  1. With the way the Netflix earnings showed that basically, no one plays the current games, I'm not too sure if they would release an actual game that would be AAA or to current generation standards (if they did, that would seriously put them in the running against Amazon Gaming).
  2. Super excited, I'm also glad that they did the remaster of Tony Hawk (praying they still remaster the other games that were more open world and that you could do some fun stuff in to get into new areas).
  3. If you know there is a big decision in the game that will change it (such as killing off one, etc.) I'd always recommend avoiding the autosave and manually saving it in case you wanted to see the other direction or see how else the story can evolve from various changes.
  4. Cost, timelines, or the fact that very few people would notice the change and it instead lets them spend more time adding features elsewhere (bigger map, more detailed city, etc.).
  5. From where he has come, he's pretty decent. Back in the day, I thought that he was super annoying, but nowadays, he seems more relaxed and laid back since he kind of has fallen into his own grove (rather than trying to make one or find out where he fits in best).

    The game looks really cool, kinda curious if they expand everything out to include other aspects in like DLCs (such as online play, that would be cool lol).
  7. Days, although with many games I have backlogged, I'll play a little of it, and then it'll stay in the case for a while (months, sometimes even a year) before I finally can get to it.
  8. I'll mostly watch people playing games to get an idea of what they are about if they are worth it overall, and the type of game that it is (since some kind of a blend between a few different genres). I don't subscribe to anyone, however.
  9. There are a few I've played (Death Stranding) once you realize in the story that everything has been told a lie (for example). I think that it's honestly expected in some genres since, without it, the game wouldn't really fit within the given genre anymore (ex; Horror games are another good example).
  10. I believe that they can help develop mental aspects since you can start to view things from another view or try to solve aspects that might make you think outside of the box in a sense.
  11. The whole purpose of the boss battle is honestly to make sure that you spent enough time learning skills, and gathering levels, or items that would let you defeat them. I see them as the doors into a new area that is even more challenging, and without the game knowing you can make it over there, it would be an area that you probably wouldn't normally make it through on your own.
  12. Any remaster to a game that I already own, I won't buy. It's not really worth it in my eyes since a majority of remasters are just in relation to better graphics, and maybe a change in some of the voices or other aspects. There isn't really much to sway me to rebuy a game I already own.
  13. It depends, sometimes I'll spend like 30 minutes or so trying to find a hint. If I can't, then I'll look online to save myself time (since sometimes the hint could have been a long time ago or not actually noticeable).
  14. I'd say that it depends on the game, and the content (including online aspects or not). Some games can be played pretty young if you disable online content, or others have it to where you can't really do anything outside of text chat which you can hide away for kids.
  15. Yeah on my PS4 dashboard I don't really have anything outside of games (not even any themes, etc. installed besides the one installed by default).
  16. Have you received it yet? Do you have any other plans for it like changing the backplate colors, etc.?
  17. In terms of design, I'd say the PS4 since it just would blend into other things compared to the PS3 which had a handful of the different design per iteration. In terms of capabilities, PS3 since you could (on the first-gen model) play PS2/PS1 games, and it just had a bunch of other things you could do (boot Linux on it, PlayStation Home was seriously fun if you didn't have a chance to play it), and more.
  18. I'm super excited to see this game, it seems super cool and like a huge open world. I'll honestly be really curious about the usage and playing content when it comes to online play (will everyone see a handful of people they can interact with but then complete their own story, will online have its own story, etc.).
  19. I've shared my Steam & Origin account with my family members (with a 2FA lockdown when it comes to purchasing anything or accessing billing details).
  20. Battlefield 2042. The game looked amazing from the previews, the beta was like any other Modern Warfare beta, but when the game launched, it was completely awful.
  21. For some of the games I play, I get right around 4-6 hours of battery life if I keep the performance settings around High, and brightness only a few ticks above being black (below 50% for sure).

    Gaming on Mac

    I've done a few types of games on my MacBook Pro, but with it being the M1 Pro variant, can't really play that many games unless I sideload Windows (and even then, ARM Windows only).
  23. The more free games they give out, the more you are likely to buy a game or add-on though them (which is where they would make their money back easily dependent on how many you have purchased).
  24. To be far I think Sony phones aren't that great, unless you mean camera specs. Otherwise Samsung is pretty much the king along with other Chinese based rivals.
  25. With all of the side quests, main story, and getting those hidden objects like in the first game - I can easily see how it would be abut 500 hours or so worth of content if done at a normal pace.
