  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Is it more fun to not have a game backlog?. on the General Discussion board

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic How is PlayStation Showcase 2021 on September 9th so far?. on the General Discussion board

    @isomeri: Black PS5 would be cool but given how little stock there continues to be I'd be surprised if they split production into even two different plastic colours right now. I'd be happy to be wrong...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Move and then throw out? Throw out and then move? What happened the last time you moved?. on the Off-Topic board

    I have moved across country twice, but not in a time in my life when I had accumulated enough stuff to approach what's going on in Jeff's videos. I definitely got rid of stuff before the move in both...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Just Bought a PC - What Next?. on the General Discussion board

    @tartyron: Until you reach the point where you would need to basically replace the whole thing, then get a new console since graphics cards are absurdly expensive, put the whole thing off for a few ye...

  • Brendan posted a message in the forum topic Is it more fun to not have a game backlog?. on the General Discussion board

    Luckily my poor memory means that when there are games I'm interested in at one point, I end up forgetting they exist if I don't get them. As an adult without kids I have more time than many for gami...
