    What are everyone's thoughts on Fallout 76? I saw some footage of game play on youtube and it looks interesting. Not sure what to think about the multiplayer side of it though.

    My coworker tells me I really need to play Fallout 4. I have yet to play any of them.

    Fallout 3 is the best one.

    Anyone else playing Red Dead II yet?

    1) ive never played F3, but got it for free when I bought F4. Do I need to rectify that ASAP? (Especially since itís One X Enhanced and I have a X1X?)

    2) would also love to hear RDR2 feedback...Iím actually a bit concerned bc it sounds like there is a LOT of eating, sleeping, showering, washing your horse etc and other menial tasks. This is a trend I really dislike in gaming. Of course Iíll still buy it no matter what

    Yes. It's very cowboy simulator-y. Rockstar was aiming for an unparalleled level of immersion and realism and I suspect this will turn off a lot people.

    I personally don't mind it. I can see what R* was going for and the sometimes sluggish controls make a lot of sense within the context of the world they built. It feels like playing an actual Western.

    The only thing I can't forgive is the lack of fast travel. That is an.. interesting creative decision to not include a fully functional fast travel system considering the size and scope of the world.

    Yes...immersion. I agree with what youíre saying. But I liked when their aim was simulation and not immersion. Kinda like how cgi reached a plateau in the movie biz, so they opted for immersion instead with that 3D fad instead of continuing to polish their cgi. Hopefully the video game immersion thing will pass and games will get back to focusing on how fun they are instead of how real they are

    That being said my rdr should be here tmrw. Giddyup

    After about 10+ hours with RDR2, I can confidently say I am in love with this game.

    I'm hoping to put some hours into it over the long weekend. I bought it last weekend and mainly got through the tutorial section, which I really hate when it comes to games. Too linear.

    I just got to my first camp, so looking forward to exploring a little bit now.

    I'm about where I stopped playing FFX the first time with the HD Remaster. I'm still not a big fan of this game. It really comes down the battle system...it's so tedious and boring. And the music is very average, unlike basically every other FF game.

    Ok, here's the deal. I've been trying to hold off writing any kind of review of RDR2 until I was certain that I was over the initial fever pitch.

    Now that it's been out for a while and I've had a chance to pour some serious hours into it, my verdict is - this is one of the greatest interactive experiences I've ever embarked on.

    Detractors will be quick to cite some of its perceived short comings - yes the pacing is a little slow, yes the game takes realism to an extreme. But focusing on this is doing a disservice to the insane amount of care and detail Rockstar has poured into the game. Apart from being gorgeous to look at, virtually all of the games facets are inter connected in some way. Slaughter innocent folks, and you'll trigger legions of bounty hunters which hunt you relentlessly, causing you to expend precious bullets, which depletes your cash reserve, which forces you to hunt and sell game to cover up for your losses. Walk too long on the right side of the law, and you could miss out on potential challenges, which keeps you from unlocking collectibles, or random encounters which could in turn offer tantalizing rewards. The problem is choice.

    Then there are the interactions with NPCs. There is almost a seamless transition between the cinematic elements and player controlled segments. Sometimes they're one in the same. This game is so intricate and overwhelming and beautifully rendered, it's almost certain to live on in the pantheon of all time video game greats.

    And I'm only halfway through.

    Iím only a few hours in to the game, but itís really cool. Definitely an incredible attention to detail. Have already come across a couple of RDR1 Easter eggs, and I get way too giddy for them, much like crossover Easter eggs in any Stephen King movie

    I agree with everything you said. I've never seen immersion like this in a game like I have experienced in Red Dead Redemption 2. The level of detail and care is unprecedented.

    I'll give a quick example that really had me in awe.

    There's a mission where you have to track down this old outlaw and interview him for a book. When I tracked him down he was living a peaceful life on a farm.

    Things went south rather quickly and I unfortunately had to send him to the big farm in the sky. The only problem is he had pigs in a pig pen. I felt bad that they would now be stuck in there with no one left to tend to them, so I decided to open the gate to let them free.

