• stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic ITS NOT for everyone...So what is?. on the General Discussion board

    I think it's common use in an unfortunate case of knowing how comments sections and people on the internet tend to react to things. The seemingly common idea that opinions on a thing can be 'wrong' i...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Playstation Now adds downloads. on the General Discussion board

    Hopefully this I will mean the service is rolled out more widely. Our poor internet in Australia means streaming was never a viable option here but maybe now that will change.

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Playstation Classic - Out December 3rd. on the PlayStation board

    Of course this is a ridiculous nostalgia item and it's not going to have many of the games I truly love from that era (the Gran Turismo games would be a nightmare of licencing) but I've just gone and...

    I beat this when it came out and also never used the castle lock to teleport straight to the boss. I'm an idiot

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Your favourite builds and other tips and tricks. on the Dead Cells board

    I've been thinking about it and I'm getting very similar feelings with this to what I ended up having with FTL. I absolutely love the general gameplay and it feels like there are so many fun and varie...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic What's your favorite special/limited edition console?. on the General Discussion board

    I love the look of a lot of special edition consoles but I've never been in a position to buy one. I can never justify the expense for a new console just because it looks cool. The only times I'm in ...

    @sethmode: Crypt of the Necrodancer had a cool option where you could practice against single enemies to learn their patterns without having to run all the way through the game and I wish Dead Cells h...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Your favourite builds and other tips and tricks. on the Dead Cells board

    I've been messing with some more status and damage over time builds and they are a lot of fun during normal levels but seem to fall apart when you get to boss fights. Combinations of of freezing/wolf...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic My only gripe with this game, the music.. on the Dead Cells board

    I've also resorted to turning the music off and either running Spotify in the background or GB Infinite on the side. The music isn't terrible but doesn't feel essential to the game experience or creat...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic IGN's Dead Cells Review Has Been Removed. on the General Discussion board

    I kind of feel for the other members of the IGN staff who have generally handled this quite well. I don't think criticism of 'well you shouldn't have hired a Youtuber' is fair as there are hundreds of...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Your favourite builds and other tips and tricks. on the Dead Cells board

    My biggest advice is to myself and it’s ‘SLOW DOWN!!!’. I’ve probably only done about 10 runs but at the end of each one I’m always annoyed at myself for getting too confident and dying to something c...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Do you care about performance enhancing drugs in sports?. on the Off-Topic board

    The sports I have most interest in are generally team games where the effect of PED's are somewhat reduced. Sure you might gain some athletic advantage but most team sports are more about decision mak...

    On the issue of feeling represented by white characters in games I have to say that's not something I've ever felt. This is almost certainly a result of white male characters dominating 95% of media t...

    I picked up a Switch after the Game of the Year podcasts last year and although I’ve enjoyed some time with it I do regret the decision. Breath of the Wild is excellent and I’ve had a ton of fun with ...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post Unprofessional Fridays: 07/13/2018.

    Every time I see Onrush I think about buying it but it has the feel of a game that won’t maintain a player base beyond a couple of months so I can’t justify it at full price

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post Quick Look: Danger Zone 2.

    I want to like anything these guys do but they aren’t making it easy. Crash mode in Burnout was cool as one part of a very good game, I don’t feel like a slimed down version of it is enough to warrant...

    I'm happy in that it should mean the game reaches more people and will be more successful but I think it will make for a worse gameplay experience.The all in one release means a lot of people will tr...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Sony hints that handheld portable gaming will return and is being experimented on. on the PlayStation Vita board

    With the increased talk of streaming stuff recently combined with the success of the Switch I can see why they’d be looking at it. I actually think they messed up by not pushing remote play on the Vit...
