Must.....play.....Red Dead.

It's been at least a month since I played, and with The Show coming out, I worry I'll never finish it.

Just skip the show. Not enough changes to justify year-to-year purchases. Plus, people do a pretty good job of keeping rosters current in the previous year's version. By not getting it last year or this year, that's what, $104 (I take advantage of this rewards system at Best Buy my friends have where you get 20% off games) back in my pocket?

I didn't buy it last year, so this is my year to do it.

E3 is a bit weird with Sony not there and EA not really doing a press conference, but still some cool stuff.

For one, this:

And this looks cool, although I have no idea what it is:

Guys I just discovered The Golf Club 2019 and my life is changed. Finally a decent golf game since the TW series came to a close (don't come at me with Rory, that game is hot trash).

Why should you try TGC2019?

  1. Fully customizable characters
  2. Massive online community
  3. Said online community creates tons of real courses
  4. You can do careers with 4-day tournaments and custom outfits on each day of those tournaments
  5. You can join online "leagues"
  6. The massive online community likes to provide real stakes for tournaments
  7. It's fun as fuck.

The end.

I have both TGC and TGC 2 and it's insanely hard. You mostly shoot scores you would in real life. That said, I'm waiting for TGC 2020 and hopefully more real courses. Is this one as hard as the first two? In those games if you shoot 75 on a par 72 that's really good, and the rough and bunkers are way too penal. If you miss the fairway it's impossible to get a GIR, or even hit a straight shot.

Control is a very fun game. I highly recommend it.

I keep hearing that. I will have to pick this one up soon. It reminds me of Infamous based on the gameplay I've seen.

Anyone who is currently or in the process of building a gaming PC can get Control and the new Wolfenstein games as free downloads if you buy a new Nvidia card.  I recently built two gaming computers for my two kids with Nvidia cards (GTX 2070’s) and noticed these free games came with the GPU’s.

MLB 19 The Show will be one of the FREE games of October for PS+ members. Pretty stoked. I haven't bought The Show since 2017, partly because they just don't improve enough anymore and also because I was too disgusted with the Sox off-season this year to want to get that brand new roster with Yonder fucking Alonso on it.

I'll be buying MLB 20 The Show next March though, so this will get me through the winter.

A-fucking-men. I felt the exact same way. Both of your reasons. Haven't gotten it since 2017 either and it feels good having the extra ~$130 in the pocket (by not buying 18 or 19). I will also be buying next year.

The other game is The Last of Remastered.  That’s an insane PS+ month.

I'm not buying sports video games every year anymore. I bought Show, Madden and NHL this year and I've decided that it's going to be an every couple years thing and I'm going to stagger them. Next year madden, in 2021 the Show, in 2022 NHL and so on. I don't play enough to justify the cost every year. With the Show and Madden they do a good job in the Roster Vault. I'm really bummed NHL doesn't have one because that's the one I'd enjoy having a roster vault the most in. I'm a sucker for hockey nostalgia. I MIGHT continue to buy NHL every year because I have a metric ton of fun with those. If I was able to drive and work this fall/winter, I wouldn't have purchased Madden and NHL.

I was using an ancient (by PC hardware standards) AMD CPU (it was a FX-8320 I think) with a GTX 1070 and I finally quit putting it off and properly upgraded to a Ryzen 7 3800x. Man, I had no idea how much I was bottlenecking my card, I can run just about anything in 1440p at the highest settings at ~70 FPS (except stuff that's really demanding, like Quantum Break or Forza, those are low 50s unless I step it down a little).

I want to upgrade my card but it's not a pressing need at the moment especially considering the stuff in the range to make the performance bump worth it for me is at least like $700

The Show 19 is free in October if you have PS Plus

I fucked both my thumbs up late June at work and have been off since.  Have been playing heavy modded X-Com 2, Total War: Warhammer 2, and Total War: 3 Kingdoms since I couldn't do any fast twitch games with a cast on one hand and brace on the other.

What is out console wise right now?  Anybody play the new Borderlands?  I was given the blessing to start lifting, shooting, and playing video games again last week lol.

So I just recently found out that if you have a PS4 that's no longer operable (like it won't even boot up or turn on or whatever) and you don't have any of your game data saved anywhere else, you are completely and utterly fucked.

If you take the HDD out of the old PS4 and put it into a new PS4, it will format it. You can't plug it into a computer and copy the data that way either because it's encrypted. Literally the only way to get the data is through the PS4 itself.

So, as a PSA to any fellow gamers out there, back up your data to an external drive or to the cloud (via the PSN) on a regular basis.
