This place hasn't seen any activity in a little while.

Terraria is at 75% off on Steam just now. It's a game I've always been tempted to try out but always decided against buying it for whatever reason. With the release of that recent update to the game though, I think I feel more inclined to check it out now. Can't really go wrong at £1.50 anyway. I can't even buy a pint with that money!

I remember buying that when it first came out and playing it for like 6 hours straight and then never touching it again. Might have to give it a go again with the new update.

Am I the only person incredibly bored with GTA V?? Haven't even finished the story and yet I feel like I could never play it again and not miss anything. Think i'll force myself to finish the game and then put the game away for months until the dlc comes out.

In other news, I got Pokemon X and apparently i've been playing nearly 20 hours and not even got to the second gym yet.

I wouldn't say I'm bored of it, I just played it so much when it was released that I've sort of worn myself out. I've spent quite a lot of time playing Online too but so many of the missions are similar. I hope the heists are fun. I've not been on GTA in a few days which in a sense means I'm "wasting" my XBL trial which probably only had a couple weeks left.

Right now I'm more interested in starting Mass Effect 3 at some point. Also thinking I'll probably check out Terraria later today. Been watching a few videos on it. Looks pretty cool.

Also want to get back into StarMade at some point. I was really enjoying that game then just abandoned it. I even paid for it a while back despite it being a free game right now. Worth checking out if you like the concept of a minecraft style exploration and building game set in space with planets to land on and stuff. It's really cool and the guy who developed it is constantly adding new stuff at rapid speed. Back when I started playing there were daily updates.

Perhaps thats the issue im having too. Online was fun but now theres not much to do apart from grind for hours to level up and get money so I can buy new vehicles.

Until Pokemon came out, the only 2 games I played were GTA V and Civ V.

It's upsetting that this page keeps falling down the topic list.

Anyway, the other day I spent like an hour trying to do the Mario 64 exploit in Whomp's Fortress where you wall jump off the side of the cage and land inside. Did it after said hour with many failures and rages, then did it twice more pretty quickl after. Felt good ^_^

Someday I shall try a decent speed run! Someday...

Yeah, I guess.

Isn't he also wearing a helmet from Skyrim? The first scene definitely seems like a reference to the The Elder Scrolls series to me.

Reminiscent, anyway. The other guy's outfit was looking pretty Altmer-ish, too.

I beat the original Metal Gear from 1987. It's not that great of a game (even for the time) but was cool seeing so many things that showed up later in the series. It pretty much nails the formula Kojima has been repeating ever since. Metal Gear 2 is up next.

Recently I realized I like console gaming more than PC gaming. Like a lot more. Pretty much everything about it besides the graphical differences appeal to me. Maybe the console community is younger and immature, but I welcome that. I play with friends all the time so I don't have to listen to these other players and they usually just flat out suck balls at video games so in competitive multiplayer I do really, really well. Like when playing Battlefield on console I can finish top of the team consistently, whereas on PC I'm around the middle.

I'm starting to really want game cases and a collection again, and I like the idea of being able to sell my game when I'm done. I'm sick of digital copies even if I do get them significantly cheaper from platforms like Steam and GMG. I like getting away from my computer to go play games too. When I go to play a game on PC I just click on Steam, look through all my games and try to pick something out of the hundreds of games there to play. With my Xbox it's like beforehand I actually know what I want to play and I dedicate some time to playing that shit.

My roommate will be buying an Xbox One as soon as they become available again so I'll get to try one out before dropping a fat stack of cash on one myself (oh yeah, I'm totally getting on Xbox One over a PS4). So yeah, suddenly I'm really looking forward to the new consoles. I've even bought recent games for my 360 when I could have gotten them cheaper and in better quality for PC. I'm also considering selling this ~$800 PC to just get a cheaper one. Maybe even a fucking Chromebook, all I need is a web browser. I feel like I've wasted so much money on this thing...

TOO FUCKING LONG, DIDN'T FUCKING READ:

I like console gaming over PC gaming, fuck you

I've had the same thing. I used to do PC gaming religiously, but then there was just a very very long stretch of time that I didn't have a PC good enough to play anything on, and still don't' really, and I just lost all interest. I feel like I shouldn't have bought this new PC either.

