  2. That's bullshit. Especially to those of us who have no family other than their pets. If they're just an animal, then so are you. We're nothing more the bipedal primates. We're just mammals. We're all part of the genus "Homo". We're not Homo Erectus. We're not Homo Habilus. We're Homo Sapien. You're nothing but an animal. I'm nothing but an animal. @DC is nothing but an animal. This entire forum is full of beings that are nothing but animals. The only difference is: not a god damn thing. You may think you're superior to other animals, but in truth you're not. Homo Sapien is one of the lowest life forms. We have greater technology, but due to our own corruption, we're not much better than whatever is on the bottom. So don't ever say that they're "just an animal". That makes you come of as calling them disposable. "Oh it's dead? I guess I'll just get another one, and toss this one in a dumpster on the way." That is how animal abusers think.

  3. This reply is directly at @Justin11, but I want anyone who sees this to read it and read it carefully. Here's the thing @Justin11. You don't bother to take the time to adequately read a post then without thinking it through you make a reply. The reply is clearly made with inadequate understanding of the post you are replying to and/or a lack of understanding of the facts and the subject matter of the thread itself. Then you say "my bad" and apologise. Then comes the part that genuinely pisses me off, you never learn form this when it happens and sooner or later you do exact same thing again. Why does this keep happening? Why is it despite making this mistake time after time, you keep doing it? Well, I'll tell you why, it's because you don't care. You don't care to put in the effort it takes to avoid making this mistake again, because reading and replying to posts with consistent accuracy on a forum does take effort. It takes reading a post carefully and making sure you understand it (Especially important if English isn't your first language.) then taking just as much care to crafting a reply that is worth making. But for you, getting this wrong is inevitable no matter how many times you "apologize" for it And cherry on top of this shit cake is that in this thread, you are STILL getting it wrong! There's not one point in this entire thread @The Blackangel even mentioned the SNES or The Switch. Look again at her first post; She even said in that post that that was only a potion of her NES games, another thing that needed repeated for your sake because you clearly didn't read it properly. We know you're not doing this maliciously, but there has to come a point where you're not doing it by accident either. People who post on this forum, moderator or not, at the very least deserve to have people who read thier posts actually read them and understand them, especially if the one reading the post intends to reply. I really should not have to explain this to anyone because it's basic forum etiquette as well as common sense. It is so frustrating dealing with someone not understanding and replying to your clearly written, easy to understand posts because they can't be bothered to take the time to read them properly. I'd even call it infuriating. It would actually be better to ignore other people's posts completely than keep doing this. Now, I really don't know where to go with you and the others who consistently do this sort of thing. Another thing I feel like I've said a million times, we understand that English is not the first language for a lot of our members, and if people do struggle with English we are here to help anyone needs help, but it's also true that it's each members responsibility to take the time they need to both read and write posts accurately. However, I tend to find that in most of these instances people tend to leave little time between posts, suggesting they are doing this in a rush. If you keep doing this, we will have to take more affirmative action. We don't want your apologies @Justin11, we want to to learn from these instances.

  4. Hey everyone I'm Ravenfreak, I'm a 32 year old nerd! I mainly enjoy retro games the most but I do play modern games as well. Other things besides games that I like are anime/manga, cartoons/comics, music, movies, forums, and I do enjoy programming from time to time. My favorite animated series is Teen Titans, and my favorite gaming franchise is Sonic the Hedgehog.

  5. What's considered fun can be subjective in my opinion. This is because there are a lot of things that I might find fun in which another person would disagree and that's very normal. The same thing is apparently applicable to video games as well. A gamer might see a particular game to be fun for him while it's not to another. If I'm picking one game that's pure fun to play, it would be the first person life simulation adventure video game Slime Rancher.

