  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Do you ever worry about the state of gaming? on the Games Discussion board.

    I've given up on gaming. Just a bunch of near-identical games, doesn't even matter what genre it is there days. They all look and play the same. As far as the big publishers are concerned, us guy...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Pope Francis Excommunicates the Mafia on the Off-Topic Discussion board.

    Funny because if you look at the history of the Vatican they make organized crime guys like like freakin' angels in comparison. They were truly one of the most corrupt and bloodthirsty outfits in th...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic U.S. Moves to Stop Surge in Illegal Immigration. on the Off-Topic Discussion board.

    So like one illegal immigrant out of a thousand will now be detained for a bit. That should get the job done.

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Which was worst for you? Middle School or High School? on the Off-Topic Discussion board.

    I loved high school because I finally came out of my shell and made a lot of friends and did plenty of partying. I hated middle school though.

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Is Japan the greatest country ever? on the Off-Topic Discussion board.

    There are a lot of good things about Japan, like just how freakin' nuts it is, but there are plenty of bad things too. In Tokyo the cost of a closet (which they call an apartment) is absurd, girls o...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Phil Fish: YouTubers need to give a huge cut to devs on the System Wars board.

    You need to get about a trillion hits on your YouTube video to make five bucks lol. And this guy is actually concerned about this?

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic For those that hate FPS games.. on the Games Discussion board.

    I don't like them because the entire gameplay consists of panning the camera around, putting the crosshairs on the guy, and pressing the button. Repeat 1,000 times, after having done the exact same th...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic PC: My favorite games, what're yours? on the Games Discussion board.

    About all I play on my PC is Skyrim. Always downloading new mod's and doing another playthrough.

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Good horror games for a crappy computer. on the Games Discussion board.

    Well there's Bloodrayne 2. I didn't find it scary at all but it does have vampires and lots of blood.

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic ¿What do you think about realistic graphics? on the Games Discussion board.

    I'm more concerned with the art design than the pixel count. The most lifelike graphics in the world don't impress me at all if they're used to render a dull gray city. Give me a gorgeous, creative...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic The Biggest disappointment on a game you waited for ? on the Games Discussion board.

    Probably GT5. It spent 5 years in development and had the second highest budget of any game made at that time. The developer had it hyped up to be the second coming of Christ. At launch it was just...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Do you think Gamespot sucks now? on the Games Discussion board.

    I barely even come here anymore. And when I do it's just for the forums. I have no interest in the main site. I've learned from years of experience that their reviews are not a useful tool when it...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic old school games vs new school games ? on the Games Discussion board.

    I'm 100% single-player, I guess that makes me as old-fashioned as a Model T. I'm very interested in some upcoming games, I'll get the next Fallout, Elder Scrolls and Gran Turismo at launch, and any ...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic G4 is now officaly dead rip on the Games Discussion board.

    Used to love that channel when it was Tech TV. It turned into just another generic cable channel though. I caught Xplay once in a blue moon but the game reviews seemed like they were only about 10%...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Do you game with your wife / girlfriend? on the Games Discussion board.

    My wife plays a few games. She liked Motorstorm Pacific Rift and now we got the Jak and Daxter HD collection and she's playing Precursor Legacy. She's funny - "Ill get this #%$#* if it's the last t...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic is the wii u even relivent? on the Games Discussion board.

    It's only relevant as a platform for Nintendo exclusives. Nobody thinks of it as anything more than that anymore.

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Why do people have to buy a console when it first comes out? on the Games Discussion board.

    Because each individual makes their own cost/benefit analysis. A lot of people are excited enough about the new consoles to buy one at launch, while others will wait a year or two. Others won't get ...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Naughty Dog's PS4 Engine just now getting up and running on the Games Discussion board.

    Where's Titanfall and Halo and Gears of War and Fable? If these AAA Microsoft studios are struggling to come out with games in a timely fashion, what exactly does this mean for the Xbox One exclusive ...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic Isn't it quite easy to shut up the master race of PC on the Games Discussion board.

    On PC things like graphics resolution and anti-aliasing are adjustable. You can turn them up as high as your machine can handle - a good gaming PC can basically make a PS3 game look as good as a PS4...

  • Jackc8 posted a message in the forum topic How does one simply prefer story over gameplay? on the Games Discussion board.

    I'm usually surprised with how much I can enjoy a game that's got downright bad gameplay. Like Final Fantasy XIII - the gameplay consisted of pressing a single button (for the most part). Yet I end...
