General Discussion / Happy Birthday. Grindspine!
« on: July 26, 2020, 11:02:15 PM »
Sucks we can't all get together well this year.  Never-the-less.. Happy Birthday,  @Grindspine  enjoy your digital cake!

If you get the gifts of gaming, don't forget to share!

I thought this article was interesting. It makes sense as well to focus on the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or  new speculative service.  However, I wonder how that will change the price to services offered... or if there will be a decent increase in cost.

Testing creating a thread

I meant to post this a little bit ago.  I was pre-occupied taking another certification...  however, they added Swimming like Animal Crossing: New Leaf to Animal Crossings: New Horizons.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is adding swimming -

I haven't been able to pick up this game yet. It is a 1st for me but hope to pick this up in the near future.

Have you tried swimming yet?   How does it work compared to New Leaf?   Comments / Thoughts?  Post it up!

I have yet to pick up this game.

Happy Forth of July... 2020 sure has been going by fast.    I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday.

Please stop by, say hi, and post up!   


I thought this was a bit crazy.   To me... you cannot exclude a charger without a design change.  Maybe the portless iPhone will be a thing... inductive charging???  I guess that is another topic for another time. But it's a tad crazy to not include one if the phone needs it.   

Check out this article:
Apple might not include a charger with the iPhone 12. Good -

Of anyone can pull this off, Apple could.  But I don't think that's best for the consumer ... at all.  And inductive charging is cool...  but not is not cheap.

Thoughts? Comments?  Post it up.

Whst do I want on my laptop?   Good cooling...  killer graphics card... good amounts of ram and disk.... And a hidden LED display on the laptop lid. 

Check this out:

Thoughts... comments?

Did any of you see this?  I found it interesting and wonder how it wi turn out.

I missed Last of Us 2 came out... Last of Us was one heck of a game. 

The Last Of Us Part 2 Is Getting Predictably User Score Bombed On Metacritic -

I thought this article was interesting.  They make some solid points... though I don't understand why some would do this. I have not had a chance to play the game... and I've lost track over the past few months with everything going on.

I will setup a preorder link for the game... however, any add on the site will take you there. Remember, you can buy anything through the links including groceries and we get credit for it.

For those that are interested... Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Call of Duty WW2 are free right now.

Star Wars Battlefront is 112GB installed it appears.   It would be cool if we could get a few PS4 players on and playing together.  I'm looking at you:

Did any of you see these?   I know there are still some parts of the NeoGeo Mini Left to be desired... however, these are pretty cool limited editions:

SNK NEOGEO Mini Samurai Shodown Limited Edition Bundle: Ukyo Tachibana  -

SNK NEOGEO Mini Samurai Shodown Limited Edition Bundle: Haohmaru  -

Neo Geo Mini Samurai Shodown Limited Edition Bundle-Kuroko Console -

SNK NeoGeo Neogeo Mini Samurai Showdown Limited Edition Bundle-Nakoruru -

My favorite is the Haohmaru version... I don't know why, but I dig it the most.  It's cool they are doing the limited edition minis... they are taking a page out of Nintendo's playbook.

I'm on a PlayStation 5 kick today.  Here's an older interesting article I've been meaning to post for awhile.  This is more in the cloud gaming realm.  There are mentions of Xbox Project xCloud as well.

The PS5 Could Be Sony’s Last Gaming Console, Ever -

Check it out... what are your thoughts?   Obviously this j's somewhat opinionated... and the future has a lot of twists as we have seen.    Post it up!

General Discussion / Star Trek Picard - is it good?
« on: June 07, 2020, 01:50:52 PM »
I haven't had the chance to check this out.  I'm curious on the thoughts of those who have seen it.

According to the Guardian... it's fairly dark.

Check out the article.  Is it fair or unfair... and what new your thoughts?   Post it up!

Had anyone else checked this out yet?   It's a decent explanation of PlayStation 5 hardware and an interesting discussion.  Check it out and post up your thoughts.

Post it up!

I have just 100% completed Lego Jurassic park...  This would be my 3rd Playstation Network platinum trophy.

General Discussion / Happy Birthday Mai!

Happy Birthday @Mai Valentine , I hope your birthday is awesome!  Enjoy your digital cake.

IF you get the gift of gaming, post up your loot!  ;D

Who started the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 3?   This weekend was double xp… I played a ton of rounds.     I also took last week off to get some RR from work and other stuff.... so I put some time into the game.

I Think I'm around Battle Pass rank 60 now.  I'm also working on many of the other challenges.  I've played many rounds of Warzone Solos for practice lol... I was having trouble with it when playing quads with @mastermario @SpartanEvolved and @Grindspine … or whoever else played.  I'm finally getting the hang of it.   I played a ton of Blackout in Black Ops 4... and liked that well.   I guess I was more used to Blackout.   Who else has been playing?

