I don't have a current system and really only played games like Forza (racing sim and Horizon) on XBox and Gran Tourismo on my PS (pre PSOne or PS2) and haven't played any games in a few years, but wouldn't mind getting into the newer Forza games in an, at best, casual way.
Dumb. I like my physical games. If we keep this digital bullshit up there will be no retro game market in 30 years. All the license servers will be dead.

I loved all the other trials games (even thought Hard was my personal hell. lol) When I go into Rising I feel like I am forced to play their way and not what I want to do. I am level 47 and I want to play more just can't get past the way it feels like work when playing it. I am probably the minority when I play this one, but I just don't know. If I could get past the contract part and just level up while riding and doing better on a track I might play more. But when the AI bots just stomp you when you are trying to do a clean race it's kinda disheartening.

Sorry for being such a downer in my last couple posts. Just putting out my feelings on the games and consoles being asked about. If it is out of place I will try my best to tone it down. Also I am tired so that doesn't help.
I don't play the Switch all that often, but that's just because I love video games much, much less than I used to. I'm not sure why. It kinda bums me out and I miss video games as odd as that may sound.

I found Trials Rising to be easier, but I'm only in the 30s as far as my level goes.

Zelda is a great game because it had many hours of play. It was pretty damn hard and annoying in the beginning but once I started getting storage slots and some more hearts it got a lot easier. Maybe some day I'll play through it again.

I need to see what new games are out there. I havent looked in a while.
Zelda is an amazing video game and it still looks great even with the diluted graphics due to the lack of power inside the Switch. I wish I had the attention span and desire to play more of it.

This actually worries me a bit.

I have a stash of classic consoles in storage, couple of dreamcasts with emulators for classic NES and sega games, a Super Nintendo, an original nes, and an N64. My problem now is finding a tv that I can hook those up to.

If you have RF modulators for those (you can still buy a lot of them if not), you should be able to connect them right up to the coax input on any modern TV. Your TV should allow to you switch between digital and analog channels on the TV tuner, you'll need that analog setting. Also, results kind of vary on this, but most modern TVs aren't going to look great with those old systems unless you purchase an adapter, or have a TV that does upscaling.

Just for shiggles, I turned my Garmin on during tonight's GT3 race at VIR in iRacing. This is qualifying and a 25min race, qualified 4th, and came in second. Had a couple of big moments, I'm sure you can spot when. And I burned 214 calories. Hell, it's a workout program!

I'm on the Xbox if you guys, or anyone else, wants to jump on Spintires. I just trail run now since I've completed all the missions. Still a fun game though. Other than that I just mess around on fortnite and dabble in GTA.

New COD look fine ( at least ) but sadly its not something i am going to play due to the way it probably run in multiplayer.





It is a bit funny that guy smoke a cigar at night on a mission, he must be damn sure there are no enemies around for miles.

Iím on Xbox also. Same name as here. I have been playing through Dauntless and I spend way too much time on Destiny 2. If you want to add me go ahead.

I'm too lazy to look it up myself, is that going to be an RPG? Maybe something like KOTOR 1&2? That would be incredible.

I've been waiting 14 years for a proper follow-up to the absolutely amazing franchise that they started with 1 & 2 and then completely ruined by going to the mmorpg model..
(I'm old and stuck in my ways - I HATE online gaming. When I play a game I want to play - and I dont want to play against some ignorant little twat or have my gaming be dependent on internet access and/or game servers).

I miss kotor ��

Holy shit, a single player only game in 2019. Hell I'll buy it just for that, so long as it's no MMORPG.

been waiting for a good story-driven star wars game. force unleashed was pretty good. there was an "okay" story mode in battlefront 2 but this?
oh man... might not be as good as what we could have got from 1313 (scrapped boba fett origin project?)

and who else saw the avengers from square and just went "meh..."

please don't get me started on the damn LEGO expansion for forza horizon...

oh oh but yeah cyberpunk 2077 might be my go-to and first "long play" (*like more than 20 min sessions of play) game since halo 3 for me!!!