    Cool it's good to know atleast somebody takes interest in my recommendations haha you know i always got the idea my posts of games are too obscure for vgr. anyways i had a look trough my collection yesterday evening and here is some more i forgot to post about, i'll just list the titles as i've got chores to do around the house and don't want to get sidetracked ๐Ÿ˜‰ : Boktai -> Can't remember to much about it but since Kojima produced it, it can't be bad. The Pinball of the Dead -> I gave this a play last night and spend playing 2 hours, can't believe i forgot to list the game originally Drill Dozer Lilo & Stitch -> don't judge yet, give it a try first Car Battler Joe Sigma Star Saga Well since most people know me by now i like my japanese shit so if you wanna play something not a whole lot of people have heard of and from what i remember are import friendly : Oriental Blue: Ao no Tengai -> Pretty sure this got a fan translation in english, go play it if you find that rom if memory serves me right it is part of the far east of eden series aka Tengai Makyou which is a series that sadly never left japan. this is an Exellent rpg with many choices to make, that offers a different outcome with branching paths which was quite unique at the time. I'm sure you'll have fun with this one. Tomato Adventure Densetsu no Stafy 1-3 Kururin Paradise -> This is the sequel to Kuru Kuru Kururin i mentioned in a previous post Alright now i really need to start getting to work because the house doesen't clean itself (sadly). To stick to the topic i finished watch dogs legion yesterday, i have some mixed feeling about the game but i'll post about that in the appropriate thread after i finish the dlc and I still need to get some achievement to complete it 100% before i can do that.

  10. This is a bit random, but I'm curious, and also seeking to find out if I'm a little bit mad. When a video game offers you the chance to name specific armour, weapons or equipment (like in The Elder Scrolls, for example), do you have a pattern? I always like to name my equipment after artists, song or albums I like. For example, I'll name a bow "Primo Victoria" named for the Sabaton song/album of the same name. It's Latin for "First Victory", so for me it fits. For the same reason I also like to call armoured footwear "Sabaton" because that's what a "Sabaton" is. I've also named a sword "Lovebites" for the Japanese all-female power metal band, a bow "Unleash The Archers" again for the band of the same name and a mace "Archangel" in tribute to the Amaranthe song bearing the name. What influence do to you draw from for inspiration?

  11. I have made how I personally feel about NFT's quite clear on this forum, so with all due respect to @DC who I know works hard to find good sponsors for the forum, I will not be participating in this. Even so, I know @DC would not have this sponsor on VGR if it wasn't legitimate, so I will offer due respect in kind and check out the game at the very least, and if it's fun to play then it's fun to play. I would encourage others to do the same. However, I would always advise caution with these things.

