I almost rolled a 300 on my wii bowling. After each strike it would say "nice shot!", after the next to last strike I needed to get the 300 it said "nice shot?" Freaked me out and I didn't get a strike.

...last 2 series might be considered more city builders but not sure

idk what to think about city builders.  See, I like buiding one, or maybe a few cities.  But like in Civ, once I've got like ten friggin cities I'm like I don't really give a fig if some remote colony wants a new temple, just send me my friggin gold and stop bugging me.   ;)

Has anyone experienced the differences between the PS4 and PS4 Pro? I'm considering getting at some point for Ace Combat 7, Wipeout Omega, and Death Stranding but don't know if I should wait for the Pro to get cheaper or to go for the older version

best i will tell you is go here..take things with a grain of salt cause some posters are idiots or just out and out fanboys and make your choice...from what i have read..i think the pro isn't true 4k or something like that

I think from reading that it sounds like there is a slight difference between the two if you don't have a 4k tv (which wouldn't be worth it if you already have a PS4), but the Pro is the better option if you don't have a PS4 and that going forward developers will take advantage of the better specs.

So I guess there's no harm in waiting.

Neat .. there was something similar Logan posted awhile back on the tech thread, some dedicated linux OS ... sounded cool but wasn't sure if I'd get bogged down in details.  But I like the idea of a dedicated machine I could use for this.  I actually have an old laptop I never use, maybe I could run an emulator on that or whatnot.

You can just get a raspberry pi off ebay that is already setup with an emulator OS like Retropi or Lakka on it.

Then you just need the games which you can get by buying a micro sd card on ebay that is already loaded with games.

Should cost you around idk $120 or so.

Is there a way to run an emulator on your pc, then pipe it to your tv, whilst using a real controller?  I want the old-school vibe yo.  ;)

I do that with my lap top.

If your computer or laptop has an HDMI connector you can connect it to a normal flat screen TV

Started playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution.  Was having fun and pretty amazed at the graphics, but its subtle references and being in that world again made have to go back and start playing the original Deus Ex, some 15 years after the first time.  Damn if I'm not having fun again.  (Well to be fair, it is my fave game of all time.)

I don't know if I forgot some of the details or if the PC version's different than PS2 which I originally played, but there's stuff in there I'm still discovering even though I've played it through at least 3 times before. 

No videogame has ever been more perfectly suited to fans of paranormal/conspiracy/futurism topics (i.e., this crowd).

I don't think they're allowed to see any resemblance.

i do not think it will be..but i can see where people are fearing that...what i have seen..combat seems a bit different..has no connection to the previous games and i am not sure but i do not think it is the start of another trilogy..but i might be thinking of something else

Overwatch is such a frustrating game,  and it's almost always caused by teammates and a seemingly broken matchmaking system. Things aren't helped by the developer constantly adjusting gameplay with patches.
