  1. I thought the whole thing was scrapped months ago?
  2. I have a few entries here. One was in Blaster Master on NES. The writers of the game decided to be sneaky as hell with the entrance to level locations. The entrances to levels 2 and 3 are simple enough. You find the entrance to level 2 in level 1, and the entrance to level 3 in level 2. Stands to reason you would think the entrance to level 4 would be somewhere in level 3. Nope. It's hidden way back deep in level 1. It's in an area that's inaccessible until after you beat the level 3 boss. And unless you're lucky, you would never have noticed anything in the entire area but empty sky. Finding that was pure dumb luck. Another was in Legacy Of The Wizard. Your objective is to collect 4 crowns to awaken a dragon so you can kill it. I remember finding the first crown 30 years ago. I was over the moon. Now 30 years later, I HAVE STILL ONLY FOUND THAT ONE SINGLE FUCKING CROWN! UGH! Obtaining every mask in Zelda: Majoras Mask was a real achievement. Some were easy enough, and others were a true bitch to get. But in the end you can trade them all for the Fierce Deity mask and beat Majora easy as pie.
  3. I know they have used different actors in every Batman movie except for the first 2 that had Michael Keaton. But I never knew that the character was different.
  4. What the hell was wrong with the original look in the 1989 movie? Why do they have to keep changing it?
  5. Screw NPC's. If I can't kill them myself, then I tend to ignore them. Or if I'm bored, I push them into a situation that is going to get them killed. The only time I bother to offer even the slightest bit of protection to an NPC is if it's a required part of a mission. If it doesn't matter after that, then I go back and kill them for being a pain in the ass.
  6. I’m glad I have a bottle of whiskey handy.
  7. I always used a TV. I just felt that they had better graphics capabilities, were faster, and were just in general better hardware than a PC monitor.
  8. Boredom with the quest. If it’s something that just drags on and on with no real action in it, that’s when I decide it’s not worth bothering with. From then on, I never bother with doing that quest again unless it eventually nets me an extremely valuable item.
  9. Hatred, Manhunt 2, and Postal 2 take the prize for me. The ability to go in and destroy anything and anyone is like blow for me. Hell a ki of blow isn’t as addictive. If you want something a little more mainstream, it would have to be the original Zelda on NES. I get started playing it, and the fucking controller glues itself to my hand.
  10. Dusk. The last rays of light dying out before the darkness takes over the world. The last shred of hope in the world ends with the light.
  11. There’s 2 for me. One is MDK. It’s a Win95 game. It’s kinda futuristic and for the time had amazing graphics. The other one is one that was on extremely primitive computers that I had on an old 286. It’s called ZZT. It’s a pixelated game, and your character is a small rectangle with a little smile on it. You have to find colored keys to advance to later areas and find power ups. I suck at describing things, but the game is a lot more fun than I can describe. I wish I could find a download of it somewhere.
  12. The last time that happened was probably 20 years ago during the PS2 era. There was a game (I don’t remember what) that I thought looked awesome, and I bought it even though I couldn’t afford the system at the time.
  13. As long as I was NOT enjoying myself and it kept me quiet and out of sight, then yes I could play games. If I started to enjoy myself, made any noise, or they saw me, I got beat with whatever was handy. So eventually I got to a point where I play games on mute, and show no emotion when I'm playing. That has stuck with me my entire life. 30 years. I can't play games with the sound on, regardless of what the game is due to the beatings I got when the game was audible.
  14. That thing is absolutely hideous. Under no circumstance will it ever enter my house. I think I'm gonna throw up.
  15. I have one of them somewhere around here. If I remember right it's Arkham Asylum. I've never even played it once, mainly because I never remember that I have it and also because I'm not much into superhero games. The only reason I can think of that I have it is because it had to be in a bundle that I bought at some point. I do enjoy Batman on NES, but other than that one, those type of games just never held any appeal for me. I've tried several from both Marvel and DC. They just bore me to death.
  16. If you’re going strictly for portability, I think the Lite is the better choice. But if you need the ability to go back and forth between portable and and TV console, then you need to get the normal Switch. I have the Switch Lite, and I love it.
  17. I play Hatred. Blood, senseless murder, and gore. Men, women, and children are all on the chopping block to be brutally slayed as sadistically as I want. And if a game doesn't cut it, I get on the dark web and watch snuff films.