    Games for two players

    Surely we can add more games right? Man i've been thinking about this the last couple of days and it feels hard to find a few couch co-op games. But apart from the ones mentioned, especially with xbox one and series x in mind as per original posters request. Normally i like using arrows instead of dots but i'll list it the same as @shagger to keep it uniform. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 : What do you get when you combine the 2 best puzzle franchises ever, yes this game. Highly addicting even in single player, it's most likely more fun to play it with a person on the couch. Imo this is the best puzzle game ever made so you can't go wrong either way. Unravel 2: The first one diden't have have co op but the second you can play with a friend together on the couch, exellent puzzle platform where yarn plays a major role in solving puzzles. I think this may appeal to a lot of female gamers because of the cute art style. Rayman Legends : Arguably The best platformer on a xbox console, you can't go wrong with this one. I know it's an older game but still worth playing today. Team Sonic Racing : Nothing beats a kart racer to play in split screen. Crash Team Racing nitro-fueled : Same as above, crash team racing is better then team sonic racing though. Diablo 3: Damn i almost forgot about this, you know what diablo is if you don't then well then what are you even doing on a video game forum. J/K Stardew Valley: I'm sorry i have to bring this game up every few days, but yes you can play stardew valley in co-op, you do have to build a cottage for your companion first. This is probably the best game ever made, so you can't go wrong either way. Halo Master chief collection: The first 2 halo games are imo the best split screen games ever made, it made friendships and also destroyed them. we used to play with 4 players on a tiny Crt tv back in the day which made it even more hectic since you could barly see what you were doing. Nowadays with those huge 4k screens you shoulden't have a problem having fun with this one. As far as i know local split screen is included. If you have an xbox you probably have this already right? Lego games: I think nearly all of them have local co-op so pick which one you like and go for it. I'd highly recomned Lego city undercover because it's not tied to any license or whatsoever and of the lego games i played i had the most fun with. Streets of rage 4: Can't have a list of local co-op games without a good old beat em up, so there you go. I think the second game is still the best in the series though but you can play that aswell on your xbox. See below SEGA Mega Drive Classics / Genesis Classics : I should have listed this one on the top because it's just that good of a compilation, but you know streets of rage all 3 games are included, all the golden axe you could possibly want to play on the couch. Sonic 2, still holds up to this day playing together with a friend. I'm sure there are a ton more on this comp you could play together and if you're tired of playing with a partner, the best jrpg of all time is included aswell Phantasy star IV. There is even a rewind button and save states so you can restart where you left off. Monopoly : Ubisoft released several monopoly games over the years, so just pick one that looks the most interesting to you. Now why would you play a board game on a console, because you can save your game, nobody can cheat and you don't have to stay up until 5am in the morning until the game would possibly be finished, i for one never in my life finished a monopoly game where only one person remained. There are more i could list like Human Fall Flat, Moving out and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime but i have not played these so i can't comment on how they are. I think if you try all those listed above you should be quite busy for a good amount of time.

Red Dead Redemption 2 was released on the PS4 and Xbox One. RDR2 is also available on PC. RDR1 is not available on PC as far as I can tell. So there you have it. Drop the bullshit. Get back on topic and stay on topic.

  16. Don't know why i never followed up to this but better later then never. I've been messing around a bit with a few free to play games in the app store on my dad his old ipad to get a better idea of free to play games. Well needless to say it wasn't the greatest experience i've had, one game blocked me entirely after about 10 minutes because my daily time playtime was up and wanted 4,99 to continue, eh fuck it deleted. So i tried a random rpg who's name i forgotten already and low and behold i immediately was welcomed with a screen to buy their shit, i played it for about half an hour and yeah while the game was not that half bad i'd much rather prefer they charged money for it and be done with it instead of reminding me after every battle i can have a better experience for only 9,99. Yeah no I'm not gonna fall for this shit. The problem there is with these "games" they will be gone in a few years time and you mostlikely will not have the option to continue playing said game because correct me if i'm wrong most woulden't function anymore without an internet connection. If you have spend money on them it's gone, if you happen to feel nostalgic and want to play that free to play game you loved 10 years ago, you probably can't. You could say the same with multiplayer games, once the servers are gone the game is gone. Remember MAG on the ps3 yeah me neither but it is one of many games that is lost in time and 99,9% Of those free to play games will end up with the same fate, so my conclusion it's not wise to spend money on free to play games, you're better off buying a gift for your mother ( it's mothers day next week )or spend it on a real game. To conclude if you make it this far is why i feel like games are becoming more and more consumables, products of their time, with zero intention of being preserved for the future and to me it feels like nobody gives a fuck about that. Music and movies are preserved fairly well, why not videogames even if they are free to play. Damn kind of went on a rant but feels good to spit it out nonetheless.

  17. Yeah the new Jumanji movies are not really based on a real videogame, I mean sure the topic of the movie is that they are trapped in a videogame unlike the original Jumanji movie were they were trapped in a boardgame. But Rampage is based on a real videgame that goes as far as back as the arcades and the NES and some sequels on the n64 and the Wii. Btw Im also a fan of the Doom movie, its one of those movies that is so bad thats its good ๐Ÿ˜† Yeah I believe he is working as a producer on a movie adaptation for It Takes Two, a great game btw it was game of the year 2021 and it surely earn its place there.

