    Recommend some games for me

    Nioh Dragon's Dogma Monster Hunter World Horizon Zero Dawn Oops my mistake, you are on PC. Well a couple of those might be on PC. Maybe they all are, except Horizon ZD. It is exclusive to Playstation. Oh I see you played Horizon ZD already. So you have both console and PC. instead of HZD I...

    Monster Hunter: World

    The Smithy in the workshop told me himself that the most important part of fighting monsters is preparation. He is a man who ought to know!

    Monster Hunter World (Beta)

    I always liked the music in the game. It was a highlight for me. Even though I had a tough time wrapping my head around all the gameplay elements, and learning to adjust to this Monster Hunter combat, I always really enjoyed the music. Caught my attention immediately when I first heard this new...

    Monster Hunter World (Beta)

    I do not care for the new theme music. The music when you enter Asrera. It is awful! I really liked the Astera music in the first half of the game. Fired me up to want to go out and hunt something. This new score is generic tripe. Terrible! I wish there was an option to get rid of it and bring...

    Monster Hunter World (Beta)

    Just rolled the credits on this bad boy, and after the final boss fight I went from HR 14 to HR 29! It is like the game is starting all over again, lol. Cool, more Monster Hunter the better!

    Monster Hunter World (Beta)

    I do not understand why my character is not leveling up in this game. Just over 300 hours, got as far as the final boss, done every Assignment quest as well as about 3/4 of the Optional quests, but I am Hunter Rank 14. Shouldn't I be higher rank than that?

    Do you expect full backwards compatibility for next-gen consoles?

    Sony understands the marketing value of BC. The launch PS3 was BC, but it was expensive. It is the first couple of years after launch that BC is most valuable. Once the PS5 hits its stride and has a satisfying library, BC becomes almost a moot point. For me, I can take or leave BC. If the PS5...

    Monster Hunter World (Beta)

    I been playing this game pretty steady for the past month or more. Took many hours for me to get a handle on this game, and become anything approaching proficient. Now however, I have come to grips with the combat and have become much better at monster slaying with a Long Sword. The armor...

    I need a new game to get into.

    Monster Hunter World? Some love it, others not so much. It is a beautiful, well developed game. Has a steep learning curve. It's Japanese developed with a ton of attention to detail. But it ain't easy. It is a hard game to get really good at. But if you like the combat it is fun to learn.

    Dragon Quest XI

    Can't say if this game is among the best RPGs ever made, not that far along in it. But I can say it is among the best crafted. Playing on a PS4 Pro and a 4k Sony TV and it is like playing a work of art. Good looking, smooth running game and it is entertaining to boot.

    Monster Hunter: World

    MHW is not as bad of a grind as Conan, from the sound of it. You will not need to collect 100s of items to craft what you want. But you will have to collect stuff. Sometimes you traverse environments, harvesting or mining. Or, you collect parts of monsters that you slay . They drop bone, skin...

    How big is your Gaming screen?

    A 49 inch Sony X900E. I pair it with a PS4 Pro. Big improvement in image detail over the Sony CRT 34 inch XBR910 it replaced. But the old CRT still holds the crown for deep blacks and viewing angle.

    Monster Hunter World (Beta)

    World of Warcraft... is that game still a thing? I played it for about 9 months after launch. I loved it for a while, but when I had my fill of it , I put it down and never picked it up again. It was my first ever MMO.

    Monster Hunter World (Beta)

    I think it is a better game than that. For me it has been one of those games that the more I play it, the more I warm up to it. It might take a majority of players new to the game more than a week to really figure the game out. There is a lot to it.

    Monster Hunter World (Beta)

    Been playing MHW on and off for a couple of months. I think it is a mixed bag of very good and not so good. The good includes environments, art style and graphics, Japanese wit and charm in the writing and characters, music, animations and general motion quality of all people and creatures. The...

    What game would get you to buy a console?

    Couple of ducks have to be in a row before I would buy a second console. 1. The console I currently have has no games on it that I want to play. Since I have a PS4, this is not going to happen. 2. The console under consideration has at least 3 exclusive games that I am interested in. So, the...

    God of War Will Offer a Performance Mode for Non-4K TV Owners on PS4 Pro

    Just got my first HDR 4K TV. A Sony X900E, upgrading from a Sony XBR910 HDCRT. Wow! what a step up in visuals. Using a regular PS4 and it is performing so well, and looks so good, I can't decide if I should drop $400 and step up to a Pro. The standard PS4 even supports HDR.

