  1. I tend to turn green with VR but, I’ve noticed that my “VR legs” have gotten stronger over time, and can play a lot longer than in the beginning. 

    Still, every now and then, it seems like the stars align in such a way that all of a sudden I get hit with that stomach churning vertigo. 

    Did about 4 hours straight in No Mans Sky. Was doing great. After taking off from the surface of yet another planet, I turned my head to look out the left window of my ship, as I was skimming over the surface, to eye up my next landing spot. Wham!!! Nausea out of nowhere. 

    Immediately took off the PSVR. 

  2. I’ll be getting one at launch, as well as the PS5.


    Definitely more excited for the PS5, since Xbox really doesn’t have much, by way of exclusives, that I care about anymore. I’m just a tech whore, and would like to have one. Kinda interested in whatever they’re cooking up for the next Halo, but totally over the whole ‘Gears universe. Played the hell outta the first 3, and have had enough. 

    The only place this new Xbox will fit, will be on the top shelf of my rack. Going to have to change things around. I hope the PS5 isn’t vertically designed. 

  3. Just “finished” the game, about an hour ago. Put 186 hours into it, at this point. 

    That was THE LONGEST “ending”, I’ve ever experienced. To the point where it was grating on my nerves. 

    I’ve really enjoyed the gameplay but, I think the over arching story is just way to nonsensical. Convoluted on steroids. 

    Anyhow, keep on keeping on!!!

  4. I’m liking it, so far. Very early as well. Basically on my very first mission, to the very first “knot”.  

    I think the desolation of the gorgeous environment is going to keep me drawn in. It was one of the main things I loved about SotC. The loneliness and isolation, for some reason, draws me into games that have it. 

    Probably will see this through to the end. 

    ...and it’s damn weird, so far.

    I'm from May of 2003.


    Still remember the Phantasy Star Online nights with the HTF crew, then moving over to Star Wars Galaxies with many of them which coincided with the birth of this place, and of course the Wolfenstein Tournament, or The Greatest Moment in E-Sports History as it has become known - with Grooving, DVDSteve, Scar, Ant1, Brett, Player LUV, graph, most of the regulars here, and a bunch of names I've forgotten. #FacePasters4Life (I can't even remember what the damn team name was, but I think that was it...)


    15 years isn't as long as it used to seem.


    Lol, Morgan.


    Morgan? As in Morgan Jolly???

  6. Can’t believe we’ve all been here that long already. Seemed like yesterday the “Free Romier” event was happening, back in our days at the Home Theatre Forum. Lol. 


    Anyone ever visit the old video game forum over  there? I can count on 1 hand the amount of times I’ve been there over these years.

    I hope they get cross play going soon. I'm probably the only one here that'd be playing on PS4.

    I feel like I dropped out of Destiny 2 too long ago now, and I should just wait until D3 at this point.   Besides I think I can only manage one of these type of games at a time.  Maybe I do go back to destiny after seeing how the other two play.




    Miss seeing you on Destiny!! I’m still playing it. I have a feeling I’m going to stop during the next “season”. It’s going to be all about Gambit, and I’ve played enough of that. 


    Been enjoying the Anthem demo, mostly. One thing Destiny definitely has over Anthem, is better gunplay. They just feel superior in pretty much every way, so far. 


    Im waiting to see how the reviews go before I buy this game.

    It really doesn’t matter. One thing to keep in mind is that “The Frozen Wilds” is a lot more difficult than the main game. The new machines they added in the expansion are really tough, and you want to level up Aloy as much as possible. I would definitely save it until near the end of the main storyline.


    Very true words!! I thought I was pretty badass after beating the main game on the hardest difficulty. That very first machine you face in the DLC, handed me my ass on a platter. 

  9. Holy crap: the install is real!!!! Just opened up the game box, put the data disc in, (not the game disc), and after an hour of sitting here watching it load, I’m now on the game disc, with another 58 minutes showing on the install time. 


    Kind of wishing I would’ve bought the digital version, and had it preload. 


    Loved John Marston’s story, and the whole world of RDR1. Greatly looking forward to playing this, one day, after it finally loads from disc....

  10. The “Next” update brought me back. Was a bit of a learning curve since they redid pretty much the whole way I used to make money: mining emeril. 


    Definitely an an improved game. And definitely still with it’s share of bugs. Need performance improvements. Runs kind of crappy on my ps4 Pro. 


    Wonder how how it is on the Xbox One X?
