  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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/
  8. 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
  9. This game doesn't seem like much, but I might check it out if it's really cheap. To me it looks like a literal walking simulator. You walk around this area that looks somewhat like a pool, but the design constantly changes and gets weirder. But, there is nothing chasing you like monsters or enemies, there is no dying from what I see and no music or story. You essentially play the game with just the sounds of the game itself, like being in the water, your characters movements, the echo's in the level, etc. It kind of looks relaxing, but I can't imagine this being a huge hit. idk, is this something you'd play? Or would you pass on this sort of thing? You can download a demo on Steam if interested, looks to be coming out sometime in April - https://store.steampowered.com/app/2663530/POOLS/
  10. This is really cool news. It seems a GBA game that was cancelled three separate times is finally getting released after 22 years after being completed. That game is called Kien and was originally meant to be a release by AgeOfGames before it went to other studios. But now it's Incube8 games taking the challenge on and making the attempt to finally release this game. The game was originally set to release in 2002, making it as far as review publications before it was ultimately cancelled. It was picked up two times over and yet neither time was it officially released. More on this news here - https://www.destructoid.com/thrice-canceled-gba-game-kien-is-finally-getting-released-22-years-after-completion/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=thrice-canceled-gba-game-kien-is-finally-getting-released-22-years-after-completion
  11. Has anyone here played this arcade style boxing game? It's made by Purple Tree S R L and look to be heavily inspired by Punch out. The gameplay looks similar, but I really am digging the art style they went with. It's been out since September, but seems to have gone under the radar a bit, as today was the first time I heard of it.
  12. Contra is back baby, anyone here picking up the new game? It's dropping tomorrow for The Switch, PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. I hear the reviews are praising it for going back to the style of gameplay the series is known for. Is this a day one buy for you?
  13. The Resistance series was a huge IP for Sony back in the PS3, PSP and PS Vita eras, but fans haven't seen anything new in the series since 2012's Resistance: Burning Skies which released on the PS Vita. But, there hasn't been a main console exclusive since Resistance 3 back in 2011. Do you think we're due for a sequel or a reboot maybe? Maybe they will remaster the series or remake them, that seems to be a big thing with studios lately. Anyway, what would you like to see the Resistance series go? Will it ever come back?
  14. This is some sad news to share, as it looks like all Adult Swim games will be delisted from digital storefronts by this May, as their parent company Warner Bros Discovery have decided to delist all Adult Swim games, and possibly others in their catalog. Team2Bit, the makers of Fist Puncher tried to work with Warner Bros about releasing the game back to them through the Steam publisher account, but they claimed they weren't going to do that as they don't have the resources to do so. So from the sounds of all of this, is that a lot of these Adult Swim games can no longer be purchased starting sometime in May. You can view the full list of games affected by this news via the link below: https://delistedgames.com/as-more-developers-confirm-it-looks-likely-that-all-adult-swim-games-titles-will-be-removed-by-may/
  15. Dragon's Dogma 2 is coming out this March, the 22nd to be exact. The first Dragon's Dogma dropped in 2012, so it's been a long time coming. A new video released showing off the new game, including some of the new mechanics. Also you can download the character creator right now for free, so you can get started on creating your character. You can download it on all platforms including steam below: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2054970/Dragons_Dogma_2/ You guys checking it out when it releases? I never played the first game, but hear it was pretty good.
  16. Remember the game Stranglehold? It was a John Woo style story within a video game. It stars Chow Yun-fat who was often features in John Woo movies. Anyway, this game was pretty much an early release for the PS3 and Xbox 360. I played through the game on the 360 many years ago, but never finished it as one of the last bosses I faced was far too OP and I just gave up. Anyway, what I did play was actually quite fun. I liked using the bulletime effects, as some shots you could direct towards an enemy and see a cool kill cam similar to the later a Sniper Elite games. It's a game I would love to see remade or remastered one day. I'd re-play it if they fix some of the boss battles.

