  1. Source - CNN Amazon Luna Page So this is pretty interesting. Amazon has created their own game streaming service, where it's more like cable. You can request early access at the Amazon link above. The early access price is $5.99 a month, with unlimited hours of play, a growing library of games, and more. They also have an additional plans for Ubisoft games, but it is not selectable just yet. So maybe this will mean they will offer other gaming companies in the mix for additional prices. This could kill Google Stadia if done right. Xcloud might be a better option, considering the library, but this could potentially be better. We shall see how it plays out.
  2. Mostly Among Us and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2. I tried to play some fall guys recently but feel like I'm losing interest in it. Maybe I just need a break from it completely.
  3. Oh wow, I didn't know the new Spider-Man was coming to the PS4. That kind of defeats the purpose. Why launch a game for an older gen console when you're trying to sell a new console? Makes no sense to me. Especially with some games going to PC. I really have a feeling this generation we're not going to have to buy these upgraded machines. I think games will continue to come out for both the PS4 and Xbox One. They will just be not as pretty as the new gen consoles.
  4. Gamestop has been closing stores for quite a while now and it doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon. Recently they announced 400 or so stores will close, and I suspect even more will close by 2021. To be honest, I don't care if Gamestop closes all of their stores. Their poor practices, and poor treatment of workers will finally end. We don't need a gaming store like Gamestop anyway, there are so many mom & pop gaming stores these days, that I think they can take over where Gamestop left off. Do you care if Gamestop goes bye bye for good? Or would you like to see them survive?
  5. Check this story out here: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/tribeca-film-festival-add-video-games-official-selections This is pretty cool, video games are getting the respect they deserve, as they're now being included in official selections for the Tribeca Film Festival. It's about finding games that express artistic excellence in storytelling. What games do you think could be included? I think this is great news to the gaming world, it means more eyes on gaming, and it shows gaming isn't just for kids. Gaming is for everyone!
  6. Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'm just going to go for it and give it a try. I'm thinking I might purchase Mafia: Definitive Edition and do a full playthrough of that on Twitch. Not much for either, but I do enjoy Minecraft and know some people who are into that, so I can see myself playing that for a future stream. Fortnite is going to be a pass for me. I'm all played out on that game and I doubt I'll be checking it out again. But yeah, I want to build my twitch some more. Currently it's really bare bones, but I want to eventually get Stream Alerts figured out.

    Gaming TV

    I have an Asus 1080p HD gaming monitor that I got for work, and it works really well. I haven't had any noticeable problems with gaming, no input lag, nothing. As for gaming tv's, I don't own one, but I have a simple TCL 32 Inch 1080p, and I rarely have problems with it, but I know people say to use gaming monitors to get a better refresh rate. I've considered it, but I feel it's not really needed. Maybe when I am making more money, I will invest into an actual 4K gaming TV. I suppose it would be the perfect time with new consoles on the horizon.
  8. Nice job on the video. I wish I was a pro like that when it comes to sniping. I wasn't ever really that good with sniping in the COD franchise, especially with quick scopes. I'm a hard scoper myself lol. Keep it up, and I bet you'll end up with a ton of subs in no time. Good luck! 🙂
  9. Does anyone here like to collect video game steelbooks? I have tried to start a collection of Steelbook versions for a while now, I have some games, but the majority are still plastic cased games. A friend of mine buys exclusively steelbook versions of his games. What is your favorite steelbook so far? I think the Borderlands 3 one is quite nice.
  10. With the recent purchase of Bethesda, Microsoft may not be done just yet. According to Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella and Phil Spenser (Head of Xbox) there is a chance that Microsoft could purchase other companies/studios that share the same wants they do. It was huge when they announced they purchased Bethesda. I honestly never would have seen that one coming, but it did. Do you think Microsoft will buy up more studios? Or will they stay quiet on that front for a while? Don't count Sony out now. Many people tried to get them to purchase up Komani lol.

  11. Capcom has been re-making most of their earlier games and it got me thinking. They just did RE3, and I don't know if they have plans to remake Code Veronica or RE:Zero, but I think the real question is, do you think Capcom will do a remake of RE4? It's possibly one of their biggest titles, and I have a feeling some may not even want them to remake the game. Can a remake even work? Do you think they'll make one? Or will they maybe just remaster it? I can see Capcom doing more of these remakes, as it's easy money for them. But, I don't know if fans would want to see a remake of the beloved RE4.
