  • colourful_hippie posted a message in the forum topic Which OLED TV should I get?. on the General Discussion board

    C1 all day. With Sony you're paying more for higher brightness and maybe bit more accurate colors but that's splitting hairs. If you really must have higher brightness then go for the LG G1. You can'...

    Always wanted to go back to Dying Light to finish it but looks like I’ll just play this instead….when it’s $40 or less. Hopefully by then the bugs will be ironed out as well as the progression tree

  • colourful_hippie posted a message on the post Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

    Bought it purely on the hope that they keep iterating on this. There’s an outline of something more interesting here than the mainline games. Pokémon Company management are fucking assholes though for...

    You’re a terrific addition to the team, some might say favorite, thanks for the write up and the hard work you’re doing at GB!

    Thank you Jeff. I only get happier with each recurring moment I see that beautiful hat appear on the site or in a gif out in the wild. That may be the best gift I’ve ever sent to anyone.

  • colourful_hippie posted a message in the forum topic Just to negative.. on the General Discussion board

    Just to negative is a pretty apt name for this fairly negative thread but jokes aside I don’t understand the Jess complaints. She clearly understands video games on many levels and is also able to art...

    There's plenty of fake positivity on YouTube or Twitch. You'll find someone else there.

    Great news indeed in the hiring of Voidburger!

    Great hire!!

    Liking this very much!

    Sure, telling the subbie to clear it just because he's voicing his own concerns about a site he's contributing to is a great way to foster long term growth. No wonder these forums are so anemic.@emosp...

    Also didn't they all talk about putting together some sort of office situation again, or did I just make that up from a hopeless fever dream?I don't see how that can happen when Jeff B is in NJ, Jeff...

    My last comment was before I read that excerpt from Mike's tweet. A lot of that lines up with where I saw Gamespot going. They've been going down the algorithm rabbit hole for a while now chasing FB ...

  • colourful_hippie posted a message in the forum topic How do you decide what to watch next?. on the Anime board

    I don’t like most anime so I really have to go off on suggestions from close friends. Haven’t been super sucked into an anime since FMA Brotherhood and the last one I enjoyed was Carole & Tuesday ...

  • colourful_hippie posted a message in the forum topic What would you say on the idea of Giantbomb changing to appeal to trending material?. on the General Discussion board

    I may not like the vast majority of the new content but they don’t give me the vibe that they’re going to chase trends or the daily hype bullshit. Gamespot and IGN seem to be way further down that roa...

  • colourful_hippie posted a message in the forum topic That Red Ventures NY Times Article. on the General Discussion board

    Not really surprised here. If anything it sounds like RV are willing to help finance a site well enough for the beneficiaries to take a real shot at their aspirations, kind of like what’s going on her...

  • colourful_hippie posted a message in the forum topic How long do you think it'll be before you can just buy one?. on the PlayStation 5 board

    Considering that TSMC recently suggested that they plan to increase their prices for chip manufacturing due to the continued chip shortage, I can easily see this still being an issue throughout all of...

    Whiskey up until Dan left. The rest has been a slow decline for me.
