  1. Since TellTale is producing a massive amount of ''seasons'' games, I feel this thread might be warranted to just generally talk about all the announcements and whatnot. Maybe once it's released we can make additional threads for the respective game depending on the popularity here. Sooo, a plethora of games are upcoming. Here are the trailers of the four running ''series'' that TellTale is making... Tales of The Borderlands: (Borderlands 2.5) Game of Thrones: The Wolf Among Us: (Fables) (Thread: ) The Walking Dead Season 2: (Thread: ) Like usual, I am completely hype for all four series and I go crazy every time I finish an episode and I need to wait over a month for the next one. And with the addition of Game of Thrones AND a Borderlands game, it's going to be an insane point and click year for me.
  2. So the U.S. Open starts tomorrow. I'm not sure who I see winning it. Spieth has been so good this year, but he's a notorious second placer, so I'll say he comes close, but doesn't get it. Any who, let's discuss!
  3. Stargate was a very interesting franchise. It originally began as a movie starring Russel Crowe and the pervert from The Secretary, and it was a fun, b-movie sort of space romp where the bad guy was the character from the Crying Game but with a completely different surprise under their clothes. Then, Stargate became a TV show starring MacGuyver and it ran for eight years, then they recruited the guy from Farscape and put him in the Stargate and then things got rocky and confusing. Most recently, Stargate did what all old franchises have done lately, they had a reboot injected with strong, powerful female characters. It was called Stargate: Origins and tells a tale of Katherine Langford which someone is supposed to still be canon (I haven't actually watched it yet, so I can't tell you if it's any good or not, but it's a thing if you want to find it). Anyway, as a way of getting people hyped for new Stargate, the people behind old Stargate have been uploading some feature length episodes in HD to youtube, commercial free. They have uploaded some great episodes, feature length mini-action movies, some great character dramas and some awesome stories. Today they uploaded Sunday. Sunday is not one of those good episodes. Sunday is bad. I hate Sunday. I wish everyone who made Sunday steps on a Lego. Because I enjoy ruining people's days and I want other people to know my pain, I present to you: Sunday.
  4. For the racing boffins that are going to be following it in part, or in total. I'll personally be hoping to make it 24h this year after just barely failing to last year. It's the second round of the World Endurance Championship 'Super Season', a season that started last May at Spa Francorchamps with an LMP1 from the venerable two time F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso (and team). A season that will run two whole calendar years as opposed to one (due to ongoing changes with WEC and the future of endurance racing) Now the race touches down at the legendary Le Mans racing circuit for the 86th time, and whilst the LMP1 race is Toyota's to win, the other classes are as competitive as they've always been with a plethora of manufacturers and private teams competing for class wins, and at least 1 position on the general podium! A full grid of 60 cars will be starting the race, 10 LMP1's, 20 LMP2's, 17 GTEPro, and 13 GTEAm. And with how fickle a 24h race is, anything can and will happen during the race. Nobody is guaranteed a victory, not even the dominant Toyota team that is the only factory team in LMP1 this year. Qualifying Results: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_24_Hours_of_Le_Mans#Qualifying Notable Drivers: LMP1: Fernando Alonso (2x F1 WDC), André Lotterer (3x Le Mans Winner), Bruno Senna (Nephew of Ayrton, former F1 racer), Alex Brundle (Son of Martin), Kamui Kobayashi (Former F1 Racer, Le Mans podium), José Maria Lopez (3x WTCC Champ), Seb Buemi (Former F1, Le Mans Podium), Kazuki Nakajima (2x Super Formula, Le Mans podium), Jenson Button (1x F1 WDC), Vitali Petrov (Form. F1 driver) LMP2: Paul di Resta, Will Stevens, Jean Eric-Vergne, Giedo van der Garde, Jan Lammers (62 years old, former F1 driver FROM THE 70s!), Pastor Maldonado (Legend), Juan Pablo Montoya, Ho-Pin Tung (2017 LMP2 Le Mans winner), Felipe Nasr GTEPro: Toni Vilander (2x GTPro Le mans Winner), Antonio Giovinazzi, Jan Magnussen (4x Le Mans class winner, father of Kevin), Tony Kanaan, Sebastian Bourdais, Scott Dixon, Earl Bamber (2x LMP1 winner), Nick Tandy (1x LMP1 winner), Nicki Thiim (GTEPro WEC champ, Twitch streamer) GTEAm: Giancarlo Fischella, Pedro Lamy, Mathias Lauda (son of Niki) -- Broadcasting: For people interested in following Le Mans.

