  1. A new Marvel game was revealed during Epic Games Unreal Showcase at GDC and it's being helmed by Amy Hennig's studio Skydance New Media. It will be called Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra, and will be set during WWII in occupied Paris. You can play up to four players, those being: Captain America, T'Challa's grandfather Azzuri (the Black Panther of that era), US soldier and Howling Commandos member Gabriel Jones and Wakandan spy Nanali. Check out the reveal trailer below.
  2. Anyone here played Roboquest? It's a FPS with roguelike elements, where the intent is to play solo or with someone else to take on hordes of enemies in randomly generated environments. It reminds me a lot of Doom for its fast paced gameplay. It's been out since last year, and has gotten rave reviews since release. Some have compared it to games like Borderlands. Steam page - https://store.steampowered.com/app/692890/Roboquest/ It's also available for PC via Steam and GOG, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
  3. I've never played Snatcher as I never had a PC to play it, and never got to play it on the Sega CD either. From what I can see, there's not many places that have the game available for sale, actually non that I can tell. It doesn't look to be available on any modern consoles or even on PC. I could emulate it I suppose, but I wouldn't mind adding a copy of the game to my collection too. What is the best way to play Snatcher? Via PC or Sega CD? Or is emulation really the only option right now? Might be time to do a re-release for modern consoles and PC you think? Also, who here has played Snatcher, is it as good as people say?
  4. This is just a rumor for now, but we are getting closer and closer to a new Xbox console, so the idea that some countries are getting devkits isn't far from reality. If a new console is coming, this could signal that an announcement could be coming soon as well. The rumors are that some South Korean developers are testing out the new devkits for an upcoming Xbox console. It could also be a rumored handheld console that some allege Xbox is interested in making. What I hope it's not, is a new version of the Series X|S and is actual news of a new Xbox console. Even if it's a handheld, I think it'd be great to know more. A user on X first brought up the news, as they found a certification granted by Xbox themselves, and it's also said the certificate mentions a device name being XDK Console, which comes out to be Xbox Development Kit. Now, this could just be a group asking for a new devkit for current Xbox consoles for all we know, but I wonder if it could actually be the next console. If so, I assume other devs have the devkit, but just haven't revealed those details yet like that X user did.

  5. I don't frequently play golf style games, but when I do, I usually tend to go for the fun, obscure, party style games. Like Golf with your friends for example, which doesn't take golf too seriously and is just a quick and fun game to play with a group of friends. But I found What The Golf? recently and it seems to be a completely different golf game. Instead of a standard golf game, this game is more of a mixed bag of obscure and fun puzzles and game modes that feature some aspects of golfing, but I wouldn't call this a golf game. Some modes are like golf style games, but the trailer shows driving segments and other random game modes mixed in. So has anyone played this? Is it worth checking out? https://store.steampowered.com/app/785790/WHAT_THE_GOLF/
  6. Found from - https://wealthofgeeks.com/most-offensive-video-games/ The article above discusses 24 video games that would never cut it today. There's a lot of games from Hatred, Custer's Revenge, The Guy Game, JFK Reloaded, and stuff like Super Columbine Massacre RPG that makes sense. Out of this list, what games would you say would never see the light of day again? Surprisingly there is no mention of Manhunt or its sequel, which I figure would easily be a top contender for this list. I forgot in Left 4 Dead 2 it got some heat for having a New Orleans level not too soon after Hurricane Katrina. The list also mentioned Modern Warfare 2's No Russian mission, which saw you mass murdering people at an airport. Anyway, do you agree with the list above? What games would you take out of this list and what ones would you add in? Still surprises me Manhunt 1 or 2 isn't included. I would have expected that over a lot of the games mentioned.
  7. Has anyone played Desolatium? Is it worth checking out? For those wondering, it's a first-person graphic adventure game that's heavily based around Lovecraft mythos. It looks like a more modern point and click adventure game to me. I really like the mix of modern and comic-book style graphics though. It's available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and the Switch. More on the game: https://desolatium.com/
  8. This is kind of crazy, but I guess there is an exploit in Apex Legends that recently has resulted in two pro players being hacked during a gaming tournament. The pro players who were targeted, received wall hacks and aim assist hacks mid-match. Most would think that the players were using these hacks intentionally and accidentally made it known, but video proof of the incident shows the hacker group posting a message announcing the hack in game. Supposedly the hackers found an exploit somewhere, some say the anti cheat system used in the game, and were able to remotely take access of these players computers installing and using said hacker tools. No joke, it's alleged that it's the way the anti-cheat works. You can watch a video of one of the targeted players: It got so bad, that Apex Legends has postponed the North America finals for its Global Series championship. Not a good look for EA right now.

