  1. My girl and I are going to be starting a YouTube channel where we are streaming some games. I'm starting out with RDR2, and she's thinking of starting with the Fable series. Obviously these are somewhat older games, but still really popular. We'll be branching out into other games, but those are the starters. I don't know exactly when the channel will be up, we just have to get a good amount of content ready first.

  2. Overpopulation for one. Crime rates would go through the roof. Health issues would be extreme. It would simply be the downfall of society. If we can even call what we have now "society".

  4. And it actually works out perfectly and everyone lives happily ever after, I'd rather that. Also, I wish there was a pause button for life just so that I could get time to think about certain things in a situation. Hell, I'd even welcome bullet time.

    I looked because I could not believe it, but to you credit it's true but it's not common practice. What YoYogames is doing with their Gamemaker Console licenses is fucking bullshit. It's the equivalent of paying a subscription for Netflix but then Microsoft gating that 3rd party service behind XBox Live Gold. Even if you pay them their fee you still need to go through the same registration process Microsoft, Sony, and/or Nintendo and pay their fees! Their literary charging developers for something they don't provide. If I were a dev, I wouldn't touch their shit with a flag pole. FUCK THE

  8. There used to a guy in high school named Charles Dickins-Thomas. As you can imagine, it was twisted to mean several things by most of us. What’s the funniest actual name you’ve heard of someone having?

  10. I swear I'm not lying about this one. I don't know if his parents were trying to be funny, or if they didn't realize what they were doing. There's an auto dealer here that is Head Motor Company. Well one of the owners had a son. They named him Richard. So the boys name is Richard Head. And what is so wrong with that you may be asking? Well a shortened way to say Richard is Dick. So the boys name is Dick Head. I worked at HMC detailing cars, and to this day I still don't know whether to laugh, cry, or just feel sorry for the poor guy.

  11. It could actually backfire and there could be a game series that snobs flock to. Then it's like the lyrics to Subdivisions by Rush, "Be cool, or be cast out."

  12. I personally don't know why I should care who makes the games. Its how good the games are that I would be interested in. That said, there have been a number of indie games that I have enjoyed a great deal, and the existence of indie devs surely allows for the creation of some very interesting types of games, the likes of which we'd never have had the pleasure of experiencing if it weren't for things like Kickstarter. It doesn't hurt that Indie games are always(?) cheaper, too! 😄

  14. I've just seen a very interesting article from BBC Culture exploring the idea of photo modes in video games being used as a tool to create artwork. Not specifically a game's aesthetic design itself, but the use of Photo Mode to create works of art individually. I've said it before and, even though I'm sure it's not a popular opinion, I'll still stand by the idea that a video game cannot be a work of art itself. I say that because for something to be art it has to have no purpose other than itself, no function. A video game has a function. It's not just entertainment, it's a challen

  15. It depends on the circumstance. If I go to a new place to explore, I don't want to waste the effort when I can't see much. But it adds a mystical feel in a forest, and a spookiness in an urban area. If you know there are no threats around, then low visibility is annoying. But sail the seas in Black Flag when you have to maneuver islands in low visibility, or the swamps in Origins, or a river you might jump into battle any moment as in Valhalla, then low visibility is kind of fun. I love it when there is a sand storm in AC Origins, as well as in Mad Max. It just makes it all that much better. I

  16. I slightly regret not pursuing online racing after a few random races. Fun fact: I once raced a driver who become a sim racing champion, and later became a real world racing champion, and I almost beat him that time with little practice.

  17. I'm in the same boat as you and also don't use social media. If you like being at home, the only real place to meet anyone is on the internet or at work. I actually like being alone because I am my best company. I've accepted the fact that not many people like the things I like. Actually, I should say they like the things I like, but don't do the things I like. Nature is gonna weed you out if you live the single life much longer. But it's ok. I've been weeded out. I'll never get married or have children. But I personally don't mind at all. If you do mind, you better get out there. Everything w

  20. I was once using the alien gun in GTA online and was in a shootout and I accidentally aimed it at the ground which sent me flying. Coincidentally, a fighter jet just started firing their machine guns lighting up everyone on that street. The guy that I was fighting got caught in it while I just happened to get out of the way at the right moment.

  21. Regardless of what your situation is, take a week or two every now and then and do without gaming. It will keep you from burn out a lot more, and give you a rest as well. For example, I haven't really gamed in over a week. I'm letting myself rest. For a while there, from the moment I woke up I raced to my office and jumped on RDR2. I haven't played for a while now, and I'm enjoying the break. Actually I haven't really played much of anything.

