@  Goldenheart : (03 July 2016 - 03:15 PM) A: Yes they do... and a 5th of July, and a 6th of July... :-P
@  Goldenheart : (05 July 2016 - 12:55 AM) Hope everyone had a good 4th!
@  d2_s : (09 July 2016 - 12:07 AM) Looks like you answered your own question GH and correctly too :)
@  d2_s : (09 July 2016 - 12:07 AM) Hope you and everyone else had a good 4th as well.
@  colonel_j2020 : (09 July 2016 - 07:39 AM) I had my first 4th of July in the USA this year although I was working for 16hrs that day.....I'm from Canada, Eh.  Hope all enjoyed.
@  TonyDP : (10 July 2016 - 04:23 PM) I picked up Quantum Break last week as it was on sale for $28 on Amazon. Just finished it and I thought it was a good game with an interesting story, good combat and unique powers. Even the live action TV show segments were interesting. Remedy always makes games with interesting stories and this was no exception.
@  d2_s : (12 July 2016 - 05:58 AM) I thought the story in Quantum Break was very good andits best feature. The use of good recognisable actors didn't hurt it either.
@  Brandino : (14 July 2016 - 11:52 PM) Anyone getting the new mini NES?
@  colonel_j2020 : (15 July 2016 - 04:29 PM) The mini NES looks very cool.  I might get one because...idk...because.
@  Goldenheart : (16 July 2016 - 09:08 PM) I considered it when I somehow thought it was $30. It would look cool, & the ability to play actual NES games is cooler still, but then I realized I have the ROMS & never play them, so... I'll pass. Very cool tho
@  Goldenheart : (16 July 2016 - 09:09 PM) Would be even more classic if it had component out also, but I doubt it will. (HDMI is all that was mentioned.)
@  TonyDP : (16 July 2016 - 09:37 PM) Zero interest in the Mini NES; I've never been into retro-gaming and never cared for those old Nintendo 8 bit games. Heresy, I know.
@  d2_s : (20 July 2016 - 05:39 AM) Same. As cool as a gadget as it is, most 8-bit NES games are too retro for me.
@  Goldenheart : (20 July 2016 - 06:40 PM) *I meant "composite out". Sheesh! Who names a standard with the 1st FIVE letters the same as another standard??? Anyway, NES min also has saves states, which is awesome. I wonder if Sega will follow suit some day with a Genesis mini, or if Nintendo managed a patent on the whole concept
@  SpaceInsomniac : (21 July 2016 - 06:00 AM) Free to play MMORPG Neverwinter recently launched on the PS4.  Anyone else playing it?  It's pretty fun.
@  Goldenheart : (21 July 2016 - 06:41 AM) Oh, geeze. Sega already did this, but their Genesis thing looks nothing like a Genesis. It's just a round lump of plastic. No wonder I didn't remember it exists. I have seen it in the past. It even has a slot for cartridges, which I would say is about the only thing they got right about it.
@  ermac666 : (23 July 2016 - 12:30 AM) LOL, this pokemon go craze is getting out of hand. People flodding the streets and obscuring traffic. The gamne is so popular that it made nintendo a lot of money, their stocks rise, and they are now more valuable than sony just like that.
@  ermac666 : (23 July 2016 - 12:30 AM) flooding I meant
@  d2_s : (23 July 2016 - 07:22 PM) Their stocks will return to more normal levels soon enough. While we're on the subject of Pokemon Go: http://i.giphy.com/R0Jf8BNCgs5Es.gif
@  d2_s : (25 July 2016 - 12:45 AM) @Space how does neverwinter run on ps4? It could be a slideshow at times on xbone. Even though my PC would carve it up, I'd prefer to kick back with a controller so long as the performance is decent.

My main concern is devs prioritising resolution along with bells and whistles over frame rates. Neo and Scorpio should be capable of doing really nice games at around 1440p with solid frame rates. I'm just not confident that will happen - old habits die hard.

I hear you GH. Fortunately, it looks like some impact will be able to be made due to the political instability within China at present. Xi Jinping (the current CCP leader) is purging his political enemies in the form of the so called anti-corruption campaign he's been waging in recent years. The positive by-product of this is that his political enemies happen to be the previous leadership lead...

It seems the price of the normal Xbox ones have dropped at least $20. As low as $280 now, $300 for the 1TB version. Both come with a game.

Sorry Space, saw your PSN message. Been too busy. Hope you and Karmaslave had fun!

I suspect a big part of why MS and Sony have gone this route is due to the expense issue you mentioned above. Afterall, they are both customers of AMD and they must have been made aware well ahead of time if AMD upgrading its processes etc. I'm sure this was on the cards all along.

Good point, but I'm definitely talking about blur that's not present when viewed on my CRT HDTV. After a few years of gaming on my LCD HDTV & then going back to my CRT, everything just "popped" and looked more real cuz it stayed sharp even when things moved. Funny how it took so long to notice the opposite when I 1st made the switch to LCD.From what I've read about plasm...

I just started playing the new blood & wine DLC. It is a nice change of pace, has some new lighting to give that southern europe vibe and the environments are a lot more colorful and richer than the standard game. I heard that this DLC is a pretty big DLC, and could be longer than most full fledged games, which is nice. Took me a while to get used to the witcher 3's gameplay mechanics and upgra...

This isn't what you're talking about, but there is also a version of Cards Against Humanity that can be played via www.airconsole.com. Basically your browser is the game console, and your smartphones/tablets are the controllers. It is stupid slick, and they have a few other fun games you can play. On your computer/smarttv/console you can go to the site in your browser, then it generates a code...

The wife and I went to see "The Nice Guys" last week. I really enjoyed that movie! There was such a broad range of comedy as well as a fun setting and plot.

I am on my 2nd playthrough. Now that I am used to the story and know what to expect, I am doing more exploration, treasure hunting for trophies and just taking my time to play it. There are a lot of awesome environmental details that I missed during my first play through because I was too concerned about advancing the story and fights. Naughty dog went all out with this game man. Even on my 2nd...
