Re: [The video game thread]

Just to add to my backlog of games I never have time to play ( :laugh: ) I picked up WWE 2K18 Deluxe on the Switch. It doesn't perform very well (30 FPS Max) but it is pretty fun to play here and there in singles matches, and has a really good roster of classics and somewhat current wrestlers. I hav...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Yeah, it's like a skiff, isn't it? Is that the right word? I don't know if that's the right word. I mean the boat with the big extensions on either side and another one down into the water. I wanna call it a space-skiff, but that may not be right. But yeah, there's something fun about leaning into ...

Re: [The video game thread]

Sale for May the Fourth, so I picked up Super Star Wars on PS4. Haven't played it yet, but I have played it several times on the SNES. :up: Also picked up NBA 2K21 on Switch since it's cheap. Every year I tell myself I don't need the new 2K game, and every year it goes on deep discount towards the e...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I recently went through a major overhaul of my collections, mostly due to space, but also partly due to time to enjoy them. This meant that Transformers were also included, so I forced myself to sort them into 'buckets'. This project was much more difficult than I thought, since it really meant givi...

Re: [The video game thread]

Quite a bit of gaming stuff over the last weeks/months: For the N64, I tried to help out my display by getting a Retrotink 2X Mini . It helps the N64 on HDTV's significantly (though it doesn't make them HD like magic or anything) and it's cheaper and (potentially) more useful than the Eon Super 64. ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

SS72 Starscream (from the Bumblebee movie): I liked the Blitwing figure and expected this to be very similar, but it really wasn't. It's fun in its own right and looks pretty nifty too. The alt mode reminds me of the T-16 Skyhopper Luke's playing with in ANH... it's very swooshable . Soundwave w/ R...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Got my first shot of the Moderna vaccine yesterday! Woohoo! Looking forward to getting the other in a few weeks. The drive-thru system I was sent to was streamlined and fast. I figured I wouldn't be eligible to get a vaccine anytime soon, but the phases changed a bit where I live and qualified by wo...

Re: [The video game thread]

[/quote] COTW! I should play that again. I don't have any of the expansions but I could crawl around in the underbrush for awhile. You should! It's not a game for everyone, but for whatever reason it is right up my alley with interest & the gameplay. "I'll play for 20 minutes" typically turns into a...

Where would you find this? I'm morbidly curious about how many hours I wasted in 2020.
I believe the link is: wrapup.playstation.com

Log in with your PSN account and it should provide the info you need.

Re: [The video game thread]

Just as I wrapped up my quest for all Gold/Diamond animals in COTW, a new map was released ( Te Awaroa National Park ). Downloaded it yesterday and the first animal I harvested was a Gold level Feral Goat! What a way to start! Now there's only a couple Golds left for me to get on that map. Just befo...

Re: [The video game thread]

Reached a personal goal in theHunter: Call of the Wild, which was to get a Gold level of every animal in the game (some animals are on multiple maps, so I just stuck with the animals themselves). The last was a troublesome coyote, but I stumbled across one while hunting whitetail deer. Now I'll be l...

Re: [The video game thread]

Sony was nice enough to put together an individualized 'year-in-review' thing for users, so I took a peek at what I did on my PS4 over 2020. I had already known that I didn't play much of anything besides theHunter: Call of the Wild this year. It was simply too much fun, so much stuff to do, and a l...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

About a week or so ago I found SS86 Jazz at Walmart. Passed on Kup and Blurr, since I don't have any interest in those two. But Jazz is pretty great. Very clean aesthetic (as it should be for the cartoon) but I think it has enough panel detail to work in a Classics collection. Even though I have the...

Re: [The video game thread]

I was impressed with a wireless 8bitdo controller for my TG16 Mini, so I went ahead and ordered ones for my SNES Mini (but bought the rainbow buttoned Super Famicom version) and my Genesis Mini. Both are well made and work exceptionally well, just like the TG16 one. I'll be picking up one for my NES...

Re: [The video game thread]

Have you ever finished that game? Yes, back when it was released on the Wii during the launch period. I was lucky in that I had gone to a KMart on release night and they did a raffle (not for $) for the Wii units. Got one of those and TP. Between that and Wii Sports I was busy for months. I don't r...

Re: [The video game thread]

I'm almost done replaying Twilight Princess . I started a run on that one last year (the HD version on the Wii U). Fun game, but you're right, the pacing can be awful. The beginning of the game is notoriously slow paced. I never finished my run this time around, since I thought I was close to done ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I mostly like the new Cyclonus except for the... cankles? Cankles. Haven't seen one yet, though. I noticed that today too. Chunky ankles, semi-tiny feet. Still stand well though, since the overall footprint is big. Went to Target yesterday to pick up a Blackarachnia I saw a few days ago. Simply to ...

Re: [The video game thread]

My TG16 Mini came in. I love it. There's just so much here I never played! I just finished New Adventure Island last night. Working on Neutopia as well (halfway through?). There are shmups galore on this thing, some good, some not so good. I think my faves are in the Star Soldier line. But there's a...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Cyclonus Found at Target while shopping with my family. Didn't expect to find any Kingdom stuff out just yet, but was pleasantly surprised. They had the whole first wave of all the size classes, and this is the sole one I was really interested in (though Warpath does look very nice). Except...

Re: [The video game thread]

Been playing random things over the last few weeks, as my attention span has been all over the map with Christmas stuff. Finished up the campaign and DLC campaign on Battlefront II (PS4) . Nothing special, but a fun mix of FPS and starship battles. I think this game has been sitting around on my sys...
