Not to mention today's announcement that Ukraine will be able to use American weapons to strike Russia directly. Following this week's NATO strikes against Russia's early nuclear warning radars, it's probably going over the edge as well.

If you don't have ammo now, I'd buy some asap.

Because like Final Fantasy 7 it is one of the most well known and popular parts of the franchise. There's still nostalgia to tap in there.

Metal Gear 1 and 2 on the other hand are close to 40 years old. You'd have to completely build those games from scratch because there's no 3d reference material at all for those games. Compared to the rest of the franchise they're also the most straight laced and you would really need someone with Kojima's touch to being them in line with the other games. They would of been perfect during the PS1/PSP era like the many similar remakes of the time (Final Fantasy, Persona) but the window for them is probably past sadly.

Metal Gear Solid V. Not only did the series creator leave because of it but the game released completely unfinished and will remain that way forever. It's not only missing the ending and final chapter to the game but has loads of characters, gameplay systems and plot points that were just dropped because of whatever the fuck was going on between Kojima and Konami behind the scenes.

To be fair MGS3 is being remade but I don't see it doing that well when the FF7 remake bombed and it's been out of the popular zeitgeist for so long.

Why though? The stuff I have was worked on by people who don't even work at the company and throwing it away won't affect GW's bottom line. They're already crashing it down of their own violation. I can appreciate and use stuff in respective of where it is now.

I might not be happy with the direction of the Aliens or Star Wars franchise but I'm not going home and throwing away my copy of Empire Strikes Back or Aliens.

Eh I disagree, again using Warmachine as an example, that franchise is pretty much dead.

Now whether I pick up older models for pennies from secondhand sellers will not change that an iota. They're not seeing any of that money and it's only going to be used with games with my mates. If Warhammer goes the same way, I'm not going to unilaterally throw all my 40k stuff away, there's 40+ years of rulesets and lore there you can interact with and not give GW a dime.

I wholeheartedly agree, I'm not big on any of the "red pill" "influencers" but one thing one of them said is exactly that. If a woman wants to fuck you you she will agree to the simplest coffee date because she wants your time, which is the most finite resource any of us have. If she doesn't then move on and do not simp because she's just not that into you.

The pendulum has just swung back, their former staff have since revealed they almost completely went out of business the last time they became out of touch in the aughts. It was something like they had weeks of capitol left before they shut the doors. They turned it around in late 10s but they've gone right back to it and with 3d printers and a huge explosion in paints they're in trouble.

The upside to that is that Warmachine/Hordes models are so cheap it's crazy, I've picked up entire armies worth of units for pennies. Privateer Press themselves were selling their entire legacy warhouse stock for 75-95% a couple months ago.

If the same happens to GW, so be it, there's a few things I'd still like to grab that would just be too much hassle to 3d print.

Was it just Warhammer books or the models? GW does run alot of small scale entry products for bookstores and big box stores in the US but if it was the full pitch I'd be very wary. I have a local flgs near me that stocks Warhammer and I feel for the owners everytime I go in because it does not sell. They're running a permanent 30% all the time and the piles of stuff Games Workshops sends them just gets bigger everytime I go in there.

I do think they've hit the upper end of saturation and the CFO dump and a recent leak that Henry Cavill is ready to walk and sink the Amazon show makes me think they're in trouble.

And then they get abused by their woman partners. Not being hyperbolic but every single person I've met in my entire lifetime that's been a lesbian was being verbally or physically abused by their partner. The domestic violence statistics for that cohort is incredible.

I'm pretty sure this is legit. I recognize the person posting that from 4chan, they actually posted a bunch of insider information about the current model lines and future releases for all of Games Workshop's games. The leaks for Warhammer stuff has been dead on for years and even former staff who have started Youtube channels have said there is someone on the staff leaking stuff there but they just haven't been able to find the person doing it.

To add to this there are 1:1 Photogrammetry scans of alot of models but you will have to go on Telegram for that.

There used to be a lot more of direct Warhammer clones on Cults but Games Workshop will shut them down as soon as they find them, so you have to do weird conversions (Primaris Marines = Prime Beef) or just grab them before they're removed.

