EA Ultimate Team games have had all sorts of gray/black market scandals. One more in Fifa UT does not surprise lol.

————

If anyone actually wants to inquire further on any, recently I’ve beaten ME Trilogy, Jedi Fallen Order, Rift Apart, Ratchet and Clank 2016, the Ace Attorney Trilogy again, and Persona 5 Royale. Playing RE3 Remake (again), Dying Light, Kingdom Hearts 3, and Returnal. Trying to avoid shouting into the void for the most part.

I’d recommend Rift Apart and RE3 Remake.

Edit: Oh yeah I thought I’d blocked it out but i did most of ddlc+.

Don’t touch that one.

Really good except:

- Too short (~12 hours)
- Seriously needs fast travel
- Janky Platforming; the combat was good but I didn’t at all trust jumping

It’s basically an easier Dark Souls that tried to pad itself out with excruciating but (thankfully) unnecessary backtracking in the style of Metroidvania. The game really needed one or two more planets and a few more unique enemies. It also really needed a way to fast travel on the three larger levels. Or at least more GOOD shortcuts. This is the most frustrating part of the souls formula that they just did poorly. The game has some shortcuts but on the biggest planets they are completely insufficient. Despite enjoying it I can’t be **** to make a 2nd visit to more than half the game because there’s no fast way to get anywhere on the big planets. And once I get there I’d have to spend an equally long time getting back out. The only cosmetic items I noticed tbh were all story mandated; so more than half the collectibles didn’t even add to my experience. I’m not paying attention to my lightsaber grip, at all, in the course of normal gameplay.

The combat was very good (it’s literally jedi souls) but it got a bit repetitive about 2/3 of the way in. And the game didn’t have enough bosses. Off the top of my head you fight 1 major boss that isn’t some variation of the same lightsaber duel or a spammed common enemy later. Later lightsaber bosses get to have some force projectiles thrown in, but the game needed more unique monster boss fights that weren’t fancy sword fights. The “legendary beasts” don’t count bc they are just miniboss versions of normal dudes with buffed health/damage but no other changes. The same effect is accomplished by upping the difficulty slider. Literally.

I got it on sale for $20. I definitely recommend at that price. I wouldn’t recommend at $60.

Today is the last day of the sale; but PSN has a sale atm that includes Kingdom Hearts: All in One for less than $30. That gets you 1.5 + 2.5 Remix Collection, 2.8 Collection, and 3. Great family game series for young teens (10+) imo. Only one I’d rate super highly is 2, but for that price it’s Disney nostalgia overload.

If you ever want to see a stadium full of deep blue Democrat football fans howl for the blood of the home team; have the stadium announcer encourage them to please participate in a kneeling protest during the anthem.

True story. Scariest football crowd I’ve ever seen by an order of magnitude; and this particular stadium needs to maintain an armed police presence during home games. They were rooting for the away team all game; and those **** were one of our more hated rivals.

The kneeling **** is not something you should guilt or make fun of people for not doing. I would be afraid for my safety if I was in their position.

This is not a particularly hard challenge for someone capable of doing an any% run. The main difficulty is not messing up the boss rush; but this sounds like a <1 hr speedrun.

Not exactly. They didn’t give up their medals
https://www.oklahoman.com/article/54778 ... pic-medals

And the IOC still lists them as medal winners
https://olympics.com/en/olympic-games/m ... s/200m-men

But that’s all beside the point: they won :teach:

No, the IOC wanted to punish them, but the USOC wouldn't have it and refused to play ball so the IOC just kicked them out of the 68 games which was meaningless as they had already competed but the return of the gold and bronze was never considered.

And those two pictures are nothing alike that bitch is blind. Who is that anyways and who said she could have her own meme!!!!! :)

So Nestle changed the name of a very old chocolate bar here in Chile coz it could be offensive to current sensibilities... people were arguing the same old song... bla bla bla bla..... but the memes... oh boi the memes, they took every product out there that could have double meanings and made a fool out of this whole thing it was hilarious... sadly the whole joke would be lost in translation :(
