    Forgot all about GDC, it’s from the 2nd to the 6th. Kojima has been at the last 2, I wonder if he’ll be at this one, maybe with a release date for a certain game.

      Boktai 3?

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I hope he is, along side FFXV, Uncharted and maybe some new random things.

    Man the internet annoys me.
    I was reading about Herodotus. The guy who is kind of though of as the father of history.

    He was reasonable in his analysis, fact checked and noted where his opinion and unconfirmed info showed up.
    So this makes his comments about Griffiths, dragons and flying serpents interesting.
    Was it all just hearsay, encounters with bones or creatures we now classify differently?

    SO I decided to look up stuff about him and hopefully other alleged accounts of dragons throughout history. Mostly because I have always wanted to know how many actual accounts there were outside of heraldry and bestiaries.

    But sadly I get one of three things rpg/card game stuff about dragons or more annoyingly people debating whether accounts of dragons were living dinosaurs and how to support/discredit young earth creationism.

    Absolutely obnoxious, I just want the straight up accounts not people debating stuff.

    Lost a lot of hype for The Division but this reminds me why I was excited for it.

    “There are two main types of area in The Division, the co-op areas where players can help each other out or ignore each other as they move around the game world, and the PVP Dark Zones. These Dark Zones are lawless parts of the city, ripe with infection, enemies who are out to kill you, and other players with the same motives.

    The level of infection in these areas mean that players have to wear gas masks to avoid getting infected themselves. What this also means is that the area is full of infected NPCs. That doesn’t mean zombies or anything like that, it just means desperate people who might just be close enough to the edge to attack you. You’re going to have to navigate thick areas of infection, possibly full of these people, in the game if you want to get decent rewards. Trust us when we say you want the decent rewards.

    The Dark Zones are packed with other players to kill, but they’re also packed with tons of great loot to find. You might stumble across a new weapon, piece of gear, or something else that will help you progress faster in the single player areas. You could equally find all of this on another player, which is a bit of a problem if they’re using it on you. If you do manage to defeat a player who has a superior piece of gear, it’s yours to take and do whatever you want with, but it won’t permanently stick to your character until you leave the Dark Zone.

    Leaving the Dark Zone requires you to call in a helicopter with a flare. The issue here is that you’re broadcasting your position to every player in the zone. What will they think when they see the flare that calls in a helicopter? That’s right, “that player must have some sweet gear to steal”. Now you’ve got to fight off every player who’s decided to come after you based on your escape attempt, and if you get killed you lose that sweet piece of gear or weapon that took you ages to pick up.”

    I really hope Final Fantasy XV has Chocobo breeding. I want it to be more robust than FFVII’s was, I want to have the colored ones back too. I would sink so many hours into making myself a brilliant Chocobo.

      Also while hey are at it bring back chocobo racing…..but in the countryside not some of the trippy tracks.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      Seriously, chocobo racing NEEDS to come back in a great way!

    • dracosummoner

      Has there ever been online chocobo racing? Could you imagine this with or without custom loadouts and everything?

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I would cry tears of joy if they made online choco racing with my very own Chocobo!
