General Discussion / Happy Birthday Megadrive!
« on: October 12, 2019, 12:53:10 PM »
Happy birthday @MegaDrive20XX !!   Sorry a tad late.

If you received gaming gifts... post up your loot!  I hope all is well, friend.

In Animal Crossing New Leaf on the 3DS, there was this blue gray frog looking shadow that would surface as times swimming in one of my rivers.   I couldn't get it to bite while fishing.     The below describes how to catch this thing... This was a bit tough and requires patience.

It is actually a Diving Beetle.  You need to catch it with your net.  The Shadow will swim / float / glide along the water.  It will surface here and there.  You need to try to catch the Diving Beetle when it surfaces RIGHT NEXT to the shore.    It's a pain to catch, but you will need it if you want to complete your insect library.   It is found in the rivers and ponds from what I've read.  I've not seen it in a pond yet... only river.

Happy catching!  Feel free to post questions, comments, and if you caught the Diving Beetle.

I thought this was pretty cool.  It's not the most favorite game out there of mine, but I know a lot of members were playing: @SpartanEvolved @Mai Valentine @mastermario and others.  I cannot remember if @Strubes did or not.

Anyway, Overwatch Legendary Edition is coming out for the Nintendo Switch:
Overwatch Legendary Edition - Nintendo Switch - Amazon.com

It will be released October 15, 2019.

Who will be picking this game up?  Who's looking forward to the Switch version?   Post it up!

Is anyone looking to pre-order Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One?   I have mine purchased from Gamestop instead of Amazon due to the Steel book version.

IF you pre-pre-ordered, you were able to get into Beta Access.   Check that topic out here:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta

If you are interested, you can pre-order through the following link:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - PlayStation 4 - Amazon.com

I will miss the Blackout mode... but it will be cool getting back to a Modern Warfare style game.    Are you buying?  @targetrasp … we still have other COD Multiplayers to catch up on... and achievements to do lol.

Post it up!

I pre-ordered the new Call of Duty (Modern Warfare) for the PlayStation 4... I was able to get in the beta.

It's pretty fun... I Will miss the Blackout mode.  I really dug it … even though @targetrasp and I never managed to team up lol.  We need to still do the CAll of Duty Co-Op thing we talked about.

Anyway.. The game really feels like most other Call of Duty Games in the Modern Warfare lineup.  The levels look pretty good.   It ALSO looks like they are trying to do Cross Play.  There are Cross Play features in the main menus... where I think this game is going to work Cross Platform... a lot like Fort Nite.  This is the most exciting feature...  It's about time more games do this!

Is anyone else looking to get into this once it launches?  @targetrasp @Strubes @Jack @HylianSeven @Mai Valentine @Aya-Kun - Maybe you all?  I don't see anyone else with the BETA on my PS4 Friends list.

I was a little intrigued by the Nintendo Switch Lite... it looks like they are trying to replace the 3DS with it.    IS that true or the case?  I don't know.  It used to be Nintendo had "pillars" of products.  Now... I wonder if they see the future of Gaming as more portable handle like the Switch.  It's a great idea and it has MANY  use cases for portable multiplayer gaming.

The price point of $200 is nice... better than a Nintendo Switch, but You cannot remove the controllers.  Does this matter to you?

Here are the Amazon.com offerings:
Nintendo Switch Lite - Turquoise - Amazon.com

Nintendo Switch Lite - Yellow - Amazon.com

Nintendo Switch Lite - Gray - Amazon.com


I really dig the yellow color.  I'm curious how it translates color wise in person. 

Which colors do you like the best?  Are you interested in the Switch Lite?  If so, why?  Post it up!

Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening is coming out for the Nintendo Switch.  This is pretty cool... It's a redone Zelda Game Boy.  Corrected my statement... I have the least amount of time on this Zelda.... outside the CD-i Zelda games lol.

Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening - Nintendo Switch - Amazon.com

About the product:
• As Link, explore a reimagined Koholint Island and collect instruments to awaken the Wind Fish to find a way home
• Explore numerous dungeons, riddled with tricks, traps, and enemies, including some from the Super Mario series

• Listen to a reawakened soundtrack that helps bring life to Koholint Island
• Earn Chambers (Dungeon Rooms) and arrange them to complete objectives in the all new Chamber Dungeon

Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening releases on the Switch September 20, 2019.

How many of you are looking into buying this?  I'm highly thinking of picking it up?   Pre-order link is linked above for ease if you wish to pre-order.

Looks like more Studio Drama:

Sony Addresses Drama With Disney Over Spider-Man Rights and Departure from Marvel Cinematic Universe - msn.com ET

I figured this would happen again and there would be another rift.  It was amazing some of these studios were coming and working together as long as they did.  Looks like that may be coming to an end.

