    I'm guessing (hoping) that the situation is that they weren't offered favorable compensation after the CBS sale, so they're going to start a Twitch or YouTube channel together and become fully indepen...

    I have a PS5 through a friend who got caught up in the thrill of buying PS5s. He doesn't even play videogames. At first, he did it to get one for his nephews, then he started getting them for friends,...

    I'm disappointed that they didn't show the online multiplayer. I'm wondering if it works well. It was really bad on Mario Maker 2's release.

  • slinkdickens posted a message on the post Nintendo Direct 02/17/21.

    The way multiplayer works with friends is so boneheaded in Splatoon 2 that it makes me despise the game. I hope Nintendo fixes it for 3, but I have zero faith that Nintendo will understand how the Int...

    @roadshell: A loose qualification is that RTX released in 2020. The concept of limiting GOTY to games that came out in a given year is getting stale as more and more games become living games that con...

    A suggestion for next year: do like The Dice Tower and just countdown and discuss your personal top ten lists. I get a little weary of the inevitable nitpicking that is done in the Giant Bomb GOTY del...

    I honestly believe that if you put in the legwork to design and find a manufacturer, you could start a Kickstarter and fund a Giant Beastcast pinball machine. Possibly, Beastcast is too specific, so i...

    I wonder why @jeff doesn't play Half Life Alyx wirelessly in his backyard or something rather than try to play in the limited space by his PC. It takes a bit of light hackery, but it's not too difficu...

    Just got a Oculus Quest 2 and I was really impressed compared to PSVR (which is currently sitting in a closet). The tech works great. I don't get what the big deal is with linking a Facebook account....

    If you have the money up front and want an Xbox Series S/X, don't do the payment plan. 3-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate codes go on sale for about $25 pretty frequently, so you'd end up paying more on...

    @benpack if you're really serious about frozen pizza, you can invest in a $60 pizza steel to cook your $10 frozen pizza. Price to value is questionable, but I got one and it made a huge difference.

    @vinny You should attach a hydrazine booster to a medium rover and ride it off a ramp, just for funsies.

    Why do people think now is not the time to play Pandemic? You get to be on a team that will defeat global pandemics. It's the perfect escapism at this time when we are helpless against COVID-19. In t...

    Microsoft isn't trying to sell a console. They're trying to sell a gaming ecosystem. To that end, I think they're doing an excellent job with the constant "smart delivery" and "available on Game Pass"...

    @erlog: I've never heard Hearthstone or Magic referred to as a deck building game by video gamers. You got the terminology wrong.
