  1. I apologize for any hurt feelings I may have caused. In many ways I feel my statements regarding the chat situation were justified, but it's not like me to engage in that kind of negativity. Time to move forward.

  2. Do an aileron roll!

      Not nearly as catchy. :P

  3. Is anyone else particularly interested in E3 this year? Looks like a lot of exciting announcements have aleady been made, and with Morpheus likely getting big-time attention and XB1 supposedly presenting their strongest first party lineup in years, it should be quite the occasion. Even PC has its own conference this year. Shame about Nintendo keeping mum about Zelda and NX, though; here's hoping Starfox and whatever else they show is/are incredible...

      E3 is still relevant?

    3. DoctorTom

      DoctorTom

      Only to people who find the videogame industry relevant.

      I can see there is NOT much interest. lol

  4. Just updating to try to get that crude 7-11 story off the page. :)

  5. Just about to wrap up The Unfinished Swan, a PS3 exclusive. Absolutely stellar. If you have PS Plus this month, you must grab this free game. If not, it's worth every penny of the $15 price.

      Unfinished Swan gives me horrible motion sickness. Easy to try it for free if you have PS+ but if you've ever had motion sickness from games you may want to try the demo before buying.

    2. DoctorTom

      DoctorTom

      That's true of any first person game, though. For what it's worth, I have motion sickness on occasion, and this one didn't bother me at all. Changing the camera speed helps a lot, btw.

  6. Saw the Avengers. Highly mediocre. Superhero movies have been trending downhill for some time now.

      I think the thing with the Avengers films is that they a are shook interdependent. If you mids any if then, the rest aren't as meaningful.

    2. DoctorTom

      I saw them all. Still pretty lousy.

  7. The Unfinished Swan and Race the Sun are both excellent PS Plus free games this month. Be sure to check them out.

      No one needs it, but I expect now that the tech is ready, it will revolutionize gaming, over a period of years.

      I'm quite happy with the traditional keyboard/mouse/monitor interface.

       

      Do we actually "need" this VR stuff? Especially considering how it failed in the 90's.

       

      I'm just wondering what I would use this for?

      Seriously?

  8. Just heard they're finally going to do an Incredibles 2. Made my week.

      inconceivable !

  10. Check out Moodorf's latest vid -- lots of good points

  11. I heard there's DLC for MK8 on 4/23. Does anyone know if Friendships or Babalities will be included?

  12. I'm not sure I want to support Walmart, so I'm looking at buying stuff at Sam's Club instead.

      Guys -- Walmart owns Sam's Club. I was playing the (April) fool.

      Maybe them not getting the joke was part of the joke.

  13. Great article that summarizes precisely my feelings on this matter: http://www.polygon.com/2015/3/4/8147397/playstation-4-virtual-reality-morpheus

      "500 Error.

      Something went wrong. Sorry, Internet!" When I clicked that.

  14. Q*bert Rebooted -- arcade perfect Q*b in classic mode makes it worth the $10 (although why no pause?). Rebooted mode itself is pretty bad. But an "A" for a home port that is finally arcade perfect!

  15. The namesh Forreshter. Aushtin Forreshter.

  16. To those looking for me on chat... For the foreseeable future, most days I will not be on until midnight.

      I'm glad these movies are so long. I'm always kind of sad when it's over because I like the world they have created, so a 700 hour movie is fine with me. I watch at home instead of sitting in a theater, so I can do other things while I watch.

    3. DoctorTom

      DoctorTom

      True. Maybe it's just how long the battle scenes are. I can only take so much visual and auditory abuse.

      Come on Eddie, tell us what you think of Hobbit III.

  18. Hoping to knock off Link to the Past today. Only started it 22 years ago. Solid B title -- A for dungeons, B for overworld game, and C for repetitive music that makes the mute button my best friend. (And yes, this is a second or third tier title for me, Dep. :) )

      I love the music myself, but I like the sound of the SNES soundfonts in general.

    3. DoctorTom

      DoctorTom

      It's not the sound, it's the repetitiveness.

    4. AtariLynx Lover

      AtariLynx Lover

      You have a very good point there on the repetitiveness.

  19. While for certain games I refuse to use a guide, conservative use of walkthroughs can be great for getting through those second and third tier games on your backlog (CO) list, especially if your list is as long as mine is. Why wander for dozens of hours trying to figure out what to do next?

    1. DeputyMoniker

      DeputyMoniker

      Oh, no. I won't let you of the hook that easy. Tell everybody what this "second (or) third tier" game is.

      I feel like this statement of yours needs a little context. Lol. (Just giving you a hard time, brotha)

  20. PS Now subscription to cost $15-20 per month

  21. My advice? Focus less on being a better pilot and more on being a better man.

  22. It warmed my heart today that my children made a point in their Christmas cards to talk about how much they appreciate God's gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, over 2,000 years ago.

      I appreciate Jesus' sacrifice as much as the next fellow.

      2-4-6-8, who do you appreciate!

  23. Tomb Raider PS4 -- solid B+ -- great shooting, some solid puzzles (bit too simple), some climbing/clambering (bit too easy), decent ending boss. Good story but mediocre voice acting. Excellent graphics and sound. NOT ENOUGH TOMB RAIDING.

      TheObscureGamer

      I still need to beat the first tomb raider lol
