  • ape_dosmil posted a message in the forum topic Does anyone use one of those electric scooters?. on the Off-Topic board

    They're classified as motor vehicles in the UK (unlike electric bikes) which means they have to be registered, taxed, insured etc. It's basically impossible to register and insure a privately owned e-...

  • ape_dosmil posted a message in the forum topic Ratchet & Clank 2016 is like video game candy for me. Delicious empty calories I can't help but gobble.. on the Ratchet & Clank board

    @noboners: I had scrubbed the groovatron trophy from my memory, you're right that's a bitch.

  • ape_dosmil posted a message in the forum topic Ratchet & Clank 2016 is like video game candy for me. Delicious empty calories I can't help but gobble.. on the Ratchet & Clank board

    I loved my time with R&C 2016. I don't generally care about achievements and this remains the only game I've platinumed. My memory is that there weren't any massively challenging trophies so it's ...

    Not demos as such but if anyone remember Net Yaroze, the PS1 devkit that was released to the public so people could make their own games.The UK Official Playststion Magazine would sometimes include on...

    Subscribed, thanks for sharing. The game of the year streams they recorded together were great so I'm really looking forward to a regular podcast. Dan's work ethic is insane.

  • ape_dosmil posted a message in the forum topic The End of Ownership and now we can't even have NFTs?. on the Bombcast board

    @noblenerf: It's not necessarily a whataboutism because both things ultimately require the same solution, which is clean energy. Our energy use as a species is only going to increase in the future, th...

  • ape_dosmil posted a message in the forum topic The End of Ownership and now we can't even have NFTs?. on the Bombcast board

    @imhungry: You're comparing Giant Bomb to the entire Crypto space though. Compare video streaming as a whole to crypto. Say it was to be mandated that all businesses offering video streaming from Gian...

    @relic: Thanks for reassuring me I'm not going crazy. The thing is I didn't even express any particular opinion about NFTs and I don't actually have any strong feelings about them one way or the other...

    @depecheload: What unpopular opinion have I expressed here?

    @ssully: I really don't know all that much about crypto but I do know I was using bitcoin to buy drugs eight years ago. The idea that cryptocurrencies don't have any use as a real currency is bizarre ...

    @depecheload: That's not my experience.

  • ape_dosmil posted a message on the post Episode 302.

    @palemamba: I wouldn't necessarily disagree. It used to piss me off, but I find most people in the real world are still perfectly willing to engage in reasonable debate and consider opposing viewpoint...

    I appreciate Jeff. I don't want to listen to an echo chamber where everyone shares exactly the same view on every single vaguely controversial or political topic.

  • ape_dosmil posted a message on the post Episode 297.

    I wasn't aware there was a Switch cloud version of Hitman 3 until Vinny mentioned it here. I just played through the free demo of the yacht training mission and I'm impressed how well it plays. The re...

  • ape_dosmil posted a message on the post 670: We Call It Cluedo!.

    Just to clarify, Peter Moore was CEO at Liverpool, not the chairman. He wasn't involved in appointing the manager or anything like that, and in fact Klopp was in place before Moore joined. He was pure...

    @lyndbako: Well presumably it was a choice between voice only or bed cam. He did voice only on day one and two and personally I prefer to be able to see him. I suspect the other staff members prefer t...

    @roadshell: The personal lists have always included games that didn't come out that year as far as I can remember. There aren't really any rules for the personal lists.

  • ape_dosmil posted a message on the post SWERY's Top Games of 2020.

    Great read, I always find it interesting to read a Japanese take on Western games.Edit: Also how crazy is it that even Swery couldn't get his hands on a PS5? The PS5 really feels like vaporware at thi...