The claims of both studios are interesting... I wonder what it is... time, money, or both?  Here's to hope they can work it out and re-unite.  I think everyone wins... and hopefully both companies can do it for the better of the story lines and movies.

There are 4 new PlayStation controllers coming out :

Electric Purple, Red Camouflage, Titanium Blue, and Rose Gold DS4.  There is also a Gold Headset coming out.

Linky:  https://blog.us.playstation.com/2019/08/15/four-new-dualshock-4-wireless-controller-colors-new-gold-headset-design-coming-this-fall/

I'm a sucker for extra controllers ... I'm generally replacing my main every 2 years as well.  Anyone else looking at these?  What are you favorite colors so far.

This is a pretty cool article. It's about time on chip / board graphics are getting a boost. As the article states... the performance has been nearly flat for years.. And now, they've come out with about double the performance. Is about time.

Now.. I'd like to see what you could do gaming wise with this.  It makes sense though.

Here's the article:
Intel's Gen 11 graphics has improved so much, we may have to stop making jokes about it - PCWorld.com

What are your thoughts?   Post it up!

Lol ... so I guess it's fair to say... don't  piss off Zelda fans.

Kotaku has a pretty interesting article:
Zelda Fans Protest, Smash PS4 Over Very Similar Chinese Game - Kotaku.com

It appears there's  a game in China that will be released called  Genshin Impact ... it has very striking similarities to Zelda Breath of the Wild.  Boy... did Zelda fans have a negative reaction.   

Check out the article. Comments, thoughts?  Post it up!

PC Rigs, Builds, and Peripheral Devices / The Linux Log Topic
« on: August 09, 2019, 05:26:02 PM »
SOOO.... where do you go for your logs when there is an issue?

IT's big, it's heavy... it's wood.  IT's log... lol  ;D

I found a pretty good article on Linux Logs.   I've been working to learn this better and in more depth.  I accomplished my 1st 2 Linux certs... but they do not teach you everything.  They are good for forcing learning, but you really need to re-enforce that learning with more practice and experience.  Keep digging and keep hitting your head against the proverbial wall.

This is the article I dug.  I know there are MANY different Linux and Unix flavors and variants… but we have to start some where... and This is where we are starting:

20 Linux Log Files that are Located under /var/log Directory - thegeekstuff.com

Now... you may know the most logs are located under /var/log/… great...  but keep in mind, some businesses / admins change those up.    More on this later.

Thoughts? Comments?  questions?   Post it up!  Continue the Linux Discussion.

I'm a bit excited about both games!

Sniper Elite 4 and Wipeout Omega Collection.  ESPECIALLY excited about Sniper Elite 4... I love the Sniper Elite series.

Who else is downloading these?

However, what did you end up adding to your Steam Library?  Post it up!

Retro Gaming and Hardware / Turbo Grafx-16 Mini Pre-Order
« on: July 14, 2019, 10:01:16 PM »
I will use this topic for the pre-order.  You can also use the Prime Day link in General in the Prime Day topic.

As of right now, I don't see the Pre-Order Link / product page for the Turbo Grafx-16 Mini.  There are Hori Controllers and other products out there.


Turbo Grafx-16 Mini Pre-Order items:



Release Date: March 19, 2020

I'm definitely pre-ordering tomorrow... I've dug many games on the Turbo Grafx and Duo.  It would be cool if they offered a Duo version in the future.

I'm pretty excited for this title.  It appears to be a re-imagined Link's Awakening.   I never did play much of the NES version... and I'm wondering if they're going to expand on it... or stick to the original story line.  I haven't reviewed a TON of the information out there yet.

It comes out September 20, 2019.

  • As Link, explore a reimagined Koholint Island and collect instruments to awaken the Wind Fish to find a way home
  • Explore numerous dungeons, riddled with tricks, traps, and enemies, including some from the Super Mario series
  • Meet and interact with unique locals to get help on your adventure
  • Listen to a reawakened soundtrack that helps bring life to Koholint Island
  • Earn Chambers (Dungeon Rooms) and arrange them to complete objectives in the all-new Chamber Dungeon.


Link to Amazon.com product:
Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening - Nintendo Switch - Amazon.com

There's a cool Special Edition with a sweet art book... but It doesn't appear to be available at this time and not sure when it will be available for pre-order.  Hopefully it's not already sold out.  I'm a sucker for some of this stuff in the Zelda Realm. I
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening: Dreamer Edition - Nintendo Switch - Amazon.com

I think this will be a cool title... I have nearly all main release Zelda games (not CD-I titles)… and Breath of the Wild yet.  I might need to pick that up as well.