    What (average) FPS is acceptable to you in games?

    If I am cruising at 50 there is very little to complain about, so I also voted 50. Of course 60 is better, even noticeable better. Still 50 is playable without moaning about it. A couple of years ago I was playing Rune on a 60hz CRT monitor. Rune was locked at 60fps. Man, did that look sweet...

    God of War 4

    Only GoW game I played through to completion was the very first one. After that I tried others but they never interested me much. Never cared for the button prompt, Quick Time Event combat. Also I never warmed up to the fire chains/whip weapon thingy. But this ax is looking okay. It might be a...

    TV just died - what would you recommend?

    If you are on a budget and need a TV, the P series TCL is suppose to be the best offering out there. I do not own one, just going by what I have researched. But no reviewer has said it is not adequate, or that you can get more value for your money with something else.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Started up Monster Hunter World. Have to say it is a well made game. It has a ton of content. You can play either single or multiplayer, although I have yet to try multiplayer. My main problem is I do not find fighting the monsters to be much fun. Long drawn out fights. Seems like you need to...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Enjoying Dragons Dogma remaster on the PS4. Big frame rate improvement over PS3 version. Great action RPG, one of my all time favorites, and judging by how often my pawn gets rented out, there are a good number of players online.

    Nioh: Complete Edition

    Been playing Nioh quite a bit since it came out on PS4. You could say it is like Souls. In many ways it is, but those ways are mostly superficial. It is more of its own game than it is a clone of anything else. Souls has influenced it, but so has Ninja Gaiden, Onimusha, and probably some others...

    No Elder Scrolls 6 to protect ESO and Skyrim success

    I am another who does not really enjoy Elder Scrolls games. I can enjoy them for about 10 levels and that is about it. I grow so disinterested wandering around searching caves, talking to dull NPCs. I put many hours into Morrowind trying to get into it. A lot of walking and reading, and what is...

    Any FFXIV players?

    I played it in spirts. Buy a time card off Amazon and play it for 3 months. Then leave it off for stretch. Haven't played in a year or so. My second favorite MMO after Age of Conan. I liked the writing, lots of surprises and humor. At one point I joined a guild, but mostly I soloed my way...

    Human Head Studio Announces a New RUNE game!

    I played the original Rune on PC a couple of years back. For the most part I really enjoyed it. I think the game came out in 2000. This new Rune is going to be an open world ARPG. I am keeping my eye out for It. PAX West is coming to town this weekend, maybe there will be something more about it...

    Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition is on sale on the Playstation store for $22 bucks, so I took them up on it. Played some last night, but there was a lot to learn about controls and game mechanics. Hear tell the game is pretty tough, but it looks nice and has nice gameplay features...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I am playing Nioh on PS4. This game has completely won me over. I play other games, Witcher 3, Horizon ZD, just to take a break, but they just don't hold my interest like Nioh. The game is so in depth and challenging, I can't master it. I have yet to get to the point where I can't improve any...

    How many of u not even getting current gen console at all, & just sticking to PC gaming ?

    I am just the opposite. Have a pretty good gaming PC, but don't use it much. I understand it runs games better, has a better game selection as far as volume and all the rest. But I just prefer console gaming. My son uses the gaming PC. I am fine with the PS4, the titles that are on it, my uber...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Combat in Horizon is a challenge for me because there is no lock on ability. Things got squirrely when more than two enemies were in the fray. I had to do a lot of shooting while dodging and running. Makes aiming difficult.

    What do you guys do with your old monitors?

    I used mine until they quit working. Had a Sony fw900 wide screen and a Viewsonic Professional Series 21 inch 3:4. Both were miles ahead of any LCDs that were the rage at the time. Recycled them both at a place in Seattle called Re-PC. They took them off my hands free of charge. Still using a...

    Last of Half Life Writers Leaves Valve

    The only Half Life game I really enjoyed was Opposing Force. Played through Half Life, thought it was okay. But Opposing Force I liked more. Half Life 2 I started up several times, but never finished it. Tried to get into it at least 3 times. Just couldn't hold my interest enough to see it...

    Escape from Tarkov pc game article

    My son has been playing this game. All he does is tell me how great a game it is! It is a realistic multi-player shooter kind of like Stalker, but without the Si-Fi element. Super intense, you can trust no one, anyone can kill you at any time. Die and loose all your gear, and equipment is hard...
