Finally got a dishwasher and a sonos arc soundbar. One of them was my best investment in years, the other one was pretty awesome. Jul 14, 2020

        Alas I was desensitised (some might say deafened) by older model xbox 360s, and also those with fan mods.

      I hope a mod to turn the Doom Slayer into Samus appears... then I can double jump and grapple around pretending MetroidPrime 4 was released.

      There's something about Ys VIII that impresses me: load times.

        VIII for me isn't bad, just load times are weird, they can be instant or can take ages, don't know how it is for you, but because of how seemingly random they were it kinda killed it for me, sometimes it'd load in less than a second, others would load in like 40 seconds and it really was random, on PC at least.

        Oh, well, I am playing it on the Switch not sure if it makes any difference, but it is instantaneous, it kind of tries to show up one of this "hint" banners during loading and you can't get to read anything because it's already gone.

      Damn, anhedonia is killing me today. I hope tomorrow I can enjoy. Meh. Some days feel bad even if they are good.

        Same here, just boredom would be fine, but as someone who suffers from anhedonia in general, bad days are especially annoying to get through...

      You know Nintendo, I already got your passive-aggressive message. Metroid Prime 4 is a lie... well, at least port Metroid Prime Trilogy, ok?

        Good stuff, been wanting to replay it and Celceta too, but just can't get into the right mood for Ys... Just used to PSP versions for Ys games and shifting to PC feels weird lol

        I'm playing it on switch. A bit aliased, a bit choppy, but portable. Still I'm not sure if I should've got it on PS4 instead.

        The charm of Ys for me has always been the portability since all the Ys games up until ζ (seven) are fully playable on the PSP, with only exception being Origins. For the more recent ones, PC has the superior versions in my opinion though, not PS4, PC ports are just that well done! Although you sorta need a controller to get the full experience out of it, keyboard with Ys is a match made in hell:P

        Wash your eyes with that little plant that sleeps the moment you touch it in any way, the one that where the leaves close from either side for a while.

        Getting old... I'm playing most of the recent Total War games about 2mm away from my 24" monitor and I still have problems reading the text. /s

        If you don't get the joke, TW for whatever reason have RIDICULOUSLY tiny character fonts in some games (like UNDER 4)!

      My "SMART TV" went dumb to the point of rebooting all the time, so there goes gaming this weekend. Ordered an LG C9, hope it lasts longer.

        It catched a bootloop? I guess some hardware test failed. Have you tried to use a vaccum cleaner and isopropyl alcohol inside?

        Nope, all I tried to do was factory reset and firmware update, but it reboots seconds after entering the maintenance menu. I think it might be fixable, the screen is in good condition, but I don't have time to put into it really, so I am trying to find some friend or neighbor that would be willing to get it for free if they want to fix them for themselves.

      There must be nothing so punishing as dying on Witcher 3 on the Xbox One and being forced to endure a 3 minutes load screen to play again.

      When did we get to the point where games on a console "stop responding" and you need to reboot and go through 30 minutes check ups to play.

        Just Witcher 3 on the old Xbox One. I got it several years ago and now I wanted to play it... but oh well, I guess it is to be expected of an old dusty console, perhaps the HDD is dying.
