  1. I was going to say Mario as well. I've never seen a game with so many spinoffs. But since you already gave that one, the only other two I can think of would be Zelda and Sonic. They both have so many oddball entries in their franchise that it can't be said that they don't do any kind of spinoff.

  2. I can't sleep if it is too hot or too cold in my room. The temperature has to be just right for me to be able to get a good night of sleep.

  3. Linux Distros short for Distributions are just different versions of Linux created by other people. Since Linux is an open-source operating system, anyone can make their own version of it and call it whatever they want. Ubuntu for example is a Linux distribution. It uses the same code, but expands upon it to make it their own. Ubuntu has other versions like Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Xubuntu and a few more. Kubuntu is like Ubuntu but uses a different file system I believe. Xubuntu I think is supposed to be a low resource OS that can run on older hardware and Edubuntu is more geared towards education purposes. There are a ton of different ones out there, Wikipedia has a good list of them, even puts them in their own categories - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_distributions

  4. Batteries don't last forever. They loose thier ability to retain a charge after being charged and depleted so many times. So whilst its true gaming increases the power output of (what I assume is) a laptop making a battery deplete faster, that's not actually the problem.

  5. Funny enough, I only found this out when I had just sold my WII. In my opinion, I think the WII and WII U were way ahead of their time in terms of what they were trying to implement. It's the execution that was extremely poor by Nintendo.

  8. Coordination skills? Definitely but memory, it depends on the types of games you're playing. There have been a few research papers that have pointed to the fact that puzzle games improved working memory in adults.

  9. I used to collect MGS stuff and some Nintendo accessories when I was younger but I've grown out of the habit over time. Plus, I don't have space to store the gaming stuff I'd collect.

    Smartest decision

    I think the smartest decision I've made is leaving most people I grew up with and went to school with. I have been much happier with the people I kept in my life.

  11. One of biggest impact of the existence of social media platforms on gaming is on publicity and awareness of both the games and the gamers as well. With the use of social media platforms, gamers can now stream their games, become popular like celebrities and make millions of dollars in the process.

    Driver 2

    Anyone here remember playing Driver 2? I remember it mostly for allowing you to exit and enter vehicles. The original game didn't have such a feature and forced you to use the same car until it was damaged. But Driver 2 allowed you to continue your mission as long as you found a suitable replacement car in time I was huge on the driver games, especially the first one, but I enjoyed the second one even more. Hell I still have a memory card with the save file for it probably. Been thinking about booting up my PS2 to see if the file is still there. The funny thing about my save file, is that I'm pretty sure it's like the last mission of the game, but I could never get through it. I just remember you have to chase this helicopter, and I'm pretty sure there is a stingy time limit too, because Driver had to have those time limits for pretty much every mission. But idk, it still has a fond place in my heart, maybe it's because of nostalgia, but I did enjoy the game growing up. It was far better than Driver 3, that's for sure. Here's the first mission of the game. It has not aged super well, but it's still impressive to me how good the destruction was, as well as the driving mechanics. Did anyone here ever beat it?

  15. You're very correct. I had to look that up and found out the same thing as the licenses being talked about have to do with the game’s music. During the The Line’s menu screen, Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of The Star Spangled Banner are all part of it while the game’s soundtrack like Martha and The Vandellas- Nowhere to Run all had the licenses expired.

  16. I always liked the design of the PS2. Maybe it's because I missed the entire PS2 era, but I just liked the design. The PS3 just looks like shit. Like all they cared about at the time was getting a console on the shelves. The PS4 was kinda slick, but nothing special. I do really like the design of the PS5. I think it looks amazing. Not to mention that it has the most comfortable controller in all of gaming. In my opinion at least. With the PS1, it wasn't anything super special. Sony was kinda using it as a test to see how gamers would feel about them entering into the video game market. And holy shit did gamers love it! If you want my honest opinion, since the PS1 was released, the PlayStation fanbase has grown exponentially, and I honestly think there's a highly likely chance that they have surpassed Nintendo. Xbox, while one of the Big 3, isn't really holding its own. Everything that I have read, isn't giving the Series X/S good reviews. Why do I keep doing this? Why do I always get off topic?

  17. The arc in Walker’s character was the urgent need or selfish desire to be a hero. It's what made him unhinged in the game with how acted throughout it.

    Valentines Day

    I don't know if it's an age thing but I don't even care that much about my own birthday anymore. Valentine's day doesn't hold that much significance to me or my partner because we always show love and affection for each other.

    least fave weapon?

    I'd rather go unarmed than trying to use a bow especially when fighting multiple enemies. A bow is worthless unless you're extremely skilled.

