  1. I know there is topics about this show already but this is in the proper section and as of 8 hours ago, this isn't speculation and is about the show how it's actually presented: The first episode was great! It detracted from the game in some places but never in a way was affected the story negatively. I expanded the story into areas that the game never did while still remaining faithful to the lore and characters. I'm my opinion as a massive fan of the game it's got the balance of being faithful to the source material while also giving me some suspires and unexpected moments. I do have a slight fear that the violence has been soften up a bit to much, but maybe that's just me being hardened up to what's in the game which was always going to be in more volume. I'd love to hear what you think and I am considering this a spoiler thread. I've kept it spoiler free in this OP but feel free to discus spoilers from this point forward. If you haven't seen the show or played the game consider this your spoiler warning from this point forward.

  2. Fox News has always said dumb shit about video games and how they cause violence or that it's a waste of time. I never take what Fox News says seriously, because they can't be bothered to do any research into the BS they spew about video games. I've seen many reports on Fox news about how video games are bad for our youth or bad in general. If they can't take the time to do any research, then I say ignore them. What I hate the most, is how they try to pair video games with these school shootings and other shootings in general. It's just a joke at this point with how the media likes to point fingers at video games as being these things that teach kids to be violent.

  4. I’m no scientist so I don’t have the answer. I do know the ability of empathy. When you lack empathy you become a follower of every single violation of humanity that is possible. So how does this relate to technology? Well, think about the tech you use everyday. The loud NOISE is what I’m getting at. Your pets have a higher sense of hearing. If you are in a smaller housing area like an efficiency or a bedroom then please get head phones for entertainment needs. Put your pet in another room if you want to get loud. And don’t ignore your pets. Thank you. I take a bow.

  5. Gamers take things way too seriously sometimes when it comes to their opinions on video games/consoles etc on social media as well. It's either Sony fanboys vs Xbox fanboys, or Nintendo fanboys too, but they're not as crazy I'd say. Social media has made it easier to complain about ones favorite video games, and it's gotten to a point that people will get heated about their thoughts. Twitter alone is a cesspool of arguments on just about everything. Facebook is about the same, arguing back and forth. I never bother commenting on social media because it's pointless, you can't win an argument.

  6. Yeah mobile games do it all the time. I'll say that there are some that balance things fine, but then there are some mobile games that throw so many ads at you, and take forever to play, that it kinda pushes you to pay for things to get ahead. It's why I don't play many mobile games, because if you want to get anything real done, you do need to pay to get anywhere. Unless you want to grind your ass off to get somewhere, and even then that just becomes a chore.

  7. Also as to the sound, you could probably use a good surround sound system, but i would advise a good pair of surround sound headphones for VR, as then you are completely immersed! Logitech make a vey good pair of in ear headphones specifically made for VR which are supposed to be awesome. I personally use my 7.1 surround sound over ear headphones (corsair virtuoso SE) so yes mate sound is much better too through PC! 🙂

  8. As much as I hate to admit it, I see things going strictly digital in the not too distant future. Possibly within the PS6 era, whenever that comes. Nintendo would be the only one I could see being a holdout. It would land a hell of a blow on profits for companies. Games are all on Blu-ray discs now, which Sony owns the patent to. So if say Xbox went to strictly digital, and stopped using Blu-ray discs, Sony would lose a shitload of money. I hope this doesn't happen any time soon, but I'm absolutely 100% positive it will eventually.

  9. I always thought Metal Gear Solid would make a really good movie if done right. The dialogue would be a little hard to pull off, and the boss battle style scenes would need to be re-worked. The game has enough twists in it to make it really interesting though. Snake is a cool hero type character, Otacon good comedic relief, and the FoxHound members make great morally grey villains.

  10. It'll get better when companies stop trying to add pay to win to a lot of these apps and games. If you want to level up faster, beat the game faster etc, it'll probably be better to just pay to own the game. Or don't support games with pay to win elements. If they did what fortnite does with their battle pass, maybe I'd consider more mobile games.

  11. Seems like it is. And I think for a free to play game, a battle pass system makes sense. But when it's a $60/$70 game, I don't think we should be paying for a battle pass on top of it. If we do, we should ateast get the first battle pass when purchasing the game at no additional cost and maybe charge us when the next season comes. That imo would be fair to me.

  12. With the success of the Switch and the Steam Deck it is pretty much inevitable now that we will probably see more companies coming out with their own versions of these consoles that can also be handhelds. I have said it for the longest time and even now I would still love to see it and that is for Xbox to jump on the handheld. Something like a console that is also a handheld I feel would be amazing and very popular from Xbox.

  13. Repetition. Do it over and over until you find your style, and know how to use it. For example, with FF8 most people are either magic users or rely heavily on their GF's. Me, the way that works for me is physical attacks. I can kick some major ass doing that. I also know how to junction magic and abilities to the point that I'm almost invincible. So experiment, and repeat until you have your style down. It's what works for me.

