  1. I think it could work, provided developers of cross platform games include an option for mouse and keyboard controls. Most players probably wouldn't bother, because they're accustomed to playing from the couch or because they can't comfortably play that close to their Xbox. (do wireless mice work on an xbox one?) I think cross platform play with PC players should probably be something the player opts into, with the understanding that if they aren't using mouse and keyboard controls they will be at a disadvantage due to the lack of aim assist. What balance tweaks are usually done beyond that? I know that the last generation Battlefield games had lower player counts, but I'm assuming that isn't an issue anymore. I might be wrong, but I thought that at this point the PC's advantages were strictly graphical*. Edit: *When it comes to cross platform games at least. I know that in theory someone could create a game that couldn't run on a puny console because of all it's real time physics calculations or fancy AI or whatever. I've just never heard of one.
  2. http://www.theverge.com/2016/5/24/11762204/rocket-league-xbox-one-pc-cross-play It's now possible to play Rocket League multiplayer on Xbox One against PC players and vice versa. I really hope they expand this to include cross-console play, and it eventually becomes the norm. The only reason I went with Xbox over PS4 was to be able to play with my friends. I'm also curious how they'd handle first person shooters. I think most people would agree PC players would have an aim advantage over people using controllers. Though really I don't see why keyboard and mouse support wouldn't be possible on Xbox one.
  3. Board Issues 4

    This is a minor thing that I doubt is bothering anyone, but I noticed that some threads have multiple replies but somehow zero views.

  5. Real one too I'm pretty sure. I don't think Loki killed him. There was a rumor
  6. Small Questions v. 10105

    Yeah, I think that's a good idea.
  7. Small Questions v. 10105

    Well, the difference is that Martin very rarely gives future plot points away in interviews and chats with fans. I would also like some clarification on this though. I'd say at least spoiler tag that kinda stuff, since it's essentially info from unreleased books. Maybe if I do this @Ran thingy he'll get the notification and stop by to let us know what the policy is.
  8. [Book Spoilers] R+L=J, A+J=T and other theories on HBO V.3

    I wouldn't be so sure. Lots of people thought the Reeds were cut when they didn't show up when expected. But of course they weren't. The show often shifts things from the books around or remixes them. You know Euron isn't going to be stuck on the Iron Islands for long. I'd be surprised if his Iron Fleet wasn't ready to sail by the end of the season. They're being especially loose with the passage of time this season. Anyway as I said he may not have the thing yet. He may acquire the horn on his way to Mereen, if the writers feel like picking up the warlock revenge plot thread. Or they could introduce the horn later in a way totally unrelated to Euron, if it's important to the plot. I never really thought the horn would be essential to the end game. I think you know I believe Jon and Tyrion will be the other two dragon riders at the end and that they won't need to use a horn. But it could cause quite a bit of mayhem between now and then. I certainly don't see it being a dead-end. It's going to have some effect, just maybe not in the way we're supposed to be expecting. Anyway I really don't think we should draw conclusions based on the show. Especially because with all the talk of wrapping things up in two more (possibly shortened) seasons there's a good chance the show will skip "Aegon" and the second Dance of Dragons entirely. Personally I don't think the second Dance will be a war between Daenerys, Jon and Tyrion. So I'm inclined to believe other people will mount Rhaegal and/or Viserion in the meantime. Unless more dragons are going to show up.

    I think Euron could still pull the horn out at some point. I'd hope his plan isn't just "sail over to Mereen and charm Daenerys with boats." He should have some reason to think he can convince her to marry him beyond just the thousand ships. (He shouldn't even know her fleet was burnt, because if he knew that then he'd surely know she was missing and presumed dead.) Something that helps her control the other dragons could be it. Though I tend to think the horn doesn't really work that way, and is probably used to establish the blood bond. They could even show on screen what happened off-screen in the books. Have Euron encounter a warlock ship en route to Mereen and take the horn from them. Possibly having a warlock take the Moqorro role of the guy who misleads Euron about the horn's nature.
  10. New Star Trek Series on CBS

    It's funny at the time I didn't remember, but Forbes actually also played another role on Next Generation before she was cast as Ro. I caught part of the episode last night.

    Yeah, as Consigliere said Rhalko was a Khal. Those were all the Khals in that room having their big meeting. Again, I don't see any reason why Martin's "it was a one time magical event" statement wouldn't be assumed to also apply to the show until last week's episode.
  12. It improves, I wouldn't say drastically. It's still a pretty shitty show. It just gets a bit more interesting after the Winter Soldier shakeup.
  13. New Star Trek Series on CBS

    I'd imagine that won't be an issue. They've had a lot of people play multiple parts, often even in the same series. Sometimes even multiple parts without heavy makeup.

    Didn't the ship also get trashed in the last one?
  15. I dunno, it seems like it'd be considerably easier to create than that fake Age of Ultron post-credit scene. Some people apparently think this sort of thing is worth the effort.
