This looks so good!

I really miss playing this game.

It’s wrong that you can automatically fast travel, though…A major part of the game, was the exploration and advancement…You always had to travel manually on foot, horse, etc, to any destination before it became available in fast travel. You get to discover the world this way.

“In 1989, parents’ concerns for their children’s video game habits were at an all-time high. One eclectic inventor thought he had the perfect solution: Homework First. It was a literal lock that blocked the cartridge slot of the Nintendo Entertainment System. Was Homework First the ultimate solution to Nintenditis? Learn the story behind the first parental control system for video games.”

Evil!…Evil, I Tell You!

The Story of the ESRB – Gaming Historian…


….

Date: December 14, 2020

“Gaming Historian provides a history of the ESRB’s creation. In the early 90’s, there was a growing concern from the public about violent entertainment. When the government began seeing footage of graphic video games, they stepped in with an ultimatum for the industry: Regulate yourselves, or we’ll do it for you.”

Yes…They’ve been obsessed with pixels and ideas for a very long time.

The old assertion…”It’s threatening children”…as usual.

Sad fact…none of these outraged zealots even knew what they were talking about…

…Their arguments have subsequently fallen apart, as more research has been done on the very question of psychological effects of video games on kids.

01) Hollywood DOOMSDAY – Disney CANCELS Theaters


“Doomsday for Hollywood has come and it came from one company. Disney essentially cancelled theaters for the rest of 2020 and the rest of Hollywood will follow suit. Shutting down one of the main streams of revenue. This is only one of Tinsel Town’s troubles.”

01) Naughty Microsoft Bought Smelly Bethesda (The Jimquisition)


“Naughty, cheeky Microsoft has purchased smelly, old, dirty, old Bethesda. Obviously, it’s got Bethesda’s parent company Zenimax as well. Zenimax is a toilet.

There’s plenty to talk about here, from Zenimax and Bethesda’s history as corporate bullies to the benefits Microsoft will see as we enter a new generation and the Xbox Series faces off against the PS5.

Also, we are under the sea!”

PS5 Pre-Ordering Is A Stupid Disaster…

01) PS5 Pre-Ordering Is A Stupid Disaster


“The PlayStation 5 is proving difficult to order, and neither Sony nor retailers have helped. Pre-orders were meant to go live on Thursday, September 17th. Instead, they just sorta went live whenever, and the result has been anarchic.

Because nothing in the so-called “AAA” industry is ever simple, customers simply trying to reserve a console have been confused with weird lockouts, surprise listings, and Sony’s failure to communicate information.

Just another day in games!

I’m thinking…a massive portion of the human population is unemployed…economies are in the toilet…Sony does not know what the future has in store, for them and their new console…This is likely why they put the breaks on production and distribution.

They’d have possibly been better off waiting for all of this to be over, instead of dumping a console on the market…for which support is in question.

Sounds crazy to say that about a PS5…but nobody is going to make and publish games they cannot profit from.

New Generation, New Nonsense (The Jimquisition)…

01) New Generation, New Nonsense (The Jimquisition)


“We’re fast approaching a new generation of consoles, and we don’t even know what they’ll cost or when they’ll come out. But we DO know that Sony might allow you to preorder one from them if you’re very good.

As we hurtle toward next-gen in a year where people literally don’t have money, we’re already drowning in total nonsense. Because this is the game industry – straightforward behavior and sensible commerce went out to lunch years ago.”

I’m still on my PS3…and happy enough with it, but…yeah…Maybe a PS4 will finally be affordable?

The invitation only pre orders for PS5, sound crazy.