  18. Since when were Welcome to the Jungle, and Rampage, (Jumanji) The Next Level based of video games? I know that in the Jumanji movies he's in the story goes that they enter the worls of Jumanji as if it were a video game, but they are not actually based on a video game that exists in real life. Doom is the only one you listed that is actually based on a real life video game, and to the best of my knowledge, that's the only time he has been in one.

  24. How long are you planning on playing games? I think this is a question that nobody can answer, unless you came from the future but you aren't now are you. When i read these kind of questions that you can't really give a proper answer to. I always ask myself the question how much have i changed as a person over the years, you know people change and their interest can become something completly else over time. I mean ask yourself what was into 10-15 years ago, i'm i still into the same things and what not? Their are several reasons why somebody would give up on a hobby, maybe it's the lack of time, just losing interest alltogether is another valid reason to consider. I could give a few examples on how my interests and how i changed as a person the past 10 years but i would be going way offtopic and don't want to do that however one consistent factor is that gaming has always been part of my life and i can see it to continue to be a part of my life for the foreseeable future.

  25. I have spoke of this before, but the real problem with delays and games coming out unfinished and buggy is about game companies announcing release dates way too early. This is exactly what happened with Cyberpunk 2077, they announced the release date at E3 while all eyes were on them to start taking in preorders almost a year before said release. We all know what happend next, the game got delayed on less than three occasions for them to feel compelled to release the game full 18 months after that E3 announcement knowing it was still busted. If they had just waited to announce the release date when they knew they would have the game ready, that entire controversy could have been avoided. I fully agree @kingpotato, if a developer/publisher is faced with a choice of releasing a half baked game or delaying, delaying it is the best option every time, but they should some common sense and only announce a release date when they know that can make that date and have the game not nesserily perfect (It's asking a lot to ask them to find every bug in a modern game), but at least complete and fully functional. Do that, and very likely will not have to face that dilemma at all.

  28. Oh, that's Dusk Golem. We knew him from the older forum for Biohaze. He popped in from time to time with rumours. Many of them came true as well, while some did not. He then began to lose some credibility. In fact, he leaked RE8 about 4 months before Capcom revealed it at E3, back in 2020. He was accurate about everything he said back then, which is why people treated him as the 'go to' guy for the latest rumblings. And I believe he's the one who also started the Silent Hill hearsay. But that had so far, not amounted to anything. To be honest, I think he's quite reliable otherwise.

  30. I don't see this making any difference. EA football or whatever they plan to name the series from now on will be same, toxic pile of slime as least year's game, like it is every year. The only change to expect is to perhaps see another developer/publisher making the official FIFA game in the future, and I wouldn't expect much from that either. If anything FIFA care even less about the quality and ethics of the EA Sports FIFA games than EA did. They were happy for the games to that toxic pile of slime so long as that topic pile of slime make them money. @Withywarlock may have described this a "The End of Era", but to me it sounds more reminiscent of that time somebody in 1918 said "That was the war to end all war.". Just a prologue to more misery and disappointed.

  32. The yearly release system doesnt work anymore (it never did), publishers and developers should take a year off and rethink the way the game is presented, they could probably go the same route as PES now E-Football and go for a live service and free to play type of game with cosmetics only microtransactions, at least if somebody wants to play the game they dont have to pay every year for a release of a new game. Or if you just want to play some casual co-op soccer matches you can just buy whatever fifa game version from 2018 and below for less than 5 US dollars, even at my local gamestop they are selling used copies of thhe game for less than a dollar.

