I mean is there anything of note actually launching with the PS5? During their press conferences, I didn’t think they had firm dates for much of anything.

Not really.  Just like the PS4/XBox One X launch in 2013.  Neither had any decent exclusives for many months.  Best game I played was Assassins Creed Black Flag which was on the older consoles too.  It was cool to get a console on launch day but no so sure I will bother this time.

1st game I beat was DOOM on the pc. My father was a CAD designer and had access to very powerful computers. He would pick me up from the house and take me to his work. His coworkers and I would play DOOM over LAN. That ended shortly after I was playing some race car sim and actually bricking a $20,000 pc. The company was not pleased but  never found out what happened so thankfully no one lost their jobs.

I think Doom was my first too probably.  I played games on 2600, NES, Colecovision and a few others but don't recall ever finishing them.  I ran a BBS back then and someone uploaded one disc each night.  I chatted him and was like tell me why I shouldn't delete this.  It takes forever for someone to download all 6 (IRC) 1.44 floppies.  He convinced me to try it (I had two PCs) and I stayed up until day break playing it.  I hadn't played a video games like that in years before that.

Did people forget that some PS3 models played ps2 games? And a few even played PS1 and PS2 games...

 

 

I had the PS3 MGS4 that was backwards compatible.  I played a handful of PS2 discs my FIL had on it.  Was it worth the $100 premium?  Probably not.

I feel like 3 is the best of the numbered Far Cry games, but Blood Dragon is by far the best in the series. Funny how Blood Dragon was basically an expansion for 3 though- the series has never reached those highs ever again. It needs an Assassin's Creed style reboot badly these days.

I liked Blood Dragon a lot more then I thought I would.  I started it on 360 but didn't get too far.  Then for a couple years didn't have a XBox.  Finally gave it another try when I got a XBox One.  Glad I finally gave it a second chance.  Really cool game.

I just liked the enemies and environment better in 3. Didn't like 5 all that much. Didn't care for playing in Montana or wherever it was based in.

4 is just more of 3. Didn't seem to innovate or do anything better. Didn't like the boss as much as 3 either.

4 is ok but was a bit of a let down for me. To be fair I didn't play 1 or 2.


I didn't start playing till 4. Why is 3 the best in the series?

Just grabbed Far Cry 3: Special Edition for $2.99.  Best game in the series.  I don't really care about the others. 

I just grabbed this too.  Best of the series as far as I am concerned as well.

I wonder about it because Amazon never charged tax here until they started setting up warehouses.

I am pretty sure Amazon just started collecting sales tax in all states that have sales tax a few years ago.  They were under a lot of pressure from various states to do so.

Seems a whole lot of people in different parts of the country for a website, that you'd also have to transition from being a in person sales rep but I don't know. Just something I saw, I'm sure you know...

I agree with you.  They aren't going to need all these in store employees to work at the website.  Whatever that even means.

Thanks everyone. Shitty day is behind me and results sound good.

Now back to playing games ...if I don’t fall flat on my face first.

We would go out for a deluxe pancake breakfast/lunch after.  Happy to hear it went well and is done.

And not working on PS4 which sold probably twice as many consoles didn't help either.     

 

Twitch had a massive head start and a lot of people didn't want to switch. That's basically it.

https://www.reddit.c...360_games_will/ Here's the reddit post about 360 games showing up in the store like Xbox One games for Alpha Skip Ahead users.

Only took them 7 years to figure this out!

Yup. It turned me off the game when I initially bought it. Insta death mechanics suck ass. I just beat the get last week because I forced myself through it and the game got better. Upgrade your shiv asap and it gets somewhat manageable.
 

I rage quit while playing it on PS3 due to this.  Pissed me off.  Ended up buying the code for $10 or $15 on PS4 and got through it.  Was glad I gave it a second chance.  But yeah I can see how people who hate stealth would never finish this game.

I haven't played anything in about a month.  Been sick (not covid).  Hopefully get back to BL3 on PS4 soon though.  Feel free to add me if you want.  PSN jimbo8574

 

If I can help you with loot or boosting I will. 

 

Nice tip. I will have to check it out.  I have the game on PS4 as well. I have only played a little (only have a level 12 beast master) on the PS4.

Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe physical is $29.99 at Best Buy.  Cheapest that I've seen it.

Doesn't seem like they ever fixed the issues some people (me) were having with the game crashing XBox One X consoles when trying to join other peoples games?  Last I saw (about a month ago) it was still an issue for some.

Just a heads up for those with XBox One X who are interested in BL3.  Great game but seems pretty damn buggy for many on X.

Now to level up the other 2 character classes. Game is a lot of fun. Loving every minute of it.
