I'm not a socializer at all in single player games, definitely an achiever. Killer/ explorer depends on the game but I'm probably more of a killer

Just in case others don't know how these are defined.

Explorer-searches for content within a game. Includes finding bugs and secret areas.

Achiever-works towards in game goals. Higher xp, leaderboards, trophies, outfits, etc.

Socializer-playing with friends, even if they are AI.

Killers-dominating other players/the game. Forcing your will upon others e.g. "fighting dirty."

Probably an explorer.  

My dream game, would probably make me more of a socializer.  
I tend to socialize a lot with NPCs. I just feel so rude not helping them. In every Mass Effect I was a full on socializer lol.

watched one.  looked like a gears/destiny mashup.  

also looked pretty bad.  bad gameplay. bad graphics/art direction.
Yeah it doesn't look hot.

Comes across extremely generic from the easy allies video. Average games are still good and fun but it's not interesting looking to me.

1.) It's funny how people were interpreting the mirrorless camera to be for the PS5.  Even journalists...

2.) This rumor boosts confidence in Sony by addressing a couple concerns people had.  Reaffirming PSVR (after silly people were concerned about the studio closing), also addresses the cooling system being unusually costly while people seem to be criticizing how loud the PS4 fans more than ever. 

3.) It's kind of weird to me how confident the companies seem to be in consoles.  It didn't make any sense to me that there was uncertainty around the PS4 existing.  PCs still dont offer the same benefits as consoles and streaming was a ways off.
It feels weird to me that we've gotten closer to streaming possible taking over, and yet confidence in new consoles has apparently gone way up. 

4.) Zhuge's suggestion at the bom gives a wide range that seems to suggest Series X will be better.  A lot of people have been talking about the Series X being 12 TF vs 9-10.7 TF for PS5.

Off-Topic Community / Email 2, what would it be?
Last post by Legend - Feb 16, 2020, 07:52 AM
Say you were put in charge of designing a new email system from the ground up, what would it be?

For starters I would use IP6 addresses instead of custom names. There is no reason people should ever think about this. Instead you would message people by name just like on social media.

Your email address would also be public. Everyone can see it, from friends to random scammers. Instead of treating the address as a privacy tool, keys are given out as needed. Add a friend? The system sends a custom key that only works for the friend.

At any time, you can review all active keys and cut off access. Say a company won't leave you alone. Just revoke the initial key you gave them and they cannot contact you again.

Say a company is changing their email address or is reworking things. They could connect to the system and auto transfer the key so things keep working, but you have a trail and know exactly what happened. Before the contents of any of these new emails are shown, you would have a popup alerting you to the change.

For public events, public keys could be passed out. These would act like temporary emails so strangers could contact you. If someone wanted traditional email, they would just use this and never delete the key.


Email tracking would be built in. You'd know when your emails are open and you'd know when keys are revoked. People could disable this if they wanted.

What's the coolest community level you've tried so far?
I haven't tried one yet, I'm still playing through Art's Dream (the MM story) but I played a few cool ones in the beta.
