I originally used Dark Brotherhood armor until I found the rough leather armor and face masks of Skyrim.

Anyone take advantage of the Xbox summer sale? Bought WWE 2K16, Saints Row 2 and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell for $40.

I still got my old Pokemon Blue and Gold and I got Sliver and Red at the flea market last year so I don't need to risk getting fired or walking into an oncoming semi-truck for playing Pokemon Go. Razz

Meanwhile, Konami is still floating around with another Metal Gear Solid game. This is definitely a response to how they basically re-released Metal Gear Solid 3 as a pachinko machine which made a lot of their fans mad.

Nintendo's NES Returning With Mini Version, Includes These 30 Games

Quote :

In a surprise announcement today, Nintendo revealed that the NES--which was originally released in the 1980s--is returning to stores. This is not a joke.

The NES Classic Edition will launch on November 11 with 30 bundled games. As you can see in the image below, it's very, very small. Take a look:

The NES Classic Edition will cost $60. It plugs directly into your TV using an included HDMI cable. As for the games, there are 30 in all, including classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and Kirby's Adventure (full list below).

Nintendo also confirmed that each game has multiple suspend points, allowing players to pick up where they left off if they need to step away for any reason.

It also comes with an AC adapter. In the UK, Nintendo warns, "An AC adapter for the USB cable is required to play the system but is not included in the packaging."

Also included in the package is one NES controller, featuring a design modeled after the original NES pad. Some games support two players, and Nintendo will sell extra controllers for $10. Additionally, Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro controllers can be used.

What's more, the NES Classic Controller, when connected to a Wii Remote, can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on Wii U or Wii.

"We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo's original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place," Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said in a statement. "

NES Classic Edition Games:

Balloon Figh
Bubble Bobble

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest

SEGA Announces Two New Sonic the Hedgehog Games For 2017

Quote :

Coming Soon reports that SEGA held a 25th anniversary celebration at the San Diego Comic Con last night for Sonic the Hedgehog. They followed that up today with the reveal of two new games.

The first is Sonic Mania, which is a new 2D platform game with “nostalgic pixel-style art” and “core classic gameplay”. It will reimagine classic Zones and Acts from Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD and Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles. It will also feature all-new Acts, Zones and bosses. The game was developed by SEGA of America with PagodaWest Games, Christian Whitehead and Simon Thomley. It will be released digitally on the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC in Spring 2017.

Sonic Team Head Takashi Iizuka said: “Sonic Mania was born out of our fans’ love of the classic Sonic 2D platform games. This type of collaboration is a first for SEGA and we hope everyone will be both surprised and delighted by this title. Sonic Mania has been a passion project for the entire team and we look forward to sharing more details about it later this year. Having the game actually playable at the event itself tonight was testament to the dedication of the team behind it.”

The other game is a currently untitled creation from Sonic Team, who also developed Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. It will be released in retail and digital stores for Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo NX at Holiday 2017.

Sonic Pillar Chief Brand Officer and SVP of Sega of America Ivo Gerscovich said: “Today brought thousands of fans together from all over the world to get a look at all the facets of our beloved Sonic the Hedgehog from his foundation in video games to music, TV, mobile, toys, fashion and beyond. This is only the beginning for Sonic and we’re happy our fans were here to celebrate this exciting new direction.”

But wait, there’s more! SEGA also revealed that the mobile game Sonic Dash has been downloaded over 200 million times. There will be new in-game event that includes the Green Hill Zone and Classic Sonic as a playable character. It will last for a week, but once the classic content is unlocked, players can continue to use it after the event is over. The game is free to play with optional in-app purchases. It’s available on the App Store, Google Play, Amazon Underground, and Windows Phones.

