  1. I am amazed consistently at how helpful our members are. I can think of multiple times I have asked questions about games and folks here have gone above and beyond with sharing their experiences or even researching answers to troubleshoot. So, I just wanted to say thanks to y’all for being so awesome 🙂

  2. Stick with Sony. Knockoffs will fuck up worse than most can imagine, and you'll just be buying them over and over. I say just pick a color you like from what they have and get a new one. I got the glacier white controller. There was nothing wrong with the black one that came with the system, I just wanted the color. I went through GameStop and they got it to me in about 3 days. So I recommend doing that.

  3. The problem is, wether you were aware of it or not, you opened a gate here. Someone needs help with a video game, you give advice and it all ends with that someone getting their head stuck down a toilet. I don't care if the story is real or not, there's a middle part to part to that story that needs told!

    The Gaming Mod Thread

    I've seen game modding discussed on these forums mostly in an "in a reference" and specific kind of way. But, for us as a community, to discuss game modding in the aim to create a pool of advice in the effort to make game modding easier and more accessible, I feel is a noble task. I know game modding can be somewhat daunting to people who haven't tried it, and lets be honest, it can be a pain in the ass for those that have. The purpose of this thread to discuss game modding in a more general way, rather than have it come up on occasion in a thread for a specific game. So regardless of gam

  8. What was the moment when you identified 100% with your character in the game and why? For me it was Abby in the last of us 2 on the skybridge level. I have a profound fear of falling off things, standing on the second step of a ladder is already terrifying to me unless I can hold on to something solid. So on that level I knew exactly what she would feel, so I had a very personal connection. It felt more real because I know how it feels IRL if you get what I mean.

  9. RE7 did a great job of the monsters, especially the ones that looked human. There is something really terrifying about that. I think they should keep them looking human for the most part, but maybe possessed or aliens that look human. If they get carried away with monsters that don't look human at all, then that loses fear factor for me.

    Personal Rules

    By figuring out what has stopped me from not living by my stated rules. I've been researching a lot about childhood trauma, transactional analysis, and the mind, and have been doing an in-depth audit of my traits and past. The objective is to figure out what "bad code" is running in my brain--skewed perspectives, beliefs, and assumptions I'm not entirely aware of that are driving me. Once they are identified and dismantled, there won't be anything left to stop me from being my best self. Kind of funny, but Spec Ops: The Line was part of what inspired me to dive into this.

    Personal Rules

    One rule is to be myself & not let peer pressure get in there. I also don't eat for 13 hours during the night (intermittent fasting). I exercise daily, even if it's walking & stretches. Take time for my furbabies & husband. I don't take crap from others.

  12. To me, grinding can only be fun if the gameplay itself is rewarding. Take dark souls for example, farming souls and titanite chunks from those giants in Anor Londo presents an interesting challenge each time you do it, which keeps it interesting. Mindlessly clicking things over and over with 0 risk of dying is the absolute worst thing a game can do.

  14. I'm convinced it could have been any developer, or even any publisher for that matter, and this game would have been pretty much the same regardless. This was little more than bread and butter for Square Enix with Crystal Dynamics as a developer for higher. A soulless, cooperate attempt to print money at the behest of Marvel crafted with all the passion and heart of a Starbucks coffee. No wonder this dude was fed up. Square Exix is a publisher that can do great things and Crystal Dynamics are a talented developer, but everyone knew what this was even before the game came out and kn

  15. Right on. There are a lot of situations where characters are heroic, but many times they are doing a quest where they were hired on. I think that heroism has no expectations for rewards. Not for fame, money, gear, or any kind of pride. And intentionally not even getting noticed for the deeds done is even more heroic. And we can assume those deeds were morally right ones. I think a hero has a clear mind and isn't driven by hate and vengeance. Because that would be only a self fulfilled act, not heroism. Heroism is completely selfless. And that is an easy line to cross. I think we all at ti

  16. It is. The bastard died in 2000. It still surprises me how much tension left my body, and how much weight was lifted off my shoulders realizing that I no longer had to worry about how bad the next beating I was going to get would be. I could put that rifle back on the gun rack, and have my bed to myself. Him dying was one of that absolute best things that ever happened in my life. And I can count the good things on one hand and still have fingers left over.

  19. I would say Charles, Sadie, and Arthur in RDR2. Charles because he is able to keep his head, puts out a commanding aura when he needs, and does what needs to be done when it needs to be done. He doesn't get all hopped up over everything. Arthur because he is a no bullshit kind of outlaw. When something isn't right, he makes it right by whatever means necessary. He'll kill you and think nothing of it if he deems it necessary. He kills in anger. He kills enemy gang members just for fun. And he can read the writing on the wall, when others can't even see it. Sadie because she can get pl

  20. When using a video game to push a real world political agenda like Fortnite did, it has no place because 1) most of the people who play these games typically use them to get away from stuff like this 2) Videogames are supposed to be fun and there's nothing fun about a political agenda-driven that's imposing its beliefs on its players. 3) It isn't part of the story or theme of the game and when you just suddenly start pushing it, it becomes bothersome. This is the mistake that Battlefield 5 made and it flopped horrendously. Videogames were based on creativity at least back in the days but most

  22. Americans have a natural entitlement. It partially comes from that "greatest country on earth" bullshit. The rest is either racial (white privilege) or personal entitlement (narcissism). Many of the wealthiest people on earth are American, and for some reason a majority of the population thinks that that gives them the right to be assholes and makes them better than everyone else. When they themselves are not in any way wealthy and like the majority are living paycheck to paycheck. The US needs to take cue from a lot of the rest of the world. Humility being number one.

