LGR – The Sims 4 Tiny Living Stuff Review

[jazzed-out jazz music] Finally, a stuff pack that’s precisely what
I always wanted! The Sims 4 Tiny Living Stuff, where your sims
are shrunk down to a fraction of the size due to a mishap involving a baseball and a
broken window, and then — what? -It’s about tiny homes.
-Aw man really? I guess that makes more sense, sigh. All right so yeah, the pack’s called Tiny
Living Stuff, but instead of awesome shrunken adventures, it’s all about living in a relatively
undersized home. It costs $10 and is the sixteenth Sims 4 stuff
pack to date good grief what the balls. And I gotta say, even though I’d be way
more into a pack about miniaturized sims, I was still intrigued by Tiny Living here. Because yeah man, I’ve been rather tiny-curious
for years now, immediately sucked into all the YouTube channels and reality shows focusing
on the Tiny House Movement. And the whole idea is to make the most out
of a small space, rejecting the concept of buying a multi-thousand square foot home. I myself live in a house that’s about 800
square feet or 74 square meters, and while objectively not “tiny,” it’s certainly
a lot smaller than I could’ve chosen and that was very much on purpose. I’ve enjoyed the challenge of trying to
make the most of the space I have without piling a million things on top of each other,
so the chance to do so virtually in the The Sims 4 is absolutely my cup of nitro cold brewed
coffee. The first thing you’re greeted with on installing Tiny Living Stuff is a message about living in a tiny house and stuff. A pre-made tiny home has been provided to
plop down anywhere you like, acting as an example of what exactly constitutes a tiny
home in The Sims 4 universe. In case you’re unaware, a real life tiny
house is generally considered to be one under 37 square meters or 400 square feet. This example home in The Sims 4 is composed
of 32 tiles, and if we assume each tile is a square meter, then we’ve got 32 square
meters or 350 square feet, a bit below that of a tiny house IRL. However, Tiny Living Stuff lays out three
different tiers of tiny house, each with its own perks and requirements. The smallest being the Tier 1 “Micro Home”
at up to 32 tiles in size, Tier 2 is a “Tiny Home” at up to 64 tiles, and Tier 3 is a
“Small Home” at up to 100 tiles. The most fascinating aspect of these tiered
home sizes is that when you meet the requirements on a lot designed as a Residential Tiny Home, you’re provided a number of generous rewards for living there. Things separate from lot traits, like faster
learning, greater comfort, happier sims, healthier plants, and better relationships. So the less you do with doing more, the more
you’re rewarded for doing more with less! Er, by that I mean that, as of now, there’s
incentives to go small and a kind of odd punishment for having a huge house. Makes me wonder if they’ll balance it out
with a mansion-focused pack in the future. Heck they could even call it The Sims 4 Livin’
Large, I’d be down with that. Anyway yeah, this is a stuff pack packed with
stuff so let’s unpack it and stuff! First is an allotment of hair, accessories,
and clothing for pretty much everyone this time around, including the younginz. Fitting right in with the overall “hygge”
theme of living in a warm little cozy home, there’s a bunch of warm, cozy attire. Regardless of how much I want some of those
sweaters for real though, that’s just the garb and garment goods. Let’s get onto the main event, kicking off
with an assortment of single-tile desks and tables, suitable for all manner of desking
and tabling. Followed by a few decorative yet functional
items, including a lamp, readable books, and lighttable candles in a cluttered tray. Three chesty wardrobe shelving type things
for holding various objects and clothing. A patterned rug for plopping down in the middle
of the backyard or wherever. A pretty standard toilet and a sink that handily
works off-the-grid. Two TVs, one standing and one that attaches
to a wall, each pulling quadruple duty by also acting as a display shelf, a bookcase,
and a stereo. Various other wall-mountable items are here
too, including a mirror, a door, two shelves of random thingies, four potted plants strung
together, and a plant-inspired piece of artwork. Three sets of hanging light bulbs, each with
their own varying degrees of droopiness. An ottoman, that isn’t an ottoman I guess,
since it’s a pouffe? Whatever it is cats love it. There’s also a standard bed and a standard
loveseat. As well as this lamp that should provide storage
space according to its description, yet it’s totally unusable as such. It’s just a lamp. Seriously, why tout its supposed dual purpose as a shelf and then make it so you can’t set anything on it? At least it makes for decent kindling, so
I guess it does serve a second purpose after all. And finally, you also get three new chairs,
although two of them are slightly confusing at first. This dining chair doesn’t actually function
with the new dining table. For that you have to use these high chairs,
and once I realized that it was pretty awesome, letting me really cram in a buncha seating
in a super small space. Finally, the headlining new items of the Tiny
Living pack are Murphy Beds, with and without a built-in loveseat. And at first this seems pretty useful, since
you can fold them away when not in use and those wardrobe shelving units attach to the
sides for a clean-looking modular design. But really, Murphy Beds are… confusing. While I applaud the addition of new sleepytime
snuggle zones, the usage of them in this pack doesn’t make much practical sense. For one, they require the exact same 3×2 tile
floor space as a normal bed. You get a loveseat on one of them, sure, but
it still leaves tiles of unusable space underneath. And since sims can’t get into bed from the
front, only the sides, you need another set of tiles off to the left and right at least
half a tile wide. The worst part though is this stupid animation
that plays out far too often, where sims try to pull down the bed then fail in spectacular
fashion. It’d be fine if it happened one out of every
20 times or something, but nope, sims fail like every 3 or 4 times you open the dumb
