Yeah I changed my opinion of Arcanum after playing it again :P It's steampunk, I know, but if you enjoy cyberpunk it's likely you'll enjoy steampunk aesthetics as well, which is why I just gave it as suggestion.


Just like PS:T I'm sure Arcanum is a great RPG, but I just couldn't enjoy the game the same way as I could Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale (even though IWD obviously lacked good story). Then again PS:T is still above Arcanum in my opinion, but I guess that could be because I haven't played that much of Arcanum.

I suppose there are better places to ask this, but I thought I could also give a try to the folks around here - I've wanted a Nintendo 3DS for years now, but now, with both the eminent end of its life cycle, the prices dropping thanks to the Switch, and the fact I spend more and more time out of home, I've felt it was a good time to pick up a cheap unit and some of the titles I've been curious for so long second-hand.

 

Thing is, I'm definitely not throwing away over 100 euros on a new unit, and so I either wait forever for a possible deal opportunity or pick up a console in good condition off a thrift shop that does deals every now and then and offers two years of warranty. My choices are between one of the old 2DS (they have several Pokémon Moon editions in great condition - sadly without the SD card, and so without the game), and for the same price one of the old 3DS models, also in really good shape.

 

I'm not particularly fond of the 3D effect, plus I have a feeling either by the end of this year or by the next one, the remaining new consoles will be sold for clearance prices, so I just want something reliable to enjoy some games and later on pick up a newer one with larger screens if I stick to it, perhaps. Both those options offer basically the same specs minus the 3D effect - though for the same cash I'd prefer the full experience, these old 3DS models usually seem to have gone through more years of wear and tear (not only the battery, that I can pick up a replacement one for under 10 bucks around, but most importantly the hinge mechanism and a ribbon cable that seems to be a common failure with these).

 

In short, I wonder if a newer-ish old 2DS would be a more reliable option for some subway and in-between classes gameplay, not to speak I quite like the simpler and more rugged design reminiscent of a GameBoy and quite enjoy having these more unique special editions - and possibly pick up a new 2DS to enjoy the larger screens at some point in the future. Any experiences the NDS enthusiasts around here may share with me?

What is it with older games from the last few years and having to  run them in Windows mode and in admin before they'll run and work on Windows ten??

 

On my tom clancy's splinter cell conviction game it wouldn't work until I changed it to run in Windows 7 and for the game controller admin for the joystick to work right, and one of my other older games BioShock 2 needed this permission or setting's too

One of my childhood's favorite game doesn't want to run on Win10 too. Windows compatibility modes seems not to be working aswell. The pain is real.

That is not the case with any of the old games that I have. Always check this site for fixes and stuff for any old game that you have: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Home

So in mid 2000-es, i've had what appeared to be a pirated copy of Spyro Year of The Dragon. I was smol back then and didn't really understand how the pirate copies work and what consequences that could cause. So i totally ignored Zoe's warning at the end of the first homeworld. The game detected it's illegal ownership and enabled anti-piracy mechanics. There was plenty of those.
When they smoothly started to appear, i didn't really notice them. At the start they were sort of harmless - missing gems, temporary green Sparx etc. Bunch of bugs, i thought. But later on the game were messing up with the save datas and removing my eggs' progress. This prevented me to finally realise that there's something up with the game.

Years passed and i forgot about my bad experience with the game. But recently i've stumpled upon a whole articles about the piracy protection mechanics. Needles to say that i have even more PTSD now.

I'm trying to get the Steam Spring Cleaning Event 2019 badge and so far  I have 7 tasks completed, one was to play your first steam game purchase, which was Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, which I played for a few seconds and finished the task, I have to play the original skyrim from my library and Dishonored for other task in the  badge i think

Anyone here remember Hunter: The Reckoning? I think it was on the original Xbox.

I bought a xbox 360 game controller from amazon.ca at the beginning of the month and it's already broken, the left thumbstick  or axis  busted on it's lower  bottom part and the cars and people walk in  circles now on there own, luckily  I keep my old PC game controllers and fell back to my hori xbox one controller from a year or so ago which had  the X,A,B letters worn off the buttons and wasn't as comfortable to hold as a xbox 360 controller

 

Owe the xbox 360 controller I bought from amazon.ca it's xbox 360 controller had no stickers underneath it and might of been a repaired rejected controller from a private amazon seller

 

this was the seller that sold me the xbox 360 controller a month ago 

tyjtyrjty Xbox 360 Wired Controller white colour a friend of mine found where he bought  his stock from and he paid $8 dollars a  joystick from a China distributor, the friend knows how to track items to the original distributor

I've stopped buying things used, personally. Just always had bad experiences with it. I especially hate buying Consoles used. I remember when I was an Xbox guy, I had several 360's break down on me, and I always could only afford to buy used rather than new.

 

Ever since the new consoles, I've only bought the odd game used.

 

I guess it's a bit of paranoia, but man, so many people just don't take good care of things before they sell them.

At amazon.ca the buyer listed it as new, I'm speculating  and thinking he bought old stock or defective stock from the original manufacturer and fixed them up and resold them on amazon

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but if you're on Windows 10. The Xbox Game Pass is 90% off right now. That's $1.00 USD for a months subscription. You can play any of the Game Pass titles on PC that are marked as PLAY ANYWHERE.

 

Heres a list of Play Anywhere titles.

$1 isn't bad to give Gears of War 4 a try. I haven't played that series since my console days.

God damn it, I really wish I had an Xbox and not a PS4 sometimes. Backwards compatibility and the Game Pass. £1 for the first month? That's a really good deal.

 

Sony is seriously slacking when it comes to stuff like this.

While playing GTA V for the first time on a toaster, i've did a wacky scene by pushing NPCs. After i bought myself a PC, i had to remaster that scene.

You guys think I can get Anthem for free if I email EA customer service and ask them to give me a free copy because the game sucked ass? If I try multiple times, maybe I'll get a representative that feels me.

I would of pre-ordered cyberpunk 2077, but I'm hyped and almost sure I may buy Rage 2 deluxe edition at the end of the month, 99% sure, it's one of the months I get a extra tax credit from the government,  rewards for being over taxed in Canada

I used to not care, but I've got super obsessed with Platinum Trophies lately. I used to just play a game and move on, but there is just something so satisfying about doing everything a game has to offer. It's giving me a reason to dive in to my backlog again. As I started some games, and stopped part way through.

 

The buzz kind of started with the Nathan Drake Collection. It was infuriating doing it on Brutal and getting my ass kicked, but when I 100% every game, that felt so damn good.

Gamepass for PC:
 

I finally got around to do all the updates needed.  Tons...hours worth.  Days worth when you factor in I would just walk away during updates.  Keep in mind I started the same day as the e3 announcement.

 

Long story short;  If you like to have a gaming rig and an xbox console it's kinda of hard not to appreciate what you get for your money.

Microsoft have come a long way. Sony needs to really step up when it comes to giving gamers more options. They have Playstation Now which sucks compared to Game Pass, it could be fleshed out more. There should be more PS4 games, and it sucks you need to stream most of them.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is terrifying.

 

I got chased by an invisible monster in the water, and I never want to see water again. Holy f*cking sh*t that was scary.

Last time i played TF2 was in late 2017. There's a lots of YT videos that explain what is wrong with this game. Today i felt nostalgic and tried to boot it up again but i've been met with a crashes and same problems i've encountered a year ago. On top of that, devs literally added more ugly features in the game.
Guess im waiting 1 year more till i'll play it again.

Infamous: Second Son and Infamous: First Light are still beautiful looking games. Hard to believe they came out so long ago now for the PS4. The lighting is fantastic.
