    [–] S/O Nick Cannon NYstate 1 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    I've been legit arguing with people about this on Twitter for hours. People say everything from: "But Kevin is talking about abusing his son for being gay..." To "Well Amy and Sarah are friends of the LGBT community..." To "Kevin Hart dosen't have an audience that supports gay rights..." To my personal favorite: "Well because they support gay rights, people know that when Sarah Silverman calls someone a f*ggot, they're just joking..."

    [–] How confident are you that Kojima will deliver a great game in Death Stranding? NYstate 1 points ago in PS4

    Yeah I was thinking about some huge director as someone pointed out Kuberick would've been a better choice!

    [–] How confident are you that Kojima will deliver a great game in Death Stranding? NYstate -4 points ago in PS4

    Yeah Kojima is the closest thing to a Spielberg we have. We have to trust that he'll deliver on something we've never seen before. Is the concept insane? Sure but think about Metal Gear, what a ride! Vocal cord parasite that give you powers? Nanomachines? People that breathe through the skin? Clones? Viruses that target specific targets? A "vampire"? A crazed ex President Of The US wanting to take over the world? Giant Mechs? And this is just a few of the things Metal Gear throw at the player.

    [–] Street Fighter V is going to have in-game ads, and penalize players who turn them off. NYstate 66 points ago in PS4

    Yeah the article says:

    Capcom is introducing "sponsored content" to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on December 11th to promote its purchasable bundles, costumes and the Pro Tour. You'll see them on costumes, in certain stages and on pre-fight loading screens. 

    Nothing major actually

    My favorite PS game would have to be Lunar Silver Star Story Complete for PS1.

    I'm glad you like it, it's one of my favorite JRPG's of all time. I played through it on The Sega CD and it was a totally 90's JRPG complete, with a total 90's game opening song. Which I still remember all of these years later. Lol

    If you love that, you should definitely track down the sequal Lunar Eternal Blue complete in PS1. It also had one of the best epilogues that I can remember, it's totally skippable as well. I stumbled upon it completely by accident, it was the 1990's, online wikis weren't around then.

    [–] [Giveaway] God of War NYstate 1 points ago in PS4

    One that sticks out and my brain the most is Metal Gear solid on PS1 it was the first game that had salad with voice acting, great boss battle battles like fighting Psycho Mantis and that you have that you have to actually take the out controller and place it in a second controller slot to actually beat the boss, incredible!

    [–] Nick Cannon defends Kevin Hart by exposing homophobic tweets by other comedians that did not face any backlash. NYstate 3 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    I think both the good and the bad thing about social media is: Everybody wants to have a voice, and I think the problem is with that above comment, if what you're saying is true, is that that person was trying to say: "Oh yeah well what about me? You got a problem I do too!"

    [–] I’m going to kill it at the office sweater party this year NYstate 13 points ago in funny

    That reminds me of a joke:

    A blonde goes into a dry cleaner to drop off a shirt, when she does the attendant says: "Thank you, come again...!" Without missing a beat the blonde replies, "No, ice cream this time!"

    [–] Nick Cannon defends Kevin Hart by exposing homophobic tweets by other comedians that did not face any backlash. NYstate 5 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    Well I'm black and I love Lisa Lampanelli. What people have to understand is the difference between a joke to be funny and a joke to be harmful.

    One of my favorite bits she tells a story where she accidentally gets pregnant by a black guy, she become distraught and calls her brother for encouragement and he exclaims: "Well I'll be a monkey's uncle!"

    That's the context, it's a joke, meant to be funny by an envelope pushing comedian. When Rosanne Barr said it, she was not a joking, she was 100% serious, there's the line.

    [–] The Outer Worlds isn’t a Microsoft game, even though it’s buying Obsidian NYstate 1 points ago in Games

    That's the million dollar question. If the game is successful as everyone think it is, it would be crazy if Microsoft made the sequels Xbox only.

    [–] [Video] New video for The Outer Worlds from Game Informer NYstate 1 points ago in PS4

    I don't think Microsoft cares, I mean sure they'd want to sell as many Xbox's as possible but if Microsoft had to choose between having 50 million Scarletts sold or having 100 million + Game pass subscribers, they'd probably go with the latter. These guys make next to nothing on hardware.

    Hmmmm...I think you're right. Xbox was long about getting a Microsoft into your home. Game pass could be the Trojan horse that Microsoft is looking for. If they got Sony on board that would be the ultimate 50 yard touchdown pass.

    [–] [Video] New video for The Outer Worlds from Game Informer NYstate 1 points ago in PS4

    Except maybe if 2 conditions are met

    -Only MS first party games, basically Gears, Forza, Fable, Outer World 2 whatever else, no third party games since that would eat into sales of 3rd party games on PS4/PS5

    That would probably hurt Xbox sales but be a good business decision on Microsoft's part. Possibly not because it would still be streaming only so the adoption rate would probably be less.

    -A larger cut, at least 50/50 of the subscription revenue on that platform.

    Also a good idea business wise.

    [–] [Video] New video for The Outer Worlds from Game Informer NYstate 1 points ago in PS4

    That's why I brought up Mass Effect because this is a virtually identicle scenario where MS had publishing rights for ME but EA swooped them up and now own Mass, DA, Jade Empire etc.