I am really excited for the new consoles, and I imagine I'll get a PS4 some time around christmas. I'm just kind of fed up with my Xbox. It has countless issues and now I can't even access LIVE anymore because they changed the terms of use and that means I need to give them my dad's like 5 year old password that he set it up with when I first got it and I wouldn't be surprised if even he couldn't remember it.

I guess it's just starting to really seem as old as it is.

I feel the same way but I still struggle to get excited about any aspect of next gen consoles. Pretty much every series I like went to shit this gen and it's only going to get worse. Every new game I buy is a disappointment. Gaming in general is a disappointment.

I feel like the games industry has nothing more to offer me, but then I'm like what the fuck else am I supposed to do with my life. Gaming used to be a sort of constant influence, something to look forward to and save up for throughout the year, but I doubt that enthusiasm will ever come back. It's like an industry of pure greed and empty hype. I dunno man, shit just sucks.

I'm dropping in to ask the regulars here a question. What do you guys think of Rev3Games? Personally I like them I just wish they had Anthony show up more often.

Just downloaded Dark Arisen. I figure it's worth another run to see how it's expanded on vanilla.

they're masterworks all, you can't go wrong!

I've watched them for quite a while, like since way before Adam Sessler (cause I'm super cool). Max leaving was terrible, and uh, yeah. One of my favourite YouTube channels and I'm not even sure how I found them. I think it was through the DTOID Show, which is now also unfortunately gone along with Max.

Went back and looked at what their first video was... yeah now that I think about it I definitely think I started watching them when they announced the channel. This makes me better than everyone, by the way.

Should I make space and get Dark Arisen? I've never played the regular Dragon's Dogma but heard story wise it doesn't matter.

I haven't played it. Just the regular game. It sounds like it's worth it, though. Dragon's Dogma is one of the best games I've ever played. I love it to death. I have yet to kill the dragon or progress through the Everfall, though, and both of those things seem like they're gonna be ridiculously difficult. When I was playing it last, I was just spending hours and hours grinding to level up in preparation cuz I'm right up to the part where you fight the dragon. I watched a video of it on YouTube and...Jesus...

What!? Daaaym, you're in for a treat.

It was very anticlimactic for me. I joined just as it was about to be destroyed (everyone online at the time contributes to its death) and didn't get more than one hit on it. Got a lot of great loot though.

Man, it has been so long since I played... wish I had a PS3 and PS+ so I could be playing Dark Arisen for free.

Shadow Wariror Classic Redux and Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition are on sale. The total comes to $4.98. Should I buy them?

Actually I saw the bundle is $3.74 so if I get these games I would get that to save some dough. I'm also thinking of buying Foul Play now. Any opinions on if I should buy this stuff?

Fucking Dark Arisen. One of my pawns died and glitched out of my party then it wanted 300k rift crystals I didn't have to get them back. This happened DEEP in BBI. I had to replace them with a shittt sorcerer that only hit 1k damage. Not very good in NG+ late BBI.

Oh my, I'm somewhat tight on money and I'm leaning towards the XONE, but I can get a PS4 with Killzone and 1yr of PS+ for $350. That means I get Killzone and PS+ free, and save $50. Fuck, how do I turn down something like that, but then also, how do I justify the credit I'll have... shit. Goddamn fuck shit.

Well, I don't have X Box Live Gold. In fact, I can't even go online with my 360 at all unless I bring it downstairs and plug it straight into the modem. I dunno, this shit looks fucking hard. I anticipate some yelling.

The best part is, I got the last copy in the store and possibly the city.

Shit, I didn't hear about this. Says it's on again Monday, but I doubt they'd have anything left... I also own all those games already, so... hm.

Not sure of the best place to ask this but are there any NG groups on Steam at all??

I'm in the mood for playing some Garry's Mod games or Civ V games online but feel as though they would be a lot more fun when you're in a group of people that you sort of know!

Finding myself playing PC games a lot more now but I feel as though I need to get into a group and play with others to make them even more enjoyable!