    Reveil

    Check out the trailer for Reveil, a new game that is said to be a narrative first-person psycho-thriller with the focus on story, puzzles and exploration. It just released on the 6th for the PS5. And the cool thing about this, is that it's only $20.
  18. Found this on reddit recently and thought it'd be fun to share here. I guess The Simpsons Game from 2007, had different style of cover art for each version of the game. So the 360, PS3, DS, PS2, etc all had different covers. You can view them below. Did you ever know about this? This was news to me.
  19. I remember when the first Shellshock game came out, but never played it. I heard good things about the first game, and always wanted to pick it up, but never made the push to get it. The first game in the series was Shellshock: Nam '67 a traditional style third person military shooter that takes place during the Vietnam war. I knew a friend who owned it growing up and I remember watching him playing it during a sleepover. And then following that, they released Shellshock 2: Blood Trails, which I hear had some horror themed elements, but instead of it being in third person, they instead went with FPS style gameplay. The story also takes inspiration from real stories during the Vietnam war, but they also make some aspects of the story up. Especially if there are horror elements in this one. But, I hear it was critically worse than the original game and nothing came afterwards. Do you think we could one day see a revival of this franchise? Or is it pretty much dead?
  20. The first Lost Planet game was a decent hit, but the sequels to follow kept getting worse according to the ratings and fan opinions. I have not played any of the games in the series, but I'm sure there is a game worth checking out in the first one, maybe even the last two that released. The series hasn't done anything since LP: 3 back in 2013, but I think the death nail was the fact Capcom didn't develop it, instead Spark Unlimited did and it looks like most of the crew from the first two games weren't part of development. I'm sure Capcom owns the right to the series, so could they revive it somehow? I'm sure fans of the first game would love to revisit it. They could also reboot the series, starting from scratch.
  21. I got a copy of Stoked on 360, but I don't recall if I ever played it once. I was looking through my 360 games recently and wanted to find a game to play through next and realized I was in the mood for some snowboarding games. I have SSX, but didn't care for the reboot, so I am thinking I will finally give Stoked a try, but I want to hear some opinions on it first. Was it an okay snowboarding game at release? There isn't that many snowboarding games out there anymore. I wish we'd get more SSX games, but I don't see EA going back there for a while. Anyway, is Stoked worth playing?
  22. If you're a fan of the Advanced Wars series, you might like Athena Crisis, as it's said to be heavily inspired by it. I have not played an Advanced Wars game myself, but I am aware there is a huge fandom around them. Athena Crisis released on Steam a couple days ago in early access and it is said to have 7-player skirmishes, and a map editor. This early access version also includes a prequel campaign to start you off. Check out the trailer below. I'm really taking a liking to the style of graphics they went with.
  23. Has anyone here played New Star GP? It's an arcade racing game with retro style visuals that came out in early access last summer. It's still in early access on Steam but looks to be making an official release on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch tomorrow. I like the idea of playing a modern racer with retro style visuals, I can see it bringing me back to when I played the original Gran Turismo, or games like Test Drive and maybe Daytona USA.
  24. Here is a first look for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants Unleased video games, which is expected to release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch or PC via Windows and Steam. There is no official release date as of yet, but they say it will likely be Q4 of 2024. So not too long to wait if it's not delayed or changed before then. The game will follow the recent movie that came out and from the sounds of it, it will be a somewhat open world 3D action platformer. They say you can explore the New York City via the streets, sewers below and even up the many skyscrapers, so maybe it'll be similar in scope to the recent Spider-Man games. It will also have single player and two-player co-op. Kind of sad there is no mention of 4 player co-op online, would kind of expect that considering there being 4 turtles. Maybe they will add more details on multiplayer at a later date. The link below also shows off some screenshots of the game in action, no trailer yet from what I can see though.

  25. Turning Point: Fall of Liberty had an interesting idea for a first person shooter. Taking place in an alternate reality of early 1950s, where Germany and Japan won WWII and the US is fighting off an invasion of Nazi's. But, the game was a major flop on release, and was forgotten soon after. I got the game from a game trading site a long time ago, played it for maybe an hour or two and that was it. It was pretty bad. It got bad reviews across the board as well, and I guess the devs called out the bad reviews saying the game was meant for casual gamers and not hardcore gamers, and said the hardcore gamers were too hard on the game. That is mentioned here - https://www.ign.com/articles/2008/03/13/hudsons-low-wii-expectations I'm sure some of you have played it. Did anyone here get into it? From what I played, it didn't feel like a game that was supposed to be released on a console of said generation. It played and looked like a game from a previous generation. This released on the 360, and looked like a Xbox original game.
