  1. Nothing much for me this year. I'm currently spending huge amounts for my record collection (collecting MiniDisc is not cheap). I've been tracking my own spendings for the past 20 years. This is what it looks like for 2021. Forza Horizon 5 will most likely be the last game that was added to that list this year (and the foreseeable future). The video game industry just disgusts me at this point. Edit: I just noticed that 2021 is the first year since 1995 without a single physical game. Times really have changed...
  2. I was simply stating that playing on PC is vastly more comfortable due to all the nice things I could never have on consoles. You can plug in every headset, racing wheel, HDD or whatnot without worrying about compatibility issues. My PS4 couldn't even read fucking CDs! I don't have these issues anymore. Everything just works just as it should. And playing at a high framerate has nothing to do with any form of "superiority". It's simply way more pleasant. But how will you know if you've never experienced this yourself? You can't. So please, stop projecting your personal issues, fears and insecurities on me or anybody else who left "your" peer group. Learn to accept people who are different and prefer different experiences. Peace.
  3. When I die, I want my teammates to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

  4. Well, as someone who has just departed consoles after 30 years to switch to PC, the sheer amount of exclusive titles were one of the key reasons. There are entire genres that simply don't exist on consoles due to the limitations of the imput devices. VR is another factor. Compared to Half-Life Alyx, everything on consoles so far looks and feels like a tech demo. A clumsy first attempt. The technical supremacy is probably the thing that first comes to mind. And it's true. Playing "The Witcher 3" in 100+ fps simply isn't possible on consoles. And once you got used to these kind of frame rates, everything below 60 becomes unbearable. Oh, and you don't need a fucking subscription to play online (certain MMOs excluded). PS Plus and XBL Gold add up very quickly. But the most important factor for me was the freedom to mod your games with no limits. You can do whatever you want. Nobody will keep you from turning Skyrim into a patched game. On consoles, you're left with what was officially put out. Just to give you a very small glimpse: Oh, and games are cheaper, too. For me, there is no turning back.
  5. Loyal to console brands? The question itself is insulting! I'm loyal to good games, regardless of platform. I'm currently in the process of joining the Master Race™. The new consoles have little to nothing to offer that I cannot get on PC in much higher quality. A handful of exclusive console titles are nothing compared to the thousands of exclusive titles on PC. Open the spoiler and tell me: Why should I care?
  6. It isn't. Obsidian is wholly owned by Microsoft now. They make the rules.
  7. I've switched to PC for obvious reasons. Consoles have become obsolete. But that's for a different thread.
  8. You don't spend 7,5 billion squid to bolster the competition. Minecraft is the only Microsoft IP that comes to mind that has to be cross-platform due to the nature of the game. Everything else will be exclusive to Xbox and PC. It's naive to believe in a different outcome. The contracts are only valid for Xbox and/or PC. You cannot just add another platform without negotation with the IP holders.
  9. That doesn't make things better. The game was made BC for XBONE years ago and the Steam version already had mods for 4K support. Like I said, a low-effort move.
  10. A typical low-effort move by Ubisoft. Giving away an eight year old game as part of a season pass is just beyond me.
  11. No, the game doesn't suck. I have a GT pro player friend and he loves the game. He even raced the Nordschleife for 27 hours for charity. Now what?
  12. Stuff like this doesn't need to have its own thread. And just for clarification: You always race against players that have a similar SR and DR. Increase your rating and you'll be matched with the good guys. Distance driven doesn't equal skill.
  13. Uhm, just on a side note: Microsoft's BC programme is completely different from what PS2 offers in terms of PS1 games. You don't actually play the game once bought digitally or on disc but rather an adjusted version downloaded from the Microsoft store. The disc only acts as a license key. But the actual question was if it's possible. Of course it's possible. If hobby programmers are able to code a somwhat functional emulator for PC, imagine what the actual platform holder would be able to do. But it's not gonna happen. Barely anyone uses BC functionality. I currently have about 50 people in my friends list on XBL. Twice I've seen anyone play something released on Xbox 360. Twice! In over a year! Have a look at this picture: 216 current players for the most played PS3 only game. That's pathetic! People demanding stuff like this wouldn't use it anyway. It's just a loud minority. Probably the same fucking minority that puts pronouns in their Twitter bio and demanded Shenmue III for two decades (which became the worst selling title in the series).
  14. You can get Dead Space way cheaper on disc.
  15. This will be my next and final purchase on PS Store before I leave consoles for good. At this point in time there is no real reason to stick to consoles anymore. Both Sony and Nintendo are unreliable platform holders. Microsoft, however, has basically infinite money to keep things running and Steam exists since 2003. Sony's moronic decisions, the CMOS issues, the storefront closures plus several other things conviced me to switch to PC. My usual argument for sticking to consoles is that you can still buy games physically. Everyone can easily see that this won't be the case for much longer. And before I keep investing truckloads of money into ecosystems I barely trust anymore, I'll simply leave the sinking ship before I regret it. After 13 years on PSN and 31 years on consoles it's time to say adios.
  16. I know it's a bit lazy, but I simply copy my post from last week.
  17. These issues are not new. About three weeks ago I installed Gran Turismo 5 again and manually checked for a patch. However, the one I got was not the recent one. Normally when you try to use the online mode these days it says the online functions have been discontinued. The patch I got told me that there is no online play available for my version. I have now deleted all install data for the game and once again checked for an update. Nothing. No patch at all. There some serious shit going on on Sony's side.
  18. If you're into dungeon crawler RPGs, Legasista is worth checking out. The game never received a physical version outside of Japan and is only available on PS3. It currently costs $9,99 in NA.
  19. He is a 40 year old husband and father of two. You cannot always be the 25 year old angry brat. Also keep in mind what a shitload of fuck YouTube as a platform has become. Videos get demonetized very quickly these days for literally nothing.
  20. Bad ads volume 666. Just saw this near a bus stop.

      The grape juice is just so Rachel...

  21. People, please stick to games that are digital only. Games like God of War and the likes can easily be grabbed used anwhere.
  22. Four TellTale games that mustn't be missed out on: Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space Tales of Monkey Island All of them are highly recommended. Especially Strong Bad has some really crude humour and never got the attention it deserves. All games are still available on PSN and consist of five episodes each.
  23. Another one that just came to my mind is the predecessor to Rocket League, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars Released only on PS3 and never got a retail release.
  24. I highly recommend this one! The game was free on PS Plus many years ago and has been completely forgotten. It was developed by Japan Studio and was never released physically. Very beautiful game. Definitely check it out.
