    I think that was because the jump from PS2 to PS3 was a big one, especially if you had a HDTV back when the PS3 was released. I don't think the jump from PS3 to PS4 is nearly as big as going from PS2 to PS3 was. PS2 games look a lot worse on HDTVs. The PS2 was built for old school CRT tvs.

    I am lol. This past weekend I binged on it. I even had some dreams about it haha.

    I've never played it until about a week ago. I'm about 30 hours into it. It's like Oblivion/Skyrim with a Book of Eli theme to it.

    Is Fallout New Vegas an expansion to Fallout 3 or a stand alone game? Since Fallout 4 is the new game coming out, I was wondering why Fallout New Vegas wasn't Fallout 4 because I'm pretty sure New Vegas came out after Fallout 3.

    I'm just starting Fallout 3 for the first time. I would probably go with that one first since it's the first 3D intro to the series. Fallout 1 & 2 are 2D. I would make sure you turn off all of the auto-saving in the options, like save on wait, save on travel, etc....because keeping them on can lead to the game locking up. I've been playing for about 10 hours and had just one freeze so far. I thought about starting over because I'm not sure if I like the skills I put points in.

    My biggest issue with Bethesda is their games tend to be extremely buggy and they take forever to fix it, and a lot of times they never fix some bugs.

    There's a rumor floating around that Dark Souls 3 will be announced at E3. http://www.vg247.com/2015/06/02/source-miyazakis-dark-souls-3-ready-for-e3-announcement/

    I'm kind of glad this was a rumor. I plan on getting a PS4 sometime in the future. Silent Hills was the one game that would motivate me to immediately upgrade to the current generation console. If Xbox would've gotten Silent Hills as an exclusive, it would make me 2nd guess about going with the ps4.

    You guys talked me into getting Fallout 3. I ordered the vanilla version for ps3. I was going to get the GOTY edition but I read that it introduces a ton of bugs that forces hard resets on your ps3. I might pick up the GOTY edition on steam whenever it's on sale. That's how I played Witcher 2. I invested in a sign build, using igni as my primary attack. I never bothered with the parry/counter attack. However, I'm not sure how combat is in the Witcher 3 compared to Witcher 2.

    I played Mass Effect 1 also. While Mass Effect had a good chunk of dialogue, it also had a lot of action too which helped balance everything out.

    I do think the Witcher series is too wordy and has too many cut-scenes, but that's just my opinion. Others might like that. Don't get me wrong. I love to read. I read books all the time. I recently finished the GoT books and Stephen King's "The Stand", which was 1400 pages. It's just that with video games, I enjoy playing them more than reading them. I love Skyrim and Oblivion because while there is a little bit of listening and reading with the NPCs, the dialogue and story is usually concise and not bloviated. The story gets to the point fast, then you spend most of the time dungeon crawling and exploring. I felt the Witcher series spent too much time with cut-scenes and dialogue, and not enough emphasis on dungeon crawling. Again, that's just a personal preference.

    I do have issues with the first two Witcher games. There was a huge difference in combat between 1 and 2, but they were still both clunky. I also thought the Witcher 1 & 2 were way too story driven, to the point where there seemed to be more listening to dialogue than there was action and exploring. There were times I spent an hour or two just running back and forth listening to NPCs talk. I also thought the quest tracker in those games weren't always optimized. Some quests would still be active, but you couldn't complete them until you did some other random quest. It was confusing.

    Yeah, I like good graphics, but it isn't the #1 thing for me. Game play is my #1 thing. I've been playing Oblivion and even though the graphics are bit dated, I'm still having a lot of fun. I'm kind of getting in the mood to play some Red Dead Redemption again. Heck, I've been playing some old school Baldur's Gate too.

    For those looking forward to The Witcher 3, but never played the franchise before, Witcher 1 & 2 are on sale this weekend at steam. Witcher 1 is $1.49 and Witcher 2 is $2.99. So for the price of a burger, you can pick up two good games that will get you familiar with the franchise.

    I love games like Metroid. It's one of my favorite formulas for a game. I was thinking about re-buying Symphony of the Night at the PS Store. I don't understand why there aren't more modern 2d side scrolling, Metroid like games, with up to date graphics. I guess too many developers feel young people who never grew up playing games like that won't buy their games. I'll have to check out games like Metroid on steam.

    I wish I could play Diablo 3 on PC with a controller. That's one game where I prefer the console version over the PC version. I do have my PC hooked up to my TV, but it is easier for me to use a controller while sitting in my recliner than it is using a keyboard and mouse. It seems like all the games I play, it's 50/50 on whether they have controller support or not.

    No, it's coming out on the PS4 and Xbox One too.
  18. I didn't realize people outside of Mike Florio and UnWise Mike were still interested in this topic. Even Skip Bayless seems to have cooled off and still uses the word "Redskins" every time he talks about the team. It seems to me that this has lost a lot of steam.

    Yeah, with all the Souls games, there's a vague intro that gives you a brief overall theme, but there isn't any story driven progression in the game. The only story driven game I was into was The Last of Us. Other than that, I'm not a huge fan of listening to a ton of dialogue and such, especially if it overrides game play. I'd just rather watch a movie if I'm in the mood to listen to a ton dialogue.

    Another thing I love about the Souls games is that they aren't story driven games. You can play a few hours here and there, then log out at a bonfire and come back to it a few weeks later and pick it up right where you left off, because there isn't a complex story to keep up with. I find the story driven games (which to be honest, I'm not a huge fan of), are more difficult to come back to after taking a lengthy break, because a lot of times I have trouble remembering the fine details of the story if I haven't played in a while.

    Don't let the difficulty scare you off. I almost didn't give them a chance because of that, but I finally got around to getting the games. I'm so glad I did and the Souls games are some of my favorite games that I've ever played, and I've played video games since the Atari 2600. I don't like hectic button mashing games like I used to when I was younger, but the Souls games aren't a "mash your buttons as fast as you can" series. The pace is kind of slow, so you aren't physically wearing out your thumbs and fingers. I've beaten all three Souls games on the PS3, Demon Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls 2, so it definitely isn't mission impossible to do so. Out of those three games, Dark Souls 1 is my favorite. It's a masterpiece. Dark Souls 2 is like a hybrid of Dark Souls 1 and Demon Souls. It's an excellent game, but I like the first one better. I heard that Bloodborne has increased the pace of the game play and controls compared to the Souls games. I'm not sure how I feel about that because I loved the pace of combat in the Souls games.

    Constantly hiring the wrong people is a fatal flaw that leads to disaster.

  25. Yeah, I watched the whole season of TURN. I wanted to like it because I love movies and shows with historical themes, but even towards the last episode, the only character who had some sort of personality was the British officer Lt. Simcoe. The the rest of the cast was so bland and boring. I even forgot their names half the time. Also, the opening theme to the show TURN is the worst musical score for a TV show I've ever heard. I agree about Hell on Wheels. I love that show.