  12. I think the first person was done to immerse you more into the game and make you feel like you're that character. That was their intention. Playing as an established character means that person is capable of handling the events as they unfold. Playing as an unknown tends to be creepier because you're fresh, new to the whole situation, which in turn makes it a scarier experience. At least in my opinion. But, I understand why some would want to play as already established characters, because that's Resident Evil for ya. Leon, Jill, Chris, Claire, etc are all badasses and make RE what it is. But Biohazard wasn't your traditional RE, and neither is RE 8. But not to worry, I'm sure Capcom has a remaster fro RE4 in the pipeline, so that's going to be crazy.
  13. It really depends on the game and if it's something that has a lot of replayability. Games that come to mind for me, are the GTA Series, COD series, and the Super Mario series are games I can replay often. I can invest into these games every so often. I always come back to them in some way, either it to be playing a classic game in the series, or getting the newest one out to release. I'd say the games I invested more time into, would probably be the GTA Series, mainly the likes of Vice City, San Andreas and maybe somewhat GTA IV, even though I started to feel the fatigue of playing the same thing too much. I've invested a lot of my life into the GTA series especially, same with COD, as there was a time where I would get every single release. Lately I don't do that, but I found that I've been interested in the series a lot more since they've nixed the futuristic crap for the most part and went back to what works. idk, I'm probably rambling at this point.
  14. Did you ever buy one of those gaming chairs that had the speakers built in? I think they were called like the gaming rocker or something, but I forget. It's not the ones that are like computer chairs, they were just seats you could sit on that didn't have wheels. Just a bottom you can rock back and forth on if you want. I remember they were very popular back in the 2000s or so. But now days I just see them in thrift stores and on online marketplaces for cheap. It looks something like this:
  15. With the recent news of Microsoft buying Bethesda making the rounds, it got me thinking. Do you think that Microsoft will buy up any other studios? The purchase of Bethesda is huge, but any games that have already been announced, will not be exclusive to Xbox and will release on other consoles as planned. Future games though, will likely be Xbox exclusive. Anyway, that's not what this topic is about. What other studios do you think could be bought by Microsoft? And do you think Sony is going to try to answer with their own purchases?
  16. I only remember that sex scene, I don't remember there being others. I should really replay the game soon though. And yeah, it made absolutely no sense that she would be into him after investigating him for so long. It was like Cage thought the game needed some romance and tossed it in. It wasn't needed, and it made no sense. I haven't played any of David Cage's other games, but watched a lets play for all of his games by the Super Best Friends on YouTube. They no longer make videos sadly, but they were able to play all of Cage's games. They go to town on David Cage for his poor writing and how creepy he is.
  17. I had a few of these types of games. Wasn't much of a fan of them, as each cartridge based console gets these types of games. The majority of them are likely cheaply made games with some popular games mixed in. A lot of the popular games may be hacked roms as well. Usually the total is fabricated, and the list may repeat after a while, or they start to title games like "Super Mario Bros 7,8,9,10" or "Contra 5" or random game titles. Usually they're just repeats of the same games, but hacked with different sprites and stuff. But, sometimes there are some good games among the bunch that are worth playing.
  18. Yeah I heard about this a little while ago. That's great news, because now I'm going to get some of my friends to finally play it. And I might start to stream too.
  19. I am thinking about streaming to Twitch for the first time, but I was wondering what I should start with first. I was leaning towards these games for now: Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remake - Has an online mode I can jump in, so could be fun. Fall Guys - Been playing this a lot lately, but am not any good really. I've yet to win my first match. 😞 Among Us - Been playing this with a community I volunteer for, and they've been streaming. But I don't know if I can handle the meetings you have to do after a body is found or someone is caught. Modern Warfare - I'm alright in COD, but I'm not sure I'm good enough for streaming right now. Left 4 Dead 2 - That new update is dropping this week on the 24th, so I might take advantage of that. Do you guys have any game suggestions?
