Does anyone have tips on playing without using the left thumb? I hurt that part of my hand at work last week and being off computer and console is forcing me to engage with things on an unmanageable level.


Could play something like Slay the Spire, can easily be played one handed and doesn’t require quick reactions.

Been playing a fair bit of Ooblets lately. That game is just the right amount of chill that I needed. I’ve always been troubled by the forced fighting and caging of Pokémon. It’s just a bit messed up to me. Ooblets have dance offs and follow you around out in the open. Not sure if it’s really doing anything new other than combining animal crossing and Pokémon but it does it well.

The double rewards points caught my eye.

It’s a bit amazing to me the number of people crapping on halo all over the internet. It was an 8 minute demo of an incomplete game, a clear vertical slice to show off different weapons, mechanics and style. People need to play some Ooblets and relax instead of getting all worked up.

The twitch stream has been pretty good for anyone suffering with YouTube.

I didn’t realize this pre show would lean so hard on streamers for content. I guess it appeals to some but sure not me.

Not big on the idea of Gold going away unless they roll the other benefits besides online play into GPU.  I know the GWG offerings have been kind of sub par for a while now but I enjoy getting 4 free games a month.  Game Pass offers a lot of great games but there isn't any ownership there.  Unless its first party there is no telling when a game will leave.  

 

I can see them getting rid of gold though, especially with the announcement of xlcloud being included in GPU.  Currently GPU is 15 a month for Gold, Game Pass Xbox, and Game Pass PC.  Remove Gold and people are more likely to switch to just Xbox Game Pass since they likely don't have gaming PCs and frankly GP on PC has been horrible.  I have had to redownload state of decay 2 multiple times, Outer World wouldn't ever start, and constantly getting download errors from within the game pass app and the windows store.  So adding XCloud to GPU could incentivize to keep paying for the higher tier.

Anybody playing Ooblets care to share any opinions?  That fish with legs is tempting me.

I had 10 bucks worth and cashed it in on an amazon card so I could get the super deluxe version of Borderlands 3 for 20 instead of 30. I’m weak.

If you need a $10/hr raise to pay for a raise in video game prices then you have problems way bigger than video games going up in price. A 10 cent an hour increase would get you an extra $200 a year (assuming 40h/wk) which would easily pay for the $10 difference on the handful of games that are worth buying at launch each year.

 

Also, if we're going by inflation, games should be closer to $80 than $70 by now.

I was speaking towards the disparity between the steep incline of inflation and the meager gains in salary that the economy of the last two decades has allowed many employers to give.  This doesn't equate to an inability to pay $70 for a game.  Its a general lack of desire to pay more for yet another thing, especially when in most cases games end up not worth the initial asking price to begin with.

 

Also why are you trying to justify a price increase to a community dedicated to being cheap?

70 dollars is a hard sell for a lot of games.  I know games haven't gone up in price since the 360 launch and inflation is a thing but sadly my pay hasn't gone up 10 dollars in an hour in that time either.

This is not allowed unless you put up a picture of your car next to your car in a video game (Because all of us car people have found our car and made it look like the one we own at least once).


This is true. I was surprised to find Forza 2 had an Altima in it and promptly went about buying it and making it look like mine. After that it was customizing 350/370zs because I’ve always wanted one. Finally got to test drive a 2008 350 last year and sadly discovered that at 6’ 1” and not as slim as I used to be I might be too big for it.

Blood pressure that high really needs to be medicated. Uncontrolled it can cause a lot of problems. I know the idea of taking a daily medication kind of sucks but once you start it’s not a big deal. I started taking Verapamil a couple years ago cause mine was over the line and causing severe migraines. Change the diet, exercise, and learn to manage stress and you can get off meds.
