  1. I didnt play a whole hell of a lot at the arcades but one that I do remember is the Jurassic Park III light gun game. Beat that while staying at Walt Disney World in the mid 2000s.

  2. If you've played one kart game, you've probably played them all...or in some cases, you havent. If the former is the case, which was your favorite? Which one did you like the least? 

    My favorites are Mario Kart, Sonic Racing and Crash Team Racing.

    We all know that movie theaters have been hurting since they were forced to close down over the coronavirus pandemic. There was also a fear that some movie theaters might not be able to make it out of this alive. It looks like one of the big movie theater chains is sweating it, and according to The Wrap, they are unlikely to survive.

    It’s reported that AMC Entertainment's credit rating has been downgraded from a 'B' to 'CCC-,' and what that means is that "Default imminent, with little prospect for recovery." Analyst S&P Global confirms:

    "We expect AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc.’s (AMC) theaters will remain closed beyond June due to the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic. We do not believe AMC has sufficient sources of liquidity to cover its expected negative cash flows past mid-summer." 

    AMC is in major debut as it reported a $5+ billion deficit at the end of 2019 and losses of $149 million. The analysts continued:

    "While unlikely, we could raise the rating if AMC were able to secure additional liquidity without further burdening its capital structure and if we expected the company would be able to generate substantial cash flow in 2021. This would likely require conclusive knowledge about the length of the theater closures and a view that the box office would return to normalized levels in 2021."

    The rumours for the next Resident Evil keep coming. The latest batch, courtesy of Biohazard Declassified, echoes some of what Dusk Golem had mentioned a few days back, along with some brand new tidbits. Check your sodium levels, because once again, none of this has been verified/confirmed by Capcom.

    For starters, RE8 has a title: Resident Evil Village. And much like the Resident Evil VII script, Capcom is apparently playing with the font, highlighting the ‘VIII’ in ‘Village’. Also, the game will have a European setting, which is where Ethan from RE7 encounters Chris Redfield.

    Speaking of Chris, he will undergo another redesign, and be playing an integral part in RE8. He appears in flashbacks surrounding Ethan, Mia, and apparently their baby. As for enemies, a new one is a Witch that will be similar to Marguerite, in that she operates with insects. She will haunt the player, and has a distinctive laugh.

    And as mentioned before, hallucinations will apparently also play a part in the game, further emphasizing the theme of distrust with whomever you meet. The game will apparently return to the Resident Evil 4 inventory management style, so get used to rotating those sprays. Lastly, the game is slated to release in Q1 of 2021, but that might change, given the circumstances.

    I think I won't be surprised if people make the virus lockdown type of simulators game. I think experience managment is possible with such games. 

    There's Plague INC which is a simulator that lets you design diseases to wipe out populations, they also created a mode in game that lets you create vaccines to repair them.

    My main go to simulators though are Rollercoaster Tycoon and Planet Coaster. Both are extremely addicting.

    I haven’t played it, but I’ve heard a lot of people say that it gets extremely boring really quick. 

    Thats probably because they were expecting a full fledged Mario game which it's not.

    The Entertainment Software Association has formally announced dates for a “reimagined” E3 in 2021, following the cancellation of E3 2020, and IGN's own announcement of its Summer of Gaming event. E3 2021 will be held from June 15 to June 17, 2021.

    According to GamesIndustry.biz, the ESA sent out the news to industry partners late Friday.

    E3 2020 was officially cancelled on March 11 due to concerns over the COVID-19/coronavirus and the ensuing shelter-in-place orders that various state governments have issued, including Los Angeles, California, where E3 is held each year.

    The ESA has previously stated it is considering the possibility of an online event, although it has not provided any further details as of early April.

    If by some chance you missed the news, IGN has announced its own “Summer of Gaming” event, which will take place this June. Summer of Gaming will feature developers and news from studios like 2K, Square Enix, SEGA, Bandai Namco, Amazon, Google Stadia, Twitter, Devolver Digital, THQ Nordic, and more. Check out the link above for more details, and keep an eye on IGN for when we announce more details.

    @Dead2009 Would you rather have loads of time to play games but only be able to buy two games a year, or be able to buy loads of games but never have much time to play them?

    You asked the same question twice, lol.

