  1. They have a Vahalla coat now. Think I'll braid my beard for next Halloween and get me some hatchets!
  2. So, I got the game; what do I do now? Are they going to update the game with fixes? Sell a different version of the game? Play it and hope?
  3. That is true Out of all those war games, shooting games, villains in games, etc.; they are a reflection of human nature and all the violence we cause in real life as if it's perfectly normal to assume there is always conflict. Even if human nature always fails in not letting evil gain power, we also never fail to have our share of heroes. In games usually it's one person or a select few, which in real life it also seems the heroes are few, but they are among us at times we need them most. Human natures always has conflict; conflict needs balance; heroes are that balance. And they can't prevent every mess; things get worse before they get better; But sometimes be proud we have those among us that nobody even knows yet, has a hero stirring in their heart. Sometimes only tragedy can awaken that hero. They are among us. Games in general usually portray a hero as huge, or a knight, superhuman, some kind of commando etc. And it almost seems a person has to be that way to take on all the evil. In real life we wish we had those heroes at the ready. It seems so far away and almost fantasy to hope for someone to come to the rescue. Playing games give us that 'fight for the good!' We have a natural instinct to want to do what is right. But human nature blurs our minds with all its poison and blinds that natural instinct. So a hero is just as natural as a villain. Whereas villains are constantly attacking, we see more of them, till heroes rise.
  4. Any game that has different endings or consequences from the choices you make.
  5. That's pretty interesting; I've never heard of it before. What kind of game would they actually make out of it? What if they can add jump scares as you walk through your home or the woods while wearing a headset? Now that would be somethin!!! Other than that or maybe a sport, I think it would be limited. Unless they can have it more of a personalized game where you can go anywhere you want and take a video, whether at the nude beach or Rome, and integrate the feed into a game. But if you wanted 50 hours of gaming, you would need to record 50 hours of video. Or maybe my beak is flapping like a hungry duck.
  6. The Walking Dead game series had a lot to do with human nature or their struggles with morality and against each other about as much if not more so than the zombies. Under certain circumstances, anyone can change and become 'the threat' to survivors whether in their own group or on the road. Trust, decision making, leadership, competence, integrity and morality and many other qualities are presented in the game. Even though it's just a game, it makes me think about those real behaviors in people and how they would act in crisis mode including my own self. We all think we are fully capable of handling situations but we never truly know. And it's weird to think about family and friends. Everything you know about them; how will they react with a group of people in a desperate survivor mode? Is someone very controlling who may want to dictate the group and not listen to everybody's input? Is someone a coward and throw you under the bus? Is someone immoral and may steal food, drugs, or supplies? Is someone a showoff who may murder to look tough? Is someone fearful and paranoid that may ultimately harm another first in false judgement? Is someone super quiet and self isolates from the group who creates distrust? Are you surrounded by man dogs that would take another's innocence? Or is there someone that you know you can count on?
  7. Alien Isolation and Dead Space 2. Interesting to play two scary space ship games back to back.
  8. I'm thinking about getting the book series. Is it different from the game? I've been reading The Witcher comic series and enjoy it. The entire comic is free here for anyone interested: https://comiconlinefree.net/comic/the-witcher-omnibus
  9. That was a hard game. Took lots of memory skills.
  10. Yeah I recently downloaded the game from playstation store and it had a bug in it... hahaha Naw, it really did though. A scene when the room goes all black I couldn't find my way out and I walked around forever and ever in pitch black. I looked it up and it was a bug. There was supposed to be a way out, but not for me. Luckily it was at the end of a chapter. Just had to log off and back on and it started me at the beginning of the next ch. where I needed to be. Are bugs common in downloaded games?
  11. I just did agree to disagree If you want to discuss this under politics section, then I'll be happy to discuss that topic with you.
  12. You are right that we should't underestimate Nazis. But we also shouldn't hold them to such high prestige in intelligence. It takes more to see wrong and stand for human integrity than it does to follow or give in to obvious immorality. What we should not underestimate is their intentions and how far their evil can go. As far as games, most shooter games don't get in depth in stories. I don't know what kind of intelligence they should grant Nazis in games. I always see them having high tech. Should every WW2 game show scenes of the Holocaust? Should Vietnam war games depict civilians getting slaughtered? Should modern era war games depict what terrorists do to their victims? I think if a game did go into detail it would create backlash on many sides. Maybe we do need to be reminded. But I don’t think you can keep politics out of games if you stir up the hornets and bees. As far as anti fascists go, we can agree to disagree about who are the ones repeating history.
