Thanks everyone who suggested places to get gaming related clothes, got myself some new t-shirts. Bloodborne, HZD and Nier Automata and those are just for starters!

Anyone watch the Ruiz v Joshua fight? The fight was decent enough, right result but the post fight interview was awful. I've never seen Joshua talk much before but wow, he could do with a little microphone tutelage. I'm no wordsmith but I'm watching him talk and it's like a script that's gone through 5 languages. Very shaky stuff. Anyway, hope we get a AR v AJ part 3!

@Arugula I didn’t see the fight nor the interview, but I do know what you mean about the post-event interviews. It’s quite amazing how poorly spoken most professional athletes are — especially those that receive repetitive TBI for a living. The combination of brain injury, speaking in a language that is not their native tongue, commonly a lack of education due to their profession not requiring it, and the standard public speaking jitters all makes for a cringe-inducing word salad, if not a comical one.

You can usually tell the ones that have been coached by their PR people though. I saw a post game interview a few weeks ago for one of the NBA’s rising stars and clearly he was told what to say because he answered with a rote and probably pre-memorized statement in each of the three questions that basically said nothing of consequence, nor did the answers actually even address the question which was posed.
...Come to think of it, this is exactly what our politicians do and they speak publicly for a living. 😂

@Th3solution I have a huge interest in sports (it's probably my greatest interest) and I love seeing the changes a professional athlete goes through from being a star struck rookie to a seasoned veteran of their chosen sport. Especially ones where multiple nationalities clash.

@Arugula Yeah, it’s an interesting social experiment. The public has put these athletes in a no-win situation with the interviews. Every word they say is put into a 3 inch headline and so if they slip up and say something stupid then it immediately becomes an issue. We ask them pressing and controversial questions right after an event when they are physically and mentally drained and full of adrenaline. It makes it all the more impressive when they are able to form a cohesive and intelligent thought and verbalize it.
And then you have Marshawn Lynch... 😂

@Arugula Not sure if there will be third fight as AJ tweeted out to the public who they want him to fight next, which he has done before. The only reason this rematch happened was because it was in the contract of the first fight. I imagine there will a big push to get Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder, but I think they fight each other next so maybe the winner of that to unify the belts. But it is not clear if AJ has any mandatories to fight.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@JohnnyShoulder Either way it's pretty cool to have some action and really decent contenders in the heavyweight division.

@Arugula Yeah it's certainly better than a few years ago when Klitschko dominated. That was well boring.

@DerMeister Man I'm telling you, if I'm going to be able to go through all the games that come out in the first four months, I'd have to skip uni the entire semester. It's ridiculous.

Not to mention Ghost of Tsushima, Babylon's Fall, Granblue Fantasy: Relink and possibly more games to be announced during VGA on Thursday. 2017 has already lost to 2020.

@KratosMD The ones I'm eyeing up aren't short experiences either. Cyberpunk and Nioh 2 are big ones for me and they're going to take me a couple of months each at least, probably more.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@KratosMD Dude, you missed out LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. At least make me feel like I'm welcome here by including something I'll actually play!

@Gremio108 Yeah it's the same with the games I'm interested in like Persona 5 Royal which is going to take at least 100 hours to complete, lol.

@RogerRoger My apologies mate, how could I forget the game that's going to crush the likes of Cyberpunk and The Last of Us into dust.

@Gremio108 Did you ever finish the first Nioh? Somewhere in the back of my mind I seem to remember you had borrowed it from a friend and never finished it. Not sure why I remember that. It sounds creepy but I promise it’s just my weird memory. I’m not a stalker ... 😒 probably.
Edit: Never mind, I see in the other thread that you did finish it. I guess I missed that. You must have liked it.
Now I see that I did forget you haven’t played Horizon Zero Dawn, which is an unforgivable sin.

@KratosMD Part of the reason I haven’t bought a Switch is because I can’t keep up with all the good games on just one console, much less two.

@RogerRoger “Cyberwhat and the Last of Who” sounds like the title of a children’s book. 😂 Or a really bad animated movie from the 80’s.

@Th3solution Yeah I'm starting to regret buying a Switch actually. I have so many games on there – Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Octopath Traveler, Fire Emblem: Three Houses just to name a few – that I haven't even started yet and I don't think I'll be playing through them anytime soon. Not to mention my recent influx of over 20 PS4 games that I purchased during Black Friday. Granted I've been playing certain games like Pokémon and Mario Kart on Switch, but that's mostly it. My focus this year has either been on older consoles (for example Mass Effect 2 and 3 on Xbox 360, or Final Fantasy VI on PS1) or on PS4. There's just not been enough time to spread my focus more than that.

I honestly think that after I've inevitably bought all these aforementioned 2020 titles that I won't be getting the next Xbox at all and I'm going to restrain myself from buying PS5 for at least 2-3 years into its life cycle. It's simply not feasible for me to buy ANOTHER system right now or even in the near future, my backlog has grown out of control and I need to remedy it.

That's why I'm hoping PS5 won't have any "killer apps" throughout the first couple of years since I don't want to get tempted into buying it. I remember PS4 only receiving fairly decent exclusives from 2013-2016. Knack and Killzone were meh, inFAMOUS: Second Son and First Light were great, Bloodborne is phenomenal (but not really my cup of tea), Uncharted 4 didn't do it for me either, The Last Guardian was pretty good and Ratchet & Clank was great. Looking back, I probably didn't need to buy a PS4 for any of those games. I could've easily waited until 2017 when the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, NieR: Automata and Persona 5 came out and that would've been worth it. So hopefully I'll manage to get through the first couple of years of PS5 without feeling the need to buy it.

@Th3solution Yep, I finished Nioh in the spring, after a false start last year. You're right I did indeed borrow it off a friend. A very patient friend, since it took me so long. I'm surprised you didn't see the credits rolling while you were looking through my window with those binoculars.........

Whenever I tell someone I haven't played Horizon Zero Dawn yet, they react in the same way, which tells me I should probably get on with it and that it's rather good. Anyway, I've put it on my Christmas list, so hopefully I can soon atone for my sins.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.
