• stinger061 created a list Game of the Year 2018 (sort of.....).
  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Can we talk about Spirit Mode and artificial difficulty?. on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate board

    As someone only interested in single player this is a bit of a worry. I've been burned once by Nintendo this year when I jumped in on Mario Tennis Aces and absolutely hated the single player which was...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Bethesda Refusing Refunds for Fallout 76. on the Fallout 76 board

    @humanity: Trailers are obviously designed to give the ideal look at a game but the real value for the customer comes from streams and YouTube videos. Of course some of these are paid for to show the ...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Bethesda Refusing Refunds for Fallout 76. on the Fallout 76 board

    It's 2018, access to information and raw video of games has never been greater so I don't think there is much of a leg to stand on regarding a refund for buying a 'bad' game.

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic What is wrong with this game on the One X?. on the Just Cause 4 board

    It's a shame because I feel like a super polished Just Cause game could be a massive success but each release seems to have just a few too many flaws. It seems forever trapped in the area most franch...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Epic Games launching new storefront. on the General Discussion board

    A better split for developers is definitely a good thing but I worry that 95% of the consumer base doesn't care at all about that. Epic will have to find some really big pro-consumer features to inclu...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Game of the Year expectation (again). on the Bombcast board

    @not_a_bumblebee: Last year they broke out the videos for the individual categories. Not ideal for listening on the go but I am definitely going to use them this year. Some of the categories can get t...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Those hard RDR2 turns on the Beastcast.... on the Red Dead Redemption 2 board

    @bmccann42: You are spot on here. It’s easy to forget GB is a business so things like this are always being considered. People who want the deep dive on single games probably need to go to YouTube.

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Why Buy a PlayStation Classic?. on the PlayStation board

    I wonder how many NES/SNES Classics are actually being used vs sitting on a shelf looking nice?

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Done with this until they introduce some kind of progression. on the Artifact board

    The business model of this game is so confusing to me. It seems to be the complete opposite of the model they have used to make Dota 2 one of the biggest games on the planet. Dota players are known fo...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic An Open Letter About The RDR2 Discussions Happening Here. on the Bombcast board

    I think people need to remember that everyone has different ways of playing games which can make a huge difference to how you enjoy them. By necessity the GB crew and all games media need to constant...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post 11/30/2018.

    The explosive duck is such a weird thing for them to give to you right away in Hitman 2. It basically lets you follow any mission story and do exactly what Vinny did on every mission. Of course that’s...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic A positive thread about what you're currently playing. on the General Discussion board

    Dragon Quest XI is my go to relax and listen to podcasts game at the moment. There is nothing particularly outstanding about it, the battle system and character progression are very basic but I’m havi...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic So this is out next week. on the Just Cause 4 board

    It feels like a weird time of year for this game. Most people are either playing the really big recent releases or have picked up deals on stuff they missed earlier in the year. I’ll probably play it ...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post 560: NO HAND SHAKE.

    The crew have often talked about having issues with the suspend/resume feature on the consoles but for me it's been my favourite feature of this generation and I can't remember a time I've ever lost ...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post PlayStation Classic.

    The original PlayStation was my introduction to video games and everything I played was PAL region. The Nintendo classics didn’t interest me but I’m excited for this to show up. Not really sure why so...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post 559: Chocolate Upgrade.

    I know Dota players have a reputation for pouring money into the game but surely they won’t go in big on a game that seems entirely pay to win? I thought we were past this kind of thing where paying f...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Trouble at Vice, hope Austin and co are ok!. on the General Discussion board

    I love Austin and Patrick but the content I've enjoyed from Waypoint has entirely been the free-form streams where the focus is almost entirely on the game and casual conversations (which seem to hav...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post Episode 182.

    I wonder how much of Dan's problems with RDR2 stem from the inherent need to get it finished and move onto new games coming out. Rorie mentioned on Twitter this week about how much he was enjoying pla...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post Hitman 2 Review.

    A few times now Brad has mentioned this game having less content than the first in terms of number of maps. This seems like a weird thing to bring up as I feel like you have to treat the full Hitman 1...
