    Justin11 got a reaction from Boblee in Ever get bored with your controller?   
    It was boring during my PS2 days, my controllers doesn't last past two weeks, which sees the analog sticks waning off. I know it was cheap to get, but spending that money every two weeks was distorting alot.

    Unfortunately for PS4 users like me, will be missing on this latest TLOU multiplayer game. I wouldn't be pushed hard to go for PS5 either due this game, maybe if I want to test some PS5 games, I can visit my friend that owns one.

    Okay, that's good too.
    YouTube is actually a good platform where you can get views and also prospective scouts who might be interested in your videos and want to see you play professionally.
    Good luck in all you do.

    Arcade racers were pretty much dead in 2008 when you look at similair games at the time like Split/second velocity and blur they all have one thing in common that they were exellent arcade racers but they also flopped salewise, so you can't fault Ea from trying something new i guess. While i don't hate that game as much as you do and had some fun with it, it was clear in 2008 the burnout formula had overstayed their welcome as was need for speed btw should have killed off that franchise when they were at it. My favourite will always be Burnout legends on the psp, don't know why Ea never bothered to port it to modern hardware. 
    The same could be said about the Ridge racer franchise, Namco pretty much killed it with releasing Ridge Racer Unbounded in 2012 a game that had nothing to do with the original ridge racer concept, quite the same as burnout paradise. But Man if i had to choose i'd much rather see a new ridge racer going back to it's roots then a new burnout.
    The only long arcade racer franchise i can think off that still is going strong is need for speed, eventough it has been struggling for an own identity for years. Sometimes i'm wondering why Ea still bothers with need for speed, the whole you vs the cops it's been there done that i guess. Well maybe they should reboot the Burnout franchise for a change! Put a different studio on it with people who were fans of the first games.
    Also outrun 2 (2006 coast to coast) -> best arcade racer ever, come on sega port it to current gen hardware already 🙂

    Three games recently.
    Tales of Arise: On that second playthrough.
    Chorvs: A very promising open wold space combat game with RPG elements that was recently added to Gamepass.
    Rise of The Triad: A bit of nostalgia. An FPS from 1995 I played back in the day. Just picked up on sale from GOG for 49p. It looks like a Wolfenstein clone, but below the surface this is weird game.

    Capcom again, they aren't concentrating on making sequel versions of their RE series, they're now focused on remakes, which will only add few things from the original version and sell it off at same amount which a new game would cost.

    Justin11 reacted to Knight Plug in Resident Evil 4 (Remake) [OT]   
    I think it will be good in general, but I am largely sceptical that, yeah, it's still a cash grab. 
    I don't really care for remakes, because they don't replace the originals. About the only remake that "did" was the 2002 remake, which is basically what the 1996 version couldn't be, because of hardware limitations of the era. But that was a choice for Shinji Mikami to do a remake, from the ground up. With Capcom, they had nobody holding them at gunpoint. It's the money they care about, first and foremost. Meanwhile, we could have gotten a good spin off game, which I'd quite frankly, take over a reimagining.
    The remake of RE3 was absolutely trashed from the moment they worked on it, because whoever developed it, just hadn't a clue what made the original so unique. To be honest, I will be surprised if I ever play that awful game ever again. And I wasn't overly impressed with RE2 either, as BOTH games were as guilty of omitting things. Not having Barry Burton save Jill in Raccoon City was dope, for a start. 
    Feels like most of the pedestrian, ten a penny horror crap that companies make now for a cheap profit. Despite what anyone says, RE2's modern version doesn't hold a candle to the original. Yet if you look online for any reviews from the largest gaming giants, most fanboys say RE2 turned out to be magnificent, while dissing RE3. Hardly makes sense, though, giving how they are just as guilty for removing story aspects, and enemies. So it's kind of stupid to fault one game, rather than point out that they are both flawed. 
    When RE4 arrives, don't be surprised if fanboys defend it to the bitter end. Because I know what they're like, as there's a forum I use for the franchise, called Biohaze. Some of the members are kind of the snobby type. They don't want you saying anything negative about the series, even if it's absolutely truthful. So I normally just don't say anything anymore.

    Assuming what you were actually trying to say was "if you are thinking I'm talking out my ass", my response is:
    Whoa! I Calm down! I never said, or even hinted you we're lying about that. Where the he hell did that come from?
    For one reason or another, I didn't get that you talking about a new, factory sealed copy. Sorry I didn't pick up on that, but it doesn't really change my point. When stores overstock on physical copies of games, they well put the on sale sometimes just weeks later at discounted price when they don't sell to make room for new stock, that was also a common thing back in the day like it is now.

