    More of a PSA/ headsup kinda thing.
    Three of the best Gamecube/Wii games ever are now available in one Download from the eshop on sale for £8.99 for 1 week (ends 4th Feb)
    Not only are these games all awesome but for a game that currently commands bids of £100 plus on ebay this is just ridiculously good value.
    You will need a Wii Remote and Nunchuck I believe.

  14. Winnum liked a post in a topic by Mr_E_Meatshield in "PCMR" vs political correctness.   
    If someone just uses it as a joke between PC Gamers, then there's no problem. It's when someone uses it unironically and starts acting all High-and-Mighty and talks down on everyone who doesn't play on PC where things go wrong.
     
    Take Scumbag Steve vs Good Guy Greg:

     
    Where as Good Guy Greg

    Games on pc 
    doesn't give people sh*t about what platform they play on
    (I didn't make these, found them on Google)
     
    It's alright to love gaming on PC, or even say that it's the best platform to game on, it usually is depending on the hardware you have. But don't for a second think that excuses you from being an asshole to everyone else who doesn't share that view.
     
    It's also funny that whenever someone says that they don't like the "PC Master Race" term that they're "Butthurt console gamers". Because, hey everyone who plays on PC is down with the whole "Master Race" bit riiight? Standing up to PC Elitists is more akin to standing up to bullies.
     
    I love playing on the PC (laptop) and this thing can play games better than the PS4, but I'm not going to be spouting "PC Master Race" any time soon. I don't want to be associated with the PC Elitists (not that everyone who uses the term is one) who use it.
     
    The PC Gamer article misses what's wrong with the term by saying that it's because of the Nazi Connotation. Even though there are parallels between the "PC Master Race" term and the "Master Race" idea, the term in itself isn't the problem.
     
    Now before someone says "BS, what parallels?" The "Master Race" was co-opted by the Nazi party from the term "Übermensch", the same way the PC Gamers and PC Elitists co-opted the joke to fit them. As with the "Master Race" and the Nazis who thought they were above everyone else, the PC Elitists who use the term look down on everyone who doesn't play on PC, hence the terms like "Filthy Console Peasant" and such. It is this attitude that is what's wrong with using the term. It was this sort of attitude that turned people off of PC gaming as well.
     
    I identify myself as simply a Gamer, not PC Gamer, or Console Gamer. I play on whatever system I wish as long as they have games that interest me. I have no need for these "Master Race" or "Fanboy" in this hobby, and it is unfortunate that this sort of toxic attitude is often applauded and encouraged (more specifically the "Master Race" by PC Elitists).
     
    What needs to be done is to call out these "PC Elitists" for being assholes, and not treat them like they aren't doing anything wrong. You can state facts all you want, but don't be a dick and treat anyone like crap because of it. Doing so isn't about being offended or not, we're not supposed to be ok with assholes anyway. There really isn't any reason to tolerate these individuals.
     
    ---
    Just so that I'm clear, I'm making a distinction between PC Gamer and PC Elitist. Not all PC Gamers have elitist attitudes when it comes to gaming.
  15. Winnum liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in Update: Why is CoD so hated?   
    I only buy COD's for the single player campaign then i may have a quick go online then get rid of the game.  AW is the only one i actually gave a good go at on MP but i still got rid of it.
     
    The games are all the same and imo adding another level of verticality doesnt change the game at all.  The multiplayer is waaaaaaay too easy and full of snot nosed little brats who think because they have a mic it has to be used for everyone else to listen to whatever shit music they are into.  Non of the Devs Activision use to make the game have figured out what recoil is yet.  SMG's with supressors are still the god guns of the game at any range.
     
    Killstreaks need to be removed completely but heyho thats the only reason ppl play the MP is too attain the ultra super cool overpowered vehicle of death (though it has been toned down slightly in AW to the point where they are useless as everything is indoors)
     
    CODS where great many moons ago but now they are just milking the fans and the funny thing is the fans even know this but still line up every year to buy the same game they bought the year before.

  17. Winnum liked a post in a topic by Aquila in So, the reaction some people have to same sex romance in DA: Inquisition...   
    You gotta love the logic behind people who want to find reasons to hate on people or games.

