    (Rumor) Resident Evil 8 details leaked, Q1 2021 release, Ethan and Chris return, and more

    in Gaming Discussion 4 hours ago

    Honestly, RE2 Remake should set the template for any future RE titles. It was the perfect survival horror game. It kept the atmosphere, basic survival horror mechanics, puzzles, and non-linear style of the original, but moved it to a third-person over-the-shoulder perspective and gave it proper, modern shooter controls (tank controls were garbage, and were purely a product of the limitations of...

    Which XBox Game Studios developer are you most excited to hear from next gen?

    in Gaming Discussion 8 hours ago

    At this moment, my most anticipated game is still Halo Infinite. I'm both excited and worried about it, and with the gap between Halo 5 and Infinite being the longest gap between main series Halo games (5 years, vs. the old norm of 3), the wait to finally get some substantial information and see some actual gameplay has been excruciating. Halo is still my favorite new franchise of the 21st...

    Lithium VS AA in controllers?

    in Gaming Discussion 8 hours ago

    Rechargeable AA batteries are cheap (at least over the long term compared to single-use disposable batteries) and can be used for a wide variety of applications beyond just game controllers. Swapping out batteries is easy, especially if you already have a charged up pair ready to go as you ought to (I have plenty). A removable lithium battery pack like the Xbox Play & Charge Kit would be fine as...

    How different of each other are XBOX, Nintendo and Playstation consumers?

    I'm someone who has owned nearly every major console ever, including all current-gen systems. I just like playing video games, and every system has something good to offer. If I had to guess... People that bougt a Switch mainly did so probably because they like playing Nintendo games. People that bought a PS4 and/or XBO probably did so because they like big-budget AAA titles and/or sports...

    YouTube no longer considers 720p as high-definition...

    in Gaming Discussion 2 days ago

    I bought a 55" 4K TV back in mid 2017, and I normally sit about 8 feet away from it. Once I started viewing content in 4K after getting an Xbox One X later that year, I immediately noticed an improvement. Details that were once fuzzy in 1080p became clear. The picture in general is noticeably sharper. Old 360 games running at 720p are almost unbearably blurry to look at now. 4K is definitely a...

    I should be in Tampa now. I had tickets to both Takeover and Mania, and was supposed to go with some friends. Now I'm just stuck sitting here at home, another non-essential worker with nothing to do but veg out in front of the tube and hope things turn out okay for me financially during this mess. While I'm fortunate enough to not have The Virus or know anyone else that has it, it's still an...

    Super Mario Titles to be released on Switch for Mario's 35th Anniversary

    Based on what we know about the PS5: What do you think is the cheapest it can can be and break even; What will be the actual price?

    in Sony Discussion on 28 March 2020

    Either $450 or $500.Currently, the PS4's launch price has an inflation-adjusted value of $444 (and, yes, inflation does matter; $400 for a console was obscenely expensive 25-30 years ago, but is reasonable now). So, $450 would be in line with that. Assuming the PS5 does cost as much to make as has been reported, I don't see them going with $400 as that might be too big of a per-unit loss. $500...

    Best decade for gaming?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 March 2020

    curl-6 said: By the last year of the 90s the transition to 3D was complete and we had the Dreamcast and games like Soul Calibur, as well as stuff like Half Life on the PC. F-Zero X on the N64 holds up really well too I think due to being one of the few 3D games of its generation to hit 60fps. Yeah, F-Zero X was a good one. Getting it to run at a steady 60 fps was a hell of an...

    How do you buy your games now?

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 March 2020

    I buy physical only, and I don't plan on changing that ever. However, I'm trying to minimize both my trips outside and my spending on non-essentials just in case, so in the meantime I'm going to work on my backlog. There are new and soon-to-be-released titles I was interested in getting (Doom Eternal, RE3, FF7 Remake), but they can wait. ...