1/5th of the price? If you have the right setup it's closer to 1/64 depending on what you print. There are 1:1 Photogrammetry scans for most of the models if you know where to look or proxies that match the rest of the range.

The problem is mostly the 3D printing itself and that's from someone who printed a full 2000pts Lumineth army for Warhammer. The resins are pretty gnarly and you need to have a dedicated exhaust system or a room you don't step in because of the VOCs. The parts are also consumable (FEP films, LCD screens, etc) and you need to take apart the printers to replace them and they're not cheap.

It's a fantastic tool but it's far from threatening Game Workshop's stock, at least in its current stage.

Do you have friends to play with? It seems silly to shelf them in the attic. Nu-Warhammer might be dumb as shit but that doesn't stop you and mates from playing and ignoring the new stuff.

My mates and I still play 8th edition and drink beers and Games Workshop never sees a dollar from us.

I wish but they already replied on the official twitter that "There's always been female Custodes" and one of the writers posted some to the effect of "They always existed but the previous boss wouldn't let us write them because there was no minis"

Nah. I've been in the scene for a long time and FitGirl is a biological woman. The tranny accusations were actually started by Empress when both of them got into a catfight over FitGirl taking donations for her repacking. They might be autistic and crazy but they're women.

Pirate lore does run deep.

Depends on what your looking for game playwise and how "modern" it is. Each game really is a snapshot of the decade it's released in. The most recent one does have the most content but it is a reflection of modern times for better or worse. It is very much more Sims 2 like though than it's predecessor so if you like 2 you'll probably like 4.

Sims 3 is a different experience but it is saddled with a creaking engine where you can't use all the dlc at once without setting your computer on fire.

Fitgirl doesn't crack anything though, she only repacks scene releases. The only one who had any luck with Denuvo was Empress but she disappeared as far as I know.

A lot of recent Denuvo games haven't been touched.

I agree but more than than just the engine, all the original developers have probably moved onto other things. Any HL3 would be made by new people who have the "idea" what HL3 should be and not the spark that gave us Half-Life 2.

Even with the original team, the "Epistle Three" as originally outlined would have led to another massive cliff hanger and people would be clamoring for a HL4 that'd take another 15+ years.

I disagree that to win you have to become a cold, caring monster. There are women attracted to that and the "dark personality traits" but most just want a fit, confident mate at the end of the day. To "win", just go to the gym and fix your diet and confidence does follow when you get to a level of fitness and healthier eating.

Not just from the increased attraction you will recieve, but being a stronger physical person not subsiding on junk food helps bring it out.

I very much agree with this and hate how women and society keeps telling men the opposite.

It's completely understandable that a woman wouldn't want to fuck you if you're a chubby out of shape piece of shit. When you break it down to base animal kingdom level scrubbing away all the human social norms, you're showing that you're a bad potential mate with poor impulse control and no desire to improve. That's really the crux of it, like if you don't want to be in the friend-zone (And this applies to all social human relationships) go to the gym and cut down on the calories you consume.

True but I hope this pushes more people of Project64 just from the news of this. Project64 has always been "baby's first emulator" and never has been especially accurate. There are far more accurate emulators out there more than deserve the support and downloads.

The movies are interesting because they really don't fit in the timeline and never did. I've watched retrospectives and they pretty much their own DBZ timeline with recurring characters like Icarus. So while they added to, it never fucked with the main series like all this new bullshit has.

It really comes down to Toyotarou who started this. He was reopening the series when he wrote Dragon Ball AF and then he made all his fan stuff canon when he took on Super. Did we all really need Xicor to be canon? It's such a mess at this there really is no "canon" to follow.

It's very similar to how they handled the Aliens movie series. There's so many spinoffs, novels that are canon or not depending on the week, the rpg which canonizes some of the comics and unfilmed scripts. videogame timelines etc. At the end of the day I just ignore it and pick and choose what I like.

Not suprising, Project64 has been always pretty shit. I remember they added a toolbar/malware that auto installed back in the day and never announced it.

When people found out and complained they whined and were like "We didn't think anyone would notice".
