I've got 400 down and 35 up and i'll bet my left one it'll still lag... They're never fully prepared for the network traffic, they'll throttle their users (Like when I try to download from Steam) and if this thing catches fire that infuriating Net Neutrality discussion will flare up like a bad case of the herp...

There were MANY good games.  I bought into the Gamecube pretty heavy.

@BLUEVOODU I remember during the EGA days you had fanboyish tendencies! I'm also fairly certain I picked up the phrase "wavebird frisbees" from you

@retro junkie I really think the GCN being released over a year later AND not supporting DVD was why I completely slept through it. It also happen to hit when I was in college, it was difficult enough to afford one game system and beer. After I got out I picked one up, but was way too late.

I was late to the party where the cube was concerned. I had a few games, messed with the ds as a controller stuff, but only really played Mario kart and Mario party with it. I've heard about all the cool games much later and haven't done any catch-up. I was the only Nintendo generation that I practically skipped over.

If gaming goes saas I'll quit.

After running through the campaign I put it down for a bit. I'll be looking to play multiplayer pretty soon

10 is always one of those I've meant to play, I just never found time to. You've definitely given it a higher place in my queue now.

The game is great. The AC130 mission is an absolute blast!

I've got to take the kids to different places and pick them up at different times but I should be able to play early evening or late tonight as well as all of Sunday.

It looks like Sega is flirting with a bigger involvement in hardware. Maybe there's some weight to the Sega / Google / Ubisoft confab on a new console... Here's hoping

was that the game that messed with the player mind? I remember hearing one that'd tell you the controller was unplugged or acted like the cube turned off, or something?

This weekend looks like a good opportunity

12
I've not had an opportunity to play online yet, this weekend looks promising though

@retro junkie sounds like fun

I just run through CODMW Remastered on PS4 and am trying to convince myself to play though it at a slower pace to pick up the rest of the intel pieces. I'm also looking at Red Dead 2 since it just dropped to $39 at gamestop and bestbuy, Star Tropics (free on Nintendo Online) or some Zelda I've not beat yet.

14
One of the stand-out Call of Duty games is on PSN for free for the month. This might CGD multiplayer worthy

I found a complete copy of GTA 4 for the ps3 at a thrift store for 2 bucks and impulse bought Kingdom Hearts - The Story so Far - after hearing a coworker rave about the newest Kingdom Hearts game. Still waiting for the game back log tracker @BLUEVOODU

@targetrasp TAKE IT BACK!  TAAKE BACK what you said about Titanfall.   ;D  Cuts deep bro.


@BLUEVOODU this freakin' guy!  ::)

I really wanted to love it (talking about Titian Fall 2) but I couldn't. I don't know if it snored, slept on the wrong side of the bed, kept the heat up too high, or just put the toilet paper on upside down but something about her just bugged me. Don't get me wrong, we're friends, we still hang out but just for a few minutes of fun when I don't have anything else to do..

From what I've heard you get a mission, fly to said mission, complete said mission, go back to Tarsis, rinse lather repeat. The going back to town after each mission, not being able to change loadouts on the fly, and sameish looking enemies, and the meh loot, makes the experience too much of a grind.

I've also heard the story is lukewarm at best and there's no real sense of progression. People have complained about the pacing of the story and how the awkward interactions between characters often seem forced and unemotional.

The absolute worst thing I've heard about the game is that it's just a little better than Destiny 2.

I have heard that small improvements have been made but I can't jump in yet. A great story (or great loot) can make up for an excessive grind or satisfying gameplay can make up for a tepid story (Call of Duty, Borderlands). I think Anthem would fall in the latter scenario IF the grind or loot progression got addressed.

My fear is that if I pick it up now it'll fall in with games like Titanfall, Destiny, Halo 5, etc. that I was really excited for but found them just to be ok. Each may have been played a couple hours and sit on the shelf. I'll grab those kinds of games up during the $10 black Friday or amazon sales.

I was excited for it but the reviewers weren't very kind and that gave me pause... Flying around like Iron Man looks really cool but I just couldn't get past all that lukewarm reviews.

If people here start raving about it I'm sure I'll pick it up

IF you love starfox this game will likely do it for you. Without the add-ons and expensive gimmicks it's a good star fox game.

When I started working on the ps2 I did something similar. I was really overconfident and did get one or two torn down so far I couldn't put it back together. The laser assembly and the disc drive in general were intricate and without pictures I wound up using my first one or two for parts. There were so many different models of the fat ps2 so certain parts wouldn't fit every iteration, it wound up helping to have a few ps2s worth in the parts bin.

The worst was that stupid spring on the gamecube lid. I had the spring go flying when I was tearing down a gc to clean and it took hours worth of googling to figure out how that thing went. None of the tear downs at the time had pics of the spring.

yeah, after a couple they became less and less memorable though, maybe too much of the same.

This one (as well as Ant-man and the Wasp) is available on Netflix for anyone who has yet to see it.

It's a great movie and being on Netflix means I don't have to take the shrink-wrap off my Steelbook to rewatch it.