  22. Warner Bros. being tone deaf is nothing new. I recall one time, and I apologise for sensationalising it but it's a reflex when talking of WB Games at this point, when they tried to monetise the death of one of their employees. The idea was to immortalise Michael Forgey who had passed away from cancer by adding a half-uruk character that would aid the players in Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.... at a cost. The funds were supposed to go to charity but only those in the US (or most US states) would send the money to charity. Those outside of those US areas would be putting money directly into WB's

  23. I sometimes like to joke about this in real life: If only life were like a video game, where a ragtag group of heroes could go on an adventure, infiltrate North Korea, overthrow the leadership there and liberate the people, bringing about peace and prosperity.

  24. Honestly, every animal that I have seen in the wild has been the coolest! Each creature holds it’s own uniqueness and to see it doing it’s own thing in it’s own natural surroundings is simply put, just the coolest! I never cease to walk away awestruck by the ones we share our Mother Earth with.

  27. I downloaded the images from my Facebook account and found a lot of photo mode images, mostly from Horizon Zero Dawn, but a couple from Uncharted 4 as well that I'd forgotten about. This is as good a place as any to share them, so feel free to comment on this gallery. I'm hosting if on Imgur to avoid flooding the forum with an absurd amount of images, but I'll post a couple of my favourites.

  28. I heard about this from BigfryTV a few days ago. In a way I kinda hate that this is becoming such a hot topic as that is likely going add the the people actually supporting this project even though it's mostly bad publicity. All the bad things that can happen with a Kickstarter have happened here. Broken promises, a crappy alpha that barely works, lack of original coding, asset flipping, stupidity unattainable goals, lying devs and way more backers and support than it ever deserved. The thing that really gets me know is them hiring kids as moderators for thier discord.

  29. Vegans on social media. It’s like every single post they make is required to mention the fact that they’re vegan. Nobody cares, nobody is impressed, you’re not better than others so just shut up and eat your kale and tofu in silence.

  30. I once heard a teenage boy say almost 25 years ago that if you buy the wrong console "your mother wants to be gay." So if you buy the wrong console that makes it your fault your mom is gay. My hometown was usually smarter than that, but the late '90's were apparently the nadir of Eastern Massachusetts. This was back when I was in New England.

  34. In a word, everything. In life you need to sleep, eat, drink, piss, shit, run the daily risk if getting sick or injured, worry about money, face society and law in manners that actually have consequences, wait in real time, there's no fast travel, no extra lives, no superpowers, no saves, no reset, no time travel, no mods, no console commands, no cheats and even if play by all the rules and play it with 100% effort it ultimately results in death no matter what. Video games are great, and life sucks.

  36. This is AC Origins I played tonight. This picture says a lot. You have an assassin in armor a foot away from a vulnerable flamingo. And it sits there in the water knowing it can spread its wings any moment. And to get this close I have never experienced in wildlife in any game. His hands are raised like it's gonna strangle it. The assassin is dangerous, but he is curious and so is the flamingo. When humans interact with wildlife. What happens next is up to the human. Since I'm controlling Bayek, I respect its life. I left in black and white because color is even more dramatic. You saw it here

  37. The sad thing about the whole 'there are good people at Ubisoft too!' angle is that good people aren't celebrated or properly rewarded ANYWAY. They may receive the odd (small) performance bonus, or a free copy of the game, but they're still overworked and underpaid. Those good people who DESERVE to be praised for their amazing hard work (looking at you, Assassin's Creed historical researchers and level designers) are overshadowed by VP bonuses and shitty managers taking credit for their work.

  38. People only feel that men can be creeps but women are equally capable of this but society always tends to give them a pass. Having said that, Craigslist is a breeding ground for all kinds of unscrupulous people. Whenever I'm communicating with anyone from Craigslist, I tend to record all my convos and I keep them short and to the point.

  42. I'd like a Miraak backstory as in from the time of his birth to his fight with some dragon priest and how he came to meet hermaeus mora and what exactly transpired in the convo that led to Miraak accepting his offer. Yes, I know the story covers some of this but it's basic info - I want to see it through Miraak's eyes.

  45. Yeah, there are 2 very important things about carb-less diets: 1) The body can actually use protein and convert it to energy as a last resort, but in the process the body makes ketones which is very toxic, it's called ketosis. 2) The body only absorbs a certain amount of protein in one sitting. The rest turns to fat; plus too much protein makes the body more acidic. Cancer can only grow in an acidic environment. Those meat heads in body building don't understand that starchy carbs-or the low glycemic index carbs, is the energy required to get stronger and have endurance. Sweet
