I'm trying to play GTA V... driving is friggin hard to the point I get annoyed fast and either quit or go on killing sprees. I dont know if it will ever grab me like Red Dead did.
This is precisely why I only made it through about half of that game (GTA V). I'd be driving along and then get in an accident and then get annoyed and go into a rampage. It was supremely frustrating. A slight twitch left or right and all of a sudden you're flipping your car into oncoming traffic or rolling it into a building.

The characters were great and all, but I didn't have the patience to put up with all the people driving and stopping in the middle of the road, or the hypersensitive driving controls.

I wonder if I would be able to now.
I am going to try but it isnt as fun. Red Dead grabbed me as soon as we got off the mountain. The scenery and story were perfect to me to the point I want to go back and play Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Revolver.

Getting close to giving up. It is f*** impossible to get a woodpecker. I have googled how to do it, and I can't find one. The instructions all say to use dead eye, but I can't get it to work. I never use dead eye, because it makes it even harder to kill something, IMO. It won't auto-aim for me on dead eye, and I can't keep a bead on a flying bird manually.
Those and the robins were a massive pain in the ass.
The woodpecker is found technically all over the map on the westside of new Hanover and all up and down Rhodes and annesburg. You gotta use binoculars to identify them before they take flight though.

Fort Brennan is where I found a few of those little birds. That or by Downes Ranch.
Go in the fort, walk up on the ramparts, use your binoculars to identify them. Then take out your small game arrow, deadeye, right bumper (or R1 if PS4) to tag it. Then shoot. If you tag them you automatically track it even if it's in flight.
What do you mean by "tag it?" When I do dead eye, I aim (left trigger), then press down on both joysticks to enter dead eye, then track to the highlighted kill area using the joystick, and when there, hit the right trigger to shoot. Is that not correct?
If your sights are on/near an enemy or animal target in deadeye you can "tag" your target with the right bumper/R1. If the animal (or enemy) begins to move before your shot your aim will follow along with their movements. Makes getting a clean kill much easier. Especially with a bow and arrow.
Ok. I didn't know that this could be done. Helpful.

Though, I have still never even seen a woodpecker and I've looked for about 8 hours, so I have other issues.
Yep. I think I spent about 8 hours trying to find a freaking robin until I finally broke down and googled it. That's where I found out about fort Brennan being a bird haven.

Just make sure you use your binoculars to identify it first.

The river going south from the far north of Annesburg is another good place to look for them. A bunch of small birds like to congregate on the rocks on the river banks or in the river.

I ended up getting off my horse and standing still with the binoculars so you don't scare them away. Just make sure you equip small game arrows if you need the perfect carcass.

I bought the original Red Dead Redemption on my Xbox One a few weeks ago. Gonna give it a shot this week I think.

I know the graphics won't be as good but the story is supposed to be really good.

The original RDR is classic. I think I'm going to replay it.

Just spent an hour shooting every bird I saw from the walls of the fort. Still haven't seen a single woodpecker. I wonder if I did something wrong at some point so they're not in my game.

Finished the original RDR story line last week. Fun way to end it off. But after playing RDR2 I didn't have the patience to deal with how much less smoothly the gameplay was to try to get to 100% on RDR.

My kid heard me talking about my Nintendo a few weeks ago. This pst weekend he asked me to hook it up. I am hesitant to do it because right now it is just mine and I don’t want to share it.

GTA6 to be in Vice City? In 4K (or 8K, but 4K should be plenty),,,

Can this be now? I just want to drive around Miami for hours. Wonder who will have the more powerful next gen console.

The Minnesota Rokkrs won their first ever Call of Duty league match tonight at the Armory.
Those guys are so ridiculously good at that game its scary. Like some of my buddies are twice the player I am and they probably couldn't touch these players.

Apparently they won their 3-1 but one of their wins came via DQ because a player on the opposing team used a banned perk (Hardline). Oopsies.

Yeah, watching those like pro Twitch streamers play CoD or Battlefield on Twitch is crazy. I don't watch much FPS games on Twitch, only go on occasionally to watch a FIFA streamer. But I make my way over to those games when I'm bored. Man, they're insane. Just the reaction speed and precision of their aiming is out of this world.

Just saw something on the internet about the new Xbox coming out.... "Xbox Series X"

Now I know these gaming systems are all excellent... But what is with the "X" obsession? Is this supposed to be "X" the letter or roman numeral X as in "ten" for the Xbox? Apple has been obsessed with the roman numeral for a very long time with their OSX. I don't know.... I am just a little bored with X these days. And if it truly is "Xbox Series X" as the letter and not "Xbox Series Ten"... I just think that is stupid.

