  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  10. 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.

  13. 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

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  18. 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

  20. 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.

  21. 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

    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

  28. 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

  30. 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

  31. 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

  32. "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

  33. 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

  37. I'd say Stellaris, which is a grand strategy game I've been playing for the last few weeks, but honestly, the difficulty is mostly artificial in that game. AI empires are dumb as rocks, but fast as Sonic the Hedgehog on a good day, and difficulty settings don't really improve their intelligence at all; they just give them bonuses that more easily compensate for their stupidity. Human players are the real threats, though for obvious reasons, they aren't a factor in single-player mode. Honestly, I think in general terms, the Halo series has done a good job about this. I mean, I never notice

  38. I don't think all, or even most, games really need an easy mode. Accessibility is one thing, but difficulty is another matter entirely. Some games – particularly those that are played for their competitive multiplayer – can, in fact, be negatively impacted by both. To illustrate, I want to talk about a game series that I greatly enjoy: StarCraft For those who don't know, StarCraft is a series of sci-fi RTS games created and published by Blizzard. There are presently 2 games in this series: StarCraft, released in 1998, with an expansion (StarCraft: Brood War) being released later that

    Opening a Gaming Store

    I think opening a game store in the age and time of the digital download does not sound like good investment. Instead store that hosts the esports tournament. And also charges some fee can be a good option in such case.

    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.
