  1. The PlayStation Classic came out a couple years ago by now, and it didn't go over too well. The emulation was mediocre, and a lot of the ISOs on the system were the PAL version and not the US version, which caused issues with some games. Some people were able to modify the device to add other games, which is probably a more appealing idea. Anyway, this is not about the PS classic. But, about a possible future PS2 classic. Do you think Sony will try their hand at another classic console? I think it would be cool if they released a PS2 classic, but I imagine it would be a pricey one, considering how big games are on the PS2. I could easily see a PS2 classic going for like $100 or more. What do you guys think?
  2. Article Source - Forbes Video games and consoles are selling like crazy, and it's all thanks to the pandemic. With more people home, and some collecting unemployment, people are buying more games then ever. Supposedly the gaming industry made $11.6 billion between April and June of this year. That's crazy! Have you found yourself buying more games as of late? Or have you maybe even slowed down?
  3. I can't believe no one made a topic about this yet. Who's getting Watch Dogs: Legion when it comes out? It's for sure a day one buy for me, as I really loved Watch Dogs 2. I didn't care for the first game though, but then again, I didn't give it much of a chance. Anyway, the new change I like about this one, is that you can play as multiple people. You can recruit people all over the in game world, and you can play as them. So essentially you can play as nearly everyone in the game. I believe they still have perma-death, but it's now a toggle option. So if you turn perma-death off, and your character dies, they will instead be put on a cool down and be sent to a hospital. But with perma-death, that person is gone for good. Will you play with it on or off? Here's a little taste of the game in action:
  4. I'd include Epic Games in that list as well, as it's starting to gain popularity. Helps when they release a ton of free games fairly often. Oh, and Amazon Games is a thing. Got a bunch of games through Twitch prime through Amazon Games, and I haven't downloaded anything yet. But yeah, I prefer going the route of digital, just easier to deal with. Physical with PC is kind of pointless these days anyway, because it's to the point that some games aren't even coming with discs, just a slip inside a game box.
  5. They don't care, that's the issue. The publishers are forcing devs to make a deadline, and in turn they produce a game not fully complete, so we see the addition of loot boxes and micro-transactions to keep the game going as long as possible. In reality, I wish most studios were like CD Project Red, who made The Witcher 3. When they make a game, they make sure it's finished or as finished as it can be. And if they do actual DLC, they release big DLC at fair prices. I'll be honest, I'm okay with micro-transactions. My only issue is when those micro-transactions can be used to get ahead of the game.
  6. Originally the arcades and then consoles I think. I know it was available for the SNES and Sega Genesis back then. I don't recall an NBA Slam though. SSX Tricky is my favorite snowboarding game. I also get into the Tony Hawk Games and anything relating to skateboarding. Anything revolving around extreme sports is usually fun. 😄
  7. I've used Power A on Xbox One, and the controller lasted me a long time. The only downside I could find is that they often are just wired controllers and don't have the greatest analog sticks. Mine started to peel and fall apart from the plastic. But, I got an $80 pro controller from them and the build quality for that is fantastic. I'm not sure on the gamecube Switch controllers, but the reviews mostly paint a good picture for them. With any third party controllers though, there are bound to be some problems. I find Power A to be a good budget controller brand. I'm pretty sure if you want to get an better brand gamecub controller, it might be double in price.
  8. 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 guys think? I'm not a fan of them. If it's just for cosmetics purposes, sure whatever, but if it gives people an edge in the game, I don't agree with it. Maybe single player only for that at the very least.
  9. Do you have the original NES console? The one with the slot loading and the little door on the top. Or, do you own the top loader? I currently own the original NES, but have wanted to own a top loader NES for years now. I hear they're more reliable than the original NES and are cooler looking to some extent. Which one do you own? Or, do you own both?
  10. It seems cheating in esports happens fairly often. Some who use blatant cheats, while others may screen peek or use a glitch to their advantage. But, it's oh so nice when the cheaters get caught. Here's a video from a few months ago about people caught cheating in esports. Check it.
  11. So, for those who don't know, Suicide Squad was announced recently via Rocksteady's twitter account above. 👆 But, if you can see, the image shows Superman, which confirms he will play a part in the game. I wonder how the game is going to play out.
  12. Yeah, I want to try VR. I can totally see VR help with dreaming. It would make sense since it puts you into it, and it feels more real.
