I only played Phantasy Star IV on the mega drive...

I only played Phantasy Star III... and I am forever a pariah on the internet because I thought it was entertaining. 

Phantasy Star 2, 3 and 4 on the Genesis were all very good during their time IMHO.

 

EDIT:

Can confirm. GoW is legit.

Gears of War was always legit IMHO... ;)

 

EDIT 2:

*Any price is far too high to play exclusive games we really really want to play but can't because they're not on pc.

So we just incessantly whine instead.

And then if by some miracle of the gods they do end up on steam we won't buy them anyway because they're too much money and will just wait for a bundle.

* - life according to mysterd

This is supposed to be CheapAssGamer, not FakeyBroGamer.

Emphasis on cheap.

 

EDIT 3:

My wall didn't keep out the console owners.
CAG PC gaming community I have failed you.

It's okay. I'm some 11 hours into Destiny 2 (PC version for Battle.Net) and think it's awesome, even despite being always online.

 

At least that game actually hit the PC.

Whelp... Battletech seems to be scratching an itch I'd forgotten I missed.  More Mechcommander than Battletech though.  I didn't expect to get tabletop kinda games but it woulda been nice.  And it's been so long since I even bothered in the universe, it's hard to remember all the pre-invasion information.  I didn't care for the game until the clans brought something interesting to bear. (IMO)

 

We'll see though.

PS4 Pro 1TB $320 @ Target (HAVE TO USE RETARDED CART WHEEL APP)
For less than (or around) the cost of a GPU Upgrade, you can get a PS4 Pro!

Great deal on a PS4 Pro at Target via Cartwheel. Definitely considering pulling the trigger...

https://slickdeals.n...6#post114635371

thinking about:
RDR & Last of Us Remastered. haven't thought about ps4 for so long...


PS4’s exclusives are fantastic, definitely worth it if you can swing the cost. The new gow will likely be my goty. Soo good.

Last of Us wasn't worth a damn on PS3... I cannot fathom paying for any amount of money to play a remastered version. (Unless they reworked the game play mechanics.)

GoW is God of War. Gears is Gears of War... Not even sure how this can be up for debate as God of War was likely on the second game by the time the original Gears of War released. :)

He's used it before... I see it used everywhere and that shit annoys me to no end. It's right up there with D2 meaning Destiny 2.

If we need WWIII to fix this acronym/abbreviations BS give me the button I'm all for it.

I'm really liking D2, since you mentioned that. Both of them - i.e. Destiny 2 and Diablo 2.

The other D2, Division 2, isn't even out yet.

 

Interesting of all, all of those D2's are loot-crazy games.

 

Speaking of WWIII - but, I thought Black Ops 4 was the next COD game... ;)

Speaking of GoW, I wonder what's David Jaffe up to these days.

 

I also guess many people would mostly play TLoU for story & character stuff, since supposedly it's one of the things they've always been good at it...kinda like BioWare.

Another day and another Steam game impression. Today's is Flinthook...which I got in a sale a while back (yup...should have waited till it was bundled).

 

Honestly it's a pretty well made game and is a decently fun rouge lite game overall. The platforming is a little cumbersome sometimes as it's tricky to slow down time and use your hook shoot and other abilities.

 

Story: Another low story game. You are a guy and your story is that you need to keep taking out stronger and stronger space enemies for some reason. The lore is all through pages you find in the story. 3/10

 

Graphics: Honestly they are pretty good. The animations are well done and environments are generally easy to tell things apart. I have a hard time seeing the floors where the knives activate, as they blend in too well. Well done overall. 7.5/10

 

Sound: Pretty alright enough music and a lot of good sound effects. Overall decently done. 7.5/10

 

Gameplay: Honestly it's a bit repetitive. You go through where you want to hunt a big bad guy down. To get there you have to take on enough ships, get the navigation gem, have enough gems to locate the big bad buy, and then go and fight him.

 

These ships each have modifiers with different rooms or layouts. They seem extremely samey after a while though. Every now and then you get a warning on the screen and have to fight a gauntlet of enemies. If you win, you get some treasure and some health. It's always the same. Some areas get you artifacts, food for health, lore, etc... It just all blends together and maybe takes too long to take down a ship. You will have to keep doing it too.

 

The controls are weird at first with the hook and jumping and incredibly clunky slow down mechanism. I got used to the jumping and shooting and hook shooting, but never got used to holding down shift for slowdown and doing other thing. I hate it honestly and it could have been handled better on keyboard and mouse. I didn't use my Xbox 360 controller. 7/10

 

Fun Factor: Honestly it was pretty fun at first, but after about 3-4 hours I find it extremely repetitive. The hook shooting is fun, but the exploring gets old. The gauntlets are more annoying than anything, and it's torture to die as you have to keep going through a set number of stages to find the boss again. I will likely play it off and on, but i'm very tired of the game play loop already. 6/10

 

There is a lot to like with this game, but it falls into the rouge lite hole where the story is basically non existent (only in lore items), the random generation becomes samey, the enemies get old, and the gameplay loops becomes less and less satisfying over time, other than getting used to the interesting controls. I think I'll barely recommend it, but I'm about ready to put it into the retired category.

D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die is an episodic graphical adventure video game developed by Access Games and originally published by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox One. The title represents the phrase "Dark Dreams Don't Die" and the fourth dimension (time).[3] The game is unrelated to the D video game series.[3][4] The initial release contains a prologue and two episodes that make up season one of the series. A PC version was released on 5 June 2015, published by Playism in partnership with Access Games. In October 2016, Hidetaka Suehiro announced via Twitter that he had left Access Games and that there would be no more episodes of D4.[5]

Never played it. Have no idea.

 

I mainly know about it because it was a headliner for the M2 console.  Thought it looked really cool in that issue of Next Generation magazine.

Also, this might be the news you all have been waiting for.

 

Is the great graphics card shortage finally ending?

 

We have felt the pain of the graphics card shortages for the past three months, but thankfully that pain is finally coming to an end. Over the past week, we've seen stock of Founders Edition GPUs at Nvidia.com come and go a few times, selling at the official MSRP. Custom cards are also showing up, with factory overclocked models going for a small price premium over the stock models. We've seen the EVGA GTX 1070 Ti FTW for $510 (and it's still currently available), and the RX 580 4GB for $250 (sold out now).

The good news is that prices are now at least in a somewhat reasonable range, and if the current trend continues, we should see cards selling at MSRP within the next month. If you've been struggling to justify upgrading to a faster GPU since Christmas, these are the best prices we've seen since early January. Hopefully May will be even better.

And of course Foxhack would know about the furry drawing on dA that the game Furry steals art from. You got your HoG and casual granny game-playing Motoki mixed up with Furhack from south of the border, inm8.

Hopefully things will stabilize on the GPU front.  There's a bit of buzz about a Digitimes article from yesterday that several manufacturers were seeing a 40% drop in shipments in April but also suggests the possibility of a rebound.

In line with the shipment drops, gross margins for graphics card makers are expected to fall sharply to 20-25% from a high of 50% enjoyed earlier as makers and channel distributors are forced to slash prices for sales promotion. They hope the market demand can rebound in May or June.
