You guys know how this works. Don't get too rowdy, or the spooky scary skeletons might get you.

As much as how horror games could go by me,I checked my current backlog,turns empty in the taste,I still got my PS3 running even after it's been abandoned for 1 1/2 year.

In other news,I just got my brand new NNID,and it's D_Smash50,PM for Friend Code,as I'm a more of a selective person.

It was awesome and gruesome at the same time when I played it on PS4 last year. It's good, just short though.

@ladyblue: it's a poor man's Last of Us and Resident Evil 4. There's plenty of excitement of trying to see what scenario Mikami thinks of next, but there's lots of poor gameplay ideas and baffling design choices from one of gaming's best.

I'm about ten chapters in, which is right about before where the game goes downhill apparently. It's pretty decent so far.

I'm so fucking tired already from this semester and it has only been a month and a half. Don't feel like playing any horror game too. Just MGSV.

Also watching fear the walking dead and it's not so bad but also not so good. It's average but I like how they set up the zombie scenes. It's the talking and characters that feel lacking. Really mediocre in that regard.

Going to replay Dead Space 1/2 since those are my favorite horror games since it is October. Don't play Dead Space 3, it ain't scary and it's the worst in the series. Oh and the Anime Dead Space version is a guilty pleasure for me :P

My pioneer receiver went out this morning. No more speakers for a while until I can find a cheap replacement. Only had it for 4 years.

@Blabadon: You mean winner?

This fake controversy around a rule that even the NFL refs clearly don't even know does little to take away from what an amazing play Kam made against one of the NFL's all time great receivers. He saved Seattle's season and I am high on Seahawk victory. The best high in the world.

Winner.

I'm pretty sure the letter-boxing has been patched out, not sure if the camera has been changed or not, but if you hated it it's probably not worth a re-visit. Besides if you haven't finished RE4 yet (the ****?), you're better off playing that anyway.

You've not once finished RE4 in its 10 years on the market?

I guess Bloodborne and Shin Megami Tensei qualify as horror.

Anyone that's followed the NFC West know that it's no fluke. Rams are legit, they always torture Seattle.

Tried playing Soma, was too scared. Sad thing is I've played games that were more "I'm not gonna play this alone" than Soma.

It ain't that old, only a 2011 model. Looked fine but I replaced it anyway. I can use the method to turn power back on after an overload/protection shutdown and then power off/on normally but anytime it's on for more than 3 seconds it'll just turn off. Something is tripping the Pioneer's protection circuit and I can't figure out what since everything is unplugged.

God that's annoying, only a 2011, huh? I've got an older Pioneer that's been great but it's developed a 'humming' noise that's really noticeable during times when the music, movie, or game are quiet. I'm looking to replace it sometime soon, it doesn't have hdmi ports but I can still get 5.1 using digital optical from my TV to the receiver so I've been dragging my feet. One of these days though.

Don't even know if I got an extended warranty with it. Forgot where I kept the receipts. Also have an old JVC RX-5020 that's kinda old, only DTS and DD support with no HDMI either. Still kicking just fine. Headphones are impossible to use with it because it buzzes like crazy. That's kept with my PC though while the Pioneer was in the family room.

Found someone on Craigslist selling two (mostly working) Onkyo TX-SR508s for $60, which is perfect because I had the same model years ago before I broke it (spilled water on it.) Gonna see about picking those up and have myself a DIY project to get one or two of these working.

@ChubbyGuy40: I always forget about Craigslist, I'll have to peruse it once I start getting serious about upgrading. I hope those Onkyo's work out for you, $60 is a steal.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but figured System Wars would probably get some use out of this feature. Reposting what Klunt posted in the bugs & feedback forum:

A new privacy setting will show up on your profile today.

You now have the ability to block users you are not following from writing on your wall or PM'ing you.

It is off by default.

Some further detail:

  • This will not prevent comments on blogs or user reviews by unfollowed members
  • This will also not prevent unfollowed members from being able to see your profile page, comments, forum posts, user reviews, etc.
  • This will also not prevent unfollowed members from interacting with you in comments or forum posts
  • This option does not apply to mods/staff (as in, if a moderator or staff member is not being followed by someone, they will still be able to post on your wall)

Several weeks down the line we'll also be releasing the ability to entirely block a specific member from communicating with you.

instead of doing certain objectives and finishing games on harder difficulties to unlock costumes, game developers now make you pay if you want them.

damn it KONAMI.
