  1. There may be some truth to this; however, is it me or had this maxim grown over the years? I used to spend thousands of hours on my NES and SNES as a form of comfort and entertainment without the cost of frustration or other negative impacts but as gaming has evolved it has been much less so. I first noticed this paradox with the arcade fighting game scene, then to online shooters (*ahem, SOCOM), gaming becoming mainstream and lastly trophy hunting. I suppose it could be the stressors I have now are much different than when I was a kid. I do know this much, I cannot play games anymore when I am upset or stressed out...it's a pretty counter-productive experience.
  2. Glad I am not the only one in this boat. 😰 I'm in my late 40's and have had nearly system from the Nintendo and Playstation tree, but for the most part I cannot bear retro gaming for more than a few minutes. I have recently dusted off my PS2, but even then...things like save management felt arduous. I think the PS3 is where I draw the line. My hat does go off to these speedrunners that put thousands of hours into these games though.
  3. Wow, some fierce competition here. Too bad we can only pick a few. Anyways, congrats to all the guide writers for making the cut!

  4. I think I am going to pick this one up. I saw one of favorite content creators (FilthyRobot) play this awhile back and I heard it's addicting.
  5. Persona 5 is an excellent game, but if you're not used to this type of game it can be quite jarring for your first JRPG. It's very time consuming, requires quite a bit of reading and will require a guide. I'm going to steer you away from the pack here and actually recommend Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the Witch. Story is touching and easy to follow, fantastic music and art design, simple combat system and the breeding familiar function is quite enjoyable. Also, with any JRPG you have to expect some ridiculous post-game grinding and this one is tolerable. Also, it can be played on Easy and can be completed in one playthrough.
  6. Actually, the only game that I feels "old" / can't believe is 10 years old is the MGS trilogy. I think this mostly due to the fact that there hasn't been any other remasters/ports of those games and yet those games still hold up.
  7. I don't own one but I'm interested in owning one or two (handgun and shotgun); however, they are just way too expensive compared to other things I like to purchase. Also, there's own two weapons I'm proficient with due to my military experience and feel uncomfortable owning a gun that I don't have experience with; I know there a firing ranges and such but that's another cost and takes time away from my other priorities.
  8. I don't really trophy hunt anymore, but may check out this DLC if there's a good deal that combines them all. I knew there some updates, but didn't know that there was THIS many updates.
  9. Nothing recent really stands out as of late; however, here's what comes to mind: Firelink Shrine - Dark Souls Chapter 2 (Disco/Club Level) - Max Payne 3 The Clockwork Mansion - Dishonored 2
  10. I'm not in the loop of the whole "Sony censoring Japanese games" thing as perhaps that gaming genre is out of my lane, but unfortunately I am afraid that you are going to find that most CEOs and company bigwigs are as devious and abhorrent as you can get. You just don't get that high on the food chain without being able to slither around a little bit and once you do have that much power and clout, it's quite easy to develop some form of a God complex. That's why I never buy into the social stances, moral high ground and slogans of these corporations send out, as they will contradict themselves in reality. I do find it odd though that IGN, which reports every other meaningless infraction in the gaming world, seems to have missed this one.
  11. Or it shows they (whoever "they" is I guess) have no taste. Since Hitman 3 is really the only game I bought and played this past year, my opinion is as valuable as a can of sardines, but I fail to see how a game that won Game of the Year for the Golden Joysticks Awards didn't even it nomination in any category (unless I missed one).
  12. Wow, didn't know that. May have to expedite my purchase.
  13. Thank you so much for this! I was offered a Rushdown and Mental Fortress early on, but choose Rushdown (thankfully) but never saw Mental Fortress again or Inner Peace unfortunately. Luckily has able to grab the Holy Water, Teardrop Locket and Violet Lotus. Made it to Act 3 with 5 cards and decided to drop a Strike+ for a Wallop+...until I faced a Writhing Mass and got stuck with a curse. Then I got a Peace Pipe in a chest, fill in the last card with Pressure Points and beat the Awaken One with 5 health. Completely nerve racking.
  14. I just assumed when they added trophies to the PS3, it was supposed to be part of the social aspect of gaming (i.e., you can see what other games people played). The PS4 furthered this by adding trophy accomplishments to the What's New feed. If they did remove it, they would have to replace it with some social feature like "Hours Played". I have over 500 hours in Overwatch and think that would be cool to see. Also, God of War was the only game I know that shared a player's journey with the What's New feed.
  15. I thought the pinnacle of the over saturation of this game was when it released for the Switch. I was wrong. 🙁
