  1. So I've actually been struggling with which console to purchase at launch. I'm heavily invested in the Microsoft ecosystem, so having the backwards compatibility is a huge selling point, especially at launch. But I haven't really been impressed with anything other than the power of the hardware for the Series X. I've only really been enjoying my PS4 in the past few years thanks to exclusives and PSVR, and I'm pretty stoked to try the new controller. Plus I think the console looks ugly as sin, but I absolutely love that about it. I'm excited to show that off on a shelf.
  2. I was playing solo. It was very limited in what you could do/explore in thirty minutes. I didn't even really get to the crafting/resources portion, but if say if you liked the world they've created (and it is awesome), and are a fan of survival, base building, etc. - it should be fun solo. I can see it really shining with multiple players though.
  3. Game Preview for Grounded dropped today - and on Game Pass - anyone thinking about giving it a try? Apparently it's got only about 20% of the planned content at there moment, but I really enjoyed what I played of the time limited demo.
  4. Strangely enough I just played a bit of Red Alert on my Xbox One the other day!
  5. Haha, good to see everyone! I was just sitting around and thought I'd drop by to say hi, and see how everyone was doing. I'm enjoying some paternity leave (Kid #3 is almost a month old!), and generally trying to stay sane - this is month 4 of working from home for me. Everyone's safe and healthy and we're gearing up for remote learning starting in a few weeks for my two oldest. I really feel like I should be playing more games nowadays, but I'm old and find myself watching Netflix at night (even though I'm still buying games). Missed you guys!

  7. Hi. I'm Chris. On and off again poster here at LCVG. Today I am "on again". I'm 32, married (just over a year), and my wife and I are expecting our first child (a daughter) in about a week. I expect my game time to falter a little in the coming months, but I'm sure I'll still have some time for games. I own 2 360's, a PS3 and a Wii. And a lot of games. I don't necessarily play all of them though. I do prefer multiplayer games to single player games, but I have a weakness for JRPGs (mostly FF games). And... that's about it.

  9. Word has it that Obsidian and Gearbox are developing the Sega "Aliens" games. http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/44985
  10. I also just realized that I'm working at the same place, although I've now been hired on by the hospital full time. Benefits, 401k, union, all the niceties. But I hate my job now. I'm talking full on loathing of it. I've reached a ceiling where I'm not learning anything new, I'm getting all the shitty projects dumped on me, and I'm generally the unhappiest I've been in the 4 years I've been here. Thankfully I'm moving down to Charlotte, NC in a few months (after a retro raise and my taxes in April) and I'll hopefully have a great new job. Speaking of which... Anyone do IT in th
  11. WHOA. Romier, you had a daughter? Congratulations!
  12. Thank you. Thank you. It's good to see everyone. Ok, my last test. I'm done and ready to stop lurking.
  13. Well hello there! Now I remember where I had to go to find all those animated .gifs I liked!
  14. I'm so confused because of the hot Grace Park signature!
  15. Here's my first question for the Dreamcast owning crowd - What is the best way to get the best picture quality from my DC? I can do component, s-video & composite, but is there a recommended setup?
  16. Romier, that would be excellent. I've always thought the DC was the best system noone bought. Now I'm looking forward to getting stuff for it! Right now this is what I've got (most of it came with the bundle I got on Half.com): EGG Typing of the Dead Sega Marine Fishing Sega Bass Fishing (with a fishing controller) Street Fighter Alpha 3 (My favorite SF game) Street Fighter III - Third Strike
  17. Well, because of threads like this, and Brians lovely photos of his Dreamcast collection, I bought the bullet and purchased one. Along with some VMUs, controllers, and other crap that will sit around until I sell it to Romier. Now, being that I owned a DC a LONG time ago, and have no memory of what the good games were, can anyone fill me in on what games are necessary for my collection (imports are ok too)? Bear in mind I like almost all genres of games, and I love trying out new stuff. Also a recommendation of something that will let me play import games is welcomed too.
  18. All you need to watch is the preview for next weeks to determine what happened. You guys are right. It was subtle, but that's what happened.

  21. I only remember Doctor WHo from watching it on PBs when I was very young. I remember a bunch of different Doctors, and the Daleks. Thats about it. But I can tell you, I'm loving this first episode of the new series.
  22. Will you also boycott the NFL and NFLPA and all their licensed merchandise? I'd like to, but I won't do it. I like watching NFL games and my Eagles too much. This whole thing is just a damn shame. EDIT: Your sig just answered my question. [/b] Well, I traded in all my EA games yesterday at my local Gamestop. And I bought KOTOR2, PoP:WW, Karaoke Rev vol. 3 and Final Fantasy 1&2. Truth be told it wasn't hard parting with any of the games. I won't be purchasing any EA products until their contract with the NFL expires. As I said earlier, I place equal annoyance on all three part
