• BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic r/wallstreetbets and Gamestonk. on the GameStop board

    The notion that "underdogs" are getting rich on this makes me laugh. Assuming they got in at the very beginning, somebody would have had to invest (and been willing to lose) north of $50,000 to see an...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic What the heck is going on with Gran Turismo and why aren't people talking about it?. on the Gran Turismo board

    I remember GT1, GT2, and GT3 so fondly. After searching all over town to find a copy for sale, I played GT1 on my little brother's Playstation when I was home from college. Once I'd gotten my own Play...

    A few points and then I'll bow out, because I can see that we disagree.I watched the video that was posted and I don't recall anything overt about joining the military. It was just a guy talking mostl...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic Gamespot doing literal propaganda for the US Army. on the General Discussion board

    Well okay, I guess. Thanks for explaining, but I still don't see what all the fuss is about. Video games are not (and never have been) strictly for children. That's a stigma that video game enthusi...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic Gamespot doing literal propaganda for the US Army. on the General Discussion board

    I'm not sure I understand why there's so much outrage around this. It's marketing, and to me, this comes across as an ad just like any other. "Be all that you can be" ads have been around for as lon...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic DOOM Eternal Impressions Thread. on the Doom Eternal board

    I loved Doom 2016 and I've been looking forward to this.Then I read all these comments and got a little discouraged. I'm not sure I'm into the idea of weak points, platforming, and limited ammo.But t...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic How do you eat your Oreos?. on the Off-Topic board

    If I'm not in a hurry, I tend to split two Oreos, combine the frosted sides into a sort of homemade "double-stuff," and then typically eat that in one bite. I've done this with every variety of Oreo ...

    @rlfiredancer: I used this tool to add an editable "Title" column to a specific file type in Windows Explorer. With a little poking around and/or experimentation, you may be able to add an easily edi...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic Most Disappointing Game of the Decade?. on the General Discussion board

    I feel like I'm generally well-informed enough that I don't end up being disappointed by too many games. I've never played most of the games listed here so far, and if I did, I bought them dirt cheap...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic Have you seen any good martial arts films in the last few years?. on the Off-Topic board

    @nutter: I may have to give The Night Come For Us another shot. On paper, it should be right up my alley. It's possible that I just wasn't in the right mood for it on the day that I watched it.

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic Have you seen any good martial arts films in the last few years?. on the Off-Topic board

    I found The Night Comes For Us to be wildly overrated. The fights were so drawn out and over the top that I actually found myself getting bored.I did like Triple Threat though, and in general, I find...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic Best strategy games for a beginner?. on the General Discussion board

    The game that got me started on strategy games 2+ decades ago was Master of Orion II. I'm a little hesitant to suggest something so dated, but it holds a special place in my heart and I still remembe...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic Should we have a law about 'How Big' a domestic cat can be. on the General Discussion board

    Dog person here. I would not be a fan of laws on this kind of thing. It's not difficult to imagine lawmakers making the jump from large cats to large dogs, and then I have a problem. The only thing...

  • BaconHound posted a message in the forum topic Your Most Anticipated Game of 2020?. on the General Discussion board

    I picked Doom, but it was a tough choice between that and Cyberpunk. For me, those two are head and shoulders above everything else on the list.

    If we're talking about songs that actually get played during the Christmas season, then this is the right answer. What an awful, awful song. I've never heard of some of this other stuff you guys are d...

    Outer Wilds. It was highly praised when it came out, and it looked interesting. I found it charming and well made, but the gameplay loop just didn't click with me. I still want to like it or maybe ...
