Gamers what games are you playing? :)

MGSV is something special. I want to play it again, but I doubt I can sink in the time to unlock everything these days.

Never played any other metal gears, but I’ve picked up some of the story from osmosis from my brother playing all of them. We constantly have a plan to start one of those let’s play youtube channels on the backburner, and on the list of things to do is make me play through all the metal gears, and I’m allowed to skip the cutscenes but ONLY if I can guess what happens in the story.

Total WAR: Warhammer 3… Immortal Empires continues through ‘beta’. Its all but live. While Immortal Empires has been fairly stable its not been very balanced but its getting a lot better now.

WH40K: Mechanicus is free on Epic Games this week. Worth having for the audio alone. I’ve not played very far into it but its fun. I originally got it on a bundle on a Steam sale but its worth grabbing from Epic for free while you can.

I dont play video games…but im waiting for god of war ragnarok…

I want to watch them cutscenes and boss fights.

Some of these games have better stories than anything out on the streaming services or in theaters…

That’s true, but I’m starting to worry if this won’t have unintended consequences for the game industry. Facial mo-cap as introduced by Rockstar in “LA Noire”, I think, is the technology that has changed games most in the last 15 years or so. You wouldn’t have God of War or The Last of US without tech like that. BUT, I’m positive good games have been destroyed on the altar of “but we hired the Game of Thrones cast - it HAS to be good now” (Mass Effect: Andromeda). Blow all the budget on actors and mo-cap and hope no one notices how average the game itself actually is.

For Sony, it’s worked in God of War, The Last of Us, Horizon, and Uncharted. But I fear they’re taking their eye off the ball, pushing Uncharted movies and a Last of Us HBO show - From Acclaimed Game Director Neil Druckmann my ASS, he does not have sole writing credit on The Last of Us part 1 and it shows when he was given free reign in The Last of Us part 2. Anyways, I fear games are going to start to be written to get an HBO adaptation rather than because it supports the gameplay the devs have come up with. In some cases, you could argue that’s already happening, certainly I’ve heard plenty of complaints that God of War doesn’t play well in certain people’s opinion, and The Last of Us isn’t breaking any new ground with it’s gameplay, even 10 years ago when it was new.
We’ll have to wait and see.

Skipping cut scenes in a metal gear game? Sacrilege!

#735

Awesome game!!!


#736

Nice tubes! Did you find them all free-ish or are some of them purchases?


#737

The small one at the bottom was $5, and triple bnc crt was $40, the big JVC was also $40
I do have one crt I got for free but it isn’t in this shot. Goal is to have a wall for live visuals, but also I know I’ll dread moving if that ever happens lol

I have an early 2000s Samsung from when I was a kid, but last I used it it had pretty notice-able ghosting. Might have been the cheap old cables I used from when I was a kid… who knows.

I’ve gone to emulation for most of my retro gaming needs and a retrotink 5x for all the consoles I still have, so I don’t think I’ve turned that TV on in a few years now.

CoD is always a guilty pleasure. new one is OK. Sad they ruined Hardcore mode which is what I always played. But hey, at least shoothouse is back.


#741

Emulation is where it’s at! I use an hdmi to component converter, and an hdmi to composite converter
if you have space for it definitely recommend that with a converter

Watched the god of war ragnarok boss fights on youtube…

I havent sat through the whole game playthrough but…

Odin wasnt a satisfying final boss…
Odin could of been less wimpy.

They did do a good job with thor though so…

Decent but could of been better 7 out of 10.
