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.

Now I just need it to be on Amazon Prime or something else... I'd like to give it a view.

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?

Nintendo - Switch, 3DS, and Wii-U / Re: Got a Switch Lite
« on: October 21, 2020, 07:18:01 PM »
@retro junkie yeah... I really wonder where they will go from here.    I do like the concept of the Switch Lite a lot... but I Wouldn't want to give up the regular Switch for it... if that makes sense...

I really had issues with the original GBA (without the back light).   It was cool... but really hard to see.

8
Not a single person has been playing this?    @targetrasp @retro junkie @Mai Valentine

I bet @MegaDrive20XX has been all over this title.

9
LOL...  It's definitely hard.  What do you think so far @retro junkie ?

LOL... I still think it would've been a great Karaoke song... but @SpartanEvolved didn't agree.   There's no way it's not still relevant.


btw... I still haven't watched the Sonic movie yet.   

11
@targetrasp lol... IF YOU ARE DONE... you need to go back and watch all seasons of X-Files again... back-to-back.   It's about time to do that again.   I've done it a few times over all the years while studying and doing other things while the episodes have been on.

We started watching a few of the monk, Eureka, and Psych episodes again.  Of course... parks n recs.   Especially after crazy days but have studying to do and what not.  I'm trying to accomplish 5-6 more certifications.  I am 6 more IT certifications completed now (4 AWS - I acquired all Associate certification and cloud practitioner, and 2 Linux).   To come... 3 more AWS, Red Hat, Ansible, and another.  So.. we tend to repeat certain shows.

It really is time to catch up on Star Trek though... I keep saying that... but it's time.

@CreepinDeth -- I am not familiar with what that is... what's the show about?

@AngelBob @Kinikko --> it's been awhile since we heard from you.  What are you binge watching?

General Discussion / Re: GameStop Going Down?
« on: October 11, 2020, 10:55:02 PM »
@CreepinDeth on the PS4 there is an option to backup.  You need to have the right sized Hard Drive to do it... but I've used it to move to newer / larger hard drives.  Is that what you are referring to? Also -   Maybe we should create a topic in PC ... that would be cool to describe what you do with Steam and take your games with you to new builds.  I can explain how I've done it in the past.   

@targetrasp yeah... the new Call of Duty: Cold War ... still odd there's no steel book... etc.

In the topic <a href="https://www.chickendinnergaming.com/forum/index.php?topic=805.0>Nintendo Direct - Super Mario Bros 35th - it didn't disappoint[/url], 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? 

15
@CreepinDeth @targetrasp  -- that's really disappointing LOL  ;D

I figured that as well... I really wish it was included.  MAYBE a download surprise ... and Nintendo was expecting someone to look for it as well.   Ehhh.... ehhh?

16
Is anyone else excited for this title?  I Figured there has to be a few Pikmin fans here.

A Winner Is You / Re: Rygar - FINALLY
« on: October 11, 2020, 08:29:48 PM »
LOL... NO JOKE.  Ziplining was horrible.

and yes, Megadrive... this game was difficult.  I'm not sure I ever beat it as well.  I remember playing it quite a bit in the arcade... and the NES version.  I did like the arcade version a bit better.

@targetrasp yeah... this book is really cool.   It is a bit pricey... but it's definitely a really cool design and has a large NES styled dust cover.  It's pretty crazy.. they did a really cool job with the cover

Nintendo - Switch, 3DS, and Wii-U / Re: Got a Switch Lite
« on: October 10, 2020, 11:46:32 PM »
That's an interesting take @retro junkie The Switch is definitely a change from previous Nintendo Handhelds.  I've been tempted to get a lite... And have it as my roaming switch.  I just haven't done it yet... And not sure I will

I really hope the Switch Lites don't have the joycon drift. 

Ugh the original GBA... talk about hard to see.  Games were great, it was just impossible to see the screen.

@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!

22
It looks like this is still at the same price - it's definitely a fun game to pick up at that price.    IF you like Shmups... and on the Switch... it's a great buy.

Good job @targetrasp   I bet this would make @MegaDrive20XX proud lol.  I remember  this being a tough game... at least that's how I remember it.

I'm sure this climate has been especially tough for GameStop.  It's been tough on a lot of businesses.  I'm not sure we have any other gaming stores anymore either...  I would have to look.  We used to have a few... and the city is definitely big enough for more than 1.  There are a several Gamestops here in a few locations.. pretty strategically placed.   Maybe a Gamestore would be a good idea again... LOL... and maybe not.  ;D

25
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 Xs - theverge.com

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

Thoughts, comments, post it up!

@targetrasp @XFaKToRX @Mai Valentine have you made any (or anymore) progress on this title yet?   ;D

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!

Pikmin 3 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch - amazon.com

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):

PC Rigs, Builds, and Peripheral Devices / Re: RTX3080 Already Sold Out?
« on: September 23, 2020, 09:59:30 AM »
Exactly - and the other part that sucks is that others cannot get into it as easily... especially at the scalped prices.  Oh supply and demand... how wonderful are thy ways.

I'm trying to wait 2 years before I build another pc.. and just being satisified with the Dell G5 gaming laptop.  It's pretty nice though... I must say.   I've had it since 2018 and it still works well... though I haven't really been gaming on it... but mostly studying now - AWS, Ansible, Linux and crafting all sorts of good stuff there.