  5. Well, like the thread title so eloquently says. What's some of the craziest shit you've come across in video games. Whether it's a game scene, or a gameplay function, or heck, an entire freaking game as a whole being just so ridiculous. Maybe it was so bad that it became good, or that there was a huge dissonance from one moment to the next. Basically, what are moments in games that have stuck with you over the years, maybe has become an inside joke just because it was so memorably weird and crazy. This ain't a thread for things that have stuck with you because it was simply great (Ex. The Last of Us giving you feels). This is about the weird/funny/crazy crap that has found its way into gaming. For example, mid 90s early 3D game Overblood. A pretty bland PS1 Resident Evil clone, with god awful acting. And one of the most hammy over-acted 'emotional' scenes i've ever come across.
  6. Hi all, Wowee the end of the year approaches so fast! It's time to vote for the 2015 Game of the Year! Rules are as follows: 1: We are nominating a maximum of ten entries per member. The title in position 1 receives 10 points, less 1 point for each game down until 1 point for position 10. You may vote for fewer than 10 games. You may not distribute your points for positions not filled among games you did vote for. 2: I am using the following point weighting system: The total number of points received by a title, multiplied by the number of times it was voted for. Ties will be broken by number of 1st place votes first and by total nominations second. This is a slight divergence from previous years, as last year games had their scores negatively impacted by a number of low nominations, so i'm trialing this method. Happy to discuss this in private message if required. Quick example: 3: All games released since the creation of the last voting thread (8 December 2014) are eligible. I'll be using the earliest release date listed in Wikipedia for this purpose. Expansion packs/DLC will ONLY make a game eligible if it changes the core game that was released. In this case it will be considered a standalone title, so to speak. Happy to discuss this via PM too if you think it needs to be changed. 4: Animated discussion and debate in this thread is allowed and encouraged. Please try and keep any debate in at the least a seperate paragaph to your list so I can notice them, and if you're the type who likes to explain their choices, by all means do so - but try and use some formatting wherever you can so I can again distinguish choices much more easily. Bolded Titles/Rankings are preferred. 5: Nominations will close in a couple of weeks, likely on the 25th of December, Perth time depending on my schedule. Votes may be edited up until that date, no need to post to let me know. I'll not be recording votes until then so feel free to edit away until I announce close of nominations. The list itself will be posted between Xmas and New Years' 6: I would prefer you to indicate with your first choice how you are formatting your list. In the absence of clear instructions, I will consider your FIRST LISTED title as the HIGHEST RANKING title. Examples in the spoiler box below for minimum clear formatting Other than that, go nuts!
  7. So the Woman's World Cup starts tomorrow, with hosts Canada facing China. Anyone else going to be watching? I'm supporting Sweden personally, them and Canada.
  8. So I need a list of challenges for a YouTube channel I'm getting ready to launch and you loons are just the lot for help. I need some ideas for gaming challenges that could potentially be done in ten minutes or less. I'll then make a master list, throw it to Random.org, take the top one and make a video from it. Rinse and repeat until the milk's gone dry, Murphy. The criteria: 1. Has to be on PC or PS4. 2. Has to be reasonably feasible. Kill three soldiers in TF2? Possible, given the right circumstances. Build a city of 1,000,000 people in Cities: Skylines? GFY 3. If I don't own the game, I'll do my best to grab it and do the challenge later. Promise. Pinky promise, even. 4. Multiplayer's cool, as well. If you want to jump in, that can be arranged. More than happy to throw out credit where credit is due on the video. So, help?
  9. Saw that we didn't have one for this year yet, so I thought it best to get one started before the Aussie Open starts on Monday (Sunday if you're in other parts of the world). I'll be posting my predictions after the full draw comes out, but just to start the discussion; who will win?
  10. 76 total games (an increase on last year!), 914 total points allocated has left us with our top 25 games of the year! We'll start with some honourable mentions. In spoilers for those who don't want any spoilers. I'll be doing this in blocks, btw. #25 MLB 14: The Show 84.5 Weighted points, 2 nominations. Tie broken over Assassin's Creed: Unity on (previously unpublished) third tiebreaker - highest place among votes #t-23 P.T. (Silent Hills) 100 Weighted points, 1 nomination. Tie cannot be split by virtue of identical votes #t-23 Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 100 Weighted points, 1 nomination. Tie cannot be split by virtue of identical votes #22 Bravely Default 108 Weighted points, 3 nominations #21 Shovel Knight 120.3r Weighted points, 3 nominations.
