      Lol I’ve had a PlayStation for each of the previous three cycles,… will most likely get a ps5 eventually too. I don’t online game much regardless however
      This sig will not change until The Browns win the Super Bowl... So get real used to it.

        I don't have a PS5 yet anyway, gonna wait till they're more readily available and maybe once the price drops. Gaming budget has taken a hit these days, I've gotta rational appropriately My damn PS4 is on the fritz too. Son decided to knock it off the TV stand and it hasn't been right since.

          please be a throwback to the original story,… hopefully in a Breath of the Wild mode as you fight to the castle,… or even Metroid Dread which is great thus far

            What's your handle on Xbox? I was a PS4 guy, but Gamepass is such a ridiculous value that I couldn't stay away and got a Series X earlier this year.

            Funnier than you in 2012.

              I had to change it from my old 360 one,… I think it’s acamp1900 now, but I’ll confirm later tonight

              • I've been playing PGA Tour 2K21 lately. Got it free with PS+ subscription for this month.

                It's brutal at first, but man is it fun once you start to figure things out. It gives you some decent flexibility in adjusting the gameplay and difficulty to add to the challenge once you start to figure it out, too, so it doesn't get stale very quickly like other golf games I've played.

                I wish it had more real-life courses, but I assume EA has a deal in place that prevents 2K from getting most of them. The offerings are decent, and their generic courses are pretty nice, so it's been fun. I'll finish another year or two of my career with the difficulty jacked up and then move on to online matches if the game is still scratching a golf itch.

                  I haven't played a golf game since Tiger Woods '07 I think. The older Tiger games allowed you to challenge legends and win money for performance at various PGA events, and then you used the money to upgrade your character stats and enhance your clubs/gear/etc. At some point the newer gold titles stopped awarding you money though, which kind of sucked. Took some of the fun factor out of it.

                  How do you advance in this one? I think I got it too as part of PS+.

                    Konami has a mixed track record with 3D titles in that franchise. I'd like to see them stick to 2D platformer, but I'd also rather see Koji Igarashi in charge again personally...not that it matters I guess since he's doing his own Castlevania knockoffs and they've been great.

                        There is a 'leveling' system, but it unlocks clubs and cosmetic items, rather than attribute increases. You also get in-game credit that you can use to purchase the clubs and cosmetic gear as you progress. But the game is much more about consistency and controlling your shot, which means attributes getting jacked up would mess with the realistic simulation style they're going for.

                        So, rather than dumping a bunch of points into a 'Drive' stat and crushing 400-yard shots, you can buy a club that will take your max distance from 275 yards to 295 yards, but also cuts down on the swing-plane forgiveness, which has a true effect on your game. You have to swing the stick the same way every single time, or you're going to slice the shit out of the ball, just like real life. I like it.

                          That was very true of the old games too. You had to develop consistency with the controller and your swing, you couldn't just survive off attributes. You had to fine tune your putting, although once or twice a match I think you could "cheat" a bit with Tiger Vision to sink a long ass putt you probably would have missed before. If you even edged a hair to the left or right when you went back with your swing it usually ended in a slice or hook. I don't know, when they took out the money making aspect of the Tour and using that to boost attributes I felt like a big part of the game was getting taken out. I don't know why, but I love games where I can tailor custom characters and skill points.

                          • Thus far FIFA has been great... idk if they changed the game engine or what but players feel much more human now. I see far less balls glued to players or super human goalies. Player movement seems more real etc. Pace has been reeled in too, fast players are still fast but you can't just run past guys anymore, which is good. I was playing with Werner yesterday and in 20 he could literally just run past guys... now with the ball not glued and physics being a bit more realistic sprinting toward a defender literally just gives the ball away. So far so good.

                            • Yeah defending in FIFA this year is a whole new deal... much harder... I may have to go to a 3 CB system. I have De Ligt and Škriniar and still have trouble making tackles or stops in my third.

                              Diving into NHL Be a Pro. It's a really fun career mode. They can still improve it but what's there now is super fun. I'm gonna deep dive it soon by trying to become either Buffalo's or Phoenix's Mario Lemieux (The guy that shows up and changes the whole franchise)... not sure which team just yet... prob Buffalo.

                              Metroid Dread is one of the better games of it's kind I've played in years... better than ritual of the night even.

                                • Metroid Dread is really fun imo... however I haven't played a Metroid since SNES so I'm also not comparing it to anything between then and now series wise.

                                  • I'm just glad it looks like they've gone back to a 2D side-scroller. Metroid Prime was okay, I just didn't feel like it held a candle to Super Metroid.

                                        That was probably my least favorite area in that game. I'm not a big fan of water levels in general.

