General Discussion / Happy New Year!
« on: January 01, 2021, 12:17:57 PM »
Happy New Year from Chickendinnergaming! 

Here's to a great 2021!  2020 was an odd year and seemed to go extraordinarily fast.  However, here's to hoping 2021 plays out a little different (on the positive side) than 2020  ;D

Happy Thanksgiving!   I hope you have a wonderful Holiday.

News / Leaks / Rumors / Judge Rules on Loot Boxes
« on: November 05, 2020, 07:10:27 PM »
I know there have been loot box controversies in the past... are they gambling?  Are they not?   I first started noticing it with Counter Strike:  Global Offensive.  Man... some people put a lot of money into the keys to open the cases. And Steam also took a hefty fee once you tried to sell those said items if you were lucky enough to get a valuable one.  At one point, I had found a $69-89 AK... Which is all worthless now I believe.  There were pending legal issues on this game ij certain countries if I remember right.

I noticed this article:

Holy crap that's a hefty fine. Other games ran into some of the same issues ... but I can see where the issues come in.  In a way it is gambling... Which the odds on some of those items are horrible.  Interesting FIFA has loot boxes.

General Discussion / Call of Duty: Cold War - Who has been playing Beta?
« on: October 21, 2020, 08:34:04 PM »
Who has been trying the Call of Duty: Cold War Beta?   I've had several chances... but I finding myself trying to squeeze as much out of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare before Cold War comes out and people stop playing Modern Warfare.

Modern Warfare still has a lot of life in it... I really wish the postponed Cold War for at least a few more months.

Is anyone playing Ghost of Tsushima: Legends on the PlayStation 4?  I'm curious on your experience of the game and what you think of it.

Here is a decent summary:
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends -

I think I saw @trkorecky ... and at least one other person as well.  This title has definitely peaked my interest. Is it worth the money?

In the topic Nintendo Direct - Super Mario Bros 35th - it didn't disappoint, we talked about many of the cool announcements in the Nintendo Direct.  Now that Super Mario Bros 35 has been launched.... who has been playing?  What are your thoughts.

I have so far at least achieved a 1st place once...  and many second place finishes.  It is definitely a challenge playing against all those other opponents and getting their enemies throw over into my level (and vice-versa).   IE if you get a star... and have a bunch of enemies thrown on your level... you can plow right through them all.  If you have many people attacking you... they will get all those enemies back (all those targeting you at the same time).  It's a lot of fun.

What are your experiences?

@MegaDrive20XX - Happy birthday!   I hope it's a wonderful birthday.  If you get the gift of gaming... post your loot!

And enjoy yoir digital cake!

At least it appears so lol... check out this Verge article

It looks like a bunch of soon-to-be-disappointed people accidentally bought Xbox One X’s -

Lol... that sucks... unless people are just jumping on Xbox One X systems... but....

I saw Pikmin 3 Deluxe is releasing October 30, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch.  I have been a big fan of Pikmin in the past... and own several versions of the game.    Is anyone else looking forward to the"release?"  I know this is a re-release from the Wii U version... but there are new side missions and you are able to run through the story mode and DLC with a a friend!

Your pre-orders through the above link (and other purchases on Amazon) do help the site..etc.  Thank you for your help in advance.

General Discussion / Cool Legend of Zelda History Book
« on: September 23, 2020, 12:44:17 PM »
Did you all see these?  Maybe some of you own them.  I'm talking about The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia.    The collectors edition is pretty cool...

The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia Deluxe Edition -

It is pricey ($50)... but resembles a NES cart.   I thought it was rather cool.  The standard edition is pretty cool as well and more affordable (around $21):

News / Leaks / Rumors / Call of Duty Cold War - No Steel Book Version
« on: September 21, 2020, 03:01:21 PM »
I figured there would be special editions and pre-orders launched after the big reveal.   So far, there is no special editions or Steel book editions being launched.  Normally I would pick up the Steel book edition and have done so for the most part when available... and when I didn't slack on the pre-order process.  I will say, there are a few that I do not have the Steel Book version. 

The Edition Pre-orders are detailed here:

It appears there will be no editions with additional COD swag... AND... it appears they are trying to get more people to order digital as they are providing some extras for buying those.

There has been a lot of speculation on the size of the PlayStation 5 based on the size of the USB ports...etc.  Here's a pretty good article showing the massive size of age PlayStation 5... and looks like the best configuration is standing up.

First PS5 photos show just how big Sony’s next-gen console truly is -

PC Rigs, Builds, and Peripheral Devices / RTX3080 Already Sold Out?
« on: September 18, 2020, 09:01:59 AM »
It looks like the RTX3080 is hard to acquire right now. I'm glad I won't be in the market for new hardware for a year or two.  But it reminds me of a few other points in history of trying to acquire certain computer hardware pieces.

Nvidia’s RTX 3080 is already sold out pretty much everywhere online in the US -

Did you already get yours?   ;D

Thoughts,  comments... post it up!

