  1. I prefer forums over blog posts/comments. I feel a forum is more personal and more 'connected' between users. It allows you to build up a community where people can meet new friends and such. For example, I met @Shortie861nearly 10 years ago on a forum, we are now in a relationship and have been for 4 years now. 🙂 So while it's rare, you can even find love on a forum, can't really have that sort of experience over a blog.
  2. I use canned air on it a couple times a month. It being a laptop I try to keep it dust free as often as possible. 🙂

    World of Warcraft?

    Any WoW players here? I haven't played since 2012 or so, but I have a lot of friends that are getting back into it and i'm itching to do the same. I might buy the latest expansion and jump back into it for awhile. Have you ever played World of Warcraft? Do you enjoy these types of games which are MMORPGs where you can meet up with friends and go on quests together?
  5. What's your favorite controller of all time? I'm finding the Saturn controller extremely comfortable but I have to say my favorite controller of all time is a tie between the Sega Dreamcast and the Xbox One controller in terms of comfortability. I think the xbox one elite controller wins hands down as the best controller i've ever used. 🙂 What's your favorite controller of all time?
  6. I don't really shop at gamestop anymore, the only'used' games I buy from them now are their retro selection online. So games for my Saturn & Dreamcast mostly, because if there is anything wrong with the discs or they don't run on my console, I can return them to my local gamestop store for a full refund. Yes they are more expensive than buying some of these titles off ebay but you get the ease of mind knowing that if anything is wrong with any of them, you can simply return them to the store and get a refund. Which is a lot easier than chasing an ebay seller down for a refund and having to return the item via shipping it back, etc. 🙂
  7. I usually bought physically because of Best Buy's Gamers Club Unlocked saving me 20% off new games, but honestly, i'm kinda beside myself with it now because GCU is going away once it expires for me in May of next year. I've been buying more digitally now at least this way my girlfriend can access any digital games I buy as her xbox is set to my home xbox. So any games I purchase/download, she automatically has downloaded to her xbox. 🙂 So in the end, digital is actually saving me more than something like GCU was doing as I only have to buy 1 copy of games now. 😄
  8. Which E-Sports team is your favorite? There's clans like FaZe, Rise Nation, Cloud 9, Team Kaliber,Optic Gaming. Which do you support? For me, i've always been a tK guy. I like their sense of 'family' they got within their organization and even towards those that are no longer with their organization, they still treat them as though they are part of their 'family'. Plus I find Kosdff to be pretty hilarious at times. 😛 Which big E-Sports team do you support?
  9. This game is definitely one that's on my radar. I remember the original classic Forsaken from PSone and I really like to give this remaster a try. 🙂 I'm really happy to see all these old PS1 era titles being remastered in some capacity. It really brings back memories from my childhood. So far we've gotten Crash N-sane trilogy, We're getting Spyro 1,2 and 3 remastered in November and now Forsaken is remastered. I'm curious to see which games devs will remaster next. 😄

    Xbox One X

    Do you own an Xbox One X? I upgraded to a One X when I moved into a different living space and got a new tv for said living space. I'm absolutely loving the added benefits in speed and visuals the One X provides. The upgrade isn't too noticeable if you're on a One S but honestly if you're going from a regular Xbox One to a One X it's definitely worth the upgrade! Do you own an Xbox One X? what do you think of it?
  11. tarting gaming as soon as I was old enough to hold a controller which was 2. 😛 Been gaming for 26 years now 😄 No signs of stopping anytime soon either! 😄
  12. What old consoles do you own? do they still work? For me I still own: Sega Dreamcast Sega Saturn (Just got this recently) Sega Genesis Model 2 NES top loader (model 2?) Gamecube PS1 (Fat model) N64 and many more. All consoles as far as I know are sitll functioning as intended. 🙂 Do you own any classic consoles still that you dig out and play from time to time?
  13. The Tenchu series would be great for a reboot! I would also like to see a proper Parasite Eve 3 and perhaps a new Dino Crisis game 😄
  14. Have you tried coldbooting/hard resetting your xbox? Hold down the power button on your xbox until it powers off than turn it on agian and when you see the green Xbox One splash screen it'll have cleared your system's cached memory and it should fix the issue for you. Doing this fixes 90% of xbox issues in my experience.
