#3322918 Mortal Kombat X

Posted by carpanfan96 on 15 April 2015 - 07:35 PM

apparently it's completely broken for PC just a fair warning

Works for me, people complained because of the pre load and streaming thing. Plus it's graphic card hungry and I think there's some problems with windows 8.

I'm liking it more then 9 so far, but that could change. I played 9 for 5 months or so.


#3320509 Drove from Chicago to Indianapolis in this

Posted by carpanfan96 on 13 April 2015 - 03:09 PM

Back in 06, I was working in utility locating and the company I worked for bought a full fleet of the old school regular Chevy Aveo's. They took the back seat out and caged it, had to fit a shovel, post hole digger, locate equipment and crates of paint into that damn tiny ass car.

Not fun going from a truck to that damn thing. Lol

#3319427 So is the coaching staff here to stay?

Posted by carpanfan96 on 12 April 2015 - 07:46 AM

With Eichel and McDavid in the draft, that's what should have happened THIS season, but the Canes managed to play their way right out of striking distance.


Sad but true. I was wanting the fire sale this season and it should have been done, but oh well.


#3319367 2015-2016 North Carolina Tar Heels

The 2 and 3 in the NBA are pretty much interchangeable, especially with mkg's ability to guard 4 positions. Winslow and MKG would be a pretty nasty wing combo.

 

The amount of hustle, defense and tenacity in those two would make wing players hate playing Charlotte.

Waiting on pc release myself, but played it on ps4 for a bit. Can't wait to get into the game again.


#3316159 We're getting smoked. Game thread.

Posted by carpanfan96 on 08 April 2015 - 08:45 PM

Enough of the "untradeable" shtick. Every contract in the league is tradeable it's just a matter of attaching an incentive and/or taking back just as much or more money from another team to make it happen. The problem is Cho isn't aggressive enough to use his own picks in a trade to dump players that aren't working. So instead of making a play for dragic, we get mo Williams. Instead of getting rid of lance for spare parts, he gets DNP's.

In order to restart this rebuild, Cho is going to have to be more aggressive in tearing it down or else you're right, we're in the same sad boat next season just praying Curry gets homesick in a few years.


Getting rid of Lance isn't worth giving up a 1st round pick at any point when the ceiling without him was a first round exit in the playoffs.

Getting rid of a first round pick to get rid of overpaid players isn't worth it when you're rebuilding "which the Hornets are doing, even if they or the fans don't see it yet" isnt the way to go unless you're getting something worthwhile back.

So yes, expect to suck again next season because Lance, Jefferson and Kemba are untradable without giving up something major or taking garbage back.


#3315093 RUMOR: Panthers looking to move up to 16-20th pick

Posted by carpanfan96 on 07 April 2015 - 06:57 PM

I fail at charts and math in general. Can you explain how if we move up from 25 to say 16 what would the price be? Just curious. I did read the chart but it had way too many numbers for my liking.


16th would take a second or future second and third.

Moving to 18th/19th would just take a 3rd/4th.


#3312805 Cam Newton will not be the highest paid QB in NFL history

Posted by carpanfan96 on 05 April 2015 - 05:45 PM

Keep saying this, but Cam isn't going to Tango with anything less then an average close to 20 per. Just sitting pat contract wise gets him either early FA or the next three seasons at 18m average and all of it fully guranteed by the way of this season's option and two tags.

Coming at him and Cook with a Dalton/Kapernick type deal is laughable. Coming at him with a deal for 17-18 is Laughable as well when they can stand pat and make just as much and get two massive Paydays within 4 years of each other.

Gettleman is the one who is going to have to bend on these negotiations.

Panthers now have what 4-5 ST aces. Should be a much improved unit this upcoming season.


#3290423 Joe Montana NFL Football 16... AKA NFL 2k16... Madden's tyrannical monopo...

Posted by carpanfan96 on 19 March 2015 - 12:40 AM

The agreement has a loophole that 1st party titles CAN use the NFL license... just not multi-platform ones.

 

I have no fuging clue why they wouldn't use the NFL license if this really is a Microsoft exclusive.  It makes zero sense to go all out to contract 2K to create a 1st party football game (which they know would poo on EA's Xbox shares) and then just turn around and make some generic Arena League Football type game.

 

They know it's the NFL brand that sells.

 

I don't know.  I know it's pure false hope and naivety by this point, but maybe it's a smoke screen.  They have been keeping this whole thing rather close to the chest.  It wouldn't be hard at all to release some images with some misleading skins of gameplay before the game's release.  That happens a lot actually.

 

 

If that was the case 2k would have just made an exclusive game for a platform or Sony would have made a football game by now. This isn't a Xbox one/PC exclusive, that was a rumor, this doesn't even have any details attached to it except it's known that it doesn't have NFL teams in it because it doesn't have access to the NFL license. 

 

JM16's biggest draws will be if it's released on PC and it's story mode. If it's released on PC, it will take off because of the modding community and the lack of a proper football game on PC.
