  2. 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

  3. The problem with the Wii is that it's not 4rth best-selling home console of all time, it's the worlds best-selling dust collector. Parents bought it for family to enjoy at parties, then it spends the rest of life in a cupboard somewhere. It's a level of casual only appeal that makes mobile gaming look like Dungeons and Dragons. Everyone bought the console, but nobody played it, and if need to I can even prove it. You see, I've doing some maths, and based on sales totals of every game that sold 1 millions units or more for the Wii, the average Wii owner owned less than four games for the system

  7. Hi @Shagger, thanks for creating this thread. I'm appreciative of how quickly you've become involved with our community. It really means a lot. I am personally against a Discord because this is already a pretty tight knit community as it is and my concern is that a Discord server would take away from the activity on the forums. It's already easy for people to communicate here through PMs, various forum threads, and the General Chat. I'll leave this topic open for you to reply to and others to weigh in but I think it's best for us to continue without Discord, at least for the time being.

  12. 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

I would say it would be great to have to these barriers break without the world ending but let's face it! In just the first few months of this year, the US tried to start World War 3, half of Australia has been on fire and now there is a global pandemic where people are going bonkers over bog roll. I think it's time all people, regardless of nationality, political standpoint, religions beliefs, sexual orientation, gen

  20. One of the most commonly known symptoms of both autism and aspergers syndrome is the inability to emphasise with others and to express emotions in a rational manner. I myself suffer from this symptom heavily. Feelings such as anger, sadness and fear (foreshadowing) are feelings that I, like many others, have trouble expressing. In particular, I try my absolute hardest to shut off these emotions. The concept of what can be considered as "true fear" varies from person to person. While I'm certainly no psychologist, I would assume that fear can be attributed to hormones within our blo

  22. Sorry, but that's not entirely accurate. Going back to the 80's, 90's and into the 2000's, PC 's (Personal Computers) were all designed as a utility for what you described as the "routine work" with some capacity for playing games on them. However, and very recently, PC's changed. And they changed because they had to. The utilities these large, impractical and expensive devices became more accessible on newer devices like cheap laptops, tablet computers and phones. Even offices began using more efficient servers with connected workstations rathen than individual computers. The Utilit

  23. I'm sorry but that is simply not true. PC's are FAR more expensive than consoles to buy and upgrade and you save next to nothing in the cost of buying games. New releases are maybe £5 to £10 cheaper but useually not even that. The deals you get Steam sales or whatever aren't any better than XBox Live or PSN either, not to mention used games and services like XBox Game Pass. Even if the games were legitimately and consistently cheaper on PC in the current climate of publishers relaying more on recurrent user spending models like DLC and Microtransactions the upfront cost barely m

  24. I'm sorry @StaceyPowers, but even this very question grinds my gears. There's swings and roundabouts, but just asking said question implies console and PC gamers have to agree that there's an overall advantage to one or the other and I hate that. I'm a multiplat gamer, and could do into detail about the differences between the platforms and make clear how I feel about them, but why? Nobody would learn anything. The only thing I'm willing to dedicate myself to is that PC fanboys are the worst, but I still dread the social media garbage we're inevitably due from console fanboys with the nex

  26. "Overall… yeah while I may subjectively enjoy Andromeda because of my own tastes, it is hard to call this a good game. And it makes me sad because this could’ve been a lot better than it ended up being. What we’re left with is a rushed product that ultimately doesn’t really add much to the franchise and feels really clunky and unpolished, which is a real shame. That being said, the positives are there. The game’s strong combat, gorgeous environments, witty character dialogue that genuinely brought a smile to my face and weak but enjoyably cheesy story makes this a game you might want to c

    Too Much Gaming!

    How the hell is gaming going to get “abusive”? Unless someone is cracking you in the head with an Xbox, gaming isn’t abusive.

  28. Hi everyone! I want to say thank you to each and every one of you for your wonderful contributions to our forum. We have something really special going on with this community. We’re small, we’re tight-knit, and we’ve got incredible rapport between our members. Every day, we’re sharing our passion for gaming, and the atmosphere here is welcoming and respectful. I don’t think I need to tell you what a rarity that is online today. When I started VGR, that was exactly what I hoped to build, but I’m blown away by how it’s actually come together. And that is because of you. So thank y

  30. Hi all, I'm new here 🙂 Thought I'd ask an interesting question. If you could combine certain features of 2 games together, what would they be and what would you make? Now I guess I better start. I'd make a Witcher 3 MMORPG by combining the story, characters, and world of Witcher 3 with Black Desert Online, which has a really good combat system, graphics, and is a decent all around good MMO in my opinion (apart from the upgrade system).

  35. I actually theorised about this very topic in part of an article from a few months back. You might find it an interesting read! At present, I'd say Hammerfell is definitely the most likely, but it's worth considering context as to why it would make sense following Skyrim, and I delve into that here: https://www.vgr.com/will-see-empire-fall-elder-scrolls-6/

  40. Hi guys. I could use some advice on what games to play. I'm pretty new to video games. Except for the Sims franchise. I've played some Borderlands and Left4Dead 2 with a friend, but that's a pretty long time ago (that was so much fun, but I don't think I'd enjoy playing them alone). However, recently I've fallen in love with Skyrim. I'm having so much fun, and that has made me want to explore more games. Browsing around for other games I might enjoy I've come across The Witcher 3 and Assassins Creed Oddyssey. Both look so beautiful and sound amazing. My worry is that they'd be too hard fo

    Gaming in prisions

    I believe depriving a person of their freedom is already a harsh punishment, and that the main purpose for doing so should be for the safety of others, not for punishment or justice. Ideally, I'd prefer a system geared toward rehabilitation. I see no reason not to give prisoners video games, especially if they behave. In all frankness, a lot of the crap that goes on in prisons probably could be reduced if prisoners were not so bored to begin with.

    PS Plus Rewards

    Slightly different to Sony Rewards, PS Plus Rewards gives freebies to PlayStation Plus users. I'm not sure if this is a brand new feature or if they have been available for other countries for a while. However, they have two great offers available at the moment. The best offer being free NOW TV Sports pass for 7 days that will expire in 12 months. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if this is available for other countries but it is definitely available for PlayStation Plus users in the UK Get your rewards here - https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/explore/playstation-plus/ps-plus-rewards/

This poll will run until December 21st, so bare in mind if you haven't played some of the games yet, you can vote for them later.

  46. For me I think it's gotta be The Witcher 3. All the towns and cities you visit have their own culture and way of speaking and I love that about it. It's a vibrant world and so very fascinating. I could get lost overhearing people talk to each other for hours.
