    Reality vs Adventure got a reaction from Dismal_Bliss in Avatar Video Game Gets Gorgeous Launch Trailer   
    I got the ps5 and Avatar!!! This is the most beautiful game I have ever seen. All the amazing colors and wildlife. I haven't encountered any bugs yet which is good for such a new game. I think I have found a new favorite game. Just started playing so I can't say much more. But it is way beyond what I expected. It will make your jaws drop.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Kane99 in What was it like seeing people play video games for the first time?   
    We all know what went through our minds when we all were introduced to video games, but has there ever been a time where you got to experience someone elses first experience with a video game? Maybe it's your child, or someone you're dating, or maybe a family member who was never into video games finally taking their first stab at it. 
    Anyway, what was it like to experience video games through someone else? For me, seeing my nephew get into video games has been a joy. Mainly because we can game together, but to see from his side how he got into gaming, was cool, because it kinda brings me back to my childhood when I first started gaming. 
    What about you?

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to The Blackangel in What game would you recommend to a new gamer?   
    When was Super Mario on Sega? The rivalry between Nintendo and Sega was so fierce that there's no way Nintendo would have leased their mascot game to their rival.
     
    Now to answer the thread question, I would have to know what gen and platform they're starting off on. I wouldn't recommend anything that goes too in depth. Meaning I would leave most AAA games out at the time. I would integrate them in slowly with what their interests are and go from there.

    Reality vs Adventure got a reaction from Dismal_Bliss in What are your thoughts on AI? Does it worry you?   
    One of the concerns for AI is that it can be programmed. Programmed? For AI? Oh, but I thought AI was a form of intelligence that can think for itself. Think about that. Seriously think about that. What I'm about to say is critical in what makes AI and what doesn't make AI. Are you guys ready? Ok then, let's put AI to the test. Elon Musk created an AI for his X platform called Grok...
    Musk wasn't happy about Grok because he thought it was too woke. Yeah, you heard that right, Musk created an AI too woke. So Musk then complains about his own AI creation, and now is reprogramming his AI to promote hate speech. So Musk is indoctrinating his AI????????????????/
    Yeah mother fuckers. You heard that one right.

    Reality vs Adventure got a reaction from Dismal_Bliss in Elon Musk gets mocked for saying violent games are bad   
    I'm glad you appreciate my apology, but I still don't think you understand that Musk puts himself in the spotlight for a reason. If you are Insinuating his actions are only innocent, knowing he has the biggest microphone in the world, is quite shady on your part. 
    I don't think you really do appreciate my apology. Because instead of admitting Musk had a political purpose, you assume that he is just an innocent man, with a big voice on X, and everyone is out to get him on the spotlight. To feel bad for the guy for never being able to express himself...Well, he fucking has expressed himself and is losing advertisers over it for his antisemitism. I really don't think you can ever quite grasp who Musk really is. 
    And we are back to square One.

    I understand. I actually like @Dismal_Bliss and I think he's an intelligent man and has great gaming insight. So I'm sorry @Dismal_Bliss I took it to a personal level which was unfair. As far as the topic goes, I will say it's also unfair for Musk to blame a game for police violence and try to inject a false theme in the game long before any release date, all due for one reason only, and that reason was exactly a political motivation by Musk.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Shagger in Matthew Perry has died at age 54. A new Fallout New Vegas Mod Pays a Touching Tribute   
    For a kick off, I understand how late this is, but at the Matthew died on October 28th 2023, the forum was problems and I was unable to post this topic. I post it now because I figured it's better late than never. There is another reason that I ill get to in a moment, but first, to the main point.
     

     
    So, as I assume most of you know, Matthew Perry passed away earlier this year. Most people will know Mathew Perry as Chandler in the famous 90's/2000's sit-com Friends, but he was also one of us. A geek and a gamer who even voiced Benny in Fallout New Vegas not for a pay check, but because he loved the franchise. We have lost one of our mainstream heroes, a gamer in the limelight who was dedicated to making the art we love be taken seriously. RIP, Matthew.
     
