    I've already had my '!@#$ING MONKEY' moment.

    Hi Guys just thought I'd share the Mario Kart joy. Game is awesome feels fantastic and looks amazing.
    Also a great addition and a first for Nintendo is letting you share your highlights or an entire replay on Youtube.
    The tradition of reusing old tracks continues but these have been completely redisigned to take advantage of the gravity defying themes as well as looking stunning with all new models and textures.
    Track design is so creative - it really does remind you why Nintendo are the kings of the Kart racer and why everything that isn't Mario Kart just feels... less. 
    And the Bowser's castle level is an absolute BOSS with fantastic music.
    Here's a highlights reel.

    And also channeling SSX there is now a level which is all down hill no laps first man across the line wins:
     

     
    Fun times.

    The game's out already!? Incidentally I went to the Estore earlier and it's playing Mario Kart type music.

    No one I know likes Shantae or Rust (for some reason).
  5. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Nya` in PC Gaming, is it reliable?   
    As you may already know a console build of a game is generally more stable than its PC counterpart due to the ease of coding and optimization. The developers are only working with one to three different hardware sets and as such they can fine tune the game for each platform. This is why console games are in general more stable, have less bugs and are able to operate to a certain degree of high visual fidelity and performance on what would be considered poverty level hardware in the PC gaming space.
     
    Here is the pitfall of this though, you're stuck with whatever the developer shovels you. You can't make it look better, you can't make it run better, you can't do anything but what they already dictated for you. Sure PC games sometimes come out in questionable states, however they get patched, they become further optimized, and they can be modded, in the end they all for the most part work perfectly fine.
     
    You think you're spending less money than a PC gamer by shelling out $400 for a console? You're most definitely not if you're actually purchasing games, even with a $700 PC the cost premium for games on the PC is less, sales happen far more often and new games go on sale quickly. You may be spending more up front but in the long run it will cost you much less game for game.
     
    Let's just say the life cycle for the PlayStation 4 will be 7 years, each year you buy about 15 games at an average price of $40 per game because you want to wait for a sale or get them second hand. That is $4,200 spent on games over the course of a 7 year period plus the cost of the console itself totaling $4,600.
     
    Now let's take that same 7 years and run through the realistic costs for a PC. You spend the initial $1,000 to get things going, that includes all the hardware, monitor, keyboard, mouse etc. You use the same logic and time frame as the console gamer and wait for sales on the games you want, you get these games for an average of $20 a piece totaling $2,100. So far you've only spent $3,100 leaving you with $1,500 to spare.
     
    Naturally you will need to upgrade certain things to continue to play newer games as the years go on. $250 on a new CPU 3.5 years in, $120 on a new motherboard 3.5 years in, $400 on a new GPU 3.5 years in and for safe measure $100 for more/newer ram with the final thing needed being increased HDD space costing another $120.
     
    You have a surplus of $510 above the console user, so to anyone who says console gaming is less expensive; they can shove off, it's honestly more expensive in the long run. On top of this your games will have much better performance, they will look better, you have functionality that is far beyond that of a console and you're spending less.
     
    What is there to think about? PC may not be a casual platform and not for everyone but if you're smart you will get better experiences than a console gamer and end up spending less money than them, it's kind of a no brainer.

    Or pull a CD Projekt and don't have any DRM at all. Pirates are going to find ways around things, and the more draconian your DRM is, the more people will pirate it. Pirates are going to pirate no matter what shit you do. It's best to deal with it and not punish the consumer for things that just aren't their fault.
  7. Variloh liked a post in a topic by Recoveryanonymous in Hype vs Quality in the Video Game industry   
    I personally think Watchdogs and Destiny are in the same boat as Titanfall as far as hype goes. I hope those two games are good, but I can't shake that nudging feeling that they won't be the second coming of Jesus either.
  8. By_zeus_beard liked a post in a topic by Recoveryanonymous in Will you buy the new Nintendo hardware?   
    Nintendo really needs to add a proper party chat system for the Wii U.
  9. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Nya` in Watchdogs.. Bit of a cop out.   
    Trust me I get what you're saying and because the source material was a poor choice for the OP you're playing devil's advocate and honestly propagating a fallacy when you know the OP is correct. The game looks nothing like they showed off at E3, it's watered down across the board not only visually but in density and what appears to be intricacy of gameplay.
     
    The OP is right, there is no other way to put it, Ubisoft does bullshots in video form and it's absolutely unacceptable, they should be sued.
  10. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Hwa in What game do you think will win GOTY 2014 based on the info of the games we know coming out?   
    Could care less about the general vote for goty(to many times its buggy open world crap imo),  to me will either be BB CP or P4A U easily.
  11. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by An Angry Albino in [Game] What is the above user known for?   
    known for also wanting games. 
  12. Null liked a post in a topic by Recoveryanonymous in New Smash Bros Characters.... but:   
    The gameboy color one is certainly a little archaic in the way it controls, but it was impressive in scope given the hardware it was on; it can get somewhat frustrating due to the sluggishness of the controls at times and just how close Shantae has to be to the enemy for her hair whip to work. I really enjoyed it regardless though. The second one has more fluid controls and is a bit easier overall in my opinion. If you have the five dollars, I'd say the first one is still worth checking out though.
     
    I also wish Waluigi was in the game, but the character that I really wish would make the roster is Lyn from Fire Emblem. She was an assist trophy in Brawl and is returning as such again I think.
  13. Null liked a post in a topic by Recoveryanonymous in New Smash Bros Characters.... but:   
    I know it would never happen, but I wish Shantae would show up.
  14. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by LaserBunny in What do you think about steam selling old games?   
    Unless steam sells them at a lower price than GOG I see no reason to buy from them. GOG has quality control, customer support, and no DRM. Steam just dumps garbage out there and let people sort it out.
  15. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by DemonsColt in What do you think about steam selling old games?   
    It would be good if we stop seeing all this bloody shovelware!

  18. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Faravahar1200 in I won an Xbone earlier, do I keep or sell it?   
    if you like xbox games keep it   if you already have another console then sell it to earn money  or if it's one of your best friends birthday this month or next then give it as a gift   .

    No FOV slider it won't take away our dear TB like that.
    Texture quality probably sucks too, he is most likely not impressed.

    It's TotalBiscuit. The cancer should be more scared of him at this point...
  22. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by LaserBunny in How Reliable is GoG?   
    It's nowhere close to some of the trash on steam and it also has historic significance.
  23. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by LaserBunny in How Reliable is GoG?   
    More reliable than steam. They actually have quality control and fix their games so they work on new machines.
  24. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Legolas_Katarn in How Reliable is GoG?   
    Probably the safest place to buy games online.
  25. Recoveryanonymous liked a post in a topic by Null in Gaming Pet Peeves   
    A certain Owl
    Bad writing/Lazy writing
    slippery shoes
    empty levels
    rubberband AI
    unskippable cutscenes
    lack of research when developing the game, so I just assume the devs are incompetent morons
    Games with jump buttons, but the button triggers a pre-rendered scene which makes for a lot of pit related deaths.
