  1. Final Fantasy XVI, Death Stranding 2, Diablo IV. It was also announced that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was Kevin Conroy's last Batman performance. The show was still running so I don't know if there are any other announcements coming. edit: Never mind. It just finished.
  2. My only question…can I dismember PEOPLE? 😡 Yes? Oh good. I MIGHT get it. No? Into the discount pile it goes where I’ll consider it during a Black Friday sale.
  3. Locking. Project is vaporware territory until further notice.
  4. Primal's robot form reminds me of Beast Machines' body but with Beast Wars' head.🤨
  5. Isn't that what all franchises are? Which Macross now is...
  6. That does relate my primary complaint about this season; wasted time, like the first 2 episodes. Because next season will be covering the 4 years leading up to Rogue One, I imagine there will be less fluff. But because of that, they might be packin 'em in each episode.
  7. As the others have said, retraining and new maintenance equipment are factored in/negligible to the costs. That comes with the cost of upgrading. What's not factored is what may not be apparent. Proprietary or hard-to-source parts, downtime between usage, software updates, vendor servicing, etc. ☝️There are real-life examples where maintenance of a machine costs more (and produces more headaches) than the machine itself over time. More so in recent years...
  8. Transformation has nothing to do with it. It's an inherit cost of a variable fighter. The YF-21 was significantly more expensive than the YF-19. The BDI/BCS primary control system was buggy and expensive. The morphing control surfaces was always intended to be a test and was not for final submission. The YF-21 was more expensive to maintain with its much more complicated systems. In order for the VF-22 to be accepted, the YF-21 had to be simplified to bring the costs down.
  9. Reviews for the RTX 4080 are out. Definitely better than the 3080 with around the same power usage but the consensus seems to be "Is it worth the $1200-price tag? 🤷‍♂️". Yeah, the price of the RTX 4000-series seems to be big sticking point for this generation.
  10. That can be seen as condescending, given the context of the previous responses. Now, I'm willing to let this go and move on but if I have to come back, this thread gets locked.
