Free giveaway on promotional game(s) -- post them here

16 May 2019 - 04:37 PM

This is a continuation from a previous thread from another forum that is mostly inactive so I decided to carry that from here: https://forums.cncnz...-post-them-here

 

For the permanent free games, see here instead: https://forums.cncnz...y-pc-games-list

 

I never thought I would want to post this here, and I decided to post a thread asking you guys to post any free giveaway on game(s) that are temporarily free to get and download (and also includes trial versions that are considered free-to-play) without any paying cost (whether if it's from Steam, Origin, UPlay, Epic Games or whatsoever). At least it's better than paying up front. Please do not post MP only games here (ie. MOBA MMORPG, Battle Royale).

 

 

As of this first post, the latest free games to get right now that are temporarily free are Stories Untold at the Epic Games Store for 2 weeks and Steep from the Ubisoft Uplay until May 22nd.


My opinion of Avengers Endgame and Infinity War (spoilers beware)

13 May 2019 - 12:56 AM

Something tells me if the budget, scripting and events turn out almost perfectly (without the Disney boring drama effect), Infinity War and Endgame can be compressed into a 3-hr movie as one. In addition to watching Infinity War the other day, I watched Endgame in a cinema today with my dad and I was right. That movie was disappointing and tedious as crap (except the last hour), very similar to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End... plus the convoluted characters, and Brie Lawson and Danai Gurira should have gotten more screening time. I thought that Captain Marvel would have a major impact to the Avengers.... and that part did not go as planned due to the fact that she did not want to be in a team and she had to be in different places. Expect the same boring drama and adventure (and some action) in Star Wars 9: The Rise of Skywalker as well. It was totally different in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, The Matrix Revolutions, The Dark Knight Rises and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, where there have been armies battle for a longer period of time.

 

The very heavy hype of people wanting to watch this movie don't know what they are even thinking, despite going for a box office record to beat Avatar's $2.7+ billion USD global box office reign. Ever since Iron Man, I have yet to watch a good Marvel movie that's worth watching. Last year's Mission Impossible: Fallout was definitely worth watching and I'll bet this year's John Wick 3 (or Hobbs & Shaw or IP Man 4) will be worth watching due to the insurmountable action being used in the movie.

 

Now for the spoilers:

My opinion for the worst endings to a movie series:

1) The Hunger Games Mockingjay part 1 and 2 (where's the real action?)

2) The Matrix Revolutions (weird fighting matchup with CGI, and what happened to Neo?)

3) Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (**** Disney to continue the series into a convoluted disaster and the fallout of Johnny Depp)

4) Avengers: Endgame (wasn't as epic as planned and their idea of time travel sucks worse than Star Trek but Marvel's idea of time travel differs some from DC comics)

5) Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (not every prominent character returned)

 

My opinion for the best endings to a movie series:

1) The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

2) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II

3) Star Wars 6: Return of the Jedi (that was supposed to conclude the series until Disney extended the future trilogy instead)

4) The Dark Knight Rises

 

The one movie series that ended in a cliffhanger but never continued to conclude it is the Divergent series which is a disaster.


Cannot detect video card when launching Mental Omega 3.34

21 March 2019 - 03:49 AM

I believe Mental Omega 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and even 3.3 and 3.34 can work on most video cards even dating back to the first GeForce 256 or 2 series era. It has worked for me in my recent rigs (running Win7 and Win10), but when I tried to launch MO (through its exe) on my old Pentium 4 PC, the message reads out that it was unable to detect the video card (but it's already installed!). Well.... I installed the Net Framework 4.0 and even the XNA Framework 4 and DirectX latest update, all on Windows XP Home Edition. I installed this mod with the latest version all inputted into the RA2/YR main directory. However.... both the vanilla RA2 and YR are working without issues. The old video card I am running on my old PC is a GeForce 4 MX 440 AGP 8X. 

 

Am I missing something or was there something incompatible in my old system?

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:
