• Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Dankest Confession: The Games I've Bought But Will Not Play. on the General Discussion board

    This happens to me exclusively with old games from charity shops. I'm amazed that so many charity shops still stock PS2 games, and whenever something interesting emerges from the sea of old FIFA games...

    @bdead said:The initial premise might not be so idiotic as you think. It's an extrapolation of the way our current technology is advancing.It seems wierd to me to use the current rate of technological...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Should the UK stay in or leave the EU?. on the Off-Topic board

    @diz: I hope things'll be OK too! I don't think this is going to be the death of UK higher education (or, I certainly hope not!), I just think it will cause some damage, at least in the short term - ...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic This game is so cool. on the Furi board

    I liked everything about the game except the checkpoint system. For those who haven't played, you have 3 health bars and the boss has about 6 - each time you knock of one of the boss's, you get one of...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Should the UK stay in or leave the EU?. on the Off-Topic board

    @diz: It's interesting that you quote the Royal Society in support of the "Brexit won't be too bad for science" case, when they were very much not in favour of Brexit. To quote a concluding statement...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Should the UK stay in or leave the EU?. on the Off-Topic board

    @extintor: Perhaps you're right. For what it's worth, Farage went on the record as saying "in a 52-48 referendum, this would be unfinished business by a long way". Of course, he's not saying that now!...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Should the UK stay in or leave the EU?. on the Off-Topic board

    @extintor: The most absurd thing about this whole farce, though, is that surely the only sensible conclusion of a 48/52 split is that the country is split 50/50! There is precedence for requiring a ce...

    @diz: On the subject of racism - I don't want to be too rude, but frankly, if you won't accept that a siginificant part of the "leave" vote was because of baseless scapegoating of immigrants then you'...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Should the UK stay in or leave the EU?. on the Off-Topic board

    @sanj: Good lord, are the leave campaign allowed to just print outright lies? I thought as the official campaign they'd have some sort of watchdog making sure they weren't saying things that were lit...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Should the UK stay in or leave the EU?. on the Off-Topic board

    @diz: Wow, you're right that that immigration map is terrible - not only is the colouring bad, but the figures are useless. Of course London has the highest number of extra people, it's massive! A mu...

    @diz: Quote from the article: "And as we've outlined here, the recent increase in immigration has put additional pressure on school places. Overall it is equivalent to less than one pupil for each sch...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Should the UK stay in or leave the EU?. on the Off-Topic board

    @diz: Even if migration is an issue, leaving the EU might very well not stop it. I mean, at the moment just over half of the migration into the UK isn't from the EU - if the government hasn't cut down...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic How will Scorpio and Neo affect the console industry?. on the General Discussion board

    What I want to know is how this'll all look once Scorpio and Neo get a reasonable install base. Presumably developers will eventually shift to targeting the newer hardware rather than the older - and ...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Overwatch Hero Breakdown - Offense. on the Overwatch board

    Quick note about Genji's Swift Strike - the cooldown doesn't just reset if you get a kill with the strike, it resets if you get a kill with anything (or even if you just get an assist!). This makes it...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Has anyone here changed their name?. on the Off-Topic board

    @adequatelyprepared: @jacksukeru: If it was Shiva, I hope he's aware that the god Shiva (unlike the Final Fantasy summon) is a guy!

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic *dramatic jrpg battle music*. on the Battle Screen board

    Final Fantasy IX battle theme for me, and that's also the first real JPRG I played so I guess it's just burned into my brain. It was so wierd when I played Final Fantasy VI years later and the battle...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Owners of only *one* of the two main current gen consoles - would you buy the one you don't have?. on the General Discussion board

    I've got a PS4, and I'm very much a "one console only" kind of guy - last gen was the xbox 360, this one is the PS4. Exclusives are nice, but I've never felt it worth getting a whole new console just...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Stop Pupping Around, What Is Your Favourite Game Ever (and why)?. on the General Discussion board

    I'm gonna have to say Devil May Cry 3 - as well as fun/bonkers visual design, it had the series' best combat, probably the best combat system in any action game I've played. Enough complexity to give ...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic There Is No Such Thing as a Paid Mod. on the General Discussion board

    I think the real problem is that for a paid mod storefront to work it would require a huge amount of actual effort/curation on the part of whoever was running it. Not to ensure quality/compatability f...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Your Reaction to the PS Neo. on the PlayStation 4 board

    As someone who just bought a PS4 earlier this year, I think "mildly pissed" covers it quite well. I mean, I'm glad that it seems sony are taking great pains to keep old PS4 users included, but kind of...
