  1. @Crazycrab's tone aside, their message is sadly correct. Leakers don't have the full context for the content they're leaking, and what may have been true at the time can easily change moments later due to the sheer complexity of development. This is assuming they're telling the truth, and recently we've seen a huge debacle over an 'industry insider' being a regular Johnny Youtuber. I'm not going to doubt this Dusk fellow any more than I would other leakers, but the trust I place in them - however correct their past claims have been - is little to begin with. I'm disappointed for you and all the Silent Hill fans eagerly awaiting a new game, but my sympathy can only extend so far when that eagerness is hedged on hearsay and dubious screenshots/video footage. The times have changed so dramatically, where even hands-on gameplay days before release can be totally unrepresentative of what the final product is, so it's hard for me to say "until [x], [y], and [z] happens you should be cautious."

  2. Here's another Minecraft build that user Potomy took on. They created the world of Bloodborne in Minecraft itself. Bloodborne isn't a small game either, so to make something like this, I gotta give props. Source of story - https://gamefreaks365.com/bloodborne-minecraft/

  4. I may have to do that for some games, especially something like Dark Souls, as I can never get good at it haha. I've played a fair deal of the beginning, but once I got to one of the first "real" bosses, I kinda gave up. But, if I knew how to build the best character for the job, I may give the game and series another go. πŸ˜„

  5. I think the only way is to reform Team Silent and have them make Silent Hill again. They made the best SH games out of all of them SH 1-4. So just having Konami and some random development team make a new Silent Hill wouldn't be to my liking, at least. I know fans would want a good development team working on a new Silent Hill. I would like to see Kojima and team do a new Silent Hill, but that will never happen under Konami. Leaks need to be taken with a grain of salt. We need to stop automatically believing they are 100% true. Half the time you're probably going to get lies or fake news. Sometimes they're true, like with the recent GTA 6 leak, but most leaks are often hoaxes or fake or nothing of importance.

  7. True - revving bike engines does unnecessarily does tend to get on my nerves because for the most part, most of them sound pretty similar. Now if they revving of a car engine like and EVO x with turbo - now that I can listen to all day.

    I need your help

    In the first game, when you get to the Yellow Devil boss fight, you can use Elecman's ability, and then mash select to pause and unpause the game which makes the move hit a million times, making a super tough fight real easy. In Megaman 2, almost every boss is weak against Metalman's ability, so get him first if you want to have an easier time. In Megaman X, do Chill Penguin's stage first to obtain the dash boots as early as you can, it'll make the entire game tons more fun. EDIT: Oh! The biggest tip I can give to anyone trying out Megaman games for the first time is, enjoy yourself. They can be pretty tough, but they're also really tightly designed for the mostpart, so if you pay attention to the layouts of the levels you can usually come out on top once you learn patterns and whatnot. And there's no need to play them in release order if you don't want. Play the ones you think look the coolest and see what sticks. Man, I wish I could play Megaman for the first time again.

  9. NO!!!! Really!? The Silent Hill rumours that I and everyone else semi-sensible been saying were bullshit this entire time were in fact.... bullshit? Well consider me spiffled!!! I've said it before and I'll say it again, this fanbase nobody but themselves to blame. I think it's about time they finally got their head out their asses and took some responsibility for their own gullible optimism. They believed Abandoned was secretly a Silent Hill project even after Konami and even Kojima confirmed they have nothing to do with it. I remember (and even getting some flack for) saying at the time there was nothing suggesting that this had anything to do with Silent Hill and fuck me, I was right. The fanbase even had the nerves blame the the dev's because when they saw the viral marketing they voluntarily cherry picked it apart letting them think Abandoned was something it wasn't. Fucking pathetic! Then some time later Boober Team confirm they are partnership with Konami and they do a hop, skip and a jump right back on that train screaming "Silent Hill! Silent Hill!". Then of they course they are forced to make a statement saying that there is no Silent Hill project in production back in June. Then months later these "leaks" show up and they let themselves get wound up, AGIAN, expecting some announcement at TGS which of course, never happened. What is wrong with these people!! The rumours of a Silent Hill game from Bloober were confirmed to be wrong months before any of the "leaks" and you still believed it. To tell the truth, I actually commend this guy for exposing just how narrow eyed and gullible this fanbase truly is. The fact he can post a rumour that had already been debunked months earlier and it can still such a huge amount of traction is mind blowing. I sure as hell wouldn't be sorry for it, I'd be like: WAKE UP!!!!! Until Konami confirms otherwise there are no Silent Hill projects in production. End of story! Next time there is a Silent Hill rumour, ignore it. So when it inevitably doesn't pan out you might come out of it not looking like a bunch of fools.

