  1. Omg you guys... I'm actually turning on my game system for the first time in nearly two months.

    Grad school is such a time sink.

      Sucks to hear the teacher's being such a hardass about it.  I hope everything gets better for ya!

      Gotta love those teachers that still give you a bad grade despite having the right answer just because you didn't follow the same exact methodology they wanted you to. I remember having a couple of those back in the day. I also remember they were a pain in my butt, to put it nicely. 😅

  2. So, despite that I'm an individual with 10ish years of data analytics experience, I applied for a data science internship with Disney (because the only qualification needed is that you're in school, and I'm in grad school).

    Despite that I have several really good job opportunities elsewhere that I'm interviewing for, I think I'll put Disney at the top of my list.

      Well if that wouldn't be the most brag-worthy thing ever for a child :P

      Fingers crossed.

  3. Hey All! I'll be on the forums less and gaming less for the unforeseeable furture. Family responsibilities, full time job that's requiring overtime regularly, job hunting/ filling out resumes, and recently starting grad school.
    I'll still be doing all the admin work for the events that I'm running, but that's about it.

    Didn't want to disappear and leave people wondering what had happened!

      It sucks when all those responsibilities start to pile up, but such is life. Best of luck out there. We'll keep everything clean and organized on your profile here for when you come back. :)

      Goodluck I am sure you will smash through it all fantastically well. I hope it is acceptable to send you a random distracting message every now and then. Goodluck, Best wishes to you and your family 

  4. Just saw a post where someone used the wrong there/their/they're four times in a single post. Here's a grammar lesson to help everyone remember:

  5. Valthirian Arc  is $4.49 in the US store right now. At that price point, you simply can't ignore it! And I hear there's a really great guide written for it by someone awesome :awesome:

      It's a facility-building plus hack-and-slash game. Really fun battle system. Some people say it gets repetitive, but I didn't find it to be.

    3. NERVergoproxy

      It's in my ps store wishlist. I'm waiting for under 4$ xD maybe around fall or xmas. xD

      Already bought.

  6. Time and Eternity - Finished the first chapter. This game certainly isn't as bad as the 42 metacritic score would lead one to believe. Definitely not the best JRPG, but it's not terrible either.

    1. Dr_Mayus

      Dr_Mayus

      It was one of the first RPGs  I played on the PS3...it definitely isn't great but there are a lot worse games out there.

    2. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      Agreed, the game isn't nearly as bad people make it out to be. It's not perfect either, it's actually pretty rough on some edges, especially towards the ending. But I did have a good time with it. Hell, even the music (what little was of it) was fantastic. This guy made that awesome OST possible, and he has worked on some other hit games in the past.

       

      I think Time & Eternity lacked polish and a lot more time in the oven to come out even better. It totally looks like the kind of game that lacks a proper budget. In the end, it was just an okay title for me despite the interesting setup.

      @Honor_Hand, one of the first things I noticed was the music! Sometimes I'll just sit in the title menu to listen to that song 😄

  7. Husband bought me a trinket to commemorate being in the top 1% of trophy hunters on this site's leaderboards.

      I just platted Days Gone and ended up liking it sooo much more than i expected to. Makes me even more jealous of your neat trinket =) 

  8. Platinum #121 - Donut County - Had fun with this quick little game... definitely recommend for anyone looking to break up gaming tedium.

       I don't think you should focus on distance. It's more important how long your exercise is. Anything under 20 min will not do much good for your overall fitness in long run. For start try to get to 30 min. It's better to do slower pace and longer duration. Don't push yourself, stretch at least 5 min before and after.

  10. Donut County - Having fun with this game, but having even more fun learning that they have some really cute merch to go along with the game. Hopefully their store opens back up soon so I can grab one of those Have A Garbage Day t-shirts and a raccoon-donut pin :D

    1. MidnightDragon

      Mmm....donuts...

  11. So I just decided to bike 5 miles in the 110°F heat. Was not smart. Should have just played video games instead.

      I went for a walk on Saturday in +41 heat (which is 105 F) and got about 2 blocks...said "fuck it" and turned around and went back home.

       

      Way too hot to be out

    3. eigen-space

      eigen-space

      "Unfortunately" this is my plan for the exercise that I sorely need.... and it's not getting any less hot anytime soon.

    4. zajac9999

      zajac9999

      I used to have to cycle about 7 miles each way to my gym, the summer here is about 100 F which was pretty gross. Couldn't imagine doing it at 110 lol. 

  12. Platinum #120 - NieR: Automata - Was not the biggest fan of this game... it got a little better, but still. Also was pretty mad that I could unlock ALL remaining trophies from the in-game trophy store. That Bullet Hell mini-game during the credits SUCKED.

      Congrats. Shane you didn't enjoy it so much, it was the last game I had on XB1 and I loved it, one of my top games of this generation.

