  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. 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 🙂

  3. There’s no beating around the bush; 2020 has been a tough year for most of us. But while we may be missing our local friends and family, we have a great online community here at VGR that has helped us all to feel connected, to share some laughs, and to get through the hard times. And that is thanks to the contributions of our wonderful members. We appreciate every thoughtful post made by every member here. We cannot recognize everyone, but we want to give special thanks to the following core members for enriching VGR Forum. @StaceyPowers As a VGR staff writer, we know you are busy, b

  4. There's one person who wasn't mentioned in the list. @DC Thank you for creating and running a forum for gamers to come together and discuss all areas of gaming. From retro/classic gaming to current gen, mobile, and PC gaming. We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you. So many of us would be completely out of the loop on things if it wasn't for VGR and the work you do. Hell I personally wouldn't even know what the PS5 and Xbox X/S look like. Assuming I knew that they had been released. So many of us have been introduced to games we otherwise wouldn't have known about. We have be

  5. Being a classic gamer, I can guarantee that as long as I can play, the old stuff will never be forgotten. I got my PhD in Console Emergency Surgery when I was 5. I know how to administer CPR to a Nintendo better than anyone. So I’m going to keep them all alive.

  6. Shagger Says: It took me a while, but I finally found the time to stitch this review together. This isn't an easy one, not just because I'm keeping it spoiler free, but this game has divided opinion so much since it launched that it's hard to say weather or not you trust yourself and your own views any more. But I thought about it, and decide to go for it as it's impossible to avoid invoking somebody's ire with ones view on this game anyway. So my disclaimer is, take it, or leave it. I also do this on the assumption that whoever's reading this has played the first game, so ev

    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

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  16. 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?

  18. 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.

  19. 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

    Rat Guide

    PART 1 - CHOOSING YOUR RAT You need to decide first off whether you want them to breed or not. If you don't want them breeding then you need to choose only one sex. Either male or female. Both genders typically get along well with each other, but there is always a hierarchy. One rat will be dominant. They will "battle" for dominance, but it is almost never true violence. They tend to wrestle or box more. Once you decide on your gender, decide how many you want. Rats are social animals and will not do well alone. I highly recommend a minimum of 4 rats. The more rats you get the better their h

  21. Yeah, as interesting as a game boy game can be, considering the limitations. I don't look at ebay for pricing, as the prices are heavily inflated because people think they have something worth more than it really is. If I really want to grab a game boy, I'd look at thrift stores, game shops that specialize in the sale of retro games and consoles and so on. You're bound to get a much better deal, unless they look at ebay and price that way. First key, don't use ebay to find your price. Use something like pricecharting, as you'll at least get a better picture of what it's going for on e

  22. I think games should be authentic period. If you aim to do a game set in a fictional future, don't drag commentary on current real world events into it. Sure games can be educational, and should be. They can build skills etc. But hiding propaganda in them is a disservice, and outright malicious. Especially in games aimed at children. The developers should always be very clear and transparent about their intentions. Never use games as a platform for piggybacking controversial messages.

  23. Yes, all the time. You carry and seve the "bestest" weapons for whatever and you end up finishing the game with a pea shooter. I think this just goes back to bad game design. Like the typhoon in deusex human revolution. You find maybe 3 shoots for it through the entire game.

  24. So I'm basically venting my frustration here because I have nobody to really talk to about it in real life. I always say that I don't really have any friends, but I actually do have one, but one who I can only tolerate in small doses. The thing is, she has major anxiety problems (a thing she can't be faulted for), and I guess this carries over into the video game playing experience. The thing is, I've dealt with people of this sort before, who get SO angry when bad things happen (i.e. they die a lot) in a video game and instead of acknowledging that maybe they just need more practice, they

  25. So much gore and torture you can smell it through the tv. Walk by recently used torture devices with matted insides some of which are still dripping. And that dripping never stops. You can always hear it. Faint voices of screams that are on its last round of echoes. The sound of chains dangling in the silence from an unknown breeze. Hot inferno in one chamber, and cold ghostly chill in another. Bones and limbs laying around as if kicked to the side like garbage, or fallen from a cart of bodies. Growls from creatures that are somewhere, and every turn you anticipate the worst. Cold stone walls

  30. No fucking way. I value honesty, and despise greed, and would never support some piece of shit like that. If some scalper tried to sell me one, I would knock their worthless ass to the ground then squat down and piss on their face. After that I would just raid their pockets and take their console. Yes, I would rob them.

  31. I can't believe I'm admitting this. Just remember I was drunk off my ass, and honestly don't remember doing it. It was apparently around 3:00 in the morning. I know we had hot pockets in the freezer, and apparently thought I was microwaving one. What it turned out to be was that I was microwaving a sponge. I kept commenting on how tough and bland this "hot pocket" was to my girl. She just took out her phone and recorded the whole thing. I would say I didn't need toilet paper for a day or two as the sponge would wipe my as itself as it came out, but that's just gross. This happened

  32. I enjoyed dying lights take on open world quite a bit. You really felt like you were in the slums of some poor country when you were exploring the first large map. The map flow was very good as well, you were basically just running from one side of the map to the next hitting zombies with weapons but it never felt boring because you could do it in different ways each time. The movement system that game offered made it feel very organic when you traversed the world. And the world complemented that by being set in the middle of a south american city, whose types of cities are generally have

  35. A little disclaimer. Everything I'm about to say I say as my own individual person, not as a mod nor a representative of VGR in any way. And yourself @m76as well as anyone can respond freely without fear of reprisal. What you are saying are the words of someone who clearly has not made any effort to understand or research the message BLM is trying to put out, and that is also, with all due respect, kinda selfish. You're just happy to live in your little bubble where everything is fine. In your white world, you don't get guns drawn of you for just walking down the street. You don't

  37. oh dear, I'm a little scared of posting here as my unpopular opinions tend to be very very unpopular and I don't wish to be banned. but here goes and in no order:- 1:- Achievements/Trophies. I feel these are one of the worst additions to gaming in decades for several reasons: 1st they are worthless and meaningless. I mean whether you have 1 achievement or a million, it makes no difference. 2nd they actually set a bad mindset and instead of playing a game and exploring/discovering things themselves, they simply follow a 'checklist' of things to do set by the devs, hardly my idea

    Forum Mod to Combat Spam.

    Now, @DC, I don't think a single person will doubt what you do as an admin is anything less than a commendable effort. You have all our admiration and respect. The contest's, the points, giveaways and forum moderation, you do an amazing job. However, we're at the point where the spam that's flooding the forum is in need of new policy to combat and, I'd say, an additional moderator to help enforce it because it is becoming a problem. I think I speak for all of us, [email protected] Blackangel @Crazycrab, @skyfire, @StaceyPowers and everyone else when I say we do not doubt your commitment nor abilit

  43. It's funny how other companies just can't replicate the very distinct atmosphere created by Kojima on P.T. Demo, even when they pretty much recreate the house, just like in this game. There's always something missing on all these clones as they can't effectively build tension and horror in a natural way. Only Kojima will be able to bring it back from the grave, I guess. Maybe one day.

  45. I believe it is a sign of hypocrisy, they have a desire to game, but they are so afraid of being labelled childish that they feel they need to disavow it publicly as loudly as possible. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the haters were gamers in secret.

  46. Most fun weapon was the flak cannon from Unreal. Two distinctive firing modes, one explode on impact the other bounces off walls and objects. Another fun one is the grenade launcher from quake for the same reason. Sadly no recent game has similar weapons.
