@cjduke: Yeah, don't get me wrong, I know my first experience with Life is Strange was through GBeast, but it was still one of my favorite game related "experiences" of that year. If that makes any sense. It has its flaws, but so do most things.
You know, oddly enough, I actually played a couple matches with Scorch earlier today, and was doing pretty well. Not amazing, but decently. Maybe fewer people are playing Monarch, or I just got lucky, I dunno. I haven't really read any of the patch notes.
It really is too bad that Xbox just doesn't have any exclusives that I want to play. Well, they did have Sunset Overdrive, but that's more on par with a Ratchet and Clank level exclusive, maybe even sub-that, if you get what I mean (never mind they're both Insomniac games). It's not a Bloodborne, or an Uncharted 4. I know I complain about not having money (which isn't wrong), but if Microsoft shelled out to have From make the next new Souls game exclusive, I'd find the money. But, at least for now, it seems like all they do is double down on the same franchises. Maybe Crackdown 2 will be amazing. More likely it'll just be a newer version of Crackdown, and that's not enough.
I also got the D.Va skin, which I had to pay money for because the event was about to end. And Bastion's and Tracer's, but those aren't as cool, to me at least.
@humanity: I would say I had more fun with Horizon overall, but outside of the fun combat, Horizon didn't really feel like it was doing anything especially ambitious (graphics aside, but impressive graphics is expected from Sony first party games at this point). Prey, on the other hand, feels like it's really going for it in a way that most games don't, you know? Even if it doesn't always stick the landing. I hope that now that the summer "lull" of games is upon us, maybe some more people will give Prey a shot. It's certainly been on sale enough recently that the price is more enticing.
I remember liking the TV series! Also, I was in middle school at the time, and I liked a lot of bad things then, so don't take my word for anything! Christopher Lloyd was in it, and it features "Mix Master," which...Well, I won't spoil it.
Having watched Tremors 1 and 5 within the last year (for better or worse, none of the others in recent years), I mostly agree with your thoughts on those. Tremors is great! Tremors 5 is terrible! OOF. I mean, how desperate for money must Michael Gross be if he agreed to be in a movie where he gets peed on (multiple times? (I've tried to block it from my memory)) by a lion?