    4. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      The struggle is real. I've been reading your updates on this game for a while and know that you weren't enjoying it in the slightest. It's a shame that it didn't live up to expectations. Judging from a few other opinions I've read, this title appears to be one of those that you either love it or hate it. :hmm:

       

      Great job on persevering through and obtaining the Platinum. 👍

  13. NieR Automata -- So, this game just TANKED in Chapter 11. "Oh, here's some signal jamming robots so that now you can't hack, fight, see, etc.... let's just make it so 2B can't run, jump, etc."

    Someone please tell me that it stops this stupid shit soon...

      @Copanele, well... fuck. I'm super prone to motion sickness with games... already have had some problems with NieR, especially the flight parts.

    3. Copanele

      Copanele

      @eigen-space you really didn't pick the best game in this case, damn! Because Automata will go bonkers in the latest sections camera-wise, if I remember correctly

    4. DamagingRob

      DamagingRob

      Lol. I remember thinking that part was dumb, too. 

  14. NieR: Automata -- Not really understanding why everyone raves about this game. It's pretty mediocre. I have almost zero idea what the plot is despite being nearly at the end of 2B's storyline. And the music in this game annoys me... it would be so much better if they just removed the actual singing that's in so many of the songs.

      Copanele

      Totally understandable :) that trophy shop is a godsend. Completely agree if you don't like this game, it's absolutely fine! Yoko Taro is known to be a nutbag honestly xD 

      Also for @PooPooBlast, as we discussed via PM...Diaper Man strikes again xD (not even Yakuza is perfect)

    3. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      That's a shame :l

       

      For those who don't know that's what @Copanelewas talking about :p.

      I think you'll understand it well enough. I watched the final ending on YouTube myself; not worth grinding all that crap for. :lol:

  15. Anyone have experience with Limited Run Games? I placed an order that said it would be delivered "Q2/Q3". I had hoped that the earlier quarter would be the case, but it's not. Do they tend to take to the very end of their quoted date range?

      @Honor_Hand, I'm not SUPER anxious about this game. I am, however, anticipating my pre-orders from NISA. Apparently they have a policy where if you order multiple pre-orders at the same time, they don't ship until all of them are available. I emailed them twice about wanting my games as soon as they are released, but haven't heard anything about it (and it's been about a month).

    3. Honor_Hand

      Honor_Hand

      @eigen-space Understood. Makes sense. One of the websites I order figures from also ships them with that same policy. What's weird is that they haven't gotten back to you in a month? That's super fishy. You haven't gotten anything in your spam/junk folders, right? Some emails sometimes sneak their way there. It has happened to me a couple of times.

       

      But yeah, you have pretty good reasons to be worried about your order. Hope it all works out for you. Maybe giving them a phone call could clear things up?

    4. IntroPhenom

      IntroPhenom

      I ordered Shantae and the Seven Sirens recently, and I believe an email from LRG informed me my copy would ship 2-4 months after the game's official launch day.  

  16. Platinum #119 - Broken Age - Decent enough game... can't say I enjoyed doing a speedrun for a trophy in a game where the fun comes from the dialogue, though.

      A lot of them in today's world. There didn't seem to be as many in the past.

  17. Broken Age -- This game just delivered one of the most clever poop jokes I've ever heard. Don't think I can be disappointed with this game after that.

    1. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Sounds like a game I'd enjoy :P

    2. eigen-space

      eigen-space

      @PooPooBlast, you wouldn't have to play it very long to get to the joke. It's about 30 minutes in (if you aren't skipping through everything).

  18. Platinum #118 - The Sims 4 - Yep... I definitely did this the "cheese" way of downloading all the families from the EA gallery. Followig @Bushido_Cypher's video made this super easy.

      I think they could've made it a little easier to where it didn't feel like "if you don't use this exact strategy, you're dead". 😕 But yeah, the earlier stages weren't too bad.

    3. eigen-space

      eigen-space

      @Masamune, the two ADV levels on the third set of maps were BRUTAL. I managed to get out of the last ADV map with 5 crystals remaining... was hoping to do all the levels Perfect but I was like, "Nah.... not retrying this".... might still go back to do it but I doubt it.

      @Masamune, yeah... these later levels are kicking my ass lol. I was able to get Perfects on the first 9 levels within 1-2 tries, but now I can't even clear all 30 waves of Level 10 even with 2 tries xD I guess it's time for videos.

      @AlchemistWer, yeah, I bought it a long time ago. Just booted it up and saw on the screen where it said Ratalaika and though, "Oh man...". At least this one only has a 50% completion rate, so it's not as bad as their other games.

  23. Platinum #116 - Gris - Wow, what a beautiful game! Thanks @Beyondthegrave07 for posting a status about it a while ago... you're the reason I decided to play it.
