General Discussion / Falcon and Winter Soldier
« on: April 02, 2021, 10:35:43 PM »
Alright... who is checking this one out?   So far, I think the Falcon and Winter Soldier is pretty great.   The Winter Soldier movies and episodes always tend to be a bit darker.  So far, the 1st 3 episodes are great.  I cannot wait until the next episode.  I really hope this is longer than 1 season.

This just arrived in the mailbox... nails in the coffins:

We are closing PlayStation™Store on PlayStation®3 on July 2nd, 2021 and on PlayStation®Vita devices on August 27th 2021. Additionally, the remaining purchase functionality for PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) will also retire on July 2nd, 2021.  After thoughtful consideration, we decided to make these changes in an effort to focus our resources for PlayStation Store on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5, which will enable us to enhance the customer experience even further. We thank you for your support on these platforms throughout the years.

What does this mean for you?
You will no longer be able to purchase PS3, PS Vita and PSP digital content, including games and video content.

You will also no longer be able to make in-game purchases through games on PS3, PS Vita and PSP.

While the PSP storefront was previously closed in 2016, the remaining PSP purchase functionality (e.g. in-game purchases) will now be fully retired.

What about content you already own?
• You will still be able to download your owned PS3, PS Vita, and PSP content, including games and video content.
• You can download your owned content onto your PS3, PS Vita, or PSP by accessing the Download List on the respective device.
• If you have purchased a PS3/PS Vita cross-buy bundle and have only downloaded either the PS3 or PS Vita version, you will need to download the other version prior to the closure of PlayStation™Store on the relevant device.
• Video content that you own can be streamed on PS3, PS4 or PS5 through the My Videos app, or on mobile devices through the PlayStation™Video app.
• You will still be able to re-download and play game titles you have claimed through PlayStation®Plus as long as you remain a member of the service.

What about vouchers, wallet funds, and cross-buy content?
• You will still be able to redeem game and PlayStation®Plus vouchers on PS3, PS Vita, and PSP devices once PlayStation™Store and purchase functionality for these devices close.
• You will no longer be able to redeem PSN wallet fund vouchers (e.g. gift cards) on PS3, PS Vita, and PSP devices once PlayStation™Store and purchase functionality for these devices close.
• Your PSN wallet funds will remain in your PSN account, but you will only be able to use your wallet funds to purchase PS4 and PS5 products on PlayStation™Store on the web, PlayStation®App, or on PS4 and PS5 consoles.
• You will still be able to purchase cross-buy content through PlayStation™Store on the web, PlayStation®App, or on PS4 and PS5 consoles and access both the PS4 version and the PS3/PS Vita/PSP versions.

Where can you find out more?
Read our FAQ for more information: https://www.playstation.com/support/important-notice/      
               
   
PS Vita messaging service
As of June 28th, 2021*, users on PlayStation Vita will no longer be able to use the messaging service. Although messaging on PS Vita is going away, your messages will still be available to you by using the messaging service on PS5 consoles, PS4 consoles, and via mobile on PS App.

*Termination will start on June 28th, 2021, actual date of the termination may differ by region.

Did anyone see this?



It's been awhile since I've played a TMNT game. This actually looks like it might be decent.  It has old arcade style action... even one of the enemy guys are thrown at the screen.   This appears to be a throwback to the Super Nintendo Turtles in Time. It has somewhat of a classic theme as well.  @retro junkie - this one may be for you.

I figure @MegaDrive20XX will be tracking this game! 

Thoughts. Comments. Post it up

I gave up trying to get  PlayStation 5 in early December.  For now, I am waiting.  However, it was interesting on how they created the grip texture of the controller.  Check this out:

How Sony designed the PS5’s ultimate Easter egg - theverge.com

I wonder how many people did / didn't notice this.

4 more games are coming to the NES and Super NES - Doomsday Warrior, Psycho Dream, Prehistorik Man, and Fire N Ice... a puzzle style game.

NES & Super NES - February 2021 Game Updates - Nintendo Switch Online<\a>

Psycho Dream... does anyone remember that?   What are your thoughts on these additions?   
@retro junkie you've probably knocked these out already  ;D

Cloud Gaming / Amazon Luna - Did anyone get the Early Access
« on: February 05, 2021, 12:59:12 PM »
Has anyone requested and received early access to Amazon Luna?
amazon Luna - amazon.com

Here is a list of compatible devices:
Amazon Luna Compatible Devices and Browsers - amazon.com

I guess it's another cloud service... but I'm curious if it's work it.  So far $6 per month. 

If you haven't tried it... are you interested or think you will try it?

General Discussion / Wandavision - Is anyone watching?
« on: January 30, 2021, 10:07:27 AM »
Due to Covid.. Black Widow was moved to 2021... at least at this time.  So now we have Wandavision... and it looks very interesting.  I am thinking of paying for a year of Disney+ to check this out.

Who is watching?   What are your thoughts? 

WandaVision returns with a wallop to the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper - tv.avclub.com

It definitely looks pretty cool.   Thoughts? Comments?  Post it up

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

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:
DUTCH JUDGE RULES THAT EA SHOULD BE FINED €500K EVERY WEEK UNTIL IT REMOVES FIFA LOOT BOXES - videogameschronicle.com

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 - blog.playstation.com

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?

All,

Prime Day is coming up and starts October 13 and goes through October 14.  I have added one ad to the top of the page for Prime Day... but all links will work.  In the post for this announcement will also be a link that will give credit to this site.   ANY AND ALL purchases you make on Amazon through these links 100% help.  Purchases help this site in the way of providing a little money back to the site for Hosting, upgrades...etc.

If you have any questions, please let me know... I personally appreciate all the help you provide.

Thank you,

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 - Amazon.com

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:
ANNOUNCEMENT – CALL OF DUTY®: BLACK OPS COLD WAR EDITIONS DETAILED, AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW - callofduty.com

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.

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 - theverge.com

Did you already get yours?   ;D
