Binding of Isaac heads will feel the pain : I was only a few rooms left from completing the Purist challenge (with a Bible as the active item) and died like a dumbass because I did not knew that sacrifice room + missing poster do NOT unlock The Lost while doing a challenge run.

 

Sorry but I had to get it off my chest :catbleed:

RDR2 online is pretty fun until other players show up. I wish I could turn off PVP in free roam...

 

Serious question: How would this be different than just playing the regular game once you unlock all the areas? (I haven't kept up w/ the online component/info)

 

 

There are NPC characters scattered around the map that offer types of quests. I took one from a guy at a post office and it required I deliver mail. When you're on this mission, other players can prevent you from finishing it, for really no reason. So a posse of like 3-4 people showed up and just kept killing me after each respawn until the time limit ran out.

 

It's infuriating to have to get a posse together to complete a mission I could easily do by myself if the game prevented other players from killing me. It's pointless to do them.

So what does that really mean ?

Means Microsoft is trying to become a platform for online gaming rather than have Live exclusively for its consoles.
Plus, once streaming becomes the norm you’ll be able to play Gears of War 9 on your Switch
I think the streaming titles currently on Switch: Resident Evil 7 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey in Japan, plus the similarity of the Switch hardware to the Nvidia Shield, have motivated MS to include Nintendo in this campaign. But yeah, XBL is definitely headed to an open platform service.
It make sense - the money is in the services, not in the hardware or games. Think about if MS had ALL (including PC master race folk) users paying to play online together - they'd make a fortune. I wouldn't be surprised if the NextBox is nothing more than a generic PC focused on streaming games.

They’re working on two consoles and my guess is that one is a streaming box and the other one is a regular console but able to stream as well

I wonder if the switch will get voice chat with the xbl service.

someone online;

They tried to use the app as a workaround since the console runs hot on some of the more intense games, especially in handheld mode. The added load of running chat software was likely more than the cpu could handle.

lol. I guess you can take comfort in the fact that Purist is one of the easier challenges and you should be able to get it eventually without significantly increasing the chances of having a stroke in your older years.

 

I've been happily living my life away from Isaac - and vidya in general actually, haven't played anything in a month - but I know that when Repentance arrives it's going to be pain all over again.

nintendo is known for not reducing in price. even years after release. so generally anything under msrp is considered a sale

Started my second run of Resident Evil 2 with Claire. It's a lot harder, but moves faster as well.

I found a bit of a workaround. Since you can see everyone that's online in the map, I only choose the missions where other players are not. Typically, I can finish them before anyone else can interfere.

Sounds like all three of us are on 2nd Run as Claire right now?

I think the only gun I haven't yet acquired is that heavy taser, or whatever it's called. Agree about the M79 - pretty much fries Lickers in two shots, one if you're really lucky.

Fuckn love Dariusburst.
=D

I just got an Atari for my birthday with like 30 games... And a few more for my GBA (Mario 2 and Yoshi's Island).

So I've been playing Ms. Pac-Man and the original Donkey Kong with my wife all night. Woo!!


Fucking. Hell!!!!
Yoshi's Island is easily one of the absolute best platformers I've ever played.
I can't believe I've never known anyone IRL that's played it before.

I've just started World 5... And last night I 100%'d World 1... Level 1-5 took me days to get a 100 score.

Fuck I LOVE this game!!!!

haven't played in a few days but basically from my experience if you hit a licker while it's completely still and it stays within the residual burn it will usually die in one hit. like, don't shoot one on the ceiling, 'cause then it'll fall down away from fire (figured this out the hall way). i've only encountered one or two that haven't died in one shot. i still haven't played since i last updated. been too busy =\

Started playing RE2 last night, I've never really played much of the series, so it's all fresh to me (was always more of a Silent Hill guy... (fuck you Konami)) I'm loving it so far though, always knew the original was a classic and this is really scratching that old school survival-horror itch I've been missing in gaming for a while.

 

Noticing the sound design is really well done also, I was playing last night in the dark with headphones on and the atmosphere definitely got to me. Good times, looking forward to how it all plays out.
