Nah, the overall reviews on the game average like 0-2. It's just the obviously paid-for "We literally can't take a crap on this game or we won't get access to the game in time for launch day reviews anymore" Safe-Ball 70-80s scores you're so interested in following. This is part of why Metacritic is a joke. Video game review outlets are largely just a marketing branch, effectively, because they know what will happen to their access if they rock the boat too often on titles with too high of a profile.

The honest reviews? They couldn't possibly have been submitted yet. Hasn't been enough time to play the game since launch.

I'm not saying the 0 scores are legitimate, they aren't. But they're obviously people none too impressed by the game nevertheless.

The bit in the HD remake? GU only had 3 episodes. The Epilogue in the new collection's like 2-3 hours, it's pretty insubstantial. And they dumbed down the first three games so badly that I don't think I'll be playing them much. Framerate and upscale is really nice, but you do too much damage and gain too much XP by default.

It's too complex and clouted for people to be bothered to care, and honestly every fudging big-time politician has paid-for foreign interests so when it gets down to where the bear craps in the woods, it's the same gosh darn thing. Clintons, Bushes, probably Obamas (though I honestly couldn't tell you what on the last part), Trumps, everyone's got skin in someone else's game. So I don't necessarily blame people for tuning it out, but on the other hand, This is THE LEGEND of Trump, so you'd wonder why he's so reluctant to show off what he's been up to lately. Normally.

I got a new 3DS!

Well, an old 3DS. That I sold so I could buy a newer 3DS, the 3DS XL, but not a New 3DS XL, that's different. Anyways, tight

I bet yours are nice and boring like ours are. But your financials aren't tied to essentially what your public persona is. Don's claim to fame is "I'm rich, dog!" and he ran a campaign essentially saying "BECAUSE I'm Rich (dog), I can make this crap work, nobody can do this better than me, believe it." Which is probably why he was so adamant that nobody was going to actually SEE his financials.

He's not a billionaire, at least if you look at his taxes I'm sure, which is why you'll never see them and why he lied about not being able to show them, and then misdirected to have an excuse to continue not showing them. Either he's lying to the feds or he's embellishing his financial accomplishments.

I wouldn't be surprised if he were broke, it's probably why he refused to give up the ghost when he was sworn in, because his name's all he's got left. But it's much more likely that you aren't seeing his taxes because he makes enough money that he can pretend he doesn't and not pay his share of taxes.

That's fine, I'm just saying. I find that when I have a huge stack of crap that I could play (Everdrive), I usually play a bunch of games for short periods and then don't play anything. Do you not have that problem?

And in Bean's case, he's wasting time, which he was complaining about (This takes sooooo long, "Are you even going to play most of what you're throwing on the system for very long anyways?")

I mean, yes?

I'm laughing that this is considered radical but essentially what's happened is someone's got a box with 21 games in it and before even popping any of them in, they're like, looking up Top 100 lists to find more games to stuff in the box. Like... I can see someone saying "Oh, it didn't have Turtles in Time or Chrono Trigger on it and I really wanted to play that." and adding stuff like THAT, but like, adding stuff to it for the sake of adding stuff to it...

Am I off base here? Just seems wasteful. "I don't know what I want, but this is definitely not good enough."

Keep in mind, outta alla y'all jerks I was absolutely the first one to mod up their system and throw titles on that I wanted, but I knew exactly what I wanted to play on it when I did it and that was after a couple of weeks of clearing games waiting for Hakchi2 to get an update.

That's just step 1. Step 2 is a better CPU (AMD FX 8350? It's the new bottleneck!), which will probably require a new Motherboard as well (because I'm obviously going to Intel), and then my DDR3 RAM ain't gonna work no more, need DDR4...

Like, trust me, if I'm spending $650, I'm actually gonna end up spending closer to $1100 at this point. There's a reason the XBOX One X has, for the first time, given me pause.

It looks like it's optimized better for XBOX than it is for the PC, I would say oddly, but I think it might have been more of a conscious decision by Microsoft (Forza Horizon 3) but it is nice to see new games pop up on both, unfortunately it does a slight disservice to the Xbox as a platform since you suddenly don't need an Xbox to play Xbox games.

That's why you don't throw hundreds of games that you probably will never touch onto the thing at once. smiley:::wink

If I had a 4K PC I'd probably go PS4 too, I like their exclusives. But for $200 back in my pocket I'll settle for a slim regardless. If I had enough money for a 4K Gaming PC I'd probably be in a spot where the Pro would be a negligible investment.

But as someone who's looking at either spending $650 on a video card or $500 on an Xbox, let's just say I'm weighing my options, especially with how great the games look, old and new (and in multiplatform titles so far, how much better)

Glad we've got sites like Metacritic to let us know which system is better.

No, you do that in Hakchi2 on each game by clicking "google". Or you google the images yourself and use those.

Not sure why you'd need to go through a Top 100 list to know what you wanna play or what you have to include, lol. My suggestion is to NOT fill it to the brim. Add a game or two you want to play, and play them. Then you can look for more to add. Slapping everything you can find on it at once is a surefire way to guarantee you won't really find time to play any of them.

@DCGX I'd say you're probably in the Sub-1%, but yes, in that very specific case where you have a 4K capable gaming rig, a PS4 Pro makes more sense.