  13. I don't think they have plans to do a remake, if anything, they'd make a completely new game in the series, or start fresh with an outright reboot. Now that I think of it, Konami has plans for new Silent Hill games, so, maybe we're going to get a remake for the first 3 games. Kind of like how Capcom did with remaking Resident Evil 1-3. Konami would be crazy not to jump on the bandwagon and produce an updated remake of the first 3 games. I'd buy that. Plus, they kind of screwed fans over with their original HD edition as it was a mess of a game, and was never patched on the xbox 360. The PS3 version got a patch, but it still had tons of problems from what I heard.
  14. I like to play Madden NFL, NBA 2K, WWE 2K, motocross games, skate boarding games, etc. I also live the arcadey sports games, like NBA Jam and NFL Blitz, also including NBA Street/NFL Street. 😄
  15. Yeah pretty much. Though they will also show the story in full, so all cut-scenes will be played. I like to watch a mix of commentary and no commentary. I only watch games I plan to never play, or wish to play and can't. And I'll sometimes watch them to help me through certain levels.
  16. Yeah, mostly referring to wearing out over time. 🙂 I figure most of us would have had the problem. My copy of GTA San Andreas is near death, but it still runs like a champ.
  17. Yeah, I feel like more people are going digital these days. The last game I purchased physically was probably GTA V on the Xbox One. I am getting Cyperpunk 2079 physical though for sure. Already got it pre-ordered. Just waiting for November to come. 😄
  18. I don't recall ever dreaming about a game, but there were times when I would think about the game while trying to go to bed. And for some reason, it would often keep me up, like it was calling me to play lol. I remember doing that with the jungle book game, the Lion King, and many other games I played often as a kid/teen. Would be cool to dream a video game, or I'm in one even. 🙂
  19. That looks like a Yahoo games lobby from back then. I never played yahoo towers though. I mostly focused my time on Yahoo pool and checkers. I got a pretty decent win loss ratio in checkers back then.
  20. Silent Hill doesn't have a great track record. The first 3 games are considered the best of the bunch, with 4 the room, being up there as well. But ever since there hasn't really been a fitting Silent Hill game, unless you want to count shattered memories on the Wii, which I hear is actually quite good. The rest were particularly mediocre. But, can a new Silent Hill game actually be good? I want to see Silent Hill come back, but I have my doubts about Konami and whether or not they can actually do games right again.
  21. This guy mixes GTA, Metal Gear Solid and Yakuza gameplay into a video and it looks so much like the games lol. He even moves the way the character does in game, like he'll run into a wall and keep walking, it's great. I suggest turning on subtitles.
  22. Source: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/trump-banned-tiktok-and-wechat-are-video-games-next/ar-BB17I1Zl So it looks like Trump was true to his word, he banned TikTok and WeChat. This is a very scary situation, in that this could mean other sites/apps/programs could be banned at the presidents discretion. And I understand the reason it was banned is because they're apps based in China. TikTok has been in the news for privacy concerns, and it's true to worry about that app. But I don't know if anyone should be able to ban an app. This isn't about tiktok and we chat though. This concerns video games. With this recent ban, could video games be next on the list? Since Chinese company Tencent owns a stake in many popular companies and games (Fortnite, league of legends, Epic Games, Ubisoft, activision, blizzard, etc). This could mean that games from those companies, potentially could be included in a ban. The article is an interesting read, and it does scare me a bit. I hope this doesn't result in any of those games/companies getting banned.
  23. Do you guys ever watch lets plays for actual games you want to play? Or games you think you never will play? I've done my fair share of this myself. I usually watch horror games played out, as I'm never any good with them, and it brings me anxiety to play them lol. I find lets plays to be fine to watch. Sometimes I'll watch them with commentary, mainly because I like the person streaming. But other times I just want to see and hear the story play out. Some games I can't play, and some I just don't want to because the controls weird me out, or it's a game I know I'd suck at. Do you guys do this? If so, what games did you watch instead of play?
  24. What is one game you think you could play for the rest of your life. Pick only one game that you could continue to play until the day you die. For me, it would be a tough one. It's a toss up between Super Mario World and WWE Smackdown Here Comes the Pain. I could find endless fun in both games. I love both games as well. But, we can only pick one game, and I think I will have to go with Super Mario World. I can re-play this game over and over and still never tire of it. What about you?
  25. This is kind of old news, but I didn't see any discussion about it anywhere. There has been news that the gaming channel, G4, is going to make a comeback in 2021. Will it come back as a network and air on TV? Or will it be a YouTube channel producing content? Would you subscribe to this channel if it comes back on the air? What kind of programming do you think they will produce? I figure X-play and Attack of the show will be their top shows. But what else do you see them doing? More details on the channel can be found at this article here: The Hollywood Reporter