  11. Hi all, The end of another year approaches and it is time for us to reflect upon gaming's highs and lows. It's time to vote for the 2014 Game of the Year! Rules are as follows: 1: We are nominating a maximum of ten entries per member. The title in position 1 receives 10 points, less 1 point for each game down until 1 point for position 10. You may vote for fewer than 10 games. You may not distribute your points for positions not filled among games you did vote for. Lukie, I am talking to you, voting for Don't Starve 10 times. 2: I am using the following point weighting system: The total number of points received by a title, multiplied by the average number of points per occasion it was voted for. Ties will be broken by number of 1st place votes first and by total nominations second. I feel this system is best suited to making fine gradations of close vote-getters. Happy to discuss this in private message if required. Quick example: Title A receives two first place votes and a seventh place vote. It receives 192 points under my system (24 total points multiplied by an average points per nomination of 8) 3: All games released since the creation of the last voting thread (2 December 2013) are eligible. I'll be using the first release date listed in Wikipedia for this purpose. Expansion packs/DLC should be considered as a standalone title (Brave New World for example should be considered on its own merits) and will make a game eligible if it changes the core game that was released. Happy to discuss this via PM too if you think it needs to be changed. 4: Animated discussion and debate in this thread is allowed and encouraged. Please try and keep any debate in at the least a seperate paragaph to your list so I can notice them, and if you're the type who likes to explain their choices, by all means do so - but try and use some formatting wherever you can so I can again distinguish choices much more easily. 5: Nominations will close in a couple of weeks, likely on the 19th of December depending on my schedule. Votes may be edited up until that date, no need to post to let me know. I'll not be recording votes until then so feel free to edit away until I announce close of nominations. Other than that, go nuts!
  12. Since we're all World Cup fevery, time to follow up this joyous thread: Same script as last time, post or PM me your e-mails and I'll send the form over probably next week sometime. Happy to take any suggestions on rule changes or owt else. Plubby has a title to defend.
  13. http://youtu.be/q5eLpbEl6Lo Hello again, ladies and gents. It's time...for Major EWB Baseball. Yahoo will once again serve as our league de rigueur, as it's fantasy baseball system treated us quite well last year. We will not be running a keeper league, as we will start from scratch with a Fantasy Draft. The date for the draft will be just a few days after we settle on teams. We'll need at least four, but can go with up to 20 teams. Last year's owners have been e-mailed with an invitation to return. General rules are as follows: 1. Minimum of 15 innings pitched per week. 2. 3 day waiver rule. 3. 3 days to vote on trades. 4. League will start on March 22nd. 5. Playoffs will the top six teams. 6. Roster minimums are as such: 1 of each position player (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF) 1 Utility spot (can be any position player...think of it as your DH) 2 Starting Pitchers 2 Relievers 3 Utility Pitcher spots (any pitchers. Some people fill these with relievers in order to rack up saves. Others will use starters to help keep their Team ERA low or wins/strikeouts/etc. up. Your call.) 2 DL spots for injured players 4 Bench spots (most will use these for position players, but any player can be benched) This makes for 20 roster spots with two DL spots. 7. Scoring categories will remain the same. We will remain with the Head-to-Head (Each Category) scoring style. 8. The Draft will begin on Feb. 22nd, giving us a month to finish up before the season starts. The order will be selected at random, then continue in a serpentine order. For the first five rounds, there will be a 24 hour time limit. From the sixth round on, 12 hours. You can also PM me a list of picks if you won't be available in time. You can also trade draft picks for other players, if you wish. Both owners will have to confirm the deal to me via PM. Once a team reaches their roster limit (20 total), they can choose to forego their remaining picks or work out a trade. League page can be accessed by clicking here (as long as you are in the league) or by this address: http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/ewb14 This post will be updated occasionally for different videos, rules clarifications, draft tips, and other things.

