Yeah, I guess.

Isn't he also wearing a helmet from Skyrim?

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.

How I got Assassin's Creed IV for free today and why I waited in line for five hours in the freezing cold.

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!

There is a Newgrounds group here on Steam.

We probably should but if you go the group you can add people from the group and play with them. I know Asandir, Jester, and Mike are in the group. As a side note Mike owns a bunch of games, 142 not counting DLC.

A VG related group sounds good. Haven't gone into any other forums on here in years. Just stick here in the VG thread.

Counting down the days until PS4 launch while hammering GTA Online. Level 51 right now and I've got the $400K apartment and all but one of the cars that I wanted to get, pretty much just playing for the sake of it now.

I've got about 50 PS3 games on disc and I must have well over 50 PSN and PS3 games from off the store. PlayStation Plus literally throws games at you. It's bad enough having one pile of shame :(