  18. I was sitting here watching YouTube videos and got to thinking. We've all hard the urban legends about video games. Things like Ben Drowned, Polybius, Lavender Town, etc. But it got me curious to danger in games. I'm not looking for things like gaming for 51 hours straight. I'm looking for games that are actually dangerous to even play. Not games that affect a medical disorder like flashing lights and colors then having an epileptic seizure. Games that are just downright dangerous to even load. This may be an unanswerable question, or there might be some that are hazardous. I personally can't think of any off the top of my head, but thought that maybe someone else knows of something that could be what I'm looking for. I've heard that one of the games I play (Taboo The Sixth Sense) is supposed to be dangerous, but I've had no negative repercussions from playing it.
  19. We cant ignore Contra Rogue Corps. That was an absolute abomination. There was also MKM: Sub-Zero. While it's one of my favorites, FF8 didn't really do the Final Fantasy franchise any favors. But I think most people count FF9 and/or FF13 as the absolute worst that have come out. But there are also some spinoffs that, while they haven't ended a franchise, have damaged it. Things like Zelda Majoras Mask as well as some of the Game Boy titles. Oracle series, Minish Cap, etc. Great games all, but in the beginning, not so much. Players are often times wary of games that aren't directly related to the main story of a franchise, unless that franchise is known for changing it up with every edition, such as Final Fantasy. The first true sequel in the Final Fantasy series was FF X2. That's a long time from the first one that was on NES.
  20. I've returned only a couple games. It's not often that it's because there was a technical issue, but because I got it home and hated it. Simple as that.
  21. Diablo and Diablo II were great games, while Diablo III was a rancid piece of festering dog vomit. So I'm not putting much faith in this one. It does look like it has possible potential that it could be an ok MMORPG, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.
  22. Too many to list. For example, you guys know already that I have advanced muscular dystrophy. Well, I usually bring a 2 liter bottle of soda with me into my home office so I don't have to go back and forth between it and the kitchen. One day I had just come into my office and realized I had forgotten something. I set the bottle, that I hadn't even opened on my desk and went back to the kitchen. When I came back to the computer room, the bottle was sitting in the middle of the floor, completely empty. I just stared at it for a moment, not sure what to do. I left the room and grabbed an anxiety pill and gun. I went back to the office, and the bottle was now sitting on my desk, full, and unopened. Another time, I was in bed trying to sleep one night. My girl was beside me already asleep. No I don't have children, she's my bestie. She was staying with me for a few nights, because I had told her that some weird shit was going on in my house, but she didn't believe me. We always go to sleep with the TV playing. I was laying there watching TV and something I couldn't see started wrapping its hands around my throat strangling me. I couldn't breathe, or make a sound. Nothing could come out. I started thrashing around in bed trying to fight off whatever the hell it was that had me. My thrashing woke my friend up and she went into panic mode. She didn't know what to do so she jumped up and ran for the light switch. Just before she got to the switch the thing let go of my throat and raked what felt like razor blades across my chest from just below my left collar bone to the bottom of my ribs on my right side. When we looked there were hand marks all the way around my neck and I was bleeding from the claw marks. We slept with the light on the next few nights. To this day the scars still burn, and I'm scared to go to sleep a lot of the time. I moved into a small farmhouse several years ago. The owners had a small antique refrigerator in the basement. I was down there with the landlord one day, and set my glasses down on top of the fridge. I had some of those clip on sunglasses on my glasses. You know the ones that usually break 20 minutes after buying them. They were all I could afford. Well I went to do something and forgot to put them back on. I went back to the fridge and they had vanished. The landlord hadn't taken them. Actually he said he hadn't even seen them. And I believed him because he hadn't been anywhere near that fridge the whole time we were down there. We both searched the entire basement for them and never found anything. They were just gone from existence. I was pissed because it meant I had to pay for a new pair of glasses. Fast forward about 3 years. I was in the basement doing laundry and walked by that fridge. Sitting on top of it were the clip on sunglasses. My glasses weren't there but the sunglasses were. I never went into that basement again and started going to a laundromat. There's a lot more. Shadow people won't leave me alone, voices caught on EVP, pics and videos, meetings face to face wit entities. Hell take this pic for example. This is one that was taken by my besties mother.
  23. What kind of bread do you prefer and why? Wheat, white, sourdough, etc. etc.
  24. Sitting on my fat ass doing a hell of a lot of nothing.