  14. Paitent #1: Plubby's Shot Shy Stade Rennais Young Plubster is struggling in the depths of Ligue 1 with his Stade Rennais team. His team usually dominates possession both home and away but they don't create many, if any, clear goalscoring opportunities and take very few shots, usually less than ten per match. Let's have a look at a typical match... He's set up with a standard 4-5-1/4-3-3 as is the fashion these days. Montpellier are set up very defensively, especially for a side at home, so even if Rennes dominate possession and sit in the Montpellier half, clear chances are going to be hard to fashion purely due to numerical disadvantage. The two in the middle play as BBM/S and DLP/S and the wide players are both W/A and the striker is TM/A. What I would suggest when facing a team playing wing backs is to push your own full backs forward to try and pin them back in their own half. The match finishes a 1-1 draw, the first half was cagey, even and goalless. Montpellier took the lead after 60 minutes when Ramsteijn lost his man in the area and Rennes scored a late equaliser when Kanoute broke free and a fortunate deflection fell to sub Romil. The stats are pretty grim reading offensively, barely any shots, one good chance and too high a percentage of shots from long range. Possession is good and the passing percentages are good, though defensive passing should be higher because of the lack of pressure from the opposition in your own half. The Rennes midfield and full backs had a ton of possession, Emerson the left back was 91 for 98 attempts and none of the midfielders were below 86% completion, which is good but if there is no end product, ultimately pointless. It also suggests that the midfield spends a lot of time passing amongst themselves and the radar view shows that the majority of their passes are sideways or backwards. The real standout stat and the root of Plubby's problem is the cross completion, 6% or 2 completed from 29 attempts. That's 27 cycles of possession wasted with zero end product. It's clear that to create 29 crossing opportunites, the wingers are seeing plenty of the ball and in the right areas though. Rennes' shooting opportunities, we'll ignore the halfway line lob attempt. The goal was a tap in into an empty net but the main problem is that there are no shots in and around the six yard box / penalty spot and Kanoute, the lone striker never managed a single shot all game. That would suggest he's either a) not in the area very much or b) marked out of the game. Let's go back to crossing and focus on the main offender, the left winger Alessandrini, who went 0 for 12 during the game. You can see he's mainly getting to the byline but generally he's not beating his man and though it says 'blocked', most of these attempts were intercepted by a defender. He's not a bad player and it takes two to complete a cross, so let's look at a typical cross to diagnose the problem. It's fairly obvious, Alessandrini (19) has got into a decent position and whipped the ball into the area. The problem is he's aiming for one guy who has potentially got three defenders to deal with. Kanoute is getting no support from the midfield (23 and 17)or the opposite winger and this is why no crosses are getting through. The opposite right winger is in no position to help either, he's too far away from the penalty area and he's being doubled up by the opposition left back (12) and a midfielder (14). Alesandrini's only real option is a backpass to his own left back (27), whose position for a cross is no better than his own anyway. The only 2 crosses that were successful, one was a corner and the other was from the right back getting forward, which allowed the right winger and the two midfielders to get into the area, which made the usual 1 v 3 into 4 v 4 as a Montpellier midfielder was forced to drop back into his own area to even the numbers. Another problem with Plubby's midfield sitting too deep is that his wingers and especially his forward become isolated. This isn't helped by his slow build up play that allows his opposition time to regroup and pick back up his attacking players who may be in space up field when possession is won back. Take this example, Rennes won the ball back down the right flank, four passes and ten seconds later, the ball has gone nowhere and Montpellier have five defenders in a line across the width of the pitch, any counter attacking opportunity has gone and Rennes are going to have to pass their way through eight players. Unfortunately, his centre backs don't quite share his tactics passing philosophy, as evidenced by their lower completion rate on the match stats. Here we see the CB with the ball, what are his options really? The right winger (12) is double marked, the left winger (10) is miles away and a long pass will probably be intercepted, you should never ping a pass across your own area so the left back (27) is out and Rennes midfield three (8, 23 and 28) are too deep and too close, both to the player with the ball and each other. So, he hoofs it forward in the hope that Kanoute might do something... with predictable results. Now the opposition have time and space on the halfway line to launch their own attack. Luckily, Rennes still have ten men behind the ball and attack came to nothing as the ball got bogged down in a midfield scrap as it did all game. Diagnosis Change the wide players from Wingers/Attack to Inside Forwards, which ever is the better dribbler and finisher as a IF/A and the other as a IF/S. I'd also suggest playing narrower via the team instructions in an attempt to get your wingers inside their full backs rather than going round the outside. You could also use 'cut inside' if you have wingers that can use their other foot or are opposite footed, ie. right footed left wingers. This should get the wide player into the penalty area and hopefully his opposite number should be up with him on the back post, causing problems for the defence. Change the midfielder playing as a DLP/S to an Advanced Playmaker, support against bigger teams and away where you need to be a bit more defensive and attack when at home and where you are the favourite to win. This will allow the midfielder to get further forward to support your striker, giving you another option in attack and leaving the BBM to do all the legwork between the DMC and the more attacking midfielder. Set your centre backs to 'shorter passing' via the player instructions. You have a DMC (if he can play Regista, even better) who should be available for shorter, low risk passes that he can then recycle into the midfield or if he's good enough, spray out onto the flanks. The wingers playing narrower presents an opportunity for the full backs to get forward into the space they've left behind. I would suggest giving them 'cross from deep' instructions. Hopefully with a striker, two inside forwards and at least one midfielder to aim for, their completion rates should be better. The striker is isolated as a target man / attack. If he's still being isolated despite more team mates getting forward, I'd suggest changing him to one of the more creative minded roles (False 9, Trequartista, Deep Lying Forward) so he drops into the space in front of the centre backs rather than sitting on their shoulder. I'm aware that Kanoute and Rickie Lambert don't scream creativity so you might want to sign someone who isn't a big lug / donkey.
