    So...my wife wakes me up this morning and asks, "What's the name of the new Xbox coming out?" and I reply that it's called the Xbox One X, half asleep still. Then she says great, cause I just won one! She put in an instant win entry from Taco Bell and it was a winner! Now we will will have two One X's in the house. We've decided to give it to our son for his senior year graduation gift. It should make him one happy graduate!

    Digging through some files earlier and found these. Completely forgot about this. They say never meet your hero, you will be disappointed. In this case, boy were they wrong. Fun times in Vegas. They spent as much time in the lobby meeting fans and taking pictures as they did on stage. Love me some Penn and Teller.

    It is a testament to how much I love TAG that it is a Saturday morning, my kid and wife are still asleep, I could be playing Zelda but I choose to share the love of Switch with you guys instead. This one is for you @BDaddyK I have spent roughly 3 hours playing with Nintendo's newest creation and my overall impression is that the Switch is a solid piece of portable hardware that is slightly underbaked at launch but has remarkable potential. Whether it will mark a recovery from the misstep of the Wii U and bring back the fascination that the general public had with the Wii remains to be seen but, slight hardware problems aside, I feel it is off to a great start. Out of the box the Switch is remarkably simple to set up. You go through a couple of screens to connect and remove the joy cons, set up wi-fi, and that is about it. In the past Nintendo has layered on their patented charm and while that is often appreciated and makes things feel magical it is clear from the instant you pull the Switch out of the box that Nintendo wants to make things understated and simple so that you can get right to playing. The OS is stripped down. You don't even get playful music on the dash or the eshop. You aren't inundated with a ton of options either. Front and center are the game tiles (assuming you have a cart in the system). This stripped down nature makes everything snappy and quick. Going from game to dashboard to settings to whatever is so fast it puts the Xbox One dash to shame. I appreciate this no-nonsense approach and some might interpret it as a sign that the Switch was rushed to market but I like to think of it as the end of the era of Nintendo trying to treat us all like children and hand hold us through everything. What about the hardware itself? Well, it is small. In a good way. It feels great to hold. The joy cons when attached to the system feel natural and satisfying. When the system is docked I prefer the pro controller over the joy con grip controller but either way works fine. Overall Nintendo has succeeded in making a portable system that works equally well as a home console. It certainly isn't as powerful as its competition when attached to a tv but it is more than adequate (saying it is about one notch up from a 360 might be underselling it but that is kinda the ballpark). When on the go, however, the Switch is unparalleled. Typically handheld systems are solitary affairs. Something to do on the plane or bus to make getting from point A to B bearable. But she Switch is more than that. It makes portable systems social. Everywhere you go you have a 2nd controller with you. I took the system to work yesterday and we played Fast RMX split screen with the joy cons and it felt great. Sure the screen is small but who cares when you can be doing couch co-op from the top of Mt. Everest. Snipper Clips also went over well with my co-workers. The joy cons might be small but the recall the original NES controllers and handing one to someone, even if they aren't a typical gamer, is met with instant familiarity. The hardware is solid and doesn't feel cheap at all but it should be said that I don't think this is a device for kids to handle without adult supervision. I mean you could back over a 2DS with a truck and not have to worry about it but the Switch, while solid, doesn't feel as kid proof as everything Nintendo has ever produced. Oh and a word of warning from a dumbass that did this on his first try...the bumper attachments on the joy cons only work if you put them on one way but you can totally slip it on the wrong way if you aren't paying attention and it locks into place and it nearly impossible to get off without breaking the damn thing. Luckily I wasn't the only person to do this and there are youtube videos out there describing how to remove it without damaging the controller. It feels like a big oversight in the design and I can't help but think that Nintendo will revise these things as soon as possible. Honestly it is worse than the Wii-mote slippage that led to Nintendo sending out free Wii-mote condoms to everyone. So what about the games? I haven't had any time to do a full play through of anything so I will just sum them up quickly. Fast RMX is futuristic racer that is a cross between Wipeout and Ikaruga with a F-Zero GX aesthetic. It is a fast, beautiful, and really well made indie title that is certainly punching above its weight. Online multiplayer works seamlessly. Local multiplayer does also and, as I mentioned previously, split screen with joy cons on the go is pretty awesome. Snipper Clips is a 2 to 4 player couch co-op puzzle game that might just be the way you sell your wife on letting you get a Switch. It oozes charm and the puzzles are well thought out. Playing with your SO could either serve as a bonding experience or end in divorce (whatever works for you). At the $20 price point both games are worth the purchase to help flesh out the somewhat paltry launch line up. And that brings us to why you really want to purchase this system in the first place...Zelda. I have only played for a couple of hours at this point so I am not ready to call BoTW the greatest game every made yet but I can say that this game is the departure from the Zelda formula that the franchise has needed ever since it went 3D. Perhaps the biggest and most appreciated aspect of this is the lack of hand-holding. You aren't going to spend your first 5 hours running around a safe village being forced over and over to carry barrels just in case you forgot how to push the A button. Instead you are thrust into an open world and immediately invited to explore. Whenever you encounter something new you are greeted with a quick image that tells you how to use it but that is it. No long tutorials. No heavy handed exposition. Just you and your wits. It is fun to discover a new move you didn't know Link could do. There are many ways to approach and fight enemies. Hell you can even spend your time climbing or cutting down trees if you want. It is a game of exploration and the sense of discovery is extremely rewarding. For twenty years we have been asking Nintendo to treat us like adults while still letting us feel the wonder of being a kid. This Zelda delivers on that big time. I can't wait to jump back into that world and learn its secrets. Also being able to pick it up off the dock and carry Zelda to bed with me is a major plus. Ok. My kid is awake now and I have totally squandered my precious early morning play time. I will chime in on discord or in this thread with other observations as I get more time with the system. Feel free to ask me questions if you like. I will end by saying that I can understand why someone would want to hold off on getting a Switch at this point but if you are on the fence you don't have to be shy about getting one. It is a solid system that is sure to bring you lots of enjoyment.

