  1. With the recent news that Xbox is releasing some of their games on other platforms, like the PS4, PS5, and the Switch. Right now Sea of Thieves seems to be the big xbox exclusive coming to PS5. It was rumored that it will be coming out for the Switch as well, but it hasn't been confirmed yet. But what seems to have been confirmed is that these Xbox games will require you to have an Xbox account in order to play them on other consoles. I figured Xbox would go this route with their titles, but damn is it going to be tedious to have to sign into Xbox just to play Xbox made games on other platforms. Do you think you'd bother with playing Xbox games on your PS5 or Switch? Will this sign-in requirement deter you from purchasing Xbox games on other platforms that may one day be supported on? I personally have no issue with it since I already have an account, but I can see some people being annoyed to go through another hoop to play a game. Unless you're a PC gamer, to which you're probably well used to this by now, since every game needs to have their own launcher now days. What do you think about this?

  2. Whenever you go on vacation, do you ever bring a handheld gaming console along? Maybe a retro classic like the Gameboy, or you bring a more modern handheld like the Switch or Steam Deck. I don't own too many handheld systems, but I do have one of those retro handhelds, the Evercade handheld that takes new cart based games. I could probably take that on vacation with me. But I wish I owned something like the Steamdeck. I could see myself taking something like that on vacation to hold me over while I do my traveling. What about you? What handheld console do you take on your travels?
  3. This looks really cool. It looks like any traditional medieval battle game, but to change things up a bit, you can play with modern weaponry. As in pistols, machine guns, and even bring in a helicopter to wreck some havoc. It looks like you can also drive modern day vehicles to mow down enemies. As well it looks like it adds a bit of real time strategy in the mix too. I don't see any release dates yet, but it sounds like it's dropping sometime this year. My guess in the summer sometime. Check out the trailer below.
  4. Anyone here psyched for the upcoming Rise of the Ronin game? It looks to be a PlayStation exclusive from the Team Ninja, so already that's a good sign for the quality you should expect from this game. The gameplay reminds me a lot of Assassin's Creed and that Sekiro game along with a mix of Tenchu. I'm willing to bet with Team Ninja involved, this game is going to be challenging.
  5. I don't know if it's possible for a game to brick or cause damage to a GPU, but is it possible? I mostly play games on my PC these days and I'm always paranoid about my PC getting damaged. I always put the settings for games at the lowest it can go, and that saves me some worry. But has a game ever destroyed your GPU? Maybe it was an older gaming PC and you played something newer to the point your GPU overheated maybe? Do you have worries about your GPU going like that?
  6. I haven't heard a whole lot about Amiibos or games that utilize Amiibos for a while now. Does Nintendo still produce and sell new Amiibos? What new games even utilize Amiibos? Or are they mostly older titles that work with Amiibos? I know the Switch has NFC support to utilize Amiibos, but what newer games even utilize it? Do most Nintendo branded games have Amiibo support? Or is it a small group of games only?
  7. Has anyone here played Wanderer for any VR headset? It's been out on Steam for a couple years now, and I hear it's coming out for PS VR2 June 27th. The game looks like a lot of fun, you can travel in time with a special watch, that puts you in the body of a random person each time. You can collect weapons and items from these timelines and utilize them throughout other times. Like using a fancy new gun during a WWII battle. Or using a squirt gun filled with gasoline to light up Nazi's.
  8. I have not purchased a game going for $70 yet. I usually just wait for a game to lower in price, or just play what I get through gamepass. I find it far more appealing paying a $15-16 or so to play many games versus spending a $70 pricetag on something like Skull and Bones. If I try that game, it'll be through Gamepass if it's ever added. Which I think will probably be soon with how underhyped and how poorly rated it turned out to be. Also Suicide Squad was released for $70, and no way am I paying that amount for what is essentially a live service game that has already lost most players interest. We know games like GTA VI, anything from FromSoftware, and other big time triple A franchises will easily sell for the $70 release price. But you are usually going to get good out of that price tag. So far most $70 games aren't worth the price, at least for me. This article here - https://exputer.com/exputer/palworld-helldivers-2-prove-70-dollar-games/ discusses how cheaper priced games are more popular as of late, like Palworld and Helldivers 2.
  9. I'm sure a lot of us have dealt with hackers and cheaters in online multiplayer games over our years of gaming. I've encountered most hackers in the call of duty franchise. I think for me it was in Call of duty 4, on the 360. I was playing a game of team death match by myself. I ended up catching someone switching teams mid match. He would jump to the winning team each time. It's not possible to switch teams mid match in a public match. You can in a private match, but not public. He ended up on the winning team after switching yet again at the end of the match. I of course was arguing with this guy the whole way through, but he didn't give a shit. I know I reported him and that was that. I probably blocked him too so I didn't have to deal with him ever again. What kind of hackers and cheaters have you dealt with? Was it anything like this? Or maybe it was people cheating by getting into glitches and killing from some hidden spots, or under the map? What are your worst experiences with these cheaters and hackers?
