    Favourite system startup sequence

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 September 2019

    Gamecube is simply great. Not just going around cube-wise but also connecting to the G logo and you can "roll" the cube to get to the menu etc. Dreamcast is also amazing because of its simple design ...

    Gaming on the PS4 is so ANNOYING!

    in Sony Discussion on 31 March 2019

    It's the same on Xbox. Not a fan of this either and I go back to "retro" more often because I can just load it up and play. When this generation started I already wondered where the small updates went. It's like the devs now always need to update the whole game when they just throw in a quick patch. Xbox 360 had updates below 100MB which didn't annoy at all but then all of a...

    When is it no longer appropriate to have a Christmas Avatar?

    in General Discussion on 15 January 2019

    Christmas != red hat/suit So, red hat/suit = it's over when "Christmas" in terms of presents and family and red trucks delivering drinks is over. Since this Christmas isn't really serious anyways, you can easily be "funny" by wearing the hat whenever and throw presents around in green/red/golden colors. Real christmas = ends with New Year, Epiphany takes over (for Protestants; check your religion...

    Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee looks much better than I expected

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 June 2018

    shikamaru317 said: It looks good, but I'm really quite annoyed about the paywall they placed on Mew. You can only get Mew if you buy the Pokeball+ controller, and because it's a Nintendo accessory, you know that scalpers will buy them all up and sell them at 3x mark-up, so that's extra annoying if you're a big Mew fan like me. As if they would buy EVERY copy of the game that comes as...

    Team Sonic Racing gameplay footage

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 June 2018

    I will get this anyways but a few concerns: The early build will hopefully be polished a lot; my memory may be wrong but Transformed looked better to me than this. I hope they don't go too much Mario Kart clone with this one. Mario Kart has pretty much been killed on the arcade racing side, it's just rolling around and using items nowadays. The previous Sonic racing games felt very arcade-y...

    How many of you guys buy duplicate games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 21 April 2018

    I do this if: 1. I like the game a lot. Example: got Overcooked for X1, PS4 and Switch 2. I like the game a lot and play with different friends. Example: got Rocket League for X1, PS4, Switch and Steam 3. I like the game a lot and preserve a copy in case it breaks some day 4. I think the game might be worth more sometime in the future (not like a few days/weeks but years/decades) 5. I own a PAL...

    A Bowser Spin-Off?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 April 2018

    While I'd love to see some sort of adventurous platformer where you can spin around in the shell and stuff, I'd see a strategy game happening, placing your minions around the kingdom (groups, castles, bosses) to stop "intruders" (Mario lol) from accessing the huge castle in the center of the map....

    Are Nintendo fans more racist than PlayStation fans and Xbox fans?

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 March 2018

    I own a white, black and red Wii (couldn't find a yellow one; read: all Asians have to die!). So I guess if "every" Nintendo fan has to go to jail for racism, I'm fine....

    I want MarioKart to become into "nintendo kart"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 March 2018

    Just pointing out, the koopas are by no means just clones of themselves or other characters. Also, RolStoppable said: Your idea for unique specials will only break the game. The unique items in Double Dash!! sucked because they weren't balanced. It's only going to get worse if a greater number of specials needs to be implemented. Leave that garbage in the GameCube era. It...

    Why are a handful of VR users so adamant?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 January 2018

    This thread is actually all about what it is trying to be against. People somehow managing to put themselves above others, in whatever way. Be it "I like VR, I can think ahead so me > you", "I don't like VR because reasons so me > you", "people who can't afford it are obviously against it so me/my money > you/rs", "I only buy games when they are on sale so VR is not for me, I don't waste...

    Why is Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze $60?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 January 2018

    I like how all my Switch games (most would be considered AAA/Must-have) have been around 45 so far. Even if DK is 60 in the end and not available any cheaper I don't see how Nintendo is the bad company (again) when the other platforms charge you 60+ for every game anyways and add GOTY, DELUXE, OMG to the titles to charge an extra 10-25 bucks....

    Which Is A Bigger Threat To Humanity? Science Or Religion?

    in General Discussion on 09 January 2018

    Both aren't a threat, it's humans who are and abuse those things. Even if religion isn't as important anymore, it still shaped society and life on earth and forever will. Some day us young lads will understand that religion is about everything and in no way just some words old people like to cite ;)...

    Why is German pop culture less popular worldwide than American, British and Japanese?

    in General Discussion on 14 December 2017

    The language definitely is one of the reasons. Most stuff can't even be translated properly without losing content. Porting stuff into German however is something people are capable of. Also, German "pop culture" is mostly just copying what's popular anyways. There's a great movie/story? Add 1-2 years and the Germans will come up with the same thing but less production cost resulting in a poor...

    I love short games

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 November 2017

    I love short games. But mostly when they have an arcade-ish feel, as in: make me beat the game over and over again (no story needed) offer something to shoot for (high scores, crazier difficulties) introduce advanced techniques (even if they are considered bugs and not features) that offer a deeper experience for high score runs (so no novel games, obviously, or small puzzlers that will have...

    Console gamers, why do you feel console gaming is better than PC?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 November 2017

    d21lewis said:  I'd just like to know why you choose to be a console only "peasant", compared to the "Glorious PC Master Race". There could be many reasons and I wouldn't know if they count as real reasons for myself or anyone else. I guess it started with the easy plug'n'play which we could handle as kids. That moment when you plugged in the machine with 2 (!) cables,...

    I Was In A Car Accident *With Pictures*

    in General Discussion on 18 October 2017

    "So my insurance and the police have ruled I was not liable for the accident, so it is not my fault. Will the guys insurance fight that?" The insurance may not if the police delivers a proper protocol. But the guy may have his own lawyer who tries to fight it (if there's a chance; if he blatantly raced into you, you're good). "My mom said I need to get a lawyer to make sure my medical bills...

    I smashed my rebellious controller

    in General Discussion on 27 September 2017

    Reminds me of the good old console fights. The PS2 controllers would break (at least some parts inside) by dropping to the floor while a Gamecube controller had to be smashed into a brick wall at very high speed multiple times to crack open. I remember someone at a LAN trying to break his Gamecube controller. He ended up hurting himself with the controller that bounced off the ground without...

    Splatoon 2’s First Actual Splatfest - Mayonnaise vs. Ketchup

Put ketchup on a tomato and it's just plain repetitive. When you put Mayo on eggs/fat, it's so awful you are gonna puke. Not sure what's so great about fat on fat (mayo on fries) but...

    The Official Heavy Metal Thread

    in Music Discussion on 21 July 2017

    Nu Metal is like Djent. It's no real genre but a label. If you listen to bands that are put into those "genres", they are all pretty different which normally would mean another genre in metal. Singing style, guitar tuning, complexity and mood mostly differs but media will still call it Nu Metal/Djent. I'm into bands like Sybreed, The Interbeing, DVSR. And I came all the way from Black Sabbath,...
