Been playing STALKER: Call of Pripyat and I just finished it this past weekend. I decided to play it with mods seeing as I already played the prequel, Shadow of Chernobyl, as is several years ago. Went with the Arsenal Overhaul 3.1 combined mod and it was a really fun experience. A bit broken especially once you amass a large amount of rubles since nearly every single gun is available to purchase outright, but it didn't take away any entertainment value. Game itself was pretty good, although not as action packed as the first game. Not to say there isn't any action, it's just more focused so you get parts where it's some action and then parts where it's all action. Kinda nice they ended the story in an open manner, too.

    I'm replaying it again this week, this time with a different set of mods and the experience is different again in a good way. I think this is why the STALKER series will always be one of the best FPS games ever for me.

    Well now, color me intrigued: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/new...switch/.124255.

    Oh, how I have longed for this series to return to its WWII, turn-based strategy roots after the disappointment of Valkyria Revolution.

    Based Belgians. It's about damn time this issue is properly discussed and hopefully some actually comes out of this.

    I thought this would be one of those things where it'd peter out after awhile, but seeing government intervention, didn't expect that at all. This is one of the times where I welcome it. Good on the Belgians.

    Also someone in the Hawaii house of representatives has spoken out about them too.

    Now, when you said loot boxes, I though you meant those boxes of merch you get in the mail every month.
