lmao, you could say that.

Went old school for a bit and catching up on some JRPGs I never finished.




! No longer available


I'm not really a fan of anime but this is the only old school Japanese RPG I'd ever play... Final Fantasy 7 because of its strong message about climate control and saving planet earth from corporate environmental damage...
---Oh,  and it's the only Final Fantasy in the series that features a black character.  :)

In World of Warcraft, there is a dungeon called Shadowfang Keep.

In this dungeon there is a white guy that runs it.

He has all these slaves called Worgen. (and now a playable Werewolf race)

Worgen spelled backwards is negroW.

After you defeat a Worgen they drop "snapvine watermelon" and "chicken legs".

Coincidence? (waits for Brotha Battle)

Told ya! ;D


...although I have never ever ever played world of warcarft,  I wouldn't know.
All I know is that blizzard entertainment is the worst goddamn company in the gaming industry that create knock-off versions of other games.  The company is staffed  shoulder to shoulder with inexperienced and cheap labor workers that nickel & dime their customers.


They can't even give their pos games away ''cause no one wants to be bothered by them.


I feel sorry for the unsuspecting youngster that picks up these godforsaken products on the store shelves not knowing what you posted.

Is that worth it?

I've never owned anything beyond a PS2.

Is an "X-Box Mega" (or whatever the next step is) about to come out later this year?

Nah! :-[

I picked up a barely used XBOX One S from a fence for $100. If you don't have a persistent online account, the XBOX One is useless because the unit will not activate offline like the other gaming consoles.

So I traded the brick for something that does work, like the PlayStation Vita.

The codename for the next XBOX version is called Scorpio and have no idea what the specs are.

It doesn't work offline AT ALL?
i'm still getting one. I'm team Xbox.
And Scorpio's specs are supposed to be bananas. I forget how beefy it'll be, but they are definitely shooting for 4K supremacy.
The new Mass Effect is coming soon. I must have my One by the release date.

Unless you are financially able to not only provide electrical power as well as a dedicated ISP, XBOX One will not work AT ALL. :)
I pick up a unit myself for a $100, it ain't even worth that because you would constantly spend money just to run the doggone thing...
Even if you could afford to run XBOX One for, say, 9 months... if for any reason your ISP gets cut off, so does everything you accomplished on XBOX One, even single player games.

Beefy hardware but it comes with too high a cost.
Simply not worth it in my judgment. :-\





Now back to locking down the server farm in ALIEN: ISOLATION on the PS3! ;D

Okay folks, what's up with this Nintendo Switch?

How does this work? I presume there's an online component..

It's supposedly the latest Nintendo console since Wii U.. (which I absolutely know nothing about)

Is Nintendo still "family friendly" exclusive with the types of games it has now?

Very!  :)

I don't know much about Switch myself but here's what I do know:

I just peeped the latest television ad about the device over the weekend, and it's clear to me that Nintendo is going for that sweet spot:  Rated E for Everyone market share.

I'll definitely say this about Nintendo... they are just like Sony by experimenting with new ideas and innovative game design. Separating the monitor from the controller and allowing the controller to be shared with another person...?
...or taking both controller components to combine for a single player experience...?
...or attach all components together and carry the device with you...?

Genius. 8)

Hype, Nintendo specializes in fun.

Anyone else playing Persona 5? It's been a long time since I've played a real JRPG (I'm not counting FFXV), but I love this game.  I'm roughly 30 hours in and I've barely scratched the surface.

Great characters, interesting story, and one of the best soundtracks in years.

On this day 20 years ago in 1997, Chess pro Gary Gasparov was defeated by IBM's A.I., Deep Blue in a Chess match.

Buying Refurbished Systems

I'm finally about to pull the trigger on an xbox 0ne.
What is your stance on buying refurbished systems?
