I love the Doc. I figured he’d hit somewhere around tyler1’s numbers. His production quality is unmatched by any other streamer, glad he’s still able to see this type of success after his mistake.

If I hadn't watch the video of when he took the break I would say it was a PR stunt. Him coming back this quickly though is a bit weird.

Yeah...I don't think anyone could act THAT well...although it is pretty suspicious.

The Doc is one of the only streamers I've watched more than a few times...he is always entertaining and I agree about the production quality.

Craziest number for me was the fact that he had 320,000 concurrent during his Intro...

This is a current gen update of EA's classic Mutant League Football for the Sega Genesis. For those of us who loved the original it's a no-brainer, but it's also worth a look for anyone who just wants a fun arcade football game.

Yep, I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Just as fun & frustrating as the original. Rookie level is still relatively hard, especially when half of your team is dead. From what I've read, there will be updates and tweaking and even a "franchise" mode eventually.

If you have young kids that may be playing the game, I'd recommend going into the setting and turning off the adult language. My first game in and I was surprised at all of the profanity. I'm not normally bothered by profanity, but adding in a F&*K to every 3rd line of commentary takes something away from the game, IMO.

With tons of games I could play but simultaneously lacking motivation to play anything I decided to fire up my 3DS and do a start from Scratch on A Link Between Worlds. Pretty solid remake/homage to A Link to the Past, which is my favorite Zelda game of all time.

RE: OT: The Official Video Game Discussion Thread
I started playing Witcher 3 on PS4 last night. The tiny text is ruining the experience. I'm sitting 10-12 ft from a 40" TV which has been good enough for dozens of other games, but I have to squint to read Witcher 3 text

The PS4 has a native zoom-in feature for the vision impaired which I've been using to read tutorials, documents, quest descriptions, dialog options, inventory descriptions, etc. But it's kinda tedious stopping to zoom and then pan over to the text every time you need to read something

There was a pretty early patch that fixed all of that...I never had issues. Are you fully up to date on software updates? Go to the configuration menu and up the HUD size to large, I believe that's how it changes.

Yeah it's updated and I've increased the HUD size. Still too small to read comfortably. Maybe my TV is too small or I'm sitting too far away, but I haven't had this issue with any other game since upgrading from my old CRT years ago.

Maybe I could be like Michael Scott with his little plasma TV and stand in front of it for hours.