  12. Yeah, that's more like it. I think that what justify some games for me is its capacity to allow me enjoy myself! If a game is bad but was very much enjoyed, it's a win win for me. I really did had fun with playing Sonic Generations.

  20. I don't really see anything wrong with the current points system to be honest, it's not that it overly matters to me as i never came here to get free stuff as i came here because i wanted to talk about videogames and it's culture . I think i've got 2 switch games so far trough the bid for rewards program, while these are neat rewards and a nice gesture from dc, it should not be the main motivation to keep posting here and to me it never will. One thing you could do is make a overhaul of the Member of the month and reward second and third place also with some points, it would be more motivating especially for newer members that their posts are appreciated here and we want them to continue to post here. Maybe something worth considering @DC what do you think? If you are going to do a shop i'd probably say some vgr merch would be cool but i don't know i'd just rather buy it myself instead because you know some vgr merch would be cool tough. Yeah i wouldn't mind wearing a shirt that says Proud Moderator at vgr.com bitches or something along those lines lol. But i'll take anything i can get really even if it's cosmetics for the forum. I think the reputation is fine as it is and i'm probably the only one who sees it more as how reputable somebody their posts are as in quality posts, my goal is to reach 500 reputation by the time i hit 1000 posts, so far i'm on course. If i could reach it that means half my posts were liked and that is enough to put a smile on my face and to keep me motivated to continue putting time and effort into my posts, even if some take me over half an hour to write.

    Best movie of 2022

    I've only seen one movie and one TV show I liked so far in 2022: Movie: The Batman TV Show: Moon Knight Didn't bother with Top Gun: Maverick or any of the latest MCU renditions, because clearly, I'm not the target audience for the latter.

    Last Game Played

    Finally reached the pinnacle of the Mass Effect trilogy, Mass Effect 3. Got me thinking about how 'safe' art is nowadays. The appealing thing about art is that it's provocative and encourages conversations on hard topics. Everyone wants an easy answer nowadays to social issues that our 'art' and entertainment in movies and TV shows become bland and uninspiring, just pandering to the most popular and ideals on Twitter and TikTok instead of bothering to improve and expand our perspective on life and society with controversial questions. Mass Effect 2 had a few great examples of what I'm talking about, specifically Mordin's loyalty mission. It has aged like fine wine, and it goes to show why everyone considered Mordin's character arc the best-written storyline in the entire trilogy. His dilemma and denial over the genophage, along with his subsequently remorseful realization in Mass Effect 3, brought tears to my eyes. I remember choking up when I was questioning Mordin during his loyalty mission about the ethics of the genophage, and I wasn't just tearing up because of how heavy the topic was, but more so because I could feel Mordin's guilt and sorrow over the dead female Krogans that met their fate as an indirect result of his actions. It was so beautifully tragic, Mordin's dilemma and perspective. But more relevant to my point is that, Mass Effect gamers also had many heated debates regarding the ethics of the genophage. You would rarely get that kind of interesting exchange over a controversial subject in media today because the big companies want to keep the narrative safe. And it's not just the genophage either, but also the Quarians' enslavement of Geths, which are essentially a machine race in the simplest definition. However, the ethics of the Quarians' actions were anything but simple, so the heated exchange about whom were in the right - the Quarians or the Geths - was just as intriguing as well. I love how a video game of all things would get people discussing about such interesting moral dilemmas, even if they aren't important issues in the context of real life. That's what art should be, provocative. There were times while I was playing the Mass Effect games that it felt like I was watching an episode of Star Trek, specifically The Next Generation. The older Star Trek shows had always tackled intriguing moral and ethical issues with such subtlety and intelligence that the Mass Effect games' handling of their issues bore great resemblance. And it's not just the big issues like genocide and slavery either, but also the smaller inter-relationship conversations, how the crew members talk to each other like adults instead of using simple, dumbed down dialogue a teenager would use. The Critical Drinker pointed out a great scene that exemplified such a conversation when calling out how modern movies and TV shows use dumbed down dialogue only children and immature man-children would use: I just love this exchange so much, and I remember a similar level of depth among my conversations with the Normandy crew as well, albeit not as subtle as the conversation above. For example, it's easy to just dismiss Ashley as only a racist without understanding the nuance of her motivation. I might not have supported Ashley's views on aliens, but even I could see there's nuance between her humanist biasness and Terra Firma's "We hate all aliens" point of view. Complex issues like racism never have an easy answer, especially in our modern times when everything's grey. People tend to miss that.

