    Milestone Thread

    75,000 forum posts by the end of July? That would be very impressive. I must say the forum has been quite active the past 2-3 weeks. Thanks all for your contributions and continued support!

    Gaming and self-esteem

    I totally agree mate - or else we'll just be like those people who rage over games and destroy their electronics.

    Are forums dead?

    It's primarily due to alternative forms of social media and interaction like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, heck just about anywhere. But the primary reasons for forums dying are Facebook Groups and Discord. With that being said, there are many great forums still around (like VGR) and forums are here to stay, especially if they offer mobile access and compatibility.

  4. He's right @skyfire. You could generate a list of "indie" games and include Skyrim, Grand Theft Auto 4 and The Witcher 3 and it would be perfectly valid.

  5. No, independent only means that they are operating without a third party publisher. CD Project Red is an independent studio and they have hundreds of employees. It's a common misconception, the term "independent" has absolutely nothing to do with the size or scale of the business.

  6. Haha, exactly. I absolutely understand how you feel and it's an individual differences thing and there is absolutely nothing wrong with feeling that way.

  7. He might be a veteran but also responsible for some of the biggest misteps at bioware. Like the red green and blue ending for ME3, and the consequent artistic integrity excuse for doubling down on it instead of improving it. Also it was under his leadership that they wasted time for years with no clear direction and then had to wrap up both ME:Andromeda and Anthem in basically 18 months after EA stepped on their collective necks.

  8. The majority I think overestimate their abilities. It's like that in most aspects of life. In my opinion it's a humility and modesty issue. If you're a master at a game, you're free to admit it. But if you suck, don't boast about your ability when you have none. I can't play a guitar (yet) so I can't go around boasting about my "ability". I know everything about the game play of Zelda Link To The Past (SNES) so I'm free to admit that. In my case I know a little about a lot and a lot about a little. But the former would be the bigger category.

  9. It happens with me when I play in Multiplayer mode. When opponents starts bullying for getting defeated, it makes me angry, and I play even harder to regain my self confidence. 😊

  11. I was VERY exited about this game when it was first announced. The whole ship battles and mechanics from Assassin's Creed Black Flag expanded into it's own game with multiplayer and I heard at one point there would be a campaign and PVE as well. It sounded like a dream game... but now it seems to be a nightmare. If Ubisoft do release this it will likely be just slapped together to make up at least some of the development costs, and that's really sad. I feel sorry for the devs because this still has a lot of potential that might be forever lost.

  16. Considering that McDonalds food is mostly just filler and not actual meat, I would choose to hunt and gather. Also it's much healthier to do it that way. Sure, it's quicker to take a run through McDonalds, but having other choices would be a much better choice for me.

    Gaming and self-esteem

    I also heard about decreased/increased self-esteem while gaming from my friends and colleagues. I try to be easy about it. It's just a game, eventually, and it shouldn't impact my real life.

  20. The way I see it, humans have a responsibility to protect the environment they live in or do what they can to protect Earth and all life in it. Think about your house, or living area; You keep it clean right? You have sanitation to get rid of waste; you protect it; you want it to be comfortable; you have food to eat and clean water. You wouldn't just stand by and let some vandals spray paint it, break down the walls, and leave toxic sludge where you sleep; right? Now go outside, and look around you. That is also your home. Protect it.

  26. A good portion of that was no doubt born out of pressure and frustration on the part of EA, but he has made some questionable creative decisions. Maybe without that pressure he can do better but won't know until we see what he and his studio can accomplish on thier own merit.

    Steam Deck

    I wouldn't put so much faith in Valve. Remember the whole "Steam Machine" fad that fizzled away to nothing? That didn't catch on for many reasons, but what it mostly boils down to is when Valve designed the concept they clearly had no clue why people played games on console instead of PC's. They petty much assumed people played on console because they can't build PC's, wanted a box that would fit on a shelf and only played on controllers and that's about all thought process they put into it. This has been conceived with comparatively more common sense, but only because this isn't a new idea. There's other, similar devices out there, this is just the first one from a household name brand like Valve and Steam. This will not be a success if Valve underestimate the target audience again like the did with the Steam Machine.

    Yes Opera, firefox, Hola or hulu and many others. they can't recover the free giving unless they are selling the data. plus their ads network target you based on local network and not foreign network so that shows you are kind of open to the target website to track.