    It would be freaking hell living the rest of my life without videogames. But at $1 billion I might be able to substitute that by real life thrills. But for $10 million? I buy  a home and 5 sports cars, and I'm broke. But if I have $1 billion I could rent a race track every weekend and just play gran turismo in real life.

    Justin11 got a reaction from Boblee in Would you take up video Gaming as a professional job?   
    The rate is bad to me, because the job is so demanding bro. It was 10$ back then to review a mobile game, in which the dev needs people's opinion, to understand where he/she did wrong and improve on it. You'll review the game, write your clean observation of your review, then an administrator will go through your review before paying you.

    RE series is long, they have whole lots of selections to make and continue milking from members. Even if they fail to hit top gear with RE 4, they wouldn't go off like the thin air in the video game world, only critics will follow them.

    What I'm about to post is a case study in why people should look into information that people post on VGR before replying. Not only is it essential to adequately respond to a point given by somebody else, it can even be dangerous not to.
    For starters @Clasher and @Heatman, that car is meant to look like a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, so it's not a Chevy nor a Mustang. It's literally written in the image to the left of the "Muscle Modern" logo.
    Second, that image is lifted from a game is called Forza Street, and again it's right there in the image. The game was an officially licenced Forza spin off for mobile that launched back in 2019 and was shut down almost a month ago (April 11nth). So outside of unofficial emulation, that game doesn't technically exist anymore. If you had looked into this properly and payed attention to the what information was posted, this would have saved some confusion.
    Now @Justin11, you made your post about "Forza Horizon highway 4" , and that is literally how the games title is written on it's official listing on the Google Play Store, without the "H" in Highway capitalised, earlier in the thread about a week after the actual, official Forza game on mobile was shut down. Here it is on Google Play.

    So here it is, with 50,000+ downloads, no user reviews and no ratings. Add that to the weird description that claims to allow users to play 3 main, full Forza games in one place (Those game names were clearly there to generate more search hits), the aforementioned bad formatting on the title (And in the description), the fact that the all four images of the "game" are the same image of an old Suberu Impreza that I don't think is even from a video game, and this is very dodgy. I also checked out the contact email address listed on this very store page it it didn't yield any results. That is really unusual as one would expect such a search to come back with a webpage or social media profile representing the developer/publisher of the game. But no, this was what looks like a randomly generated g-mail account that doesn't seem attached to anything. This is clearly not legitimate, so anyone who had downloaded this game, I'd recommend removing it immediately.
    Now @Clasher, I can understand how you manged to get a screenshot from an entirely different game, especially if you searched for the "Official Forza Mobile Game" or something to that effect, but you replied to this conversion clearly without looking into the subject matter properly. I suggest you apply due diligence in future. They are several reasons to get the facts right when you look into things for a forum thread, avoiding potentially harmful software is just one of the bigger ones.
    Now @Justin11, since I don't trust this so-called "game" and thus am unwilling to download it onto my own phone, I want to tell me what it is and why you have brought it up here on VGR. Send me what you know in a PM. Include screenshots of the actual game if you have them, but DO NOT open it again for my sake. Delete it. It could be malware, ransomware or a phishing scam. It is possible you mistook this for an official Forza mobile game, and if so, I again would recommend you delete it from your devices immediately and would recommend greater vigilance in future for yourself as well.
    This kind of false advertising and fake products are a common thing in the mobile market. I urge people to use thier good sense and not trust anything that looks out of place. I also urge everyone to look into what people are posting about in detail. They may not be deliberately trying to bring you on board to a scam, but it is possible they were fooled themselves. Do not put up links or promote software unless it's from a source you trust. As mods', it's our responsibility to make sure that people on VGR remain safe. If that means we don't trust software that you do, then that's our prerogative. If you have doubts, bring the names of games or links you want to post to us first and well assist in any way we can to verify them.
    I hope you have all learned something from this.

    I do watch soccer from time to time but i'm more interested in watching highlights of games then actual matches. I also follow formula one but those are just the races.

    Our bulldog decided the previous one was a chew toy. She also destroyed several of our cartridges as well. The games we lost were Dead By Daylight, Mario Odyssey, Paper Mario Origami King, Skyrim, and South Park The Fractured But Whole. I didn't like South Park, so I'm not missing that one. But the others have me a bit pissed off. That's a lot of money to replace them. @Rain Dew enjoyed a couple of them as well, so we need to get the cartridges instead of DDL, so that we can both play it. If it was different, I would just buy them as DDL's but she wanted them too.
    I already have 123 DDL's. I would prefer to have a few physical copies of some games. In total we had 23 carts, but now we're down to 18.