Lol... From Linus Tech Tips.  Can it run Crysis Remastered???  This one is for you @CreepinDeth @trkorecky

Funny thing is... @Grindspine and I were playing Crysis 2 on PlayStation 3... and immediately received the achievement. For starting up the game and finishing the 1st sequence.  The trophy was titled - "Can it Run Crysis?". It wa ls pretty funny.

It looks like there may be some production issues and the output number for the PlayStation 5 have been reduced.   This will make the PlayStation 5 more rare this year...

Check out the following article:

Sony slashed PlayStation 5 outlook due to chip issues - CNBC -

This makes me want to pick one up lol... but I have elected to wait due to economic uncertainties right now.  There are more important things to take care of at this point.

I'm not too surprised...  it seems this happens almost every launch.  But it still means shortages if you want it before the end of the year!

 Thoughts, comments?  Post it up!

I will say... that is impressive.  Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will launch today annndd have 150 games from the xCloud platform.  While impressive, there are some "meh" game titles. Check out the list here:

Xbox Game Pass -

Here is a decent Verge article talking about some of the details and Apple negotiations.

Microsoft will have more than 150 xCloud games when it launches tomorrow -

Call of Duty / Infinity Ward Disables All Warzone Vehicles
« on: September 14, 2020, 02:40:32 PM »
A little to this one - Due to a game breaking bug, Infinity Ward has disabled all vehicles in Warzone.   Better.... Get... running before the gas gets you  ;D. Or... at least plan ahead.  @targetrasp and I seem to lose sight of the gas here and there. But we have become pretty good about running away from it without vehicles.

General Discussion / Poll: Xbox Series X OR PlayStation 5?
« on: September 14, 2020, 10:35:58 AM »
Are you looking into the newest generation of Consoles?  Are you buying the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, not at all, or BOTH?!

Vote it up!  You are able to switch your vote if you change your mind  ;D

Who here used to Play Bubsy the Bobcat?   Seems like forever ago... but it was a fun game.  It looks like they have brought it back... I meant to post this topic last year as a pre-order topic.  The game has already launched... and it had caught my eye.

Nintendo - Switch, 3DS, and Wii-U / Nintendo Switch Shortages
« on: September 06, 2020, 05:09:55 PM »
Did anyone notice that it has been hard to find Nintendo Switches at Amazon, Best Buy, and many other stores?   There were a few articles stating there are shortages right now...   Now it looks like Best Buy has Switch lites in stock... but Amazon doesn't seem to have any 1st party (sold by Amazon) switches in stock in the lite or regular Nintendo Switch.

Have you noticed the same?  I don't even see any special editions being released anytime in the near future either

In the Nintendo Direct topic... we discussed Mario Kart Circuit:

There are many applications for this.  Personally, I'd really like to see the cars be the size the old Penny racers.    About 6 years ago... we were playing with remote controlled cars (rechargeable batteries) about the size of 3-4 quarters tall and about the size of a quarter big.    If we had cameras on them and they were the size and speed of the old penny racers, that would be a blast.

What do you think?   

Gaming / Movie / Media Deals / Psyvariar Delta - Nintendo Switch on Amazon
« on: September 06, 2020, 02:06:50 PM »
I bought one of these as I wanted the Shmup awhile back.  I created a topic on it here:

I found it on Amazon for sub $20 shipped (+ tax)... and this is a pretty good price for Psyvariar Delta:
Psyvariar Delta - Nintendo Switch -

The site gets credit for the sales...  @targetrasp @retro junkie @CreepinDeth @AngelBob and @JR_McG ... you might be interested in this.  Just a heads up.

If you purchase, post up your thoughts on the game when you get it!   Mine should be coming soon.  The PlayStation 4 version is no longer available it seems.

I made other topics on Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours on Steam - However, I've always wanted to buy it on the PlayStation Vita.

I figured it would be discounted... and it's still $39.99.  That's a tad frustrating.  Does any one else own this?  I hate paying that much for a digital game... but maybe I'll bite the bullet sometime soon.  I really wanted this game on a handheld console.  It appears there are only a couple physical copies left that I can find.. new.... but those are $75... grrrr.  :o

« on: September 05, 2020, 12:49:10 PM »
I'm not sure how many are playing Apex Legends right now.  This is a bit older now...


@Jack Are you still playing?  I thought Maybe @Kinikko was at point as well.   If you're playing...  drop a comment about your likes and dislikes.

News / Leaks / Rumors / Next Gen Console Pricing
« on: September 05, 2020, 11:15:17 AM »
This is more of a speculative article ... not sure how much in the way of truth there is ... but check it out!

Next-gen console prices and release dates allegedly leaked with Microsoft's Xbox Series X and S taking very strong positions against the PlayStation 5 consoles -

I figured the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X would hit $500 this round.  I was preparing for that...

General Discussion / Call Of Duty - Cold War
« on: September 05, 2020, 11:06:08 AM »
Call of Duty - Cold War is coming out this year.  I was really hoping it woukd be delayed like Halo but it is not being delayed.

Is anyone pumped for the new Call of Duty?   I really don't want the current version to be done yet as it feels there is a bunch if life left. 

@mastermario - doubt there will be a new level released with Cold War coming out.