Finally, SEGA announced that Sonic Boom, the animated series that airs in over 100 countries, was renewed for a second season. The next game in that franchise, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, will arrive on September 27 in the US and September 30 in Europe for the Nintendo 3DS.

i don't think Sonic translates very well to Lego....


on my own part, i more or less finished my Imperial-sided run on Skyrim--i honestly just wanted to see how that particular one ends up and i much prefer the changes to Whiterun from there as opposed to the Stormcloak line, though i'll be going back to my Stormcloak character eventually

in the time since, i've been playing Space Marine, and finally started a run on the highest difficulty, doing two in a row. after this run, i think i'll be getting back to Assassin's Creed, hopefully getting along to second runs on Rogue, Unity, and Syndicate after

'Xboy' Handheld Was Considered, Says Former XBOX Exec

Quote :

During the early days of Xbox, Microsoft considered competing in the portable space with a dedicated gaming handheld of its own, but ultimately scrapped the project.

Former Chief Xbox Officer Robbie Bach recently stopped by the IGN office and discussed the company's early plans for a handheld (often referred to as "Xboy") on the latest episode of IGN Unfiltered (airing next Tuesday), saying that while he doesn't remember it ever getting to the prototype stage, "there were definitely drawings."

In fact, plans for "Xboy" came up as a project "multiple times" at Microsoft, with Bach noting that "it wasn’t always called Xboy," though, the hypothetical handheld was always called "X something." While the company felt as though they needed to "play in that part of the ecosystem," he said the device never came to fruition "because we just couldn’t focus. We just did not have the bandwidth."

Fortunately for Microsoft, the decision to focus all its efforts on the console market worked in its favor, as smartphones soon took over the mobile scene. "For us it was a focus issue and as it turned out strategically it was a smart decision, but that’s somewhat accidental," Bach said.

In hindsight, the former Xbox boss believes he was proven correct in that "focusing on 360 was absolutely the right thing to do," but also "lucky" because smartphones took over that marketplace.

Microsoft almost called the Xbox 360 the "Xbox 3"

Quote :

While Microsoft ended up naming its second console Xbox 360, the company considered other options, including Xbox 3.

"Certainly Xbox 3 was actually on the list because, well, you’ve gotta catch up," former Chief Xbox Officer Robbie Bach said on the latest episode of IGN Unfiltered. "You don’t want to be Xbox 2 compared to PlayStation 3. We actually talked about that," he added.

"You don’t want to feel like you’re a generation behind, so why not skip?" he continued, noting that "Microsoft has a long history of skipping numbers," citing the jump from Windows 8 to Windows 10 as a prime example.

Sega Genesis Classic Edition announced

Quote :

Shipping in October (at least in the U.K.) and containing a whopping 80 games, the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Classic Game Console looks exactly like a shot fired over Nintendo's bow, a reminder of the classic console wars during which the companies found themselves in a constant state of one-upmanship. Yet SEGA's upcoming creation will more likely serve as a contrast to better underscore the value and merit of Nintendo's retro device.

Based on the descriptive text at U.K. retailer Smyths Toys' website, this "new" device is little more than the latest iteration of the Genesis clone consoles a Chinese manufacturer called At Games has been issuing in different formats for the past few years. Unfortunately, they're anything but a nostalgic home run.

In principle, these SEGA reissues should be much better than Nintendo's upcoming offering, including more built-on games and a functioning cartridge slot to allow players to use their original Genesis games. In practice, they're shoddy: Rather than incorporating original Genesis hardware — despite the cartridge slot — they run on mediocre emulators that don't offer full compatibility with cartridges. Inexplicably, they don't even offer save support for carts that include battery backup (so please enjoy completing Phantasy Star II in a single sitting). They also provide standard-definition video out via composite cables, the worst possible way to view games on modern TVs — assuming, that is, your TV isn't so modern that it no longer supports a composite signal. And the systems' sound quality calls into question the word "quality," with familiar tunes like Sonic's "Green Hill Zone" sounding more like the flatulent final expulsion of a dying robot. Meanwhile, Nintendo's Classic Mini: NES offers high-definition visuals over HDMI and is almost certain to support full game saves. While it doesn't offer any way to play games beyond the 30 announced titles, one questions the value of playing a vast library of badly rendered, ear-shattering, incompletely supported games. Is that really a superior experience to playing a handful of well-curated and nicely presented classics? (Spoilers: No.)

