We'll see what comes out of TGS this year. Some years, there are a couple interesting announcements; other years, it's just a rehash. With Sony slowing momentum lately in terms of their conference announcements, I don't expect anything big. Maybe a couple of tidbits (e.g. about Death Stranding).

I wouldn't expect much from that PSN talk. I mean, look at the description: "A girls talk featuring guests Shiina Natsukawa and Asaka with Hatsune Matsushima. The theme is “Our PlayStation Network Life.” At the end, Asaka will perform a PlayStation Video Anime Special Medley Concert."

squee!

Because women talk?

Noone will say anything negative here to you anyway. They don't want to scare you off again. This is after all, an only Xbox forum.

Don't fear those evil women with a voice! You'll manage some how!

So it sounds like Sony is about to steal the show again. Take it easy on them.

Here's the Dreams showcase:


A synopsis:

"First of all, we get to see some of the different kinds of games that can be created within Dreams, and this included stuff we already saw at PAX West, as well as some completely new games. Furthermore, they also recreated the entire show-floor of Tokyo Game Show within the game- neat! This was quickly made into a racing game, which also showcased how the camera movement works for such a type of game made within Dreams. Some new robot buddies were also introduced to the audience, and a part of the game’s story was also explored using 2 player co-op mode."

Belly has gotten in his head that I hate women. Probably because I was critical of third-wave feminism/SJWs and identity politics. It's the predictable thing those types do, when you're critical of their ideology -- call you a misogynist. No doubt I'm a racist and a homophobe, too. The rest of it is just more playing the victim and hating on me, which he has an extensive history of.

Banned him for his attack on Swede in the Shenmue thread.

Temporary or permanent ban?

I always kind of liked Belly, as odd as he was.

Heh, yeah, a little. That's his normal delivery. I kind of like it.
Back in my bar-backing days, one of the bartenders I worked with had a similar speech pattern. I just figured it was because he was a lush... ah.. good times....

Belly seems to have went from fun loving and outlandish dude to angry sjw of late.
I'd guess he some real life issues on his mind or something. Unfortunate that he's gone.