thing. [bed fails, sim gets owned] Making this worse is the fact that this far-too-frequent animation comes with an unusually high risk of killing your sims! bed fails, sim dies] Now, okay, I’m all for new ways to take out bothersome sims, that’s just good times. But “Death by Murphy Bed” seems a bit
silly, and again, it’s tied to an unskippable animation that happens rather often. Yes, there are now bed upgrade options in
the game, accomplishing things like increasing comfort and preventing it from getting stuck. So you can alleviate the issue but still,
I’d rather it wasn’t so prevalent to begin with. And in my opinion, these repetitive slapstick failure animations stopped being cute like fifteen packs ago. So yeah, can’t say I’ll be using Murphy
Beds in my tiny builds going forward, since the way they work is annoying and their inclusion in this particular pack is questionable in the first place. Why not add them in the Discover University
pack, that would’ve made a ton more sense in my book, more so than a pack about itty
bitty 32-tile houses. I really think bunk beds would’ve been an
ideal addition to the Tiny Living pack instead, seeing as bunk beds actually do free up room,
providing two beds in a single 3×1 space. For that matter though, why not add better
loft options? Lofts are a staple of tiny home designs, and
making them in The Sims 4 means adding a second story with a cumbersome full-sized staircase. Ladders are used all the time in real life
tiny homes, but nope, nowhere to be found in Tiny Living. Even spiral staircases would be more space-efficient
but those still aren’t a thing either. For that matter, why not add steeper, narrower
normal stairs? Or at least provide some storage options underneath
them, which again, is something that you see all the time in actual tiny houses. Not that it matters too much I suppose, since
sims all have an infinite household inventory that hides as many items as you like within
a magic unseen void, hrm. Still, while I’m on the topic of things
I wish were included instead of murphy beds, why not convertible futons or pull out sofa
beds? Under-the-counter mini fridges or in-wall
ovens and microwaves? How about portable induction cooktops? Or over-the-sink shelf units and other kinds
of stackable knickknack storage things? Heck, composting toilets, solar power, and
rain catchers would’ve been nice, seeing as we’ve already got off-the-grid lots. Instead we get cumbersomely large homicidal beds and storage lamps that don’t store anything. At least they took the time to add Baby Yoda
to the game, so I guess that means it all evens out in the end, right? Heh, ahh now I’m just being grumpy, when
in reality Tiny Living is not the worst stuff pack by any means. In fact, I think it’s one of the better
ones for my playstyle. It’s just that this daggone game’s been
around for almost six years now, and after sixteen stuff packs, I’m more than a bit
fatigued. There are a number of disappointing aspects
to Tiny Living Stuff, no bones about it, and I know they’ve could’ve added just a bit
more in terms of useful objects and quality of life improvements. But they didn’t, and that’s just kinda
how it goes, we all know that. Still, I’ll personally be using a number
of the items added here going forward, along with building more tiny houses for the challenge
it provides and the rewards it unlocks, so you can glean from that what you will. [gratuitous fiery sim death] And if you enjoyed this look at the Tiny Living
Stuff pack, then maybe check out my let’s play that I did over on my other channel from
what I was just playing this and getting my thoughts together about the pack in the first
place. Or just stick around, there’s more videos
coming up every week on this channel. And as always, thank you for watching LGR!

NEW CROSSBOW! (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Crossbow)

What’s up guys, this is M3RKMUS1C and today. We’re back on modern warfare after 70 hours of downloading the update I think the model warfare patch file was around like 20 gigs on console, maybe like 48 on PC something like that I had to delete some games to be able to get this update But it’s finally here. And here’s pretty much what’s new as far as it goes for game modes They added capture the flag and they brought back shoot the ship which is just shoot house and shipment nothing too crazy there But now when you go to look at your weapons, you’ll see that you have 5 extra load outs That’s right guys a couple dozen gigs for a couple extra load outs right there has to be something better than that Are there any new guns? Oh Okay, I’m over exaggerating a little bit but they added a crossbow to modern warfare and it’s pretty badass Let’s check the whole thing out stylings and agile This high-performance crossbow fires 20 bolts 20 inch bolts with exceptional lethality Exclusive customization distinct functionality and unique ammunition types put this weapon in a class of its own even though it’s in the marksman rifle class Standard 20-inch bolts are recoverable and are undetected by trophy systems Ooh, I think in Pascal did it games trophy systems were blocking the crossbow now to actually unlock the cross Well, you have to buy 5000 supply drops. Just kidding. Thank god, that’s not the case But you actually just completed challenge You have to get 5 kills in 25 different matches using a marksman rifle with the reflex optic super fun Now look this challenge is obviously a lot better than having to spend money to try to get it but unfortunately for me I probably won’t be unlocking the crossbow even though it might seem like I’m some nerd that doesn’t do anything other than play call of Duty, I’m actually gonna be going out for a couple days. I’m gonna be going on a little trip I’m gonna be playing some things so I won’t be able to unlock the crossbow quite yet, but for sure when I come back I’m gonna be unlocking this crossbow and trying to cover it some more Ever since black ops were you had the akimbo shadow claws? the crossbow has been brought back in cold duty, and it just really hasn’t been as good as black ops 3 So I’m curious to see how Modern Warfare’s crossbow is. I guess it’s