    It's almost been a year since I first joined, and I have to confess that I wish I stumbled on you guys much sooner. Every other old game community I've been in has died at this point except this one. Standing the test of time means something. But all good things must come to an end, and that means my gaming passion. I'm not getting better at it (the contrary is the case), I'm not having more fun with each new game (I'm getting grumpier with each release), and what time I could have spent bettering myself IRL I instead chose to spend trying (and forever failing) to be an online l33t badass. I think it's time for me to walk away from the hobby and fix my own life rather than use it as the permanent escape from it that it has become. So, adios amigos. You can't have my stuff (unless you want to buy it, heheheh). I've had the best gaming year with ya'll that I've had in a while. Thanks for that. This community really is one in a million, even if Discord did kill the forums. o7

    As it turns out, i find this bit hard..like being back in school. Hello I'm Lee, Leanne or Nixslee (PS4) I've been a gamer eva since my brother started D&D and i got hold of his books. Books full of magic and monsters..obviously. And being an older brother he pushed me out his room and never did teach me how to play. My grammar is terrible, so please forgive my spelling errors. I'm reaching out because as much as i love my friends, they don't get that to me playing Witcher or Mass effect is my out. Life is too hectic to be serious all the time. I'm 38 and a nurse in Australia. So hi and i hope to get to know you all soon.

    On what planet was the SNES mediocre or the N64 a flop? I agree that everything past the N64 was a steaming pile of shit and this new console looks to be more of the same but c'mon bro. Just say you were a Sega kid and move along but don't slip these opinions in as if they're facts.

    Hey guys! This post is to make the Halo FFA tournament official. We will be starting next week on Halo Night (Thursday, July 20th). The ground rules will be outlined below. We will need to pick a time that all of us will be able to be on, even if only for one match. If you have any suggestions of concerns please comment @CaptainToay43 on either here on the Discord #halo channel (link below). General rules The number of rounds played will be determined by the number of people who opt into the tournament Each person will get to choose BOTH the map and the game type (whatever your heart desires). Please test the map before we play on it to be sure it isn't laggy The winner will be determined by the number of kills throughout the entire tournament Each person will have their lowest 2 scores removed from their record This is just in case someone can't make it for a night, they aren't automatically removed from contention I will be keeping track of the kill total on a Google Sheets spreadsheet (will post link once I finish it) using Halo Carnage for the stats (unless someone knows of a better site)\. If any of you have suggestions or see something that I might have left out from the original idea please let me know. Happy Hunting! https://discord.gg/cf4fr7f Stats https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LcalMq83JdW-rdhzOsX2s_A1Ip2kGTEVYVtwDFHtY7c/edit?usp=sharing

    So I was playing some TitanFall2 last night and, was having a very poor showing (I think I only killed 3 grunts in a game). Then I was magically (and completely randomly) put into a party full of people who said they were from a group called TAG. All of a sudden my game started to improve, I was no longer at the bottom of the scoreboard, and was on the winning team. They were very helpful and friendly, so I said I would look this group up in the morning. So I just want to say thanks to, I hope I remember these names correctly: Harvik, Hapless, Toy, and Aurthrpt1. Thanks for letting me play guys, you made this ol' derelict gamers night. P.S. They also mentioned something about a Halo on thursday, I'm not sure what that is but it sounds like they were excited about it, so maybe I could learn that next

    If it's a hiatus I can't let my brain know lol. But my consoles are gone. I rarely make good decisions in life but so far my gaming abstinence has done me good: I scored a much needed raise and lost 15 pounds thus far. I'm chillin' today as I wait to travel early in the morning tomorrow for additional job training. Also a big thank you to everyone as well. Means a lot!

