Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from CDG!  Have a wonderful day and holiday weekend

I bought Castle of Shikigami 3 for the Nintendo Wii many years back. I thought it was interesting they're releasing Castle of Shikigami 2 for the Nintendo Switch. 

This was a fun Shmup ... though not my favorite shoot 'em up.  Right now it is full price and is slated to be released April  of 2024.

General Discussion / The Marvels
November 19, 2023, 05:49:44 PM
The Marvels is now in theaters.  I'm curious if the movie contains resolutions to some of the scenarios in Secret Invasion.  Unfortunately, I will not have time to view this movie until Thanksgiving weekend.  I'm pumped to see this movie. There seems to be some negativity surrounding it from other reviews. I stopped reading reviewing.

Who else is excited?   Who else has viewed the movie?  Comments, Thoughts... post it up!
General Discussion / Werewolf by Night in color
November 07, 2023, 09:09:30 AM
We all remember the original topic:  WEREWOLF by Night created by @retro junkie

Now we have Werewolf by Night in color... which is pretty much the same thing in color.  However, I didn't look at them side-by-side (or within a close-enough) time frame to see if there are ANY differences.   I didn't look it up either.  This was a fun dive back into a fun movie from 2022... and I enjoyed the view.

Has anyone else watched this?  Are you planning to?

This isn't necessarily new news.  I wanted to add this topic for awhile now.  The Sony Q is a planned handheld that is not like the Vita or anything else.  It appears to simply be a Sony player like the functionality of the Vita where it allowed remote playing of games from the console on the same network. 

I like the concept, but I'd like to have this functionality in a new Vita style device.  I'm not sure how much of a market there is for this device. What are your thoughts?

I guess I always long for a new Vita.. but that could be my "preference" that maybe stems from happy memories. I can't say that's the case... but that may be the case.

Here's more information from theverge:

Happy hunting.
Thanks you @retro junkie and @targetrasp ... I'm stuck on a SHMUP kick. This time it's RayStorm X RayCrisis HD Collection for the Nintendo Switch.  I've not had a chance to enjoy these titles.  If I remember right, RayStorm came through the shop as a PlayStation 1 game.

RayStorm X RayCrisis HD Collection -- Nintendo Switch

This package contains 2 games - RayStorm and RayCrisis.

Have you played this game?  Are you interested in this game? What are your thoughts?

On a shooter kick for the Switch!   I figure @retro junkie and @targetrasp are all ears lol.  This time it's SHMUP Collection for the Nintendo Switch. 

SHMUP Collection - Nintendo Switch

It appears there are 3 games in 1 ... each of a different SHMUP variety.  I'm intrigued and interested.  Has anyone else checked this out or played it?

Day-Z... this was the game to play pre-PUBG if you were looking for Battle-Royale style games.  However, it was bogged down with bugs and tons of development issues.  At one point, they fully removed the zombies from the game until certain bugs were fixed.   The game was finally released a couple years (maybe few) back that was playable. 

I'm revisiting Day-z  and it's been fun.  I have yet to see another player... but the zombie, survival and fighting mechanisms seem to be working ok.  Maybe I don't see people because I tend to starve to death or die by Zombie attacks.  For some reason, it still is fun.  Maybe it won't be after a few more months.

Moving on to the Steam Deck...  I really want to get Day-z working well on the Deck.  It is not officially supported, but the community layout works OK.  One of the issues... I cannot figure out how to throw a grenade.  LOL  :-[   I found smoke grenade, pulled it... and, thankfully it was not an explosive grenade because I couldn't throw it.

Have you played this game recently?  Thought about playing it?

 Has anyone saw the Limited Run Games Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge Anniversary Edition for the Nintendo Switch?

I found Angry Birds Star Wars new for the PSVita for around $10.00 .. I ended up buying it.  I played this game for the PS4... but thought it would be fun to have it for the PSVita.

Does anyone else have it?  I doubt many people still play the PSVita anymore.  I know @retro junkie has his... but not sure who else here still has their Vita.

It's been awhile.. but finally breaking out Animal Crossing New Leaf again.  I have about 3 fossils left to collect... and working on completing a few things.

I know most people have moved on to the Switch version, but is anyone still playing this game?

We just got out of the theatre for Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part 1... the movie is great. I don't know if anyone has plans to see this... but I highly recommend. 

The movie start to finish sans a couple parts is 100% solid. 

Anyone looking forward to this movie?  Thoughts, comments... Post it up
For those who are fans of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, this marks the 2nd film of the animated series.   Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is follows along with the same animation style.

We ended up seeing it in theatres last weekend.  It was still the cool animation style.  There were a number of unexpected twists... we cannot wait for the 3rd installment of the series.  IT's hard to say whether the 1st or 2nd movie was better. So far, both have been well done.

Who saw this movie? or are you looking forward to the movie?  post it up!

General Discussion / Secret Invasion - Disney+
June 21, 2023, 10:22:28 PM
I've been waiting for Secret Invasion for a long time.  If I remember right, it was delayed at least once as well. It just came out!

So far, this show is off to an interesting start.  I think they did pretty well and the list of actors is awesome.  I'm glad to see Nick Fury back at it (this is obviously not a spoiler). I won't go too far for now to avoid spoilers.