time to start grinding the challenge I guess this site should work if I want to unlock it But before I try to get it unlocked online, let’s see if I can use it in a private match That way I can hopefully show it off in this video. Oh, well, there it is. It’s just right there. Perfect Alright, I think I lucked out holy attachments. What’s you can get different cables you can get different arms I can go from tier X to wacky inflatable to man pretty quickly. It’s got a tag laser Oh my god, what so many different sites for this thing? That is crazy You got all these different stocks – oh my god while I was not expecting this different bolts as well Throw my tip explosive tips here. Guess what? It doesn’t look like you can get it at a Kimbo but it should still be pretty good in here. This is so interesting I don’t know exactly what’s gonna make this thing like better or worse I feel like I might just be playing against bots today and showing our different attachments and things like that I’m probably not gonna change the bolt for the crossbow quite yet. I want to see how it is Just like on its own I think this is pretty much gonna be the build that I test this thing out with right now We could test it out in gulag showers. This is gonna be great So, yeah for anyone watching this video if you want to play with the crossbow before unlocking it You can do it in a private match I’m not sure if they’re gonna continue to allow us to do that for a future new guns, but for now, it’s pretty nice Oh, look at this thing dude, it looks really cool. It looks like it pretty much has a built-in reflex sight It looks a lot like the red dot from cod4. This is really cool. Only get one shot at a time though okay, that it oh, I Think I’m gonna like this for online Let’s get a quality with against these Putrid BOTS. Okay, nevermind. I’ll take the stock off so I can change the bolt try the explosive one first Let’s see how the explosive is though. Oh, oh, it’s just like black ops one. That is so cool So you can sick people and then oh, well, it’s still an insta kill if you hit them So it’s oh maybe not maybe it depends on where you hit them to get that insta kill a headshot will kill them Oh my god, this is so cool. Let’s try out. The tear gas cartridge. This should be interesting Okay, so basically just the far corner Hey, wow, I feel like this is gonna be super annoying for online Oh my god. I thought I already hated the far corners, but I’m gonna be seeing this everywhere But Furillo, it doesn’t really seem like it’s the best attachment you could put on this thing. Well draw the thermite tip Her way she’s gonna keep melting them I feel like this thing with the thermite sip would be really annoying in domination when someone’s trying to capture a flag or in ground War I’m not just shooting that at the tanks. Holy fuck all of these so bad just constantly spanning him with thermite I would imagine that the thermite tips are probably weaker against the tanks, but you know, we got to test that out I’ll make sure to do that when I get this thing for real the scope-1. It’s pretty neat I mean it’s not like that differs from other scopes, but I feel like actually trying to hit a crosswalk wampie would be pretty tough Just look ghost. Oh my The reload is just too slow. But it yeah, I’m pretty sure they did that because it is a one shot So if you can reload this thing too fast, you just be getting tons of insta kills and you know, people are gonna complain Oh There’s the quad feet. It’s rolling Fuck I can’t believe I’m missing shots against bots. This is private match. I Wish you could get collapse in this thing. That’d be so cool, or possibly even a tri bolt attachment I was kind of hoping that there would be a Kimbo for this because I’ve talked about this before I think it’d be really fun. If autoworker had a Kimbo gun It would probably make this game more casual like model want for it too, but I don’t think they’re gonna do it It’s feed time, come on no All right. I think I’m done again spots. The new crossbow is definitely super fun I can’t wait to actually unlock it and use it online so I think for the time being I’ll probably try to play some shipment and get some progress for this challenge because there’s definitely lot Of fun and potential here with this crossbow. It’s definitely a pretty grindy challenge though I know this is really bad But what I’m curious to see is if you can get five kills in a match and then just leave and actually get that progress Account, that’s what I want to do. I’m curious to see if everyone’s actually gonna be using marksman rifles Hopefully this increases the amount of weapon variety in pubs. Oh, there’s some people using the card on dak I bet All right. There’s one I’m keeping track. I’ll leave – oh Fuck three I once had a splick wat be there There’s four and five. Alright, let’s get here. That was fast. Did that actually count though? It did oh shit, dude all about the cheese. This challenge is so hard I bet you guys are glad you clicked on this video if you wanna play with the crossbow immediately either just pick it up in a public match or just use it in private match and Hey, it looks like you can choose the challenge for the kills All right I don’t pause it enter up right here because you’ll actually see later in the video that you can’t necessarily Choose the challenge and you’ll see why soon let’s be real if you have to spend two days downloading a 50 gig update you might As well just change the challenge. I can’t find anyone. This’ll wait. Does that guy at the crossbow? Wait, what’s Iceland? Someone’s got a variance of it what you get a variance. Oh shit I might saying this Lobby then I want to know how someone has a variant of this thing already Oh, I bet you can buy it in the store or something. I’ll get my 5 kills that I’ll leave and check that out It’s feed time let’s get it come on More people no, okay. Oh shit. There’s a crossbow. Give it give it give it. Oh I couldn’t pick it up There we go. Picked up. Someone else’s gun. What the fuck? How many people argue about that Cal dude, no, ho I want to feed Our Emily just want to make sure I’m still getting my progress looks like a oh I didn’t oh, okay. That’s