    It's impossible to hurry through Tlou2, so much to see.

    Thoughts on 69.99$ games for Next Gen Consoles?

    in Gaming Discussion 18 hours ago

    hush404 said: Yeah, that's true, I wasn't thinking it would go up more. It seems to follow the trend of $10 over that of the US price and has for a while. I don't recall seeing an odd prices like $77.99 to make up for the difference in the dollar. I bought Horizon Zero Dawn at full price (actually got the CE for that) but think that's likely the last game I bought on release at full...

    I'll add some screens from Tlou2. The level of detail is amazingI can't get enough of the lighting in this game. Sadly a lot is lost without HDR but I found two screens that still look good in LDRThe flash light is a favorite. Playing with the shadows is always, but watching the ambient light changing color by what it bounces from is pure magic. Also a bit less without HDR but here's a good...

    Did Nintendo save gaming with the NES?

    in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

    There was no crash in Europe, however piracy was rampant driving revenue down. Nintendo introduced the perfect DRM with their cartridges. Cassette tapes and floppies were too easy to copy. People were not leaving gaming at all, instead it reached the point where it was just big enough to know someone else who had games so you could copy them off each other. '82 to '85 I mostly played on MSX,...
