  1. Source - https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2024/02/xbox-fans-petitioning-for-helldivers-2-to-launch-on-xbox Helldivers 2 is an exclusive to PlayStation consoles and is also available on Steam. It sounds like Xbox fans are a little jealous of Sony fans for getting this one, so much so that fans have created a petition to bring the popular release to Xbox consoles. If you're so inclined to vote, you can do so here - https://www.change.org/p/bring-helldivers-2-to-xbox-fans-await-thrilling-co-op-action It's already nearing the 50,000 signatures needed. Though I highly doubt this petition will change anything. Do you think we could expect Helldivers 2 on Xbox one of these days? Maybe with Xbox allowing a few of their exclusives, we could see Sony dishing out some of their own. But even that I doubt would happen.
  2. I am looking for some free, but fun fighting games. I've recently been playing Drunken Wrestlers 2. It's a free to play fighting game essentially, where it utilizes more of a ragdoll effect when fighting. I have been having a blast with it and was curious if there are any other similar fighting games that may be free on Steam and other platforms?
  3. If you still have your memory cards for your PS1, and you have saves you want to protect, there is a way to secure those saves for the future. As sad as it is to say, our memory cards will eventually stop working, as any device does. The files on said memory card don't stick around forever either, so there's always a chance that your old saves could be long lost to time. But, someone was able to make it possible to copy your old saves and transfer them to a PC for safe keeping. It's not an easy process, and requires an adapter for it to work, but it's one way to backup your old saves. You can view the full guide here: https://pslegends.com/how-to-backup-your-ps1-memory-cards/ I don't know if it works for PS2 memory cards though.
  4. If you're someone who has dealt with stick drift in your joy con controllers, how often has it happened to you? And how many times have you sent your joy con in for a free repair? I know Nintendo a while back would offer free repairs to those who have joy con drift. I had sent my nephews joy cons in and they sent a new replacement in. But now another of his controllers is starting to act up, and I may have to send that in for repair as well. With that being said, how many times have you had to send your joy cons in for repair or replacement because of controller drift?
  5. PlayStation hasn't released a new inFamous game since their release of Second Son in 2014, which is nearing 10 years now without a new game in the series. Do you think Sony forgot about the franchise? Do you think we'll ever see remasters or remakes of the original two games and maybe a remaster of Second Son? We'd of course have to hope for Sucker Punch to make a new game, they've been mostly focused on Ghost of Tsushima. But now they look to be free to make new games, do you think that a sequel to inFamous could happen? Or are we more likely to land a remaster or remake of the original games?
  6. From - https://www.gameinformer.com/2024/02/16/report-respawn-developing-a-first-person-mandalorian-game Looks like Respawn is working on a new first-person game around the Mandalorian TV show. If you don't know, The Mandalorian is a popular Star Wars spin-off show that airs on Disney Plus. I watched the first two or three seasons, but haven't caught the most recent season. Or it could have been the other spin-off they did, I forget what it was called. Anyway, it finally looks like we're getting a game based on this series. And with Respawn doing it, I am actually kind of hyped for this. Though, it's being said you do not play the actual Mandalorian, aka Din Djarin, but as Mandalorian of your own, likely a completely new character in the story. It won't be an open world game though, and is said to be more linear, but that you'd travel to other planets and do missions there. I think it's similar in style to Jedi: Fallen Order. With Respawn making another, I'll be happy to check it out. I liked Fallen Order, but have yet to play Survivor. That will be next for sure.
  7. I know the original game was a mixed bag for some, but I had a hell of a blast playing this with my friend and brother back in the day on the PS1. Even though it wasn't that good of a game and got pretty repetitive, I still had lot of fun with it. So much so, that I would welcome a remake. I doubt that would ever happen of course, as I don't think it was a game people particularly cared about. But if it ever happened, I would put money down on it. I think with a remake, they could do a hell of a lot more these days. Would you like a remake? Or even an updated remaster with better controls and additional content?
  8. When I was growing up my parents would sometimes rent me a Sega Genesis and some games for the weekend. I specifically remember them asking if I ever wanted to rent the Sega Channel. I never understood what they meant by it, and I don't think they fully understood either. But I never did end up renting it along with the console, because I never had a clue what it did. That was until I got older and realized it was like an online service with the option to play certain games. In a way like gamepass sorta. Did anyone here actually get to try it out? I've always wanted to see what it was like in action. I assume you had to use your phone line to utilize it, and I see there was a monthly fee for it, so I don't know how places like Blockbuster were able to rent it out.
