To piggyback on that notion, I think that gamers fall into two groups nowadays - gamers who play to be challenged and gamers who play to relax. If people want to be challenged while playing a game, there is a sense of accomplishment that comes from beating a difficult game or a difficult section of a game. But, I play to relax. My life is difficult enough as it is.

I admit, I've definitely changed in my old age. I used to start and beat everything on the hardest mode available, but I just don't have it in me anymore. I finally stopped when Max Payne 3 beat me down enough to see it wasn't fun anymore. I still start all the Halo games on Heroic, but that's about it for me. I actually shy away from games that mention extreme difficulty, as I just don't have the patience to be frustrated by something that's supposed to be fun. No shame!

Yes! I got out of it! She wasn't that excited after I showed her more H&W trailers, and Fandango did refund the tickets. It's a Christmas miracle! 😁

Brother-in-law wanted to see Holmes and Watson. They paid for my ticket so I went, and I still want my money back.

My girlfriend likes Ferrell comedies, so I bought her 2 tickets for her and a friend this Saturday so I wouldn't be dragged into that crap. This was before the reviews came out, and now her friend doesn't really want to go. Now I'm going, and dreading it. I really fucked that up...

If I were a betting man, I'd wager Pigsy's Perfect 10(dlc for Enslaved) gets a discount before ODST. And people have been waiting since 2010 for that sale

Wow. I've been waiting for that to go on sale for so long I forgot it existed until just now.

Really need to get an X now. How is it as a 4k media player? I've read some people have had issues using it as a 4k blu ray player.

There was a problem with black levels, but that was patched some time ago. Apparently they're adding Dolby Vision HDR for disc media soon, but not sure how that works.

I know no one really needs the recommendation, but if that's the Summer Sale just spend your money on Nier Automata. First game I've paid more than $20 for since the midnight release of GTA 4, and NA is worth every penny.

Got my Polk Melees in the mail today. Am I supposed to register them on the website for the mic/adapter or send an email? Or both?

I registered and after three days didn't get anything but an email with discount codes. Call them and give them your info, it will be shipped out to you the next business day.

To those looking for Xbox subs, you may want to wait until your sub expires. Mine ended on 12/20/15, then a one month for a dollar deal with a 10 day countdown appeared on my dash a few days later. I haven't seen one of those in years, so i guess they're coming back. Just a thought...

I just want OG Xbox support for Deathrow, Psychonauts, and Jade Empire. If they'd like to quit fucking off and make sequels to these games instead, that would be even better.

Nope. Free speech for everyone. Welcome to America!

Yes, but there are so many other words in the English language to convey what you're trying to. Unless you're in Junior High, then I guess it may be forgivable.

Easily my proudest achievement is Little Rocket Man from Half life 2 Episode 2.  Did without using any cheats or anything, and for the first half hour or so I was carrying the gnome around I didnt even know it was an achievement. 


That little bastard. His name was Charles, and I hate him. This reminds me of when I actually had time for shit like this, no chance of it these days. I still try and start all my games on the hard difficulty, but that's about as far as achievement hunting goes. Fuck growing up, I regret it.


Hell, I'm 34 and this thread is starting to make me feel young again. I'm gonna go fistfight a bear.

I took this screenshot last night (playing on PS4) because I couldn't stop laughing. After just 2 hours with the game, I can confirm that so far ESO is just a bunch of naked people playing music in the center of town...



Goddamn hippies!

Guy with CT, ice your wrist, take an anti-inflammatory, and give it a few days rest. A brace will help, but if your work is messing with your body that bad you may want to find a new job.
