    Most Beautiful Game World?

    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.

    Has anyone else done this? I bought Festers Quest (NES) a few years ago, and never had any real intention of playing it. The reason I bought it was because I remember seeing the commercials for it when I was a kid, and I remember desperately wanting it. Now that I'm an adult, I was finally able to get it. I've seen the gameplay, and know the mechanics of the game are pure shit. So if I was to play it, for me it would require a Game Genie. So it may have been a bit of nostalgia that led me to buy it. I'm not sure. But I was just curious if anyone else has ever done this.

    Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2 is hilarius, his comments between fights and after some missions are normally jokes so bad that they are good.

    I think multiplayer tests your capacity towards the competition. Single player is good enough to test yourself against AI but with real human, you have to compete at some point makes it fun.

    Yep, that was me and the game was indeed Silent Hill back on the PS1. The iconic fog effect was used to mask the fact the PS1 found it difficult to render 3D. The decision turned out to be a hit, as obviously the fog went on to become a staple in the Konami horror franchise.

    No. What happens if my Internet crashed for more than 12 hours or let's say I have a slow connection due to my Broadband package? A digital console wouldn't work out so well as there would be no ability to play offline. My personal preference is Physical Copies of computer games anyway, so I'd rather have a normal console as then I can have the best of both.

    Best and worst Zelda game ?

    I hated Wind Waker. It was just way too cartooney for me. I wasn't a big fan of Twilight Princess, and never even counted Skyward Sword as an actual Zelda game. I haven't played BOTW yet either so I can't consider it on this list. Majoras Mask was good. A pain in the ass, but still good. Ocarina was a really well designed game, and loads of fun. Link To The Past is high on my list as one of the best. Zelda 2 is probably the most difficult in the entire series, and doesn't really keep to the story. But my all time favorite is the one that got the series started. The original Legend Of Zelda on the NES. It was the best they have made. There are other titles in the series that are great, but they just can't match the original. In my opinion no Zelda title ever has or will match or even rival the original.

    Fallout 76 and Anthem are not that bad

    I think anthem is being criticized for no reason. i loved the gameplay of anthem. I think it has potential. I am sure that more and more such high graphics game get in the market. I prefer having a strong story though something anthem like games lack. But fall out 76 is not worth it. I have seen the gameplay over and over and trying to decide if it's worth it. unless you played previous fall out games, it's not worth it.

    Hi everyone! I just joined. I'm a huge gamer. I've been gaming since I was a little girl. I play mostly RPG-type games with lots of action, but I love a good FPS or racing game too! Nice to meet you all!

    Mass Effect

    Yeah, the starting of Mass Effect one nearly put me to sleep but it was a great series. It's a pity that EA got their grubby little paws on it because they have managed to kill what was a once amazing experience.

    Your thoughts on The Witcher 3

    My desktop that has a 7th generation I7 processor and a GTX 1080 TI drops to 35 - 40 frames per second in some locations of the game. That's the major flaw the Witcher 3 has...You need a pretty powerful machine to run it on ultra.

    Good shoutout! Just played a bit of 2 player Golden Axe with my daughter before bed (she's never played it before). She really enjoyed it!

    Barricading myself in somewhere like a huge shopping store would definitely be an idea I would have, especially if it was a store that cooks their own foods like chicken and such because then you would have the ability to cook food as well as also have access to as much food, toiletries and such as possible. I guess if I could get in a shopping store near numerous other stores within short walking distance that would be amazing as well as I would have access to a lot more than just what is in a store, my only worry would be how I would get to and from safely. I guess if the store I barricaded myself into had DIY products I would be able to grab things to use against the zombies and be safe going from one place to another.

    Been enjoying the hell out of it! My initial thoughts: MP is a blast Zombies is hella fun Specialist HQ is interesting My only complaints: No crossbow... 😞 No Dead Ops Arcade... 😞 God damn, team killing ruins the fun of playing Blackout. Will only do Solo from now on until that shit is fixed.

    I don't see a $20 jump happening since that would be an awfully dramatic increase, but I could definitely see a $10 jump. I would be totally okay with this if they in turn reduce the amount of "season pass" type content and release fuller games from the start. But I don't trust the industry to be honest enough to make that change. Publishers are greedy and will want to milk each release for everything they're worth. So if they're not going to change, I see no reason to pay more for the same stuff. Especially as graphics are plateauing and the differences in generations are becoming more and more marginal.

    Ask Alyxx

    I've been creating games since around 2002-2004 when I started trying different programming languages. I started out using DarkBASIC, which was better suited for 3D games, but eventually landed on Game Maker. I made a few 2D retro style games around 2004-2006, mostly for my own practice. As for what got me into game design, I think it's just the fact I am a creative person who needs different projects to do, and aside from graphical design and music production, it was another field I could express myself in. I also think I wanted to make my own games because of being a lifelong gamer. I've been playing computer games since as long as I can remember so it feels natural for me to also make my own games. Around 2008-2009 I came up with the idea for ETHER, originally as a Wolfenstein 3D mod, an idea that never came to fruition as I ran into problems making custom music for the game. Some years later I played MURI on PC and that inspired me to do ETHER as an oldschool EGA platformer instead as it reminded me of the games I grew up playing and I wanted to do the game as a tribute to my childhood.

    How Current Are You On Games?

    I'm a bit of a late adopter when it comes to games. Mostly due to money. I can't buy every new release when it comes out, I'd really be poor. Same with consoles, I would have a Nintendo Switch by now its been out for a while. But I never feel bad because the games get cheaper after a few years of waiting.

    I've surprisingly got a lot of decisions I regret when it comes to video games... The one I can remember off the top of my head is in Dragon Age 2 and siding with the mages. Only, I'd not realized that I hadn't gotten Fenris to 100% rivalry and so, no matter how much I tried to persuade him, he just wouldn't listen and I ended up having to kill him. I tried to carry on anyway, acting like it didn't bother me that I had just killed my Hawke's best friend, but by the time I'd gotten to the end of the game I was SO heartbroken (I wasn't even ROMANCING the dude) that I just restarted the whole game again. I felt so ill after it too. Video games, man.

    Sniping tactics in FPS games

    In one of the PS5 patents leaked earlier this year if I am not mistaken they had some kind of emulation software capable of theoretically playing games as far back as the original PS.so they could have easily done if they wanted. What I suspect is what I mentioned before about profit margins in addition to some brand new accessories coming out for the PS5 that may not be compatible with most previous generation games.

    Hilarious video game quotes

    Trevor is a living legend - the best video game character ever created. I'm not sure if any video game character has ever made me start laughing just by them appearing on the screen.

    The last of VGR's five E3 recap videos is now up on YouTube! This time, Jacob and I recap Nintendo's conference. Once again, apologies that the audio quality is a bit subpar this time - Jacob accidentally recorded on the wrong microphone for videos 4 and 5. It should be back to normal next time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwHsQ8hZ-tE

    Blog

    @DC You should open up the blogs. I'm on another forum that is this exact same system, so I know it has it. I think they would be an asset for a lot of members. For example @UleTheVee makes a lot of posts "Ule's view" that are really interesting, but don't always get a lot of replies. Also I would like a place to rant/rave about games and give a review of them without pushing topics out of view to the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pages.

    Nintendo has said recently that they want to release at least 20 indies per week. That's huge! And as an indie lover, I'm glad to have picked the Switch as my first ever console πŸ˜›