This version of iPad isn't as sleek as the Pro iPad... but those looking to get a good iPad for decent price, Amazon is having a sale on Apple iPads.  I noticed this in investment financial news... and this is an abnormal sale.  Normally Apple products don't go on sale.. and I haven't seen the sale at other stores. To be fair.. I'm not sure how Amazon is doing this and or Apple is allowing it. The financial investment site noted it was a bit bizarre too.

With that... if your kids need one for School, if you just want one... or are giving a gift.. this specific 128 GB iPad is $329... which is about $100 off.  The iPad pros are on sale as well if that floats your boat.   I highly recommend this version on a budget.  128GB is still plenty of storage for most everything you need to do... unless you are storing tons of videos or making tons of your own stop animation.  At that point, you would store those off site.   Either way, this is a solid piece... if you are looking for the functionality of an iPad.

yeah... still on my Wii U kick.  On one of @retro junkie 's threads, I posted the link to Amazon.com for Star Fox Zero + Star Fox Guard - Nintendo Wii U.  The price has dropped under $11 now... and I figure this price won't last a super long time.  I could be wrong.   This isn't my favorite Star Fox.  I still really like the flying only Star Fox games... but I give them credit for trying this out.

It's actually pretty fun.  Reviews don't give it justice and there seems to be a lot of hate for this game.  Whether you're a collector or gamer, you should think about getting this game brand new Sub $11... for the standard edition (not Player's Choice).  It includes Star Fox Guard that is something like Tower Defense... but I don't have a lot of play time in Guard.

If you have played this game... post up your experience with it.

I picked this up already.  The Mario Tennis games have always been fun in my opinion.  Has anyone else played the Wii U version?

I couldn't believe when I saw this game at $14 on Amazon while searching for other games... I figured I'd post this here as a topic of discussion and to let people know.  In the past, it was hard to find Mario Tennis for reduced pricing... and it's not the Player's Choice version.

Thoughts, comments.. post it up!  If you do pick this game up, let us know!

I remember @Grindspine saying how good this game is.   I originally was going to purchase it on steam... you can find it a tad cheaper there.  Obviously, it's not a physical copy though.   I'm looking at picking up a copy of Giana Sisters Twisted Dream Directors Cut - Wii U at the $10ish price new... and I found a couple on amazon.com.  Why?  I'd like the physical copy.

How well does this stack up to the PC version?  Pretty much play and look the same?  Everything I see in the reviews seems to point this is a good version to own.

Here is the product link on Amazon.com:
Giana Sisters Twisted Dream Directors Cut - Wii U - Amazon.com

Just an fyi to anyone else looking for cheap Wii U games.  This might be up your ally.  If you've played it, post up your opinions!

Man... On a Wii U kick tonight browsing Amazon.  Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge - Nintendo Wii U right now is $7ish for a new copy.    I'm very tempted to pick this up and store it back for awhile or break it out later this summer.

The reviews look OK... not super stellar... but it looks like there is decent play value.

Here's a link to the product on Amazon.com:
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge - Nintendo Wii U - Amazon.com

So this looks pretty cool... definitely a good price.  I think I'm going to pick up a copy to try it out... hard to go wrong with a Ninja Gaiden title for $7ish new.

I've played a couple of the Darksiders games... but I've stuck mostly to the editions on Steam.  I believe I have Darksiders 1 and 2... and was starting to do achievements on Darksiders 2 a couple years back.   They seemed to be a fun hack and slash... I just became too busy to finish.

Has anyone played Darksiders: Warmastered Edition on the Wii U?  Is it pretty good on the Wii U format?  The reviews I saw stated this was a really good title for one of the last Wii U titles.

@retro junkie or @targetrasp  might be interested in this... it's definitely nice priced at Amazon.. like $10.99-ish brand new.  I like to pick up new games at that price.

If interested, the link is:
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition (Wii U) - Wii U - Amazon.com

I'm tempted to pick this up at the current price.  I'm not sure if it's a temporary sale or what.  Just a heads up to you gamers and game collectors.

This will be a 2 day event.   If you shop with Amazon, please consider using our ads on the site.  You can click in the ads and navigate to whatever you want to buy.  The funds go to hosting and upgrade costs (mostly hosting right now).  I appreciate the help!

Who is looking forward to prime day?  There were a few good deals last year.  The event appears to be growing.  The 1st year didn't seem to have a lot of what I was looking for... but we will see what's up this year!

The theme is not fully customized yet... so not everything is 100%.  However, you can select the sunrise theme.  This allow you to either select dark or light per your preference.  You will need to set this in your profile.  The new theme will have Steam and Discord links at the bottom of the forum.  Once customized, I will have them displayed in different areas. 

The default theme will continue to be Wide (vVide) for the time being.

Please let me know if there are any issues.

If you haven't been around or posted in awhile, please drop by... say hi and stay awhile.   We would like to hear from you.
