  1. If we could patent it perhaps we could also promote it for use on guns owned by crazy people and wannabe thugs...they have like 10 puzzles before they can fire a round...if they miss one picture the gun blows up in their face...captcha this, a$$hole!...the possibilities are endless...
  2. I think captcha should be used at job interviews and school exams as part of the preliminary culling process...make it mandatory on vehicle startup of people convicted of dui offenses...driving home intoxicated again?...captcha this...haha...
  3. quoted from the divorce-online.uk web site... "It [divorce-online.uk] has received 200 divorce petitions since January 1st 2018 where addiction to Fortnite and other online games has been cited as one of the reasons for divorce. A spokesperson for the company said” addiction to drugs, alcohol and gambling have often been cited as reasons for relationship breakdowns but the dawn of the digital revolution has introduced new addictions.” “These now include online pornography, online gaming and social media, so it is no surprise to us that more and more people are having relationship problems because of our digital addictions. ” “These numbers equate to roughly 5% of the 4,665 petitions we have handled since the beginning of the year and as one of the largest filers of divorce petitions in the UK, is a pretty good indicator.” the numbers might be a little skewed but it's a shame so many divorces are occurring...not to get too philosophical but it would seem that many people in society are lacking doing things with a sense of purpose...instead they are turning to and prioritizing things that are somewhat meaningless with the goal of making themselves feel good in the short term...having $ex, doing drugs, playing video games, or any other addictive activity that feels good is most certainly enjoyable but likely won't lead to a very fulfilling life story...we can expect divorce rates to rise as we find more and more ways to please ourselves (and companies trying to exploit our seeming weakness to short-term pleasure) without looking at and making changes to the quality of our lives and relationships outside of these activities...two cents...
  4. I frequent 2 local gaming stores...one is a big franchise, the other is one-of-a-kind...i walk in and ask what's good...the staff at the franchise one change a lot so they usually ask which platform and then suggest what I assume are recent titles...the other shop has had the same few guys working there for a long time so they kind of know what I tend to like...after their suggestions I have a look at the case...if there are words like "epic", "co-op", "must play" then i'm already considering it...a quick read of the description and look at the pictures on the back and I'll make a decision...i might qualify as having disposable income so I have a pretty big collection...i do also randomly check the PSN store as well if I see an ad that has game art that looks cool or a new release from a series that I enjoy(ed)...not really rocket science...
  5. I thought a bit on how this could work and what might be a good way to display it...perhaps just having it in the PSN profile might be best since an overhaul of forum profile doesn't seem necessary... on the bottom right under "so-and-so" 's guides or milestones we could have a header that says "active sessions"...it could display all sessions we are active in whether host or participant... left column of this box could be time and date...middle could be an icon with the game that is being boosted and number of available spaces (if any) under it, and right side could be the "view" option that links to the session in question...kind of like the "upcoming sessions" feature that appears when clicking on a game...thoughts and possibilities?...
  6. niko bellic is the hero we all need...and is also a great bowling partner...just ask his cousin... side note : my son's best friend at school's name is niko (seriously it is)...there are no peters or bruces in his class...this indicates that gta is better as well...haha...
  7. on that note then...my son had the choice of spiderman or batman shoes for school and chose ninja turtle and batman ones...so my vote goes to batman being better...cowabunga... side note : sadly they didn't have any gta ones readily available or I'm sure he would've chosen them for both pairs...to make up for the lack of quality products, I taught him how to steal a car, which we took home from the shoe store...don't blame me, blame the shoes...
  8. just curious, how is this game compared to the gta franchise?...
  9. I would highly recommend creating a gaming session next time...they are perfect for gamers in your situation...
  10. yoz, I thought it might be interesting to see when people have ongoing gaming sessions on their forum and/or psn profile...this could include not only ones thay are hosting but those they are participating in as well... the reasoning...i join a topic, see a gamer of interest who seems to have a common philosophy and think "I'd be interested in gaming with this person"...currently, I'd need to do one of several things...check their profile or the gaming sessions to see if we have any mp games in common ...send them a pm asking if they'd like to join up online at some point... what if I could just click on their profile and see if they have any gaming sessions that are ongoing?...and what if I see that they have 10 gaming sessions running at the same time on the same day?...perhaps it could help us out in meeting up with like-minded gamers?...or avoid ones that seem less dedicated?... the epitome of gaming to me is to play a fun game in online co-op...i'm also a proud member of the community...i think it could be fun if the site could enhance joining up with fellow gamers with something like the above idea...thoughts?... thanks...
  11. just a quick update that @PerryToxtethhas been very generous in wanting to have their winnings go back to the psnp community in the form of premium memberships...the new winners are @Uchiha_Snake__ @Kittet3 @monkeydluffy512 @Willreaper41 @SyIaris & @willythom88...thanks and congrats... @monkeydluffy512 for whatever reason I wasn't able to award you lifetime membership, only one for a year...feel free to get in touch with me when it expires and I can upgrade you again...cheers...