  13. Yeah it's pretty amazing that rats can get into anything, climb almost anything, swim, build nests out of anything. They are survivors and pretty intelligent. There are a lot of wild rats where I live by the woods and yes they get into everything. I wonder how different wild vs tame rats are. I know that a tame rabbit can't produce babies with a wild rabbit. And wild hogs grow large tusks compared to tame ones. They all really do have unique personalities. There is a squirrel I have been feeding outside for a couple months now. There are other ones that also come around to get some food and they all look exactly alike. But that one I can always tell which it is by its behavior. It will stretch out on a branch and watch me, and seems comfortable around me, not so much yet to hand feed it. I haven't really bothered with that though. Other squirrels don't hang around for long and always do certain things that I know is not my squirrel friend. But that same one will run down a branch and make a noise for me to feed it sometimes when I open my door.
  14. I got to thinking about that. I can’t think of a way for it to be possible to see or hear the thoughts in a brain and relay it on a computer screen. I think it is possible to mentally press buttons on a controller or pad wired to your brain, but to look at the screen of a game and mentally move the character w/o any sort of buttons connected to the brain is beyond reasoning that I can think of. And if we could, then forget about mentally playing a game, at that point we could read the minds of animals and other humans. I can see how we could cause the brain to make movements, create any function the brain does from a panel somewhere else, but to process an image in a person's mind onto a screen and vice versa instantaneously to play a game would be capable of mind reading too.
  15. AC Odyssey has a whole in depth learning experience in its options menu where you go to actual historical locations and tour it moving your character around and so on. And while in the actual gameplay historical sights you come across are noted and you get XP points. And it has a brief summary of it in the map. I thought that was very unique. Some of it has to do with politics because Greece was the beginning of democracy and so there is a lot of history there as well as the olympics which they reveal as well.
  16. So in other words, even though most political games that are historical can also have significance in today's politics. Like in Wolfenstein fighting them Nazis. I can definitely relate that to today's climate. So even though it is based on an alternate history of the Nazis taking over America in the New Colossus, the little collectibles in the game such as post cards and letters have writings that actually depict fascist agendas that have historical and present day relevance. And I say that as the game came out a few years ago and still in 2020 we have heard the same things said in our current political environment almost word for word from trump and party. Such a weird deja vu to hear your government repeat such vile antics. While games shouldn't be used as a political prop, historical games could be relevant today for that simple truth to the matter, history does repeat itself.
  17. Are you talking about electrodes attached to our brain stem? If they ever get to the point where your brain can move a prosthetic arm, then yes the same can be to play a game. And I believe it's a possibility. That opens the door to cyborgs taking over as in Terminator. There is already medical implants that can alert authorities if you miss a dose of drugs. Add nanotechnology that can do who knows what on the cellular level; possibly carrying microscopic 'satellites' relaying messages throughout the brain to control bodily functions and thoughts. Who knows? In the Dark Ages they would of thought flying to the moon or communicating with someone instantly across the planet was witchery, alienation, or God resurrected.
  18. I came across this game: PS4 We. The Revolution where during the French Revolution you are a judge and decides who to sentence to death. Seems interesting to me, but not sure how it plays out.
  19. That's some pretty good advice. As an owner of rabbits, I try to care for them as you have stated. Seems a bit harder for rats though because at least rabbits chew on hay!!! I've had a couple of accidental litters, but it is simply amazing to welcome them to the family. Rabbits are vegetarian, but rats are omnivores right? Do their pellets have meat in it or can they survive on vegetable proteins? Must be pretty awesome to have them as pets. Sure they are entertaining pets!
  20. I didn't get very far in Bloodborne cause it was too hard. But the game would be really cool if not for that. Any resource or ammo used, you lose it for good even if you die. When you try again you have less ammo and you lose all coin. Every time. So the trick is to play and collect resources then go and buy what you need in upgrades or sell stuff before you die. Kind of takes the play out of game play. I hope Dark Souls isn't the same way. There is a remastered Dark Souls 1 on ps4 that looks like a good start. But which out of the Dark Souls games are better?
  21. Those are hard ones to choose from on the list, and I haven't played any! It only comes down to personal favoritism.
  22. A survival game yes; fantasy adventure game no. If you can conjure magic, you don't need to groom anything. But I personally don't like it either way. Sometimes it just works, other times-come on, really?
  23. Which is the better of these games? There was a Demon's Souls on ps3 and a new one for the ps5. Dark Souls has 3 titles and then there is Bloodborne. The only game I played out of these was Bloodborne and it was very hard so I stopped. Which do you think is the easiest and hardest and better gameplay or most interesting? I want to eventually get back into Bloodborne, but Dark Souls 3 looks good. I also have Sekiro, but haven't tackled that yet and I heard that is hardest. But I am interested in the Souls lore. Any input on any of these games and comparisons?