  14. Sometimes I attempt to make a post, write some things down and then say forget about it and move on. I feel intimidated at times. How would someone react to my post? Did I offend anyone in some way? We all should feel comfortable here enough to express ourselves. This forum allows that. It’s a gaming forum, but also more than that. There are highly intelligent moderators and members. This shit should be legend!!! I understand this forum has members of the international community. There are cultures from other places who don’t have as many freedoms to express themselves. Even if you have freedoms, I’m not here to judge, that’s for sure. I miss @killamch89 creating topics about random shit…lol. I miss @StaceyPowers spending some time creating topics. Where are you? You don’t want me creating topics, believe me. I want the holy fucking grail where a machine that looks like Adriana Lima is waving to me saying come here stallion. Maybe it’s just me and my alcohol problem where I’m paranoid every little thing I say is just another fuckin nail to shred my dignity more and more.

  16. Yeah, they lack ideas for him, but also he just isn't a household name like Mario, so any game will sell worse simply for starring and being named after him. Occasionally something does alright without Mario’s name, like Luigi's Mansion, but often it goes the way of Super Princess Peach. They should incorporate him into a new Wario Land style game.

  17. 🤣Now that was some funny stuff. Even with the manly raw meat with the bones and hot sauce to make a Fox news approved smoothie. Nothing woke about it. Now if only they can apply that to a gas powered gaming controller. Wait a minute...I think I found just the thing!!!

  18. A lot of people play just a handful of games over and over. I used to do it a lot with retro gaming. But lately haven't as much. I rarely play most of the games in my steam library. I have many that I haven't even played yet.

  20. Yeah it's a problem when it comes to buying codes from third parties. You never know exactly what you're getting and it could take months or even years before a studio takes notice and removes the game or whatever. I heard someone got in trouble for selling their codes from a humble bundle. Even giving them away to people can cause issues I hear.

  21. I think it's more to do with studios not giving QA testers enough time with the games in the first place. So you got QA testers probably giving details about a bunch of bugs that will probably never be patched or will be patched after release. I think a lot of these games have known bugs at release, and QA testers let them know, but I can see studios releasing these games because they have the mentality that "oh, we'll just fix these bugs after release".

  22. I wasn't talking just about the battle pass. I was talking about ads in $60-$70 games such as UFC. It's only after the backlash that they completely removed it.

  23. That's nothing but the facts. Let's be honest with ourselves, every company's primary goal is to make money - not to genuinely care about its customers. They only act like they care because our money is what sustains them. Let the minute that our funds no longer is their primary source of earning and you'll see how they really feel about their customers.

  25. Hi Reality vs Adventure, i hope your well! 🙂 Sorry for the late reply, but ive been really busy! 🙂 Yes mate, PCVR and playing on a quest 2 standalone is like the difference between playing games on a phone and playing games on a gaming PC or console, as Quest 2 abasically has the processing power of a smart phone (maybe slightly higher) so yes when you connect your quest 2 to a gaming PC via a fast usb c cable (has to be a fact cable to be able to exchange data at needed speed, i use a fibre optic usb c cable) so when you do that, the quest 2 basically becomes just a display and all the processing gets done by the PC, you can also connect wirelessly to a PC now via oculus air link, but the data rates aren't as good as a fast cable, so i would always suggest a cable if wanting the best results, You also have to do a couple of tweaks in the oculus software to get the best possible results, but nothing to technical. Once it is al set up correctly its mind blowing it really is, ive even played GTA 5 in VR on it which was a different experience than playing on a tv or monitor let me tell you lol It does take a good PC to run VR games on max setting though, as you ae in effect rendering everything twice, once for each eye, so when playing top end games in VR, it can get really hard for anything but a top end PC to handle. It is well worth it though, as its an entirely new experience when your actually in the game, like i say check out Lone Echo and Half Life Alyx on youtube, they are top end PCVR games, also Medal of Honor Above and Beyond is another good PCVR game! 🙂 its the future of gaming if you ask me! 🙂 Hi Shortie, i hope your well! 🙂 Yes mate i remember the saw game, it was quite scary as it goes, but so were the films lol and yes mate that's what i said in my original comment, resident evil (RE) used to scare the crap out of me when i was younger, but now, maybe because im older or have been numbed after years of gaming, i dont get as scared by the newer ones, although i do still love them! 🙂

    Do you play Paladins?

    I have not played the game before. No. Sounds fun but I do not think that I Would get into the game by any means. Would not be easy to get hold of it anyway, then again I might be wrong 😛 I stick to what I fo best right hahahaha

  27. Need for Speed: Most Wanted is one I had forgotten about but man that game is so much fun. I haven't played it in a long while but the last time I played it I have a lot of fun with it, it's definitely a game you can go back to whenever and be able to play. It got me thinking about another game I like to play solo as well, Burnout Paradise is another one, man that game is a lot of fun. I downloaded it again on the Xbox One a little bit ago and played it again, still so much fun!

