    @DylanC @The Blackangel @Alyxx, made a mistake here, this is actually the $100 version of the game, not the $60!!! Get your bids in!

    CRTs

    These things are the best! I've tried using the Framemeister, and while it does help, nothing beats a good, old-fashioned CRT. A newer flatscreen is quite simply not an option for the Genesis or N64. I remember being at Best Buy in 2005 maxing out my credit card to get my hands on the HD TVs that were all the rage. Fast forward 14 years, and I'm combing Craigslist to find an old CRT. They're just so much better for classic gaming!

    SJW Meddling in Gaming

    This is a very sensitive topic, but I feel personally that it's wrong to say that people wanting non-binary gender choices in games and more female heroes is due to SJW's. I feel it's progressive and shows that gaming is maturing enough to appeal to everyone. And developers and publishers do have to take into consideration all feedback they receive (to a degree) so that includes groups who are very vocal about cultural representation in gaming.

    Anyone else skateboard?

    I was never into skateboarding, but I was a pro-am snowboarder. I competed in several competitions. I usually did pretty well, and the guys competing were always super cool to each other. I was the only girl, but that didn't really matter to anyone. One guy tried to pick me up once, but I was spoken for at the time.

    Best Batman Arkham Game

    As a massive fan of the Batman Arkham series, this has to be one of the few superhero games that I can say is comparable to some of the best games ever released. The story is amazing (no surprise there, I mean it's about Batman), The gameplay is very fluid and is challenging ( A lot of superhero games usually mess up in the gameplay department but the Arkham series does a very good job of letting you feel like Batman) and the mini-games are pretty interesting and unique. My favorite pick for the best of the entire series has to go to Arkham city, just because of the gameplay features (driving the Batmobile and swinging and gliding throughout the city gives the purest form of the Batman experience and the story was very gripping from start to finish. Which Arkham game is your favorite and why?

    I used to do this during exam period when I was "supposed to concentrate only on studying". Otherwise, I never had to really because i did my homework or any other assignment at school before I got home so I could play games at all evening.

    I miss the early 2000s

    I wouldn’t call it colorful. Bleak would be more appropriate. When you’re homeless and doing all the drugs you can get your hands on, there’s not a lot of color.

    Best Batman Arkham Game

    Arkham city is the best one, Arkham asylum is good and introduce us to the game mechanics but the finale was shit. Arkham Knight was okay I guess, not bad but not memorable except for the Batmobile, and I feel like Arkham city has more like a comic book vibe and Arkham knight feels like a movie adaptation.

    Mexican to the core! 🤣 Most of the Mexicans that I know get wasted at every opportunity possible. I have a Mexican friend living in my country that has wracked up 3 DUIs. He's lucky that the justice system here is so bloody incompetent because he'd be in jail for a couple of years.

    I'm saying that they may have different multiplayer game modes - Co-op falls under multiplayer but isn't the only multiplayer game mode and with a game like this, there could be multiple other ones apart from Co-op.

    I began my second playthrough of BioShock Infinite last night, and it ended up making me think a lot about immersiveness in video games. I was both looking forward to it and dreading it for around a year now. It’s rare for the second time through with something to have the same magic as the first time, since there are fewer surprises. So I was surprised to find that the game has much the same effect on me so far this time. I have the same sense I did before of being transported from my mundane life, and really being in this other place and time, immersed in this different atmosphere. The sense of place there remains unique. Having played BioShock 1 and 2 now, I have to say those are also very atmospheric games—but not quite on the same level for me. And now I think I can list factors which play into why BioShock Infinite seems to have this uniquely immersive pull on me: It’s in first person. Third-person is too detached and limiting, which is why this game beats TLOU for immersion to me—even though TLOU is very immersive. You have time to stop and look around, and are in fact encouraged to do so. BioShocks 1 and 2 spawn too many continuous enemies to do this conveniently. The soundtracking is often minimal, with the ambient sounds of the city in the foreground. This is more like “real life” than continuous soundtracking. There are often things going on in your environment, many of them unique events. These are timed with your movements so that they seem spontaneous, both drawing you forward and encouraging you to stop and pause and pay attention. In short, the game is paced for you to explore and savour. This is entirely subjective, but I find Booker very easy to relate to. We have a lot of the same reactions to what we see, so it is easy to be immersed both in the world and in his mind. From your experiences gaming, what factors do you think help make a game immersive to the point where you truly feel like you’ve left the room and travelled to the game world? @DylanC @killamch89 @kingpotato @The Blackangel @Alyxx @Aerielle del Rosario @Executor Akamia @skyfire

