  1. Bowser's gonna destroy your sorry ass... in a board game.

  2. A few months ago my PS3 started to get wonky, shutting off at random. I put it up because I thought that the issue was that the power socket was loose and was waiting for the tools to try and fix it. Yesterday however I tried to run it to see how it was doing and it now refuses to turn on at all, which indicates that I was wrong and something in the thing blew. So my PS3 is kil.

       Now used consoles are always a crapshoot so I figured that I'd strike out sometime, so I'm not horribly upset. Now that I know that PS3's have mandatory installs I now know and I'll pass this advice along for anyone looking to get one: don't get the 12GB model like I did, or else you'll only be able to play like two or three games at a time.

      That sucks. It's gonna suck if/when my PS3 dies since I have a bunch of PS1 games on it I still need to play and it's the only way I can play Scott Pilgrim.

      Oof, sucks to hear that. I've had a couple issues with one of my old PS3s (the disc drive just refuses to recognise any game discs lately) and it seems like we may have to put it away for good. Shame really, since it'd been used by the whole family for the past decade or so.

      I've got a newer, 500GB model now though. It was either that or a 12GB, but like you've said, the latter barely holds anything on it.

       @SeanYeah, that really would suck. Incidentally I bought my PS3 with the purpose of playing PS1 games in HD, of course I bought games for it still. Thankfully all I had on the thing were save files (When it comes to PS1 games I have them all on disc. For as nice as playing them in HD is, playing them on a CRT with the PS2's component is just as good.).

  3. OOT speedruns in the 2010's "we need to do all these precise maneuvers to trick the game into helping us go fast".

  4. From today onwards, Starway City is now SSMB.

  5. Click on this, don't look at the title and see what it is, give it a minute to see if you recognize it. I found this on complete accident and had a pretty good laugh when I realized what it was:


    EDIT: How about now?

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I recognise it as a Video Not Available error screen.

      The best thing is that it really feels as one of their authorial songs


      Sounds like the Titanic had a battle with an ice giant Battleship-style


  6. Look at that. Bethesda decided to start 2020 by actually doing a good, patching the recent DOOM 1 & 2 ports and making them good now.


  7. Well at least Nintendo will never have need to make a Fire Emblem fighting game.

    1. Strickerx5


      Tbf, Nintendo rarely makes any other fighting games in general.

      Off the top of my head, the only two I can actually remember coming out in the past decade and a half (not including smash of course) were Pokken and Arms (lol).

  8. I beat Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order today. While I'm not into Soulslike games I liked it enough. It is one of those games where you spend the first few hours getting your butt handed to you, then when you get good moves and thing start getting good the game's suddenly over. I got it for Christmas, but if I had to reccomend it I would. Just not for $60, wait for a price drop. Then buy it used because EA doesn't need any of your money, no matter what they want you to think.

  9. I'm doing some fishing in Minecraft right now on a pier I built, with a roof and fencing on the sides to keep the Phantoms out, when a Pilligar raiding party strolls up. Keep in mind this is a pier that's basically a tunnel, and they can only go around the ocean side to shoot me since I walked off the beach to keep Drowned from sneaking up. Point is, watching a bunch of gray, big nosed armored men toting crossbows all swimming in a conga line to try to kill me is the funniest thing I've seen all year.

      I don't like illusions.

      They're fake, rough, and everywhere.

  11. Disney should just buy Dragon Ball so that Trunks can become the Disney princess he always wanted to be.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Technically, they have the distribution rights internationally for the movies - 20th Century distributed BoG, RF and Broly. 

    2. Strickerx5


      Isn't Funi also mostly owned by Sony? Hell, if this Spider-Man shit does ever go too far south, dubbed DB might be collateral damage if/ when Disney just buys out Sony.

  12. Been playing Slay the Spire, which is really good and you should check it out (Especially if you have Game Pass). On my last run I decided to build a hyper offensive glass cannon style deck with the Ironclad and got to the Act III boss. Took him down to 1 hp with his next attack dealing 22, and I had 22 hp. I think "well dammit, so close and yet so far". Then to twist the knife further, the boss kills himself and then resurrects to full hp, finishing me off next turn. Just... really game?

