  1. I don't get why @Empire and @skyfire are being so negative about this. What Valve and the other companies listed were doing was blocking game codes purchased in one part of the EU from being used in another parts of the EU. Remember, the all of Europe is part of the PAL region, so there should be region blocking for software nor hardware. These companies did this to ensure that people were paying the highest price for those games across the whole continent no what matter what that country's indigenous market, economic status and local law dictates as fair, which is incredibly shady and purpose

  2. I love these videos of people making what looks like a PS1 version of a newer video game. This time around it's The Witcher 3, and man does this bring back PS1 memories for me lol. Imagine if these guys actually tried to make a version for the PS1. How many discs do you think it'd be? lol

  3. I suppose TLOU2 could be considered to be in that category by playing as Abby and Ellie. It's not as simple a case as one's the antagonist and one's the protagonist, but for fear of spoiling the game I'm not gonna explain further, but the way they did it definitely creates a lot of conflict within the player.

  5. Anyone remember this game? It is kind of a hidden gem. I remember when it came out on the 360 (ps3 and PC I think) and it was essentially you taking out nazis, but you could climb buildings, use stealth and or go in guns ablazing. When you play, you'll notice the world is dark and grey, but as you overtake nazi outposts and such, you start to see color in the world. Anyway, I remember it was similar to Assassin's Creed, at least with how you can climb. In fact, I liked the climbing in this game more than AC to be honest. Sadly, this was one game I rented and never played after. I was thi

  6. Eh, I have to disagree, as this game never really took off. If anything, it was pretty much dead on arrival. The userbase pretty much dropped the game soon after release. There are some devoted fans, but most people dropped out of the game soon after they finished it. Cyberpunk 2077 is far from a flop though. It didn't live up to the hype though, but I wouldn't say it was a flop, considering they still made a shit ton on the game, even with all the problems.

  7. I rarely pay full price for games, even the ones I buy new I try to find some sort of deal, so at worst I pay maybe $50 for them, but never more. A game really needs to be something to make me pay full price. I can probably count on one hand the times I Actually paid the full $60 for a game in my entire life. So I could list almost all games I Ever purchased. It would be easier to list the games that were not worth buying even at a reduced price.

  9. Yoga, exercise, walk and also taking break after every 40 minutes is the way to go. There is no other way out of it. If you cross 30s, then yes take more breaks and work in small batches. Gaming more than 2 hour straight after 30s would kill you slowly like smoking and alcohol consumption. You may notice this early or maybe in 45 or so but burnout will happen.

EDIT: After doing some digging I found that GamesStake, at least the GamesStake described here, doesn't seem to exist, so I'm also going to flag this account. Remember everyone, don't trust anything on the internet, look into it and definitely don't click on links in these kind of posts.

  12. Boss means higher in the hierarchy than regular cannon fodder enemies. It does not refer to their character being any kind of boss in the normal sense. But sometimes "boss" enemies can be actual bosses, other times they are just harder to defeat than regular enemies. Hence we also refer to some enemies as mini-bosses. The ones that are tougher than normal, but not the uber enemy of the game. So for example in Doom, the hell knight is a mini-boss. The cyberdemon is a boss.

    I would totally play games on an airplane. I think more airports will start to implement those options. Imagine playing VR in an airplane, would really heighten the experience I think.

  16. Oh, they are a thing, they are just called "time savers" now, and you pay for them with real money. So why put cheat codes in your game when you can make players pay for cheats like xp boosters and progression boosters, and gear? Basically IDKFA is now a microtransaction. And it's disgusting.

    Hi guys! I'm new to this forum. I was reading you for like 1.5 year as non-member and finally decided to sign up. I like playing games and playing it from deep childhood, so would be happy to share my experience and to know some new from forum :)

  23. i believe that these exist on mobile games only (based on my experience), they aren't that fun of thing at all, especially when your volume is high, then some ad pops up, it's really annoying and some games ask you to pay to get them removed, if it's a matter of few bucks, and you really love the game, then it shouldn't be a big deal, but some of them don't have that option and those ads keep happening again and again, one more reason to not play mobile games :(

  24. You read that right. The Ukrainian developer Frogwares took to social media when their H. P. Lovecraft inspired adventure/horror game reappeared for sale on Steam. They urged fans not to buy their own game from Steam as this game was put back on sale on Valve's PC storefront buy their French publisher Nacon without the developer's approval or cooperation. The game was originally removed from Steam back in August 2020 by Frogwares due to a dispute over unpaid royalties and rights of control over the game. Frogwares originally filed a lawsuit a year earlier over said despute. Accordi

  29. The definition of "genius" is a person with superior intelligence or ability. An IQ score of 140 or higher is defined as genius. Very few people will score that as the normal range of human intelligence is 90-109. A person can be absolutely stupid in almost every area of life, but a genius in one. For example, my sperm donor was an idiot and a fall down drunk. But if you were to give him some tools and wood, he was a genius. He could do things that most could only dream about. And he loved doing it. If he had chosen that as a career, I would have grown up privileged. There would have been

  30. I hope this is like the Hot Wheels game I remember back on the N64 I think it was. The trailer doesn't show a whole lot, but from the looks of it, it will take place on hot wheels tracks in real life like environments. So that should be fun. I just hope we can do the occasional flip and spin. I just hope it turns out to be good, because I wouldn't mind a good Hot Wheels game again.