    My second reason for posting this now this is explained by this video:
     
    A new mod called For Matty - A Tribute to Matthew Perry has been created by modder tunnelsnakesfool. The mod adds Benny's Suit, a grave in the Goodsprings Cemetery, a Friends themed re-skin of Benny's pistol "Maria" named "My Friend" and a note featuring a quote from Mathew Perry himself.
     
    Very sweet mod and a great tribute.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Ravenfreak in Elon Musk gets mocked for saying violent games are bad   
    Honestly he deserves to be mocked, it's a game it's not real. The hateful posts he allows on his platform are real, and do real damage to minorities. He's just jumping on this bandwagon to get more brownie points from the right who oppose violent video games, especially ones like GTA. He's probably a person who puts the blame on violent media for how certain people act when video games do not cause violence.

    Reality vs Adventure got a reaction from Dismal_Bliss in Alex Jones' New Video Game Is More Unhinged Than You Could Have Imagined   
    Maybe it’s a puzzle to you, but this is about a conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, proven wrong in the courts who intentionally made a kill all liberals and gays game, as opposed to GTA, which is a game series that has been 10 years since their last game. And the only asshole with the privilege to play the new game is the richest fascist in the world, who gets the privilege to play the game before anyone else and politicize it years before even being released. So who has the agenda? Who is your puzzle? Your man Musk is. He’s the only privileged mother fucker who is trying to politicize a game 2 years before its release.

    Musk is trying to act like he cares because he's in deep doodoo for his role in spreading hate on his platform and engaging in antisemitism. He's looking for a right wing talking point to deflect from himself and his social media and blame some other form of entertainment as the culprit for violence. He's attacking whomever/wherever to rally his peeps, his social media hate speech peeps. Video games are usually the go to in order to deflect from some other violent issues. Musk is that issue now and his promotion of hate on X. 
    Another thing to point out is that Musk has no room to talk about violence while he tortured monkeys in his Neuralink experiments and allows widespread racial discrimination at Tesla, which both of these instances are being investigated. 
    Musk is just trying to sound like the good guy now all of a sudden while he is currently on his Apology Tour, where he had to go kiss up to Israel after his remarks. I expect Musk to now go and incite more violence against woke and the LGBTQ community, now that he thinks he is gaining favor from the police, trying to sound like he is morally superior after company ads are ditching his toxic waste dump site. Everything about Musk now is a political calculation, with evil intent.

    I don't even know what to say with this. The level of hate someone has to have to make a game entirely anti LGBTQ littered with far right conspiracy theories attacking the media, medicine, and just every lame far right talking point, with superman Trump while you kill a nazi dragon. Which is ironic because the far righties are the actual nazis. And Jones keeps hating on gays while throughout the game he keeps saying 'I'll eat your ass." lol. I mean, it's usually the ones who scream the loudest attacking gays are actually in the closet.
    The link to the article I do agree with this statement, 
    "And of course, his defenders would undoubtedly argue that violent video games are just games—they aren’t going to turn anyone into murderers. Personally, I would agree with that. But considering how much time the right spends trying to ban books because they’re afraid they’re going to turn kids gay, it might be time for them to pick a lane."
    The take home message, it's a hate filled game, but if this game doesn't make you want to go out and kill people, then books won't make you turn gay. And Elon Musk in another topic on VGR where he played the new GTA 6 and complains about violence against police. So which is it here? We're getting mixed signals from the far righties. Does this incite violence against gays or not? Does another game incite violence against police or not? Do books turn you gay or not? If it were gays killing a bunch of republicans, would they then want to ban the game and declare the LGBTQ as terrorists? I bet they sure would try like the cry baby hypocrites they are who believe in rights for me but not for thee. 
    And Alex Jones himself is nothing but a dangerous quack who lost his money in lawsuits for spreading conspiracies that mass shootings in schools were faked. Fucking idiot. And then he goes and spreads this nonsense.

