I haven't listened to it yet, but Damn, it seems that they missed the Halo Infinite delay news. Would love to hear Jeff's rant about the development issue that game has.

"PC's aren't complicated" isn't a very good argument to the mainstream audience.

Hell, I've been playing games for 30+ years. I tried playing F.E.A.R. on PC the other day and my frame rate was terrible. I had to research it, download a file from some message board, put it in the proper system folder, then reinstall, and then fudge with my settings because apparently there was something incompatible with my video card. Mainstream folks may not do that, or maybe they'll just play at 10 fps because they wouldn't know any better.

So, since PC's are easier than before but are still a nightmare if something goes wrong, I propose a petition for Giant Bomb to stop making that argument when talking about console recommendations to their less techy friends and family.

Yeah, but you have to consider, you average Joe is not gonna play a niche game from 2005, which was made in an era where gaming PC was not mainstream and Devs never optimised it, let the community to fix their inability to fix simple framerate issues. Your normal casual will just play the latest COD, FIFA, or just stick to League of Legends where you really don't need to calibrate anything and the game simply launch in seconds.

PC gaming is no longer a ''techy'' hobby and it has simply became less complicated.

It was really frustrating for the crew to miss out completely Ben's point in that Console Vs PC gaming these days and therefore dismissing it entirely, because Ben's has a huge point and Abbey's opinion about PC gaming is very outdated.

Console market is very muddled, to a point that building a PC (Be it 1080 or 4k) is much easier proposition. Abbey comes from enthusiast PC gaming point of view in terms of complications of PC gaming.

You really don't need play around with sliders and numbers in options if you are casuals with a medium range because publishers set everything up in standard mode and you are good to go. and building it is quite simple. You buy case, GPU, CPU, RAM and cooling system and you are 90% there. Again, unless you are hardcore PC gamer, you really don't need to complicate things.

Abbey, I know you are jealous of Jeff's Pinball machine because he talks so smugly about it and all but let me tell you this: Pinball sucks and no one actually want them to have one.

Hope this helps!

Wow, Vinny sounds very rattled and all over the place. I didn’t mind it during his venting (which was understandable) but throughout the show he was very muddled and kept speaking/presenting in an unsure manner.

This industry just sucks the life to the best of people. Vinny should take a lengthy holiday.

Bloody love Austin. I also love that he mixes some humour when he is discussing depressive life and social issues just to take the load of our shoulder a bit. Not only intelligent in his critique but emotionally too.

Really laughed out loud when he mentioned mixing metaphors.