weird I don’t know why I counted for the first match, but it didn’t give me progress that time Okay pump the brakes because maybe it won’t count every game or maybe I just didn’t get enough killed. I don’t know. That’s weird Oh, yeah, let’s see if there’s something in this store. Yep. There you go. Sneaky sneaky That’s how you’re gonna be able to get it quickly personally. I don’t think I’m gonna be buying the bundle It’s not that worth it and you should do it you can do the challenge is just get it for free It’s not that hard to do. It might be a little time consuming but probably not worth the money I can’t want to overkill with another marksman rifle. I’m actually gonna go for a swap feed. This could be fun Everyone’s doing the challenge. Let’s go Oh swap one so slow. Why is it so slow? No Come on, this is definitely a really fun class to use though Whoof Oh my fuck come on that one swap to the cars is too slow. Oh Shit come on swap Anthony marker. Oh shit the noscope more. Oh fuck dude. What the fuck? Oh Why did I miss that shot dude that fee was fucking sick, oh my god, I was such an awesome six man Yeah, there’s really not a need to buy the variant when you can go for sick ass clips like that. Oh My switch again No, okay, I’m mark Reeth, you know What you need to miss it? Oh Fuck man. This is so much fun. Oh My nails bother with the food I’m gonna spawn three people behind me man. Come on. I’m personally really addicting this challenge Dude the intensity. I mean if I miss a lot of shot, that just looks really cool. Oh my god This might be one of the most like fun class built at try. Holy fuck Oh Come on switch switch switch switch now just do slow some of these weapon swaps are definitely a little too slow Come on new who are they gonna spawn off right here shit. Oh my god. Oh, This glass is so much fun to use though Ooh boy those clap Oh, oh I’m the current Nicki just too slow. Do what the fuck was that 5 min? Oh my god I think I got a Klat in there the potential in this Lobby is just so good Almost a triple. Oh I blew him up Dan shit, dude. Oh No, I do wish to keep going on man look at that, I got 90 kills of that class that is awesome I had to have played you know, so ridiculous. This was the going clear ight here, so No, let’s go for the swap and then two more so ridiculous Oh, yeah, I think only for this crossbows gonna be like one of the most fun challenges ever for this game I’m really hoping that Infinity Ward has more plans to do stuff like this now. Hopefully that counted it didn’t count What’s ok, that’s alright. Maybe it’s cuz I started putting more attachments on I don’t know that doesn’t make any sense to me I’ll have to make like a separate class with really barebone attachments, but that’s gonna do it for this video Thank you guys very much for watching I hope you guys enjoyed watching me cover the new crossbow modern warfare as soon as I get back I’ll do my best to try to unlock the crossbow and use it some more do some more videos on it as far as it Goes for myth-busting and being able to make different class videos and just show off the crossbow some more There’s a lot of potential here. And with that being said I really do Hope you guys enjoyed this video If you guys did it and you want to see some more new stuff on modern warfare Make sure to drop a like I’ll see you guys later

Top 5 Nastiest Rivalries in Sports – EXPLAINED!

Ninh explains the Top 5 Nastiest Rivalries
in All of Sports Everyone has witnessed some heated rivalries
in their favourite sports. But there are some that are more than just
mutual disdain. In some cases, these particular rivals go
out of their way to hurt their opponents in one form or another. Here are the top 5 nastiest rivalries in all
of sports. #5 Most of the NHL. In a sport where fighting is tolerated and
vicious hits encouraged, it’s no surprise that many teams have a problem with each other. Whenever a rivalry happens, tensions are high
and martial justice is doled literally every few seconds. So who hates each other in the NHL? How about Ottawa/Toronto, Toronto/Montreal,
Montreal/Boston, New York Rangers/Boston, New York Islanders/Boston, EVERYBODY/Boston,
Chicago/Detroit, Detroit/Colorado, Washington/Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh/Philadelphia and most notably:
all 32 teams and Gary Bettman. Just turn the TV onto any NHL game and you’ll
most likely find a team playing someone they absolutely hate. #4 The State of Origin
It’s state vs state. Mate vs Mate. The State of Origin is a series of annual
exhibition rugby league games played between players from NSW and Queensland in Australia. This results in the unique scenario of teammates
of a professional team going up against each other in the State of Origin. What’s so bad about the State of Origin? Well apart from the two areas of Australia
vying for rugby supremacy – it’s basically a brawl disguised as a rugby game. The whole MO is to basically hurt your opponents
as much as possible and pretend that you’re actually playing by the rules. Vicious tackles, punches thrown and pummeling
anyone that’s wearing a different coloured jersey, is basically the bread and butter
skill of these games. And this results in … well, it results in
something like this. And it’s fantastic. #3 Galatasaray vs Fenerbace
What happens when most of Turkey supports one of two football teams? And then what happens when both teams are
the most successful in the country, mostly winning their titles and cups against their
direct rival? You get this fixture. What makes this nasty isn’t necessarily
the play on the field, but the fans off it. The Turkish people are masters of intimidating
opposing players and fans. Whether it’s through fireworks, fancy displays,
chanting mercilessly at opposing players in their hotel rooms or just trying to murder
you in the street. Crowd violence and fans being stabbed or killed
for wearing the wrong shirt is quite normal and this has unfortunately resulted in opposing
fans not being able to enter their rivals stadium. They call Galatasaray’s stadium ‘hell’
for a reason. #2 India vs Pakistan
Cricket is usually seen as a gentlemen’s game. But not when these two are concerned. It’s no secret that India and Pakistan absolutely
