  1. Totally got lucky and snagged a Farpoint Aim Controller from GameStop. They even responded to one of my tweets! Super pumped to check it out tomorrow!

      Saw they were in stock, was just coming here to post the link for you. Glad you snagged one.

      Nice! It's a def a great feature for PSVR and loved it!

    3. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      TK, have you played any other games with the Aim controller?

  2. The PSVR Aim Controller hasn't been available since launch. Apparently, the bundle with Farpoint was discontinued right after launch. Now that I can't find one, I want it so damn bad lol

      The 3rd party vendors have jacked prices way up. They're 2-3 times more expensive than they should be.

      Me too! I didn't think it would be worth it, but now I want it!

    4. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      Laddie, it doesn't make any sense. They wait for all these fantastic reviews to come out only for it to be sold out everywhere with no restock in sight.

  3. Nintendo looking like Sony today! Dayum!

    1. Jason Clement

      Indeed! A lot of people seem to be down on this E3, but between Sony's mostly unsurprising but solid showing and Nintendo's surprises today, I think it's been pretty good so far.

    2. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      I'm pumped about this E3. PSVR got loads of new announcements and not only from Sony but from third parties too.

  4. Can't wait to see some E3 predictions from my favorite Podunkers!

      Mario Odyssey will definitely do it, though I'm hoping they have more than what they've already announced up their sleeve. Their best bet would be the return of a dormant franchise but somehow I doubt that will happen. I'm sure we'll get some Virtual Console news too.

      Days Gone has the potential to be the next Horizon for PS4. I'm hyped for that one besides the sequel titles.

    4. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      It'll be interesting to see more Days Gone. Potential for boom or bust.

  5. I haven't been as excited as I am for Horizon in a long, long time.

    1. Jason Clement

      Jason Clement

      Looking forward to playing that sometime down the road when I have more free time. Glad to see it's getting great reviews!

    2. TKtheknight

      TKtheknight

      Nice! Same here. I ended up getting the CE and looking forward to it! Gonna be going through backlog so I can make room for the HDD lol.

    3. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      I was really close to getting that as well TK. Not even really sure why I decided not to...

  6. Cancelled my Switch preorder. Demand doesn't seem all that high for it.

      Jason Clement

      I wouldn't say demand isn't high; you can't currently buy it anywhere from what I'm seeing. But I don't know if it'll command scalper prices; that remains to be seen.

    3. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      Nintendo also said that they'll meet supply demands.

    4. iwx Leprechaun

      iwx Leprechaun

      I would have cancelled but a friend's fiance really wants it, so I'm hanging onto it so he has a shot to get one.

       

  7. Check out this year's Secret Santa post in the Bonfire Chat, Podunkers!

  8. Sony killed it at PSX today. Wish I would have went!

    1. Jason Clement

      Jason Clement

      I missed the press conference, but I could tell by the games that were announced that it was a good one. Nicely done, Sony!

    2. TKtheknight

      TKtheknight

      It was awesome! Wish I was there. Could've possibly got tickets, but I had work.

  9. UGH! Spam invasion.

    1. Rex705

      Rex705

      Mmmmm yummy Spam!

    2. TKtheknight

      TKtheknight

      Reminded me of GDD spam lol. Jason or barrel you guys need to clean up! xD

    3. Jason Clement

      Jason Clement

      Not sure how these spammers got through; this just started happening recently. :/

  10. I'm getting so excited for PSVR. I'm surprised that more games don't have pre-orders up everywhere though. I plan on getting Super Hyper Cube, Batman, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, RIGS and my bundle comes with VR Worlds.

      I also have AltspaceVR a social VR hang out.

      That all sounds sweet, Rex. Jason, you're wired to a processing box which goes into the PS4 so you can't move TOO far. As long as you have room to move your arms.

    4. iwx Leprechaun

      iwx Leprechaun

      I'm kind of bummed about VR, there's some cool looking stuff but I tend to get motion sick

  11. Holy smokes! Is Overwatch really THAT good?

    1. Rex705
    2. Venom

      Venom

      I'm just going to pretend it's not because I couldn't afford to buy it and PS+ right now. :P

    3. Shin GenX

      Shin GenX

      Where are you getting this? I am interested ^^

  12. Is anyone on here going to play Battleborn or Overwatch? Should I give these games a chance?

      Played the Beta for Overwatch and Battleborn. I probably won't buy either. They're not bad, just not the type of games I'd buy.