  9. Source - https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/other/sony-has-reportedly-halted-psvr-2-production-until-its-current-backlog-is-sold/ar-BB1k5t6N Looks like the new PSVR 2 from PlayStation isn't selling so well since its release back in February of 2023. Each month that has gone by the amount of units sold has been dropping. Q4 or 2023, Sony only sold 325,000 units of the PSVR 2. Not a good sign when the Meta Quest 3 sold 1.3M units during their Q4 of 2023. It doesn't help any when they chose not to make any of the first PSVR's games backwards compatible, as another problem is the limited amount of games on the new headset. So, Sony is not producing more product until this backlog is sold off. Maybe this could mean a price drop is coming soon. There is also rumors of them supporting PC as well, so if and when that happens, I expect more people to hop on then.
  10. What are some good or even great games that had a horrible ending? There are a couple for me, the big one is probably Assassin's Creed III. I really enjoyed the game, most of the story and the setting, but the ending felt rushed and it was boring. For those wondering, you can read it below: Spoilers below: You chase down your father in a burning ship, which ends with a cutscene where you take his life if I remember correctly. After that I think it's mostly cutscenes and going to a location as Desmond. But to build things up, and end it like that, I thought was a disappointment. I wanted to actually battle it out in the end, but it just felt like a chase to the scene. Another game I like, but didn't like the ending, was GTA IV. Another where I thought the ending felt rushed, and didn't really give much of a payoff in the end. What are some good games that had a bad ending? I know Mass Effect 3 will probably be mentioned.
  11. Remember those tiger electronic's handheld systems you could get in the 90s, they were cheap LCD style games that were a static screen with moving sprites and graphics. I had a few growing up, but I wasn't a big fan of them. I always thought they were kind of boring growing up, but to be fair I was already playing NES, Genesis and other consoles around this time, so these handhelds weren't a big thing with me. I had a power rangers themed one, a godzilla themed one and a few others. What were your favorite ones growing up? I've had nostalgia for them recently and have been looking around for used ones at thrift stores. Do you have any in your gaming collection? Do you still boot them up to see if they still work like they did new?
  12. Sonic Unleashed came out after Sonic 06, and from what I remember, it didn't do much of anything to improve upon that game and what came before it. I just remember playing this one and thinking it was a waste of time than anything. It was just one of those game that was mostly forgettable, and yet it happened. Are there any who like the game? It was a lot better than Sonic 06, but that's honestly not saying much with how awful that game was and how mediocre this one was. How do you think this game compares to the newer titles? I don't think it comes close in quality and gameplay, but I think it's playable enough.
  13. Check out the trailer below for the 2.5D upcoming horror/puzzle platformer launching on March 28th. It will come out for Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. I'm getting some huge Inside/Limbo vibes from the gameplay. It looks like it'd be fun, so I might check it out when it releases later this month.
  14. I'm so glad there is a hall of fame for video games. This years finalists have been set aside, and you can view some of them below: Asteroids (1979) Elite (1984) Guitar Hero (2005) Metroid (1986) Myst (1993) Neopets (1999) Resident Evil (1996) The rest of the finalists can be viewed here - https://www.msn.com/en-us/entertainment/gaming/see-the-2024-finalists-for-the-world-video-game-hall-of-fame/ss-BB1jU9OG#image=1 Only three of the finalists will be picked, and the public can vote on them. The final inductees will be revealed on Thursday, May 9th. As well, you can see the full list of games inducted since 2015 here - https://www.museumofplay.org/exhibits/world-video-game-hall-of-fame/inducted-games/
  15. Wow it's almost been 20 years since Far Cry first released. The game originally released on March 23rd 2004, and next week in celebration of those 20 years, Ubisoft will be doing a live stream celebration with devs to share stories and memorable moments from the many games in the series. Sadly, there will be no details on future Far Cry games, no reveals. Maybe we could get a surprise reveal, but I doubt it. More on this news here - https://comicbook.com/gaming/news/far-cry-20th-anniversary-ubisoft/
  16. Story here - https://www.psu.com/news/saber-interactive-sale-has-been-officially-confirmed-by-embracer-group/ It sounds like this may be good news, at least for Saber Interactive. It is being reported that Embracer group have decided to sell off Saber Interactive to a group of private investors at Beacon Interactive. The company is relatively new, but looks to be started by Matthew Karch, who is the co-founder of Saber Interactive. So it sounds like he's making an attempt to bring the studio back into his control. The studio was sold for $247 million and it includes these studios: Nimble Giant, 3D Realms, Sandbox Strategies, New World Interactive, and Slippage Ironworks. Sadly, it looks like Embracer will be keeping some of the studios, those being; Zen Studios, 4A Games, Tripwire, Beamdog, and Tuxedo Labs along with others not mentioned in the article.
