  1. Legend of Drizzt series by Salvatore is gonna hit on something big one day. Game, tv series, or movies. The book series has been going for 30 years now. Here is my 5 dollar bet it's gonna be big. Hope Salvatore is alive when they finally take on the task.
  2. For sure. That first season is a hall of famer. Drama at its finest. You got tear constipation? Play that first season.
  3. They say bad seed never dies. Every now and then, one falls through the cracks. There's a lot of abusive fuckers out there that need to fall through those cracks.
  4. More realistic maps that you can zoom in pretty close. You can do that on google maps, why not video games? And show details in terrain and weather. At least in AC you can call an eagle to soar over everything, so I guess you wouldn't need detailed maps there. So maybe games should start including birds you can call to fly over the land. And characterize the bird, or dragon, or flying monkey, or even a drone.
  5. Mr X in Resident Evil 2 remake was memorable for me. I didn't like it very much. In Resident Evil 7 I just started playing, has someone chase you, but it just works to scare the living S##T out of me!!! As far as creative, there are a number in Witcher 3. Leshens are pretty cool. Part tree, with antlers, skull face, and uses forest animals to attack you. Volatiles in Dying Light will make you run for your life at night. Or find a hiding spot till morning if you can't make it to a safe zone. They got my blood pumping a number of times.
  6. Are the newer Batman and Superman games good? I'm not a fan, but if the game is good why not? They have good reviews.
  7. There is the Witcher tv series from the game. But I don't know if there was a book out even before the game. I can't think of a movie based on a game that didn't have a book first except for Resident Evil and I think Silent Hill. Games that came from movies are many. Producers think fans of the movie will automatically like the game, so they usually half ass it for the young crowd. Alien Isolation seems like a good game taken from a movie. I plan on playing it. The Warriors on ps2 I thought was pretty cool, taken from the classic movie The Warriors. "Warriors, come out to play!" Warriors, come out to playeeaay!!!
  8. That wasn't a debate. It was one rude baby that kept interrupting everybody because he is a narcissistic asshole. The moderator needs to have them agree that if a person interrupts, that time will be taken out of their 2 minute answers. If they interrupted for a minute, next question he would have 1 minute to answer. And if the big baby still can't keep is lying hole shut and let anyone else talk, then the moderator should stand up and walk over to trump and tell him to be quiet like you would a child on public live tv. Trump knows he is in trouble and his plan is to silence Biden the best he can. That's all he can do. Trump was given the opportunity to denounce white supremacy right then and there, and he couldn't. He just couldn't do it!!! I think Americans finally raised an eyebrow after that.
  9. Every game needs a female character to choose from. I'm sick of the same ol macho tuff man who is the biggest and baddest asshole or the perfect handsome white boy who is always the righteous. I choose female every time. Days of male pride are over and needs to be humbled.
  10. AC Odyssey, I had a lion who fought with me through everything. Major battles, skirmishes, skilled mercenaries, and went on travels with me. It was always there. All them pics I took. All the moments together. Then I was on some castle walls up in a mountain. I jumped off and the lion jumped after me and died. After all that, I wanted it to have a glorious death, but followed me off the edge. I was heartbroken. I don't know if I can ever love such a wonderful beast again.
  11. That kind of reminds me of the movie 'The Hunt' which is about liberals kidnapping conservative deplorables for sport. The movie had to be postponed from being released due to the political climate in the USA. BUT it was eventually released around a year later with the same political climate if not worse. And did anyone act on it and kidnap deplorable conservatives? No. I for one would love to watch it and I fantasize about torturing an American republican in every way if I ever catch one of those low lifes. Am I gonna do it? No. My point is that nobody acted on a controversial movie. So @Shagger point is correct. Then again, society as a whole fears the impact entertainment can have. Especially during some kind of crisis. Having anger and then influenced to act on it does not necessarily mean a person has a mental disorder though. To exploit that anger could lead to a societal breakdown, which was part of my point in my first post where I said any entertainment can be a tool to incite violence.
  12. Picture yourself in the mountains, in a forest, by an ocean or lake, in a valley. Picture the stars at night reflecting off of ancient golden or silver armor. Picture the sun setting with all the different hues playing tricks behind every leaf falling, every branch swaying in the breeze. Picture the sun shining bright while sailing through a Mediterranean Coast. Hop out into the water and swim to the beach. Call your horse and gallop into the waiting forest. Wonder aimlessly. Find a fishing village and see their catch of the day. Watch them work and immerse yourself in their culture. Hop on a smaller boat and cruise the coast line. It’s starting to rain. The lightening flashes in and out of clouds. Go back to your main boat and set sail to another island. Call your eagle to soar high above. See everything from high up or swoop low to check out an ancient temple or ruin. Just let yourself go while you soar up high again and let the landscapes open before your eyes. Let the music play. Take pictures. Lots of them. You can move your camera around any direction. Take off all the armor and show that skin in a small two piece if you desire a beautiful woman or ripped muscles if you like men. The sun is rising again. Where do you want to go next? Trek through an entire country on a beautiful steed. See where it takes you. Assassins Creed Odyssey
  13. I think I see what you are saying. A person has the ability to know right from wrong and not commit an act of violence even if some hidden agenda is being pushed through whatever entertainment source it is. And so the blame falls onto the entertainment source if something happens and not the real culprit pulling the strings. Well I'll be! Let me put this here straw hat on my face and stand in a corn field till the crows come lickin.