  10. I found this article here - https://xrsource.net/5764/does-psvr-2-need-pc-support/ It asks Does PSVR 2 Need PC Support? I think it would be awesome if they would make it work for PC. I'm sure modders out there have figured out ways of making the first PSVR work with PC and probably figured it out with PSVR 2 as well. I doubt it would be hard for Sony to make it work for PC, but does Sony need to? I don't think they need to considering their games sell better on PlayStation hardware anyway. They don't really need to sell or support PC if they don't want to. But, I still would love to see PC support with the PSVR 2, or even the first one. But from Sony, idk if I'd trust going the modding route.
  11. What are some games you are always on the lookout for when you're out and about at yard/rummage/garage sales, thrift stores, antique shops, etc? I am always looking for NES, SNES, Genesis, and most other retro games. I don't see a lot of good retro games in my area when I go out thrifting. Usually all I ever find are sports games or mass produced games I already have or don't want. I am also starting to re-build my PS2 collection and build up an Xbox, Gamecube, Wii and more collections. If I see a cheap game, I will likely pick it up, as long as it's something I can see myself playing. Any rare or obscure games you keep your eyes peeled for? I know to always keep an eye out for games like Little Samson.
  12. I did not see this coming. I guess there is an upcoming video game based off of the cult classic horror comedy, Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988). The game will be releasing June 4th for the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. Illfonic is the team behind this, they were also responsible for the recent Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, and you may also know them for that Friday the 13th game. Which I immediately was reminded of with the trailer below. I have never watched the movie, so I might wait to play this until after I check that out.
  13. The Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons remake is dropping Feb 28th, for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Is anyone planning on buying it. I played the original game on the Xbox One back around the time it came out. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to others. But I don't understand why they decided to make a remake of it instead of just re-releasing it with some updated graphics maybe. The game looks great, and I guess the fact it has local co-op now does seem like a good addition. The original game would have been awesome with a two player co-op mode. To my knowledge you had to control both brothers in the original game. You can in this one too, but now you can do co-op. I hope the price isn't too high, the original game is going for $15 right now, I don't remember what it was priced at before, but I'm going to assume the remake will go for like $30 or so.
  14. Found here - https://culturedvultures.com/delisted-digital-games/ We really need game preservation for the games lost to publishing rights and deals not getting sorted. Or Copyrights not being renewed. This list shows off 20 games that are currently delisted from storefronts, and likely only available via physical copies, that is if you can find the lot of them. Some of the games on this list are starting rise in price due to these delistings. Looking at recent prices, for Spec-Ops the Line on the 360, I see it's been going for around $50 for the standard edition, but if you have the Premium edition of the game, I see sold listings for over $100. The list also has P.T. which makes sense, since the only way to get it now is to find a PS4 with it downloaded, and I remember people making tons on selling their PS4 consoles. But yeah, might be time to find some of these games physically while you can. I'm still on the lookout for a copy of Driver San Francisco. That's one I want to get my hands on as I never fully played it. Are there any games that should be added to this list? Do you own any or most of the games on the list? Whether it be physical or digital.
  15. Hidetaka Miyazaki, the owner and creator of Elden Ring and Bloodborne, recently discussed the possibility of releasing a remake of Bloodborne. It's likely not going to happen for the PS5, but Hidetaka Miyazaki believes it best to wait for new hardware to do it, so likely when the PS6 and other new consoles drop. He discusses how it was two console generations between the release of the Demon Souls Remake (PS3-PS5), so Miyazaki kind of expects the same for a Bloodborne remake. (PS4-PS6). Are you find with waiting for the PS6 to get a Bloodborne remake? More on this story here: https://www.eurogamer.net/elden-ring-boss-discusses-bloodborne-remake-benefits-of-waiting-for-new-hardware
  16. I have a few old smartphones that I no longer use. I doubt I could get any profit for selling them or trading them in, they're phones that came out in 2017, so you probably won't be able to do much. I was thinking maybe use one as an emulator, another as a second webcam. I was thinking if I ever do stream, I could utilize two of the old phones as webcams maybe. If I stream, I kinda want to have a second screen for my cat. I think people would be into that. What fun things can you do with an old smartphone?