  30. lol Oh man - this is one of the few things that can trigger me in a game. It's one thing for the enemy to use tactical skills and have pretty strong abilities to beat you. It's another thing when the enemy only outlasts by taking way more damage than you and doesn't show any particular skill.

  31. I just think that if you're a master at every game, you can get bored easily. For example: What's the point of playing with friends if I always beat them?

    Hello! Name is Kokushibo, yes from Demon Slayer. I am excited to join the community and talk more about games as that is primarily my passion. I do a bit of streaming on the side but took a break for a while recently. Hoping to return to it soon. See you all around!

  36. I hate when the system lags and it's usually at a really good part in the game! Either that or it totally gives out on me which hasn't happened in a long time but maybe I'm jinxing it now? It really spoils the momentum when stuff like that happens.

  40. I don't think I have the concentration for drawing anymore, but I remember how much I loved it. Forget about trying to draw from your head. Look at an object and just take your time drawing what it looks like. An egg is always a good place to start because of its shape and lack of any detail. Practice the shapes first. Then work on line quality; that means look at the light source and just make the line darker where there is less light and without taking the pencil off the paper, make your line get lighter and thinner and barely visible as you curve it around the part of egg where the light hits. Once you get line quality down, then practice shading. Eventually you can draw the egg just using the shading technique. I used to always draw outdoor scenes in charcoal. The whole dark and light affect really makes things stand out. But to get the shapes right I would just softly sketch an outline first to get proportions correct. DO NOT try to start drawing people or faces first.

  41. Same here - I saw that some media outlets called it "innovative". I was confused because nothing about this game screens innovative in any way shape or form. Mobile gaming for the most part is an absolute cesspool. I mean it had a great start in the 2011-2014 period where there were great games with pretty good storytelling and action. But since then, it's just fallen sharply off a cliff and will never recover.

  45. I would think this should be something that the parents choose for their families and not something that any government should impose. Yes, children's brains and health are at risk if they are constantly are glued to a video game. But parents should be the ones who step in and set boundaries.

    Casual gamer

    Honestly, and with all due respect to @HolisticStorm, I'd rather live in world where this ridiculous definition didn't exist at all. And I'm not just referring to gaming. Gaming is a hobby, but it's not like all hobbies. With hobbies like fishing or golf, people who take it more seriously are warrant of some extra respect because they have useful knowledge to impart that can only come from experience. Playing video games is pure entertainment, so it just doesn't matter if you're doing for one, three, six, twelve or even more in a day, because someone who dose can't impart knowledge that will help anyone enjoy gaming any more than the already do. Not to mention how little good the "hardcore" it will do them to boast about it in the real world. I'm oversimplifying it, I know, you quite obviously can learn a hell of a lot of genuinely helpful knowledge from other gamers (otherwise forums like this would have little reason to exist), but that's in reference to stuff like tips, guides, technical troubleshooting etc. What no gamer can teach, no matter how "hardcore" they are, is how to love it more. My aforementioned examples of fishing and golf would be properly shit without knowing what your doing. At least some guidance is necessary, but in gaming how much you enjoy it is defined buy how you feel about that specific game, not gaming itself. A "movie expert" can't teach someone how to love watching movies more, if anything there more likely to ruin it, and it's the same with games. And before anyone says it, recommending games is a different thing. That's still in reference to specifics within the hobby, not advice to enjoy the hobby itself. The only time I would offer a genuine exception would be on professional gaming (e-sports), because that's a sport. Like any sport that also just happens to exist as a hobby, that is 100% competitive and being the best is all that matters. Anywhere else, the difference between "hardcore" and "casual" only exists in the insecure, self absorbed minds of the people that call themselves "hardcore". Being "hardcore" does not make anyone more, not in gaming, and anyone who thinks otherwise us no better that any arrogant little fanboy I've had the misfortune to meat over the years, a sadly frequent experience. What's the test to be a gamer? Like games. That is all.

    Gaming in prisions

    I think it should be an incentive for good behavior. I mean, everybody makes mistakes. However, I've heard at least one person saying gaming is "being too soft to prisoners". Anyway, the games they play should be monitored, or should they? For instance, would violent games increase violent behavior and/or be a mockery of the prison?