  14. Dying Light is the best zombie apocalypse game I ever played. Not sure if I call it a shooter game because you mostly acquire other weapons to smash and chop them with; burn, electrocute, explode, poison; and in the Following expansion, run them over in a buggy. The apocalyptic environment is beautiful in the middle of a city. There were so many things to do in that game. Tons of quests. Run for your life to a safe zone once night hits. Beat the game, and still have quests to finish. The Following expansion is in the country side. I can't say enough that if you like zombie games, this one is a must!!! I came across it on youtube. Looked pretty amazing then, and pleasant surprise it was. There is a prison quest in the game you can repeat as many times you want. It is total hell. You can even play as a zombie in the enhanced edition that includes The Following. Dying Light 2 is coming out soon. Probably going to be on the ps5.
  15. For those that play video games I might have confused: no, what I said is not happening. No, it is not a conspiracy. My only point to make is that all entertainment can be used as a tool to incite violence if fallen into the wrong hands. That’s it. Bada bing.
  16. People on here get mad way too easy. What I said is worst case scenario. Doesn't make it not a possibility. And simply denying anything outrageous to be possible is exactly how things become possible.
  17. Any entertainment tool can be used to cause violence. Randomly violent video games do not cause a person to act in violence. Add in something very political and dominate almost every game with that political intent, then yes, the sheep will follow suit and act in violence. Imagine living in an isolated country where everything you see or do is controlled to make you see things a certain way. In a violent certain way against opponents. There will be violence. Now take a teen who may not watch movies, news, or listen to music. They play video games. The controlling government has to reach that target audience as well before they can become the opposition. To reach that youth, all the video games relay a certain violent message. Those individuals likely will become brainwashed like everyone else and act in violence against any perceived threat they were taught to act upon. So in an open market video gaming world, no. Video games are not the cause of somebody's violent act. In a closed authoritarian regime gaming world where the government is actively involved in manipulating your thoughts and producing tailored gaming, yes. ANY entertainment tool can be used to incite violence for political purposes. Not just one game out 1000. Not 5 games out of 100. ALL games the government has made and released just for you with political violent flavor to indulge yourselves everyday. And if you were the opposition and didn't like the games, spoke aloud, I'm sure your peers would send you to the hospital after school.
  18. I don't think anyone is smart enough to remake a good Contra. Just like Gi Joe, they keep making new ones for a baby audience. Contra was my favorite games on Nintendo. And Golden Axe, oh watch out. Let's see em try.
  19. Looks like No Man's Sky Origins was just released 4 days ago Sept. 23! Wow, talk about timing. I'm a little confused though. Is Origins the update after installing any new disc? Or do I buy the disc with it already updated. It looks like they still have several updates planned. It's definitely got my interest. Think I might wait a little longer to see how it goes.
  20. I miss levels!!! Not many modern games have levels to pass, then go on to another one with a different atmosphere. Today, we level up abilities instead. I miss the simplicity of controllers. You pop in the game and start playing. Today, you have to remember what buttons do what. In sports, you just play. Today it can take an hour to look at stats, build team, call plays. Back then you don't run out of ammo or have to fix gear or nurture your animal. In one hour you could have done a lot of gaming back then. In one hour today, you could dump some weight in your inventory, look at map to see where you are and need to go, choose a quest, choose a new ability, upgrade a weapon, then start playing. After you hit the wrong button and gave yourself the rarest healing potion, you got to restart the game again at latest save file. Hour up? Now you are ready to play. Fuck it, now it's time to go outside.
  21. I'll be damned if trump is playing a video game while China collects data from it. I think Russia has already tapped that ass.
  22. More like American southern jack accent.
  23. When you are in isolation you find out who is demon possessed. Some people have deliberately put their fingers all over my food, rim of cups, etc as if they think they could contaminate it. It is true. Be very observing and you can witness dirty intentions. Could literally be attempted murder. Has a person come around you haven't seen in a while and act as if they try to breathe on you? Does your spouse touch a dirty door handle and immediately make an excuse to touch your face? Yep. The demons are awakened.
  24. It's cause us heer Americans aw soo special and we take aw pride in being soo different than you rugby luvas. We aw betta den you!