  11. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-03-30-sources-nintendo-switch-2020-line-up-dominated-by-mario-games-old-and-new


    Nintendo Switch's first-party line-up for the rest of 2020 will be dominated by Mario games old and new, to coincide with the original Super Mario Bros.' 35th anniversary.

    That's according to Eurogamer sources with knowledge of Nintendo's upcoming plans, who have corroborated a report posted by VGC.

    First, the report states Nintendo will release "most of Super Mario's 35-year back catalogue this year, remastered for Nintendo Switch".

    There's no detail on which games this includes, but the article includes a banner image of Mario Galaxy, perhaps intended to suggest the Wii classic as one of these games.

    Eurogamer sources have indicated that Mario Galaxy is indeed one of the games being readied for a remaster, alongside a couple of other 3D Mario favourites. [UPDATE: Gematsu has now confirmed these as Mario 64 and Mario Sunshine, which Eurogamer can corroborate.]

    Many earlier Mario games are already available on Switch via the console's Switch Online NES and SNES apps.

    Second, the report states "several other Mario titles" will release in 2020, including a new Paper Mario.

    Eurogamer sources have confirmed a new Paper Mario is in the works, along with a Deluxe version of Super Mario 3D World, which will include an array of new levels. This long-rumoured Wii U port is one of a couple of first-party games from Nintendo's previous console currently due for a new lease of life in 2020.

    When contacted for this story, Nintendo gave Eurogamer its traditional response that it did not comment on rumour or speculation.

    If this is legit, Im gonna need a bigger SD card....

  12. XSplit or OBS are what you would usually use to capture the video and you'd need a mixer, mic and what not to capture your audio. If you're doing it from a console, you'd need a capture card unless you had the in house Twitch streaming from PS4 or Xbox.

    I heard about this one before, I think I will try it if a sale comes out. Are the controls difficult ?

    It goes for about 20 bucks so you wont be breaking the bank if you got it now and no, not really, although there are some characters that have crappy attacks.

    Loads of time to play them. I could go without buying games for the year because theres only a select few I get hyped for.

    The IOC and Tokyo Olympic organizers agreed to move the Tokyo Games to 2021.

    It will mark the first time in history that the start of an Olympics will be delayed to another year. The Opening Ceremony will not be held on July 24 as scheduled, but on an undetermined 2021 date, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    “In the present circumstances and based on the information provided by the [World Health Organization] today, the IOC President and the Prime Minister of Japan have concluded that the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo must be rescheduled to a date beyond 2020 but not later than summer 2021, to safeguard the health of the athletes, everybody involved in the Olympic Games and the international community,” according to a joint statement from the IOC and the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee. “The leaders agreed that the Olympic Games in Tokyo could stand as a beacon of hope to the world during these troubled times and that the Olympic flame could become the light at the end of the tunnel in which the world finds itself at present. Therefore, it was agreed that the Olympic flame will stay in Japan. It was also agreed that the Games will keep the name Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.”

    The announcement came two days after IOC President Thomas Bach said detailed discussions began to assess the coronavirus’ impact on the Olympics, including the scenario of postponement but not cancellation.

    Bach said Sunday there are “many, many challenges” in planning different Olympic scenarios.

    “A number of critical venues needed for the Games could potentially not be available anymore,” he wrote in a letter to athletes. “The situations with millions of nights already booked in hotels is extremely difficult to handle, and the international sports calendar for at least 33 Olympic sports would have to be adapted.”

    On Monday, the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee joined the list of National Olympic Committees, including those from Canada and Australia, urging for postponement. USOPC leaders called it “the most promising path” after surveying more than 1,780 Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls. Sixty-eight percent said they did not think the Games could be fairly competed if continued as scheduled.

    Before the postponement announcement, the IOC was already working with international federations to make changes to Olympic qualifying, which has been impacted by global sporting events being canceled into April and May.

    An increase in the number of overall athletes allowed for a sport will be considered on a case-by-case basis under exceptional circumstances, the IOC said last week, while adding that 57 percent of athletes had already qualified for the Olympics.

    The modern Olympics, first held in Athens in 1896, have only ever been canceled for World War I (1916) and World War II (1940 and 1944).

    During the Games, terror attacks at the 1972 Munich Olympics postponed events for one day. The 1996 Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park bombing delayed some events to later that day, Olympic historian Bill Mallon said.
