Modern Video Games / Re: What's your thoughts on video game morals?
« on: November 24, 2020, 02:35:04 pm »
I never understood why nudity is restricted, I can agree that sex is on the borderline with what I want in my video games but, covering up nudity is always something I hated,  and angered me what does that do anyway, well it restricts people and makes them need to watch porn to see any kind of body at all. it's stupid. And yes I am actually a Christian, I think people should be more free, covering any type of ass or other body part makes no sense. I mean what is the point?

this following opinion is controversial.

In the 20th century  religious organizations made a huge stink about not showing any type of nudity or skin to the general public. mostly the churches, yet we should all know how perverted a lot of the churches and private schools were in the 20th century. Now from what I know before the 20th century nudity was considered acceptable artwork, I don't know what happened, but a lot of religious organizations is mainly to blame for all the censorship. Imagine if there was no such thing as swear words, think about it. What is a swear word if it does not mean anything at all?
every language has forbidden swear words, but who judges what a swear word even is? I could say the word APPLE and everyone in some foreign country could get offended think about it.

Believe me I'll try not to get caught swearing in front of a kid, but what the hell is a swear word anyway, The word GAY used to mean happy now it means something offensive.

I don't mind the BEEP when someone swears I think it makes it more funny, especially when you hear a BEEP on the TV and the persons mouth get blurred out that is hilarious to me

A memory I carried all my life

I and others believe that the world has already ended, when I was young in the early to mid 1990's, I remember waking up in the middle of the night, than witnessing a violent earthquake, and the sound of what sounded like a low flying passenger jet airplane. Well technically I do live close to an airport, but I figure a low flying 747 would have not made a that magnitude of shaking that happen,  it was the most terrifying thing in my life, about 3 seconds everything was black. I woke up hours later and everything seemed normal at first. and shortly after that happen to me, I noticed things like movies had been altered, for example the movie alien 1 had a terrifying scene erased, strange before this happened. Alien 1 the movie had an ugly scene of a human robot getting torched, 6 or 7 times, after that every time i watch that movie I notice that the robot only gets the flamethrower 3 times in the face instead of 6 or 7 times in the face. The VHS itself appeared to be altered and the tv even never showed that scene again, not that I care but it was interesting.

If this is true that the old world already ended that could explain a lot.

(edit) when I mean the world ended I meant we could all be inside some sort of hellish afterlife today

No but a forced vaccine with prosecution and shaming if you don't is already a bigger prison than group homes could ever be.

Probably, but lets hope the shot does not give us worse symptoms, it's not like the government cares about it's people. especially in America.

Most vaccines of the past are made from a dead, or mostly dead version of a virus, so basally in flu shots in case you do not know is basically a mostly defeated version of the flu. That is designed to be injected in order for the normal human bodies to absorb and grow immune to. Sometimes the result can be successful, but sometimes things can get worse depending on the person. I will not refuse. I guess this is the main reason why there is no cure yet. because it needs to be tested first

[My article or paranoid delusion depending on how you look at it]

I lived inside 2 adult group home for 4 years of my past, in most group homes you can only have the clothes on your back, as pretty much your only possessions. I was lucky, that I could have my own video games and a PC of my own. In which is vary unusual for group home regulations. After living in My first group home for about 1/2 or 2 years, it started to get robbed and stood up with people with guns. They never took anything from me, because they were after money.

I was thinking about American pandemics of the past century tonight, and how in the past people that were sick were sent to places like group homes or worse. I was thinking that they might eventually send people with Covid 19 symptoms to places like group homes. In group homes you can't even eat when and what you want, most people are forced to live with a small income based on circumstances.

 in most group homes you can't have video games or anything else of your own, and if you do, it could be stolen from you from other people in the facility or staff. In group homes, they usually force you to have a roommate, without choice. and sleep in the same room with him or her. Most group homes are segregated either with men or women in different homes.

Sometimes Staff will take advantage of people in the group homes. Chances are if this does happen to one of us or someone in our family, I can only imagine the worst. You might be able to have some other possession besides clothes. like maybe a small radio or tiny tv if you can find one, but 99% of your freedoms could be taken away. If you don't listen and do what the staff tells you, you can be restrained without a reason.  this is unsettling news that could happen not that it will but if it does.

