Re: A Look Into The 3DS Screen Ideal

This has been a known thing for a long time. My counter point is, who cares (from a technical standpoint, it is fun to fathom why this happened)? Viewing angles are kind of pointless because you have to be looking at a 3DS straight on for the effect to work anyway, and as personal device will anyone...

Re: Videogame Deals

Not sure when this appeared, but Call of Duty: Black Ops III on PS4 is now a June PlayStation Plus freebie. It wasn’t there when I scooped up the rest at the start of the month, so maybe others missed it too. The perfect price for me to play a CoD game! It was actually announced at E3 as a surprise...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

We are stuck in a bit of a TV rut at the moment and can't find anything to watch. We must have watched the first two or three episodes of a dozen series over the last few weeks, but either I'm not on board, or my girlfriend isn't enjoying it, or we both don't like it. Loads of stuff, Westworld, Sne...

Re: Rise of the Far-Right Worldwide

He certainly doesn't know what the hell he's talking about with regards to the Australian gay marriage plebiscite. A big part of the problem was this was a "solution" put forward by a government who ran on a platform of financial responsibility, getting rid of crippling debt, reducing wasteful spend...

Re: Videogame Criticism

I'm echoing KSub for some elaboration and specific examples because I just don't see it otherwise. Just to clarify, you "don't see" the influence of The Last of Us in two films that you've never watched? Um, okay. Fair enough. Let me clarify a bit then. I was more referring to how TLoU's story them...

Re: Videogame Criticism

Feels like you're giving credit to Last of Us for everything. That story has been told a thousand times before in zombie/zombie-related media, does The Girl With All the Gifts (I haven't actually seen this movie) actually owe anything to TLoU or just the general scope of zombie media since Dawn of t...

Re: Videogame Criticism

But as you said, emotions are running high and perhaps now is when publications like gamesTM feel that they need to take a stand on matters. It wasn't always so. For example, I don't seem to remember their review of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes commenting on that utterly reprehensible moment o...

Re: Games Collection: To sell or not to sell

Generally speaking, from my experience, people always think that their game collections are worth more than they actually are, or are offered. When they hear/see the figure they decide to keep them, for multiply reasons. This is the most important thing. Everybody overvalues what they've got. I use...

Re: Games Collection: To sell or not to sell

I'd say hold on to them, unless they're cluttering up the place and taking up a ton of space that you need, or you need a quick injection of emergency cash and you need to sell. You could even minimise the space issue by getting one of those big disc wallets (my brother and I in the days of the disc...

Re: Tech support - low laptop WiFi speed

Have you tried it via ethernet cable? That way you could at least determine if it's something up with your the built in wi-fi receiver or a problem with the settings on your computer.

Alternatively maybe buy one of those usb wifi dongles to see if that has the same problem

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Seems like Nintendo actually has some decent long term plans this go around. Maybe time to invest long term? Also I think people vastly underestimate how strong cardboard can be. I worked in a shipping warehouse a few years back and (depending on type) those fuckers can take an almighty beating. We ...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I wonder if it's also partly because forums/messageboards are a dying part of the internet and most discussion is moving to Twitter which just isn't really conducive to in depth discussion and analysis. It also restricts the types of opinions to draw from, I consider this forum to be healthier than ...

Persona 5! Only 118 hours!
I clocked 103 hours on mine, although admittedly I kinda skipped the voice acting for a lot of the dialogue after the casino palace because there was a ton of long explanation and exposition.

What did you think of it?

Thoughts on the changes to the way fees are handled?
