Looks like that Ataribox thing is opening for preorders/crowdfunding on Thursday. Hopefully they'll have added some details about what they're selling before asking people to part with their cash


 
 
 

The bearings have started to go on a couple of my case fans and no time to have some decent ones shipped this side of crimbo :( Headphones for the rest of the month I think

 
 
 

The PSX Keynote/definitely not a Sony Direct is tonight 2000PST or 0400GMT :( Only an hour long atleast.

 
 
 

Probably worth five minutes of your time, especially if you're in the US.



 
 
 

Oh EA, you silly sausages. You just can't help yourselves can you.



 
 
 

Well it looks slick. Sure, it's not even remotely useful for anything except early Atari games, but atleast it takes a good photo, I guess?


 
 
 

Jesus Christ EA, your paltry in game rewards system is pegged primarily to how long a match is? That's one way to make sure the plebs aren't sucking down too many free lootboxes



 
 
 

Real heroes don't wear capes. Though I reckon if you sent him one, he'd wear it.



 
 
 

I'm not logged in using the Qtoid link and Gaj if I click the CBlogs link if that helps

 
 
 
 

Looks like someone made BBC News again. Congratulations EA!


 
 
 

Happy Thanksgiving folks, make sure you go to town on that turkey!

 
 
 

Oh yeah, Final Fantasy Pokemon hit Steam yesterday. So, that's a thing you can buy if you want.


 
 
 

Hawaii Democratic representative Chris Lee added some detail on Reddit about the video. I'll stick it in the comments since links in QPs don't work out well.



 
 
 

"Belgium says loot boxes are gambling, wants them banned in Europe" - PCGamer (Link in the comments)


 
 
 

"Star Wars Battlefront 2 physical sales down 60% on Battlefront 1"


 
 
 
 
 

I tried that Dual Gear demo. It's pretty much Valkyria Chronicles with wanzers, and that's all kinds of awesome. Hopefully it doesn't wind up as broken as Valkyria Chronicles.


 
 
 

And I thought Youtube Copyright strikes were bad


 
 
 

I've been playing through Front Mission 5 again this week and now I'm torn. I really want a new Front Mission, but it's ripe for exploitation with lootbox bullshit.


 
 
 

So in the middle of senate hearings investigating how the power and influence wielded by social media companies can be abused, some genius at Twitter decided it'd be hilarious to ban Trumps account. That's just not smart. Even for Twitter.

 
 
 

First day off of my annual Halloween/Birthday break and my trusty PS2 immediately dies. Onward to Silicon Heaven old friend.


 
 
 
 

Another short video of the upcoming Phantom Brigade from Tetragon Works. It's still very early in development, but fans of the likes of Front Mission and XCOM should keep an eye on it.
