  1. Started playing DMC 5 today and it's awesome as always. :)

  2. I watched Overlord it was pretty good I liked it. Lots of bad reviews complaining but they are just idiots. It's WW2 with Nazi experiments, not a zombie movie. If you enjoy a good war movie and Wolfienstien games then you will enjoy this.
  3. GP should get a Discord that's what all the cool kids use these days. :P

  4. Happy new year everyone!

    Happy thanksgiving

    Still eating leftovers lol
  6. I watched the Solo Star Wars movie it was pretty cool. The spin offside stories are good but the main series is just blah. They could have done so much with Star Wars but they just went with copy paste.
  7. How to be a retro gamer in the modern world Do you still have your retro consoles and miss your favorite games? These days with our new HD TV's everything is HDMI so you can't even plug in your old consoles. Even if your TV does have these old plugs the games just don't look as good as they used to. This little guide will help you breath new life into your retro consoles and games. XRGB-mini Framemeister This nice little Japanese upscaler is the go to tool for retro gamers for NES all the way to PS2. It is a big price tag of $300 but if you want the best out of your old games this is what you need. You will need to buy some cables and a Micro SD memory card to go with it. You will need to get the D-Terminal cable for anything that uses Component cables and luckily you can get one bundled with your Framemeister. You can easily google a picture of the remote for an English translation but really the only buttons you need are the power, menu and arrow keys. The latest software update gives you the option for an English menu so no worries. Then once you have it all hooked up you can go into the menu and start tweaking to get everything looking good. You can buy the Framemeister here. For a nice setup guide that tells you everything you need to know about the Framemeister go here. Other Options The HDMI converter for PS2 is NOT an upscaler but simply lets you plug in your PS2 with an HDMI cable and works just fine. This is only for PS2 Slim. Get it here. The Gamecube HDMI cable is like the PS2 one but a little bit more pricey because it's custom handmade by a single guy. You will need to be on a waiting list because the cable is very popular and he get's a lot of orders so it takes time to make them and ship them. It's worth the wait if you want to plug in your Gamecube with HDMI but again it's not an upscaler. You can get it here. For PSP on the big screen, you will want the Sony Component cable like this one here. I hope this helps you with your retro gaming. I currently have my N64 hooked up to my PC with the Framemeister and playing Paper Mario.
  8. If you want to play classic Doom and some other classic shooters on your modern PC check out my tutorial. You can see how good Classic Doom looks in my many Doom videos I never thought I would ever do one of these tutorial videos lol.
  9. Runaways and Cloak And Dagger are sooo good I can't wait for more. In the movie world, I watched the comedy Tag that is based on a true story and it was fun. I watched Deadpool 2 in 4K and it was awesome even better than the first. I would love to see more Ryan Renolds Deadpool but now that Disney is taking over Fox that probably won't happen.
  10. I just watched an old movie from 1973 called Westworld and it was pretty cool. Yes the HBO series Westworld is a remake of an old movie. It was a cool movie just like the show and turned into Terminator with an evil gunslinger. Those silver eyes are super creepy. Yul Brynner is an awesome actor. Now I need to watch the sequel movie FutureWorld.
  11. I got Tomb Raider on 4K it was pretty cool way better than those other Tomb Raider movies. I wish they spent a little less time at the start building up the character and put in some more action but it was good. Nothing compared to the game of course.
  12. This movie is not by M Bay and you can clearly tell the difference. This actually looks like it could be a good movie and OMG that split second shot of Starscream! They still have the Bumblebee can't talk thing but whatever. lol the trailer gave me Hurbee movie vibes. I'm actually excited to see how this turns out anyone else?
  13. Is anyone watching this? I am and it's pretty cool so far. I like the characters and story and the visual effects are good. Sci-Fi channel is good at making quality shows this isn't your CW superheroes. Season one big bad was Brainiac and he was super creepy. Next season looks like it will be Doomsday. I don't know how impressive Doomsday will be as he is a CG character and not a kick-ass makeup and costume like Brainiac. What do you think?

    Share your last beaten games here!

    Do demos and EA count lol? A VR game I found on Itch.io that came out on Steam finally went into EA with a bunch of new stuff the demo didn't have. I grabbed it day one and I love it. Just played it today and I made it to the end of 9 levels. Well, it's 3 levels but you play each 3 times. The game is called Compound and it's a classic shooter like Doom in VR.
  15. It looks pretty cool I don't understand why people always gotta hate on things. I rarely get to the theaters and my TV does not have 3D like my old one did but this looks like a nice move to pick up in 4K. I wish my TV had as nice a sound system as my PC does with it's 7.1.2 Atmos speakers and receiver but hopefully, the 5.1 speakers will be fine.
  16. Amazon Link This was a fun ghost story about a guy searching for his missing parents in his haunted house. I enjoyed all the ghost characters and the mysteries of the house. It was a real page-turner kept me reading chapter after chapter. As soon as I finished the book I bought the rest of the 9 book series. You can grab this book for FREE on Amazon Kindle.
  17. Looks awesome as always. I have seen everything but Black Panther so far. I wish the DC movies could be as epic and not get so much hate and problems. I have enjoyed all the DC movies and don't understand the hate but oh well.

    Cryptocurrency in games

    I hate all of this crypto nonsense and wish it would go away. I don't know anything about it or how it works but because of it, graphics card prices are insane.

    PlayStation Plus dropping free PS3 and PS Vita titles in 2019

    I don't have a PS4 or PS+ but still think it's lame to drop last gen games. When will they learn that people still enjoy retro games? It's even more annoying when you can't buy these games anywhere anymore but yet they cry over using emulators.
  20. Am I the only one here who reads books? I posted 2 reviews in the book review thread. If you guys read you should post some reviews of books.

      My 400 something books come from the mailing lists that I posted in the other thread and free books found on Amazon. Prime lets you borrow books but you can only have so many at a time and you don't get to keep them so I have not really used that much. :P

      Do you subscribe to the Kindle Unlimited service then? Or just the normal Prime?

    4. Rex705


      I just have the normal Prime. That's expensive enough for me so I have not signed up for Kindle Unlimited. It's video games all over again with an endless and ever-growing backlog lol.

  21. Amazon link This was a bit painful to read and I had to force myself to the end. I don't plan on continuing the series. I really hated the main character. I'm up to 423 books on kindle now all free.
  22. I'm excited for Overload to come out in May it's going to be epic. I should marathon Descent 1-3 to get ready for Overload.
  23. Happy B-day me!

      Happy Birthday Rex! Hope you have an awesome day! :D

  24. It's been forever since I read a book, but with all these freebies I am getting in newsletters currently up to 199 I figured I should start. Amazon link Pretty cool book the first in a series. The Red series follows China, The White series follows Russia and the Blue series follows America as chaos rains down from the skies.

    What are your 2018 resolutions?

    I used to make resolutions back in the day but then I just never end up doing it so why bother? Like maybe I'll finally write that book or finally learn Japanese that I spent over $600 on or all those Udemy courses I got to learn how to make games or actually play the piles and piles of games I wasted all my money on all my life that are still in the wrapper. Nah that's never going to happen.
