    Has anyone gotten refunds yet for their purchases of a Google Stadia and the hardware? It sounds like Google is making things right and they've started to refund some customers for their Stadia hardware purchases. But, they will only refund you if you purchased hardware from the Google Store. Those who purchased the controller through Best Buy will not be refunded. I imagine you'll have to take that up with Best Buy, who probably won't issue a refund. 

    The good thing is, that if you did purchase through the Google store, you should receive a refund before or by January 18th, which is when the service officially ends.

    It's only a couple of days till the Stadia and Google services is completely shut down, I didn't get any of the devices though but I know a couple of my friends who did , I would try to ask them if they've gotten a refund.

    Yeah same, I'm having a hard time thinking of characters that didn't look good. 

    Or maybe the topic is more geared towards video game characters getting their own movies maybe. Kinda makes sense to me. 

    I feel it is something related to video game character design that looked so good when it was revealed but in the actual video game it wasn't looking so good after all.

    I would say The spider Man Miles Morales outfit looks so go on the back of the video game package but it was that good looking in the actual game.

    I myself always used to worry when my laptop or even my PC would kick off with the fan going crazy when I was doing anything heavy. I used to worry that my PC was getting ready to just give up on me because of how hard the fan was pushing itself, after a while I got used to it and realized it was doing what it was supposed to which was help keep my PC cool whilst I was doing things such as gaming. It's nice to have something there even if it's just the fan kicking up to know that your PC is doing something so that you are aware to not do too much and possibly cause it to crash out. 

    This is hilarious, I know how that can be especially when you are aware that something is definitely wrong with your pc that needs to checked.

    It gets to a point when you just completely accept what your pc is becoming and you don't bother about it anymore.

    When it comes to an MMO community, something I always feel it should have is a community of people who will agree and work together as a team to complete the tasks or the task at hand. There is nothing worse than having a group of people in an MMO who don't agree, and you end up with so many problems where it can get quite stressful. Unfortunately, you will always get a few bad apples in MMO's who will make playing the game difficult which is a shame as it ruins it for everyone else. I always say if you can meet and get to know a group of people and build up a community of people who all want to enjoy the game without issues, go for it and do that. 

    That's true, I am not a regular MMO player but I know I have been opportuned to game with some really interesting individuals and we all just one goal which is to have as much fun as we can playing videogames.

    MMO's are supposed to inspire cooperation but sometimes they are just a really unpleasant place to be.

    I often question myself why when it comes to voice overs for characters in a game, they are so limited some of the time. I often sit and go through the voice overs multiple times when I create a character because it's so difficult to choose as there is only so many and I always feel like they lack something, but I can never really put my finger on what. Hopefully one day we can see a better range of voice overs for characters so that there is something more unique for everyone rather than just the usual normal basic ones we sometimes get in games now. 

    Variety is always very interesting and if they can include more voice over options for video game character so that players could choose a more unique voice for their characters, that would completely revolutionize video games character and make them more versatile and realistic.

    I myself hate to take breaks from games unless I really do have to due to maybe burnout or just frustration. The number of games in the past I have started to play and then left part way through and then when I have gone back, I am so lost as to what I was doing or what I had to do, it ends up being off putting and I tend to go away from the game because I left it at an awkward part. I am someone who when I play a game, likes to get in the groove, work my way through the game and just try and complete it in one sitting if I can so that I don't have the worry of forgetting things or the confusion of what I was doing. I hate to start a game and then just not want to go back to it after a break. 

    That has happened to me a few times but usually it is from games where I couldn't get a grip of on my first game play and just had to get off it for some cases I would come back to the game but on others I just completely forget about it.

    Fighting bosses in games has always been my favorite part of any game, especially if it's a new game I am playing and I am on that learning curve of having to work out the best strategy to defeat a boss. The only gripe I have with some bosses in games is that some of them will be so difficult that you can spend hours just trying to defeat them. If they are really difficult and you find yourself playing for hours, trying to work out a strategy that would work but you get more frustrated as you try, I find myself just getting burned out on the game and leaving it. Games that get that sweet spot for a boss are the ones I adore. 

    Some bosses can be unreasonably difficult and I have encountered a good number of them in God of war and sekiro shadows die twice.

    The best part of defeating a boss is the satisfaction that comes at the end when you have gotten to the next level or stage.

