      I hate that EA took over the Star Wars license, the new squadron game brings back memories of x-wing vs tie fighter and the N64 rogue squadron, but I refuse to buy anything that company makes. My one company boycott.

      I despise EA very much. Here is one reason why. My kids have their own Xbox accounts but share Xbox Live as part of my family. This works flawlessly for every game except EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront and Battlefront II. These two games will only allow the primary Xbox live user to play online. When the kids want to play Battlefront II, they have to log in under my screenname. Otherwise, we would have to have pay for three Xbox live subscriptions.

      I also dislike their monopoly on sports games which are basically yearly subscriptions. They could easily update rosters every year but then they would lose out on that $60 per pop.

      I find that a lot of the older and simpler games have a way that they feel more "authentic" in how they engage and retain your attention. It feels to me that for the past ~ 10 years or so there's that underlying rewards / achievements system that is designed to keep you hooked, which is a turn-off for me...

      I bought it pre-order.

      I think I may hold off until vacation starts next Friday so I can dedicate my life to it for a day or two.


      I really hope that they don't make me buy the remaster a second time. I resented that last time.

      I'm currently replaying the first one, Probably about half through it, I remember it being a good game, but really forgot how great it is (playing my OG PS3 version).

      I actually found a online game that I really enjoy.



      So much fun doing the demolition derbies, and most of the tracks are a blast that lead to some really tight races, especially since they have lots of environmental hazards, that can knock you out of first place.


      I hate the techno/nu metal soundtrack. Thank God for being able to play Spotify instead.

      Bummer But at least the developers aren't rushing out a broken game riddled with game breaking bugs. I'm looking at you Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

      So a Wii is possibly incoming. Can anyone explain all these controllers I see online, need to figure out basically everything. Last system I owned was a Dreamcast.

      ...and why do I bother with eBay, stupid seller isn't shipping or responding.

      Interesting that a new game is coming out for the Wii...

      This is the default controller, and really all you need.

      Man The Last of Us 2 lives up to the hype. Absolutely amazing story, and gameplay.

      I purposely avoided pretty much everything related to it, until I had a chance to play it.

      Took a peak at what people were saying, and there is all sorts of negativity online about it. I guess anti SJW trolls have decided to try to review bomb it. I haven't beat it yet, but about halfway through, and there hasn't been anything remotely SJW besides a strong female character as the lead.

      Xbox one. I usually play NFSU 2, Forza 7, Forza Horizon 4, Mercenaries, and the O.G. Star Wars Battlefront II. Oh and the Spiro the Dragon trilogy remaster.

      Personally I like that Xbox allows you to down load early 2000's games. New games a ok but I like the nostalgia.

      Good to know, I heard it was getting a lot of flack and was concerned. I'm nearly done with my replay of the first one (at the tunnel leading to the hospital, so if memory serves I should be done tonight or tomorrow) so I'll go ahead and Amazon order a copy of part 2.

      I haven't read anything aside from some headlines (seem reddit trolls are trying to Mass Effect 3 it )

      Yes. Up to 4. 30ft range suggests Bluetooth. (searched, yes. Bluetooth)

      Look for ones with integrated MotionPlus. Some of the earlier ones needed an additional nugget on the bottom of the nunchuck to work with certain games.

      Does it play like the old PS1 Destruction Derby? If it does then I may have to check it out.

      Supposedly Ghost of Tsushima is about or should be released soon. Might hold of on Last of Us a little longer.

      Is anyone interested in 7 days to die or Ark? You can play either game solo but I can rent a server for $15 a month if a few people are interested. Both ark and 7d2d are $10 or less on steam right now.

      Edited because my fingers keep getting fatter.
