    What does Next Gen need to Sell you?

    The rule my wife and I go with is there has to be 5 games on it that we want and we can't get elsewhere. The only reason I even bothered getting a PS4 was because I found one at a garage sale for $60, the only games it has that I wanted to play were Spiderman, Horizon, and Final Fantasy 7 (and I...

    Daunte Wright Accidental Shooting

    These "accidental" draws are always interesting to me (bit of backstory I was a military auxiliary security officer for the Navy) because we were trained to have our belts setup from least deadly to most. On our right side is spray, taser, firearm that way you have to make the conscious decision...

    State of Decay

    I've beaten it a few times on xbox, it is a fine game that runs pretty well now a days and the issues at launch have been fixed. The whole game is just clearing out the blood plague and moving on to the next area. If your interested you can try it on game pass for the pc.

    Egypt's First Woman Ship Captain Marwa Elselehdar Blamed For Suez Canal Blockage Despite Not Being On Boat

    Just to answer the question of having a pilot come on board. Yes whenever you are traveling though certain places you will have a local come on board to steer the ship for you. While in the Navy we always had to use a pilot whenever pulling into Hawaii because of how hard in it is to do. On a...

    Mass Effect Remaster is happening

    My 360 collection copy is backwards compatible, the only way I would get it if it came to Switch, but EA hates Nintendo.

    Good Faith Transactions

    I did once in DDO back around launch, it was all very shady as i recall. Placed my order for the things i wanted and was told to be in the harbor tavern at X time and meet with an elf wearing a certain helmet, saw them opened the trade window they gave me my items, and they logged off nothing...

    Yahtzee nailed it (Games that beat me)

    Personally what made me realize i don't like the assassin's creed games anymore was while i was watching old zero punctuation videos. When he talked about about everything he really liked about the 1st one was the actual assassin stuff and it was all the busy work he didn't like, now the busy...