I dont think you know what an Hugo award is, an Hugo award is a literary award for the best science fiction or fantasy works and achievements , as in Short stories, Novels, Art and just recently they added a Best Videogame category in this case the first ever winner was Hades. A gaming studio cannot win an award like this and even less for purchasing another company, that has nothing to do with the award itself and doesnt deserve an award in anyway because it was a business purchase

    Games for two players

    You managed to list a couple of games I would have suggested already, so I'll have to dig a little deeper. Some of these game I'm about to list are, I admit, a little older, but if you haven't played them they knew to you both. Divinity: Original Sin: A top down RPG with a cooperative play mode. A fairly challenging and lengthy game, but you do have to be into the genre. Child of Light: This is a beautiful game that can be played alone or cooperatively. At any point during the game, a second player can join and take control of Auroraโ€™s companion Igniculus, who is a ball of light later discovered to be an Elemental and is able to fly freely around the screen. Because of that I'll admit it's probably not the most compelling cooperative experience on this list, but it's great game none the less. Cuphead: I'll admit I haven't actually played this one, but main reason I haven't is because I did not want to play it alone. It's a fiercely difficult 2D platformer/sidescroller in the style of a 1930's cartoon. Haven: This is a game I started playing quite recently. It's a game where you play as a couple (can be a straight or same sex couple) exploring a strange planet in escape of you old lives in society. You look for materials and recourses on this mysterious planted in bid to eventually escape and find a new life. The gameplay is basic, but functional and is defiantly geared more towards coop. It's a sweet little game and makes sense to play as a couple. Well, that's what I've got. Hopefully others have more ideas, but I hope that was helpful.

  45. Well, the game is pretty solid apart from that. I'd say the story is also virtually non existant basically an afterthought but it it's marketed as a gameplay focused game. And it delivers on that front, the combat has a badass feeling to it that very few games can replicate you have an extensive movelist of kung fu you can utilize to fight people like you can even pick up baseball bats and smash people up with it. The animations also feel very crunchy like you can feel each blow. Especially the finishers. The repetitivity is really the main problem the game has though if you ask me. It's just that one flaw that drags it down. It's an average game but could have been great if it wasn't based around dying constantly.

  47. What I need to point out fist of all is that you only including half of @Justin11's post to make it look irrelevant is not fair. By actually looking at the entire post; And I'm looking at both you and @Heatman, I'm not letting you of with this either; I'd say @Justin11 is on topic. I'm not gonna lie, it's not the easiest post to read and he neglected to mention that RDR2 came in 2018, but there is no need "call him out" like this. I at least understood what he meant. Rockstar haven't released anything and since RDR2 apart from "the trilogy" which was a disaster and the fact that Rockstar have only released one new game in the last decade is pertinent to this topic. I don't even know if this omission of RDR2's 2018 replace date is what you two are complaining about, and whether it is or not, you both completely failed to connect that or anything to @Justin11's post. It also doesn't justify this allegation @Heatman made that @Justin11 hasn't played the game. I can love a game without remembering when it came out. So if anyone is guilty of posting something off-topic and irrelevant as well as confusing, it's you two, not @Justin11. Might I suggest first and foremost that you worry about the quality and consistency of your own posts first, and if you feel something needs attention, report it. Especially you @Boblee since you actually double posted your "complaint" of @Justin11, but don't worry, I've already fixed that.

For years we were all saying the PS4 controller was the most comfortable controller ever made. The PS5 controller straight up beats the PS4 controller in comfort. It goes into your hand perfectly. I don't think it can ever be beaten.

  49. Celebs should stay away from videogames, we don't need them, their presence in my opinion is detrimental to games. For example Cyberpunk 2077 was extensively re-written to give an earlier entrance and more significant role to Keanu Reeves. Which I think has made the game much worse than it could've been had they stuck to the original pacing of the story. Celebs are bad for gaming because: They take a huge paycheck that could be better utilized to make the actual game better. They stifle artistic freedom because artists instead of creating any character they imagine they have to re-create the celebrity's likeness in the game They hinder writing, because characters played by celebrities, get preferential treatment by the writers. They prevent modding, because most celebrities would not allow people to use their likeness in any non pre-approved way. They take jobs from dedicated voice actors who have been in the industry long before gaming become a multi billion dollar industry. While the advantage of having them is singular: Marketing value through name recognition That's it.
