My fleshlight let's me buy whatever I want. Fleshlight understands that I worked for those dollars so I get to make the decision on how to spend those dollars regardless of whether it's a responsible or frivolous decision. I treat Fleshlight with the same respect and don't criticize it's monetary decosions. The olny grounds for dispute are failure to meet your fiscal responsibilities. My disposible cash is mine to dispose of and Fleshlight's disposible cash is Fleshlight's to dispose of. I don't criticize Fleshlight's $500 shoes (I only compliment Fleshlight on the new shoes) & Fleshlight doesn't criticize my Xbox One X purchase (Fleshlight just asks if I'm having fun).

Wait till you marry the fleshlight...

For anyone who has play FFXIII-2, is the game a lot shorter than the first one? The game says I'm 17 hours in and it feels like I'm nearing the end since

I bought fusion frenzy digitally when it was on Xbox 360 but the emulation was pure crap. I better still own that digitally

Oh come on....

My wife is probably going to kill me but she spends a ton of money on makeup and crap. She’ll argue that she’s doing it to “improve herself” no matter how much I tell her she doesn’t need expensive makeup.

But dammit, my Xbox One X will give me relief from my stressful job so it’s improving me as well! ;)


Does she goto Nordstrom and buy up Tom Ford crap?if so ouch to your wallet/bank account.

Just went to buy it and it says I own it so I guess I'm good to go when they go live. Really can't wait to see if

Y’all need a budget. Both of you need categories that are your blow money. If you spend your blow money (and no more) then there’s no criticism.

The "not a kid" seems unnecessary. Everyone has hobbies. Granted I get the unending criticism from being a wrestling fan, but she likes Twilight so I consider it a wash.

WrestleCircus 1st anniversary show is streaming live on Twitch right now.

I can't see why enjoying video games is any more of a waste of time than watching tv/movies or reading a book. It's just a different form of entertainment. None of which are useless.

It's a hobby just like any other. It's no more of a waste of time as watching sports, reading, watching tv/movies, collecting stamps, etc.

Probably because most people believe that video games are supposed catered for "kids"

My wife and I have been married for over 10 years. We have separate bank accounts (a joint savings). We split the bills evenly and save evenly for vacations, etc. As long each of us has money for our share of the bills we don't care what the other one is spending their money on.

Hard for me to justify to my wife when I am personally not sold I need or even want it now at $500.  I didn't want a XBox One OG for $499.99.  I also don't want the XBox one X for $499.99.  I don't have a 4K screen.  Just upgraded my video game TV to a 39" 1080p set 3 months ago.  

 

15 years ago when I was single and rented a modest apartment and didn't own a house?  I probably would have a 4K set and XBox One X on preorder and a PS4 Pro.

 

Really depends on where you are in life.  If dropping $500 on a console isn't a big deal to the budget/expenses and you want it I don't see the big deal.  Or if you have $500 in credit at Game Stop or somewhere.

 

If you are married with kids, mortgage, car payments, college tuition to repay etc. you have to weigh all that.

 

Add to that there aren't many new games with XBox One X support.  Sure lots of games I already played are getting patched but other then FM7 I don't see a console seller.  Just like when the PS4 and XBox One originally came out.  It was 1.5 to 2 years before there were enough games IMO.  I had a PS4 at launch but could see why many people waited.

 

And congrats to those who are getting them at/near launch.

Woah woah woah.

 

VIdeo games teach social skills, if you know someone is playing a MMO or you're playing as a team in an online match.

Video games teach you spacial awareness, improves cognitive abilities and enhances memory recall.

Video games teach players strong motivational skills, objective and goal driven attitudes.

Video games teach players how to think on their feet, build up tactics and strategy on how to overcome the game's obstacle (A.I., level design or player).

Etc, etc.

 

Basically you're enjoying an active form of entertainment, compared to passive forms from TV, movies or reading and you get a lot out of playing video games.

Get a wife/girlfriend that respects you for who you are, that doesn’t look down on your hobbies.

For BC talk, I think all of the Star Wars games, including the bad ones, have a decent chance at becoming BC, if EA has any power over this AND they start selling digital copies of them. LucasArts must have owned all rights to everything, so Disney should now. At the very least Pandemic, that was bought and killed by EA, made the original Battlefront games.

 

Out of these games I'll definitely be hopping back into KotOR first, and I'll probably try to track down Bloodrayne II since I liked the original way back when, and never really played the sequel.

So far we have these companies represented outside of Microsoft, they seem to pretty much line up with those who've supported 360 BC:

 

Ubisoft

Namco

THQ-Nordic (new company that owns Red Faction II)

SNK-Playmore 

EA/Bioware or Disney (hard to say who would need to give the approval for KotOR, probably both EA and Disney)

Tecmo (Kind of weird the Ninja Gaiden II isn't BC already, but they have a couple 360 games BC)

Double Fine (Majesco shouldn't really have any say for Psychonauts, I think this is their only game on Xbox Prime anyways.)

Majesco (they do own Bloodrayne still though)
2K Games (? I think this would be who owns Sid Meier's Pirates now.)

 

For anyone who has play FFXIII-2, is the game a lot shorter than the first one? The game says I'm 17 hours in and it feels like I'm nearing the end since

Spoiler

I 1000/1000ed it years ago. To do this you have to do everything in game except completely fill out the monster codex (whatever it's called). With the codex this means you don't have to have all the info discovered but at least defeat (maybe just see) all enemy types in the game once. I believe I was somewhere between 40 and 50 hours. If I'm remembering correctly finding the cores means you have to go back to some previous areas and takes a decent amount of time.

 

Overall I'd say the game is shorter than the original, though I never finished XIII. There isn't really anything overwhelming time consuming to do, and if you just want to see all the story content you can probably shave like 5 hours off.

Personally I couldn't date someone long term that wasn't at least neutral on gaming, it's just too much of my life overall. 

 

If your GF or BF can't at least understand that it's a hobby that you enjoy and let you have it, either it will cause friction eventually, or they will try to make you drop it and it's up to you if either is worth it I guess.

 

I think your only real chance is to try and get her to have some appreciation through some co-op, or by showing some of the top-tier story focused stuff and hope she sees the light, but it's a long shot. Those have been the only things I've seen make any ground with people that don't "get" video games, but it's still pretty rare.

Gaming is a waste of time. IMO if your not learning something or raising kids or working hard then you're wasting time. Movies are a waste, trash tv is a waste, a lot of things we do are a waste of time. I'm okay with wasting time and so is my wife, as long as all the important stuff is done. As an adult I just have certain things I have to do before I can do the time waste things. Reading this is wasting time too :)

the marketplace browsing is always so pooey compared to psn

 

is there an easy way to keep track of just the original xbox digital games available? and to be on the lookout for more to come