I agree with you. All it does is confuse me as to which is a newer model when it comes to buying. Apple did the same thing when they came out with the iPhone X, XR or whatever they're called :)

Not really sure that the X is supposed to stand for 10 in this instance. They went from Xbox to Xbox 360 to Xbox One. Now the Xbox Series X. I dunno what their naming system is 🤣

Has anyone played Oxygen Not Included? It's a PC game, and I'm hopelessly addicted to it.

It's a base building game. The premise is that you are part of a space exploration that has gone off course, and you are embedded in the middle of a far off planet/asteroid. You have some basic necessities like food and a small amount of oxygen. But from there you have to build a colony and survive.

There are some actually semi-complicated systems involved in the game as you progress (for generating oxygen, food, power, etc, etc) and the game does NOT help you that much. I've spent a lot of hours reading up online tutorials and watching videos, but also trial and error as I've played it.

It's 25 bucks on Steam, and it's helping me stay sane in this quarantine!

Cleaning out my parent's house as they downsize. Is there a market for any old systems? We have Atari 2600, NES, Super Nintendo, N64 and Playstation 2, with games, controllers, and all the neccessary cables? Thought I would check before just throwing or donating.

Some of the N64 games (and games from the older systems) might be worth something, but from what I understand, it can take a while to research and find out which games are valuable, find buyers, etc.

Depending on what you have, how much of it you have, and what kind of condition it's in, you could be sitting on several hundreds of dollars. But from what I understand, it's not a quick buck.

Sites like this can give you a general idea though, if you're curious: https://www.pricecharting.com/console/nintendo-64

I tried selling my PS2 a couple years ago when I got rid of my Wii and no one wanted it. So I still have that and my NES that my sister and I bought ourselves....it still works and I won't be getting rid of it ever.

This quote was written on the chalkboard in a lockeroom in the old Ralph Engelstad arena my Squirt team used the day after the Gophers used it and came into the game ranked #1 in the nation and lost 6-1 to a second rate Whioux team.

Short answer: yes they can be worth some decent money.

As gg13 said, its probably worth doing research to find what all you've got and it's value.

I tried selling my PS2 a couple years ago when I got rid of my Wii and no one wanted it. So I still have that and my NES that my sister and I bought ourselves....it still works and I won't be getting rid of it ever.
Yeah, the PS2 stuff is not worth much because there's simply so much of it out there. I might be wrong but I think it's still the best selling console in gaming history. Everyone has a PS2 in their basement, lol.

Once you get to N64 and older, those are the ones people are nostalgic about, and are a little more rare.

My brother sold, without asking, some of my SNES games...

I think he got $300 for Super Mario RPG: Legend of the 7 stars. This was a few years ago before it was ported to Wii: U. So not sure what the demand is for some of those games anymore, but it used to be fairly high.

I think he got $100 for my NES version of Super Mario Bros. 2.

Anyone else have an Oculus Quest? My better half got me one for Christmas and have enjoyed it, though it isn't hardcore gaming. Still trying to figure out the social thing though (I suppose it would help if I actually had friends.....).

Glad it isn't just me!

I do Rec Room's paintball pretty often. I like the VR Football Unleashed also, but get pretty frustrated when you get to the upper levels. Vader Immortal is just plain cool, but once you do the story the whole way through it's not much of a game to do over and over again. I have been doing Box somewhat regularly to vary my workout routine.

What's your go-to?

Go on amazon and get a Rasperry PI ($80) and a loaded SD card ($60). No more blowing on the cartridge! :) Old arcade games, Nintendo, SNES, Atari, Genesis, Playstation, Coleco, NeoGeo....all on one device. I built my own, but now they offer up packages to make it easier.

I go in cycles so I dont get burned out. The only issue I have with the Oculus is there arent a ton of games yet.

Saber Beats is an A+. Problem is I am to the upper levels (24 maybe?) so they are HARD.
The Thrill of the Fight is a fun boxing game that wears me the [bleep] out. Make sure to tweak your gloves so you can hold the upper handles of the controllers instead of the base.
I just started using Supernatural which is an exercise program. It is a monthly subscription so I am not sure how long I will stick but the workouts are fun with good music (60s-today) and awesome landscapes to focus on.
Synth Riders is like Saber Beats but a different setup and music. I actually loke it a bit better but play it way less for some reason.
BoxVR is a target based boxing game that is for more of a workout instead of fighting a person. (like a gym class)

I have others like Mission ISS but I dont play them much. I just downloaded the beta for Echo VR and I have a feeling once I get used to it that could be a go to for sure! Sometimes I just like to go on YouTubeVR or the theater apps and swim with sharks or launch myself into space. It is amazing how much fun it is :) I keep meaning to try Vader Immortal but I know I will end up playing that most of all, finish it and be made I spent so much money. Maybe Oculus will send me a combo special they seem to do that every week or so for something ;)

The only time I have ever been super into video games is the times in my life where I have lived alone. There was a year period my first year out of HS and then there was the year period between my ex-wife and I split up and and I moved in with my now-wife. I played a lot of video games during those times, but not much in between.