Oh, and it's probably worth mentioning that only half of the 80 included games are legitimate Genesis classics; the other 40 titles are cheap-looking shovelware with enticing names like "Cross the Road," "Snake," "Sudoku Quiz," and "Jack's Pea."

As a Metal Gear fan, I'm not against a game that concerns dealing with an alternate reality. The Metal Gear Universe is so full of ret-cons, what-ifs, and if-onlys, that quite frankly, it's one of those rare game series that was begging for such a thing to happen.

That being said, I do NOT like how Konami went about with the idea. They would have been better off making Metal Gear Solid 6 and have it concern The Boss and her involvement in WW2 or be a direct sequel to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain where you follow Venom Snake again.

I'm part of a big Metal Gear fan club on Facebook and most of the people there are furious and will not consider it a Metal Gear game.

So regarding that MGS game, as someone who isn't that big an MG fan, it looks pretty bad still. However (and correct me if I'm wrong, because it's possible something has come out since I was online earlier), I wonder if Kojima hasn't made a comment yet because he had some involvement in this. Not like he developed everything, or was a major player, given his exit from Konami, but if it was something he started and then he was let go and Konami decided to move it along without him. Would be funny to me if this happened, because then all the people that are furious would have to acknowledge Kojima had something to do with this.

all i've seen even resembling an official comment from Kojima was from a fake Twitter account that said, simply, "@Konami: Stop."

Kojima's a professional--my bet is that he's planning to wait until it actually comes out before passing judgment. he probably has too much respect for himself and for Metal Gear as a whole to immediately go for the internet douchebag routine of passing judgment before you even see the whole thing (for example, on another board i frequent, the main thread about BvS was literally titled "Batman vs. Superman is a flop". not "What if BvS is a flop?" as a question, "BvS is a flop" as an objective statement, months before it came out)

I think that Kojima was too busy making MGS: V to do something like this. And even if he did, given Konami's lately, his vision was probably so warped by the company that any blame he would get would be nullified. I don't doubt that he might of wanted to do a spin-off of some sort. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was a spin-off with Raiden and that was received quite well with Metal Gear fans. But I'm not sure if he'd want to merge the Metal Gear franchise with the Silent Hill franchise, which is what this game looks like.

Well if Kojima was planning on dabbling in the Silent Hill franchise I could see him trying a crossover to see if it would work.

i've said it before, but i think if we see anything in the direction of his old titles from Kojima now that he's left Konami, it'll be in-name-only spiritual successors--for example, the way i see it, Death Stranding is probably gonna be the final realization of what would have been Silent Hills, since it's being made by him and Reedus is back for it and everything

Not to start any sort of argument, but as a huge SH fan myself, it really doesn't look anything like Silent Hill. I'd liken it more to Left 4 Dead, or the more modern Resident Evil entries. Even the alternate universe scenario deviates quite a bit from how Silent Hill's otherworld works.

You're the big Silent Hill fan, so I'll take your word for it.

It looks like the idea may have been Kojima's after all. I still think that Konami warped his vision beyond what he wanted though.

So regarding that MGS game, as someone who isn't that big an MG fan, it looks pretty bad still. However (and correct me if I'm wrong, because it's possible something has come out since I was online earlier), I wonder if Kojima hasn't made a comment yet because he had some involvement in this. Not like he developed everything, or was a major player, given his exit from Konami, but if it was something he started and then he was let go and Konami decided to move it along without him. Would be funny to me if this happened, because then all the people that are furious would have to acknowledge Kojima had something to do with this.  

I think that Kojima was too busy making MGS: V to do something like this. And even if he did, given Konami's lately, his vision was probably so warped by the company that any blame he would get would be nullified. I don't doubt that he might of wanted to do a spin-off of some sort. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was a spin-off with Raiden and that was received quite well with Metal Gear fans. But I'm not sure if he'd want to merge the Metal Gear franchise with the Silent Hill franchise, which is what this game looks like.

Not to start any sort of argument, but as a huge SH fan myself, it really doesn't look anything like Silent Hill. I'd liken it more to Left 4 Dead, or the more modern Resident Evil entries. Even the alternate universe scenario deviates quite a bit from how Silent Hill's otherworld works.