  20. As someone who WAS trying to complete my Saturn collection, but has had to stop because...I just can't afford it, yeah. I'm worried about the prices of games constantly rising. I am somewhat hopeful that the recent decline in the collector market popularity will indicate falling prices, at least somewhat, then I could snag some other games I'm looking for on other systems, but for the most part collecting as a whole is beyond me.

  21. That's the risk, definitely. There are going to be hunts where you find nothing or nothing of interest to you, and there are going to be hunts where you find a lot of "meh" titles, but that's what makes the hunts where you find the truly great stuff worthwhile. It's like anything in life, you've got your share of disappointments that aren't fun, but they make the great moments worthwhile!

  25. I thought it was nice of Konami to just drop a new game for free. It shows they are trying to make up for their past misdeeds, and all people can do is forgive or forget about the ill-fated Hideo Kojima era. Unfortunately, yeah. So many gamers are still throwing dirt at them, some 10 years later after Konami chose to cancel Silent Hills. I really thought as a game with no cost, it was well worth the long wait to have this spin off Silent Hill: The Short Message setting up exciting future titles. You definitely feel the spirit of P.T. in the game as you are caught by the monster and sent kicking back to the last checkpoint. Sure, it technically isn't really about the town of Silent Hill any more in a sense, because the story is set in Germany, I believe. But all the same, other games have taken place elsewhere in the timeline in the past as well. Silent Hill is back... with a vengeance!

  26. Before I address the topic I need to ask, is there particular reason you posted this to the PC sub-forum? On the face of it this looks like a topic with relevance to players on any platform, not just PC. If there is no good reason for this being here I will move this to the General Gaming Forum as that seems like a better fit. On topic, I've never been a fan of short/mid range rapid fire weapons like SMG's. I'm never accurate with them and they bleed ammo. I'm more a fan of single shot power and accuracy over a high fire rate. If I wanted a short range hip fire weapon, I'd have a shotgun instead. The one gun of that type that I have liked is the Spray n' Pray from Fallout 4 mostly because you don't need to be accurate with it and it's OP as hell.

  27. You are 100% correct and insightful about other classic medium made into a game. It’s hard to pinpoint where they are wired differently. I think they are trying to please the masses so much that they forget about the foundations of simple fun. Just total…fuckin…simple….fun…

  28. This is absolutely how I call it and I can sure as hell tell you that they wouldn't care so much about any of those 80's or 90's shows, movies, or even books if they're made into a video game. I would say that they are wired differently from us.

  29. So State of Play is tonight, I believe. Rumours indicate that Until Dawn is returning, but the Silent Hill series ought to be shown too. Konami really hasn't been putting out a great deal of anything of note on the games, despite the remake of 2 and other projects being announced in the fall a few years back. But they decided to slag off that 'Ascension' garbage recently with an amusing, "It's trauma" merchandise line. So even Konami knows it totally sucks balls. And that's certainly saying something. Maybe be careful as to who gets to use your IP the next time, huh?

    Hi @Heatman, nice to see you again. As good a game as Hogwarts Legacy is, it's difficult to see what category the game had a real chance at winning. The design and music were directly taken or at least heavily inspired by the movies, so it wouldn't have made sense to be nominated for anything related to those and let's be honest, there were better RPG's and story-centric games this year. I'm not saying the controversy surrounding JK Rowling had nothing to do with the game's lack of nominations at TGA, but it there were both better and worse games that did what Hogwarts Legacy did better, even if it was in only one or two areas

  31. There are some video games with strong fanbase. No matter how bad the games gets, they'll still play it. Although, it's not smart on the part of developers to intentionally made bad games because they are obviously going to kill the games reputation especially if it's an ongoing game series.

    Godzilla Minus One

    I would think it would be available on Max eventually seeing as a lot of the other Godzilla franchise is on there. It sounds quite interesting to say the least, I will be excited to watch it if it hits one of the streaming services I have.

  33. The ideal sleeping weather is typically cool, with a temperature around 65 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 20 degrees Celsius). Extremes of heat or cold can disrupt sleep, so it's best to keep the room temperature comfortable and adjustable to personal preferences for a good night's rest.

