  1. Hi, what video games do you like? Whats your fav gaming device? If you have an xbox or xbox one, would you like to meet up in the gaming world?
  2. Tell everyone about your computer (or computers, if you use more than one)! What model is it and what OS does it run? Myself, I work from two laptops: an HP Pavilion dv6-3170ca for school, and an HP EliteBook 8740w for home (mostly) - both run Windows 7 x64. Here's the smaller one: Specs: Intel i5 2.2 GHz Dual Core w/ Hyper-Threading (up to 2.8 GHz w/ TurboBoost) integrated graphics 4 GB DDR3 RAM 500 GB 7200 RPM hard drive 15" glossy screen (1366x768x24) fingerprint reader Blu-ray drive (read-only) And the larger: Specs: Intel i7 1.7 GHz Quad Core w/ Hyper-Threading (up to 3.06 GHz w/ TurboBoost) NVIDIA Quadro 5000M GPU w/ 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM 8 GB DDR3 RAM (high speed - 1333 MHz!) 500 GB 7200 RPM hard drive 17" 1.07 billion-colour matte screen (1920x1200x30) fingerprint reader backlit, spillproof keyboard Both are beautiful computers and serve me really well. I use the dv6 for school because it wasn't a very expensive computer and has great battery life, and the EliteBook is my awesome gaming/do-it-all machine.
  3. Ok this game has 2 months before changing anything and i would have to say i am loving it so much ! i am super happy they are making this , i never wouldve thought there would be another spyro , after crash remake i though ohh ok thats it then i guess but once they announced this i thought yep day one no questions asked i would get it on digital and get the cover disc version for the cover art. So i made this topic for anyone wants to talk about spyro or or other spyro games , or post any new announcements for the trilogy , videos , new screenshots , comic con live feed (which is coming up soon ).
  4. Most videogames have an intro right before the main menu pops up (or after, depends on the game - it is basically there to give you a rough idea and a taste of what is in store) What is your favorite or most memorable? Mine is the one from Call of Duty 1.
  5. I'm sure this thread has been posted multiple times, but I figured to give it a new kick start! Anypony here play MTG? What kinds of formats do you like to play? What's your favorite color (or color combination) to play? As for me, I like Commander, and my favorite color combo is UWR, or Jeskai/America. Hoping to chat Magic with anyone here!
  6. So, it's been a few weeks since Mario Kart 8's launch. Now that we've had a chance to experience all of the new tracks and updated retro tracks, what are some of your favorites and least favorites? My personal favorite tracks are Mount Wario, Rainbow Road, and DS Tick-Tock Clock. Each of these tracks are extremely technical and feature many cleverly hidden shortcuts or opportunities to overtake your opponents. My least favorite tracks are Mario Circuit, N64 Toad's Turnpike, and N64 Rainbow Road. All three of these tracks are incredibly straightforward and lack any sort of shortcut opportunities. Toad's Turnpike is especially frustrating due to the high volume of traffic that reduce the effectiveness of items, which is the only way to catch the lap leaders since there are no effective boosts or shortcuts anywhere on the track.

