Movies of 2019

12 February 2019 - 01:24 AM

Well I decided to create this thread and I have been thinking about it for weeks. There are over 40 sequels, remakes and/or reboots in this year. But Pasidon has been right about one thing, many movies today are full of recycled concepts. Almost every good title are in this year except for James Bond, Mission Impossible and Avatar 2.
Here is a list of 2019 movies (and I will update them without notice) that are already looking like an instant fail:

Cloud gaming PC service seems intimidating but pricey

12 December 2018 - 10:47 PM

Who says the gaming PC days are numbered? No matter what PC you have, if you have unlimited Internet service with unlimited data (and no data caps), you may be fine with this feature. But there are some areas that have limited speeds and data caps and that this is NOT for them. Millionaires and billionaires can afford this, but not regular gamers. I like the technology but even buying that piece of hardware and using a virtual PC service at $35 USD a month + extra fees, this does not substitute buying/creating a new PC with latest hardware, plus you have to be restricted in an area to use it nearby that server area. Also can they let you play any type of PC game from the 80s to today? I doubt it.



My top picks of music videos in 2018

21 November 2018 - 07:37 PM

Last year, Despacito (about to hit 6 billion views soon), Nina's Counting Stars, Scandroid's Thriller cover, Alex's Youth, Nigel Stanford's Automatica and Jennifer Paige's Devil's in the Details are my top picks.


Well here's my top five music video picks for this year, despite retrowave becoming too addicted to me.


1) Some of you may have heard of The Cars' Drive. Well here is another different version of it by a different artist. I first heard this via a retrowave remix, but the original sounds as great. The one part that's interesting unlike most music videos is the violence used in the video. Viewers be warned.


2) Nina's best acting.... and still touching.


3) Megan McDuffee's best singing track so far and one of Alex's best tracks.


4) I hope this song wins a Grammy, Golden Globe and an Oscar.... maybe?


5) Her comeback to music but transitioning to Christian music had me surprised.


Honorable mention(s):



What are your pop picks of music videos this year? Post them if you wish.

How bad is C&C Rivals anyway?

14 June 2018 - 10:40 PM

Pretty much due to last week's recent slowdown of the site and now it has been fixed, it's time for a thread discussion of this terrible mobile game that pretty much ruined the image of EA's IP of the C&C franchise.


Few Starcraft fans liked it but not C&C fans, and not much opinion comes from the people of Mental Omega and BFME.


My opinions:

1) It will flop big time, probably in 1-2 years or maybe less.
2) It has terrible design mostly on units that don't look like GDI

3) It would have had bigger maps for a bigger field of play.

4) It has fucking loot boxes but they don't need real money to pay.

5) It has terrible balance, even Nod is getting the upper hand.

6) It has a terrible retro-image of Kane. Kane won't be pleased.

7) It has a terrible usage of commanders from different timelines putting all in one game. Someone once said it will become the look of C&C All-Stars, but where're the other factions?

8) It should have been developed around the time of Tiberium Alliances.