  12. alright, as promised, here are my final thoughts on this year's camp and the announcement for the giveaway...i was going to wait till all winners had received their prizes but am not sure how long that will take so... first off, a big thanks to all who participated...it was an honour to be able to take over the event and, i have to say, it broadened my perspective on a few things...i think in today's day and age it is not uncommon to see a trend of divisiveness within communities over personal opinions and what could be considered very petty differences...in our gaming community here, we see a variety of conflicts arise over things like completion vs rarity (and then psn vs psnp rarity), easy vs. difficult, legit vs. illegit, fun vs. not fun, quantity vs. quality, good vs. bad, your profile vs. mine, etc, etc, etc...this often makes it easy to overlook the positive evolution that is occurring in other places all around the site...to me, this event and ones like it are a perfect example of what i really like about psnp...a variety of people, playing a variety of games in a variety of manners, sharing a variety of experiences where the common goal is just to have some fun doing something we collectively enjoy...playing video games... that being said, i must confess that the first time i updated everyone's stats i was very impressed by all of the people who joined this event and, so much so, that i ended up creating my own sort of hidden agenda...it might seem selfish but let me expand a bit before judging, please...now you see, i love multiplayer in games and particularly online co-op...just my personal opinion, but i find it a bit funny to be part of a site like this and proclaim "i hate multiplayer"...why?...well, i guess to me trophies are kind of secondary and gameplay and enjoyment are always at the top of my list...i find it much more satisfying to bust a bunch of heads with a group of friends than to talk with other people about busting npc's heads solo...one of my goals of being on this site is always to find like-minded people to bust heads with...haha...i have absolutely no judgments towards people who dislike multiplayer or prefer to play singleplayer games...to each their own...i tend to use psnp as a sort of form of social media to share ideas and learn more about people's real life personalities with the long-term goal of gaming together at some point...i stated before that i don't check people's profiles out very much (and still don't) and doing so for this event kind of opened up my eyes a bit to the humanity that we all possess below our anonymous ids...my hidden agenda?...well, i made a semi-serious goal of meeting up with at least one person who was participating in this event if the circumstances seemed right...the last few weeks, i spent playing with tribesmen from other cabins, tossing aside the list of games i had intended to play...and it was totally worth it...had a ton of fun and hopefully the people i met up with online can also say the same...i am 99% certain that this would not of happened had i not participated in camp so am grateful for the circumstances that created this opportunity... is he going to announce the winners soon?...haha...yes...they were chosen using a random number generator and i am working on sending the people their prizes privately...i have asked @BlindMango to overlook this process so i can assure you all that it is being handled legitimately and as professionally as possible...without further ado...the winners are...*drumroll*...congratz to : @Briste - tribe leader...us psn code... @PerryToxteth - cabinmate...(has yet to get back to me on region) psn code... @Inuty - non-premium member - lifetime premium membership... in closing, i'd like to thank everyone one last time for allowing this event to continue and to conclude as well as it has...i appreciate having been able to spend my summer here at camp and i'm sure we'll bump into one another in other sections of the site...if we're lucky, it'll be in the gaming sessions...haha...cheers... p.s. @Cassylvania lovely drawing...lovely...i also drew one but it was so bad my wife threw it out unknowingly..."what?...that thing?...i thought it was garbage"...haha...
  13. alright ladies and gents, I think we've finally hit september 1st in all inhabited places in the world...this means that camp has officially reached game over status... a tad busy right now but i'll be updating everyone's stats one last time within the next 24 hours and dropping a few final words...i'll also be posting and getting in touch with the winners of the draws...the latter via PM...please stay tuned...cheers...
  14. "Ffs, please send help.. All I can do is complain about how incompetent randoms are, and hate every minute of this shitty online experience. Yet I keep playing? Why?" haha...remember this?...^ hopefully we were able (and will continue) to convince you that the gta v experience can be a totally pleasant one...i'm sure I can speak on behalf of the rest of the team in saying that we all had a blast...looking forward to the rest of the criminal mastermind runs ahead of us... with regards to roles : it's not really about the 25% that we each play imo...it's all about the collective 100% that makes it fun so you deserve just as much credit as the rest of us...without u, there's no i...without i, there's no u...and without d, no dui (which more than one of our teammates has been guilty of over the course of completing heists)...haha...cheers... side note : I'm assuming you'll be ready to take on gta iv after you're done with this one?... 2nd side note : apologies...off thread topic...
  15. can I ask a question out of curiosity since I remember seeing your dispute...it is not intended to be insulting, really just wonder what you might reply...off topic...apologies... if you had a choice between the following two options, which would you go for?... 1 - all trophies earned before you joined the site were not displayed... 2 - hide game(s) that was/were cheated before you joined the site but see every other trophy on your profile... i'm using before you joined the site as a cutoff since technically someone else could've added your profile before then without you knowing...this would mean that you could be completely unaware of the leaderboards, rules, flags, etc. of the site...
