With PS5 just having launched, people are of course spending more of their spare time gaming so it's understandable that this thread becomes less active. Still, it makes me a bit of a sad panda that I'm never able to catch a few updates when visiting. Have to go other places for that.
Ryuu is doing an awesome job with the Xbox thread constantly posting news, rumors, tweets, polls, open questions, etc. I'm not saying this should be updated as regularly but maybe just a weekly news recap or something like that. And this is not to criticise Bristow as he only took the job because no one else volunteered at the time and he was completely clear about not having the time to update the thread regularly.
If I'm longing for more activity, I should just post more myself or request being the future thread OP. Like Bristow, I currently don't have the time though which I guess is the case for everyone. It's a pity though because this thread could be a way to lure more regulars to the site that mostly care about causal PS talk with minimal of the fanboy war toxicity that is present in far too many individual threads. Dunno. I'm rambling. There's probably not much to do.
This is part the reason I have been around less. I mean, it's just the nature of forums unfortunately, but being away and talking among a group with no toxicity, and idiots doing backflips, is SO REFRESHING. At this point, I feel participating outside this thread is ( mostly )undesirable, and also, that VGC brings out the worst in me as it pertains to discussing video games. I have, of course, done my fair share of backflips over the years, but my time away has reminded me that there ARE OTHER WAYS to go about things.
Like, I don't hate Nintendo, but there are omnipresent elements here that made me forget that this is not the case due to their association with that particular company, as well as their proclivity to engage in, just tiring, lowest common denominator fanboy activity. Again, outside of the forums...What I would refer to as "normal discussion" is the order of the day. There is one fellow in a group I'm in that is quite cynical, but it's not related to any platform bias. It's just the way he's wired, and there have been a smattering of clashes as a result.
In addition, I may be a PS guy, but I'm certainly not above giving PS the gears when I feel they deserve it, which I have demonstrated on this thread, and out in the wild in various threads and articles. I don't want to overdo on that front though, as the climate here maybe isn't the best for that type of thing, plus, I don't want to generally annoy with too much bitching. No promises though.
My excuse today isn't lack of sleep, but rage wine. I drank so much rage wine that I had to set my alarm to wake me up at 9pm, so that I could brush my teeth and watch some of the UFC card.Last edited by COKTOE - on 05 December 2020
