General / Re: Buying games for a system you don't own
« on: January 30, 2023, 06:22:59 pm »
Not often, but it does happen.

I bought several PS3 games (Black Friday deals) before getting my PS3. I had every intention of getting the console though.

My bother bought me "The Thing" for Xbox in 2001 or so as a gift. I found an Xbox a few years ago for 20 bucks, so it was probably 15 years before I got the console. Still in my backlog...in hindsight I should have kept it sealed, lol

I currently have 8 PS5 games, despite not owning a PS5. All sealed. Still undecided on the PS5. They are in stock now but I don't see any reason to drop 600 bucks after tax on one...nothing screams "play me!". Hoping for a cheaper "slim" model in a year or two.

I have 24 Wii games, but no Wii. I do have a Wii U and the accessories needed to play them all though.

I have 7 PS2 games, though I've never owned, or plan to own, a PS2. 4 are sealed.

Edit:
I have 3 switch games, all sealed. No plan to get a switch, but I may someday (I hate the joycons though).

I have 1 PSP and 4 vita games, all sealed. Don't own either system, but wouldn't mind owning them.

So I don't go out of my way, but if I see a great deal I'll pick up something for a console I don't own.

PS3 is my 2nd favorite console of all time, and my favorite Sony console. I play it still, and plan to for many years to come.

Someone shit on the pathway outside of our work. I open the office in the morning, so guess how I started my morning?  >:(

And we have no hose. I was out there with buckets of hot water and a toilet brush. It was an unholy amount of diarrhea.

Great start to the week!

Ewwww, I'm sorry you had to deal with that...disgusting. Hope you get hazard pay, lol

1st thing I heard today was one person call another a horses ass. The other person responded "Well, I am what I eat"

Not as gross as your story but I didn't start my day off on the right foot either....

Was he talking to his wife? LOL

No, that would have been hilarious though.

Classic Video Games / Re: Why are the NES era Consoles 3rd Gen and not 4th?
« on: November 21, 2022, 09:24:30 pm »
Historically, a new generation begins once a major upgrade in graphical quality has been reached.

With that said, Atari 2600 and Atari 5200 are formally considered to be a part of the second generation. The Atari 7800 made the shift to third generation.

It is similar to the Wii U and Switch, which are both a part of the eighth generation.


I'll never understand why the Wii U is considered 8th gen, and not 7th. All the games on it are 7th gen games (Looking at that are cross platform). Hell even the sports games end with 7th gen, no 8th gen sports games made it to the wii-u. I compare the wii to 6th gen consoles myself, though I'd rather the wii and wii-u be bunched together in the same gen then putting the wii in 8th. My knowledge of their consoles between the SNES and the Wii is non existent so I'm sure it's something there. Just my opinion, 'm far from an expert....just feel the wii-u is a 360/ps3 comparable console.

3rd person. I don't mind 1st person but if given the choice I'll always choose 3rd.

Beast - Exactly what it says on the tin.

The Wicker Man (2006) - After about 5 minutes I thought that maybe it wouldn't be as bad as I was expecting. After another 10 I thought it might actually be worse. It takes another full hour before it becomes the wackadoo movie that everyone thinks of it as. Takes way too long to get there, and it's not worth it at all. Atrocious script, filled with actors that have no idea what movie they are in, and worst of all, just boring.

It's been a long time since I've seen the original Wicker Man, but that sounds pretty much the same, lol. I'll def skip the remake.

I watched "Doom" last night for the 1st time since probably 2006 or so. I didn't really remember much outside of the 1st person shooter sequence, so i was pleasantly surprised that I found the whole movie enjoyable.

Think I'm gonna just end up bringing back out my Xbox 360 and hooking it up so I can just play Guitar Hero or Rock Band again.  I usually get in the mood to do this every year because there's nothing that's been as good as that since then lol


Doooooo it. Love these games.

The OG- Haunter House for the Atari 2600.

And an odd suggestion...Call of Duty cold war.

The Zombie game modes (I really only play the open world one) has special Halloween themes all month. Yeah, and all the zombies have pumpkins stuck on their heads. Its fun as all heck.

Chris Pratt as Mario borderline offends the senses not gonna lie. The guy is a C list actor at best and has borderline ruined 3 cashgrab franchises and is aiming for 4. I feel it makes no sense from any angle and was only done so the names will fill the seats. Cast stacking for the sake of it.

If Chris Pratt is a C-List actor (at best), how would including him be cast stacking, or how will it fill seats? I thought that's what A-list Actors do. If it were cast stacking, it wouldn't be for the sake of it, it would be to fill the aforementioned seats. People who make movies like this do it for one reason. It's not for the fans, it's for money.

I have no problem with people ruining cashgrab franchises...because they are simply cashgrabs. Sounds good to have less of them.

XB1 didn't become Backwards Compatible until 2017, so that wouldn't be the reason for those dates. It didn't even come out until the end of 2013.

According to this article, it became available November 12, 2015.

OK, still not 2012/2013.

I was mistaken. 360 games went BC in 2015, OG Xbox games were 2017.
