Re: Xbox One down on Wednesday

I think the point is that a lot of people put blind trust in technology, as if the internet was a benevolent thing created to bring happiness to the world. I have a much more cynical view of computers and the internet because I know how they actually work. I think it's important to realize however ...

EDIT: I think I get it now after reading the link.

Did anyone here experience this?

Perhaps another reason why PC gaming is better...

Re: Xbox One down on Wednesday

I definitely agree about smart home devices - the benefits for these companies far outweigh the utility for users...

Help me understand though - what does this have to do with Xbox Live being down on Wednesday (I assume this is what the title is about?)

For me criticizing the 8th gen consoles?


I love my PS3, but I can't name a single thing it did better than the PS4.

Re: Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

Gotta echo GTS and RetroStrife on this one. Nintendo Switch has done almost nothing to make it easy for 3rd party developers to get their titles on physical media. I, of course, don't mind purchasing digital titles, but I should absolutely get a discount for it. For example, in my Steam library ther...

Re: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate vs Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

But people on the web like to believe everything they see or hear? Yeah social media does bear influence. If it was ineffective, people would not use it, nor would they scramble for virtue signalling points or upvotes. It is not the Gaming PC / Anti Console Bias article that offends you, it is the ...

Re: Winter Banner = Best Ever

That makes me kind of sad! I guess I shouldn't really be surprised, as google has moved to emphasize the mobile site rankings. More people are using the mobile versions now. Hard to believe. I still don't have a smart phone! Just out of random curiosity, what kind of phone do you use? Don't you fin...

Re: RIP Wii Shop Channel to end service on January 31, 2019!

A reminder that the shop will close next week! sad to see it go. I still have 1000 points that I need to spend, possibly on an n64 or wiiware game. I've heard maboshi's arcade is good. Trying to decide, but should probably go with a wiiware game that I won't be able to get after the shop closes . W...

Re: Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

I'm sure the Critic is snickering as he reads these comments, but I believe his distaste for downloads traces back to when Sony got hacked in 2011. Has he reviewed any downloadable games since then? When the hack happened, 77 million accounts were compromised, and it was feared that credit card inf...