In my local my local American state county, we have over 2000 Covid 19 victims and growing, what are your thoughts on this, it might never happen to any of you, but. it's just something to think about. Anyway if someone wants to send any of your family members to a nursing or group home tell not to. I've even seen people get seriously hurt in these homes, and staff is vary nasty in most of them.

If you have an group home or a nursing home story please share it here, if not then maybe you will just read this and think I'm delusional or something, this is an open discussion

20. wipeout 3 special edition


I added a game since with the quotes in all it would confuse the thread to re-name the 1st game., to aviod confusion. I would change my choice but it would just make things a mess. since changing a quote does not erase it from it's original form :-\

1: Moto Racer for the playStation 1 is the first one on the list,

 because even though I am not playing the game on real PS1 hardware I am still using AV-out

1. Moto Racer



Eh, it looks like much improved resolution and color compared to what it "should" (on non-modded North American PS1 hardware, anyway). The textures were much muddier and duller in color. You couldn't have recognized any pattern in the floor tiles.

I only played that game on the PlayStation 3, and using AV-out standard on a CRT,  television without the smooth textures option enabled. if you are curious than just look up "Moto Racer" for the PlayStation 1 to see a better representation of the graphics, that is a lousy photo but it is the only photo I could find that didn't have a huge text. Note this game was also out for the Windows OS on PC, but as far as the looking up the PS1 version is apprers to have the same graphics as the PC version of Moto Racer

01. Moto Racer
02. Resident Evil
03. Gran Turismo 2

General / Re: How Much Do You Value Physical Video Game Compilations?

Thread Revival

Digital VS. Physically released Compilations

Limited Space Debate
Would you rather buy a video game compilation with a bunch of games on it? or would you much prefer to buy one video game individually?

Personally when it comes to  personal space I rather buy a physical compilation than buy a digital game period. what are some more of your thoughts? Would you rather the future be All Digital or are you like me and prefer the future to be with.  compilations or multi cartridges for consoles gameplay, or would you still want to buy a whole bunch of digital games. or a Digital Complication instead?

By the looks of the video game industry today I don't think it's gonna be both Digital and Physical copies at the same time, but what do you think will happen?

The likelyhood of someone going into your account is very minimal. [...]

I think that's being modest; it's highly unlikely you'd get your account hacked. The odds of you winning the lottery are higher than someone hacking your account. I mean, unless you're a dimwit that actually puts its account at risk, then sure.

[...] or a digital service shuts down. [...]

If digital services shutting down worry you, then yarr-harr-fiddle-dee-dee.

I have heard of people losing their steam accounts before but that is another topic

Because more often than not they have sales that give said game a huge discount that physical can't match at the time. I know I've bought games digital simply because it's something I have wanted to play and it happened to be cheaper at the time than the physical plus tbh, the amount of plastic I would have around if everything I bought was physical would be insane and I don't have the room for it. Plus convenience to me comes first and having that convenience of having in one machine rather than a bunch of disc from time to time is better for me.

Yes it is more convent to have 1000's of digital games rather than 1000's Physical games, I agree. but again what does a person do if someone breaks into their digital account? or a digital service shuts down. It would be just as nice to own a complete set video game compilation or volumles, bought in a set rather than relying any kind of remote connection

Just like they did with the SEGA Arcade games only released in Japan I think

The likelyhood of someone going into your account is very minimal. If there was some widespread account hacking from these services to be of worry then it would have happened by now. As for digital service shutting down, I guess we will cross that bridge when we get there. If I am at all honest, I'm not exactly worried nor thinking about what will or won't happen since thats not how I operate. Having all the games I want physically is not something I strive for like I used to as long as I can get to play them. I used to be very wary of digital but as time has passed, I have embraced it much more. Not to say that I don't care for physical, I still do but having the best of both worlds is what I like.

I also have some digital games myself, and I like playing them, but I really Really l. would like to just buy physical compilations games and consoles  (to save physical room)  a instead of going all digital for the future. That's just me, for me the best thing for a video game company would do is sell games in volumes and make all volumes available to the physical market. For me that would be the best of both worlds

Hi,

I've noticed for the last 2-3 years that the PS3 barely gets any sales within the PlayStation Store - Nor does the Vita for that matter.