  17. I found this article today featuring their list of the best Rockstar Games ever made. You can view it here - https://wealthofgeeks.com/the-best-rockstar-games-ever-made/ In it, they list GTA V, Red Dead Redemption 2 and San Andreas as the top 3. There was no mention of any of the original GTA titles. Than again, the first few games (top down) were developed by DMA Designs, but all were published under Rockstar. For the most part I mostly agree with the list. I know GTA V would stack up at the top, but I don't agree with it's placement over RDR2 based on story alone. But the way GTA V broke records sales wise, and how they continue to stay relevant all these years, it makes sense to put it at #1. Would you change this list around at all? Are any Rockstar games missing? Would you replace any on this list with some that didn't make the cut?
  18. Neostream Interactive, the devs behind Little Devil Inside, have recently released a new trailer showing off gameplay for the game, including a developer update about the. You can view the trailer below. It looks really cool. I like the style of graphics, especially when it takes the sky view of the world. That looked cool. And it looks massive in scope, at least in terms of the world you're in. The combat looked pretty good too, was surprised how good it looked. I can't wait to get my hands on this game. You can find more on the game here - http://littledevilinside.com/ Looks like it's a timed exclusive for the PS4/PS5 first according to this article - https://twistedvoxel.com/little-devil-inside-new-gameplay-dev-progress-update/ But, was planned to also release on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. If timed exclusive, I imagine it will drop on those consoles later. Looking at their Kickstarter though, it looks like this game was in the works back in 2015. And they even had a Wii U port in the works.
  19. Nintendo Switch will be getting ports of Grounded and Pentiment. They will be the first two of four Xbox exclusives dropping on the Switch. It's likely these two might also drop on the PlayStation consoles, unless Sony is getting its own 4 Xbox exclusives while the Switch its own as well. I'm sure we'll hear more about the other games coming to Switch. I played a bit of Grounded, but couldn't get into it. Pentiment on the other hand I have heard of, but never played. I hear it's a great game, so maybe one of these days I'll have to check it out. But yeah, I think this is great for Switch players. Grounded seems like a great fit for the platform. Read more about this here - https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/21/24078043/grounded-pentiment-nintendo-switch-release-microsoft-xbox-exclusive-games
  20. Would there be any games you ever considered yourself a pro in? Maybe to the point you could one day go pro and play in tournaments? As a kid I probably thought I was the best at WWE Smackdown Here Comes the Pain because I played it so much. I rarely played it against others, and never played it online at the time, so I don't know how I'd consider myself to be a pro, but I thought I was. Anyway, I don't think there are any games today where I would consider myself a pro. I used to be fairly good at Call of Duty, but I was never pro good. If I ever tried to go pro, I would have been destroyed. I may not be a pro, but do you consider yourself a pro at certain games? And if so, which games?
  21. Battlefront fans are going to love this. It's a new collection that will include both Battlefront 1 and 2, and will have 64 player lobbies. Looks pretty good. It will release for PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and the Switch. It's releasing March 14th.
  22. With the recent release of Tomb Raider I–III Remastered, it made me wonder about the many sequels to these three installments. Do you think we'll see another remastered set release that includes the next three mainline games? Those games are; Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, Chronicles, and The Angel of Darkness. There are games to follow, but they could easily tackle these next three games for a remastered set and then take on the next set of games. Would you like to see these three games get remastered in its own set? And maybe after this remastered trilogy, they can work on a remaster or remake of; Tomb Raider: Legend, Anniversary and Underworld.
  23. I love me some kart racers, especially the likes of Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, the many Sonic themed racers and maybe Crash Team Racing. With that being said, what popular franchises would you like to see land their own kart racer? I'd love to see a kart racer for Sony themed games, could toss in Kratos, a lot of the Twisted Metal characters. They've already done a fighting game similar to Smash Bros. I think it was called PlayStation All-Stars. For the Microsoft side, maybe a Halo kart racer, or Xbox's own all-stars themed racer. What are some franchises you'd like to see get their own kart racer?
  24. Alan Wake came out in 2010, with a remaster dropping in 2021. And of course, the official sequel came out last October. So a 13 year jump from the first to the second game. Now, I have yet to play Alan Wake 2, so if there is some tease near the end that could open up for a sequel, do you think we'll get that sequel in the next few years? Or could it take another 10+ years to see a sequel? If you have played Alan Wake 2, please don't spoil it, I just want to know if a third game is a possibility.
  25. Freedom Fighters was a popular game that dropped on the PS2, Xbox and PC back in 2003. I've only ever played the game once myself, and haven't heard much about it ever since. I think it would be the perfect game to see a reboot of, or hell, even a remake or remaster of the original game. Square Enix currently owns the rights to it, so it's really about them giving the go ahead and starting production of a new game. What would you prefer? A re-visit to the original game with a remaster or possibly remake? Or would you prefer they make a completely new game in the franchise?
