So I got a super sweet cheap deal on a 3DS XL. This is not the "New" model. Feels good to own one of these. I may actually start playing Pokemon. Maybe. Smile

I bought my wife a new 3DS XL for her birthday in October. Every time she plays it I get super jealous, because I just have the original 3DS... which works totally fine... the bigger screen is so nice though! You'll have a really awesome backlog of games to go through. She's been playing through all of my old DS and 3DS games lately. So much good stuff! Enjoy, sir!

Bleh, after hearing about Bioware stopping their Mass Effect Andromeda patches I'm so happy I didn't buy the game. Hate what my favorite developer has become, but between that and what their new IP sounds like, I get the feeling that developer is dead to me.

Apparently Alan Wake is getting removed from digital storefronts because of some music licensing issues. Might come back eventually but if you're interested, now is the time to check it out. It's $3 on Steam until it disappears in a few days.

I always hate when this happens. A similar thing happened to Re-volt on GOG and I still regret not picking it up while it was available.

I'm always tired.  My feet have been bothering me at work so when I get home and want to play games at night I'm exhausted and my legs ache, so when I try to play Final Fantasy IX I just get really tired and nod off like a heroin addict.  It doesn't help that the music is so damn soothing, it's like a lullaby which doesn't help at all. I can only seem to stay awake during Destiny 2 and FIFA because you're constantly doing something.  

I'm not looking for answers, just crying like a bitch.  It sucks.

Has anyone here bought a PS4 Pro? Just curious. I have very mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I think we've reached a point in graphics technology where most games are like little PC's at this point anyway. But on the other hand having it so you have to buy the WHOLE console instead of a discounted upgrade seems odd to me.

I think we've spoken about it in the past before, just curious to see if people's opinions have changed or where you all stand.

4K on affordable consoles isn't a very realistic proposition and I'm really annoyed by this continued push for more power when the results are often so small, especially mid-generation.

That said, reading up a bit on some of the tricks it uses to squeeze out a higher resolution gave me some respect for it, even if it's not *really* 4K in many games. It can sort of "fake" higher resolutions with some well-hidden compromises. Only select, really new PC games do the things the pro does as far as I know.

I've been watching a play through of Sonic Forces...what the actual hell am I watching? Which fan fiction writer got this job?!

It's very entertaining, maybe not for the right reasons. But hearing a bunch of animals talk about destroying munitions factories for Eggman's war effort is super funny.

That last part kind of excites me actually because it reminds me of the Sonic SATAM cartoon as well as the premise in general, but I don't have enough faith in Sonic Team to make a well written story out of it. Especially when they're still putting Silver the Hedgehog into the story.

I never understood why Sonic was a series that necessitated a story above Mario-level.

Because Sonic had the Archie comics and the SATAM cartoon in the 90's which were much better than they had any right to be while Mario had the Mario Super Show and the SMB Movie which were terrible. And I say this as someone who loves the SMB movie. But Sonic has fans who enjoy his stories as a huge selling point, though IMO, only two game stories that rose above mediocrity was Adventure 1 which was decent and Battle which was surprisingly really good.

Plus, there is a niche for kid friendly games which still have story as a major role. Pokemon is the most story heavy outside there, so there is a hole to fill for platformers with the Jak/Ratchet/Sly levels of storytelling.