hate each other, and the political tensions of the two countries are certainly well documented. Rather than go at war with each other (again),
they fight each other on the cricket pitch instead. There’s a political agenda every time these
two teams meet, and should they experience defeat, the player’s lives are at risk from
extremists threatening to kill them if they lose. It’s gotten so bad, that the Indian Government
has prohibited their own players from going into Pakistan for fear of their cricketers
being murdered. Lots of intimidation between players, dirty
behavior, questionable tactics and plenty of sweet chin music, all to get an edge to
win the game. And the pressure to win this particular fixture
is biblical. Ticket requests for this fixture far surpass
any other, and when they faced each other during the 2011 World Cup in India, a 1/5th
of the world’s population tuned in to watch. Should they ever meet in an actual World Cup
final, I guarantee you that all hell will break loose. #1 Boca Juniors vs River Plate. The nastiest rivalry by far is between Argentina’s
two most popular and successful football teams. Boca Juniors & River Plate. They’re both based in the same city, and
similar to the Galatasary vs Fenerbace rivalry, most of the country supports either one or
the other. Players fear for their lives and take their
own safety into their own hands, because the fans, are complete animals that are seriously
out of control. These fans routinely throw flares and objects
at opposing players (including sometimes human excrement) and in a couple of famous cases,
they use pepper spray and tear gas to try and injure the players as they’re walking
out onto the field. That’s just the fans, who by the way, also
have a penchant of stabbing each other in the street. And I’ve not even started about the foul
play on the field. It’s pretty nasty to watch. The fixture is so dangerous for both players
and spectators, that matches are heavily enforced by police and in the famous case of the 2018
Copa Libertadores, they had to abandon the match and play it 6,500 miles away in Spain
because it became too dangerous to play the game in Argentina. Honorable mention goes to the Red Sox vs Yankees
rivalry, the two cities generally don’t like each other and neither do their baseball
teams. Rangers vs Celtic – the Glasgow rivalry
that’s started with a difference of religion and now they hate each other just because
it’s fun. And the Ohio State Buckeyes vs the Michgan
State Wolverines, though it’s been pretty one sided recently. These are what I believe to be the nastiest
rivalries in sports. And I could have mentioned more, but what
do you think? Do you think there are any that are nastier? Have you experienced more hatred than this? Let me know in the comments section below
and remember to like share and subscribe. Obviously. Ninh Ly – www.ninh.co.uk – @NinhLyUK

Dragon Quest Games – RANKED – Worst to Best

Welcome back everyone, with Dragon Quest XI
worldwide release getting closer every day, I thought I’d put together a ranking of
every mainline entry in the series, so for today’s video we are looking at every Dragon
Quest game from worst to best. Also, this list only covers numbered titles,
so the many DQ spinoffs out there will not be included. Transition The first Dragon Quest is also the interestingly
the worst Dragon Quest. Don’t get me wrong, I actually do like the
game quite a bit and its innovation cannot be understated. DQI is the first Japanese roleplaying game,
merging together elements of western and eastern game design philosophies to produce a title
like no one has seen before. The game incorporates an open world design
and forces players to piece together clues to eventually work your way to the end boss. It doesn’t hold your hand even a step of
the way and overall the game is extremely experimental in nature, with a lot of tedious
elements being present including only one save point being present in the game world
and a seriously clunky menu system. Thankfully, the developers behind the game
know how to learn from their mistakes, so the franchise only improves from here. The next game is probably the strangest entry
on the list for a number of reasons. Dragon Quest X is the only entry on the list
that is not a single player role playing game. It is actually an MMO and so far has only
ever released in Japan. I had to jump through a few hoops to play
it including getting a little program that automatically translates the Japanese text
to English and let me tell you, I am a bit skeptical on how accurate this is. “Weird stuff” Uhhh Overall, the game hardly feels like a mainline
Dragon Quest game, it’s more of a spinoff to be honest. In DQX you do loot quests, raids with friends
and there’s even a bit of story to the game. I’m ranking it low because it is just so
different than the main games and I probably only enjoyed it more than DQI, but for an
MMO it is quite good and if it ever comes out in English, I would definitely get a membership. Dragon Quest VI. It’s a game that took forever to make its
way to the west. Originally a Super Famicom game, it got its
English Nintendo DS remake over fifteen years later improving the game in many ways. The game sees a hero who has to travel between
alternate realities, meeting new party members to eventually face off against the evil Murdaw. It is quite a good game, but overall, out
of the DS Dragon Quest games I’d say it’s the worst of the bunch and widely considered
a black sheep among the fanbase. There’s just nothing overly remarkable about
it, the story is just decent, the party members actually feel a bit flat with less companion
dialogue than DQV had and it just does not shine as brightly as IV, V and IX do which
is why I’m ranking it a bit lower. Dragon Quest II comes right off the heels
of the first game and immediately you can tell it is far improved. It still follows largely the same formula
as the first game, with cryptic hints leading you to explore a game world that truly feels
open. The world is huge, fun to explore in any direction
you want and so many elements from the first game have been fixed including multiple save
