Steelo. You affected by the earthquake at all?



Pfft, he caused the earthquake. Slapping his mammoth wang on the ground.

Mario vs Rabbids fanbase, I am calling out for your aid!



My son wants to ask the game for his birthday, but I fear it's a bit too advanced for a kid who's just turning 6.  And doesn't comprehend English. How smooth is the learning curve? Does the game rely heavily ob dtext and menus?  How about the humour, are there a lot of jojes or mainly visial gags?

Might be a little tough for him.  There is a lot of text but just story related, mostly. Once he figures out the controls, then he may be set.  My son is eight and has breezed through most of it.  I do help him from time to time, especially on the last world, but he’s figured out good strategies by himself.  There is an easy mode but all it does is make your hp one and a half times what it normally is.

No. I've been off the walker since September 2nd. I used a cane for a couple weeks, now I'm walking ok without it; i have a bit of a limp still.

Good for you.  You’ve seem to have come pretty far in a short period of time.  I just started with a cane last week and can walk a few steps without.  I’ll probably still use it a little when I go back to work on October 2.

Completed the other half of the Project Octopath Traveler. Day one purchase. I was sick yesterday and yet playing the demo made me feel awesome. I didn't want to stop playing. Love the battle system, voice acting is great. Philips VA is Dick Van Dyke Mary Poppins bad it's hilarious. Love the battle system. Feels like an awesome SNES game.

Are the controls for the fights mapped to buttons, like is 'shoot' always A, or is it heavily menu based?  If it's all directly mapped to buttons he'll be able to just memorize it.  How deep does the combat go and do you need to dabble in customiation, or can he get through without worrying about stuff like stat multipliers and perk systems?  And how clear is it what does what?  If he an just scroll through an inventory with images of the items and a big number indicating what is strongest, he should do fine.

You use the Rz and Lz to select your actions, movement, shooting, shields, power ups, etc.  you use r and l to select which character.  You’ll receive coins and orbs.  The coins are for buying stronger primary and secondary weapons.  Some can have bonuses like fire or honey, which keeps an opponent from moving.  It’s pretty obvious what damage your weapon will do

So you scroll through your possible actions? Are they represented by text or icons?

I got Dolphin running on my PC. Played some Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Eternal Darkness, and Metroid Prime in 1080p with an Xbox One Elite controller. Yeah...unless these games get straight up remakes, I don't think I really need remasters. This more than covers that. LOL

Tried to get some N64 and Saturn emu's running, but they were giving me issues. Going to have to work out the kinks there.

But the Snes, GBA, and Genesis emu's are running like a dream....full screen, 1080p and again with Xbox One elite controls. IDK why I never really tried doing this before...it sure as hell beats hooking up old ass consoles and tiny screen handhelds. Magical.

Resident Evil 7!  That’s what I’ve played this weekend, a real return to its horror roots.  It’s suspenseful, has great visuals and tells a creepy story.  The only thing I don’t really care for is the combat.  A lot of times I feel as though I’m watching an interactive movie rather than really playing.

I DLed Goof Troop on the Snes yesterday. Only because I saw it was made by Shinji Mikami. LOL

He goes from Goof Troop in 1993, to Resident Evil in 1996. Who makes that kind of jump these days?

Also, going back and looking up all the old Snes stuff I never realized how incredible the system's first year software was. I mean really unfair to the competition. Fucking insane...I'm talking tons and tons of all time greats in it's launch year. The system pretty much caught up to the Genesis library in that one goddamn year! The only other system that I can think of in the same league, is the PS2 in 2001. But I don't even think PS2 quite matches it.

David Jaffe went from Mickey Mania to Twisted Metal

Though it wasn't modern so I can't think of anyone that made that jump recently.

Yeah, the SNES was such a great system with an amazing library of games that still stand the test of time.

It really does. It was the Playstation of the 2d era. Makes me horny.

I also finally got the N64 emulator running. I had to get a different one, the first one I tried was just bizarre. This one works instantly and it's glorious. I played Goldeneye and Castlevania Legacy of Darkness in 1080p with some kind of built in graphics buffer enabled...what a difference. Basically EXACTLY  like getting remastered versions on a modern console. Again the Xbox controls work like a charm, perfectly mapped. Goldneye has camera controls on the right stick like a proper FPS. LOL

This is going to make me go a a retro kick.

Which N64 Emulator are you using, Edge? I've been wanting to play Pilotwings 64 for ages. I'd buy it on VC, but Nintendo doesn't seem to want release it.
