    Will not turn WoW back on. Will not turn WoW back on. Will not turn WoW back on. This is pretty much the one thing I've been asking for for years. Will not turn WoW back on.

    So the bad part is that I skipped a lot of the PS3 era to instead dick around in World of Warcraft for a decade. So I eventually bought a PS3 and bought a backlog of games to play on it that I haven't finished nearly as fast as I would have liked. And then I bought a PS4. So worse than playing remakes I've played before is that I'm buying PS4 remakes of games that I bought and still haven't got around to playing. My PS3 backlog gets shorter as my PS4 backlog gets longer instead.

    I don't own a 3DS or Switch. I haven't owned a portable since my old DS Lite. I don't play games on my phone. I'm not in a place where I will probably ever own a portable again, honestly. I just have no place where I'd use it. At home, I'm on my PC or PS4, I commute via car, get carsick when I'm not the one driving, I don't play games in bed (I don't get in bed unless I plan to put my head on the pillow). Even when I fly on airplanes for work, I prefer to bring a paper book. I hate staring at a tiny screen at an awkward angle and would prefer to do pretty much anything else instead. I'm in a minority I know.
    It's starting to get weird though. I have an eight year old, and she's got an iPad and has been picking up my old DS lately, so maybe at some point I'll have to get a 2DS or Switch for her... not me.Edited 2 times. Last edited 2 days ago by Unknown

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: Are You Still Playing Your Nintendo 3DS?

  • Avatar for Pandalulz Pandalulz 17 days ago

    Can't even respond really, nothing I've played this year is from this year. I did start Nier: Automata, and man that first hour was incredibly compelling, but then it's the holidays, and where most people get more time to play games, I have house guests until after the new year, so I've lost access to the TV with the PS4 until they leave. Eh, so it goes.
    I've been playing FFXIII on my PS3 attached to my computer monitor instead. I will finish it I swear.Edited 3 weeks ago by Unknown

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: What are Your Top 10 Games of 2017?

  • Avatar for Pandalulz Pandalulz 24 days ago

    PS4 wins by default for me since it's the only console I have. It's got lots of neat exclusives, a pile of remakes of games that I didn't get around to playing the first time around, all my RPG lovelies, etc. Hardware wise, it got a lot of neat upgrades with the Pro for 4K and PSVR. I'm not going to use either of these, but the fact that they're there at all is pretty darn awesome.

    The Switch made an explosive showing this year, but I'm not going to buy a console for the maybe three first party games that seem good (I haven't had a Nintendo system since the SNES). If I play games, it's on my living room TV or PC desk. I don't commute. I don't play games in bed. Half of the Switch hardware would be completely wasted on me, because unlike the rest of the population, I hate playing games on mobile devices (phones or gaming systems).

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: What Was the Most Successful Platform of 2017?

  • Avatar for Pandalulz Pandalulz 25 days ago

    Oh man, that comparison to FFXIII. I'm playing through it now (quit after 30 hours the first time when it came out, now about 40 hours into it again). Weirdly, I don't remember having any issues with it the first time, but now, every battle, boss or not, feels like I'm smashing my face into a wall. I still don't really get the weapon/item upgrade system as it feels like I never have any materials or cash. And paradigms are cool, but there's a bunch of enemies on Eden that do so much AoE damage, that I'm just constantly having to spam heals to stay alive. Sentinel taunts and saboteur debuffs fail 75% of the time. While I'm still progressing, I feel like I'm missing something vitally important.

    My buddy imported the Japanese version of Puyo Puyo Tetris last year, and well, we came to play D&D, but it never actually happened. With a group of people, it is so fun and addicting.

    Pretty much all of them. I finally decided to quit or at least lessen my MMO time and focus on some single player stuff, so almost everything I've played in the last month is ancient (at least for the PS4's life cycle). With so many people talking about it, I just booted up Nier which I bought around black Friday and just the first hour is so stupidly well done. So maybe that'll be the one 2017 game I get done before the end of the year.

  • Avatar for Pandalulz Pandalulz A month ago

    @catymcc It's all good, it was listenable just fine, editing was good, just had to turn the knob a little more than normal. It's honestly a good argument for the annoyance that is Android's lack of an actual audio mixer so Google Maps lady was yelling at me.
    Also, finally started Nier. That was the most entertaining first hour of a game ever. Also, managed to commit suicide by selling my OS chip. Whoops...Edited 5 weeks ago by Unknown

    @Jonnyboy407 I consider Resurrection to actually be the sequel to "City of Lost Children." At least that's my head canon.
