Dont you hate it when gaming backlog is so large it takes you ages to pick something to play then by time game updates you run out of time. Dec 22, 2016

      Just a curiosity of mine. You said you never played a Devil May Cry game, and are only an admin here because Steve asked you to be. But since you've been on here for SO long, reading and seeing stuff about the series, have you ever been at least tempted to play them? Or maybe action games are just not your genre.

        I havent owned them myself but I have played a couple of them & watched Steve play the older ones at his house a decent amount. I like action games but have never really been a big Capcom fan, nothing against them but their style just wasnt my thing. Same reason I never played any resident evil outside of the original (mainly watched others play it), I have never really been that into ANY Capcom game.

        Some developers styles just arent my thing, its not exclusive to Capcom though. The series itself was decent enough with its mechanics but the stories just dont grab me. Quite a few developers out there that have a style that doesnt really grab my interest enough to buy the games. Since ive got older, a mortgage & a child im even more selective of the games I spend my time & money on too.

      Great to see an RTS classic (Age of Empires II) still being supported with new expansions to this day, bravo to development team.

      Dont know how people can finish games so fast, if I live to Fidel Castros age I might have finally managed to finish The Witcher 3 by then.

        I've been wondering that myself, even without a spouse and kids, full time job meant I came back home too tired for gaming. My brother even gave up on games, by the time the kids were big enough to entertain themselves he still couldn't get to play anything, cause the moment the console was on it was like hyenas smelling a carcass, they wanted to play.

        It's a choice between making some progress on games or catching up with TV shows some days too when I do have some spare time. Great to have huge RPGs to play but they take up so much gaming time it's hard to fit them in. Working way through shorter games at min to lessen the sheer amount I have to get through.

      Gaming industry gets a lot of flak for its copy & paste, lazy nature but some of the tech being showcased in some games lately is stunning

      There simply arent enough hours in the day to get through all the games I own/want. Could we have another weekend day added at some point?

        We can discuss bigger display pics by all means, as far as I know the display pic limit for Gold Members was larger than regular members already though (cant remember how much by).

        1st world problems and all that, with free games on Gold & free games on PC being given away from time to time my backlog gets bigger even if I choose to not buy any new games.

      With success of Pokemon Go, Nintendo should release app on phones that plays GB/GBA games that you can buy so people can play classics too.

        GBA emulators work on phones, really well in fact so instead of having Apple revoke licenses to them all the time make a viable alternative for people to use instead.

        Originals or remakes (FireRed & LeafGreen)? Or maybe both? I don't know how powerful phones are as I don't own one.

        Well I tested mine with Pokemon Gold/Silver/Yellow and Blue and they all ran on the emulator fine. iPhone 5 which I have is 4 years old and still has a 1.3GHz dual-core Apple A6 processor and 1GB of RAM so even that is MORE than capable of running them.

        For years I wanted games that would take ages to complete & now ive had The Witcher 3 since release and not finished it yet & played Fallout 4 for about 6 hours in total & still have about 30 games I havent touched. Liking look of No Mans Sky too but thats looking like another time sink.

        From what I remember the controls are actually meant to be easier in the PVP too in comparison to the full game.