    All of us have been through some pretty crazy encounters that have created a lasting memory. For instance, back in 2014, I came face to face with a 700 lb tiger at Zoo Miami when one of the caretakers accidentally left one of the tiger's enclosure open and he naturally took advantage of it. I was walking a bit ahead of my brother when we spotted the tiger and vice versa - I told my brother to back away slowly as the tiger approached me. I had learned from my many encounters running into stray/wild animals to keep absolutely calm and the most incredible thing happened - He started sniffed for about a minute and then yawned and fell asleep on my foot. I didn't want to make any sudden moves because it could have startled him. Luckily, the staff had realized the tiger had been missing and had already been on the lookout for him so one of them showed up with a tranquilizer. They successfully tranquilized him and then 3 others came to help get his heavy head off my foot. They strapped him up to some kind of pulley and put him in the back of a small truck and carried him back to his area. Somehow, throughout the whole ordeal, I was for the most part pretty calm about everything and I even had a laugh with some of the staff afterwards. I also learned that the caretaker who forgot to lock his area had fed him during that time so he wasn't hungry at all so that may have also contributed to his non-aggressive behavior towards me. It was a crazy encounter for sure! What are the craziest encounters you've ever had?

    If I had been able to think at the time instead of scared almost to the point of pissing myself, I probably would have. I actually intended to shoot him in the body, but squeezed the trigger too soon. When he dropped that was all I needed to get myself the hell out of there. That was a .380 that I shot him with. Now I carry a .45 loaded with hollow points. I’m not fucking around. If this kind of shit happens again, I’ll most likely be facing manslaughter charges. But I don’t care. If I get you in the leg, I will then walk up to you and get you in the head.

    Being forced into carrying on a mile long conversation with NPC's drives me insane. Also there's a special trick that FF8 likes as part of the story. When Ellone jumps you back into Laguna's era. I don't give a shit what Laguna was doing 17 years ago. I got shit to take care of in the present. Fuck Laguna. He's the president of Esthar now. Ok. Good for him. Now back to kicking someone's ass, getting that last fucking GF, then heading to cactuar island to learn abilities quickly.

    Danielle Bregoli is a disgrace to women. She is the kind of slut that makes us all look bad. Danielle- Ok I assume you want to be taken as a woman. But you're a brainless child. And before you can be taken as any kind of woman, you need to know a few things. 1) Speak English. "Cassh me ousside how bou dah" is not English. Even though the USA doesn't technically have an official language, English is the language the majority of the country has agreed on. Ebonics hasn't been taught since the 1990's. That's more than 20 years. Catch up 2) Unless you're going for a Guinness world record, 4" nails aren't smart. Cut your fucking nails kid. They're not practical, they look stupid, and they're a hinderance. Hinderance means they will make simple things like opening a soda can hard as hell for you. 3) I assume you're trying to come across as a female. You could be a pretty girl if you wanted. But you choose to try to be a rough boy. Unless you're transgender, be a fucking girl. You were born with a vagina (i assume). Be a girl. Being transgender is not a crime, and is perfectly fine. There is nothing wrong with that. 4) The tit job was not a good move. Your breasts weren't even done growing on their own naturally. What the hell were you thinking? You don't need plastic tits. 5) If you want a musical career, you should first have talent. You have none. You think you're rap, but you've been leaving the first actual letter off the name of your personal style of music. That letter would be a C. Real rap is good music. The C-rap you're spewing out is not music. It's pathetic. 6) As a final note, I assume that your problems are because you're an ignorant child that is actually coming across as completely stupid. Back up. Grow up.

    It is happening in many context indeed. And the thing is that when the pure massacre will happen things are going to be in the wrong outcome.

    Similar to Alyxx above, I have all my physical copies in stacks on a shelf. I really like having them in their original cases as I quite like the artwork and looking at the names on the side of the boxes.

    I don’t do social media with the exception of YouTube and a few pics on instagram. I’m a YouTube addict, and most of the time I completely forget that I even have an instagram. So there’s nothing I can do about retweet’s. But I’m interested in the YouTube videos.

    My favorite comment on the video on Youtube: "Yeah, see, I see that you chainsawed that man in half, but it didn’t feel like you MEANT it" They really missed a lot of small details that made the early games great, Gears 5 looks beautiful, but its the small details that make a game the best.

    Hunting animals good or bad ?

    Animal testing should totally be banned. However, the remark on the wilderness is a bit of hypocrisy - cause you're just asking others to kill for you (grocery store consumer) - assuming you're not vegetarian.

    Global warming and the new green deal

    Well, green stuff is a good thing - but it sets back jobs and costs more money. Well, the only way green stuff could gain real power - with conservatives in control (as in the USA) - is if people chose - as consumers - to go green - but fat chance of that!

    I think weathers affecting terrain would be welcome change. It's like map making things open or chaotic would be a nice change to see.

    I miss the early 2000s

    All I know about the early 2000’s is I lived in an abandoned warehouse with a colony of rats, and I was doing drugs. Virtually everything.