    ...in JJ's hello thread. He said joined for Achilles, and that is why I joined, to get into a spartan company. But it got me thinking that it was probably around this time that 343 released the Achilles. So went and checked my profile and sure enough, one year ago tomorrow, January 21st, is when I joined tag. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO GET THOSE 365 DAMNED DAYS BACK YOU SOB'S!!! Actually, now that I think about it, it has been pretty good times, even if you all just use me for target practice all the time. Hope year 2 is just as fun.

    So Christmas morning I was opening the present my wife got for me (and I mean actual gift, this isn't a euphemism). It had arrived just before Christmas and was still in all the overpack and shipping boxes. I couldn't tell what it was , I just kept opening the next box....and then this happened. Now this may not be the best packaging of an item, but when a box has it's own fanfare when you break the seals and remove the top, well it has to be the best designed thing ever. And I don't think I'm exaggerating. (Please, please, please let this link work) https://youtu.be/kq3QJUDINek

    30 people signed up, & that's counting the people to volunteered for things (captains, LTs, the medals, what event goes when, & so on). Basically, that's 10 people per team going by the 3 teams model we've been using over the years. Now put "everyday life issues" into the equation (Jobs, family issues, can't make a game a certain day or days for whatever reason... & so forth) & that number probably drops to about 6 per team. Keep in mind that up until this year we've usually had, on average, in the mid to high 70s as far as players went & there have been entire nights when we couldn't have an event or events because numbers were so low (usually the Fighting Game events, mind you). It's at times like that, that I really hated being the TAG Games yearly summary guy. I wonder if this is what the IRS guy who has to audit their own family feels like.

    Hey everybody. Just thought I'd share a few videos I found that do a good job of explaining the leveling system in Destiny 2 for those who are interested in getting ready for the raid and other end game content. The end-game leveling system is a bit different from Destiny 1 and not everyone knows how it works (or at the very least, I didn't before I watched these videos). These videos come from pillar of the YouTube Destiny community, Rick Kackis, so credit where it's due. Quick Summary - End game leveling in Destiny 2 revolves around the acquisition of so called "Powerful Gear". These are legendary engrams that can decode at light levels above 265. This video contains a brief rundown of how to get it. Short answer, join the TAG clan for your platform (PS4, Xbox, PC) ASAP, finish Cayde-6's Quest Line to set up patrol beacons, and complete Lord Shax's Crucible Milestone. The first will allow you to get rewarded whenever the clan levels up. The second will open up the weekly "Flashpoint" planet. Complete Lost Sectors and Public Events on that planet to complete the Flashpoint and report back to Cayde-6 for your Powerful Gear. The third will allow Powerful Gear to drop from Crucible matches. This video deals with the subject of Weapon and Armor Mods. Mods, especially legendary mods, play a vital role in helping you to level up your light past the 265 hard limit on most legendary items. Judicious use of these mods will help you boost your light into the 270 and above range. This link will take you to Rick Kackis's YouTube page. He's got lots of guides up already about how to get various exotics such as the Mida Multi-Tool, the Rat King, and the Sturm hand cannon. Hint - save up an exotic engram for later (don't decode it!) and start stashing rare and legendary scout rifles in your vault. As a final note, don't forget that every exotic in the game automatically comes with a legendary mod already installed. Don't forget that exotic engrams can decode all the way up to the maximum light level. I hope everyone finds this information useful. See you all in the game!

    I'm not sure how many of you remember me, but I've been gone from the forums a long time. Not entirely from gaming, but not as hardcore as before. Well, I've decided to deposit myself back into the gaming scene (and industry) due to some new goals and vision for my future and as a bonus I get to come back to chat with some old friends on TAG. Glad to be back! Be gentle

