  1. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    You know that most of the anti-consumer things I listed are still happening right now? Including the attempt to rise the price yesterday. Their attempt to rise the price also plays into their Game Pass strategy - by increasing the price they will push people onto Game Pass. Game Pass is praised for being cheap but it's pretty clear once it has enough uptake they will up the price, just like they tried to do here with XBL Gold. And if it becomes the norm then people will lose their game ownership.
  2. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Worth bearing in mind that online gaming was free until they started charging for it, and now the other 2 console manufacturers have copied them. Up until now they also haven't allowed you to play F2P without a Gold subscription, and they tried to implement always online and no game sharing at the start of the X1 generation. And their first party games often have microtransactions. If anything they've always been at the forefront of anti-consumer moves.

    Aye, this is the X1 policy reversals all over again. The arrogance never went anywhere.
  4. Thanks for reminding me that this was out, I'd forgotten that he's pretty good at releasing his books quickly.
  5. What Do You Want From Nintendo In 2021?

    I do think if they've already abandoned Switch in the sense of bringing (non-remaster) new games to the system that that would be kind of crazy. That'd be about 3 and a half years of support.

    Fair enough, there are obvious judgements being made here, and we definitely don't know your situation. If you are suddenly finding yourself in hard times then that really sucks and I definitely wouldn't begrudge you getting a refund. Perhaps if you find yourself in better circumstances down the road you can buy another copy to support the devs since it sounds as though you did enjoy it.

    Quite easily, drahkon is clearly a chancer who wants to have his cake and eat it. [emoji14]
  8. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    For a Sony console that is also well supported by big third party games this is really good.
  9. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    For me it's a case of at least 10 seconds finding the cable then a few seconds more plugging it in, then setting it down. It probably takes me just a few seconds to slot it in the bay on the charging dock, though. I keep the dock right next to where I play.
  10. What Have You Bought?

    That is one very cool looking record.
  11. Fair enough, there are geeks on this forum. But honestly, if we discounted every game because it used the same engine or assets then there'd be a whoooole lot of games we couldn't could because of Unreal Engine 4.
  12. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    I have a bunch of cables plugged into an extender so yeah, it's not instant for me to grab the right cable.
  13. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    I can definitely recommend the official charging station, if you can find one. The controller slots in easily and it saves looking for and hooking up the cable each time.
  14. Feels like you're moving the goalposts here. You said that that the Wii U's first party library runs rings around the Switch's, then when people started reeling off game after game that the Switch had that the Wii U didn't you're then more or less saying "you're forgetting they've combined their handheld library into it". It is a fair discussion that they've combined their outputs and arguably we're seeing less from them overall, but that doesn't change the situation that there was more of significance released on Switch than Wii U (and the Switch is still live and kicking). We're also seeing discussions here about reusing game engines and whether games were built on previous Wii U games. That's not really the point, is it? If a Nintendo game came out on Switch that wasn't released at an earlier date on a previous console then it counts. Nobody really cares if they saved time and money by building on a previous engine, that's geek stuff!
  15. They invested a lot of money into developing/manufacturing it but it wasn't well spent. There were android devices being sold for peanuts that were made of better materials and to a better spec than the Gamepad. It's made of a cheap feeling plastic, the whole things feels like plastic, and they didn't sufficiently weight it so it felt like a premium product. You can't tell me it's a well built product of quality - as I said before, it feels like a Fisher Price toy.
