    It seems like every time the suspend/resume feature comes up on a podcast everyone talks about having all sorts of problems with it. That’s easily my favourite feature of this generation and I’ve neve...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.

    @eribuster: I’m annoyed because I’d actually quite like to play a few of these ports but I’m not going to pay $60 for a single 5 year old game with very little extra content. Waiting for a sale isn’t ...

    This being full price is absolutely criminal. Nintendo don’t get anywhere near enough criticism for this, everyone just shrugs and says ‘oh well that’s the Nintendo tax’.

    I think I would have preferred if they came out up front and said 'Issues around labour and harassment are obviously huge problems for the industry and comparing that to issues around buggy games isn...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Dan's Red Dead 2 talk was frustrating. Not because of his take, because of his etiquette.. on the Bombcast board

    I think the higher number of people in the room now leads to these strongly pushed opinions and it's not unique to Dan. In fact, in the exact same discussion, I'm absolutely certain other members of ...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic I don't agree with criticism leveled against the women of God of War in the GOTY Podcast. on the God of War board

    I agree with Vinny in that I don't believe it's something to get too caught up in because that game has like 5 or 6 characters in total. It's not as if the game is packed full of male characters (I d...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post Holiday Specialtacular: Mario Party Party 11.

    I was considering buying this for a bit of light hearted fun but boy did this turn me off. Maybe not all the maps are like this but being so small with absolutely no variation throughout the game seem...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Will there be a Hitsmas this year?. on the General Discussion board

    Ironically now that most of the crew are more confident with the mechanics it's likely any Hitman content will be shorter. A lot of the chaos and hilarious moments in the past stemmed from indecision...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2018: Day Two Deliberations.

    I disagree with Abby on the women in GoW argument (Vinny is right, there's only about 5 real characters in the entire game and all the male characters are equally flawed as the females) but I think s...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post Game of the Year 2018: Day One Deliberations.

    Just got started but just want to say I love the format change. I was planning on skipping most of the GOTY content because I have found in the past the discussions always descended into comparing th...

  • 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...

    @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.

    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...