    new games coming

    Not a whole lot jumps out at me these days to where I want to purchase it day one. There are a few games coming soon that I am interested in. One that comes to mind is the new AEW video game. Excited to see how this game plays compared to the old WWF No Mercy games. I'm also really psyched for the new Kojima game, whatever it may be. And I'm sure there are other games I'm forgetting about.

  30. Whenever it comes to my character customization in most RPG games that I played, I'm always very careful with my character building because if I mess it up, it's always going to affect my gameplay. I had a little struggle with my character building in Divinity: Original Sin II but I later got it right the way I wanted.

    It was just about the same thing with most people during the pandemic of coronavirus lockdown. There wasn't much choice but to eat, sit at home, shit (poo πŸ’©), bath, eat again and sleep on the repeat πŸ”‚ every damn day. It was a very critical time. Once you're able to get your eating habits under control, and workout adequately, you will lose much weight quickly.

  34. 2023 is still far away so from the games that are still coming out this year that i'm going to buy at launch or close to launch : Hokko life -> looks kinda like an animal crossing clone but since it's only 30 bucks at launch i'm willing to give it a shot, comes out on september 27th. Persona 5 Royal -> Because i want to support these atluse Xbox physical editions as much as possible. Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord -> Kinda suprised this comes out on the 25th of october, if the first game was anything to go by this will be another time sinker for me. I still value the first game as one of the best open world games ever, since you can do pretty much anything you want. Lemon cake -> Don't know much about it other then that you run an old bakery, since i'm a baker in real life it's a no brainer i'm getting this. Harvestella -> Kind of a mix between farming, life simulation and a jrpg by square enix looks really promising hopefully it's better then run factory 5 I'm sure i'm forgetting a couple some have already been released like digimon surivive but i'm holding off until i can get them on sale maybe not this year but next year then.

    Lost Something?

    Lol i gained quite some weight during the covid period since all you could do was eating way too much for your own good, drinking beer/wine and playing videogames. Thank god i could still go to work or it would have gotten way out of hand. I lost about 60 pounds, little over 25 kg since covid restrictions ended and i could go out hiking again. These days i hike about 25-30 kilometers on a weekly basis to keep my weight under control. Maybe if i give up booze and unhealty eating habits as in eating fries atleast 4 times a week combined with a bunch of other unhealthy crap i'd see even more result but so far i'm satisfied with losing the weight i put on during covid and then some by just being able to go out hiking again.

  38. The sooner gamers move on from all the expectations on the new Silent Hill Game or its remake, the better for everyone because I don't think they are willing or even ready to do anything on the game for now. I kinda enjoyed playing Tekken and it's why I'm very much interested in the 8th release of the game.

  42. Yes and no I think it really depends, like for example on one end we have great shows like Castlevania, Arcane, stranger things but on the other hand we have shitty productions like the recent Resideng evil show or the death note adaptation Basically Netflix has a lot of content, more than hbo, disney or prime, but more doesnt always equal to quality

  43. Having to interact with a bunch of assholes you didn't like to begin with. I took body conditioning as an alternative to typical gym class. Body conditioning was just spending time in the weight room, without any kind of set activity. If you just wanted to stand around and chat that was all you did. I did max out on some weights. I could push 410 on the leg press, squat 250, and even got to where I could curl 100. Most didn't dare try to challenge my records. Funny enough, I could never bench more than 115. Being a girl, I typically just benched the bar (45 pounds). The guys enjoyed watching me. Perverts every one of them. So I eventually just started going to the gym and running laps. The guys in the class were always too busy playing basketball to notice me, which made it even better.

I'd say collecting videogames altough nearly everybody who is into videogames seems to do it these days but i still get shit for it every once in a while, like dude why are you still buying all those games or how the heck do yo keep affording it all or why the fuck do you collect japanese region video games or it's time you grow up the fuck up, you know that sort off comments and in most cases even those comments even come from family and friends.