    Gaming Is Fortnight or PUBG better

    Look, in PUBG, you have vehicles, realistic guns and surroundings, and it's kinda like CallofDuty. So I prefer PUBG.
  8. So over the years we've heard our fair share of stories that make us all question the integrity of game journalists, and frankly, I am at the point where I literally don't even listen to ANYTHING they have to say anymore because half the time they are reviewing with an agenda in mind, not telling us if a game is worth buying or not. To top it off, review disparity seems to becoming more and more common with critics vs. the general public and the excuses for dismissing that the general public does not like something that critics do or that they like something that critics don't boil down to two main excuses: "Those scores are just review bombed/inflated!" the flimsy shield of one who doesn't want to do research. Often times this is said when a game is given great scores for being "progressive" or "inclusive" to some minority, but the fans didn't think the game was a 10/10 like the critics did. The low fan score is blamed on homophobic fans review bombing the game. However, seldom do people actually READ what the fans are saying and there is little way to verify if enough people review bombed it to have an impact on the overall score. This is basically the cheapest defense I see, and it's basically used by lazy people who want to dismiss evidence to the contrary as quickly as they can. Claiming the evidence is not good enough despite not proving it is not sufficient. "The average person is stupid!" This is just elitist as hell. You are thinking yourself smarter than everyone. This is often said by those who seem to think that a good review uses flowery language, and writes pages upon pages. It is used commonly with the "long must mean good". People think if a review "feels" more thought out that it must be more "right". Sorry, but no matter which way you slice it, often a game is reviewed by maybe 50 journalists and a couple thousand fans. To say those 50 journalists are smarter than the thousands of fans when you haven't even read said fan reviews shows that you are merely a sheep pseudo-intellectual that thinks a review needs to be 10 pages to be great. Often times the people I see dismissing the average joe's thoughts are those types who think they are so profound and smart. Neither of these are a good defense, needless to say, however here are my reasons for why I do not take game journalists seriously anymore: Many publications have known agendas. We know Kotaku is pretty pro-liberal and pro-feminist. They are owned by Gawker after all who have shown they will support anyone that preaches feminism and social justice. The score disparity is often insane and reeks of not rating a game too low to avoid pissing off a publisher. Sites that have been called out for their crappy ethics turn around and throw a temper tantrum and try to blame the users. We have seen sites get caught being closer to a developer than they originally advertised. Review sites get games for free, so they are not going to go into it with the same mentality as an average joe. When the average joe spends money on something, he will try harder to enjoy it because he wants his money to be well spent. Not to mention getting things for free gives incentive to not piss off the game creators and publishers. Fear of blacklisting by publishers means review sites will often try to avoid speaking their entire minds. We have seen quite a few reviewers prove they are bad at games. There's tons more, but that's just getting the discussion going. What are your thoughts?
  9. Let me just start by saying I'm a stern believer that replay value comes before anything else. Regardless of what platform- PS4, XBox One, Switch, PC, etc- we're paying $60 on average for games now, or $120 in the case of collector's editions, and we need to get our money's worth. No matter how advanced today's technology is, no matter how well-crafted in-game cinematics and storytelling are, they should not outprioritize giving players the incentive to keep coming back. That's why I rarely play anything that's not competitive. Most developers have become so fixated on storytelling in the last several generations that they don't know how to make their products fun anymore. BUT, that being said, I do think that anything added to a game for artistic value should still be done well. While I don't think our games should be developed as "interactive movies" by any stretch, if they can be presented like movies, then I think they deserve to be treated with the same respect as actual movies. Anyway, I'm sure most of us are aware of the controversy from the recent Battlefield V trailer, showcasing a female soldier with a prosthetic arm fighting in a WWII setting. I have no personal attachment to this franchise whatsoever, so I'm not going to debate for or against that creative direction EA took in this thread. I do have a position on this, but that's not what I want to talk about here. There's a certain argument being presented in this debate that irks me. While a lot of fans are against the idea of playing as females in this game because it's historically inaccurate, people in favor of it say that it doesn't matter for one of two reasons. The first is that it's inclusive and makes the experience more inviting to female gamers, and that they shouldn't feel alienated. Fair enough. But the other argument? Apparently, it doesn't matter because "it's just a game". Details like that are trivial because we only play games for fun; if somebody wants historic accuracy, they could just watch a documentary or a biopic. ...... What in the actual FUCK is that supposed to mean? So because it's "just a game", the developers shouldn't give it the same artistic merit as other mediums? What if Battlefield V was a movie playing in theaters? If audiences came into it and they saw women on the big screen killing German soldiers on the coast of Norway, everybody would lose it and start bashing the final cut for feminist pandering and historical inaccuracy. And that would be considered an acceptable criticism. But because it's a game, EA can just dump whatever the hell they want into it, and I'm supposed to believe that ISN'T going to detract from my experience? Gee, if you're gonna put in female soldiers with prosthetic limbs, why not give me Zelda and Princess Peach? Hell, maybe some fucking Skylanders too while you're at it? Yeah, because games are never meant to be taken seriously; there's no WAY fans could get pissed off over something like that. This dismissive labeling doesn't just pertain to Battlefield, but all games. It's ridiculous. There's a reason I traded in my copy of Hitman: Absolution. Not only were the series' most fundamental stealth mechanics horribly downplayed in favor of gunfights, but Square tried so hard to give it the flare of a Hollywood blockbuster that it just didn't feel like a real Hitman game. Not even David Bateson's voice acting could save it. The new characters were trite and cliched, the dialogue was laughably bad, the script was stupid and uninspired, and the music they chose to compensate for the lack of Jesper Kyd scores was generic to the point of being nauseating. It was the first sequel I genuinely hated in ANY game series I loved. And it's not because all the shooting I could do wasn't fun. It's because I didn't care for it. They just made some piss-poor action game and slapped the Hitman logo on it just to get me to buy it. That was probably the worst buying decision I've ever made. A lot of the fun in a game doesn't JUST come from how we play it, but from what we see. And at no point am I going to appreciate someone telling me I should just accept Absolution for what it is because it's "just a game." That stupid catchphrase would have made sense in the 16-bit era. You know, back when KIDS were still the main gaming demographic, and we were limited to playing platformers and side-scrolling shooters. But those same kids who played games on the Super Nintendo are adults now, many of whom have broken into the industry to develop their own projects, and as such, gaming as a whole grew WITH them. Now we can pick up a PS4, pop in a triple-A game like Grand Theft Auto V, and we don't have to feel embarrassed about it. So why is it that we still have people talking down on gaming like we should be? I'd expect that kind of talk from movie studio executives, but guys who claim to enjoy gaming as a hobby? This is unbelievable.

