    Justin11 got a reaction from Withywarlock in Do you think Google will try VR?   
    Google is well-known for their software development than it's hardware or electronic devices venture. I never knew they had google glass that came with mobile phone features until I paid attention lately before getting such information. Even google have laptop brand but not as popular like 'microsoft, Asus, Acer, DeLL, HP etc other popular laptops. I just hope they go into VR and occupy outright position as the best VR equipment company.

    Yeah videogames (and movies) pretty much taught me English at an early age , it also helped me to think outside of the box and come up with solutions that others wouldn't probably think about in the past. As @Justin11 and @Heatman above said it also helped me with my driving skills and reacting skills when driving. I'm also from believe that gaming can be benefitial for your mental health because it's supposed to make you happy

    Justin11 reacted to ForwardSlashDownPoke in How much training do esports players do?   
    I have never played in a tournament where a prize pool is $40 million dollars, so I don't have personal experience with that issue, but I BELIEVE that the $40 million dollars is the pool of prizes that can be won based on who places in what particular position at the end of the tournament; meaning first place could take home X amount of dollars, second place would take home X amount of dollars, and that would all be coming from the same prize pool -- meaning the first place winner would not win a total of $40 million dollars... But so far as I understand: The team who places first in a tournament of something like $40 million dollars is going to win a whopping amount of money (multi-million dollar jackpot) for placing first. I think a team won $18 million at one point.
    But actually, $40 million dollars was the largest prize pool in e-sports history last year. The largest prize pool ever has updated this year, which is for the game Dota 2, with a prize pool of $47.73 million dollars. Based on some of my descriptions in other threads involving possible organized crime and fraud in e-sports, as well as simply incompetent team mates, I don't think I would have a personal interest in engaging in tournaments of that caliber.
    I've pointed out in other threads that the FBI investigated Counter Strike for match fixing in the North American league and it was PROVEN that there was match fixing, with some of the players on a team agreeing in written format to throw matches. Think about playing in a prize pool of $47 million dollars and you have a shot at even taking third in the tournament, but your team mates have been paid off by some crime syndicate (in theory) to throw the match without your knowledge -- making you miss out on something like a personal $8 million dollars.

    One thing with online is that, it saves time and energy. Their is nothing more pleasing to me than sitting at home and making downloads and getting it straightway into my game log, and not moving an inch trying to buy one from offline stores. Infact I don't like much of an ordering this days, i just love to download direct from the game store..

    Justin11 reacted to Withywarlock in Breaking Bad Creator Says He Tried To Make A Video Game Adaptation   
    I'll apologise for the tone of this post as I'm hot and bothered, but not the message. Let's improve the quality of our contributions to this thread, and all others, please.
    I could see this working as a Telltale game given the amount of close calls the characters come to arrest, death or just having identities discovered. It was particularly interesting for Walter 'Heisenberg' White to maintain his civilian identity given he's married, his brother-in-law works in the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and he's a school teacher with one of his students being a meth dealer.
    The problem about the game is that it's done all it needs to do: any other arcs can and will be covered in a spin-off TV show because the Breaking Bad universe is too big to not capitalise on. So what would the game do differently? A fully digitised New Mexico? OK, but that's not going to work with the story of the show. With Jesse Pinkman on the run? What's he going to do that he didn't in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie didn't? We go around shooting people as Mike Ehrmantraut? If he's not old, he's not Mike Ehrmantraut.
    There is a case for a Breaking Bad video game, but the immediate answers are the ones we're not going to get. I bet we'll get something like a Narcos-style game: isometric tactical raids on Los Pollos Hermanos, or a Tropico-style management sim with meth.
    He. Vince Gilligan. It says it in the title of the article and in Kane99's original comment.
    How will it be better by not being a Grand Theft Auto clone? What sort of game would you like to see Breaking Bad adapted into?
    That's pretty much how we got the games we do today. We wouldn't have Roguelikes/lites without Rogue. We'd have no Call of Duty without Doom. We'd have no Elder Scrolls without Ultima. We wouldn't have Grand Theft Auto without the Miami Vice game of '86.
    'Cloning' in this instance does not mean a 1:1 copy; most users here mean 'clone' to mean an open world game set in the Breaking Bad universe, likely with a lot of gunplay and vehicle physics.
    Please could you elaborate on this comment? What makes you think what they "do or do not" "might be an epic or great result?" What is your opinion based upon?

