General / You guys ever get stuck in like a gaming rut?
« on: March 19, 2022, 08:47:04 pm »
I've gone what fees like 2 months without getting into a game.. Nothing I tried just seemed to click. It felt like I was forcing myself to play games that I'm "supposed" to like but I just end up being miserable the whole time. Today I said fuck it and threw in a game I know I love (Uncharted) and I'm having a blast! I'm done wasting time trying to make a game click for me, if I'm not enjoying I'm not wasting my time.

Modern Video Games / Forza Horizon 5
« on: November 11, 2021, 10:03:45 am »
Anyone playing!? I haven't played a Racing SIM or really any racing game since Gran Turismo 3 on the PS2 and I have to say this is reaallly scratching and itch I didn't know I had. I know Horizon has been around a little while, and this entry isn't exactly doing anything vastly different then the rest, but its new to me and feels really fresh. I'm digging how all the tracks are connected on the open world and you have to drive to get to your next race. I'm not that far in, but I can see myself putting a lot of time into this one.

Modern Video Games / Returnal Thread
« on: May 01, 2021, 12:26:26 pm »
Havent seen anyone really talking about this one yet (although I might have just missed it) so I figured I'd start a thread. It kinda flew under my radar till I saw an article make a comparison to Metroid which immediately piqued my interest. I haven't really look too much into it, I know there are some rogue like death mechanics in there and its a 3rd person shooter... but other than that I'm going into this one kinda blind. It's installing right now and I'm really looking forward to giving it a shot! Anyone else going to be playing this?

Classic Video Games / Letting go of the CRT
« on: December 03, 2020, 11:33:21 am »
I think its time for me to get rid of my CRT... I really don't want to, but it just takes up so much damn space... I've been looking into things like the retrotink and it seems like there are plenty of solutions out there to play your old consoles on a modern screen but I just dont know how i feel about it... Do any of you have any experience letting go of your CRTs and making the transition to a modern screen? Please share your success stories and setups, I need some inspiration!!

Modern Video Games / Um... Tony Hawk Remaster!!???
« on: May 14, 2020, 01:38:38 pm »
So I can't believe people aren't talking about this here yet! I cannot explain how psyched I am for this! I know there are a lot of people really wanting a new Skate game... but I will always love those first 3 Tony Hawk games.

User Feedback / droaa
« on: February 21, 2020, 04:24:57 pm »
I couldn't find a feedback thread for droaa so here we go. Droaa reached out to me in response to a post I made looking for an original Xbox S-type controller. He happen to have one and gave me a totally fair price on it. The controller was packed well and shipped in a timely manner. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from droaa again! thanks man!

General / Going Platinum
« on: February 05, 2020, 10:12:34 am »
When it comes to playing games, I've never really been a completionist; closest I ever got was in 2000, me and a buddy spent the entire summer trying to get to 105% in Crash Bandicoot but only made it to 100%... After that I never really cared about completing a game, I just play through the story and do what ever side quests/missions I want till I get bored. So this year, one of my gaming goals will be to obtain my first PSN Platinum trophy.

So I'm coming to you to ask for suggestions. I want it to be a game that's not insanely difficult (Please no Dark Souls) but also I'd like to feel a sense of accomplishment after finishing it, also nothing that will take me like 200 hours to get lol. So with that what are some good games to be my first Platinum?

Hardware and Tech / Genesis Model 1 AC Adapter
« on: February 02, 2020, 04:31:37 pm »
Can anyone recommend a good replacement AC adapter for a Genesis Model 1. Everything I see on Amazon has terrible reviews, it looks like they all are a little under powered and cause a bit of interference with the video signal?

Modern Video Games / PS4 Remote Play
« on: January 21, 2020, 04:28:51 pm »
I recently started using the PS4 Remote Play feature on my laptop and holy shit has it changed gaming for me! My wife is often hogging the tv (I'm cool with it) so I usually resort to some sort of handheld system/my switch, but after figuring out that I can play my PS4 through my laptop its all I want to use now lol and it makes me even more excited for the PS5 to come out.

Anyone else using remote play?

General / On Why Organizing Alphabetical by System Sucks...
« on: November 19, 2019, 12:55:18 pm »
So to bounce off the previous thread by oldgamerz I wanted to discuss why I hate organizing alphabetically. Now to preface this, I want to clarify that I DO organize all my games alphabetically by system because clearly it's the best method (j/k) BUT there is one thing that bugs the living shit out of me and that's when games in a series change their naming scheme... Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I've got Tomb Raiders all over the place, and its not the only series that does it either; Star Tropics/Zoda's Revenge anyone??

But the one that pisses me off the most, and the one I REFUSE to separate is The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure's of Link. These proudly sit together in their golden glory, right in the middle of my NES shelf, totally out of alphabetic order and will always stay that way.

Marketplace / Xbox 360 and Games (Please Read)
« on: July 11, 2019, 02:29:10 pm »
Ok, I'm not quite sure if this kinda item is allowed; if not please let me know and I'll happily take it down. I have a 60GB HDMI Xbox 360 with custom firmware on the DVD drive which allows the system to play Homebrews and backups. This system will NOT allow you to connect to xbox live due to this. The console will ship with the complete power brick and one wireless controller. I'll also throw in my DVD Binder filled with around 150 or so uh.. will call them "home brews" ;) I'm looking for $150 PLUS shipping on this guy. Not sure what shipping will run, but the binder of discs does add a bit of weight so keep that in mind please. If you have any questions, or would like more information please feel free to reach out to me. Oh in case you were curious its running Dashboard version 2.0.15574.0

Time to do some more cleaning, out with the old in with the new! I'll be updating this as I work my way through some boxes in the garage starting with this box of strategy guides and other misc stuff. These guides have been used unless otherwise noted, the older the game the more the guide has been used. If you are interested in something please let me know and I will be more than happy to provide detailed info/pics. Prices include shipping to the US via USPS media mail, additional shipping options available upon request

General / Looking for your opinion PS4 pro vs Apple Watch
« on: June 28, 2019, 01:03:30 am »
First of all, feel free to delete this if this isn’t the place for it.

So my birthday is coming up and my wife asked me what I want. I’m torn between a PS4 pro and an Apple Watch. I currently have an OG PS4 hooked up to a 1080p 120hz tv. I’m wondering if the pro upgrade would be worth it for the improved frame rate/super sampling. I like the idea of an Apple Watch but with a new model possibly being announced in September I could just ask for the new one for Christmas. I know this is kind of a first world problem but I just figured I’d get some other peoples opinions on the matter

General / Are save states in retro games cheating?
« on: May 29, 2019, 04:45:57 pm »
I've been playing the Castlevania Collection on the Switch and originally I had no intention of using save states; but I'm at the point where I'm not sure if I have to time to beat some of these old games with out them. I kinda have mixed feelings about it, on one hand, save states don't do anything to make the encounters easier; ie the enemies arent nerfed and I'm not buffed; but on the other the game originally did not have the ability to save, so you are playing the game in a way that the creators never intended.

I think I'm leaning towards not cheating, the more I think about it I start to realize that saving in a game has pretty much become the standard and that if the original developers created the same games now, they would probably have followed modern trends and included the ability to save your progress.

Thoughts? Opinions?
