    J4MES OX4D got a reaction from Luseth in Games we can no longer play   
    MAG was a pretty decent and highly ambitious title but its reliance on needing 250 players a server whilst the game was competing massively with Modern Warfare 2 was just asking way too much. Bad Company 2 and Black Ops really added insult to injury and then Battlefield 3 finished it off almost. 
     
    There is quite a few games that you can't get (legitimately) anymore which are bloody iconic - No One Lives Forever, Project IGI, Black and White and Battlefield 2142 are just a few. Games like the OG GTA trilogy have also been replaced with the Defective Edition and ones like The Sims 1+2 have been placed with the newer releases. 
     
    I also think overwriting CSGO and Overwatch were terrible decisions especially the latter which completely replaced a legendary game for a hugely inferior sequel built purely on greed and silly decisions. A full legacy version of CSGO should've been left behind but now all traces of it have been removed essentially minus a watered-down backdoor version. 
     
    Thank god for emulation!

    There is a lot of discussion around video games and the preservation of them, it got me thinking of MAG, it was an FPS on the PS3 that had an insane number of players. However they shut it down (maybe prematurely) and it just made me think about games that are no longer playable no matter what you do i.e. emulation or private servers etc. Another that I think of is Wildstar, it was an MMO that to me had a lot of potential but it never quite got the player numbers I don't think.
     
    Are there any that you can think of that you look back on fondly?

    Perfect Dark on the 360 was a monumental disappointment. I think they should've remade the original but I'm still interested to see what a new game will bring.

    The last one on Xbox 360 that came out with the console at launch looked amazing at the time but the gameplay and shooting was really poor. It does have that similar feeling, looks visually decent but that gunplay didn't fill me with any confidence it will be any better than the one years ago. Lets see what the reviews say when they come out. I feel like it will drop in the sale very quickly, but I hope I'm wrong for the developers sake.

    J4MES OX4D got a reaction from Antpool84 in Gears of War: E-Day   
    Last year I replayed the first two games which was nice. I played 3 back in the day but don't remember much about it but 4 was disappointing. I did enjoy 5 but I'm not sure the open world benefitted it all that much when compared to more linear-based missions. This will be interesting especially as a prequel which is definitely a good narrative choice as I don't think they could've done another one as a continuation.

    Ive always loved the Gears games and they were the main reasons i got an Xbox each time they released on the new generations of consoles. This was a great trailer and I am so happy it's going back to Marcus and Dom (although it would be good to eventually get a Gears 6 to finish off the new story)! Just means i'm going to have to get an xbox again when this finally releases 🤦‍♂️😂 Can't wait!!!!

    I CANT BELIEVE THIS IS REAL!! 
     
    As a huge Gears fan, this is a dream game for me!! Don’t get me wrong, I was hoping and expecting Gears 6, and I still want that game eventually, but I am so hyped for this prequel! 
     
    I have a lot of questions such as what and who are they going to use as the ‘main boss’, it obviously can’t be RAAM. Also, the first Gears game starts with Marcus in prison, so will this game end with that happening? It’s 14 years before the original game so I assume not, and assume it will focus on the first few days after E-Day?  
     
    Either way, from the trailer it looks like they may be going back to the series roots and I really hope they are. Hearing the Mad world tones in the trailer gave me serious goosebumps! 
     
    Couldn’t be more hyped for this game!!!

    I think this looks really cool! I have no history with Perfect Dark but I’m definitely interested in this one! It definitely has the potential to be one those games that looks a lot better than it actually plays, but I’m hopeful it’ll be a good time!

    Thats where I sit abit. Fantastic they've created something like this to see how far they can push the boundaries of games. Just not sure it would actually be enjoyable in any way.

    Just been released on Steam in early access and is another one of those photorealistic shooters like Unrecord. 
     
    Not really interested but I hope one day a major developer utilises such aesthetics and makes a proper military-type sim out of it. We'll probably see more of these bordering on asset flips and whilst it's encouraging to see the potential, I think many will struggle to deliver a worthwhile concept over the visuals.