  28. To be honest, I don't even really use TikTok all that much so I haven't tried it all. It's a very strange platform in terms of monetization and how they handle creators especially new ones.

  29. Probably any Gameboy based Pokemon game, since the luck in getting specific Pokemon, or the way you can level them up just enough to get into a new area. For consoles, I'd probably say any need for speed or burnout game.

  30. I don't believe so, it has a big esport following, and it seems to be good for EA, who normally does trash at multiplayer/big games outside of sports games. I'll be curious how they can keep the hype going, without having people drop off like Fortnite when they kept changing things as they did so frequently and modifying the way items/aspects worked in the game.

    Do you still play GTA V?

    I play it every so often, kinda just do my own thing or just do races. A lot of the game is really just kinda boring now or people just going at it with the best weapons/equipment in game which kinda ruins the fun of just exploring or hanging out with friends only.

  32. I think the fun comes in from working with these studios and the developers and coders. I think the testing side is a afterthought when most of the testers are probably more interested in seeing how far the game has come and working with other like minded people. The actual testing side sounds like a chore for the most part. But getting to work close to devs and other team members has to be a great benefit.

  33. I get why apps have ads, especially if they're free to play. Of course it is annoying to have to watch a 15-30 sec ad just to play. But usually some apps will let you buy the full game or require pay to remove ads. Most games I played have had ads, but I don't usually play the games too long anyway. There are some games and apps that toss up way too many ads. It's like they are trying to get you to just buy the game.

    Among Us in VR

    I have not played it, but I think it would be fun. I don't much care for among us, but I'd try it out in VR to see how well it plays.

  35. Most first person shooters or first person games. Like Hitman Blood Money. They already have Hitman 3 in VR, but let's to back even further and make blood money into VR. I'd replay that in VR. Same with Sniper Elite series, but I think one of the newer games is in VR already. Wrestling games in VR would be interesting.

  36. I think so. With the way Fortnite and Warzone have become hugely popular, I can see more multiplayer games coming that feature free to play options. They will probably just copy the method Fortnite does with their battle pass every new season or chapter. I think that is the way to go. You don't need to pay in order to play either, and can still level up. But won't get the other unlocks you would with a battle pass. That's the only way I see things working. But there are often free games from companies and more. I can see free games being a thing for years to come.

  37. Internet speeds are not nearly standardized enough yet for cloud gaming to actually become mainstream, and even then there will always be egregious input delay that makes competitive games untenable. And I have not used cloud gaming as I tend to stick with the same games that I have istalled and to save money from not paying for it 😛

  38. For me, Halo's/COD'S gameplay was fun, but working towards sweet armor/gun sets by completing challenges was awesome. Now even if a game implements in-game sets through challenges they feel way less rewarding, because they'll either be shitty compared to the paid pieces, or (in my case at least) I'll just assume that the other player's armor is paid for.

  40. From what I understand they didn't want the cast to be pulling from to many sources outside the script that Neil Druckman and Craig Mazin prepared for the show, which I think makes sense. Bella needs to do her interpretation of the character, not Ashley's.

    To be honest, I've been spending more time with my friends and family over the Christmas period so I didn't game quite as much. That's great. What kind of gaming chair is it? Happy New Year to you too mate.

  43. I think heading towards a future of no physical media or discs would be a blow to be honest. So many people still prefer to pick up physical games even now and taking the ability away from them to do that would affect them badly. I feel what Xbox has done with their consoles, one with a disc tray and one without is a better option going forward as it gives the consumer the chance to choose which one they would prefer and still be able to go either physical or digital.

  45. It looks more awkward than anything. A simple controller like we have seems to be the best option. But then again there are people who have either lost fingers, or had an amputation or some other disability that completely blocks them from gaming. Obviously, I can't speak for every disabled person.

  46. I know that this is a movie based on a game and even made in partnership with the company that publishes that game, but it's still a movie, so this isn't gaming news. That is why I'm moving this to the movies and TV sub forum. And to be honest, I don't really understand why this needs to exist. This isn't the same thing as making a movie out of Need for Speed because Grand Turismo has always been a plotless driving sim'. This will be a film about fictional racing drivers in a fictional racing series that meant to emulate and mirror the real thing, and I just don't se that working. It's got a great cast, but racing movies just work better if they based on something real like Senna or lean all into a fantasy, not a bizarre mix of both like this seams to be.

  47. I think I'd rather build one, just because you can get parts a bit cheaper than buying a pre-built of the same caliber. But I understand wanting to get a pre-built. It's more practical, easier, and you don't have to build a PC. I would consider a pre-built if it was set up by a company that doesn't add any bloatware or unnecessary programs.

  48. That's a kind of weird thing to say because it already feels like The Last of Us 1 was structured like a TV show. Or rather a mini-series, with each season having its own contained little plot arc while still contributing to the overall story. I guess he just means doing this but... More?

  49. The first dead space was top notch, looking at the trailer, it reminded me about the previous edition of the game with few improvements. I am hoping for the "remake" to come sooner.