    "I found out I could have sex with a man. Therefore this game is gay.
    ...I'm not gay for choosing to have sex with a man, this game is gay for allowing me to have sex with a man."

    Though truth be told I'm one of those people who likes to do everything that RPGs and sandboxes allow me to do, but claiming that this freedom ruins narrative is a bit silly to me?

    "You dared me to kiss this guy in truth or dare, you must be gay.
    What do you mean I could've said 'no'? It was a DARE. I'm not gay for doing it."

    I dunno, I should stop rambling.

    Then you got wrong. I'm simply saying that if you are a White Male as I am then you do not face the same challenges that women and ethnic minorities do.
    It's been proved over and over that employers have a tendency to hire those from their own cultural and socio political back ground because that's how they feel most comfortable. (In most cases this is subconscious) 
     The fact is that European Caucasian men are still the most privileged group of people on the planet. There is literally no glass ceiling for us if we work hard enough. You say I don't believe in Equality for white dudes? We're already on the top of the hill. I just don't like it when people stamp on the fingers of those trying to move on up.
  20. IrishRogue liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Super Mario 64 Fan-Made Remake In HD!   
    Actually I think it's ONLY the camera controls that would need tweaking, and it should be mentioned that whilst they were basic they were not that bad- in fact SM64 had some of the genuinely best camera controlls around for early 3D games, hell people were still getting it wrong 10 years later.

  21. Lhouraii liked a post in a topic by Winnum in XenoBlade Chronicles   
    I have played it and yes it is very good. If I had to describe it I would say it's kind of a cross between Final Fantasy and Dragon Age (this is not a very good description but it's the best I can give. 
    It's probably the last truly Great JRPG before Bravely Default came out - and the fact that the voice actors are all British (or at least doing a good impression) gives it an oddd quirkyness among the genre. 
    It was released pretty much at the end of the Wii's life cycle so only got a limited run so it's kind of rare (a bit like MGS Twin Snakes, Paper Mario Thousand Year Door and Metroid Prime Trilogy.)
    I would not be surprised if they did a rerelease or HD update close to the release of Xenoblade 2 as many people will have been drawn in by Shulk appearing Smash Bros.

  24. MadDemon64 liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Health Insurance BS   
    About five years ago I noticed that I was losing peripheral vision in my left eye. 
    Went to the optician= nothing wrong with the eye so booked a hospitaal appointment. After a brief consultation I had an MRI scan where it was discovered that I had a growth in part of my brain pressing against my optic nerve.
    After trialling with a drug therapy for a while the growth was only minimally diminished so I agreed with a neurosurgeon that the best thing to do was to remove it via surgery.  Whilst apparently what I had was relatively safe , the words, tumour, brain, and surgery next to one another are never fun.
    The one thing I never had to worry about- EVER - was money. Even when on medication I paid £7.50 (I think around $12 US give or take) whihc is the standard rate ANYONE in the UK pays for a prescription drug.No matter what that drug is or who makes it. 
    God Bless you NHS and I hope all the rotten money grubbing bastards who are trying to privatise you and make you a soulless money factory die of Hepititis A, B and C. 
  25. The Anti-Santa liked a post in a topic by Winnum in So, the reaction some people have to same sex romance in DA: Inquisition...   
    Point 1: To be clear all romance options in Dragon Age Inquisition are 100% optional, homosexual or heterosexual. If you heard different you heard wrong. Funny enough though, in real life it is 100% not a choice. Odd that.
    Point 2: Furthermore all the characters in Dragon Age are full characters with their own personalities. There is no character in Dragon Age who is just 'the gay one'. It's not Will and Grace: The Videogame
    Point 3: Saying "I don't want to see same sex couples in games." makes a person a homophobe in the same way that saying "I don't want to see black people in games," makes them a racist.  Gay people don't choose to be gay any more than people get to choose the colour of their skin. (again you get to do that in Dragon Age too Odd.)
    Point 4: (Possibly the most important one) Another person, real person, being gay does not harm you in any way. A fictional character being gay can not harm you in any way either.