You're the big Silent Hill fan, so I'll take your word for it.

It looks likethe idea may have been Kojima's after all. I still think that Konami warped his vision beyond what he wanted though.

The designs seem more Left 4 Dead/ later Resident Evil as well.

I'd say it's 50/50 on Kojima though, anywhere from Konami heard this idea, and like you said twisted it, or that he did have early involvement before everything fell apart and then moved forward, which would probably still mean it was 80% more Konami than Kojima. Maybe it's just my hope of something good coming out of all of it someday, but I was at least hoping Konami would throw around the ideas from Silent Hills into something decent. Instead their throwing out this weird MGS spin-off just to get another MGS game out there, but when Silent Hills actually had traction, and was looking to return the series to something great after several lackluster sequels, Konami has decided to continue to ignore the series. Guess they've gotta keep that pachinko money going.

There is no way Kojima had any part of this. He barely finished MGS 5, worked on P.T. And then was starting silent hill. He then was sent on a long vacation until he was let go. That whole time he was working on his Death stranding ideas so he'd have a new project ready when he finally got let go. There wasn't any time for him to be feasibly involved with this IMO. So many projects and he knew he was leaving Konami after MGS5. He was literally sent away from the office the last 6 months of his "career".

This is just Konami being Konami. And it's just the beginning. Wouldn't be suprised to see a bizarre silent hill game next lol.

So depressing

Edit: also I hope this post didn't come off as aggressive. Metal Gear S had me in a bad mood and I personally think there is too much evidence that Kojima was probably never involved Smile

Sure. I got it on PS4 launch day and a week later I got a refund. Do I hate the game? No. In fact it's a neat little experience and it can sometimes floor you with its beauty. But my game was crashing and broken to the point of having to restart 3 times because of corrupted save files and crashing(lost about 20 hours combined).

I do plan to pick it up down the line but looking back on it I'm honestly glad I got the refund(besides the tech issues). Personally I don't think the game is even close to being worth 60$ at launch. There are tons of missing features and things that were clearly talked about and shown in trailer mere months before release. And the objective of the game is really just to mine and explore. Build your inventory and shield to be better etc.
One part of the game that was hyped up was so shockingly insulting that my jaw hit the floor. It was something that had been hyped up in the game since its conception, and if I knew how to use spoiler tags here I'd post it.

It's a love it or hate game for sure in my opinion. It's very chill and relaxing, and supposedly we are getting all the updates free(but even the creator back tracked on that statement saying he doesn't know for sure! ). So it could look like a completely different experience down the line if enough stuff is added to the game.

Very chill, very unique and full of incredible potential. But ultimately felt like a 60$ tech demo.

That's just my opinion of course Smile

Celebrating the first anniversary of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

Yes, it's not perfect. Yes, Mission 51 should have been the second-to-last mission with Mission 46 being the final one. But for all of it's flaws, I still LOVE this game. It's still one of the best games that I've played.

How is Resident Evil: Revelations 2? I ask because I'm trying something new and this may/may not be the only RE game I'm getting.

If there was a light gun RE game, then I've played that, but that was 14-13 years ago and only for 1-2 hours with my cousin.

i haven't played any RE: Revelations myself, but if you DO go for that, i recommend you also go for Resident Evil 4 afterwards--if you're gonna play them out of sequence as an outsider, then i think RE4 is the best place to start (that's where i got into RE, too)

If I like RE: R2, then I'll seriously consider getting RE4 if I can find it. Thanks for the advice. Smile

Thanks, but I prefer to get a solid disk copy. The only game I'm willing to download from the PS store is the original MGS via the special code in the one game pack.

i'm excited to see what they do with this (and if it'll have a different name in the end, like Red Dead Revolution, for example)

It didn't take long for EA to regain the title of "The Worst Video Game Company".

Shawn Levy is going to direct the 'Uncharted' movie.

Well now. This is a pleasant surprise. The NES Classic Edition, which is basically the original Nintendo that's re-released, has already sold out. That's an impressive feat when you consider how easy it is to download emulators online.
