  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Thoughts on PlayStation 5's selected 1st parties' PC ports being leaked?. on the General Discussion board

    If GT7 comes to PC it wont be with significant changes. The game fits in a particular spot that is different to the bigger PC sim racing games and they wont try and directly compete with those by goin...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic On its first anniversary the PS5 feels like it has a world of potential...but limited delivery so far. on the PlayStation 5 Forum board

    I think first years of consoles tend to be a little slower and it's been amplified this time with pandemic induced delays. I agree there is a lot of potential there and I'm looking forward at what is...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Do you ever buy the G-Fuel by youtuber video links on gamer channels. on the General Discussion board

    I think it's pretty easy to be on the high horse about not buying things advertised by streamers or anywhere else but as others have said it's very likely you have been influenced by that stuff at va...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic How much do you relate to gamepass paralysis, or emulator syndrome?. on the General Discussion board

    Certainly an idea I've struggled with in various forms since I've had enough disposable income to more or less buy games whenever I want. Probably became even worse with gamepass because I didn't eve...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Too busy or No time to watch videos. Do many of you watch videos in 1.5x speed or higher?. on the General Discussion board

    I reached a crossroads with my 'content grind' a couple of years ago where I had too many podcasts/too much video content I was interested in than I could keep up with in the time I had. I briefly fli...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Will you ever get back to playing your backlog games and clear them off your list?. on the General Discussion board

    Over the last year I've eliminated the idea of a backlog. I have finally stopped myself from buying games just because they are on a good discount because chances are I will never play them. I now ha...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Do you miss cheats devs had in games?. on the General Discussion board

    It's probably a case of modern games having more systems that work together on a deeper level now that altering something through cheats would potentially break everything. We regularly see games stru...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic When (If Ever) Did You Learn to Manually Save?. on the General Discussion board

    Starting with a PS1 means I have always been a single manual save person. Couldn't afford to waste those precious blocks by having duplicate saves. So far it hasn't come back to bite me, I've never ha...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Tying a bunch of PS+ benefits to owning an unobtainable PS5 is incredibly consumer unfriendly. on the PlayStation Plus board

    Offering perks to people who upgrade is perfectly fine to me and it's not as if they've said it will be taken away in a month. Yes technically you could log into a friend's PS5, claim the games and t...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic New podcasts this week?. on the Bombcast board

    I'm sure there will be podcasts. I don't think they've missed a week yet but they might be pre-recorded rather than live which is usually what shows up in the upcoming.

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Twitch Streamer Seems Like a Terrible Job. on the General Discussion board

    I found watching Twitch a terrible experience when I first came to it for many of the reasons mentioned: the flow being interrupted every 10 seconds for a shoutout/donation, the chat constantly telli...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic They should stop making AAA games for base xbox and ps4. on the General Discussion board

    I think you are massively overestimating a) the actual number of people that upgraded to the Pro/X and b) how much the average consumer notices/cares about the performance of games on the older system...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post The HotSpot - Episode 388.

    @scorch: The thing is most of them don't ever finish the bigger open world games. Maybe one of the team end up finishing the bigger releases but most of the time they start them and end up falling off...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Amazon Pre-Order. on the PlayStation 5 board

    @m0nty: Thats interesting. I got onto the EB Games website about 6 hours after they went up and was able to get one with no problems at all. Went in and traded the last of my PS4 games to pay it off t...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Hate towards Mario 3D Allstars Unwarranted. on the Super Mario 3D All-Stars board

    @doctordonkey said:@onemanarmyy said: But it's dissapointing that it straight up works and signals that expensive remakes like Crash, THPS & Spyro could just as well be straight ports for modern ...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic P.T. on PS5. on the Silent Hills board

    Yeah I'd guess PT doesn't actually count as a game. Side note: what a strange list of games to have that wont work

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Football Manager 21 is coming to Xbox. on the Football Manager board

    I'm really interested in how this does. Even the mainstream sports games have gotten pretty complex over the years just by virtue of having to add something new every year. FM Touch kind of feels lik...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Does Gamepass bother anyone?. on the Xbox Game Pass board

    I'm mostly fascinated by how this could possibly be a money making exercise for Microsoft and the other developers they have putting their games on gamepass longterm. Maybe they have it figured out bu...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic I'm getting tired of GB's dismissive attitude towards the new consoles. on the General Discussion board

    I do have an issue with the general attitude across the games industry and many hardcore fans of 'just get a PC'. The PC is no doubt fantastic value however as the OP said $1200 is a significant amoun...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Dan on Twitch. on the General Discussion board

    His streams aren't for me but I have no issues with him going down this path. The whole issue with it seemingly being a complete change from how he acted at GB is the whole difference between being o...