  13. I got SW Jedi: Fallen Order for Christmas and I've been liking it so far, but I noticed something. EA, did you really have to incorporate your logo into the game's own? Normally I'd be amazed, but that's just such an EA move that it crosses over from pretentious into being pathetic.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      It's not that surprising, they did it for Battlefront 1/2 as well. The technical title to both IIRC is EA's Star Wars Battlefront(2)

      It could always be worse.


  14. Looks like a bit of Sonic Movie footage leaked. 

  15. You know what really annoys me about Shadow the Hedgehog(the game)? The gun he uses in the cover is nowhere to be found in game. 

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      That's what bothers you? What bothers me more is the fact Shadow cocks an assault rifle like a shotgun [in the opening]. That doesn't make any sense!

    2. Harkofthewaa


      Ah ah ah, that's no assault rifle, that's a SMG. With his back to the Moons good side. And then he drives a chopper into a Black Oak, with the bike exploding like an atomic bomb and Shadow flying 100 feet into the air. That game makes no sense at all.

  16. So I started playing Jedi Fallen Order and well... 

    I got to the point where you fight the Sith Lady for the first time, and my first instinct was to grab my phone and start blasting Through the Fire. Truly the Sonic series has infected my soul down to its core.


  17. Alright, two things: Screw Pokemon. Seriously, I was trying to catch a Smeargle while in a Nuzlocke and Sleep Powder missed 8 times in a row! It copied my Vine Whip so it was doing scratch damage but still, come on man. Also, pen playing Sonic 2 lately and got reminded that the Special Stages are absolute bullshit if you play as Sonic and Tails. They raise the ring quotas, probably because they expect you to have a friend helping, but on your own you can barely scrape enough rings by while dummy AI Tails has such a bad delay on his movements that he keeps bumping into crap, distracting you and throwing your ring counter off. Anyways, Merry Christmas guys.


  18. Sonic and the Revenge of the Sith: a Storybook game. "Shadow, you were the chosen one, you were supposed to destroy Eggman, not join him!"

    1. Solister


      "It's over Shadow, I've the High Ground"

      "Shadow, did you ever heard the tragedy of Darth Infinite, the wise?"

      "I am not weak, Unlimited Powah..."

    2. Tarnish


      @Solister I'd rather have "It's over Shadow! I've the dash pad!"

  19. So I was bored tonight and was looking around on the Xbox Store for shits and giggles (mostly to admire the four and a half rows of miscellaneous Sims 4 crap). Well right now they have the obvious Christmas sale going on, but while looking at stuff I couldn't help but notice something. Fallout 4 GOTY (with the base game and all the DLC) is $17.99. The Fallout 4 season pass(just the DLC on its own) is... $19.99. It Just Works

  20. I was downloading the Batman Arkham Asylum remaster on my Xbox One via Game Pass (because for some dumb reason the original isn't BC... Borderlands 1 and 2 are both BC even though they both have remasters, so what gives?). I wanted to watch some stuff on YouTube while I got a bite to eat so I went to pause... and hit cancel by accident. While I was at 16/29 GB through. Fuk. Sigh... time to dust off my 360.

    1. Strickerx5


      Should give Origins a go, given the time of year lol

  21. Segasonic the Hedgehog but instead of a trackball you use the Kinect and have to wave your hand around in motions mimicking the trackball.

      Are you trying to hurt us

  22. You know, I was watching BSC's commentary on Sonic and the Secret Rings and I couldn't help but notice this banger. I myself haven't gotten far enough into the game to hear it (because I care about my well being) but yeah. This goes on my favorites list.

  23. Today I finally got around to getting all of the achievements  in Sonic Mania. Had to do an entire playthrough with Tails just to get Collect Them All because I didn't have a save file on hand for him.

  24. Screenshot_20191208-235903_Chrome.thumb.jpg.62bde95a06b754cdc0b0cf40904d5524.jpg

    This would be a fun alternative to My Emmerdoods.

  25. I got a new, bigger TV for Christmas this year. This thing is weird... most HDTVs either accept 240p input or don't. This thing takes any 240p signal it gets and upscales it to 480i. It's weird, but at least I can play PS1 and N64 games on the thing.

    1. Tornado


      It's (or at least was) actually more common for TVs to just force signals to 480i than it is to just not accept them. That's actually what the shitter HDMI scalars you see on Amazon and Ebay do too.



      It's AV equipment (like HT systems or receivers) that have serious trouble with 240p not being accepted.
