  1. Without getting into spoiler talk, Wallace's improvements are not as solid as he would like to think. Replicants as a creation have a common issue where their life experience ultimately gives them awareness and agency, regardless of how great their initial programming is. This was the original reason why the Nexus 6 models were given a 4 year lifespan, to avoid them developing their own ideals over time. The problem of course being that once they became aware of their accelerated mortality it made things even worse, which is why later Nexus models were reverted to having a full life span (though ultimately those didn't pan out either, since they caused the great blackout in the anime short) Wallace has certainly made changes, but they are changes based on the Tyrell framework.
  2. This may not be correct, but I got the impression that Wallace, while intelligent, was more of a vulture than an inventor. In the short movie he very clearly states that his "patents" are preventing hunger, he doesn't say his invention. I may be reading too much into it, but it's a very specific wording. There's also no mention (that I can remember) of him having any success with replicants before buying out Tyrell. Then there's his difficulties in reproducing Rachel's abilities (will leave vague to avoid spoilers) 30 years after Tyrell first created her. He's an underachiever with a God complex, standing on the shoulders of giants trying to feel tall.
  3. There are next to no mid-budget movies anymore. All you get are no budget festival bait and direct to netflix/dvd trash, and huge budget "epics". Science fiction tends to be expensive to start with which leaves huge bloated budget as the main option, and studios won't shell out for anything that doesn't have and established fan base. The ones that do have an established brand needed to do really well to get the Hollywood bandwagon in action with everyone chasing the latest moneymaker, but these aren't making money so it doesn't look good :/
  4. Really hoping word of mouth gets people out to see this. Between Ghost in the Shell not being very good and getting poor returns, and this being very good, but still not getting great returns, my hope for a wave of great cyberpunk movies is looking much less likely. Not really looking forward to pinning my hopes for the future of cyberpunk on Ready Player One
  5. Not for tankrewards, you still get gold for duplicate tanks from those missions
  6. Well, for anyone that has access to tankrewards missions (not sure if it's NA only) I wouldn't recommend selling any tier 5s or 6s, as it's easy free gold when you're awarded a duplicate. The more of them you have in your garage the more likely whatever tanks are on offer will be a duplicate. Especially lately, as they've focused on simple XP grinds for a bulk of the points, and they all award XP boosters when you complete them, you stay booster neutral using a booster to get the mission out of the way quickly.
  7. Am I missing something with June's Tankrewards missions?  Every month has one of the missions being to earn 20k XP a day, and the addon for this month is to earn 10K a day.  There are no requirements to have one done before doing the other, so you will do the second automatically half way through doing the first mission.  I'm not going to complain about easy points and free boosters, but just seems like I must be missing something...

  8. I'm not sure if this reflects the game, or that I'm a crusty old fuck (or both) but this excites me solely to the extent that I can get the 20k XP tankrewards mission done faster and turn WoT off.
  9. SoS and BiA are compatible in 9.19, nice :)

      Have to grade WG on a curve.  I wouldn't be super impressed if some random person decides not to eat my trash, but it's impressive if my dog can keep it together :P

  10. They definitely need to address the direction the game is going, but I didn't expect it to be in this PR statement. Balance is a long term thing and you don't want to go making promises you might not be able to carry through on down the road. Apologising for fucking up multiple times in the same PR disaster should be a no brainer though, and they finally did that, so half a step in the right direction at least. Hopefully we'll get more good news regarding balance soon.
  11. Looks like they finally managed to get a map and flashlight together and find their collective asshole. Still mind boggling that it took this long.
  12. Fair enough, have no idea what they're from, just looked weird. If it's supposed to look weird then all power to them
  13. Is it just me or does the scale on the gun look way off? Looks more like a 128 or even 150 (minus the muzzle break) than an 88
  14. I will forgive you for these comparisons only because you speak out of ignorance. https://www.maplesyrupworld.com/pages/Maple-Syrup-Tasting.html
  15. UK one reminds me of Natalie Dormer. Time to mod that in as the default soundpack
