  1. I've got apocalypse fever. My head hurts. Woke up today feeling dizzy. When I went to get something to eat, I just stood there looking inside my fridge and I threw up. I found myself walking around outside and couldn't remember what happened. I started walking and people were running from me. I noticed there was goo all over me. It was pieces of flesh and matted hair. Blood was all over me. I saw a body down the street torn to pieces. I realize then, I've become a monster. All I want is brains. Damn human skin is stuck between my teeth. It's salty like a pig.
  2. Nukes? no. Space shuttles? no. Automobile? no. Human's greatest achievement was the NES. Even aliens marvel at it as on of their world wonders.
  3. Not so bad a game. It's a zombie apocalypse in the forest. Graphics are good. Story is average. Sucks having to keep looking for gas for the bike. Maybe the expectations were too high. I played the game with low expectations and was surprised how easily I got into it. At first I thought it was going to be the racist biker take on the apocalypse, but not the case. It's got some pretty good little towns, outposts, and quarantine zones all destroyed and sprinkled throughout the map. Pretty eerie. I don't know why it had such bad reviews.
  4. The worse part of war is becoming a POW. I don't know of any battles or war in a game that emphasizes torture. So we can throw images around and blow things up. Swing swords or have battle simulations. But it's all impersonal. Best portrayal of war would be the torture involved. You can have 100 tanks rolling and shooting. But it will never say more than lining people up and hacking at them. Whatever war befalls in the near future, you can guarantee Nazis will be involved. Don't get taken alive!!!
  5. We should be expecting hell of a lot from the gaming industry next year and years to come since the new systems are coming out and more people at home. Makes me excited for this new wave. That's if they don't stay stuck in remastering everything when the world needs them to make something new!!!
  6. It's also to get people into the newer systems. But they should have made games compatible like they are doing for ps4 to ps5. But that usually is a trend when there is lack of new creativity or resources. The movie industry has been like that for a while. It's been changing though. Once everything is remastered or remade, they will be forced into their creativity again. It's a cycle. You would think out of any entertainment industry the gaming industry would be thriving due to the pandemic. They haven't pounced on the opportunity. Except for the new systems coming out.
  7. Guess I was a bit rude on that one. All ages have talent. Just not the soul that I prefer to listen to.
  8. Yes, the second one is pretty good too. You should play all 4. Definitely a memorable series.
  9. Me too. I think why the 80's was so good was because so many of the artists were adults when they made music. Today, these punks come out with music before their balls dropped or had their first period. Makes a difference in the soul of music. And back then talent was harvested. Today, talent is getting a good record label push junk. In the 80's, technology in music was booming, mixed with freedom of expression. Today, it's repetitive with peer pressured freedom of expression to fit in. Some are unique of course. But to tailor to the masses instead of the music itself, has made all modern music fall off planet Earth leaving 80's the stand alone best talent.
  10. I love board games! One on one I have to say Chess. More players, I would say Life and Risk. I bought a 4 player chess set for my sister a while back, but never played it. Have to try it one day. I also have Risk on my PS2. I don't really have a least favorite.
  11. It's been one month for me!!! Over 100 posts. I'm catching up @The Blackangel
  12. I would make an apocalypse similar to Tom Clancy Division right at the doorstep of the WH, as an open world spanning across cities and countries. I love when the story progresses to different environments. I like how TLOU took us through the city, woods, suburbs, apartments, hospital, etc. in one story. But I would make it open world, single player campaign, and lots of quests that aren't pointless exp and coin gain. There would be mechanics such as flying jets, tanks, and pretty much everything. Similar to Mercenaries on PS2 100 years later in modern technology. And since I like blades over gunpowder, there will be a balance of both. My apocalypse would be civil unrest and all out factional war. And since war is horror, I will show scenes of torture and the game probably will be banned from showing too much blood and gore.
  13. Have you played it yet? I don't even know what it is
  14. Some games can really stand out and immerse yourself without a good story. If the environment is beautiful and have as much time as I want to explore and pretty much go at my own pace and do what I want, then I can get pretty immersed. Just today I bought a flash drive and saved all my photos I've taken in game. And I'll tell you, later on I'll look back on those photos and have new nostalgia when I'm an old raisin.
  15. All the money they spend on hype, they could have made the game even better. Or else it's all jibberin blabber. Hype better come with a money back guarantee. I've got consumer rights damnit! You lie, I smash. I'll youtube it holding the disc under flames. You got a $million on hype, you better have another $million for lawyers after the people claim falsehood.
  16. The show is still kickin, or twitchin. The Walking Dead World Beyond and The Walking Dead 10th season just started. Fear The Walking Dead starts again next week. New game just came out The Walking Dead Onslaught. Think you can play VR. For me, the show lost itself after Negan when the different communities started building and the main group separated. I got confused and forgot who was still alive after not seeing them most of the season. Still one of my favorite shows.
  17. Wow, that looks like a good series. I just bought book 1 Gardens of The Moon!
  18. I like to stop and savor what I just experienced after reaching a certain point/quest/fight/discovered location/ etc. If not, then for me those experiences will be blanketed over while I have moved on to something else in the game. It's like reading a chapter in a book. But if I'm roaming in an open world, I could play longer.
  19. There are a few ps2 games I want to play, but by the time I set up my ps2 and pick a game, the world would have already ended. Note to self: pick a day to play nothing but classics.
  20. Once I get a taste of the graphics, it's hard for me to go back. I love the realism in exploration. Classics will always have a special place though. I used to drink a lot, don't know why I bring it up, but to make the point that once I reach a certain point, all those newer complicated and technical games just become a buzz kill. Then I pop in a classic like Contra or Golden Axe and go crazy. I've been giving RDR2 another chance and have actually been enjoying it. Still some getting used to. I last played it last night and got frustrated just switching hats. I got the legendary bear hat, and was switching hats, but kept dropping the Civil War hat on the ground and I have to get off the horse to get it like 15 times I did that while bounty hunters show up and I have to take off w/o the hat. Then just restart it again so I wouldn't lose my hat! I caught a mustang and was riding it to a stable when a pack of wolves killed me and all that work I lost the horse even after reloading my last save when I had the horse. All that was last night. But I'm all over the place. One minute I want a space game, then a horror, then a relaxing game, then something with story, then something easy, then exploration, then zombie, then dragons, then tanks, then aliens, then mafia, then AI, then I don't know. I'm playing quite a few very long open world games and I know I won't be finishing them any time soon. So to sprinkle flavor I start other games that are more linear. Just recently started Resident Evil 7 and I plan on finishing around Halloween if I can.
  21. Holy smokes!!! Do your games play well for the NES w/o having to blow on the games a 100 times? Looking at the list brought back all kinds of memories. I have around 150 games for the NES, PS2, PS3, and PS4. I have the old NES that works and the new NES classic edition that has games on it. I have the Sega PS2 game with a bunch of my favorite Sega games, but I count as one game. Mostly play the ps3 and ps4 though which together is around 60 games. Since you like the classics and have a bunch, I would be a crack head running through a pharmacy! Sometimes I think about just writing games on a piece of paper, draw it from a bowl, and play it.
  22. I often stare at my games trying to decide which to play. How do you decide? Do you play whatever you feel or are you more hell bent on sticking to one game and finishing it. I'm all over the place just like in life. Am I indecisive, got ADD or something? I literally have a game in mind, go to get it, and say hmmm.
