  1. 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

  2. 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

  6. 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.

  7. I noticed that @DylanC posted a topic "Games you love that no-one else likes" (LINK). But as far as I can tell, there was no thread for the opposite. Since every Ying needs a Yang I decided to start it myself. So here it is, a thread to bash the games that everyone seems to love that you can't stand. That particular game gets a bunch of praise from your fellow gamers and/or a ton of awards from critics and you can't figure out why. The games or genres that your friends are all playing that you can't get into. Maybe even an upcoming release that has everyone hyped, but your not

  10. 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.

  20. 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

  21. 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

  22. 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

  25. "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.

  27. 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

  28. Gaming these days is full of loot boxes and micro-transactions. It seems most games need them these days, and I don't understand why. The whole point of games, is to unlock stuff, and gain more stuff as you go along. Yeah some games may still do this, but I hate it when loot boxes and micro-transactions are needed to get anywhere in game. Sometimes games force you to grind and grind just to get to a point, but you can pay $1 or more to increase your stats, or a "gold" lootbox with a possible chance of getting a special item. It's gambling as well when it comes down to it. What do you guy

  31. And all I did here was copy the link to the YouTube video and it worked fine. (I just chose a random video) You can also edit posts, but only within 10 minutes of posting them (EDIT: like I just did to add the image below). I don't mean to speak for @DC, but I suspect this is a security protocol to stop altering evidence of wrongdoing on the forum. I agree it's annoying that after those 10 minutes, there's no going back, but it is what it is. You did mention in an earlier post that the forum could use a spoiler code and on that I definitely

  32. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/ps5-specs-revealed/1100-6474902/ As part of Sony's big PlayStation 5 information blowout during a GDC livestream, the company officially announced the specs for the next-generation console. In short, it's a very powerful machine. PlayStation system architect Mark Cerny is discussing the PS5 hardware as we speak, but during the stream, Digital Foundry published a feature revealing the system's specs. Its CPU features 8 Zen 2 cores, and its GPU--using custom RDNA 2 architecture--offers 10.28 TFLOPs of power. It comes with 16 GB of memory and an 825 GB

  33. Remaking an old game is both a huge compliment and a biting insult. On one hand, you’re saying that this game is a beloved classic, and we need to devote resources toward recreating its brilliance for a modern audience. But then again, you’re also saying that this game doesn’t hold up to today’s standards, and it needs an update to remain relevant. Whether it’s simply a cosmetic makeover (like most HD remasters), or a ground-up overhaul that changes the game’s design (like Resident Evil 2 and 3’s remakes), the message is clear: these remakes are meant to replace the originals. That’

  37. You have conclusively proved (at least in part) the proplem with everyone who uses that pathetic hashtag. They are some of the bias, ignorant and arrogant fanboys on the internet and see their shite everywhere. The are abusuve, insulting and constantly lie through their teeth about PC and consoles in attempts to prove their absolute nonsense. Not to mention the "joke" is a parody of a fascist regime responsible for the deaths of millions.

    Spam Thread

    We’re getting a lot of people coming in and spamming the forums trying to promote their YouTube channel, or some game they’re working on or some other bullshit. So the idea hit me to start a thread specifically for spammers to have a place to post whatever, so that everyone doesn’t have to weed through it to find the worthwhile posts and threads.

  39. What is your problem? Since I doubt that someone has strapped you to a chair and forced to watch the LGBT friendly content on Netflix "A Clockwork Orange" style, what is the point of this unceasing complaining about it? Netflix's content has nothing to do with the topic at hand anyway and none of us agree with nor give a shit about your homophobic ranting. You've clearly never played the game and most likely never will, something that's probably true of the sequel as well, so you've got noting of value to bring to this topic in the first place.

  43. There is a Hexen II, but it’s all but impossible to find. I haven’t found it anywhere, including online in more than 20 years. I’ve tried calling classic game dealers all around the state and in bordering states. No luck. I’m 10 hours from Chicago and I struck out at every place I called there. I was willing to make the drive to buy it, or pay a hefty sum to get it shipped. I’m thinking of checking out places in LA and NY. Those are most likely my best options considering the size of the cities.

  44. A great example I can think of is the "My Pet Dungeon" mode from Dungeon Keeper 2. At your own pase, without risk of attack, make the perfect dungeon within the games mechanics. No challenge? Wrong. You have to unlock the privileges with some challenges that lock certain privileges behind paywal... wait, no, doing stuff in game . I know that's mad these days. War of the Overworld, the spiritual successor to Dungeon Keeper, also has this game mode. Buy it. Play it. But also, pay for it. It wouldn't be right if I didn't point out this feature is a paid DLC, but I swear this game is worth it

The mission where I deployed the Marauder in my lance had a damn HBK-4P Hunchback among the opposing force. Hunchbacks are notoriously tough among medium 'Mechs, able to hold their own against assault 'Mechs in a straight fight.

There’s a seller on eBay that I tend to stick with when it comes to games. nes_headquarters I know it says NES at the beginning, but they have a lot more than just classic games. And if they don’t, they’re willing to recommend a seller that would. The only downside is that if it’s something that’s coming from overseas, you need to give it a couple months to arrive. I bought a couple PS Pockets from Japan earlier this year, and it took a little over 2 months to get. Customs is a bitch. But
