Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

It sounds like we are years away from seeing a new Elder Scrolls game, so it is not a big concern at this point. But I hope that they keep making PS versions. I think cross platform games are good for gamers.

Re: MLB The Show 21

If you are an Xbox Insider, there is a tech test for the Show starting next week and running 2/23 to 3/1. I think the test is for Diamond Dynasty - because that is what was mentioned. I went ahead and signed up for it. I do Insider to get the early updates - do the same with Apple OS and IOS. I am w...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

I was lucky to get a Series X on the Microsoft site on release day. I was in the group that got orders in 'by mistake' meaning there was no more product left to sell and it was the week before Christmas when it arrived. Since I skipped a lot of the last generation, going the second hand route and ma...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

I will be coming up from an Xbox One S, so I expect to get noticeably better graphics and load speeds. I was late to this generation and started with a Playstation and then got the One S about a year ago. I have to say that for some reason I really enjoy the sports games more on the xbox - not sure ...

I have had the same luck as others, what makes it even worse is getting all the way to entering the CC security code and confirming checkout before getting punched in the gut. I actually was able to get one on Microsoft's site that has been sitting in 'pending' since launch day. The word on twitter ...

I am using the zoomed camera - unlike previous generations it does not zoom so much that you can't see the receivers. The default camera was just horrible - it is a nosebleed view of the action.

Re: MLB 2013 Season Thread

I guess the Nationals front office is seeing that getting back to the playoffs is not quite as easy as they thought. Maybe they should have let Strasburg pitch last year after all. Just saying.

Re: New Xbox AND PS4 Info/Rumors

I am in no hurry to go to the next generation until I see games released that I need to own. I got the 360 close to release and was disappointed with Madden and really didn't find a game I loved until Oblivion and Dead Rising. I liked COD 2 but it was a pretty straightforward shooter. Honestly, I fe...

Re: Seriously? No RIP Maggie Thatcher yet?

RIP threads should be apolitical anyway. I was looking for some threads about PS3 games when I first got one and using the search button was not helping much.

Re: Top single player games of this generation

I really liked RDR and I have never been a big fan of the gameplay in the GTA games. I would like to throw out a vote for Oblivion. It was the game that first caught my attention on the X360. Not as good as Skyrim, but I killed a lot of hours in that game. Another early X360 game that deserves a sho...

As a Braves fan I am not losing any sleep, but it sounds like the Yankees will be fielding a AAA lineup to start the year with so many injuries and question marks. As deep as the AL East is this year, they could be out of it by June. I just don't see where the hits will come from and it is not like ...

Re: Thief reboot in 2014

If it was done well it could be a system seller for me. I loved the Thief games. I wonder if they could get the same voice talent? Stephen Russell as Garret would be a must. I just checked to see if he is still doing voice work and found out that he did Mercer Frey and other voices in Skyrim as well...

I agree with Teal, mental health is the big issue. We had a friend who's husband developed some really bad mental issues and there was nothing she could do to get him to get help. He never got violent but it was touch and go for a while. Not sure gun control would solve anything at this point. And w...
