I, a fellow gamer, ask you to post vids, cheats, hints, anything on ANY GAME! I kinda want to start a gaming blog but I want help about games I can't even get access to! Most of my games are ultra obscure :T_T:. If you guys help, I will ensure that you will receive all the credit. I only ask you to do what you love and post it on this forum. Help a fellow gamer out would'ya! Also, I will tell you some about my games. In fact, I'll start:
I have a game called Vexx, you probably haven't heard of it. Don't be ashamed, it's kinda old, anyway. The object of the game is to collect Wraithhearts to power various portals to new(and sometimes more dangerous) worlds by accomplishing a to-do list of insane tasks. The actual tasks vary from fighting giant monsters to collecting to solving brain-melting puzzles. The story is great, fine combat, and great graphics! Unfortunately, no multiplayer or CG cutscenes, but cutscenes would actually hinder the games fun. My absolute favorite thing about it is the concept of saving a world(and your uncle) from certain destruction. The instruction area is actually a dream world, too!
By the way, do you think that cheating and hacking are the same thing?

Just write about what you know rather than relying on other people's gaming experiences for your blog. I write about video games (as well as other things) in my blog (the link is in my signature), but I stick to games that I've actually played for the most part, which is usually older games that no one remembers. I have posted about new popular games that I have no interest in, but those posts tend to have a negative spin usually.

Right now, I'm planning to post reviews of a few Atari, SNES, and N64 games in my blog, even though I'm sure no one reading it cares. I try to space reviews out between other types of entries, however, and haven't gotten around to many actual reviews yet, so much as random ramblings mentioning various games.

I only consider it cheating if you take unfair advantage of an other person.

But posting tips, videos, easter eggs, hacks, and codes for a single player game.. I see no harm.

When I play wow and someone is using a speed hack in a battleground, I get a little ticked.

Cheating and hacking are different.

Cheating = gaining an unfair advantage illegally

Hacking = figuring out creative solutions to problems...

Hacking in public servers of multi-player games is cheating and ruins the game for everyone, but in single-player or in private multi-player servers with only my friends is harmless, fun, and can extend the life of a game that I am getting bored of.

Cheating can easily be done without hacking, depending on the game. After all, a great many HAVE built in cheat codes (allyourbasearebelongtous anyone?). Hacking however, simply means the act of entering parts of the coding you aren't supposed to, which of course you can change (though it is simply the entering that is more the definition, not the changing). You can hack a game for the characters to have no clothing for example, which doesn't affect gameplay whatsoever, so isn't cheating. Certainly can make some games alot more interesting though.

Thanks for the advice, however, I feel that I shouldn't use just my experiences. By pooling the experiences of every player possible, you can not only guarantee good information, but EVERYONE can share great information about all the games they know and love! There's also the fact that I am REALLY out of sync with the gaming universe. T_T. Anyway, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukah too! :twisted:

I would like to request that you submit codes, hacks, tips, tricks, vids, pics, or any other info on your favorite games, pleeeeeeease. Here's a tip for anyone who still plays Star Fox Adventures:
Whenever you see a well with sparkles coming out of it, you can pay 20 Scarabs for a Cheat Token, one Token per Well.
Please add on at your leisure. :twisted:

According to my step father, cheat codes are exactly like hacks, except you use a controller to input the codes instead of using a keyboard. Untrue! In fact, cheat codes and hack codes are totally different because cheat codes ARE PROGRAMMED INTO THE GAME, NOT A BYPASS TO ALTER THE GAMING DATA!! ! So anyone thinking that a cheat code uses a hacking mentod, THINK AGAIN! In fact, that explains why games such as Ace Combat Four: Shattered Skies have no cheats, they weren't programmed in! [b][i][u]DUUUUUH!! !
By the way, I hope you also use any info that's posted here to your benefit, and don't forget to post those cheats!
Bye!

Of course not. One can hack in order to cheat, but the two are not identical.
