Just think, one term of a tweeting syphilitic orange troll and it's defenders. Tis going to be a long 4 years.

Yup, was hoping Trumps language during the election was just typical rhetoric to get elected (and a lot was) but based on his picks so far... going to be a long 4 years. Should be interesting listening to his supporters blame everyone under the sun but themselves for the ruin he'll leave in his wake.

What are some really good console only games along the lines of "The Last of Us"? They don't have to be apocalypse based, just looking for excellent stories. Someone suggested Heavy Rain for example.

Thanks

You absolutely have to play all the Uncharted games, Uncharted 2 is a masterpiece... and all made by the same company that did The Last of Us.

I got one, it goes to a full black (no output) screen once or twice every hour or so.

Hopefully they patch it and fix it somehow.

I've had and still have handshake issues with some of my devices. One thing I discovered that makes things work, for me, is the order you turn on your devices. For example, my receiver and TV will not communicate unless I turn on the TV, let it boot up, then turn on my receiver.

Man, I wonder what would cause that...

Online Support representative KingGobbo admitted the issue’s existence and suggested a convoluted temporary fix involving switching the console into its Safe mode and changing its digital rights management setting from HDCP 2.2 to 1.4.

Oh, of course.

Yup, DRM, fucking over paying customers since, forever... but hey it stops pirates right?

Well the children have made their tantrum heard. I know the electorate has had enough with the insider political BS but electing Trump is the height of stupidity... and the sheer idiocy of the situation is their dysfunctional government is a direct result of the people they voted into power. All because Americans vote like their party is some kind of sports team. Every election it's basically a fifty fifty split regardless of what imbeciles the parties put forth... and now it seems elections are going to be solely decided on a popularity circus side show? Guess they should just stop pretending the general public is anything other then morons and just go with "Survivor White House" for the next cycle. It will at least be cheaper and faster.

Was watching BBC news after it broke that Trump had won and they showed the Russian state duma cheering and congratulating themselves. Says a lot that the happiest people in the world right now are Duterte and Putin. I'm going to remain optimistic as really no one but Trump knows what's coming, does he lean left or right? He might actually be a liberal who just pulled the biggest con job in republican history. Was funny to watch that crowd of his do a double take as he congratulated Hillary and said she deserves thanks for her service, got real quiet in that place.

The people he chooses for his cabinet is going to be the tell. Does he fill the positions with qualified people or his sycophants.

So the republicans in their infinite wisdom elect a born with a silver spoon spoiled rich idiot Bush Jr into office. He proceeds to practically ruin the country which leads to the formation of the tea party. The tea party in their infinite wisdom to make things right again are trying to elect another born with a silver spoon spoiled rich idiot into office? It defies logic.

That picture of Donald looking over to see who his wife is voting for is priceless.

and a much larger problem with the internet, imo, is the introduction of algorithms in places like youtube. They are there so people see videos youtube thinks they want to see. Problem is it just spirals people deeper into the rabbit hole, and the general population just can't differentiate between whats real and whats BS... as clearly seen in many posts on this site. I visited a good friend of mine recently who I haven't seen in a while and he was totally off his rocker. Totally convinced Hillary Clinton and the new world order was going to destroy the world. Sure enough I go to youtube on his computer and all the videos showing up on his front page were from batshitcrazy land, because that's where youtube led him... I deleted his youtube cookies and told him to chill out, its all BS.

heh they said television was going to make people stupid... well the internet is making them brain dead.

Meh, I'll check it out if it's still free on their web site, otherwise... They did a pretty nice job on the mod but their reinvention of a lot of the later levels really killed the whole vibe of the original game.

TotalBiscuit's comments on the single player have put me off, they seem to have completely missed the style of WW1.

Well, its pretty obvious also if you watch some gameplay videos.
Feels more like a mix of WW1 and WW2, leaning stronger to WW2. Fictitious.

No, if you watch TBs video it leans more towards wolfenstein then WW2. I had high hopes when I saw that video where you kept dieing and respawning as someone else, but seems that was a one shot gimmick on the first level only... it's as shallow as every other EA shooter, looks real purdy though.

As for that traitorous, sellout scoundrel nin, he needs to walk the plank! Off with you, scallywag! Bat Giggle Ahoy

As I've said before, I'm a gamer, and I don't limit myself to one platform. If it's awesome, I want to play it...

In addition to a pc, I've owned a 2600, a nes, a genesis, a ps1, an atari jaguar (egad!), a dreamcast, a gamecube, a 360, a GBA, and a DS.

Why limit yourself to one platform?


I've had a 2600, NES, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, SNES, Genesis, Dreamcast, GBA, Gamecube, 360, and PS3. I've also had, at times, roommates with an N64, PS2, and Xbox, and therefore owned games for each of them, too. I may be forgetting some but don't think so.

Some of those I really hardly touched. The GBA came with the GC I bought on eBay and got maybe 10 hours of use. The PS2 was used solely for Katamari Damcy, the PS3 basically only for the Naughty Dog games, the Genesis mostly for Sonic 2 and Road Rash, and the DC I bought after it was discontinued and actually really struggled to get into.

But there are tens of thousands of hours into those combined, particularly the NES, GC and 360. Way too many great games (at the time) for them.

Nice! I'm of the opinion consoles are well worth owning even if you only play a couple games for that platform. As a gamer from the arcade days, paying $200 for a console and $50 for a couple games you like is easily worth the price of admission.

I've had an Intellivision, NES, SNES, Sega Saturn, N64, PS One (the small white version of the PS1), Gamecube, Xbox (original), and PSP, all acquired in that order. My next console will probably be Nintendo's NX, just so I can play the best possible version of Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.

PS4 is looking mighty enticing as well, but would only get used for a couple games realistically, including RDR2. Do the original RDRevolver and RDRedemption play on PS4?

I guess Revolver was on PS2 so I could emulate it on PCSX2, but I'm a big fan of playing the originals, on the mediums they were intended. I even have a CRT still for the older systems because of the lack of scanlines and such on LCD's, which were very much taken in account for in the original games from the generations where that kind of display was still relevant.

Revolver - yes Redemption -no, you most definitely would want to play all the uncharted games too and they have all been ported to the PS4.

I don't know if I would buy a straight up remaster. Now if they do something like they did with GTA5, then hell ya... Course all my friends would probably buy it then I would have to too because it's just so much fun piling into a stage coach and roaming the desert wreaking havoc.
