  1. nickyzhere liked a post in a topic by Verethragna in Call To AJSA To Insta-Ban Threads About PC vs Consoles.   
    While I do agree that this could be interpreted as a form of censorship, I believe the only people who would start flame threads in response to a rule of this sort would be the same people who would start flame wars in such threads in the first place.
     
    In my experience with the AJSA forums, such topics only serve to drive a wedge in what should be a united community.
    Asking for information on the various platforms available and weighing their strengths and weaknesses is one thing, but two groups with their preconceived notions, each trying to force their opinions on others without a desire to better others or themselves in the process is quite another.
    We should be tearing and clawing at rival communities out on the metaphorical battlefield, not bickering amongst ourselves.
     
    But perhaps banning all such conversation would be too extreme a response. An overreaction, if you will.
    Perhaps it would be a better idea to make a rule that the minute a post pops up referring to either a "master race" or "peasants" the thread should be insta-locked.

    You know what this back and forth banter reminds me of... a discussion between console and pc. Just insta-lock the topic if it isn't supposed to be a console vs pc discussion, but it turns into one.  Also, anyone who starts a topic for the sole purpose of obvious trolling should get one warning before being banned. Insta-ban is never a good idea, unless it's spam.

    I'm sick and tired of this community jumping in the hoop about this debate. This disrespects the AJSA members who use console (or pc) and is inconsiderate about the history of video games.
     
    We are part of a community that has joined together for the love of video games and then we have members on the forums who wanna stir up shit about the PC vs Gaming debate. This causes nothing but conflict with other members.
     
    I propose a new forum rule where its a no-tolerance on the flame threads about PC vs Console. This self destructs the community and is just disrespectful.

    OP, I also wish Joe made more reviews at a faster pace but, do it like me! Just wait for them and simply dont watch his other content, specially if you have found issue with how you perceive Joe has been acting. All while definitely, not coming here and tossing around that baseless claim like if you need to repeat it a set amount of times for it to become true. 
    I get it trust me, you want more reviews but, try to be less dramatic, have more patience and do it preferably in silence...
  7. Verethragna liked a post in a topic by Tarvesh in Gamestop wants chunks of gameplay exclusive to their store   
    GameStop has had exclusive content for a while now. So has Best Buy. And Walmart. And Target. People just focus on GameStop cause it's sole purpose is to sell video game and gaming merchandise.
    This used to be GameStop's way of luring cutomers away from their competition. I think it's slowly starting to transition into a way to keep their sales numbers up as the next gen consoles begin offering day one downloads of their new releases.
    However, I don't think people should bother worrying or complaining about because it not only gives people the option for exta content, but also because exclusive DLC's rarely stay exclusive for more than a few months.
    So if GameStop wants to pay to have bonus content added to the game, go ahead and let them. We'll all get it eventually.

    It goes back to that car analogy you made earlier.
    Some people like digging through scrapyards, looking for the perfect pieces to make their own ride.
    Some just like rebuilding engines and knowing how to properly maintain the vehicle itself so they don't have to pay anyone else to do it.
    Some people just buy them in a shop, drive around in them, and fuck all else.

    Yeah, I know next to nothing about maintaining a PC as well.
    I don't even know anyone who does. So I'm double-screwed on that account.
     
    But a console? That's just like hooking up a VCR. And I know my VCRs. *Olllllllllllllllllllllllllld*

    Every platform has its good and bad and all of this is completely subjective.
     
    Stupid debate topic.
  16. Verethragna liked a post in a topic by fridgeracer in I just hate PC Gamer's and the Master Race.   
    debatable: i turn my pc on, press x box button on wireless controller, open steam, press windows key + P to change display and audio to the TV, go to couch sit down, press xbox button again to change steam to big screen, select a game and play. maybe on a console you have to press fewer things to get a game running but it's not like it's any harder or easier on the PC.
     
    debatable: upfront cost certainly is cheaper, and a decent price for the hardware you get given. however, there is no savings made among games or peripherals. controllers cost between £30 for unofficials to £50 for officials. all new games will cost between £40-50 and most of the time on the newest consoles, even higher than £50. now before i say this next sentence... yes, i know that a steam summer sale is only on for a selection of days in summer - < however, there's plenty of general sales all year long and there's always a seasonal sale, making at least 3 or 4 a year.
     
    i managed to get all the games i have been interested in on either console or PC for the past 2 years all in the space, recently, of a few days for £41. 16 games. i have checked, and the prices i paid for most of them, around £2-4 each, is impossible to get second hand on consoles from a local game store. they're all around £10 or £15, or £20 for 5 older titles but you still have to spend £20 up front and £40 would get you 10 games. not 16. and most of these games are a lot older than a couple of years. the games i got were mainly big triple a titles from no earlier than 2012. 
     
    so yes, console gaming is a cheaper upfront cost, and the hardware you get for that price is impressive. but they don't treat you in the same way on all their other products, and that's where they effectively get more money out of you where at the same time games are not performing as good as their PC versions.
     