points, a more content filled world with more variety in equipment and multiple party members. The game is a great sequel that really paves
the way for the series. Dragon Quest III is an iconic classic. Serving as the origin story of the series
legendary hero, Erdrick, Dragon Quest III is an epic adventure in an open world that
massively improves upon its two predecessors. The game features a day and night cycle, the
new class system which gives players thousands of possible combinations and it introduces
a new party system which allows the player to name and create multiple characters with
different classes that come with their own strengths and weaknesses. It’s a revolutionary game that serves as the
refinement of the series and it truly feels like a role playing adventure, with players
really needing to think about every choice they make going forward. The game also improves the narrative of the
series greatly, boasting a very well thought out story involving Erdrick’s quest to defeat
the evil Baramos. This strong focus on the narrative helps bring
the world to life and the game still retains much of the investigative gameplay that the
series is known for. The GameBoy Color remake makes the original
NES classic even better. This is one GameBoy game that should not be
missed. Dragon Quest IX. This is the only game on the entire list that
is available exclusively on only one system, the Nintendo DS and it is the last Dragon
Quest game developed by Level-5 . The game is one of, if not the most visually and mechanically
impressive DS games I’ve ever seen. It features full animated cutscenes, 3D graphics
and a massive world. The game also made many changes for the series,
discarding the random monster encounters in favor of having monsters out on the field. The game follows a Celestrian, an angel like
being, who falls to Earth and has to make his or her way back to the observatory. The game is very unique in that for the first
time in the series, you can fully customize your characters down to how they look, their
gender, and even the clothes they wear. Armor and weapons actually change the appearance
of your character this time around, ensuring that no two people have the same characters. In addition, the game brings back the same
party system of Dragon Quest III, which I actually am not a huge fan of for this game. Many people note that because you make your
own party members with custom classes, names and looks, they lose out on having companions
with personalities. The companions in the game feel like empty
husks and they do not talk to you, unlike the DS remakes of IV, V, and VI which feature
unique story companions with interesting personalities that talk to you whenever you want to. This system was okay back when DQIII was out,
but this kind of party system is a bit outdated at this point. Regardless of this, the game overall is extremely
good, featuring an epic story, soundtrack, and even multiplayer options. It really showed off what the DS was capable
of and will prove as a good reason to go back to the system. Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen. It’s not just a name, the game is split up
into chapters. DQIV, originally on the NES and later remade
on the DS in an unfinished state and once again remade on mobile devices in a finished
state, is a game that kicked off the Zenithian trilogy of the games including V and VI. The game is structured in a very unique way,
focusing on multiple different characters from around the world. You play as these different characters and
learn their story, gradually leading up to everyone meeting up to defeat the evil Psaro
the Manslayer. The game extremely cool because of the way
it builds up the various characters you eventually meet and at times feels like multiple games
in one. There’s tons of party members too and they
all have unique abilities, making for a diverse lineup. Earlier I said the game was incomplete on
the DS. I really meant the localization was incomplete. The English version of Dragon Quest IV on
the DS removes one of the coolest features of the franchise, party chat. Party chat basically works by pressing the
B button whenever you want to talk to your companions and they will say something unique
almost every time depending on the situation you are in, really making them feel like people. Without this feature, thousands of lines of
dialogue were lost, which is a huge shame because this is a game with so many great
characters with great personalities and you won’t be able to even talk to them, however
luckily the mobile port completed the game and gives us all of this party chat dialogue. It is identical to the DS version in every
other way so it is the best version of the game for Westerners. If you have a phone, and yes you do, pick
this one up. This is the one everyone knows about. Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
for the PlayStation 2. Dragon Quest VIII follows a band of four adventurers
tracking down a wicked Jester to undo a curse on an entire kingdom. The game’s visuals are timeless. It’s a PS2 game, but it looks fantastic, with
cel shaded visuals really bringing out the art style of Akira Toriyama. The game even has fully voiced scenes in the
English version and is the only game in the series so far to have this. Dragon Quest VIII presentation is what really
sets it apart and its story, full cutscenes and the interactions between its many characters
bring it to life. It introduces some new mechanics as well including
the ability to psyche up, the new skill point system that allows different paths for weapon
types and an alchemy pot to create new items and weapons with. The skill paths are especially great as they
allow for so many different play styles, which brings me back to this game again and again. That’s not to say that it’s a perfect game,
the battles are a bit slow to accommodate the flashy animations and you’re working
with only four different companions, which is a lot less than most games in the series,
leading to a less diverse team but when it comes down to the game’s massively improved
presentation all while maintaining the feel of the series, I would say that this is a
