It would have to be the Book of Spells and PSEye camera.

My youngest was mesmerized by the book only showing things on the TV. You know how many times I had to sneak the "Magic Wand" away while she slept to charge it up... Too many.

It has given her a healthy relationship with technology and she's always willing to try new things because of it.

Should've used an "innocent" program and put the file in the ALT-Stream.
Make sure to put in a prog to change the date/time of files too to hide any evidence of tampering and you're more likelyto be in the clear.

I am impressed that he snuck the files in using Steam Screenshots though.

More than half of parents let their kids play 18+ video games

melnificent

9 months ago

@Brainflowers I let my kids play/watch certain 15/18 rated games/films. But it depends on the reason for the higher age rating.
Censors have a fear of the female nipple, that's fine.
Violence... well when you see running battles between gangs outside your house a game isn't going to top that.
Sex - Older one okay, younger no.
Multiplayer - only with friends.
Lootboxes - Fuck no.

And lootboxes are in 7+ rated games, but they should be the real 18.

At the end of the day, if you have an idea of the content and know your child then you can make an informed decision.

Our village of 6,000 was too small for anything other than a single pokestop. Servers were so bad they barely worked, and they rolled out to more countries instead of upping servers first.

I'm surprised Ubi haven't dropped their assassins creed environments into VR. With something similar to eagle flight for the mechanics, or have an explore mode to just look around without pressure.

It'd work well for just looking around their approximates of historic environments and blow most other VR walking simulators out of the water.

There has been a large shift this year from reviewers to "influencers". Basically, shifting away from critics and facts to fans that will play their game and gloss over bugs and problems. Civ 6 did this with code sent out a month early to the youtube and twitch crowds, while reviews were still under an embargo.