    NOW... previously i was involved in discsussions and arguments with this here on how the console is more optimised for gaming and has more threads per cpu core and memory management and bla bla bla.... and ive done research a lot and these sort of statements are indeed correct, but it still remains that the vast majority of at least multi platform games that are eligible for comparison to a PC version, are often performing and looking better on the PC. however, the difference / margin of that is purely most of the time down to just FPS and resolution and a few smoother prettier looking physics. pretty much the new consoles and the latest mid range to just touching high end PC gaming hardware... the performance and quality you get is almost exactly the same.
     
    end of the day, i think it's fair to say all gamers just need to take their pick and be happy about their pick, or picks, and just play video games and live happily ever after, instead of join what i am now calling with myself the never ending "internet hate train" of endless hate and ill informed opinions about console vs PC.
     
    TLDR: console is really really good. PC is really really really good. gaming is  really really really really good. mmmkay.
     
    and on a final note... NOW... im going to watch the video. i can also confirm that the majorty of PC gamers who say master race are in fact just joking. the origins of that phrase was in fact just a joke to begin with. people who use it as a way of bashing are wrong. people who take offense from it are also wrong. that is all.
  17. Verethragna liked a post in a topic by Winnum in I just hate PC Gamer's and the Master Race.   
    Yes it is. Believe me console gamers do get it - but Console gaming is-
    easier: i buy game I put game in console I play game
    cheaper: £350 for PS4 equivalent PC £1000 at least or build it yourself for £700.
    generally more convenient I can pick up my Console put it in a bag and take it to work to play with me at the weekend cannot do that with my massive Desktop.
    People who game only on consoles have made these choices - it's like buying a car - do you want something economical that's going to get you from A-B or the big tricked out turbo charged version with leather seats and neon lights?
    Here's the thing NEITHER ANSWER IS WRONG.
    People just make the choices that make the most sense to them. PC gamers just seem to be annoyed at console gamers for..... reasons? Seriously this is a one way tide of abuse - no-ones on the other side saying 'Those PC gamers are dumb an their choices are incorrect'. Stop being so insecure and just let other people game the way they want.

    Both sides have their benefits and issues I think (Granted my view is a bit offside since I only recently tried to play more PC and generally failed.)
    Also, all that follow are my personal opinions and such. Hope this doesn't add fire to either side.
     
    So I tried to switch to PC when I wanted to pick up Guild Wars 2 (And I had Civilization 5 for like, 2 years and couldn't play it). It took me about 5 months (?) to actually have all the parts and get them running. The learning curve was insane, I don't relish the idea of trying again. Though I probably will have to, at least now I know exactly who I'm going to talk to in person when the time comes. Now granted, I do enjoy the games I play on PC since the old Age of Empires. Sadly, I can't play them on this thing (don't ask) so I don't play too much on it. I wanted to have some of the fun I heard about with game mods and the like, but I can't find those things so that idea crashed (Much like my PC would if I did find them I imagine.) And then I started hearing all the "PC MASTER RACE" crap and now I don't want to play PC as much. If the main thing I hear about PC gaming is just trashing on everything else, why would I want to? Luckily, I don't care much. Still hurts a little since most of my fond gaming memories are on console and it gets called garbage, but hey.
    Consoles on the other hand, I got to just put the disc in and play. Not much hassle (Though the whole "Next Gen" nonsense seems to be taking that away.) I got lucky and my stuff didn't break more than... 5 times? 3 were sega consoles, and the other two were 360 red rings (one had the warranty, so no worries). I don't know, always had more fun on the console games, and I can always go back and play older games. Can't do that for some of my old PC games because the software is too advanced or some nonsense or the screen looks weird or something happens.
    I lost track of myself. And against my better judgement to just delete everything, here you go. PC is confusing, consoles seem simpler, I try to play what I like on either side. 
    Also, the video seemed stupid about 2 minutes in so I stopped watching. I hate trolls.

    The whole 'PC vs Console' debate is feeble matter. Who the hell cares what you play on. I don't.
     
     
    Seriously if you feel you are truly above someone because you own a PC and they own a console, then you are a child.

    A PC will always have the potential to be better than any console in terms of technical power. However console also has it's own unique benefits that a PC does not. Both have their respective strengths and weakness. In the end, it is a tool that allows you to play something you love. To play something with your friends, family, AJSA etc. 
  24. Verethragna liked a post in a topic by fridgeracer in I'm Boycott all Ubisoft games, you with me?   
    a week ago i would have said yes, but... i put 12 hours into a new purchase: FC3 Blood Dragon and i loved every bit of it. it was pretty much a tribute to my childhood.
     
    because of this game and how the garrisons and collectibles and missions go, i am confident i will now be able to look past the initial things i don't like about far cry 3 and play through the whole thing.
     
    it's a ubisoft game that has opened me up to the idea that i actually might enjoy assasins creed games and looking out for far cry 4. both of these games (FC3 and Blood drag) do have a lot of options for graphics for the PC. you can even buffer your frames, first time i ever saw that on a game.
     
    i haven't tried watch dogs on PC and i'm not normally one to follow hype, but it can't be THAT bad... i'm pretty sure people just love to hate a lot nowadays, even if there's little reason. gotta love that hate train.
     
    so no, sorry mate, i give ubisoft some more chances in my book.