                                        • Still having fun with Dread... last night I beat a boss on the first try for the first time (It usually takes like ten attempts to get a boss). I just obtained the double jump so i think I'm getting near the end if I were to push through... however once I get the ability to survive extreme cold I'm going map hunting as I'm sure I need to upgrade my missiles and health.

                                          Very fun but also the most difficult game I've played in years. The only saving grace is every time you die you start right where you left off.... but you die,... a lot.

                                              I don't care for Mario Party in general, but you can't go wrong with MK.
                                              Breath of the Wild is pretty good, but still feels a bit over hyped.
                                              Smash Brothers is a lot of fun, we've had some great nights going head to head in the household. Love some of the cross overs they did like with Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy. I enjoy just playing through the solo modes too and unlocking new things.
                                              My kids and wife really enjoyed Animal Crossing, I hadn't played it previously. They probably played that more than any other game by a good margin. I played a bit, but mostly to game the system and create money sources for them, like importing a bunch of exotic fruit trees to sell produce from Other than that I had fun pitting my wife and kids against each other with island politics deciding who should stay and who should go among the NPCs.
                                              Luigi's Mansion is a decent puzzle solver, my 7 and 10 year old played it quite a bit before one of them left the game out and the puppy chewed it up. Thanks for the teeny, tiny game carts, Nintendo! I didn't really play it other than helping solve a few puzzles, but it doesn't seem much different from the original on Game Cube.
                                              They got Minecraft for Switch too, but tbh I consider any version of Minecraft that isn't PC to be insignificant. If you can't mod it, why bother?
                                              The only other game we have is Just Dance. Nobody plays it besides my daughter and her friends so if you've got preteens in your household they may enjoy that.

                                                    It's a great system but it lacks the above... luckily I still have my Wii. The family and I were just playing Wii sports last weekend.

                                                      Not all in one game. There is Mario golf (which is pretty great IMO), Mario tennis, I know there is a boxing game that came out on launch, there’s also Mario vs Sonic Olympics 2020 which has lots of mini games like archery, sprinting, rowing, etc.

                                                          I don’t have tennis but I don’t use the motion controls on the golf game for similar reasons.

                                                          • I picked up Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition several months ago and finally got around to replaying it. Loved that game back in the day, used to play a lot of online servers too. One of my favorites was an entire server module someone made years ago that recreated the maps, dungeons, bosses, and pathing of Final Fantasy IV's story.

                                                            I honestly can't tell much of a difference between the Enhanced version and the original, but it's still a damn good game. The original campaigns still hold up pretty well, especially the main campaign and Hordes of the Underdark. Shadows of Undrentide is okay, it's a bit short and can be skipped, but it's still worth one playthrough. I still enjoy playing around with different class combinations with these games, role playing different moral alignments, making different choices and taking different companions, etc.

                                                            The one beef I've ever had with NWN was the main campaign's loot. There is just so, so many chests, creates, boxes and it seems like every damn one of them is locked You'll lockpick the container or bash it open, only to find 3 gold inside. I mean...is someone really going to put 3 gold in a chest and lock it? Fortunately they got away from this in SoU and HofU. There's a lot fewer loot containers, and it seems like the only ones that are locked are the ones with good loot. I swear, in the original campaign I spent half my time just bashing open chests.

                                                            Overall I think I spent less than $10 on a sale getting the Enhanced version. Even though I have the discs it's nice having an easily install copy via Steam that doesn't require all the work arounds needed to make the old NWN run on a Windows 7/10 machine. It's a great entry level game for anyone that has ever been interested in D&D. I have yet to play a campaign myself, I don't really know anyone that does it, but it opened me up to the world a bit and got me interested.

To teach students about gathering information to write an article. Though I am not sure. Maybe it was just one random professor?

To teach students about gathering information to write an article. Though I am not sure. Maybe it was just one random professor?
                                                                Both are very good games. It's been awhile since I've played Morrowind, but in both cases you tend to get a quest, follow clues and leads to where the problem lies, then solve the problem to complete the quest. That all of course can be said of any RPGs really, but I noticed that NWN does a good job of updating the Quest Log and describing everything that's happening and has happened leading up through the quest chain. From an information standpoint it's pretty thorough, probably one of the first RPGs to detail everything out like that as if you were reading a diary or journal. Morrowind may have had the same thing though, I need to revisit it again. Both NWN and Morrowind were actually released the same year.

                                                                  That's garbage. It was also a rewarding game because it didn't give directions on the map. You had to review your journal to figure out where to go.

This and The Shows career mode are the most fun I’ve had since NCAA went away

Early on it really helped with her reading, it became her summer reading project. If she develops a love of JRPGs in the process...bonus points.