    I got to play a little last night and I am liking the skills so far. The Necro starts off as a really strong class for leveling. The very first skill you start with a small circle aoe that does 150% dmg/sec. So it makes for a very strong starter skill for aoe clearing. Corpse explosion with bloody mess rune is ridiculous aoe clearing ability for a low level class. I also like the Blood Siphon generator that does 300% dmg per tick. It is super strong single target damage and that helps get a corpse to start your explosion chain going. y Pets are okay so far. The skeletons being passive spawns are nice, but I feel the active portion while nice for directing your skellies ends up feeling kinda expensive to use and I mostly ignore it and just use the skellies as bodies to block mobs. The golem just feels like a Gary. You can't really direct him so he is just like a WD pet. You can activate him on a 60 sec cooldown which does re position him and spawns some corpses for you to use. The skeleton mage skill feels more like a spender skill rather than a pet in my opinion. I like the skill because the mage you summon will sort of immediately target what you aimed at and follows for a short while. I don't like the archer rune much because it seems to me to make the targeting of the mage slower from the start. It is the best rune for a full pet build though because of the attack speed buff it can provide, so I may just need to get used to it. The death nova is interesting as a skill too for a spender. It is a 25 yard point blank aoe that does decent damage (350% base rune), but corpse explosion which you get earlier does 250% in a 20 yard radius (25 with bloody mess rune) and costs nothing but to have a corpse. I kinda feel that nova gets overshadowed because of this. You use a generator like Dual Scythe or Blood Siphon (the two most damaging ones) to make a corpse and then just chain reaction Corpse Explosion everything on the screen till it is gone. If there are still elites or a pack left the toss out a couple skeleton mages to mop up. The gameplay feels good so far, and I certainly plan to play necro next season. Myself also being a multiboxer, I see a lot of potential for multiboxing necro's. Skeleton mages is a great auto targeting skill for boxing and the way the corpse mechanic works and globe spawning ability of corpses and a necro passive could make boxing multiple necro's pretty amazing. The only problem is there are not a lot of synergy multiple necros can provide to each other. The best thing would be having 4 possible curses, but I haven't looked at runes to see how beneficial that would be yet. Not a lot of other buffs that necro's bring other than globe spawning tho. The thing I hate most about necro so far is the armor skill. It is just another skill that changes your characters appearance and is up permanently, which is slightly annoying. The worst part of it though is it functions just like soul harvest for the WD used to in the fact that it has stacks based on the number of mobs hit and instead of just refreshing the cooldown and adding to the stack count like harvest now does, it functions like harvest used to and adds a new buff with whatever the number of mobs you hit each use. This means you have to only use it when there are 10 mobs around you or you can actually lower the buff from the skill. Makes using it slightly frustrating. With this being a large portion of the Necro's dmg mitigation it is just a stupid concept to use a known skill method that didn't work for a previous skill like Soul harvest over again. I only managed to get into the mid 20's last night soloing my way through season 11 on the ptr, so I haven't yet experienced a ton of the Necro, but from what I can tell right now is that the class will be a strong leveler for a season. The base skills just provide all the right combination of single target and aoe options and they damage they do base and with early runes is on the stronger side of classes. They have the best mix of it all that I can see. Item support and sets will really determine the endgame potential, but for now they are a strong base class (and I am not even abusing the broken revive skill)

    I wouldn't call what we do in Halo "competitive". More like drinking beer and laughing at each other's life mistakes. You should check out our shooters forum. We have Destiny specific threads in there. http://theadultgamer.com/forum/index.php?/forum/58-shooters/ Also, Tuesdays are our official Destiny night. I think our biggest Destiny crowd is still on PS4 but there is a group of folk who play on Xbox as well.

    I am, lol. I stayed up to watch the Nintendo release thing, and then stayed up til the preorders dropped. Picked up a pre-order at best buy, but I ended up getting one today on the trade in promotion at Gamestop. Traded in the Wii U and all the games I had for it and ended up paying a little over 10 bucks (less than tax) and I got Zelda to go with it. The extra $75 trade toward the switch was a great deal, especially when they are paying 120 trade in already for the Wii u. Basically gave my 200 just for the Wii u, all the games pushed it up and over the retail of the system. SOoooooo...basically traded in the old Wii U for the new model =) I'm excited. I love new consoles...

    I didn't play too many games actually made in 2016. So, I say this lightly when I say it must have been Gears 4 as my worst. I actually liked it mostly. I never played much more than campaign in any Gears iteration, so I'm oblivious to the mainstream complaints. The campaign did lack some punch, I felt like I ran into something new and cool every turn in Gears 2, but I wouldn't say that made the campaign bad. Guess this means a I had a good year in gaming! p.s. I'm glad I didn't shell out for a no mans sky PS4 bundle.

    I loved this movie. I really enjoyed seeing the star wars universe from a non-jedi, grunt soldier sort of perspective. The tying in to 4 was done beautifully, the easter eggs for fans were excellent, and the special effects were amazing in 3D. Felicity Jones did a fantastic job and I loved the blind jedi and his heavily armored buddy. I could watch movies based on their backgrounds, too. I'm eagerly hoping for a Rogue Two as I'm sure there will be to cover the second death star.

    Found the workaround, which is incredibly easy: Sign into Xbox Live as my alt profile. Start party as alt profile. Party is fully functional and normal. Go to any game. Launch game. Switch profile in-game to Wolfrat primary account. Party as alt stays active. No glitch. No issue. One-week chat ban successfully circumvented. Tested this with multiple friends across multiple games. I will have fully functional Xbox Live Party Chat with my friends while playing Titanfall 2 as Wolfrat the minute it launches (Thursday, 10-27-2016, 9 PM Pacific). In the words of Sgt. Abraham Ford, I say to AIRSTRIKE 88: "Suck my nuts!" You are a steaming sack of sh*t and I circumvented your ban, troll! BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
