  1. For me, I always had weight issues in my inventory which is the reason I stopped playing it. But you don't have to go around and pick up everything. If you want to city build then you will need those supplies. You can have a companion with you to carry weight and help fight. There is always something to find somewhere and you can use a dog to sniff it out. I think the game is something worth trying. It is a love or hate game. I had the same weight problem in Fallout 3 which I also stopped playing. Fallout 4 has better graphics, shooting mechanics, and city building. I thought the city building was a cool addition. Maybe try the cheaper Fallout 3? Much better graphics in 4 though. It's just one of those games you may love and another may hate. Environment is cool; city build; you get companions; change outfits; build weapons; monsters and bandits; protect your community and others; hack computers and pick locks; story and quests; hop into armor suit to destroy...
  2. Why do they call it Satanic Temple? Doesn't that defeat it's purpose? It's kind of hypocritical to have that name that usually represents evil, and declare compassion and empathy. But those 7 tenets are good to follow. What 14 tenets do you have?
  3. Need For Speed Heat looks good I saw on youtube videos. So far that's two recommendations for that one.
  4. Sure you are thinking of Dying Light? Because the second one hasn't come out yet that I know of.
  5. Dying Light is a really good game. It's open world apocalypse-zombie. I don't think much is going to compare to RE7. Your standards are already set high. Definitely give Dying Light The Following Enhanced Edition a try. There is always The Last of Us if you haven't played it yet. Don't miss out on that one. Part 2 also was just released.
  6. The next two months are going to be critical because trump is a person that may face criminal charges once out of office due to his taxes and whatever else that may come up. He won't have the White House protect him and a man with power and nothing to lose is dangerous. He will stir up his terrorist extremists to start violence and terrorize America tying to create a civil war before Jan 20th. Let's see what other republicans stand with trump to the end. Let's see if fox news falls in line to call for violence. Think that it would be a good idea if BLM stays off the streets till Jan 20th so as to not give right wing terrorism a chance to create a 'fight'. Let the far right extremists get taken down by the law. That would be good to watch. How will the police react then? No BLM protestors to abuse. They will have a real threat on their hands with far right militias. Let's see which police fall in line with terrorism and which protect and serve.
  7. Democracy continues. After everything the republicans tried to do to suppress our votes, we pulled through. 244 years of democracy almost washed away by republicans. More importantly than this win is to reach out to 70 million republicans that voted for trump. We will have a president for all and not for half the country. We will reach out to you even though you displayed traitorism. We won't forget. But we will try to help your anger and fear. Even with a compromised senate again, we will still reach out to those that didn't vote for a democracy. That's what is important. Moving forward.
  8. Your days of sexism and racism are over. We will try to work with your kind. Are you American? If so we will work together and unite. Your failures as a person can be helped. No more need for cultism. If you don't believe in all rights then join the orange tent. We will help clowns
  9. HAPPY HALLOWEEN: THIS IS WHAT I THINK ABOUT YOU ALL
  10. Please exclude me from any votes. I do not want to participate in this vote or any future votes anyone might put me up for. I don't feel comfortable this month or last month. It makes me cautious and I don't like it. I respect the reason why I might be part of the poll and any that put me up for it; but I feel it takes away from my freedom of expression because I think I have to be a certain way. I will no longer be a part of the member of the month participants. I don't want anyone to ever put me up for it anymore. Please respect that. And thank you
  11. I think that's supposed to stimulate energy and homeostasis properties on the cellular level. It's like slapping a mushroom log or soak in water to stimulate growth of edible mushrooms. Damn those old folks look tasty. Got some crispy kale after a frost!!!
  12. I've taken my own meaning from this song. A point in life where I realized all my friends are gone and remembering a time when I was in a better place. Maybe that's part of what the song means. I don't know. One of my favorites since I first heard it 25 years ago. It's a long song. What is 8 minutes of life anyways.
  13. After a certain checkpoint before going into something big or finishing something big I like to stop and just enjoy the experience. Same with reading a couple chapters in a book. Same with watching a show (I usually record many episodes before watching one). Or moving into a new territory in a map. If I don't stop and think about my experience, then later I easily forget what I just went through. How did I get to this point? Oh yeah...Everything becomes a jumble. To immerse is good, but to stomp through the pits, soar on a dragon in the sky, fall into an alien planet, die into heaven, kill the beast, and save the princess all in one sitting is mentally challenging. Maybe I have short term memory loss. During the day, no excuse to stop and do something outside. At night, don't just think about running through a game to finish it. Enjoy it, and stop at a good checkpoint. Think about it. Or maybe you don't have a challenging game where you have to make choices.
  14. Get him drunk on football game night, afterwards plug in your system and pop in a non thinking game. I did that as a teen with my step dad. He drank on football sundays and at the time I had sega genesis with John Madden Football. Next thing I know he is laying on the ground with pillows playing my Sega when nobody is around. MF Was a fun football game.
  15. I love apocalypse environments with cities or towns destroyed. I can't get enough of it. And when my mood changes, I enjoy ancient civilization type settings. RDR2 has that unique western environment which I think is a stand alone in the gaming world. I played Gun on ps2, which was ok (Native American controversies). A good space and planets type environment is also good. I've recently been giving Mass Effect 2 another try. Don't know why I stopped first time around. Top 2 would be apocalypse and ancient civilization.
  16. Of course it is. Anything with design is an art, from characters, environment, story, and all the other details and objects that work together no matter if it's made to look real or not. Speaking of art, just want to share I used to draw a lot growing up using charcoal. I always drew scenes in nature cause that's just what I loved. Is that an art trying to copy something that is real? Photography is art. But people always asked me why draw something to make it look just like what is already there? Why not take a picture? I don't know. First of all cameras back then you had to go and get developed. Trying to make something look as real as I could was an art to me. That challenge is increasing in video games trying to make things look as real as possible.
  17. Just finished book 1. It's a very brilliant book. Every sentence has purpose and very complex story which was done really well; great characters. I've got book 2 already and gonna buy the whole series, plus all the side novels from other authors. Got some great reading for a long while. Thanks again!
  18. There was a recent update in RDR2, maybe they threw in some fun. I tried to play last night, but couldn't get on the network so I played the ps3 Undead Nightmare instead. I'll check again without network to see if I've got some weird shit. Maybe you got some laced Halloween candy???
  19. I like all sorts of flavors, but growing up we always had Halls cherry. Nothing like a candy that even clears up sinuses.
  20. I love seeing a strong female character in games. They tend to be sexualized which is awesome for me, cause I'd rather have a fine lady walking around rather than the same old, really really old and overdone macho tough guy male. But the idea to have different gear to switch out, which most games are doing, leaves it up to you how you would like her to look whether it be short shorts or fully covered. When the movie Wonder Woman came out, she was in a bikini outfit representing a strong female superhero. I don't think there were complaints about her sexualization because it was a sense of female strength and pride. Games should try and portray the same freedom, using the option for you to decide how she would look. As I mentioned, I'm deathly ill of the same male macho crap with little diversity. Minorities including women need their place and it is time for them to show pride, strength, righteousness, etc. in media. The alpha male ego nonsense needs to get thrown out the window. Bunch of peckers. Even in a fully geared military game, I would rather see a ponytail sticking out of the helmet. So I guess in a way, maybe I'm the one offended by the so called macho sexualization of male characters. It's been way over done. Real heroes come in all color, shapes, and sizes. So to eliminate all that, we need games to have customization of characters. Maybe a female wants a hunk with scars and ripped shirt showing pecks moving up and down. And maybe a male wants a woman that shows off curves and skin and pecks bouncing. To each their own. Just customize it.
