Thank you for this. It’s nice to know I can practice against bots - to get used to the maps.

It’s been awhile since I’ve played an online shooter - and this would allow anyone in a similar boat to get their thumbs back in shape.

I got a decent way through Demon Souls and DKS1, but B.B. was the first one I completed - including DLC.

I just started DKS3, and I own the remastered DKS2. I’ll beat these and then get the PS4 remastered DKS1. I’d also like to finish Demon Souls.

BB helped me understand how to play these games - though the combat is a little different.

The article says the biggest growth was seen in mobile gaming. With the latest round of smartphones - and their gaming capabilities, I expect this trend to continue.

This fall should be huge for PC and consoles as well.

What qualifies someone to be a video game critic? I could start a website and start reviewing games.

In other industries, it seems a critic’s credentials are based on accomplishments in the industry and peer validation.

For video games, some random person gets hired by a website, and we are supposed to give weight to their opinion.

I honestly haven’t started it on the PS4; I do have it on my Mac - and I’m about 10 hours in.

I like it - it’s point and click - so it’s a thinking game and not a finger dexterity game.

I’d recommend reading reviews to see if it’s something you’d like - and the price is right just to give it a try.

Many games are the same ones we’ve been playing for decades. - Sports games, racing games, online shooters...etc. Every new version tweaks the graphics and small gameplay elements.

Creativity with a Spider-Man game is somewhat limited because he is an established character with an established story and setting - any significant changes would make it not Spider-Man.

Dang - Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition is only $9.99 with PS+; I got a few months ago for $14.99 - thinking it would never drop lower.

Is this game backwards compatible with the XBone?

So you can get a XboxOneX with 24 months of GamePass and Live for $34/month?

What happens at the end of 2 years? Do you own the console at that point? When you figure GamePass is $10/mo and Live is $5/mo, that means you are paying $19/mo for the console - which is $456 for two years. That would be a good deal.

Do I have something figured wrong?

No other games give me the same level satisfaction for beating an enemy or beating the game than the Soulsborne games.

Well said!

I think how the internet hurts gaming is the high percentage of people hating on everything or anyone who is enjoying something.

Don’t get me wrong - I appreciate reasonable and thoughtful opinions- even if negative, but those are far too few and far between.

I wonder if these types of games are just losing popularity.

I’m getting too old for online FPS games - my thumbs are not as quick and I don’t have time to play and git gud they way I used to, and I don’t have a group of guys that play every Saturday night like I used to - multiplayer w/o friends is not as fun. So now I just play SP games.

My son and his friends are into games like Fortnite.

People politicize everything and are offended at what is in games, what was left out etc.

So, yes - games and politics can’t be separated.

Tempted to trade in my Forza 6 XBOne. But I just have a 1080P TV - so I don’t think I’d see a significant improvement in the games.

I’m waiting for the next gen of consoles before upgrading my TV. OLED should be reasonable by then.

I hope they bring it back - I really liked the series.

I'm not a PC gamer, but isn't it likely that the next gen of consoles - if they launch 2020 will be about as good as what a high-end PC can do now? And if so - can current high-end PCs cross the uncanny valley? (I thought not).

I watched IGN's Prepare to Try of the RE2 demo, and it looks amazing - tense, creepy - tons of puzzles.

I'm confused. They don't want to emphasize PvP, but they allow you to build a nuke to annihilate someone else's base. I'm afraid that without NPCs and any semblance of a story, people are just going to kill anyone they see on site - especially if you are a lone player and encounter a group of a few friends. I doubt its going to be "Hey, come help us kill this Supermutant."

I guess Bethesda will see how people play when it comes out - and how it...

I can relate to a lot of these points. I've 45 and been gaming since the Atari 2600. I, too, am married and have 3 kids. The biggest factor is time and energy. I usually game either Friday or Saturday night for 2-3 hours - after everyone has gone to bed. Sometimes I'll skip a week for whatever reason. That's it. I could get an hour in during a week night, but I'm too tired, and I get up early to work out.

I almost never buy games at release - not that I...