  34. In nazi America, blue states are safe, but LGBTQ are still vulnerable in public because Nazis want to earn their stripes so they beat gays, along with minority old people and women because Nazis are pussies. They are scared to fight one on one against a man that can fight back. It’s the typical abusive cowardly mentality. Thing is, republicans have a lot of gay fantasies. The more they hate against gays, the more they fantasize about their closeted thoughts. Look at Moms for Liberty, a far right anti LGBTQ organization that is doing most of the book bans in schools. Bridget Ziegler is the co-founder for moms for liberty and is now in hot water for doing threesome sex acts with another woman and her husband Christian (ironic name) who is the republican chair in Florida, which is top leadership of the Republican Party. He was accused of rape. Think about that. These fucks bring their politics into schools, ban books, sit on school boards, then fuck with a dildo in their ass and an apple of Eden in their mouth. Total hypocrites. Then you got Jessica Watkins who is a trans who belongs to the Oath Keepers and she was sentenced to at least 8 years for her role in the capital attack in 2021. Oath Keepers leaders are now in prison for sedition conspiracy charges. Straight up treason. Jessica admitted that her peers pressured her as a trans growing up to hate herself and others that are like her. She was brainwashed obviously. The Moms for Liberty chapter in Philadelphia was actually run by a male pastor, Phillip Fisher, who plead guilty for raping a boy. What? Moms for Liberty run by a male rapist? They sit on school boards and ban books? So when these republicans cry about gays and trans all day long, make hundreds of bills to take their rights away, they are telling you that they are closeted gays. And they hate the freedom of other gays because they are literally stuck in the closet and they are jealous of your freedom. They want to take your freedom away to make themselves feel better and force you to live as they do hiding everyday.

  35. One song that I remember singing to at the age of 4 was Ace of Base's The Sign. I used to think some of the lyrics were "Now I'm a puppy dog" when she says "Now I'm happier living without you." :V I've always had auditory processing issues, it's much better now than it was when I was a kid but I still have it.

  37. Honestly sometimes I get the same excitement as I did when I was a kid, but it's rare that I do. If it's a game I really love or have been looking forward to for a while, then I get that same thrill. I think when I was younger it was more thrilling to get a new game since I was a kid and obviously didn't have any money to buy new games so it was cool to get a brand new game that your parents or relatives think you'd enjoy, and then you get to read the back of the case and read the manual to see what the game is all about. I do miss those days.

  38. There's a lot of talk about this and that with people building their own PC's. Most of what they're talking about is something I personally have no clue what it is. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. So I'm going to pin this thread and see if it gains much traction. If it does, we'll keep it pinned. If not, we'll let it fall into the depths of the PC forum. The first question is what the hell are peripherals?

  41. If there's no storyline, there's no game. It has no point unless it's some kind of puzzle game like Tetris or Myst. If you're playing a game with any kind of characters that you control, there MUST be a story. Can you imagine if Skyrim, RDR2, or even Zelda had no story in it? You were just screwing around doing nothing because there was no aim of any kind? That's a pure waste of time in every way. from every angle if you ask me. Now if you have played a game to the final end, and it doesn't actually give you any kind of quests anymore (RDR2 epilogue for example) then you can play that if it interests you. I have a file that's in the epilogue. I'm just filling my compendium, and doing completely random things. I'm thinking I might record an epilogue video for the YouTube channel @Rain Dew and I have. I just haven't decided yet. There's a lot of things that you can't do until you're in the epilogue, such as finish Herbalist 9. So it's an idea. I might start doing some educational videos about things like astronomy on one of my other channels. As usual I'm rambling and getting off topic. Again. I really need to learn how to shut the hell up. Yes a story is crucial to games except puzzle games like Tetris, Myst, or any other in that genre.

  43. Have we all not experienced this as kids? There was a time I missed school just to stay at home and play. Parents were out of town for a week, I woke up one morning and loaded the game instead of preparing for school. School called my parents that I was absent and I can never forget the discipline I received. That experience still being smiles to my face whenever I remember it.

  45. We do not have a GameStop in the UK but we have a similar store called Game, they are the same they tend to sell more collectibles than they do physical games now and it does make me wonder if soon, they may just stop selling physical games altogether. Even going in the store you can a lot of the time buy games digitally too so having them physical is usually pointless. Most of the time, the games that are physical that sell are used games that have been sold to the store for credit. I do believe one day we will see physical games no longer available in stores such as GameStop or Game in the UK and digital fully taking over. These stores will simply sit as a place to buy gaming collectibles.

  47. It reached number-one over the weekend. People sucked you know what in hell for it, no doubt. Which is why so many movies are overrated, and I knew it would claim the top spot, because these people like the popularity of the originals too much not to, and I think box office placings are mostly predetermined so they are bound to be successful if they aren't competing or duking it out with anything else that's popular (in the same week). But this recycling of old franchises ain't helping to bring in new ideas. 🤔

  48. Sony isn't quite as extreme as Nintendo - at least most times they aren't. As long as you're not selling it, they probably won't care unlike Nintendo who would be suing the hell out of you for doing the same.