We have a PS3 and PS4 and before that I've had just about everything from a Genesis, PS2, Wii, etc. Heck I used to be into gaming enough that I was in a serious clan for Counter-Strike and would travel to Lan tournaments.

I don't know what it is now but I can't get into anymore and it actually bums me out a bit. I started up a new campaign with Battlefield 4 last week for the first time in 3 years. I used to be able to sit down for 2-3 hours without thinking twice, but this time I turned it off after about 30 minutes. If I can't play it even during a lockdown? Maybe someday I'll get the itch again. No one that does game should take that as a putdown I make no judgments. Like I said I miss it but for whatever reason my head isn't into it at the moment.

I go in phases. I think the last time I got super into a game was last year playing Red Dead Redemption...and I am not sure I have ever been that hardcore for a game. I usually play a game for a few weeks and then sporadically (its why I suck at MMORPGS) but that one had me hooked. One of the best stories for a game ever. (Knights of the Old Republic was better)

Oculus is different. The games I play I am literally engaging with. It isnt boring because your brain is actually firing on all cylinders. I sometimes get a better workout (and my muscles hurt more) from the games than I did in my black belt karate classes. It isnt just button mashing to knock the guy out in front of me I literally have to throw hundreds of punches. (that are scaled based on how hard you actually punch) So much more rewarding when they fall to the ground bloody and battered :D

Anyone excited about the PS5 reveal today?

I have had a 360 and an XB1, but I'm seriously thinking about switching over to Sony.

The exclusives on Sony might draw me over. Horizon Zero Dawn was an amazing game. I'd definitely want to play the sequel.

They certainly took a risk with the design. It will be polarizing. I like the risk, though. It's not the greatest design I've ever seen, but I think I'd rather have something unique than the literal box that Xbox put out.

I have a PS4 and XBox 1. I'm probably going to end up buying the new Xbox first because most of my Call of Duty friends are on Xbox and crossplay has way too many issues with game chat between cross platforms for me to switch over.

At some point I may get the PS5 too but the price point for these two systems is going to be astronomical.

I've seen speculation about the PS5 being $700, but man I just can't see that. Surely, that's way too high? They may have a model that goes to that price point, but it can't be the base console.

$500-$600 is my guess.

Even $500-600 is a bit much but I'll probably pay it anyways :lol:

I was always a Sony guy (all electronics) but when it came time to get a system for my kids, and by “kids” I mean myself too, I went with Xbox due to the NHL games and my best friend works for Microsoft and get stuff for it dirt cheap. That being said, I would consider going back to Sony ONLY because there is not a single good baseball game on Xbox and there isn’t a really good selection of games for girls.

That would be awesome. RBI baseball is terrible. Even Triple Play ‘97 on regular PlayStation was better.

Ice hockey, Pitfall or downhill skiing might have been my favorite.

Intellivision baseball was also a damn fine game!

Pitfall is great! I have river raid, ice hockey, and I think Grand Prix from that list. Wonder how complicated it would be to get the Atari to work on a modern smart tv.....🤔

Anyone manage to get a next gen system? I'm making the move from Microsoft to Sony this gen, going with PS5.

Missed out on preorders and wasn't able to snag one today. Hoping there will be a restock by Black Friday!

I'll be going with the Xbox Series X once I can get money and they get back in stock.
I saw somebody posting that the major retailers will be getting 200 of each system on Friday every week through Black Friday but I am always hesitant to rush out and buy a brand new system anyways. Rather get their second or third production line once they've had time to see if they have any glitches they need to iron out.

Anyone manage to get a next gen system? I'm making the move from Microsoft to Sony this gen, going with PS5.

Missed out on preorders and wasn't able to snag one today. Hoping there will be a restock by Black Friday!
I'm struggling with this as well . What are your thoughts on why a PS5?
The biggest reason for me is exclusives. There's no Xbox exclusives that I really want to play, but Sony has several exclusives I want to play, most notably Horizon Zero Dawn, and The Last Of Us.

Also, the new PS5 controller looks sick. I've seen reviews of the controller, and people say that between the haptic feedback and the adaptive triggers, it truly feels next gen. There's a game that is pre-installed on the PS5 called Astro's Playroom, which is basically meant to be a demo of what the controller can do.

The review I saw said that the controller vibrates and gives feedback with almost everything, without being distracting. Walking on glass feels different than walking on sand. The adaptive triggers could be so cool for shooting games. The trigger can provide resistance and feel like a real trigger. If a gun jams, it could lock to where you aren't able to pull the trigger until you fix the jam or switch guns, etc.

If the game devs start using the abilities of that controller in their games, it could lead to some next level immersion.
Ease your mind, have a banana or two.