  9. Found this article - https://culturedvultures.com/nes-facts-nintendo-enterainment-system/ it's about 15 NES facts you probably didn't know. I am by no means a pro when it comes to the NES and definitely don't know the full history of it. So there was a good deal of stuff I had no idea about. Like that Atari were in talks with Nintendo to release the NES in with Atari branding in the US originally. Didn't know about the NES satellite and quite a few other things listed. I sort of knew about the Tetris dispute between Atari and Nintendo. Atari thinking they had the rights to put out Tetris, but then turning out it was Nintendo who had the rights. And of course who doesn't know about Nintendo Power, like huh? I imagine there are a few of you here who do know about a lot of the stuff mentioned on this list, or even all of it. Is there anything they may have missed, or something you'd add?

    Payday 3

    Has anyone played the new Payday yet? I have not heard much of anything about this game in forever, and it's been out since Sept. I don't recall it releasing with much fanfare either, seemed fans weren't too pleased about something they did, maybe it being an online only game. And I read that the userbase fell off to the point that Payday 2 has more active players. Starbreeze even recently announced the game was underperforming, but it sounds like they are going to attempt to fix the problems. Like No Man's Sky style maybe, how it came out hated, and ended up actually working out. I don't know if fans are going to come back to Payday 3 though. They'd have to do some big changes. More on what Starbreeze had to say: https://www.gamedeveloper.com/business/starbreeze-admits-payday-3-is-massively-underperforming Reviews on steam have been pretty brutal too. I guess they released paid DLC recently with all the problems going on. But, it's good to hear they are going to fix the problems. I hope.
  11. Target currently has an Xbox Series S starter bundle going for $219.99 new. It comes with a standard controller, and 3 months of gamepass. Not a bad deal. Found it from IGN here: https://www.ign.com/articles/xbox-series-s-consoles-have-dropped-to-just-220-at-target I believe it's only available in the US though. There are some other deals in the article, but the Xbox was the best deal from what I could tell. Here's the link to the target page: https://www.target.com/p/xbox-series-s-starter-bundle/-/A-89786038 Wish I had some extra money to splurge, cause I'd pick it up.
  12. I used to play the hell out of the UFC games by THQ. I think I had the first two, and rented the third at some point. I really enjoyed the gameplay and how good the controls were. Then when THQ closed down, we ended up getting UFC titles by EA. EA has produced MMA games, but I don't think they had the license for UFC until after THQ. Anyway, I loved the Undisputed UFC games. I could never really get into the EA UFC games though. What would you say your favorite franchises are? Is it the THQ games from the early 2010s? Or is it EA's UFC franchise that started in 2014? I always go with UFC Undisputed, it's one of my favorite MMA games and I don't think I could stick with the EA games as much as the Undisputed series. What do you think?
  13. Things have been cleared up a bit thanks to the Xbox podcast that just dropped. I know there was a lot of worry about Xbox skipping out on hardware and putting their content on other platforms. And while it is somewhat true, Phil Spencer announced there will only be four games coming to other consoles, and it sounds like they're currently being worked on, so nothing that recently came out. Phil was asked about if that includes Starfield and the upcoming Indiana Jones game, but those will be staying exclusive to the Xbox brand. My guess is that they will allow the next Call of Duty, maybe Elder Scrolls. But what could the other two games be? Phil Spencer said two of them will be smaller and more community driven games, so maybe something multiplatform, has cross play. Game pass is staying on Xbox as well, not moving to other platforms. They also briefly discuss hardware and the future. They mention they have plans to reveal some hardware news the next holiday season, and even mention next gen hardware is in the works. You can watch the full podcast below. The news isn't as bad as I was expecting. Were you worried they were going to stop making consoles?
  14. Project Hornet was just revealed not too long ago, it's being coined a PvE Co-Op tactical shooter. The trailer below doesn't show much, but what I do like about it, is how it sort of looks real. It reminds me a lot of the Unrecord trailer, that looked almost too realistic at times. This on the other hand isn't nearly as good looking, but there are moments where it looks like it could be a recording on a VHS camera or something. It's set in a nuclear wasteland, which happens to be overrun by something paranormal. Check the trailer below and let me know what you think. Oh, and this game is being done by a new team called Antistatic Studios, supposedly they have developers who have worked on Cyberpunk 2077, BioShock, Borderlands, and Conan Exiles. So that's cool. I'm kind of interested in checking this one out.