    Gaming Rage or Fallout: Which is better?

    Which is the better post-apocalyptic game? Rage or Fallout?
  11. Bit of a strange question here, but I am curious if anyone of you have a similar dealio with some games. There are games you may like or even love, but for whatever reason you still think it may not deserve its popularity or extremely high praise, if it has those. Are there any games like that for you and if so, why? For me, a BIG one is the original Dark Souls. Simply put, I actually love the game. I love its combat, I love its lore, music, most bosses, that sort of thing. However, I do think the game gets just a little too much praise at times, to the point where people just flat-out ignore its flaws. One huge flaw the game sometimes has is in its enemy design. In some areas of the game, there are enemies that can kill you in one combo or two hits or so, when some bosses cannot even do that at the same level. The Tomb of the Giants, one of the most poorly designed areas of the game in my book, has these four legged skeleton enemies that do so much damage that it is ridiculous. Their standard attacks do an insane amount of damage, but they sometimes stand up and lunge down and that attack, it seems no matter what level you are or your defense, that WILL kill you no matter what. I can hardly think of any bosses that can do something like that and it makes me feel that the design was botched here, especially the boss of this area, Gravelord Nito, is a joke. He doesn't do ANYTHING that can kill you in one hit, so having those skeleton enemies, a STANDARD ENEMY do an attack like that is idiotic. Same goes for enemies like the titanite demons, which sometimes are put in poor locations making them harder to fight than some bosses. Let's also not forget the Bed of Chaos, which is one of the most pathetic 'boss fights' I have ever seen in ANY game, let alone it being the worst in this series. Because of that I think the game doesn't quite deserve the praise it gets from some, as some talk about Dark Souls 1 as the apogee of game design. It really isn't. It is a great game, but not THAT great.

    Gaming Most rented games

    Renting games from a store was always something I looked forward to when I was younger. Being able to experience a new title in full for cheap was always great. As such, some games I rented more than others for whatever reason. Probably loving the game but lacked the funds for full purchase. What are some games that you all rented a bunch? One in particular I rented several times was True Crime Streets of LA. I remember renting it on a whim and ended up loving it. I ended up renting it at least 4 or 5 times, which is a lot for me. I would spend hours just frisking people. XD I also remember renting World's Scariest Police Chases on PS1 multiple times. Not sure why eithrr, the game wasn't spectacular. I think it was the idea of BEING the police. Same thing with True Crime actually. Ironic.

    Gaming beamng things and stuff

    Here we can discuss many things that are beamng such as the automation and beamng crossover or videos about the game in general. I'll start by saying that the crossover is exciting to see and that I'm attempting to go as fast as I can on the super car rally scenario. My controller gets no fb and the analog sticks only need half input about to go full throttle/steering so it's really difficult but here is my quickest attempt: Sorry about quality, not much I can do about it since youtube compression isn't the best.
  14. I thought I made this thread before, but apparently not. So, here it is! There is a recent purchases thread in general discussion, but this will be specifically for anything gaming related. ^__^ So if you have bought anything that is in the category of gaming, share it here! I will say this one now, tomorrow I will be buying the Attack on Titan game for Xbox One, since I cannot pre-order it. Really looking forward to it. :3

    Gaming DEATH BATTLE

    Hey, everypony. ^^ I hope I'm not the only one here who's heard of ScrewAttack.com's infamous series: For those who know what I'm talking about, sweet! ^^ For those who may not, allow me to explain. ^^ Death Battle is a series where 2 characters from (usually) video games, have their "skills, weapons, and armor" completely analyzed by 2 awesome bros known as Wizard and Boomstick, to see who would win a fight. It's actually a really awesome series, I would highly recommend it to those who haven't watched it. ^^ Death Battle has answered some of the most common asked questions to "who would win a fight between x and x?" Some of their most infamous battles have been: Goku VS Superman Mario VS Sonic Spider-Man VS Batman and just for us Bronies Starscream VS Rainbow Dash This series is really cool, and I think there's some serious discussion behind all this. ^^ Today, they have just released their newest Death Battle: Luigi VS Tails Now, take these with a grain of salt, because there's a lot more battles then these I've just named. ^^ For those who have already seen the videos and wish to discuss, I ask that you keep spoiling parts under spoiler tags. Oh, and did I mention that they animate a fight at the end of the videos? Very cool! ^^ So, that's about it. ^^" I'm not entirely sure where to start discussion besides saying that today's Luigi VS Tails battle was amazing! ^^ Has anyone else seen it yet? ^^
  16. Basically The Mother games are a form of an RPG except its a parody. Plays like Dragon Quest/Warrior in some ways and takes place in a modern America (80s/90s) like setting. Pretty fun and hilarious games. First game in the franchise was Mother 1 for the Famicom (Japanese NES). It plays like Dragon Warrior/Quest and Final Fantasy for NES. Second is Mother 2 (AKA EarthBound) released on SNES and is considered to be one of the best RPGs on the Super Nintendo. Third is Mother 3 released on Gameboy Advance (in Japan). Have you heard of this series? If yes, then what are your thoughts?
  17. So, we know Fallout 76 is coming this November. Public reaction has been... mixed. But while there is already a thread for users to discuss their thoughts on the game, I figured I would make one for players like me who are excited and eager to play. I already pre-ordered the game, highly anticipating the Break-it Early Test Application. But I don't have any friends to play it with once the game is released! Here you can exchange information with other players regarding the game. Group up, make alliances, organize shops, or even form factions! I will be playing on Xbox One. My Gamertag is GeekySonic. Currently I'm partnered with one other player I met on the Fallout Amino, and we have no immediate affiliations with any group. I plan to focus my character on combat. Purely for defensive reasons, of course.