    There are games you can play while sitting down, so you don't need to utilize a full room. But I believe most VR games out there are better suited for a bigger space so you can move around without issue. 
    There are also VR devices that you can step into that makes it easier to walk on, but I imagine that would be extremely expensive. Like the Virtusphere device. It's like a circular cage you can step in to play VR games a bit more easily. Here's their site - http://www.virtusphere.com/ 
    There's no price info available, they require you to email them for that. I bet it's up there though.

    Justin11 reacted to ForwardSlashDownPoke in How much training do esports players do?   
    I was saying this in other E-Sports topics, but financial rewards for tournaments can range from anywhere to a few hundred dollars to a prize pool of $40 million dollars.
    UFC fighters make alot less than people think (it's nothing like boxing); and many people don't train to be the best exclusively for the money. I have, without a doubt, been the best at some games and did not earn a single penny. Not bragging; I'm just saying that the treasure of being the best player on the planet (at a given game) is actually quite invaluable.
    People that train around 8-10 hours daily (not necessarily 7 days a week) are in just about every genre. It's all very sporadic and everybody is different, kind of like weight lifting. Some people can lift real hard like 3 or 4 times a week and make gains, where others prefer 5 days a week literally every week. Alot of people prefer 6 and some prefer training every day. It also depends on if you're still trying to improve, because really great players or athletes can get to a certain threshhold where they only have to train to outrageously hard levels for a certain time, then just keep their skills or body in a maintenance phase where they can slow things back down or speed things back up, if they are (for example) preparing for a tournament in e-sports, or preparing for a World Title shot in the UFC against a very skilled opponent.

    Justin11 reacted to StaceyPowers in Self Centered   
    I am self-centered, in the sense of literally being focused on myself and my life experiences most of the time. If someone tells me a story, the first thing I do is think if I have any relevant experience through which I can understand it. 
    This isn't the same as being selfish though. I just am the literal center of my own universe. It doesn't mean I think I'm the center of anyone else's.

    Justin11 reacted to Kane99 in Your most successful esports bets (and biggest losses)?   
    With esports I feel like there is a lot more risk than say betting on sports or other such things. I feel esports teams are highly unpredictable and guessing who can win is very tough. I personally don't feel the need to bet in esports. Plus there are hackers and cheaters who sometimes get away with it, so I don't want to lose out because of that either. 
    If I do bet on any esports, I would need to study it more to know who is good and bad.

    Justin11 reacted to Yaramaki in Videogame Franchises that outstayed their welcome?   
    What makes you feel like a franchise like Wolfenstein and Mortal kombat have outstayed their welcome? 
    Wolfenstein are still some of the most fun and story driven single player fps out there. In a genre that is dominated by multiplayer games i'd say wolfenstein is a breath of fresh air.
    Mortal Kombat is a franchise i don't know but dare i say it has overtaken street fighter in terms of quality and content. Mortal kombat is more fun to play then ever imo. We have gotten like 3 really good games in the past 11 years, you can hardly say Warner bros is milking the franchise dry or for the matter i've never heard anybody mentioning Mortal kombat needs to die alltogether. Sure during the ps2 area i'd say the franchise was at an all time low and probably should have died then but as it stands today give me more blood and gore lol.

    Justin11 reacted to Kane99 in Standing desk   
    If you're worried about using a standing desk, then I would recommend getting the ones that move up and down. So if you want to sit down, all you'd have to do is hit a switch and it'll move the desk down to a better position to sit down. 
    I think we would get used to standing fairly quickly. As long as you can rest your arms on the desk, I think it could work fine. 
    As well, you don't need to get an actual standing desk. I know there are some lifts separate from the desk you have, so all you'd have to do is put it on your existing desk. Your monitors would go on that portion so that it can move up and down. I was going to buy one before I got my main desk, but decided against it. I think if I come into some more money soon, or better work, I will invest in something like that so I can stand up sometimes while I work.

    For sure, and there are many great games with their own awesome soundtracks. RDR1 and 2 both have impressive soundtracks, and I've often stopped playing to enjoy the music cue. Especially with RDR1, because the music was leaps and bounds better than what RDR2 did. There's some good music there, but RDR1 just hit differently when the music starts. Especially when Far Away from José González boots up in game. Can't get more hyped than that.

    Typically women don't go bald in the traditional sense. If a woman does go bald it's typically if she shaves her head or is a chemo therapy patient. But as for full on baldness, you're not going to see a female Dr Phil.