Who's pumped for Secret Invasion?   Have you been looking forward to it starting?  Post it up!
Well... I finally get around to playing G Darius last weekend.  It truly is a bizarre title.  Even in the HD remaster setting, G Darius is still a bit rough on the eyes.  But... if you go back to the original, you REALLLLY see how rough it was.

I originally mentioned the game in this discount game thread: G Darius - PS4

The Fish based bosses are pretty crazy.  I guess I missed this game as I don't recognize it at all.  It looks like it was originally released on the Playstation.  Did any play this on the Playstation in it's original iteration?

I played Andro Dunos on the Neo Geo.  I just ran across this on Amazon:

Just a heads up, the host is having issues with their upstream network provider. You may run into issues using and viewing the site.

Hopefully they'll be mitigated soon.
Dead Man's Draw is not a new title... but I have played it for years now.

It's a simple pirate themed card game that changes based on traits equipped by the computer opponent and yourself.  It has pretty good action sounds and addictive music.   It's not a super complicated card game.  I've enjoyed playing it quite a bit over the years.

Have any of you played Dead Man's Draw?

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3... and wow... what a movie.  It hits the emotions hard, but is also a great showing for Guardians.  It also appears to be the last one.  IMO they left it open for more if they wanted to do it.  I thought the movie was great... really liked it, though there are many scenes that are hard to watch.

Before commenting more... who saw the movie?  what are your thoughts?

Dariusburst: Another Chronicle Ex+ - PlayStation 4 -

On sale. 11% off... not a ton, but it's a shooter I have on my list.
My Steam Deck sat uncharged for a few weeks.  I charged it and turned it back on.  I know this worked a few weeks ago.

Once my Steam Deck finished charged, I turned it on. The screen was of normal resolution.  Oddly enough, I started using it, and the screen zoomed out as if it was a much larger resolution where everything on-screen was very small. 

I then tried to message someone, and the on-screen keyboard didn't come up until I close chat. However, I cannot message anyone. No matter what I do, the chat screen comes up, but the on-screen keyboard doesn't show up and I can't get it to show up.

I've ensured all updates were performed, restarted the Deck, shut it down... etc. no dice.

Has anyone else run into this?  It's quite frustrating. 

General Discussion / Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
February 26, 2023, 08:36:04 AM
I was pumped when they announced Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.  It's now out, we saw it, and it was spectacular.

In my opinion, the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was a heavy hitter and one of Marvel's strongest movies in awhile.  Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was a strong showing, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was well done, Spider-Man: No Way Home was massive, and let's not forget several of the Disney+ Series as well as other strong titles such as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

It's hard for me to say it's better than all the others, so I will refrain from that.  However, it's an amazing movie.    No Spoilers on this round as well  ;D

Who has seen this movie?  what are your thoughts?  Post it up!

I missed this in December 2022... and then the subsequent returns Google provided in January 2023.   It looks like Google Stadia is dead.

DO you think this a Cloud Gaming trend?  more to come?  Or is this Just Google bowing out of a market segment?

General Discussion / Calendar Missing Events
January 22, 2023, 04:32:33 PM
Not sure why, but after the upgrade, only @Helskyth 's birthday exists.  Looks like everyone else's are gone... or are not displayed... OR something else happened in the upgrade.   I still this set on many profiles... but calendar wise, I'm not seeing them (if you did want them displayed).  Checking into if there's a new permission (Etc).

Just a heads up, as that will impact emails and topics - IF YOU WANTED that information displayed.  If you wanted it hidden,  no problem as well.

It looks like we didn't have a Bad Batch season 1 topic... however, Season 2 has started.  I couldn't wait for this to start again. Season 1 of the Bad Batch was awesome.  Bad Batch Season 2 has been awesome so far.  Great Story... great animation... and the characters and stories are awesome.

General Discussion / Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
December 31, 2022, 12:45:08 PM
We saw Black Panther: Wakanda Forever last night... almost forgot it was in theaters with the busy schedule we had over the last 2 months.  The trailers DID NOT do this movie justice.  It did not look like it was going to be good.. however, that's FAR from reality for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

This movie started off with an AWESOME tribute to Chadwick Boseman.  Truly spectacular.  The movie was great, action and flow were better than the original Black Panther IMO... but without Chadwick Boseman... which was hard to see Black Panther without him.

Has anyone else checked this movie out? Comments, Thoughts... Post it up!
Forum upgrades are now finished.  There are some new features... and a little bit of an upgraded look.

Please let me know your thoughts. There are likes on posts now... as well as posting images in the forum with drag and drop under "attachments and other options." 

So far, the dark theme had to be removed... and I'm still fixing some of the images.  If you see missing images or anything else, please let me know as well.  This was a disruptive upgrade.  More features will be coming soon.

We happened to stumble onto this show on Disney+.  It's about a band of special kids solving a problem in somewhat of an intellectual way.  In Season 1, they have to face an "emergency."  It is interesting as there are tie-ins with how the world seems to be during the pandemic and even "post" pandemic (not in pandemic / disease topics).

While it is a younger show, we thought it was well written and acted.   Has anyone else checked this out?
