Johnson won't want to be responsible for having that happen on his watch, no matter how many Brexiteers are happy to cut Scotland and/or Northern Ireland loose to facilitate Brexit - odds are he'll cook up some deal that'll leave moderate Brexiteers...

    The greatest loser; which console that lost its gen in sales do you love most?

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 November 2019

    Either the Nintendo 64 or the Xbox 360. The former for its amazing line-up of exclusives, and the latter for being probably the best all-around console from its generation. Honourable mention also to the Wii U; I've made no secret that I consider it to be probably the worst-designed console from any major manufacturer, but I can't deny that it had a great game line-up, and the off-TV...

    Canada Votes 2019

    in Politics Discussion on 22 October 2019

    While the Conservatives were probably hurt by things outside of their control - Doug Ford tanking their popularity in Ontario, the Bloc's unexpected comeback - I think Andrew Scheer really screwed this campaign up. It often felt like he was more concerned with neutralizing the People's Party than tackling the Liberals head-on. Gotta feel for the NDP as well. When you look past the fact that...

    I think the same thing's going to happen as happened with Trudeau's father - he'll lose his majority, but be able to fall back on the NDP (and/or the Greens, if they win enough seats to make any difference) to stay in power. Scheer might get close to, even slightly ahead of him in seat counts, but the Bloc aren't going to prop up a Conservative government, and unless the polls are hilariously...

    Sticks and Stones

    in General Discussion on 20 September 2019

    I think it's one of those things that comes in peaks and troughs over the years. Yes, nowadays the slightest hint of any bigotry from a person can be leapt on and used to ruin them... but I don't think that's a whole lot different to how in the 1950s (and arguably even as late as the 1980s) saying that you thought the Communists might have a good idea or two was a good way of instantly losing...

    Least liked console from each of the big 3 and why

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 August 2019

    Nintendo: Wii U. Actually a close call between this and (please don't hurt me) the Gamecube, as both systems had an 18-month spell with tons of great games, and then absolutely nothing. However, the Gamecube was at least a well-designed system that was never going to have any prayer of competing against the juggernaut that was the PS2; by contrast, from a pure hardware design standpoint the Wii U...

    How did AMD make Zen 2 faster?

    in PC Discussion on 02 August 2019

    haxxiy said: It's fairly amusing to have AMD with the IPC crown for the first time since the Athlon 64, that's for sure. Right now, Intel are getting absolutely slaughtered in the server arena, and are able to compete in a few desktop situations but on the whole are behind, with their main saving grace being a mobile CPU design that looks to have a lot of potential if they can get it...

    Are there any years worse for Nintendo than 2015 and 2016?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 July 2019

    TheMisterManGuy said: I terms of the 3DS, I'd say Nintendo also made the mistake of assuming third parties and developers will blindly trust them with the 3DS because of its predecessor's pedigree, so they decided to cut corners on Launch titles, so that third parties can take the spotlight. But when it became apparent that third parties didn't have much ready either due to them still...

    Any news for future Ace Attorney stuff

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 June 2019

    Unfortunately, I think the Ace Attorney series is pretty much dead at this point; Spirit of Justice apparently only barely broken even, and Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 was a colossal bomb. There'll very likely be an HD re-release of Apollo Justice at some point, as they already remade all the artwork for the iOS/Android release, and maybe an HD remaster of Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice, but...

    Digital Foundry Analysis: In Theory: The Witcher 3 on Switch - Is A Port Actually Possible?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 June 2019

    Part of me wonders whether it's actually The Witcher II which is being ported to the Switch, and it's being misreported as III. Considering that II already has a 360 port, it'd probably be easy to bump its resolution up to 1080p, maybe make a few other graphical improvements, and slap it on the Switch. (Then again, they said the same thing about Saint's Row the Third, and look how that turned...

    Bethesda Is Doubling Down On Creation Engine. What Gives?

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 May 2019

    Doesn't a lot of the engine's underlying code date back to Fallout 3, possibly even Oblivion? You can't keep piling new features onto an engine that old, especially the sort of things required to make a Games as a Service title work, and not have things eventually start falling apart....

    Will the XBOX One outsell the SNES?

It's the year after it may fall below that... Which will probably not matter by that point. Available for purchase, yes, but consoles have a habit of seeing their sales drop off a cliff once their...

    Dragon Age 4 rumours, might be another 'game as a service'...

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 April 2019

    vivster said: I'm not worried at all. Now that Anthem failed so spectacularly everything will be fine. Unless DA4 becomes a full on MMO we'll be fine. Honestly, I'd prefer it if Dragon Age 4 were an actual MMO, as that's at least a tried and true genre. The Games as Service thing is basically the worst of both worlds....

    Retro Games overrated vs underrated: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter.

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 March 2019

    I think Turok 1's ratings were pretty fair in the context of when it came out, and it's still an overall pretty fun game, but Turok 2 surpassed it in just about every way possible. (Well, aside from 2's ultimate weapon being kinda lame, but apart from that...)...

    Is BioWare near the end?

People complained about petty things like "There's too many fetch quests.", there are hardly any and if you don't want to collect the shards, don't. 50% of the larger missions are linear paths like DA:O and then we have an open world full of...

    Is BioWare near the end?

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 February 2019

    Andromeda alone was the type of game a developer typically doesn't recover from. Now, having released two of the absolute worst AAA games from this entire generation in the space of two years, there is no way back for Bioware. Absolutely none. I expect what we'll see now is the studio busted down to a skeleton crew to handle content for Anthem (assuming EA even considers it worth keeping...