    3. Venom

      Venom

      I have zero interest in either. Overwatch doesn't have a campaign and I was excited about Battleborn for two seconds until someone mentioned that it had elements of MOBAs, which made me barf up said excitement.

    4. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      Haha ok! I kind of would like to try the campaign for Battleborn but it sounds pretty bleak from the GP community.

  13. How are all you Podunkers doing?!

      I know! Sorry, it's been so long since I dropped by. I owe a lot to GP!

       

      Things are going great at PSLS. Love being caught up in PlayStation all the time!

      Hey Steve!

       

      How's it going?

    4. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      It's going well! How's the old GP crew holding up?

  14. Enter to win cool stuff from Ready at Dawn and The Order: 1886! http://bit.ly/1wa6KHW

    1. Jason Clement

      So tempted on this, but I'll probably hold off until getting one next year due to money and all that.

      I missed this and I'm not happy. I didn't realize deals were actually on Thanksgiving...

  15. Sorry gang! I was traveling the United States and climbing mountains! Back now! Bring on Gamescom!

    1. Ciel

      Ciel

      Well look who is having more fun than the rest of us.

    2. TKtheknight

      You have been everywhere around the states during your summer vacation. Man wish I can travel. Welcome back!

    3. Venom

      Venom

      What are you talking about? He's missed all kinds of fun here in the time he's been gone. *wink wink*

  16. Sorry I haven't been active lately gang. Super busy this week! I'll be on vacation the next two weeks but I'll have my laptop for the next week or so before I head into the mountains of Montana.

  17. Just beat Wolfenstein. Wow. Did not expect it to be so well written. Impressed overall.

    1. Venom

      Venom

      Man, the more I hear how great it is, the more I need to play it. I just can't decide what to get it on, I wanna upsize my PS4 library, but I like FPS games on PC...decisions! lol

  18. So glad that I finally played through Tearaway! It was fantastic. It's a shame that no more AAA first party games are coming to Vita.

    1. Kezins

      Kezins

      My stepson got Tearaway a long time ago and loves playing it and replaying it even though he beat it quickly. I need to play myself since it does look really good.

  19. Okay GP. After a long weekend in Vegas, I'm back.

      Hope it was fun. I liked shopping in Vegas many years ago..great deals to be found especially at pawn shops.

  20. I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight! Eeeek! E3!

    1. Rex705

      Rex705

      I am confused! You say tonight but every website I see says it's tomorrow.

    2. iwx Leprechaun

      iwx Leprechaun

      I feel like this year there aren't going to be all that many surprises though. We shall see

       

  21. There has to be some way to organize the games on the PS4 bar thing.

    1. Marcus Estrada

      Marcus Estrada

      No way that I've found yet... D:

    2. John Kidman

      John Kidman

      I know, right?! I want to hide stuff like music unlimited, video unlimited, share factory and then organize games. That quick toolbar is so bad :(

       

    3. Ciel

      Ciel

      Not yet.

  22. Really starting to enjoy the Vita again. There are actually a ton of great games on it!

    1. Kezins

      Kezins

      I like the Vita...still think overpriced and small memory cards are holding it back though. :(

    2. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      I expect the price problem to be addressed at E3. Hopefully...

    3. Kezins

      Kezins

      Yeah. Would be nice. Even the 32 GB card is way too small but I hate replacing it considering the cost. Lol

  23. It's funny. I feel like I hold the PS4 to a much higher than I did the PS3 and the PS3 was frickin' $600! Why is that?

    1. Ludono

      Ludono

      Not sure, but the PS3 had a MUCH bigger "wow" factor for me at the time. Seemed like a super premium console. PS4 is just.. nice

    2. John Kidman

      John Kidman

      I have personally felt like the initial upgrade from PS2 -> PS3 was more significant than the initial PS3 -> PS4 upgrade. Most of the PS4 upgrades at the moment have been interface related. Just IMHO.

  24. So I am writing a new blog article but I am having a little trouble uploading pictures.. It says I cannot make a gallery?

    1. Jason Clement

      Jason Clement

      We had to lock the gallery for members last year since we were running out of hard disk space on our server, but we're on a different server with more space now, so I suppose I can open it back up if you'd like to use it again. Alternatively you can use a site like Photobucket, Imgur, or Flickr to upload photes, then embed them here.

    2. Steve Bitto

      Steve Bitto

      I'll try photobucket! Thanks!