Retro Gaming and Hardware / Atari Flashback Portable - Any good?
« on: May 03, 2020, 11:08:55 AM »
Atari Flashback Portable - Has anyone seen this?  The reviews aren't that great:

Atari Flashback Portable Deluxe built-in 70 Games SD Card slot Especial Edition -

The game selection is ok.. old school games such as Frogger… but I'm curious if anyone has tried it and if the screen...etc.. is good or not. 

Post it up!

What do you think about everything re-opening?    Do you think it's too soon.. not soon enough... and the affects?

I Will say this... there is a line between unemployment and many adverse health effects and deaths that occur when people are out of work.   If people do not get back to work, the issue will compound.  However, if we go back too soon... we risk major re-infections.  Doctors and researchers still aren't sold on immunity once you get it.   My understanding is re-infections have occurred.

Retro Gaming and Hardware / Evercade Pre-Order Link -
« on: May 03, 2020, 09:38:45 AM »
In case you are pre-ordering the Evercade from … here is a pre-order link.  Your pre-orders via this link will help this site:

Evercade Premium Pack Includes 3 Cartridges Collections: Atari Volume 1, Interplay Volume 1 and Dataeast Volume 1 - Electronic Games  -

Even if you go to this link and decide to get other stuff... that will count as well.

IF you do get the Evercade… post up how you like it...etc... once you get it.

Who is excited for this ... and 1st day buyers?  Do you think it will be delayed with the corona virus plaguing us right now?

I'm pretty pumped for it and what it'll have to offer.  I'm not necessarily watching any certain titles right now.   The current generations of hardware still feel like they have a couple years of life in them.  I could be wrong... I get the ps4 is 6 years old.

I'm still pumped.  What's your thoughts on this?  Post it up!

There's an Animal Crossing:  New Leaf fishing tournament today. Is anyone participating?

I know it's the old version on 3DS... but if you're doing the tournament...  post it up!   Also post up your largest fish.  So far, I've caught a 42.75 inch Sea Bass

Call of Duty / Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - Warzone
« on: April 11, 2020, 01:42:17 PM »
Warzone recently came out... and is a decent mode.  I've played it a little bit, but don't know if I like it as much as Black out introduced in Black ops 4.

@mastermario @Grindspine and @SpartanEvolved and I have been playing here and there.  I need to play a bit more.    Quads was just released as well.

Who else plays this?   Are you getting into the new mode?    I still like playing the standard Call of Duty modes better... but these are fun at times.  Post it up!

Cloud Gaming / GeForce Now - Cloud Gaming
« on: April 11, 2020, 01:41:19 PM »
Continuing on with the Cloud Gaming topics...  I'm going to start highlighting some of the services.  In this topic, we are exploring GeForce Now.   I have not signed up for the service and won't be during the beer virus-pocalypse… however, This looks interesting.

Here is a link to the service:  GeForce Now - Cloud Gaming

Do we have any members using this yet?   @trkorecky @Polygon @CreepinDeth   Not sure if any of you do or not.  If you have... please post up your experiences. 

From what I've read, GeForce Now is one of... if not the leader in cloud gaming at this time.  You have to own the games... all digital of course.  You can play them from "the cloud to your laptop, desktop, Mac, SHIELD TV, or Android device."

Check out the FAQ:
GeForce Now FAQ

So... has anyone tried this?  what are your thoughts?  Are cloud gaming services the future?  Post it up!

Cloud Gaming / Cloud Gaming - The Future of Gaming?
« on: April 11, 2020, 01:39:49 PM »
IN THE CLOUD...  It's been the slogan for data centers, applications / Software (SaaS), services, infrastructure (IaaS), and many other aspects of IT.   Now we have Gaming in the cloud.. or Gaming as a Service (GaaS)?  Is this the future?

This is more than just a Steam platform... this is essentially taking the hardware and processing of the game out of your living room, console/PC... and placing it in the hands of those running the cloud service.   You just have a monitor device and "controller" to connect to that service... and your monitor / screen  just feeds you the visual of what's happening.  All the processing of the game happens in someone else's datacenter.   It's certainly different... but that means entire monthly service contracts to use the service instead of owning the console or pc.  Certain services are gaining more popularity... but this hasn't fully entered the main stream yet.

What are your thoughts?  Is this the way of the future?  It certainly is for many companies moving their datacenters and workloads into the cloud.   But what about gaming?

Thoughts, comments?  Post it up!

lol.. I read this and was thinking of @mastermario   ... if I'm right, he was playing this.

Accidental Cross-play makes Star Wars 'Jedi Academy' a console bloodbath -

So it appears veteran PC Players have been finding a way to make it to the remastered Console version and wrecking Console players.  Is this a case where Console players just need to play better?   OR is it truly unfair and a disadvantage?  I found this article to be pretty funny.

Thoughts? Comments?  POst it up!
