Already did the download and install on my digital copy.

Also already took off from work Friday and told the wife that as soon as I get off on Thursday, I’m downing a 12 pack, passing out and waking up at midnight to play.

Yeah, I’ve been looking forward to this one for a long time.

Awesome. I'm neck deep in God of War4, wont start for a few weeks

My son wants it for his 13th birthday. So far the only shooters I have let him play are halo, overwatch and fortnite 

I read the parental reviews and it's mixed.. Some say you can turn off gore and language but there is torture. 

Would you offer an opinion about the appropriate age to play the game? 

Txs 

I can check the gore settings later and let you know what it is like with them turned off.  As is, 13 is kind of borderline IMO.

Thank you. That's what I am reading.

Just finished God of War...pretty awesome.  The building up piece was a bit more tedious than the previous versions.  I dont even know how much stronger I could have made my dude...there was so much that went into it this time and some many different types of power ups.  Good story, great scenes, fun fights, I'd like the addition of the sun in the battles too.  Pretty cool game.  Just finished it.  Kind of a boring ending though.  They've definitely had better last boss fights than this one.

I do. Very fun game, graphics are awesome and they did a good job capturing spidey's personality. I'm about 60% through the game, there's a lot of side quest and what not.

IGN gave it a perfect 10 as well. Damn near everyone is. Less than 10 hours to go. Can’t wait.

 

Curious, did you like the first one?  I found it to be pretty slow and tedious. 

Some games are just not for me, so I'm curious if this just isnt my style of a game.

I loved the first one. Though I may be a tad bit biased. I grew up loving the old Sergio Leone/Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns and always dreamt about a game that could capture that setting and feel.

The first Red Dead Redemption nailed that. But going back and playing through again recently, there really isn’t much to do in the open world after finishing the main story campaign.

The sequel (or prequel technically) is going batsh*t crazy with the customization options as well as side quests, random encounters and activities.

The last time I was even remotely this excited for a videogame was when Skyrim came out 7 years ago.

Every last review I’ve checked so far has stated that this is a monumental step forward in open world games. The most life-like game by far, supposedly.

I also love how Rockstar is damn near the only developer around these days who still includes cheats for their games. I won’t use them throughout the main campaign, but as soon as that’s over, I can’t wait to slap on God Mode and Infinite ammo and just wreck sh*t across the Wild West.

This escalated quickly 

1) Read this post and get more excited for RDR2

2) Start to think I should upgrade my ps 4 to a ps4 pro

3) Find a deal for an xbox one x bundle with fallout 76 and rdr2

4) Realize if I'm upgrading to a 4k game machine i should really upgrade the TV

5) Research online suggests sitting 11 ft from TV means I should have a significantly larger TV than my current 1080P 55 in

6) Research a new mounting system for family room with limited wallspace 

Tomorrow I will be cutting out cardboard samples of various TVs to size them in room (65-90) and by the end of next week this post will have directly lead to

$500 xbox one x bundle 

$2-4k 4K TV

$250-$1000 for entertainment center or mounting setup

+ countless hours of research 

I woke up this morning thinking I'll pick this game up in a couple weeks and now Ive decided I need to upgrade my whole setup. :D

Tots. I'm a former xbox person so I never played the game. I watched some videos on the backstory and what not and it really helped understand the characters.

As a former RPG guy, I like the RPG elements in action games trend. The strategy of how to build you character, what to spend resources on etc is pretty fun and adds to the sense of satisfaction when you come back later and finally beat a mini boss that has been whipping you.

This game was really good imo. I liked the way there was basically no load screens or they were clever about hiding them (mystic door) . It made the whole game feel very cinematic with the camera following the main character basically without interruption (other than HUD elements). Made it pretty immersive. 

It wasnt a flawless game or anything but the floor for these triple A actions RPGs is pretty high. A bunch of solid games out now.

I hate the controllers on RDR II, been playing since Friday and I still can't get right with it. I'm always shooting folks on accident, and I'm terrible when riding my horse.

Agreed, the layout is a lot different then I am used to.  Doesn't mean I'm not sneaking out of work today around 3 to go play for another 4 hours.....

 

Overall, the game is a little slow, but I'm sure things will pick up a bit.  I need to start a different save game where I just play like a murderous a$$hole.

Ordered Ace combat 7 today 

Reviews are gorgeous game, fun flying, stupid story. 

Slightly disappointed you can't play a crazy futuristic plane like the wyvern or nosferstu, but I guess the laser weapon will have to do lol

Im always late to these parties, with a wife, 2 kids and a demanding, consuming job with constant training Cont. ED, I have a hard time fitting games in. We have a PS4 that mostly gets used for Lego games and Little Big Planet nowadays. 

 

Anyway, Just Finished Dragon Age Inquisition and loved it. Had the kid at Game Stop recommend it, bought it used, and dove all in. Still have some side missions and Dragons to kill before I truly consider the current game completed. 

 

I think my next indulgence will also be from Bioware, Mass Effect Andromeda. Figure by the time I finish that, RDR will be available used.

I loved Dragon Age. The story was fantastic and the characters were well developed and interesting

Welp 

Ace combat 7 so far is a bit of a downer 

Graphics are gorgeous, aircraft are almost photo realistic 

But 

They added this cloud thing where you ice up if you fly in the cloud to long and your missiles have trouble locking on.... so guess where the bad guys go? 

They also added drones. Little bastards are tough to hit 

The story is so bad. I don't even know what fake country I am fighting for... 

Erusea

Uresea 

Osea 

I'm pretty sure I'm Osean. Really doesn't matter, when you lock on fire, but Ace combat 4 was so good, the story worked and some of the cut scenes you actually would feel something 

Hoping for a good A10 mission to save it.

Just beat Ace combat 7 

Really fun game 

The back story is gibberish, Ace combat 4 back story was actually moving, but some of the missions were very creative and exciting 

The final mission is an Ace classic. Took me 6 tries to beat it and it was so deliciously stressful like a good final mission should be 

They nerfed the X-02 that's really my only complaint