  31. I do find it surprising, but there's a number of reasons I've seen why don't see this happen often. The first being that games enthusiasts think multiple endings are good, when really it depends entirely on the talent of the writers and their confidence in the story they want to tell, and the audience they want to tell it to. With multiple origins if one is bad it could well turn off the player for the rest of the game, but comes at a lower risk because there's other beginnings to choose from if one doesn't work out and won't sour the past, say, 40 hours of gameplay. The second hypothesis

  33. When I read the title I had to double check because Dying Light's that good zombie property, not the other one that's going through the game dev equivalent of musical chairs. I'm disappointed to hear that Techland's yet another studio that wrongly thinks workplace abuse makes for a better game, but at this point should I be at all surprised? Thanks for sharing this, even if it has made me feel gross.

  34. Characters in comedies need to be as dumb as it gets to appeal to the lowest common denominator. At least that is the logic they use when they make these shows. It's not just about husbands, it's every type of person. Like geeks being depicted as socially awkward to the point of dysfunctionality. And also every man being depicted as if their sole life purpose is to get the girl. Even shows that start out well sooner or later reach the point of the lowest common denominator, when it stops being grounded in reality. That's usually when I stop watching them. For example the Office

  35. Calm down. Just because a game includes skins and/or aesthetic options and touches from a movie, especially when that movie is based on the game to begin with, it doesn't make it a movie based based game, and even if it did, it doesn't spell doom for game. Having said that, @Kane99, a video game based on a movie based on a game is a concept that's been done before with predictively has results. Did you know their is a Street Fighter: The Movie, the game? It was basically a clone of Street Fighter 2, except the character models were replaced with digitised models of the actors from

  36. I don't make a habit of revisiting childhood games as an adult. Times change and most of what was interesting to 12 year old me, no longer is. When I did revisit some games, the most common experience was that what seemed extremely hard and complex back then usually seems like child's play as an adult. It doesn't mean that I now hate those games, though. I think what is more interesting is what games you can play with the same enthusiasm as an adult as you did as a kid.

  37. For their own sake, scalpers need to stop talking to the press and boasting on social media. Most conmen and crooks at least have enough common sense to take the ill gotten cash and keep quiet. We all know, and they all know, exactly what they're doing and why it's wrong, so that they would try to justify themselves is simply amazing. It actually goes beyond belief. For somebody to be that arrogant and successful, yet so delusional and stupid, I'm almost impressed.

    Bad Remade/Remastered games

    it's based on the engine of Mafia 3, got no issues with that at all, the issue is that they modified lot of storyline events, characters faces, characters voices, lot of missions, interiors and much more, which makes it not even close to the original game at all

  42. You and I have similar dispositions and feelings with respect to a lot of games. Totally agree FNV had much more to offer than Fallout 3 in this regard. And I love that Dragon Age never tells you whether to love or loathe any particular faction, what to believe or not believe about the world, etc. You can play through it as a devout Chantry follower or an anarchistic rebel mage with equal validity.

  43. These days every major game has some sort of data collection built into them that analyses and sends information on your playing habits and in game choices back to the developer. How do you feel about this? I have to say I don't mind it if it is used to bettering games. I look at it as if a poll or questionnaire that you constantly fill. But there are also very bad examples. Like recently when a developer used this data to publicly shame gamers for their in-game choices. This is unacceptable. This is like the chef coming out of the kitchen in a restaurant and slapping the clien

  45. Not necessarily. If they can offer the same games as other platforms, but at a cheaper price, they have a chance. But it has hurt them a lot for closing their first party studio down. What could help them, is getting studios to produce games that work great on the platform. I say let them go at it, make games and see what comes of it. Maybe Google can find new studios to invest in doing it this way.

  46. Even so, end of the day PC has come a very long way and most PC can handle it even if it's too much on the system. If you where to game heavy on a 20 year old PC then you are crazy. They have safety corridors built-in 🙂 If the CPU overheats too much your CPU fun will spine faster and soon enough your PC willfully go off. Won't get fired bang or catch on fire, just goes off and your screen goes black. Just turn it on again and loads up. Did that once, installed my CPU and then turn it on without the cooler, lasted 30secs before it went off again. Same with the CPU cooler powered

  47. I've read through this topic before, but never really sank in to me. Now I realize after you referred to the God of War game as people see it being only mythical as offensive to you. I myself have to stand corrected and apologize for being insensitive. You definitely have rarity in your veins. I think the reason people think Greek Gods are considered mythology is because, as far as I know, there isn't temples to worship, people trying to convert, modern books, etc. If Christianity or any other religion today ceased existence of a place to worship, books, and converters, then Jesus and Go

  48. Battlefield franchise I don't understand how can this series exist in the same universe as COD. I'm not a big fan of COD either. But when it comes to comparing the two battlefield is complete and utter guano that makes COD look like a masterpiece. Burnout series And by extension any game developed by criterion, as it is the antithesis of physics. Their motto should be: "We look at how cars behave in the real world and make sure our games don't resemble it in the slightest"

  49. I don't know if it's the best era as that's, of course, subjective but it's definitely not as bad as many want us to believe and let's not forget that gaming is no different than movies in a way that if what is available today is not your cup of tea you can easily check titles from a few years back which is ironically enough what I did this year.

He drank on football sundays and at the time I had sega genesis with John Madden Football. Next thing I know he is laying on the ground with pillows playing my Sega when nobody is around.
