    Rumour: Sony's PS5 is definitely more powerful than Microsoft Project Scarlett

    in Sony Discussion 1 day ago

    Instopped caring who was more powerful with Xbox 360 and PS3 and the difference becomes more irrelevant with each new gen as far as I am concerned. Everything looks amazing to me. Here is a different prediction: without knowing anything else about them, I believe PlayStation will be the clear sales winner. I don’t think Microsoft cares anymore, hence almost all their exclusive games appearing...

    Breath of the Wild 2 will take place in the same Hyrule.

    in Nintendo Discussion 4 days ago

    It is a concern, but it could be perfectly fine: Fill world up with new enemies Fill world up with caves / dungeons Update locations like Tarrytown and Hyrule castle and the divine beasts To me the world is big enough that I will hav3 forgotten most of it...in fact I think BOTW is too big and I hope there are more options for faster travel. Anyway I’ll reserve judgement until we see way...

    Official Nintendo E3 2019 Thread!

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

    I thought the first party content was kind of disappointing. Breath of the Wild 2 is nice, but at probably two years away give or take 8 months, and Animal Crossing only available in 2020 is not what I was hoping for. The Smash reveals were cool but how excited should we get for the chance to pay to add two more characters on the already gigantic roster? Is the mecha game first party.? I guess...

    E3 is less than a week away!What are your expectations?

    How long until the House of Representatives begins Impeachment Hearings against the President of the United States?

    in Politics Discussion on 31 May 2019

    I don’t love Trump, but what is the worst thing In the Muller report*? I keep hearing there are “many” impeachable offences but nobody has come up with anything really juicy. When the process started, didn’t we hope to hear they found a bunch of emails showing Trump and Putin outlining their plot and signing off with, “Let’s screw America hard, HAHAHA”? As for re-election, I think the...

    Mortal Kombat Developer Diagnosed with PTSD

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 May 2019

    I guess I should read the damn article, but what I could see being the “shocker” here is finding out that many of your coworkers are ok with or even excited for watching real life reference content to get a fantasy Mortal Kombat fatality to look better. As for personal responsibility vs. company responsibility I think there should be a balance, and I don’t know enough facts to debate it...even...

    Star Citizen. Finally someone calls a spade a spade. Scam.

    in PC Discussion on 08 May 2019

    I think kickstarting any game to the tune of hundreds or thousands of dollars is foolish for ordinary folks. If you’re wealthy, that’s a different story, but I’m betting we have more than a few people who hurt themselves financially for this game. If it’s your life’s dream, put in 200 bucks and have faith that enough other nerds will help. AI combined with a small team of visionaries will...

    On the Social Construction of Sex

    in Politics Discussion on 02 May 2019

    There is an element of social construct of course, but the phrase “simply a social construct” seems to imply zero recognition of the biological differences which are also an element. There is evidence that this point of view may be causing harm, e.g. lower academic achievements for boys, or the nearly literal book burning mentioned above. Is a book burning is okay as long as the books don’t...

    The PS4 Won The Console Generation By Being Boring: Can The PS5 Do The Same?

    in Gaming Discussion on 30 April 2019

    Article: sort of right, but maybe not for all the right reasons. Microsoft took risks, but forgot about gaming, just see the supercut video of the XBox unveiling where the presenters say “TV” 500 times followed by a trailer of COD with dogs. Kinect always on was a disaster, and nobody wanted to pay $100 extra for all that. Also, don’t forget that Sony tried to be the be-all end-all set top box...

    Sony to crack down on sexually explicit games |Update: Specifically Japanese games containing underage characters

    Sony to crack down on sexually explicit games |Update: Specifically Japanese games containing underage characters

    in Sony Discussion on 24 April 2019

    I question whether Sony is implementing a broader anti-sexualization campaign and trying to obfuscate it behind the “only underage” banner based on Devil May Cry...or is the female character in DMC “supposed” to be under 18? I can’t totally argue with the underage stance, Japan’s permissive stance on media depicting sexualized young girls is disturbing to me and I don’t like how it is even...

    The cart limitations of the Switch is really starting to hurt the console.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 16 April 2019

    What really drives me nuts is how games across all three consoles are regulary coming with great big day one downloads or tons of patches.that suck up storage and prove the physical product isn’t worth aught. I miss the days of buying a whole game and not having to worry that it will be useless or half of what it was in a decade....

    What do you say to judgmental people that say Superhero films are for kids ?

    in General Discussion on 10 April 2019

    My solution is to always call them “films” or better yet, “pictures”. “I just saw the new Wonder Woman picture.” Also, nobody I know cares what movies I watch...except my wife who can’t really complain because her favourite films are the Harry Potter pictures....

    Putting Sony’s 4.2 million PSVR sales in context

    in Sales Discussion on 05 April 2019

    Where is a chart showin* the rate of sales for PSVR? Probably hard to make since Sony likely mentions sales once or twice per fiscal year. My impression is VR IS tapering off, bu5 maybe I am wrong...

    Games you put down after a significant time investment. Have you ever successfuly returned?

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 April 2019

    chrono Trigger I quit and got back to, about 10 years later, haha. Eternal Darkness and Pikmin 2, too, although those two only had to wait about 5 years. So maybe there is hope for games like Tales of Symphonia, Skiesof Arcadia and Ogre Battle 64. Basically I could not find the time to finish RPGs in my dating years....

    PS4 and Switch sales comparison: some things to consider

    in Sales Discussion on 02 April 2019

    I am a Nintendo fan first, but this smacks of excuses. Nintendo is responsible for its own lack of momentum in 2018 with the poor first party software showing they had from January-September. Frankly 2019 is not looking a lot better so far. The good news is they did not screw up the launch like 3DS or Wii U. Is Sony on “easy mode”? Sure, but that’s also Nintendo’s fault for botching Wii U. If...

    Best Ending Themes in games.

    I am partial to A Link to the Past’s credits, quiet and nostalgic then building up to the classic theme. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=MSjJeZ8DOog More recently,, Adventure Time: Hey Ice king! Did a great job of taking the end credits music style and putting it to literal lyrics, not my all time favourite, but pretty funny https://youtu.be/fOd9u4lWu04 I am sure there...
