Nothing for me, although I'm endlessly amused that there's a game called "Plantera".

Vulgar Display of Foliage, perhaps?

I have family in town so not sure how much time I will get to play games, but would like to try out Mekazoo and Asura.  

I also am playing more H1Z1: King of the Kill now that they put out a big update that improves combat and lag significantly in addition to some other nice changes.

And probably other random indie games as I continue trying out hidden games in my vast steam library.   :retard:
Tried Mekazoo and was somewhat baffled by it's controls and core mechanics.

Tried Unexplored and was kind of baffled by it's controls and core mechanics...

Thankfully I could shoot a few people in H1Z1: KotK...nothing baffling there.

Dumped Supernatural as the back and forth, ala X-Files, core and mythology stories didn't seem interesting enough to keep my attention.

Dropped Falling Skies when every big battle was resolved in the commercials and big bad aliens were all hype and never seemed to kill anyone/do anything threatening.

Wandered away from the Walking Dead for no discernible reason whatsoever, but kind of found it aimless and shocking for shock sake alone. 

Big Bang Theory fizzled out as every last actor on the show is one I would rather invite to the next rocket to the sun after hearing them speak. 

Bones broke the first rule in the opening episode by having Lead Male Actor insult Female Lead Actress with a "witty" nickname to give her the motivation to prove him wrong.

Gaming Trend members,

As you know, we've been talking about upgrading the server, rebuilding the front page, and unifying the forums and the front page comments for a (very) long time. Well...I've got good news. The server has been upgraded significantly, we are close to launching a rebuilt front page, and we have just converted from our antique forum software to a far more responsive and user friendly forum. As such, the forum you are seeing now will close, and all posts will become locked on Friday 5/26/17.

The new forum has all of the posts minus the last week already ported in, as well as your username and password. (Unfortunately, when you are moving a million posts, you've gotta draw the line somewhere.)

The good news is that this means you can log in right away and begin posting any time you'd like. Best of all any front page comments now generates topics in the forums, and you can use your existing account to comment on articles, reviews, previews, or anything else here at Gaming Trend!

The way this works is a new category up top called "Newsfeed". Whenever we post something on the front page, and someone comments on it, the software will pull that article into the forums and you can continue the conversation right from there. Your comments will appear on the front page at the bottom of the article.

At launch we are still ironing out some issues of formatting and theme, so there's going to be some adjustments as we go. The theme you'll see when you arrive is placeholder as we work on a new theme to launch very shortly. Additionally, there's a better than likely chance you'll have to reset your password to get in. Unfortunately, porting PMs was not possible, so you'll need to get whatever data out of them before we shut down the old software on 5/26/17.

Please be patient. It's an exciting time for us, and we are so very glad to have you be a part of it. I'd also like to extend my personal thanks to the team, and especially Mike Dunn. He has done an incredible amount of work to make this possible, and I owe him a great deal of thanks for all his dedication. All of that said - pardon the's time for progress!

You can reach the new forum at:

And the random wheel of gaming lands on...Final Fantasy XV!

I've actually been meaning to do another playthrough since beating it in December.  While I enjoyed the game, I came away a little disappointed.  I think I was so busy waiting for it to blow me away that I forgot to actually enjoy it along the way.  I also went through the first half of the game without really having a clue what I was doing in regards to combat.  I pretty much just button-mashed and hoped for the best.  Now that I have a really good handle on how it works, the early game is lots more fun.  My level 12 party just took down a group of level 18 & 28 bull-things (can't remember the name), even with a platoon of Imperials dropping in midway through.  Actually being able to manage that massive chaos was actually quite exhilarating.

I originally started a New Game+, which started me back at the beginning, but kept all my levels and equipment.  So it had me fighting level 1 monsters and doing level 1 quests with level 48 abilities and weapons.  Where's the fun in that?   :saywhat:  So I just decided to start over from scratch instead.

Whatever it's shortcomings (of which there are lots), this game has something lots of others don't:  a soul and personality in spades.  Maybe it's been patched in since release, but the Chocobros seem to be having lots more side conversations, which adds a ton to their characters.  I'm about 6 hours into a new playthrough, and really, really enjoying it. 

I also gave Fire Emblem a shot, and immediately remembered why I can't get into it:  too damn many characters.  I'm fine getting my head around leveling up a group of 6-10 characters.  15?  20?  Not so much.  So I went back to my old Final Fantasy Tactics A2 save, and am trying to pick up where I left off.  Which is, unfortunately, right before one of the most difficult bosses in the game.   :crybaby:

In the fall of 2011, I dropped cable and DVR service.  Given that there were weekends where my plans were 'watch tv so the DVR doesn't fill up,' dropping the service made everything either appointment or web viewing.  So I pretty much bailed on everything.  Now, my tv consumption is measured in the 0-10 hours per week, mostly through Netflix or Amazon Prime.  And honestly, I don't miss it.

Played a couple rounds of Gunslinger and a round of Eastern Blades with the designer, then came in third to my friend Joe and KD in a game of Fire and Axe.  Late in the evening, I remember that there were supposed to be some VPs on some of the cards themselves, which I don't think we scored properly, which might have changed the outcome, but the longboat had sailed, as it were.

Stumbled across this Prey trophy guide and roadmap at that helps you manage the road to getting all of trophies in the game without having to play it three times. Lots of spoilers if you get ahead of yourself along the road, however.
