@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.


How many Facebook/social networking "friends" do you have?

On my facebook right now, it tells me I have 347 friends.


Of those I probably regularly interact/contact 60 - 70 of them in a given month.

so you're less popular than me eh


nah in actuality I'd say you're way better off, quality > quantity haha. as in, I've become acquainted with a LOT of people, but I only regularly interact/contact with maybe a dozen or less. There are people who I talk to once in a while (like you; sometimes we talk a lot, other times we get busy and don't talk for a week or two), people I talk to once in a long while (e.g. old friends/people I don't see or whatever, my brother(s) since we're not that close...), and people I talk to in group chats (if you can really call that talking, lol). Group chats aside, I'd say I got around 10 people for the "once in a while" category and another 10 in the category after that, so really it's not a lot.


Sadly it seems like I'm usually the only one really trying to keep up relationships, with some exceptions, lol. And even I get busy/slack off and whatnot: I mean, it's hard to text someone when I don't have a reason to, haha. I've got my own things to do. XP

None of my facebook friends are people I know on the internet.


Oh, wait, never mind. I have 2 internet friends on facebook lol. The rest are church people and family that I honestly don't know much about. Oh, and a couple of friends who befriended me after my mom died. I guess the real thing is that my mom taught me to be super paranoid on the internet, and never give out my location/real name etc. I still hold true to that, and only very close internet friends get to be facebook friends with me, lol.


I don't like facebook much, though. I browse it when I get bored. It could be a very handy tool for keeping you in touch with friends and such, but usually it's just full of pictures and memes that try to guilt you into sharing. "THIS BABY WILL DIE IF YOU DO NOT SHARE THIS POST" "IF YOU ARE A TRUE FRIEND, YOU WILL LIKE AND SHARE THIS POST" "IF YOU SHARE THIS POST, YOU WILL FIND $100 IN THE NEXT FIVE MINUTES" or the best one: "95% of people don't care about sick starving children. If you are one of that 5% that cares, share this post. If you are part of that 95%, continue scrolling."


If I agree with an image, I will freaking share it on my own will, WITHOUT you telling me to. Thank you very much.


Facebook is also horribly organized. Just try and find that one post you saw the other day. It's like finding a needle in a haystack. It was better back when we had the choice of having all the posts organized by DATE. Nowadays, they've removed that and it's just "most popular." Hmph.

oh man, those posts


those chain posts/e-mails/whatever are sooo annoying lol. been a thing for a while though, whether it's an e-mail or text or whatever.


and yeah, Facebook organization isn't great, but thankfully I don't really use it anymore, lol. Actually, I finally finished the slow process of removing all the activity from my feed, so my timeline is like, completely blank. All you have is super basic info and an old photo, lol. I'm thinking of finally using it just to add people I know IRL as friends so I have some kind of contact with them if I ever feel like it or whatever, but yeah, in general Facebook is kinda >___>' for me lol
