• 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...

    @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...

    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...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic This game went into full release today and it's incredible. on the Hades board

    Hades was my GOTY last year even in early access and there is every chance it will be right up there again. I worry that the term 'rougelite' will turn off a lot of people too quickly. It's truly bri...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels VI.

    Brad's issue with playing Mario after Spelunky is why when I played my first Mario game about 5 years ago (always had Sony consoles as a kid) I could never play more than an hour before putting it do...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Are you using a game streaming service?. on the General Discussion board

    The idea is cool and it's great that the tech works but personally I'm never in a situation where I want to/can play games but am not in front of a TV or computer. Playing a console style game on a p...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Which of your favourite roguelites/run-based games are too dang long OR too dang short?. on the General Discussion board

    Rogue Legacy had the balance fairly right in terms of giving you reward for each run but also ensuring you didn't have to slowly grind through the low level areas if you just wanted to keep trying whi...

  • stinger061 posted a message in the forum topic Which of your favourite roguelites/run-based games are too dang long OR too dang short?. on the General Discussion board

    The biggest turnoff for me in roguelite games are when the early game is trivialised by upgrades/experience and just becomes a time sink to get through. A single successful run of the game may be a pe...

  • stinger061 posted a message on the post "Community" Co-Op Corner: Spelunky With Will Smith.

    Co-Op Spelunky is hilarious. Things that are normally harmless like throwing pots or setting off arrow traps end up causing a chain reaction that hits your partner in a very funny way. I hope it's bee...

    I absolutely agree with you. If it did what most people seem to want (good guys who are good beat the bad guys who are bad) it would just be another run of the mill video game like so many others. No...