    After, I of course went in the guy's cabin to steal his shit. Upon exiting his humble abode, I was horrified to find one of the pigs feeding on the man's body. His entire face was gone. My disgust turned to appreciation for all those involved with this game.

    Finished up the new Spider-man game a few days ago. I'm a competitionist so I just got the final secret photo location last night to finally get the one outfit I was missing. I also apparently got the platinum trophy without even realizing it. I'm debating on whether or not I want to play the game again on NG+ which is something I hardly ever do with any game.

    I enjoyed the game immensely. I might even dare to say that I liked it better than the Batman Arkham games. I loved how they ended it which leaves it wide open for a part 2.

    I've played one of the DLCs but now I'm kicking myself because I paid the $10 for the first one and now I'm realizing I could've paid $25 and gotten all 3.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    ^ That's when you know you truly love a game, if you Platinum it and still keep going.

    I platinumed Bioshock Infinite twice - once on PS3 and once in PS4. Then, I played it again just to experience the story. Can't get enough of it. Heck I'm thinking of giving it another playthrough now that I'm mentioning it.

    The first Bioshock is still the best one.

    I almost created another account on my 360 so I could get all the achievements in Fallout 3 again, minus the all three karma related ones.

    I'm at the point in Final Fantasy X where I just have to grind to fill up the Sphere Grid and fight all the Monster Arena monsters. I kind of hate that the bulk of the side quest content is seemingly endless battling. The FF13 series too has quite a lot of that too, but I actually enjoy that battle system, and it was much faster. There's a lot of elements of the FFX battlesystem that make grinding a pain in the ass. I wish you could manually sort your abilities, so you put your most used at the top. When grinding, stuff like Quick Hit and Hastega is so crucial, yet down at the bottom, so I have to scroll down all the time. Would also be nice to put the most used skill sections for each character at the top. I hate having to scroll down five options for my White Mage to use White Magic. It's also a pain in the ass that you have to have every character take an action for them to get XP, which you really need to do when grinding throughout the main story. But once you get Double/Triple AP weapons, those bonuses only activate if you're in the 3 man party at the end, so you have to grind several different parties, but some great grinding monsters are best with certain characters, making it take longer to level characters up because the battles are longer.

    I'll have to write a piece about revisting FFX and what I overall think for Counter Culture Shock. I definitely still prefer all the FF13 games.

    I liked the FF13 games ok enough but the story got so convoluted and silly I stopped caring midway though FF13.3. Never finished it.

    The first Bioshock game is certainly my favorite. I still remember playing that game for the first time and being blown away by the atmosphere and vibe. I still haven't played a game since with quite that kind of unique atmosphere.

    Bioshock 1 had better atmosphere but the Bioshock Infinite had a much better narrative.

    I love them both though, in a 1a - 1b type way. Just a have preference for Infinite's heavier lean into science fiction.

    So I just found out yesterday that there is a 2-disc set out for the PS4 that has every single Kingdom Hearts game that has been released thus far. It's called Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far. It contains 1.5, 2.5 and 2.8. Although some of them aren't actual games, just all of the cinematic cut scenes.

    I played the original KH1 and KH2 on the PlayStation when they came up but I never really kept up with all the different games that only game out for the handheld devices, so I've completely lost track of the story-line over the years.

    I think I might have 1.5 for the PS3 but it would be nice to have them all together for the newest system.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I'm a little bit worried about Kingdom Hearts 3 tbh. I hope it doesn't fall victim to the 'you should have released this years ago when demand was at an all time high' - disease like FFXV and The Last Guardian. I've noticed a disturbing trend where those types of games fail meet critical and commercial success.

    Also, I read somewhere that they were going to incorporate all of the spin offs and tie ins into the main story which frustrates me a little. The story was already messy as is, I don't want to be scratching my head at the story every 5 minutes because of some crucial plot point I missed not having played some spin off on Gameboy Color in 2008.