    I still say depends on the deal already in place, if there is one. If they're only a one game deal fine, the sequel is possibly only coming Microsoft's consoles and PC. If not, it's up to Microsoft to chose to have the possible sequel on other platforms. I'm sure Microsoft won't announce they're plans for a sequel until they're sure of the success of The Outer Worlds, anything less would be suicide for the game and hurt the chances of a possible sequel. If the game is wildly successful, I'm not sure Microsoft is going to want to make the sequel Xbox exclusive. That would not only get them a fair amount of hate, but that may cause them to look like a bad guy. But I could be wrong.

    [–] The Outer Worlds isn’t a Microsoft game, even though it’s buying Obsidian NYstate 2 points ago in Games

    I think the excitement is that Obsidian is making another RPG that's not an isometric one. Something that many have been asking for, so can you blame people for being excited?

    Me personally, I'm glad that someone is challenging Bethesda in the 3D sci-fi RPG space. Bethesda has been unchallenged in that space for far too long. Being unchallenged has made Bethesda lazy and complacent. Why fix the bugs FO4 when you have the only big budget science fiction, action rpg around? Why put enough money into FO76 to actually make it work when people will buy it anyway because what else are you going to buy to scratch that itch? Who else could challenge Bethesda but Bioware or Obsidian? We saw Bioware fail spectacularly with Andromeda, and they look like they're not too eagar to return to Mass Effect anytime soon. So who's left? Obsidian the only company who made a successful Fallout game that's not Bethesda. They're probably the only ones who has the talent, the clout and the ability to pull it off something like this. I mean who else could?

    TL;DR people are excited because Obsidian is in the big budget RPG space again and they've been missed.

    That Polygon article got shat on in the comments for being clickbait. Right now Obsidian thus Microsoft own the IP. Take Two has publishing rights for the first game and only the first game.

    Yes. But how do we know this? They could've signed a two or three game deal. Remember when the game was being made, Obsidian was still independent we don't know the terms of the deal.

    Or a 10 game deal, or a 100 game deal. That's the thing, at this point were speculating that Take Two has any rights to any sequels which is unlikely, otherwise they probably would of wanted to own the IP

    Also I highly doubt Microsoft would of bought Obsidian if they knew Obsidian would be locked into making multiplats....especially for an IP that they own.

    Microsoft bought a studio not a game. Look at it like this. Say you have a company that makes 1 or 2 games on your competitor, so what? That still money for you. Isn't Office on Mac?

    Think about it like this: Obsidian made this game and it sells great on all platforms. Great more money for you! Your AAA game sold well on a console with 80 millions users and on PC with 100 million, more money for you. Now Obsidian does another game, that one is exclusive to Xbox. Now you can advertise is as: "From the studio who made Fallout NV and the 5 million (or whatever) seller The Outer Worlds...." We never know maybe The Outer Worlds sequel might be cross gen in 2022. I'm sure Microsoft and Sony is still going to have some kind of games on those consoles. There are about 125 million current gen consoles.

    How would they make a sequel to an IP they don't own?

    I didn't know that Obsidian owned the IP. Good to know

    [–] The Outer Worlds isn’t a Microsoft game, even though it’s buying Obsidian NYstate 6 points ago in Games

    I said on another thread, It may depends on the deal in place. If it's a 3 game deal, is Obsidian may be contract legally obligated to make the sequels multiplatform. Maybe there's a deal in place with Microsoft that Obsidian has to finish Outer Worlds and maybe have to have someone else make the sequel, kinda like The Fractured But Whole.

    [–] [Video] New video for The Outer Worlds from Game Informer NYstate 1 points ago in PS4

    Yeah I hated that part couldn't they just pause the video and talk then resume it afterwards?

    [–] [Video] New video for The Outer Worlds from Game Informer NYstate 2 points ago in PS4

    Not necessarily. According to the Polygon article, The Outer Worlds isn’t a Microsoft game, even though it’s buying Obsidian:

    “Wait a minute,” wondered several folks out loud, “didn’t Microsoft buy those guys just last month?” We wondered the same thing. So I asked Leonard Boyarsky, co-game director and co-creator of the Fallout franchise, about it during our interview earlier this week.

    “Microsoft came and looked at a bunch of different stuff we were doing, and this game [The Outer Worlds] was one of them,” Boyarsky said. “But we mostly spend — well — we’ve exclusively been working with Private Division on this.”

    The acquisition really hasn’t been a part of what we’re doing at all [on The Outer Worlds],” Boyarsky continued. “We’ve just been working on this game [with] the great folks over at Private Division. None of that is going to change.”

    It depends on the deal in place. If it's a 3 game deal, is Obsidian may be contract legally obligated to make the sequels multiplatform. Maybe there's a deal in place with Microsoft that Obsidian has to finish Outer Worlds and maybe have to have someone else make the sequel, kinda like The Fractured But Whole.

    [–] [Video] New video for The Outer Worlds from Game Informer NYstate 2 points ago in PS4

    My guess is if it's successful, the sequels will come to PS4, I mean why not? Microsoft is about making money not making exclusives. Sure they will eventually have exclusives, probably pretty big ones too but some will never change. Like if there's ever a sequal to Minecraft.
