    PS5 Confirmed Backward Compatibility

    in Sony Discussion on 17 April 2019

    HollyGamer said: I am using Intel Optane as an example on how SSD/Flash memory will work on PS5.   There is a reason why the PC does not use NAND as a high traffic swap cache, and that has to do with the limited number of write cycles that NAND is limited to, which is overcome in Optane....

    Update: Jade Raymond joins Google as Vice President | Rumor: Google's gaming console details leaked, possible controller design revealed via patent

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 March 2019

    How hilarious would it be if it was leaked later that Google came to this decision as payback for Microsoft entering their turf (Bing, Bing maps, Windows phone)? Lately, Microsoft has stepped away from Google's markets and focused more on working with the developer's community (cloud based services, sql server and visual studio on other platforms, embracing open source). I wasn't expecting...

    Why bother buying consoles next gen?

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 March 2019

    VAMatt said: But, it is also clear that even playing at console quality on PC is more expensive than just buying a console.  It's a fact, and it is significant to many people. This is a very vague and often misleading argument. For starters, yes; console hardware is cheaper due to the manufacturer incurring a loss on the hardware in return for a locked-in guarantee of...

    What was the last Wii U game you bought? Any games in 2019?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 March 2019

    I just pulled my WiiU out of the box for the first time in almost 2 years. My friend and I were missing the simultaneous multiplayer games that it was known for. Mario 3D World is a blast with multiple players. Haven't bought a WiiU game since Breath of the Wild...

    psmini, one of the biggest fails of the year

    in Sony Discussion on 13 December 2018

    I was very disappointed about this. I pre-ordered it day one, but cancelled as soon as the full lineup was announced. The news only got worse from there. Although I'm in a PAL region, I'd prefer the NTSC copies of the games. Most games are generally made for the major markets of the US and Japan, and like the case of the SNES Classic, some games never even made it to PAL (Mario RPG, FFVI)...

Essentially, they class it as an incentive to buy private health (if by "incentive", they mean "do it, or we'll increase your medicare loading, AND make it more expensive to buy it later). Those prices are skyrocketing, and at the same time private benefits are being removed (Bupa just removed knee...

    Trump Wants To Be President For Life

    in Politics Discussion on 06 March 2018

    Unless I missed an article, I do recall Trump saying that "maybe the US will have one, someday". Not exactly implying he is talking about himself. But to the Republicans, Trump's own party, the last "lifelong president" worked out so well, didn't it? I mean he was liked so much by voters that the Republicans couldn't get him out of office. However, once he died, they enacted legislation so it...

    Is Breath of the Wild's sound track lackluster?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 October 2017

    I actually think it conveys the setting quite well, in that post-apocalyptic kind of way. Like the Hylian civilisation at the time, it's minimalistic, a whisper of it's former self, yet at the same time conveying a picturesque nature style....