So I was thinking tonight on the PS4 Store & how future content will be handled. A rise in concern came about in thinking that in time I might struggle to get Season Passes for games I own at a decent price?

The good news is that unlike the PS3 to PS4, the PS5 has catered the PS4 with backwards compatibility. Also the PS4 content is available on the PS5 Store (I'm assuming, I haven't got mine yet :P) But while it still may be accessible will they still continue to highlight it? I'm not expecting a sudden drop at launch of the PS5 but maybe 1-2 years down the line it could be a different story.

So I think from now on I will be looking out for DLC I haven't acquired if it goes on the weekly sales.


For a while now PS3 games have been a sold physically for low prices or at least the games I have for it. Why buy something digital? when you can buy that same game with a physical release. I would think most people who buy most games are collectors, anyway. I don't think digital on consoles will be as well received as on PC in the future.

General / Re: Questions About Your Experience With Steam App Me? Not Good
« on: November 17, 2020, 03:45:14 pm »
Has anyone ever ran into a game they bought off Steam that, you noticed the gameplay had been altered, certain levels impossible to beat.

(Wolfenstein 3D example) I had encountered a problem in this one level, no matter what I did I could not ever find the key on this one level. So I did a sneaky thing and downloaded a map editor and I found out that the missing key was stuck in an impossible to get to location. Mind you I played the free version of Wolfenstein 3D many times before downloading the Steam version, and the key was not in the same location as the original full version of Wolfenstein 3D.

Another one I encountered recently was Duke Nukem Duke It Out In DC, where on the Smithsonian level one of the switches was completely gone and I had to cheat in order to get this one key, because I swear to god that the needed access switch that was there in my CD copy was not there in the Steam version.

However Steam performance has increased and what I said in the first post is no longer an issue

I just recently have been playing a NA 1997 release PlayStation 1 game called Moto Racer, I think the game has some of the best PS1 graphics I've ever witnessed, I technically was playing it on a PlayStation 3 with AV-out but I don't have the graphic smoother on, so according to what I believe I think it would look the same on a real PS1 right?

1: Moto Racer for the playStation 1 is the first one on the list,

 because even though I am not playing the game on real PS1 hardware I am still using AV-out

My pretend Bid would be $75-$100 even if I were to sell these chosen gams in a lot all together

Homie, you might bid $75 on the; but no one else on planet Earth would. You’d be doing good to get $50 for the lot.

That is exactly why it's not a real bid ::)

Bottom line is I never sold anything before, and don't plan to in the near future, one of the purposes of this thread is for our community to get some insights from the gamer community here outside of Ebay. and Amazon. it's just an idea that I don'r think has been done before, thanks for the tip, I agree with you @Turf :)

I find it kinda funny that Seether was the first to respond.

I don't know, I think this is tricky enough when it comes to real values. For instance, I've pulled out about 35 NES games from my collection to put on a sell list that I am contemplating for real, but I have no idea what the best way to go about it would be. Nothing super valuable or rare in them. Of course I wanna get maximum profit because I wanna dump it all back into my collecting towards expensive games. When you bundle all together, resellers want it cheap. When you sell separate, it takes forever. I'm thinking like between $175 and $200. No sports, no shovelware. That's just based on what I've seen has sold similar, and I figure that's about what I've got in all of those too.

One thing seem sure, most games will never actually depreciate (unless you bought them new at retail).

Value can mean different prices for different people, for example what some people pay is not guaranteed to be a price that someone else would buy for. I thought this thread could get little interesting seeing how everyone is different and has different values

(edit) I did find this thread but it's not the same, but it might have some information, someone new posted it a while ago, and nobody received it

I AM NOT SELLING THESE GAMES. TO BE CLEAR. I REPEAT THIS IS ONLY A FANTASY THREAD. FOR EXAMPLE CHOOSE A GAME (not necessarily from my list) for example IF you were going to sell any video game. not that you are or will, but IF you were going to. or not

You can set a price for any game you choose,  it can be your own pretend lot or just a price you'd think a game deserves, anyway this is not a sales thread it's a thread where we can all discuss how much we think a certain game or lot of your own choosing could be.

Lets just pretend you are a seller and you were selling games in the future,  how much would you charge for certain games, here is my pretend lot. If I were to ever sell. all posts are open for both agreement and disagreement but not opened for toxicity.
