    The graphics aren’t bothering me, I know it’s easier than the first which gives it more of an arcade feel. It’s picked up a bit.

    @DarkFriday

    Check out this article on the upcoming console. :cool:

    9/9/99. 20 years ago today, the Dreamcast landed in America. And even though it was ultimately an absolute failure, it changed the face of console gaming forever. It brought the power Sega's arcade hardware into your living room (at a price more palatable than the Neo-Geo). It banked on network connectivity by including a modem. And it even ran Windows! You can draw a clear line from the Dreamcast to today's systems, making it seem even more remarkable in retrospect. Now that we're gearing up for another generation of home gaming systems, it's worth taking a look back at exactly how it foretold our current gaming landscape.

    @DarkFriday from that article

    With a cable accessory, you could also get 480p output from many games. It wasn't HD, but it was the closest we could get until HDTVs went mainstream around 2005.

    Through my Nephew. Same way I got a lot of my Xbox games. When I buy I buy 90% Sony. I'm gonna have a big catalog of good games for that lull when the new console comes out. There won't be a ton of titles for a little while after launch if the history of previous gens repeats itself which I'm sure it will.

    The 1st year or 2 they'll have both ps4 and ps5 getting the same games with maybe a couple that don't get the ps4 treatment. Then a few more until the 4th gen is dead. :bigcry:

    I used to buy those for the old gen... I figured wait until they stop releasing the games then buy the latest console. But I don't think that's wise... then I'll most likely buy them again on ps5 because it's the ps5. So I'll probably grab them on the new console asap. :grad:

    Finished Gears 2, so far I enjoyed this one more than 1, because of the story, it started off slow, but it delivered. Looking forward to 3.

    Had my blood drawn today for a test. Had to pay $300 for the tests from last week. This will be another few hundred.

    See this is why I only go when I'm sick.

    :nojj:

    Tapped out. I'm not a huge Gears guy. I like 1-3. 4 sucked. 5 seems good.

    Well I’m fucking vested now so I have to play it. Have you played 5? Lots of games on the Game Pass, they already have the new Mortal combat game.

    Game pass rules. All Xbox exclusives go on game pass day 1... if only they made them more than 1 a year. :sad:

    Like I've said... Sony is better at games. Microsoft is better at everything else. :grad:

    Will do.

    The other exclusives should still be on game pass. Sunset Strip. Recore. Crackdown 3. Gears you have. All the halo games will be on.
