@  d2_s : (13 January 2018 - 04:41 AM) Belated Happy New Year HDTVArcaders!
@  d2_s : (13 January 2018 - 04:48 AM) @B Whether the Switch! is worth it depends on how into Portable gaming you are and how important Nintendo’s IPs are to you IMHO. As novel as it is to have games like Doom or Skyrim on a handheld device, for someone like me-who rarely plays portable-it’s not worth it when those games are better on other platforms. I’d personally wait until the library is more fleshed out and you can get a better price. Only reason I got mine somearly was for Zedla.
@  ermac666 : (27 January 2018 - 11:33 PM) Shadow of the  Colossus remake looks stunning. It's like a brand new game! Just saw the digital foundry ps4 pro first look. I was like, "wow!!!!!". I wasn't expecting it to look that good and different.
@  ermac666 : (27 January 2018 - 11:33 PM) Go check it out guys
@  Brandino : (29 January 2018 - 12:19 AM) What would be awesome is a sequel to SOC... complete with levels and a whole lot more then only the big boss fights.
@  kyle_5_16 : (29 January 2018 - 03:23 PM) that does look pretty legit
@  kyle_5_16 : (29 January 2018 - 03:24 PM) Has anyone been playing the Sea of Thieves beta?
@  TonyDP : (29 January 2018 - 05:36 PM) I've been playing Sea of Thieves. It's fun and shows promise but I think they need more for the final product. I've done a few solo adventures but the game is most fun with 4 players.
@  kyle_5_16 : (29 January 2018 - 05:52 PM) Yeah, I played a couple hours duo with my brother, then another 4-6 as a full 4 man team. The full crew is more fun for sure. I agree the beta is light on content, a lot of just go dig up a chest quests so far, they need a lot more than that for the final game but my fingers are crossed. I'm also hoping for some sort of missions that would require cooperation with other crews, like having to go take down an NPC ship that is difficult alone or something. I dunno, I guess we'll see. So far the other crews have just been either attacking on site or running away, a reason to cooperate would be cool.
@  colonel_j2020 : (29 January 2018 - 06:26 PM) I too have played some of sea of theives beta.  For some reason I can't connect to a group game. No error messages or windows firewall stuff pops up.  I think it would be good with a group of friends though.  I feel they will need to add more content as Tony and Kyle suggested to keep it fresh.
@  d2_s : (30 January 2018 - 07:07 AM) The best thung about Sea of Thieves (all all MS 1st party games for that matter) is that I get it day one with my Gamepass subscription. Don’t think I would have bought it otherwise, seems a but niche to me.
@  d2_s : (30 January 2018 - 07:08 AM) Fat thumbs + iPad once again make me look like an illiterate bastard.
@  TonyDP : (30 January 2018 - 08:06 AM) I'm debating cancelling my pre-order and going the Gamepass route as well. Not wild about another monthly subscription but if I just get 2 or 3 games a year it will pretty much pay for itself.
@  Brandino : (30 January 2018 - 08:17 PM) I would think that randomly generated islands/caves/castles or whatever in Sea Of Thieves would make the game much more enticing.   I can't imagine sailing and merely attacking a few skeletons as fun.  The sailing around in Wind Waker was the worst part of that game... the interesting islands is what made it fun.
@  TonyDP : (31 January 2018 - 06:01 PM) The sailing mechanics are well done. You need to use the map and compass to figure out where to go and manage the length and direction of the sails; I found it one of the coolest parts of the beta quite honestly.
@  d2_s : (02 February 2018 - 03:39 AM) @Tony I did just that. Cancelled my preorder and went the gamepass route.
@  kyle_5_16 : (05 February 2018 - 05:14 PM) considering all first party titles are going gamepass now I think that makes it a pretty decent deal for sure.
@  colonel_j2020 : (09 February 2018 - 08:24 PM) I have a feeling I will use gamepass to play Sea of Thieves.  Paying for that for a month seems a good way to play games like that.
@  Brandino : (17 February 2018 - 02:34 AM) I bought a Switch.... very slick piece of hardware and easy to bring to work to play multiplayer mario kart
@  d2_s : (17 February 2018 - 11:54 PM) The switch is awesome. I just need Nintendo to port over all my favourite WiiU games so I can be rid of it.

I just learned about XP Mode for Windows 7 Professional. Anyone know much about it? There's remarkably little detailed information about it online. It seems to be running a virtual version of XP, but I've read little indications that it works better and is more compatible than just running a standard virtual desktop, but I've also read the opposite.Here's what I've read:It's j...

Agreed. I'm normally for no gov't intervention, but this is flat out gambling for children. Ideally, the parents & market would correct for it, but I'm guessing the parents are unaware of it, so the correction isn't happening. I also believe in telling people what they get for their money just as a basic principle, which also doesn't happen with loot boxes. So, yeah the whole "Give me som...

I've joined the club. 2 Christmases ago, I told my wife not to get my any games cuz it'll just tick me off that I have even more stuff I don't have time to play. Last Christmas, she gave birth to our 1st kid on the 18th, so definitely no time now. I just finished off one time eater, (college) just in time to get another.

I used to work with a guy who loved Farming Simulator a couple years ago. He had a 3D HDTV & was not at all the farming type. I didn't get it, but he loved to go on and on about how much he made, and what tractors he bought. He'd even leave his PS3 on all day just to rack up the money from his wind farm. Once they were in place, it was constant income. I guess it has some appeal.

I agree that Fortnite is much more polished but the shooting is very arcadey but it is fun to be able to build a shelter so both have their benefits. Some of the jank in PUBG is endearing(dumb vehicle physics) and some is terrible(bad netcode - getting killed when around a corner). I like both for different reasons.

I bought the switch... my 5 year old is interested after showing the videos.... something I think grandma can buy for her since I can't justify spending so much on cardboard

I only ever played Spyro 1 but really enjoyed it. Not sure if I would pick this up or not honestly considering most of my time is eaten up playing multiplayer these days.

Nice. Hope it’s a better effort than the last gen collection.