  25. If your playing on PS3 (correct me if I'm wrong) then this port of Skyrim and DLC is known to have a lot of problems. Not to mention just recently Sony shut down PSN store on PS3 and PSP which means that some games aren't getting patches. I don't know if Skyrim is one of them but it's something you need to keep in mind now.

  26. I was actually wondering why is it still called GTA (Grand Theft Auto) even if it's not really based on stealing cars, the game series got this name because that's what it was supposed to be based on, but due to some bug, the game took another path to what we see it on these days, but the name was never changed (except that it was called Race n' Chace before GTA). Do you think that any of the current existing games/series have a name that don't really fit with it?

  27. On my first play through of games I always tend to miss a lot of content, because I go for full immersion. I do what makes sense in terms of the story. But if the game is good enough I'll start it again and do a more comprehensive run. When a game tries to force you to do something I always go out of my way to not do it. That's where bad game design will reveal itself. Because if the game is not prepared for the player going their own way I count that as bad design.

  30. I actually heard about this a couple of days ago. I would have stated a thread myself, but wanted to wait for more validity to the rumour. Now, you won't find very many people who love this franchise more than me, but even I can't get behind this at all. This is a complete waste of time, effort and cash, however little of those things it would actually take to pull this off. I don't think a sequel to Days Gone would have made me any happier as I didn't actually enjoy that game very much, but it would be easier to justify. I see this as an attempt to strike the hot pan close to the

  31. You still steal more cars in gta than in any other game. So I think the name fits very well. When I think about weird names, I think about series like Star Wars Dark Forces, Star Wars Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, which would make the third game called Star Wars Dark Forces III: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast LOL

  32. In this day and age I think they should make sure that after official support ends the console can still be used without it. So if they intend to shut down servers, release a patch that makes the consoles fully functional without it.

  33. I never even heard of the term catharsis before. This is a really good topic. I'm not sure what role games play for me. I have so many deep seeded problems that I can't really pin point one where I get an 'emotional release' through gaming. I started gaming in my last few months of drinking alcohol. But while drinking I couldn't play because my concentration and memory were shot to hell. So I wouldn't remember what happened n the game the next day. In a way, gaming has kept my mind focused on better things. On more beautiful things. On more interesting things. I always told myself that boredom

  34. Just because PC gaming has long since abandoned disk based games doesn't mean that disk based games have lost any value. On the contrary, the advantages of disk based games are more precious and valued now more than ever and not just taken for granted because greedy game publishers are so desperate to be rid of them. They don't want people to be able to buy used games, swap games, loan games to friends, trade them and know they'll still work even if the store/service that provided them goes down. Like I said, just because PC gamers have had to live without these rights for so many years doesn'

  38. I have always had the ability to make enemies instead of friends. I was the kid that everyone in school hated. I won't get into how my home life was, because you most likely wouldn't believe me. But needless to say, it was enough that I tried to kill myself more times than I care to try to count. You're right that I am passionate about many things. Others I am blase about. There's something I have said for many years, that sums things up rather well.

  39. As odd as it sounds, those are often that absolute most challenging puzzles you can face. We always search under floorboards, or dig up random spots in the ground, toss the bed, and the damn thing turns out to be right there on the table. It's due to the fact that our brains are trained to think that puzzle pieces are hidden somewhere that would be hard to find, not where our eyes would hit on it immediately. Honestly, I wish I had thought of that stipulation. That's a damn good one. Kudos @killamch89

  40. Some things aren’t meant to be political but made political by people who threaten human rights. That guise is used to abuse creative freedom or freedom of speech. Sad thing is, if you try to stop the bad from filtering in games, or any media/entertainment, then you risk encroaching those rights. But if it’s something that has nothing to do with threatening the right to life and prosperity, then be as creative as you want. That is very true I agree, but I'm gonna nitpick a little bit because BLM is not political. It is a human rights issue made political by people who oppo

  42. I'd do anything to save a beloved character as long as it does not involve the deaths of hapless innocents. But games rarely give you this choice. The only case I can think of is in Splinter Cell Double Agent, where saving a character is only possible by letting a terrorist attack go through unimpeded.

  46. Why would they be making a new TLOU remake then? These people are so full of it! I totally agree that I'd be more excited by a new Jak & Daxter and it'd definitely excite a lot more PS owners. That's exactly what I'm saying! I'm curious as to why the interviewer never hit back with that question. I get the feeling that a lot of times, gaming media are so patronizing of gaming companies instead of really asking some critical questions of their practices.

  47. I didn't accept the money for Ciri. I remember the look on her face, and I couldn't do it. It wouldn't have mattered I don't think. If you reject the money there is supposed to be a new horse you get, but I never seen it. Just for conscious and because she is a freaking beauty you don't want to piss off, reject the money. But it's money!!! You could take it to the brothel 100 times. If you explore a lot you can easily make up the money if you reject it. Funny how we still can stick to a moral compass even in a video game. Sleep with Morinth in Mass Effect 2? I haven't reached that point

  48. Knowledge is the single most important thing a person can possess. And obtaining an education is the path to that knowledge. As long as your education comes to you unbiased, and you receive it unbiased. There is nothing more valuable than knowledge. It is what guides the few forward while the many are going back.

  49. It depends on how far I actually went into it. If I went far into the game, then it's on me. It had my attention and interest in the beginning. If it is in a genre that I'm a huge fan of, like fantasy, and the game just sucked in my opinion then it's still on me. Witcher 3 is like that. I didn't like it, but that doesn't mean the developers are to blame for my personal taste.