huge step for the franchise and one of the finest games on the PS2. Imagine a game that takes over a hundred hours
to beat. With thousands of lines of dialogue and tons
of story to get through. That’s what Dragon Quest VII is. Originally released on the original PlayStation
and nicely remade on the 3DS, Dragon Quest VII represents a huge turning point for the
series. The game stars a trio of kids who travel back
in time to restore forgotten parts of the world. It’s a super mysterious game and is very notorious
for a two hour long intro section in which you complete very challenging puzzles reminiscent
of the game Myst and along the journey you meet more characters than you can remember. The game is just huge, boasting one of gaming’s
largest scripts with over 70,000 lines of dialogue, and it introduces my absolute favorite
feature in the Dragon Quest series, the Party Chat feature, which works well to hear the
comments of Kiefer and Maribel who both have defining personalities. In addition to just how massive the game is,
it ramps up the investigative aspect of the time travel in the game requiring the players
to seriously think at times and piece together the next objective without being told exactly
what to do. The new class system is also really great,
allowing you to change the classes of you and your companions while maintaining their
personalities. Overall, its the definition of a hidden gem
and definitely the PS1’s swan song. Dragon Quest V is the best game in the entire
franchise. Its a title that takes everything good about
Dragon Quest and puts it into one package. The game is about family, friendship, and
good versus evil. The story follows one hero’s transition
from childhood to adulthood where he journeys to save his mother from the clutches of the
underworld. It’s an epic, emotional tale with extremely
well written characters and a living, breathing world that is constantly changing around you
as the years go by in the game. It also introduces many new aspects to the
series including the ability to recruit monsters you’ve fought into your already bustling
party that includes a wife that you choose yourself as well as many friends you meet
across the journey. The characters in Dragon Quest V are so well
written that you can feel a bond between them and the protagonist and the Party Chat feature
in this title is the most robust so far, with your party members having something to say
after almost any situation or talking to any NPC you meet. There is so much attention to detail put into
Dragon Quest V its ridiculous and it ends up being the most enjoyable entry in the series
to me, with every feature one could want, an extremely diverse group of multiple interesting
party members and an epic story where you find new locations on your journey to defeat
the franchise’s most evil villain yet. Dragon Quest is not just the best game in
the franchise, it very well may be the best RPG ever and is a must play for fans of the
genre. I hope you guys enjoyed the video. I wanted to thank everyone for helping me
get to one hundred subscribers recently, I couldn’t do it without everyone’s support. If your name isn’t listed, I apologize,
some people’s privacy settings don’t allow me to know you’re subbed to me. Regardless, I hope to make more content for
you all to enjoy in the future. See you next time.

The Rules of Flickerball – THE WORST SPORT EVER INVENTED!

Ninh explains, the Rules of Flickerball.
The object of the game is to score more points than the opposing team.
The game is played on a field that’s …. Erm … it can be any size field?
That can be of any size, and is played between two teams of … and there can be any number
of players? A minimum of two players per team. The ball
used in Flickerball can be an American Football, a soccer ball, a rugby ball, a dodgeball … basically
any ball will do. The game starts with a jump ball. The team
that receives the ball must only pass backwards or laterally initially. There are two ways
to move the ball towards the goal. You may move only three steps forward with
the ball, or be in possession of the ball whilst moving backwards or sideways for a
maximum of 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, you must either pass to a teammate or shoot the
ball towards the goal. To score points you must throw the ball into
the goal. These goals are situated at opposite ends of the field, and are 6ft above the ground.
They’re basically a piece of plywood with a hole cut out of the middle. I shit you not.
If you cannot afford a piece of plywood, using a stolen tire from your nearest ghetto is
acceptable. If you successfully shoot the ball into the
hole, this is a goal and is worth 2 points. And, if you miss the hole, but hit the plywood
surround – this is worth 1 point. The game is played in either one 40 minute
period, or two 20 minute halves. Highest score at the end of time, wins.
That’s not so bad? Well, sadly the rules get more complicated.
Any attempt at shooting at the goal results in the ball being awarded to the other team.
Whilst you are allowed to pass the ball to a teammate, if a pass is incomplete and not
caught, the ball is awarded to the other team. If a pass is deflected by a member of the
opposing team, it’s a free ball and anyone can take possession of it.
You cannot pass or shoot the ball in the free throw lane, which is apparently this area
here. If the ball leaves the area of play, the ball
is awarded to the team who did not touch it last.
Flickerball is designed to complicated. Flickerball is designed so that rules are
more important than the actual game itself. Flickerball is designed to be no fun whatsoever.
Flickerball is designed to suck. Designed. To Suck.
So why on earth would you play this game? The US Air force uses flickerball as a military
training exercise. They use it to evaluate cadets in stressful, confusing and high pressure
situations. All of which are present in this game due to its complicated rules, odd structure
of play, and the lack of consistency in both the rules and the format. Every move you make
on the field, is being evaluated by your superiors and should you suck at the sport that sucks,
this will reflect badly in your evaluations. No pressure then.