  17. This looks really cool. Winter Survival is a new survival adventure game that released in early access on steam recently. DRAGO Entertainment is behind this one, they're the team who were responsible for Gas Station Simulator. This seems to be their most ambitious title yet. You have to survive a cold wilderness before rescue arrives, and in the process you must deal with dangers like wolves and bears. It's in early access now, and can be purchased from steam here - https://store.steampowered.com/app/1394960/Winter_Survival/
  18. Would you ever buy peripherals from shopping sites like Temu, Wish, and aliexpress? I have purchased stuff from other sites like Dealextreme, which sells a lot of cheap stuff made in china, got a 360 controller, battery chargers, and a gaming headset on there for super cheap. I've yet to purchase anything from Temu, Wish or other similar sites. Hell, I'd say Amazon is becoming a sort of Temu/Wish site with the amount of fake/cheap junk they allow for sale on there. Have you ever found good products from these sites? Or do you usually skip them? I thought the knockoff 360 headset they sold had better sound quality than Xbox OEM ones did. At least the ones I got from Dealextreme back in the day.
  19. Are there any other games similar to Papers, Please? I haven't played much of the game, but from what I did play I have enjoyed it. Are there any other games similar in gameplay? Where you have to verify the person you're letting in is who they say they are. I think there was another game where you had to check cars coming in, and had to check over their license and other info and verify it with info you have. I forgot what that was called though. So yeah, any games like Papers, Please?
  20. This is cool, Konami is re-releasing Felix the Cat for the Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS4 on March 28th. The game will be a package deal as it will have the NES and Gameboy versions. I don't recall ever playing either game growing up, but I assume it was a fairly good game. I might have emulated it years ago, but I forget. It looks like it'd be fun though, so I might have to check it out. Not sure I agree with the $24.99 price tag. I would think $15 is a better deal, it doesn't look like they updated the graphics or anything, it's just a re-release of a retro game. Konami has a page dedicated to the game here as well - https://www.konami.com/games/felixthecat/about-the-game
  21. I know there are mods you can do to older consoles to make them play on HDTVs, but I'd rather not go that route as I don't like to modify my consoles. I found an adapter for the Xbox called the XBHD from a company called Eon Gaming. It's a plug-in adapter that connects to your original Xbox's video connection. So no hacking or modding needed. It also has ethernet capabilities, so you can probably take it online with this. You can get one here - https://www.eongaming.tech/product-page/xbhd-1 It's expensive though at $149.99. But if you want to play it on an HDTV, it looks to be the better alternative to modding. They also have an N64, and a few GameCube versions, which put out 480p, but expensive at around $159.99 each. Do you guys know of any others, maybe cheaper alternatives? Ones for a PS2, PS1, NES, and pretty much any retro console out there. Most newer HDTVs don't come with the usual connections, often just supporting HDMI. I think some TVs even skip out on component connections. I know you can buy component cables for the PS2, and I think Xbox as well, but I think they're hard to come by last time I checked. At least nothing too cheap. I see a lot of cheap stuff on Amazon that I'm unsure I'd trust. Do you have any suggestions for adapters to play NES, SNES, N64, PS2, Xbox, and any other retro consoles on HD without the needs for modding?
  22. I was going to help build a friends PC, but I'm too paranoid I will cause damage, so I asking him to instead build one himself or buy a pre-built. I know most people will say to build your own PC, and I would recommend that too, but I don't want to end up breaking a PC in the process. So, he wants to go the pre-built route. What is the best site to go for pre-builts? Ones that will build the PCs for you, and it may cost a bit extra in doing so. What sites would you suggest? Or what stores?
  23. Check out 23 minutes of gameplay for the upcoming military shooter Gray Zone Warfare. It's made by Madfinger Games and is planned for a release sometime this year. It looks to be a more serious military shooter, where you need to work together with your team to achieve the objective. The world in the video looks huge too. Check it out on steam - https://store.steampowered.com/app/2479810/Gray_Zone_Warfare/ It looks like it'll release in early access as well.
  24. This looks interesting, I hope you can control time like they show in the cinematic trailer below. They say it's an interactive noir that is set in a dystopian New York City in the year 2329. And I guess immortality is possible too. You play as a detective trying to find a serial killer. It sounds really interesting, so I'm hoping to see a gameplay trailer at some point. It will release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2024 sometime. More on the game and its story can be viewed here - https://www.thexboxhub.com/nobody-wants-to-die-will-explore-immortality-and-transhumanism-later-in-2024/
  25. The Top Spin series hasn't had a new game since 2011's Top Spin 4, which released all the way back in 2011. But, now it looks like the series is making a comeback with Top Spin 2K25, IGN did a hands on with the upcoming game, and it looks pretty decent. Though the character faces look a bit dated, I doubt that will matter when you're in a heated match. Check out the article here - https://www.ign.com/articles/top-spin-2k25-hands-on-preview-the-great-tennis-sim-returns