    Gaming Smash 5 Roster Wishlist

    Nintendo's E3 presentation is rapidly approaching and by my calculations, there's approximately an 85% chance that the new Switch Smash Bros. game will be revealed in full. If it does end up being a proper sequel instead of merely a port of the Wii U version, what characters do YOU want to see made playable? Only mention characters that you really, REALLY want, this IS a wishlist after all xD For moi:
  19. So I played the game for a couple months and I ultimately loved it! I think I made it over 20 points or something... It all went well until my dad saw the game and deleted it. All data lost. Finished. Done.
  20. We always seems to discuss the best of everything, but what about letdowns? So did you ever bought a game that didn't quite live up to the hype or your expectations?
  21. A fair number of us have played and enjoy video games. Which games mean the most to you? It can be a game that you really enjoy, or even a game that you grew up with as a child. You don't need to limit yourself to one. Just name the games that have the most meaning to you and if you want, add a brief explanation. I'll begin: Super Mario 64 DS First Super Mario game I ever played and one of the first video games I played. I have memories of avidly exploring the castle and stages in the game. The variety of stages and the atmosphere of areas such as Jolly Roger Bay, or the mystery of locations such as the Princesses' Secret Slide, were amazing to bear witness too. The minigames were also a great time waster and I have spent time in an attempt to set freakishly high records on them. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 I remember when I finally beat this game at my grandma's house, with my family cheering me on. It was most certainly a rush. Pokémon Platinum Pokemon Platinum is a game which I've wasted many hours on. Whether it was training Pokemon teams, or breeding Pokemon, my mind was always captivated by the game and it's events. There was never truly a dull moment that I faced in my experience with game. Mega Man 2 I will not lie, this game always used to get the better of me. I could never beat any of the robot masters and I always gave up when I failed to progress. Although, as time passed, I got better and better. Eventually, I played through it and beat it. Beating Dr. Wily with just a sliver of health and one life left, is something that I cannot truly describe. There was also a water based racing game on the PC that I played when I was 4-5. I have such fond memories of it, but I cannot remember the name for the life of me.

    Gaming Low End PC Gaming

    Scouring the internet trying to find a good thread or website to recommend games for my build. So far i get threads saying 'you cant play any games' or incomplete lists of games. So at my wits end, i made this thread. Hopefully in this thread we can all give feedback of what games our systems can run. Im aware of sites such as can I run it. However, its shown that that website is usually 50/50. Case in point, the website told me i couldnt run GTA 4, yet here i am playing it on low settings with no hiccups. To help others help you, one should download Speccy, which is a really good app for viewing your build as well as the temperatures. This will help others gauge what level of performance your PC is it. Many apologies if this is similar to a thread out there already. DESKTOP-0BD5P2M.speccy

    Gaming What Games Got You Into Gaming?

    Playing games like the Banjo Kazooie series, War Of The Monsters on Playstation 2, Destroy All Humans, Star Wars Battlefront games, Ratchet and Clank games, Gauntlet Dark Legacy, and oddly enough Simpsons Hit & Run, and Road Rage were the games that really got me into video games. I used to LOVE the atmosphere in Gauntlet Dark Legacy as a kid. It's one of the earliest memories that I have actually playing video games with my Dad, and my cousins.
  24. I really cant guess mine at this time but as of now the Nintendo 64... Nostalgia of playing them old Mario and Zelda games and things you know?
  25. Probably the scariest series I've played by FAR is Five Nights at Freddy. In no.3, Springtrap finished me off so the third game in the series is the scariest for me.