  15. Check out The Inquisitor, a new dark fantasy style adventure game, where you play an Inquisitor who is responsible for investigating crimes and secrets. The interesting thing about it, is that in this scenario, Jesus did not die on the cross, and instead he unleashed vengeance on all who don't believe in him. I thought that was an interesting concept. Like, what if Jesus lived and wanted revenge or control. The only concern I have, is the character models look awful, and their animations look bad too. But otherwise I'm kind of tempted to check it out. It's out now for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
  16. This looks really good. A new third-person action adventure game where you must explore an alien planet. It's a direct sequel to the 1999 video game Outcast, which itself had a remake called Outcast: Second Contact. I have not played either version, but I am intrigued to check them out. They look like a lot of fun. Anyway, who here is interested in this sequel? It will release on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5.
  17. Found an article that discusses some of the cancelled video games sequels we never got. Games like Silent Hills, Fable Legends, and Fez 2 are mentioned. I remember Fez 2 was supposed to happen, but the developer couldn't take criticism or something and decided to never make a follow-up. Wasn't the game nearly finished too? I can't think of any video game sequels that never happened that I did end up wanting. Wasn't there supposed to be another Syphon Filter, but that was cancelled? You can check the article here for the full list - https://wealthofgeeks.com/canceled-video-game-sequels/ Any game sequels missing from the list?
  18. This looks very heavily inspired by the likes of Metroid. It is a Metroidvania style game, but looks very similar in style and gameplay. The enemies even look similar in some ways. I can see myself checking this game out one of these days. Looks to be dropping for the Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam) on March 14th.
  19. This looks really cool, I'm getting like Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Bulletstorm vibes from the gameplay, and maybe with a hint of Doom. I really like the art style along with the music. Which is why I was reminded a lot of Blood Dragon. Maybe more so with the neon glow of things. This is another game that released a demo recently on Steam - https://store.steampowered.com/app/2111190/MULLET_MAD_JACK/
  20. I wish I had a PS VR or a VR headset period. This looks like a lot of fun, kind of reminds me of Mirror's Edge, but in VR. Speaking of, they should make a Mirror's Edge VR game if they haven't already. Anyway, back to the subject. This game is releasing for the PS VR2, but there is currently no release date. Though you can wish-list it on the PlayStation store here - https://store.playstation.com/en-us/concept/10008454
  21. Are there any games that you remember loving as a kid, but then as you got older, you either lost interest in it or just can't stand it anymore. I think for me, it's more to do with fighting games in general. These days I'm not too heavily into fighting games, though I will play some from time to time. But, back when I was a kid I was really into them. I loved learning the special moves and fatalities in the first Mortal Kombat, and played my fair share of the Street Fighter games. But now days I can't get into them, maybe I don't have the patience to learn them. What about you though? Are there any games you grew up with that you can't stand to play anymore? I still play wrestling games, but even those I'm losing interest in.
  22. Has anyone heard of this? It's one of those narrative adventure games where the story is the main focus. The cool thing about this one, is the graphics make it look to be in claymation. I don't think it's real Claymation or if they made the characters in the style of it, but it's pleasing to see in a video game format. It looks to be coming out for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S & PC.
  23. This looks pretty interesting. From what I can tell, you have to use one single bullet to take out a group of enemies. It kind of reminds me of Hitman's Sniper Challenge, but where you can only use one bullet. Instead, you have to plan out who to take out first in order to then control your bullet to target other enemies. It's kind of nifty how they do it. I hope it plays well. Also, it's developed by Devolver Digital and has no official release date as of this moment. But you can play the demo on Steam. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1309950/Children_of_the_Sun/
  24. With physical games likely dying with the next generation of consoles or even sooner than that, do you think that it could result in more digital sales in the future? With physical gone, that means the attention will go to digital distribution, but with that, I hope they do more sales on digital games. Do you think that could happen? Or are we going to see no changes to the way digital sales go?
  25. Has anyone played this game yet? It's a new online 4v4 third person shooter where you use foam to help you move faster through the environment. I also believe you can use the foam as an obstacle for opponents. It's heavily inspired by Splatoon, but instead of having to cover the whole area with paint, you instead spray foam. The foam doesn't give you any points if you cover the whole area, but it gives you more speed from what I'm seeing. It's got other modes like PVP & PVE modes. It also looks to be exclusive to the PS4 and PS5 right now, and it looks like it has a lot of elements of live service, so expect this to probably die out in a few months unless it somehow picks up fans.
