Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    The Video Game Thread

    Have any of you played Dark Souls? I had a little free time on the long weekend and so I tried it out. I quickly scanned a few reviews on my iphone, looking at the scores, and then checked out the box. It gave me that Elder's Scrolls kind of feeling, I bought it expecting something like Elder's Scrolls. I got it home, popped it in and started playing... It's not Elder's Scrolls. I died like ten times on the tutorial boss before I finally beat him. They start you off with a broken sword, a wooden shield that doesn't block all damage and send you on your merry way to your unknowing demise with nothing more than a few signs on the ground to help guide you. The sign I read before the tutorial boss told me Happiness was ahead. Yeah, it sure was, if you consider happiness getting slaughtered countless times in a early fight that's more difficult than most game's final bosses. Anyway, I'm hooked. I've died about 20 times in the two hours I've played the game but I can't quit. I know why this game is so popular. Pride. Your pride is literally crushed in the first half hour of the game and it is your quest to gather the fragments so that you no longer feel like a 80 year old man using a PC for the first time. People continue to play this game because they refuse to admit they weren't "man enough" to get through it.

    They need to port Ocarina of Time to the Switch. That would be awesome. Haven't played that game since I had an N64.. about 20 years ago now.
    It was great on 3DS in full 3D.

    Ocarina of Time is my favorite but BOTW is great and epic in size.

    So MS has now introduced the Gamepass Ultimate which gives you xbox live gold along with gamepass for console AND PC.

    They are also allowing you to convert whatever membership you currently have to an ultimate pass for $1 for up to 3 years. So I decided to add another year of live gold for free using microsoft reward points and then paid for another year at $69. I then converted that membership to Gamepass Ultimate for $1.

    I now have xbox live gold and game pass for console and PC until 2022 and all it cost me was $70. That is basically free gaming with brand new AAA games for the next 3 years. That is insane. There is no competition for that kind of value on console or PC. MS announced with their new studios they plan to release a new game every 3 months starting next year. Plus tons of 3rd party devs continue to support gamepass with AAA games. So worth it.

    Also PS store has the entire EA 2019 sports bundle on for $38 - that's Fifa, Madden, NBA Live and NHL 19.
    All of those are free in EA Access right now I believe.

    Seem like a nice deal although I'm mostly a basketball and football gamer. I'd love to have Madden on a handheld.

    Speaking of Zelda, remake of Links Awakening almost excites me more!

    Just means they'll eventually get to redoing Link to the Past, which has always been the epitome of the "Zelda experience" for me. Granted haven't played Breath of the Wild yet. On my to-do.

    Hopefully they've done away with those glass like durability weapons. Its a little annoying before getting the master sword.

    Breath of the Wild coming out with a sequel.. can't wait!
    I did find it interesting that it's being classed as a "Sequel to Breath of the Wild" and not just "a NEW Zelda Game!!", which is usually all it takes to sell them anyway ... goes to show just how popular and successful it was in and of itself.

    I don't get too excited about upcoming games anymore but I'll be a day one purchaser of this:

    FFVII is probably my favorite game of all time and it appears the remake is being well made. When I heard they were moving away from the traditional JRPG battle system to something action oriented it had me a little worried but this action/ATB hybrid setup looks really good.

    Beyond that, Witcher 3 complete edition is coming to Switch? Witcher 3 in handheld mode at 540p is an amazing thing if they can lock the frame rate at 30fps.

    I just restarted Assassin's Creed, Black Flag (on PS3). I love this game. Something so simple and enjoyable about sailing around, attacking other ships, exploring new ports, harpooning some sharks while your crew sings some sea shanty. My favourite game from the AC franchise.
    Its one of my favorite games all time. I had it on PS4.