There’s just a few other things you’ll need to know before playing or watching Flickerball.
For example. Fouls.
Flickerball is a no contact sport, and these are considered as fouls.
Should you break one of the rules, a free throw is awarded to the other team at the
spot of the foul. Even swearing and protesting calls are considered
as fouls. Fuck. Heckling.
Members of the team who aren’t on the field (and any spectators watching) are allowed
to hurl abuse towards the players. This results in harsh American insults such as …
The players are not allowed to retaliate, doing so will result in a foul and the ball
is awarded to the other team. Variations.
Flickerball is not consistently played by the same rules across America. Each region
of the United States has its own variation of the rules. Some play with a three point
line, some play where they can only pass backwards or sideways and
…. Okay this is crazy. I’m not doing anymore. I should have renamed this video. Ninh can’t
explain: the Rules of Flickerball. Actually, yes I can – I just did. Ninh won’t explain
the Rules of Flickerball … because this sport is just shit stupid.
If you do like this kind of video where I’m ripping the crap out of stuff, let me know
in the comments section below. Special shout out to my guy Spencer Kassimir
for introducing me to this hilariously awful sport. Follow the guy on Twitter and if you
have actually enjoyed this video – please be sure to like share and subscribe. It really
does take me ages to make one of these things and good karma is very much appreciated.
Follow me on Twitter also and share this video on Reddit, but in the meantime …. Enjoy

GTA Online Best Vehicle Discounts (16th January 2020) – GTA 5 Weekly Car Sales Guide #21

Hello everyone I’m Broughy1322 and in this
video I’ll be going over the various vehicle discounts that are now active in GTA Online
as of Thursday 16th January 2020. All of these are gonna be available for 1 week until Thursday
23rd January. So first of all the Karin Sultan Classic was
released today. It’s in the Sports class and can be purchased from the Southern San Andreas
Super Autos site just over 1.7 million dollars, or just under 1.3 million if you use it in
a casino heist finale as leader. It has a decent lap time and is the quickest of the
3 Sultan variants (including the Sultan RS in the Supers class) but won’t be able to
compete in sports class races unless there are significant off-road sections. Check the
description & pinned comment for lap time & top speed ranking videos for the Sultan
Classic from earlier today if you haven’t seen them already. The podium vehicle this week is the Everon,
which can be won by spinning the Lucky Wheel in the Casino. It’s in the Off-Roads class
and normally sets you back just under 1.5 million dollars. It’s another big truck and
doesn’t really do much that other big trucks in the game do already, so it’s quite a forgettable
vehicle and certainly isn’t quick. But if you wanted one since the Casino Heist DLC
dropped now is the time to try and get it. The Premium Race this week is Crossing Paths,
which is an old style lap race for the Sports Classics class. I take back what I said last
week as this is probably the most corner heavy premium race, and as usual the Turismo Classic
will give you the best winning chance as we know from the recently released 2020 lap time
and top speed videos for the Sports Classics class. Also, the Regular Time Trial this week
is Elysian Island II, with the RC Time Trial being Cemetery. In terms of regular vehicle discounts, there’s
money off some Casino Heist vehicles already. The main beneficiary of this is 25% off the
Vagrant which, being the new quickest car in the Off-Roads class, has a much more palatable
(but still not great) cost of 1.2 million dollars if you unlock the trade price. There’s
also 25% off the Retinue Mk II, Komoda, Boxville and Bugstars Burrito, but none of these are
top of their classes for racing and in the case of the Burrito you can simply get it
for free by the same method as the Lifeguard. If you haven’t seen my video on that I’ll
link it in the description. There’s also 35% off the Schlagen GT and Gauntlet Hellfire,
as well as 40% off the XA-21, Osiris, Novak, and Turismo Classic (which will be handy for
the Premium Race if you don’t have one already). Apart from the Turismo none of these are really
needed to be competitive in races though, and you can of course find out the lap times
and top speeds of all of the vehicles that I’ve mentioned here by checking out the playlist
links in the description and pinned comment. In terms of discounts specifically for Twitch
Prime members who’ve linked their Rockstar Social Club accounts, it definitely seems
like the big 70-80% discounts on specific vehicles that we used to see aren’t coming
back unfortunately, but as usual you will get the extra 10% off the regular discounts
I mentioned earlier. That brings the Vagrant down to just under 1.1 million dollars for
the trade price and 1.4 for the non-trade price. You’d also make your money back on
the Turismo Classic by winning 4 premium races if you buy it at the 350k it costs for Twitch
Prime members. Also if you do have Twitch Prime and you haven’t already make sure you’re
giving your free subscription to a Twitch streamer each month as well. It doesn’t have
to be me, but make sure you’re giving it to someone as you’re basically supporting them
with a $2.50 donation without any extra cost to you. I’ll be back with another video just like
this next Thursday, the 16th January, where the new vehicle will either be the Outlaw
Off-Road car, or the V-STR Sports Car, and we’ll go through everything that has changed
(after I’ve done the testing videos of course). Feel free to subscribe and turn on notifications
so you don’t miss it. Thanks a lot for watching everyone, and I’ll see you next time.