  20. I remember playing a demo for Indigo Prophecy years ago, and falling in love with how unique the game was. So I purchased the game with the birthday money I had. It was more story driven, had you respond to people's questions and comments, do quick time events etc. The beginning of the game starts you off in a Diner bathroom, where you realize you just killed a person, but have no recollection of doing it. You then have to decide, clean yourself up and the area and move the body? Or leave right away covered in blood with a body in plain view? You are given a short period of time to make a decision. The game was really weird, but at the time, I enjoyed it because it was so different. More spoilers below, read at your own volition. I was probably 16 or 17 at the time I played the game. I got it, because I wanted to play something different. I'm glad I did, because I really enjoyed this games story, at the time. I watched a play through of the game a while back, and kind of cringed at it a bit. The game gets really weird after a while. What I expected to be this crime drama about finding the truth, became this weird game where wacky stuff happens, like doing quick time events to dodge flying furniture and other items in your apartment from an unknown entity. Or, being chased by giant green digital ants and having to do quick time events to evade them. Or there's also a part where you find out you're like the chosen one and have powers, and have to fight this other dude who has powers. Oh and your character is technically dead from what I recall. As well, you play as two other characters, I believe one being a female cop and the other a male cop, but I forget. They investigate the murder in the diner, and all the while, the female cop starts to fall for the protagonist. So yeah, it's a weird game.
  21. Yeah, the series got worse once the Smackdown Vs Raw series ended and it went to the WWE '12 title and then then got even worse when 2K came along. Smackdown Vs. Raw 2011 I think was the last game that was moderately good. I hear it goes for a lot of money, as I've been trying to buy it on 360. But yeah, 2K made the series into a mess. And when Yukes left (I think it was them), they left 2K and their NBA studio to finish 2K20. That's why it was such a disaster of a game. Battlegrounds looked interesting at first, but when it finally released, it didn't live up to any bit of the hype it seems. It got some good reviews, but people are claiming it's pretty mediocre. I'm just excited to see what Yukes does now that they're free from the WWE franchise. Maybe they can work on an AEW game, or even a wrestling game that combines many companies, minus WWE of course. I'd like to see a good WWE game again though, so hopefully a good studio jumps in to make them.
  22. And you have to consider Bethesda's recent track record with many issues, mostly with from Fallout 76 and its many blunders. But, I can see this working to Microsoft's Advantage. The selling point for the Xbox Series X is not exclusives, but backwards compatibility and game pass. It, to my knowledge, will play every Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One game, in upgraded resolutions and other fixes. This is huge, because it means we all have a library full of games already at our disposal. Xbox SX isn't going to be about exclusives right away, it's going to be the library. Expect used game sales to rise for Xbox titles. And Game Pass Ultimate. This means all of these games will be added to Game Pass, if they haven't been already. Game Pass Ultimate is only $14.99 a month. That gets you XBL for the month, game pass across Xbox & PC, EA Access or whatever it's called, and on top of that, free games every month. As well, we may see original exclusives for free on Gamepass once backwards compatibility is fully supported. Bethesda games may take a while, but like I said, exclusives are not the selling point for Xbox, and they have even stated that recently. I believe Xbox knows what they have, and they're just biding their time.
  23. I suppose I could see them. I would actually see them getting into peripherals instead. I don't see them making a console. I can see Amazon, and maybe Google trying their hand yet again. Are you implying Pepsi could make a console? 😄 Unless your'e just referring to the Pepsiman video game that came out because it was random Pepsi had a game? But could you imagine them trying to make a console. What do you think they'd call it?
  24. Some PC games out there can be very intensive on some PCs. Depending on if you have a good graphics card or not. Have you ever had a game so powerful, that it destroyed your PC in the process? Maybe you played the game too long, or your PC could never handle it to begin with. Has this ever happened to you? I do worry about it, but I feel as long as I take care of my PC it'll be fine.
  25. There have been some new photos released for the upcoming PlayStation 5, that gives gamers an idea of what they can expect from the new console coming this November 12th. I am not a big fan of the design, but it looks like it can at least be set horizontal. I thought it was going to be able to stand it up vertical only. Anyway, check out the photos here. What are your thoughts on the design? Seeing more of it really does remind me of an old router or something. https://twistedvoxel.com/ps5-console-images-base-accessories/