    This is so bad it's cringe. It's funny, these people think that the left are snowflakes but then they get upset when they're "freedom of speech" is "taken away" when they post controversial posts about harming other human beings on a platform that has guidelines and rules that everyone needs to follow. I know social media moderation can be a joke at times though... They get so upset that they make a video game that depicts harming minorities because they know they can't do this in real life without getting arrested.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Ravenfreak in How fast will GTA V online lose players once VI drops?   
    I think it won't be as quick as when people dropped IV for V, since V has been active for over a decade at this point. Many people have invested in tons of time and money to the game, and probably will stick around a bit longer when VI drops. Heck, it wouldn't surprise me if there's still a good dedicated playerbase for years to come until Rockstar decides to pull the plug on V's servers. They know it'll still bring in good money, which is why they waited so long to actually reveal VI.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Shagger in What games do you enjoy playing?   
    IMO, Cyberpunk is a style of visuals and setting rather than a genre. The colourful, rebellious, self indentified identity of punk with futuristic, sci-fi elements. It's like not like video games are the only expressions of cyberpunk. For example there are several movies, like Tron and The Running Man that I'd describe as cyerberpunk as well.
     
    In terms of games, and as you've shown, first person games seem to be a popular choice with this aesthetic in recent years for reasons I can't quite figure out. But still, I have seen RPG's, FPS's, side scrollers and even racing games with that aesthetic theme. There are limits, it's not like all genres suit the aesthetic. Horror is one that strikes me as one that really wouldn't work. 
     
    But that's not the point. Cyberpunk is an art style. An art style that suits some types of games and stories more others, but an art style none the less.

    I DO play Assassins Creed. AC3 is what initially got me into the series. Just because there’s one that I haven’t gotten to yet doesn’t mean I don’t play the franchise. I haven’t played every Zelda game, but I still play the hell out of the series. I haven’t played every entry in the Dark Pictures Anthology yet, but I still love it.
    So just because I don’t rave about it all the time doesn’t mean I don’t play it.

    Reality vs Adventure reacted to Knight Plug in Konami to begin The Silent Production Team...   
    Well, I recall they had a showcase a little over a year ago, where they announced three games to be outsourced, had a series of vague trailers, and talked about each one briefly, plus a new movie and online interactive series. They are still awaiting release, with the exception of Ascension, the interactive show which started a few weeks ago. That's already available to join, but it is universally hated.
    I think their next goal is to make games with their own team, so their projects will probably be very far off.

    I'm confused here about who all are involved. Isn't Bloober Team the developer making a silent hill game? Isn't Konami a developer? I thought they lost their marbles or something. So is this two different developers working together on one game?

    Definitely something to keep an eye on to see where things go. The fact that his sons are already reacting pretty paranoid tells you that they know things are going to get bad.
    The fact Trump tries to dumb down everything making out it is not as bad as the news are making it to be is not shocking if I am honest, he has always been that kind of person who when he does something it is not that bad but if someone else does it, they should be brought down instantly.

    Of course, that is what he does--deny, blame, and threaten. In this case he actually already admitted to his wrong doing. He posted in all caps on social media that what he did was a good thing because he paid his loans back and the banks got paid, which is ironic because he's filed for bankruptcy like 6 times. The thing is, over inflating his net worth to get better loans with lower interest is against the law. It's cheating the system. It allows the rich privileged to get way better rates than others. And no doubt he under reports his worth on his taxes. Trump Organization has already been found guilty of tax fraud. But you are right, his people don't care. They don't care about a thing he does. They are a morally broken society who honors corruption. 
    This is such a huge blow to the Trump family. And it's such a big relief for New York to get rid of all that toxic orange waste out of their city and state. I wonder if his Mar a Lago resort is legit in Florida. Trump's sons are already reacting pretty paranoid about it.
