    I wish I could exercise. I miss going for a run, lifting weights (yes girls do lift weights), or even doing a pushup. Now since the MD has taken a complete hold of my life, the most strenuous activity I can do is climb in and out of the shower. And I have to have a shower chair or sit on the floor.😢

    But the thing I miss the most, is going out into the woods for an all day hike. I would give my life and my soul to be able to do that just one more time.

    Please forgive my ignorance but what do you mean by MD?


    I think that's fantastic that you've taken initiative and recognize that you need to care of yourself. I haven't joined the gym but I have made it priority to work in better nutrition and exercise more. 

  1. When given the opportunity I definitely prefer docked due to a bigger screen and better sound. I do find myself using it more often as a handheld device though usually while my toddler sleeps. I love having the option of doing either.

    Unfortunately, none.  I still need to get a gaming console.  Well, I guess I could get some cheap Wii or Wii U.  However, I've been holding out for The Switch.  Anyway, I'd like to win trophies on Mario Kart and beat any of the new Donkey Kong or Mario games.

    You should definitely get a Nintendo Switch when you can! I don't think you will regret it. I love playing the old school games like Donkey Kong or Super Mario but I also enjoy games like Mario Kart and Animal Crossing. 

    I can relate though, I haven't finished any games but maybe 2022 will be the year I work in gaming as part of my regular past-times. We shall see!

  3. Not typically. It was sort of understood that my parents didn't have a lot of money and unless it was a necessity we've learned to never really ask for anything major like a gaming system. I remember asking my brothers for video games (PC) growing up which now thinking back I didn't really appreciate as much as I should have. Whenever I wanted the newest expansion of The Sims, or if there was a new Playstation game my brothers would hook me up. I usually got their hand me downs but they always did get what I wanted when I asked. For my parents, they supported our hobbies in general but yeah I don't remember us asking for gaming consoles specifically. 

  4. A friend of mine has invited me again to play Ark but I just don't have the bandwidth (timewise) to play video games at the moment. From what I understand it is one of the games that require time to progress. It does sound like a lot of fun, living off the land and trying to survive. Does anyone here play this game? Have you heard of it?


  5. I read an article earlier that Splatoon 3 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch next year. I haven't played the first or second Splatoon games despite the games being really popular. From what I understand that it's a really fun multiplayer game. Have you played any of these games? Are you look forward to the next release?


    I must say that the technology sounds intriguing particularly the part about the fitness concept, where you could have it so the fitness instructor appears to be in the same room as you. I can't help but make the association between the movie Gamer and this technology. How far will people take this? Will more people become home bodies and choose to really not leave their house since virtual reality will allow the to socialize and do activities without even getting out of their pajamas if they so desire? Mind blowing really. 

  7. I started to feed into my obsession for the Final Fantasy XV game. I purchased the official guide along with the expansion packs. I came really close to buying the characters action figures but haven't pulled the trigger on those yet. Had I only the place to display them I probably would have but knowing me I would want a dedicated space for them and I'm just not ready to pay the money to do all of that yet! 

    How about you guys? Do you have a particular game or franchise that you go out of your way to collect memorabilia, merchandise, etc from?

    The modern consoles emulating the games are nice, but there is something to be said for playing classic games on classic hardware, that little extra nostalgia.

    I completely agree, the nostalgia is such a great feeling to experience. I imagine one day I may have a dedicated game room featuring classic consoles. That probably won't be closer to retirement though. 

  9. Technically my very first console was the Gameboy. Many hours of my childhood was spent on that thing! I was literally attached to the wall because my parents were tired of buying AA batteries for me. 

    The console after that was the Sega Genesis - played games like The Lion King and Aladdin. I also remember playing the game Zoom! with my cousins, that was so much fun!

    I have tried it out through the Xbox Game Pass and it's quite a fun game. And that was by myself as well. I'm sure the game would be even better with some friends and other people there to help you out with the game. I love the games aesthetic as well.

    Oh wow! I hadn't realized that this support multiplayer that's really cool! I agree that the games' aesthetic is very nice. How do you feel about the storyline? I may end up putting this title on my Christmas list. lol 

  11. I have not played it before. I do love Final Fantasy XV and still go around completing quests, fishing, and hunting down new recipes just for fun. I'm only able to play in 20-30 minute increments for sessions so I'm afraid to spend the money on the expansion at this time. 

  12. Knowing me I will probably still pay for it especially if my friends and family are hopping on board as well as we play games together. At the end of the these are businesses trying to please their shareholders to continue to offer products for the public. It's a crazy business balance that they're trying to maintain all the while trying to generate a profit to pay to gain and retain employees. I don't mind paying if I can justify the cost based on how many hours of entertainment I can get from it. 

  13. There's something very relaxing about doing familiar things in a game. I wouldn't want it to be exactly the same because yes that would be boring. However, if it's a farming game for example, as long as the quests ask for different types of crops that would be just enough change to keep it interesting I think! I think that's why I enjoy playing Farm Together so much (it has a fantastic music score, so relaxing) the graphics are nice, the gameplay is simple and it helps me unwind mentally. :)

    What do you mean?  It's an offline game, or it was "back in the day".


    In all seriousness I was never that big a fan but I could see it's appeal.  Now though, mutch like FIFA and Madden, it's just an increasing experiment on how much EA can push their greed.

    When life was simpler and I literally had summers where my friends and I would take turns for hours at the computer designing homes and completing achievements. I remember when my childhood friend came over with the original Sims game and I was absolutely blown away by the concept. It was like having a pet but it was a simulation of a person... wow typing that out sounds weird hahahaha I remember we would take pictures and create stories using the Sims characters we developed. It was so much fun but I can't imagine sinking that much time into a game now. 

  15. Sometimes I am tempted to dive back into this fantastic game and I'm always looking at the great deals with expansion packs. It's just a massive time suck and as fun as it is I simply don't have the bandwidth to play like I did back in the day. I have yet to design an efficient tiny house - it's been one of my Sims lifetime goals haha

    Does anyone here still like to play The Sims?

    Halo Infinite's campaign mode has officially gone "gold" ahead of its launch in December. During a livestream broadcast on Friday, community director Brian Jarrard confirmed this.

    Gold means development on the game is officially finished. For Halo Infinite, this means physical releases are being prepared for launch and Microsoft is getting the game ready for a digital release.

    "That basically means we're locked and loaded. The campaign is in the tubes and on its way to players around the world," Jarrard said. He also confirmed that Halo Infinite will see a global simultaneous launch worldwide, starting at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on December 8, and shared an image during the showcase that confirms when the game launches where you live.


    I think it's safe to say that Halo Infinite will be the game of the year! It's not a surprise as the franchise has always had diehard fans. I hope it's a successful launch and that everyone is happy with the game!
