  2. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Indeed, one side effect or unintended consequence if you like (though perhaps intentional?) of these monthly subscriptions is that the price of what used to be standard, boxed, physical games, do seem to be lowering at a significant rate, so if you've got any old PS4 or Xbox One games (soon to apply to PS5 and Xbox One X games possibly) that you don't play any more, then it might be worth considering selling them, while they are still worth even a few pounds. Of course, if you don't subscribe to these services and still buy physical games, chances are games will be a lot cheaper, and become more affordable at a quicker rate, so if you intend to buy one or two games throughout the year and don't mind waiting, then you probably won't be paying much for them. Though I suppose if you only play one or two games a year, you could sign up for a trial of one of these services, play the games you wanted to check out, and then cancel. Either way, modern physical games are seemingly becoming almost disposable on Xbox and Playstation platforms with the introduction of these services. It's nice to have options, but at the rate things seem to be going, physical games could well be phased out, at least on Xbox and Playstation, with the only way to get them being limited print runs for those that still want them. Personally, I'm not too bothered any more, I've collected games for a while, and I've often advocated for physical games in the past but if you don't form that much of an attachment to modern games, in the same way as a lot of older games, then they might as well just be cheap and accesible. Thousands of digital distractions at your finger tips, all on a pay-monthly service... I can see the appeal, even if it's something I'm unlikely to invest in.
  3. Trying to sell Green Hill Zone with candle propoganda is bloody hilarious!

    Purely anecdotal, but I'm in the last quarter of Final Fantasy 13, and even on GamePass, it still holds no value. Utterly awful game.
  5. @Cube Any chance of a review of these candles?

    One thing that always bothers me about subscription services is that games lose all value. Not immediately gripped on the game? Oh well, it was "free" so just move on to the many other games you have access to When you spend £50 upwards on a game (or less if you get it after a few months), you're more likely to give it a chance to get going. I wonder how many great games have been passed over or received less attention because they didn't immediately present their best content at the beginning of the game. Also, if people aren't paying for a game (apart from the fraction of the subscription price that goes to the developer), game developers will make their money elsewhere. Spoilers: more "pursuasive" microtransactions. I do like gamepass from a consumer point of view, but I do wonder what the future of gaming looks like when/if it becomes the norm.

    Tier 3 sounds like it could expensive unless they lower the price of "tier 1". They should add Crunchyroll&/Funimation subs to sweeten the deal.
  8. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    I've pretty much abandoned the PS4 version. Might pick up the PS5 version when it comes out and see if it's a good improvement.

    "But what will it mean to their bottom line!" The beauty of Game Pass is that Xbox's first party line-up are all on there day 1. That surely won't be the case for Playstation, though I suppose maybe it doesn't need to be quite as good and enticing as GP, something that's 'good enough' might do for them. PS Plus has been pretty terrible for a while now, so anything to make the service better would be welcome. The slow trickle of PS5 games doesn't help though tbf.

    Schreier with those PlayStation Game Pass competitor scoops, well...kind of not? No first party games Day One. Still, sounds like it could be an impressive package depending on its price. If it works out at £10/month or less a year I could see myself biting, but otherwise I'd probably just check it out in quiet months (which aren't really a thing anymore ). I just want to play the good Battlefront II, maybe force Metal Gear Solid on some friends, and see more people play Suikoden and Suikoden II. Here's hoping!
  12. Oh right, yeah. Living Dex. Duh, my bad.
  13. I have, it's the Palkia, though technically I've got some from older games, but I could say the same for the rest I guess
  14. Something just hit me with something you said earlier. 103? That's not right. There's only 3 Mythical Pokémon not legally available in BDSP at the moment, Darkrai, Shaymin and Arceus. Have you got a Phione?
  15. So Masuda doesn't give you a new pointless piece of paper for catching all 151 in the Sinnoh Dex as opposed to seeing them, so this will have to do: Thanks for your help @Glen-i! It's the first time I've done this since the original Diamond, and I think I may have caught a Pokémon-catching fever need to try and hold it off until Legends: Arceus!
  16. Marvel's Phase 4

    Just got tickets for Spider-man 3 on December 15th! Really looking forward to seeing it!
  17. Thanks as always Glen, appreciate it!
  18. Right, that's all of them now. And once again, the two of us alone have made this thread "Hot!" Good work!
  19. I'll send over spares of the exclusives for the others if that's okay?
  20. After the Electabuzz trade might need to back out for a sec just to add the Dubious Disc to Porygon2
  21. Okay cool Egg is ready, Link Code is 11235813 Shall we start with the Trade Evo's?
  22. Will do. Also, did you need a Larvitar? I think it's an exclusive and I have one, but I think I've somehow avoided mentioning it until now. Can breed one if you need!
