I know right... Especially my glass collection, the light just shines so beautifully through them.
It's absolutely amazing
I just remembered a certain video of guy involving a jar.

Please children, be safe out there. Glass is a wonderful thing, but the dangers are endless. Ensure 911 is on speed dial before you reach for the lube.

If anyone has something bad to say about this bad boy, I don't think you belong on this forum. I absolutely WILL bribe a mod to ban you.

Think about this picture every time you trash talk a PS.

I hate the fact that I know what video you are talking about... And it still makes my stomach turn all these years later

Dude, that's saying that being gay is a bad thing. You're being homophobic right there.

You are all supportive of homophobic behaviour. Not cool.

Eish, should’ve checked carb earlier today. Facepalm and “haha”’are next to each other... That little typo incident was a biggie :oops:

Definitely didn’t mean to do that. As fake as it sounds its true

I'm offended that you didn't log in earlier to see me taking offense.

No dude, I get it. I grew up with mates who would label anything they didn't like as 'gay'. It was 'the norm'.

I take more offense to the stupidity of the joke than actually anything else.

QuestionAnswer
Are you homophobic? No
Do you randomly laugh at stupid shit on a forum only using a laughing emoji? Yes

That's it, you're homophobic. The truth, the only truth, and so help you God.

What a beauty.

Back then, exclusives were really REALLY a huge thing!

Never mind, reading now it went up the other valve

Thought it was like the Asian guy who decided he will screw a hex nut and it got stuck. They had to grind it off :ROFLMAO:

@ZApacman oz pricing for PS5 is AU$750, sounds a helluva lot better than R12k. Not a fair comparison comparing PS5 games to xbox one, need to compare to series x or s games.

I totally agree with you R12k is a bit much, but considering what you're getting, i still reckon it's a great deal.

Yeah sure at R10k you could buy a 3070(hopefully), then you just have a gpu. 8 core zen cpu, (3700x?) Nevermind the nvme ssd + ram.
If only they'd let it run windows I'd probably buy it as a console/pc combo.

I'm telling you, man, an Xbox Series X with a "Windows Mode" would have been an absolute killer, why don't they do it? They flippen OWN Windows! Piracy concerns?

Didn't Sony have a Linux option on PS3 at one time?

I couldn't be happier exclusives are becoming less common, means it's becoming more a hardware/experience competition. Especially with most of the platforms x86 compatible anyway. In my utopia I'd just have to buy a game once, and play it on any and all of them, preferably with crossplay, how else am I supposed to pwn them controller users with my mouse and keyboard?

Probably coz at that price, it's way cheaper than a pc, quite possible they're selling the hardware at a loss like sony did with the ps3, making money by making you pay to play online and all their other monetisation schemes

That's a shame, would have been badass to pop a button and be playing Dota 2, Counter Strike or World of Warcraft on your Xbox, but yeah, that money wouldn't have carried over.

A "Windows Mode" subscription would have been cool, maybe tie it to Gamepass Ultimate or something, but it would probably subtract from Xbox native software sales.

Would be cool to have a semi-closed KB/M native hybrid PC mode, like a Valve mode or a Blizzard mode, where they can negotiate cuts.

There are some monster games still not available to consoles.

Some games are meant for PC only (due to already established playerbase)

You don't have the dexterity with a controller to pop certain hotkeys while simultaneously looking around. Games like Dota will never get to console. If it does expect everyone's MMR to drop into oblivion cos imagine you use thumbsticks to move camera around and pop spells then need to practice to use thumbsticks accurately on a target specifically trying to dodge your anticipated move.

Other games may fare better. Also would be a massive opportunity for Sony, Microsoft not so much because they will pull people off PC

Also I am happy some awesome Sony exclusives came to Steam (Crash Bandicoot for example)

That's true, and apparently the controller guys were smoked because of it

Some games it would just be unfair to include on another platform. Still would be great, especially when VR becomes the norm

You really should check out COD Modern Warfare, they throw everyone together, and the balance is extremely fair, it's actually quite challenging with KB/M as you don't have access to Aim Assist, it's a fair trade off, there were many people in doubt they could pull it off, but they wouldn't be a multi Billion $ franchise if they couldn't.

But yeah stuff like RTS games would not be fair at all.

Ah nice, didn't think about auto assist. Makes sense.

We went from crying in 2020 1 - 2 months ago to being happy about tech releases 🙈