    Gaming I have always said is a very expensive hobby but it's one I just love, and it helps me so much not just with earning that extra but also with my mental health. I would say a year I roughly spend around £100 - £200 on games, I tend to wait in most cases for a sale or for somewhere to do it cheaper than say online digitally before I purchase. I don't mind doing it as it's a hobby I enjoy, it's when I purchase a game and it ends up not being as good as I thought, and I feel like I wasted money when I get frustrated. 

    Video games has even gotten more expensive as time went on but that hasn't deterred me from getting a new console or buying whatever video game I feel like playing.

    I think I spend on something related to video games or on video games atleast once a week.

    I really do hate the fact that companies can get away with charging customers full price for a game they already paid for previously just because it's a 'new version' of the game that you already have. I can understand them wanting to make something from a new version of a game but if someone has the original version of the game and they want to upgrade to the new version, they should at least get some kind of discount incentive for that upgrade and not just "nope, pay the $70 or lose out" 

    It's a shame that game developers have let themselves get that greedy and I can only hope in the future things will change in regards to that.

    It been that way for a longer period, a Remake of a video game or even a dlc is sold at a full price sometimes higher than the price of the original version.

    I know game fans would still purchase this video games regardless of the price.

    Yeah you would have to fight them again as many times as it takes and every time you lose not only do they level up, but all of the orcs level up. It's possible the lower level ones off each other too fighting for position. So every time you die, it gets harder and harder to defeat them all. 

    That would be a really good challenge anytime you encounter a boss you had to pay extra focus to defeat them so you don't have to encounter a stronger version of them later on.

  11. I didn't really know much about the Sega Consoles ,I only ever played video games on the Sega Genesis and it was only a few times since I had to visit my cousins once or twice yearly.

    I did enjoy those few times and I did play interesting games on the console.

  12. In GTA you could have your own gang and y'all can go rob a bank or steal from a rival gang together.

    There are some other games like FIFA where players can grant live interviews and they could reply to questions in their own words.

    No that's not what I'm suggesting, I'm stating it as an undeniable fact.  The Atari 2600 was the system that popularised the use of interchangeable cartridges and peripherals which revolutionised the market, but it wasn't the first.  As I mentioned there were several home Pong consoles, the Magnavox Odyssey (which evolved form the "Brown Box" mentioned in the video), the Commodore TV Game, probably more.

    Okay, now I get the difference but it was undeniably one of it's kind when it was released.

    I like the Switch's graphics.  Maybe the leaf definition could be better when it comes to trees, but other than that it's good.

    I do too, I haven't played it on any other platform though so I can't compare it to any other.

    The leaf edition was a massive success in term of  its performance.

    With an obstacle course, as much as there may be clues to help you with the obstacle course, you will have to find the best way around the course yourself. Obstacle courses also don't always have clues and rely on you to solely complete it by trial and error.

    This completely explains what an obstacle course is, you would need to try over and over again with chances of repeating that same obstacle multiple times anytime you fail.

    They both can be really annoying but you get a good feeling if you eventually successfully get through any of them.

    Yes, definitely. I find in video games especially ones where you say have to save things such as money or in game credit for something in the game, I find that much easier to do in the game than I do IRL and I feel that is because, in real life we are having to survive by paying bills, buying food, clothes and all too often you also want to treat yourself as well so with all that you find that it isn't always as easy to save and instead, impulse decisions happen.

    I absolutely relate with this, in videos I am always very intentional about my spendings but that's no same IRL.

    I could just buy things because I feel I might need them later on.

    For me, it really does depend on the game and how eager I am to play the game after purchasing. In most cases I tend to only buy games when I know I will definitely play them so within say a few hours after purchase. I have in the past been known though to buy a game when it's been on sale and it's taken weeks for me to start playing it but I knew if I didn't jump on it whilst it was on sale, I would have missed out.

    I usually purchase video games on impulse, I might just be browsing through steam and come across a video game I feel might be cool so I just purchase it and add it to my backlog.

    I realized I haven't even played some of the games I bought , so now I only purchase video games I Know I would definitely be able to play within the shortest possible time.

    I will admit that I usually do not spend anymore than around 10 minutes on a puzzle before I get fed up and look for a solution online in a game. If I have been unable to solve the puzzle myself I get more and more frustrated if I keep trying so it's better for me to look online by then rather than just keep trying. I will admit though that when I do look online for the solution I feel like I cheated even though I didn't. Anyone else ever feel like this?

    I usually just let go of the entire puzzle if I can but in extreme cases I just get my friend to get past the level for me if they've already played and defeated the puzzle.

    I don't usually feel like it's cheating though.
